So this is really cringe the anime for me. I like Romantic Comedy normally, but when its completely forced like this one is, it just gets old fast. This doesn’t make the show a bad anime as it does have good qualities to it if you can get passed the very cring painful start of the anime. Just the first Episode really wanted me to stop watching when they took away our main characters beloved pet because I don’t know about you, but if someone random tries to mess with your own beloved pet, you would completely hate that person too. I am glad I watched through the series to see how it turned out... See full review
Throughout my time looking at Anime movies or any type of animation, once in a while I find something that actually makes me think a little too hard then it probably should. Muchibei is one of those shows. I think one of the reasons why this movie (that’s about 57 seconds long) is rated so poorly on many different anime sites is because people are looking at this as a movie and not as a art piece. So I’m going to take a page out of writing an artist critic instead of an actual movie review. Just a warning, what I’m going to touch base on here may be a bit of a trigger to people who deal...

As a person who grew up with the original came out, I really don’t see the reason for them to make a 3D version of the same movie. It has been a long time since I have seen the original myself but I do remember quite a bit of it. From what I could tell, the personalities were basically on point to the original characters. Ash is always the headstrong and determined one always wanting to be the best, Misty is the token girl, Brock is the womanizer and caretaker. In the original I don’t remember us diving deep into the mind of Mewtwo as much as this version does, and I guess in that case it... See full review
I never heard of this series before I found the Animation on Netflix just a little bit ago. Because of this, I may not know the whole story or if there is anything before it. First we should talk about the characters. This is not that hard to talk about seeing that all the characters are pretty much stereotypes for video games. We have the wide eyed hero in Gran, the high ranking warrior in Katalina, the mysterious powerful damsel in distress in Lyria, and even our cute little mascot character in Vyrn. The other characters we meet kind of run in that sort of suit as well. It’s not a bad way of... See full review
First off, wow that is a really long title for an anime/manga. I have noticed this seems to of become a normal thing to make a whole sentence be your title for certain shows lately. Let’s talk about the characters first, like how most of my reviews go. The first character I would like to address is Bell Cranel, our main character. He is a rather naïve, childlike boy who became an adventure after he lost his Grandfather. He dreams of becoming a hero and to impress the ‘Sword Princess’ who saved him on one of his first few dungeon expeditions. Now, even after watching the show, I am... See full review
Pardon what I’m about to say… but what the hell did I just watch? No, seriously, what the hell did I just watch? It started out like a typical anime romantic comedy and then suddenly went into these strange chibi style mini segments with the school girls voiced by men. That was about 5 minutes of the first episode so what am I getting myself into? The premise of this show (from what I gathered) was that it was going to try and parry as many shows as they could fit in a 12 minute episode as possible. They don’t really hold any punches. The original story was a For panel surreal comedy... See full review
So, anyone that knows me knows that I am really not normally into military heavy shows. I’ll watch them but they never were really my cup of tea. But, I do like history and learning so when I found a anime about girls in tanks… I thought that it was probably just going to be catering to the people who like girls and tanks to be really fair. I didn’t pick it up for the longest time because I just thought it wouldn’t be interesting at all to me and I would drop it within the first few episodes. Guess who is sort of eating those words now that they have decided to take a look at it... See full review
Well, If it’s not school when your alive, its school when your dead. This show is like ‘School Rumble’ meets ‘High School of the Dead’ with a little bit of ‘When They Cry’ mixed in, it’s just all over the place. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to be able to make up its mind on what it actually wants to be. It starts out acting like a video game, sometimes a school life drama, and sometimes a military fighting show. I don’t really know if it actually had very much structure to it but well… let’s get on with the review and you can see what I... See full review
What happens when you mix retro games with anime school children? Well, in some ways, you show someone’s ideal childhood back when they were kids. Just kidding, this show isn’t really very ideal (not sure if anyone would really want to be in our main characters shoes most of the time), but it’s interesting to have that little nostalgia while also seeing a bit of a romance bloom. Now for those who don’t know, I have a passion for video games but not really a strong one in playing them. I’m a very casual gamer. The love I have for them is their graphics and story rather then... See full review
In a world saturated with slice of life anime, there has to be something special to make a show stand out. For this one, it’s the fact that everyone is a descendent of the four legged animals instead of our world that descended from the two legged one. Don’t ask me how this all works out, they don’t fully explain how and why most of them look very humanoid with just animal things tacked onto them, it just works out that way in the show.
There are a LOT of characters in this anime and although I would consider three (or four) of them as main characters, they are not always main... See full review
So before I get into this review, I do have to lay down another little disclaimer. Like almost all anime based on video games, I have not played Danganropa. I have seen people play it, though have not seen all of the game. With that, it means that I cannot fully say if this anime is the best representation of the game when it comes to the feel of you playing it, I can only base it on visualization and some of the storyline. When it comes to the characters, I am not going to go through all of them. Seriously, 16 characters including Monokuma are way too many to have to pick apart and talk about. Not to... See full review
There are a lot of different anime out there; most of them coming out now are generic slice of life anime. But every once in a while, we get an anime that fascinates me, makes me think, and has some rather interesting art styles to accompany it. Today, that anime is 18if. Now, I don’t know much about this anime’s origin. In the credits at the very beginning, it talks about a game that I never played let alone heard of but the wiki called it ’18: Kimi to Tsunagaru Puzzle’. Now since I never knew the game, nor seen it, I cannot say this show is strongly or loosely based on that game... See full review
Did you ever have thoughts of wanting to get revenge on the bullies you had in school? What if you planned what you were going to do since you were a very little child, working overly hard to become a very popular handsome/beautiful person to where the other person wouldn’t recognize you? This is sort of the premise of this show and I have to say that I am a little disappointed. With how short the show is, we are barely given any information on what exactly happened to make our main character, Masamune, want to seek revenge outside the idea that she called him a ‘Pig’s Foot’ because...

