When you see Angel beats if you have no idea of what you whatch it's really strange for the first apperance. But, The story put you in the action faster then I was thinking for a drama. The animation is amazing there are 3D in it it's fluent nothing to say about it for a 2000 decay serie. The music is pretty well it's fits with the embiance.and the opening and ending have something new to show when you pay attention when you see some episode. For characters they are more then basic but for the short serie they don't have time to show all the background of all the characters in it. Overall it's a... read more
I'm surprised there's no negative point of view for this anime. I'll add mine then, it's more how I feel than a review. There's 2 big love stories in Kimikiss Pure Rouge. One involves what we can call the main protagonists, and is awful. The second involves what we can call important characters and is way way better in all the aspects. For the main love story : This is mostly a copy/paste of all the bad things... of all the things in Suzuka. The male protagonist is boring as hell, undecided, it's 23 episodes of him who don't know what he's doing with its ignorant head. But anyway, he's the main... read more
I think this anime is really good. Although i've seen better, this is still pretty nice. Though I would not suggest this for people who cannot stant blood, torture ect.
This is a comedic anime , of course it won't take itself that seriously. The introduction(1st ep) wasn't as great however if you continue on in this anime you can find yourself attached to many of the characters , they're personalites are all well-built and it gives you the real feeling of an adventure. The comedy is more for preteens or just teens , I am not a fan of comedy anime however this anime gives an outstanding impression of fantasy. It's going at an extremely slow-pacing so I don't know if they actually will attain their goal. It's outstanding on how they did their characters! The design choices... read more
Brilliant anime but slightly disappointed that the plot didn't follow the light novel it was based off. Nevertheless still one of my favourite anime.
Your day to day Harem... read more
I wasn't expecting much from the beginning of the anime as lots of weird terms/words were used and went unexplained and wasn't delivered in a way to engage audience. It may just be me being slow but I found it really difficult to understand what is going on in the new world created by the writers or how the new world works. Characters and district names were just thrown in here and there and was messing with my head a little. This was why I rated the story slightly lower although I really love the show. Interesting plots start to develop and mysteries start to unravel more towards the end of the show. So... read more
In a yet another generic fantasy settings in yet another light-novel anime, which starts exactly in same way as those other anime series (Asterisks, Rakudai) you might watched recently, follow destiny of a tragic hero, exactly like in those other anime series you probably watched not so recently (Mahouka, ... read more
Warning: Spoiler Alert After watching Whisper of the Heart, I can safely say it is in my Top 5 favourite Studio Ghibli films ever. It's just so cute and romantic! The story follows Shizuku as she goes about her everyday life. She has a great love of books so she is always reading. After checking out books in the local library, she starts to see the same name checked the same books out before her over and over. It happens so often that she starts to wonder what this guy must be like. One day, she follows a mysterious cat which leads her on her first adventure to an old antique shop. There she meets a... read more
Warning: Spoiler Alert Noragami is set in modern day Japan and follows Yato - a minor God with piercing blue eyes as he carries out odd jobs to raise enough money to buy himself a shrine. Although Yato is a God, he's not that well known and he doesn't even have a shrine. He's also not as respected or revered as the more famous Gods are. Yet despite this, I really liked him! I found him cool, badass and hilarious! In fact, this is the first anime to make me genuinely laugh out loud in a long time and it was mainly thanks to Yato. Yato's life changes when he meets a girl called Hiyori. She's a sweet... read more
If you have a bad humour like I do you will find this anime hilarious;) Althought at some point there's too much of these funny scenes and then nothing is really serious which irritates alittle. The story has also problems cause it gets little confusing and it doesn't really move on which was dissapointing. And when it end I was like:''soooo???''.. BUT I love the main chracter Sunako whose personality is very interesting and funny. I kinda find some simlarities with her and mexD(little scary right..) But overall this anime(I think) is worth watching especially if you want some´thing... read more
Charlotte, in my opinion, is a decent anime. I've seen most of Key's other works, and I more or less liked all of them. I actually think Charlotte is better than most. It's got an interesting premise, the story is well narrated, the pacing isn't terrible, the characters are average but likeable and the ending is satisfactory. I'd definetely say its value in the entertainment sector is more than satisfactory. With the added perk, like most key shows, of being emotionally involving. Charlotte is a comet which passes the Earth every 75 tears and the dust it leaves behind causes an awakening in some... read more
Many find it strange but this is actually my favourite anime of all time. The story just sucks you in and I love the deep and ''realistic'' characters Yuu Watase makes. When the anime ended, the horrible feeling came and I just had to watch it again.
