Metallic Rouge

this one is a tough one, overall its not bad but how the show started out and how it ended feel like vastly different shows. the major issue is that once the credits roll it hits every typicall issue most animes have now, cliffhanger, the power of love, or friendship, outofplace/shoehorned characters that really dont serve any purpose and predictability. after the first couple episodes the expectations felt like ergoproxy meets irobot but quickly turned into powerrangers meets super kid friendly irobot, the tone change is almost immediate making the rest of the watch frustrating. not every show needs...

SHY

Dec 31, 2023

another superhero show.....still Shy's alright if youre cool with the fromula, animation solid and sound is alright, the characters are the way too typical 1 dimensional plywood characters and the story feels like its been done before i think? certainly the setting has been done buts its not bad just i dont know how many shows have stories about the heart being the gateway to freedom/salvation etc before it just becomes totally unbearable. i dont mean to sound negative its a ok.  if you need something in the background then sure otherwise stay away theres certainly better out right now

Jujutsu Kaisen 2nd Season

Dec 31, 2023

Just to get the formalities out of the way. Season 2 was awesome, and the animation was great. This season was like a squirrel in a room full of acorns, nonstop. So, if you enjoyed the first season's action then you'll enjoy this one. But I'm not here for that, now it's all about the characters and the story here. I'll be spoiler free until the end (with warnings)  First the story, the ending was rough from a “I'm interested in the story”. We are left with 3 answers and barely any direction on what will happen in season 3. JJK is one of the most popular shows right now it really didn't... See full review

Ron Kamonohashi's Forbidden Deductions

Dec 28, 2023

a solid detective show but can get old fast. everything about it is average but if you want a little change of pace give it a shot theyve already teased a season 2 and the pacing moved quickly(it kind of had to) so maybe theyll make a nice solid ending. That being said the whole idea of a "straight man" can get boring and repetitive pretty fast. so if thats not to your liking stay away otherwise kick back turn the brain off and enjoy. heres the more detailed review animations is pretty good no complaints  sound is passable for a detective show youd think it would be better but sound is...

SPY x FAMILY Season 2

this season was realy fun and theres no reason to not watch it, BUT the main story barely progressed if at all making this entire season feel like a side story instead of the main show. thats all thanks for the read and have a good one

The Faraway Paladin 2nd Season

Dec 28, 2023

Season 2 was alright everytihing was fairly similar to season 1 and the Adventure had a solid continuation. though the main issue is the story really has no compelling overarching story. had there been something else tied to this adventure that occured than it would seem more intersting. if you enjoyed the first season this one will be slightly more boring but still good. otherwise my greatest isssue i see is every damned sudio tossing the sequels to another studio and the quality gets worse which it felt worse here thats all thanks for the read and have a good one

Goblin Slayer II

Dec 25, 2023

after all these years we finally get season 2 only for it to be a massive dissapointment. significantly worse animation, music was great but the characters were 99% the exact same but without hlaf the charm the 1st season had. and the story although intersting was mired by so much garbage cliches and troupes. did it really need a bulldhit harem? or a wannabe beach episode? no and it detracted greatly from what the show is about. there seems to be a really solid story in the background but its kept getting over shadowed by pointless side quests except for one which did make sense to the characters.  i...

The Ancient Magus' Bride Season 2: Part II

Dec 25, 2023

s2 is a christmas show now like die hard the ending occurs during christmas and thus the rules attach. Wish i could say it gave me a good warm and fuzzt christmas feeling but in actuallity it just wasnt as good as season 1. the major issue was leaning WAY to hard on basic anime troupes and cliches that really had no reason to exist ,even with the school serring not being that bad, especially in the later half of season 2 was facepalming frustration to watch theres also a extreme lack of fantasy that the previous additions gave us probably because it was more people based and not world/magic based but...

another rare show i tried to finish but couldnt its just so bad, imagine the most "depressed" 14 y/o making the most edgy story he could think of after his e girlfriend dumped him and this is what we would get. all the worst troupes and cliches wrapped into one ball of garabge. definetly avoid like the plague

Malevolent Spirits: Mononogatari - Part II

Oct 14, 2023

always nice to see a quick turn around for a season 2. Since its a sequel ill fast, animation sound and characters are all the same not solid and with some solid growth out of a few of them but overall nothing crazy. the story however is an improvement one everything but the ending, im sure its a longer manga series but having and ending that leaves to much open ended on a few fronts really does make it feel empty. still solid B show some comedy some action like a typical late 2000- early 2010s anime

this is a solid B teir show its got an interesting story but fails in the character and repitition department. the animation is par for right now bonus points for consistnecy. this ones a bit short since im really behind so long story short the shows alright but it currently doesnt have an end and having an open ending is really a show not worth watching. if they do release the sequel then its a solid interum show

The Devil is a Part-Timer!! (2023)

Oct 6, 2023

really not enjoyable at all the show complete veered away from the comedy of the first season fro a story that was mired by the characters that are good in a comedy but not good when put in a serious sense. This is going to be a negative one, with the way to long split between seasons would expect higher quality across the board. upfront the show isnt worth the time too many issues for too long a wait. heres the detailed review if you need more convincing    The animation genuinly wasnt good it was really inconsistent and was 90% eye sore. not sure why they never made the show only to rush it out...

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation 2nd Season

Oct 5, 2023

Finally the second season is here and its a solid one, the story moves foward and the annoying aspects of the first season are slowly widdle away hopefully the older the characters get. Animation is still top tier and the sound is solid,the characters are as a whole worse not bad but the characters from season 2 overall had much more going on and therfore more depth. These arent bad just not as interesting.   Now the story is a bit of a different story its starts off as we expected but at the halfway point the settings goes into a cliche i really dont like i wont specify to not spoil it. was it...

