What Makes a Good Anime Adaptation of a Manga?

It would be an understatement to say that anime producers have been making Anime adaptations for a while. Now I’m not a historian, but I think they’ve been doing it pretty much since the dawn of Anime. And why not? We all love to see our favourite characters running about doing all the things they do but in motion. And the great thing about adaptations is that they get people who hadn’t even heard of the original work becoming major fans. Anyone read Death Note way before they’d even heard of the anime? And what about Dragonball Z?

Akiba's Trip 2

Akiba’s Trip 2 Review for PSVita

It’s been a few years since the release of Akiba’s Trip on the PSP in 2011, and after a somewhat short wait, a sequel for PSVita and PS3 named ‘Akiba’s Trip 2’ finally got a release in November. Yet after a good months of ripping the clothes off vampires and conquering female heroines, is this game worthy enough to justify a purchase? (This review is spoiler free)

First Impressions: Red Data Girl

The new anime Red data girl aired 4 episodes already and so far its not looking too bad. The character designs are very good but they don’t stand out amongst the new Anime’s of the spring season. Despite that they are still very good. The character designs were done by Minako Shiba. The animation quality of the show is surprisingly great and it’s transitions are excellent when changing scenes. Unfortunately i haven’t had the pleasure of watching it in high definition so my comments on the show’s look is quite limited.

Series of the Week 6: Sword Art Online

Its not hard to admit but most Anime fans are Gamer’s, we love Game’s some of us love Game’s enough to fantasize about living inside them take Pokemon as a prime example of this, most people who play Pokemon think about what it would be like to live inside that world, Sword Art Online takes people who think like this and go’s on an adventure with them….

Series of the Week 3: Steins;Gate

Series of the Week 3: Steins;Gate

Time travel is one of if not the most difficult things to write about, and I don’t mean the kind of time travel where you use it to get to point A to point B that is just a way to advance a story take Doctor Who as a prime example of this, he takes his companions back in time they do fun stuff there then they go back to the future and nothing has changed. Steins;Gate however tells an intricate story where every little decision with the use of time travel has massive effects on the timeline and everything/everyone in it. take for example what would happen if you told your mother to eat more vegetables when she was pregnant with you, would that effect you? Her? Time? in Steins;Gate that question is asked and answered in the most mind boggling and brilliant ways possible.

The Best Anime of 2012

The Best Anime of 2012

As the end of the year is approaching, let’s just wish all have a great holiday and be thankful that we are still here, after the Armageddon. We had some really great series this year and I know I always say that. Some Kyoto Animations are probably the winners of the year and we cannot fail to mention few of them like Hyouka and Chuunibyou.
