Nekomonogatari (Black)

JAhU's avatar By on Jun 9, 2013

Oh Nekomonogatari why do you piss me off so? But let's get back to the beginning. A few years back, my friend lent me his copy of Bakemonogatari singing all kinds of praise about the series. I have to admit I was kind of curious because it was made by studio Shaft and the main character was voiced by Kamiya Hiroshi who did so well in the Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei series. I've watched the first 2 episodes and though "That was kind of cool, but pointlessly erotic.", but upon reaching the third episode I found myself bored with all the talking. After that I just skimmed through the rest of the... See full review

Pokemon Movie 15: Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice

Bestanimeserie's avatar By on Jun 9, 2013

Pokemon movie 15 was kinda "meh" personally I thought there wasn't anything good/special about it but it was quite a enjoyable movie and for those that want to spend some time watching a random movie this is great. Story - So the story this time was about "Keldeo" and personally all these movies are just used to introduce new legendary pokémon so in this movie we are getting introduced to keldeo and three other my little p-- oh sorry wrong show, jupp it's clear that they are kinda running out of ideas but the story of this movie was keldeo wants to become a sword of justice and...

So for the MMMM (Monthly Marathon Movie May) I watched this movie because I haven't seen any pokémon movie in 1 year, this move is quite good (please also note that I also added this review for the other movie since they are almost the same) Animation 8/10 - This score might be a bit high but in my opinion the animation was very good it had some fluent action scene's and there where some parts of CGI in it wich i'm not really a fan of BUT this CGI wasn't that bad and was done quite well.

100 Byou Cinema: Robo to Shoujo (Kari)

egon0044's avatar By on Jun 9, 2013

Each episode is short. I mean about 1.5 - 2 min long. They make very little sense, but they keep you coming back with their quirky characters and interesting animation. The last 4 episodes in particular are very interesting. With a total run time of about 18 min for 9 episodes, I would say just watch it. Even if you don't really like it, you can see the whole show in the time it takes you to watch a single episode of anything else.

Angel Beats!

egon0044's avatar By on Jun 9, 2013

This anime will take you on an emotional rollercoaster. Have a fear of death or feeling rather depressed, this show will only make that worse. It has it's happy endings, but you may as well break out the tissues because you'll be balling at the end of most episodes. They add in a good dose of action and comedy to keep your spirits up, but they amount to little more than destractions in the long run. Seriously recomend you watch it.

07-Ghost

egon0044's avatar By on Jun 9, 2013

The story is solid, all be it short and rather rushed near the end. The characters are good and kept me interested. I don't tend to like shows like this (kinda Shonnen -ai reverse harem like). They could have done much more with it, it ends rather abruptly. I also don't like it when anime use CG in place of drawing. Otherwise a great show.

Fairy Tail

ravenrhen's avatar By on Jun 8, 2013

This is the best anime that I've ever watched. Usually, I stay away from this type of anime because I think that they're too boyish, I even try to watch this out of boredom but as Erza come out I can't stop watching it, and as they show me how they love their guild I felt like I was a part of it too. I laugh with them, I cried with them , there were even times that I want to enter the screen just to lend them a hand. I might sound crazy that I seems to be so attatched to this, but this is what I really feel. Fairy tail is the Best!

Mirai Nikki TV

Synopsis: Mirai Nikki, based on the manga series of the same name which ran from 2006 to 2010, was one of the more popular animes of Fall 2011, and Spring 2012. The premise of this hit show is as follows: Thirteen players are chosen by Deus Ex Machina, the God of Space and Time. Each player is given a unique diary that reveals, to its user, some information relating to the future. They are then told to kill one another until either a single player remains, or until the world ends on the 90th day of the contest. The prize for this contest: becoming God.

One Piece

Komirai's avatar By on Jun 8, 2013

There are two responses I get, without fail, every time I try to get someone new to watch this show. "I don't like the art style," or "I've seen the dub - NO THANKS." I'm guilty of both of these myself. But if there's one thing I need to stress before even getting started on this review, it's that the 4Kids dub is NOT One Piece. For the love of god, PLEASE do not think it is. If you've suffered the misfortune of seeing some of the 4Kids episodes, just erase them from your mind and start fresh. They butchered it, there's really no other way to put it. They cut episodes, changed the... See full review

Mirai Nikki TV

InstantReplay's avatar By on Jun 8, 2013

Before you read what I hate to say about this show, please read what I have to say about reviews. A good review critiques the show on an objective level and determines whether a show has the characteristics that deem a show good or bad. Just because a show is "bad" or "good" doesn't mean a person is incapable of enjoying it. Please understand that if you enjoyed Mirai Nikki TV, I will not attack you in this review. Thanks for reading ^_^ Normally I don't like to write a review of an anime before seeing the whole thing, but for this show I had to make an exception. If you haven't... See full review

