Burn Up

Published by:

Burn Up is a cop comedy similar to a buddy cop movie like Lethal Weapon and Bad Boys. The only difference is a female team of cops is the lead.

Burn Up is a one hour OVA about three cops, though it seems like two cops and an assistant. Maki, Reimi and Yuka definitely don’t look like cops since they’re stuck on desk duty and they’re actually traffic patrol cops. Things change when Yuka gets kidnapped by a white slave trade operation and Maki and Reimi jump in to action in their skin tight armor and tanks. Continue reading

Needless

Published by:

Needless is a show I bypassed when it came out but decided to give it a chance recently. Not even sure why I bypassed it before since dystopian future type of stuff usually draws me in.

The story takes place in a future where a Third World War has taken place. A war that has brought worldwide chaos and also creates room for a new species known as Needless. Needless are humans who have contracted a ‘disease’ that allows them to wield new powers that mankind could only dream of. They’re able to control gravity, telekenesis, adapting, elementals and several other powers that you only see in comic books. Continue reading

Published by:

Onegai Teacher and Onegai Twins has a lot of carryover in characters. In both series, the main protagonist is put in a situation which is seemingly impossible but of course he figures out what he has to do. It is TV afterall and not real life where things never go as planned.

One Punch Man (Wanpanman)

Published by:


One Punch Man is the show that seemed to quietly sneak up on people. I, myself, gave up on the show after an episode or 2 but when I kept seeing it trending on Twitter and everyone talking about it, I just had to get back in. Though it took someone saying One Punch Man was his Food Wars. Food Wars is the show that I described as one that I didn’t want to watch but something kept drawing me back in.

Yes, as the name suggests, there’s a man and one punch involved. He can win any fight in one punch basically and that’s what caused me to stop watching BUT there is much more to the show than that. Saitama the main protagonist becomes bored with his super ability and the lack of recognition that he gets for saving humanity. This starts his search for a more normal life until he meets a Cyborg named Genos who sees his as some kind of god. Continue reading

Lances N’ Masques (Ransu Ando Masukusu)

Published by:


Where do I begin with this one. It’s a typical story of a maiden in distress, kind of. A little girl is saved by a kid who thinks he’s a knight. Of course this little girl looks up to the knight and wants to marry him some day. The show is about the little girl’s daily life and the knight continuing to try to be her personal knight.

The characters in this show are horrible. Starting from the art, down to the personalities. Look at the characters, they all have the same egg like heads and the hair isn’t too much different either. It became hard to tell who’s who unless they had a REALLY different look. The personalities are just so cliched. There was not one character who stood out in the show as special or someone that you could truly root for besides the main character who you’re supposed to root for. Continue reading
