Score 8/10

Well this was unexpected. From the start it looked like I was to be getting a fairly played straight teenage action anime, soon however…it became clear there were cracks in this veneer. It started with the silly fat guy sidekick, fair enough, but then the school nurse showed up...

For a little while I loved this anime. When I first started watching it I thought it was the best thing ever. I got obsessed in the way I sometimes do with particularly good things. As time went by however and access to episodes of it proved hard to get my interest waned and slowed. When they got...

When I heard this film existed I knew I had to watch it. Despite initial misgivings I really grew to like the Haruhi Suzumiya TV series, its one of my favourite animes probally. Yes, most of the second series was an absolute annoying chore to watch, and yes, I know that was the point (they...

Wow, I'm really not getting where all the hate for Dears is coming from. I didn't want to watch this at first. The title sounds awful and a bit...'gay' (in the way the kids mean it these days), the main advertising art puts me in mind of the sort of thing from the cover of my chobits manga...
