Psychic Detective Yakumo reviewed

We have to have something for our meeting closest before Halloween. A person with a demon eye who helps ghosts of murdered  children bring their killer to justice… how heart warning can that be? No?  I must admit a horror anime which is makes people feel good is quite strange. Still entertaining.


Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt

Oh MY Gaimax!!! Shock Rock, Shock Radio and now Shock Anime? With humour that is literally not just down the toilet but the first half is about a toilet ghost monster. Poo, puke other vile references with even live action explosions of villains. Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt sets a new low for animation. Maybe we should not export our animation over to Japan with this twisted take on our own garbage.

Don’t take my word. See what everyone else is saying about Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt.

First View – Samurai Girls

Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls

Samurai Girls reviewed

Once again Hobby Japan brings another of it’s series of poorly clad characters to life but having a storyline to bring to life would have been better. See what our band of reviewers thought of Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls.

First View – Break Blade

Break Blade reviewed

Finally a mecha anime which makes this genre shinny and new. Where the hero of the story is the only one without super or magical powers and personal conflict and drama balances without the ‘mechs’ being the centerpoint of the story.  Se what our members thoughts of Break Blade.

First look – Black Rock Shooter OVA

Black Rock Shooter OVA

Black Rock Shooter OVA

What I thought would be an awesome OVA turned into a poorly plotted 50 minutes of drama which fails to connect the dots. Sadly the music video that was put out by the creator was more enjoyable and made more sense. Don’t take my word for it, see what our members thought of Black Rock Shooter OVA.

First View – Cat Shit One

Cat Shit One

Cat Shit One

Adapted from the manga, Apocalypse Meow, this story takes place years after Vietnam with the same characters from the manga.  Impressive computer animation but hardly could be called a series with only one episode. Read what our member thought of Cat Shit One.

First View – Mitsudomoe


Mitsudomoe reviewed

What could be any teacher’s worst nightmare, triple trouble with three sisters in one comedy.  Each with their own personalities and their own way of causing mayhem in this twisted anime.  Read what our trio of reviewers thought of Mitsudomoe.


H.O.T.D reviewed

Romero would be proud of this show … well maybe not of the fan service.  High School of the Dead, the manga hits the screen and it doesn’t disappoint or try to explain too much in the first episode. You’re only given glimpses of the other players in this drama without having to setup their life story to this point.  It centers on 3 main characters… and their backgrounds are only briefly touch on before all hell breaks loose.

Still if you’re a zombie fan, this is a MUST watch show, Highschool of the Dead.

Sekirei: Pure Engagement

Seikirei: Pure Engagement reviewed

The first show of the new season and all we could find is a lack of story telling and ability to connect the previous series to the new.  Still the show managed to serve up a fine helping of fan service and comedy. Just not enough to keep some of our members watching.  Check it out for yourself and tell us what you think of Seikirei: Pure Engagement here or on facebook.

Comedy about the perfect girl, a shy boy and obsession over something she knows nothing about. We put B Gata H Kei to the viewing test.
