This week, Bobcat and Burkion look at Origin: Spirits of the Past, a requested review from friend of the show Flaktrap.
In a post apocalyptic future, it’s technology versus a biological hivemind for the future of the planet. Only one unlikely hero, chosen as the representative of the hivemind, can defeat the coming technological genocide.
… I know what you’re thinking, but this came out years before James Cameron’s Avatar.
In this episode, Bobcat and Burkion look at the show Squid Girl (also known as Invasion Squid Girl, depending on which localization you look at). Squid Girl is the story of a young girl with a squid on her head and her goal of subjugating the human race. Did we have a taste for calamari, or did we toss it back?
In this episode, Bobcat and Burkion tackle a shounen ai show. Gravitation is the story of two young men trying to make it in the cutthroat world of J-Pop, and the budding (?) romance between one of the band members and an emotionally distant and abusive novelist. Did this series draw us in, or did it plummet to Earth at a rate of 9.8 meters per second squared?
Oh boy! A studio Ghibli movie based on the famous and beloved Earthsea fantasy series. Is this meeting of two great things like chocolate and peanut butter, or chocolate with battery acid?
… well, the fact that it got a mere 46% on Rotten Tomatoes and won two Japanese Raspberry Awards for Worst Director and Worst Movie should give you some idea. How did such a great combination go so wrong? Watch to find out!
Bobcat and Burkion return to review the sci-fi series Heat Guy J, from the creator of The Vision of Escaflowne. In a distant(?) future, an android named J fights crime. Did we like it, or were we left cold?
This time, Bobcat and Burkion review a cute anime based on a teenager who thinks she’s six years old thanks to horrific brain damage. Does the concept work, or will you want to bludgeon yourself back to the first grade to forget it?
