Promare

Promare (2019) Whenever folks complain about CGI in anime (as I sometimes certainly do) it’s not about this level of application and integration, I hope. Promare looks amazing, and some scenes are burnt into my memory I reckon – two of which I’ll mention below. There is definitely a lot to like if you’re aContinue reading “Promare”

TTGL Collab with Scott from Mechanical Anime

Here it is! I’ve been (typically?) awfully busy of late, and so a combination of scheduled posts + random bursts of energy have kept me in the blogging game, but today I want to share something that was heaps of fun and which I worked on with Scott for a while (I slowed things downContinue reading “TTGL Collab with Scott from Mechanical Anime”

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet (Suisei no Gargantia)

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet (Suisei no Gargantia) 2013 Once again, I’m going to fight my urge to ramble here – so, that means just a few paragraphs now, focusing on Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet this time. If you’ve never come across this series I think I’ll mention that it stands out in theContinue reading “Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet (Suisei no Gargantia)”

Gunsmith Cats: Bulletproof

Gunsmith Cats: Bulletproof 1995 Gunsmith Cats maybe still holds that ‘cult’ status now, even after the internet has no doubt introduced more folks to this mid-90s OVA. (So too, the Kickstarter campaign that funded a re-issue a few years back now.) I love so much about this series but I’m torn when it comes toContinue reading “Gunsmith Cats: Bulletproof”

The Perfect Insider (Subete ga F ni Naru)

The Perfect Insider (Subete ga F ni Naru) 2015 Okay, so in an effort to avoid spoiler-territory I’ve been wondering how to phrase what I guess you’d call a ‘content warning’ about this one – something you’d see on the cover of the DVD, basically. Here in Australia, my copy says that The Perfect InsiderContinue reading “The Perfect Insider (Subete ga F ni Naru)”

Abandoned #6 (Ga-Rei: Zero, Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2045 & El Cazador de la Bruja)

Welcome to my 6th ‘Abandoned’ post and of course, my usual disclaimer that I might come back to these one day! Ga-Rei: Zero (2008) During my slump the other month (when I was having a lot of trouble finishing things) I started and abandoned various anime and Ga-Rei: Zero was one of them. I’ve seenContinue reading “Abandoned #6 (Ga-Rei: Zero, Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2045 & El Cazador de la Bruja)”

Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki no Bahamut)

Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki no Bahamut) 2014 Okay, here’s a challenge for me – can I review a series in four paragraphs only? Let’s see. Demons, Angels, Gods and Humans clash (and sometimes work together) in this supernatural fantasy, one that’s based on a card battling game from Cygames. You can expect a lot ofContinue reading “Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki no Bahamut)”

Guin Saga

Guin Saga is one that I’m having trouble deciding on a rating for – I liked it enough but I don’t know if I’d actually recommend it, unless you’re a fan of the novels this anime is based on, perhaps. This series is a fantasy epic from the early days of CGI that gives youContinue reading “Guin Saga”

A Liquid Top Ten (2020, Film Edition)

Much like my previous, similar post to this one, I want this list to change whenever I come back to it 🙂 Also like my last post, there’s no special reason to do this really – but it serves two purposes for me; Self-Reflection and Fun. I do think that as bloggers and audiences weContinue reading “A Liquid Top Ten (2020, Film Edition)”
