No More Heroes was the reason why I finally caved in and bought a Wii once upon a time ago. The story of Travis Touchdown and his mission to become the #1 assassin had me with its killer narrative, badass
The Waiting Room is something in a hospital where you sit around while a loved one gets some kind of surgery. It also turns out to be the place where you sit around while Electronic Arts gets its act together.
Gungrave was, in retrospect, an okay game series. With character designs by Trigun mastermind Yasuhiro Nightow and mechs created by You're Under Arrest writer Kōsuke Fujishima, the first two titles were described by many as "great to look at, so-so
The titans are still attacking! Well, not as much as they did in previous seasons. I would not have guessed that Attack on Titan would be entertaining without the titans as the villains. There is some titan action, though. Oh boy, is there titan action- and Eren sounding like way more of a wuss than he was in season 1. Snap out of it, man!
Yeah! Witness the return of space's weirdest mecha pilot. I know that not a lot of the anifandom watch short anime, but Space Battleship Tiramisu is definitely a worthwhile comedy. The world needs a mecha show that's...not actually about mecha.
There are many ways in which one can be bizarre, and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure proves that, season after season. For JoJo's fifth series, Golden Wind, JoJo is bizarrely erotic. Sure, there were a lot of shirtless, well muscled men in previous seasons, but this season is not shy about having two young men getting real real close with one another. Combine that with the typical JoJo's poses, and Golden Wind stands out from its predecessors, for sure.
Banana Fish wraps up its bloody gangster mystery this season. Shows like Banana Fish make the ridiculous effort it takes to find new anime on Amazon worth it. I have to admit that the animation seems to have taken a big dive in the episodes I have seen up to this point, but that will not get in the way of me getting to the end of the series.
How the hell can I explain Golden Kamuy? For one thing, I can say that JoJo's is not the only bizarre show I am watching. The show started out so simply: find the tattoos and you find the gold. What that sprawled out into is a lot of dick jokes and weird characters. It's not a supernatural show, but it's not really historical fiction, either. It's a surreal series that you have to explain in detail before you can get someone to watch it.
Anime comedies frequently give us new angles for relationships. As the title suggests, there is a bunny girl, or, rather, a girl dressed in a sexy bunny outfit. She has a unique condition- puberty syndrome. It makes her appear invisible to everyone, and people who used to remember her have forgotten her completely. How did this happen? How can it be cured? A boy named Sakuta could be the key to changing everything. I've picked up Bunny Girl Senpai because the premise is a little strange and I think the interplay between the main characters sounds different than most banter you hear in shows of this genre.
I guess we've run out of ways to give people superpowers. A radioactive spider makes no scientific sense, but at least it was extraordinary. Chewing on cinnamon or leaves, like the girls of Release the Spyce do, is incredibly tame, especially for anime. The Spyce girls (you had a feeling, deep down, that I was going to do that) eat basic spices that give them incredible abilities for a short period of time. We see this through the eyes of Momo Minamoto, a girl who happens to discover a group of young female spies chopping up evil robots. She then becomes one of them, but not before she learns the ways of the spy.
NinJaSistah's mind has been inundated with thoughts about her high school days. Those were the days when she lived for fighting games.
I'm a kid of the nineties, where grunge rock, ska and gangsta rap were all the craze, and filmmakers like Richard Linklater and Kevin Smith spoke to their audiences on the same level. Video games were slowly becoming an art
Humans entering spirit worlds isn't a new thing in manga or anime; rather, these stories have been told for centuries via folklore and various ghost stories. Adding something new to these stories is a lot easier said than done, as
Addictions come and addictions go. And that is what has happened to NinJaSistah over the years. There was a time, not so long ago, that we would have to physically limit the time she spent on the show talking about
Broly's original trilogy in Dragon Ball's film lore was, to put it mildly, uninspired. While it had its fair share of laughs and action, it wasn't up to par with some of the more iconic Dragon Ball films like Tree
Has it been a year already? It seems that we got tired of 2018 about three months in, and the rest was just an endurance race. But now we're here in 2019 and, like every year before it, it seems nothing's changed.
