updated their review of Honey and Clover
Story: Usually I'm not the one to like slow paced series but Honey and Clover never felt slow to me. It felt well paced and well developed. The series is very character driven but that's not a bad thing. The timing is quite realistic without things feeling too rushed or happening too quickly...Read nasreen10's full review

updated their review of Blood-C
Story : This is one of the first series that I completely started anew with. Every week was the only new information I got about Blood-C. I finally understood what people mean when they say a series is slow. Waiting every week for something new to happen can be frustrating. That being said...Read nasreen10's full review

updated their review of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
Story : The series starts off with an interesting premise. However, I think it falls flat while resorting to the typical high school scenes (festival, karoke, beach) without offering too much. I did think there was a decent amount of humour and I did laugh quite a bit. However, the ecchi was a...Read nasreen10's full review
Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem...
updated their review of Kuroshitsuji
Plot: A very promising premise but I felt it disappointed a little. The beginning of the series felt very episodic with only a few flashbacks and bits that hinted toward a solid plot. The second half delivered a lot more but I felt was confusing. Much is not said explicitly so you have to...Read nasreen10's full review

updated their review of Death Note
Story : If I had to give rating for the first arc, it would be a 10. If I had to give a rating for the second arc, it would be about an 8.5. If I had to give a rating to the 3rd arc, it would be about a 4. Death note started out really great but towards the end it killed it. The third arcs...Read nasreen10's full review

updated their review of Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge
Story : After watching Ouran High School Host Club, I heard of this and was pretty gung-ho on watching this due to the similarities. However, Wallflower(this is how I'm going to refer to it throughout the review) was nowhere near as good. The premise started well enough but fell a little flat. I...Read nasreen10's full review

updated their review of Usagi Drop
Story: Never knew slice of life could be so realistic and beautiful. There is little overdramatic or surprising that happens throughout the series. It's simply about a man in his 30's getting a daughter who is 6. It's heart warming, and cozy feeling. Episodes just fly by without needing to...Read nasreen10's full review

Story: Oh Azumanga Daioh, how amusing you are. Light and humorous and flowing as well. I felt myself laughing all time while reading this. From all the little quirks and oddities, Azumanga isn't short of comedy and fun. Nothing to heavy and I never found myself bored. The ending was fitting and...Read nasreen10's full review

Story : I'm usually not much for gore but I was really interested in this series for some reason. It starts of with a very interesting premise with Ganta going to the prison Deadman Wonderland for a crime he doesn't commit. It continues the madness and insanity through all the episdoes.

Story: An entertaining love story. School Rumble has to be the epitome of a romantic comedy. It truly is love and comedy. Their antics are hilarious and the way the show is split works perfectly.

updated their review of The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
Story : I've mentioned this before but anime movies usually disappoint me. They like a really long filler episode. However, that did not apply to Vanishment of Haruhi Suzimaya.

updated their review of Blue Exorcist
Story : This series was made prematurely. It should have waited longer until it had more content to work with. It started off well but ended disappointly. I will come out and say that I am a fan of the manga and I was sad to see that it turned out like this. I liked the idea but it just didn't...Read nasreen10's full review

updated their review of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
Story : I'm not usually a fan of mecha or political series. I'm especially not a fan of series involving stragies because I usually don't understand what's going on. For example, in Death Note, I need all of that explanation or I really would have no clue what was going on. However, Code Geass...Read nasreen10's full review

Story: This anime felt like a hodgepodge of different genres and concepts put into one. Usually, it makes for a confusing and inconsistent series. However, that’s not quite the case.

Story: I didn't have too many high expectations on this series. It's based on a game. Imagine the game in anime form basically.

updated their review of Soul Eater
Story: Soul Eater lacks the most in the story portion. Not to say that it is not good, but the conclusion of the most of the conflicts end anticlimactically. They build up an epic battle only to end the viewer feeling disappointing. However, that is one of the only few flaws I found in this...Read nasreen10's full review
