Weathering With You – Josh’s Review

I love my brother, but I chose the wrong companion to join me for this film. Weathering With You is a beautiful love story that is certain to induce a lot of snuggling with your significant other. My only dilemma… finding a significant other. Anyway you’re not here to read about my love life, so let’s talk about the movie.  After the success of 2016’s Your Name, Makoto Shinkai has returned w...

Weathering With You – Andrea’s review

I teared up at least twice watching this film. It was an emotional roller coaster and it was a great one! I was so excited to watch this movie and it did not disappoint. But expected right? I mean it is from the creators of Your Name (Kimi no Na Wa).   Weathering with You is a bit darker than Your Name and there are a lot of moments where I was holding my breath, not knowing what was going to...

The Ancient Magus’ Bride – Part Two

We’re back into the ...

The Ancient Magus’ Bride

She must learn to wield her powers, while Elias must learn what it means to be human. Unaware of what lies ahead, he decides to make her his apprentice and future bride.

Sailor Moon S – The Movie

Oh the nostalgia! I was giggling while watching the opening credits – and they aren’t even that funny. It was the excitement I felt knowing I was about to watch a Sailor Moon movie! I wish my excitement had lasted… I know writing this review will disappoint the younger Andrea of days gone by, but it really lacked the plot line and character development that I have come to expect ...

Ghost in the Shell – Double Features

If you liked the 2017 Scarlet Johansson-led live action adaptation, or anything futuristic and cyberpunk in general, then there’s a good chance you may enjoy the original Ghost in the Shell anime movie and its sequel Innocence just as much, or more. Understandably, there will always be those who would prefer the original source material over the live action movie, and vice versa. Personally, I am ...

Puella Magi Madoka Magika

Have you ever had someone bake you a cake? Perhaps for your birthday, it’s beautifully decorated, looks delicious and smells lovely. Then suddenly a hand burst out of your delicious baked treat, pulls out your intestines, tosses them against the wall and says, “Look, art!” What’s that I hear you saying? You’ve never had this odd experience? That’s okay, neither have I. But I’m sure I h...

Tanaka-kun is Always Listless (and soon you will be too)

The best shows are the ones that inspire you. Great anime inspire you to join a volleyball team, start ice skating, or get into competitive card games. Tanaka-kun is Always Listless inspires you to pursue your laziness with a passion. Meet Tanaka. He’s a normal boy with normal friends, going to a normal high school filled with normal people. Usually anime is about the abnormal, but the only ...

ClassicaLoid – The reason I’m breaking up with anime

Anime, we need talk. It’s not me, it’s you. Look, we’ve had some great times! Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note, Kill La Kill these are all highlights of our relationship. You’ve given me unimaginable adventure, epic battles and laugh out loud moments. You’ve been a constant companion, and you’ve even taught me a few things along the way. But things have changed. I know you’re strange, and that’s no...

Fairy Tail

So Fairy Tail has been around long enough that most anime fans already have strong opinions towards this colossal series. There are two extreme camps, either you love it or you hate it. Personally I love it, and before recently re-watching the series on Blu-ray I would have recommend it in a heartbeat.  However now I’m a little worried and I’ve begun second guessing myself. Am I more willing than ...

Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms

Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms is a beautiful telling of the bond between mother and child, set in a fantasy medieval world, where legends such as dragons still exist but are dying out. The plot revolves around Maquia, a young Iorph (a clan that becomes immortal in their mid-teens) and Ariel, a mortal baby that Maquia finds and adopts. If you enjoy anime films that tell an emotional story...

K: Missing Kings

What do K Project, Yolanda from Pulp Fiction, and the Fonz all have in common? Answer: They’re cool. Real cool. Damn cool. This is a show that is badass and is very aware of it. Here are characters who are incredibly powerful and dangerous, yet quietly spoken with leather jackets and denim jeans. Here are young guys with beanies, skateboards and baseball bats. Large guys in hoodies and designer su...
