Why so sad emo ninja? Nabari no Ou is an anime series that seems to have its heart set on reaching out to an audience going through that weird coming of age drama that we all go through. However, it doesn’t seem to devote itself to the same cliché concepts we’ve seen time and time […]

Darker Than Black is Back. Darker Than Black is easily one of my favorite anime of all time, which is why I was so excited to finally get my hands on the second season known as Darker Than Black: Gemini of the Meteor. The follow up features the return of Tensai Okamura and Bones animation […]

Even the Devil has a hard time with minimum wage. It’s been a long time since I’ve had as much fun as I did watching The Devil Is a Part-Timer!. Let me just say that the series is an absolute delight, and one that I whole heartedly plan to revisit in the future. After all, […]

Apparently Japanese teenagers are terrifying. Not going to lie, I really wanted Code: Breaker to be good from the start. After all, it’s about High School students with special powers who work as assassins for a mysterious branch of the government. Sounds pretty spiffy, right? Well, to a certain degree it is kind of neat. […]

Are you a criminal if you don’t commit a crime? What if you knew someone was going to commit a crime before it happened? Sound like Minority Report? Well it’s not: I’m talking about Psycho-Pass. True, it sounds like something we’ve all heard of before, but Psycho-Pass takes the concept a step further and focuses […]

And you thought your dad was a jerk. Life can be pretty rough if you’re the son on the devil. At least, that’s the premise of Blue Exorcist. Luckily for humanity, though, the devil’s kid, Rin, is much more interested in socking his old man in the face rather than joining him. So Rin goes […]

Man faces a very big problem. I decided to give the anime Attack on Titan a shot because the internet was going insane over it. Turns out there was good reason, because it’s one of the most unique concepts I’ve seen in years (which is pretty impressive considering how many “weird” anime there are out […]

There’s the family you’re born with, and then there’s the family that finds you. From Satoshi Kon, the man who brought us Paprika and Paranoia Agent and the head script writer of Cowboy Bebop comes something completely different in Tokyo Grandfathers. Despite the fact that it’s a far cry from anything the men have worked […]

Where’s the beef? Almost a decade ago, the short computer-generated film Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek was released at a number of international film festivals, in addition to receiving a slot on Cartoon Network. Though it has a relatively short run time (25 minutes), it makes up for its length with its unique visual style, most […]

Wait… History can be fun? There have been a number of times during my years of watching anime where I’ve had to hit the pause button and ask myself, “What the hell am I watching?” Hetalia: Axis Powers has taken the cake so far, but hardly in a bad way. I’m not sure if I’m […]

A good old-fashioned Superman teamup.

This film follows the story of Billy Batson (Zach Callison) and his transformation into Captain Marvel. We start off slow, with some of the basics. We have a young, idealistic character going through his life the best he can. He’s an orphan. He’s poor. He’s bullied. But he always tries to lead a good life. And then BOOM! We get Black Adam (Arnold Vosloo) to come in and try to ruin the kid’s day. What a jerk. But this being a Superman cartoon, we get some good fight scenes. That’s fun right? The animation here is good, but that’s it. There’s nothing that stands out or separates this from other super hero animated films. Even the action is the standard throw big stuff at each other, punching, and some magic vs. heat vision. There’s nothing wrong with that, but there’s nothing great either.

It packs a punch. For those of you who don’t know, Geoff Jones is one of the greatest comic book writers working today, which is why it was so exciting to hear that his story arch Superman: Brainiac was being adapted into an animated film. DC has a habit of bringing it’s go to guys […]
