Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin Review: A Story of Bonds and Brotherhood

Image

Last night I finished watching Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin, and what an experience it was.  One of the most fantastic displays of brotherhood I’ve seen and just an awesome story all around.  It’s certainly the type of story I would love to see more of in anime. Continue reading

Metal Gear Solid Review: Snake’s Infiltration and the Fight Against FOXHOUND

Image

Just finished playing through Metal Gear Solid today, and wow.  I can certainly see why it has the following it does and it was a very entertaining game to play.  It may not be a perfect game but it did some great things for its time and was a good deal of fun throughout in spite of my total lack of experience in the genre.

Psycho-Pass Review: Ambiguous Morality and a Twisted Society

Image

Yesterday I finished watching through Psycho-Pass.  Psycho-Pass was an interesting watch that is quite different from most of the series I’ve already seen.  It’s far from perfect, but it was nonetheless very worthwhile and presented some interesting themes and ideas for the viewer to think about.

Ao no Exorcist Review: The Life of a Demon Exorcist

Image

Finished watching Ao no Exorcist yesterday, and it was a pretty enjoyable series overall.  I’ve always enjoyed action Shounen series and this is one I hadn’t gotten to for a while, so I enjoyed watching it at last.  One of these days I’ll have to read the manga as well, but for now the anime will suffice, as there is a lot I have to finish this summer.

Saya no Uta Review: Distorted Morality and a Horrifying Reality

Image

Well yesterday I finished playing through the short visual novel known as Saya no Uta, and I can definitely say it was a strange one, to say the very least.  Saya no Uta was easily one of the most disturbing, screwed up stories I have ever encountered in any medium.  Saya was up there with stories like Berserk and Higurashi in terms of insane, explicit content.  The key difference, however, is that I was very engaged with those two because of their intricate plots and wide character development.  Saya no Uta, while a good story, was much less appealing to me in the long run and lacking in a few areas.

Katawa Shoujo Review: Disabilities and Defining Oneself

Image

Well ever since I finished Lilly’s route I’ve been pretty much done with Katawa Shoujo, only needing to go back for one scene.  This last week has been pretty busy with projects and finals to deal with so I didn’t get time to post again, but now that I’m out on summer vacation it’s a good time for me to write about my final impressions on Katawa Shoujo as a whole. Continue reading

Katawa Shoujo: Lilly’s Route Review: My Final KS Adventure

Image

Yesterday night I managed to complete my final route of Katawa Shoujo, and with one scene after that 100% completion of the entire game.  Now Katawa Shoujo was definitely quite the experience and there’s a lot I could say about it, but before I go on to post about my final thoughts on the game, I think it’s better to focus on the girl of my last route: Lilly Satou.
