Nisekoi

on

I want to begin the review by saying that if you are one who has just entered the broad world of anime, Nisekoi may seem quite cute and heart-touching to you. But if you are an otaku who has experienced many romantic animes before, watching Nisekoi would simply be a time waste. The story really has nothing special, absolutely nothing! A total cliched story where the hero is confused about whom to choose and three girls fighting over him. I really liked the starting, rather loved it, when they said Raku and Chitoge, being the members of two opposing groups, have to act as a couple to save the... See full review

Right, it's confession time for me. If you have been reading my reviews than you may have noticed that I tend to rip the anime a new one. There is a reason for this though and it has to do with the fact that I can't turn my brain off when watching anime. I can't ignore the stupid shown in the anime and this is a problem as most anime are very stupid indeed. In this case I'm not talking about a 90 pound girl catching a multi-ton cruise missile and throwing it back. Yes, it is stupid but it is a stupid that I'll allow. It's anime. Things like this are normal here and I'm pretty much fine with it. It annoys... See full review

Soul Eater Not!

on

Well I finally watched it! Soul Eater Not!
And I have to say, it met my expectations and lifted off. I enjoyed wathcing this and I really enjoyed when I saw the original characters for the nostalgia. 
I think the main problem I have is trying to figure out when this story took place. As from what I gathered it happened when Sid died, but when Shaula was doing her thing, does that mean Medusa's attack never happened? Or is this an alternate universe? It just doesnt add up for me.

Now the story. It was VERY well made in my opinion. We actually kind of saw the backstory to the weapons and... See full review

The Irregular at Magic High School

on

The series is split into 3 arcs Episodes 1 to 7 - Enrollment (7 episodes) Episodes 8 to 18 - Nine Schools Competition (11 episodes) Episodes 19 to 26 - Yokohama Disturbance (8 episodes) It plays out in a future where due to Global wars identities and territories of Nations have been redefined (but with Japan remaining as such) and "Magic" is a technological advancement that the future society heavily depends upon. The people who do no  not have the ability to wield magic efficiently or at all are considered inferior and this mindset reflects in the policies & attitudes of fellow... See full review

HEED MY WARNING PEASANTS AND STEER CLEAR OF THIS WRETCHED PIECE OF DEVILRY.. Why in the name of all that's holy is this anime rated so high?Seriously why?The story even though some might say is an interesting idea,the writers certainly weren't bothered to exploit it..Maybe they saw a nice restaurant on the opposite street and went for a bite instead..Just bits and pieces glued together in a hurry. The animation is..No other words,DANGEROUS.It's a brutal abuse of the gift of sight.It's even worse than the ones u might see in the 90's era..It's even worse than that to be honest.It's a cry for help.The...

[Edited] If it sounds chinese but looks japanese....the hell is it!? The chinese have an okay animation sense, but aside from the voices, nothing really distinguishes it from other Japanime. Without a doubt it lacks a chinese feel to it. The plot Story's a 6.2  for being predictable, however it has some pretty good humor, so not bad, but not original, the animation's a 9, because the animation was good (But the animation of the characters are a 7) Sound is 7 (Love the Op but the rest is pretty standard. Characters are 5 because they follow the stereotypes set by the Japanese. Overall 6.2, And only... See full review

Minarai Diva

Firstly, I'd like to admit I did not watch the entire show. I barely watched one and a half episodes, so my review is based solely on that experience. Animation/Sound The first thing I want to talk about is the sound and animation together, as this isn't a regular anime. This show is actually aired LIVE using one of those vocaloid CGI programs. While sections of the show are pre-recorded, many parts are actually filmed using the two voice actors as actors, who control their CGI counterparts. The beginning of the show actually shows the studio, staff, and actors preparing. This is actually... See full review

Yuri!!! on Ice

"Yuri!!! on Ice" is the absolute best ingenious click-bait of the season. Japanese Yuri means lesbian love and is one of the most common feminine names. Next time Name it something like YOI on Ice!!, Ice Benders , or Fags in a Freazer. That's all well and good, but why do I not see the tagging or descriptions for this inclusion? Any way you look at its subterfuge. It's bait of the lowest order, it's a lie because of intent. At first, the name "Yuri on Ice" drew my attention and I thought " Ohhhhhh so it would be girl on girl stuff" Then I saw the picture and thought... See full review

Scary woman meets laid back amnesiac; trials, tribulations and troubles ensue. Story: I wasn't expecting this to be very good in all honesty. The synopsis sounded out right dumb. But when I watched this for the first time, and yes there has now been a second time which is why I decided to write this review, I was more than a little surprised at what I got. The story is slow to start and even a little confusing but as it gets rolling you realize you're in for a little ride. Animation: It's not that hard to get a rom/com drawn right, and they didn't disappoint here. The characters are adorable, easy to tell... See full review

