Akebi's Sailor Uniform

Mar 8, 2022

First and foremost, Akebi's Sailor Uniform is NOT "Deceptive advertising! A foot fetish ecchi about middle school girls!" That is a false, skewed statement. I do not typically point out another individual's opinion, since we are all entitled to our own views, but in this case, I will make an exception due to its misguided nature. If you came here expecting to find an ...

Love Live! School Idol Project

Jan 11, 2022

Before continuing, please note that this review covers both Love Live! School Idol Project and Love Live! School Idol Project 2nd Season. The individual season scores have been broken down and combined to create a single review score for both seasons. Story: It is only recently I have shown an interest in idol-themed anime series beginning with AKB0048, AKB0048: Next Stage, Idoly Pride, and now the Love Live! School Idol Project series with the latter being highly recommend to me by a few other fans of the genre. Our story begins at Otonokizaka High where the school is being threatened to close its doors... See full review

Don't Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro

Oct 7, 2021

Intro: The last two years in anime have been rough from the mounting delays to a flood of shows suddenly being released all in the same season, to a varying scale of future uncertainty. Whatever the reason, I feel as though watchers and enthusiasts of the medium are losing sight of one significant concept, which is that anime is just entertainment through creative expression. I have almost had to come to the defense of many of the artistic works that have been released in 2020/21 by writing reviews of select anime that I normally would not have. Don't Toy With Me, Miss...

Shomin Sample

Sep 27, 2021

Story: 9 points To be blunt, Shomin Sample is your typical trope-loaded anime about your everyday teenage boy’s wet dream of attending an all-girls school full of wealthy, cute, clueless teenage girls who all happen to fawn over this perfectly average teenage commoner. Kimito, a commoner god in the eyes of these reality-disconnected teenage girls, gets enrolled against his will into the Seikain Girls Academy, a hidden school surrounded by mountains. As the only male figure on the campus, he is selected to be the one who teaches these sweet, bumbling, wealthy teenage heiresses about life outside of... See full review

TAMAYOMI: The Baseball Girls

Sep 13, 2021

Hi baseball fans. Here is a detailed review of TAMAYOMI: The Baseball Girls. It is an underwhelming, low-rated anime that overachieved itself. Story: 15 points The story follows Yomi Takeda (a pitcher), Tamaki Yamazaki (a catcher), and the suspended baseball club at Shin Koshigaya High School (HS). The two girls are childhood friends who spent countless days playing catch and throw with each other before going their separate ways in middle school. One the first day of their new HS lives they suddenly and unexpectedly reunite. Yomi is so overjoyed that they decide to play some catch after school on the HS... See full review

Infinite Stratos

Jul 9, 2021

Story: 9 points Ladies and gentlemen, men, women, and all others. Prepare yourselves for what will surely be the most fun part I write in this review of Infinite Stratos (IS). Get ready to embark on a journey to the near distant future, where a wacky super genius with Rabbit Ears and lovely lady lumps is the great Inventor of these self-titled (IS) Mecha units. These manned machines, well actually, let me accurately re-state that last statement. These (wo)manned machines will revolutionize the world on a global scale, bringing peace and prosperity to all nations of the Earth! Ah forget it…this is... See full review

Battle Arena Toshinden

Jun 30, 2021

Please Note: Battle Arena Toshinden was a quick, last minute watch and review just to fill another two empty squares for my Anime Bingo Challenge: Spring 2021 Edition game board. Please take that into context when reading this review. Story Basing this completely on the anime and not the video game it is based off of, Battle Arena Toshinden takes place one year after a fighting tournament known as the Toshin Tournament has ended. First, we get a clip... See full review

Katana Maidens: Toji no Miko

Jan 20, 2021

Intro Before I begin this review, you, the reader, need to know upfront that there might be some noticeable bias on my part as it relates to Katana Maidens: Toji no Miko. The reason for that is simply because I have a personal interest and fascination in the construction, usage, art, etc. of both Japanese swords and swordsmanship. Story: 12/30 points When I first noticed this anime and saw its less than stellar rating of barely ⭐⭐⭐ (exactly 3.037 numerically out of 1,342 votes at the time of this published review), I just scoffed at the idea of watching this. However, what changed my... See full review

How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?

