Naruto

on

Some Spoilers Ensue: I've finally finished! Wow, what a ride this was! I absolutely loved this show and I'm so excited to start Shippuden! I love Shounen anime and this one was up there with the best of them. It consisted of about 130 or so canon episodes, and 90 or so filler episodes. The canon episodes were amazing and the filler were...well, filler. Going into the show, I found myself not loving the first 20 or so episodes, but once we got to the arc dealing with Haku and Zabuza, I became hooked. What really set the show off thought was when we started the exams. Oh my fuck I was watching like 12 eps a... See full review

Your lie in April

on

Some Spoilers Ensue: I adore sad anime. Most that are considered sad, however, don't really make me sad. They are just depressing and usually boring. This one though, this was sad. Extremely sad. I wouldn't dare put it in the same league as Clannad, but I cried on and off for most of the second half of the anime. You know what's coming pretty much the entirety of the show, yet, somehow, it still hurt so much when it happened. It was beautiful and serene and wonderful and I'm going to gush about it my entire review so sorry in advance. Story: It's a simple premise really. This is a high school (JR High?)...

ERASED

Some Spoilers Ensue: Alright, let's be real...this shit was good. During the anime's short season, I was so into it and I was loving the mystery and the premise was beyond cool. For real, you guys, I loved this a lot...up until the last few episodes. For one, I picked the killer, for two, I was pissed at the overall resolve. I hate and I mean HATE when a show is soooo good, and then fucks itself at the end with a cheap ending. I can even let go of the fact that I knew who the killer was if they would have just done a proper job with the showdown between the characters at the end...BAD FORM. Rant... See full review

Tokyo Ghoul √A

on

Some Spoilers Ensue: Ugh, this was a major step down from the wonderful first season. Poor Kaneki is sooo fucked up, it's difficult to see him come back. The problem was, we didn't really get to see him do much of anything. There were no explanations for his actions and I think that's what frustrated me the most. He is a great character, but this season he got hardly any airtime. Instead, we got to delve into the lives of secondary characters and even characters we didn't even know until now. I guess I just expected a different type of season after the cliffhanger finale of season 1. I mean, I know Root A... See full review

Psycho-Pass

Some Spoilers Ensue: So I went into this show late after hearing sooooo much about it and I must say, I came out impressed. It is a very intellegent, twisty, and ultimately fulfilling experience to watch. I enjoyed the numerous quotes and references to authors, along with the stunningly creative way said quotes and references were integrated into the plot. Story: It is ultimately a testament to humanity and what we believe to be a free and non-toxic society which ironically, we are wrong about here. The story centers around a new detective named Akane who comes to the task force right as a new/unfinished... See full review

Sword Art Online II

Some Spoilers Ensue: As a huge fan of the first season, I went into this expecting a lot. Granted I was a little let down in part 2 of the first season, but it seemed the writers might be able to get back on track here...so SAO2 is broken up into 3 parts and I will review each separately. Part 1: GGO This arc started off pretty cool...I thought we were going to get an awesome new villain and the same death in the game/death in real life drama from the first season. I was looking forward to Asuna and Kirito kicking some ass in a new world, but sadly, that isn't what happened. Instead, we were introduced 2... See full review

King of Thorn

Some Spoilers Ensue: the beginning of this film was really really interesting...the medousa virus and cold sleep idea started this off with a bang, and the character development between Suzuku and Kasumi was opening up what looked to be a pretty cool survival story. it was a really cool survival story after these people woke up from their cold sleep also. The problem was once you were about an hour into the film, it flipped everything and basically used the medousa virus as only a backdrop to the real plot. this new plot line is where things got muddled. The entire ending was a mess. Though the film's lead... See full review

No Game No Life

Wow this show was totally awesome. I went in after hearing sooooo much about it and didn't really expect anything, but this show delivered. It better have a second season because I could marathon it for hours. Story: This show gets compared to Sword Art and Log Horizon often, but it really isn't like either. Yes, this setting is in a game world, but it is entirely diferent why and how these characters get here. Our two main ones are a (super close) brother and sister named Sora and Shiro. The are both NEETs and both highly intellegent...that is where things get fun. After entering the gaming world, they... See full review

Free! Eternal Summer

on

I loved this season. I really liked this show from jump, but this season is definitely the highlight. It had a better plotline, more side characters, and a truckload of feels. I hope they do a season 3 because this season was great. Story: So the drama between Rin and Haru is gone now opening up that friendship and taking out the jealousy aspect between the two. They are still on rival teams, and this season we get to know both of the relay teams which is great. Also, some of the cast is going off to college in the next year giving this season a lot more meaning. As the show progressed, I just fell more... See full review

