Oh to find a girl who loves you for who you are, who hangs on to every word you say and who actually desires to do everything possible to make you happy, well you've probably guessed it, she'd have to be a robot, and in Hideki's case it was, or a computer to be precise. Story - 7/10 Chobits is like many school and romance Animes, a young high school aged boy, who inevitably has never touched a girl, stumbles upon a relationship and now has to figure out how they work, and in Chobits the guy really has to figure out how everything works, including where the power button is. The first part... See full review
This anime is very funny but I felt that it was left unfinnished. The story line it's self was decent and the characters are well developed but none of them actually seems to grow or learn form their experiences very much and the overall problem of the story "becoming a lady" is never really solved in the anime. After watching this anime I felt like I was left in a completely ramdom place, with every problem that the characters had left unsolvedSee full review
For fans of MMORPGs, RPGs, Romance, Video Game Fantasy. No Spoilers Story We witness what seems to be just your average day for Kirito. We see news reports of some new MMO being released, with only 10,000 copies made and sold in record time. So our so far silent and depressive protagonist puts on some strange helmet, and the anime kicks off. Sword Art Online is whats called a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Gam) where players put on a typical sci-fi helmet and are transported into a virtual fantasy world. However, all is not as it seems and the thousands of players... See full review
This was an average anime, had the standard model for the love story and general story thus nothing special there but also nothing bad either just Meh. The characters I would have to say the same thing about them to, nothing about them stood out because again it just had that standard model feel to it. Now I will say this the plot is kinda weak because it revolves around the idea that the government is doing a mass censoring of books, music, film, and ect. But libraries are declared they own system/government thus can fight against this censorship, which leads to them having there own private armies... See full review
Story 6.5/10 - This show has an enjoyable story altough they didn't explain some things (won't go into detail cause that would be spoilers). It's first half is very enjoyable we have our main character Makoto Niwa who is moving to a big city, when he arrives there and enters the house the first thing he sees is Erio a girl who thinks she's an alien and spends her time wearing a futon.

Ouran Highschool Host Club is an fun comedy/romance featuring Haruhi Fujiyoka, a high school first year on scholarship at the prestigious Ouran Academy. She looks very boyish, and when she stumbles her way in to the school's host club and breaks a very expensive vase the host club forces her to work as a host to pay off her debt. The storyline is unique- though the reverse harem trope is not. I also pride this anime for presenting the story in a way where it doesn't feel like its ALL about the main character's romance. Provided you've seen the pilot episode most of these are stand-alone episodes... See full review
Story: The story revolves around an overly annoying girl named Ichigo Hoshimiya, and her friends, Aoi and Ran. The three of them enter Starlight Academy, a school for idols. They participate in Aikatsu (“Idol Activities”), and learn about the idol world. Nothing about this show’s episodes are very interesting or original. It’s very obvious from the start that the show is meant for little kids, and to sell a product. Turns out “Aikatsu Cards” are a thing in Japan, and this show is designed to promote them. Aikatsu Cards are trading cards, each with a part of an outfit on... See full review
Blood+ is considered by a lot of people I know, to look like an action anime title. This, of course being my opinion, is not the case. Although this is far from being a tragic end to it all, instead Blood+ still retains its distinction from other anime titles for being extrordinary. It is a fantastic drama that has more ups and downs than you could ever imagine. Starting out with the series, it is very hard to watch because you end each episode with 1,000 more questions than answers. The first 12 episodes seem slow and boring. This is due to the set up for the many episodes in the series and many... See full review
Worth a watch. NO SPOILERS Story Right off the bat, we are thrust into a medieval era world that is inhabited by demon creatures and this burly character wielding a sword thats twice the size of him and a crossbow for a hand, is tasked with hunting them all down. And so ends episode 1. We are then transported way back in time so see our hero's humble beginnings. The anime tells the story of Guts, a headstrong warrior with an awesomely sized greatsword and his journey through the war that has shaken the land. But all is not as it seems as a sinister and darker presence waits behind the curtains, waiting... See full review
Story: [6.5/10] Shinsekai Yori has an amazing start, the first 7 episodes are magical and intense, beautiful and stunning. While it's drop off point is earlier than others, it too suffers from a problem in anime where the story goes off quite quickly. The story takes several turns and so it's hard to give an overall synposis but since there isn't one provided by AP... Shinsekai Yori is set in a small village that practices psychic abillities called Cantus, which are taught and studied by everyone who lives there. However when students who underperform or break the rules start disappearing, Saki and her... See full review
What annoyed me about virtually all the other reviews I looked at for this anime is that they were mostly just comparisions with the first one. Today, I bring you invincibility of that issue, as I have not, and currently do not intend to watch the first version.
Moving on, I want to disclaim now that from this point forward there may include some spoilers. I think it will be hard to critique this anime without critiquing story features.
What I liked: 1. Character development - I do believe that this anime has a very solid cast of characters. What's more, is that... See full review
If you like really nice art super powerfull Espers and an intruinging plot this is for you. Dont bother careing about that it's a so call spin off cuse I hated the original just watched a few episodes of it couldnt stand it. You could say that this is a stand alone anime and not a spin off you do not have to watch the 55+ episodes of the original to understand this anime in fact dont just watch this instead. This is about a world in which people with the power of ESP are seen as monsters but are still constantly beeing used by normal ppl none ESP users are known as normals.

