NARUTO SHIPPUDEN Seriously Tries to Sell You "Mecha Naruto?"

Considering how when you Google ‘mecha Naruto,’ you get dozens of images of the character in a new game before you see one of him in he episodes he actually debuted in, I have a crazy suspicion that this two-parter might’ve been concocted just to establish that bonus skin. Show More Summary

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY... the Anime?

The way international licenses work, it’s hard to make heads or tails of which shows get imported, and when, or why. So, while we’ve been aware of MARVEL DISC WARS: THE AVENGERS since it started, we haven’t actually gotten to look further because - - shocker of shocks - - it isn’t actually being imported to America.

The Lamest JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE Episode

This episode was delayed for half of Friday. As I’d say whenever KILL LA KILL was late, in America it’s pretty much unfathomable for a show to be delayed a few hours after its scheduled airdate. Usually, the production company already delivered the ape/file well ahead of time. Show More Summary

BLEACH Ch. 595 Review

Pepe only wants to share his love with Byakuya Kuchiki, then use it to tear him apart. If he won't accept it, perhaps his zanpakuto will. The Good A lesser character would already be dead. I may be in the minority on this, but there's just something I enjoy about watching as the super-serious Byakuya is forced to contend with such an oddity as Pepe. Show More Summary

ONE PIECE Ch. 759 Review

The grand puppet-master of Dressrosa is finally faced with the pirates that have the will and ability to cut his strings, but he's not going to make this easy on Luffy and Trafalgar. On the other hand, Doflamingo might just regret fanning the flames of Luffy's anger. Show More Summary

AKAME GA KILL! #10 -- Kill the Show!

If I had to sum up AKAME GA KILL! in one word, it would have o be one I just made up: “Liefeldian”.

SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL Gets a Reprieve?

Finally, the best Sailor Guardian! Back when SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL first came out, I wrote a piece about how my expectations may have been set a bit too high for the series. Remembering things through the Nostalgia Filter™, I was not particularly enthralled by what I was seeing so much as I was the ideas I knew were going to be at play. Show More Summary

SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL Needs to Modernize

IT'S MAMORU CHIBA FROM THE BUS, BUN-HEAD After three episodes straight of recruitment, the Sailor Guardians finally get a lead on that mysterious crystal that the show seems to be named after.
