Anime Review: Nekomonogatari White (2013) DVD/Blu-Ray Combo

Posted by Retrokaiser On Friday, September 26, 2014 0 comments

"Nekomonogatari White" is the first volume of the second season of the "Gatari" series. This show is an animated supernatural show typically about the life of a half-vampire named Araragi. This volume however centers around the character, Hanekawa and her life could be a bit better right now as on one fine day while on her way to school she runs into none other than the wanderer, Hachikuji (you may remember her from the "Mayoi Snail" arc during "Bakemonogatari").  Hanekawa and Hachikuji have a simple conversation and after that we have Hanekawa on her way and then she walks into something very strange.... A giant talking white Tiger (my word).  Hanekawa doesn't think much of it and continues her day only to find out later on that her house has burnt down to a crisp. Without a house we see Hanekawa crash at the old school building where we have seen Araragi battle demons many times before. During the middle of the night we see that she is visited by a very saddened Hitagi (Araragi's sweet girlfriend) whom was worried that Hanekawa had gone missing. Long story short, Hitagi invites Hanekawa to crash at her place while her father is gone as to which she accepts. While resting at Hitagi's place we see that some of Hanekawa's old demons are starting to haunt her again (quite literally) but this time she isn't as harmful but the giant talking white Tiger is and now it is up to her to stop it.

DVD Review: Case Closed, Season Two (1996 - 1997)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Saturday, September 20, 2014 0 comments

"Case Closed, Season Two" is an animated crime/mystery drama show with comedic elements. This show is about a teenaged detective genius named Jimmy Kudo... Or at least he used to be. After witnessing something he shouldn't have seen he got poisoned but instead of dropping dead from this liquid bucket kicker he ends up turning back into a little kid. For protective reasons he is now going under the name of Conan Edogawa so that the bad guys won't track him down or hurt the people he cares about. Conan is also now living with his childhood friend, Rachel Moore and her alcoholic father, Richard Moore. Richard Moore isn't only a great drunk but he is also an alright detective but sadly he isn't good enough to solve the crimes that he is stuck with so Conan secretly helps him by planting clues when he figures something out only for Richard to take the credit for everything (man, what a Richard). Some of the situations you will see the gang appear in includes: Solving the brutal murder of a professor during a trip to the mountains, tracking down a missing library clerk, Conan going on a treasure hunt, and Conan getting kidnapped by a guy he dubs "Mr. Freaky Face". All this and many more investigations and adventures in this mysterious ("mysterious" used in a way to build up my review) second season. (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Friday, September 19, 2014 1 comments

"Guardians of the Galaxy" is an sci-fi action comedy film based off the Marvel comic book series of the same name. This film starts off in the year 1988 where we see a kid named Peter Quill sitting in a hospital listening to a mix-tape his mother had made. The reason why he is in the hospital is because his mother is suffering from cancer and is on her deathbed. His mother ends up passing away and leaves him very sad so he runs out crying (understandably so). While he is outside he gets taken by a huge spaceship and then we jump forward twenty-six years later to the year of 2014 A.D. AKA this year that we are currently living in.  Peter has grown up and is now a space treasure hunter going under the nickname of Star Lord (played by Chris Pratt). Star Lord is going through some ruins and battles some small "Space Dinosaurs" and comes across a special item. Star Lord isn't alone as he is attacked by some weird warriors but Star Lord manages to escape. Those weird looking warriors end up being the men of an evil being known as Ronan the Accuser (played by Lee Pace) and he is mad as he needs that item to give to his leader named Thanos (yes, that Thanos) and sends out Thanos' adopted daughter, Gamora (played by Zoe Saldana) to retrieve the item. (More about what this film is about plus the rest of the review can be found by clicking the "Read More" button).

DVD Review: Digimon, Season One (1999 - 2000)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Friday, September 12, 2014 1 comments

"Digimon, Season One" is an animated adventure show that starts off with a group of kids that just arrived at summer camp. The children are: Tai (An excellent soccer player that likes wearing goggles), Matt (One cool dude that loves blowing on his harmonica), T.K. (Matt's younger brother), Sora (A tom girl that's very brave), Mimi (A very spoilt girl in a pink cowboy hat), Izzy (A young computer mastermind), and Joe (A very over-concerned guy that simply hates getting into trouble). Not too long after starting summer camp we see the children meeting up with each other only to meet with a sudden weather change as it starts to snow. The group are confused to what is happening but then out of nowhere we see some very mystical devices appear before them and then drag them into a dimensional portal. Once the group wakes up they are surprised yet again as they are met by a group of mysterious creatures named Digimon (short for Digital Monsters). They soon learn that there are many different kinds of Digimon and not too long after they are attacked by a huge giant bug-like Digimon named Kuwagamon. During the battle they learn that their Digimon can transform when they have enough energy but their power isn't enough to fully beat Kuwagamon and the children fall off a cliff due to Kuwagamon's attack and become lost. Meanwhile somewhere else in this mysterious Digital world we have a very evil Digimon named Devimon whom has learned of the kids and fears their power so he is out to destroy them and their Digimon. Who ever said summer vacation was supposed to be fun? (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

Blu-Ray Review: Psycho-Pass Collection Two (2013)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Sunday, September 7, 2014 0 comments

"Psycho-Pass Collection Two" contains the final half of this season of this animated science fiction crime series. This show is about a detective named Akane Tsunemori who is in charge of leading a group of detectives known as "Enforcers" who are former criminals themselves as they believe the best way to catch criminals is to use criminals themselves. After solving a series of brutal crimes they find out that they were all part of a plan of criminal mastermind named Shogo Makishima. Turns out those brutal crimes were just the start as Shogo has invented a helmet that has the capabilities to let people do terrible things in public without being struck down by the law. Chaos spreads quickly as more and more people buy the helmet but the good citizens aren't willing to let them take over so they start to fight back in a style that's just as barbaric. While this might sound like that the world is coming to the end, this is only "phase one" of Shogo's plan as he has much darker stuff planned. How will our gang of dics to put a stop to this madness? Even if they do manage, they might end up regretting that decision as there's something terrifying in their HQ will change the way you think about this show (no, it isn't anything silly like a hybrid monster lovechild of Godzilla and Mr. Bean).
