Movie March – Avengers Confidential Black Widow and Punisher

I’m not sure why but Marvel has made another Anime movie. The upcoming Toei Avengers Disk Wars TV series I can understand, that’s trying to move new toys in Japan using the Avengers brand, but I have no idea why they keep trying with the Studio Madhouse Anime’s. The four TV series have been terrible, …

Movie March – Fantasia

I have only one memory of Fantasia. Abject terror. I couldn’t tell you why, I watched it on VHS once when I was merely a toddler and so can’t remember anything about the film other than it has Mickey on the cover standing in a spotlight. I’ve not seen it since, partly because I’ve never …

Movie March – Wolf Children Ame and Yuki

If that titles sounds familiar, it’s because Anicom showed this film earlier in the year. The latest piece from Mamoru Hosoda, director behind the superb Girl Who Leapt Through Time (not to be confused with Girl Who Leapt Through Space, completely different thing) and later Summer Wars, expectations were through the roof. And then we …

Hello? Ah, I couldn’t see you there, over the Unseen Horizon. Yep, today’s Movie March installment is taking a journey into the delusional by covering the Chuunibyou movie. This isn’t the first Kyoto Animation movie I’ve reviewed this month, but unlike that I wasn’t really sure what to expect coming in. Would it be a …

Movie March – Dareka no Manazashi

And I thought trying to review a 13 minute movie was weird, but as it turns out I had an even smaller one sitting in the pile. Dareka no Manazashi (Someone’s Gaze for you English speakers… so all of you) clocks in at a mere 6 minutes 45 seconds, shorter than some songs I’ve listened …

Movie March – Psychic School Wars

Y’all know the Movie March drill by now. So lets talk about Nerawareta Gakuen, or Psychic School Wars to use a far more memorable and enticing name. Coming from Sunrise, a studio who’ve done a few anime series over the years, it’s based off a now over 40 year old book. Its had a bunch …

Movie March – Kick-Heart

I once had an argument over whether short movies could be called that. If its only 15 minutes long, then it’s hardly a film, at least to my reasoning. Certainly in anime terms you’d usually brand such productions as OVAs or ONAs. For those wondering where this ramble is going, today’s Movie March film, Kick-Heart, …
