So after watching Jigoku Shoujo, I figured the Japanese idea of "horror" is probably a lot different from my idea of it. Some parts of Jigoku Shoujo were actually pretty funny, so I expected to either be scared during this anime or laugh at it. Did I do either? You know the drill, read on to find out!
Gyagu Manga Biyori is an anime that actually came out February 2005. Back then, I had read about it and was hoping it would get subbed, because I dig the gag manga anime genre. Hits like "Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoiyo!! Masarusan" and "Boboboubo Boubobo" have a special place in my heart. Did this gag anime live up to my strict expectations? Read on to find out:
In my Winter 2006 anime preview, I noted that this would probably be one of the more dramatic anime of the season. Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora (let’s call it Hantsuki for short) is a love story about two star-crossed (maybe) lovers. Ok, so it’s dramatic, but does that make it good? Read on to find out!
Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl. The title says it all! This anime had me at "Girl Meets Girl!" Seriously though, after reading the description of this anime, I thought it would be a low quality ero-game type dissapointment. The character designs looked good, but would the plot actually work out? Read on to find out!
Magikano (or Majikano?) seems like a pretty typical anime on the outside. It just looks like yet another magical harem where a few of the girls just happen to be the guy’s sisters. Taking a closer look though, I think Magikano has a lot of things going for it that set it apart from other anime coming out this season.
Before I saw this episode, I only knew two things about Kagihime Monogatari Eikyuu Alice Rinbukyoku. For one, it has a really long name (let’s call it Kagihime from now on)! I also knew that certain characters would have bunny ears. After seeing the first episode, can I honestly recommend watching more of this anime? Read on to find out!
Ginban Kaleidoscope had totally flown under my radar for the last few months. I finally decided to take a look at it. The story follows Sakurano Tazusa, a Japanese figure skater supposedly worth $10 billion dollars (give or take, based on the current strength of the yen). After taking a bad fall at a competition in Canada, she finds that a Canadian stunt pilot has possessed her! I sense already that this is not your typical sports anime.
