"Naruto Shippuden The Movie 2: Bonds (UK Edition)": That’s MY Way Of The Ninja!

by Grant Whiteon April 25, 2012
Naruto is a series I have an odd off-again, on-again relationship with. I’d been following it since just shortly before its massive push in America. A lot had happened in the story by that point, so right as a bunch of new fans were getting interested, my own interest was on the decline. I continue […]

"Puella Magi Madoka Magica" LE Vol.1: Possibly Worth The Price?

by on April 23, 2012
Puella Magi Madoka Magica–or as it is colloquially known, Madoka–is probably one of the most anticipated and intensely discussed anime since The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, if not Neon Genesis Evangelion. It’s easy to see why: it successfully balances a radical destruction and recontextualization of the tropes and metaphors typically in play in one of […]

"Fairy Tail Part 1 (UK Edition)": Guilded Love

by Grant Whiteon April 17, 2012
Fairy Tail is set in an alternate reality where magic is a very real commodity, sold, traded and used by wizards for various tasks. The wizards themselves are grouped into various guilds, and one of the most infamous is Fairy Tail, famed for having completed a great number of quests and slaying a great number […]

"Sekirei: Pure Engagement": Less Impure, Less Engaging

by on April 10, 2012
There’s something different about Sekirei: Pure Engagement, the second DVD release from the Sekirei franchise. The first season, you may recall, was a bouncy fan-service show that also had an actual plot with actual characters, and that tried to use its fan-service in evocative or funny ways. It seemed to be trying to be classy […]

"Sekirei" Season 1 (Re-release): Boobies Do Not a Good Show Make

by SB20xxon April 9, 2012
Boobies! Now that I’ve got your attention, read the review. Sekirei is yet another entry in the tired “battle royale” genre of anime, where super-powered women duel to the death against each other in the hopes of winning “the game”. In this show’s case, the heroine is a sweet, extremely well-endowed gal named Musubi, a […]

by on April 3, 2012
Yamada has made it to high school with one goal in mind: to have sex with one hundred people. Sure, it sounds like the plot of any number of American Pie spin-offs (or National Lampoon spin-offs, or Porky’s spin-offs, or… you get the idea). The twist? Yamada’s the female lead, and she willingly wants to […]

"Baka and Test" Passes with Flying Colors

by on March 29, 2012
Don’t be fooled by its shonen trappings: while it features some pseudo-battles and quite a bit of fan-service, Baka and Test is a romantic underdog story at heart, sort of a sexy Japanese Peanuts. The show deals with the lowest-ranked class in Fumizuki Academy, a school where students can battle each other with avatars powered […]
