updated their review of Bleach Movie 2: The DiamondDust Rebellion
Bleach: The DiamondDust Rebellion takes place in the Bleach universe, as the title may suggest. It focuses mainly on 10th squad captain Hitsugaya Toshiro, so if you're a fan of him, you'll enjoy this movie, and if you're not, you might not find it interesting.

updated their review of Bleach the Movie 4: Hell Verse
I'll admit, I had a blast watching this movie! It has a lot of cool fights and an interesting plot. The plot isn't all that unique though, that's the only part that is disappointing. If you've seen the anime Bleach, then you know how their 'arcs' go. Bleach tends to do the whole "someone...Read Komirai's full review

updated their review of Fortune Arterial: Akai Yakusoku
Even at first glance, Fortune Arterial seems... shakey... generic. Whoever said "don't judge a book by its covers" probably didn't look in the right book section because, indeed, Fortune Arterial is shakey and very generic. The experience of watching Fortune Arterial is comparable to...Read Komirai's full review

updated their review of Hagure Yuusha no Estetica
Finally an anime where the protagonist is not some lame fool, with his balls cut off. No weak as jokes where the male lead is a pussy and only has cheesy one liners. This has all the elements of the best animes. School life, fantasy, some elements of a harem, fighting, etc. with the lead as a...Read Komirai's full review
After saving a fairy-tale kingdom, Akatsuki returns to the real world with his prize—Miu, the busty daughter of the defeated Demon King. It’s one hell of a happy ending until...
updated their review of Mayo Chiki!
Mayonnaise Chicken is a simple dish which requires you to cover parts of the chicken which you want to consume with butter and mayonnaise (crumbs are optional) baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.. It is better if you..... Oh wait a minute, this isn't the Cook's Review! My bad folks... It's...Read Komirai's full review

updated their review of Toradora!
Going into Toradora, I wasn’t really expecting too much from it. I thought it would be your standard school life love story we have all seen so many times before. But low and behold it came out to be surprisingly good, and has quickly become one of my favorite 2008 airing anime series. ...Read Komirai's full review

updated their review of Acchi Kocchi
“Um, m-marriage is where your life goes to drink.” When I first saw this anime while browsing for brand new anime releases, this anime came into view. My first thoughts… Probably just one of those cliché anime comedy romances. Well I got the comedy romance part right...Read Komirai's full review

Another was one of those series which had me waiting eagerly for Mondays to arrive and wishing that the weekend would end sooner.

updated their review of 11eyes
11eyes, in the beginning, showed potential to be a "10" or "9" grade anime. Some shows went on and grew the beard. This one, on the other hand, devolved into something else. However, this wasn't exactly a devolution into the worst of the worst. Story - 4/10 The anime showed...Read Komirai's full review

updated their review of Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia. Even that title alone may convince some viewers to watch this series. But what you may least expect would be a ghost troll (a hot ghost troll if I may add) hanging out with the main protagonist on a daily basis doing cute little things here and there. The story covers...Read Komirai's full review

Sex, lewd thoughts, and imaginations. Here's an interesting little trivia: Did you know that the average man in our world today think about sex nearly every 56 seconds? Fact or fiction, you decide.

updated their review of Vampire Knight
If you think that shojo series are all flowery, romantic (comedies) and cheerful, you're quite wrong, and Vampire Knight will prove that more than anything else. Keywords for VK are drama, emotional struggles and tragic pasts. Throw in a dash of vampire, and there you have Vampire Knight in all...Read Komirai's full review

updated their review of Spice & Wolf (Light Novel)
Simplicity can sometimes produce the best results, and that is especially true for this light novel.

Clannad. Made as a visual novel by Key, made into an anime by Kyoto Animation. This combination has been seen twice before, in the series Air and Kanon.

updated their review of Brighter than the Dawning Blue
Finally, a romantic comedy done right. Even though I'm a guy, I have seen many romantic animes and this is probably one of the best.

updated their review of One Piece
There are two responses I get, without fail, every time I try to get someone new to watch this show. "I don't like the art style," or "I've seen the dub - NO THANKS." I'm guilty of both of these myself. But if there's one thing I need to stress before even getting started on...Read Komirai's full review

Maybe it’s because I’m getting old and senile, but it seems that the more anime I watch, the less sense they seem to make.

updated their review of Mashiro-Iro Symphony: The Color of Lovers
Clannad, Kanon (2006) or ef - a tale of memories/melodies although aging, are the anime who solely represent how romance visual novels should be adapted.

I have to admit that I first started watching Angel Beats because of two main reasons: the pretty visuals, and the presence of guitars.
