New Series Review: Higashi no Eden

June 29, 2009

higashi-no-eden

The series’ premise is something like this: a young Japanese woman named Saki Morimi is visiting Washington D.C. as part of her graduation trip. There she gets into trouble as a mysterious Japanese man, who introduces himself as Akira Takizawa, helps her through it. The man appears to have no memory and is completely naked, carrying only a gun and a cell phone charged with 8.2 billion Yen in digital money. The cell phone has the phrase, “Noblesse Oblige”  printed on it. While they are coming back to Japan, they learn that a new missile attack has taken place in their country.

Manga Review: High School Debut

June 27, 2009

A typical shojo plot — young woman desperate to get a boyfriend as she starts high school — is made highly entertaining through dynamic characters and art.

Haruna is used to working hard to get what she wants. She’s a softball player (and girls’ manga fan) who thinks that slavishly following teen magazines for fashion and behavior suggestions will gain her a guy. She doesn’t understand what works specifically for her body type and personality, though, so she’s been a failure so far… and an amusingly scary one.

Evangelion 1.11: You Are (Not) Alone

June 14, 2009

Seeing as I afforded plenty of time and space to voice my thoughts on Evangelion 1.01, I’m not going to spend too much time dissecting the Blu-Ray release of Evangelion 1.11 – You Are (Not) Alone for obvious reasons, namely that basically all of my points made on that occasion still stand with this release.

Kurokami: The Animation Episode 19

June 14, 2009

The end of the last episode of Kurokami managed to land us with the mother of all surprise cliff-hangers, introducing Akane as the contractee of Reishin. Only one thing was ever going to follow on from this devlopment, and that was an episode of kick-ass action… and whaddya know, that’s exactly what we get here.

Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo Episode 23

June 11, 2009

With Akiha and company able to make it back to Leopard safely, Benkei onside to help with the fight against nerval and Xanthippe at least temporarily on the retreat, all is looking well for the forthcoming struggle as this episode begins.
However, there is still much work to do – Benkei’s hyperjump will doubtlessly have alerted Nerval as to the location of Leopard, who is himself still incomplete and in need of further parts, while Akiha remains in a state somewhere between denial and distress at the demise of Imo. Leopard’s uncaring attitude towards the “boiled potato” hardly helps matters, although such emotions have to take a back seat once Xanthippe returns, sporting Existence and all, in an attempt to recapture Akiha before dealing with Leopard.
