The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Oddity and Mediocrity

Today we have two very different kinds of anime for two distinct palates.  The first is a more refined dish with Toaru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku, a Madhouse Studios movie about aerial warfare.  Despite its regal furnishings, it can be quite dull as it contains a narrative that’s been served one time too many.  The second choice is a bizarre concoction picked from the brains of some real mad men and distilled into Popee the Performer.

You can also check out our coverage of Anime Expo 2012 on our blog, including Days 1 & 2, Days 3 & 4, and Chihayafuru’s creative team from Madhouse. More soon to come!
