Review: Batman Ninja Blu-Ray Set

Although Marvel and DC Superheroes have been part of my life just as long as anime, I never fully looked into comics aside from cartoons adaptations, movies, and video games. My appreciation for Batman came when I first watched The New...

Review: Ponyo 10th Anniversary

I can’t believe that it’s been almost 10 years since Ponyo came out In japan– though I avoided the dub back in 2009 because it was by Disney, not to mention, I was in my “weaboo” phase, where dubs, particular E...

Review: Martian Successor Nadesico Blu-ray Set

Even as an avid anime fan, there’s always going to be a hidden gem that I missed, especially if it came out during the 90’s. Excluding the popular ones like Card Captor Sakura, Dragon Ball, Yu Yu Hakusho, among others, it’...

Impressions: Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction

Being a fan of Inio Asano’s work, such as Oyasumi Punpun, What a Wonderful World, Umibe no Onna no Ko among others, I have had Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction on my “plan to read” for a long time but never really pus...

Impressions: City

It’s hard to believe that it has already been 7 years since Nichijou released. It’s one of the many series that has really helped me cope with stress during my time in school. The characters were silly and funny, and story-wise,...

Review: Sound Of The Sky Blu-Ray Set

I remember when I learned about So Ra No Wo To, or Sound of the Sky, and initially watched it for the moe, and because it looked like another K-On, except in the military, so I started it with the mentality that it was just going to be anot...

Impressions: Otherworldly Izakaya Nobu

Regardless of your culture and background, or your fandom – video games, western media like comics, cartoons, movies, and of course, anime and manga, we can all agree that food is what brings everyone together. Personally, when I look...

Impressions: Kaguya-sama Love is War

After re-reading My Hero Academia and Tokyo Ghoul, preparing for their upcoming (or current anime seasons depending on when this is published), I thought I needed to read something different, so I looked into the recently released first vol...

Review: Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light Remastered

It’s been almost 14 years since the original Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light hit theaters in North America. I still remember that summer where I went to Burger King a lot just for the happy meals toys, too, even though I was a f...

Review: Yuri!!! on Ice Blu-Ray Set

Just like Free!, Yuri on Ice is something I wanted to avoid watching, basically, one reason that it’s mostly fanservice for girls (I love Kuroko’s Basketball and that’s basically Yaoi galore), but mostly because I’m ...

Review: Akiba's Trip: The Animation

I’ve been a fan of the Akiba’s Trip series ever since it debuted on the PSP, especially since it was the “weeb” version of Way of the Samurai, which is by the same developer. While the gameplay isn’t spectacula...

Review: Keijo!!!!!!!! Limited Edition Blu-Ray Set

Looking back at my Top 5 of 2016, perhaps Keijo (stylized as Keijo!!!!!!!!) shouldn’t be in the Top 5, especially after catching up with series released during that time, but it still was a very enjoyable watch. De...

Review: Mazinger Z: INFINITY

So, it has been around 17 years since I watched the original Mazinger Z, so a lot of that has happened in the series is foggy to me, but the movie took 10 years after the original series, and still being familiar with the characters, I...

Review: Mob Psycho 100 Limited Edition Blu-Ray Set

Mob Psycho 100 was in my top 10 series of 2016. While it it didn’t make it on my Top 5 series of 2016 (which it should have now that I have rewatched it) it was definitely a favorite for me during summer time alongside Shokugeki no So...

Review: The Morose Mononokean Blu-ray Set

Anime with Japanese folklore, such as yo-kai, as their concept has always intrigued me. From anime such as Yo-kai Watch to Miyazaki’s famous Spirited Away. I’ve always enjoyed it one way or another. Looking throug...

Review: Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches Blu-Ray Set

Every anime season despite watching between five and six anime, you already know that you’re always missing a hidden gem, in my case that is Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches. It’s been on my watch list for so long, but I just fo...

Review: Digimon Adventure tri: Loss

It was really exciting news for me when I found out that the last three Digimon Adventure tri movies were going to hit theaters. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, I couldn’t watch the first movie in theater, so it made me ...

Review: Napping Princess: The Story of the Unknown Me

Impressions: Gun Gale Online Manga Vol. 1

Most of us can agree that Sword Art Online isn’t the best series out there, especially with protagonists like Kirito and Asuna, but it’s spin-off series, Gun Gale Online, is enjoyable. Personally, I like the main character, Kare...

Impressions: Splatoon Manga Vol. 1

Review: Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You!
