Critic’s Report: Asatte no Houkou

February 17, 2010

This anime is awarded:

Karada is a young girl who hates being treated like a child and who wishes to be grown up. Shoko is an aloof, unhappy young woman who has just returned from overseas. When they meet by coincidence one night at a local shrine where they both like to make wishes, they exchange ages.  Ive never seen an anime where people exchange bodies, minds or anything. So, seeing something like this was a new deal for me. However, the plot is so much different than just switches. It may move really slow at times, but the character development and story is amazing. The story focuses more on Hiro and Shouko’s relationship, and the drama that Harada is put through after just being 12 years old. I even cried all the way through one of the episodes. (more…)


Critic’s Report: Aquarian Age

February 14, 2010

This anime is awarded:

Personally, I found Aquarian Age to be extremely boring and confusing, although the ‘boring’ part can be accredited almost entirely to the ‘confusing’. There’s way too much going on in the background to make a cohesive story line. The descriptions I’d read of the anime always made it sound like this epic, earth shattering story, when really not much happens in the end. If they’d taken out all the weird supernatural aspects, I think you’d end up with a pretty average romance/drama anime. And to top it off, they never even fully explain WHY there’s a bunch of weirdos with super powers going around, nor is the main character all that disturbed by this revelation. (more…)

Critic’s Report: Aoi Bunkagaku Series

February 11, 2010

This anime is awarded:

One thing I have learned after finishing this series, that the world and its society is a one cruel place full with violence, madness, and betrayal, or in the other hand, overpowered by those with the authority. (more…)

Critic’s Report: Angel Heart

February 7, 2010

This anime is awarded:

Note* This series is a spin-off from another show called City Hunter, and uses many of it’s characters. All I did before watching this series is read the synopsis for City Hunter, and I’ve had no problems following the story. It still may be preferable to watch City Hunter first though.

Angel Heart starts by following professional assassin (trained from a child), Glass Heart, as she attempts to escape from her life of killing, by ending her own. But after a heart transplant, and a couple of years sleep, she’s good as new. The new heart brings it’s owner’s spirit with it, and refuses to let Glass Heart die, and so, Glass Heart escapes, to try and find out about the person the heart belonged to. (more…)

Critic’s Report: Akage no Anne

January 27, 2010

This anime is awarded:

The “World Masterpiece Theater” version of “Anne of Green Gables” turns the book into a comprehensive fifty-episode series, absolutely the best adaptation ever made. Anne Shirley is a red-headed orphan girl who talks too much, has a big imagination, and gets herself into all sorts of trouble. When a mistake places her in the care of elderly siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert at Green Gables in the the town of Avonlea, she inspires a lot of headaches, but also becomes a vital piece of their family.

Critic’s Report: Aishiteruze Baby

January 22, 2010

This anime is awarded:I recommend this anime for everyone who wants to watch something touching. Not really a romance, its more of a slice of life anime that should be able to find itself on everybody’s list. Its an anime without grand events or drastic plot turns, its just goodness that keeps on going. (more…)

Critic’s Report: Ai yori Aoshi

January 19, 2010

This anime is awarded:Why do I rate this anime so highly? Why do I give a full 10/10  in nearly every category? Well, it’s simple. It’s an awesome show! In my own personal taste, in what I liked to see in an anime, this was what hit the spot. I’ll review this as I have a few others, by category then by my overall take on it. (more…)

Critic’s Report: Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai

October 27, 2009


This Anime is Awarded:


Imagine that a pre-teen comes home from vacation to find out that his life collection of boyish and geeky paraphernalia has been lost in the ruins of the place he once called his home. Consider too while he’s dealing with that, his best friend tells him, rather nonchalantly, that she will be leaving Osaka to live in Hokkaido. To top off a rather taxing day, he witnesses an event that would cause his world and his best friend’s world to be smashed into a thousand pieces. Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai has a wonderful storyline but creates too much non-realistic appeal. It however is funny and quite enjoyable to many people. This is why Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai has received a 2/5 Star or an “Ok” rating.
