Joker Game

It follows a new spy agency in Japan before it enters World War II, and it involves eight spy agents carrying out their various missions. Now that is a cool story anime and the only problem I see with this anime is its length. It was too short. I wanted more!!! The story was far from simple and so it needed more episodes, but it was still complex engaging and an absolute thrill ride from start to finish. I smile at the end of every episode because of the solid writing from the show. It’s just clean and concise, and it’s a pretty rare thing to come by nowadays. Continue reading

Superheroes, Kaijuu, Super Sentai. All 3 have been long cherished by comic book guys and nerds alike around the world. But what if they were real?

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders

The first season of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is truly epic. It’s not like your typical shounen anime where the story drags on too long and feels like its overstaying it’s welcome. The first two arcs seriously felt like an epic. Not like it’s overly awesome, I mean epic as in Beowulf vs Grendel. It’s really about a story of heroism and amazing manliness in the pages of a manga. The anime captured the appeal wonderfully as you witness Jonathan and Joseph Joestar duke it out with a bunch of immortal vampires. Continue reading
