ecdrewello1 updated their review of Steins;Gate
Score 10/10

I can't say enough about this show... even though it kinda felt slow at the begining it really pulls you in and rewards you four your patience. Granted there are a few moments that can leave you with a "huh"? sort of feeling (ok for me this was mostly what happens with our friend the...

Score 8/10

Inu x Boku SS, (English: Dog X Me Secret Service) by the title alone brought to mind images of some sappy, otaku-pandering love-fest... however; as a sucker for yokai stories, and the alure of a promised "Kitsune" (Japanese fox-spirit) appearing as the "Inu" I decided to give...

ecdrewello1 updated their review of Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
Score 6/10

The artwork for this series is understated, and the landscapes are done in a style reminicent of watercolor paintings. I think this matches the tone of the story well. The story so far is a little slow to start, and has a shamless romantic element to it, without being totally silly. It's sort of a...

Score 8/10

This is in a simmilar line with Zetsubou Sensei, and like you'll see there's precious little that needs animation here. The majority of the skits take place back stage in a "rakugo" theater, a traditional format of Japanese comedy. The girls each have a diffrent personality that really...

Score 5/10

My oppinion after seeing the first episode. The absurdity of the premise for this anime is notable. In a world where studying tank warfare is the penultimate in feminity... a young girl who wants nothing to do with the sport because of a bad experiance in the past is coerced by the student...

Good for a quick giggle (3 min. eps). A large-breated kawaii assasin works the front desk of a Hotel in downtown Tokyo. The animation is cheesy looking, but that's OK for what this is.
