Score 6/10

This anime was going well for a while until I noticed that it was just one more average entry of its kind.   WHAT’S GOOD? If you don't mind traditional brainless anime with schoolgirls that have superpowers and monsters that seem to only affect them and nobody else, then go...

This seems to be a well-rated, popular series, but I dropped it after 5 or so episodes.  It just wasn't for me. WHAT’S GOOD? The animation is pretty good, eye-catching stuff. WHAT’S BAD? Mecha that air-surf on boards look cool for a short while and then just...

I am always in the lookout for grown-up anime, the ones that stand out from the crowd of supernatural schoolboy and magical schoolgirl me-too anime.  I was very pleasantly surprised with Code Geass, even though it had high school teenagers, mecha and some supernatural stuff, but the way...

I dropped this anime after about 8-10 episodes, even though it had a promising, dark first episode.  The problem was that very soon it just settled on the average, typical anime tropes instead of providing something new. WHAT’S GOOD? The animations is pretty good for the most...

Well, I did explain it was only after 5 episodes, so knowing that, you can make your own judgments about it. If I'm not enjoying something, I'm not going to force myself to watch many more hours of it, but I'll be honest to say that I only watched a portion of it. So, I was honest and forthcoming about the experience.  You don't have to like my review, but that's that.
