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.

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl: An Honest Review By Earl

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Anime

When you think of a series that’s been done to death, Pokémon is usually the first to come to mind. While I grew up watching and loving the original Pokémon series as a kid and dabbed in Pokémon Advanced, I found myself wondering if anyone still likes the series. In all honesty, this was the time when I found myself becoming less of a fan ever since high school happened. However, I still enjoyed the franchise as a kid as it offered something I always wanted to go on: that is on an adventure. For most people, Ash as the main protagonist isn’t very appealing. However, what I loved about him is that he never gives up in pursuing his dreams. And he can be too kind to other people as well. I then decided to ask a friend about their opinion about the Diamond and Pearl […]

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura: A Review By Earl Part 2

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Anime

As you may have seen last week, I’ve posted Part I of my Cardcaptor Sakura review. I covered some of the basics of the anime there. I suggest you read it first before continuing to this review. Without delaying it any further, here’s Part 2! Cardcaptor Sakura: The Comical Side Of Things The series has a surprising knack for clever comedic timing and delivery. Not necessarily to a gut-busting level, but certainly to a point where it’s even funnier than your run-in-the-mill anime series. The show knows how to emphasize a joke without explaining what it meant. As is clear from almost the first scene, Sakura’s older brother Touya teases her for being a “monster”. When Sakura loudly retorts that she doesn’t stomp around, the camera emphasizes her feet and the sound design makes it feel explosive – in other terms like she’s on a stomping […]
