Pokémon XY: A Review On Ash’s Kalos Region Journey

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Anime

The Pokémon XY Series first aired on October 17, 2013. It ran strong for over 3 years and officially ended back in October 27, 2016. The 6th Generation of the Pokémon anime not only redeemed itself after the disgrace that was Black and White (which I still think deserves some credit), but it ranks up there as one of the best. So, it’s the perfect time to take a trip down the memory lane. Let’s look back at what was the best Pokémon anime has offered since Advanced Generation, and even for the Original Season for that matter. Pokémon XY: Its Comparison With Black And White It’s certainly not the opinion of many, but there are others out there who think that the Black and White series was a huge failure. I’m one of those people who actually liked Black and White. However, I’m willing […]

A Storied History You can’t think about anime unless you think about mecha. The genre has been around as long as anime has been popular. In fact, you could argue that it was central to popularizing anime, especially among Western audiences. This momentum was no doubt a boon for many creators who now had a larger audience to bring their own creations to. With that in mind I declare March my month of mecha. What better way to celebrate it than by making a list of the Top 10 Classic Mecha Anime? These are some mecha anime that left an undeniable mark on the medium. Mobile Suit Gundam (First Gundam) Without Yoshiyuki Tomino, one of anime and the mecha genre’s most iconic series would not exist. In 1979 audiences were blessed with the very first entry in the now long running Gundam series. What was once […]

Pokémon Black And White

Pokémon Black and White: A Review On Ash’s Unova Journies

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Anime

I know a lot of the fan base is going to curse me for this, but I LOVE THE BLACK AND WHITE (Best Wishes in Japanese) SEASON of Pokémon. The hate for this series is utter nonsense and the constant “Ice Cream Pokémon” criticism is starting to get old. It’s actually much better than it looks and if people would stop comparing it with the Original Season, Advanced Generations and the Diamond and Pearl Season. You’d be able to see how old school the Black and White season really is. Story wise, it starts off as all new Pokémon seasons do with Ash Ketchum setting out on a new adventure. Yet, he’s still 10 years old. How does this guy never age? Teach me your secrets master! Anyway, he sets out on a journey to a brand new region with butt-loads of brand new Pokémon […]

Breakdown Enter a dark and dismal future where humanity struggles to barely survive. This is’t the typical dystopia though. Imagine a colossal city that spans layers so deep you can travel for days and never see the real sun. In this endless maze of metal and stone, a sparse number of humans somehow get by as they avoid the machines hunting them. It is a world as mysterious as it is endless. Any semblance of an answer to one thing brings with it dozens of new questions. This is the world of Blame! Is it a movie worth watching? How original and entertaining is it? Read on to find out. Synopsis The exact date isn’t known. The only thing that is however is that at some point far in the past humans once had the ability to control the sprawling city. Then one day a strange contagion […]

Mobile Suit Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans Review

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Anime

Breakdown The Gundam series has always, as a trademark staple, given us humanizing and engrossing portrayals of war and human conflict. In almost every iteration and entry in the franchise, we see a futuristic society in or on the verge of conflict. Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans is no different. However this may be one entry with the darkest premise yet. This is an era that sprung up from the very ravages of conflict and it shows. The very title of the show hints at it after all. Thus, with that in mind, is it a good anime? Is it worthy of your time? Read on to find out. Synopsis To reflect the darker setting, this isn’t the ‘Cosmic Era’ or ‘After Colony’ era. Instead this is the ‘Post Disaster’ era. Society has been so defined by conflict that the years are counted around it. In […]

Gundam Seed Destiny

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny Review

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Anime

Breakdown The First Alliance-PLANT War is over but thing’s aren’t as rosy as we’d like it to be. This is a world where Earth is largely home to ‘natural’ humans. Outer space on the other hand hosts numerous colonies known as ‘PLANT’s’. Here, genetically enhanced humans known as ‘Coordinators’ reside. Enter a story of war, human struggle and the differences that often drive us apart. Before continuing with this review we highly recommend you look at Mobile Suit Gundam SEED first. This both helps you get a full grasp of what’s at stake here while avoiding any confusion or spoilers for those curious about the original series. That said, let’s take a look at Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny. Synopsis Humanity’s tale is one of struggle. We fight over resources, money and even petty differences. In the far future of the ‘Cosmic Era’, things are no different. […]
