First View – Blue Exorcist

Blue Exorcist reviewed

As one member put it, “If Good Omens were to be made into an anime…”  Wonderfully  animated and well paced story.  Blue Exorcist is destined to be up there with the likes of Bleach or D.Grayman.

First View – Dragon Crisis!

Dragon Crisis! reviewed

We tried out some new hardware to watch shows which glitch a bit. In spite of this, we had a good time with a member’s Atari 2600 console and crowd favorite game, Medival Mayhem. We watched Dragon Crisis. While it’s a good show, most thought you have to watch more to get an idea of what’s going on.

We ran a little too late to play Phantasy Star on the Gamecube but maybe next time.

First View – Otome Youkai Zakuro

Otome Youkai Zakuro reviewed

Who could be worse than having to co-exist with half-demon girls with fox ears? Having to put up with prejudice of being different? Historical side step into romantic comedy, Otome Youkai Zakuro.

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 – Angel Beats!

Angel Beats! Review

The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi meets the After Life … with guns. Lots of guns. Funny yet serious. See what our members thought of Angel Beats!

Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou

Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou review

Slapstick humor with panty shots. That pretty well sums up Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou. What can a wannabe saint that ends up finding himself being billed as the next Demon Lord to do?  Obviously to the brunt of attacks and panty shots.  Given the number of hits on the wiki page, this one going to be a hit even with so much a miss.
