MD Geist

on

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

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

The Garden of Words

on

I, for one, enjoyed Kotonoha no Niwa very much. It's a story about a young boy and an older woman. It is unique when compared to your average romantic movies.  But there was only one down point - it's only 46 minutes long. Had the movie been a bit long, we could have seen a much greater development between the main characters.  The animation, the voice acting, the character design, the scenery, are top notch! It was like watching a live action movie.  I highly recommend this movie! It's worth it!

Sailor Moon S

Right, I'm going to pull out my dart rifle and shoot the elephant in the room right away. Anyone who came here hoping for some lesbian action will most likely be disappointed, the most intimate thing Haruka and Michiru do is hold hands, indoors (fully clothed). Anyone who decided that watching this anime would somehow do something for the gay movement will also be disappointed because in one episode the other Senshi (apart from Haruka and Michiru) suspect that Jupiter is a lesbian becuase of her hero worship of Haruka with 2 or 3 saying that that would be a bad thing. At no point did any character say... See full review

The Garden of Words

I've been looking forward to Garden of Wal- I mean Words for quite some time now. By the now quite famous Makoto Shinkai and his studio CoMix Wave. I've always enjoyed the visual aspect of his films and this certainly doesn't disappoint. However it is quite lacking in other departments. Story- To sum it up shortly the story is about the relationship between a younger boy and an older women. While it is somewhat different from the average romance drama, it still has it's problems. If anything I think the story suffers most from the movies rather short run time. The film is only about 46 minutes long... See full review

Noein

on

Story: Noein's story is simple. It's about a romance that ends in tragedy. The twist comes when you add spacial dimensional time travel on top of this formula and you have people from the future wanting to change things in the past to hopfully have a better future? The story kind of gets muddled in the middle with TONS of quantum pysics jargon and theta/beta/alpha particle discussion and dimensions and overlaps and there's mentions of Shangri-La in there and you really don't have much of a clue what's going on other than all of this stuff is bad. I should also note that the plot item to stop all this is... See full review

Kaze no Stigma

on

So I had started this series on Netflix when it was first released and got board by episodes 5-7 (the Misao stoy line).  Recently I went back and watched it but skipped the second story line. So much better! Fell in love with the whole cast and loved the story lines! So for those who started this series and got bogged down by the second line (episodes 5-7) just power though the 3 episodes or skip it cause this is a beautiful story with a lot of laughs and some well placed tears!!

Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls

I do love ecchi's and harems and Samurai Girls is one of the best I have seen. Not only are the characters (except for Kanetsugu, she was incredibly annoying) all interesting and in their own way like-able but the plot took very unexpected turns and the story got quite dark, when they introduced Gisen who turned out to be a brilliant villan. The animation is also really unique and I haven't seen an animation style like this before. More in video review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LB1onliKUcI BBFC rating - 18 for strong sex...

Valkyria Chronicles

No Valkyrie can save this adaptation "Valkyria Chronicles" (Anime Review) - This review is covering the anime adaptation of the video game 'Valkyria Chronicles' and was watched in Subs.  
There are two ways to approach a suitable decision on the value of watching this anime. One is to compare it to the source material which is one of the best and most overlooked RPG's of this generation, and the other is to view it as a self-contained anime that offers no comparison to another medium. Unfortunately, in this case, both options end negatively.

Vampire Knight Guilty

Most people whom I talk to about both Vampire Knight say it's just a romance about vampires in which there are only a small group of interesting people and all the anime is, is vampires and humans talking 99% of the time, which isn't completely incorrect. Yet, this is a review on Vampire Knight Guilty; and I feel like this sequel did very well in comparison to the prequel and it deserves much praise for its execution of a well-designed plot.  This review will be spoiler free.
This anime is very dialogue-heavy, but that's just because if it hadn't been, it'd be rediculously long, and most... See full review

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (2012)

on

Long running shounen manga series’ are no strangers to anime adaptations, the vast majority of which tend to very quickly descend into a monotonous slog through countless drawn out battles which all blend into one, until they almost become parodies of each other. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure does not follow this trope, and instead goes against genre norms in order to create a show that stands out from, and towers above its peers. David Production managed to inject new life into the genre by doing away with anything that was superfluous to the story, and the action. The manga was already pretty... See full review

This anime is not boring, but I wouldn't watch it again. The anime is very slow, has a bad story, and has terrible characters >:[. Other than that, the show is pretty gory and sexual. While some animes employ filler episodes to lengthen their series, this anime goes out of the box to employ filler scenes. THAT'S RIGHT GUYS, barely anything happens in each episode, so shotgunning this anime is the only way to remain sane. It's funny because I would enjoy predicting when filler scenes occur and then get really frustrated. STORY: Storywise, the story is a disappointment. This anime can be summed... See full review

The anime adaption ofSoul Eater has been just as well-received due to its uniquely attractive style, its endearing characters, and its distinctive blending of comedy and action elements.