      Ao-Oni is one of the most well-known of RPG Maker games, as if you were to go and talk to someone about the best and the worst, you'll hear mixed reactions about Ao-Oni somewhere in that conversation, or maybe not. Some people consider Ao-Oni a great game, spawning other fan games to accompany that one, while some may argue how memorable and scary it really is. No matter your thoughts on the classic--the game had a large following with its fanbase and became very popular. Now, the main problem with the anime is not that the story structure is off and the pacing was off-beat as well... See full review

Omg I love this anime so much that I will always be desperately checking every week whether the new episode is out or not, as well as the subtitles. I don't normally watch animes relating to BL (fangirls dont kill me thanks :) ) but this anime is one that caught my attention. The main female character is surprisingly not the shy type (because most reverse harem animes like dance with devils involve girls who are calm and reserved). This anime female character however is really funny and engaging, even a girl who is not an obsessed BL fan like me can relate to her XD. I really love her character as she... See full review

Kimi no Na wa.

Lol I watched this movie on the plane and if this movie kept me awake instead of dozing off, I would say it is a great movie. I love the animation and sceneries, they just gave me a refreshing feel. I was kind of impressed that this would interest me as I do not frequently watch body-switching animes. However, I do know that most animes of this type of genre have similar plots as well so it can be cliche to people who watch this genre often. I feel like it would be a wonderful movie if you ran out of animes to watch and would like to enjoy some light comedy with time travelling.

Night Raid 1931: Prophecy

on

A recap of the series from episode zero (Shipboard’s Shoot DVD Special) to episode six.  This recap was very helpful, as throughout the series they’re a little too light on details pertaining to our main characters. It’s also very helpful for those who aren’t fully informed on the conflicts between Japan and China from the turn of the twenties century up until the time after World War I.  This also pretty much splits up the series (as it was meant to be viewed after episode six) from one off episodes to a seven part serial having to do with Isao and his plans. ...

Fuyu no Semi

If you don't want a sad story, don't watch this. It's like a Japanese yaoi version of Romeo and Juliet.....only I don't remember the ending to Romeo and Juliet being that depressing!  Overall, this is a really good anime with a great story. It almost fits more in the shounen-ai genre than yaoi, but there is some sex. Like many animes set in the same time period, it's very informative and focuses on the setting, what was going on in Japan at the time and the important historical events, as well as the story, which in this case, was the love between two men on oposite sides of the war.  The theme...

I've just watched it and didn't expect much of Urobutchers personal touch on it, which is fine since a story doesn't have to be mature, gritty, brutal, bloody, or deep to be very enjoyable. I liked this very much, even though its completely different from Gen Urobuchi's other work like Madoka Magica and Saya no Uta in that the story is simple, and pretty much predictable when you come face to face with Frontier Setter. I switched to the dub about a 3rd of the way through and I am glad that I did, Johnny Yong Bosh is my absolute favorite voice actor, especially in Code Geass as Lelouch. Naturally as an AI he...

Written for Secret Santa 2016 Look, I’ve watched plenty of ecchi fighting anime where the clothes explode off a girl because someone put chi into a punch. But I don’t think anything prepared me for the middle-of-the-road meh-fest that was Ikkitousen. It doesn’t have the humor-factor that made Tenjo Tenge fun. It doesn’t have the interesting powers that Sekirei or My-Hime brings to the table. It has a rather uninteresting plotline that when looked at has more holes than swiss cheese. I’ll go into more detail below. Story: It starts off simple enough. There are... See full review

The Lost Village

on

Usually, in anime's everyone is depressed and it's just cliche, however in this anime it gives the selected people reasons to be upset, and they try their best to rid of the sadness. The idea of nanaki village was amazing, and you'll probably agree once you watch the anime. If you're expecting the same thing as Another, don't. This is much more entertaining as I personally got bored of Another rather quickly. The only flaws I really see is how they aren't very good at measuring the characters, some are more obsolete as others even though it's suppose to be a 'group story.' Jack is a good example of this.

Darker than really dissappointed me I expected a superb anime especially considering its really high rating. The story I don't think is very intresting and alot of things remained unexplained like how hells gate came to be or how someone becomes a contractor. Speaking of contractors there people with super powers and everytime they use their power. They need to pay a price often a painful or tedious task. For instance there is a character who needs to bake a cake every time she uses her powers or even better Mina Hazuki of the sequel who is a lesbian must kiss a guy after she uses her powers.

Nobunaga Concerto

Nobunaga Concerto belongs to the Isekai subgenre, where people from our world are mysteriously transported to others. It doesn’t follow the degraded form most of them have today, being an excuse for otakus to form harems in fetish infested settings. Meaning, Nobunaga is not a half naked loli. Yes, that’s an actual trend in anime.

It’s not well animated, since the combo of motion capture and CGI heads throws it right in the middle of the uncanny valley. Even if you get used to the weird motions of the body, the facial expressions, a vital aspect of likability, have a robotic feel to... See full review

Overlord

Let me start out by saying that I would love to give this show a better review. It has a rather popular theme but with a slightly different twist, some background elements that lend to a broader story, and a plot that lends to a long series of events. All the makings of a good show are there except for one thing, time. Unfortunately this is a 13 episode trailer for the comic. You get a good feel for the story and some of the characters but ultimately its rushed to a conclusion that isn't even close to the end leaving you wanting more and feeling very unsatisfied.

