In my first full review in nearly a year, I look at another film from director Keiichi Hara. Miss Hokusai is no Shin-chan, but she might be just as brash.
How “I” Learned to See Color – A Colorful (movie) Review
According to several religious traditions, reincarnation isn’t so much about what you want, but what you deserve. It might be tempting to curse your lot in life but ensuring a better tomorrow depends entirely on how you live today.
I’ve Got 99 Souls but a Witch ain’t One – A Soul Eater Review
“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.
Which came first, the Spirit or the Egg? – A Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit review
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.

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.
