Yumekui Merry is 13 episodes long. After I’d seen the first episode, I was going to drop it. Yumekui just wasn’t entertaining, enjoyable or interesting to me. For some reason, I decided to continue, I kept thinking “Well, it can only get better, right?” No, it never offers more than what you’d expect from it after watching the first episode. Don’t get me wrong, Yumekui isn’t a bad anime but it’s not the kind of anime I like. I knew this when I tried watching Shakugan no Shana because many people seem to like it, only to find how annoyingly bad and boring it was to me. Yumekui is the same as Shakugan. If you’ve seen Shakugan, you’ll feel like you’ve seen Yumekui. Continue Reading Yumekui Merry is a 13 episode nightmare…

Damn, I'm on a cruise ship and there aren't any girls around me

Mirai no Football is a short 1 volume 5 chapter manga about a football(soccer) player who is thrown into the past. If the short length already doesn’t interest you, it’s safe to say you won’t be missing much. If the short summary doesn’t interest you, this probably isn’t for you. If, however, you want to know at a glance whether you want to read this short and non-time consuming manga, come inside. Continue Reading Mirai no Football…

Yes Ma'am!

What is a guilty pleasure? It’s something you(or I) may like or take pleasure in but wouldn’t want others to know. It’s something we like, though it goes against our ethos. It’s something we are ashamed to like. Star Driver is all of that and more. It’s 25 episodes long and bears many trademarks of the mecha and shounen genres.

Beelzebub the ova underwhelms as expected

Rattle of face bending legend

Beelzebub (Hirotta Akachan wa Daimaou!?) is an ova which is 30 minutes long and typical shounen fare without the humor. I don’t know if it’s whether I’ve already read the manga and the fact that I knew everything that was coming or simply that the anime failed on the comedic front. Beelzebub doesn’t fail to deliver the copious amounts of unrealistic violence, though, which could be good or bad depending on your view and viewing mood.

Vampire Juujikai (Record of a Fallen Vampire) manga review

Hello, I'm count Dracula

Vampire Juujikai is all about the story. The art is shoujo-esque but not bad by any means. I’m not a huge fan of shoujo art styles but Juujikai’s art style is tolerable. This manga isn’t about the violence or the action, it’s all about the amazing story and the great characters. Those should be your reasons for reading Vampire Juujikai.

Flame of Recca manga review

He just got shot down!

First of all, I’d like to point out that if you’ve ever tried any other work by Anzai Nobuyuki, none of them even begin to compare with Flame of Recca. His other works include Mar, Mar Omega and Mixim 11. Mar was alright, haven’t tried Mar Omega and Mixim 11 is his latest work but also his worst. I couldn’t even read more than a couple chapters of Mixim, he tries to appeal to a younger audience while making mature type perverted humor. It simply didn’t work and came across as really weird and uninteresting. But this isn’t a review about Mixim 11 so I’ll end that rant here.

Flame of Recca is Anzai’s earlier work but it’s also his best, in my opinion. Recca is a manga that isn’t afraid to be dark. There are moments where you realize how twisted and dark it’s become and how well it fits into the story, even with the silly moments. Recca is a 33 volume manga so it’s not a quick read but you may be amazed at how quickly you can get through it.

SWOT review

He's a vampire!

SWOT is a three volume manga with only 20 chapters. There’s also a oneshot but it’s basically the same thing. SWOT is a typical Shounen type manga. A story that barely makes sense, gratuitous amount of fight scenes with wall shattering “martial arts”. Also, buxom girls that are later added to try and garner attention…the mangaka drew some great girls but couldn’t save his manga. It looks to have been canceled early, the story kept hinting at a long series but ultimately rushed to an ending.

Hoshi no Samidare or Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer

Omg the chosen one is psychotic!

Samidare(aka Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer) is a 10 volume manga which I feel needs more visibility. Samidare is about a guy who wakes up to find a lizard in his room. This lizard proceeds to speak. Uttering such nonsense as, “Save the world” “Find the princess” and “I’m a lizard knight”. This guy’s name is Yuuhi and he’s totally unfazed by the lizard that no one but he can see. Now, keep in mind that this is only the very beginning and things really develop as you read. Samidare is hopelessly addicting and honestly epic in scope and breadth.

The Sacred Blacksmith was a great letdown

Was fanservice the only reason to watch The Sacred Blacksmith?

The Sacred Blacksmith seems like it would be great just from the name alone. Yet, it includes well done art and animations with some great action scenes. Why, then, was I entirely unimpressed and left with a bitter aftertaste? Continue Reading The Sacred Blacksmith was a great letdown…
