Linebarrels Of Iron is another anime entry in the ‘gifted youngster discovers power to battle evil’ genre, and to some this may sound like yet another retread. And although that is certainly true for some aspects of the show, it actually starts off as a very brave and complex show. Set in a world where giant mechs help to protect freedom from invading forces, we start our journey with Koichi, a downtrodden high school student. Koichi believes he has great power, but until that power shows itself he is quite happy to appease his bullies. The beginning starts with a very suspenseful sequence in which Koichi’s world and that of the mechs approach each other at a well-timed pace. »

Nightwalker The Complete Series DVD Review

18 July 2013 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Kiyotoshi Sasano, Yutaka Kagawa,

Starring: Takumi Yamazaki, Vincent Hatcher, Emi Shinohara, Jane Alan, Maaya Sakamoto, Dorothy Melendrez, Akira Ishida, Lex Lang,

Running Time: 300 minutes

Certificate: 15

Nightwalker arrives on DVD from 1998, not that you’d be able to tell from the visuals. It feels very much like a product from a decade earlier. Everything about it screams 1980s noir. From the cool opening music, to the feel of a detective story with a bit of a foggy and dark edge, there seems to be a real interest in paying homage to a bygone era. This tribute is a huge hindrance as the visuals may come across as nostalgic and retro, but the animation and stories are often painfully simple.

The show follows a vampire who runs a private detective agency. So far so good, but it soon devolves into your average monster of the week series that ignores any of the investigative elements. »
