CrunchyRoll Announces New Anime Violet Ever Garden Details and Trailer

Check out the new trailer for Violet Ever Garden. https://youtu.be/0CJeDetA45Q I am so excited for this! (and isn't the opening theme awesome too? And look how cute she is - and just OMG. Geeking out right now so bad lol.) I had never heard of it, until I saw the trailer on CrunchyRoll's Facebook page. From the comments on the facebook wall and the official website at http://www.kyotoanimation.co.jp/books/violet/ this anime is about Artificial Intelligence / AI / Robots / Robotics - Similar to Chobits, Time of Eve, Metropolis, HAL, and Plastic Memories. - All favorites of mine - I am fascinated by the concept of humanoid AI creatures - especially those who have feelings, or what we would classify as feelings - and how they would fit into society. It might also be quite similar to Teg

Tsukihime Visual Novel Review and Details about the Remake

Tsukihime was my very first visual novel, and still one of my favorites. While looking up images to use in this post, I also came across news that there's a remake in the works. This is old news I guess as it was first announced clear back in 2012. However, a post from Siliconera indicates that yes, it's still in development as of July 2015, so that's a good sign. You can see more updates about this remake over on Siliconera here. I'm not going to cover those details here, because this review is actually for the original Tsukihime visual novel from 2001. Also, I've never watched the anime, I've been told by many people that the Tsukihime anime sucked. Please don't ignore this visual novel, even if you really hated the anime. This is a must play for any visual novel fan. PS: You can g

Yobi the Five Tailed Fox | Anime Review | Korean Film | Korean Anime | Korean Animation | Korean Animated Film | Korean Movie | South Korea

While not technically an anime, per say, since it is not from Japan, Yobi the Five Tailed Fox is an excellent family film that has a similar style to that of Studio Ghibli. The story of Yobi the Five Tailed Fox tells us a Korean folk tale legend about Kitsune like creatures who could become human if they stole a human's soul. Because of that belief, that the foxes could steal souls, they became hunted almost to extinction. Except for Yobi, the "young" (if 100 years old is young) fox who lives in the forest with her farting alien family who are trying to repair their spaceship to return home. One of her family members wanders into a summer camp for humans near the forest one day and Yobi goes to the camp in her human form to try to convince the alien to return back home. However, once Yob...

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