Jan 8, 2021

Story: 12/30 How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift? is a breath of fresh air since it is an anime that is geared around working out and exercising, eating right, and taking care of your body and mind. It is an anime that takes the exercises it promotes seriously, but takes the non-exercising aspects not overly seriously, which improve its overall enjoyability. A "supposedly" flabby girl in Hibiki Sakura is looking to shed some of her extra chunk in which I found it difficult to locate, unless of course you are expecting a... See full review

Rent-A-Girlfriend

Oct 4, 2020

Intro I was not intending on writing a review for Rent-A-Girlfriend, but many of the other reviews up to the time in which I published this review make it out to be one of the worst anime imaginable. That is simply not the case. After watching season one in full, here is my review. Story (15 points)
The anime is primarily about the near spineless, no guts, lying and self-loathing male main character, Kazuya Kinoshita. He is a college student who recently experienced his first girlfriend by way of the pretty-faced, nasty attituded, depraved, self-centered b**ch, Mami, who happened to be... See full review

I enjoyed making this review a little more than usual. I do not know why, per say, I just did. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did in writing it. Story:  3/30 The opening Idol musical number, sung by the lovely Jād Saxton, sets the perfect atmosphere for an anime about farming. As you witness the CG crowd going crazy over Yuka Kusakabe’s energetic performance, it is difficult to not think about all the agricultural cultivating methods we are about to learn. After all, Japanese idols are all about farming? Huh? What am I writing? That’s... See full review

Aria the Scarlet Ammo: The Butei Come and Train at a Hot Spring

Jul 1, 2020

Oh, how interesting Aria the Scarlet Ammo could’ve been had it reduced the length of the TV series and increased the length of its OVA, since the one-episode OVA is better than the entire 12-episode series. The story takes place at a secluded mountain hot spring where the Butei students’ teacher, Miss Umeko Tsuzuri, intends on a special training camp for her select students from her class; more specifically, most of the main and secondary...

It is where Haruka discovers beach volleyball for the very first time and ends up falling in love with it. Her desire to learn, work, play, and have fun with it drives Kanata to get back into playing herself, even through all of her tribulations and self-doubts. Eventually, she ends up teaching Haruka the game along side a few fellow players in Twin Thomas sisters, Claire and Emily. Together, they form the... See full review

Interviews with Monster Girls

Jan 4, 2020

Story:  8/10 Simple, sweet, and with a touch of unique. In following with the same “unique” twist of my own, the secondary premise is about a world where both humans and nonhumans (i.e. vampires, succubae, etc.), coexist together peacefully. There are only a select few nonhumans, or demi-humans (D-humans) in the world, but what adds a flavor of intrigue is the fact that a normal human couple can randomly create and give birth to a D-human baby. It sounds unorthodox, but it’s a rather interesting and different twist on D-humans. The main premise is about a high school teacher named... See full review

One day late after school, Aya and Miki somehow find their way into this little gaming shop owned by a large man named Takeru. Intimidating to the girls at first, things change when they find out that Midori works part-time at this particular establishment.

They happen to be randomly selected, strong, talented people who receive special abilities bestowed upon them by the Goddess of Fate. They exist only to defeat the re-resurrected Demon God who rules over creatures known as fiends, but who desires to rule over fiends and humans alike.

However, before it did, I had perused the store several times keeping an eye on any too-good-too-pass-up deals. The eight-disc DVD set of Kiddy Grade just happened to be one such deal. STORY (5) The timeline is in a futuristic universe where humans have expanded and inhabited a vast number of different planets. Alongside expanding the populace, technology too has significantly advanced, which means increasing crime... See full review

Intro: This is a simple review of Fight League: Gear Gadget Generators that is intended on giving a brief idea of what to expect when watching this. Story: Uh...futuristic fighting with mechanical gadgets? Honestly, there is no truly defined plot or purpose of what's going on from episode to episode. Most often it's just another challenger for the Boltechs to have to battle in the GGG Cup Tournament. Only after about a dozen episodes or so do the writers attempt to throw some actual plot with substance into the storyline. One can appreciate the effort and the change is welcomed, but the results are still... See full review
