As someone who has seen the original 2003 anime it was a pleasure to learn that Hiromu Arakawa's popular series, Fullmetal Alchemist, would be getting a remake that is faithful to the manga. When the first series aired back in 2003 it was praised by many as a masterpiece, so as you can imagine when Brotherhood was announced many people were doubtful as to whether or not it could live up to the first series. To many people’s surprise however, Brotherhood far surpassed their expectations.

Jyu-Oh-Sei is the sort of anime that can easily impress those that would usually overlook it's premise as not for them. With a constant stream of surprises it is never boring; the loveable cast and plot is very well produced. With a number of elements conspiring to make it a success, Jyu-Oh-Sei is unfortunately the sort of anime to often overlooked due to brevity.
A long, long time ago, there was a man named Timekeeper who was scrolling through Netflix with a bored, glazed look in his eyes. Through his wanderings, he stumbled upon a series called "Magi: the Labyrinth of Magic". It looked appealing enough, but he wasn't sure whether or not he was motivated enough to start a new anime series. He then darted his eyes towards his ever-increasing pile of bills, research papers, and calls from his mother wanting to chew him out over something trivial. It was then he decided that he would give the series a watch.
*Intro* Da-Da-Da!!! Welcome to a SoTa PoP Review! It’s late October right now, and Halloween’s around the corner. A time where dreams meet reality, and our scariest stories are given life once again; reminding us of all the spooks that once went bump in the night. But what if they never left, only organized and blended in?
Many many years ago, I stumbled upon this series while attempting to find a new series to watch. When I was told by many anonymous users, forum-goers, and various other individuals that it was the best thing since sliced bread, I decided to give it a watch. After watching the first and second season (the latter of which took Funimation a century to license), I'm a bit confused as to what my experience was. Why was this? Let's dive in.
Okay, yes. I did say in a thread earlier beforehand that I was going to review Gankutsuou next, but to be perfectly honest, the show is taking more time to get to where it's going than a snail strapped to an anchor dragging it's way from one end of the Sahara to the next. So unless the show has a point it's trying to reach, which I really hope it does, I don't see how I can write a review in which I'm investing about as much time into as the US government is investing in anything but war.
