This anime is one of the legendary magical girl animes. It was the first one I've ever seen and the first anime I've ever watched. It's fairly old for an anime, but the quality is wonderful for the age of it. It has lovable characters, good voices/voice actors even in English, and the story was alright.See full review
Air is, to say the least, an entertaining anime. This is the first of the Key anime, which includes the likes of Kanon, Angel Beats, and Clannad. While Air is a pretty damn good anime that foretells some of the conventions of future Key series, it’s not as good as any of the newer ones. Key anime of the romance department typically involve a single guy who is forced into a situation where a bunch of girls with issues need his help. This stems from the fact that Air, Clannad, and Kanon are all based on visual novels, and visual novels have multiple girls you can get with. So the anime’s... See full review
Complex, elaborate, and legit. Baccano throws you around and around and expects you to eventually follow. Expect lots of characters and lots of time changes. The animation looks good and the english voices are just about all fantastic. The characters are always consistant and react great when put near each other. The music is a lot of fun. Just about everything about this is great. It would easily thrive in just about any form of media. 9.3/10See full review
Aaah, why did they mess this so bad? The opening song kicks ass, the story had potencial, the characters were interesting and the makers just gave up and went for retarded goofball comedy. But then again this is a J.C. Staff show, so there is no way they could do better.
STORY SECTION: 2/10 [Nice blend, bad flavor.]
The scriptwriters had no idea of what they were doing. They just threw good ideas in the pot and then realized they had no idea of how to cook them.

It is hard not to see the various Ghost in the Shell similarities; heck there is even a character named Shell! But it is also quite easy to tell how it is nowhere close as good at it; for it heads for a lot of rule of cool which tarnishes its smart aspects. Oh well, at least it looks nice.

My main problem with Clannad After Story is the first 8 episodes; those episodes really serve no purpose then to develope side characters from Clannad who don't really need developing. I just wanted to see Tomoyo and Nagsias' relationship develop - however after episode 8 this soely becomes the focus of the series - the ups and downs of there relationship and Tomoyo really develops into one animes best characters. Episodes 16-22 have some of the saddest moments I have ever seen from an anime and will test those with hearts of stone (I sobbed about 3 times during those episodes - episode 18 was the...

When I saw the first episode, i was dying to write a review on it, but I knew it wasn't fair to write a review after just watching the first episode, so I forced myself to watch the second episode.
How many times have you heard this story? Some nerd transfers into a new school, he's a loser and doesn't stand out, but somehow he gets surrounded by beautiful women who all want to have sex with him. Too many times to count. The story is overdone, and needs to stop.
If you look past the girls' overly large breasts, the art is...meh. It's your typical, neon colored... See full review
In my opinion bleach is one of THE animes, it's one of the ones that if your not watching it then you've definitely heard of it. I started watching it after a convention I went to was swamped by bleach cosplayers and definitely haven't regretted it yet. The story was average in terms of anime story lines especially at the beginning but picked up pace the further you got in to it. The action was the main thing that made this anime as addicting to watch as it was and due to the amount of time it had been airing it was strange to acknowledge that it was finished. With so many different characters... See full review
Futari Ecchi is an Adult ecchi comedy about people who really love each other. During the course of the series, they are learning to accept each other for the good and bad about themselves. Yes, there is some ecchiness in the 4 OVA's like the title suggests. However, very few animes have ever captured what it is really like to be married in the way that it has done. Off the top of my head, probably only Onegai Teacher did as good of job as Futari Ecchi in portraying the awkwardness of two people coming together in marriage for what ever reason in Anime during the last couple of years. It may not be a title... See full review

So I'm back to anime after a toku binge. My first thoughts? I am really behind. But I said whatever and decided to watch whatever I thought looked good and don't worry if I'm watching something new or old. I also decided to start writing reviews. So I sat down and asked myself which anime I should start with. I had an urge for some shoujo-ai, so I decided to rewatch this series. I promise my next reviews won't have long winded speeches of my life before them. Without further a due, Aoi Hana review.