Warning: Spoiler Alert The Cat Returns is essentially a spin off of Whisper of the Heart. Yet it only features one common character - The Baron. The story follows Haru, a sweet yet disorganised and clumsy girl. After saving a car from being knocked down, she learns he is actually The Cat Prince, Lune and is then showered in gifts by his father, The Cat King. Though what the cats consider gifts aren't really Haru's cup of tea - thousands of live mice and a whole garden full of cat nip for example. And then she learns that she's been invited to The Cat Kingdom to marry Prince Lune too! As if a human... read more
This review is based on the first episode of Ajin. Ajin has a very interesting concept and had the potential to be a very good anime, however the animation style is poor, pathetic even, I am not a huge fan of computer rendered anime as i find animation to be very important in an anime. As far as the first episode has shown, the main character is very generic and shows no uniqueness [SPOILER ALERT] apart from the fact that he is an "Ajin", an immortal. Another factor that ruined the first episode for me was the absolutely terrible english translation, although this is not necessarily true... read more
Soooooo sloooooow. Story establishes goals early, provides a little bit of good action, then proceeds to tell the story at a snails pace. I swear to God I tried to give this anime a chance, but dammit it was so boring. It does look good though.
I'm not the harshest critic. But I love A-1 Pictures! From SAO, to Oreimo, to Kuroshitsuji. I can always rely on beautiful character designs from A-1 Pictures. My favorite length for anime usually falls between 12-24 episodes. So I think the pacing of this show was perfect! No too drawn out, and for an adaptation of a longer manga, and it only being the first season, it doesn't really leave too loose ends. It has the perfect combination of seriousness, comic relief, ecchi and action. Interesting characters, and some heartwarming relationships. I particularly liked the story of King and Diane and his... read more
Shingeki No Kyojin (a.k.a. Attack on Titan) The first thing people misunderstand is that Attack on Titan is a literal translation of Shingeki No Kyojin. It's not. It's Giant of the Vanguard. Anyway, this anime is really good. Why you may ask? ➳ I had taken a LONG hiatus from anime and no decent anime could make me come back. This did. It had me hooked and I binge-watched the entire thing. ➳ It is a dystopia of sorts without really being a dystopia, and I go gaga over dystopia- every single one. If you have any recommendations of dystopian... read more
It's 260 years in the future, and due to an accident with the space program that left the Earth uninhabitable, we now live on the far end of the moon. Many things have change for human kind such as our in ability to talk without looking like our mouth is filled with gum and marbles, our hands being the same size as space gloves even when the gloves are taken off, Cup of Noodles being colored better than the rest of the world and all cars sounding like the sub boss from level 3 of Streets of Rage 2, or at least thats what sticks out and somewhat ruins a pretty decent story. Story - 6/10 From episode... read more
Well i guess im too late here xD though i watched it a year ago, i am a beginner here. uhemmm.. so Seakano for me is a "great idea for a shrinking world". This anime has its own uniqueness. The way characters was defined is the best thing about it. I just like how anti-cliche this anime is ^^
When I seen this anime recommended to me, I wasn't so sure what to feel about it so I just put in in my lists to watch. I should have watched it sooner. Not only did this anime have a great story, but all the characters are different in their special ways. The protagonist is spunky and not a helpless person, like most protagonists in animes likethese are. It's a must watch for everyone.
