Have you ever sat down to think, what would my life be if was a dating sim controlled by friends or family? Of course no one has thought something like that at least I hope not. I spent a small time watching the anime titled Date A Live, which at this time has two seasons. The first season is in English, but as for the second I’ve yet to find any word if it’ll be dubbed.
NIS America is at it again and is proud to announce that the highly praised anime Toradora! will be released on July 1st in the US. What makes this news even more awesome is that it will include an English dub. Most of the time the titles published by NIS America are Japanese dub only that feature English subs. As you can see above, that product is the full set you’ll obtain if you happen to...[Read More]
It’s not everyday you find a show as interesting as FLCL. Spelled out it’s “Fooly Cooly”. The original anime series was directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki, and written by Yoji Enokido. It was produced by Hiroki Sato and Nishizawa Masatomo. It’s a very short anime with only 6 episodes lasting 23 minutes each.

In the midst of Pixar and the pulling way from hand drawn animation here in the US, Anime holds a nostalgic place in my heart. Whenever a new Anime comes along with a story I’m really interested in I try to find time to watch it even with my busy schedule. Stories dealing with growing up are one of my favorites. Hanasaku Iroha~Blossoms for Tomorrow centers on a 16 year old girl, Ohana Matsum...[Read More]
Years ago, manga artist/writer Rumiko Takahashi, creator of some of the most popular series on both sides of the Pacific (including the legendary Ranma 1/2), created her most ambitious work. It was the culmination of all her talents for comedy, romance, action and horror, a feudal fairy tale following the story of a girl thrown back in time, teaming with a half-demon boy on a journey to reassemble...[Read More]
One of the things that often happen with popular anime, particularly of the shonen (boys) action variety is that they end up with lots of movies. These are usually not considered canon, and often have a self-contained story that has no bearing on the series’ main plot. The wildly popular Naruto franchise already had 3 movies before becoming Naruto Shippuden, and this is the second movie of t...[Read More]
As some of you may already know, I’m something of a fan of the anime Bleach. And here we have the latest movie for the franchise, Hell Verse. Is it a good entry to the saga, or a dud?
With so much coming out, one of the latest series I’ve finished has been Shakugan no Shana. You’ll be sure to see the Season 2 review and OVA review in the future. Of course later this year will be Season 3 once that has been released. With that said I’m starting with my review of Season 1. This series has a lot to offer and has kept me wanting more. Why? That’s a good ques...[Read More]
One of the great classics of anime among western fans is the sci-fi comedy Tenchi Muyo. This is one of the first anime I ever really got into when I was an early teen. And after decades, the original OVA (Original Video Animation) series is being re-released on Blu-Ray. Does this classic hold up?
