updated their review of B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time
-Story- I usually do not like ecchi anime, but B Gata H Kei does the one thing that will make me like an ecchi anime, and that is to make it funny. I was laughing throughout the anime. The jokes did not get stale over time as there where constantly new jokes throughout. I did not like how the...Read galacticdude7's full review

updated their review of Otaku no Video
I had been wanting to watch Otaku no Video for a little while now, but it was never really high on my "must watch" list. I had heard that it was a pretty good mocumentary of otaku culture, so I gave it a look.
While the story was interesting and had a great concept, it...Read galacticdude7's full review

updated their review of Welcome to the NHK!
-Story- I found the story for Welcome to the NHK! to be a compelling and unique one. I have never seen an anime with a plot like NHK. The story keeps you on the edge of your seat with suspense surrounding the characters next moves. There were also some moments that were so ridiculous that they...Read galacticdude7's full review

updated their review of Highschool of the Dead
-Story- The story of High School of the Dead is you basic zombie survival story that has been done so many times already. It really is not the most unique thing, but I still found myself liking it.

updated their review of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
-Story- The story in When they Cry can be complex at times and a bit confusing. The show is broken down into several different story lines that are all interconnected in some way, but it doesn't really seem that way. Despite the complexities and confusion, the story is still very great. The plot...Read galacticdude7's full review

updated their review of Excel Saga
I really liked all of the humor in Excel Saga, which I felt to be clever and original. I loved how seemingly random the whole thing was and there were many times when I just busted out laughing.

updated their review of Murder Princess
-Story- The story in Murder Princess was very action packed and kept you on a thrill ride throughout all six episodes. However this thrill ride did have its problems, which I felt that the series needed more episodes to properly explain and portray the plot line given. I was kinda iffy about the...Read galacticdude7's full review

updated their review of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
The story in Panty and Stocking was mostly pretty good. I found it to be quite hilarious in parts, but other times it seemed that some of the jokes were a little too low brow.

updated their review of K-On!
-Story- With a series like K-on!, there is an over arching story, but the focus is more on the individual episodes, which I really enjoyed. There was some pretty good humor too and the adventures of the light music club were really great. K-on! kind of reminded me of Lucky Star in some ways, with...Read galacticdude7's full review

At first I thought that the premise to 'My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute' was pretty interesting, but as the show progressed, it kind of let me down.

-Story- The story of Big Windup is for the most part entertaining. I was glad that they made the whole game that they were playing entertaining, and not just the 9th inning.

updated their review of Cat Soup
-Story- Since Cat Soup is such a non-sequitor and expiramental anime, it is hard to review in conventional terms. There really is no story to rate, but Cat Soup is so interesting and entertaining, that holding the lack of story against it is a crime unto itself. Cat Soup is probably the strangest...Read galacticdude7's full review

updated their review of Strawberry Marshmallow
-Story- In Slice-of -life animes, the plot is not as critical and is more dependent on comedy instead of leaving the audience on the edge of their seats. So it may seem that the plot is non-existant in Strawberry Marshmallow, but it doesnt need a big and grand plot to be good, it needs great...Read galacticdude7's full review

-Story- To say that RomeoXJuliet is based on the play Romeo and Juliet is just sheer insanity.

Maken-ki! is an anime that was never really sure what sort of show that it wanted to be.
