Review: "Attack on Titan" Pt. 1 - Titanic Successes with Towering Flaws

Attack on Titan Eren vs. Colossal Titan

Attack on Titan became a buzzword that broke out of anime fandom rapidly, attracting a lot of attention from general audiences. However, I’m left with very mixed feelings after watching the first 13 episodes on FUNimation’s Attack on Titan Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. On the one hand, the series quickly creates a richly detailed world infused […]

Review: "Attack On Titan Part 1- Blu-ray (UK Edition)": FEE FI FO FUM, I SMELL QUALITY AND THEN SOME!

AttackOnTitan_Part1_3

If you look at the fairy tales many of us grew up with, there are several common elements: brave knights, beautiful princesses, evil sorcerers, and, of course, giants.

Production I.G. had two shows premiere on Fuji TV’s noitamina block in Japan on October 11, 2012. One was Psycho-Pass, and the other is Robotics;Notes. The two shows could not be any more different. Psycho-Pass is a dreary look at the future, a cyberpunk dystopia that is ever so thinly veiled as a utopia. Robotics;Notes looks at the […]

Review: "Date A Live" Decidedly NOT Second-Date Material

Date A Live

Oh, Japan. My love/hate relationship with you will likely never end. Date A Live is based on a light novel series of the same name that is currently running in Japan. 30 years before the start of the series, the first of many “spacequakes” claimed the lives of 150 million people. Date A Live is […]
