The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Wrestling Robots

Hello, friends! We have two new reviews for you today. First up is Shadowmage‘s look at the twisty, turny mecha series Valvrave the Liberator. While it has pleasing aesthetics, enjoyment of the series hinges mainly on appreciation for its ridiculous and sense of shock and drama. Next on the docket, I take a look at the wrestling series Wanna Be the Strongest in the World. It is “strongest in the world” in title only — the wrestling is dull, the story placid, and the “sexy” bits either hilarious or groanworthy. Stay away from this show at all costs.

    Just one nitpick from the review:

    “Valvrave the Liberator is a giant robot anime from the creators of Code Geass”

    There is only one of the creators of Code Geass involved in Valvrave. The writer.

    The director and everyone else has nothing to do with it, so the review implies something inaccurate.

    The statement was based on the fact that Valvrave and Code Geass had the same writer and were both from Sunrise. I suppose it’s possible that there is absolutely no one from the Code Geass project in the Valvrave project aside from Okouchi, but I find it extremely improbable.

    What a information of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable
    familiarity on the topic of unexpected emotions.

    certainly like your website but you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very
    bothersome to tell the reality then again I will definitely come
    back again.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you
    could be giving us something informative to read?

    Of course, it is very difficult to describe the sound difference when adding reverb but again this
    is an additional to traversing to a music shop where you can actually listen to
    the keyboard sounds. Remember all of the promotion code because where there is a discount code required, the code will likely be displayed both
    with this Entertainment Book coupon page as well as in the type of a coupon pop-up.
    Each of these unique dancing has specific steps and options that build it different from different dances – however there’s one proven fact that is still
    constant throughout every kind of siltation.

    It wasn’t until Walt Disney produced the film Darby ‘Gill and the Small Men and
    women did Americans begin to associate leprechauns
    with the Irish and St. Patrick’s Day.
