Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-

NO Spoilers! Hi, this is my first review and I thought I'd start with an easy one - (one of my favs lol ). SETTING and STORY : Without spoiling anything it's hard not to give too much away but its, I don't think original, but at least I haven't seen a premise such as this - ( I would like to add i've seen nearly 7 thousand eps of anime ) it's very engaging and enthralling. It's a fantasy world of warcraft type world, with beautiful rich settings. The story had very dark, deep, mysterious, and not to mention tense moments. It also has a lot of romantic moments, with some real heart felt moments aswell... See full review

What I Liked: The character and set designs, which are a delightfully surreal mix of Superflat motifs and nostalgic Tezuka-style curves. The muted yet colourful colour palette that lends itself to the overall unnerving tone of the world within the show. The minimalist electronic soundtrack. Episode 5's use of off-model animation to mirror the dystopian utopia setting. The wistful Opening Theme. The world-building is immaculate, and the whole memory chip technology is interesting. Even the side characters are well fleshed out. Vanilla. What I Didn't: As awesome as the soundtrack is, it does get a little... See full review

To Be Hero

Jertin2's avatar
Dec 29, 2016

The anime comes out of the gate almost as if it is aping One Punch Man, but it settles into a more sitcom style comedy about the cast clashing over Min-chan. Who wouldn't clash over the adorable Min-chan though? Re-read that crude tag for another description of the jokes that will be employed, a key feature of the main character's hero transformation is the inability to express himself without being perverted. I was more entertained by the wacky cast of aliens and references to the third wall. ("Could you say that in dialogue font instead of monologue font? I couldn't hear you!") The animation...

Now the concept of this anime was absolutely incredible. I won't go into details as spoils are a no no, but I highly recommend this to any anime loving individual! The creator does a fantastic job with creating a cause and effect story and truly grasps the effects that one's choices can have on the mind. The main character may be a little cringy at times, but it adds to his overall character and allows you to truly appreciate his good moments. Overall I give this anime my personal score of 9/10! You should absolutely give this one a shot, I'm sure you will not be disappointed!

She and Her Cat: Everything Flows

This story is simple but thats why it's so strong. You feel the pain from the girl, the cat wants to help her without words. The animation and music of "She and Her Cat" is so relax. I think this story is mysterious.

Flip Flappers

For me personally, Flip Flappers earned a couple of titles: Anime of the Season in Fall 2016, Anime of the Year 2016 and, most notably, Surprise of the Year 2016. Because I really didn't expect to enjoy this show to this extent. I mean, looking back at the fact that I almost dropped it after episode 2 still makes me shudder at the thought of missing this experience.  - I tried to keep spoilers at a minimum - Story So, what the flip is this anime about anyway? Well simply put, it's about the "normal girl" Cocona, who gets dragged to a weird alternate world called Pure... See full review

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable

Singan's avatar
Dec 29, 2016

Diamond is Unbreakable (hence DIU) is another TV series in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure franchise, adapting part 4 of the original manga. Generally speaking, it is a good fighting shounen that keeps some fundamental elements of its predeccesors and also brings many new things to the table. Before writing anything else, I would like to point out that while each part of Jojo may be viewed independently from others, it is much better to watch them in chronological order, as you may lose some important context otherwise. So, if you haven't watched anything from Jojo yet, I highly recommend to start with the... See full review

Magical Girl Raising Project

ZukaTheAstronaut's avatar
Dec 29, 2016

DISCLAIMER: POTENTIAL SPOILERS To begin, I'm obviously a Madoka fan, yes, but I paid close attention to Magical Girl Raising Project and it was probably the most "cookie-cutter-plot" Mahou Shoujo I had ever forced myself to watch. The idea of the show itself has no innovation besides the handful of characters with a prospective wholesomeness that could have driven the plot but were killed off by a bare maximum of three episodes or less. Not only did this show kill off those with strong potential—I mean strength in personality or temperament—characters that I valued, they didn't boost... See full review

Yuri!!! on Ice is a sport anime focussed on an “uncomplicated relationship” between the protagonists Katsuki Yu(u)ri - one of Japan’s top certified figure skaters - and Viktor Nikiforov who seems to turn up in Japan to be Yuri’s new coach after a video of him (Yuri) performing Viktor’s “Stay Close to ME” FS Program unintentionally goes viral. The deuteragonist who is another Yuri (remained “Yurio” among other things) Plisetsky functions as the typical “rival” character and who is the first proper challenge to appear and gets things moving...