Flared's avatar By on Jun 8, 2013

*SOME SPOILERS POSSIBLE* Story: 6.5/10 Air’s story begins with our male lead Yukito arriving in a small, sleepy coastal town as part of his search for the legendary girl in the sky, as his mother did before him. He also seems to possess some completely unexplained and magical ability to control a little puppet plushie without strings (or any movement at all in some cases), a power which probably would have been punishable by death back in the days of witch-hunting during the 17th century. Mysterious and demonic puppetry skills aside, our protagonist soon bumps into a quirky girl called... See full review

Usually I'm not the type to watch romantic comedies, only because of how cliche most are. This anime isn't an exception. Although what most rom-coms try to do is have a unique characteristic that separates from the normal. 

Story: 6
The romantic comedies I've seen always has a typical setting for it's story. You've got your typical male somehow attracting people of the opposite sex to do your dirty work for you. Okay, that's a bit of an overstatement but you know what I mean. You have a new student who comes around and takes advantage of our main character Eita. He is entirely... See full review

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha

Komirai's avatar By on Jun 8, 2013

The problem with creating a historical anime is frequently similar to that of adapting a manga or video game: oftentimes, the author has to resort to filler or fan-service materials to clumsily meet the airing requirements for shows. However, an axiom that directors ought to familiarize themselves with is that quality is invariably better than quantity.

Thankfully, this inference only applies to certain aspects of Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, a recent adaptation of the original light novels under the same name.

Set in a time period of gruesome wars to political corruptions, Maoyuu depicts a fantasy... See full review

I really really do pick them sometimes and this one takes the biscuit, I am a great fan of moe as my friends keep reminding me. 4 The story: yes this is a bit unfair but it deserves it for toying with my heart strings, the story basically goes that Kirino a 14 to 15 year old girl that's also a model likes eroge games (Ecchi games) and her brother finds one on the floor one day and helps her with her life afterwards, the frequent changes in the story keep...

RDG: Red Data Girl

LinkSword's avatar By on Jun 8, 2013

While technically not the worst anime to come out this season by a long shot, it was easily the most boring to watch. It's extremely slow and mellow to a fault. The segments supposed to be touching scenes, decisive alliances or meaningful climaxes feel like any other average, uneventful conversation between characters in a relaxed moment of an anime arc.
Red Data Girl starts off with an interesting premise enveloped in mystery and subtle hints, and a promise at a compelling coming of age story for characters in less than ideal family situations. The problem is, it doesn't really do anything... See full review

Angel Beats!

GermanDragon's avatar By on Jun 6, 2013

Synopsis: I'd like to start by describing what type of show Angel Beats! is, what genre it falls under, and the demographic most likely to enjoy watching. Honestly though, I'm drawing a blank on how I can possibly do that. Angel Beats! is a show that fuses a ridiculous number of different genres, and somehow makes the bizarre fusion work. It's two-parts music anime, one-part action, three-parts comedy, three-parts high school anime, two parts drama... there's even an episode about baseball that embodies the sports genre. So it really wouldn't be a stretch to say that Angel Beats! has it all. And like many... See full review

Deadman Wonderland

GermanDragon's avatar By on Jun 6, 2013

Synopsis: Your humble writer was alerted to existence of Deadman Wonderland following Toonami's phoenix-like rise from the ashes. It was one of the original programs on the new lineup, and it sent viewers an immediate message: the new Toonami is going to be able to air shows that the old Toonami never could have touched. Deadman Wonderland is two-parts bloody, three-parts twisted, and five-parts... weird. It's based off of the 2007 manga series written by Jinsei Kataoka and illustrated by Kazuma Kondō.

Other than that, this wouldn't be even worth it.

Date a Live

KingArthur13th's avatar By on Jun 6, 2013

Date A Live, a series that I never really took seriously to begin with. When it comes to harem based animes, they're either suppose to be funny, serious or romantic and Date A Live was none of that. There were no jokes to laugh at, the serious moments about Kotori and Origami's past were presented horribly and the romance was as good as a third grade stage play about Romeo and Juliet. I'll be honest, the only reason I actually decided to watch this series was because of Kurumi and Yoshino who have been added to my list of Favorite Psychopaths and Favorite Kawaii Characters.

Since the show is short, I'll keep this review short. With episodes only five minutes long, you can't really fit in much plot or character development, or anything. Except fan-servce, which is the only thing this show has. If you like ecchi, and really crude humor, then you might get some laughs out of this show.

