This really is a amazing anime, I just really wished they wouldnt just drop it off like that now its like if you really want to know what happens after, you have to read the manga I mean really? If your gonna create an anime based off of the manga you should atleast finish the anime and not just end it like that.

reapermatt's avatar By on Feb 3, 2016

SPOILER FREE AS POSSIBLE! My girlfriend picked this up without knowing anything about it and we loved it. I cannot say it is a groundbreaking movie, but the story alone is captivating. The characters are fairly simple, and the music is very suitable. The animation feels very much like Attack on Titan, but not as edgy. What I will say is that the antagonist definitely seemed out of place, but the ending helped make some more sense out of the character, at least to me. I never knew where the story would go, and as someone who feels like they can confidently follow the clues, this movie didn't let me have... read more

Witch Craft Works

aLime's avatar By on Feb 2, 2016

This would have been super average if not for the fact that for half of the series, the MC is more than useless, and it is atypical in that respect. For all the anime where our MC has some hidden power and uses it all the time to save his friends, Witch Craft Works does not deliver that. He really only serves to power up magical girls occasionally. Some of the characters are bland, but the quasi-lesbian mothers are always entertaining. Animation for enemies was pretty sub par, and overall, I cant quite place my finger on why I enjoyed this anime. But I did, so i'm giving it 8/10.

Everyone else pretty much covered it as far as the content of the plot being well developed. Sherlock loli is cute, and things are pretty serious sometimes. HOWEVER, the dialogue for our sort of bland MC is atrocious. All he ever says is "Victorique!!". Every. Episode. Other than that, it's well worth a watch. Be prepared for some epic Space Dandy hair as an added bonus.

Hyou-ka: You Can't Escape

Vicktus's avatar By on Feb 2, 2016

*Yawn*, well that was a mediocre showing.  Even most anime that I don’t like leave me with at least some sorts of feels at the outset.  *Pinches my arm* I’m definitely awake, and nope, this show didn’t make me feel anything.  Before I dig into categorical specifics, I should state a little bit about what brought me to this anime in the first place.  Before this anime, I watched “My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU”, and actually really liked it (surprising for me, in this sort of genre).  The first thing I do whenever I finish an anime that I actually liked... read more

Angel Beats!

AlwaysAlvin's avatar By on Feb 2, 2016

Spoilers alert 😊 After watching Angel Beats, it was very depressing. Depressing aF. But i love it. Depressing anime is the best anyway. The story was great and the plot was awesome and the charcter design too. But the animation was not very good if compared with animation nowadays. But it did a very great job for considered its relased time. The music was awesome too! Especially the song that made me cry every time i hear it, My Precious Treasure. And Hana Kanazawa cast as Angel, Tachibana Kanade is a really awesome and amazing choice! Thats all for now! 😊

The Testament of Sister New Devil

Rose573's avatar By on Feb 1, 2016

This anime has a very good story that has some fairly decent character development over time, meeting old friends, learning history as it become relevant. I appreciate that because it does not push an entire character's history and life on you and expect you to remember the relevant parts when they become relevant. While there are several scenes where nudity would be present, they censor it, but the censoring is soo obvious, between the obvious cover stickers, and the overly used light beams that at times cover half the screen. The anime in general is very sexualised, almost, but not quite, to the point... read more

Demon City Shinjuku

casandra29's avatar By on Feb 1, 2016

This movie was so horrible it was funny. Perhaps to some people that may make it worth the watch... but to me, I felt like I wasted my time. From the very outset when I heard the lame 80's theme song and saw the intro fight scene. I knew this movie was not going to be for me. However, because I had started it and it was only movie length I decided to continue watching to the end. The first thing you need to realize when you decide to watch this show is that it doesn't give out many answers or reasons for characters, events or other things happening within the show and the ones it does give out are... read more

Corpse Party: Missing Footage

WolfAngelus's avatar By on Feb 1, 2016

The only main purpose to this 11 minute episode is to show a little bit on the character relationships before the events unfolded. Other than that, there isn't much point.

