Those of you with nothing better to do this summer should go now in search for a newspaper because Ghibli’s Earthsea hit theatres this Friday, and so far it’s going strong. Read on for a list of theatres in case you feel like catching it yourself, and a short review for those who feel like getting the DVD and checking it out.
Here we present a review that no true anime site can be without: Rurouni Kenshin, also known as Samurai X, was one of the greatest shows of its time and went to become a timeless classic. Yet there’s a dark side to all of this, a dark side many didn’t get to know…
This one comes out straight from the rumor mill; both the manga and anime are to reach a conclusion soon. The announcement came out of the blue and little more than the words printed on it are known to us. What it’s clear is that this can’t remain in mystery for long.
Those of you following the manga to its conclusion have a new reason to be cautiously excited; a new side story coming to us from Shonen Gangan is set to bring some new life into the title. The side story will be helmed by Hiromu Arakawa, the man behind the original. Read on for the known details.
FUNImation entertainment is set to release this new anime on Tuesday, August 30th. The anime is described by its tag-line as “Where T&A meets KO” so fans of martial arts, ecchi and well endowed ladies, have plenty to look forward to from this new anime and by default plenty to look at.
It wasn’t too long ago that a new anime take on the title was announced and now it seems that the manga is to be brought back in the form of a new edition. The title is to be considered a spin-off, whether or not this will bring mayor changes to the plot is unknown. Read on for the known facts.
As much as this anime has yet to grace the western shores of the world in an official manner, it would be a pretty big oversight on our part not to report of this new project by SHAFT. It’s safe to assume that our readers also follow Bakemonogatari…this being the era of the internet and all. So stay tuned for news on a different side of the story.
Did you like part one? Then come on over for the rest! You could also read this in case you are more into small comparisons than analysis and opinion. But in any case, you ought to find something interesting here.
They are both different mediums, yet it’s common to see them extrapolate with each other due to how stories tend to be adapted to fit them individually. Most of the time, we can see a manga come to life in an anime. Or, in some rare cases, see an anime’s story fleshed out by a lengthy manga. Here, we’ll try to expose reasons as to why this usually doesn’t work.
For those that are without the means or possibility to get their hands on paperback manga, one popular free scanlated manga provider “One Manga” is sadly coming to an end. So, we bring to you the details of the bad news in case you hadn’t planned on paying your respects yet.
On account of this week being somewhat slow anime news wise, we present to you yet another mecha related extravaganza! Evangelion is not to be outdone when it comes to mecha. So prepare to behold a purple behemoth and stare deep into the eyes of the beast.
Neon Genesis Evangelion is as influential as it is popular and some would even go and call it over rated; others would call it a masterwork….there’s no middle ground here, folks. Hate it or love it.
Those of you that keep up with the site will remember the announcement made to report on To Love-Ru’s new anime incarnation. You will also remember that the announcement was sketchy enough as to not clarify what form the animation would take. Read on for that.
Here’s some good news coming from the anime world’s rumor mill: prepare yourselves for some flashy big robot action in the nearby future! Super Robot Wars is getting another anime adaptation, read on to get in on the scoop.
