Captain Earth: Episode 20-22 Review

The final confrontation is at hand for Captain Earth. There were a few surprises here and there to be had, but the series is still wrapping things up for the most part, and there were some resolutions that seemed to be surprisingly rushed that could have been spread out more evenly across episodes.

Captain Earth: Episode 14-16 Review

Love is in the air, and there certainly is plenty to go around in this next installment of Captain Earth.

The audience is expected to know who the characters are already, and nearly all the jokes refer back to events in both the original anime and game.

Persona 4 the Golden ANIMATION: Episode 01 Review

If someone had told me ten years ago that an niche genre video game series combining dating sim and dungeon crawl mechanics would emerge as one of the most-hyped Japanese role-playing game series since Final Fantasy, I would have thought said person was under the influence of some mind-altering substance (alternately I would have begged said person to join my scarcely-attended university anime club that I reigned over, but that’s another story).