One of those clips involves showing off some loli chest in an incest bath scene (not exactly odd or uncommon among family in many cultures) if you are watching the uncensored version, which is the only nudity it refers to. It makes a bit more sense to watch this before the main show I think, otherwise it feels like going backwards.

Corpse Party: Tortured Souls

WolfAngelus's avatar By on Feb 1, 2016

Treat this as a 2 hour movie split into 4 episodes. This is a must watch for horror fans. It definitely has the most disturbing and graphic events out of any horror anime and many of the horror movies out there. (**Contains some pretty graphic scenes & a fair amount of blood) The whole thing takes place in an alternate spacial world at a haunted highschool triggered by a curse triggered by performing a ritual of friendship. It runs in the form of a mystery in that who is responsible for the curse and why have to be figured out. Those who have seen many horror movies will see some classic scenes that... read more

Code:Breaker

casandra29's avatar By on Feb 1, 2016

This is a show I procrastinated on for a while. The reason being that I had already tried the manga when it first came out but ended up dropping it. I was originally a fan of the Samurai Deeper Kyo Manga and so I naturally followed the author and tried to get into her next work... even though I usually HATE school life anime/manga with a passion. In the beginning it was good enough to keep my attention and it seemed interesting however after a while it went in a direction I didn't like and I dropped it. Before I started the anime I had been worried that they may touch on some of the things that made me... read more

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

AnSophie88's avatar By on Feb 1, 2016

I loved this anime! I have to say it is my favourite romance anime by far. The story is good, as not only are they focusing on the main characters Usui and Misaki but also on the side characters as well. Each of the side characters also have their unique personalities and they have about the same amount of screen time as the two main characters. Although this anime is targeted towards a female audience, I believe that both genders would enjoy it. The focus is the same on both main characters, and it is also has a lot of funny scenes, which both genders would find entertaining. The way the story ended in... read more

Koi Kaze

delolmo's avatar By on Jan 31, 2016

I am surprised I enjoyed this anime this much considering thew insest part does not appeal to me. The story was so well done that you could not help but feel the emotions that were strongly felt by the main characters, particularly Koshiro. I very much enjoyed when he finally accepted his feelings for Nanoka and almost cried when they were considering suicide. The plot itself it's simplistic but the fact that the exploration of felings is so well done, you can't help but like it! My only complaint relates to the ending, I just did not feel satisfied with the end, perhaps if the ending was either happy (we... read more

Seirei no Moribito

Leafx42's avatar By on Jan 31, 2016

I struggled with this review because my critical observations and my personal feelings after watching this weren't lining up. Seirei no Moribito is a simple story. The plot is pretty straight forward and the ending is pretty much what you expected it to be after watching the first episode. This might seem like a slam, but it's not. The beauty of Seirei no Moribito's story is its simplicity. The story is about the relationships between the characters, not the central plot line that moves the story forward. If you don't like character driven story's then I would probably suggest trying... read more

I know this anime is largely popular due to its fanservice, and that made me really iffy about watching it, but I was hoping that there was something more to it. After six episodes, I still don't really care about the characters or what is going on. I came to this realization at the end of episode five, when I realized that I would have no trouble just closing my laptop and heading to bed, even though it had ended on a huge cliffhanger. I did watch the next episode, but that was my last attempt at seeing if the show was going to hook me. It is a very pretty show, animation-wise. The colors are bright and... read more

I will redo this review as I am watching it!   This anime just finished, and it's kinda sad to see no reviews or anything, but to be expected from a family friendly Sunday cartoon in Japan. Why am I out of all people watching and reviewing this? Why am I reviewing something I normally DON'T review? Welp. It was a choice, the summary sounded interesting, and it's something I don't have to hide out and watch, it's something I could easily watch in the living room when family is around. So why not?   So lets get this show on the road: Go! Princess PreCure... read more

I don't think that this anime was very original or that the plot itself was developed well enough to keep my interest. I made myself watch it but it did not amuse me. I think the story line is rather predictable and overdone. The main charactaer gains divine power from a God that is her friend. This is similar to Kamisama Kiss in premise but not nearly as goot as that one unfortunetly.  Also the Goddes relationship with the main character's brother did not really develop which I think culd have added some points to their plot. I enjoyed the animation as I typically see of the newer animes. The... read more

