Chaos;Head es de esas series creadas para el olvido, decidí verla primero porque desde su emisión siempre me llamo la atención, además de que es animada por uno de mis estudios favoritos (MadHouse). Segundo, parece desarrollarse en el mismo mundo que Steins;Gate y como a mí no me gusta ver algo sin un respectivo orden (aunque estos animes sean completamente diferentes en su trama) decidí darle la oportunidad, si hubiera sabido la bosta que me encontraría nunca lo hubiera hecho. La serie en apariencia parece contar con una buena historia, bueno, inclusive... See full review

This is a fairly good anime. It has a good plot to it but sometimes I donot like that it goes off on to too many side stories and sometimes you can loose track of the main plot. But the story line is still really good. This anime has very good animation to it. The animation at the begining of the anime is a little wired but as the anime goes on the animation gets better in the details of the characters and the moves that they make during the games. I like the voices of most of the characters, if they are subbed and some of them dubbed, and some of the voices ofnthe characters leave something...

Well... huh.  Okay, then. I'm not going to go too into depth here, but I guess if you're into slapstick comedy then this might be for you.  The first seven episodes were hilarious until I realized there was no plot or character development and this series ended almost exactly as it started.  Maybe that was the intent, but it left me feelng rather unsatisfied.  Some of the jokes were really funny, but they became so redundant and repetitive that by the end I was rolling my eyes in annoyance. If you want 12 episodes of pure comedy and really like obvious and repeated humor, try this...

So I just finished watching this with the DTAB-club, atleast the rewatch since I missed to main event (due to the daylight savings time) and I decided to review this shit. Story: The story revolves around an crew on a spaceship: Moira a girl, Norman, Scott (a douchebag with fabulous bright blond hair) and the doctor guy. I had no clue where they were from or what they were doing. Somehow a shapeshifting and mindreading alien started to terrorize them. One by one they're getting killed and it's all very unclear what actually is happening, BUT AT ONE POINT THERE WAS A GIANT ALIEN DINOSAUR. The... See full review

Danganronpa: The Animation

Had a great premise, but I felt like they botched it a bit.  I think it would have been much better if they had gone darker with the characters and style.  For example, there were many ridiculous looking characters and fanfare-like music that diminished the integrity of the horrific events going on.  It ended up becoming something like a murder mystery 90s cartoon rather than a horrifying Hunger Games type massacre, which was what I thought was intended when I began and was looking forward to. Most of the episodes had the same basic format that I got bored with- find a body, look for clues... See full review

School Days

Some Spoilers Ensue: Dear lord what the hell did I just watch? I really can't quite decide if it was brilliant or terrible...it's one of the two because I don't think this one gets to revel in middle ground. Normally, I like shock cinema in general so this show with its thouroughly shocking ending was pretty awesome. I don't think people really understand this show and it's definitely mis-catigorized. True it does take place at a school with children of a young age, but this is practically showing the audience the psychological beatings some people make or let themselves endure.

Gorgeous addition to the show. It was super sad and lovely. I think I loved this episode more than the show. It was a perfect add on, a behind the scenes look into Mei's background before the terrible day her sister passed...honestly, if they would have went into some other character backgrounds on the show, or even implemented this one in as an episode during, it would have given the show much more life. I understand Mei much more now. Overall, great addition. 7/10. Watched - subbed

Mild spoilers ensue: Well, it wasn't bad...a lot of the time, I actually found it to be quite interesting. I think the plot just tried to overdo itself. Personally, I would have loved for it to have had more to do with the dolls...they were a creepy, albeit, pointless add on. For a horror show, it wasn't scary, though it did have a few cool death scenes and some gore which was helpful. The ending when chaos started to ensue was also pretty cool. I just didn't like the fact that Mikami Mei knew the whole time and just decided not to tell anyone. It's like...why? Was it just to drag the story out? Its an... See full review

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt is certainly a wild and over the top anime that knows how entertain. A superficial series that doesn't make any kind of attempt at creating some kind of profound plot and that's just one of reasons why I love this series. PASWG is an anime based off of stereotypical American Culture and animated using a style of animation similar to the average American cartoon. Imagine some of the worst personality based stereotypes of Americans and you'll get the personalities of the main duo; Panty and Stocking. These two sisters from heaven are rude and vulgar as can be.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is, at the moment, the top rated anime on this website. That leaves the question, should it be? In response to this, I say "Well, there could be worse shows at the top" The story of FMA Brotherhood is one of its better aspects. We follow Edward Elric, a child prodigy and inexplicably powerful Alchemist (because Alchemy is pretty common in this fantasy world). The reason Edward wields this almost unbelievable power (he's only 15 after all) is that he attempted to bring his dead mother back to life and unlocked some secret power after he failed.

Sadly, they weren't.  Both of the Wonderland episodes were funny and satisfying to watch, though the second episode was leaps better than the first. Grell as the Cheshire Cat was fucking brilliant so points there. I'd give the Wonderland episodes as a whole 6/10. its when you get to the other two that the real treat begins. The add-on episode about the "Spider" clan was amazing. I loved it so much. Alois... See full review

This is hands down, thee best anime, and one of the best television programs in general, that I have ever seen. It was epic. It sold me on the shounen genre. It gave me an array of emotions from anger, to sadness, to happiness and everything in between. At 64 eps, this is a beast...and there's practically NO filler. Every episode is needed to move the story forward and every episode was amazing. Going in, I almost gave up at first because the voice actor who played Al was different, and because I thought NOTHING would ever be able to trump FMA. Boy am I glad I stuck with this.

