I came across this anime on reddit from a video posted which actually ended up being in the final episode. However, it was fascinating enough for me to look it up. I haven't really watched already completed anime in a while due to my lack of committment as I preferred to just watch shows currently in season. Story Tomoya Aki is a proud otaku of all anime, doujins, and games. On the first day of school he had a fateful encounter with a mystery girl who inspired him to create his own dating sim game. As it turns out, the girl he met is his own classmate, Megumi Katou, whose existance... See full review
Chiryokumaru is a 2016 web short by Studio 4C, and just like most of their shows it's a pretty original work that offers a little more than it first meets the eye.
STORY & CHARACTERS
The whole plot may be summarized in just two sentences: inside a museum, a young warrior fights against shadow beasts using the energy charger on his back. Soon, the energy runs out, but the warrior finds a new source of power to continue fighting. The plot is extremely short and simple, and even feels somewhat torn out of context, as we never learn why those events take place.
However, as I have already said... See full review
I love this show so much, but I do have a complaint about it's page on this site. Nishina Shima is listed as a "secondary character" and that makes absolutely no sense if you've seen all the current episodes. Honestly you should be able to figure out that she's one of the main cast just by watching the opening and ending themes. Lumping Nishina in with A-chan is completely ridiculous, considering the vast difference in screen time and involvement in the narrative. A misrepresentation of the cast is something I consider to be important to the community since the information page should be as... See full review

This review covers all three seasons. I expected to hate this anime. I wanted to hate this anime. Unfortunately for me, it made it quite difficult to find anything to hate. Harems, nakedness, devils, angels, romance, and comedy all mixed into one anime isn't something I would expect to have a decent plot or character development. I certainly don't expect anything serious from it and I expect the writing to be sub-par. I also expect a marathon of cliches. On the other hand, I needed something dubbed so I could do some other stuff while watching and I had heard good things about this anime. I swear... See full review
For a video review, check out my Youtube channel. Link on my profile page. JV's Anime Of The Season: Summer 2016 Positive *So let’s start with the romance. The romance between Naho and Kakeru is of a very mature level in Orange. Yes this comes from a romance manga but don’t expect this anime to be super moe or “we are in love and everything is perfect”. Because of Kakeru’s past and his psychology he has a very hard time to connect with people since he feels that he isn’t worth them. You can see that they love each other but they each have their own reason... See full review
Unfortunately my video review was removed due to copyright. Positive *What I liked in QC was mostly the animation in the earlier episodes. There A-1 showed how good they are at animating. But unfortunately the further the anime progressed, the more the quality of the animation began to decline. In the latter episodes it was clear that or the budget was getting low or they had to rush the production to have the episodes ready on time. Negative *And unfortunately, just like with my Taboo Tattoo review, I already have to switch to negative because QC was quite the failure. Continuing on the animation: not... See full review

Overall average anime The creator must have blended all successful element for a hit anime. This bare many similarity to recent hit series and fails to stand on it's own spotlight. but it will worth watching as entertainment common traits such as Tsundere, demons, romance, nuditity, slight fanservice all are mixed to sell but not working.

We are introduced to the universe of school for knights. The portaganist is the one who is looked down based on rank by both his family and school but his ttalent shows otherwise. The heroine is the princess but she tries to prove that she is better not because of her rank but because of her skill. The plot mostly focus on how they both try to prove themselves to the world. Critics Character: The story is about discrimination by both family and environment but portaganist is shown to be well mannered level headed gentle man which is a bit odd. In my experience those who have been discriminatede where... See full review
Yahari fans may find it a bit refreshing after a long waited OVA. Story is most similar to Volume 10.5 certain chapter and follows it's own in the later. After 15 mins we see the surprise unread element in LN. In concise we see the complete outing of characters rather than school environment Character development is most focused in this Ova, especially Iroha and Hachiman.See full review

