I seldom write reviews in general, even more seldom for an MV that I have watched. Most MVs that I watch I never mark on site (otherwise my Anime: Watched section would be too cluttered and messy). But I was in awe of the animation in this. It is somewhat hashy because the style is so detailed but I do think the hashiness serves the video well. The color is sparse but used effectively. The collage elements genuinely work well with the abstract and detailed art style of the drawings. I usually see collage elements in MVs as haphazard and used as a stark contrast between itself and the drawings. This collage... See full review

This was a really cute little OVA. Despite being released in 1990, the whole feel is like an epitomization of the 80s with its neon and overt consumerism. The main character is a young 19yo boy, still in highschool, coming across his childhood crush at a nightclub one night. He wishes to rekindle his affections with the girl after finding out she broke up with her highschool sweetheart. This OVA does an amazing job evoking the essence of a summer fling. The OVA doesn't have a clear audience which I really enjoyed, moreso just directed at people that had school crushes and fleeting romances. I thought... See full review
This was the most accurate portrayal of Buddhist living I have ever seen. The raunchy and horny priest and the mother who looks like she hasn't aged a day over 25. Don't worry--not only did the priest go out for beers, he brought a girl home then did the hanky panky while she was still a tad tipsy. A full kitchen and master bedroom with a bed fit for a princess were just the perfect furniture fit for a buddhist temple.
Watching the characters perambulate about their animated world was wonderful and the priest had a dazzling, courageous stare to accompany his extremely warm and heartfelt... See full review
Yasuke is an admirable and really cool historical figure, so I was thrilled to see an adaptation of his story made by my favorite studio MAPPA. Although, Netflix has an unusual TV program contract: an opening season with episodes ranging from 4 to 8. Yasuke only has six episodes which would allow good establisment of the world--but the writers decided to have a full plot for only 6 episodes. This makes the pacing of the show pretty bad which in turn affects almost everything else. (They are planning for a second season though) Story: It's more centered on a fantasy plot than historical... See full review
This show puts zoology in a more fun and interactive format. If you aren't that interested from zoology or biology to begin with you're not really going to like the show. It is humorous though, it doesn't just spout science nonsense without comedy. The show is set up more episodically. There isn't an overarching storyline except that they need to make new commissions every episode. They'll make roughly two, but it goes into different kinds of detail on the biology--you shouldn't expect a whole biology lesson. There is a short part of the episode where they show the animal in real life and... See full review
First Half Dororo starts out somewhat in an episodic manner, with a new demon every episode. But because the vague premise of the plot was established in the first episode, it feels natural. The pacing is a little slow at first but you eventually become accustomed to it as it reveals Hyakkimaru's and Dororo's budding relationship. For the majority of the first half of the show, it centers on the relationships between the characters and a little less on the demon fights, which is a great way to warm up the audience to the show. The opening and the outro are both bangers that aren't super... See full review
