Longest gattai sequence ever
I secretly loved Star Driver.
The ridiculously over-the-top posing, flashiness, strange imagery, and the beautiful animation; it all came together to make for an entertaining whirlwind of confusion and glee. That shouldn't co...

It's as if they know how to capture this Otaku's heart
I always find myself hesitant to write about first-person shooters on this site, especially ones developed by western studios. Not because I don't play them, because admittedly I do, but because they simply fail to appeal to...
A marriage of robots & boobs
The robot genre has changed in many ways over the years. For one thing, the stories have become more complicated, incorporating social commentary in an effort to appeal to wider audiences beyond children who are impressed wit...
Watch out for flying mechanical parts.

And it's so very, very awesome
I have a confession to make.
I watched the Patlabor TV anime for the first time this past June. It's one of those classics I'd heard so much about, but never had the time to get around to.
Needless to say, it's a fantast...

More of this, please~
Speaking frankly, I'm not a mecha kid of guy. It's pretty hard to find me watching anything that has to do with mecha outside, say, Macross. Even then, I come for the music and stay for the action. Anyways, what I am is a gu...
