2014 Anime

★★★★★ ★ 6/10


2010 Anime

★ 8/10

  • Vash the Stampede returned in a movie, action comedy Trigun: Badlands Rumble and was instantly on top form; this is satisfyingly more of the same.

★★★★★ ★★ 7/10


2008 Anime

★ 7/10


2007 Anime

★ 6/10

  • Vexille (6/10) proved an interesting and spectacular animation from the team and in the style of the 2004 CG Appleseed. Talking of Appleseed, the sequel itself, Appleseed: Ex Machina (6/10), is a good-looking CG anime with a slightly muddled bad guy.

2006 Anime:

★ 9/10

★ 8/10

★ 6/10

  • Japanese animation studio Gonzo delivered their first feature film with Origin: Spirits of the Past but it’s superb visuals and sonics were not backed up by an involving story.

2005 Anime:

★ 8/10


2004 Anime:

★ 8/10

  • Satoshi Kon baffled, intrigued and engrossed audiences with psychological crime drama Paranoia Agent.

★ 7/10

★ 5/10


2002 Anime:

★ 8/10

  • A sweet innocent lead character (Chi) was backed up by a show that is interesting, fun in Chobits (8/10). It also dealt with some surprising issues with notable sensitivity. Another show that took big topics (death, motivation, redemption, salvation) and handled it better than most live-action productions was Haibane-Renmei (8/10).

★ 7/10


2001 Anime:

★ 8/10

★ 6/10


1994 Anime:

★ 6/10

  • Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 (6/10) featured strong character development and some strong episodes but it wasn’t enough to make up for a series that got duller and more difficult to follow as it went on.

★★ 2/10


1991 Anime:

★★★★★ ★★ 7/10

  • Roujin Z is another of those wonderful only-in-Japan stories that so fascinate Western viewers.

1989 Anime:

★★★★★ 5/10

  • Mecha movie Patlabor: The Mobile Police was unsatisfactory as, even though time was spent on character, the plot didn’t make a lick of sense.

1980 Anime:

★★ ★ 8/10


1968 Anime:

★ 7/10

  • Did modern anime start here? Little Norse Prince (7/10) holds up extremely well as an animation that delivers complex characters and interesting themes and, where the budget allowed, some excellent character animation.
