Corpse Party: Tortured Souls

Milved's avatar
Oct 24, 2013

This series (I will call it a series even though it is actually 4 OVA's) was really good. It was really gory and scary and mysterious, especially the 1st OVA when I had no idea what would happen. It was gripping, though I suggest not to watch it at night because you will be freaked out. I also enjoyed how it wasn't exactly a happy ending, with most people dying, but I feel that this is another plus to this series.  The only problem was that at some times I didn't understand who some of the characters were and how they were still alive and what they were doing there, but I think I will watch those...

Introduction Warning, this anime is different. It is very different. It is not for everybody. It is slow and thought out and complex. It may be a bumpy ride if you are prepared to zone out and not use your brain. This anime is best to not watch alone, talking it out can help plus this is so crazy you'll want to share the experience with a friend. That being said, The real review begins now. Animation It looks pretty good, it really does. It is terribly honest in its style and has older folks actually looking wrinkly and saggy. Sometimes the animation shows some flaws but...

Sanjougattai Transformers Go!

STORY – 1/10
Okay, I know it’s weird to do a ‘worst anime series ever’ directly after doing a ‘worst anime movie’ ever, but I need to tell you guys this BEFORE you go off and waste your life. ‘Transformers Go!’, or TG as I’m going to call this from now on, is in my opinion a horrible excuse for an anime. It shouldn’t even exist! Most of the time America takes a Japanese story and adapts it, they fail miserably. I’m not saying ‘dubbing it’; I’m saying ‘adapting it’. Well, this anime attempts to make a... See full review

Critic’s Log - Earthdate: October 23, 2013. Review #62: Vampire Hunter D Vampires are very popular in horror stories. Some stories are effective, some aren’t. Either it’s irresistable, or it’s a total shlockfest. Either way, it will drain your blood and energy and time depending on what you see. Here is Vampire Hunter D




In the year 12,090 A.D, technology and the supernatural have overtaken the world. But thanks to the overzealous ambitions of man, the world remains desolate and oppressive. What's left of... See full review

STORY – 9/10
It’s rare that I find an anime that really seems to stand out from the rest. This one’s technically a Mecha anime by class, but it doesn’t  have the same things that define the other anime. Now, having watched Gundam 00 and Code Geass I thought I’d seen the full extent of different-style Mecha Anime. I was wrong. This story is completely different. The story  follows the psychological journey of Lieutenant Ledo, and at the start of the anime you expect it to be full of action and blowing stuff up in space like your typical Gundam anime. Then, after... See full review

This is a really good anime because it has a good story line to it. I love that it has almost one main goal for the main characters throught out the anime, however sometimes I don't like that it can go off on to side storys for more then 20 episodes but some of those sides storys are good. I love the animation of the scenary in the anime it has very good details in most areas. I also think that most of the characters have really good animation to them along with good details. I love most of the music that is play during the opening and closing songs, as well as during some of the... See full review

Story relitively mediocre. Posta apocolyptic with one or two cyberpunk elements. I think my favorite character was the Guardian. The only reason I watched it untill the end was so that I could see if aliens, a secret orginization or a gov/military orginization did it on purpose or accident. I did not like how the lend left me dangling. characters enigmatic sophia who calmly accepts everything going on. How can anyone think she is not suspect. She knows to much.

This is a series of four stories taken from classical Japanese Literature. There is a commentator we see at the beginning of episode three who introduces the authors and presents the philosophical theme for each story. Story No Longer Human How does a human live? It’s a useless attempt anyway ? Why? This work represents the author and his inability to be able to ‘get along’ with people. There is a certain malaise attached to the main character who believes, for one reason or another that he is not human. The reasons behind this belief are explained, explored and looked at. The...

In a town where humans and demons co-exist, it takes more than a normal police force to maintain the peace. Enter the Hiizumi Life Counseling Office, a fantastic foursome of unique teenagers, each gifted with an amazing super power! Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta is not a continuation of 'Yozakura Quartet' but a complete new series with it's own story, the same characters are used with a few new additions. I put that bit there because there's no synopses yet and at first I thought it was a second season, hope the info is useful to some. about the show itself, I can't say much about the story yet...

