Wicked City

December 31, 2013

(**Warning – This review is a tad more not safe for work then my average review. You have been warned**) Wicked City is a 1987 Madhouse film directed by one of anime’s living legends, Yoshiaki Kawajiri. Never heard of him? Well that’s probably because the types of films he makes are a hard sell these days. Ultraviolent, hypersexual, […]

Eeeper’s Choice Podcast

February 4, 2013

Recently I had the honor and the privilege to be a guest on the Eeeper’s Choice Podcast. We discussed in great detail my favorite Yoshiaki Kawajiri anime, Cyber City Oeda 808. This was the most fun I’ve had since the last time I was on a podcast (Otaku in Review podcast)!! I do hope you check it out, as it’s just […]

Who is That and Why Should I Care #8 – Inspector Meguis

March 5, 2012

I just started watching Birdy the Mighty: Decode on Funimation’s streaming site the other day. I remember hearing about this show before it even aired, and being excited about it. I really liked the original OVA, directed by none other than Yoshiaki Kawajiri. But somehow this show got pushed back and back in my “stuff to buy” […]

Biohunter

February 25, 2012

This is an anime that starts off like so many others, with a boob eating a man’s hand. The boob literally grew teeth and started chomping on this man’s hand. How cliche. Ok I lied. This scene will stay with you years after you’ve forgotten the rest of the film. Dennis Paoli, the writer of Re-Animator once said “Any […]

Vampire Wars

February 22, 2012

I genuinely, non-ironically enjoyed Vampire Wars. That doesn’t mean I can’t laugh a little at it when it’s being dumb, but I found this to be an enjoyable anime. They’re gonna take away my critics license for this review, I am sure. But I sincerely enjoyed this little OVA from 1990 that Toei created. Sure by the […]

DVD Look: Demon City Shinjuku

January 28, 2010

I have a sneaking suspicion that Yoshiaki Kawajiri really likes John Carpenter movies. Because Demon City Shinjuku could be summed up as an OVA that mixes both Escape from New York and Escape From L.A. (despite being made after this OVA) together, has a little bit of Halloween thrown in there, and some has supernatural […]

DVD Look: Cyber City

December 14, 2009

Yoshiaki Kawajiri has directed a number of titles, but I think perhaps this is my favorite so far. Kawajiri is famous for directing Ninja Scroll, the Highlander anime, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust and a number of other titles over the years. Once upon a time he had quite the fan following the US, but now […]
