Anime Ate My Brain Magazine. Steins;Gate can be summed up in the term "brilliant chaos" Sinister agendas surround the protagonists as new areas of science thought to be debunked over and over again are revealed to be truth.
Deadly truth in a massive cover up of exactly what we humans are capable of with particle physics and the understanding of quantum mechanics. Tatum voices Okabe with an intensity that continues to earn him his spot as one of the best VAs in anime dubbing, and can turn on a dime to being dower and serious to downright perverted in his verbal sparring with female lead Kurisu Makise, a brilliant 18 year old researcher and lecturer.
Kurisu is perfectly voiced by Trina Nishimura, in fact while this reviewer is a fan of Ms. Nishimura, I have to say this may be my favorite out of her roles to date. Originally a visual novel game developed by 5pb. These are the same developers that brought the advent of Chaos;Head a year or so earlier and it's eventual anime adaptation which was also distributed in the US by FUNimation.
Artwork, dubbing, pacing, story, action, science, music, comedy I'll go so far as to say OVER and above praise. The atmosphere painted with the animation is at the same time hazy and etheral yet stark and jarring at the story appropriate moments that slap you across the retinas, and reminds you to leave your full attention on the screen. The Future Gadgets Laboratory is texting from the future, will you follow the world lines toward it or will you alter space and time to seize control of your timeline?
Steins;Gate gets a 5 out of 5! This series is definitley making it's way to this reviewer's personal collection of anime titles. Shangri-La is a mixed bag of interesting and awesome, like a dystopian futurist's greatest dream or nightmare depending on their personal morals and ethics.
The concepts placed in the series are interesting and could very well become the future if overzealous governmental controls and mounting environmental problems persist This reviewer will put away such personalized spin on the politics of the series, but these themes and plot points are key to Shangri-La.
The heart of the series truly comes from it's core cast of protagonists, and main protagonist Kuniko Hojo in particular delivers much of said heart through her beliefs and moral judgements on what is right and wrong. This further extends through her relationships with her adopted family group consisting of her grandmother Nagiko Hojo, the head of Metal Works; a role she intends to groom Kuniko to take over someday.
For this reason Momoko is my favorite character after Kuniko. Getting back to the geo-political state of the world in this excellent series based on the light novel by Eiichi Ikegami, Japan was mostly destroyed a few decades prior in the mid-twenty-first century by a massive earthquake leaving Tokyo as the largest jungle-oplis on the planet split between the home of the elite citizens in Atlas and those left on the surface of the country.
At the core, it's economics that truly drives the political intrigues and conspiracies against the lower castes; which is nothing new to anyone that has watched the news over the past recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed years. Recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed Shangri-La really delves deep into the concept of economy driven politics, rebellion, puppeteering, free markets versus government run commerce, etc.
This reviewer finds it to be a breath of fresh air, and once you move past the excellent sci-fi angles of the anime, it really calls the viewer to think about the state of the world and how much economics truly govern in our world today.
And just how good or bad for the human race that is. Animation is gorgeous, as is expected of Gonzo; though if I'm honest I don't always like the character designs Gonzo sets forth. Dub actors nail every character once more thanks to the talented crew at FUNimation Entertainment including fan favorite greats J.
Admittedly I haven't watched the original Japanese audio version yet, but the actors cast in the dub version really do shine in their craft on this series. You can tell the actors involved wanted to be involved and liked voicing their characters, the cast really put themselves into this one and there's just no beating that. For more check out www. The series feels like a combination of Evangelion, without the EVA units, dark psychology, recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed BDSM fetishism well here and there for everyone that just said "screw that noise"and a 90s high school romantic comedy but set around the early s after a race of interdimensional alien beings begin attacking the planet in a seeming bid to wipe out humanity and take over our Mother Earth.
Without having read the manga that the anime is based on, I don't know if there is anything lost in translation from medium to medium, but it feels like there could be much deeper levels to this story.
