Recently, it seems that there are more and more live action adaptations of popular anime and manga franchises than before. This shouldn’t really be that surprising as it has been proven that we do now have the technology to be able to pull these things off. Unfortunately, most live action adaptations haven’t really done that well, with the exception of the live action adaptation of … Continue reading Movie Review: Fullmetal Alchemist (Live Action) (Spoilers!)

“RWBY’s” first volume definitely showed how promising the show could be despite a few hiccups when it came to its animation. Aside from that, the world and characters that Monty Oum created for Rooster Teeth was one that had a rich lore, which was often inspired by Western legends and fairytales. It introduced viewers to the world of Remnant, to Teams RWBY and JNPR, but … Continue reading Animation Break: RWBY Vol. 2 Review (Spoilers!)
Ever since discovering “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” and”The Lizzie Bennet Diaries”, I have had a soft spot in my heart for web series, even though I haven’t really reviewed them that much on my blog (maybe one day, I will). However, after coming across this American style anime web series called “RWBY” (pronounced as ‘ruby’), I just knew I had to cover it as it … Continue reading Animation Break: RWBY Volume I Review (Spoilers!)
Welcome to the very first “Animation Break”! Well, technically, the first “Animation Breaks” started with me reviewing Mamoru Hosoda’s films, namely “Summer Wars”, “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time”, and “The Boy and the Beast”. I still have his “Wolf Children” to review, but I decided to go ahead first with taking a look at the works of another name that I have heard being … Continue reading Animation Break: Makoto Shinkai’s 5 cm Per Second (Spoilers!)
I love Studio Ghibli films, but for some reason, I tend to gravitate towards the work of Mamoru Hosoda more often. As of this moment, “The Boy and the Beast” is the third film of his that I’ve seen, which means I only have “Wolf Children” left to watch, as I don’t really watch “Digimon” or “One Piece”, as his two other films are films … Continue reading Movie Review: The Boy and the Beast (Spoilers)
By now, it is becoming quite obvious that I am a fan of Mamoru Hosoda’s work, as both “Summer Wars” and “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time” are in my list of favorite anime movies of all time. I was originally not going to write about “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time”, but decided to do so anyway because I’m already on a Mamoru Hosoda … Continue reading Movie Review: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Spoilers)
Everyone has favorite movies, books or television show episodes that they could watch over and over again, especially when the mood strikes them. For me, this would be my Sherlock Holmes stories, my favorite episodes and specials of “Doctor Who”, and “Summer Wars”, an anime film that I never fail to watch every single year. I was introduced to anime and manga pretty late in … Continue reading Movie Review: Summer Wars (Spoilers)
Finally, it’s that time of year again, when everyone takes a step back in order to reflect on the year that was, and to look forward to the year that will come. This year, we lost several great legends and luminaries in the entertainment industry, but among all of them, the ones that hit me the hardest were Alan Rickman’s and Carrie Fisher’s passing. Rickman, … Continue reading Update Post: Goodbye 2016, Here’s To 2017!
