Anime Review: Record of Lodoss War

I have fond memories of this anime. Not only was it one of the first that I watched as a kid, but the first time I watched it was during my first overnight not-sleeping sleepover. By which, I mean that … Continue reading

Anime Review: Rising of the Shield Hero

The first thing I heard about Rising of the Shield Hero was the controversy surrounding the events of the first episode. The previous season had sparked outrage with the graphic depiction of all things horrible in Goblin Slayer, and now this season … Continue reading

Anime Review: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

The single biggest strike against this anime, in my opinion, is how doesn’t quite stand entirely on its own. It was made quite awhile after its predecessor, and, though it is truer to the source material, it seems to assume that … Continue reading

Anime Review: Fullmetal Alchemist

This one has a little history to consider. Not only is it a classic, it’s a classic that demanded to be remade into another classic, similar to each other, but very distinct. See, they based the first anime on the … Continue reading

Anime Review: Kids on the Slope

I know, at least peripherally, that Jazz has had something of bad reputation, somewhat well-earned. It held a long presence in seedy nightclubs and other unsavory, shadowy corners. Yet, much the same can be said of many forms of entertainment. … Continue reading

Anime Review: The Vision of Escaflowne

It’s part isekai, part fantasy adventure, part medieval mecha, part love story, and it is not entirely appropriate for little children, no matter how valiantly the censors try. 😉 My first experience with The Vision of EscaFlowne, which shall hereafter just be called Escaflowne, … Continue reading
