Annotated Anime: Tiger Mask W episodes 20-22

We are back as Tiger Mask W rolls on. The second season has been all over the place and doesn't seem to have much direction. Even though the plot advances in baby steps, we still get some storyline development. Naoto and Ruriko have an awkw...

Annotated Anime: Tiger Mask W episodes 17-19

Tiger Mask W seems to have an ongoing struggle with itself. It seems to keep coming off the rails more times than the mine cart in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. It sometimes looks like the animators are entertaining themselves with ...

Review: Kaiju Girls

When it comes to tokusatsu franchises branching out into other mediums, I’m always open for these types of ideas since they can pull off things that could be hard to pull off in a live-action series. In this case, Tsuburaya, the compa...

First Impressions: March comes in like a lion episodes 1-3

It's been almost a decade since the first time I watched the anime adaptation of Chika Umino's Honey and Clover. I was hooked right from the first episode; from its beautiful art and animation to the memorable characters, it was a lot of fu...

Final Impressions: Thunderbolt Fantasy

It’s hard to believe that one of the best shows of the summer was a series that featured puppets involved in cool action sequences. Honestly, Thunderbolt Fantasy’s biggest treat was the way how Urobuchi, Pili International Multi...

 
 
 
Orange Review photo

Review: Orange

I was very excited for Orange, an anime adaptation of the manga, since it did incredibly well as a live-action film and there was generally a positive buzz surrounding this series. Did it meet my expectations? I enjoyed it and while it was ...

Annotated Puppetry: Thunderbolt Fantasy episodes 7-12

It was only a matter of time until Urobuchi would slice Thunderbolt Fantasy with his special knives. While it took a while for his blade to pierce through the show’s main story, the effect is still worthy of his usual marks that ...

Holy Macaroni: Crunchyroll and FUNimation join forces

Remember that time when Crunchyroll revealed that they were entering the home release market? Well, it turns out that this was one of their plans with their new relationship with FUNimation to bring more anime to the masses. Not only that, ...

First Impressions: Thunderbolt Fantasy

Ever since Urobuchi was involved with Kamen Rider Gaim, my desire to see him tackle other types of mediums outside of his usual things went up since it would be great to see how his writing style would cut up those stories. Since the Butche...

Final Impressions: Space Patrol Luluco

Not many shows have the guts to end during the beginning of a new season. One possible reason is that it would confuse the masses if the title were to end after making a comeback. Despite this move being very risky, this is what allowed Lul...

Aw, snap: Crunchyroll enters the dub and home release field

If there's one unexpected piece of news to come out of Anime Expo '16, it's that Crunchyroll revealed that they're planning to release anime on Blu-ray and DVD with English dubs. The interesting thing about this announcement is that they're...

Annotated Anime: Space Patrol Luluco episode 12

For a second, I thought that Luluco’s fourth season was going to be the end the series. Not that I’m against there being a new season, as there are still many things that the show has yet to resolved. If anything, this continues...

 
 
Space Patrol Luluco photo

Annotated Anime: Space Patrol Luluco episodes 5-11

You got to hand it to shows that outdo themselves to the point where they can convert any doubtful viewer into a fan. In this case, my concern for Luluco’s episode length was wiped out of my system as Imaishi and the Studio TRIGG...

First Impressions: Space Patrol Luluco

Whenever a show presents itself as a short, it’s important for the staff to establish a beginning, middle and end in the piece. If it’s a comedy, then the jokes have to be properly established so that the viewers are laughing th...

 
 
Fafner: Exodus photo

Review: Fafner: Exodus

There’s something wonderful about seeing an older title receive a sequel after a very long time. It shows that the team was pushing hard to continue the story they set in place, and it lets the viewers see the program evolve further. ...

Annotated Anime: Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu episodes 4-6

The last time we checked in on Shouwa Rakugo, it was shaping up to be one of the best (or at least, most grown-up) anime series to air in years. Anime fans looking for more mature, grounded plotting and complex character work were surprised...

Over Ray Storm: Ultraman Nexus finally lands on Crunchyroll

Review: Gatchaman Crowds Insight

Whenever an old property gets reinvented, many folks tend to be concerned over the changes that the title goes through. In some cases, it can be a bad thing; however, a new take on a classic could act as a great way to appeal to both v...

Simulcast GET: Crunchyroll nabs Ultraman X

Well, folks; I think it's safe to say that 2015 is a great year to be a tokusatsu fan. Last week, Shout! Factory announced Dairanger's North American DVD release, and Crunchyroll has now revealed that they're simulcasting Ultraman X. In cas...

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episodes 38-44

Well, it's been weeks since we last checked in with the Stardust Crusaders, a group name, which, come to think of it, doesn't make all that much sense in the grand scheme of things. I mean, sure there's a "Star" in "Star Platinum", and...
