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 […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Anime

Title: Iria: Zeiram the Animation Year: 1994 Episodes: 6 Company: Ashi Production Genre: Horror Introduction: I sat in the darkness. Iria: Zeiram the Animation flickered on the screen as our only illumination. The last credits scrolled across the tv before fading. I turned to my friend and said, “We’ve got to watch the next episode now.” Neither of us knew we were “binge watching” Iria.  The term failed to exist at that time. In spite of us knowing we had to work the next day we pressed on to the next episode.  Whenever I watch Iria again I think of my first viewing. I fondly recall the intense watching session.  It remains one of the best anime watching experiences I’ve had. What It’s About: Zeiram the Animation is an OVA prequel to the live-action movie series of the same name. Movie fans will prolly notice a plot hole. The […]
