Absolutely great anime! It will have you captivated and also binge-watching until the very end! The only problem i had with this anime is that it isn't finished i mean sure the first season did but it basically left a huge plot hole in it with no season 2 (as of yet i hope) But anyway if your looking for something good to watch i would recommend this anime :) Also this is my very first review \(^-^)/See full review
THE SPOILERS AT MAGIC ANIME REVIEW This is a review for the first two arcs only. I dropped this series after the second arc (Episode 18) as I saw no value in watching further. Even if it did improve significantly, this does not excuse these bad arcs nor does it stop people from dropping this series. To begin, the first few episodes hyped viewers up for what seemed a great premise of discrimination but then fell short soon after. The main character Tatsuya is shown to have a weakness and overcomes it. But by the time we first see him, he already went through the hardship of overcoming it. A chance for... See full review
My verdict: AN ENJOYABLE WATCH Welcome to the NHK! is an anime that hit me a little too close to home. I wouldn't go so far as to call myself a shut-in, and I certainly don't have delusions of grandeur or a persecution complex like the main character, but there were elements of the story that were so painful and seemed so complex that I couldn't help but think that the characters were real. I never really expect myself to give anything a ten, so the fact that I've given the characters of this anime a nine point five is a testament to how deeply I feel they were developed. I'd like to note that this... See full review

Story: 6/10 Episodes 1-4: Intriguing setting/premise. Pace is a bit slow. Comedy is hit and miss (but mostly miss.) Episodes 5-7: Finally we get to know a bit more of what's happening...but the payoff (for waiting 4 episodes) seems a bit underwhelming. An exciting battle and a bit of fanservice (not sure if one can call it that though) gives one a sense that things are finally taking a turn for the better... Episodes 8-12: Unfortunately, the pace slows down again, even more than before. Main plot gets sidetracked by a mildly interesting backstory for arguably the best character in the series (not...

ok, well. . . . this anime is more proof that without a solid and entertaining story, you have nothing.
This is simply not a good anime. If you want a better fantasy anime, go watch Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash or Rage of Bahamut.
I guess this anime had some scenes that could have been cool, and some characters that could have been cool and some themes that, again, could have been cool. In the end though it was not the themes, the characters, or the scenes, it was a shi**y storyline and terrible execution.

Really enjoyed this season. I liked that it happened at a different school, so it wasn't a matter of finding out who was left behind but rather, why this group were so great. I enjoyed the sense of reflection of the first season, and the struggle Aquas shared while finding their own path and realization of their true goals.See full review
Overall a great anime btu the manga is even better i strongly recommend reading the manga before watching the anime ;)See full review
The Akatsuki no Yona anime ended just after Yona finished collecting the four dragons, completing them by adding Zeno, the cheerful yellow dragon, into the mix in the last episode. Most, watching the anime are left with the impression of Zeno as this bright sunny like character. But there are a few scenes that show that he does have more depth then just the clueless, happy go lucky, weak yellow dragon that really make you curious about his backround... I fell in love with the anime so after it ended I immediately devoured each and every chapter of the manga that picked up... See full review
For a video review, check out my Youtube channel. Link on my profile page. *So let’s start with what Shinkai is know for: the animation. Now the version that I watched wasn’t the highest of qualities but even then I could already see that the animation in Knnw was amazing yet again. Not Shinkai’s best animation in my opinion, that was Garden of Words, that animation was simply out of this world. But this animation was very beautiful and what struck my attention the most was the light effect. Shinkai is such a master at animating light, there’s no one else who can do it better than...

this is a very cute anime if you're into shōjo!!! i believe that its a good watch, the episodes are short and very had cliff-hangers that get you hooked instantly! the characters all have their own personalities which makes you able to almost connect to your "type" more! the story is a good mix of romance, drama, and comedy!
(the opening can also get you- once you've watched about 3 episodes you know how to sing it)
i would definitely recommend to a friend interested in gooey love stories!!!
What I Liked: The lucious yet wistful theme song. Sound design and soundtrack are both perfect, cute and playful when they need to be, and the insert songs aren't too intrusive. The insert song "Tori wa Tori ni". Chibi-neko and Raphael's designs are lovely, and the whole "cats look like humans to themselves, but look like cats to humans" thing was an interesting choice. All the different little plot points, such as Tokio's guilt and the search for Persia, that seem to be as wandering as Chibi-neko herself. What I Didn't: Tokio's mum can seem abrasive and hysterical (a by-product of the... See full review
Honestly, this is not an anime if you want a cute love story. It's not a good anime if you are a shotacon either, I don't really think. (but then again what do I know about that lol) I thought this anime was funny and amusing and weird enough to keep me quite entertained. In fact, I liked it a lot better than some of the MANY animes this season that took themselves way too seriously and therefore invite people to hyper-critisize them for failing to live up to what they were trying to sell. I thought the poop jokes were funny!!! Seriously. And I am a 23 year old femaile. I also... See full review