This anime is all about the gags which is average and not that funny but if you are expecting a serious growing story plot , you may not get it. Basically in each episodes they have exams on different terrains such as in airplanes , oceans , etc. And dont expect this anime to be realistic since its not. Suddenly a... See full review
I didn't expect to like Mushishi, as it's WAY different than my normal viewing choice.. But whew, have I been glad I decided to watch it! The episodes are episodic and there is no overarching storyline, which some have been complaining about, and the animation has its derpy and blank moments, but Mushishe more than makes up for it in theme.See full review
When I first saw the first episode, I thought it would be a decent action adventure. Nothing to terribly deep, but something that could keep me entertained. Was I wrong. I watched this story to episode 5 in the hopes that something would grab me, but nothing ever did. STORY – Our story is about 4 friends that are convicted of a crime they may not of committed, transported to an area that may or may not be a post-apocalyptic future, to fight creatures. This is all happening for REASONS. Now there are some clues that point out they were transported to this... See full review
Parasyte is a pretty amazing show. The characters are one of it's strongest points which it develops quite well similar in the classical way you might see Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde or Peter Parker in Spiderman. The relationships involving their physical changes and association to extraordinary beings and powers are quite similar. The most fascinating character though may not actually be Shiniki but Ryoko who starts out as quite intelligent and studious in her quest to comprehend humanity. She may well have been the most inhuman, unfeeling, logical, and dangerous of all the alien... See full review
Full Disclosure: I backed this on Kickstarter.
... However, I'd waited so long to watch it that I no longer remember how much I gave towards the project. And I have to say, I was fairly impressed with it. While watching it, I never thought to myself "this is what I paid for." until a while after it was over.
The detailed and colorful animation was top notch. I'd give it more points for animation if I could though I view 10s as "perfect", so I guess I really couldn't.
The sound in both sound effects, music, and voice acting was just as high quality. There was one... See full review
Short, individual clips that follow a specific train of thought with a few different characters in each clip. They are a mixture of comedy (Ep 1), ecchi (Ep 2,3,6), and cute (Ep 4). Most have very little value but Ep 5 is just flat out boring. There is a mini story link going from Ep 4 to Ep 6. Watch what meets your taste (Ep 1 recommended) or else skip it. The ecchi material is pretty lackluster and the dialogue for most of these clips hold little value and entertainment.See full review
When I initially read the premise for this show, I couldn't imagine how a sentient, lifesaving penguin hat could possibly work as a coherent plot point so I watched it out of sheer curiosity. I have seen Revolutionary Girl Utena (same director) and I remebered it being pretty inexplicable and bizarre so I figured this would be along those lines. I don't know how I can adequately explain this, but by the end of this show an initially ridiculous premise had become one of the most thought-provoking and emotionally complex anime I have seen. I watch a lot of anime and a lot of shows are entertaining but... See full review
No spoilers, yea? Ok then. Full Metal Panic!... yes... The story, well, for it's time, was pretty good. In today's standards it might be a "meh", but I enjoyed it. The girl being a target, the guy protecting her, her tsundere type of attitude- it was all fun and good. It's animation wasn't necessarily that good, but it wasn't bad. The action scenes were pretty rough, but other than that, it was ok. Personally, I didn't like the OP or the ending or the rest of the soundtrack to this series. It's an opinion, but that's all I can really say for this. The characters did seem a bit bland at... See full review

Since this anime is so underrated and the only other review has rated it badly too, I figured it's my job to advertise this anime a little: it's really not as bad as it may seem at first glance. In fact, it's pretty glorious. Gakuen Handsome is a short episode comedy series based on a visual novel, which parodies common tropes found in BL manga/anime/VNs etc. Story and characters It's hard to talk about the story when it's really just a setting for jokes. In any case, a boy transferring to an all-boys school and learning about (gay) love does not sound all that spectacular. But it's a good setting... See full review
It is pretty similar to the manga but is a bit more fluid and flows better. The single episode essentially appears to cut off the very point of the anime/story so if more episodes or a season is ever forthcoming, then there needs to be something tangiable, such as maintaining communication with Rossa, for the story to be plausible for more than one episode. This episode would have to be edited to provide such a clue that it is not the end. If it is the end, though the story is a pretty decent one it is just a bit too short. Even if it were to be a full season, what happens in this... See full review
I really enjoyed this and found it hard to put down as it was a good mixture of seriousness and tragedy, combined with fun, comedy filled, and ecchi sided component. Thisisn't tagged as "Comedy" but it has a lot of funny lines and moments to where I think it makes up at a large portion of what we see. Early on it has a mystery element but this vanishes more with each episode. For those more sensitive, expect some sad yet touching moments. The strong story, engaging characters, and paired with some music that stands out from the rest are what really made this anime for me. The... See full review
Yuri!!! on Ice is focused around Yuuri Katsuki, a Japanese ice skater that had competed in the Figure Skating Grand Prix, but was ultimately defeated.

THIS WILL BE A NO SPOILER REVIEW - IT IS SAFE TO READ! Okay so a basic synopsis without revealing anything would be that there is a group of girls living in their school together with a dog trying to do more than survive. I can definitely say - it is so much better than it sounds OMG. The story line is really good; the begining is quite sow and has a slow build up but that is actually a really good thing as it builds up tension and a bond with the characters. I didn't give it a 10 as the overall idea isn't really original but it does have some originality in it with the main character having a plot... See full review
I was putting off watching this anime for a while because I knew from what snippets of it I saw online that, once I started watching it, I would be helplessly hooked. Needless to say, I eventually crumbled and watched the first episode. And it was everything I'd imagined. The animation is incredibly done so that every scene is beautiful and flows wonderfully. It is probably the best animation I've seen so far, and I've rewatched every skating routine scene at least ten times simply because each is incredibly beautiful. 10/10 here. The story line is easy to follow and makes sense. The main... See full review