The Ancient Magus' Bride Season 2

Jun 23, 2023

WIT gave another show away and thankfully it still pretty good, i didnt think the story had a place to go since the first season wrapped up well. Chise goes to a magic university which is a very annoying cliche that occurs way to much in anime. that being said it didnt seem out of the ordinary here and it doesnt get to much in the way so its bearable. the season is not complete but part 2 is already announced still give it the 3/4 episode test if you dont like the new setting or characters then drop it its clearly the focus of the first part and the story kicks up at the end going into part 2. thats...

KonoSuba: An Explosion on this Wonderful World!

who wouldve prefered just being given the 3rd season a year early? Me that is for sure. its pretty simple if you need the good ole konosube world fix then watch it, its mostly alright. we already knew the majority of this story considering we had a whole movie for her and numerous flashbacks with with wiz and yunyun etc. so we all know why we had this season becasue of a certain allegedly unshowered folk. regardless the show is still mostly fun, and a glad to step back in.  that being said there was way to many of those pointless drama moments that would clearly amount to nothing. otherwise its a...

Vinland Saga Season 2

Jun 21, 2023

Vinland season 2 is finally over and its been a very long journey to get here. first off its difficult to suggest the 3/4 epsiode test because this season is just so slow and its clear that this season is pretty divided. Still i enjoyed season 2 dispite its flaws, although i do think it couldve been better. with solid but sometimes inconsistent animation, great music and some amazing characters and a compelling story makes this a very statisfying watch. i dont know if a season 3 is being worked on yet but personally it doesnt matter this season had a pretty damn good ending. i think if you can survive the...

so season 3 is now over and it was for better or worse another season of demon slayer. if you liked the previous itterations then nothings changed the fighjts are still good, animation is great sounds is nice and crisp, story is.... sparce and kind of weak and tanjiro wont shut the fuck up in fights. but if you are really tired of the incessant flashbacks,marvel like immersion breaking jokes mid combat and personally some weird word choices that maybe were a translation issue or at least i thought they didnt make sense, then maybe stay away. you shouldnt feel forced to watch just because its popular...

Fire hunter is the most interesting and one of the best of the non sequels this season but it does have problems. first the animation is very inconsistent depending on scene and epsiode after 5 it becomes much better, but it starts off rough. the sound is pretty good the characters are interesting the main cast is solid and most side characters are good as well. the story now is all over the place it starts off strong then once the true conflict comes into view you go from having a good idea of whats happening to damn near zero ill go deeper later but the "last" episode had a couple...

Another solid show wraps up this season, High card (thankfully a small name) is a decent show that lucky for the fans quickly announced a second season at the end. Now onto the show the animation.... works its not bad but it didnt really wow. the sound was mediocre so thats pretty par for the course. the characters are a frustrating they are almost ALL coined characters and the 50/50s are very annoying most of time which isnt a good thing. the story is all over the place becasue the MC really doesnt have one but instead the world just drags him into doing this instead of him driving the story forward.

Well this was the seasonal suprise for me, Spirits is a solid B grade not bad not great. pretty much everything is around average across the bored. the better aspects is the story, this kind of story was done fairly often for a bit but with isekais flooding the stage its been a while so its refreshing. okay animations and sound with decent characters make this a solid watch if your nearing the end of your list. So for the ole 3-4 episode if you think the story is lame or characters boring then drop it, there isnt a conclusion pending the outcome of the second season. thats it for the short one now heres the...

another long named is over and another one slots into the mediocre pile. theres definetly some postives to the show but its never expanded upon. the characters started strong but only handyboy made any changes,(unless the story says they need someone over powered) so they get boring pretty quick. The story isnt a story or atleast an over arching one, it would be more fair to say its a SOL but thats not what it say it is. Im sure people will like this more than i did so give the old 3-4 episode test if the characters seem boring or you dont like the lack of story then drop it, they are the only consistency...

Ningen Fushin: Adventurers Who Don’t Believe in Humanity Will Save the World

Mar 22, 2023

Another absurdly long named show is over and with a name like that you'd expect something grand. Instead you get a “that's it?”. Yes the show doesn't have an ending because it really doesn't have an overarching story. The animation and sound aren't really anything to write home about. So it's really the characters that stand above the mediocrity. The problem there is that their uniqueness quickly falls away after the first half leaving the show generic and lifeless all the way to the end. I wouldn't recommend it but if you're really bored with nothing to watch then give it 3/4 episodes if it... See full review

to your eternity season2 is finally done! and well it wasnt as bad as promised neverlands season 2 but if you were expecting a repeat of the first season story telling characters and drama. Then i would say temper expectations because its just not as good sadly. first id say to still watch it, its an ok addition and season 3 is already confirmed (But ill get into that later). so jumping straight into the fire, Eternity Season 2 has some problems a few major ones and a bunch of minors ones that break the worlds rules, throw the sense of immmerison and fantasy right out the window, pacing problems, some...

i know i am in the minority here but man this season sucked and it mainly rested on two things mob and the story. first off ill say that everything else the other characters and animation and sound are all great but the two aforementioned things just crush any hopes for the show being better. if you are already this far into the show almost nothing i say that spoiler free will turn you away so go right ahead but expectations low the first half is better and the second half is just awful.  so to explain, the show seems to have gone into an identity crisis so they passed it onto mob with no evil...