The crew at FUNimation has done a great job with reversioning the original Japanese series, both writers and dub actors, but it still feels like there could be something really great in Freezing but it doesn't quite make the mark, it hits the line between average and great with only a foot over that line into greatness.
And that is the thing, Freezing is not unenjoyable, in spite of what I said above; this is an enjoyable series if you like action and can laugh at heavy amounts of fan service. For those looking for more serious sci-fi there are interesting spins on biotechnology and hard light projections in this one.
Animation is the slick colorful style, though when there are intense battles between the Pandoras and Nova the atmosphere of the scenes change to match the action.
A dystopian Utopia filled with sinister secrets known only by the government created in the aftermath of a great war that destroyed recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed habitable land on the planet Geopolitical and socioeconomic worries of the planet aside, No. Though the microcosm does most assuredly affect the macrocosm in the story, we focus in particular on young men Shion and Nezumi Rat from their initial meeting as young pre-teens as Nezumi flees government manhunters to their paths crossing again four years later after the fallout in Shion's life for aiding Nezumi.
Shion is a gifted student specializing in botany, Recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed is a rebellious young drag queen from the slums outside the "perfect" life citystate No.
Yaoi fans that have not seen either the Japanese lanuage original or the dub are probably excited now at the mention of Nezumi's cross dressing and role as a drag queen to earn money from his performances Last bit of soap box speak, once more this story does it right, the bond is never made a spectacle, novelty, or fetish; it merely is what it is, a bond of mutual respect and love between recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed human beings.
The animation of No. This should not be a surprise though as the studio behind No. The dub acting is very well done by the cast; including well known fan favorites Greg Ayres and Luci Christian.
Definitely a series to pick up and check out if you like to think about your entertainment, and maybe give a thought to the world and where we're all headed on the current global path For more on No. At first glance Planzet looks like your typical humans versus alien lifeform for domenation of the earth anime, and on the serfacxe it is, but the real shining point of the feature is human story underlying the sci-fi action.
The English dub is well cast and very well acted by fan favorites and lead chaacter voice actors Blake Shepard and Brittney Karbowski.
The CG animation is top notch, coloring is stark and breeds a feeling of hopelessness, but it fits the movie's atmosphere perfectly set in a post-apocalyptic where the earth has been in many ways decimated by the invading FOS. At times it feels as though too much has been placed into one stand alone feature, especially with it coming in just under the hour mark but in the end it works.
Overall the movie gets a 4 out of 5, this is earned from the best CG animation available in the movie's original production year of and the story of Hiroshi and Koyomi. Fractale is a little more than your average cautionary tale against letting technology rule too much of our lives, it takes things deeper showing the affects of techologic isolation through use of "doppels".
Doppels are cyber avatars that take our place in the real world as there is no real recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed between the physical and digital worlds in the dystopian eutopia the world has become. Reliance on and rebellion from the massive A. Protagonist Clain lives on his own, visited daily by the doppels of his parent who live in separate towns so their personal freedoms aren't restricted by old world ties to other people is emotionally separate and separated from life at the beginning of the series, Clain is also the only "normal" citizen of the world that doesn't have a doppel.
Clain's world is soon thrown out of the balance he has known his whole life by Phryne's explosive entry into his life while being persued by seeming, and bungling, villians Enri Granitz and her lackeys Takamy and Butcher. By helping Phryne evade her persuers Clain opens up his world to adventure, danger, and personal evolution that could help to reshape the world as it has become known. Engrossing and enjoyable, as the heavy subject matter and moral issues presented are peppered heavily with moments of comedic relief and genuinely heartwarming moments such as when Clain relaizes he wants Nessa in his lifethe series never feels overly preachy with it's message even while making a good point.
Said cautionary message isn't stale or highly cliched in Fractale though, recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed is primarily due to seeing the converse point of view when it comes to giving ourselves over to recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed eutopianism.
Rarely is the pro-tech view humanized with each side being morally ambiguous enough to let viewers question which recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed stance they themselves side with. Animation is slick and flowing, which is to be expected of A-1 Studios, the music of the series captures the essence of growing up and questioning authority perfectly; and is well complemented with compositions designed to show the awe of how big the world is no matter how small technology makes it seem at times.
