Blood-C summed up in 60 seconds

You may remember that I wasn't too hot on Blood-C or its sequel, The Last Dark. It really suffers from a listless plot that doesn't do much with its interesting lead character. However, it does have interesting moments, many highlighted in...

Card Captor Sakura production material books on the way

Card Captor Sakura is one of my top ten favorite anime series of all time. It's charming, heart warming, exciting, and unique in many ways. I personally think it's Clamp's best work. AnimeStyle will be publishing three separate production m...

Review: Blood C: The Last Dark

One of my largest criticisms in my review of Blood C was that it had no definitive ending. Yes, there was a resolution involving most of the characters in town, but it was clear that the show was a 12-episode precursor to the movie, The Las...

Blood C receives animation award

While it isn't a perfect show, Blood C is an alright horror show that looks and sounds solid. It seems that other publications agreed, as the 12 episode program was awarded the 2013 Reaper Award for Best Animation. Presented by the horror s...

Review: Blood-C

When I watched Blood C in Summer of 2011, I thought it was a show that had a lot of promise. It started out with the distinct feeling that something wasn't right in an idyllic town that was being pressed upon by nightmarish beasts. Unfortun...

Code Geass: Akito the Exiled episode 2 is looking good

I'm the last person you'd call a fan of either Code Geass TV series. I will however say that I think they're beautifully animated pieces of television that I don't regret watching, even if the actual story and cast did nothing for me. Ente...

Friday Night Fights: Cardcaptor Sakura vs Yu Narukami

*ding, ding, ding* It's over! Zangief may have fought the best of the best, along with wrestling bears as part of his training. But in the end, it all amounts to one thing: Zangief has never punched Izaya. Simon on the other hand, has manag...

Rejoice? Live action xxxHOLiC drama incoming

I'm not on very good terms with Clamp these days. I absolutely adore their early work (Card Captor Sakura, Magical Knight Rayearth), but their recent stuff hasn't done much for me whatsoever. I've heard good things about xxxHOLiC, but I've ...

First chunk of Code Geass: Akito the Exiled streaming

I'll be honest with you guys and gals. Code Geass has never really appealed to me for one reason or another. The first season didn't do much for me and while I enjoyed the pure eye candy on display, I greatly disliked the core cast of chara...

Code Geass hitting the stage in 2012

Blood-C: The Last Dark promises more killin'

If you'll remember, CLAMP and Production I.G.'s schoolgirl slasher series Blood-C didn't exactly end well for pretty much anyone in its cast. While I won't spoil things here (you can check out Pedro's Final Impressions of the series for tha...

Final Impressions: Blood C

To say that Blood C has taken an interesting turn would be a bit of an understatement. Nothing really new or surprising, what with high school girl Saya using her mysterious powers to defend her town from encroaching demons. It started as f...

Japanator (Doesn't) Recommend: Clamp Double Feature

I love how Funimation is supporting Blu-ray by releasing nearly all of their current shows on the shiny, hi-def format. I wish more companies were as ambitious in pursuing Blu-ray, considering a lot of shows that I currently lust over are a...

New Code Geass anime coming, doesn't star clone Lelouches

Not as far as I'm aware, that's for sure. According to 2ch, it's going to be called Code Geass Gaiden: Boukoku no Akito (Akito of the Ruined Nation), and is set several years after the end of the TV series. The whole "world peace"...

$19.99? Angelic Layer is too awesome to cost only $19.99!

One anime that will always stand in my top ten will be Angelic Layer. I can't even really explain why, but I love this anime. Bones adapted it from the Clamp manga, but the details don't matter. Something about it is just magical to me.&nbs...
