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. What started as a game turns dark as Tokyo’s sealed off and fights get brutal. […]

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 […]


Review: “Dragon Ball Z: Rock The Dragon” Is the Home for Infinite Losers (plus, Season 1 and 2 Blu-rays)

by Chad Boninon April 21, 2014
Did you ever rock the dragon? Nearly two decades ago, Dragon Ball Z made its first splash on American shores in syndication, soon followed by its legendary Toonami run. 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 […]

One Piece Strong World 2

Review: “One Piece Strong World” – Rumble in the Jungle

by Dr. Daedaluson April 7, 2014
Yes, I’m reviewing anime again. Yes, I’m reviewing One Piece: Strong World. No, I’m not Jacob. No, I haven’t seen the majority of One Piece episodes. But that shouldn’t matter; a movie should be able to stand on its own and not rely on the viewer’s knowledge of the series on which it was based. […]