***THIS IS A VERY LIGHT SPOILER REVIEW***
I vividly remember watching a series called Aria in my earlier anime watching days. It had me mesmerized with its amazing visuals, music, and character interactions. It told the story of 3 young women working on getting better at their craft. For 3 seasons it developed into an amazing series that I wish we had more of.
Amanchu is written by the same author that did Aria and while it does do a great job of hitting most of the marks laid by Aria I feel that it missed its stride in a few instances.
Story: 3.5/10 What made Aria great was... See full review
Well that was a bit of a mess. Sure, the parts of the mess were alright, but looking back I really don't understand how the story progressesed. It just jumped from one thing to the next and hoped you could keep up. Initially, the story is about a high school boy who keeps getting attacked by monsters. And then, it's about an occult club. And then... I don't want to spoil too much but it pretty much changes the plot line every few episodes. So much so you'll forget what was actually happening before. Individually the parts are told pretty well, but how they joined the stories together just meant none... See full review
A few disclaimers before I begin here: this is a spoilers-free review of Higurashi No Koro Ni and Higurashi No Koro Ni Kai (both seasons, the whole series). I promise I will not ruin anything if you have not seen it; but for the purpose of this review it is too important not to mention.
The story of the Higurashi No Koro series follows a band of teenagers stuck in an infinite time loop in June 1983, in a remote country town named Hinamizawa. There are many small arcs that are clearly marked by the... See full review
This anime is ok, but basically nothing at all happens and there is no plot. So it's just 12 episodes of cute kid and clumsy dad who regularly get together with a shy highschool student to learn how to cook different dishes - every episode ends with them eating the dish they cooked and looking ecstatic because of how they managed to make it so tasty and delicious. That's all there is to it. Tsumugi-chan, the kid, is really cute but that isn't obviously enough. Tsumugi's dad and Kotori-chan, the student whose mother owns the restaurant where they meet up to try out their cooking skills are likeable enough... See full review
This season was thousand times better than the first season. Although the first season totally rocked! I enjoyed it very much and I'm super sad that it ended.

Love Live Sunshine is the greatest showcase of noise escaping underage girl's mouths since Boku no Pico. Not only that, but it's a fantastic plagiarization of Love Live! School Idol Project, stealing the plot, the character tropes, and even the name of the show! Oh...wait, this is a sequel or soft reboot or whatever? Then why didn't they at least try to make something different? I mean, as cute and entertaining as the first series was you can only redo the same things so many times before people get bored. Like, the only difference between this show and the first series is the fact that we're focusing on a... See full review
i have never written a review before but i felt i had to for this one, watched all of the origional berserk only to get to the 2016 version and find that the animation was unwatchable for me its shit. cheap cgi like you would find in a diy videogame or youtube animated video, actually i take that back every diy animation ive seen looks better than this nausiating fo-3d garbage the origional wasnt that great but even 1997 animation blows this out of the water dont waste your timeSee full review
I love this series I grew up watching it but as I kept watching I felt that I was so close to the characters. I highly recommend it if you like action and adventure with romance and betrayal if you choose to watch it there will be very emotional parts and very exiting I hope you watch and love it like I do.See full review
This is NOT a spoiler free review. Some points in the anime maybe reviewed but dont worry as the first two sections will be spoiler free. Re:Zero, overall it is great anime, however on how it developes its characters it seems to me that it should not be recmmanded as a anime for new anime lovers. its story is soild yet it break away from the current meta of fantasy / of a different world animes. Just its first epsoide let me to be going wow this is interesting. Story i gave it a 8/10, as i felt that the story was inovative in the sense that not only it has the usual stuck in a fanatsy...

