So what do you get when you take a girl with a sword big enough to make the Rayearth characters jealous, add in a young man with the sort of balls most anime males wish they had, and throw in some critters that like to snack on humans? I'm taking a look at Claymore this week, a series that has set about answering just that question, and is doing a damned nice job of it thus far. It's a surprisingly deep take on a story that might seem, on the face of it, to have been done before, and we're only three episodes in.
As long as I'm on a site updating spree, I thought that I'd add a new review to the mix, my first xBox 360 take. And for that event, I've settled on a Gears of War review that cuts right to the gory innards. Hope you folks are ready for a mauling the likes of which Ash would look at and say... "Groovy." Grab your Torque Bow, check your shotgun's ammo load, and rev up that Lancer's chainsaw bayonet... Welcome back to the Army, soldier.
I've added a review on the PC version of Prey for your reading pleasure. Hope you remembered your splash guard, as you join Tommy on his trip through an alien slaughterhouse in his quest to save his girlfriend and attempt to reach Scarface levels of foul language. This isn't for kids folks, but read on for more of my thoughts on the FPS from Human Head Studios.
Don't be afraid to discuss it too! CLOSED
Well, here they are, the final reviews from "Where No Anime Goes Unpunished." We have for you, Rozen Maiden Season 1, Koihime OVA 1 and 2, Maburaho, DearS, Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan, and Akane (DIE YOU F'D UP ANIME, DIE!)Maniax.
Yes, I'm working on my anger issues, and my therapist says I'm coming along fine. Sure he did it at gun point, but he did say it.
I'll be closing "Where No Anime Goes Unpunished" formally, after New Years. As with the others I moved from there, I won't create any threads for them, due to their ages and such, but if you, our loyal readers wish to, again, we'll be more than happy to jump in.
Damn, we're just rocking on with the updates today!
Depending on how this goes, I'll either have the move complete by tomorrow...or after the beginning of next year. Still in any event, I've uploaded four of the reviews for your viewing pleasure: Scrapped Princess, Tenjho Tenge, Transformers: Armada, and Transformers: Energon.
I've added a new review for Ghost Hunt, the new TV series based on the manga of the same name by Shiho Inada. Join Mai and Naru as they look for answers in the world of the paranormal with the help of other exorcists of varying faiths and religions. It's a fun series folks, take a look at the review to see if its something you'd like.
There's a discussion thread all setup here, too. CLOSED
*looks at the title of this article...* Well, sort of. We're not dead yet folks, barring accident, incident, personal crisis, work, and school work, we're still alive and somewhat kicking. Personally, I'm going for being raised as a Lich/Demon/Sith Lord hybrid. Today's little offering is brought to you by the letters E, G, and L as well as the numbers 6 and 9......
Alright folks, here's a new review that's been waiting in the wings; it's it's Utawarerumono, based on the Tactical RPG Eroge of the same name. Join Hakuro and his friends in what I think stands of great chance of becoming this generation's classic fantasy anime. I'll let my review speak for itself on what I think, so enjoy.
As always, you can find a conversation thread on the forums as well. CLOSED
Let it never be said, dear readers, we don't go all out! I am sicker than a terrier dog after sucking down a ton of chocolate, and yet...here is a review for Zero no Tsukaima. It's a horribly compressed anime, that couldn't quite make itself bad regardless of what was done...and what wasn't done to it, heh.
If someone could make the comments thread for me, I'll give you...well, you probably don't want what I'd have to give you at this point, but I'd be really appreciative, heh. CLOSED
