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 […]

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.

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

by Classic Speedyon 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.

by Classic Speedyon November 6, 2013
Haganai, much like The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, involves a group of misfits creating an unorthodox after-school club.  In this case, Average Male Protagonist Kodaka and ice queen Yozora start a club devoted simply to making new friends.  They don’t have any peripheral activity, which makes you wonder why an official club was needed in […]
