GURREN LAGANN... the Stage Play?!?!

The most amusing detail in all this is the theater company promising that "the play will present new material that 'wasn't able to be presented' in the original television anime series." That has to translate to "longer dialogue scenes," because I don't see how they'll be able to present most of any actual material from the show. Show More Summary

NARUTO Ch. 696 Review

You know it must be true, because he said it. Naruto may be looking for a fair fight in this grand rematch, but Sasuke only wants his friend's life. The Good Don't ruin this with words. You know, when this chapter focuses on the action and I sort of ignore what they're saying, this all isn't so bad. Show More Summary

IS ANIME-INSPIRED CLOTHING ON THE RISE?

It seems that Nike is teaming up with mangaka Takehiko Inoue to bring us some sweet new swag based on his mega-hit manga SLAM DUNK.

PSYCHO-PASS 2 #2 -- Watch & Learn

We loved to make fun of anime characters having crazy hair, but between this and ATTACK ON TITAN, I’ve come to see the very pragmatic purpose of shocked-up feathering, and neon pink dye-jobs. If this were live-action, there’d be any number...Show More Summary

ONE PIECE Ch. 764 Review

Rocinante's secrets are brought to light, and what follows is quest to save the young Trafalgar's life and soul from becoming just like his brother, Doflamingo. The Good But what does the D stand for? The chapter is full of classic personality and plot. Show More Summary

So... What Ripped Off DRAGON BALL?

Part of the fun of revisiting these classic series lies in me getting a better sense of the context they were created in. A lot of times, you’ll feel like a certain show is old, and it’s simply because you grew up with it. You’ll watch...Show More Summary

Kimiuso 02 – Concert A

Summary: Kousei ends up getting dragged into Kaori’s competition and while he does have his doubts about going, she moves at her own pace so fast that he doesn’t even get a chance to...

ONE PIECE #666 -- Special Review

You know, I’m not going to fault a show for… reaching like this when it has to put a new episode out every week. That’s just the nature of the beast, and the reason why TV shows are broken up into ‘seasons’ in the first place. To be good, staffs can only put episodes out weekly for a season or two a year, at most. Show More Summary

NARUTO Ch. 695 Review

This is the battle to finally end their life-long rivalry, but one of them isn't taking it as seriously as he should. The Good The story may have lost me, but this chapter at least delivers some really cool visuals in this action. The battle may feel like a repeat, but at least the scale of these giant energy creatures gives them some added spice. Show More Summary

ONE PIECE #665 – Watch & Learn

Since it’s always fun to compare/contrast major shonen, I’ve got to reiterate my amusement over Oda’s most likely source of inspiration here. Toriyama watches SUPERMAN II and gets the idea for the Saiyans. Araki catches CHILD’S PLAY, VIDEODROME and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST. Show More Summary

PARASYTE -THE MAXIM- #1 -- Special Review

When I first heard about PARASYTE -THE MAXIM-, I honestly thought there was some mistake. You see, they were making a live action movie based on the exact same 90s manga property so they couldn’t also be making an anime, I reasoned incorrectly, and besides – that trailer for the movie didn’t even look hat good.
