updated their review of Summer Wars
During my browsing in anime stores, I felt attired by the bright palette and interseting design of the cover. So I decided to check the movie out to discover that it made quite a buzz in animation communities. And then came the time to buy it to see if the quality was there or it was again...Read lelouchllover's full review

updated their review of Kuroshitsuji
And here it is! The review of the animated version of one of my favorites franchises. It is actually my third complete rewatch and I'm sad to say that this series did not charm me as much as my first watch three years ago. Black Butler or Kuroshitsuji is the first anime adaptation of the popular...Read lelouchllover's full review

So here it is. The review of the acclaimed Death Note series. Like it or not here it is. Enjoy. Oh and short as ever.
Opening: 1) The World by Nightmare. Excellent song that truly fits the Death Note atmosphere. The visuals are purely genius work. They managed to represents all the important...Read lelouchllover's full review

updated their review of Katanagatari
I really wanted to like this show more. But it greatly disapointed me.
The visuals were gorgeous. The music was awesome. But, overall , this show is lacking.
The story was not interesting ,quite simple and boring. The story lenght was short and previsible. The characters were underdevelopped...Read lelouchllover's full review

updated their review of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
I won't start by telling FMA or Fullemetal Alchemist' history. I reckon almost every otaku out there know at least this franchise by name alone. I haven't seen the original anime series and I haven't finished reading the manga so I won't compare brotherhood with it's predesessor. Instead I will...Read lelouchllover's full review

updated their review of Shiki
For me, this show was a blast begin to end. It was perfect during its airtime making it one of my perennial favorites. The story may be quite simple but the way it represents humanity is absolutely perfect and does make sense. It doesn't fear to go beyond morality making it sometimes hard to...Read lelouchllover's full review

updated their review of Bakemonogatari
This show is synonym of atypical. From the messed up story, passing by the strange and whimsical cast of characters of the animation style, this series breathes difference. Based on a Nisiosin work and produced by the Shaft studios , I quite enjoyed it.
It tells the story of Araragi, an...Read lelouchllover's full review

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt is a daring show produced by none other than the genius behind Gurren Lagann. A daring project in it's atmosphere, concept and realisation.

updated their review of 07-Ghost
07-Ghost, based on the manga by the same name, is one of those series you have to take with a pinch of salt. I did not read the original material and thsu I will not review this series as it should have been but exactly as I saw it.

updated their review of Monochrome Factor
Before watching this show, be aware that it is a shounen-ai series. Based on the manga of the same name, little it does to demarcate itself from others pitfalls of the genre. The story is somewhat simple and previsible. It is REALLY episodic and this is a no good. Some episodes just fell like...Read lelouchllover's full review

In 2011, Japan celebrated the 20th anniversary of the classic Sailor Moon manga by Takeuchi Naoko. Getting the vibe, I also wanted to retaste this utter classic by reading it, but inconveniently I could not find the original manga volumes. So I decided to go with the anime.

Darker than Black, with character designs from Iwahara Yuji, is a seinen series and you better keep it in mind when you watch it. If you're looking for light moe scenes, you won't find it here.

updated their review of Chi's Sweet Home
Chi's sweet home, adapted from the manga of the same name, is an atypic anime. It comes in a atypic presentation of 104 episodes of less than 3 minutes each. So everything runs fast. It is also difficult to review.
The story here is quite simple. A lost kitten, Chi, is found and taken to live...Read lelouchllover's full review

updated their review of Mononoke
This show is ultimately designed for either animation ( not just japanese anime) true appreciators or artists. If you,re not either of this two categories, I recommend you just pass your way because you'll probably won't understand the taste of the unique aroma of this series.

updated their review of Dance in the Vampire Bund
Overall, the story is quite confusing. The animation is quite good, but quite Shaft-ty and doesn't help the show improve. I mean it was quite nice but doesn.t fit the show style, thus making it incomprehensible at times. The art is quite neat and the music is ok.The characters are lacking.

Pandora Hearts, based on the manga of the same name by Mochizuki Jun, is often stated as Black Butler's sister series.
