ishmael1991 updated their review of Redline
Score 9.5/10

Story The consensus amoungst many is that this anime is simply worth watching for the animation, and the story is forgetable. When rating or reviewing the storyline of any form of media, it's only fair and accurate to take into account certain other production factors, which severly...

ishmael1991 updated their review of Clannad After Story
Score 10/10

Story Semi spoiler free Clannad afterstory suprised me. The first ten or so episodes are similar in nature to the frist series of clannad, however they are more enjoyable. Clannad did a very good job of making me laugh, but this was even funnier. From the first episode, i was amazed at how...

ishmael1991 updated their review of Clannad
Score 7/10

Story Minor spoilers only Clannad is mainly about families and romance. If you consider that Air was mainly about families, and Kanon was mainly about romance, Clannad is somewhere in the middle i'd say. The Anime starts off with the very likeable Tomoya okazaki talking about how he hates the...

Score 8.5/10

Story I can't be bothered to talk about the pacing and all the generic attributes of a storyline, as the message this anime preached and the effect it had on me is what i remember and the reason to watch it. I think most people would agree with me when i say the intention of a horror story...

Score 8.5/10

Story Chobits has a lot of very typical sub-themes, which one would expect in an anime about robots and romance. The main question mark hovering above the characters, and the viewer is can a relationship work between a machine and a person? Is it how you feel for the other half in a...

Score 4.5/10

Story I haven't that seen much of this anime only the first 6 episodes or so, but from what i saw the main story format seems to be very disjointed and mainly with the incentive of creating situations where there will be fanservice. The main protagonist is a...

updated their review of Kanon (2006)
Score 9.5/10

Story Kanons storyline is basically divided into sections. Each of the main characters has a deep emotional story, which makes the whole anime feel melancholic, rather than having a slow build up like Clannad. Infact, the first half of Kanon is structured very similar to the first half of...

Story Rather than being one story, each episode of ef- a tale of memories is spit into two halves, with 2 different stories. There is never any, cross over between the two storys, nor do they overlap. In other words, it would be fairly easy to seperate each episode into halves and reseqquence...
