How Is NARUTO Like DOCTOR WHO? Catching Up with SHIPPUDEN #371 - 373

The gang's all here. I experienced two blasts from the past this week, one a tad more literal than the other. First were episodes 371 – 373 of NARUTO SHIPPUDEN, some of the last of the franchise. The original NARUTO not only took the world of shonen series by storm, it reignited my own interest in anime during my college years. Show More Summary

Were All of Goku's Pals in DRAGON BALL Once his Enemies?

Well, that’ll happen when you a saga in piecemeal (like I’ve done with DRAGON BALL)… When Launch showed up while I was re-watching the ‘Saiyan Saga,’ I figured she was a filler character on the same order as that robot Gohan encounters in the cave. Show More Summary

Anime Inspires Comics :: the THANATOS DIVER Interview

You lunatics might remember Nick Tapalansky and Alex Eckman-Lawn. They're creators I know from the American comics scene, and are both heavily influenced by anime and manga. For a while, they were writing OTAKU COMING HOME here, an editorial series detailing their travails as Eastern-inspired fans/artists. Show More Summary

BLEACH Ch. 593 Review

It's not that Captain Hitsugaya can't lose this fight. He can't win it either. He's fallen victim to one of Captain Kurotsuchi'swicked tricks. One that has created a literal no win situation. The Good I don't think the word "consent" is even in his mental dictionary. Show More Summary

Checking Back on SPACE DANDY and... He's Cleaned Up His Act?

I always figured that Watanabe would eventually get around o clarifying his… attitudes here, but nevertheless, SPACE DANDY #1 will always stand out as one of the most unintentionally hilarious moments in anime for me. FUNi and AdultShow More Summary

ONE PIECE Ch. 757 Review

This would have been so much more heroic if everything leading up to it hadn't been so misogynist.Bartolomeo shows his worth as he pushes his limits to give Luffy and Law a step up, Sabo is in a heated battle with Fujitorathat is sure...Show More Summary

What's Consistent About HUNTER X HUNTER #143 -- Special Review

I had ambivalent feelings, walking away from the ‘Chimera Ant’ saga. It wasn’t that I disliked HxH; I was just frustrated that these appealing characters weren’t in a plot they deserved. When hat happened, I realized my reluctance was a result of one part of the shonen formula. Show More Summary

NARUTO Ch. 689 Review

Look, Sakura was useful, everyone. With Kakashi has guide, Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke combine their power to complete Team 7's final mission to seal Kaguyafor good. The Good Pretty sneaky, fellas. The most enjoyment I got out of this chapter was in the strategy of the combat. Show More Summary

This is Krillin's Origin in DRAGON BALL #14?

Nations may rise and stocks may fall, seasons will change and the stars can fall from the sky… …but we can always go back to DRAGON BALL, can’t we? I’m not going to fall into the fallacy of saying that all anime of the 80’s was better than anime today; but it’s still fun to revisit a series that’s stood the test of time the way this has.

Taichokage (manga and 1999 anime only) and RubberLuffy will be your guides on that. Show More Summary

Parting Ways with AKAME GA KILL!

Oof. I had this same issue with CHAIKA, THE COFFIN PRINCESS… I realize it’s all fantasy at the end of the day, but there’s something about the specific sight of a gal pulling a BFG out (and a sniper a rifle, at that!) in a pseudo-medieval setting. Show More Summary

JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE : STARDUST CRUSADERS #21 -- Special Review

To be fair, all stripes of pulp serial are going to find a way to resurrect their heroes eventually. However, while American superhero comics will reach for all sorts of convoluted processes to bring people back (time bullets?), it amuses...Show More Summary

Community Spotlight 8/22/2014

Greetings, Anime Vice Community! So, the front page may have seemed a touch lonely since WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP was off for the week due to the Obon festival in Japan. Tom still gave you plenty of content to absorb. There was an interesting...Show More Summary

Comparing ALDNOAH ZERO #3 to CODE GEASS

Okay, the reveal of the princess’ secret identity was a good wist. No question there, but... it really should’ve happened in the second episode. It’s worth bringing up CODE GEASS as a comparison point here. That show was also a mecha...Show More Summary

AKAME GA KILL! is... OK for a Harem Show?

You know… you guys are right. The harem aspects of this set-up have already gotten a lot harder to sit through. That said, I’d still give this a so-so verdict because the underlying story is actually pretty well plotted out. And by ‘plotted,’...Show More Summary
