“A sound soul dwells within a sound mind, and a sound body.” It sounds like the mantra of some Zen teaching, but it’s the opening lines of an anime that takes you for a thrilling fantasy ride. My final review for the year is a one-of-a-kind anime series.
Because the internet doesn’t have nearly enough opinions about Sword Art Online, I’ve done you all a favor and thrown my hat in as well. But seriously, above all the flame wars, there is always something to be said about this franchise.
A plot to kill a young prince, a spear wielding bodyguard who vows to protect him, and the fabled rebirth of a spirit from the egg inside him. A prince hosting an egg might sound strange, but male seahorses carry their eggs too, you know.
Apologies to anyone confused about the title, as of this writing I am still alive. Today we follow the story of a hard working god who dreams of having the most followers on Wordpre er.. at his shrine. But really, if you haven’t hit the follow button yet what are you waiting for?
If you knew someone was dangerous, would you stop them? If someone you care for is guilty, can you condemn them? In today’s review I look at a world where you no longer need to think about right or wrong, and anyone that might hurt you is put away before they can.
Today I take a non-stop thrill ride wrought with danger, wide scale violence, and unchecked emotion. No, I’m not going clothes shopping… I’m reviewing anime!
Today I take a journey through a mystical world of dungeons and djinns, where the world is guided by fate and raging against it attracts little black butterflies. Wait, what?
Today I review the poorly received sequel to the much loved Black Butler. As maligned as this series is, I was challenged to defend my opinion of it. Day into night, sugar into salt, living to dead, and a hated show into a thought provoking review.
Today it’s ghouls, goblins, and… well, actually just ghouls. What does this weekend otaku think about one man’s struggle to be both human and ghoul? What about one studio’s decision to adapt a manga with original content?
