ロボティクス・ノーツ

Anime Review by Brian Cirulnick

Robotics: NotesMany High Schools and Colleges now sponsor robotics clubs or courses to foster engineering and science talent in the students. It's very likely your school has a club devoted to building a robot to enter into competitions, or be part of a Maker Faire. Yes, robots are for real, even though they are little more than fancy remote control cars with some extra servos.
 
Now fast forward to 2019 Japan, and that's the setting for Robotics; Notes, except with a slight plot twist. Aki's school started building a Giant Robot, based on a popular anime at the time 'GunBarrel', and the project was started by her sister 8 years earlier and Aki hopes to complete the robot this year.

Psycho Pass
Psycho Pass
サイコパス

Anime Review by Brian Cirulnick

Psycho PassPsycho Pass is dark, dark, dark. And I mean that in a good way. It's an utterly brutal dystopian view of the future, and definitely a world I would not want to live in. And by dystopian, it's a not a post-apocalyptic, Mad-Max style world. Oh no, that would be a thousand times more preferable to what's going on here.

No, no, this world is a cyberpunk-ish, horrific police-state where people live in dull, grey boxes that are decorated by holograms, their clothing is even decorated by holograms, their life is pre-programmed, and jobs assigned by how well they do on a test while in school, and worst of all, their every thought is pretty much monitored by computers.

Anime Review by Brian Cirulnick

OzmaWhen Yamato 2199's pre-production designs started hitting Japanese anime magazines about 2 years ago, anime.com's publisher immediately complained about the character designs, claiming they were too girlish-looking and not in the traditional Matsumoto style.
 
Although I found the character designs to be fine, and certainly by the time Yamato 2199 started airing, we'd accepted it and moved on and simply enjoyed the show, although I know some fans were secretly hoping it would be done ala Matsumoto. Even I was wondering what a modern anime done in Matsumoto style would look like.
 
Well, as the old saying goes, be careful what you wish for. Read More...

Kamisama Kiss
Kamisama Kiss
神様はじめました

Anime Review by Brian Cirulnick

Kamisama Kiss Kamisama Kiss might seem a little "familiar" to you if you've seen Inuyasha. But while Inuyasha was in-your-face, Kamisama Kiss is a bit more subtle, although it goes for the comedy element in that same style as all modern anime.

Nanami is a 17-yr old High School girl with a few problems presented in the first 5 minutes, and by problems, I mean she's homeless. Her father amassed a lot of gambling debts, he's run off and the house was seized, she was kicked out, and soon finds herself sitting on a park bench contemplating the fact that she's going to have to spend the night there. But she hears someone yelling for help and finds a man in a tree scared to death of a small dog barking at him. Read More...
