When JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE Gets Really Gross...

I suppose it was only inevitable. Between Kakyoin’s cherry “luh-luh-luh-luh-luh” ick and Polnareff’s peak-a-boo with the piggy, we were going to see Araki’s odd… interests colliding sooner or later in this arc. Speaking from experience, I can tell you that the squatters you run into throughout Asia really are that nasty to deal with. Show More Summary

Community Spotlight 7/27/2014

Greetings, Anime Vice Community! Convention season is in high gear this month, and I'm sure Tom is being kept busy. This is the week of the 2014 San Diego Comic Con, but he still found the time to post some reviews for JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE, PERSONA 4: THE GOLDEN ANIMATION, DRAMAtical mURDER, and ARGEVOLLEN. Show More Summary

TOKYO GHOUL #1&2 -- Special Review

People have forgotten what horror is. Jump scares, music stings, and well-lit creatures shown in full? That’s not horror -- that’s error. Terror is the sudden, the immediate, and the physical. Horror is in the uncertain, yet inevitable; in the building dread of something you know you are helpless against; in the mind. Show More Summary

ARGEVOLLEN #1 -- Special Review

NARUTO Ch. 685 Review

One of these things is not like the others. Kaguya faces a storm of Naruto clones as she tries to find the original among the copies, and Sakura provides Obito with the power to rescue Sasuke from his dimensional prison. The Good Seriously,...Show More Summary

Does JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE Work as a Horror Story?

I still haven’t figured out what Hol Horse’s name is supposed to be in reference to. My first guest would be some folksy Neil Young album I’m just not familiar with, but that’s probably not it. Do any of you craftier Vicers know the answer to this riddle? Maybe it’s just a consequence of trying to mix horror and action. Show More Summary

BLEACH Ch. 589 Review

You see what we're missing by not having more Yoruichi. Ichigo and the gang prepare to follow after Yhwach and gain a new party member for the journey. Elsewhere in the Soul Society, Ikkaku and Yumichika struggle against Bambietta destructive power as Giselle pulls her undead puppet's strings. Show More Summary

Is DRAGON BALL Dated?

Gosh, I think this episode might’ve strummed on some nostalgic feels for me -- and only because it featured a pinball death trap. As I’ve said, I grew up with DBZ, not DRAGON BALL, so when this show provokes these sorts of sensory memories in me, it’s got more to do with what the show resembles than what the show itself is.

SAMURAI JAM-BAKUMATSU ROCK #1 -- Special Review

We’re sampling the summer season’s selection! Check out our other pilot write-up’s – ALDNOAH ZERO SWORD ART ONLINE II RAIL WARS YAMISHIBAI + AI-MAI-MI GLASSLIP AKAME GA KILL The timing of this is pretty funny. See, I was walking around Little Tokyo with a friend recently. Show More Summary

ONE PIECE Ch. 753 Review

I'm actually curious to know what Dagama said to get this result. Luffy may just be able to make it to the Flower Field and past the Doflamingo Family officers now that the infighting among the tournament participants has come to an end, thanks to the strategic mind of Dagama. Show More Summary

SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL #1 & 2 -- Special Review

When SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL was announced a few months back, I must admit I gasped audibly and my eyes glistened, shoujo-style, in anticipation. I vividly remember getting up early for school one day and discovering the original SAILORShow More Summary

JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE Pays Homage to Stephen King?

Look at that! Anne’s back. And it looks like my hunch about her getting set up to be Jojo #3’s eventual love interest is actually panning out. Though, there’s really no points in guessing on that. Nearly every woman who gets introduced in this show winds up being a Joestar’s girlfriend. Show More Summary

Aldnoah.Zero 03 – How’d Your Nolokeras Fit All Dat… Into Dem Barriers? (Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle)

Summary: Although things look pretty dire, Inaho is super sharp, and immediately spots several weaknesses in Trillram’s Nolokeras.  With that shield that absorbs both kinetic energy, materials, and waves, it is impossible to see from the...

We’re sampling the summer season’s selection! Check out our other pilot write-up’s – ALDNOAH ZERO SWORD ART ONLINE II RAIL WARS YAMISHIBAI + AI-MAI-MI GLASSLIP Call it a didactic streak, but I’ll respond pretty favorably o a show if it delivers what I deem to be a relevant and pointed message.

GLASSLIP #1 -- Special Review

So mysteeeeeerious. A new show by animation studio P.A. Works, you say? The people who brought us the stellar THE ECCENTRIC FAMILY (UCHOTEN KAZOKU) and the heart-warming, tear-jerking NAGI NO ASUKARA (NAGI-ASU)? Why yes, I would like o watch that, please! Thank you for pointing it out! Since this is the third P.A. Show More Summary
