|Betterman (TV)||Masterpiece||Betterman is an awesome series in my opinion. It surprised me, creeped me and amazed me. I first seen it on TechTV's Anime Unleashed in March 2003. The story was phenomenal and took my breath away. I give it my highest rating. I bought all 6 DVDs three by three in May 2003. I prefer to watch Betterman in Japanese with English subtitles rather than English dubbed because of the location and dialogues. Though I have my favorite dialogue moments in English. Best to watch Betterman at night with Dolby surround sound from my point of view. Heck Id like to see Betterman cosplayers out there, I bow to them with amazement! -betterjuice <_<|

This ethereal boys-love film, appearing in a limited theatrical engagement beginning May 6th, dives right into the love confessions and intimacy and never turns back. ― When I first heard Aniplex was going to start screening a critically and financially successful boys' love movie produced by A-1 Pictures in theaters, I was pretty puzzled. Boys' love, shonen-ai, yaoi, however you want to slice it, is...

Everyone's got one: the enormously popular and beloved anime series or movie that they just didn't fall in love with like everyone else. Our critics confess theirs, and we're dying to hear yours! ― This question can be tough to answer: what's the one beloved anime masterpiece, the show or movie or OVA or whatever it is where you feel like you're the only person who just doesn't get it and didn't fall...
The Eclipse Spirits arc remains lackluster in its finale, but the rest of the filler episodes on these discs are pretty funny as Fairy Tail indulges in some lighter fare before things get serious next set. ― It's the little moments that make this set of episodes, which finishes up the Eclipse Spirits storyline and then embarks on a series of one-off episodes (plus a two episode mini-arc), none of whi...

How well do YOU remember the anime of the 1990s? Here are 10 more classic shows - but can you recall them all? ―
The Spring 2016 season rolls along and while Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress hangs on to its #1 position in the cumulative rankings, there's a new challenger to the #1 spot in the weekly chart! ― Our team of reviewers are following 24 anime series of the Spring 2016 season and readers are rating each episode as the reviews go up. So let's have a look at what ANN readers consider the best (and worst) o...
Despite some frustrating aspects, this second series is, overall, a slight improvement on the first. ― With nine months in between its first and second parts, Date A Live II is more a second series than a second season. Either way you look at it, it is still a direct continuation, one which assumes intimate familiarity with earlier material and provides recap only in bits and pieces. Hence I do recom...
Famous mangaka for series like Death Note can be famously withdrawn from the public eye, rarely granting interviews or even pictures. What's with that? ― Federico asks: Why in recent years are manga artists so obsessed with privacy, to the point we know next to nothing about them? Decades ago they had no problem in being interviewed, filmed, photographed, and mostly anyone who was interested in thei...
Eden of the East made a huge splash back in 2009, but how well has its techno-thriller storyline aged? James checks out Funimation's fancy new special edition. PLUS: this week's new releases! ― As amusing as I find Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto, I'm increasingly convinced that I'm primarily watching it as an excuse to enjoy its opening theme once a week. It's cool, cooler, coolest. Before we dive ...
Mike tries out the flashy shonen cooking action of Food Wars, but an enticing aroma leads him further to Oishinbo, the series that really catapulted food manga into popular consciousness. Let's eat! ― I've spent the last couple of weeks commuting back and forth to the library, in pursuit of a particular manga series. You may remember, from my Monster Girl Hoedown column, that I'm quite fond of levera...

There comes a point during growing up when you begin to understand that last...
