by Chad Boninon August 27, 2015

Space Dandy

Review: “Space Dandy Season 2 Blu-ray (UK Edition)”: Make Room For Seconds, Baby

by Grant Whiteon August 25, 2015
Space Dandy, as the opening to nearly every episode informs us, is a dandy guy in space. In many ways, that’s about all you need to know going into the show even as it begins its second season, though there are of course wider details. Dandy resides in a familiar anime vision of the future […]

Review: “Guilty Crown Complete Series” – The Crime of Being a Mess

by macattackon August 10, 2015
On the surface, Guilty Crown has a lot of what it takes to be a spectacular sci-fi action series. It has a near-future societal outlook. It borrows liberally from recent headlines detailing biological outbreaks and social unrest (perhaps it even hits harder for Americans due to the increasing Ebola scare). It has creative, unique mecha […]
Unbreakable Machine Doll

Review: “Unbreakable Machine-Doll” Is Highly Defective

by Weathermanon August 7, 2015
How does one review a show like Unbreakable Machine-Doll? It’s obvious from the moment you see the package that Doll has a built in fan base. And boy oh boy do they get catered to. There is a lot of really creepy stuff in this show. Set in a prototypical steam-punky England, there’s a school […]

Dragon Ball Z Resurrection F

Review: “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F'” – New Uses For Old Toys

by Chad Boninon August 3, 2015
Decades ago, the fate of the Saiyans, ruthless planet-conquering mercenaries, was sealed. Their employer, the maleveolent Lord Frieza, had learned that their survival would lead to his ultimate downfall, and wiped out their planet and its entire population. A few survivors would work under him for a time, most notably Prince Vegeta of the Saiyans; […]

Freezing Vibration

Review: “Freezing Vibration” Leaves the Viewer Cold

by macattackon July 10, 2015
The Freezing franchise makes itself clear what kind of show it is from the moment you look at the box art on the DVD/Blu-ray cover. It’s undoubtedly another “buxom women fighting each other” series, and the show heaps on panty shots, strategically torn clothing (possibly outdoing the infamous Ikki Tousen franchise in that department), and […]

Review: “Tokyo Ravens” Season One Part One – Taking Flight

by macattackon May 8, 2015
Another review, another anime series based on a light novel series. It would be so easy to just go “ho hum,” right? Light novels have almost supplanted manga as source material for anime adaptations, and while there might be any number of reasons why the format is so appealing, it is a trend that feels […]

A Certain Scientific Railgun

Review: “A Certain Scientific Railgun” Season One – More Bang, Less Inane

by macattackon April 27, 2015
The success of the light novel A Certain Magical Index quickly spawned a spinoff manga, A Certain Scientific Railgun, which starts off as a prequel but soon becomes concurrent with the Index storyline. With the immense popularity of the first season of the Index anime, it’s unsurprising that J.C. STAFF would launch an anime adaptation […]
