Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou was one of my first anime to research, watch online, and look forward to every week. I would say it was the bookmark that changed me from "I'm watching anime" to "I'm an Anime Newb". It was a phenomenal anime. It's full of hilarious moments, perversion, and tons of action. The anime follows Akuto SAI in a world rich with mana where magic is taught in schools. Unfortunately, out of the gate Sai is given a bad rap. As he attempts to clear his name throughout... read more
One night, while I'm flipping channels ... I run across a small anime called Kekkaishi on adult swim. Immediately it sparks my curiosity so I hunt it out on the internet. This is where I started my adventure of love, hate, magic, demons, and best of all ... explosions.Kekkaishi is an anime that follows 2 younger children that are born and raised to protect a sacred land, where their school happens to be.

Okay, well I can't give you tons of action, but I can steer us in an unexpected starting point.Let's start from the end. This is yet another Anime like Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou that I was sad to see end in 12 episodes. I had come to have feelings for the characters and their plight to stay alive. This will be yet another anime that I hope for a 2nd season, or more! I was excited and would... read more
I really enjoyed Darker Than Black - Kuro no Keiyakusha. Matter of fact, it's one of my all time favorites. So naturally, I thought I would enjoy this one. The reality is: I didn't. This is unfortunately due to the change in roles of the characters. I continued to watch it through (Am still watching as I type); just for the love of the background story and settings.This one gets a low rating from me, and without giving any spoilers it's mainly, again, due to the change in roles of the main characters from one chapter to another.If you... read more
I'm currently watching this anime from the movie to the episodes, so I'm watching it backwards than normal.It's a very confusing, and yet compelling story. I'm really enjoying it, and can't wait to watch more episodes.
