Black Butler Season 1 Series Review

Black Butler - Series Review

Black Butler has for a long time been one of my favourite anime. For all the historical inaccuracies and potential plot problems, it remains a series that is very fun to watch and manages a solid and dramatic finale (which makes you wonder why season 2 happened). Read the full review. First posted May 2016.

Tuesday’s Top 5: Top 5 Red-Heads (Female)

Tuesday's Top 5

Here we are with my very first top 5 list. Naturally I chose a topic near and dear to my heart and that is counting down my favourite crimson coloured heroines from anime. Whether they fight with their minds, their emotions, swords or a massive sniper rifle, these girls are tough and are going to … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Top 5 Red-Heads (Female)

Top 5: Anime With Demons or Devils

Tuesday's Top 5

There are a lot of anime that include demons and devils in their cast and I know that a list of 5 can't even begin to cover all the great titles out there. Still, I decided to have a go at listing my 5 favourite anime with demons or devils in them. I did rule … Continue reading Top 5: Anime With Demons or Devils

Top 5 Anime in Historical Settings

Tuesday's Top 5

I'm going to be honest, this list was harder than I first thought and that is because I made the decision early on to not include anime from fantasy historical settings. They had to be real places (or close enough). Now, that doesn't mean my choices are based on historical accuracy, because they definitely aren't, … Continue reading Top 5 Anime in Historical Settings

Embarrassment, Scrapes, Colds, and Other Deadly Things in Anime

Friday's Feature

Life is tough for the average high school anime character. Getting caught in the rain is nearly a death sentence when a dreaded fever will strike and certainly any character who ever had a bout of chuubinyou knows that embarrassment really can kill.

Black Butler Book of Atlantic Review

Black Butler Book of Atlantic

I’m wondering how much they paid in royalties for Titanic for this one? Pride and Prejudice got a zombie version and this one is definitely Titanic with Zombies. Not that I’m complaining. There’s an absolute delight at seeing our favourite characters cutting loose and not taking it all so seriously.

Up Close With Sebastian Michaelis

This week we turn our attention to one hell of a butler. He's a great character and just plain fun to spend time with even if he is only hanging around so that he can eventually eat Ciel's soul.

Black Butler: Book of Circus Series Review: Let’s Go To The Circus and Hang Out With Demons and Reapers

Review: I've previously reviewed Black Butler (loved it) and Black Butler 2 (be gone from my sight). However, I wrote my review of Book of Circus after watching Book of Circus on Crunchyroll and fell in love with Black Butler all over again, which may seem inconsistent as it does a few of the things … Continue reading Black Butler: Book of Circus Series Review: Let’s Go To The Circus and Hang Out With Demons and Reapers

Friday’s Feature: Angels and Demons in Anime

One thing all anime fans know is that if it exists as even a vague idea, somewhere, someone has made an anime about it. Probably more than one someone. So it shouldn't come as any surprise that many stories in anime are built on some of the trappings from the Christian and Catholic church. While … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Angels and Demons in Anime

Friday’s Feature: Let’s Try Something Different and Build A Harem

I'm going to thank Cactus Matt from Anime Q & A for throwing this tag my way. I have never even considered building a harem and so when I was nominated my brain suddenly went a little bit crazy with the possibilities. Then of course I had to think about when I could respond to … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Let’s Try Something Different and Build A Harem
