reviewed Blassreiter The Complete Series Part 2. January 06, 2010

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.  …

Claymore The Complete Series

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).  …

Shōnen Onmyōji: The Complete Series
Shōnen Onmyōji is a pretty rich franchise and odds are pretty good that you may have encountered it in some variation in the past.  Based on a 25-volume light novel in Japan (by Mitsuru Yūki/ illustrations …

Timeslip The Complete Series
As a big fan of modern science fiction (Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Atlantis and so on), I feel it only fair that I occasionally take a moment (or 11 hours as the case may be) to pay some respect to …
Sometimes I’m convinced that there will never be another period in superhero animation quite as exciting as the early 1990’s.  There were shows literally popping up on nearly every single …

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 …

Heat Guy J is one of those properties I’ve encountered in my travels but always seemed to disregard in favor of titles that were hotter, cheaper, or just better promoted.  The idea of a law …

The Big Windup! Part 2 - Oofuri
Much to the dismay of many critics, I likened The Big Windup to one of the better Shonen (fighting-based) anime series out there only rather than an ongoing tournament, the sport of baseball acts as the …

School Rumble 2nd Semester

The Wallflower
Quick question- exactly what is a wallflower?  Answer: One who does not participate in activity at a social event due to shyness, unpopularity or a combination of the two. The origin of this figurative …

Welcome to the N-H-K

Romeo x Juliet Part 2