Story: [9/10] Tired of animes starting off well and then going to shit? Tired of fan service and horrible endings? Psycho-Pass is one of those few animes that delivers from start to finish, I feel overral it was very satisfying for me after having so many disapointments lately when it comes to expecting something really good and then having it go bad. The story takes place in a futuristic world where law enforcement has mainly been replaced by drones and a super computer named "sibyl" which governs society. Sibyl controls society by using mind-assessing technology to evaluate a human's psyche... See full review
HI, this is my first actual review of anything ever, so I will try to stay true to the site-format structure and I hope it doesn't end up being ranty. I will absolutely avoid spoilers. Story The story felt like one of those stories where you always feel like you are missing something important. By the halfway point in this show, I felt as though I must have skipped a whole episode worth of material and information. The story is very difficult to follow because new plot elements are thrown in constantly (such as the mini arc of Akiyuki and Nakiami's journey to Tessik and revelations about the Quickening...

Girls und Panzer as the name says so it's about a few girls in highschool who have an hobby called "Panzerfaren" that might be a typo but anyways the anime itself was quite good here is my review about it.

Critic's Log - Earthdate: May 3, 2013. Review #45: Black Butler II (Kuroshitsuji II) Whenever I review something, I usually don't demand anything. I just sit down and try to enjoy a show as much as I can. While I am watching an anime, I keep a handy journal in my hand and a pencil in the other hand, after I am done viewing the show. I then evaluate the show with whatever I marked down and I then count up all the scores and then I give my rating. Please keep in mind that all my reviews are solely based on opinion and not fact. I try to be as honest as possible as I can while I review an anime. Please be... See full review
Once upon a time, Sunrise executives got into a drinking contest, or a party at the strip club, or whatever it is they do when they run low on cash and have to think of a new title. They needed something good, something genre-breaking. The artist already gave them a beautiful design, so now they only had to think of a story – piece of cake, right? Well, not really. They could only come up with a list of all the overused crappy cliches: - a teenage protagonist that's a coward and want to make peace not war - a female tsundere childhood friend that is his ever-unfullfilled love interest - a bunch of...

Story Now, everyone who's seen the original OVAs would probably expect Tenchi Muyo GXP to be about Tenchi himself, as the titular character. In actuality, it's a spin-off of the series Galaxy Police Transporter begins during episode 5 of the third Tenchi OVA and progresses further outwards from there, providing something of a detailed look at the aliens and life in space aspect, as opposed to the original, which, for the most part, takes place on Earth.

First of all, I enjoyed this anime and its story. But its concepts aren't all that original. I've seen the miko (priestess) theme in a few anime before. However, the story was little crumpled altogether. The ending was puzzling, but I will not spill the details. Given it's such a short anime, I find the general details too spoilerific to share.

A little choppy when it comes to the battle scenes, but still considerably action-oriented. But I do love how much color there is throughout Kannazuki no Miko. The character designs are lovely, but at the same could have a... See full review
You thought The World God Only Knows was ridiculous? You saw nothing yet!
In a nutshell, this show is basically a parody of date sims and various other otaku culture trademarks. The very setting can best be described as a date sim version of Neon Genesis. You have the world being invaded by alien beings with angelic-themed names, a slutty imouto in the role of Gendo Ikari and the Magi computer being a galge. There are supposed to be tremendous explosions occurring all over the world, that kill millions but that is presented as dramatic as boogies hanging from your earlobe. We never see anyone...

