When I heard there was an anime called “Black Lagoon” coming out, I figured it would be a horror. Y’know, like the “Creature from the Black Lagoon?” Anyway, I was really surprised when I actually watched the episode.

I hadn’t really heard of Magical Pokan as a new Spring anime, but once I saw some screenshots posted on Matthew’s blog, I wanted to see this anime for myself! Froth-Bite did a sub of it, so here’s my review!

Himawari! – Anime First Impressions

Himwari! is the sole new ninja anime of the season (I think); as such, I was really looking forward to it! Finally, someone actually subbed the first episode! So did the first episode live up to my strict ninja anime expectations?

Naruto Vs. Cowboy Bebop: Blatant Plagiarism?

cowboy bebop vs naruto.gif

I saw this on krunk4ever and had to share it. I dunno if this is a recent thing or what, but this gif shows what appears to be Naruto heavily lifting some animation cues from a scene in Cowboy Bebop. Looks pretty incriminating to me. Perhaps the animation guys who did Cowboy Bebop were also on the Naruto team and this is just coincidence…

For more fun with plagiarism, check out the Slam Dunk incident that happened a while back.

Anime Fanservice – A Double Standard?

Easter Fanservice

While checking out some reviews on some of the new season’s anime, I noticed some conflicting opinions on fanservice. For those not in the know, fanservice generally refers to gratuitous scenes that are only there to please the (mostly male) fans. This includes shower scenes, panty shots, and, in entire episode form, the anime beach episode.
