"Wandaba Style" Vol. 1: Can Mix Juice "Rocket To Stardom?"

The Spice Girls were the biggest “big thing” in girl group history.

But can the States handle a combination of the two? When the polar personalities of the […]

Should You Be Hot For "Please Teacher?"

So, you’ve essentially been in a coma for three years. That’s a bummer. You have to move into a new town, go to a new school, fake that you’re fifteen… and imagine all the television you missed. But when a hot alien babe is your teacher, can you get past your unique physical disability of […]

"Lady Death" Reincarnated on DVD

When Hope, unknowing daughter of Lucifer, is killed for her father’s sins, she takes up the offer for a life in Hell rather than experience a horrific death via torching. But as Lucifer is the Lord of Lies, Hope soon learns the true fate of her loved ones, and sets out on a course to […]

"Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie": The Tedium of the Cards

On the heels of the celebrity poker trend comes Yu-Gi-Oh! the Movie, starring the self-proclaimed “king of the cards.” You won’t find him running the tables in Vegas, though.

"D.N.Angel" Steals the Viewers Heart like Dark Steals Art

Daisuke Niwa was pretty much your average teenage kid.

We join him on his 14th birthday, when he thinks he’ll be able to turn that clumsy […]

"Cyber Team in Akihabara Vol.1": A Little Old-Fashioned Kitsch Never Hurt Anyone

Short Notice: Super-Milk Chan's Gone Bad

Super-Milk Chan is easily the least amount of fun I’ve had watching an animé in recent years.
