updated their review of Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya
Score 10/10

First, yes.  This anime is an alternate universe of the Fate/Stay franchise.  Given that I haven't watched any of the Fate/Stay franchise and I heard that this would be a good stand alone title, I wanted to see if it was truly stand alone and if it could be enjoyed without any knowledge...

updated their review of The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior
Score 5/10

I picked this up because I wanted something pretty, lighthearted, and a little romantic.  The series is packed with a lot of running gags and not much else. The cast felt a little underdeveloped.  Though I was aware of all their dirty little secrets, there wasn't any one character who...

Quite possibly one of the biggest titles of 2014, Kill La Kill has been hyped, cosplayed, merchandised, and practically worshiped.  For me, it fell short. Notibly the biggest issue for me was the predictable plot.  To avoid spoiling it for people, I won't go into depth with this...

This was quite possibly one of the worst shows I have ever watched - and that's saying something.  This wasn't even one of those shows that's so terrible it's hilarious either.  It was just awful. The animation was muddy and ugly.  The average soundtrack was completely wasted on...
