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 ...

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

Advantages: Cute & funny slice of life entertainment. Cameos from the Soul Eater cast.

Hanayamata - The Best Yosakoi Anime Ever

Advantages: Cute and funny. Nice music. Well animated and drawn.
Disadvantages: Unoriginal storylines. The drama isn't as strong as the comedy.

Fourteen-year-old Naru Sekiya is a timid girl who doesn't stand out much, preferring instead to hide her face behind the cover of a good fairy tale book. Naru has shunned the spotlight for most of her young life, but that all changes when she crosses path ...

Oreimo (Series Two) - Why Marrying Your Sister Never Ends Well

Advantages: Some of the early episodes are funny. Saori's backstory was rather sweet.
Disadvantages: Underwhelming ending. Rage inducing harem second half.

Two months after its UK release, I finally got round to watching the second season of Oreimo. Some readers warned me to avoid MVM Entertainment's disappointing series two collection, but I couldn't resist after thoroughly enjoying the previous instalment. ...
