    Review for DemonBane
    This is more than gundum fights, it more like an fight of magic to save the world.

    He become an master to an magic doll or artifact to boost him n the robot he fight to protect. It an wicked little show to watch, but it one of it kind for me. The ending is tricky but it make sense in a way of speaking. but dont take my word. Go watch it

    Intrepid Investigator battles the Cthulhu Mythos...with a giant magic powered mecha!
    This series is amazing, with disparate elements brought together into a mighty story only the Japanese could successfully pull off. The setting is HP Lovecraft's Arkham City, seemingly in the 1930's based on buildings, cars and the Tommy machine guns used by thug level villains. Except their are also electric guitars, RPG launchers and...giant mecha, some of which are based on magic, and others ...

    Demonbane is a must see for Mecha and/or Magical Girl/Supernatural fans.
    Okay, this series hits all the right notes. First, as a guy, it has big robots beating the crap out of each other.

    Next, there are the magical spells that create finishing moves for the robots.

    Comical characters (many of whom, in anime fashion, are big breasted and lightly clad) with unique personalities drive the story as much as the plot line.

    The first half of the series (Eps. ...

  • Reasonably entertaining, but not especially stellar
    I'm a huge fan of the Lovecraft mythos and of seeing different takes on it, so the show had a good hook for me. Ultimately, though, I think it fell flat in several areas. Much of the plot feels condensed (in a poor way), made all the more glaring by the presence of elements that didn't contribute meaningfully at all. The titular mech itself, for instance, didn't really add much to the story, and ...

    It has it's moments.
    Demonbane was not that good. I liked how the characters, items, places, and robots names are based off of Cthulu Mythos. The main character is likable and so is his partner. The romance in it was interesting and sweet. The dynamic kills are exciting and gets you pumped.

    The bad part about Demonbane was the fighting scenes. The robot fighting in Demonbane was pretty much boring. You can hardly ...

    Outstanding, Must-See Series!
    I did not plan to sit and watch the whole series in one sitting, but here I am, just finished with the final episode and not looking forward to work tomorrow! I'm not going to write any spoilers, but I think this is a great show with believable characters (under the circumstances). The concepts, settings, and everything else all seem consistent with each other, which is huge for me. I am always ...
