Ookiku Furikabutte: Natsu no Taikai Hen Review

The original Oofuri was a big hit with me, despite the fact that I generally have an aversion to sports stories.  While Touch, an Adachi series, involved baseball, Oofuri was the first series I watched that was unashamedly centered entirely on baseball.. Read more

Kodomo no Omocha Review (Kodocha)

Kodomo no Omocha, commonly called Kodocha, isn't the most widely known series, but is generally well-liked by those who've seen it - in fact, I don't recall ever reading a bad review of it.  I initially decided to watch the show due to an extremely positive opinion posted on the Star Crossed Anime Blog, which....

Cross Game Review

After a nice, long 50 episode run, we've come to the end of Cross Game, the anime adaptation of a manga by a relatively well known author - Mitsuru Adachi.  If you've read other articles on this site, this name might also be familiar as he is the author of one... Read more

Binbou Shimai Monogatari Review

Binbou Shimai Monogatari , which translates roughly into something like "The Story of Poor Sisters", is a 10-episode anime based of a seinen manga of the same name.  The general premise of the story is that two girls, the older being in middle school, live alone in a rather modest apartment (think Maison Ikkoku).  They live in relative poverty without parental support, as their mother has passed away and their father has left them for his gambling addictions.  The older sister takes up a part time job while the younger one devotes herself to housework, and by depending on each other, they are able to live independently......

Millenium Actress Review

I've always heard the name Satoshi Kon pop up in serious anime discussions, but my familiarity with his works has been fairly restricted.  There is, of course, Tokyo Godfathers, which was an enjoyable film that earned quite a positive review from me, but I've been told that it is the least indicative of his general style.  After watching Millenium Actress, I think I might have a better idea of what that "style" may be, and it is indeed a very interesting one....

Figure 17 Review

Figure 17 aired back in 2001 under a fairly uncommon format - it consists of 13 episodes, but each episode is about double the length of a typical anime episode.  So in terms of actual length, it is more or less the equivalent of a common 26-episode series.  The story revolves around Tsubasa, a girl from Tokyo who has moved to rural Hokkaido and finds herself having trouble fitting in (not helped by her reserved demeanor).  One day, she stumbles upon a crashed alien ship and discovers a man fighting for his life against a giant, violent creature.  .....

Spring 2010 Anime Preview Thoughts

The new season’s anime previews has been posted up at CF’s website – you can take a look here.  I’m going to take a page out of psgels’ book and write a commentary on each of the offerings.  However, I’m not as familiar with the backgrounds of various non-Ghibli studios and directors, so my impressions will not be very insightful, are based mostly on merely the plot descriptions and images.

Angel Beats: This one seems to be from the …

Summer Wars Review

Mamoru Hosoda is probably best known as the director of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, a film which was fairly popular both critically as well as commercially (despite limited release).  The praise was certainly well-deserved - it was a very well-made film, and clearly showed that Hosada possessed real talent for directing.  Of course, I did have some of my own criticisms of that film, particularly in regards to the balance of the sci-fi elements in the story in the overall plot.  Summer Wars has some similarities....
