Name of Anime Outlaw Star

Comment / Review A wonderful older series with that space cowboy feel, adventure, action, humor, and the lightest dusting of romance without the cloying aftertaste. It revolves around the adventures and increasingly focused quests of a very special spaceship and its mismatched crew. Gene Starwind is a great protagonist who is silly-smart-sexy-cool. And it has one of the great anime friendships, I think.

Rating 9/10

Recommended Definitely!!!

Name of anime: Chaos head.

Comment/Review: It was bizarre and kinda confusing. I mean, it starts of alright and somewhat interesting but then it gets outta hand. >.> I didn't watch the all the eps because some bored me a bit, but I skimmed a few and finished it. I found it a bit clique and didn't like the fact that the author threw too many concepts into one anime, if he would've done it in a correct manner, FINE, but no., the dude literally THREW them out there. >.> Other than the confusion part an the bad portrayment of themes, it was alright, I liked the Di-swords and the graphics. I found the over all concept really interesting, the whole trying to control people with delusions waves or with like visuals that they believe are there but are really not, AWESOME.

Shakugan no Shana III -The Final-

Comment: Most confusing season finale ever. The first two seasons were also confusing as well but they used it to heighten the emotional connection with the characters. This was something I thoroughly missed. This season felt like a grandiose expression of love between the clashing ideals of Yuji and Shana that seem more like an utter tragedy to me. It didn’t help that there was a lack of balance in pacing and development. In one episode, we’ll have flashy fights and then the next we’ll be bombarded with explanations. There was lots of side character focus, which I just really wanted to skip. But nonetheless, there were lots action scenes and deaths were awesome to watch that signaled the nearing of the end. Not the ending I hoped for a great series, but it definitely went out with a bang.

Rating: 6/10

Recommended? Not really. Watch it just to complete the whole series.

Comment / Review: It was okay overall, I didn't find anything interesting in the plot. I felt like it was more of a cheap bootleg of Sailor Moon.

Uta no Prince-sama


Comment / Review: For a reverse harem fan, I really loved this anime. and I am a sucker for singing hot guys. and not to mention Mamoru Miyano and Hiro Shimono are two of the seiyus (namely for Ichinose Tokiya and Kurusu Syo) which are two of my favorite seiyus. Tho what I did not like about this anime is the lack of "happenings" due to it having only 13 episodes.

Seriously. I know that most animes are 13 or 26 episodes only but that's just not enough. And she needs to focus on one guy 'cause I kinda felt that she was being a huge slut. Maybe that''s just cause I am jealous BAHAHAH. anyways, you get the point. The anime lacks a pinch of romance tho. She just need to focus on ONE guy like seriously Nanami. ><;; and of course, comedy. There are funny things happening like the one with Syo and Natsuki but that ain't enough. To sum it all up, they just need to show MORE.

The music is good too. This having the word "Uta" and "Prince" in the title really proved it. The character songs are one of my favorites ever. And I like how each song focuses on what instrument that character plays, like for the song of Jinguji Ren "Sekai no Hate Made Believe Heart" starts with a hot ass Saxophone and Kurusu Syo's "Otokogi Zenkai Go! Fight!" starts with the viola. <33

Rating: 8.5 out of 10
Recommended: Very much recommended for the ladies like me who like reverse harem. I have the feeling that guys wont be fond of this one but whatever<33

Highschool DxD

Comment/Review: I am basing my short review on my own scale for what it is, a harem anime. I did not start watching this expecting an incredibly engaging plot or amazing characters, no, I am watching this because it is a harem romantic comedy with a supernatural twist.
Basically, there is a plot that ties this high fanservice anime together, basically, the plot is split into 2 major story lines with the first 6 eps covering one part and the last 6 covering the next plot line. Animation and character design is not exactly the best but it does well enough that it doesn't detract from the show. Its a harem anime, there will be emphasis on ecchi, girls all going for one guy, but at least there is humor, the guy isn't a whiner or annoying at all, and he isn't going out of his way to avoid all these girls falling for him, he is seeking a harem which is a good change of pace similar to other harem anime that are actually good.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10

Recommended: Yes I will recommend this but only to people who enjoy harem anime like I do. This show will not be to every one's tastes.

Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin

Comment / Review: (may contain spoilers)

"Most people are prisoners, thinking only about the future or living in the past. They are not in the present, and the present is where everything begins." - Carlos Santana.

Dealing with the past is not easy especially when you commit something terrible. Say, a crime. Then, you think about the future but that little hope is so far away because where you are now is somewhere that you never want to be: prison. Trapped like a caged bird and nowhere to go, nowhere to run, your future is about to go down the drain faster than the rain pouring outside. This is what happens when you commit a crime. This is what happens when you disobey the law. This is what happens in Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin.

Well, I finished the series Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin over a rainy weekend. It's funny too since Coldrain also sings the OP song and this story is anything but hot. It is cold. It is thrilling. It is emotional and it throws drama right into your face with a boxing punch.

I have to say that this is one of the most underrated series I've seen in awhile. From the first episode, I was intrigued by possibly just the first 10 minutes. Now, I'm a bit fan of prison like theme and at first, it felt like watching Deadman Wonderland which I did enjoy also. Long thought cut short, this series creates a touching story, a story of emotional drama and psychological thriller. This series pushes violence in the RIGHT way unlike some series that has just presents unnecessary gore every 5 minutes. This anime did not make that mistake, at least from my point of view.

The first half of the series presented involves the prison style and what it is like to feel the guilt after committing a crime. It makes you feel the realism and the severe consequences of committing a bad deed. And of course in prison, there are prisoners and wardens. Unfortunately for our protagonists, they are not on good terms with a few particular characters namely Ishihara. He is one of the most sadistic characters in the series and I think most people (including myself) would probably want to beat him half to death after watching the first half.

