    Anime Review Roundup

    Inline Image
    Since you got a dose of news on Saturday, I think I'll dive straight into the anime reviews this week, and fortunately there's more than just a single review to point you to. First up was Fate/Stay Night: Volume 2, in which the fantasy battle genre still crosses with the harem comedy genre, and somehow manages to work. In this volume, when characters aren't getting their wires crossed, they cross swords instead. Magic and romance, what more could you want from an anime?

    More romance next, and if you hadn't noticed, yesterday was Valentine's Day. Romeo X Juliet: Volume 1 would be the perfect anime ingredient for an otaku romance. Studio Gonzo take the classic Shakespearean tragedy, and put their own unique spin on the story. We have the floating continent of Neo Verona, the Montagues wiped out the Capulets when they usurped their throne, but one little girl survived. Now that girl Juliet is the freedom fighter, The Red Whirlwind, who one day encounters a young nobleman named Romeo. Travesty, homage, or work of genius? Click my review to find out.

    Finally, it was the turn of Region 1 to fall victim to my debit card. It's still cheaper to buy some anime in the US and transport it thousands of miles across the Atlantic, leaving a bunch of carbon footprints in its wake. I took a look at Paniponi Dash: Volume 1. It's yet another high school comedy in a medium that abounds with high school comedies. It's also another comedy that sees a schoolteacher younger than her students. If you already own Negima, should you be buying this? You know what to click…

    Oops, almost forgot! Continuing from last week's sojourn in the world of Japanese live action cinema, you may be interested to know that there is a Special Edition release of Kamikaze Girls.

    MVM release Fate/Stay Night: Volume 2, and Romeo X Juliet: Volume 1 today. ADV released Paniponi Dash in the US years ago, before they went bust. Third Window Films released Kamikaze Girls SE last Monday. And don't forget to enter the D.Gray-Man competition.
