Cold Cobra

Having watched anime since it was airing late night on the Sci-Fi channel in the late 90s, I consider myself... someone who's watched a lot of anime, and then got hired to write reviews about them. Hooray!

Evangelion 3.0 + 1.01 Review
Getting a special run on big screens ahead of its physical media release, the finale of the “Evangelion Rebuild” films is quite the experience and sitting in front of a large cinema screen will certainly add to that, but does Hideaki Anno’s third attempt at an ending to Evangelion get it right, or was it not wrong in the first place?

Final Fantasy VII: Remake – Traces of Two Pasts Review
Traces of Two Pasts does exactly what it says on the tin (or book cover I guess) and gives us a look into the backstory of Tifa and Aerith, plus a bonus story at the end, all written by FFVII scenario writer himself (amongst so many other things!) Kazushige Nojima. Is it really juicy information that will have a big effect on the up-coming FFVII: Rebirth game? No, not at all, but that doesn’t mean it can't still be a good read.

Samurai 7 – Complete Series Review

Samurai 7 – Complete Series Review
Samurai 7 retells the extremely influential Akira Kurosawa film Seven Samurai but changes the setting from Japan’s past to a weird mix of science fiction, steampunk and Japanese culture to create something entirely different - well, apart from the 'small village hiring seven samurai to protect it from bandits' part anyway. Does it work, though?
