Anime is like an abusive girlfriend.

I don't watch or review as much anime as I used to. My passion for the medium has slowly dwindled. Damn near every anime seems to be the same and the lack of anime that aren't for kids or sexually frustrated people makes it tough since I like when anime tell adult stories rather than try to sell daki's and figures.

All my reviews and opinions are my own. If you disagree that's perfectly fine, our brains are all composed differently which is the beautiful part of being a human being. If you agree that is fine as well. I'm not here to justify nor demean your personal preferences or favorite anime. I'm just providing snarky reviews for my personal entertainment and hopefully your occasional entertainment as well. 

Anytime you'd like to discuss anime, manga, or even movies hit me up with a comment. I'm down to conversate anytime.

Best Anime:
Big O
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Steins;Gate
Monogatari (take your pick)
Jojo
Black Lagoon
Shiki
Fate/Zero
Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom

I used to love Gigguk and Holden, but they haven't made anything in freaking ages, that Arkada guy with ponytail is pretty crappy reviewer, but at least he uploads regularly. And yes, Demo is also pretty good when he doesn't focus on random comedy too much. And that crap list guy (Chronexia I think) is actually sponsored by Crunchyroll now, how great.

From other reviewers I like Digibro, a former brony who got his channel shut down, but he is back now, he does decent analysis although he focuses too much on visuals. ShadowACS, GoatJesus, Riyoga and Hollow of Dawn are also pretty good analysts/reviewers.

I also like BobSamurai, he makes both reviews and various rants and news videos. Or reading The Nihon Review, their reviews, are short, but spot on most of the time.

Rori actually said the best anime years were 2005-2007, so he's not a complete nostalgia fag, he's just sick of otaku pandering like Miyazaki.

And his top 4 anime of last year were Wixoss, JoJo Stardust Crusaders, Daimidaler and Kill la Kill, plus Parasyte which hasn't finished yet. That's pretty weird taste to me. He also found Ping Pong to be boring.

And yeah, he cllearly hasn't watched all the anime he has claimed to, it's pretty obvious when you watch his seasonal overviews and read his reviews which he rarely updates after 3 episodes.

Oh boy, and if you think Rori is bad, there's this guy called DraconsMarch, he is even more of a stuck-up pesudo-elitist than Rori while seeing much less anime, plus he constantly deletes comments and blocks people who disagree with him, including me. His list is also ridiculous, over half of the anime on his list he dropped in first 2 episodes and gave them rating 1-2, I mean, I sometimes watch some crappy anime, but that is just ridiculous. The only reason he became popular in the first place is because he made videos bashing SAO. He and Rori even fell in argument once so they don't talk to each other now.

Anyway I am starting to get kind of mixed about him, while his YouTube videos are really informative and critical (Unlike people like Gigguk and that most subscribed channel which jsut makes lame top lists) and I like that he is not afraid to tear apart many shitty overhyped series. However, I really don't like how he has been acting recently with his holier than thou attitude and the fact that he is now a shameless e-beggar, although that's the trend among all anime and game reviewers now.

I'm also getting sick of him being a wrong generation fag constantly saying how all modern anime suck and retro is awesome and his blind hate on sport and slice of life anime because apparently there is not enough for him happening there.

He has also been going to reddit and 4chan now and they hate him even there lol.

Hi! I just wanted to say I am not dead and I managed to get interested in anime again after 2 and a half years thanks to new season of Durarara, I really like it so far, there are tons of new cool characters and there is less focus on high schoolers. I also picked up Shirobako since it seemed kind of interesting. And Parasyte, which is just awesome. Also, I got kind of tired of playing video games. Anyway, what anime would you recommend from this season/last 2 years?

The funny thing is, 3 years ago, Durarara was also the anime that helped to regain my interest in medium after I got bored of it. This feels too weird to be a coincidence.

And what do you think about Roriconfan and his new YouTube channel? he has been growing pretty succesful.
