updated their review of School Days
Score 6.5/10

This is a weird choice of anime for me to watch willingly, because I'm usually not into romance-based storylines. The reason I did watch it, though, is because the reviews I read told that it wasn't your typical romance series, and it has one HELL of an ending. I'm here to tell you that those...

updated their review of Ergo Proxy
Score 8/10

Ergo Proxy is a very confusing series, and you have a lot questions even after completing the series. But I think that's part of the magic of it. First off, I will admit the storyline is all over the place, but sort of well-structured at the same time. The first episode makes the series seem like...

Score 9.5/10

If you like shows that blend all kinds of genres almost seamlessly, you will love Cowboy Bebop. It blends almost every genre you could think of into its story. I wouldn't have been surprised if there was a musical episode somewhere along the way (unfortunately there wasn't :P) If you like shows...

updated their review of Trigun
Score 10/10

Considered an anime classic, and rightfully so, Trigun is everything you could hope for in a series. If you want to get into anime but don't know where to start, then I highly reccomend Trigun. It's a wonderful introduction to the world of anime. The storyline is, for the first two-thirds or so...

updated their review of Hellsing
Score 5/10

Overall, Hellsing is actually a pretty bad and horribly overrated series. But that's not to say it didn't have any redeeming factors whatsoever. It started off pretty well, the storyline was somewhat intriguing for the first half. But after a while, as the series began coming to a close, I felt...

updated their review of Cat Soup
Score 9.5/10

Oh my God. Wow. That was my reaction after I finished watching Cat Soup. It is a very weird, very creepy, but very very beautiful short film. The storyline (or what I gathered of it) revolves around two cats, one of whom is very sick/dying/possibly even already dead- who knows? - and the other...

What an amazing series this was!! FMA boasts one of the greatest storylines I think I've ever seen. Broad, epic and jam-packed with twists and turns it keeps you compelled for the entire 51 episodes.

Score 9/10

This is the movie that introduced me to the world of Miyazaki, and pretty much all anime. That's reason enough, I think, to call it my favourite anime movie, but I shall go into more detail in this review. The story is weird, imaginative and absolutely amazing. It starts off as the simple story...
