Spirit of Wonder: Scientific Boys Club
(2001)

Spirts of wonder part 2
In 1954, a group of explorers head off to Mars.

just like with the last one

the plot was good

the character designs were excellent

the dub was fabulous

overall it's definitely worth it.

Spirit of Wonder: China-san no yûutsu
(1992)

Spirts of wonder
A young Chinese landlady has an inventor for a tenant, whose latest invention is a means to travel in space.

the plot was good

the character designs were spot on

the dub cast were good

pretty good overall

Outlanders
(1986)

what a waste
Did i seriously in 2020 decide to waste 1 hour and 42 minutes (i watched it twice for a dub comparison) of my time watching this boring movie. Well i guess i should've found better things to do.

I guess if you want to have something which alien sex porn then i suppose you might enjoy this.

Giant Robo: Ginrei Special
(1994)

Okay for a side story
Personally this three OVA's where just okay for a side as they didn't really have much to add from the actual story it self.

Majority of it is about Daisuku being captured by Genya and being used by them and with Ginrei being used as fan server. If you want something echhi I guess you might enjoy.

Not bad not great.

Jaianto Robo: The Animation - Chikyuu ga Seishi Suru Hi
(1992)

Crush them giant robo
Daisuku is a young boy who can control the most powerful robot in the world by the name of giant robo. He teams up with the police force to stop the Suzuma drive from getting into the evil Genya's hands.

While it's only 7 episodes long in my opinion this anime is a real gem to find and a pretty good classic if you are into mecha type animes.

Everything about this OVA including the art style, the dramatic music and story is definitely worth it.

Out of it's two dubs I think the newer is better then the old one. Though it's personal preference.

Definitely, recommend this.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo
(2015)

Needs more love
Attending the private school Suzaku High Ryu Yamada is a student completely bored with his surroundings. One day while following the honor student Urara Shiraishi up the stairs falls down on her waking up to have switched bodies by accidentally kissing. Finding out their ability to to swap bodies Toranosuke Miyamura, the student councils president discovers their abilities to go into one and others bodies offering them the abandoned supernatural studies club and clubroom.

I watched this in one whole night and I really enjoyed this. I would definitely say its very underrated and probably needs another season. Not mention it has really good characters and top tier anime waifus.

Fate/stay night
(2006)

A good start for a new Fate fan if you want to get a feel of the series
Shioru is an avarage high school teenager who has this apply to look into a basic structure with his. He finds himself cornered into a fight with lancer and uses his powers the first to summon a strong female warrior by the name of Saber. Shirou learns about the holy wars and must contribute to end it.

I have heard bad things about this adaption especially since studio deen wasn't very well received at the time with it's uneven animation and adaptions though I personally though it was pretty decent.

The voce cast including Sam Riegel, Kate Higgins, Stephanie Sheh, Mela Lee, Jamieson Price, Grant George and Liam O'Brein all did a good job voicing their characters.

It might not be the best adaptation since I know the franchise has grown a lot since then but it's decent if you want to have a bit of a feel of the series.

ThunderCats Roar
(2020)

This is why i stopped watching cartoons
I remember seeing a trailer for this on youtube 2 years ago and i wasn't impress. After watching 3 episodes i standed correct that this series is atrocious.

First off do cartoon network even care anymore??? Cause this reboot is a primary example of how little they think of their audience.

How dare they not bring back the 2011 series. How dare they make this reboot.

As for the show itself. Oh boy where do I beginning. The character designs and animation look terrible seriously what type of artists and cartoonist are they hireing these days?? Lion O looks like he had eatten an entire bucket of KFC chicken, Cheetara looks like a guy, the thunderkits look like if they had an electric shock and as for the rest it all looks like the characters were done in like 5 minutes.

The actual plots just insult my intelligence and it's like they want to make kids of today's generation look stupid.

I don't want hear the excuse "It's a kids show" cause I have grown up with Cartoons which can be dark but at sametime have an aply were both kids and adults can enjoy. Do me a favor and ignore any loonatic, dumb parent or stupid kid that is giving this trash a high rating.

