Kiki's Delivery Service Reveiw

Image
Original Review by:  AirCommodore  from Planet Anime story 6/10 Kiki’s Delivery Service  is, first and foremost, a children’s film. From the eighties. Also it’s a coming-of-age story, and unless those are done reeeeeeeally well, they can induce a hard-core snooze-fest. But hot damn, it eschewed all these possible pitfalls, and became one of the only  Miyazaki  films I actively like.

Psychic Wars Review

Image
Original Review by:  sothis  from Planet Anime story 1/10 *Dies laughing*. Oh dear lord... where to begin. Psychic Wars is easily one of the worst things I've ever seen, and only Baoh rivals it. When I say bad, I don't mean terrible Angelique or Wild Cardz unwatchable bad, I mean hilarious YOU MUST SEE THIS bad, like something you'd see on MST3K , but way funnier.

Vampire Knight Review

Image
Original review by:  VivisQueen  from Anime Planet story 7/10 On the face of it,  Vampire Knight   appears to be just another hackneyed shoujo series designed to cater to sexually frustrated fangirls. Firstly, you have the exquisite beauty of the entire male cast; not to mention the relentless ‘sucking' and ‘biting' and ‘sinking' of teeth into soft, yielding flesh; and finally, the fact that the characters spend more time nuzzling each other's necks in hopeless abandon than they do talking sensibly about their problems.
