Recca no honoo (1997)
An amazing anime!
Flame of Recca (known as 'Recca no Honno' in Japan) is a forty two episode anime television series which is based on a thirty-three volume, six thousand, four hundred and eighty page Manga series. The story follows Recca Hanabeshi as he wants to become a ninja and he is obsessed with them. He saves the life of a pretty girl named Yanagi Sakoshita from being crushed by steel pipes. Recca vows to be Yanagi's very own personal ninja (and he calls her his Princess.) Recca becomes friends with his rivals Domon Ishijima and Fuko Kirisawa. Recca soon finds out that he has a half-brother named Kurei and he kidnaps Yanagi so Recca and his friends must save her. They soon find out that they need to enter the Underground Death Tournament, and many battles ensures.
Flame of Recca is very similar to Yu Yu Hakusho so if you enjoyed one you will enjoy the other. Its a wonderful series I give it 9 out of 10.
A excellent series!
This is a excellent TV series that is based on the books by R.L. Stein. It originally ran for 4 seasons (74 episodes) from 1995 to 1998 and was filmed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Almost all of the episodes are based off the books with a exception for the episode "More Monster Blood". Many episodes are two part episodes but some are stand alone. My favorites are "The Haunted Mask" where a teen girl wants to scare to teen boys she knows so she buys a Halloween mask from a old costume shop and when she puts it on she can't get it off, and "Welcome to Dead House" where a family moves to a town called Dark Falls only to find out that the townspeople were killed by a nuclear power plant accident. I also enjoyed "One Day at Horrorland" where a family goes to a scary theme park.
Anyway, Goosebumps used to be my favorite series and i used to tape the episodes off TV and watch them, lol.
If you like scary stories aimed at teens them give Goosebumps a try. you might like it. I give it a 10/10.
I remember seeing the Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation on VHS when it was at my old video store. I liked the TV series, so i thought i would watch it.
I loved it. The story is hilarious (especially the Plucky/Hampton segments), The voice acting is great (something i always look for in animation), the characters were funny (Plucky and Mr. Stinky were my favorite characters) and it wasn't too long or short. (it's only 73 minutes). The version I saw was on VHS. It wasn't until 20 years later that Warner brothers released it on DVD (it was also released on Laserdisc) and is the only Tiny Toon Adventures media piece to do so.
The only gripe is that Warner Brothers changed the cover art for the DVD release from the original VHS and Laserdisc releases.
If you enjoyed the TV series like I do, go out and buy this movie. I highly recommend it. 9/10 :)
Don't waste your time
All this film is is just a recap of the first twenty four episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion, plus the first fifteen minutes of Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion. It is however, re-dubbed with a few voice changes but other then that the script is the same from the TV series.
This movie does have some nice DVD extras though, including an Neon Genesis Evangelion Encyclopedia, an Audio commentary from English dub voice actress Amanda Winn Lee (who was also the English ADR director and English voice for Rei Ayanami), It also includes an in-depth Index of Characters, Angels, Evas & Terms, a nice Photo Gallery, original Japanese trailers, Japanese Production credits, an End of Evangelion Preview, Previews for other Manga Entertainment titles, a DVD Catalog, Fan Club Info, and Web Links. But only get this if you absolutely must complete your collection.
Saikikku Fosu: pazuru taisen (1997)
Super fun game!
This is a very fun puzzle game for the Playstation with the Psychic Force characters. It is sorta like Bubble Bobble. The characters are Chibi versions of the life sized versions. You have to line up colored balls and if you match those they disappear. There are nine stages per character. You unlock a picture every time you complete a stage. There is another game mode where you battle other characters. The game includes a second disc with animation clips and a photo gallery. You can also battle your friends too in Two Player Mode. There is an Anime FMV sequence (with a song sung by Hironobu Kageyama) with animation done by Taito (the creators of the Psychic Force series.) The music is catchy and fun to listen to. If you like anime puzzle games i highly recommend this game. I give it a 9 out of 10.
