Knights of Sidonia

(77.73%) A GOOD EXAMPLE OF CGI DONE WELL: (DRAFT) This is one of those anime I just happened to come across when flipping through the listings on Netflix, and since it was licensed and localized by Netflix, it must have been at least a decent anime. I mean, Netflix isn't doing half bad when it comes to their... See full review

Sound! Euphonium

Aug 28, 2016

(89.83%) THIS ONE TIME AT BAND CAMP: (DRAFT) I can rarely say that I've seen a good representation of what high school band class was like in any form of media. If anyone has seen the movie "Drumline" and was actually IN drumline or just concert band class in general, you'd know that the movie, and many others like it, are horrible examples of what band class is like. Does that mean that "Sound! Euphonium" is a good example? Maybe... I think this anime is one of the best slice-of-life anime I've seen in a while, and while "band camp" isn't necessarily the...

High School DxD

(73.45%) I'M IN A LOVE/HATE SITUATION: As a form of entertainment, it has many pros and cons in all of the categories listed below. However, if you, like me, are a Christian in any way, shape, or form, you may not be a very big fan of this show. The concept has obviously been done to death in many other anime, but this one, in my opinion, takes it too far. This is what I mean by "love/hate". Something in me wants me to like it, but there seems to be a strong force shying me away from it whenever I put it on. That's not to say I didn't enjoy it. It's anime, so even if I don't...

(57.25%) GUNS + BOOBS = GRENADIER: (DRAFT) I can only imagine the thought process behind the people who made this anime... Writer: "Woah, dude! I got a great idea for an anime. It's got guns in it, some guy with a sword, boobs, baloons, hot springs, and the Joker." Director: "Hmm... I like guns, I like boobs, and I like baloons! What's not to like? I LOVE IT, but make sure the girl characters reload their guns with their boobs." Writer: "Ummmm.... OK!" I'm going to be 100% honest with you... This anime is the first... See full review

The World is Still Beautiful

Aug 13, 2015

(68.55%) PRETTY AVERAGE: This was just an anime that I came across looking through Crunchyroll. I will say that fantasy-romance anime do happen to be my favorites. I've already talked about how great the romance in "Dusk Maiden of Amnesia" was, and actually, this one wasn't too far from being as good as "Dusk Maiden". The World is Still Beautiful was pretty much a mixed bag for me. there were some things I thought were great, some things I thought were okay, some that were annoying, at least one of everything on the menu. I will say that the... See full review

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia

Aug 12, 2015

(77.75%) I LOVE GOTHIC ANIME: I really love fantasy-romance anime. In fact, most of my all-time favorites are within that genre, but what I like even more are anime that focus mostly on the drama. I generally feel like, whenever I watch a romance anime, no matter what the secondary genre is, I always feel more engaged and connected with the story and characters to the point where I have to continue watching without interuptions. This is also why I like shows like "Fate/Stay Night" and "My-Hime". Even though they are real heavy on the action, plot... See full review

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Aug 5, 2015

(79.60%) TOOK ME LONG ENOUGH: I'm not the biggest fan of the "Magical Girl" anime genre. In my review I did of "My-Hime", I mentioned that most Magical Girl anime are basically carbon copies of one of my least favorite anime of all time, Sailor Moon. While I do think that Madoka Magica is more similar to "Sailor Moon" than "My-Hime" is, Madoka Magica is still very dark and psychological. I may be making several comparisons to "My-Hime" and "Sailor Moon", since they are the only other "Magical Girl" anime I have... See full review

Murder Princess

May 8, 2014

(89.20%) SHORT DOESN'T MEAN BAD: I came across this show about six months ago (As of April 2014) while I was first really getting into anime. If I said that the name MURDER PRINCESS didn't strike me as a very interesting name for an anime anime at first glance, I'd be lying. So, naturally I clicked on it to check it out and the first thing I saw was the number of episodes. When I saw that the show had only six episodes, I thought it was a joke, hypathetically. I mean, come on, SIX episodes? Naturally, I took the obvious guess that this show was going to have... See full review

Before I start this review, I'd like to point out that if you are a huge nostalgic fan of this show and have the slightest idea that my opinion might be different than yours, then you're probably going to hate this review. With that out of the way, the Pokemon anime is an overrated piece of crap.    Now, before you start having a heart attack, What can I say about Pokemon? Being born in the 90's, ever since I've been in school, I've been a fan of the Pokemon franchise. It started out in 1996 as the famous repetitive sequence of two games, each... See full review

(72.85%) THE BETTER ANIME BASSED OFF A GAME: I'm probably not the first to mention that anime shows based off of games are terrible. However, THE only exception to that statement is Yu-Gi-Oh! Shows like Pokemon, Sonic X, and Beyblade are all bull crap compared to this series. You'll find out why as we go on. (32.40%) STORY: (7.2/10)  Just in case you were either born yesterday, you're old, or you were deprived of most of your childhood,  Yu-Gi-Oh!'s story goes like this: YUGI, the main character, and his friend JOEY get a letter from MAXAMILLION PEGASUS, a filthy rich evil...

(94.75%) I WISH THEY DUBBED THIS SHOW: Let's get one thing straight... There are just some people out there who hate to read or cannot read fast. I'd just like to say that I feel sorry for those people because more than likely, they will miss out on an awesome epic mystery anime. What do I mean by "Miss out"? The anime is only available in English SUBTITLES. Yes, it is true that you could easily just pase the video when it gets to the long dialogue, but having to pause and play over and over would make me lose focus on the visual aspects of the show. If I wanted to not worry about... See full review

(87.07%) WHAT MADE ME THINK IT WAS BETTER?: (DRAFT) "My-Otome" (which does not translate to anything special, although Otome does refer to a specific type of video game intended for female audiences where one of the main goals is to develop relationships with male and sometimes even female characters) is a spin-off series of "My-HiME", not a sequel. Very much like A Certain Scientific Railgun is to A Certain Magical Index. It has most of the same character designs and voices of the respective characters of "My-HiME", while giving each a completely... See full review

(92.47%) FINALLY! A GOOD MAGICAL GIRL SERIES: I'll be honest with you. I an NOT a fan of most Magical Girl anime, you can thank Sailor Moon for that, the fact that a lot of the other Magical Girl anime out there, like Mermaid Melodies for example, are basically rip-offs of Sailor Moon. However, every once in a while you might come across a Magical Girl anime done right. For me, My-HiME is one of those anime. My-HiME, which actually translates to "My Princess" is one of the first anime shows I had ever watched, not including anything 4-kids-related, and I... See full review
