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”

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (6)

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) 2019 And now to the final in a series of ‘not an episode review’ posts – this time it’s episodes 11 and 12: First thing I noticed was that perhaps this mid-point doesn’t have a really big cliffhanger to tide everyone over until April – but it still hasContinue reading “No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (6)”

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (5)

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) 2019 Fifth in a series of ‘not an episode review’ posts – this time it’s episodes 9 and 10: So far there’s been zero follow-up on Olivier and so I’m not sure what the show wants us to assume about her at this point, and the Colt storyline wasContinue reading “No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (5)”

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (4)

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) 2019 The fourth of my ‘not an episode review’ posts focusing on this series: I’ve only seen 1-7 now but the last two episodes definitely upped the ante. Happy to get some backstory for Olivier and also receive a few more answers re: Tindalos too. Despite the deepening intrigueContinue reading “No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (4)”

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (3)

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) 2019 Continuing my ‘not an episode review’ posts 🙂 Just finished 4,5 & 6 and very happy that Tetsurou got at least something in the way of a consequence for his stunt and seeing Juzo’s ‘head gun’ in action was impressive – I actually didn’t think it would beContinue reading “No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (3)”

Psycho-Pass (Saiko Pasu)

Psycho-Pass (Saiko Pasu) 2012 I thought I’d try to avoid a long, rambling preamble for a change and instead take a shot at summing up my response to the show in a few words – disturbing, fascinating and mostly compelling. While it actually took me months to finish Psycho-Pass (usually watching one or a fewContinue reading “Psycho-Pass (Saiko Pasu)”

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (2)

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) 2019 As with my last post on this series, I’ll quickly mention up front that this won’t be an ongoing ‘episode review’ kinda thing, but I will mention bits and pieces from episodes as I go (although I don’t have a schedule in mind either.) So! This time IContinue reading “No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (2)”

B: The Beginning

Perhaps a quick warning – this review is even more rambling than usual, so if you’re looking for a plot summary maybe click here first 😀 So! There was a whole lot I liked about B: The Beginning (and it’s nice to know there is a second season in production) but one thing that bugsContinue reading “B: The Beginning”
