Pacific Rim” might be the best looking Saturday morning cartoon I’ve ever seen. In fact, everything about the new Guillermo del Toro monsters vs. robots flick is so animated and giant-sized that movie theaters should serve up big bowls of sugary cereal to view it with.

higurashi-575-cropped

By Danica Davidson

Miyoko Tanashi, the little girl who will grow up to become the woman Miyo Takano, starts out with a normal childhood. She’s an only child, and though she gets scared easily by her dad’s stories about demons, she’s really happy in her life.

But the “Higurashi” franchise is about horror, tragedy and all the things that could go wrong. Miyoko’s parents are killed in an awful train wreck. She does get to see her dad one last time, and he tells her that if she winds up alone, she’s to go to his mentor, Hifumi Takano. The amount of gore from the train wreck and her father’s death scene is almost overwhelming; not because “Higurashi” hasn’t used gore before, but because the reader feels bad that a character as young and innocent as Miyoko has to witness this.

There are no other relatives, so the newly orphaned girl is sent off to an abusive orphanage. People on the outside think the children there are being treated okay, but they have no idea. It’s like a torture chamber for kids, so Miyoko knows she has to escape it and find Takano. Read More...

MagicaQuartet_KazumiMagica_FINALBy Danica Davidson

Kazumi has been kidnapped and put in a box. This could be a terrifying premise, but “Puella Magi Kazumi Magica: The Innocent Malice” isn’t one of those manga. Instead of opening with a nail-biting kidnap scene, we’re introduced to Kazumi naked in a box. She jumps out of the box, still naked, and starts pummeling the guy she believes kidnapped her. When she’s in the midst of beating the crap out of him she realizes, oh yeah, she’s still naked, and then her modesty takes over and she stops trying to hurt him.

Not a whole lot of this manga makes logical sense, but it’s not supposed to. “Puella Magi Kazumi Magica” is a not-so-well-known spinoff of “Puella Magi Madoka Magica,” but you don’t have to know the original series to be able to read the spinoff. This is, however, one of those wonky weird manga titles with a very specific Japanese sense of humor. It’s not recommended to someone who hasn’t read manga before, because they’re going to be thinking, “What the heck?” It’s not exactly a mainstream manga, either, but its off-brand type of humor and strangeness will definitely have readers.

Factory's 4-disk DVD set of "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Season Three." In this popular children's TV show, six squeaky-clean teenagers try to stop the evil Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd from conquering Earth.

The third season started after the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie" - the franchise's heyday - so When the season kicked off, the four-parter "Ninja Quest" brought in aspects of the movie.

Batman. It seems like there's been a practically unlimited amount of action figures and toys coming out all the time that feature Mr. Wayne's cowled visage-- and I wouldn't have it any other way! Case in point: the latest high-quality import from Square-Enix' Play Arts Kai line of figures based on Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy! Without even trying, I've managed to amass quite a wide array of Batman figures, and recently it seems my favorites have come from Square Enix. How will this Christian Bale-version of the Dark Knight stack up? Will he randomly have pieces pop off and/or snap in twain, like some of my other Play Arts of years past? Or will he turn out to be my new favorite law-breaking-billionaire-orphan?! Read on to find out! Read More...

Bane has never been able to catch a break (no pun intended) when it comes to his movie appearances. In both "Batman & Robin" and "The Dark Knight Rises", the venom-infused fighting machine has basically been an unintelligible henchman-- far from the cunning strategist, of DC Comics' fame, that figured out how to beat Batman during 'Knightfall' and later led the Secret Six in it's own private mercenary war. Nope, Bane is simply a stooge for someone greater in both of his big screen appearances; but now, thanks to Square-Enix, he's getting a chance to shine as the first villain in their Dark Knight Trilogy Play Arts Kai line of action figures! Will he get a little redemption? are you kidding?! This toy is badass! Read More...
