The Girl Who Leapt Through Time: “Time Waits for No One”

Sean Wong (August 2, 2007)   2 Comments

What would you do if you had the ability to turn back time? Get to school earlier? Score better on a test? Or perhaps sing endless amounts of karaoke?
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is a story about Makoto Konno, your average (if not somewhat tomboyish) high school student. One day, after an […]

Tokyo Godfathers Movie Review

Sander Cohen (July 5, 2007)   No Comments

Tokyo Godfathers is the story of a not so ordinary group of homeless in Tokyo. United by common misfortune, three bums and an abandoned baby learn about life, truth, and family. A man who abandoned his family, a homosexual who wishes to be a mother, a child runaway, and a foundling may not be a conventional family, but with love and luck they may make it work.

Ninja Ryukenden Anime Movie Review

Darren Pangan (June 13, 2007)   2 Comments

I watched this movie a couple of years ago but I watched it again just for the sake of writing this article. I bought this video from a friend but I didn’t have any idea what it was all about. Honestly, I just liked the title because it has the word ninja and I expect anime with ninjas to have good action and fighting scenes. Well, it turned out that this movie was far from what I was expecting but I still enjoyed watching it.

Whisper of the Heart: Slice of Life, Studio Ghibli style

Milly Schaefer (June 5, 2007)   2 Comments

Whisper of the Heart by its name alone sounds like the kind of movie that women gather to see armed with boxes of tissues. But though love is certainly a topic — and certain elements sound suspiciously like something that belongs in a Hallmark movie — Whisper is no tear-jerker. It’s a human coming-of-age story.

Ninku The Movie Review

A couple of years ago, I bought this video that contained two movies. One was “Ninku The Movie” and the other was “The Golden Seal”, which is a YuYu Hakusho movie. In this article, were going to talk about the former. Back then, I didn’t know about the anime Ninku.

Blood: The Last Vampire - Oh Saya…

Melissa Alba (May 13, 2007)   1 person had his say

If you enjoy action, drama, and supernatural elements, you’ll like this movie. And if you were a fan of Buffy: the Vampire Slayer, you’re in for a treat! Though, after watching this, the real slayer is Saya. Of course, if you’re like me, and love a “bloody” movie, this should also be up your alley. […]

A Look Back at one Great Anime Movie: Princess Mononoke

Darren Pangan (February 6, 2007)   No Comments

I’ve seen this movie just recently but I’ve heard about it a long time ago. I’ve heard great reviews and whenever people make their list of their favorite anime movies, Princess Mononoke has to be in that list, up until now. So what held me back all this time from watching this movie? It’s […]

Ninja Cadets! Anime Movie Review

Darren Pangan (January 23, 2007)   No Comments

There’s one thing I noticed about anime series or movies that have ninjas. Most of them (but still not all) have awesome fight scenes. Maybe because ninjas are really cool characters. They’re fast and use a lot of weapons including magic. That’s one of those things people like about Naruto. But I’m not going […]
