Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

So I kind of haven’t done the Epic Fail Award segment in a long time, so it’s time to bring it back from the shadows. So your probably wondering who is going to get the EFA this time around, well here he is!!!!!! In this video we see YouTube user Richalvarez trying to lose weight with a Pokewalker!!!!! That’s right folks, a Pokewalker (A cross between a pedometer and a virtual pet). 

Now he claims that he was able to lose fifty pounds with the Pokewalker. However as you will see, he was able to lose the weight (not really, looks like he has a pillow stuffed under his Mario shirt LOL!!!!!!) but his Golbat was only able to increase in power by one level. Unfortunately, that is one of the main flaws of the Pokewalker in case you were wondering!!!!! Overall it is an interesting video but an absolute EPIC FAIL!!!!!!

And with that, this concludes another edition of the epic fail award. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.

Anime Reviews-R.O.D. Read Or Die (OVA)!!!!

July 15, 2010

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Now I know I haven’t done an anime review in a while, but I think that this is something worth talking about. In this review, we are going to take a look at the OVA that captured the minds, hearts, and books of anime fans and bibliophiles everywhere Read Or Die. Read Or Die is a series that focuses on an alternate world in which the British Empire has become a major superpower. But the main feature of the series is the British Library in which secures the empires future existence.

The main character of the OVA is Yomiko Readman (AKA:Agent Paper or The Paper), an avid bookworm who works for the British Libraries Special Operations Division. At the beginning of the OVA, Yomiko obtains a rare copy of a German book known as “die Unsterbliche Liebe (The Immortal Beloved)” from a local underground bookstore. Later she is attacked by Jean Henri Fabre, a clone of the famous scientist of the same name (Jean Henri Fabre-Wikipedia Article) attempts to steal the book. However he is unsuccessful in his attempt due to Yomiko’s powers as a paper master in which she is able to manipulate paper to help in certain situations.

It is after this we are introduced to Joseph Carpenter (AKA:Joker), the commander of the British Libraries Special Operations Division and Yomiko’s superior.  He meets up with Yomiko outside the bookstore in which he takes her to the British Libraries headquarters to brief her about her next mission involving the U.S. Library of Congress. Once at the library, we are introduced to Drake Anderson, a former American Soldier who now works for the Special Operations Division as a support operative and Nancy Makuhari (AKA:Ms. Deep), an operative who is able to pass thru solid objects by absorbing them through her body.

Now while Read Or Die has some interesting action scenes with the main characters, we also get some funny and interesting scenes as well. Some examples of these scenes include Yomiko shopping to her hearts content at all of Tokyo’s popular used bookstores, Yomiko and Nancy hanging upon the Statue of Liberty in New York or Drake getting upset over a clay pot, there are a ton of great scenes that makes Read Or Die a very interesting OVA to watch.

Overall Thoughts

Overall I enjoyed Read Or Die because this series absolutely captured my interests relating to books and how fantasy and reality are able to co-exist in a fictional world.

Final Verdict

As for my rating, I give Read Or Die (OVA) a 5 out of 5. Read Or Die is a great series for those of you who enjoy suspenseful anime and for those of you who have a strong passion for books. But overall this is a great series that any anime fan should have in there collection.

That’s all for now, and for those of you whether or not I will be doing a review of the TV series? The answer is yes, I will be doing a review of both the TV series and the manga’s in a future post. So stay tuned and until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.

Misc Stuff-Where I Have Been The Last Few Weeks!!!!!

July 11, 2010

anime-twins

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Now I know that most of you are wondering where the heck I have been the last few weeks? Well here is the reason or reasons why. For the most part, I am taking an eight week summer course which involves a lot of reading and writing responses and essays. Also between a hectic work schedule and that I have just resumed work on a science fiction novel, I haven’t had much time to come up with new posts for AFC.

I know that I have been slacking off on my duties, however I know that is not a feasible excuse for not updating the site on a frequent basis. But don’t panic, Anime Full Circle is not dead, at least not yet LOL!!!!!!! I hope to resume posting this week, so stay tuned everyone for some fresh content. And until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