Joker Game: Kuroneko Yoru no Bouken

Dec 28, 2016

I tend to steer clear of anime specials. Many times they are pretty stupid (For example: Attack on titan chibi ones). In this anime's case though, I decided to give it a try since I liked Joker Game a lot and because of the tone of the show, I assumed they would make it worth while and it was. I'm glad I gave it a shot. This review may not be impartial because I love cats so I was pretty much sold from the outset. Still, it plays like an extra shorter episode that is split into 2 parts and includes all the D agency guys. The story behind it was definately cute and I'd like to see... See full review

Long time, no review.  Afro Samurai is a very stylish anime. Its has strong atmosphere. Not a bad watch, but a of shortcomings cause it to fade into mediocrity.  Story: The story is pretty typical for this style of semi-satyre anime. Simple revenge story. The big problem here is that they didnt define the limits of the Universe they created. Some animes have vague deifinitions, like Naruto with computers and ninjas in the same era, but here...It goes from medieval to immortal robots in a few episodes. I know its not supposed to be smart, its supposed to be bizarre and funny, but this is too over... See full review

This show is one of my favorites out there. It is a tear jerker and is really heart warming, however there is really no mystery in the this "mystery" anime. this show shows the killer in the first episode and its obvious who it is. The opening also shows who it is for a split second and is really bad at trying to hide it. The "revivals" also didn't make sense on how it was completely random and they were never explained. The characters are some of my favorite in anime and this show made me cry and laugh. There are many plot holes, but even with these I think it did pretty well. also I... See full review

Ok, so as a BL lover, I though I should watch this one because, well, I adore BL and yaoi. I was dissapointed! Not only that I couldn't follow the story (which I didn't understand at all), but even Owari no Seraph (which is a shounen, YES, A SHOUNEN) had more BL moments than this shounen-ai anime.

Soul Contract may be the only Chinese animation that I ever watched and I was dissapointed. Why? Well, while the animation is good (not perfect, but not too bad either), the voices are kind of bad and the same goes for the lip sync between the characters and the voices, it felt like a voice over.  The other thing that I disliked was the main character who was soo annoying OMG! I understand that they wanted to put humor in it but doing this by making the main character look stupid isn't good.  Finally, I won't watch it a second time, that's for sure!

At first glance one could disregard Fune wo Amu due to how unappealing the topic of the show is, but somehow the show turns out to be quite interesting. Surprised? keep reading to know why. The show tells the story of Majime Mitsuya as he becomes a part of the team on charge of making "The Great Passage", a medium-sized dictionary. As dull as it might sound the show manages to keep the viewers interested by giving more relevance to the interactions between the characters, and it even manages to introduce a romance subplot which flows naturally without ruining the pace.

Better writers than me have raved about Fate/Zero before me, and more will do so after me. Same with worse writers. So I will be brief. Fate/Zero gives you several unique and multifaceted characters that engage the viewer's attention; it presents a concept that is familiar, but executes it with simplicity, rather than grasping at new ideas in an effort to be the most original but just becoming an unpleasant mess(i.e. Future diary/Hunger Games-type crap); it also has fantastic sound and visuals, and action that makes sense. My complaints are limited; some important characters are less interesting than... See full review

Kara no Kyoukai Movie 3: Tsuukaku Zanryuu

notoriousj0e's avatar
Dec 27, 2016

Production value: check. Pretty much a miss otherwise. I have seen half the Garden of Sinners or Kara no Kyokai saga, and this was the worst yet. All the KNK movies are a lot of mystery, symbolism, and philosophy, but that doesn't automatically make it intelligent. Tsuukaku-zanryuu, movie 3, is an example of that. It relies on mature content that appeals to your senses of pity, shock, a little bit of fear. The superpower beat down that ends this installment of KNK feels out of place, like forced fan service. Which is a shame because the mc's powers are manifested more clearly than previous movies, and put... See full review

In case you are wondering like me what this OVA is about before watching it (granted the summary provided is not descriptive at all), I have written the following information: There are 2 episodes/OVAs (not 1 as stated in this website) The first episode is about the gang winning a trip to a hot springs. They decide to go to one themed with the infamous UMA topic. No real story line, this was definitely just an extra episode/filling. The second episode is about Kobeni remembering when she was younger with her sister and her friend. By the same token, we see a short story regarding Mashiro when she was... See full review

Berserk (2016)

Digster's avatar
Dec 27, 2016

The orignial Berserk, is generally considered one of the greats as far as animes go. However, it did not earn this title because of amazing/visually stunning fights, or breath taking landscapes. In fact, imo the animation is actually subpar, even for back in the day. Many of the actions sequences happen off screen, and the ones on screen are not very fluid. So, what earned it a spot in history was its dynamic storytelling through strong-stand-alone characters that caputre your imagination and function as more than just a comic releive/support role. In contrast, not only does the new release of Berserk have... See full review

You Cannot base this movie, off of a regular anime movie or series. For only 22 minutes of content, it was mindblowing.

In the whole movie they managed to show her life, her dreams, and her commitment all in such a short amount of time, which most animes struggle to do it in 12! There was two romances that were shoved back, one with a guy who only showed up once (Brown haired guy who said he did all the training), and the one nearly bald kid. I'm really hoping for a second!

