PlatapusSpasmAK47 updated their review of Xam'd: Lost Memories
Score 9.5/10

Plot: The plotline of Xam'd, although pretty original and not very predictable, is not the strong point. I had no problems with the plot and really liked it, except for the fact that a clear explanation of why a war was being waged between the North and the South was never explained. Sometimes...

PlatapusSpasmAK47 updated their review of Hotarubi no Mori e
Score 8.5/10

Story: The wonderful aspect of this story is the simplicity of it. In the short 45 minutes the story is fully developed, and since it is so simple, it is wonderfully paced. It isn't drawn out, but it has enough time to accomplish what it sets out to do. It has a predictable ending, but that...

PlatapusSpasmAK47 updated their review of Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle
Score 6.5/10

Plot: This is one of those shows that you know is mediocore, but nonetheless, you still find yourself enjoying it. The premise of the show is interesting, life threatening puzzles set up by a mysterious organization; the POG. It's definitely different in its own way. The show uses it's...

PlatapusSpasmAK47 updated their review of Aquarian Age
Score 4/10

Story: In the beginning (meaning the first couple of episodes) I happened to really like this show. I mean, the characters were very relatable, and there weren't any forced actions between the characters. Also, the idea of combining super powers and the entertainment industry is...

PlatapusSpasmAK47 updated their review of Darker than Black: Ryuusei no Gemini
Score 6/10

Plot: I must say that Darker than Black is one of my favorite animes. So when I found out about the sequel, I was hyped. Now, because I like the first one so much, I expected the sequel to reach the same level, or even higher than its predecessor. Sort of like Birdy the Mighty Decode. To be...

PlatapusSpasmAK47 updated their review of Birdy the Mighty Decode 2
Score 9/10

Plot: Usually sequals tend to be worse than the originals, but, Birdy the second season manages to flip that theory compeletly upside down. The sequal focuses much more on Birdy. Tsutomu probably appeared for a full fifteen minutes (or less) if you combined all the scenes where he was in. The...

PlatapusSpasmAK47 updated their review of Birdy the Mighty Decode
Score 8/10

Plot: Don't let the synopsis fool you. I started watching Birdy the Mighty Decode with the thought that it would be so bad, that it would actually be funny. Anyways, the story has an intriguing plot line that isn't too predictable. At times, it can get a little slow paced, but not in a bad...

PlatapusSpasmAK47 updated their review of Project ARMS
Score 4/10

Story: Well...it was your average shounen series I guess. Except this one had a darker twist to it. Honestly though, it was nothing new. Boy gets power. He's scared of power. Faces strong opponent. Defeats opponent. Meets even stronger opponent, etc. And the way the series set the powers up was...

Score 2/10

Plot: I have forced myself to watch this anime, just so I could submit a review to tear this piece of crap apart. The plot, completely unoriginal. Mindless slashing, screaming, and shooting of demons basically sums up the entire plot. Even action junkies such as myself, will find the action...

Score 6.5/10

Plot: So I mainly picked up this show to satisfy my action cravings. It accomplished this aspect very well. However, the story itself isn't very original. Basically, people come from the future, try to save the past while infiltrating a high school yada yada yada. It's been done before, many...
