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 ...

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 ...

Nisemonogatari - a touch too comedic

Disadvantages: Tends more towards comedy and a bit too drawn out

You said at the end of your review of Bakemonogatari – the second part that is – that based on your experience of the series you would’ve bought this second series of monogatari sight unseen taking it upon good faith that it was just as good. Were you ...

So, I Can't Play H - H for Horny and Horrible

Advantages: Lots of animated boobies, catchy opening/closing theme music.
Disadvantages: Feels like a High School DxD knock off, unfunny jokes, weak story.

So I Can't Play H is a twelve-episode anime based on the light novels penned by Pan Tachibana. I'm surprised that the property isn't an original animated series or at the very least a manga adaptation. Books are after all predominately made up of text. So ...

Flowers of Evil - More Sinister than a Venus Fly Trap

Advantages: Captivating psychological story. Strong performances from the voice cast.
Disadvantages: The rotoscope animation will put some people off. Cliffhanger ending.

I am feeling depressed today, as my image of Japanese schools has been irreparably tarnished. Like many weeaboos I have often fantasised about attending one of Japan's educational institutes and who could blame me? If anime is to be believed, Japanese sch ...
