About Jake_o:

I am a lover of Anime and truly believe that there is an Anime out there for everyone you just have to find it…that’s what I hope to do for you, introduce Anime you may not have heard about and try and get you in touch with an Anime that you will love ^_^

lol I look at Dark Hero Grammar Red’s about info then at mine….I feel inadequate.

Here is a little of my anime background

About Dark Hero Grammar Red:

<will insert epic pixel art of my alter-ego here>

Hey all, I’m the (now)official co-admin of this blog. I’m the editor and apparently a grammar nazi (hence the name and props to whoever understands the multiple references within said name). Anyway I’ll be posting about some various animes as well.

Let’s see, I’m a 21 year old female(not that you all need to know that) and I’ve been watching anime since I was in elementary school and started collecting dvd’s when I was 13. My first anime dvd ever was the first Card Captors Sakura movie (which of course has a special place in my heart) and I’m now well past the 200 dvd mark. In case you’re curious, #100 was FF:Advent Children (which isn’t technically anime but I count it anyway) I also collect manga(also well about 200 volumes) and play a ridiculous amount of video games. I’ve also been doing pixel art for 7 years and I often pixel anime/video game characters, so I will shamelessly plug my deviantart in case you want to check it out.

I’ll be giving reviews on full series and movies as well as some first impressions for things coming out recently that aren’t finished yet. If it catches my interest I will also give a full in depth review once it has been completed. I will try not to be bias but sometimes I can’t help it especially when I really adore something. Unlike our beloved jake_o I like the scoring system so you will see a score for various attributes of an anime. I will be scoring on: plot, characters, art, flow, and music to create the overall score. I will also post a general opinion section at the end for my personal opinion on a series. I will also post a Re-watch Factor where I will tell you whether I feel the series/movie/etc. is worth watching more than once.

I can’t make any promises to how often I will be posting but I hope to do something at least once a week unless I get too caught up in work/school/life. I may have to create a bunch to have some backups when that happens I guess. I will promise to check this repeatedly to post replies though.

About Hassher

It’s Jake_o’s fault I’m here today giving out my well afforded opinion on anime I watch.

I like anime in all it’s forms; romance, action, adventure, supernatural, mech, although I don’t think you will ever catch me watching shounen-ai, or yaoi. I also spend a lot of my time reading manga, more so then I watch anime. So I will be adding in manga reviews.

My favorite animes so far are Spice and wolf, Code Geass, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumia, and XXXHolic.

And about myself I’m a 20 year old guy working at a computer help desk in the marine corp. I spend all my free time reading manga, watching anime, or playing video games. I didn’t really start getting in to anime until my tech school in the middle of the desert I had nothing better to do and started getting in to anime despite all the teasing I gave my friends about them watching it.

So here I am about to do reviews on something I used to make fun of 🙂 quite the turn around.

Your very own,


About this blog:

I plan on posting up a review at least two to three times a week along with a link to a legal sight where you can watch the Anime.

Review: This will be a post about an Anime that is already complete it will include information about the story, animation/art, music, characters, and an overall assessment which will include who i think may like the Anime.

Recommendations: These is going to be for and Anime that is still ongoing. Recommendations for new Anime will only show up after about 6-7 episodes have shown just so that I have an idea of what the Anime is about and who might enjoy it. (starts soon)

Previews:  This section will be info that i can find on anime coming out in the next season. This will include any videos, a summary of what it will be about, and some of the cast. I try and post a new one everyday that I am not writing up a review.

First impressions: This will be after an episode or two of the new anime that come out. I will post up what has started, where I think its going, what I hope happens, and will give a score on how it started (this will be based on how original they start off, a 1 means it is been done to much and there is no originality, a 3 means there is some originality but still sticking with what is safe,  and a 5 means the anime is starting off with a completely original idea.)