No epic battle follows though. just unit 02 and Mari retrieving some "thing" which turns out to be unit 01. okay..... we then see Shinji coming to wondering just what the f*ck is going on (with the rest of us) he's on board the Wunder- basically a ship captained by Katsuragi along with a few other NERVE underlings- btw they all hate Shinji now,(Asuka actually...

WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW Second season doesn't deliver. At all. I was hoping for more great mindfights between Kaiji and his opponents, and only the Chinchiro part was about that, the rest was mindless fillers of Kaiji waiting, Kaiji shouting and Kaiji crying. It really should have been a 13 episode anime, because it needlessly stretches out everything. Story: The story wasn't too terrible, I enjoyed seeing how Kaiji will defeat Ohtsuki, how will he get the money for his debts and how will he work out the way to win at the Bog. However comparing this to the first season it's pretty lacking, and... See full review
This anime was a good watch I thought but only slightly above average. The reason for that is because it's story wasn't very rich thus followed the standard model, but above average a little because it did have a few moments near the end that made you think well I didn't see that coming. As for the characters they weren't bad either, the two main characters I liked because they both were capable people and opose to what often happens with them being weak cry babys that just panic. The secondary characters also weren't bad either and had their charm to. Again over all characters I felt were slightly above... See full review
Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou is a pervy anime let me get that out of the way first also for those of you that enjoy ecchi anime for it being well ecchi, take note that this one if you watch it on the web and not from the dvd (I assume) it's very censored on the nudity thou the skimpy clothing and dirtiness is still there. Anyways, the story and characters in this anime can be called average since right off the bat you can watch the first episode and guess how it will all play out and most likely your be correct. But again it's average in these areas because the story isn't bad or great nor are the... See full review
"One does not simply watch Angels Beats without crying", a fun quote from a meme thats all to true. Angels Beats an anime that will bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye, on more than one occassion. The reason for this has to be the great characters that fill this anime, because as you watch the anime you just begin to love each character as you learn about them and their story. Thus allowing the viewer to get attached to the characters and really draw you in, causing those great feel good moments that leave you with a big smile or someone trying so hard not to cry. Angel Beats also... See full review
Definitely a must watch.
The story follows the adventure of Rintarou Okabe (Hououin Kyouma), self proclaimed mad scientist and all around eccentric individual and his lab members as they journey through the intrigues of time travel. However, the deeper they dig into the rabbit hole, they witness first hand the butterfly effect as things quickly spiral out of control.
Time travel has always been a heavily scrutinised area in sci fi as many theories exist and people have their own favourites, however Steins;Gate's theory of time travel is, as far as I am aware, relatively unique. However... See full review
The story plays out very similarly to another game tie in, There isn't a lot tying each episode together. They are just monster of the week episodes. Another thing that is going against this anime is the abundabce of cheese, there is lots. Goodies and baddies being called goodies and baddies and the chief antagonist who feeds on hate may, rightly, have some people not being able to finish it. If you do you will see one of the most inexplicable second seasons I have ever seen. It is blatantly trying to squeeze more money out of the already wrung out franchise. Also the pacing is all over the... See full review
This is an early impression review, as none of us have actually seen all that Attack on Titan has to offer yet. I just want to get some early impressions out there so more people can see what they're missing out on! Story - 9/10 (so far) The story is a little vague as to why things are the way they are at the moment but these things take time. The first few episodes span a couple of years so things do jump around a little but it is easy to keep track of. There is a lot of misfortune that leaves you empathizing with the characters in the anime from the begining. You find yourself wanting the main... See full review
Wow. Let's begin with that. I'm a huge fan of the Evangelion series, both the original and the new films. After 2.22, which was phenominal in almost every aspect, I had huge expectations for 3/Q. And wow, was I ever left with a sour taste in my mouth. I would love to spend time writing a massive block about this movie, but I will keep it simple. We've skipped forward 14 years and have no idea what's happened in between. Big characters are missing, thing's are not explained, and what the heck is Shinji going to do Unfortunately, I was just really let down by this, and feel it was nowhere near... See full review

When it comes to anime people often get it right though they often get it wrong and this is one of those anime where they got it wrong. Sure, it's very formulaic and the animation is barely OK but it's educational and not boring. Every episode starts off with the male lead introducing his sister who was away from him for 10 years because of family circumstances as the camera is focused on her. She then says something odd which you would have preferrred not to hear. A few things happen followed by an Osaka Tip saying "Osaka people do/think/like this" followed by his sister saying "that's how... See full review