This anime was pretty much love triangle three folded. The basic story of a guy falling in love with a girl and that girl’s friend having a crush on his friend. Are you confused already? Ya, that’s pretty much how this anime is. The story is predictable, at least in terms of point A to B. The trip in getting to point B though is what was so enjoyable about this show. They had times where they had typical episodes other slice of life romance shows have; the occasional swimsuit, the misunderstandings between characters, the Christmas and valentines day episodes, and then there were times where...

So, what do you get when you mix a Maid and a Dragon together? I guess we get an anime like this. I do have to admit, I did not have high hopes for this anime when I saw very large titted maids who were supposed to be dragons. I was about ready for it to be overly fan service with not much story. I was slightly right, but the story I got actually was a really cute one. It’s much more of a slice of life with the dragons trying to interpret our human ways.
Our main character is Kobayashi, a human woman who works hard and is a bit antisocial. After a very annoying day at work, she got drunk and... See full review
So I ran into a bit of a problem after watching this show… figuring out how the hell I was going to write this review. The show does not make that easy at all as I really don’t know exactly what I thought of it. Sure the story line and characters were pretty fun and entertaining, but then the artwork and the script seemed rather dated to a point that it didn’t appeal to me. I guess I should just start breaking it down and see what my end result of this review will be.
Let’s talk about Kumiko first. Under the cute, good-hearted woman is that of a true Yakuza boss. The whole... See full review
Warning, this is a highly graphic show. There is a large amount of Nudity, Gore, Blood, violence, and body parts being ripped off. If you are squeamish, this is not the show for you.
The story is actually extremely hard to understand and as of now, I have not read the Manga. If things are explained more in the Manga, then that’s fine but they should of also been explained in the show as well. At first, we follow a young girl named Lucy as she escapes from what looks to be a military base or some sort of lab. She kills everyone around her until finally being shot once and escaping. When she... See full review
So… I have to start by saying this is one of the most confusing movies I have seen in a while, but also very well done. The reason why it’s confusing may be because it went though about eight different adaptations. ‘Nerawareta Gakuen’ was a science fiction novel written by Taku Mayumura in 1973. It became a television drama in 1977, 1982, 1987, and 1997 with two live action films done in 1981 and 1997. The one I am talking about now is the 2012 animated film version which came out around the same time as the manga. There is one small problem here in my tackling this animation, I... See full review
So this was a very short little movie about a sword for hire and his interesting adventure with a small Kitsune. The story is very simple, wealthy family gets attacked by pirates for an item they have and one of the children is taken away, only wanting to get the item back and get a little revenge for what had happened. Along the way, he hires a sword for hire to help him. The reason I didn’t start out with the sword for hire, Buta, was because the show doesn’t start out with him and yet both characters seem to take on the feeling of what a main character is supposed to be for different reasons...

