She’s burning Steamlight! – REDLINE

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

There’s something to be said about works that put animation above all else. For a visual medium like anime, the quality of the animation can make or break a production. REDLINE, the subject of this review, took seven years to meticulously animate.

She’s president of the Student Council! – Seitokai Yakuindomo

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

In terms of comedy anime, it’s not difficult to get a few chuckles, especially with sexual humor. A pantyshot here, a boob grab there, and voila: Humor. However, it’s tougher to get genuine laughs. It takes more than just a few pervy details to come up with something hilarious.

She’s a butler! – Mayo Chiki!

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

Studio Feel has recently come into much fame among the anime community (Especially ecchi and harem fans) for its recent work on Kissxsis and Yosuga no Sora. This being the case, their most recent venture, Mayo Chiki!, has a lot to live up to.

She’s won the Best Couple contest! – Amagami SS

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

It’s not often that an anime comes around that revolutionizes its genre, not in the sense of a deconstruction or a subversion, but in the sense of truly doing something new. Though there have been anime since that have utilized the same nuances, Amagami SS really put arc-based harem anime on everyone’s radar.

She’s joined the A-Laws! – Gundam 00 Second Season

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here for a fresh review!

From time to time, a series catches you off-guard, in a big way. The issue comes when the series is a sequel, or part of a franchise, and ends up rocking the boat in such a way. Those following the franchise get blindsided by the differences. Those who would like the new developments, but aren’t already following the franchise, become a tentative, questionable audience.

The series I have today was one series that caught me off-guard. The anime is Gundam 00 Second Season.

She’s a cyborg! – Gunslinger Girl

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

Sometimes, you watch an anime that you realize you should’ve watched a long time ago. An anime that you so thoroughly enjoy, you wonder why it’s taken you so long to finally sit down and watch it. For me, this was one of those anime.

She’s against fighting inside a colony! – Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

People who grew up like I did will remember how, as a kid, war was cool, especially so when it involved giant robots. We dreamed of growing up and becoming the most badass ace mech pilots. The anime I have today focuses on a kid just like many of us were, which makes it all the more gripping.

She’s joined the Black Knights! – Code Geass

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

There are many anime that try to be several things at once. Martian Successor Nadesico, for example, tries to be a harem series, a real robot series, and a space opera all at once (Among other things). It’s not an easy thing to pull off, but when an anime does manage to succeed, it’s all the better for it.

She’s joined Celestial Being! – Gundam 00

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with a fresh review!

Taking Gundam out of the Universal Century is a difficult thing to do well. Views are mixed about series such as Gundam Wing and Gundam SEED. They’re series some people may enjoy, but some people may despise, and Gundam 00 is no different.
