Ladholyman's Kaleido Star Ova Review

Rated: 10

Layla was the main character here, so all you Mia and Anna fans will probably be a bit disappointed. I learned quite a bit about Layla in this OAV, from her severe phobia of failure to her hidden past of being a weakling and a crybaby. All this makes me appreciate her already beloved character even more. Sora was her usual happy-go-lucky self, so not much development there. But there was no need to, since Sora did fulfill her purpose as Layla`s pillar of support. All the other characters only had cameos, and somehow (I don`t know why), Ken started wearing those fruity glasses. It makes him look more pimp, I guess.
If you have not watched the original series, stop right here. Don`t even think of watching this.

Ladholyman's A Little Snow Fairy Sugar Tv Review

Rated: 9

I love the characters; the high point of Snow Fairy Sugar. I love the character designs. I love how each character have their own quirks. Ann is so much better than Lorna, since she looks so much like Shia from Pita Ten. Alan and his two gay buddies are hilarious. Greta is freaking awesome, as with Salt. I love the cuteness in everything. I don`t know what to say about Turmeric though, because all he does is sit around waving a cello and looking cool. He also pimps with that flute player. That`s fine by me, as all the characters were just so damn cute. I can't get enough of them.

I`ll definately show this to my kids. It pains me to think that shows like Ed, Edd, and Eddy rule the kid`s shows here in the states while the Japanese get Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar.

Ladholyman's Planetes Tv Review

Rated: 10

Originality is a key point of this anime. I have never seen the words "Space garbage men" ever in my whole life until I saw this anime. PlanetES is like watching the struggles of blue-collared workers, but in space. I think I learned more about the history about space travel in this anime then all those documentaries I watched at school. This is the most original and realistic space-themed anime ever. No mechs, no fanservice, no random explosions, no defying of physics, no hikery pokery. It's all about the Debris section, their social caste of the company, and how several down-to-earth people make their living. The jokes that are cast sparingly are funny and genuine, the plot moves at a catchable pace.
This anime made me think, unlike Evagelion.