Do you guys remember when I reviewed the show ‘Sleeping with Hinako’ at all? Well, this is pretty much the male version to that show. I’m not saying its bad at all; this one just seems to have more class involved. The show shows a new character each episode and a different stereotype doing different things. The first episode is a cute boy lying with you in bed, and then the next show is a coworker sitting in the same car as you after you drank too much and so on. It’s like it is catering to a large variety of people, not just one age range. In one episode even, they have a high... See full review
So this actually confused me as I had watched an anime of this name before and was rather off put by it. For those that didn’t read my review of Colorful (The anime), let me give you a word that described it… Perverted. The whole anime was about guys trying to see women’s bodies and just being complete creeps about it. The artwork was not that great and just made the characters look even creepier with the jagged lines and sort of spots of color. As with that, I thought that the movie was going to be the exact same way. Boy was I wrong; in fact this show was absolutely nothing like that... See full review
So listen, I had a really hard time trying to start this review… partly because this show isn’t a normal Zombie show and partly because so many people have reviewed it before me and given it the review of ‘what the hell was it?’. Even the way they show off a zombie is not typical; nothing like ‘High School of the Dead’ or ‘Walking Dead’. The zombies in this show… or should I just say Zombie as there is really only one… doesn’t eat brains, go on a rampage, or try to kill everyone around him. How is that a good show? Well… like I...

This is one of those shows that is really hard to talk about, especially when I talk about the dub. I normally like when the dub is at least close to the original storyline and anyone who has heard of this show would know that it isn’t the case here. There are three different versions as I have heard about this show; the Sub of course, and then two different dubs even if I have only been able to see one. The dub that I’m going to be talking about is the ADV version and not the rumored Animax version. Most of the character personalities and such will be from the dub as well.

What do you get when you take a vampire monster show and make a love story about it? You get something that is exactly like Twilight. At least, close to it in a sense but with more sexual stuff it seems. I am not going to lie, this show is extremely ecchi with its use of panty shots. Those who are like me might wonder just what this show has besides that and I actually wonder that myself. From the personalities to the ecchi, it just seems like another school life show.
We start out with a character named Tsukune Aono who is pretty much a average human… actually should I consider him below... See full review
So, the name of this show was Kamisama Dolls, so I thought it would be light hearted like how Kamisama Kiss was. Boy was I wrong and looking back on it now; I’m not sure why I thought it was like that. We started out with a really haunting depiction of a chase scene that had a large monster going after what I thought to be three children. It was surprising but also a little intriguing in the sort of morbid way. Then again, after the title screen we were into a bar with people drinking. These sorts of jumps just make me wonder what I got myself into.
Our main character, Kyouhei Kuga (Generic... See full review
Oh god, this show is for real, isn’t it? Welp, this is going to be an interesting review. It’s about an alien girl that crashed into a house, almost killed the person, then gave the person half their soul to save him. She also crashed right in the middle of the bathhouse, separating the men’s and the women’s side. You would think that with that much accuracy, she could of landed fine instead of crashing.
What is with aliens not knowing how to land and crashing into buildings? Seriously, does no one know how to land a spaceship? It happens almost all the time during the show... See full review
You see the words Magical Girl in the key words and what is your main thought? Maybe something like Sailor Moon where you have a 10 minute transformation scene, or maybe even Card Capture Sakura where she runs around trying to capture all the spirits of the cards. Well, this show is a little bit different (although there are transformation scenes). Instead, we have a girl who grew up in a pretty normal household. Sure her father found her in the woods but he treats her exactly how someone would treat a real daughter. He fusses over her, tries hard to have her wear pretty clothing, and makes amazing meals...

Halloween is coming up (Or already passed depending on when I finally get this review done) and so what better way to get the chills is to watch a show about corpses coming to life and killing people, right? What I didn’t know about this was that there was a whole bunch more to this show that meets the eye. It brought some questions I never thought I would have to ask myself. So when we get into the characters, Kagami is our ‘main character’ of sorts. I call him a main character even though most that I read has had Makina as the main character. Anyway, Kagami has a rather strange... See full review
Going into this show, I thought it was going to be much like Samurai Champloo with rap and hip hop during the Edo period of time. I was definitely mistaken by that idea as this seems to be set in a post apocalyptic world where both technology and samurai values are intermixed. This follows a black samurai as he seeks revenge for his father’s murder. Sadly, there is a lot of stereotypical depictions of black people as almost all of them have Afros and and the ninja that follows him talks in a rather gangster style. I feel rather odd watching this seeing as how it should be feudal Japan in look and... See full review
I am not exactly sure when this series actually ends up starting as there are many characters from Traumend but yet there is also a lot more information about the Alice Game that Jun doesn’t seem to know at the end of the series. There is also a lot of information on Suigintou.
Because of the fact that most of the story revolves in a different era then the rest of the series, it makes it so the animation is a lot different as well. I believe the story is actually in Europe as well meaning a different look to the backgrounds. The personality of the only few human characters we see also show... See full review
