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 […]

Cardfight Vanguard: Card Game Anime Of The Century

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Anime

Cardfight Vanguard has quickly risen up the anime ranks and it’s currently, in my opinion, the third greatest show to have existed. The series controversially decided to leave the old cast for us to get a sequel series in the form of Cardfight Vanguard G. There’s no doubt that the sequel will be great. However, the fact of me thinking that this is a grave mistake is unavoidable. It’ll be extremely challenging to pass this series. If you’re the kind who loves action and good visuals, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Cardfight Vanguard: The First Season Season 1 of the anime is around 70 episodes and it starts the franchise off on a high note. Cardfight Vanguard is a mysterious game that suddenly came to the world. In the midst of it all, Aichi Sendou is your average student who’s a bit timid, […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Anime

Today, I decided to review Eureka 7, one of the few mecha anime shows out there. The entire show is about two main characters and their relationship with one another. The real question is, did they get things right? Well, that’s a bit complicated in my own personal opinion. I’ll just cover it all here in my review. Now, let’s get on with the review. Eureka 7: The Good First of all, Studio Bones is the creative mind behind Eureka 7. Although it doesn’t really take any chances. In terms of design, they’re very well-made. The characters are east to differentiate because all of them are quite unique. To add, the themes that this show presents also proves to be one of its strong points. Compared to mecha shows that came before it (and even after), Eureka 7 handles a range of extraordinary themes to […]
