One Piece Collection 7 DVD Review

Director: Konosuke Uda

Starring: Mayumi Tanaka, Colleen Clinkenbeard, Kazuya Nakai, Christopher R. Sabat, Akemi Okamura, Luci Christian, Kappei Yamaguchi, Sonny Strait, Hiroaki Hirata, Eric Vale, Ikue Ohtani, Brina Palencia, Yuriko Yamaguchi, Stephanie Young

Running Time: 650 minutes

Certificate: 12

Taking us into the land of Skypiea, this 7th collection of One Piece episodes, taking us from episodes 157-182, adds a new dimension to the usually water set saga. Although the water is pretty much just replaced with clouds, there are plenty of new dynamics, interesting beasts, and a world of religious intrigue, which all helps to prevent the series from getting stale..

The characters are once again split up, which does allow for a lot of individual character development. Best of all, this development usually presents itself in the fight sequences. Being an archaeologist, Robin is more concerned with her surroundings when fighting and the damage done to ancient relics. Choppers, as a doctor, »

One Piece: Strong World Blu-ray Review

25 June 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Munehisa Sakai

Starring: Mayumi Tanaka, Colleen Clinkenbeard, Akemi Okamura, Luci Christian, Kappei Yamaguchi, Sonny Strait, Kazuya Nakai, Christopher R. Sabat, Yuriko Yamaguchi, Stephanie Young, Ikue Ohtani, Brina Palencia, Hiroaki Hirata, Eric Vale, Cho, Ian Sinclair

 Running Time: 109 minutes

Certificate: 15

With One Piece: Unlimited World Red released on gaming platforms this Friday and One Piece: Strong World arriving on Blu-ray and DVD this upcoming Monday, it’s never been a better time to be a fan of Eiichiro Oda’s mange/anime. This is the first film released in the UK despite being a cinematic entry from 2009. This means that certain elements may be jarring for those who have been following the DVD releases of the series over the last year as we encounter characters not yet introduced in the dubbed run. Those who have kept up with the show in its original Japanese language will be more settled though. »

One Piece Collection 6 DVD Review

16 May 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Hiroaki Miyamoto, Munehisa Sakai, Junji Shimizu, Konosuke Uda

Starring: Mayumi Tanaka, Colleen Clinkenbeard, Kazuya Nakai, Christopher R. Sabat, Akemi Okamura, Luci Christian, Kappei Yamaguchi, Sonny Strait, Hiroaki Hirata, Eric Vale, Ikue Ohtani, Brina Palencia, Yuriko Yamaguchi, Stephanie Young

Running Time: 650 minutes

Certificate: 12

Like with any anime series following a huge arc, One Piece settles into a few smaller adventures during its sixth boxset. Each one makes a strong effort to be more than simple filler though, elaborating on characters or making sure the individual adventures are fun and engaging. This is leagues away from becoming anything even close to stale, which may be down to the general theme of exploring. Other animes seem to become bogged down in overcomplicating stories and having to add new elements, whereas One Piece has an entirely imaginative world to explore as our heroes make their way to their goal but become distracted by »

Dragonball Gt Season 2 DVD Review

18 March 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Minoru Okazaki

Starring: Stephanie Nadolny, Eric Vale, Elise Baughman, Andrew Chandler, Kyle Hebert

Running Time: 800 Minutes

Certificate: 12

After gathering an international following, spawning a lacklustre Hollywood film, and producing a trilogy of series’ totalling in 508 episodes, the Dragonball phenomenon finally draws to a close with Dragonball Gt Season 2.

After the first season ended with such an intense and climactic cliff-hanger, this second part very quickly deals with the events of Dragonball Gt’s action-packed first part. The story picks up after the destructive artificial intelligence known as ‘Baby’, managed to infect the world’s entire population (similar to Invasion Of The Body Snatchers) and migrate them to his new ’planet Tuffle’, leaving only Goku behind to save the human race and the entire galaxy. Goku soon realised that his new adolescent body would not be enough to stop Baby and his army of Tuffles and as a result gained »

One Piece Collection 5 DVD Review

12 February 2014 5:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Hiroaki Miyamoto, Munehisa Sakai, Junji Shimizu, Konosuke Uda,

Starring: Mayumi Tanaka, Colleen Clinkenbeard, Kazuya Nakai, Christopher R. Sabat, Akemi Okamura, Luci Christian, Kappei Yamaguchi, Sonny Strait, Hiroaki Hirata, Eric Vale

Running Time: 650 minutes

Certificate: 12

In terms of story, this 5th collection is the most ambitious yet. Picking up from where the last set left off, we now find Vivi and the Straw hat Pirates, in Vivi’s homeland where rain has not fallen for years. A conspiracy is uncovered that looks set to erupt in civil war if Vivi and the Straw Hats can’t put an end to a reign (or should that be rain?) of terror from the mysterious Crocodile A.K.A. Mr. Zero. Confidently setting character development and focus on the protagonists aside, One Piece once again shows how it can handle the more mature plot strands.

With a dark sense of tragedy throughout this very extensive arc, »

Dragonball Gt Season 1 DVD Review

20 January 2014 10:12 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Minoru Okazaki

Starring: Stephanie Nadolny, Eric Vale, Elise Baughman, Andrew Chandler, Kyle Hebert

Running Time: 787 Minutes

Certificate: PG

After the incredible and influential cult classic anime series Dragonball Z, finished its 291 episode run with a spectacular ending, it seems impossible for a follow-up show to match the quality of predecessor. And so I think it’s only fair that I start this review by stating that Dragonball Gt is not as good as Dragonball Z. However with that being said I should also state that Dragonball Gt is by no means a bad show and it’s actually very entertaining. As the third in a trilogy of anime shows that began Dragonball and Dragonball Z, this final entry in the franchise feels like the perfect closing chapter of Goku’s journey. With that in mind, no shame should be felt for not matching the outstanding quality its predecessor, after »
