The Seven Deadly Sins

I'm not the harshest critic. But I love A-1 Pictures! From SAO, to Oreimo, to Kuroshitsuji. I can always rely on beautiful character designs from A-1 Pictures. My favorite length for anime usually falls between 12-24 episodes. So I think the pacing of this show was perfect! No too drawn out, and for an adaptation of a longer manga, and it only being the first season, it doesn't really leave too loose ends. It has the perfect combination of seriousness, comic relief, ecchi and action. Interesting characters, and some heartwarming relationships. I particularly liked the story of King and Diane and his...

Arakawa Under the Bridge

I kind of want to watch the second season. But I'm also worried, because if it leaves as much unexplained as the first season, the viewer is in for a serious slap to the face. The comedy aspect is enjoyable for the first 5 episodes. But after a while you're gonna ask yourself, "WTF?!". I had hoped for more backstories for the characters. I get it, they're weird, but without explaining why they are the way they are it's just kind of annoying. This is a Shaft production. So I'm familiar with the style of their shows. Out of all their work I've seen this, Bakemonogatari and Sayonara Zetsubou... See full review

Blue Exorcist

Okumura Rin is the typical male shounen lead. He is boisterous and not the sharpest tool in the shed. But what he lacks in intelligence, discipline and overall awkwardness he makes up for with his firey spirit and complete sincereity. It is also in some ways a typical "magic-shool" genre. But it has themes such as the importance of friendship, overcoming obstacles(no matter how impossible they seem), understanding others and giving life your all. It has an interesting group of characters. It kind of reminded me of Inuyasha in some ways. I felt like it could have used a second season. But I... See full review

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Wow. This show is crazy! The crap they can fit in 12 episodes is amazing! I haven't seen an ending this crazy since Evangelion! All the characters are not what they seem. The character development is amazing. The plot was extremely unexepected and the suspense was insane! I hated characters, then I loved them, then hated them again. It's a little preachy about the concepts of sacrifice and acting for the greater good, or our personal wishes vs. the real effect that may follow. Or "be careful what you wish for" explains it well. The character design wasn't perfect. Shaft studios has a more simple... See full review

Aoi Bungaku Series

From the creators of Death Note, Madhouse Inc. presents you with an a morbid adaptation of morbid classical Japanese texts. If you don't expect any saccharine, energetic, high-pitched intro songs, and you don't expect any happy endings you may enjoy this. It is very tragic and a little gory at times. They aren't the best stories I've ever heard of, but they were written by classical Japanese authors, so it has a bit more cultural insight than the average Japanese animation. I loved the host of the show. Before each episode he does a brief introduction with a little bit of background information. And his... See full review