Since this doesn’t appear on the U.S. I had to search around and watch what is listed online as the prologue, which is somewhat odd as it’s not really a prologue to the season. Rather it’s a clip from mid season, occurring directly after Kei walks in on Hiro and Miyako asleep in bed together. As a prologue this doesn’t set the stage for anything and doesn’t give any backstory to the season, it’s more of a teaser trailer for people who want to watch a show about squabbling teenagers.  Story - 1/10 While even a short two or three minute clip could add to a...

Summary: (12 minute episode)
I can't say that I was extremely pleased with this one-episode and how they decided to play it all out. I suppose from a standpoint, they just wanted to get the anime overwith after 2 seasons and a bunch of OVAs. However, they missed a big opportunity to really sell the end of the manga in this episode by making it 12 minutes long. I feel that a lot of it was super rushed at the end and leaves the viewer asking so many questions that the anime lacked to answer. The shifts were rather abrupt and the bit of commical humor they threw in was awkward and seemed unfit. I would... See full review

Overall, I believe Fairy Tail is a fantastic series with interesting characters and lots of action. This being said Fairy Tail is meant for an audience who enjoy action above all else.

They win and everyone leaves happily. Simplistic yes, but its actually pretty enjoying to see the characters overcome the struggles with each arc. Nothing to complicated and easy to enjoy.

When work took me to Japan recently I had to catch this film in theaters, never mind that I can't speak Japanese and so far there are no legal translations (Tracking down the Shinjuku Picadilly theater wasn't easy either). I've read the manga so many times that subtitles or a dub were unnecessary, though I suppose such blatant fanboyism does undermine my objectivity.

Dec 26, 2016

Right, it's confession time for me. If you have been reading my reviews than you may have noticed that I tend to rip the anime a new one. There is a reason for this though and it has to do with the fact that I can't turn my brain off when watching anime. I can't ignore the stupid shown in the anime and this is a problem as most anime are very stupid indeed.

There is nothing for me to say here that I also didn't say in the review for the first season. This series basically picks up where that series left off and goes on in the same manner. If you liked the first season then you'll like this one as well

Right, it's confession time for me. If you have been reading my reviews than you may have noticed that I tend to rip the anime a new one. There is a reason for this though and it has to do with the fact that I can't turn my brain off when watching anime. I can't ignore the stupid shown in the anime and this is a problem as most anime are very stupid indeed.

Generally I’ve been lucky when it comes to series I’ve previously watched, but never got around to reviewing. Trigun, X and FLCL are just a few and they’re all worth the time to rewatch a second, third or fourth time (I’ve actually viewed FLCL about fifty times through) This time things aren’t so bright, as 10 hours of Noir is nothing to look forward to. Story 5/10 Just from previous films and TV shows before it, you would think Assassin based series would be interesting. No nonsense guns for hire, taking out evil doers and spending they free time living the lavish... See full review

Story This is an anime about people making anime.  Watching what the charcters go through to create their series, edit it, and do what it takes to make sure it goes on air makes me appreciate real life anime creators alot more.  Seeing the process of creating an anime is also very interesting.  This series also has a good balace of comedy and drama.  I also felt the ending was very satisfying. Animation Other than a few still frames here and there, the animation is quite good. Sound The opening and ending are all very good.  The... See full review

Completely and utterly ridiculous. However, the whole thing is done so well, and with such engaging characters, that I found myself throughly enjoying it despite the complete absurdity.

Mirai Nikki Redial

Based off memory. Also, spoilers. (Mature language) Mirai Nikki Redial is more like an ending to the Mirai Nikki show, rather than an OVA. (Seriously, who's idea was it to call this a fucking OVA?). Redial was... for the most part, good. It showed Yuuki's life after the game of determining who'd be the next god of the dimension. He spent 10,000 years looking through his phone texts... I mean, that's either sever depression or a large dedication. Probably the first one, but who knows :P. We get a look into what a normal, cute Yuno would look like had her life not been interfered by 1st Dimension's Yuno... See full review

This review will be very short. Anime was so good that it made me cry. I cried for the fifth time  because of the anime after Death Note, Naruto, Code Geass(all hail lelouch) and Parasyte -the maxim-. Beautiful story, i wish for continue of the anime.

My all time favourite anime! The story about an average high school boy... Oh wait, not so true. Yusuke Uremeshi is actually a total jerk (well at first someone would think). Even the spirit world is surprised, that he literally saved the life of a little boy, who was nearly hit by a car. But in process, he died, and now he thinks its better this way, and has no though of wanting to live again. Or so he didn't.  Because of his childhood friend, Keiko, his own mother, and his rival, Kuwabara,  he decided to try to get back to life. But its cost to be a spirit detective, who has to fight the... See full review

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai

Higurashi no naku koro ni kai Well, actually it's one of my favorites. Animation is its weak point, but the genius story balaced it quite well. The first season made no sense at all, but that's why I became very very interested, what does it wants to show me. It's full of twists, sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's terribly horroristic. This anime is a great one to remember even thought I hate any kind of animes with some horror elements.  I am so glad I watched it, and it comes to my mind pretty often. If you are here because you want to know if shit is turning around or not, than yes, and its...
