Recently there’s a huge rash of road rage homocides. Homocides in the Bay Area in general are up but road rage is nothing something you hear often. Is it because the media is suddenly covering and labeling them road rage? Homocide is homocide, road rage is just an excuse. Someone better check the alignment of the planets and the moons!
No matter how much I dislike this anime, I already commit myself into it. I will watch it ’til the end. In this episode, Raikou tells his side of the story of what happened that bloody night, five years ago. Somewhat interesting (since some of us wanted to know) and with the same copy and paste action from last episode sprinkled on. Spoilers ahead. Read more
After my stint with World of Warcraft, I craved for another MMO to play but not pay for it. So I searched the internets and found out there’s tons of free MMOs around. But of course there’s a huge line drawn across the free stuff and the pay stuff. So far I found two MMOs, that I found were playable to my standards. Read more
I rarely write my two cents about movies but I had to with Jumper. When I first saw the trailers on tv, I said to myself, “Hey this looks cool! “. There’s two things I didn’t know at the time I said this: Hayden Christensen is in it and the actual movie really freaking blows. Read more
If you catch the manga, it’s getting close with the tv series. Actually vice versa. But anyway, the lame fillers continue. Like all fillers, they felt the need to add these really stupid villain characters. They are arrogant and are completely oblivious to the AWESOME fighting powers of our protagonists. As usual they get completely owned by them and they stand there wondering why. Idiots. All of these stupid villains need some kind of gimmick powers or weapon to boost their shitty fighting skills and to inflate their egos.
I have been secretly watching this, without ever discussing til now. It is over, with 12 episodes. I had mixed impressions when I saw the first episode but as I watched more, the more I loved this damn anime. Read on. Read more
I piled on three chapters, and haven’t watched them till tonight. The show is starting to get SLIGHTLY better but it really shoots itself in the foot with this shounen ai and bizarre as shit gender bending themes. With this and the current cliche “monster of the day” format, it seriously does not mesh well. Read more
Lately I have been lambasting all of these animes I gripe about. But for some reason, it’s harder to praise an anime as great as Xxxholic : Kei. This is the sequel to the first Xxxholic was great in their own right. We get some eerie episodes as usual. Yuuko is still spinning her tales about humanity and morality. It’s still on top of my list of Spring 2008 animes.
I still find this anime boring and utterly slow. Every aspect of Nabari no Ou is uninteresting. The characters and the story is something you can describe in four sentences. I remember before the premiere, it talked about ninjas. But where the hell are the ninjas? Read more