Unlike the last two OVAs, this episode seemed as if they were planning a second season that got nixed after they'd already finished it's first episode. Story - 8/10 Occurring after the events of season one, this episode focuses almost solely on Kazura, a character who almost felt relegated to a minor status in the series. For this one episode he is tasked to look into a planned coup happening within the army, and report back to the superiors. In the end he must choose which side he believes in, each possibly causing himself or those he cares for harm, be it directly or indirectly.   ... See full review

I adore this anime and all of it's beautiful, unique elements. Gosick has this mysterious, strange vibe that I fell in love with from the very beginning. How an anime can get so dark and painful, but also include amazing bits of humor and love is what makes it so charming. Not only did the different genres mix wonderfully, I actually found myself growing insanely attached to the characters. Their odd, alluring personalites drew me in immediately, and the more I learned about the characters, the more I cared for them.  If you are wondering if I cried, I did.

It's actually one of the best written ones, managing to feel a lot more fun and light hearted than most of the other parts which want to take things too seriously. Don't get me wrong, you'll still cringe at times (naked elementary schooler groping a sleeping man's cock and saying "no way that'll fit"), but overall, it's better than most of this series. Yeah, if you got this far on the list of things out of... See full review

Kodomo no Jikan: Ni Gakki

on

Dead horse, beaten. Kodomo no Jikan has run it's course, and should have died. The gimmick has gotten old, they don't get points for audaciousness anymore, and quite frankly, this is filler for filler's sake. The main character (which the show barely attempts to hide her as being second to the teacher anymore) gets some character development, but then beats it into the ground. But it removes the aspect of her as a naive child in favor of showing her trying too hard to be an adult. This makes this a lot sadder than it should be. Of course, this is just forced drama, and a cheap attempt to show that her... See full review

Kodomo no Jikan: Rin's Classroom Diary

on

Yeah, this is just a recap of the series and the first OVA, which is slightly less fan servicy and more about the touching moments. It doesn't make it better. If you already watched the series, you don't need this. If you haven't watched the series, watch that. Waste of time, skip.

Kodomo no Jikan: Anata ga Watashi ni Kureta Mono

on

OK, so you've seen Kodomo no Jikan and you came back for more. You probably aren't going to dislike it as much as I did. It's a missing part of the first season, and plugs in some of the plot holes there (which anyone could sufficiently gloss over, and as such were skipped). I was able to somewhat tune out the lolicon implications, so I'll just crush this a little less. The animation is somewhat improved over the series, and the audio is still pretty good. When outside of the fan service, it's actually pretty good. The still frames do a better job conveying the emotions in the show. That being said, the... See full review

Akame ga Kill!

on

The anime starts off great, and follows the manga up to a certain point. Its well animated and I enjoyed watching what I read in the manga come to life. However, towards the end it just skips an entire section of the manga (probably cuz it was "to violient" and "depressing") and it just gets horrible. The story doesn't hold up to what the manga is going for (which is a hundred times better). The writing and story plot is just boring and predictable to no end after this and just a train wreck of "lets kill everyone cuz it's shocking!!" I wanted more from this anime and I just...

Kodomo no Jikan (2007)

on

Getting it out of the way: eww, eww, eww. Ecchi with nine year old girls. And not subtle ecchi. No, blatant and extremely intentional sexual situations between a grown man and a nine year old girl. Eww. Kodomo no Jikan could have been a great show had it not been so blatant in the way that the writers actually meant for it to be a full-on sexual relationship but toned it down for sales purposes. Eww, eww, eww. But about what this show does right. I fully agree with the Japanese ideal that youth doesn't require a character to be completely asexual otherwise you are crossing some moral guideline. Everyone... See full review

Plastic Memories

on

Took me a little while to give this anime a shot. Continuously hearing pretty good things and the overuse of people saying "the feels" got me curious.

I was initially turned off mainly because of Isla's character model. The adorable white haired lolicon character is a very popular design that I've seen since Martian Successor Nadesico and never really cared for. But as I previously mentioned all of the buzz finally got me to watch episode one...and that's all it took.

At first you may think it's just a cute slice of life anime with an ensemble cast of tropes, from the Tsundere... See full review

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

on

Allright. It's been a while since I've done something like this so bear with me as I try to find my way again. Also I'm Dutch so there will be spelling errors. If you find them annoying give me a shout and I'll try to fix them. Oh, I will try to keep spoilers to a minimum but there will be some. Usually the worse I rate an anime the more spoilers this will contain. You have been warned So, you have probably already read what the animation is about in the discription given by Anime-Planet, which is the same as on the box. I will therefore try not go into the story that much unless I'm ranting about... See full review
