Any “Top Anime” List without Detroit Metal City can go to Hell

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

A lot of bloggers have recently posted their Top N Anime of the Decade lists. I’ve never cared to write these kinds of trendy posts (though I’m more than happy to criticize them). Even if I did get in on the posts, the vast majority of my readers wouldn’t care that it was part of […]

Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z-Hen: A Second Opinion

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

I highly recommend that your first opinion be Snark’s, but if you want to be a bitch, you could read pretty much any other Shin Mazinger Z review on the internet, as they’re basically all the same.

All the slow-moving drama would pay off tenfold if that goody two-shoes lesbian kid were to transform into a rancorous and psychotic distortion […]

An Unbiased Review of God Hand

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Five things that sucked: 1. Voice Acting Much of the dialogue was kind of clumsy, and this is coming from a guy who’s relatively accepting of crappy voice acting. Bear in mind, I’m not talking about the voices that are supposed to sound ridiculous. 2. The Demon Forms of Elvis, Shannon, and Belze All true […]
