Afro Samurai: Resurrection

Here we go again. Or maybe not. After announcing an Afro Samurai sequel middle of last year, fans have been eagerly anticipating another over-the-top slashfest by the bad mutherfucker Afro in the movie sequel, Afro Samurai: Resurrection! But after seeing this sequel, I’m guessing those fans will just be better off watching again the original 5 episodes of Afro Samurai instead. The animation for this movie, like the original 5 episode series, is still excellent and top-notch. The big problem...

And that is exactly what you have here. Lots of zombies to kill...

Oct ’08 Anime Previews

Since Macross Frontier and Code Geass R2 has ended a while ago, I was looking for new anime to watch and fortunately, there was a lot of new anime that started their seasons this October. It’s still too early to say which anime is highly recommended or not since most of them are still in their early episodes but having watched some of these early episodes, I’ll just give you a short review of what to expect for each series....