Some stories make a great impact on you. It makes you think about your decisions,friendship, commitments and how true you are to yourself. This is one of them. It shows how by taking certain actions or not taking, can change the entire chemistry of life. For the growth of a human being, the people surrounding him should also evolve. overall a very good show which makes you take a good look on your life.See full review
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. In this case I'm not talking about a 90 pound girl catching a multi-ton cruise missile and throwing it back. Yes, it is stupid but it is a stupid that I'll allow. It's anime. Things like this are normal here and I'm pretty much fine with it. It annoys... See full review

I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying: 2nd Thread carries on from where the first season ended. This is still the story of a young married couple, who still (despite being married for over a year) find each other inexplicable at times. Here ends the dry description and starts the subjective view. This series is an honest to god feel-good slice of life show that might exaggerate a bit, but is grounded in realism. I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying: 2nd Thread is the greatest example in anime of a positive adult relationship. The levels of adorable here are so extreme that it usually...

Hello. For me it was great story with a real life taste, the story was awesome, it was interesting to watch until last second. I didn't liked animation, it was kind of weird, but nice too, so i think 8/10 enough. The music was extraordinary, during the ending my heart melted, music was applied with a action and all of this created wonderful atmosphere. Characters were good too. They were original and it wasn't easy to understand them.See full review
I watched it few days ago, and now this movie is TOP1 in my list of anime movies. The movie was realeased in 1988, it was 28 years ago and look at that animation, it's awesome drawing for these years. The story really cute, it destroyed my heart. For me it's amazing movie, but it would be better with better sounds, i didn't liked to listen these songs and all sounds, but anyway it's 10/10, deal with it. This movie awesome and everyone must watch it.See full review
Overall I think that it was very funny and dramatic at some points. I found myself thinking about ships when I was watching this because you can so many that are compatable.I was watching this show for a very long time before I finished it. I would reccomend this to any one who is ready for a long anime filled with comedy, unsuspected turns, and some dramatic moments once and a while.See full review

To live or to die? Subaru has no choice but to live, no matter how many times he dies. Whether your a rookie to the "Fantasy World" Genre or a Veteran looking for something fresh, Re: Zero has something for you.

When death strikes and the end is nowhere in sight, Subaru must struggle, When all seems right the ride takes more twist and turns. Will there be an end? Note: this is my first EVER review to...

Ah, Blade and Soul, how I love these three words. It is one of the best journeys I have ever had in online games and I will never forget it in my life. Have you played in that game yet, you have? Then I am sure that you will understand me. Blade and Soul is the game, where I read every single dialogue, every single quest, I know everything about that game. (Almost). And when I found out that one of my most favorite games ever had an anime adaptation, I could not even think about anything else; the only thought in my head was to watch it and to do it as soon as possible. However, my bliss was destroyed... See full review
I actually really like Ao Haru Ride. The only reason I've given it such a bad rating is because this OVA or episode was completely unnecessary. It consists of 90% scenes from Mabuchi and Futaba's past that we've already seen in the actual anime. The difference being that in the anime the scenes are scattered whereas in this episode it's a cohesive whole. Also, personally I feel the animation and sound having taken a step down in this episode. All in all it's not really a requirement to watch this because it doesn't add anything to the story that you don't already know. (If you watch this after watching the... See full review
Normally I rate animes better than most people, but in this case it's different. This anime started off really interesting. The story was refreshing, the characters were lovable and the setting was great... but somehow starting from episode 13 it just lost its touch and just focused way too hard on extended dialogs of love and other emotions, which just didn't reach me. I do like romance animes, but I simply hoped for so much more than that. (And that *SPOILER* the highlight of the story is him confessing his love to Emilia is really not what I was hoping for from this anime. I mean seriously!) It had so... See full review
This review is for both seasons of Honey and Clover. It's an anime that rates very highly in my personal ranking and that I would definetely recommend to anybody who is interested in the romance / slice of life genres - but not just that, if you're simply looking for a very well-written anime with good character development that manages also to alternate funny, comedic moments with more dramatic, tear-wrenching ones, Honey and Clover is most definetely not a waste of time. It's got a bitter-sweet ending which leaves you kind of crying and smiling at the same time, but optimistic and hopeful that life - all... See full review
This OVA was an excellent addition to the anime. Deviating from the usual horror of the anime, the OVA focuses more on the loving relationship between the Misaki and her sister. The animation is on par with that in the anime but the sound is a bit of a let down in comparison. I recommend watching this after the anime because it is kind of peaceful after the gore. Also, it was quite emotional. Because we get to see a slightly more open version of Mei who is usually more reserved and the love between the two sisters is also beautifully portrayed.See full review
I became aware of an anime called Cross Game years ago and I just finally got around to finishing it. I started watching Cross Game hoping to see a genuine slice of life show about baseball, with a good mood and a relaxing atmosphere. For the most part, I got what I expected and was overall satisfied, although it wasn't the smoothest journey to the end. Despite the great presentation, I actually dropped Cross Game early on and I thought I was done with it. Some weeks later, I had a sudden urge to watch it again and it was 2nd time watching that got me hooked on the anime. I don't review many anime, but I... See full review
So far, we have one other review with just says that it looks bad. Well, I'm going to go into more depth than that. So, for a start, I can handle cheap animation if the story, characters, or music, or something else is good, but this doesn't seem to have any of them. Mind you, I only watched one episode, but 2 minutes in, it began to feel like a chore to finish it. So, the animation isn't just that CGI stuff, but it occasionally switches over to still shots where it is drawn. The contrast is really jaring, and they manage to spend an entire 20 seconds on a still frame that was unnecessary. Characters walk... See full review
To those 3000+ people considering immersing themselves in Haikyuu!!, I can only say DO IT! I love, love, loved it! The characters are very real and there are so many hilarious moments throughout the show. You will become invested in following the characters on their emotional journeys. I felt all their rises and falls as though I was personally affected by what was happening in their lives. This is one of the few animes in which I have been literally screaming at my laptop screen in excitement one minute and crying the next.

