Releases of the Week: Harlock is an amazing role model

Is it me, or is summer turning into the season of classics releases? I think the answer might be "yes" since we have one of Leiji Matsumoto's (Space Battleship Yamato's Creator, Interstella 5555's Character Design) best characters appearing...

Go Nagai is attending Anime Expo '18

As I rejoice over 2018 marking the return of three classic Go Nagai titles, the people at Anime Expo made me excited as they grant him the Guest of Honor status. If anything, this is the perfect follow-up to the new Devilman, Mazi...

Releases of the Week: Kanna steals the spotlight

Oh, boy. It seems like we hit another occasion where the anime titles are slowing down as the manga stuff dominates North America. At least there's a decent amount in the wild. Most importantly, this marks the second release of the Dragon M...

Releases of the Week: Don't underestimate Kenshiro's power

This week is shaping up to be a great time for Fist of the North Star fans, as Discotek releases the movie on Blu-ray. Silly enough, this news reminds me that I still need to check out the anime and/or manga. Since I heard nothing but amazi...

Space Battleship Yamato 2199's sequel lands on Crunchyroll

Whenever anything related to Space Battleship Yamato surfaces, I think back to the days when I caught its Americanized version, Star Blazers, on Toonami's defunct streaming site called Toonami Reactor. Since it has a special place in my hea...

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...

Let's go nuts for Shirobako's new movie

Shirobako is one of those shows that got me invested with the characters and story through its run. This had to do with the way how the team portrayed the cast's struggles in creating an anime production. Thanks to it succeeding in making t...

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’...

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...

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...

FLCL's sequel brings out The Pillows goodness on June 2

Whenever a title finishes its run, there's a good chance that its story is complete. As FLCL's new seasons hit us with a cool trailer, I'm still siding with those who think that they aren't necessary. Aside from the original show havin...

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...