Anime Review: Romance Dawn Story DRICO This edition to the one piece franchise is a delight to those who are fans of the series and takes us back to a simplier time before the story arcs hit full gear. Set after the events of Impel Down and before their arrival at the Sabaody Archipelago it involve Luffy getting seperated from the crew and stubbling upon a pirate crew about to attack a small village on a remote island. In true Luffy fashion he is caught up in the middle of everything and is both attack by the villagers and the pirates with only the help of his new friend Silk. It brings One... read more
Before you think "oh god, am I going to have to watch 800+ episodes to understand this movie?" Don't worry. The main plot points are explained in the first 10 minutes. So, feel free to enjoy the movie as a stand alone. Story: The plot twist reveal was visible way too early. Especially compared to some of the episodes of the TV show. However, there are smaller bits, such as placement of the explosives, that showcase the detective skills of Conan. I liked the storyline overall, just wanted a tad more mystery. Animation: The animation style definitely dates this to the late 90's. Still... read more
This is the anime that made me a otaku,i watched it 4 years ago :') man that's nostalgic.Anyways,the story is really good.Haruhi is a really good and interesting character,she's literally a God,Kyon is an ass,Tsuruya is really amusing and funny,i hate Mikuru because she's basically the fanservice of anime and Yuki is cute and awesome.She's an alien that's a kuudere that's also a genius,not to mention she is really funny.
Not much of a story or that but the animation is great and the dubbed version is well done and even though there is no real depth to the story it's good if you're looking for something funny on that side you can't help but like it
The trick to enjoy the "Specials" is to watch them in one go because they are only three minutes long and each one a continuation of the same story ("Beach Episode"). The gags do not work well if the episodes are watched in isolation. I don't understand why they couldn't just combine the 6 segments and make one single "Special". Nevertheless, its an enjoyable 18 minutes spent.
The story was predictable.
The characters weren't incredibly original.
The themes have been explored in other anime, especially recent ones.
The love triangle was forced.
The main love interest, waifu-baiting aside, seems like an arbitrary choice right up to the very end of the series.
With all this said, it didn't really matter. I don't think Your Lie in April set out to do anything new, but like Star Wars, or Harry Potter, or any of the phenomenon that deserve a place in the history of the medium they are a part of, this anime was meant to take a story we were all... read more
Everyone really needs to stop hating on this anime. Just because it's not what you expected, doesn't mean it can't be good. I honestly went into this anime thinking it was a comedy (not sure if that says more about how rubbish anime planet summaries can be or how weird I am, but there you go), so from the get go I was unsure about what to expect. The first few episodes lead you into thinking its a fantasy, action anime. However, it was much more about the mystery of finding out who the seventh brave was. This was probably the anime's main mistake. The first few episodes got rid of what should have been... read more
Story - 4/10 A short little episode that details how Takeru and Biz started working together on his racer. In the episode Takeru and Kazuma are hauling his broken down trike back to town in hopes of making it into a racer, when they go to the repair shop Biz is there coincidentally working on a race engine. The owner allows them to work on it free of charge in his shop, as long as they buy parts from him. We witness Takeru's first race, where he refuses to listen to Biz, goes full out and blows his engine in the first seconds. Finally they also show up where Takeru got his Apollo jacket, it... read more
I wanted to give the story a higher score, unfortunately I gave it the highest score I could give. The story of Kenshin is excellent and the ending part of this OVA series was exceptional and extremely emotional. However, the beginning seems to jump around excessively. I understand the point of the flashbacks is most likely to illustrate how Kaoru is thinking back about the past as she waits for Kenshin. However, if you decide to watch this OVA series you should definately have seen the anime or read up to the part with Enishi before watching this because the flashbacks would only confuse you if... read more