I feel sorry for these voice actors cause i do love Max Mittleman, Erica Lindbeck and Patrick Setiz in the animes they have voiced on.

Overall don't watch this at all want something try something like Thundercats 2011, any thing from the DCAU, Young Justice or better yet watch an anime.

P.S How cute of you cartoon network for sending your goons to give a negative response to my 2011 review which I wrote 2 years ago. Just remember people like you are the reason why people don't watch your network anymore.

Venom
(2018)

Very good
I will be honest at first i wasn't too sure what to expect for this movie especially after seeing a lot of the critical reviews but after actually watching it i am pretty impressed.

The acting was good Tom Hardy definitely knocked Topher Grace out of the park with his performance as venom and his gravely voice as the symbiote. Though I do wish Venom had a bit more screen time instead of him becoming venom in the second half of the movie.

The visuals and the designs for the symbiotes were pretty cool, it definitely opens doors to a sequel.

Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
(2000)

Better then it's last film
It is many thousand years in the future. Vampires once ruled the night but have seen their numbers reduced by fearless bounty hunters. One such hunter is D, the halfbreed son of a human mother and vampire father. When a girl from a rich family is taken from her home by the vampire Meier Link, her father contracts both D and the Markus brothers (a rival group of hunters) to race to retrieve her. As the heroes fight their way through Meier's hired guards, they begin to suspect that the girl may have gone with him willingly.

In my opinion because of how gory, terrifying and violent it is from it's previous film I generally find it way better. Not to mention the dubbing for this actually seems a lot more smoother and experienced then the one from the previous film.

If you are a fan of the previous film, you will definitely like this one.

Kyûketsuki hantâ D
(1985)

A pretty good halloween movie
Doris Lang was bitten by a vampire so she hires a vampire hunter called D to hunt down this vampire. While keeping it a secret from her little brother.

I watched both the VHS and the re release blu-ray versions and while I do prefer the blu-ray release since it's in HD format which you probably wouldn't have got at the time. But the VHS was okay despite moments of poor quality.

On to the story it's a pretty good classic watch. The animation was good and it looked better in HD. I thought the first dub was pretty bad as everyone sounded like someone from a cheesy children's horror film. The second dub was a bit better but on a sub-par with it's original audio. If you want to watch it dubbed I recommend the new Sentai dub.

If you are getting in the spirit for halloween I recommend this.

DearS
(2004)

I decided to copy this from paragraph from one of the existing reviews
He is a 17-year old high school student who ends up living with a sexy alien girl. Despite this not-so-original premise, there is constant caper and comic relief to keep you coming back. What would happen if a beautiful girl become subservient to a rather hostile-but-good-natured young man? Chaos and comedy, that's what (and a good dash of sexual innuendo and titillation)! A series of 12 episodes were released in 2004 (a bonus 13th added with the DVD) and they definitely deliver in entertainment value. We are first introduced to the main protagonist and his alien sidekick early on, and their initial chemistry upon meeting for the first time is typical "He doesn't want her/She wants him" situation. In almost every episode, we can see Takeya complain and show frustration over his predicament with a sexy alien. She tells him her name but due to her complex alien language, he gives her the title "Ren" for short. She comes from an alien race dubbed "DearS" by humans. Ren is a curvy, busty typical anime heroine with unrealistic measurements (to seemingly counterbalance the "average Joe" nature of Takeya). Despite this, Takeya himself is rather attractive as well, tall, and slim, with a typical "I don't care" attitude. Takeya lives alone but is almost regularly visited by additional female characters, from his childhood friend and neighbor Naneko, to Mitsuka, his step sister, and even other DearS. We can see Takeya and Ren grow from "subservient/reluctant" to a genuinely friendly and caring relationship throughout the episodes.

Positives: Fun soundtrack, bright and crisp animation, good chemistry and interaction between the characters, satisfies certain fantasies, faithful to the manga.

Negatives: Doesn't revolutionize any genre it represents, misogynistic plot devices and themes throughout the story, shallow and annoying in some areas, rather short amount of episodes.

