sengoku-basara-1

Early on in Sengoku Basara: The Last Party, two characters joyously receive news so good that they proceed to beat the crap out of each other. In fact, it leaves them so deliriously happy that during the fight one of them actually kills the other. The killer feels kind of bad about this for a […]

thumb-dirtypairedencic

It reminds me of the best Maurice Binder opening sequences to the James Bond movies, using powerfully evocative imagery to create a distinctive artistic statement […]
