Great for a source of titles of unknown and forgotten anime that you might want to check out.
15 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really don't know what to say about this show. It's awful. I've never seen a guy who really hates anime actually try to act like he does like anime. And it's kind of sorry. I mean this guy, Bennett whoever. His reviews are nice I guess for just seeing certain unknown anime titles I never knew existed. Well some I did know existed, like Wicked City, Golgo 13, Akira etc.

Mostly it's lame nitpicking of things throughout these titles. It's rather stupid. And some of his problems come down to personal problems he has with the Anime. Like his Golgo 13 review, which just is so lackluster and come down to him just having personal problems with the main character being the way he is. I mean sometimes, I do agree with him, I think Genocyber and Jungle De Ikkou he did. I could understand those. But most of the others, nope.

It's like some film school reject tried to review anime and act like a fan of it afterwards. It's really sad. Plus the man chickened out on reviewing Violence Jack like a fool. I don't get that. Especially since Discotek released the whole OVA now on DVD. The chicken needs to review it now and stop being a baby about it.

And how negative can this guy get about most anime? I mean with the exception of maybe 5 to 6 titles, he is relentlessly tearing into the anime he's got on there. And his Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie review was well, divisive, probably not going to get him any places of great appreciation in the anime community.

And even when he likes a title, he still tears into it like a jerk. I'm actually surprised this guy has a IMDb page. He's pretty forgettable and not famous or anything.
