Detroit Metal City is a situation comedy about a nice guy getting into awkward situations because he moonlights as the lead singer of a death metal band. The setup sounds good, and the execution is better than funny--it's hilarious.
Eden of the East starts with a bang in the TV series, then
follows it up with two movies, the second of which ended up being a
prime example of what I call Fridge Rage.
RightStuf's obscenely cheap Holiday Sale is here again! We list some favorites among the even-larger-than-usual list of dirt-cheap anime to empty your wallet.
Summer Wars is a bit like a cross between Omoide Poroporo, a lighthearted Satoshi Kon film, and WarGames, and while it's not a perfect film it has quite a bit going for it.
Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works feels like a choppy video game in it's first act however once it enters the second act it starts feeling like an actual movie and I found it enjoyable. There are still huge gaps in the plot but it does a few things better than the TV series that came before it.
Brighter Than The Dawning Blue fit my criteria of being on sale and having blue in the title, but apart from a few tweaks on formula and one really random detour toward the end it's a forgettable show.