Yes, there were some filler eps in the middle that weren't really moving the story along, but the overall arc was so strong, nothing mattered but what was going to happen to Ed and Al.

This anime is an incredibly fun and enjoyable anime, and should just be laughed along with, not taken too seriously. If you don't know what the anime is about, then it's not really too much to explain, because like many comedy anime, it doesn't have much of a storyline, due to the type of comedy it utilises.  I'm no way saying that each episode has no link to the previous; just that the main point of the anime is comedy, not drama and a plot. Because of this, I gave the story 7 out of 10, due to very minor potholes and the fact there isn't much of a story to begin with, though some may concur. ... See full review

Sword of the Stranger

So based on a much larger and probably better manga version Sword of the Stranger brings us great animation with fluid battles, great coreography and nicely done backgrounds. After all the animation was done by BONES. And BONES knows it's animation. But... It's a BONES anime. This means it often relies on exterior and just that. And this is one of the best textbook examples of a shallow, empty exterior. Set in kendo era Japan it follows... A guy with a sword. I can't really say anything else about him. He is just and only a kind heart swordsman. It's not bad that he is kind hearted and all that but come on... See full review

This is sucha a good anime because of the story line of it. The story line is really good. I like that it has a set plot to it and is sticking to it as much as possible. I also like the animation of the anime because it is fairly good considering that it was made in 2009. They did a good job with the details of the characters and the scenery. The sound of the anime is really good. I like that the music doesnot drown out the voices of the characters. This anime has really good music to it along with awesome character voices. I like most of the characters in the anime becuse they are suportive and caring, but... See full review

This is a fairyly good anime. It has a good story line to it. I like that they are mostly sticking to one main goal and only go off on to little side stories. The animation of this anime is very good considering the year that is was made in. Also the characters have very good detail to it along with the scenery to it. I like some of the voices of the characters, this anime also has good music to it. I like most of the characters in this anime because they are really awesome people and also some of them are real badasses. So overall this is a really good anime.

Seirei no Moribito

Yet another in a long line of series I purchased because it was cheap, but then regretted when seeing some screenshots. But much like Get Backers and Noein, I again stubbled into a real winner. My first anime foray into subject I tend to like, feudal Japan, or rather a made up land based on such times, I was very pleased. This also was my second anime in a row (following Noein) where it was nice to see a female hero take center stage in saving the day. Story - 9/10 Moribito managed to create a serial while adding many different stories and plot lines, but without ever throwing the show off... See full review

Gatchaman Crowds

Oct 26, 2013

Hajime's voice and character made me want to kill her. a quick summary, really cool premise, really bad execution on another note Gatachaman crowds was . . . .weird to say the least.  The opening theme was spunky and cool, it really got my hopes up, but you cant judge a book by its cover.
Unlike "gargantia on the verdurous planet", Gatchaman crowds was not able to fully utilize all of the many concepts that it brought in.  I use"gargantia on the verdurous planet" because it did so extremely well.  Now apparently there was an original Gatchaman series, but I am... See full review

Love this anime! It starts off kind of slow so you need to wait until the 5th or so episode before you decide if you want to stop watching. If you do keep going you will not be disappointed. The story is rich in character development, to the point where you actually find yourself rooting for everyone at some point, even if you hate the characters actions. There is an honesty and purety in how real issues of life are dealt with which makes me truly enjoy this anime.  Now I must admit the fight scenes will leave you on the edge of your seat, yelling ...screaming, trying to help the people move out of...

I really enjoyed this anime. At times I found myself so afraid I had to turn down the volume and turn on a light in order to keep watching. It is not your typical "horror" anime, but more so one that just creeps you out and keeps you guessing at each twist and turn of the story.

Log Horizon

Notice: This review covers both seasons.

Many say that a show should be judged based only on its own merits and not how it compares with others of its kind. Nothing can be more far away from this concept that Log Horizon, which will forever be compared to Sword Art Online. And rightfully so, since it came out so close to it, just to cash in on its fame and get money out of the starving for more SAOtards who couldn’t wait for another sequel full of harem, deus ex machinas, and super perfect anti-social gamers.

At the same time, it is also considered to be the anti-SAO series, for... See full review

SoulTaker

Oct 26, 2013

SoulTaker is the story of a boring piece of cardboard in the shape of a teenage boy that gains superpowers which he uses to protect a group of plot devices and find his sister. The anime tries to sell itself as a dark hero story, but the truth is it's a shounen battle anime that uses every cliche the genre has to offer. SoulTaker tries to hide how stale its story is by using it's highly stylized art style and pointless symbolism to make itself look deeper and more interesting, but this doesn't make up for the fact that the story is full of holes or that the art style can make the anime hard to follow at...

SPOILERS! (duh)
HENNEKO when I first saw its description on Animenewsnetwork long before it came out it looked like a really promising Anime. Seemed to have really good Animation, and I kinda liked the art style. Not to mention a stoic main character (yay). So I waited till it came out and started watching it. I really really loved it the humor in the beginning was amazing and they really did a good job to make the story what it was worth. Unfortunely after episode 3 they decided that the centerpiece of the whole storyline for the Anime needed to be corrected. So they made the main character better... See full review

Today I finished Gen'ei o Kakeru Taiyou wich was a pretty enjoyable watch though the show itself wasn't that good the main problem I had was with the characters mainly because there are different episode's spend on each character but they still show not that much development or you really don't care about them. The animation was pretty good though the girls looked wayy too slim I mean look at their arms & legs it's a miracle they can stand up with those legs, the fighting scene's did look smooth and the special effects are pretty good as well. The music was in my opinion the best thing... See full review
