First Impressions: Captain Earth
by Elliot Gay

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 come as too much of a surprise when it had such a strong team working on it. With names like Yoji Enokido (writer of Revolutionary Girl Utena), Takuya Igarashi (Sailor Moon), and a host of others attached to the project, it was bound to at least be intriguing...even if incomprehensible.

Enter Bones' new project, Captain Earth.

Sporting a host of alumni from the Star Driver project, this new giant robot anime is Bones' latest attempt at striking gold.

Is the first episode any good? Are the robots appropriately robotic? Do things go boom?

The answer and so much more, after the break.

Final Impressions: Kill la Kill
by Elliot Gay

The final episode of Kill la Kill has come and gone, with the story of the lone transfer student seeking revenge for her father's death having come to its conclusion. 

Things exploded, Gainax references were made, people were cut into tiny pieces, and dramatic speeches were given.

The curtain has finally fell on TRIGGER's first TV anime production since its founding, which means it's time to look back on the whole shebang. Did it deliver? Did director Hiroyuki Imaishi make something worth talking about?

Am I extremely sad that I no longer have Kill la Kill to look forward to every Friday? 

None of these answers and more, after the break!
