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 ...

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 ...

Gonna Be The Twin-Tail: Power Rangers with Pigtails

Advantages: So silly that it's funny. Decent super sentai styled action sequences.

Nisemonogatari - a touch too comedic

Advantages: Still visually enthralling and compelling
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 ...

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 ...