Chrono Trigger (1995)
Greatest RPG ever made.
Period. I love this game so much I can't even put words into it. The story is fantastic and the music is mesmerizing. I remember playing this when it first game out for the PlayStation 1 and I couldn't put it down. The game has Superb graphics (since it was released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System first in 1995.) Chrono Trigger has a time-traveling storyline that will take you into the past, present, and future. You get to meet new friends and enemy's alike. It was conceived by a RPG Dream-Team: Hironobu Sakaguchi (The creator and producer of the Final Fantasy series), Yuji Horii (The director and creator of the Dragon Quest series) and Akira Toriyama (The creator of the Dragon Ball series). So far it has been released on three different platforms: The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Playstation 1 and the Nintendo DS. IMO I think the Playstion 1 version is the best,(despite the slow loading times), There are a TON of extras to unlock in this version. I give Chrono Trigger a 10/10.
This movie is only good for two reasons...
The fact that two anime voice actors are in it, (Carol-Anne Day and Scott Roberts) and the music. I was really excited to see this because they are in it. This is a really bad movie with somewhat bad acting and doesn't have a good story. The story is long and boring with only a few good scenes in it. I thought it would be interesting that the two anime voice actors from Blue Water Studios were in it but apparently even that couldn't even save it. The music is catchy however. The story doesn't even make sense. It doesn't say why Malvolio was killed the first time, they just come out and say that 'He's back'. This is a supposed sequel to William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" but it's not worth it.
There isn't even any character development. I was actually happy for Violia when she got shot by Malvolio. I give this a 4 out of 10, only because of the two voice actors and the music and the somewhat OK story.
The Boys Club (1997)
This review contains spoilers! Read at your own risk! I remember seeing the trailer for The Boys Club on The Prevue Channel (now known as the TV Guide Channel) way back in 97' or 98' and I was VERY interested in seeing it. It wasn't until years later that i finally bought the DVD and boy am I glad that I did. The story is about three teenage boys who find a 'police officer' in their secret clubhouse. He becomes their friend however he is not who he says he is. I give this movie a 9 out of 10 (mainly because I wish you would have learned more about Kyle, Eric and Brad's parents but you just learn a little bit about Kyle's Dad (His mom is assumed to have passed away), and that Megan would have forgiven Kyle when Luke tried to get her to remove her top but I can see why she didn't. Also, you don't find out what happened to Jake (but it assumed that he died from blood loss.)
Anyways, The performances are great, the story is dark and gritty and it has a excellent soundtrack (those Canadian tunes will be stuck in your head for days.) I wish this movie would get re-released on Blu-Ray with a commentary track and new extras but that will never happen (as it's currently licensed by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment.) I very highly recommended this movie as it's great in both acting and story.
Yû yû hakusho (1992)
The Greatest Anime of All Time...
*This review contains spoilers!* Yu Yu Hakusho is a phenomenal series. If you like high quality action animation with a great story and cool characters (it has both beautiful guys and girls in it too! ;o)) then you should definitely get this series.
Yu Yu Hakusho was originally a 19 volume Manga series created by Yoshihiro Togashi and was published by Shueisha from 1990 to 1994. The Japanese anime version was animated by Studio Pierrot. FUNimation Entertainment bought the rights to the anime in 2002. (There is an Animax Asia English dub that was distributed in Asia that not too many people know about).
Yes, It is kinda lengthy (112 episodes but I love it) Yusuke is a delinquent who gets hit by a car trying to save a child, but he dies and comes back to life and is on the good side fighting evil, Yusuke makes new friends and enemies and has a Girlfriend (the beautiful Keiko (Kayko in the FUNimation dub) Yukimura. Yusuke's rival Kuwabara becomes his buddy, Botan the cute bubbly Pilot of the River Styx helps aid Yusuke in his adventures) There is also a feature length movie as well, so you might wanna pick that up as well. Just trust me when I say this is a awesome series.