Pokemon Movie 16: Genesect and the Legend Awakened

I've always had a soft spot for pokemon in my heart. The games have always been generally good, with X and Y being exceptionally better. However, when it comes to the anime, I can't think too much of it. Sure, the first season was fantastic even in the 4kids version. But, after that it keeps going and going and going and ash is still bloody 10 years old. So, I simply watch the movies and that's it. But like the series, the same thing happened to the movies. After a while, it got boring. Then came gen 4. Lucario and the mystery of mew was fantastic, and so was manaphy and the temple of the sea. Rise of... See full review

Story (Terrible)
I highly recommend NOT to watch this, seriously don't, but who I am to tell you what to do.
It could had been a pretty cool REMAKE but no matter how you see it won't be good for the next reasons:
1.- What you see in here, is fit in less than 2 hours (around 3 episodes and a half) and it was covering around 20 episodes of the original story, plus another 20 of introduction before of what we are watching in here, so it is incomplete, so characters end being forced and not fully respected about their ideals like in the show, battles feel cheap, and the story is just rushed to the...

Being afraid of other people, he doesn’t have a job either, and all he ever does is sleeping, smoking and thinking about the imaginary evil conspiracy that made his life this miserable: the NHK. Sato believes that his whole life has been set-up by this conspiracy, which leads to ridiculously funny scenes sometimes.

Story omz a GIANT FISH... and an EYE ! I'm sure they are oozing deep symbolism, reasonably sure at any rate. It starts off, just pulling you allong for the ride. As I staed for the review in the prologue, I will say again here, this was made for fans of the Manga. If you don't know anything about the manga, you should probably look it up. I started reading the manga a long time ago and never finished - I dont remember why. I was probably just really confused. In ep 4, you get a short explination as to what is going on. For the most part these 'files' are like little windows to the manga. I remember... See full review

There is a lot of space, and no one else is around.... animation a mix of 2d, 3d cgi and what not makes this a visually stunnign experiance sount: very tense - not in a bad way, it makes you edgy while you watch, which is what...

Top quality Anime! Death Note was an anime worth watching everything it had you wondering what was going to happen next at the end of every episode,  thinking about how you would deal if you had your own death note. Would you have gotten away with countless murders or would you have been caught? Would you have done it for justice or to further your own goals?  The Story of Death Note was deep enough to be good, quick enough not to get boring and easy enough to follow that you always understood what was happening. However there was one major downfall in the way that Death Note played out... See full review

The Story was very well put together with an interesting mix of comedy, action, music and drama. It did a very good job of explaining itself and what was actually happening through out the story.

That distracted me for the entire duration of the show. My other issues was that each episode a full case. The most you get is the occasional 2 ep story arc.

I just finished watching the Season 1 consisting of 14 episodes... I think this anime is a typical case of "A big bite to chew" The premise is disclosed on the first 3 episodes which is extremely big in scope and hard to follow, however, inexplicably, the remaining of the series has almost nothing to do with such interesting, yet super-complex premise and instead it revolves arount typical high-scool comedy, which in and on itself wasn't that funny, the latter part of the series inexplicably chooses to fall into shojo comedy, which is a bit dissapointing.

For 'hardcore' fans of anime, shows like this aren't something they would watch, especially if they didn't watch it around the time it came out.  It's a family friendly show, a good thing for young...

While yes the story line is good and there are many points that have you wondering whats next to me it seems pointless to build juch interesting characters and to actually flush many of them out all to go back and kill them in the next episode.

Story: If you are looking for something similar to Blood+ you will be disappointed. This anime, from what I can tell, takes place after Blood: The Last Vampire and 'reinvents' the story. If you go in to this thinking that it is going to be about Saya and her discovery of her origins and the complications it brings as she attempts to 'save humanity' and 'battle vampires' you will find this sadly lacking. I think most people did just that, especially after reading reviews and comments. This anime's premise is not about 'fighting vampires' or even 'monsters' it explores the question 'who are you' and 'what... See full review

Straight up I did enjoy watching this BUT there are a few bones I want to pick with it. First thing first the animation style is rather good and it never seemed to go wrong there was a lot of attention to detail. The reason I marked it down was the eyes there was something very off about them but beyond that I had no issues. Now the reason I marked this so low was it's storyline and characters. Character wise I did like the majority of the characters and the way they played out but Yuno and Yuki were my bad bones the amount of times they jump personalities was kind of annoying. I also believed the 9th made... See full review

