Tokyo Magnitude has Left Me in Despair!

Since this series hasn’t gotten too much attention this season I thought I would give my impressions on it before fall season starts.
The series focuses on a bratty middle school girl who hates everyone and her cute innocent little brother. She if forced to be his guardian while he goes to a robot convention. Out of no where there is a huge earthquake that shatters glass and send people into a panic. The girl runs back into the burning toppling building to save her brother, but if not for an …

Episodes: 74
Genres: Mystery, Psychological, Horror
Aired: Apr 7, 2004 to Sep 28, 2005
Producer: Madhouse
I’m not particularly sure what brought me to this series. For some reason I believe it had to do with a severe misunderstanding that arose when I was looking for the series Darker than Black. It ended up being a stroke of luck though, because this series was truly amazing.
The only other series I can compare this to is Death Note. Both have a very real feeling. Both their animation and tone are similar, although Monster …

Busou Renkin

Busou Renkin
Episodes: 26
Genres: Shounen, Supernatural, Action
Aired: Oct 5, 2006 to Mar 29, 2007
Producer: Geneon
Originally someone recommended that I watch this series when they discovered that I’m a huge fan of Rurouni Kenshin. Busou Renkin was made by the same author. In the last three years since its been recommended I’ve lost it once when my external hardrive died, and another time when my computer required to be restored. I decided I needed to finally sit down and watch this series before something else catastrophic happened.
The basic plot is …

Sengoku Basara: Micro-Impressions

Since this weekend was slow for anime news, here is my quick impression of one of last season’s most popular series. This isn’t a review though; since a second season is coming eventually… Though if this was a review I’d say this series is OK xP

Just a note; the only reason I ended up watching this series was a post M made a while back xD

+ They have horses that defy the laws of Gravity
+ Said horses also have Motorcycle attachments
+ The Main characters aren’t samurai… they’re …

Episodes: 12
Genres: Horror, Fantasy, Mystery, Psychological
Aired: Jul 13, 2007 to Sep 28, 2007
Producer: Toei Animation
What initially enticed me to watch this series was the amazing animation style. The vibrant colors and Japanese style art work give this series alot of charisma. I had also heard alot of people compare this series to Mushishi, a beautiful series about supernatural spirit beings called “Mushi” and how they interact with mankind and nature. I personally felt it bore much more resemblance to Requiem from the Darkness, though not nearly as disturbing. …

For years now I have been hearing about the J-drama Hana Yori Dango, but not being a big J-drama fan I decided to check out the anime instead.
Story: The series revolves around a common high school girl named Tsukushi Makino who just wants to blend into the crowd and have a peaceful high school life. But she feels somewhat out of place Eitoku High School, an elite institution of the richest and …

Producer: Madhouse Studios
I had been told a few times over the last few years that I should watch the series BECK.  Now that I’ve finally given it a chance realize why I had gotten so many recommendations for it. The story is really very heart touching.
Story: The story centers around a 14 year old boy named Tanaka Yukio (Or Koyuki). He is one of the most pitiful sad middle school boys you’ve ever seen. He …

Pick-up Voice May 2009 Vol.17

So I decided to review Pick-up Voice this time(okay more like post pictures of this magazine). So if you’re not into seiyuus, don’t bother clicking the read more button. Lol.

I never really bothered bout seiyuu magazines or whatever, not until last year when I started going crazy over Nana Mizuki and finding out that she’s on magazine covers, that I just had to purchase the magazines! Seiyuu magazines tend to be more expensive, compared to anime magazines. T_T

She’s the reason why I even bought the magazine. Lol.

White Album anyone?

Aya Hirano …

Newtype November 2008

Newtype November 2008 features Setsuna and Tieria from Gundam 00 S2 in their sexy Power Rangers suit! Woots! Magazine was at a special price of 590 yen. And it doesn’t have a lot of content – no wonder we have such a special price. Magazine was ordered from Amazon JP with my other loots too!

I actually gave up buying Newtype a long time ago, would only purchase it if I have something worth inside(freebie? or other stuffies) Other than that I stuck to Megami but I also gave up buying …