At first, this anime was kinda confusing and hard for me to grasp due to the animation style, but as I watched more of the series I somehow connected to the characters before I could stop myself. The plot of the story was something that definitely caught my attention and I wish that the ending had been a bit better. In the end, just like all animes that I watch that have endings, I wanted to cry because there isn't a second season (Which there totally needs to be!)See full review
Say anything you like about how convoluted Final Fantasy 7 was becoming with every new entry, but Advent Children was a good movie. From the exceptional soundtrack, to the CGI that still looks amazing after a decade, to the cool action scenes, to seeing the characters more human-like. Even the plot which was confusing and rushed flows far better if you watch the extra footage from the complete version.
Kingsglaive on the other hand has nothing going for it besides the CGI, and maybe the action if are not confused by the constant teleporting everybody does every 10 seconds. There is no... See full review
I know what many watch this for or expect, and this season has a very low amount of loli hentai (I believe it was no more than 2 scenes of Illya x Kuro and a couple of ecchi scenes with some of Illya's brief transformation outfits and for some of the other characters). There is also one bath scene that clearly was squeezed in briefly because we didn't have enough suggestive content. Things are also quite different this time than the previous seasons actually, so those who may not have liked the previous seasons may find this one more to their liking. There is a heavy focus on combat action and none of the... See full review

WARNING: Only read after watching the original anime Positive *So what was there positive about this anime since a lot of people were very worried about this adaptation. Now what was positive was our main character Guts. In the old anime Guts was already a great character because of his ruthlessness but here in the new anime Guts became even greater.

Possibly biased, but I love anything vampire and this anime had a lot of classical elements that were really appealing. Vampires and Werewolves are the dominant monsters here, so expect plenty of those, just know that in this case, most are on the good side and it isn't all evil. There is plenty of action and it never has a boring moment except for the first bit of the first episode. The first episode doesn't reflect the rest of this anime accurately until near the end just as an FYI. The story is actually split into 3 bits more or less but done in a continuous flow.

We live in the decade where anime are defined by videogames and time resets. Someone had the bright idea of combining both trends and the result is Re:Zero. I mean, holy shit, 90% of casual anime viewers are going to check it out the second they hear what the premise is about, and the rest will be dragged in by the readers of the source material. The exact same strategy that made Sword Art Online and Erased so famous in a couple of episodes.

A game of survival on an island and incorporating different styles of bombs along with the concept of trustability outlines what to expect here. There are a few ideas here that match ideas from other anime such as the reason as to why the people end up on the island, or the actual game itself has been seen in other shows. If the tags sound appealing then watch it for sure. Being a gamer, I found the theme rather relatable and many of the concepts throughout as well. A good portion of the anime is rather dark and violent. There is no disappointment on the amount of action either. The ending is... See full review
