Review: “Jormungand” is Loco…in a Good Way

by macattackon March 28, 2014
Jormungand is an interesting anime based off a manga by Keitaro Takahashi, both of which expect you to root for bad guys against other bad guys. It is a show that expects you to have full tolerance of people getting their heads blown off. It expects you to put any qualms aside about the violence […]

by macattackon January 21, 2014
The term “born lucky” has been around for a long time, so it’s kind of amazing no anime series has attempted to take the term and run with it to its natural conclusion: that being born lucky will somehow decide the fate of the world. Finally, one anime has, and that is Good Luck Girl! Good […]

Black Lagoon Roberta's Blood Trail

Review: “Black Lagoon: Roberta’s Blood Trail” Deserves to Be Followed

by Ed Liuon January 8, 2014
Black Lagoon is one of my favorite anime series, with its over-the-top aesthetic and blacker-than-black sense of humor masking a show of surprising depth. Black Lagoon: Roberta’s Blood Trail is the latest installation, released on a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack last year by FUNimation. The last animated story arc, “Fujiyama Gangsta Paradise,” was a sprawling epic […]

by Chad Boninon January 3, 2014
All the girls love him, with most wanting to take advantage of both his body and his unnatural superpowers. He’s a sweet and kind guy, although a little oblivious, and is thrust into a world he doesn’t understand. His name is Tenchi Masaki- wait, no… this is about Kenshi Masaki, Tenchi’s half-brother. Kenshi has been […]

When it comes to reviewing any product, it is good to know that the review is impartial, honest, and objective; looking at the product with fresh, critical eyes and, in turn, guiding the reader through a fair appraisal of that said product. I think any reviewer worth his bag of chips would stand by that, […]
We Without Wings

Review: “We Without Wings” Complete Series: Needs Flying Lessons

by Dr. Daedaluson December 4, 2013
There’s nothing worse than untapped potential. We Without Wings: Under the Innocent Sky falls into this category; it’s one of the most frustrating anime series I’ve watched as of late. I say it’s frustrating because the premise is actually pretty cool and inventive: A guy has the ability to travel dimensions, thus occupying four different […]
