Kodomo no Jikan (2007)

on Jan 16, 2012

Now this anime, that I watched recently, has been under a lot of controversy due to some people believing that it supports child pornography or whatnot. Today, I am going to give my opinion on the anime Kodomo no Jikan which translates out as "A Child's Time." Now, the synopsis of the anime is this. A twenty-three-year-old graduate student named Aoki gets a job as a teacher in an elementary class. He works in the third grade class, Class 3-1. It is there, that he meets a nine-year-old girl named Rin Kokonone, and she develops a crush on him. She then calls herself his girlfriend, and often... read more

Strawberry Marshmallow

To be honest, I strongly disklike Moe characters and lolicons. In my opinion, an anime can live and prosper without it. However, in a few cases, it is rare that moe actually works in an anime. This is why I'm reviewing Ichigo Mashimaro. The premise of the show is that a twenty-one-year-old college student named Nobue lives with her younger sister Chika in the same house. Nobue is a smoker, and often asks for money from her younger sister. They live next door to their obnoxious friend Miu, who is mostly used for comic relief in the show. Anyway, two more girls are involved in the plot: Matsuri, a shy girl... read more

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei

on Oct 8, 2011

I hated Rei. Now, before you flag me, no, I did not read the visual novel it was based off of. My review is generally on the anime. Now, Higurashi (the first two seasons) in my opinion is one of the most epic animes of all time, second to Dragon Ball. The storytelling was great, and in my opinion was faithful to the VN (again, I did not read the VN, so don't complain to me). And, I believed that it should've ended after the finale of Kai, because the endles cycle of murders was resolved, and everyone could now go on with their lives. However, they make a five episode OVA named Higurashi Na Naku Koro Ni Rei... read more

Koihime Musou

on Oct 1, 2011

Before you consider me perverted, I have to say that I admired Koihime Musou. Now, for those who haven't known so far, Koihime is based on a visual number of the same name which in turn is based on the novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms by Luo Guanzhong. In Koihime Musou, the setting is in China which was nearing the end of the Han Dynasty around 220 CE. The protagonist in this tale is a young woman named Kan'u (Aisha is her given name) as she journeys across China hunting bandits. She is known throughout as the Blackhaired Beauty. The reason for hunting bandits was because bandits killed her brother... read more