Aww this show was sooooo cute! I love the power of friendship/slice of life anime. Though this one was a little slight, it still had some great moments. It brings back nostalgia from when I was on a team from elementary school thru high school. hmmmm :) Story: this story is about four friends who have known each other for a long time and swam together when they were little, but lost touch until 3 of them meet back up in high school to start a swim team. However, one of the members moved overseas to persue his dream of becoming an Olympic swimmer. Everyone has a bit of a story that unfolds when Rin who had... See full review

DRAMAtical Murder

on

Some Spoilers Ensue: Before I begin let me just say that the low scores are for the anime only. For those of you who don't know, this show was derived from an explicit yaoi dating simulator. The visual novel featured 12 different endings. There was usually a good, and at least one bad for every character. There was also a specific ending for Virus and Trip as well. The true end to the game was meant to be the true end to the anime. If you haven't played the game and don't mind gorgeous and explicit yaoi boy sex, I recommend you forget about what you watched, and invest the 30 or so hours into Dramatical... See full review

Tokyo Ghoul

Some Spoilers Ensue: Wow...that finale....I needed a few minutes after it ended. This show was brilliant. The genre of 'zombie' or what have you is extremely overdone right now, so a show coming out about ghouls who eat humans didn't seem like it would be that good. I was happily proven wrong about that. This is considered horror, and it is, which is refreshing since it's tough to find horror anime. Also, I love that this show didn't hold back on the character deaths and psychological turmoil, especially that which was inflicted on poor Kaneki in the last episodes. It was delivered well, and added a huge... See full review

I love this movie! Gorgeous animation, great imaginative story and characters, and an emotionally rewarding adventure are just some highlights throughout the two hour runtime. I was never bored, I was never feeling unsatisfied, and I couldn't look away. Bravo.... Story: a little girl embarks on a brilliant adventure after coming across an abandoned theme park now serving as a bathhouse for spirits. It comes complete with dragons, monsters and an evil witch, but it is unlike any other film I've seen. Animation: as I said, it is gorgeous. The characters and scenery were a joy to watch and the animation... See full review

Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi: Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai

Oh my fuck it's sooo cute...I adored this! I didn't so much like Yokozawa in the show, but seeing things from his perspective here really made me love him. He and Kirishima are perfect for each other. I liked Hitori too and I'm glad they referenced everything that went on between Yokozawa and Takano as well. He was so broken it almost made me cry. The way the relationship between the characters grew was lovely. Definitely a worthy addition to the show. I loved it. 7.5/10. Watched Subbed.

Some Spoilers Ensue... This season is hands down THEE best of the show so far. I just loved season one and two, but this one was absolutely gorgeous. It is probably my favorite anime airing this summer. It was engaging, disturbing, emotional, funny, scary, and ultimately heartbreaking. I always know when a show's good because as I reflect back on it, all I can think is how sad I am that it's over and how much I wish I could watch it again not knowing what the outcome would be like. Story: This season follows the manga almost exactly. It introduces a slew of new characters, all of which are vibrant and... See full review

Junjou Romantica 2

Now that's what I'm talking about...I had a difficult time with part one of this show because it was all a bit superficial and you didn't really get to know the characters like I hoped, but that all changed here. We got way more in depth into their backgrounds and the main story arc was just lovely. All in all, I can't wait for season 3. Story: Like I said, we got to go farther in depth to each character's line and some were just amazing. I was in tears in the last Shinobu/Miyagi episode and their character growth was much improved. Hiroki and Nowaki had some good episodes in this series as well, but the... See full review

I really liked this film. I had never had the pleasure of watching it when I was a child which unfortunately leaves me without the nostalgia feeling I'm sure a lot of young people feel viewing this again as an adult. It was very good though and unlike any other film I've seen.  Story: fun, imaginative and slightly suspenseful, I found myself thuroughly interested the entire 86 minutes of runtime. I loved the cat bus and Totoro was lovely. He is all at once menacingly scary looking, and completely benign looking. Mei and Suzuki were lovely and I adored the way they went about things. Even towards the... See full review

This anime was pretty hot. I would have loved to have seen an entire season of character development behind it because these characters could have been really worth the watch. It was very cute though and funny. The characters were cute as well and the sound and animation were both relatively good. I wanted more...that's the only problem. I would still recommend it for sure, just wish it was longer. 6.5/10 Watched Subbed.

