Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day

Nov 4, 2019

This anime is a gem. ■■■ Story & Characters ■■■ Without trying to spoil too much, this is a very emotional anime, with a focus on friendship and death. I really liked all of the characters, they all are memorable and have a lot of charm, and I love how they handled character building. I really don't want to say any more, just watch it. ■■■ Art & Animation ■■■ Great! I loved the artstyle, everything was bright and colorful. Background art is superb and really detailed, and actually adds a lot. The animation itself... See full review

KonoSuba – God's blessing on this wonderful world!

Nov 4, 2019

First off, I'll be honest: I don't think I understand this Anime... ■■■ Story & Characters ■■■ This anime is a big parody on the isekai genre. It doesn't take itself seriously AT ALL, and it's more focussed on comedic elements than the whole isekai thing. There isn't much more story aside from the "Main character is dead and now inside another world" idea. Each episode has its own random, easygoing story. That is all fine, I love comedy, slice-of-life and I don't really like isekai, so I really expected to get some laughs here... But I... See full review

■■■ Story & Characters ■■■ This show is mainly focussed on characters, which I really liked. Most of the characters are unique enough, and pretty memorable. The story is used to drive the interactions between the characters, but the character development itself isn't very deep. The story is kinda dark, but they really try to keep it light-hearted by adding some comedy and character interaction. A few episodes in things start to change, and unfortunately I think that is where some issues appear: The second half of the anime feels pretty different from the first, and... See full review

Harukana Receive

Sep 10, 2019

■■■ Story & Characters ■■■ I actually really enjoyed this anime. It's not just a beach episode lasting for a whole anime, it's about two teams playing volleyball, friendship, and relations between the two teams. While it's all nothing revolutionary, I think the story was enjoyable enough, and really did enjoy the characters, especially the bright but easygoing Haruka. I don't think the Ecchi tag is justified; there's not THAT much forced fanservice here, only girls walking in bikini's all the time. I do think the ending was kinda weak, they could have gotten...

Little Witch Academia TV

Aug 27, 2019

■■■ Story & Characters ■■■ Where do I even start... This anime is filled to the brim with so much charm. The story itself initially seems like a pretty generic fantasy story about witches, almost Harry Potter like, though there are some twists later on which I could really appreciate. Without risking to spoil it any further; I just think it was solid, and it could be enjoyed by literally anyone. The characters are where this anime really shines, I think; every one of them just have so much charm, and are so memorable. Akko, Sucy and Lotte interacting with... See full review

Girls und Panzer

Aug 27, 2019

■■■ Story & Characters ■■■ I don't think I really can call this a "story", though there is a very basic plot of beating opponent after opponent to be the very best in the end. This is an anime about moe girls, fighting battles in tanks as a sport. Yeah... It's that absurd. I personally don't really like the exuses they used to make sense of that all; it just feels like they wanted to slap anime girls and tanks together. All that aside though, some of the actual battles are kinda entertaining, and the slice-of-life elements were a nice distraction as well... See full review

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Souma

Aug 1, 2019

■■■ Story & Characters ■■■ When I started watching Shokugeki no Souma, I thought it was a really refreshing show. It's a show about cooking, and food porn, which although probably has been done before, isn't something you see every day. After the initial character and setting introductions, the show moves on to the cooking battles. Which to be honest, became kinda bland a few episodes in... The comedy is pretty good, but aside from that it's just battle after battle, and you already know that Souma is going to win, otherwise the anime wouldn't continue...

Angel's 3Piece!

Aug 1, 2019

■■■ Story & Characters ■■■ The first two episodes were off to a pretty good start for me; I'm a musical gear nerd and musician/mixer myself, and I really loved the way they focussed on that. I thought this would be a sort of K-ON!, cute girls doing cute things with a focus on music. But that focus changed pretty quickly, making it a very bold loli-fanservice show. The overall plot that they kinda touched on in the first episodes pretty much disappeared to the background, only giving you the generic slice-of-life/iyashikei episodes. That isn't necessarily bad, but... See full review

No Game No Life

May 31, 2019

It really is a mystery to me why this anime has a rating of 4,3 and is being ranked at #113 at the time of writing.
I'm not going to say this anime is the pinnacle of trash (i'm a trashy weeb), i'm also not the type that will complain about the fanservice, there certainly were some enjoyable parts. But all in all, i'd rather call this anime; No Impact, No life. Nothing that happens really makes any impact. The story didn't grab me at all, characters aren't interesting or deep enough to care for. The pacing of everything feels very off to me, no real buildups either, i felt absolutely nothing watching... See full review
