Storytelling: 7/10 –Expected so much more from story it isnt nothing special. Characters: 9/10 – All the characters, but main character woodpecker could be better. Production-Values: 9/10 – Good soundtrack, animation that’s nothing special, but does what it needs to do. Setting: 8/10 – The setting is just insane, but that’s part of this series’ charms. I recomend this anime but it dosent end and there wont be another season...See full review
Storytelling: 7/10 – Story could be better, its annoying in its first halves. Characters: 7/10 – Expected more from characters but theyre background story has it charm's. Production-Values: 10/10 – Good soundtrack, one of best animation. Setting: 10/10 – The setting is just insane, but that’s part of this series’ charms. But still one of my favourite animes and i recomend it.
Story: In the beginning it started off pretty boring, not much going on, dude having problems and school at stuff and BAM DEMONS MOTHAFUCKA. anyhow, Rin goes to excorsist academy to slay demons but BAM he's the son of Satan. Now that being all nice and stuff he has to hide it. also he slays some minor demons and BAM HUGEASS MOTHAFUCKA SHOWS UP AND HE WHOOPIN HIS ASS YO!. Ok now seriously: The anime started off quite boring as I said, the training phase was pretty nice but the thing that really doesn't make sense is Rin's flames being he most OverPowered shit ever.

Junk Boy is an old and rather obscure OVA by studio Madhouse that still gets occasional views from those following the recommendations for Golden Boy or those lured by the premise that looks almost exactly like Golden Boy's: a comedy about a guy who gets a job at a men's magazine and tries to score with the girls around. Ironically, the quality gap between these shows can be easily inferred from their respective titles:
- unlike Golden Boy that features several amusing and motivational stories (study!study!study!), Junk Boy has an utterly... See full review
Trigun was like a vacation or holiday, that you never weant to end. Trigun: Badlands Rumble is like the first day of school, when you have to go to that "ugly, old" building full of memories from summer. You have to sit down and start listening to some old fart, who pretends to speak about something interesting. But suddenly you realize that you are naked and everybody is looking at you. At that moment you wake up in cold sweat and out of breath. You look at you calendar just to find out you have still some days left. Just to be clear, and without any comparsions, Trigun movie was just awesome... See full review
BOOOOO. EDIT: let me preface this by saying check my stats to verify that I am a pretty knowledgable critic and this movie deserves everything I give it. i felt pretty emotionally attached to the girls in the beginning with the whole end of the world scenario, but i slowly came to hate Kazumi more and more as her character was developed. Literally, she should have (and tried to) kill herself well before this whole movie took place. The story is interesting and makes sense, BUT IT ALL ARISES BECAUSE KAZUMI IS A LOATHSOME CHARACTER. I suppose they kind of wrap up with an explaination at... See full review
i felt like i was in Sunday school watching a christian movie. The whole time i was expecting the "plot " to develop. The entire movie was alot of talking, more like explaining the life of buddah. Needed more action, if i want to find out about his teachings, i would have googled it. As far as the characters go i only liked the Ghosts and they didnt do much with them at all.See full review
The Story Hellsing… You will not be watching it for the plot. The story follows Alucard, a ridiculously over-powered vampire on a crusade against Nazi vampires and Catholic sociopaths. Sounds ridiculous? And it is, the story is horrible. While the first few episodes were mildly coherent and okay in terms of why Alucard goes where he goes and what he does, after episode five it rapidly goes downhill. Plot twists will be revealed without any premise or reason *cough* Walter *cough* and will serve only one reason – giving Alucard people, vampires, ghouls or Catholic soldiers that look like...

Sekirei Pure Engagement + OVA
Okay so this show is dumb, like really dumb. I don't really like harem shows very much. But for me they hold a purpose. The fact they are so mindless and dumb is why i watch them because after a show like Ga-Rei-Zero i needed dumb. I didn't like the first season of Sekirei very much. It seemed even more shallow than most Harem's but the second season was more enjoyable. If only for the fact that it contained way more Tsukiumi. Without her i'm not sure I would have...