This was goooood. The art was lovely, the characters were pretty developed and the scenes were hot. It was funny and kinda cute even though Morinaga totally took advantage of the situation.

After Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi, I was feiending for another lovely yaoi. I liked Studio Deen, so I figured id stay with them and watch another of their most popular. I was pleased with this show, and also a bit disappointed because the characters weren't as good in this one. I think maybe my expectations were too high. This is not to say it was bad at all, in fact it was quite good, but judging it agains S.I.H. I much prefer that one. Story: it has three different love stories linked up together by work. The main story between Misaki and Usami is really good. It's my favorite of the three and these characters... See full review

Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi TV 2

Oh my God...I think I may have found a new favorite show. Honestly, it really doesn't have much plot. It is slice-of-life and very soapy, but I was seriously addicted during, and really sad when it was over. They could have made like six more seasons and I would have gladly marathoned all of them. I wouldn't mind the love scenes to be a little more risky, but they were all good. I also wanted the uke characters (especially Ritsu) to show a little more vulnerability. All in all, every storyline and set of characters was interesting and emotional to watch. My favorites were Takano and Ritsu for sure. Takano... See full review

Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi

Awesome beginning to such a wonderful show. I note to watch these 2 OVAs before the full show so you have some slight background. The first OVA is about Ritsu, our protagonist, and Saga who you find out later in the show is still around. The second story is about Tori and Chiaki and it's a little more straightforward than the first. Both stories give you an intro or prequel to the show and both of which hooked me right away. I preferred the first to the second, but still, I love all of these characters now that I've watched everything as a whole. Animation, and Characters along with what I think of the...

I love this showwww! It is so good man...the back and forth between stories and the dialogue was just everything. Even when I worried it would get cheesy, it didn't. It's BL which I love and its very romantic. My favorite storyline is Takano and Onodera, though all three are good. I just can't wait to watch part 2. This show is super addictive and pretty much a giant ball of fluff. It reminded me a little of a fanfiction the way it plays everything out, but don't take my word for it, just watch it.

Deadman Wonderland OVA

on

Yay an OVA about Senji! He is by far the best character in my opinion, so watching an episode devoted to his past sounded epic. It isn't that the episode was bad, it was just cliche. I wanted him to have a more badass background and maybe see why he was put in Deadman Wonderland as a prisoner. The animation, as with the show, was on point. Senji's branch of sin was epic as always and the villain in this chapter had a decent B.O.S. also. It just seemed like the fight could have been done a little crazier. It didn't really hold a candle to some of the battles in the show. the voice acting and music were... See full review

Every episode felt suspenseful and exhilirating. The story was interesting from jump and Wonderland itself was worth exploring. Animation: As I stated, this anime is hyperstylized and very gorey. That is definitely a good thing. Watch it unedited if you can because it is gorgeous. The Brances Of Sin are all unique... See full review

This was a very interesting watch. I was leary a bit to go into another show about vampires. They've been so played out, I didn't know if this would be able to spin the story well enough to keep my interests. I was happily proven wrong within the first few episodes. Yes, if you are hearing it starts slow, it does. It is a very slow paced and quietly unfolding story (until the last 6 episodes or so). However, the slow pacing, for me, added to the overall epicness that was the ending. Also, don't think when I say slow paced that I mean boring. It's quite the opposite. It's like a...

These were a wonderful edition to an already amazing series. When I watched them, they were actually placed into my series as episodes 20.5 and 21.5. They center around characters we have seen and know maybe a little about (Nao in particular) and they give a little background into what is happening to them during the vicious final episodes. We start with Nao's story. This first episode is edge of your seat intense and completely ruthless. I absolutely loved it.

The plot started as kind of a Battle Royale/Hunger Games type of thing, but quickly morphed into its own unique survival story. I was literally on the edge of my seat for this show. By the end, it was teetering at the top of the pain scale because every episode seemed to hurt worse than the last. I know it's hit or miss for a lot of people, but I really enjoyed the reveal and the ending. They foreshadowed early on by naming the time god Dues Ex Machina. You had to... See full review

Before you watch this it is imparitive to have watched the show first. You will jip yourself of all the emotion an beauty of the story if you don't. Honestly, for a fan, it's cool to see some extra scenes and things like that, but these we're sort of useless. The movie is an hour and 20 minutes of "previously on" and its kind of a waste of time. It highlights certain things and the characters are all back to tell the story, but you're seriously better off just leaving it be. The last 20 minutes are new and basically give you a bit of filler to hold you over for the new season. Though, they may... See full review
