This week, I have the honor of talking about my number one favorite media series. The reason I say it like that is because I originally fell in love with the Bakuman manga as it was being serialized, and it wasn’t till a few weeks ago that I was able to get ahold of the… Read More Throwback Thursdays: Bakuman。
After receiving numerous recommendations over the years, I finally sat down and watched Cowboy Bebop. After finishing the show, I decided it was necessary to review the show as soon as possible. I should also point out Charles is a huge fan of this show (E/N: I am most definitely a huge fan of it!).… Read More Throwback Thursdays: Cowboy Bebop
A month ago, TWWK offered all of the readers on this blog the opportunity to decide what anime you wanted me to review. I am stunned at the result. I never imagined that Natsume Yuujin-Cho would win, especially against Sword Art Online. Well anyway, prepare yourselves as I am about to begin. Natsume Yuujin-Cho (aka… Read More TBT Readers Choice Winner: Natsume Yuujin-Cho
I am very biased in my love for Full Metal Panic! I very strongly relate to one of the main characters, which I will elaborate on later, but for now, know that up front. Full Metal Panic! is a boy meets girl story according to its creator. I tend to think about it as an… Read More Throwback Thursdays: Full Metal Panic!
Code Geass is in my book a classic anime. Not classic in the sense it is old, but classic in the sense that it was popular and at the same time polarized the people watching it. I loved the show. This was the first anime that I was ever hooked on, and it quickly became… Read More Throwback Thursdays: Code Geass
This week I am review Blast of Tempest, also known as Zetsuen no Tempest. Now I really enjoyed this show, but it will not fit everyone’s tastes. It is a fantasy, sci-fi, slice of life, action, and mystery anime, told in Shakespearian style focusing on revenge and magic. The original concept is based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest.… Read More Throwback Thursdays: Blast of Tempest
For all of history, we have wondered at what happens after death. Every culture has some idea of an afterlife. Sometimes it is a glorious place, sometimes it is but a pit in the earth. Angel Beats! takes the concept of an afterlife and makes it the setting. The entire cast of characters are dead.… Read More Angel Beats! and Easter
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann literally means, “Pierce the heavens, Gurren Lagann.” This strange title is used as a common phrase to inspire and build up the main protagonist of the series, Simon. If you haven’t realised by now, I love it when an anime series breaks off the norm and the stereotypical and does something… Read More Throwback Thursdays: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
The Third: The Girl With the Blue Eye originally developed from a light novel series dating back to 1999. The anime was originally released in 2006. The show however does feel a bit older than it really is, like a hybrid of a 1990’s environment and setting with an early 2000’s style. The show bounces… Read More Throwback Thursday: The Third: The Girl With the Blue Eye
Durarara!! is an anime that started airing in 2010. It takes place in a major part of Tokyo called Ikebukuro. To give you an idea about the show’s feel, think of a classical Chinese style epic taking place in a massive modern metropolis. The show focuses on three main characters, but also includes a plethora of minor… Read More Throwback Thursdays: Durarara!!