Story: What is a Jump Festa? I don't know and it has absolutely nothing to do with the OVA, despite it being in the title. But it surely involves plucking a random chapter that doesn't focus on Nishino (I'll say this now: I watched this shit after the series and the OVA series), slapping some animation on that ass and calling it a day. I can say that because this was pretty shitty despite having loads of innuendo, other innuendo by those in the DTAB who watched it, the sorrow few and...

The premise of the show is about a very interesting group of bounty hunters; well, being bouty hunters. The actual plot of the show does have a little substance which is definantly a plus. At the same time though, it doesn't need a complex story. It's just simply enjoyable to watch. Not to mention, the simplicity creates an... See full review

Fairy Tail

on

The story was  very good and had a lot of impact to the viewers. I would rather prefer to add more action and fight scenes when Fairy Tail continues again. The sounds were impressive and matched almost all of the scenes in Fairy Tail. I would like them to be more detailed about the characters because their animation is not as good as some of the animes I've watched. I hope you continue Fairy Tail sooner and keep up the good work.

Gokujo. Gokurakuin Joshikou Ryou Monogatari

on

=Story 5/10= Gokujo has almost no story whatsoever. If this fact is bothersome to you, then turn away now, but if you are alright with it, go watch it--it'll take less than 90 minutes--and see whether or not you liked it; it will be well worth it. I know that I personally was happy with my decision to ignore the general misgivings many citizens of the internet seem to have with this show.  What little story Gokujo contains comes in the form of the introduction of the friends of the main character, Aya, throughout the first several episodes; then, towards the end of the series, Aya experiences a...

Monster

Warning - Contains Spoilers Story:   When I first began reading reviews for this shows it was made out to sound like it was better than the second coming of Jesus Christ, but I should have known this was gonna be trouble as soon as I saw it was on the syfy channel. The plot to this series is very complicated, which is probably the most notable part of the show. It's actually very hard for me to give an honest assesment of how good the story is because it's very strong in some areas and god awful in others. The show is meant to be taken seriously, and is praised for it's realism; so i'll be... See full review

Ichigo 100%

on

Story: Let me set the tone for this review, like all other reviews of it's like. It's terrible, and I mean TERRIBLE. I suffered an existential crisis of a sort as I wasn't too sure if the manga was really good after watching this show. It was so bad that I had to think on that! A show shouldn't let you think poorly about another adaptation you have gone through and thought moderately highly of! THAT IS NOT HOW YOU CREATE ANOTHER ADAPTATION. Now that's done, lets get onto the less important parts with occasional profanity. So, story. It's your typical harem anime. Guy does something perverted to the girl... See full review

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira

on

Initially I was pretty happy to watch a sequel to the brilliant Higurashi series, but I was horribly mistaken... allow me to elaborate.... Story:  I think the only reason I give it a 1 out of 10 is because I would feel guilty giving it a worse rating. To be completly blunt, there is no story; at all. Two words can sum up this OVA; FAN SERVICE. And to be honest, normally I dont mind fan service; I prefer my woman 3D but hey, I won't complain. The problem I had with this is that all the characters are children. There what, 12? 13 if they had an early birthday? I felt dirty watching this OVA... See full review

Grave of the Fireflies

on

Warning - Contains Spoilers Story: The story to this movie was very dull, in my opinion. In a way, I can certainly feel for the characters, however at the same time it was kind of nonsense. Let me elaborate a bit, the main characters mother dies, and he decides to grieve by doing flips on the monkey bars and laugh about the situation. His father dies, and he doesn't show remorse than either. Than his little sister dies; who is clearly the only person our protagonist cares about; and he still doesn't shed a tear. Aside from that though, what made this movie exceptionally dull is that 80% of the film is... See full review

Hellsing Ultimate

on

Warning - Contains Minor Spoilers

Story:
The story of Hellsing is absolutly obsurd. That's the best way I can possibly describe it. The story starts out exceptionally strong, and if I were merly reviewing the first 3 episodes, I would be inclined to give it an 8.5 or 9 for this section. However it seems like after this point in the OVA, the authors hired a street vendor to load a gun with plotlines, shoot them about, and pick them up randomly. Eventually the main premise of the show becomes Hellsings vs. Nazi's Vs. Irish/Catholics... to make matters worse there is virtually no back... See full review
