Bananya A review by Ducky With Valentine’s Day coming up [or recently passed as of the posting of this review, sorry folks! – Kevin], it seems like high time to talk about the one I love. No, not a pretty bishounen boy, not a homosexual ice skater, not a muscle-bound shounen hero....

Yuri!!! on Ice

Yuri!!! on Ice by Jack Allistar Let me get this out in the open: I am not the target audience for this show. I do not like sports anime. I do not like implicit homoerotic anime, and I especially do not like homoerotic sports anime. Free! bored me to tears from the first moment that one...

Fatal Fury: The Moti...

Fatal Fury : The Motion Picture By Evan O. I had high expectations for Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture. The first Fatal Fury OVA, Legend of the Hungry Wolf, showed some promise but was ultimately crippled by its less-than-an-hour runtime. Fatal Fury 2: The New Battle made improvements in every...

Osomatsu-san By Jack Allistar If somebody told me that Princess Knight or Astro Boy was getting a comedy-based reboot, I would shoot that messenger so fast they’d cry bullets. As a rule, I tend to avoid reboots, especially of cartoons. Right now, we’re finding ourselves in an era...
