Star Driver - Review
I really need to get back in to doing this more. I hate myself for choosing long series. Anyway lets get on with this
Star Driver takes place on the fictional Southern Cross Isle. One night, a boy named Takuto washes up on shore swimming from the mainland. He later enrolls in Southern Cross High School as a freshman and makes new friends. However, beneath the school is a group of mysterious giants called Cybodies, which can be controlled by humans in an alternate dimension known as Zero Time. Takuto, The “Galactic Pretty Boy”, (Ginga Bishounen), finds himself dragged into opposition with the “Glittering Crux”, a mysterious group that intends to take possession of the island’s Cybodies for their own purposes as well as break the seals of the island’s four Shrine Maidens, whose powers prevent the Cybodies from functioning outside of Zero Time.

Hyouka - Review
It’s Hyouka Sunday!! Or at least it was. but in memorial to the end of Hyouka I have made this review. Please enjoy.
Oreki Houtarou doesn’t like to do things that he considers a waste of energy. However, things start to change when he enters high school because even though he does not want to join any non-compulsory school activities, his older sister requested him to join the deserted Classics Club so that it won’t get demolished. Unknown to him, another student, Chitanda Eru, already planned to join; but instead of being free from club obligations, Hōtarō eventually joined as he is strangely unable to refuse nor to escape from Eru’s passionate gaze of curiosity. Together with his friends Satoshi and Mayaka, they began to discuss a variety of mysteries in school that only Houtarou seems to be able to solve; including the mystery that lingered on from Eru’s childhood memory.

Does anyone else think that episode by episode reviews are tedious?
I personally don’t understand why people do episode by episode reviews of anime and they just drop it in the middle of a season. I think that’s just depressing that rather then wait until the entire series is over and you can think about it as a whole and come up with a definitive judgement about it, you just drop it cuz it’s getting tedious and repetitive. (i.e.: The Stream)
While I understand that happens with a lot of series, I don’t think that you should just drop it. As a review you have a duty to watch it all to the end no matter how mind numbing retarded so that you can save the innocent future anime watchers from wasting their time.
And plus they’re just tedious as hell
(getting back to the real point that i wrote this for). I mean I couldn’t do it, not by myself anyway. To write an analytic report on 23-25 mins of animation is crazy to me. I mean what do you do when it’s over. Write your doctorate dissertation on how you hated Hyouka every episode with a graph. I mean seriously there is no need to constantly display your hate for something like that. that’s why I wait til it’s done (usually). If I dropped it, oh well I don’t have to write about it. If I liked it and stuck through then I’ll sing it’s praises.

Gundam Wing - Review
So since this is Gundam there are usually a lot of characters and it’s somewhat involved but it makes for an excellent beginner anime/gundam. And alot of the time Gundam really makes you think, but I’ll talk about that later. Anyway, here is a summary after the jump.

Bleach - Review
Well, as I’m typing this I’m in the middle of watching the original Saint Seiya. And aside from all the 80’s blood and fighting it gets tiring after a while. So I decided to write a review for the Bleach anime since I needed a little distraction and it finished a while ago.

When i watch Gundam AGE i think that it’s just so shonen. Not like Saint Seiya Omega (since that’s what its supposed to be like), but it feels like it’s trying to have a good plot but just fails at it. Like it’s really superficial and pure but all it boils down to is people fighting with giant robots over stupid reasons. Th only real part of AGE that i like was the second season with Asemu Asuno. With the other two they are just kids that end up in a battleship because of the situation. Asemu on the other hand actually got his ass in the army first before he was some warship flying around acting like a fool so it became more of a soldiers story rather a “turn of fate”

Reviews: Moving Towards the Future?
I’ve been thinking of start to make these reviews of mine into videos and just making videos for the rest of my entirety or until I get bored. I mean when I first started watching anime (which was back in the era where they were trying to retain the anime boom so over 5 years ago) I pretty much wanted to end up doing video reviews. I do have the one on youtube (X) but I made that 2 years ago. And like most of my projects it is unfinished, or rather I stopped working on it. I mean what do you expect from a middle schooler. Though I still do that now. But I going off on a tangent.
Anyway I was thinking that if I put them in a video format it might be easier to get with clips and videos. Rather then the one image I’m know for.
(and plus I’m too lazy to find the perfect screenshots from certain episodes.) And I might be able to regain that feeling i lost when i stopped making my second review all those years ago. So tell me what you think if you want, no obligation here.

Mawaru Penguindrum - Review
The story centers around three siblings, twins Kanba and Shouma, and their ill sister, Himari Takakura. Himari passes away after going out on a trip with her brothers. She was however, miraculously saved by a spirit thriving in a penguin-shaped hat. In return for her extended life, the twins must search for an item known as the Penguin Drum with the aid of three penguins which are visible only to the siblings.
So as misleading as that summary from ANN is, Penguindrum is a lot more in depth than it appears.