Story: This.... was probably one of the most emotinal anime I think I have ever seen. Around the 5th episode or so, I realized how this anime would be going out. I have seen a slightly similar anime before, yet this plot was still completely unique. I found myself weeping constantly as I came closer to the... See full review
Skip Beat! is a laugh-out-loud, riot of a romantic comedy. That's pretty much all I can say for it. The anime doesn't have very much high-quality substance to it other than comedy. Kyoko is a very loveable and quirky female lead, but I really feel that the other characters in this anime are very lacking. Others may disagree, but I watched this anime after reading the manga and was disappointed at how the anime prioritized comedy over character development. The anime is a severe disjustice to the manga. Hardly any of the plot and careful thought put into the manga survived the transition to the... See full review

I am probably giving it too much credit, but I will do a swift breakdown of the pieces, Im not spending much time on this, but that is because I thought it sucked. Story well. . . . . . the anime started off with a bunch of "filler episodes". They just did problem of the week style episodes that went on painfully until about episode 10 or 11.

This is a shoujo series from the mid-90s that was adapted from the 18-volume manga series Fushigi Yûgi by Yuu Watase, but with subtle (and some not-so-subtle) variations from the manga plot. Having read the manga first - and started watching the anime while reading vol. 15 -, my main drive for wanting to watch the anime was firstly, and mainly, because I was enjoying the manga so much that I was spurred to watch the anime version. I had a real hankering to see how the characters moved when brought to life, which is a very positive thing that indicates just how invested... See full review

My English is not the best, but I'm giving my best effort, any mistake should be fixed as soon as I notice, any help in this matter would be truly appreciated.
The Good Part The animation is amazingly dynamic and expressive, a worthy visual delight. Symbolism and surrealism are handled pretty subtle and with great quality. Not the prize for best characters but they flesh lots of characters in very creative ways so the outcome is great.
The Bad Part Even when symbolism are great, the realistic aspect appears to be lacking of details. The pacing sometimes seems to be weird... See full review
There isn't much to say about this anime it's an anime about zombies. The story line was predictable. The fanservice in this just blows your freaking mind, I'm a girl but when i see fan service I think 'huh thats great animation for a boob jiggle'. I loved the dub because it was pure mindless fun and it's just I laughed my ass off every single moment. It's a good start anime for guys and evenfor girls if you turn off your mind it's just fun.

Kimi Ni Todoke is one of the most optimistic and beautiful shows that I’ve ever seen. Watching it again only made it clearer how much other shows simply do not compare. The story’s about a teenage girl named Sawako Kuronuma who, because of her scary-looking appearance, is doomed to be an outsider. But one day she meets a boy, Shota Kazehaya. And it’s thanks to this boy, and the spark that he provides in her life, that she is able to muster up the courage to try and make changes to her life. The show is then less about the love story, and more about Sawako’s growing world, growing... See full review
Story: It's a great story but I was expecting a lot more. I loved how action packed this series was and I was never bored from watching. I liked how you get to see how a character transform but I wished it wasn't so quick to end. I just thought they would spend more time with the bigger problem of the series. I was disappointed by how fast pace the climax and ending was. It was based more on the main character's traning which is normal to most animes, but that usually bugs me.

I know she is a kid and she hasn't learn much yet and you can't expect much from an 8 year old but still I don't enjoy her character. The story truly will revolve around her so it's interesting. I will say that I love how this storyline is based on the future so you get a glimpse of how life will be. I enjoyed the future scenes in the show but wished it was as good as the first season.

Story: I think there is an exciting plotline to this series. I find the plot is a bit lacking at first because it's the same thing over and over again. With that said, it does eventually pick up and I could care less if they are repeating certain situations again. I think the repeatfullness adds to the show rather than take away. I know some people don't like to see the same situations over and over again. Animation: Honestly, I believe in comparing this anime to the time it was created. How can someone compare this animation to something made to this year? You can't compare something made in the... See full review
So I actually finished this series about two weeks ago now, but I find I need to wait to give properly objective reviews, otherwise all I'll come up with is keysmash and fangirling. So, now that I've let it sit a bit, let's get started, shall we? Story: The story itself isn't anything new, honestly, as it has bad guys who want to destroy/take over the world, and a group of people who want to stop them. In that sense, Star Driver's basic plot is actually quite predictable, good guys always win, etc. However, the way in which Star Driver handles these problems and such is somewhat unique, introducing...
