Blue Exorcist Anime Review

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Anime

Breakdown The idea of Satan himself having a son isn’t exactly a novel one. We’ve seen it used quite a number of times before and here we’re gonna see it again. However what if we took that and combined it with a world where a secret war has long been ongoing between men and demons? The only thing standing between demons infiltrating the veil between worlds being highly trained exorcists overseen by the Vatican itself. Welcome to the premise of Blue Exorcist also known as Ao no Exorcist. Its long been a popular manga and sounds quite interesting on paper but is the anime worth its weight or should you look elsewhere? Read on and see what we had to say about it. Synopsis Blue Exorcist is, at its core, a typical Shonen Manga made into an anime. A young teenager, Rin Okumura lives with his brother Yukio Okumura […]

Breakdown We all know about Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, especially the latter for many. This anime franchise has fans both young and old and has been around for decades.

Or does it instead falter and waver where it shouldn’t? Keep reading and we’ll tell you what we thought about this new foray into the Dragon Ball world.

Recap Though it might vary depending on your tastes, 2017 was not a bad year for anime. We had a healthy dose of anime across the various genres. Though arguably some were downright mediocre while others were merely acceptable. On the other hand, we had the much hyped heavy hitters like Attack On Titan Season 2. We also had praiseworthy entries like My Hero Academia and Little Witch Academia. At the very least we can say everyone got a bit of something they could enjoy. Needless to say, this is always a good thing.  Will 2018 be a better year for anime? Let’s look at what we can expect for Winter 2018. Looking Ahead From what we see so far, the Winter lineup for 2018 could get a breakdown description of half hype but also half ‘meh’. On one hand there’s a number of obscure, newer shows […]

Breakdown Shakespeare once said that ‘all the world’s a stage and all the men and women in it merely actors’. Similarly, numerous psychologists and sociologists have spoken about the concept of ‘self’. Do we really show our true self in our daily interactions with others or are they all finely crafted masks? Do we even know our true self and the person we really are as much as we’d like to think? It’s questions like these that Persona 4 the video game and by extension its anime presents to its audience. In fact, it’s there in the very lyrics of the theme song ‘Pursuing My True Self’. Is Persona 4 The Animation worth the watch or should you pass on it? Read on to find out what we thought! Synopsis With his parents working overseas a young Yu Narukami finds himself sent from the city to […]

Breakdown In a world where everyone’s insane is the one sane man really the crazy one? In much the same way, in a world where everyone can use magic is the person born without an affinity for it the abnormal one? To us that might seem ridiculous. However think about it for a second outside of what you consider ‘normal’.  In a world where our fantasy is their reality a puzzling situation like that can make quite the adventure. Black Clover is an anime that gives us a scenario like this among others but is it worth watching? Let’s learn some more about it and hopefully find out. Synopsis Two boys each born around the same time and raised together. They are Asta and Yuno and though they grew up with one another, sometimes your birth can drastically change your life. In Clover Kingdom being born with […]
