I don't know how Ben-To does it, but they put a unique twist to something really dumb. I always appreciates half-priced boxed lunches, but Ben-To just makes it all the more interesting. (more…)
Not pleased very much. Maken-Ki is becoming quite predictable and the action may not be worth the wait. As the anime begins to explain the origins of the plot, we wonder if we will come back to this series. (more…)
MEDIABEASt looks at Maken-Ki for the first time. Unfortunately, it only seems like it's a second rate "Freezing". Aside from that, it looks like another predictable ecchi. Lucky for this anime, the action looks like it will be enough to keep us coming back. (more…)
I've heard of fighting over food but I don't think I've seen it as intense as this. Mediabeast watches the first episode of Ben-To and may just be tuning into the next.
What an episode? The Vatican's strongest exorcist team up in order to stop Satan's plan. Blue Exorcist always stressed how no Exorcist can work alone, and even in the hardest moments, they stay true to their motto. (more…)
Sacred Seven is finally done. Although this anime has its share of flaws it still manages to pull MEDIABEAST through its whole series. The key thing of this anime may not be the story, but the action and animation sure are enjoyable. Let's go over well Tandouji should feel about his performance after his final battle.
Story (Fair): The biggest flaw of this anime is the fact that some things go unexplained. The plot of this anime follows the sacred power of these crystals that give the bearers, Darkstones, unimaginable power. But....where did these crystals come from? Why were they created? You never find out. All that is revealed, is that Kenmi, the main villian, wants to harness all the power and everybody else aims to stop him.

The main character, Tandouji, in our opinion, does not truly play a key role in the story. Other than him b...
As Satan possesses Yukio for another episode, Blue Exorcist delivers a nice episode with almost everything you can ask for. A lot of character involvement, good action, and, most importantly, a good story. It gets slightly cheesy toward the end but the show is not over just yet. (more…)
This episode might not go the way you expected but it was still epic. The older brother, Yukio, finally has his moment and this episode shows me the most in a story I have ever seen out this anime. (more…)
What an impressive episode. Things happened a but fast in this episode but the heat is on and it's easy to keep up with. (more…)
Fans may have thought this episode was just good, but I thought it was excellent. Aside from the slow start, Sacred Seven finally delivers the answer to the question I’ve been asking, “What is the point of the anime”. (more…)
The point of this anime has yet to be revealed, but at least they are showing progress in the main Character, Tandoji. It's not picture perfect, but "Sacred Seven" standards, it'll do.
I never fell so much in love with a “Blue Exorcist” episode until now. The Vatican is under new leadership and the transition of power is quite hectic. Before anybody has time to get settled with anything, order goes into chaos. (more…)
Another impressive episode. Looks like “Blue Exorcist” is on a roll. Rin shows what it means to believe that every person, whether demon or human deserves a chance to live in peace. (more…)
The story is getting quite hot. Rin’s life is becoming more valuable as time progresses and it is putting the ones close to him at risk. Will only Rin get stronger or will the rest of the cast join him in the quest for power? (more…)
The parasite bees are still making their mark on No. 6 and word has got out to the West District. Looks like they will be a bigger threat than imagined. (more…)
FILLER ALERT. "Blue Exorcist" gives you a taste of the plot but then quickly switches to the filler material. Although most of this episode is not that important, you can still pick up some nice stuff and enjoy the show. (more…)
In hopes that Blood-C would have gotten better, it has failed. As Saya mentally deals with the death she feels responsible for, the point of this anime is still hiding. (more…)
It's true what they say. You can spend too much time with somebody. As Nezumi tries to find his connections inside No.6, it looks as though Sion's presence may be doing more harm than Nezumi planned for. (more…)
This anime is doing a lot better than other wit sticking to the plot. Sion, surviving the parasite from No.6, is faced with what may be the hardest decisions of his new life. He must choose to abandon his old or new life. (more…)
Time has elapsed for years and Sion's life has changed. His past decisions haunt him until this day as he makes another mistake towards the authority of the city. Seeing a handful of horrific things with a handful of people to care about, it is the start of a new life. (more…)
