Anime: Ao no Exorcist Movie

Ao no Exorcist was a surprise find for me back in 2011. I really enjoyed the series and look forward to reading the manga when it eventually ends. I’ve anticipated the movie since it was announced, and was hoping it would be more of a continuation, rather than a “spin-off”. Sadly, it was a one episode … Continue reading

Anime: Toshokan Sensou – Kakumei no Tsubasa

How long has it been since I’ve watched something anime related? Not that long actually, I just haven’t really been reviewing what I’ve watched.   Well, I’m here to rectify that. I just watched Toshokan Sensou the movie recently, and being a fan of the series I felt compelled to talk about it first. This … Continue reading

Anime: 1001 Nights

The power of music is really a force to be reckoned with. This beautiful one-shot is just a perfect homage to music. It is part of the Filmharmonic series, which saw orchestral pieces accompanied by short films. Nights was the series’ only animated work and is a wonderful journey into the dreams of two lovers. It’s colourful … Continue reading

Anime: Wolf Children

  Wow, talk about anticipation. I have been waiting to watch this movie for the longest time and even more so after reading this wonderful review by Genkinahito. I missed the screening of this in Singapore and have regretted every moment of it. So it was with much trepidation that I finally sat down and … Continue reading

Anime: The Princess and the Pilot

Titles are important. We may not realize it sometimes, but titles give us a glimpse of what is to come. They attract viewers and if they’re interesting and well-chosen they can cause people to stop and take a look. The English title of this movie is actually really bad, I think the Japanese title “Recollection … Continue reading

Anime: Trigun: Badlands Rumble

I adore Trigun. The anime was my first contact with the series and I enjoyed it immensely. I loved the philosophical aspect of it, I loved the crazy comedy and what I loved most of all were the short segments at the end of each episode where Vash describes what is going to happen in … Continue reading

Anime: A Letter to Momo

For anyone who has ever lost a loved one, this movie will stir up many painful memories. It’s a story about Momo who lost her father after they had a fight and is struggling to come to terms with that. It’s an emotional topic but the story manages to bring closure and comfort.   This … Continue reading

Anime: Prince of Tennis: Eikokushiki Teikyuu Shiro Kessen!

There’s just something about Prince of Tennis that keeps me coming back for more. Maybe it’s all the pretty boys, maybe it’s just insane moves, or maybe it’s the amount of crack that each season or movie serves up.   Seriously. At this point of time, one shouldn’t really take the plot seriously. A street … Continue reading

Anime: Redline

I think this year is going to be one of anime movies for me. Easy to watch as they only span an hour or two. Very different from series. Animation quality is usually higher, although I guess depth of characters and stories are sometimes compromised. Anyway, Redline, the first anime on my 50 anime challenge … Continue reading

Anime: Gin’iro no Kami no Agito

  Stunning. Absolutely stunning. Origin – Spirits of the past is an absolute beauty to watch. Animation is crisp. Colours are vibrant. The world created, the environment is just so pretty. Not just pretty, but full of detail and life and atmosphere. The background truly conveys so many feelings as well as the thoughts of … Continue reading