Active Raid

Mendacious's avatar By on Jan 31, 2016

This review is written after the release of episode four Active Raid on Crunchy Roll. Active Raid is a fast paced mecha comedy, set in the near future in a highly urbanized Japanese city. Which city is either not stated or I don't remember. Doesn't matter they are all the same anyway. A new international unit called Active Raid is created to tackle rising global crime. They have access to mechas called Will Wear. Though in my mind they are more like elaborate suits of armour than vehicles.       In summary they fight outlaws who use other versions of these mechs/suits to help them... read more

Also having no expereince in combat makes a lot more sense compared to others that make the MC op becasue he can use a keyboard well.

I watched these OVAS last several years ago. Rurouni Kenshin is one of my top favorite animes of all time. The OVAS covered Kenshin's past which is rather dark. We see the "old" Kenshin and his touching relationship with Tomoe. I got to say I cry everytime I watch any of the OVAS. The story alltogether is so great I could give it a higher mark if that was possible. The animation in the OVAS is a bit different than that of the anime but it's not inferior in any way.

Considering there are only 11 episodes, it is expected not to have a huge storyline but it was enjoyable to watch.

Your lie in April: It's a romance anime. I expected something along the lines of Clannad and Angels beats, both of which made me cry. The thing that good anime achieves in being able to make viewers care, be invested in the characters and the story.
However, this anime was generic. The characters weren't given much thought, the romance was presented like a pile of s*** with glitter on it. SPOILERS AHEAD! Kousei annoyed me, like Ganta from Deadman Wonderland, he was a cry baby. It didn't really... read more

Honestly, I don't understand why this is rated so low. I was in high school when it was coming out and I still enjoyed watching it. Sure, it is a child's show mostly but once all of the characters are established there is a lot more to this show than you would expect from most child's anime. There is a lot of comedy and lightheartedness to this show along with educational content. Later on in the show, though, it brings in more science fiction, the science of which made a lot of sense to me. Overall, I enjoyed watching Elementhunters. If you want something more relaxing to watch, I would highly recommend...

The Asterisk War

apoc9's avatar By on Jan 30, 2016

Gakusen toshi Asterisk came out in hand with the Rakudai Kishi no Calvary, which is slightly better show. It is yet another unimaginative light-novel adaptation about schools, magic weapons, tournament and weak protagonist who is undefeated badass. Lately this stupid gimmick is so overused. I say stupid, because what is the point of saying about a guy, who never loses a fight that he is "weak". Story itself is quite boring honestly. It is completely open ended for other season or it is the case of read the rest of the source material ending. Not only the end is poor. The very beginning and... read more

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou

This was entry #13 in the Daily Anime Marathon. Story and characters Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou can be summed up in one word: uneventful. It shows us slices of the life of Alpha, a female android who lives in the countryside and has a café. The most exciting thing she does all day is make coffee, after which she drinks it herself because there are no customers anyway... and yes, I'm serious here. The first 6 minutes of episode 1 show how Alpha gets up and makes coffee while some girl is traveling towards her. The next 4 minutes are the arrival of said girl, who then delivers a... read more

Shomin Sample

apoc9's avatar By on Jan 30, 2016

Story is the ultimate harem. A guy gets into all-girl boarding school for rich girls, who are completly clueless about the world. Just think about the posibilities. He is taken in as an live example of "commoner" (in japanese "shomin", that is where the anime derives its title from). It is excused as he is mistakenly considered to "lean that way" (in other words they think he is a gay) with particular fetish for muscular men. The comedy is simple and there is not really an overarching story except towards the end. It is mostly just various sketches and otaku refrences... read more

This anime had a potential, but what a mess it was instead. There where two points in the story, where I thought this could be good premise for a story. The first point was at the beginning. It was really good to watch an average guy with superpowers and use them solely for selfish reasons, like Yagami in the Death Note. Except Yagami had much greater ambitions than mere fame, money and women. The second point was in the very last episode. This could be really good if that part was a standalone anime. Instead the story goes for school club with superpowers. Then towards the end surprise everything is turned... read more
