Vexille
Vexille
Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

VexilleVexille may be too complex a film to explain. And we suggest that you do some homework before watching it, as the issues it addresses are nothing short of mind-blowing. This is high-concept sci-fi action thriller that probes intriguing questions about the nature of what it is to be human, and stunningly, is incredibly critical of Japan, the current state of affairs, and makes (perhaps) an interesting anology about robotics, stem-cell research, how far we're willing to go to be immortal, and how humanity sows the seeds of its own destruction.

Blood+
Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

Blood+Blood+ is aptly named, because there is plenty of it. It's like blood on high octane gas. If you remember the truly groundbreaking, visual orgy that was the 45-minute OVA "Blood The Last Vampire", then be aware that this series, Blood Plus, is meant to be a continuation of the events that unfolded there, although it seems as if the series has nothing to do with the OVA, except that there's a sword-wielding chick and nasty, evil, blood-sucking monsters, as well as copious amounts of bright red cel-paint splattered all over the screen. Blood+ follows the horrific exploits of unwitting vampire exterminator and amnesiac Saya as she struggles to recover her past and escape her future. Read More...

Case Closed Season 1 Box Set
Case Closed
Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

Case ClosedOne of the wonderful things about anime is that it seems to have a show about just about everything -- it's not just giant robots and space battles. And many of these franchises are hugely successful, which brings us to Case Closed. Known in Japan as "Detective Conan" (not to be confused with Miyazaki's "Future Boy Conan"), this anime series has over 500 episodes and 12 movies to it's credit, while the manga has been running continuously since 1994 and shows no sign of stopping. Talk about popular! Read More...

Batman: Gotham Knight
Batman: Gotham Knight
Animation DVD Review
by Brian Cirulnick

American Animated FilmsVery much like the groundbreaking "The Animatrix", Batman: Gotham Knight is a series of six interlocking animated segments that take place in the "Batman Universe", and is meant to tie in with the live action films "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight".

And very much like The Animatrix, this DVD is all anime, all the time. No expense was spared to make this one of the best-looking Batman animated films *ever* (seriously, the production value and look of this is jaw-droppingly astounding). In each segment, the Japanese director was free to stylize Batman as he saw fit, so you are treated to a wide array of anime interpretations of the venerable Dark Knight. Read More...

Dragonball Z Burst Limit
Dragonball Z Burst Limit
for Xbox360 & PS3

Anime Videogame Review by Brian Cirulnick

DragonballWith each new generation of console, these games get closer and closer to looking like you're playing the actual show. At this point, the High-Def capabilities of the Xbox360 and the PS3 have made it so that you no longer need the show itself -- you can create new episodes right out of the game!

Dragonball Z Burst Limit is the first game of the Dragonball Z series to hit the next generation consoles with key game features including online play, detailed 3D graphics, enhanced playable characters, and realistic battle fields. During each battle, players can utilize conditions to create new dramatic scenes, and then watch a unique story unfold after each play. There are stronger elements of offense and defense, due to added energy saving and fighting techniques. Read More...

Manga Review
by Carolyn Whu

Element LineWhat is a lot of blood and violence when you have a good story to get into? Barely into the first ten pages of the manga and we have a dead woman, a disemboweled hero, and lots of hacking and slashing of monsters but we haven't even met the boy that this whole story is about yet.

Doors of Chaos
Manga Review
by Carolyn Whu

Doors of ChaosYummy is the first word that comes into my mind when I think of Doors of Chaos. If you just glance at it, it looks very busy, too busy even. Between the scant but intricate clothes that our heroes and heroines wear and the many shades of blue, black, red, and brown everywhere on that cover, some people might just skip over this because their eyes are getting a little bleary. Doors of Chaos don't hold back in suggesting sex in any way, shape, or form as well. Between bondage, S&M, and rape, I think this is only the beginning. Read More...

Spy Goddess
Manga Review
by Carolyn Whu

Spy GoddessIt's like Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets James Bond but in manga form for younger people. You might think it's a strange combination (I think so, too) but the chemistry works AND, most importantly, it's not cheesy. I think the biggest factor in taking the cheese out is the writer. Unlike most manga nowadays, Spy Goddess is written by an American writer. Read More...
