Soul Eater NOT - Not the prequel Soul Eater fans were expecting

Advantages: Cute & funny slice of life entertainment. Cameos from the Soul Eater cast.
Disadvantages: The shift from action to sweet comedy may annoy fans of the original.

...What an aptly titled anime. This series is just like the original Soul Eater... Not! That's what Soul Eater fans would exclaim because, aside from the supernatural school setting, this series feels like a radically different show. Or so I am told, as I ha ...

Akame Ga Kill (Collection 2) - So Much Death

Advantages: Non-stop Shonen action. Funny at times.
Disadvantages: Anime original ending may irk fans of the manga. Way too many deaths.

Brexit, countless celebrity deaths and No Man's Sky failing to live up to the hype - by all accounts 2016 has been a rather depressing year. In case those aforementioned news stories haven't soured your mood enough, worry not because Animatsu Entertainmen ...

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 ...

Michiko and Hachin Part 2 - still fun, dark and vibrant

Advantages: Builds on the first half of the series; tone and mood and music and visuals nailed down
Disadvantages: Nada

So despite the delay in writing the review of the first 11 episodes here you are, lickety-split, onto the final 11 episodes I know, sudden efficiency shocker! That should do a poor newspaper headline. Must admit I was looking forward to the final ...

Bladedance of the Elementalers: Cute girls raise Kamito's spirit

Advantages: Amusing harem comedy, some cool fantasy themed action.
Disadvantages: Lacking in original ideas, TNK have made better anime shows.

...Imagine a world where only females are allowed to play Pokémon. That pretty much sums up what Blade Dance of the Elementalers is. Borrowing ideas from Game Freak's hottest property (and countless harem shows to boot) this series takes place in a kingdom w ...
