I'm still reviewing anime...Awright?I'm still reviewing anime... by hde2009
It's been AGES since I posted anything by way of an update on here, so here's a little note about my side gig for the three peple who are following it.
If you've been keeping an eye on my page here, you'll have noticed that, late last year I started I started a Youtube channel where I review anime.
Thanks to the YAM112003, however, which is a network affiliated to an Italian media company, I had to wind the channel down. They kept making bogus claims of copyright infringement on my videos and simply wouldn't communicate with me over them at all. So it struck me that I would do better to shut up shop and start again once Youtube's proposed changes to the Content ID system started to kick in.
The good news is, I'm up and running again, and have been for a few weeks. I'm posting weekly videos on my 'HdE Does Anime' channel, which you can find here:
For the time being, I'm mostly uploading my older content to the channel. Bu
Brainjar TV anime review - Dallos (the first OVA!)It's that time again!Brainjar TV anime review - Dallos (the first OVA!) by hde2009
Despite searing back pain and software that seems determined to crash on me every five minutes (which in one worrying case crippled my computer by corrupting .dll files) I've managed to squeak out a fresh anime review feature on my Youtube channel.
This time, I'm looking at what's often credited as the first ever OVA, 1983's DALLOS. This one also stands as an early work by Mamoru Oshii, although, as the video will clue you in on, he had a bit of help from an industry heavyweight at the time.
Anyway, here's the link. And don't forget, if you like the review, there are some others on the channel you can peruse. Like and subscribe, or I'll break into your homes late at night and replace everything you own with an exact replica. (Now if that isn't terrifying, I don't know what is!)
Here's the linky-doo for your edification:
Legend of the Legendary Anime Review!Which is my roundabout way of saying that this week's anime review over on the Brainjar TV Youtube channel is up!Legend of the Legendary Anime Review! by hde2009
This time, I take a look at the anime adaptation of Takaya Kagami's giggle-inducingly entitled Legend of the Legendary Heroes, which poses the question 'just how much of a long running fantasy novel series can you cram into 24 episodes?'
Which is a question I answer, more or less. Over the course of 7 and a half minutes.
Here's the link - and remember to like, subscribe and comment. Because all of that helps me to keep doing these reviews, believe it or not.
Anime review - Street Fighter II The MovieIt's that time again, folks!Anime review - Street Fighter II The Movie by hde2009
Those of you who follow the updates on my channel may have spotted that my schedule is running a week late. That's because last week I possted a special Talking Point video on the Youtube Where's The Fair Use? campaign. If you're not sure what that's all about, I outline some of the basics in the link below - and it's most definitely an issue that affects EVERYBODY using Youtube:
But the MAIN EVENT this time around is 1994's STREET FIGHTER II THE MOVIE, which seemed liek a pretty good idea seeing as there's a new Street Fighter video game troubling store shelves right now.
Anyway - the review is in the link below!
