Gonna Be The Twin-Tail: Power Rangers with Pigtails

Advantages: So silly that it's funny. Decent super sentai styled action sequences.
Disadvantages: Expensive for a single cour series. Generic characters. Uninteresting villains.

What is your favourite type of hairstyle? Do you think Afros are awesome? Perhaps you believe that Bob Cuts are the bee's knees? In the world of anime and manga Twin-tails (better known as Pigtails on this side of the pond) reign supreme. It's the coiffur ...

Yona of the Dawn (Part One) - Legend of the Crimson Princess

Advantages: Strong female lead. Well-animated fantasy themed action.
Disadvantages: The Blu Ray pack is expensive. Some of the later episodes get a bit silly.

Yona, the sixteen year old protagonist of Akatsuki no Yona, is the only daughter of Kouka Kingdom's peace loving monarch. Blessed (or should that be cursed) with a head of ginger locks, she lives a pampered life at the palace where she spends her days swo ...

Aldnoah.Zero (Season One) - Another Martian Invasion

Advantages: Smart political sci-fi plot. Has some nice CG effects.
Disadvantages: Ends on a cliffhanger. The lead character lacks charisma.

Transformers, Robotech, Voltron and the often-ridiculed Gobots (they had a spin-off movie featuring Rock Lords who turn into um boulders.) Those are the cartoons I grew up with as a wee lad, which may explain why into adulthood I remain a devout fan of al ...

Expelled from Paradise - In a VR World Hackers are Terrorists

Advantages: Great voice acting. The CGI animation is rather impressive.
Disadvantages: Lacks the depth of other Urobuchi stories. The heroine has a silly surname.

Expelled from Paradise is a sci-fi movie set in the distant future, where the once verdant continents of Earth have eroded into barren wastelands. To escape the hardships of desert life ninety eight percent of the human race uploaded their consciousness o ...

Samurai Flamenco (Part 1) - Beware Umbrella Thieves!

Advantages: The first seven epiosdes will appeal to Kick-Ass fans. Rather funny.
Disadvantages: Episode eleven is too silly for my taste. Artwork dips in quality at times.

Samurai Flamenco is a superhero show, which is rather ironic because much like a costumed vigilante the series could be accused of having dual identities. Comic book fans have often speculated whether the real Bruce Wayne is a billionaire playboy or the s ...
