Review: "Space Battleship Yamato" - Battlestar Yamato Doesn't Quite Take Off

by Ed Liuon May 22, 2014
The original Space Battleship Yamato TV series was one of my gateways to anime, although it was called Star Blazers at the time and we didn’t have a fancy special word for it other than, “that cool Japanese cartoon.” Leiji Matsumoto’s space epic was gripping to a generation for whom Star Wars was the latest […]

Review: "Sekirei" Double Seasons, Double Formats, Double-Ds

by Chad Boninon May 20, 2014
The Sekirei Plan is on! The Sekirei are 108 humanoid girls trained to fight and defeat each other using special powers that are unlocked when they kiss their Ashikabi, a regular guy or girl that they’ll work with to survive.

Review: "Blood-C: The Complete Series" - A Superlative, Subversive Slaughter

by macattackon May 12, 2014
Blood-C is what happens when you tell Tsutomu Mizushima, the director behind randomly violent, randomly strange, randomly funny, crosses the line twice comedies like Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-Chan and Magical Witch Punie-Chan to make an entry in the “Blood” horror franchise. Yes, much of what Blood-C turns out to be should also be credited to Jun’ichi […]

Review: "Ikki Tousen" Great Guardians & Xtreme Xecutor - Rip-Off Artists

by Dr. Daedaluson April 23, 2014
I’m about to review Ikki Tousen, and to paraphrase Roger Ebert, this may astound you, but I’m giving it a positive review (Siskel: “It DOES astound me. Are you okay?”). Why did I like this series but loathe similarly-fanservice heavy titles like Highschool dxd? If you’ll indulge me for a moment, let me take you […]

Dragon Ball Z‘s first 53 episodes might have been a bit rocky in comparison to modern anime dubbing practices. The soundtrack was replaced, character names were […]

Review: "Future Diary" Complete Series - Bloody Awful

by macattackon April 16, 2014
If there is one thing I can give The Future Diary credit for, it is being memorable. Unfortunately, I can only call it memorable for the wrong reasons in almost all cases, as the series wound up becoming a incoherent mess. The Future Diary was once better known as its Japanese title, Mirai Nikki, for a […]
