Zombie: A Love Story

Two new reviews on the plate for everyone! First up because I am going in alphabetical order is AC‘s review of Appleseed: Ex Machina. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel as a high-octane cyberpunk action flick, but it gets in and does its thing well, and could even be considered better than the original. Meanwhile, Kylaran takes a look at Sankarea, a romance between boy and zombie girl. The original material isn’t all that compelling, but Studio Deen squeezes every drop of potential from the story that it can with strong animation and good use of color to heighten mood.

And for those of you following the currently airing Eureka 7 AO, Reckoner wrote a post on it where he’s not that pleased about how the series has developed. Check it out!

    I watched Appleseed Ex Machina a while ago after watching the first one (due to the review on this site), and I actually preferred the first one I believe… can’t remember why exactly, perhaps it was the plot.

    As for Sankarea… I disagree with the review as a whole, but I appreciate some of the points made. Still, each to their own.

    Appleseed’s plot was more towards the moral predicament that exists between humans and non-humans, which in a way is kinda banal because such themes are already too common in sci-fi shows. Not to say that Ex Machina’s plot is any better — it’s just your straight-up Hollywood action movie — but perhaps a plot that tries to be philosophically deep is what I don’t really need in an action movie. It kinda kills the fun for me, sometimes~
