Air

A travelling puppeteer, Kunisaki Yukito, has made his way to a small seaside town in search of a ‘girl in the sky’. After arriving in this town he found that his puppet show was not that popular with the local children and found himself without any money. After being woken up by a local girl, Yukito suddenly had a vision of the girl in the sky. Who is this girl and is she the one he has been looking for? Air starts of slow at the beginning and sort of drifts away from the main story because the story is still establishing itself and the main characters. I’ll say this upfront the story is...

Hayate the Combat Butler!!

on

Hayate no Gotoku!! is the next series of the excellent prelude Hayate no Gotoku!. When I began to watch this series I wondered how they could top their previous series and what would be in store for us. I was surprised after a couple of episodes in when I realised that the show when off in a different direction. The first Hayate no Gotoku was all about comedy and parody but the second season was slightly different. There were still parodies and spoof but there wasn’t as nearly as many as the first and they were far between. It was still funny but it was a different type of comedy. Hayate no Gotoku had...

Hayate the Combat Butler!

on

I can only think of one word to describe Hayate no Gotoku and it describes the show quite well. The word is ‘wow’. Yes, wow or maybe awesome would fit. The amount of comedy, references and spoofs in it is simply amazing. Not only has it got an interesting story, great characters and character mix but the way they incorporate other anime is brilliant. A little side note, you may want to wait and watch Hayate no Gotoku after you have covered a variety of anime. The thing that makes this show simply great is how it incorporate references from other anime and if you are unfamiliar with a lot of... See full review

Sora no Otoshimono Forte

on

Sora no Otoshimono Forte (Heaven’s Lost Property Forte) was surprisingly good. It built on the previously series incredibly well and improved on its lacking areas without losing any of the charm or comedy from the first series which made this anime so appealing. The story continues with the mysterious ‘new world’ plotting to dispose of Tomo-chan while he and the cast go on with their normal lives thinking that they are safe from attack. Eishiro, the leader of the new world club, is used as the vehicle to progress the story as he tries to discover more about the new world. Unlike the first... See full review

Sora no Otoshimono

on

Sora no Otoshimono (Heaven's Lost Property) has the typical story line for an ecchi anime, boy dreams of angel then she falls from the sky. Yes it is the typical story for this type of anime and you probably know what kind of episodes are coming up throughout the series but people don’t watch these because they are original, they watch because they either like the characters or like the way the story was told. At first I thought this was more of an episodic anime but don’t be fooled, Sora no Otoshimono has a subtle story that’s in play in the background but is only the main focus in the... See full review

Each night Asakura seems to visit a dream of a girl that he knows. What does this mean for Asakura and what does he learn from his dreams?

Seitokai no Ichizon

on

I got to say Seitokai no Ichizon was interesting. Not for its story, characters, animation or music but how it used popular anime a comedic way. I couldn’t recognize all of them but I did recognize most of them. Off the top of my head I got Dragonball, K-on, Bleach and the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Well there not much of a story, it’s an episodic anime with not much connection between the different episodes. Basically you are introduced to the characters and the audience is to rely on stereotypes to fill in the missing information. This formula does work because of the way the humor is...

Kare Kano

His and Her Circumstances (Kare Kano) is about a girl in her freshmen year at high school that is not what she seems to be. She masquerades as the perfect model student but under her disguise she is a totally different person. His and Her Circumstances is the story of how she releases her true self to the world and the things she discovers about herself. I really liked this story. It’s funny, touching and compelling. The mix of comedy and romance is near perfect and brings the story to life. The story is told with a lot of flash backs and through the thoughts of the main characters. Nothing is a...

Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~

Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ was very surprising, not only was it a lot better than the first series but I believe that Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ brought the show to a whole new level. The action was more exciting and fast paced, the comedy was funnier and laughs out loud material and the story was told much more precise way and in more depth. The story is the continuation of the first series and it is dubbed as the second phase of the Game Master’s game. Minato Sahashi continues to live with his sekirei at the Izumo Inn and with 5 sekirei it definitely gets very hectic. As the story continues... See full review

While taking a walk to decide his future a mysterious girl, Musubi, falls out of the sky and lands on him. Musubi is being pursued by two other women with the ability to control lightning. After helping her escape, Minato becomes her Ashikabi and his life will never be the same. I know what you are thinking, ‘it’s another typical harem/ecchi scenario’, which it is. This formula is very common but you know what they stay if it’s not broke then... See full review

Kanokon

on

Well what can I say about this anime? Well let’s start with the story. It is very typical of ecchi genre, the male lead lives alone and is chased by many girls, but I didn’t mind the stereotype too much because the characters were very likable and for varies reason I felt for them. The main character Kouta is the usual indecisive type but I can sort of understand in this case, with Chizuru and Nozomu throwing themselves at him, he has little time to breathe let alone make up this mind. Kanokon is quite funny in its own way. If you like the awkward situation, that are typical for ecchi/harem... See full review

Rozen Maiden: Traumend

Rozen Maiden Traumend is the continuation of the prequel Rozen Maiden. It starts off with Shinku regretting the demise Suigintou and thinking about what she will do when the Alice game starts. Meanwhile the appearance of the final two dolls sets in motion the final pieces to which the Alice game needs to begin. Since the story is the continuation of the first series, it’s on a pretty story footing. I liked where the story when and how it was told, although it was a little slow in the first two episodes. There are less “filler” episodes in this season which has its benefits however since... See full review

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi

The first thing I have to mention about Hoshizora e Kakaru Hash is the simply stunning animation and artwork. The first thing the audience sees is running water and dam is well animated but that’s just the beginning. The way the trees seem like they have individual leaves swaying in the wind and the birds flying in the ground sky brings the whole atmosphere, surroundings and story to life with a sense of awe. Now I look back on the story it’s your pretty standard for the harem genre with the same types of character but for some reason I was hooked, I had to watch all 12 episodes straight and I...

When I when to watch The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya I unwittingly began to watch it in the order it was broadcasted, now for those who don’t know the broadcasted order is not linear so I had a wft moment after I watched it because the first episode in the broadcasted order is actually the 11th one in the chronological order. Lucky I decided to watch the second episode, which is actually the first episode in chronologically, and it made more sense to me. So for those of you who are watching it for the first time make sure you watch it in chronological order it makes a whole lot more sense. Ok, with... See full review

School Days

on

I got to say I was really looking forward to watching this anime and I got to say the first 7 or so episodes were really good. To start I must warn people that this anime takes the harem genre to dark place. The idea of comedy isn’t present in the latter half of the series so if you’re looking for your typical light hearted harem then look someone were else. This anime is all about the jealousy, love and betrayal. If you are not prepared for a rough time emotionally then please pass on this anime, it might leave you a little emotionally wounded. I found that the anime became ridiculous towards... See full review

Kampfer is your typical harem with a bit of a twist the male lead, Natsuru, can transform between the sexes. Yes you read right, he can transform from boy to girl and back again. I thoroughly enjoyed idea because not only were people after this guy side but his girl side as well. I know the idea is not new, Ranma ½ comes to mind, but it is done in a way which was interesting and worked well. Kampfer has your typical characters, the dense male lead that is oblivious to the feelings of the girls around him, the shy girl, the energetic one and the smart, devise type. Each of these girls has fallen for... See full review

Until one day when he receives a package which contains a doll with almost life like appearance. Unknowing to danger Jun activates the doll which changes his life forever. Are you still with me? Good because aside from the general description this anime is actually quite good. The first episode is a little confusing however stick with it because the anime only gets better from there.
