Now on Netflix, me and Noshi sat down to watch this 12 episode series that has been on my to watch list ever since 2011.And it was worth the wait for sure!When his classroom is attacked by a mysterious Red Man, Ganta, the only surviving student, is sentenced to death in the amusement park based prison Deadman Wonderland.  Here he has to try to survive in a series of cruel games, all for the amusement of the people.He soon learns he has a special power now just like all the other "deadman", in that he can use his blood as a weapon, an ability called Branch of Sin.  A mysterious girl, Shiro, takes a liking to him and protects him in jail, but soon he remembers he knew her as a child and that they had a special bond.In the prison a special project, called Wretched Egg, is being developped as well, and it seems Shiro is at the center of it for some reason, unknown to both her and Ganta.  While this project keeps developping, Ganta joins a resistance movement which tries to break out from the cruel

Love, Death + Robots

The newest thing on Netflix, and one I recommended to collegues and all, is this series compromised of small animation episodes.All standing loose of each other, and in a variation of styles, it contains some great episodes.While rated 18+ due to the odd boob left or right, the anthology always handles one of the three themes of the title.For me, the best episodes of the 18 long series, was Sonnie's Edge, Zima Blue, Beyond the Aquila Rift and best of all Good Hunting, featuring a Huli Jing and the transitition from the age of legends to the age of technology.Very enjoyable, these short episodes are truly worth the time to go through, and with the short and varied theme's and episodes, it never becomes a drag and before you know it, you've seen the whole series.A lovely find for sure!

You would think that finding matching colors for the hull and deck of the Super Battleship Yamato is a pretty straightforward exercise. Then again, I tend to overcomplicate things by overthinking solutions to problems arising out of extensive research. And so it was with the Yamato. Over the years there have been quite a few versions of this iconic anime spaceship. They can be largely grouped

Aired back in 2013, The Devil is a Part-Timer is based on a light novel of the same name, and is just an hilarious series.Because, if you where Satan, defeated and forced to flee to modern day Nippon, how would you rebuild your magic and status?  Of course, by starting to work at McRonald's and try to dominate the world from there...This results however in him creating friendship bonds, first and foremost with co-worker Chiho, but also with his sworn enemy who followed him here, the Hero of Ente Isla, Emi.  She just can't wrap her head around the fact that Satan is actually enjoying his time and tries to help people where he can, even going to public clean-ups.As they constantly confront and control each other, well, mostly Emi on Maou though, are being attacked by a few entities during their adventure and exploration together, but this only results in her getting more and more confused about the fact that the devil might not even have a plan at all, nor any ambition on returning to his home dimensi

Saintia Shou

Godly relief!In the same week that trailer came out for the horrific Netflix adaption of Saint Seiya, the newest anime in the franchise aired as well.And luckily, this is a lot more intresting, based on the manga who follow (more or less) the timeline of the original series.The Saintias are the hand maidens of Athena, and perhaps this is in one go my biggest gripe with the series.  You see, originally Saori didn't realise she was Athena until somewhere in the Silver Saint arc, but here she already is aware while still organising the Galaxian Wars.The story follows Shoko, a young girl born under a bad star and destined to become the host vessel for Eris.  however, at a young age she and her sister where saved by the intervention of Milo of Scorpio, and he did save her life even though that went against his orders.  Later on, the godess returns, but Shoko's sister instead sacrifices herself to protect her sister.  This leads to Shoko donning her sisters Equleus cloth instead, and set out to
