Mike wonders aloud about what happened to all that ADV Films stuff that never made the jump from VHS to DVD. 2013-06-16
One of those blustery, everyone-
The Last of Us is about the thick skin we've built for ourselves and, underneath that, the places where we secret our hurt.
Underneath all the explosive polygons and proper nouns, Remember Me is a game that has no idea what it's actually about.
The ending of Jormungand has something important to say ... but never figures out the actual message.
Sunny is an interesting glimpse into the lives of children who feel that the world has forsaken them and how they manage to cope with the help of an old car and a little imagination.
Ultimately Missions of Love still reads like a sexy book for middle schoolers. Yukina is far from a likeable heroine, neither Shigure nor Akira come off as particularly desirable male leads, and the less savory elements of the story detract from its romance components.