Hi there. It's been a while since I've written a review so allow me to preface this by saying I haven't been watching a lot of anime lately and don't know what's good or what's bad this season or the past three seasons for that matter. The only reason I decided to watch this was a feature in Otaku USA. And no, I do not subscribe nor ever read Otaku USA, especially considering how amazing they reviewed Blood C (one of the most god-awful pieces of rhinocerus shit on the planet). But I did read this month's feature on Psycho-Pass because they talked about it as some sort of ultra-smart anime that we rarely... See full review

After watching the 1st few episodes i wasn't sure if this anime would be interesting. Shabby Graphics, Lame Storyline, and Underdeveloped Characters were some of the issues i had. But for some reason i decided to stick with it. And it was probably due to the Story. 12 Kingdoms delivers unexpected suprices from time to time such as killing off characters, Changing character development and other plot twists. And through this wonderful story  telling it keeps you glued to the TV. If you are a fan of fantasy stories then this is the anime for you. It might have a slow start to it but slowly but surely...

Bleach Movie 2: The DiamondDust Rebellion

Komirai's avatar By on Jun 5, 2013

Bleach: The DiamondDust Rebellion takes place in the Bleach universe, as the title may suggest. It focuses mainly on 10th squad captain Hitsugaya Toshiro, so if you're a fan of him, you'll enjoy this movie, and if you're not, you might not find it interesting. If you're neither of the former, like me, you'll probably enjoy it too.

The story isn't the most original story you'll see, as it follows the theme of revenge based off of a grudge from the past. Said revenge will be executed by obliterating everything. So there's nothing special in that department. Toshiro gets involved in this act of... See full review

Bleach the Movie 4: Hell Verse

I'll admit, I had a blast watching this movie! It has a lot of cool fights and an interesting plot. The plot isn't all that unique though, that's the only part that is disappointing. If you've seen the anime Bleach, then you know how their 'arcs' go. Bleach tends to do the whole "someone gets kidnapped, Ichigo has to go fight a ton of people and then save them! The end." That's exactly what happens in this movie too.

It starts off with a somewhat of a flashback to when Ichigo fought Ulquiorra back in Hueco Mundo when he turned into a crazed hollow. That caught my attention because I... See full review

Bleach is one of the three so-called "mainstream shonen animes"; together with Naruto and One Piece these three are immensely popular, and the topic of endless comparison among their fans set out to prove that their favorite is the best out of them. They simply refuse to exit their fanboyism to view the series in an objective light, which is a shame, because they are probably missing out on great adventures, which is the case of Bleach in many ways.

It really doesn't get much better than this. Makoto Shinkai has knocked this one out of the park--every time I watch one of his movies, I wonder if his art can get any better. Hold on to your hats, because somehow, every time, he manages to produce a work of quality that completely overshadows his earlier works. And that, my friends, is no easy task. *Spoiler Alert* Story: Keeping it simple, the story is a bittersweet romantic tale of a boy who meets a stranger in the park on rainy mornings, when it is his rule to skip first period.

It is perhaps most recognized for its unique art-style. And, of course, its frequent display of topless women.

This season continues after the last one with confusion. It starts off trying to confuse the viewer with misinformation. That being said, most of this season is informative, clearing up questions from the last season. (minor spoilers) Ultimately it seems to wrap everything up yet there are more seasons after this! Characters get more two-dimensional in this season and rarely step out of their expected range. The main character is different from the first season and tries to play like it was always that way. The opening is the old one played backwards and the rest of the music is as expected. Even though... See full review

Good old fashioned story telling. Mushishi is something not everybody will like, it is slow, doesn’t have a lot of action, and no panty shots; it is different from a lot of anime out there. That being said, Mushishi spends its time in the moment, building a story, ending a story, and doing it all over again. This show can be watched out of order if necessary. Each episode is something special to be enjoyed. The characters are not the flamboyant characters you usually see in anime however; there are some really unique characters here, primarily Ginko, the stories protagonist. Our hero sticks to his...

Another fantasic anime made by Shaft, and you would think by the first thoughts, that it would just be another magical girl anime. Now, after watching it, do I relaise how wrong I was assuming that. This is probably one of the best deconstruction anime for the genre, and the entire emotional connection to the characters made it one of my favourite to watch. I won't reveal any spoilers, so don't worry when I say that this is one of those "Don't judge a book by its cover" stories.

I really loved this show! The plot seemed a bit boring when I read it, but I would never regret giving it a chance. This has to be one of my favourites, and I recommend anyone who's thinking about watching this to do so! The aspect that really hooked me was the fact that this show (at least the first two seasons) weren't in chronological order, so you got a feel for the fact that the show is not linear and that it just shows what they do every day.

