Welcome to the Abandoned Factory Anime Review!
As you might realize, this review is named in honor of the anime Haibane Renmei. If you haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend it. Haibane Renmei is an incredible combination of thought-provoking story and moving performances wrapped in beautiful visual and musical artwork. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about it is that it is only 13 episodes long. Within those few episodes the viewer is introduced to a world that is difficult to forget, where beings (outwardly resembling angels) live, wonder, and eventually take flight. Very few anime are anywhere near as good as Haibane Renmei, but many shows are quite enjoyable.
My intention with this blog is to remark on anime that I encounter — pointing out the good and the bad as I see it. My immediate motivation for starting this blog is my excitement for the upcoming Spring 2010 season. I will be following several shows this season, and decided, rather than merely leaving comments on bulletin boards and the blogs of others, as I have in the past, I would collect my thoughts in one place — here in the Abandoned Factory Anime Review.
As I am just starting this blog, my style is likely to evolve, but I do intend to offer what other sites cannot: my insights and opinions.
