by Weathermanon August 7, 2015
How does one review a show like Unbreakable Machine-Doll? It’s obvious from the moment you see the package that Doll has a built in fan base. And boy oh boy do they get catered to. There is a lot of really creepy stuff in this show. Set in a prototypical steam-punky England, there’s a school […]

Ranma 1/2

Review: “Ranma 1/2 Vol. 4” Can’t Learn New Moves

by Chad Boninon July 22, 2015
By the fourth volume of Ranma ½, there’s a certain precedent set. The cast and crew have their techniques down pat, but any sort of growth of a martial artist involves learning new skills. Ranma Saotome and his father have been living at the Tendo Dojo for a while now, but the goal to get […]
Freezing Vibration

Review: “Freezing Vibration” Leaves the Viewer Cold

by macattackon July 10, 2015
The Freezing franchise makes itself clear what kind of show it is from the moment you look at the box art on the DVD/Blu-ray cover.

Supposedly, Studio Ghibli is just taking a short hiatus after finishing this film, but many think it might be their last. One can only hope it’s not, since it would be a […]

Shirobako Main Cast As Industry

Review: “Shirobako” – How Anime, Friendships and Careers Are Made

by KarlOlsonon July 3, 2015
Anime and manga production as the topic of anime and manga is nothing new. However, it’s often an excuse to be meta in the context of a broader work, whether that’s members of the Genshiken sweating over a doujinshi right before before Comiket, or the titular character of Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun gradually roping all of […]