X-men is one of my favourite comics, so I was again curious what have happened to famous brand. They started great, maybe better to say good. Pace was established and even if it wasn't action-packed it was a promise of something pretty decent. Unfortunately they couldn't fulfill it. As it started slow, it continued being slow and when we finally get some action it was just fast and shallow watch. It's a shame that with a brand like that they couldn't do more. I don't know if they think that everybody knows X-men, "let's focus more on the story, then characters", but they did not. Story of anime... See full review
I watched 10 minutes of this movie and decided it was showing more or less the same events as the TV series, and didn't feel like watching it again. I liked the TV series a lot (and I'd encourage you to check out my review of it) but suspect I would prefer the show to the movie. Either way, it's worth your time.See full review
Batman, more than a name, more than a man, it's idea itself. As I'm an average fan of Batman and I recently played Arkham City I looked forward to see what japanization of DC titles did to him. After solid one and half hour watch I must say that I'm not so happy about it. What once worked for Animatrix does not quite work here. I don't mind changes of styles, on the contrary I found Tekkon Kinkreet animation for 'Have I Got a Story for You' pretty interesting. After the first shock went off, I admit. As I was saying, if you want to do bunch of shorts that have in common just universe and theme, it is... See full review
Story: This Special episode is a continuation from the original series and is in the manga so its not separate from the series and if you are a fan of the series its a must! After finishing the original series I was distraught by them not showing anything about the Hokudo Cup. I desperately wanted to know who would be picked and if Shindou was among the three that would be chosen to represent Japan. So, of course, I immediately went to the manga, and, of course, read it to its entirety right to the very end. . . It has been... See full review

Overdrive is sport anime about young boy, who would like to impress his school love by joining her brother's cycling club. Well, at least at the beginning. After this intro to our "hero's" life, this whining, clumsy, no-good guy finds out that bicycle is something he could love and also something that can make him exceptional. I don't know, but I'm kind of fed up with main characters always whining and be no good at all, only to find out later, that they are actually something special. And Mikoto (who's name I wasn't able to remember half of the way) is really king of whingers. Kobayakawa Sena... See full review
I once tried to write a review about Spice and Wolf (S&W) but soon gave up since there was absolutely nothing to write about it. Seriously, it was just aimless slice of life with some hints of economy and trade. But now that they made Demon and Hero, (D&H) its spiritual successor, I had more than enough material to finally write my thoughts about it. So in a way consider this a double review.

Straight from my blog (with more pictures!)!!! ***This is a spoiler free review*** Have you ever started watching something with the intent for it to fail? This might sound strange but after having this show recommended to me by so many people I wanted to come here today and just rant on how horrible it was just so I could stick it in their faces and state they were wrong. Unfortunately I ended up liking Oda Nobuna no Yabou a lot more than I wanted even with its various... See full review
Just finished the first episode, and I'm not convinced that I like the animation style. It appears reminiscent of Cowboy Bebop, crossed with late 80's animation, maybe with a hint of Astroboy. The story has potential, but will have to be executed well to win me over. A solid 6 for me at this point.See full review
Story 6/10: This anime would be good if it wasn’t for the over whelming ecchi. There is so much to the point ecchi it’s just annoying and distracting. Which make it easy to overlook the story‘s good points, which is sad because this anime has a lot of good points. This anime is about 5 teenage kids fighting to survive in a zombie infested world. Sadly this story is very predictable. I expected more after all this is anime were they could do more with this genre then they could do otherwise. Despite this I admired this anime for not trying to hide what it is. Animation: 10/10 The... See full review

This animation will not even get the honor of having seperate catergories for me to digress upon its proformance.
It has zero storyline, just a bunch of pictures's drawn by a crazy guy who was also probably high, it has no flow to it, it just goes on to new things so quickly and when he couldnt think of a fill in for something, he would extend a scene (e.g when the naked girl was being twisted around the bar, in the box, i believe it was close to a minute before the box opened and about 35 seconds for it to move on to something else.), all up it was horrible.....

Story: The story was, well for me it was confusing... but somewhere around 2:35 into the video i started to understand it alittle better, the best part would have to be the ghostly obscure looking girl, with a complete black body and a crimson red outline.

Deemed to be Studio Ghibli's worst film; I went in thinking 'it's from Studio Ghibli how bad can it be?'. I don't know if I'm looking to deeply into it, but this is possibley one of the worst film I have ever seen and it all comes from the story and the character, the two biggest parts of the film and they fuck it up. In the first 5 mins Prince Arren kills his farther the King, for possibly no reason and the movie wants us to feel sorry for him. Fuck you movie, I'm not going to feelsorry for a rich Prince who for no reason killed his farther and this guy is the King, right? So how come no one in the film... See full review
Often times things with big problems begin with smaller problems, and Soul Eater is no exception. For all the problems this series has, one thing that bugged me a lot more than most of the faults was the fact that at the beginning of the show Maka and Soul are shown to be an unstoppable force, and yet not to much later they basically shout the fact that they need to improve on every level from the rooftops. I know that seems like a minor problem, but they never address the inconsistency of it. Still, even with all the faults it has, Soul Eater is genuinely enjoyable and incredibly fun.

Well, after my little personal crisis, when I stopped watching any new anime, because for some time I couldn't find anything as good and entertaining as what I already saw, I wanted to pick wisely.

Remaining text may contain some minor spoilers, so if you don't want to ruin your watch, please skip to my final review.

