Review: “Summer Wars” Is a Digital Delight

by Neo Yion February 3, 2017
One of my fondest memories from my youth were the annual family reunions. As I stood and watched the nearly 30 – 40 people I was related to – whether through blood or marriage – I was overcome with a powerful sense of pride; “The Yi Clan” as I affectionately would say to myself. I haven’t […]

Review: “Blood Blockade Battlefront” Has Potential Held Hostage

by macattackon February 1, 2017
Blood Blockade Battlefront is a title whose pedigree matters more to Western anime fans than to the nation it came from. After all, the manga is drawn and written by Yasuhiro Nightow, renowned in the West for creating Trigun and to a lesser extent Gungrave, both of which had much more impact on our shores than in their […]

Review: “Yona of the Dawn” Part 1 Brings a Winning Fantasy Adventure

by Todd DuBoison July 26, 2016
Well-done fantasy is a special treat in Japanese animation (and the medium at large, for that matter), but well-done fantasy with a woman as the key and non-subordinate figure is a downright rare experience. But Studio Pierrot’s Yona of the Dawn delivers on both counts and joins Moribito and Twelve Kingdoms as a sterling example […]

Review: “CubexCursedxCurious” Blu-Ray/DVD is CrassxClichexCrummy

by Neo Yion July 25, 2016
I thrive off bad entertainment. Shows with an utterly inane premise or a certain level of awfulness makes it worth sitting through for sheer notoriety alone. Sure, the product is bad, but at least you can laugh at it, so there’s a consolation prize. CubexCursedxCurious (or C3 for short) held exactly the kind of nonsense plot […]

by Peter Paltridgeon July 22, 2016
Some characters are recycled endlessly — it’s just a given that every few years we’ll get another Tarzan movie, another Sherlock Holmes movie, another Robin Hood movie, another Peter Pan movie, etc. In Japan that immortal character is Godzilla, and the giant radioactive lizard is scheduled to make his latest return to the shore very […]
