Kizuoibito

on Mar 22, 2015

If you thought that the same people who made Wicked City made this then you're wrong but I can't blame you for thinking it. It has pretty much the same problems as Wicked City; constant mindless violence and constant sex derail the plot. The journalist gets raped in the hopes that this would scare her away (awfully minor thing to rape someone over) and you would expect that this would ruin her life and lead her to stay inside and cry all day but no, she tags along with the rapist in his adventures. I'm dead serious. This is the worst handling of a sensitive, depressing and widespread subject that I have... See full review

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

on Oct 19, 2013

The original Gundam show was a fairly entertaining show in of itself and in starting the Gundam franchise in earnest it did anime an enormous favour. The ride hasn't always been smooth either for Tomino the director or for those of us disappointed at the few flops in amongst this metaseries made up almost entirely of mediocre, good and sometimes masterpiece titles. Zeta Gundam is one of these masterpieces.                            Anybody who's seen the original Gundam won't find it hard to point out why Zeta is even better and by a... See full review

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT

on Aug 20, 2013

(Contains some spoilers and the opening paragraph is all one 11-line sentence, a long sentence by me, no surprise there.) It's been a disappointing 2 albeit not yet complete years both personally (though that's nothing new when you have depression, live in a working class town and your parents were abusers who were themselves abused) and anime wise; almost every bad or mediocre anime I've ever seen, regardless of what year they were released, have been viewed by me in 2012 or 2013 while literally only about 2 good anime that I hadn't seen before have been watched by me in these 2 years and Boku Wa...

Colorful

on Aug 1, 2013

Go ahead, call me a reactionary after seeing all of the below (even though I'm pro gun control, pro-environment, pro-Palestine and anti-censorship) but given the illusion of knowledge I've learnt that people don't make judgements based on reason, just self interest so you shouldn't care much what they think. I hate this anime on a number of levels; it's boring, it gives the misandrists more ammunition (as if we men weren't adept at screwing up our own already awful reputation as it is) and one of the worst anime I've ever seen is directed by the director of one of the best anime I've ever seen; the...

Yuyushiki

on Jul 22, 2013

Disclaimer Being by me this won't be short, will jump around a bit for the sake of giving a fitting example where needed and you probably won't agree. =============================================================== It seems around here that nobody who comments will agree or vice-versa but here I review again anyway. It's yet another one of those anime where the premise and the plot are the same. There's a club, they do stuff. Just like Lucky Star, Genshiken and Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai, and they are entire FRANCHISES. Unlike in Genshiken or BWTGS however in Yuyushiki they can't manage to do the same...

Yobou-san to Yoboushiyou

on Jun 28, 2013

This is by far the most obscure anime I've ever seen. It manages to be far more obscure than even Sorette Dakara Ne. This anime is basically advice about brushing your teeth for children, then pregnant women and then old people.

Tokio Heidi Stand

on Jun 27, 2013

A stupid song plays while nothing is happening then these 2 sisters are manning a food stand when a black American woman, complete with accent, orders some food. They tell her not to swallow but it's too late so then she goes like a balloon and floats off.

Nanako no Orusuban

on Jun 27, 2013

Nanako's mother leaves the house for a while so Nanako is home alone with her black rabbit. She colours, looks out the window and so on until her mother returns and hugs her and then they make dinner together. The animation is even more basic than the story but this is an OK anime in spite of the consensus that it's terrible. As usual people are judging something too much on how it looks and too little on how well it accomplishes its purpose. Though I'm not really sure what the purpose of this particular anime was...

Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ: Gundam Frag.

on Jun 26, 2013

If there's one thing I've learned about anime it's that DVD Specials are mediocre and therefore not worth one's time. I'm not quite sure what they were thinking with this one; it's just a bunch of short videos played on an internet video-looking window showing the usual Gundam stuff; testing out a Gatling gun, sand clogging up the mech and so on. Gundam fan or not, give this one a miss.

Sailor Moon S

on May 31, 2013

Right, I'm going to pull out my dart rifle and shoot the elephant in the room right away. Anyone who came here hoping for some lesbian action will most likely be disappointed, the most intimate thing Haruka and Michiru do is hold hands, indoors (fully clothed). Anyone who decided that watching this anime would somehow do something for the gay movement will also be disappointed because in one episode the other Senshi (apart from Haruka and Michiru) suspect that Jupiter is a lesbian becuase of her hero worship of Haruka with 2 or 3 saying that that would be a bad thing. At no point did any character say... See full review

Boku no Imouto wa "Oosaka Okan"

on Apr 28, 2013

When it comes to anime people often get it right though they often get it wrong and this is one of those anime where they got it wrong. Sure, it's very formulaic and the animation is barely OK but it's educational and not boring. Every episode starts off with the male lead introducing his sister who was away from him for 10 years because of family circumstances as the camera is focused on her. She then says something odd which you would have preferrred not to hear. A few things happen followed by an Osaka Tip saying "Osaka people do/think/like this" followed by his sister saying "that's how... See full review

Wicked City

on Apr 11, 2013

Wicked City is terrible. I went into it expecting to like it with its interesting premise but gave up a few minutes in. Little did I know it would get far, far creepier and I'm not one who reacts to horror films much one way or another. It took me years to go back and finish watching it just to mark it as watched and even then half of the time I was doing something else while it was going on. This movie is like a recurring nightmare with the same things happening again; a woman turning out to be a demon (twice), seduction (three times) and rape and attempted rape 5(?) times. The whole idea of the movie was... See full review

Bokurano

on Apr 2, 2013

Bokurano affected me. I don't mean the mood, I can certainly handle depressing anime, what I mean is the quality. Bokurano, like Gundam SEED Destiny, is the sort of anime where I watch it knowing it's bad but not too bad and with its interesting premise there's a good anime just waiting to come out so I keep watching it, waiting patiently for the good anime to emerge. It never does and I give up. With Bokurano however I had made it to the last episode so I finished it off.                                     ... See full review

Pokemon

on Apr 2, 2013

In my boyhood I loved Pokemon but even at the young age of 10 or so I realised about 100 episodes in that they're all the same. Now a lot, most or even all anime are forumlaic to some degree but most don't go on for a few hundred episodes and are less formulaic. The formula is this: Step 1: Our heroes are lost again (as they have been for weeks now even though in Red and Blue you could have beaten every gym leader, member of the Elite Four and champion in one day, I know videogames and TV shows aren't the same but this is ridiculous). Step 2: Team Rocket are out to steal Pikachu (because there are so few... See full review

Gundam Wing

on Jun 15, 2012

Opening Remarks Gundam Wing belongs to what I classify as the 2nd Age Of Gundam, i.e it came out after 1993. I classify Gundam Ages like so because the first Gundam show that wasn't set in the Universal Century timeline came out in 1994 and it was G Gundam. Gundam Wing was the first Gundam show I had seen and only when I started watching it again years after it was no longer shown on TV did I remember that it wasn't the original Gundam show and from then on I became a Gundam otaku. Watching Wing as a 7 year old autistic kid from what was rural Ireland I couldn't help but be impressed by this action packed... See full review
