updated their review of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
Score 6/10

This is a fairly banal take on the recent anime formula - male protagonist surrounded by girls, stereotypical composition of female characters (the tsundere, the nerd, the dirty-minded one, the subservient one, severly underaged one etc.). The animation and music is consequently of an average...

updated their review of Trinity Blood
Score 7/10

My opinion of this work was fairly neutral to begin with. However, after a year or so since watching it, I strangely found myself wanting to see this one again. And so I did! This  is strange. The story and conceit, despite being fairly well thought out and quite complex, is nothing...

updated their review of Solty Rei
Score 7/10

Story - The storyline for Solty Rei is hardly original. An android girl appears out of nowhere to a group of protagonists, in this case the members of the Maverick Bounty Hunter Agency, and integrates into the group. Her past is slowly uncovered, revealing a (literally) galactic significance to...

Un-Go

These two share a supernatural, powerful sidekick, but the nature of the protagonist is very different. If you're after more of a comic touch, go for Majin Tantei; if you're looking for a cooler, intellectual (but darker) main character, go for Un-Go.

Steins;Gate

Both share a very clever juxtaposition of reality and delusion, though one turns out to be true, the other false. The 'truth' upheld by the protagonist is surreal but incredibly funny, and is reworked and remanifested throughout the series. They also end in a strangely reconciled romantic relationship between the protagonist and the another character usually caught in the middle of delusion and reality. Loved both!
