Review: "Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Apocalypse Saga": Deserved Endings

UtenaApocalypse11

The so-called “Apocalypse Saga” of Revolutionary Girl Utena proves itself a welcome progression on the “Black Rose Saga” from Nozomi Entertainment’s second DVD set and a return the essence of the first story arc.

zombie-featured

Let’s be real for a moment. It’s 2013, and zombies and zombie humor have become so culturally rampant that even complaining about their over exposure is itself a bit trite and played out.

ghastlyenma-3

Remember the 2004 Cutie Honey OAV?  It was something of a nostalgic throwback to the ’70s TV series, a lot more wacky than the gritty mid-90s OAVs and blending retro and modern designs.  Well, Ghastly Prince Enma Burning Up is a similar kind of thing.  I haven’t seen the original series, but based on this […]

Review: In "Shangri-La," Paradise Is Where You Find It

shangrila-5

One of the things I like and respect about anime is the willingness of so many of its producers to tackle unusual stories and situations. Unlike most American productions, which even at their most challenging often trot out the same few very familiar character types and situations, anime series aren’t always afraid of baffling viewers […]
