The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Outer Space and the Underworld

Today’s two new reviews cover two anime quite different from one another. First, we have Houkago no Pleiades, a somewhat nonsensical sci-fi anime by industry veteran Gainax. Although the studio has created hits beloved by anime fans over the years,  it hasn’t quite seemed to recover its past glory, and this series doesn’t do much to inspire confidence in the studio’s. If you’re interested in moe anime though, this might be a show you’re interested in watching.

Our second review is Hoozuki no Reitetsu, the second anime by anime newcomer Wit Studio known for the first Attack on Titan anime. Hoozuki no Reitetsu is a somewhat dark (?) comedy that touches all the right spots, although its heavy basis in Japanese culture and language makes it a bit indecipherable for your average non-Japanese anime fan. It’s the polar opposite of our other review; not only is its main setting located in the Japanese underworld, but it’s also a lot more entertaining to watch.

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with
    experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a
    blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have developed
    some nice procedures and we are looking to swap techniques with other folks,
    why not shoot me an email if interested.

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
    you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I am really inspired along with your writing skills as well as with the
    format to your weblog. Is that this a paid theme or did you
    modify it your self? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is uncommon to look a great weblog like this one nowadays..

    few of your concepts!!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But just
    imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and
    videos, this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche.

    Superb blog!
