Today we have what is an oddity of anime story telling in that despite the best efforts of the production staff to completely screw it up, the story and characters shine through proving how powerful the source material must have been. So without further ado, may I present to you: Fate: Stay/Night.
This week it's a double dose look at anime, with the Witchblade preview and the Karin review. Witchblade is an all-new anime retelling of the popular American comic book series of the same name, produced by GONZO. Karin tells the tale of an embarrassed young girl trying to deal with the meanings of happiness and vampirism. Might wanna wear a splash guard folks, the blood's hard to scrub out.
Whilst walking through Fanime bright and cheery, I stumbled across a fangirl lovely and pretty. Her boyfriend hovered o'er her dark and blearly, from the bounds of hell, did he seem quite leary, of the fanboy attention she did receive. Pausing not to wonder why my meter is now askew, epiphany struck like morning dew. So here are my words to give it definition; dear brave souls, we have become transcendant in our mission.
Now that the site upgrades are completed, I've added my first Dragon's Den column article, on the recent Eroge Anime trend that has been seen over the last six years. Bear in mind that much of this is my own opinion, much the same as David's Rantings of a Demented Little Man are his, but I've tried to be as factual as possible in order to give you a good picture of the trend. Enjoy!
This week it's Shuffle! in the spotlight, as I take a look at the TV series by Navel & Omegavision. A great little romp of a story, despite some pretty basic Harem beginnings, take a look at the review to see why I think it's well worth a shot.
This week it's a look at the Christmas story Itsudatte My Santa, based on the manga of the same name by Ken Akamatsu. Be warned - the reindeer bite.
