updated their review of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
Magical, cheesy, cute, where all words I would have used to describe Madoka Magica, if I had only watched the first one or two episodes. Yet after watching the whole thing I would use words like, bleak, tragic, depressing, maybe even, one of the best anime ever.

updated their review of Durarara!!
Ahhhh Durarara, lets get this out of the way first, no this is not Baccano, and really it tries to be (I think there was a Baccano reference every other episode, and even a crossover), but the fact that it's trying to be its older brother doesn't hinder it that much. One of the main reasons this...Read MrShadowzs's full review

updated their review of Kanon (2006)
I should probably say this first, this review will have more Clannad references then you can shake a stick at, because both anime are very similar, but also very different so there's that.
