Casshern Sins

Author: Lady Soubi

 

Casshern Sins is the sort of anime which you rarely tend to see. It uses astounding artwork, animation and beautiful, if repetitive, music to set the perfect mood. If you dislike anime which never really knows where it’s going, then you would probably miss out on this anime’s charm. A sticking point to some about Casshern Sins is that, as it is an apocalyptic anime, it starts and ends sad. In spite of this downtrodden nature however, it adds to the anime’s charm.

Okay, I'll be honest with you people here: when I first looked at this anime, I actually had very high hopes because a lot of people on the JustDubs forums, now and in the past, have been talking about this and how it's something so great that nothing in existence can compare. For me, I didn't really get that experience. Rather, I sort of got the opposite. So, I suppose I'll start the review now. Here we go: Infinite Stratos.

Story:

Jyu-Oh-Sei

Author: Lady Soubi

 

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.

Shangri-la

Author: bedheadred

 

Sometime in the future, the Earth is ravaged by the effects of Global Warming. The flora fights back, violently overtaking civilization. In Japan, a perfect utopian society, Atlas, is built and shelters the chosen few, while the rest of society fend for themselves in the ruins of civilization. The global economy is based on carbon. The CO2 producing nations of the world owe large tax levies. Businessmen, hackers and terrorists alike battle for control of the global market and power.

Steins;Gate

Steins;Gate is a masterpiece. Anyone who says otherwise without giving you definitive proof of some kind of bad plot hole or character stretch is simply a hater. Don't try to reconcile with them, cause they don't deserve to enjoy what this anime has to offer.

I really can't describe the experience of watching Steins;Gate, you've just gotta do it. If you don't do it, you're missing out.

Story: [10/10]

It's great. Time-travelling and shit, confusing things and shit, Moeka's sexy body and shit. What's not to like?

Sword Art Online

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.
