Teaser for new Ghost in the Shell animated movie

Teaser for new Ghost in the Shell animated movie
A teaser has emerged for a new animated Ghost in the Shell feature film from Production I.G. Commemorating 25 years of Masamune Shirow manga, the film is set to be released in Japan later this summer. The teaser is but a mere 30 seconds, with no dialogue and no plot elements. However, given the talent involved there is speculation that it could be a continuation of the Arise series. The official site explains that secrets behind Public Security Section...

Robotics;Notes part 2 review

Robotics;Notes part 2 review
It was already made pretty clear from my review of Robotics;Notes part 1 that I was less than impressed with how the series set itself up. Just as a miniature recap to provide some context, I found the story to be a spider web of many different storylines that were hard to keep track of and understand. There were already plenty of unanswered questions and I feared that the plot holes would grow larger and larger. Despite my many disappointments,... 

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet review

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet review
Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet: the mecha, sci-fi anime that I didn’t actually need to be so sceptical of. Of course, it came naturally: from previous reviews, you can probably get a sense of my opinion on sci-fi and big robots and the likes. Safe to say it’s not a positive one. However, I was delighted to find that Gargantia had far more to offer than the endless outer space pew-pew battles that I was expecting. What I found instead... 

Attack on Titan Part 1 TITAN sized Blu-ray review

Attack on Titan Part 1 TITAN sized Blu-ray review
It is one of the most anticipated anime releases of the last few years, where the mere mention of its name can cause a room full of people to stand up, scream and go crazy. I am of course referring to Attack on Titan and thanks to Manga Entertainment, UK fans can now get their hands on it. The synopsis tells us that several hundred years ago humanity was all but exterminated by a race of giant creatures called Titans. The surviving members of the... 

Psycho-Pass complete series review

Psycho-Pass complete series review
In a highly advanced Japan where monitoring criminal activity has become somewhat an obsession, Psycho-Pass displays a fast paced, exciting and often twisted story of cat and dog chasing like no other. In this heavily controlled world, the citizens of Japan are labelled and judged by the Sibyl System based on the colour of their ‘hue’ and ‘Crime Coefficient’. The ‘hue’ is used to determine the mental state of an individual. When compared... 

Robotics;Notes part 1 review

Robotics;Notes part 1 review
I have to begin by getting my main opinion out the way first; the highly anticipated Steins;Gate successor, Robotics;Notes… was a letdown. The opening of the story was nothing short of mediocre. It had me worrying for the first few episodes that I really was in for just another high school ‘save our beloved club!’ anime. And although the plot took a few unexpected paths towards different and admittedly, very unique ideas, it just wasn’t executed...

Along with the live action US adaptations of Akira and Death Note, Ghost in the Shell has been stuck in development for a number of years. However, it has recently shown signs of life, with DreamWorks having settled on director Rupert Sanders to helm the project. His previous debut feature film was Snow White and the Huntsman. It’s reported that Sanders will be working from an entirely new script by William Wheeler (writers Jamie Moss and Laeta...
