Review: “RE:Cyborg 009” Is Upgraded for the 2010s, For Better or Worse

by Chad Boninon January 7, 2016
Abducted by a terrorist organization years ago, nine human beings from around the world were modified into ruthless killing machines, but they retained their consciences and decided to defend the world as a group of cyborgs with extraordinary powers! This was many years ago, and nearly three decades later, they’ve all gone their separate routes. […]

Review: “Robot Carnival”: In Perfect Working Order

by SB20xxon January 5, 2016
Funny story: The other day I saw a pig shoot through the air. At first, I thought my mind was playing tricks on me, so I cleaned my glasses. No, there it was: A flying pig. Wings and everything. I knew they were experimenting with genetics, but wow! This is going to make them a […]

The Dragon Ball Z Gang Is Now Selling Cars — In America

by Peter Paltridgeon December 29, 2015
If Pokemon turning 20 wasn’t enough of a sign that you’re getting old, this surely is: Dragon Ball Z characters are appearing in commercials selling American cars. It’s a strange marriage of culture that hasn’t been seen since Speed Racer was driving a Volkswagen twenty years ago. Krillin and Gohan are about to use the […]

Review: “Tokyo Ravens Part 2” – Chasing the Light

by macattackon December 8, 2015
NOTE: This review spoils the first half of Tokyo Ravens. Also, although she’ll likely never read this, I would like to apologize to composer Maiko Iuchi for mistaking her as male in my earlier reviews of her work. I enjoyed the first half of Tokyo Ravens immensely, despite the mixed bag in quality I have […]

Review: “BlazBlue: Alter Memory” Fails to Ignite

by macattackon December 2, 2015
Sometimes it is hard to sum up something in just one sentence. BlazBlue: Alter Memory made it all too easy, and not in a good way. You can’t please everybody, but BlazBlue fails to please anyone at all. BlazBlue has an interesting narrative concept, based on the best-selling fighting video game series. It is a […]

Review: “Mobile Suit Gundam Part 1 (UK Edition)”: Gundam Calling To The Faraway Towns

by Grant Whiteon November 30, 2015

Review: “Wanna Be the Strongest in the World” Doesn’t Aim High Enough

by Chad Boninon November 23, 2015
The world of idols: very competitive. The world of wrestling: very competitive. Both are heavily manufactured and are more about flash and style, but do require some talent. Singers need to at least hit a certain note and pitch, and wrestlers need to be able to withstand and dish out some amount of torment. Japanese […]