Manga Reviews: Most of these will come from Hassher so until he posts something I cant tell you what it will include….it will be a surprise for all of us…

Well that’s all for now. Please come back often as there is almost always something new. ^_^

About how to contact us:

If you have a recommendation for an anime or anything else shoot an e-mail to me at or leave a comment below ^_^

Dark Hero Grammar Red:
<to be added>  I will make an email address specifically for this so once that’s done I’ll post this for all

    Ok jake, I’m gonna take you up on your offer that everyone has an animae. Because I do want to keep an open mind.
    My stats: sex and gore do not bother me one bit. BUT I get a little bothered if I start to think that the japanese people are abandoning their traditions and selling themselves out to the american way of life.’

    I love old school samirai flix, and realistic animation. I own every episode of Voltron. (that’s a Japanes animae, before animae become popular.)

    What have you got for me? I await your wisdom O great Sensei

      ok, i have to ask as a point of reference, did you like voltron a lot, a little, or not at all?

      also, just so i can narrow down the choices, what type of movies/books do you like the most? (genre wise, E.X. thriller, drama, horror, ect.) I have like 1000’s of anime to sift through so trying to find the one for you will be easier if you can answer those two questions and i can get you about 4-5 you may really like ^_^

    I Loved Voltron and even had action figures. (the lions not the cars) The movie genre is hard to answer because I like a lot. But mostly: Samurai/Martial art
    Tragic love and honor
    sci-fi and fantasy.
    Best sci-fi t.v. show is: Lexx
    See what I mean about this being hard to answer? I like anything that isnt a sappy predictable romance, or shallow plot. People often tell me I am hard core.

      ok so if you don’t mind older anime there was one called Gatchaman made in the early 70’s that has 105 episodes that a lot of people who liked voltron liked.

      as for others…humm,

      for samurai:
      Samurai Champloo was very good and you might like that

      for martial arts:
      i haven’t seen to many but…
      History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi was good

      Akagi – a psychological anime about Mahjong highly recommended by me
      Paranoia Agent – a psychological anime about a young boy named Shounen Bat
      higurashi no naku koro ni – very very good horror/psychological anime
      Chrome Shelled Regios – sci fi anime
      Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion – sci fi, Psychological anime, very good as well
      Umineko no Naku Koro ni – horror, Mystery that was made by the higurashi people
      and finally a movie that you may really like Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek

      top picks for you out of those:
      History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi
      Chrome Shelled Regios
      higurashi no naku koro ni (i give this one out to every horror/psycological lover and i have never heard a complaint about it yet…even those that dont like blood, and gore that much love this for some reason…)
      and Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek
      so cut it from nine to 5 lol but they are all good ^_^

      oh and thanks for the subscription ^_^

        hey great!
        Samurai champloon is one that a friend had also recommended to me before. Its in my netfix que already.
        I’ll watch these movies youv listed and let you know.

        I thought you would reccommend Samurai 7 as that one I hear is a remake of a popular classic samurai movie.
        Gatchaman sound interesting too. Take care!!, Sara

          03/03/2011 at 11:24 AM

          ya i have heard a lot about samurai 7 but i have yet to watch it….I didn’t want to recommend anything that i have not seen myself because there is no way of me knowing what it is about/ how closely it matches you.

    I am impressed that you know this much about anime! I don’t think I have ever even seen it. It seems cool, but what should I check out first?

    • Jake_o

      03/03/2011 at 1:23 AM

      have you ever seen Pokemon? if yes then you have seen an anime…^_^

      As for what you should watch that’s really up to what you like. Anime is like any other tv show or movie only mostly in japanese and cartoon animations. (not saying there cartoons in the English sense, just the only thing i could think of besides “animated”) There is a large variety out there. If you have know idea what you might like start with the basic categories and work from there. Action/adventure, comedy, drama/romance, and horror. Thats all i can tell you for now, if you want a few choices of some good anime just let me know what genres of movies/books you like and ill do like i did for lifewith4cats ^_^

    @gidget0728 Jake_o knows what he is doing! I’d take him up on his offer.
