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, […]

A Review On Kiba: An Anime Based On A TCG

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Anime

Great and high memorable anime series can originate from a ton of factors. Some come as adaptations of manga, some from light novels, and some from games or even from original adaptations. What’s amazingly rare, is finding a great, deep, and dark show that originated from a TCG (trading card game). Kiba (2006) is just one of them. Unlike most shows of the genre, Hiroshi Kojina (director) stated that “(the series) absolutely won’t have any plot elements that curry favor to children.” He further added, “Kiba won’t be the type of show to put ‘human drama’ on the back burner.” With words like that coming from the creative team, and a studio like Madhouse handling animation, Kiba managed to become what perhaps no anime of its type could. Something more than its TCG basis.   The real problem is how it compares to other shounen-action-fantasy […]
