Noragami and Noragami Aragoto

Noragami and Noragami Aragoto

Ah, Noragami. Let the record show that the supernatural genre is my favorite. I am inherently predisposed to liking a story that fits into spiritual-related fantasy, or one that features unseen worlds. Some of them disappoint me with their pedestrian and uninventive...

Magic User’s Club! (OVA)

Magic User’s Club! (OVA)

Sometimes, it’s nice to re-examine a series that I have covered before. Way back on my old blog, I covered both the Magic User’s Club OVA and TV Series. Of course, this was back in the days when Media Blasters was releasing the title on singles.  Anyway, when given...

Pita-Ten

Pita-Ten

Kotarou is a boy whom you’d probably not pay a second look if you saw him in the streets. He’s quiet, reserved, and still in those innocent elementary school years. His world is also about to get shaken up, thanks to a peculiar new neighbor One day, Misha, a hyper...

Spice and Wolf

Spice and Wolf

The first time I came across Spice and Wolf, its copywriting must’ve rearranged itself to read: “Pretentious drivel to be droned at you by a platinum blonde and some dog chick. Slow episodes sure to delight only furries,” because I put that crap back on the shelf and...

The Irresponsible Captain Tylor

The Irresponsible Captain Tylor

Note: This review will focus primarily on the titular Tylor as a character, and his role within the series. I have to admit that sci-fi is one of my favorite genres in fiction. Whether it’s Star Wars, Doctor Who, or countless sci-fi anime that I have watched over the...

Sound! Euphonium

Sound! Euphonium

A euphonium is a baritone brass instrument, similar to the baritone horn found in most American high school band rooms. It rounds out the bass section of a concert band, acting as a bridge between the bright tenor of the trombone and the bedrock presence of the tuba....

A Town Where You Live

A Town Where You Live

Haruto Kirishima recently went through a few big changes in his life. He moved from the Hiroshima countryside to the big city of Tokyo in hopes of tracking down his long-distance girlfriend, who broke up with him over text. Getting one’s beloved back isn’t as simple...

El Hazard: The Wanderers

El Hazard: The Wanderers

It’s time to get sucked into an alternate world. A realm of magic, adventure, and weekly doses of badly written drama. Welcome to the world of El Hazard: The Wanderers. Hold on tight and remember to pack your soy sauce, because we are diving in head-first. Makoto...

Date A Live II

Date A Live II

So, Date a Live II. It’s not as bad as Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar, but it’s not much better, either. On the surface, Date a Live seems like a far more interesting series to tackle, as its problems are far less systemic. The rest of the show is basically a...

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

Note: This review may contain spoilers, reader discretion is advised. In the 1980s, Mobile Suit Gundam was a hot property. The series saw great success in syndication, as well as a trio of theatrical compilation films. Because of this, it wasn’t a matter of if,...

Sound of the Sky

Sound of the Sky

Do you know what a sleeper is? It’s something that doesn’t seem like it will be amazing, only to slap you in the face with a dolphin named “Oh My God, Where Have You Been My Whole Life?!” Okay, I exaggerated a bit. No one would name a dolphin something that long....

Gakuen Alice

Gakuen Alice

I’m going to start this review with a disclaimer: I don’t normally watch these genres. Magical girls and shoujo generally aren’t in my repertoire of commonly viewed items. That said, I’m always open to new things. When the DVD arrived in the mail, I had flashbacks to...
