Anime Review- Red Garden

April 24, 2010

I usually refrain from writing reviews, but I feel this is an underrated anime, which doesn’t get the amount of publicity that it should. Today was my birthday and I happened to receive this DVD collection from one of my friends. It is also been a while since I watched this anime, so it is nice to finally be able to watch it again. As for this review, I’ll try to remember certain aspects of the anime worth mentioning.

Anime Review- Nodame Cantabile

April 23, 2010

A slice of life, romantic comedy at heart…but this series does so much more than what other series in this genre strive to be. An immensely popular series in Japan, this music anime is a must watch for everyone, even those uninterested in this genre or musical animes. Read the rest of this entry ?


Anime Review- Spice and Wolf

April 20, 2010

When I first came across this anime, I didn’t really think that a story set on a traveling merchant and a ‘wolf girl’ would be anywhere near interesting. But after reading comments and reviews of what people had to say about it, I gave it a go. When i started watching, it was true there is a ton of dialog you have to deal with with not much action. But i never really once thought of it as boring throughout the entire season. The two protagonists always seem to have a interesting conversation. Read the rest of this entry ?


Anime Review- Seitokai no Ichizon

April 8, 2010

Parody and comedy are a staple genre in the anime world and sometimes can be hit or miss. This is because to truly understand parody you have enough experience with the things that are being parodied. As a foreigner to Japan and the majority of its culture, a great deal of this goes over my head as it would a foreigner trying to understand some of the humor from my own country. All of that being said some things are universally funny in comedy and that brings us to Seitokai no Ichizon, an anime that forgets to deliver the most important element a comedy must have… actual comedy.

Anime Review: Da Capo

April 1, 2010

Okay, so it’s one of the most popular harem titles in japan, probably only second to KEY’s big hits. It’s even tiring to try to track the amount of side stories and sequels and doujin productions for this huge title.
But surprisingly despite all the hype this series gains, it totally killed all my expectations. Read the rest of this entry ?


Anime Review: Zero no Mono

March 10, 2010


Basically, a guy with no name who attends college is obsessed with sex. He bumps into a preppy girl on the way home and winds up inside her apartment, when — what else? — sexy times commences. Only it’s more kinky sexy times than anything else. And did I mention his snazzy pick up line? Throwing a jar full of semen at her. Nice. Between that and the ending which is all kinds of messed up, it warrants a strange review. Story brings nothing original to the table, but it’s not completely devoid of ideas.

Anime Review- Amaenaide yo!

February 19, 2010

So the best way to describe this anime would be…Buddhism turned extreme (in an erotic way). What happens when you put a monk and a bunch of nuns together in a temple? Performing exorcism all day and night? Not really … performing perverted, ecchi stuff all day and night? O yeah! Amaenaide yo! is an anime that can easily get faithful Buddhists ticked and non believers wonder “what the heck” is Buddhism. While this is only half of the story (yes season2), it does serve its purpose quite well as a building block to the sequel. Read the rest of this entry ?
