Review: "Attack on Titan" Pt. 1 - Titanic Successes with Towering Flaws

Attack on Titan Eren vs. Colossal Titan

Attack on Titan became a buzzword that broke out of anime fandom rapidly, attracting a lot of attention from general audiences. However, I’m left with very mixed feelings after watching the first 13 episodes on FUNimation’s Attack on Titan Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. On the one hand, the series quickly creates a richly detailed world infused […]

Review: "Attack On Titan Part 1- Blu-ray (UK Edition)": FEE FI FO FUM, I SMELL QUALITY AND THEN SOME!

AttackOnTitan_Part1_3

If you look at the fairy tales many of us grew up with, there are several common elements: brave knights, beautiful princesses, evil sorcerers, and, of course, giants. It’s a fairly simple concept- take something commonplace like a person or animal and transform it to something several times bigger. A stomping leviathan that makes the […]

Review: "Eureka Seven" Blu-ray - The Series is Great, the Movie is...

Eureka Seven Blu-ray

This is the story of a boy and a girl, a sky-surfing robot, a war between rebels and the military, and religion that drives people to prominence or destruction. Eureka Seven is a sci-fi mecha series from nearly a decade ago, and thanks to some shuffling of licenses behind the scenes, FUNimation has released the […]

Review: "Robotics;Notes Part Two" - Hitting the Right Notes

Robotics;Notes Part Two

WARNING: Spoilers for the first volume of Robotics;Notes are sprinkled in this review. The problems with adapting visual novels to animation are plentiful. You need to satisfy a built-in audience who have their preferred routes in mind, along with any potentially preferred romantic partners for the lead character. You need to distill important plot elements that […]

Review: "Robotics;Notes Part One" - A Slow-Burn With Little Fire

splash-roboticsnotes01

Production I.G. had two shows premiere on Fuji TV’s noitamina block in Japan on October 11, 2012. One was Psycho-Pass, and the other is Robotics;Notes. The two shows could not be any more different. Psycho-Pass is a dreary look at the future, a cyberpunk dystopia that is ever so thinly veiled as a utopia. Robotics;Notes looks at the […]
