‘Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle’ Review (Netflix)

  • Nerdly
Featuring the voices of: Lucien Dodge, Kana Hanazawa, Kenyu Horiuchi, Yuki Kaji, Kenta Miyake, Mamoru Miyano, Kazuya Nakai, Ari Ozawa, Takahiro Sakurai, Tomokazu Sugita, Junichi Suwabe, Reina Ueda | Written by Yusuke Kozaki, Gen Urobuchi | Directed by Hiroyuki Seshita, Kôbun Shizuno

Following their crushing defeat at the hands of Godzilla Earth, Haruo Sakaki and his allies encounter a mysterious aboriginal tribe descended from the humans left behind on Earth 20,000 years ago, and uncover a mechanized city-sized fortress formed from the long-lost anti-Godzilla weapon Mechagodzilla.

Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle is the reportedly second entry – after its predecessor Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters led the charge into the newly established animated lore – of a new intended trilogy of films for the western hemisphere, yet installed as an anime TV show in Godzilla’s’ native Japan.

While the first entry didn’t necessarily impress on a story level with very little

Review: Batman Ninja

  • Comicmix
In the 1950s, Batman was transformed into a variety of beings or wore a colorful assortment of costumes to goose sales. Thankfully, that silliness was retired with the New Look and wasn’t resurrected until the Elseworlds what if stories of the 1990s. That same approach has now crept from the page to the screen with Batman Ninja, out now on DVD from Warner Home Entertainment.

This anime-style adventure comes from director Junpei Mizusaki, (producer of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure), working from a script by Kazuki Nakashima and character designs from Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai). As a result, it comes with a strong pedigree for the creative approach.

Rather than a posit an ancient Japan that needed a protector styled in the form of a bat, this gonzo story actually takes the heroes and villains of Gotham City and transports them into the past. It’s weird, wild, wacky and

Red Hood, Bane, Deathstroke And More Confirmed For Batman Ninja

We’ve long had a soft spot for stories that transplant Batman to different times. The best is probably Gotham By Gaslight, which imagines a Victorian Batman tangling with Jack the Ripper, but we also enjoyed Grant Morrison’s time-hopping miniseries Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne, in which we see Caveman Batman, Witchhunter Batman, Pirate Batman, Cowboy Batman and 30s Gumshoe Batman. So, naturally, we’re over the moon with excitement for Batman Ninja.

First announced at the New York Comic-Con last year, the project is the brainchild of DC and a number of anime and manga superstars. Namely, Junpei Mizusaki (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), Takashi Okazashi (Afro Samurai), and Kazuki Nakashima (Gurren Lagann). It’ll feature a bold story, too, that’ll see – get this – the Dark Knight being thrown back through time to medieval Japan. There, he’ll be joined by a host of supporting characters, which

The two could not be more different, with this one being set in the far future. After half-century of the war against gigantic monsters, the human race, deciding to escape the planet Earth for safety, creates a small group to go on a exhibition mission back to the planet. Only to return to a world dominated by Godzilla. The voice cast includes Kana Hanazawa, Ken'yû Horiuchi, Yuki Kaji, and Kenta Miyake. Watch below.

Pumpkin Scissors DVD Review

Director: Katsuhito Akiyama

Starring: Shizuka Itou, Kaytha Coker, Kenta Miyake, Adam Dudley, Chihiro Suzuki, Blake Shepard, Cho, Marty Fleck, Kana Ueda, Monica Passley

Running Time: 600 minutes

Certificate: 15

Having very little to do with either pumpkins or scissors, Pumpkin Scissors is a bizarrely titled anime, but one that has a lot going for it. Set after a war between the empire and the republic (we aren’t given specific details, just go with it), we follow the daily runnings and adventures of the Pumpkin Scissors, a military group set-up as “war relief”. They’re pretty much a propaganda tool used to convince the public that the military gives a damn about the poor, ill, and starving. Unfortunately for the militaries top brass, Pumpkin Scissors is lead by Alice Malvin, who happens to be an honourable soldier as well as a member of the social elite. This makes her the perfect focus

Four more cast interviews released for the upcoming Berserk anime – Egg of the Supreme Ruler

Four new cast interview videos were posted in December on the official website for the upcoming Berserk anime.

These videos are a new installment of cast interviews which follow a previous round that received mixed reviews from many anime fans. In these recent four interviews, the actors who will be voicing Judeau, Rickert, Charlotte, and Nosferatu Zodd were spoiled. The actors playins the parts will be Yuuki Kaji as Judeau, Aki Toyosaki as Charlotte, Minako Kotobuki as Rickert, and Kenta Miyake as the powerful Apostle Nosferatu Zodd. As an added bonus, these cast interviews featured animated clips, which serve to give fans a taste of the long-awaited Berserk film.

This means that, so far, the official website for the Berserk film has spoiled the characters mentioned above plus the actors playing Guts, Griffith, and Casca (Hiroaki Iwanaga, Takahiro Sakurai, and Toa Yukinari respectively.) We can still expect more interviews to