Haibane renmei
(2002)

A hidden gem which i think should have more recognition
Summery

A girl with no name falls from the sky and finds herself in a very mysterious land, where nobody remembers of their previous life. In this land, angel-like beings, ash wings, have formed a society and live in harmony with the people of the town, helping them out. Later on, the girl gets a name--Rakka--grows a pair of wings and receives her own halo. Rakka is now an ash wing, too. While the new place seems to be like heaven for Rakka, she soon finds out that everything is not as easy as it might look. Why did Rakka become an ash wing, and what is the mystery behind her new home?

I finish watch this yesterday and I have to say it was a very fun anime to watch. The characters were good, the voice acting was excellent and the sound track was beautiful.

I highly recommend this.

NieA under 7
(2000)

Makes sure you aren't under 7 when watching this
An ordinary cram school student moves into a flat which had an alien living as a roomate. NieA is an alien who doesn't have an antena spends the whole day not having any care in the world and loves to annoy Mayuko.

The anime does start off as some generic comedy but letter gets interesting goes very deep that you begin to feel suspense. Which also does have a very good message to convey.

It's definitely something different from what I am normally watching.

The dub is also very solid.

Pretty fun to watch overall.

Hundred
(2016)

Generic but still watchable
Hundred is the only weapon that can counter the mysterious Savage life form attacking Earth. To become a Slayer who wields this Hundred, Hayato Kisaragi successfully enrolls in the marine academy city ship Little Garden. However he feels a strange yet familiar sense of incongruity towards Emil Crossford, his roommate who somehow knows him from somewhere. On top of that, as soon as he enters the school, he is challenged to a duel by the "Queen" and the school's most powerful Slayer, Claire Harvey.

The story itself I find rather generic and pretty obvious but does still have some watchable features.

Aside from good animation and decent dubbing.

I will let the audience decide if they want to watch it.

First Squad: The Moment of Truth
(2009)

First Squad
Set during the opening days of World War II on the Eastern Front. Its main cast are a group of Soviet teenagers with extraordinary abilities; the teenagers have been drafted to form a special unit to fight the invading German army. They are opposed by a Schutzstaffel (SS) officer who is attempting to raise from the dead a supernatural army of crusaders from the 12th-century Order of the Sacred Cross and enlist them in the Nazi cause.

I have no comment on the actual movie itself other then it was a decent watch.

Shinryaku! Ika Musume
(2010)

A really funny anime
This anime is pretty much about a girl who was born with tentacles for hair that goes by the name squid girl comes to surface to invide mankind but ends up living with a family of 2 sisters by the name Chizuru and Aiko and their brother Takeru. She learns how about humans live up to surfaces and makes many new friends.

This anime overall is some good light hearted fun, I am not too sure why someone compared it to Mighty B considering they are nothing alike. The characters are fun and pretty likeable one you get to know them.

While there is a bit of blood and mild language it's a pretty good anime that a young audiance could watch and a good anime for beginners.

If you want something that is light hearted I recommend this.

Re: Zero kara hajimeru isekai seikatsu
(2016)

Time to start life in a new world
Modern day teenage gamer, Natsuki Subaru, is thrust into a mysterious fantasy RPG styled world on his way home from a convenience store. As he searches for the heroine who he assumes summoned him he crosses paths with a silver haired half elf girl. She helps him, he returns the favor by helping her persue a stolen item of hers that leads to their untimely demises. . . Until Subaru wakes up again realizing he has the power to "Return by Death". This new discovery as well as his determination to help the half elf, opens his world to an unexpected turn of extremely unfortunate events.

While the I did find it a bit of a headache that he would always come back to life but luck every time he does it does make the series more and it does leave a suspense of what will happen this time.

I will build on my review when I have watched season.

Zero no tsukaima
(2006)

nah
Some attitude face girl called Louis summons a boy from another dimension to be her familiar at the summoning ceremony. After he is summoned the boy is forced being louis dog who cleans her landarey and does what ever she says.

This anime is just annoying, I am sorry I watch all episodes and I just could not get into it at all.

The characters are lame

Louise is just an unlikeable and insufferable b####h. She does nothing but abuse Saito and be a spoiled brat. She is not even cute. 90% of the time I fantasy about grabbing by her hair and smash her face through a table.

