"Baka and Test" Passes with Flying Colors

by Radical Ravenon 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 […]

"Gundam AGE Limited Edition Blu-ray Volume 1": This Is the AGE of ‘Are These Prices Serious?’

In contrast to the high turnover rate of the 90s, this gives fans a bit of breathing space between the big pushes. The previous series, Gundam 00, acquitted itself well, but seemingly failed to become a long term […]

by Chad Boninon March 22, 2012
One night, an angel crashed from the heavens and bonded with a perverted teenage boy; and thanks to her magical wish-granting technology, this angel will shake the lives of high schoolers who just want to be left alone. If Jeannie were secretly a world-destroying monster, nobody would exactly dream of her. Nor would Larry Hagman […]

"Peacemaker": Short and Sweet Beats Long and Angsty

by Maxie Zeuson March 20, 2012
The great thing about Peacemaker is that you don’t even have to pay attention to it to enjoy it. Paying attention might even be a bad idea–it would give you a chance to notice how familiar the characters and situations and storylines are. But watched casually, without too much concentration, it slips by easily and […]

"Arakawa Under the Bridge X Bridge": Unfunny X Unfunny

by Classic Speedyon February 27, 2012
There’s nothing deadlier than comedy that falls flat. For example: Arakawa: Under the Bridge X Bridge. I sat through this sequel series to the SHAFT comedy anime Arakawa: Under the Bridge mostly stone-faced. I smirked or chuckled occasionally but never laughed out loud. It’s a bad combination of being simultaneously too dry and too over-the-top, […]
