Mobile Suit Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory
   No sense beating around the proverbial bush on this one: I adore the Gundam franchise. I liked it immediately and made my way through 0079, Zeta, Wing, Seed and even the G-Gundams before …

FLAG
   They are few and far between to be sure, but once in a great while an anime series comes along that combines excellent storytelling with just enough fantastical technology to make animation …

Vexille - Movie
   Well I suppose it’s only right to open this review with a disclaimer.  Given my recent tear through the genre of (domestic) computer animated feature films, I suppose it’s …

   When you think of robot-based computer generated features, Pixar’s Wall-E and Blue Sky’s Robots are probably the first two to come to mind.  However, amidst the tidal waves …

Well, I suppose the age-old lesson of never judging a book based on its cover applies to anime as well.  In this case, my advice would be not to judge the show based on its cover, previews, or video …

RIN Daughters of Mnemosyne
I like to consider myself an anime connoisseur and shy away from paying too much attention to specific genres (despite a penchant for mecha) figuring there’s almost something enduring in anime regardless …

Dragonaut The Resonance Part 02
I came away from the first installment of Dragonaut with very mixed feelings.  The visuals were pretty impressive, a few of the ideas interesting (the asteroid that’s in fact a mobile battle …

The first release of Blassreiter took me by surprise.  Here was an anime property that balanced biblical influence with mecha, nano technology with medieval-style culture and motorcycles with zombies.  …

Case Closed: Countdown to Heaven
Countdown to Heaven represents my third Case Closed feature film in as many nights.  What’s this mean besides I really need to get out more?  It means that the Case Closed is one of few …

Well I better clear the air right from the get-go; this review isn’t going to be very positive.  And don’t for a minute think that it’s due to the property’s lack of potential.  …

El Cazador de la Bruja, Volume 2
El Cazador De La Bruja has the most-unique distinction of having both volumes release to the North American market on the same day.  No need to wait around to conclude the 26-episode tale that comes …

Planetes: Complete Collection

Wolf and Spice The Complete First Season
Spice and Wolf is one of those rare anime properties that could only have been made possible by global cooperation. The look, the feel, the animation-style, and the mythological elements are all of Asian …

Gunslinger Girl IL Teatrino: OVA
Gunslinger Girl is one of those anime properties that can easily be mistaken as being a gimmicky show.  You know the type; the premise itself is so eccentric (in this case cybernetic-children assassins) …

Sgt. Frog: Season One, Part 2
I’ll fess up- the first volume of Sgt. Frog took me my surprise and that’s saying a lot considering I pride myself on being quite jaded.  Here was a show that took some adorable Japanese …

Evangelion: 1.01 You Are (Not) Alone
Love or hate the Giant Robot genre of anime, there is no denying the resounding influence the Evangelion franchise has had on the industry since its introduction back in 1997.  I’m a self-admitted …

Bamboo Blade Part 1
Bamboo Blade Part 1 is a shining example of east meets west culture in the anime medium.  The concepts, the menus, the atmospheres and even the humor are undeniably Japanese and yet thanks to FUNimation, …

Comic Party Revolution: The Complete Series
I’ve become a bit renown (for better or worse) for picking up established anime franchises late then backtracking to the beginning in effort to make sense out of the ending (which I started with).  …

The Story of Saiunkoku
The more anime a person takes in, the clearer it becomes that lumping all Japanese animation into a single classification is an absolutely ridiculous notion.  A majority of the anime I find myself …

One Piece Season Two Third Voyage
As is the case with each and every one of my One Piece reviews, I have to open by confessing a certain unwavering approval-factor of this series right off the bat. For a property with the word "shonen" …

Overman King Gainer
On paper, Overman King Gainer looks a lot like a legitimate alternative to the massive Gundam franchise. Beginning with the fact that it's a Sunrise/ Bandai collaboration then followed by the fact that …

Mobile Fighter G-Gundam
Let's face it; on the whole, Mobile-Fighter G Gundam is typically considered by fans to be the black sheep of the Gundam franchise. I knew this going into the 49-episode DVD collection, which is spaced …