Saito is just boring there is honestly nothing interesting about him at all. On top of that he is a simp.

The other characters aren't exactly anything special either.

I will admit though the dub was pretty enjoyable vocally it's a shame other seasons never got dubbed. Cristina Vee, Jonathan Meza, Lauren Landa and Jennifer Alyx did a good job but not even that could raise my score.

Look if you like this anime more power to you. But honestly I would recommend something like Re:Zero, Konosuba or Escaflowne.

BNA
(2020)

Another amazing anime by tigger studios
Summary

In the 21st century, where the existence of humanoid animals that have been living in the darkness for centuries have been revealed to the world. One day, Michiru, who was a normal high-school student, suddenly turns into a tanuki person; running away, she seeks refuge in Anima City, a place set up for humanoid animals to be able to live as themselves. While there, Michiru encounters a wolf person, Shirou Ogami, who goes on to investigate why she became a humanoid animal, and in the process gets mixed up in even stranger events. Present days, the humanity finds out that among them live demi humans (half animal, half human). The series focuses on the human Michiru, who has been a human 'til today. She suddenly becomes a half human, half tanuki. Because of that, she runs away from her home and finds refuge in a city 'Anima City'. The girl meets new friends, who just like her want to find out the reason behind their transformation.

The actual story of the anime is very well handled. The characters are well written and mostly likeable. But I think the animation oif it was the main highlight of the it.

Really good anime overall.

Episodes subbed and dubbed are all available on Netflix.

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War
(2020)

Now this is DC
After a failed plot from the Justice League from Darksied. Various members are killed or controlled by Darksied's invasion. It's up to the remaining member to put a stop to take back the earth.

The movie was definitely one of the best New52 movie i have seen if this is last one which it kinda felt then definitely was a brilliant conclusion. Though i wasn't exactly a fan of how constantine was the reason why the whole mess happened how batman was easily being control when he should have normally had a plan against darksied's control.

But other then those two i am pretty satisfied with the actual result of this movie.

Appurushîdo
(2004)

a good thing took watch for a long car journey
In a utopian society created at the end of the third world war, a female warrior who has been plucked from the badlands begins to see cracks in this new facade. And what does this community have planned for the rest of humankind?

I was in a long car journey which for 3 hours long and i needed something to entertain me and this movie pretty much did its job.

Ôran kôkô hosutobu
(2006)

My new favorite romantic comedy
At the ultra prestigious Ouran High School, Haruhi Fujioka looks for a quiet place to read and walks into an unused music room, and accidentally stumbles across the notorious Ouran High School Host Club, a group of boys who entertain the girls of the school for profit. When Haruhi accidentally breaks an expensive vase belonging to the wacky Host Club, she is made to serve under them until her debt is paid off. Haruhi is soon made a Host, but in order to pay off what she owes, she must continue to allow the Host Club's customers to believe she is a boy.

The anime has a really hilarious spectrum towards. Some episodes can get a bit stupid but other then that it still has a good story.

The dub cast is amazing including Vic Mignogna, Caitlin Glass, Travis Willingrahm, Luci Christian and J. Tatum were all top notch. Fun fact for fullmetal alchemist fans Tamaki and Haru are both voiced by the same actors who did Edward Elric and Winry Rockbell. Screw funimation for kicking out a key voice actor over a baseless allegation.

I also loved the music they added. It really suited the nature of the anime.

Overall if you want to have a good slice of life romance i recommend this.

Stand by Me Doraemon
(2014)

Mind blowing
This movie is basically a retake on the series.

The CGI animation was good.

The story was mind blowing

Also the voice acting was outstanding.

If you are into Doraemon you may like this

Omohide poro poro
(1991)

Feels like only yesterday
A twenty-seven-year-old office worker travels to the countryside while reminiscing about her childhood in Tokyo.

The movie itself was decent how they were switching between the flasbacks and the present day. the music was pretty good. The dub was not bad but i with they never took 25 years to dub it.

It's a good family friendly film to watch.

See all reviews