The dub cast is superb led by fan favorite Brina Palencia as Clain, adapting her voice to play a young boy once more. Her Clain is as different from Ciel Phantomhive of Black Butler in intonation and warmth as to make Clain his own being; at first listen fans may not recognize Brina's voice, further showing why she is one of the best dub voice actors on the scene.
Luci Christian provides the dubbing for Nessa, going from serious to confused to playful in the same sentence, Luci plays Nessa to moe hera perfection. Christian's Nessa learns as much as teaches Palencia's Clain as they journey together facing all odds to complete their quest. For more on Fractale check out www. Not for the faint of heart, anyone under the age of That said, Panty and Stocking is great for all those horrible and wonderful things! Plus the series parodies so much in just one episode that it shames both SNL and Funny or Die in just hlaf an episode.
On top of the funny, both parody and inappropiate, there's also recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed turdsicle load, watch the first episodes first half and that will be funny as hell trust me, of action in this anime. In short, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt is a over the top gross out fun, hyper sexual romp of awesome!
There isn't much of anything to demerit this series, it is short clocking in only 13 episodes and so far one special but that's becoming the stand by for newer recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed. The stories are episodic without underlying plotlines and a clear course for the overall story until the end which leaves open the door for recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed second series.
Neither point bothers this reviewer, I have read other reviews that knock the series for either or both points, but if the reviewer or fans are taking a series meant to be balls to wall funny that seriously they're missing the entire point and enjoyment of an anime like Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt.
Dub casting is superb! Monica Rial as Stocking is just perfect, Rial can go from cute and cuddly moe to psycho yandere in 2 milliseconds flat and it is impressive every time. Jackson and Redd Foxx that no other white man on this planet could pull off, making this reviewer that much more of a fan of Mister Sabat.
Plus Colleen Clinkenbeard and Cherami Leigh as Scanty and Kneesocks respectively are both, pardon the pun and spoiler, devilishly awesome!. But if you're not easily offended with an open minded sense of humor this anime may be right up your alley. Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt gets a 4. Of the Dead" " Obu za Deddo" Part 2: Daten Shiti no Maboroshi" Futari wa Enjeru" In Dream Eater Merry you see the anime archetypes fairly quick, but the series quickly builds past them in just the first episode; and you fast find yourself watching a series that while short is engrossing and thought provoking Without spoiling too much, the plot revolves around the connection between what we deem the "real world", the waking world, and the world of dreams and its denizens.
Further than that the series delves into how the two recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed affect each other and the dangers each presents to the other.
Slathered with eye popping visuals that blend 2D and CG animation not something this reviewer is usually a fan of in the amount done within this series better than I've seen in awhile. The anime has been criticized as having more style than substance and being a poor man's Soul Eater, I disagree; the problem is knowing where to look for the substance, just like reading it's no fun as a viewer if everything is handed to you.
As stated above, archetypes make themselves known in the characters quickly, and recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed the main characters do transcend these archetypes at points for character evolution that creates true depth of personality, really humanizing them, they are never transcended completely.
This however, does not take away from the story as long as you can take some fan service and humor. Not in amounts that would wreck the story but it's there.
All that said, Dream Eater Merry does still tackle an recensione broker fairy tail zero episode 13 english subbed concept, that while done before still carries weight and is fascinating from psychological and philisophical points. Of particular interest from a character study standpoint is "Chaser" John Doe, the first Dream Demon that human protagonist Yumeji Fujiwara meets as Doe wishes to commandeer the body of Fujiwara to visit the waking world as humans alomost freely visit the dream world.
Also the main protagonist Merry Nightmare provides interesting character study through her past and why she finds our world so horrible to be trapped in. Dub actors are spot on in their characterizations of the cast, each finding a perfect vocal range to express the dialogues, monologues, and exchanges between cast members. In short, molds aren't broken here but they are refined by a good measure.
