Review: “Solty Rei Complete Series” – 1985, Is That You?

by Weathermanon September 23, 2015
Some reviews write themselves: “It’s great!” or “I’d rather gargle with razor blades!” Some reviews don’t. Solty Rei is most certainly the latter. There’s certainly a lot about it that isn’t good, but there’s just enough that is to make for a interesting but frustrating experience. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Grizzled detective/private […]

Review: “Code:Breaker” Has Too Many Broken Parts

by macattackon September 21, 2015
I did not have high hopes for Code:Breaker upon sitting down to watch it. I have been a reader of the long-running manga, and I knew the story, at a mere 13 episodes, would either be incomplete or end on an original note that likely would not be satisfying to me. As a result, I began […]

Review: “Michiko & Hatchin” Complete Series Blu-ray is Criminally Compelling

by Neo Yion August 28, 2015
Cynicism is a rampant beast. At its worst, a cesspool of negativity and hopelessness. In the world of Michiko & Hatchin, cynicism dominates its rural streets. Crime is frequent and violent, children are treated as objects to be sold, regular folks are forced into uncompromising situations, and survival is a fact of life. For nine-year-old […]

Review: “Space Dandy Season 2 Blu-ray (UK Edition)”: Make Room For Seconds, Baby

by Grant Whiteon August 25, 2015
Space Dandy, as the opening to nearly every episode informs us, is a dandy guy in space. In many ways, that’s about all you need to know going into the show even as it begins its second season, though there are of course wider details. Dandy resides in a familiar anime vision of the future […]

Review: “Guilty Crown Complete Series” – The Crime of Being a Mess

by macattackon August 10, 2015
On the surface, Guilty Crown has a lot of what it takes to be a spectacular sci-fi action series. It has a near-future societal outlook. It borrows liberally from recent headlines detailing biological outbreaks and social unrest (perhaps it even hits harder for Americans due to the increasing Ebola scare). It has creative, unique mecha […]
