Review: "Toys in the Attic is a Darker, Grimier Take on What Your Toys Do When You're Not Around

Toys in the Attic Thumbnail

Toys in the Attic, Hannover House’s 2012 English adaptation of Jiri Barta’s 2009 Czech Republic stop-motion film In The Attic: Who Has A Birthday Today?, is a story about toys that come to life when humans aren’t around. I realize that this is going to draw comparisons to Pixar’s much beloved Toy Story series, so […]

So afraid that during their […]

Transformers Prime - "Out of the Past" Episode 43 Recap

OutofthePast3

Origin stories are usually hit-or-miss with me. Much of what they’re telling are events we already knew about, so further elaboration tends to be repetitive and unnecessary. “Out of the Past” does suffer from this, since it explains how Arcee and Cliffjumper became partners and eventually end up on Earth. It doesn’t advance the overall […]

"Shakugan no Shana" Season 1: Why So Serious?

04shana

Wow, 2012 hasn’t been a good year for me when it comes to anime.  Rosario+Vampire, Arakawa Under the Bridge X Bridge, Sekirei, Motto To Love Ru, Panty & Stocking, Infinite Stratos … I haven’t been crazy about very many of them.  And now we have Shana, which sadly doesn’t reverse the trend. Unlike the previous […]

Review: "Fairy Tail Part 3 (UK Edition)": I Believe Slightly Less In Magic

Fairy_Tail_3_7

The last volume of Fairy Tail ended pretty tensely, with the guild hall in ruins, the guild’s master possibly on his death bed, and the members themselves locked in a battle with a giant, magically powered doomsday robot controlled by their arch rival. Those are some pretty high stakes, and as this set opens the […]
