Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory Episode 2: The Weight of The Drama Is Real

Tessa takes a shot, Mithril is under heavy attack, and Sousuke and Chidori are still on the run. This anime knows how to make an entrance back onto the scene. Full Metal Panic has always been an anime series that has managed to balance really gripping drama with the sillier comedy aspects it presents, but … Continue reading Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory Episode 2: The Weight of The Drama Is Real

Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory First Impressions

Despite still not actually writing my reviews of the original Full Metal Panic series (first season, second raid and fumoffu), I'm a huge fan of this franchise and am thrilled it is back. So how does this first episode start off the new anime? There was something very nostalgic about this first episode of Invisible … Continue reading Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory First Impressions

Friday’s Feature: Discussing Sequels, Prequels and Spin-Offs

When it came to movies, I was always wary of sequels growing up. It was more or less universally accepted that the sequel would be weaker than the original with a few exceptions (which of course proved the rule). I was less aware of prequels until the Star Wars franchise essentially hacked the heart out … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Discussing Sequels, Prequels and Spin-Offs

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime With Action

Alright, I've looked at romantic anime before but this time I'm shifting my focus to action. It is really hard to get a definitive classification on whether something is action or not. Does one fight sequence really make for action? And how do you compare action used for comedy with gritty realistic fight sequences, and … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime With Action

Friday’s Feature: Anime Characters in Summer

Two days from Christmas and those of us in the land of Aus are dying from excessive waves of heat and humidity when we aren't having our roofs blown off by summer storms. Seems odd that I'm still reviewing the Autumn 2016 anime season while summer is in full swing but even odder that we're … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Anime Characters in Summer

Tuesday’s Top 5 – Characters with Blue Hair (Female)

My very first Top 5 list featured our fiery red headed females, so now it's time for the characters with blue hair. I will eventually run out of hair colours but I'll space them out given there are so many other topics to cover. Next week I will cover the anime guys and that's a … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5 – Characters with Blue Hair (Female)

Friday’s Feature – Emotional Connections in Mecha Anime

I often point out I have a love-hate relationship with the Gundam franchise in general. Some series I love and others I really hate and can't get into at all. I kind of have that same relationship with most Mecha anime. Some I get right into and others, even though the storyline is ostensibly the … Continue reading Friday’s Feature – Emotional Connections in Mecha Anime