***THIS A SPOILER FREE REVIEW*** Before last week I had almost no knowledge of what Psycho-Pass was or entailed. It was after watching the trailer for the English dubbed version of the movie that I was informed of how good of a series (at least the first season) was so here I am about to lay it out for you. Story: 7/10 The overarching plot of the anime is quite good and takes some unforeseen twists and turns (in my opinion). It's some of the in-between stuff that prevents me from giving this category more points. There is an episode or two towards the middle of the series (after a HUGE shift... read more
if you love action comedy genres, here's one you'll love. ^_^ i'm a bit pissed that it's only 12 episodes but i guess this is what they call "short and sweet" xD it's light yet packed. child friendly and don't drink milk or coke while watching ^_~ hope this will be one of your favorites too ^_~
as the saying goes "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" ^_^ this is for everyone, i felt irritated about the flow of the episodes but when I have put two and two together, they actually balanced out. it doesn't only revolves on romance, it also highlights friendship and how far will you go for someone you really care about. the funny antics and Kansai accent are a gem. you'll be hooked, i know i was <3 ^_~
to be honest i cried in some of the scenes 'coz it has somehow touched my heart. it's a complete package an very highly recommended ^_^
Okay, I will be the first to admit that there are some pretty cheesy moments in this show. But man are they addicting to watch! This is one of the cutest animes out there at the moment (if cutesy is what you are looking for). If you are looking for some action or heavy plot, please turn away! But if you are looking for an adorable romance this show is perfect. It's romantic moments are absolutely adorable and sweet in every way possible. They make you wish you were living the character's lives. While it may not have much to the plot, it's still a show you can easily find yourself binge watching. The... read more
My youth romantic comedy is wrong as expected lives up its title.Modern Philosophical Views are presented here. If not said, then implied. The very meaning and message of this anime is so deep that even Adele can't roll in it. Im a spoiler free (I guess xD) so for those who are contemplating to watch this anime. Gambate! xD You'll have a great time for sure.
P.S this is not again a review and i know you cant call it one.
I know this is a bit late but, NVM. just take this as an impression not a review. Though hyouka is living up in its genre, it is not well defined. Well i would not call it a mystery but a meta-analysis. The same for its romance tag. But overall, this is a really great anime ^^.
For those who like school life and a touch of mystery as well as mild romance. You should never miss Hyouka.
RECOMMENDATION! .... Watch this anime ONLY until EP 11 ... DONT watch 12th !!!! its a F ......G TRAP!!!!! Well..... My first and LAst thing is ... WTF is this ENDING ?????????? . huh ?.... WHAT THE ......... OMG ......... Traveled in time? are both world destroyed now ? .... why is gekkou there too ? .... Did kurumi not die ? .... Why couldnt it end happily, normaly and why isnt Takeshi with MUI .. WTF ..... this anime has the worst ending of ALL ..... Other than This... Soundtrack was not the best.. Opening is fine but nothing else, very poor... read more
I was like "this is really great" expecting something good from this anime. Then my friend replied "what are you saying? It is just a commercial".
Frustrating and at the same time disappointing. Such a great concept for a romance, slice of life anime. "Coincidence in its finest" is the first thought that came into my mind afer watching this 2-minute short,great,amazing,well-defined COMMERCIAL T__T so sad.
i dont like to sorytell on my reviews so this one is gonna bee short. Well this review is good for those who did not watched it yet. and it is spoiler free (I guess) xD.
The plot was stagnant at the start but it gets interesting on the latter parts.... you just need patience watching this anime and broad range of understanding. Good Luck!
To be fair, I may have made a mistake in deviating from my usual genre preferences. I was trying to broaden my horizons. However there may be other viewers like me, and it may help to put this review out there. Bear in mind, I only watched a handful of episodes. I did not and could not finish the anime, though I would like to for the sake of not leaving it hanging out there forever. The anime is very, very slow, and for the length that the anime is I think that's a critical flaw. This is particularly true because much of the content in the episodes feels like padding. Sometimes it feels like the characters... read more
Well I can say that this sequel is suprisingly good. Though the storyline is somewhat...... i dont know. I cant deny the fact that the OP was well blended with the anime. It really gets me eveytime. I have no complains on other things,im just disappointed that *SPOILERS* (well i guess its too late xD) Yato did not get the first kiss. The characters were highly personified, I really like Ebisu, the way he was introduced into the story and how his character affected the plot. Others are minor details. So far..... so good.