Notice: This review covers both seasons.
Mahoromatic stands out a bit from the usual ecchi comedies out there but you need to know where to look at. First of all, the premise in the story is pretty much a troll and you should not pay too much attention to it. Supposed, aliens invaded Earth and supposed the heroine defeated them. We never hear or see of them again other than in a few minor events and that’s that. Same goes for the weird government conspiracies and the evil scientists who are after the robogirls. Forget that too, it is just there as a silly problem generator and nothing more... See full review
Story: 7.5/10 Rin Okumura, the series main protagonist, is an orphaned child alongside his brother Yukio, living under the watch of a priest, (whom I unfortunately forget the name of, its been a while). Rin has always been quite a trouble-some child, while Yukio was the seemingly perfect one aside from athletics. The duo balanced themselves out over the years, however, Yukio was seemingly favored. WARNING: SPOILERS MAY OCCUR IN THIS PARAGRAPH. SKIP IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO RISK IT. Rin, in episode two or three, finds out that he himself is the spawn of Satan, meaning that he has demon blood coursing... See full review
My name is Hayden Sorrell and I came from the year 2036.
In my time, Steins;Gate anime was already completed about 25 years ago.
I came to this site from the future to review Steins;Gate before it was completed, after I completed it.
In my time, Steins;Gate (Both anime and the VN) is still immensely popular in the entertainment business. That is because that time travel came to existence a couple of years after both the VN and anime were completed.
However, only the government is controlling it in order to maintain world peace. In my time, CERN has taken control over the... See full review
With the large amount of questionable things AKB0048 attempted, this show was inevitably doomed to fail. The large casts of characters, the doubtable synopsis, & its variety of genres clustered together just to name a few. Most ridiculous of all, the director expected AKB48 singers, a real-life, popular idol group, to successfully convert into voice actresses. Furthermore, most soundtracks in the actual anime will be inserted directly from AKB48's popular debuts, and this all just seemed too convenient to work out. Thus, I walked into AKB0048 expecting some terribly scripted dialogues, incorrect... See full review
“Um, m-marriage is where your life goes to drink.”
When I first saw this anime while browsing for brand new anime releases, this anime came into view. My first thoughts… Probably just one of those cliché anime comedy romances. Well I got the comedy romance part right, but the cliché part I couldn’t have been any more wrong. Forgive me Otaku God for calling this anime cliché *goes on hands and knees* The jokes are quite fresh and new, and the romance is so adorable your most likely going to die from potential blood loss coming out of your nose.

Another was one of those series which had me waiting eagerly for Mondays to arrive and wishing that the weekend would end sooner. For twelve weeks, it was my priority above all else to watch this amazing series, and to be honest, I'm already awaiting the release of the OVA in May. If I had to say what makes it so incredible, I would cite the short series length, the clever plot with a brilliant resolution, and outstanding animation as the main contributing factors, although the promise of blood will probably be enough for most people to decide whether this show is for them or not. Although the violence... See full review
Zero no Tsukaima F is the final season of the series and it features a young boy Saito getting abused by his master Louise. Stuff happens, Saito is extremely indecisive about his relationship with Louise, stuff gets fixed. Nothing new is really found in this season and I won't go too much into detail about the summary because hey, you should have seen the previous three seasons before you watch the 4th one, no?
So about the story.. heh. If you have seen the previous seasons, you'll have a pretty good idea what happens. Some stuff happens, maybe some random fanservice here and there, filler episodes... See full review
Zero no Tsukaima ~Princesses no Rondo~ is a romance comedy harem series and is the third animation adaptation of the Zero no Tsukaima series. Not long after the War with Albion, the runes from Saito's hand somehow vanish causing him to lose the Gandalfr power and his bound with Louise. In order to find an answer on what cause the loss of Saito's runes, they search for the Elf (Tiffania Westwood) who was responsible in saving Saito's life during his battle against Albion's forces. Eventually, Tiffania joins the group and the ~Princesses no Rondo~ series starts to head underway.

Well, I suppose it's inevitable that Futatsuki no Kishi, being a second season of Zero no Tsukaima, will be compared to the first in one way or another, especially since it's pointless to watch one without another, but I'll try to appraise its own merits as well.
First of all, as implied by the ending of the first season, FnK is a direct continuation of the story. Several new characters are introduced almost immediately, and, while I don't have anything against them, I'd like to point out that they (Agnes, particularly) take up quite an amount of screen time with their own subplots, leaving less for...

