Anime Review #94: Paprika

Anime Review #94: Paprika

I shall now be making my first movie review of the year! Satoshi Kon's Paprika, like my investigation into Little Nemo: Adventures In Slumberland and Netflix's Slumberland, focuses on the world of dreams. Instead of focusing solely on characters who navigate through a dream world and has their adventures there recorded for our amusement, here … Continue reading Anime Review #94: Paprika

Anime Review #93: Megalo Box

Anime Review #93: Megalo Box

So, let's get one thing straight: I don't watch a lot of sports anime. I've heard of a lot of them, such as Kuroko No Basketball, Captain Tsubasa or the recent ice hockey anime Pride Of Orange, but I've never bothered to tune into any of them. Besides, why would I when I've got Toronto … Continue reading Anime Review #93: Megalo Box

Anime Review #92: Cowboy Bebop – The Movie

Anime Review #92: Cowboy Bebop – The Movie

Two weeks ago, I reviewed the Cowboy Bebop series which depicted the exploits of bounty hunter trio of Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine and Jet Black across space, capturing hoodlums of all sorts to sustain themselves financially. Well, that is, at least on the surface: beneath their adventures was their inner struggle between themselves and their … Continue reading Anime Review #92: Cowboy Bebop – The Movie

Anime Review #91: Boku No Hero Academia – Two Heroes

Anime Review #91: Boku No Hero Academia – Two Heroes

What if I told you that there's an anime version of a certain famous 1980s blockbuster involving a group of terrorists taking over a skyscraper, holding its occupants hostage unless their onerous demands are met, and it's up to an underdog character to jump into the fray, and dispose of them? (If you haven't been … Continue reading Anime Review #91: Boku No Hero Academia – Two Heroes

Anime Review #90: Cowboy Bebop

Anime Review #90: Cowboy Bebop

I first heard of this anime about four years ago when, at a friend's house gathering, the question was discussed about what shows would be great to recommend for someone who would like to get started in anime - to be more specific, someone's girlfriend at the time - and it developed into "What flick … Continue reading Anime Review #90: Cowboy Bebop

Anime Review #89: Madoka Magica – Rebellion

Anime Review #89: Madoka Magica – Rebellion

At Puella Magi Madoka Magica's closing arc, Madoka managed to vanquish Kyubey's energy-incubation system, which took advantage of magical girls' despair to preserve the world. In doing so, she makes a supreme act of self-oblation, achieving a status of divinity and using that to rewrite the universe so that magical girls don't exist, and witches … Continue reading Anime Review #89: Madoka Magica – Rebellion

Anime Review #88: F-Zero – Legend Of Falcon

Anime Review #88: F-Zero – Legend Of Falcon

I used to intern for a small software company in Toronto for 16 months from 2017-18 following my third year of university, and there are several things I miss about it. The office building was located near a Catholic parish which offered the Traditional Latin Mass, so on some weekday mornings and evenings I'd have … Continue reading Anime Review #88: F-Zero – Legend Of Falcon
