And so for a review that's been bugging me to be written for awhile (and ironically after I finish Dragon Age Inquisition), we have the review for the good yet deeply flawed game Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.
I've got to do more of these. There are so many series that deserve a review...or a roasting, all things depending. In any event, here's a review of the dark lord at work anime, Yūsha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shūshoku o Ketsui Shimashita, or I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job. Helluva mouthful there. In what has seemingly become its own genre, we follow the trials and tribulations of the workers of the magical electronics store, Leon, in a post war economy, where everyone is more than they seem, and all are trying to do the best they can in a situation that could be far worse for them. Check out more in the review!
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.
I really need to do more of these. They don't take THAT long, after all...at least not like before when I was writing novels for a review. In any event, hopefully I can do at least one a week before I go on vacation, we have for your viewing pleasure, Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero. In this we find the tale of debauchery played straight and the cries of 2chan as their waifu grabbing breaks under the tender mercies of inherent logic.
Well, perhaps not quite like that, but read on, if you want to get the jist of where I'm coming from.
As I slog through the various bits of AX media (15,000+ pics! This is not going to be quick!) I find I feel the need to review some anime. Under the gun this time is the Maoyū Maō Yūsha anime. This one just barely escapes the executioner's axe, but I'll be damned if it doesn't get some sort of drubbing for the ball dropping its guilty of. Read on, to see what I mean.
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.
I find myself wishing to review it because while the director and production staff tried to make it more of the same...you know, typical spineless wuse surrounded by hot chicks, the heart and soul of the original story shown through and you see so very much more than that, and more...you DON'T see the spineless wuse, despite their concerted efforts (though he is a twitchy fucker in the anime).
So check out the review, and after you're done hit the link at the bottom of the review if you want to see the story continued.
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.
Los Angeles… City of glamour dreams and dirty alleys. Every dame’s a rising starlet, and there’s a story in every empty booze bottle. The streets of L.A. Noire are mean and unforgiving, and it’s up to newly minted detective Cole Phelps to bring the Sword of Justice down on the necks of the criminals and gangsters that rule the streets. The question is, though, who can you trust, when half the department’s on the pad, and the other half’s burnt out after too long seeing justice gone undone? Take a look at the review, and maybe you’ll find the clues you need to find out…
