Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato) Vol. 1 – Anime DVD Review

Star Blazers.jpg

Star Blazers is a totally retro anime that was known in Japan as “Space Battleship Yamato.” It’s considered a classic anime and therefore, a must watch! But does the “classic” label mean it’s too old to be compared to current anime?

I recently had a chance to check out the Star Blazers Series 1 DVD Collection. Here’s my review of Disc 1 (Episodes 1-5).

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Vol. 1 – Anime DVD Review

Jojos Bizarre Adventure Vol 1.jpg

As part of my “review more American Anime Time stuff” campaign, I contacted some companies and asked if they could send me anything to review. Super Techno Arts was kind enough to send a copy of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Vol. 1.

Coincidentally, back in the Playstation (1) days there was a fighting game called “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure” that I used to have. I don’t really remember it that well, but it seemed pretty cool. Apparently the game was based on the same manga that this anime was based on.

Blood: The Last Vampire – Anime Review

Saya

So I was browsing around the Blockbuster.com anime section (which is extremely weak; mostly pokemon!) and found this anime called Blood: The Last Vampire. The description said it was about this vampire named Saya who had to fight chiropterans. I thought the plot sounded kinda familiar. Apparently, this is the prequel to the TV anime series, Blood+. So that explains the "+" part. I wonder if they’ll make a sequel to that called "Blood++" (nerd joke, right here!)
