Princess Nine photo

Review: Princess Nine

At the beginning, I loved Princess Nine. It may be a cliche to say "I laughed, I cried!", but the fact is, I really did laugh and cry. The show seemed to be capable of doing something nigh-impossible: present a story unabashedly about girl ...

Review: Space Adventure Cobra Part One

'80s anime had a fondness for cribbing from classic sci-fi. You can see the influences of authors like Issac Asimov and Philip K. Dick and movies like Terminator and Alien in multiple shows from the era. Hell, the influence of Blade Ru...

 
 
Review: Campanella photo

Review: Blessing of the Campanella

In 2010, Funimation simulcasted a fantasy series called Blessing of the Campanella and then, once concluded, it quietly went away. For months no one brought it up again until 2013 when Right Stuf revealed at a summer convention that they h...

Buy anime, make a donation to help kids learn to read

If you're like me, you always intend to give more to charity, but the mystery of where your money really goes holds you back. Some charities are great about spending your money for the benefit of the populations they serve, but sometimes, a...

AX 2013: Right Stuf grabs Princess Nine and more

Oh good, it seems that a Princess Knight riot didn't occur during Right Stuff's Friday panel. Seeing how all of Right Stuf's divisions have announced something, we can assume that no one got injured during the presentation at Anime Expo 201...

 
 
Nozomi panel at AX 2013  photo

YES! Nozomi is having an acquisition panel at Anime Expo

I will admit that I'm am over reacting on my view towards Nozomi's latest announcement, but I'm actually more curious about the scene that's going to appear at the panel. On the good side of things, they're going to talk about some new rele...

Irresponsible Rose Lions joins Nozomi's upcoming releases

Yikes, I didn't think that Nozomi was going to do this to us. Don't they know the dangers that they are inflicting upon society? Do they realize that Rose Lions are the most irresponsible creatures in the entire universe? Oh wait, Nozomi is...

Let Them Eat Romance: Rose of Versailles licensed

Now here's a blast from the past. In a move I definitely did not anticipate (though this probably stems from my cluelessness regarding the genre), Right Stuf has acquired the license to - of all things - Rose of Versailles. In case you...

Bakemonogatari BD US release date and price listed

I know Bakemonogatari can be a pretty divisive series, but for what it's worth I really dug it. Aniplex announced earlier this year that they were planning on releasing the series on BD in America this fall, and if Right Stuf is to be belie...

Japanator Recommends: Boogiepop Phantom

I didn't start off as a fan of horror. When I was a kid, I was terrified of the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street franchises. I hated monsters of just about any kind and stuck to safe and happy things. While my stance on the genre...

Japanator Recommends: Revolutionary Girl Utena Pt. 2 & 3
