03A_c069

The common visual style of Japanese animation and comics is considered to have begun with the influx of the American versions of these two categories following the Second World War. The wide eyes and button noses of American toons were quickly adopted and over the years integrated with elements of Japan’s own artistic history to […]

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.

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 […]

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.