Since this is a short anime, this will be a short review. Story: The protagonist students find out they are the lowest scoring class (by average) and to make up for it, they will need to perform well at the magic battle festival. Their preparations are interjected with random tidbits of their daily lives, like the cat-ear fad that hit the school... Animation: As seen above, the animation is fairly smooth. I wanted a bit more from it, though, condiering this was a magical school, but that's just me being nitpicky. Sound: The opening was pretty boring, but for an OVA, I was surprised there... read more
I have mixed feelings about this show. On one hand, I love it and all it's characters, but on the other hand, I can't stand it and all its repetitive story arcs and character growth backpeddling. The story arcs are so similar and repetitive, that it becomes boring and even painful to watch after about the 5th or 6th story arc if you can last that long before it becomes mundane, tedious, drivel. That would not be the worst thing in the world if all the characters did not constantly backpeddle development wise. One or more characters learn new skills, get stronger, and they get tough... read more
The title seems pretty misleading to me. It is supposed to be about Ninjas but, I really do not see any in the show. The show's star figure, Naruto, is further from being a Ninja than Jerry Lewis. According to one Ninjitsu master, it is the art of combining martial combat with tactical and strategic intellect or in other words, thinking combat. Nothing is further from Naruto than this concept. According to the Oxford Dictionary, it is the art of steath or espionage. This also is no where near what Naruto is. I have seen blaring high school bands with more stealth... read more
If you were hoping to watch some girls try and make manga, but just keep getting distracted, just keep looking. This anime is not that. Story: What story? You mean the story about 3 girls and their senpai who try to make manga in the manga club? That story? It doesn't exist. This anime is so random that I don't even think there is a story. Maybe some mini stories that don't make a whole lot of sense, but nothing linear. In fact, they throw out the manga plot point completely. It doesn't exist after episode 4. Animation: The animation is mostly chibi, with some detail thrown in at random... read more
While most reviewers will have some form of nostalgia when watching and reviewing this anime, this is actually my first time viewing it. Since I am well out of the target audience range, I might look at this anime with a more critical eye than most. Story: There are four main arcs in this anime, and each lasts anywhere from 8 to 14 episodes. The main storyline is that 7 students are caught up in a freak storm and transported to the Digital World. There, they meet their Digimon and are told they have to save the Digital World or else their world will be in trouble. Cue shounen levels of growth... read more
Essentially this is just a recap of the first season. It follows the cast of season 1 as the girls teach Leafa how to swim for an underwater quest they'll be doing later and as Kirito tells an investigator everything that happened inside SAO and Alfheim. It's fun to see the flashbacks and hear their opinion of certain scenes but you really won't miss anything if you choose not to watch this.
I was surpised of this anime, its a bit confusing at first, but if you watch it from the begining to end you will come to understand that this is a great show.
The plot is complicated but everything is explained at the end, and you will end up feeling glad you watched it tho till the end.
I surgest writing down the flags soo you have a better understanding of the show.
I have come to love all the characters they are very unique and loveable in their own way.
there isent a lot of fanservice which is good, they carry out the plot very well once you have watched the whole anime you will understand it... read more
(NO SPOILERS AND SHORT) Now LISTEN. Before you start, or maybe as you're on like episode 10 you're reading this, You might think this anime is a waste of your time and you're really not feeling it. LISTEN PLEASE LISTEN TO THE OTHER reviews It gets BETTER after the first 20 THE WHOLE Atmosphere changes, I went from "What is this I'm not going to be able to finish 203 episodes of this nonsense to it being one of my favorite anime's I've seen in my life, the story gets so deep, THE fight scenes get you SOOO HYPED! Opening and Endings are nice. I honestly got to the last 20 episodes in 2015 and Didn't... read more
