updated their review of Natsume Yuujinchou
Score 7.4/10

Story – 7/10 Natsume Yuujinchou’s (NY) story is very light and charming. There is no over-arching plot with twists, though there are occasional flashbacks that help develop Reiko and Takashi’s character. The story mostly consists of light comedy, some sad situations, and...

updated their review of Darker than Black: Gemini of the Meteor
Score 7.8/10

Story: 8/10 Ryuusei no Gemini (RG)’s story is very good. While it is a sequel, the story can stand on its own two legs. However the fact that the plot is sometimes rushed and that many things are unexplained (holes in the story) keep it from getting a higher score. My personal...
