"When They Cry": The Devil's in the Delicious Details

Cute kids, isolated mountain village, curses revolving around festivals, and murder. Lots and lots and lots and lots of murder. Sounds like your standard Hollywood slasher flick. Admittedly, When They Cry bears more than a bit of a resemblance to one at first glance. But there’s a difference. When was the last time Hollywood actually […]

"Shonen Onmyouji" Vols. 3 and 4: Why We Don't Have Geneon to Kick Around Anymore ...

Shonen Onmyouji is a cheap-looking, feather-light series populated by cardboard characters, with all the appeal of an Ashlee Simpson concert without the lip-synching, lights or pyrotechnics. It’s the kind of thing you get when no one cares or spends any money on a show. It’s the kind of thing that helps explain why we don’t […]

"Nerima Daikon Brothers" Box Is Anime for the Neck Downwards

Nerima Daikon Brothers may be the stupidest TV show I’ve ever seen, and that is absolutely not intended as an insult.
