The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Those who challenge the sun… and burn horribly

Hype keeps life interesting.  It’s a credulous and exceptionally optimistic view on something that doesn’t even exist yet.  If the object of one’s affection lives up to expectations then it becomes all the sweeter to be part of cheering team in the onset, but if it fails then the late nights spent analyzing every second of previews and religiously checking for up-to-date information on news sites are all for naught.

Sadly, the latter is my experience with Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and to a lesser extent, Black★Rock Shooter.
