FATE/STAY NIGHT UNLIMITED BLADE WORKS #10 -- Special Review

As I continue to watch more and more episodes of Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works, I think I’ve begun to sense a pattern emerging. Even numbered episodes seem to showcase fun, exciting, incredible action-sequences, while odd numbered episodes...Show More Summary

FATE/STAY NIGHT UNLIMITED BLADE WORKS #11 -- Special Review

In keeping with my theory that even-numbered episodes of his show are no-holds-barred action extravaganzas while odd-numbered episodes are breather episodes, Unlimited Blade Works episode 11 certainly spared no expense in portraying epic levels of…calm, restfulness and tranquility.

EVANGELION & ATTACK ON TITAN Theme Park Rides?

Considering that, for over a decade, Universal Studios had a 4D attraction based off TERMINATOR 2, it probably shouldn’t be so odd to picture theme park rides based off the likes of ATTACK ON TITAN or RESIDENT EVIL. Still, the gnostic...Show More Summary

RAGE OF BAHAMUT #12 Saves the Series?

All’s well that ends well... maybe? The moment Favaro and Amira share when he finally lets her go really ends the series on an emotional high note. However, it says a lot that this scene is the best part when the titular Rage of Bahamut finally runs wild - - a little nugget of gold sticking out of a whole mess of taffy. Show More Summary

Year 11!

Decided to reset the exclamation point counter, it’s that old.  But here’s to the new writers and another year!

PARASYTE - THE MAXIM #12 Really Needs to Update

This show’s really starting to seem like it’s spinning its wheels. I’m not sure for what, though. Maybe it’s because I just re-watched TERMINATOR at a friend’s place. One hing that really sticks out about that flick, now, is that the danger and hrills are very much defined by the technology of the 80’s. Show More Summary

RAGE OF BAHAMUT Jumps the Shark...?

There’s really only one episode left in this series? PSYCHO-PASS 2 was a half-season, too. As was BLADE & SOUL. Maybe that’s the trade-off for the animation quality? When the first episode dropped, we all asked how they could afford to render at this level on a weekly basis. Show More Summary

Krillin Gets A New Look in the Next DRAGON BALL Z Movie

Seems like "the F is for Resurrection" marketing team has gotten a wee more savvy about parceling the movie's surprises out... Here we are with another "leak" from the forthcoming issue of WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP (by way of ANN) -- and not too long after a previous "leak" revealed the green track suit Gohan's wearing on his off hours. Show More Summary

DRAGON BALL: The Red Ribbon Army Saga -- Does It Hold Up?

This one didn’t play out like I was expecting it to, at all. Call an arc “the Red Ribbon Army saga” and you expect to see Goku fighting waves and waves of footsoldiers and war machines, no? Instead, this is basically a second ournament...Show More Summary

Review: Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis, by all accounts, should have been a completely forgettable and mediocre show having the pretense of being a teaser anime for Cygames and their mobile card game. The source material...

BLEACH Ch. 610 Review

Ichibe has had it with these mothereffin' Vandenreich on this mothereffin' plane (of existence). Ichibe is not one to falter in the face of overwhelming odds. He'll face Yhwach, The Almighty, at the cost of his own life to stop this villain's incursion of the Reiokyu. Show More Summary

HAYATE THE COMBAT BUTLER #2 -- Special Review

This episode begins with supply-side Santa Claus (who apparently was not content to merely insult Hayate in flashbacks and fantasy sequences the way he did in episode 1) returning to harass Hayate in his dreams. He reminds Hayate that,...Show More Summary

AH! MY GODDESS! #2 -- Retro Review

Picking up essentially where Episode 1 left off, “Ah My Goddess” Episode 2 begins with the beautiful and kind-hearted Goddess Belldandy explaining to the chronically unlucky human Keiichi that, due to his pure heart, the heavens have...Show More Summary

ONE PIECE Ch. 771 Review

There is such a thing as being too helpful. Sai faces off with Lao G and his own grandfather to prevent Baby 5 from doing something reckless that they'd both regret. The Good I've never been the slightest bit shy about my irritation with Baby 5's codependency issues. Show More Summary

HAYATE THE COMBAT BUTLER #1 -- Special Review

Hayate the Combat Butler (or “Hayate No Gotoku” as it’s known in the original Japanese) has got to be one of the most bizarre mad-cap off-the-wall anime series I’ve seen in a long time. And yet, despite all its irreverent zaniness (or perhaps because of it) I was surprised to find myself belly-laughing all hroughout the first episode of this series. Show More Summary

Psycho-Pass 2 – 11 What Color? (Final)

Right off the bat, the straightforward resolution to last week’s cliffhanger didn’t have anyone being blown up into bloody bits but it did have Akane, being the badass that she is, taking down Tougane...
