VIDEO: A FUNimation-Approved Live-Action DRAGON BALL Z

It was only a matter of time before we saw a proper live-action version. No, not one of DBZ itself. We've still yet to see that. This is more like a live-action version of those "Balls are Inert!" video poops we see on YouTube... and it's about as entertaining. Show More Summary

Who Do You Hate the Most in JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE?

At the least, I’m sure the translation team is getting their jollies, every single time they have to pick an evocative-by-legally-distinct codename for these villains. ‘Dan of Steel’ is very near delightful in how obfuscating it is.Show More Summary

ONE PIECE Ch. 754 Review

The horrors of Toyland. There seems to be no end to the constant obstacles that keep appearing between Luffy and Doflamingo, and who could have imagined that even a 1,000 foot tall golem would be so outclassed by one man brandishing three swords? The Good It's always interesting to see talented artists imitate drawing poorly. Show More Summary

I Know What You Did Last Morisummer

NARUTO Ch. 686 Review

So, I guess everyone wait your turn and no one attack her. Naruto and Sasuke may finally be reunited, but Kaguya has yet another death trap world to punish these shinobi who are out to spoil her long planned resurrection. The Good This chapter started off a lot better than they had been for a while. Show More Summary

DRAGON BALL's Embarrassing Early Days?

The life of the DRAGON BALL is really starting to look like - - I don’t know - - a soft rock act who spent their younger, wilder years as a punk band. Like, they’ve got this profitable, family-friendly image now, and they’re embarrassed by all the lewd hings they used to spout off on their early records. Show More Summary

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

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
