updated their review of 5 Centimeters per Second
Life is hard. Life is not fair. Life still has moments of undying beauty that can change your life even if the ending doesn't go as you intend. This anime is a bit of a niche for a number of reasons. One being it is a collection of short stories, most anime don't operate that may. Two being...Read triplestrike's full review

updated their review of Fractale
This show is exceptional! The story/ environment is so much fun. It is a strange world full of questions and new ways of living.
This anime is short and that is good! This anime does what it needs to and closes itself without going on forever and ever.

updated their review of Gungrave
One of my personal favorites. I do reccomend skipping the first episode, its makes things a little confusing and gives away some of the story.
This anime has a mobster, type of feel for probably 2 3rds of the anime. The characters are great, the story is great, the character development, at...Read triplestrike's full review

updated their review of From the New World
WARNING: Do not watch this if you do not like to think while watching anime. This show has so much going on and has so much to teach that it can get confusing. Thinking and or reflection may be required.
To begin with, this is not your ordinary anime, do not expect something you've seen...Read triplestrike's full review

updated their review of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Higurashi season one (the first 26 episodes) may seem like kind of an a$$hole of a season. I say that because nobody is trust worthy, it feels as though the only point of the show is to watch seriously messed up scenarios that continue even though logically they are conflicting. This will be...Read triplestrike's full review

updated their review of School Days
School days. Very lighthearted title. This anime however isn't so lighthearted. What's great about this anime is the way it breaks foundations. It begins as a fairly ordinary anime and will proceed not as you expect it, WHICH WILL UPSET MANY PEOPLE. Not everybody is used to such strange turn of...Read triplestrike's full review

updated their review of Murder Princess
I didn't hate it. Lets start there. Story is okay, (minor spoilers) you've got a pcincess who accidentally switches bodies with a bad ass mercinary, that's the majority of it.
The animation looks good actually but action isn't very long, they spend most of the battles with still frame...Read triplestrike's full review

updated their review of Howl's Moving Castle
The story develops and changes as the movie goes on. I won't spoil anything but the stroy progresses along with the characters through a sense of harmonization that binds the two aspects together.
It looks a tiny bit old but with the style of the castle and the environments around them...Read triplestrike's full review

(minor spoilers?)

updated their review of Clannad
I would call this primarily a drama, with comedy in it, not a harem or ecchi. This is legit. SO legit. Do not watch this unless you are legit, do not watch this if you can't handle anime on a serious level, return to your mediocrity and resume watching anime without substance or a deeper meaning...Read triplestrike's full review

This will be one quick review. Basically, this anime is pretty terrible however, it is kinda sweet and totally silly at the same time.

The basic story of Angel Beats is that a guy dies and finds himself in a sort of replica of normal life however he can not die. There he meets a group of teens who are fighting against a girl named angel.

Cowboy Bebop has been around for a long time but I only just got around to watching it. I remember a little bit of it playing on cartoon network when I was little but it didn't really make much sense to me at the time. Now that I've watched it all the way through I think it is spectacular. The...Read triplestrike's full review

updated their review of Elfen Lied
Powerful. More than once my jaw dropped. Sadly enough its only 13 episodes but an amazing 13. There is not just blood and gore (although there is a lot) there is also some drama and other elements that help balance the anime. If you have an open mind, please please watch, i don't...Read triplestrike's full review

Warning, this anime is different. It is very different. It is not for everybody. It is slow and thought out and complex. It may be a bumpy ride if you are prepared to zone out and not use your brain. This anime is best to not watch alone, talking it out...Read triplestrike's full review

Story=ninja's except it's not terrible and chilidish and isn't afraid to have people die. Enough said.

The real quality that makes this anime an instant favorite of mine is the way in which it asks questions; questions about trust, questions about who we are, questions about what made us the way we are. These questions are not something most shows push for.

This is best suited for people who don't watch anime much, I've gotten quite a few friends into this who normally stay away from anime. Its really easy to jump in anywhere and enjoy.
