Hmm...how to describe GATE. Basically, it's how many of us wish we could enter a fantasy world...armed to the teeth with modern weapons so we can just shoot the son of a bitch and hear the lamentations of their women. There's more to it than that, and despite some pretty glaring flaws, I found it to be pretty entertaining. Still, for the full analysis, check out the review, if you want to know what I'm really talking about. Also, a goth loli demigoddess who gets off on the pain, suffering, and death of her enemies! Enjoy!
I really need to do more of these. Regardless, here is a review for action packed hentai series (and you who've seen this know perfectly well it's H), The Testament of Sister New Devil. Overall not a bad series, but it does cross a line that might not appeal to all. That said, it was pretty fun. Season 2 is coming out next month, so if you're thinking about getting caught up, check out the review and see if it may be your thing or not. Enjoy!
After a few weeks of procrastination, we finally have the Fanime 2014 Report up. What to say about this year? A lot better than last year, let me tell you. Though I think we need a lot more participation from our fellow journalists than simply walking around and taking pictures, like providing some feedback and participating a bit more in the events other than just showing up thinking everything will be ready for whatever...we need to get in there and take a bit more of a part of production so we can all do our jobs better and not step on each other's toes. Honestly, though, that's more of a personal anecdote. Read on to see more about what the convention was about and how well they did this year.
Looking for anime that doesn't feed the disease is becoming akin to finding a politician that is not corrupt. To satisfy this desire, I find myself looking at anime I didn't get to the first time around, and here we wind up with Ixion Saga DT; one that will go down in infamy as setting a new bar for the wrongest of the wrong parodies out there which is what this review will be about.
We're not dead, but we're getting there. In case you're wondering, much of our efforts have been spent on getting the Dragon's Anime Youtube channel populated with all our movies from previous years. We didn't realize how daunting a task this was until we started, and then realized we had a ton of videos we've shot over the years, and we were going to need to reencode them all with modern hardware, filters, and in HD where possible. Still, we're chugging away, as you can see from the shear amount we've got so far. Once the main events are done, I'll be able to work on the snippets of events we have here and there as well. Gensao, for example, has provided me with loads of little moments in time that are a real treat to watch, and I'll share them with you at earliest opportunity.
In the mean time, we have a new review for the game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. In a nutshell, if you liked the first one, or just like good third person shooters...you'll love this.
From each and every one of us here at Dragon's Anime we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Let's all hope it continues to be such for the foreseeable future.
And a little over a month later, I'm finally getting this report up. Yes, I appear to be slipping once again. I require a mistress to keep me in line. Tall(er), thin, good looking and looks good in leather and high heels, and a willingness to use said heels on my spine...that sort of thing. Some of the previous is negotiable. Doesn't have to be taller than me, for example. Oh right, the report, I'm getting to that. You can find it here on Dragon's Anime, along with various other odd bits that define what insanity is and is a great place to meet the old one of your dreams. I'm also lying about some of that. Or am I? Can't really tell anymore, it's all getting hazy and indistinct. Like reality itself is coming undone.
In that mini report you'll find movies, pictures, and some general anecdotes from what is a pretty decent little convention. Perhaps also a succubus to devour your soul, should you prove fortunate. In any event, have fun, and try not to poke the Platinum Dragon. He's cranky when he wakes up. >_>
What's this? I have the report up this early? Again? Am I becoming reliable? Next thing you'll probably be wondering is where the movies are, right? Well...they're actually done, but I need to upload them and such, heh. Still, the report. It's there, and what can I say about the convention? F'n weird is what I can say about it. Perhaps it's a good idea we basically drank the whole time, and I do mean that, we were drinking the whole damn time. I'm reminded of shore leave in the Navy. Come to think of it, in terms of just how much I drank this convention...yeah, that was on par with a typical shore leave without the nightly finale of getting totally hammered.
So what are you waiting for? Check it out and see all the weirdness. If you were there, you can probably sympathize with some of what I noted in that report, I expect. Enjoy!
What? You thought I was just going to wait 'til right before AX? Or even some months after? You take me for that sort of procrastinator?
Yeah, I guess I am one of those actually. But not today, Galvatron! Oh no, for once, I have all my stuff done three days after con! That's right, it's all done! Well...I'll have the movies up in a bit, but they're all transcoded! Praise me! Praise me!
Yeah, okay, I didn't expect that to actually work either. Oh right, you wanted the pics, well here you go, you can find them here on TFA Cosplay. You're probably looking for the report this news item mentioned. Yeah, I can provide that too! I'll be getting the movies up later tonight, so stay tuned for more!
And for your viewing pleasure, a bit of guilty pleasure in the smaller reviews of the ecchi anime series Ladies vs. Butlers and the honestly funny bit of trolling commedy called Mayo Chiki!
These series really aren't much in the way of substance, hence the combined and shortened reviews, but are still quite entertaining and good for a look through if you don't really want to think about anything too hard. But check out the review if you need further convincing, just leave your sanity at the door.
meaning to warn people away do a review on Jyu-Oh-Sei, or Planet of the Beast King, for quite some time now. If I felt any real duty to the whole of humanity (outside of conquering it...oh wait, did I say that out loud?) I'd probably say that it was my obligation to inform people before they considered watching it that they were never going to get those six hours back. With its recent introduction to Netflix, many more are going to need this warning. If you don't believe me, click that link in the first paragraph and know what I suffered through, and make your decision accordingly.
As for me, I need another beer after the pure Hell I suffered through.
