You may remember that I wasn't too hot on Blood-C or its sequel, The Last Dark. It really suffers from a listless plot that doesn't do much with its interesting lead character. However, it does have interesting moments, many...
Card Captor Sakura is one of my top ten favorite anime series of all time. It's charming, heart warming, exciting, and unique in many ways. I personally think it's Clamp's best work. AnimeStyle will be publishing three separa...
One of my largest criticisms in my review of Blood C was that it had no definitive ending. Yes, there was a resolution involving most of the characters in town, but it was clear that the show was a 12-episode precursor to the...
While it isn't a perfect show, Blood C is an alright horror show that looks and sounds solid. It seems that other publications agreed, as the 12 episode program was awarded the 2013 Reaper Award for Best Animation. Presented ...


When I watched Blood C in Summer of 2011, I thought it was a show that had a lot of promise. It started out with the distinct feeling that something wasn't right in an idyllic town that was being pressed upon by nightmarish b...
Thanks to WOWOW we are getting the first five minutes of the new live action adaptation of CLAMP's manga and anime xxxHOLIC. So far I am not really impressed with it. This is coming from someone that has not read the manga n...

Let's literally kick things off with our first themed Daily Dose of 2013! The week, your favorite Japanator editors let you know which famous anime battles get their adrenaline going, fists clenched, and showcase what we all...
*ding, ding, ding* It's over! Zangief may have fought the best of the best, along with wrestling bears as part of his training. But in the end, it all amounts to one thing: Zangief has never punched Izaya. Simon on the other ...
I'm not on very good terms with Clamp these days. I absolutely adore their early work (Card Captor Sakura, Magical Knight Rayearth), but their recent stuff hasn't done much for me whatsoever. I've heard good things about xxxH...
I'll be honest with you guys and gals. Code Geass has never really appealed to me for one reason or another. The first season didn't do much for me and while I enjoyed the pure eye candy on display, I greatly disliked the cor...
There's more Blood coming up, with Blood-C: The Last Dark, a movie follow-up to last year's Blood-C anime series. Production I.G. is teaming up with CLAMP again to continue the story, since it ended rather poorly for the char...