Sailor Moon R Memorial

Just like the first Memorial, the Sailor Moon R Memorial is an almost hour and a half long summary of the season. It’s narrated by Usagi and Chibiusa. After the summary, there’s a brief look at some of the monsters, and following that is all of the fifteen second commercial clips for each episode. Most of what I said about the first Memorial applies here as well. There’s no new information being added here, and is just a really long summary. It’s great if you haven’t seen the season in awhile and want a refresher without watching the season all over again. Also, it does... See full review

Death Note being one of my favourite ever animes I've watched just has to be reviewed so here we go... (Summary) Light Yagami, a perfect high school student, suddenly stumbles across a mysterious notebook titled 'Death Note' (which was dropped by a Shinigami, Ryuk). Not realising the book's power, he takes it home with him. After reading the first few pages, Light finds out that the notebook he has found has a powerful ability to kill people whose names are written on the pages of the notebook. Light soon is called Kira by the society of Japan and becomes a greatly known person across the news. After many... See full review

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Critic’s Log - Earthdate: October 17, 2013. Review #60: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. In the realms of imagination. Time Travel can be quite amusing. In a fictional sense, it is a creative trope. There have been some fictional stories that use time travel pretty well and show the consequences of altering events whether it be good or bad, and Great Scott! The possibilities of time travel stories is pretty close to infinite. This movie is sort of like this. This is the tale of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.

Makoto Konno is a 17 year old high school girl and she somehow gained... See full review

Usagi Drop

At first, I was kind of skeptical about watching Usagi Drop. I read that it touched upon some mature themes and it didn't seem like an anime that I would personally enjoy. I'm glad I gave it a chance though. Only being 11 episodes long, I decided why not give it a try. I wish it was a tad longer though. THE STORY IS: Daikichi is a 30 year old bachelor who lives by himself and occupies his time by working a lot. Upon receiving a call that his grandfather had passed away, Daikichi packs and heads back to his hometown for the funeral. There, he briefly meets a girl that he, nor anyone else, have ever seen...

I know it's only new, and therefore hard to judge, but in my most humble and honest opinion, I think this show is a real winner.
While the reason for the main character to be in said fantasy land may be a little lame, it's actually a great premis to start a show with, exchanging cultures and lifestyles and knowledge through a guise of entertainment.
The animation is beautiful, the character designs are great and even the world they live in has been carefully built.
Everything feels in it's place, all the visual settings match the situation and the characters (for the most part so far) don't seem... See full review

This anime is not very good because it does not have a very good story line. The story line of the anime kind of jumps between two different wrolds and sometimes that can be confusing for some people but sometimes it has a good story line to it. The animation of the anime is kind of good. The animation of the two different worlds is good but some of the animation on the characters is not as great as I thought it should be but the animation on them is still good in someway. The songs that are in the anime are kind of wierd but there are a couple that are good. I like aobut one or two characters the most in... See full review

I really like this anime because it has a good story line to it. I like that is has a main goal that the main characters is trying to achive instead of going of onto other adeventers that have nothing to do with the characters goal. The animation of this anime is good considering the year that it was made in. Also the main characters have amazing details to them. The songs in this anime are really good, they really relate back to the anime. Some of the characters have really good voices. I love most of the characters in the anime because they are really good people. Most of the main characters want to... See full review

Attack on Titan

    Attack on Titan starts off strong with it's superb opening song, but sadly it falls off real fast the second it's over. The characters are shit, the titan desigs in the anime are shit, 3d maneuver gear is shit, that titan in the wall cliff hanger is shit. The anime is horrible and you might as well read the manga.

My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy

The Characters were animated, and initial premise is brilliant. The first episode had me hooked until the last minute. Went from a potentially hilarious slice of life to a pretty lame quest anime with a weak plot that pulls away from what I saw as a draw for the anime, a group of wierd folks getting through high school. So much potential, grossly dissapointing.

What I liked:
-The Sound tracks and the Opening were really Epic -Keeping some mystery in the story till the end -The scenes of death was severe and long which let you feel Pain for the one who dies What I Hated: -The story is non-logically acceptable as well as why they die -The characters have nothing special in Personalities except for the 3 or 4 main characters -The ones to Die were really innocent -The way of explaining what happens was complicated and hard to understand Overall: -The anime is a Good one for Horror and thriller lovers
