Anyone who grew up on the Toonami block should already be familiar with Yu Yu Hakusho. I remember watching bits and pieces of the first two seasons back in elementary school, after getting home. At some point while I was in middle school, I borrowed a large section of the series on DVD from a cousin. Though I thoroughly enjoyed the series, I realized that while I enjoyed the series originally, I hadn’t actually retained much from watching it on Toonami.
Anyone whose read my previous reviews know that nostalgia plays a big role in my judgments. To be perfectly honest, the appeal to Ronin Warriors is almost completely fueled by nostalgia. Anyone who was raised on the Toonami block on Cartoon Network might remember this series. It was one of those hidden gems that passed the time between your arrival home from school, and the beginning of Dragon Ball Z.
Before watching Kill la Kill I would have defined the words legendary and epic very differently, but Kill la Kill made such an impression on me that from here on out I will forever be reminded of Kill la Kill when an individual utters those words. From the fantastic animation, complimentary soundtrack, all the way to fantastical scenarios and enduring charm, Kill la Kill is an absolutely phenomenal piece of art from beginning to end.
I picked up the first volume of the D.N. Angel manga series a little over 8 years ago based on a recommendation. I wasn’t initially impressed, but decided to give the second volume a shot. I was hooked ever since, collecting the 13 volumes released in the US, and the 26 episode Anime series adapted from the manga.