Hayata the Combat Butler is without a doubt quite a famous series now, with a manga of over 350 chapters and still on-going, and two anime seasons, it seems somewhat odd that a third anime season would be met with such a lukewarm response from fans. Sadly though, it isn't hard to understand why once you've watched the third season for yourself. Hayate No Gotku! Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You was pushed as a series which should have been easy for newcomers to get into easily without having to know too much about the Hayata world, somewhat helped by the fact this season of the anime was to feature a...

This show is mainly held together by the comedy for me. Its got it's cute romantic moments, and key points. But aside from the main theme being fighting, the comedy is just astounding. There are parts where you just have to laugh because some of the things said or done is just so silly. The characters are whacky, and unique, and the anime is very clever. For a harem, it really wasn't all that bad compared to others I've seen. The main love interests weren't fickle and it was clear who Ranma and Akane loved despite everyone elses' advances. This anime is a real mood lifter for those who've had a bad day.See full review

Cybersix is, to the best of my understanding, the cartoon adaptation of a Spanish comic. Featuring the heroine Cyber 6 in what can best be described as a cross of Sailor Moon and Batman, she adopts the label of 'Adrian Seidelman' by day, a simple literature teacher, while she dons an awesome leather outfit, the baddest cape there ever was, and a wicked hat by night to become the world's greatest female pugilist. With monster-of-the-week shenanigans and a steamy undertone of forbidden romance, she and superpowered-panther-sidekick Data 7 kick some serious evil hindquarters.

OLD BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
The original version of Space Battleship Yamato is legendary in Japan, not simply for being the first Japanese animated space opera, made in 1974. It is vibrating with ideals that were still very prominent at the time. Your opinion of them can greatly affect enjoyment, since most of it can be perceived as Japan trying to demonize the very fascism it was supporting in the Second World War by playing the victim card, while at the same time still presenting itself as a military power that fights for the good of humanity. Although the remake came out at a time when the war... See full review
Hellsing Ultimate is one of the top action anime ever made. It also ranks as the slowest release anime ever made, since it took 7 years just to create 10 OVAs and not because the manga story was incomplete. It was closer to making sure it would look as awesome as possible, yet even this way it has some really bad quality drops from time to time.

Story 6/10 Mitsudomoe is a slice of life anime, which translates into this: No actual plot. Each episode is divided into a number of shorter stories/gags, which may seem bad to most of you but actually it's what makes the series enjoyable and stress-free. There is a background though with a teacher, Satoshi Yabe, getting hired by Kamohashi Elementary School and being assigned to teach in the 6-3 class. He doesn't know though that in this class there are the Marui triplets, who will make his life a living hell. Each of the Marui sisters has a unique personality that is clearly shown from the very first... See full review
Overview After the critical success of Street Fighter II: The Movie, the producers from Nakamura Animation must have felt it was imperative that they make an animated feature (or it's a two-piece OVA if you go by the subs) based on yet another popular fighting game franchise and that is Tekken.

This anime oozed style and elegance. If you're looking for a visual enticing series, this is a good one. Great character design, beautiful scenes and pacing. The opening scene in the first episode hooks you right away and the music blends seemlessly with the visual atmosphere while not being distracting or overpowering. Many of the themes had that Yoko Kanno esque feel to them. Unfortunately, I wish I could continue my praise to the series but the story left you wanting.

The Story It was boring and I was scrolling through anime list and I stumbled upon Gunbuster, a quite anime made by the craziest studio of them all, Gainax so I had to pick it up. What can this be compared to and what is it like? It feels like Tengen Topa Gurren Langann (64.3% chance I spelled it wrong) thrown back into the 80s. The story is quite simple yet really epic, the protagonist is a crew member of a space ship sent deep into space to fight…. You guessed it space monsters.

Story 1/10 Normally I would be very careful so I wouldn't include any spoilers here, but then as I recall the anime that I watched a few hours ago, it lacked something very important.

From that point and on he constantly tries to make Akane like him. Well, in other circumstances, this... See full review
What better way to kick off my second “season” (if you will) of reviews than an anime I admittedly have been violently opposed to and always hated with a passion. About a year ago I sat down to watch K-On!, expecting nothing less than an entertaining anime, especially considering the hype. What I came away with was two episodes watched, the series dropped, and a total disdain for the seemingly pointless, musically deficient anime.

I'm going to make it clear that I havent finished the series and I do intend to soon. You can read anywhere online about that the show is about so I will just point out some of the issues with the anime from a fair perspective. The show has a good premise about living in a game world and if you die in it you die in real life but as you watch you will realize that this premise is of very little and eventually to no use later in the series which part of its downfall. The show intrigued me and I wanted to watch it of that vaguely used premise. The main problems with the SAO is that it has a severe... See full review
I personally found this anime to be very entertaining and interesting despite the storytelling and development issues. I really liked Ryner as a main character because of the fact that even though he seems to be a person with little surface issues, what IS shown of his past dictates otherwise.