Accel World

Kaijo's avatar By on Jun 2, 2013

Having watched Sword Art Online and found it fairly decent, I thought I'd check out Reki's other series... and boy was I not disappointed. In fact, I find myself liking Accel World more than Sword Art Online... even despite the fact that SAO uses Yuki Kajura's music which I immensely adore. But if you liked SAO, you'll probably like Accel World, too. How does it stack up? First, some backstory and synopsis: It is 2047, and everyone has a wearable, personal computer around their neck called a Neuro Linker (hereafter referred to as NL) It wirelessly interfaces with their brain, giving them an augmented...

MD Geist II: Death Force

Thrawn's avatar By on Jun 2, 2013

Spoilers for the first movie, not that you're watching either one for plot or any of that shit. Story: At the manly conclusion of the explosion blood fest that was MD Geist, Geist unleashed Death Force, which is a force of death. And it's metal bugs that eat the faces off people instead of face stabbing and they eat the rest of them like a bunch of douchebugs. So, Death Force. I don't know. I skipped the words again because it probably explained the first and how humanity was a bunch of dipshits who couldn't tell their mouths from their asses, fucked shit to apocalyptical standards and yadda yadda, Geist...

MD Geist

Thrawn's avatar By on Jun 1, 2013

For your benefit, MD stands for Manly Dangerous. Story: I'll be honest, I have no clue what the plot is. I skipped the intro with all the words that explained shit and skipped some of the more non-explody bits at the start that had either plot or worldbuilding. They weren't important, despite them being essential to understanding what was going on intellectually and even then probably unhelpful. If you think with your nuts and chest hair, you'll realize that it's about a guy named Geist, a member of MDS -which stands for Motherfucking Dominating Shitkicker- and he goes around killing the fuck out of...

Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate

Story/Summery: At a school that is pretty much ran by the students that attend it, a group of students that do nothing but lounge around and eat snacks have to band together to save there hang out spot by getting one of there own to become the president of the school. the events that happen after this fact come off as either normal to something out of a spy movie (the ones with a lot of backstabbing and dramatic staring). thats pretty much what this romantic comedy is using as a base. Animation: I'm watching this on my computer off a website so the actual quality of this escapes me. from what it looks... See full review

The Garden of Words

Bradalee's avatar By on Jun 1, 2013

Kotonoha no Niwa (The Garden of Words) is the latest work from highly respected director Makoto Shinkai, the man who gave us highly regarded films such as 5 Centimeters per Second and Voices of a Distant Star. Shinkai has always had an innate ability to make the ordinary beautiful in his works, something which rings especially true in this latest offering. The first thing that will stand out to any viewer will be the absolutely stunning visuals. It is visually breathtaking throughout, from the Urban Jungle of the distinctly Japanese city, to the almost magical natural world of the... See full review

Zetman

MordredMS's avatar By on Jun 1, 2013

Well, I’ll be damned if I ever expected to see a manga inspired by Western superhero comics made by Katsura Masakazu, the guy who’s best known for drawing swimsuits and panties in questionable love comedies. While on paper it may seem a good idea to bathe the superhero mythos style in Japanese shōnen storytelling, it’s an operation that combines two things that are full of overused clichés, so it needs to be done well to work. And if a very long manga is to be adapted into a very short anime series, the balance gets even more unstable.

The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya

MordredMS's avatar By on Jun 1, 2013

Note: I realise there's already far too many community reviews for this one, but I had written this overly long rant for another site, so what the hell.

When I read a review praising a certain work as “flawless”, it normally makes me raise an eyebrow, it feels more like a biased ass-licking trying to force a “perfect ten” out of something the reviewer likes than an actual critical overview. However, I realise that there are indeed times when no matter how hard you try, you just can’t manage to find any defect in what you’re dealing with; it may be because it moved... See full review

MD Geist

Bradalee's avatar By on May 31, 2013

Over on the forums we have a group of masochists (DTAB) who enjoy nothing more than watching the shittiest anime we can find, and this review is based off the most recent show we watched as a group. Or rather they watched, I missed out so had to watch it by myself. As horrifying as this particular monstrosity must have been for them watching together, I can guarantee you that it was infinitely more horrible watching it alone. Thank god Geist was so manly, I wouldn’t have gotten through it otherwise, but the testosterone kick got me through it. Anyway, feel free to drop by the "Damn, That... See full review

Fairy Tail

zetsubo666's avatar By on May 31, 2013

INTRO Ah Fairy tail the X box one of anime. Oh how you try to appeal to all and make a convulted disjointed mess of a story and come across as prententious and arrogant. Basically what Fairy tail has to offer is done better elsewhere and this is coming from someone who read a large portion of the manga and couldn't stand the series any longer despite enjoying it in the early stages. I won't tell you how its a series aimed at 12 year olds or how you cannot like the series because you know what you can like what you want but I will reccomend you to do otherwise. Also unlike other critics I don't think it is... See full review
