This week Irina is hosting our random observations (and discussion) about Mars Red. Be sure to hop on over to her blog and check it out. You know how I kept saying that Mars Red is theatrical. Well, I did for like the two first episodes. I looked it up and it’s supposed to be … Continue reading Mars Red Episode 4 – The Kind Vampire
Irina and I discuss the latest happenings on Mars Red which is proving to be an interesting show to discuss. Check out our views on Mars Red Episode 3 and if you're watching, let us know your thoughts on the latest episode.
This week Irina and I are covering ep 2 of Mars Red over at Irina's place so be sure to check it out. We are back with the second episode of one of the more unusual offerings this season: Mars Red. I have a feeling this is the type of show that manages to not … Continue reading Mars Red Episode 2 – The Boys
Shiki is one of those horror anime I return to again and again. Those who aren't the biggest fans of slow and suspenseful stories that ultimately go full blood bath are unlikely to find much here of interest, but for fans of the horror genre and vampire stories, there's a lot to appreciate. Read the full review. First published May 2016.
The Spring 2021 anime season is kicking off and that means Irina and I are getting back together for some episode reviews. Mars Red is the first of the two anime we'll cover together this season and here are our first impressions.
Well, given I'm breaking my own rules here and making a decision after one episode, it is probably pretty obvious what my thoughts on Vlad Love are. If you want to know why I didn't continue be sure to read the full post.
Well, I had watched Awakening so it made sense to do a catch up view of the Noblesse series. Overall, not particularly impressed but there are some highlights here. Be sure to read the full review.
Sirius the Jaeger is actually great fun. We have a group called the Jaegers hunting down vampires and trying to exterminate them, meanwhile the vampires are conspiring with political activists and the like to get some shady and nebulous plot off the ground. It is a great set up and the pre-World War 2 setting really helps to allow some credibility for some of the goings on here.
Now, that isn't to say Castlevania is bad. Because, it actually is quite a fun little romp of a story provided the copious blood and guts being splashed around aren't a problem and the clear sequel bait endings for the surviving cast members doesn't annoy. If this had come out in a solid chunk and I'd binged the 12 episodes altogether, I'd have had an absolute blast...
While this anime isn't exactly going to change the world it was perhaps one of the more fun titles from the Summer Season. If you like a bit of fun and action with vampires, werewolves and other things that go bump in the night and you'll probably find something to enjoy in Phantom in the Twilight.
