by macattackon January 12, 2015
With this review, High School DxD has the dubious honor on Toonzone of being the first anime franchise that necessitated a change in reviewers from one season to the next due to its content alone.

Review: "Karneval" - You Don't Always Need 3 Rings, Sometimes 1 Is Plenty

by Weathermanon January 7, 2015
Carnivals evoke thoughts of cotton candy, vaguely maintained rides and probably rigged games. Karneval is none of those things. It’s an action-adventureish series that is really more of a character study in disguise. The character being studied is Gareki, a loner and professional thief for various angst-filled reasons who spends his days looking for easy […]

by Chad Boninon December 15, 2014
It’s time to reboot the system and the timeline.

The Devil is a Part-Timer!

Review: "The Devil Is A Part-Timer!" is Full-Time Fun

by macattackon December 12, 2014
The Devil is a Part-Timer! is a hard show to classify. It is not an “action” show, since there aren’t enough action sequences to make it qualify as such. It is not a drama, since there are too many comedic sequences, but it’s not a pure comedy either, as the dark backstory of the main […]

Review: "Red Data Girl" is Shortsighted

by Chad Boninon December 5, 2014
In the modern era, can you imagine a teenage girl blindly wandering through life without her cell phone, a Facebook page, or even an iPod? Izumiko is that girl, having lived a sheltered life at an ancient shrine hidden in the forest. More country bumpkin than city bigwig, she’s a shy wallflower in high school […]

Review: "Sailor Moon" A Moonlight Night's Dream or Nightmare?

by Chad Boninon November 27, 2014
Fighting evil by moonlight, winning love by daylight, reignited for a new fight: it’s the series called Sailor Moon. It’s been years since four-fifths of the iconic pretty guardians appeared on American shores, and while their impact on American pop culture and the animation industry left a definite impact, many fans feel that the series never had […]

Review: "Road To Ninja: Naruto the Movie" - The Road to a Vital Shonen Film

by macattackon November 25, 2014
Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie is the ninth theatrical film depicting the characters of the Naruto franchise. It’s hard to believe, considering the diminishing returns of the theatrical films since the beginning of the Shippuden films. The last two movies, The Lost Tower and Blood Prison, didn’t even earn back their budgets in Japan. […]