These are actually decently amusing. They combine short comedy clips which are actually funny with a tiny bit of ecchi/nudity. As it becomes apparent very quick, each situation is someones dream. I would recommend watching these as they actually have entertaining content thanks to not trying to turn this into showing off as much skin as often as possible.See full review
As the name hints, this aims at showing the girls in various common fantasy outfits such as maids, nurses, etc, in pervy and suggestive situations or poses. There is some nudity but its primary focus is "sexy outfits", as well as lingerie. This was just boring though due to its basic art detail and overused too much in anime. If you want to see some girls show off sexy underwear and typical fantasy outfits, watch it. Otherwise skip as there is very little engaging dialogue.See full review
This features the close completely naked often so it may as well be pure hentai. Otherwise they will be wearing bunny or school sport outfits. There is no purpose here such as comedy and little dialogue, it's all about constantly seeing them naked. The art style is outdated so it is pretty basic detail. Since there is so little to look at, it is repetitive pretty quickly. Watch if you want to see everyone naked a lot, else skip it.See full review

Story The story is about a private investigator who is hired by a woman to find her missing husband who had dissapeared after the death of his daughter. Said missing husband is also the suspect of two murders. There are several twists and turns as well as plenty of "feels". The story is pretty well paced (especially considering that it's only 51 minutes long), and the ending is quite satisfying. Animation The animation is pretty dated. To be fair, this OVA came out in the early 90's, but those who are used to more modern animation may be... See full review
Acchi Kocchi is an adorable anime. I love it a lot. It made me feel warm and fuzzy inside the whole time I was watching it, and i love the characters and they're personalities. This is a very good anime for people new to it, and I highly reccommend it if you haven't watched it.See full review
A perfect blend of comedy and tragedy, Angel Beats will definitely have you in tears by the final episode. This anime's overused plot made enjoyable once more with a unique setting, along with a beautiful soundtrack and mesmerizing artwork makes Angel Beats a must-see. The only downside to this anime would most likely be the lack of backstory among the, in my opinion, too many characters for too short of an anime. Seriously, you'll have to watch to watch this show multiple times just to remember the more important characters' names.See full review
To be honest, I decided to watch this anime because I fell in love with the opening, but besides that, nothing in this anime really stood out to me, in fact, I found it somewhat lacking in story and character developement. However, I will admit that I've never particularly enjoyed animes based off otome games, I feel as though the protagonists never come across very well. I have heard others say that watching this anime is like watching someone else play the game, and that's no fun, right? That being said, if you did enjoy Amnesia, and maybe even if you didn't, I highly recommend purchasing the game which I... See full review
It starts with a mysterious column of light in the night sky and a power cut - and you just know that something bad has happened. This scene is repeated every couple of episodes and stays unexplained until episode 6. High school girls gossiping about missing students and spreading rumours and urban legends about a shinigami - boogiepop - said to be responsible for their disappearance. So it starts. Boogiepop phantom is a mysterious and complex anime. Initially, it seems quite random and confusing to say the least, but the storyline is actually very much elaborate with things falling quite neatly into place... See full review
<<This is a review from somebody that has never yet watched the actual NGE series, so I'm mostly writing this to warn people like me that dive into the movie thinking it's ultimately the same thing just with newer animation.>>
Avoid this movie at all costs ( and potentially the next ones if you didn't already like or get intrigued by this one). At best, just go watch the actual NGE and if you like it then only THEN come back and watch this movie. Don't under any means watch it without knowing anything of NGE.

'Prince of Stride: Alternative' was a very creative anime, and the sport, "Stride", which seemed to be a mix of sprinting, relay and parkour, is very creative and interesting to watch. However, I felt that the plot was rushed and not entirely thought-out. The producers seemed to invest too much time in making (admittedly very awesome) racing scenes, but viewers lost crucial elements of the story. Animation

A good portion of these are funny and cute with some pervy content of course. It wasn't just eye candy though and that addition of the comedy and cute and cute factors actually makes this worthwhile and fun. Watch this if you like the series as there is a good amount of value for the time spent here and it's not just hentai compared to the specials from the first season.See full review
Most of this would be the equivalent to watching hentai as might be expected based on the series. Ep 3 focused on Koneko and Ep 6 focused on Asia are somewhat cute though. Watch if you want to see the girls naked some more or in fantasy images and outfits, skip if you aren't into that as there isn't really anything else offered beyond the eye candy.See full review
Based on the show, you can guess exactly what these specials will contain. Watch them if you you want to see perverted comedy (emphasis on the pervy material) that has no shortage of nudity and common female fantasy outfits or the common fantasy situations. The comedy is heighted with our perverted main character showing up to make matters worse for the girls even though he seems to just want to help (as seen in the anime). If you aren't into perverted comedyi, then pass as that is what these clips are about.See full review
With its amazing opening song, BECK makes you want to watch the whole series.
All the characters are from different background and that makes the story all the more engaging. Ryuusuke is the main guitarist of the band. Taira, with his groovy bass, reminds you of Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers. And Chiba’s vocals makes the music all the more enjoyable. Koyuki and Sakurai join the band as guitarist and drummer.