I first began watching Zero no Tsukaima with the initial intention of seeing a light-hearted comedy. Prior to watching, I had read a number of mixed reviews about this show; some praised it for its humor and strong romantic development while others seemed to indicate that it was nothing more than your typical harem/romance/comedy anime. I figured that Zero no Tsukaima (now ZnT for simplicity’s sake) would be a charming and funny show that I could watch without having to do any form of overly-complex thinking. At the same time I hoped that just because ZnT was a comedy it wouldn’t get into too... See full review
What is right and wrong? Who decides this anyway? When the time comes, will you do things based on what you think is right, or what other people say is?
When I first started watching this, it was some form of a "guilty pleasure" decision, while I thought it was going to be just another under-developed hentai (or half-hentai, as I used to call it). I was very pleasantly surprised.
Believe me, this is NOT a hentai. Yes, the main character does have sex with multiple girls over the course of the series, but these scenes have a meaning. More important thing is how they got to it, the story... See full review
Tayutama is a cute little action romance that won’t dazzle you with complicated characters and plot but still manages to be an enjoyable watch. I should say first off if you don’t like your anime with a healthy serving of moe and ultra cute artwork, then you can just stop reading now and not even bother with this series. I liken it to eating cotton candy, while it appeared filling when you stuck it in your mouth in the end it’s not very filling. But it tastes good!
The overall plot is the weakest link in Tayutama. The series starts with spirits known as Tayutai, being released... See full review
"You are not a human. You are an object."
If you were told the above, what would your reaction be? Sakai Yuji, the male protagonist of Shakugan no Shana, was thrown precisely into this chaotic situation one day while walking home from school. At the same time, viewers were introduced to the main theme of the anime. What if no one will ever remember your existence in this world. Being dead is one thing, but if everything about you will be erased from this world when you die (that includes people's memory of you), the thought alone could be terrifying to many.

Going into Toradora, I wasn’t really expecting too much from it. I thought it would be your standard school life love story we have all seen so many times before. But low and behold it came out to be surprisingly good, and has quickly become one of my favorite 2008 airing anime series.
The story revolves around Ryuuji and Tiaga, two ordinary students that end up working together in order to help one another end up with the ones they love. It stays pretty true to the "love story" formula. What makes this anime really good is the excellent pacing it takes with the... See full review

'Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai' ('The World Only God Knows') is about a self-claimed "Otoshigami (Capture God)" who can "capture" the heart of any 2D girls in dating-sim games. One day, he unknowingly signs a contract with a demon through email, and ends up in a quest to capture real-life (3D) girls in order to collect runaway souls residing within their hearts.
The first season of 'KamiNomi" involves the capture of 4 girls, with 3 filler episodes.

This anime isn't really worth watching.. It pretty boring in it own sense. The main character is unique in its own way. The only thing that may be of some interest to some viewers is probably the artwork because it is a harem and ecchi anime.
This anime doesn't have a storyline. There is no hook for you to continue watching. It just an typical anime that takes about how the male protagonist lives his daily life as a talented novel writer. Just that fact may sparkle some interest and the fact that he specializes in writing not romance, drama or action... but in porno!

I just want to start off with; I love Soul Eater. It is one of my favorite Shounen anime. Now, let the review begin. Story: 8.5/10 The story in Soul Eater, without revealing any spoilers, is that there are two partners; a weapon meister who weilds the weapon, and the weapon, who actually transforms into its weapon of choice like a scythe, knife, sword, etcetera. If the duo manage to kill 99 demon souls and one witch soul, the weapon will turn into a death scythe, the ultimate and most powerful form, and also a weapon that may be used by death when needed.

Please dont hate me, but this review is going to be my personal opinion and my personal opinion only. Sorry if I hate on one of your favorite animes or something. Story: 5/10 The second best thing in this already horrid anime. There is alot of backstory going on here, and, without spoling anything, the basic premise is that the main character, Afro Samurai, father has died and that he seeks revenge for him. It's been done before, yes, but this show seems to take it to a whole new level for ways that cannot be explained. Its one of those where you have to watch it to see it.

This is one anime I feel I could watch over and over again and never get tired of it. I love how each of the characters has their own distinct personality that would bring a dash of humor as well as drama into the whole story line. One of the main characters, Tohru Honda, has dealt with her plight in such an unusual way (nowadays, at least) that one could not help the roil of emotions that it instills within you. Also, each of the characters has their own story to tell as well, which just encourages you to dive in deeper into the story, and find out how it concludes. There are also a lot of... See full review
Story 5/10 Generic interchangable episodes that are connected by a joke at the start that continues to add on throughout the episode until a climax occurs. After a few episodes these climaxes start to become predictable. I'm a fan of ecchi to the extent of comic relief, but when the episode is nothing more but endless puns against the protaganist character usually in a peverted way in several episodes it gets annoying. I honestly think people are distracted by the jungle theme of the series to notice how generic the series is, and tend to rate the story higher than it deserves. I'd rather sit... See full review
Well, there are many things to consider in this series and I'm just doing this for fun really, but I'll try to make this as good a review as I can. With that.... The story of this anime is just magnificent. It posesses superior meanings in each of it's forms, but for that reason it makes it quite hard to understand, however, when you reach that understanding, it's just then that you begin to see the beauty under the surface. The charrecter casting is absulotely perfect, everyone has an individuality to them but even so the bonds they forge together is definetly something to look forward to... See full review

