Lovely Complex | LoveCom | Love*Com | Anime Review

Title: Lovely Complex (Also commonly referred to as Love*Com) Release Date: 2007 Episodes: 24 Based on: Manga by Aya Nakahara - There's also a live action movie but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're a die hard fan of this series - definitely read the manga or watch the anime first at least. The movie tries to fit 24 episodes into an hour or 2 hour format. It just doesn't work. Too much has to be cut. It kinda just felt like watching a recap or highlight reel. There's also a videogame but to my knowledge it has not been translated. The manga also has a sequel focusing on Risa's little brother. Genre: Romantic Comedy, Slice of Life, Drama Where to Buy: Amazon has it for $32 for the Complete Series on DVD http://www.amazon.com/Lovely... Geeky: 3/5  Sweetie: 5/5  Overall: 34 / 40 8

Steambot Chronicles | Retro Game Review | JRPG | RPG | PS2 | Playstation 2

I hope everyone had an excellent holiday. Today I'm reviewing Steambot Chronicles for PS2. This is one of my favorite games because of the amount of things to do and see as well as the unique steam punk setting within the game. Title: Steambot Chronicles Publisher: Atlus Platform: PS2 Release Date: 2006 Where to Buy: Amazon seems to be the only way to go (aside from ebay of course). The game was a commercial failure in north america, so not many copies exist; and it was before Atlus "struck gold" (and attainted a cult following) with games like Persona 3 and 4. There are currently 2 copies available on Amazon at time of this review for $90 - $120. You can keep checking back. Here is the page for the game on Amazon right here. Edit: Actually there appears to be 2 pages on Ama

Nodame Cantabile Anime Review

While sick last week, I marathoned my way through the first season of the anime version of Nodame Cantabile, a cute shoujo romantic-comedy anime about a young man (Chiaki) who wants to become a conductor. He encounters a girl who plays the piano with so much energy that it sounds as if she is singing. Her nickname is Nodame. Hence we get the title, Nodame Cantabile. A Cantabile is a musical term to describe instrumental music which emulates the sound of human voices singing. It literally means "to play (an instrument) as if singing". Interestingly, enough, the characters and events in this anime are based partially (although I'm sure exaggerated to a degree) on real life acquaintances and friends of the Mangaka who wrote the manga on which the anime is based.   My favorite thing ab...

School Days Visual Novel PC Game Review

I was asked by a reader that I met on crunchyroll's forums today if I would please review the School Days visual novel, from which the popular yandere anime is based. I actually picked this game up a few months ago in Groupee's Visual Novel 2 Bundle sale. And I'm glad I did. Now before we go on, this is an adult game, or hentai game as they call it. I won't be putting any adult screenshots or going into too much detail about these scenes. There is a lot of REAL story elements and it's more than just all about sex, but you should know that there is still a fair amount of Hentai in this game. With that out of the way, the single coolest thing is that unlike visual novels that you click and read, Playing School Days is more like watching an anime. You only have precious few seconds to m...

According to this article on Time.com Golden Compass Fans are about to get the sequel they've always wanted. Kinda. Am I the only person that actually LIKED? no... LOVED the first movie? I've been DYING to see what happens next! (and no I haven't read the books, sorry, I'm not a big "reader" these days. (I used to be, when I was in highschool, before this thing called the internet, which I think, kinda killed my attention span lol. ) (Not that I would never read a book these days, but I prefer watching movies, and sitting on my fat ass eating bag fulls of popcorn lol.). (mmm Popcorn (my favorite, its even better than chocolate)...) Ok so anyways, I digress. This exciting announcement just went viral today that thanks to the BBC network, we're about to get to see Philip Pullman's whole tri

Aishiteruze Baby Anime Review

This review, like the one published today for Peach Girl, also first appeared on my Anime-Planet.com profile. (and these are the only two reviews I've written over there (so far). Both these reviews are quite older, and don't completely jive with the scoring system here, but both these anime are among my top 5 :). In my original anime-planet.com review, I reference the similarities between this anime (which is not very popular on anime-planet) and Usagi Drops, another similar anime about a young man who finds himself suddenly raising a little girl, which is immensely popular on anime-planet (at time of my original review, it was in the top 50 anime on anime-planet). I've removed the paragraph comparing the two anime for my reblog over here because, it wouldn't make since to complain about

Peach Girl Anime Review

This review was originally published on anime-planet. My username over there is Xenokitten. (You can find me here: http://www.anime-planet.com/users/xenokitten) Why not come say Hi! ? :) Anime-planet.com is an awesome website that provides user generated recommendations and reviews to help you find the next anime you want to watch. For example, if you liked Chobits, you can go to the Chobits page on anime-planet and see other shows you might like, with an explanation of why the series are similar to eachother. It's really nifty. I use this site all the time. Also you can watch the latest episodes of your favorite or hard to find anime on their site as well. But perhaps the coolest thing about anime-planet is it lets you generate a "Life spent on anime" tracker for forum signatures, or webs

Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals Retro SNES JRPG Game Review

Title: Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals Genre: RPG Publisher: Natsume Platform: SNES Release Date: 1996 Geeky:  Sweetie:  Overall Score: 60/80 75% C “Good Game For Girls” Concept: 9/10 This review is for the 2nd game in the Lufia series. Although, chronologically, the events in this game take place before the events in Lufia & the Fortress of Doom. Which we reviewed by the way over here in our Lufia and the Fortress of Doom Review. The 2nd game improved upon many aspects of the original including some pacing issues with the story and enhanced graphics, more challenging puzzles to solve, and no more random encounters. The story in Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals takes you back to playing as Maxim and the original heroes who helped defeat the sinistrals as shown briefly in the prolo

Kdrama Angel Eyes Music Video Coldplay Sky Full of Stars

I downloaded Adobe Premiere (Free trial) tonight; and after playing around a bit, I was able to make my first ever music video. I do not own the rights to anything, other than the editing work within the video. Music is copyright Coldplay Sky Full of Stars Video footage is from Kdrama Angel Eyes. This video may contain Spoilers for those who have not seen the show. I think I used up to episode 8 within the video at some point. https://youtu.be/Tp9ljyY77W0 If you like this video please like, share, comment, or subscribe, and tell me what Kdrama music videos you'd like to see next. Sorry for poor quality, had trouble finding raw HD torrents so some of my footage is only 240p. Will do better next time :)
