Anime Review Roundup
Dog & Scissors is definitely one of those shows. After all, it’s about the sado-masochistic sexual attraction between a young, attractive author, and her pet dachshund. And yet, Dog & Scissors has just got a UK release on Blu-ray, and with a 15 rating at that. Click on the review to see why this isn’t the show to be irately writing to your MP about.
Belle, the most recent film from anime auteur Mamoru Hosoda. At first glance it seems to be a mix-up of his greatest hits, with elements of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, The Boy and the Beast, and especially Summer Wars rather obvious. But this Beauty and the Beast tale set in a virtual reality quickly finds its own voice, and develops in an effective and moving way, backed up by some wonderful music. Click on the review to see why Belle is Hosoda’s best yet.