Watching the first episode of this anime, I was thouroughly confused. There's a normal-looking highschool girl that makes a new friend on the first day of school. A typical scenario. And then there is an older version of the girl and her friend, dressed in gothic lolita, built for fighting type clothes, fighting each other with huge weapons. It switches back and forth a couple times. Some dramatic things happen with the younger girls. When a new character made her appearance, the older, gothic fighter version of them would appear in the other world. I was pretty sucked into the story, even if I had no... See full review
When it was released in 2011, "Mirai Nikki" (I'm not going to bother with the "TV") became a smash-hit. Practically everyone was praising the survival-horror anime. I never got into it; I don't know why, it just never managed to catch my interest. But when an anime I was watching didn't work, I switched over to episode 1 of "Mirai Nikki." I was hooked, and before I knew it, I had seen more than a third of the series. So it really pains me to say how much it disappointed me.

Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin (Rainbow for short), as the synopsis tells us, is set in Japan a decade after WWII ended. The longer-term effects of war are apparent everywhere; from abject poverty, broken families - from both post-traumatic mental illness and death - to the desperation of many being exploited by the heartless few. We see all of this in Rainbow, it is an extremely well-rounded account of how lives can be affected by war. However, it's not all doom and gloom, and that's one of the strongest features of this series; we are also shown hope, resilience and the... See full review

First off, this is an OVA, so not much is expected from it. With that being said, it's basically a comedy rip off from Alice in Wonderland. For the most part I much enjoyed the charrecter casting and the special type of the touch of Code Geass in the play. If you like Code Geass, You'd probably enjoy it, if you haven't watched Code Geass, you won't get many of the jokes. But either way in the event that you believe this OVA not only ruined the name of Alice in Wonderland, but it also ruined Code Geass as well, than you just might be right.

This anime. Is. Amazing. I love how much it decives you. This is not a warm magical girl anime. It absolutely kills everything you expect. It does that with out being some extremely gorey, crappy parody-type thing, though. The plot is great. There are no fillers, no annoying backstory that drags on for multiple episodes, or things that happen for no reason. The whole plot is at the perfect pace and very dynamic. It twists all your expectations around and creates an addicting, twisted masterpiece. I could not stop watching this. There are no gaps whatsoever, just a seamless, awesome plot... See full review
The overall story was... okay. It had a nice, solid plot. It sort of veered off in weird ways sometimes, but it kept on track for the most part.It was a little too overused and cliche, though.

The story for Princess Tutu was simply brilliant. It takes place in a town where stories become reality and the author named Drosselmeyer is behind the story that is currently being told. He is guiding all of the characters through the story and thats what the anime is showing you. It revolves around a duck who was turned into a girl by Drosselmeyer with the purpose of being the main character of the story. Princess Tutu combines fairy tales and ballet to tell the story in this world and it is beautifully done. What I liked most about it is that this is a change from typical magical girl anime.

Story: 4/10 For the first half of the series, there really isn’t much of a story to Gokudo. Once the titular character meets Djinn, it is nearly episodic in its nature as it jumps from one ridiculous encounter to the next with very little rhyme or rhythm. This is however interrupted halfway through when the group find themselves in a truly troubling predicament (as troubling of a plot device that a comedic anime can have). This is the only point where our heroes have any form of long-term goal and the closest thing to a “proper” story that emerges from the plot, as it lasts nearly... See full review
The reasoning behind this scoring is becouse this thing doesn't officially exist. It's not an OVA, but rather a preview for what could have been. Unless your a die hard fan of Project Moon's works, I reccomend not wasting your time on this. Since it may like me, make you want to curse the makers for not going through with it. Or like some other people curse them for wrecking the story even if a bit. Either way, it's your call entirely.See full review
Story: 2/10 This was one of the worst anime i have seen in awhile. The anime started out pretty cool with a strange mock battle that made me think this anime might have had some promise. After the 1st episode was over, the whole anime went downhill. There was almost no coherent storryline and the small fragment that might have been a story was so split up, it might as well not have even happened.
