Granbelm Episode 5 – This. Is. GRANBELM!

Guys! that was actually the last line of the episode! I'm not kidding. Just like in 300! Humm, ok maybe some of you didn't get that reference. It's an old movie. You can probably google it... In short, it's an over stylized and ultra violent ode to classic ideas of masculinity and a lot of fun when you're in that type of mood. Now, I'm not implying that Granbelm and 300 are basically the same thing. But that is what Granbelm said!

Granbelm Episode 4 – A Ministering Angel Shall My Sister Be

Granbelm is such a riddle of a show. There's not that many people talking about it so I'm not getting the community's pulse on this series.

Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka Episode 12 Review - Don't expect an ending or even a satisfying last ditch battle. This is more a conglomerate of character moments, set up for future plot lines, and random flash backs that just kind of splatter there way across the screen for twenty minutes before we get a narration that more or less tells us the story is no where near finished.
