|Christmas Eve is here ...
So we're giving you some reviews!
Jen (doink-chan) starts things off with a look at the not-so-great (okay, horribdoinky) boy-love romance feature BRONZE: ZETSUAI, which gets slapped pretty hard. Maybe its sequel could improve things?
Next up is Jeremy Beard, who chronicles the overlong mecha saga ARMORED TROOPER VOTOMS, which still garners some praise despite being pretty dated by this point.
Enoch Lau musters up the courage to take on the intimidatingly fan-servicey IKKITOUSEN, and comes up with a surprisingly average score for this recently licensed action series.
And it's back to Jeremy Beard again for a second opinion of GUNBUSTER, which only reaffirms that, even after 14 years, it's still one of Gainax's best ever.
Meanwhile, Tim Jones isn't so lucky, drawing the short straw with DRAGON BALL GT, and tossing it out like last week's garbage.
Finally, the long-awaited second review of NARUTO has Derrick Tucker watching over sixty episodes and *still* wondering what the fuss is about, matching the original review's average rating.
Hopefully we'll be able to get in another update or two by the New Year.
In one more bit of news, I would like to mention that THEM's own Jason Bustard witnessed the San Simeon earthquake firsthand on Monday morning, as he was in his hometown in Central California visiting family for the holidays. Fortunately, he and his family are fine, and he will be returning to THEM HQ soon.
Our prayers and thoughts go out to those affected by this event, and we are thankful that the damage has been relatively limited in scope.
Keep safe out there this holiday season, and I hope to see you all again soon, whether on the boards, or otherwise.