But not all is gloom and doom because there are also characters that sparks light into that cave of darkness. That light would definitely be Sakuragi for his way of protecting the others after an emotional drama that left him scars. He is very driven to protecting what he believes is right and those are his friends. He can be pushed to his own physical limit by Ishihara but when faced with seeing his precious friends suffering, his rage reaches a boiling point where he disregards his own safety. Now, I found that to be truly inspiring. The other characters of the series are also quite interesting ranging their past and history involving the dark mood of the story. Such an example would be Mario. He is also noticeable in the series as one of the main characters. At first, he gets into an intense fight with Sakurgai but later on views him as a close brother figure and inspires to be like him. His character development in seen as one of the major points of the series and after watching him develop was quite an interesting turn throughout the progressing episodes.

As for the animation, I loved the execution as well as its performance and thought this series lived up to its expectations. Not that it's any surprising anyways since one of my studios, Madhouse is involved. The art is performed spectacular and darkens the mood of the story. Throughout the episodes, there are manga like sketches that conveys the mood the story and through the narrator dialogue covers the background. It captures the sense and style and I really enjoyed its unique performance. Additionally, there are scars that portrays not only the physical but mental manifestations that drove some characters to become what they are.

The OP song of this series is also quite catchy even though I'm not familiar with the band. I tend to skip a lot of OP songs but didn't let a go pass on this one. Why would I anyways when it's so damn catchy? Good job Coldrain, kudos to you.

Overall, my enjoyment of this series was decent and did not feel like a waste of time. There were hardly any cliches I've found and the driven characters' development of the story from hopelessness to a better future makes me want to learn about them more and more. This series is not an anime that should be dropped from the first few episodes (as I'm sure some people have). Instead, concentrate on the dark setting of the story and its driven characters. Concentrate on the realism and the reality of being sent to prison after committing a bad deed. Why? Because crime is real and the consequences are there. That little hope is still there though because after a long pouring weekend, a rainbow does shine into the sky. That rainbow represents hope, a hope for a better future. Have hope in yourself and concentrate instead on the present. Like the song by Coldrain and lyrics says:

We are not alone.

Also northworthy series that were completed 2 weeks ago:

GTO and Samurai Champloo


Comment/review: I started watching some comedy series lately involving action and humor including GTO which I finished yesterday and thought was hilarious and entertaining. Also, started watching Samurai Champloo after seen being mentioned a few times on ANN and this thread and another site.

For GTO, it had some the of the typical cliche and fan-service but overall, I found the pace and execution of the series to be quite entertaining. That and of course Onizuka's perverseness and teaching tactics. Laughing

Of course, I'm a sucker to these type of school life shows especially in the old school style as it brings on the nostologia. (like some people have recently from the Toonami reformation) To me, this was one of those series that you can't help but laugh regardless how crude the humor is portrayed as either sexual or threatening. (the constant "plans" Onizuka tries to make dates with mothers and the bully like tactics of the students to weaker classmates) And of course, the drama does deepens and some of the episodes gets serious that explores some of the realism of conflicts dealing with school and life. In fact, Onizuka teaches more about life than school which is what I found interesting about this show.

All in all after I finished watching this series, I thought it was pretty decent and gave me some good laugh. Hell, I laughed the very first five minutes of the series during the mall scene. I think that this anime employs comedy in a way that is refreshing, down to earth, and appeals to the more mature/olders male demographic audience. Overall, this series was entertaining and I would consider giving the manga a try in the mere future.

As for right now, I'm watching Samurai Champloo and the first episode was very impressive and something I watched over about three times especially during the fight scene in the bar. Mugen, Fuu, and Jin's interactions are fun to watch and the fuson of jazz and the epic soundtrack makes it even more enjoyable. Although I'm not a fan of historical theme series, this one definitely takes the cake.

What I found most interesting about this series so far is Watanabe's ability to shift focus from the past and the present through the cleaver usage of remix into the Edo period of Japan. I also admit that the artwork done is unique and gives a colorful background of the theme in the story. In my opinion, I never took notice of Japan as being so urban till this series of Edo period and thanks to the animators, I finally took notice of it now.

Again, the music of this series is just epic. Whether in fight, comedy, or a typically argument between the three trio, everything just fits into the scene at near perfection. The usage of the beat and the hip-hop makes you feel that you're part of the series as you go along despite this series being set in the Edo era.Also, that OP song...almost have it stuck completely in my head now. I was reading some of the comments on the Funimation channel and people were saying NOT to skip the OP. Damn, I couldn't agree more.

Episode 15 so far is my favorites with the ninja chick and a zoned out Mugen being tricked every 5 mins through her "creative" mind. The music, action, and teasing in the episode was especially entertaining and I watched the "fight" scene between her and Mugen about 6-7 times I hope so comes back later on in the series as she sure spiced things up. Dat clever girl ^_^

Well this series is trying to be perfect and it succeeded.

As for GTO, it definitely gave me some great laugh and moments.

Rating: 8/10 (GTO)
9/10 (Samurai Champloo)

Recommended: Both, yes

Name of Anime: Poyo Poyo

Comment/Review: This would technically be the last series I finished watching. It's about a sphere-shaped cat called Poyo-poyo and his owner. Anyone who has ever owned a cat will likely relate to much of what the show has to say. Each episode is around 3 minutes of kitty cat cuteness. If you don't handle cuteness very well, I wouldn't recommend it.

It made me laugh at least once in every episode, so I thought it was an alright show. Very brief episodes, though, as I mentioned.
