Patalliro!

Jul 21, 2023

People who like vintage niche shit are going to enjoy this. Most are here for Banco and Maraich so let me toss in my penny: They're the first ('unironic' feels important to put here) queer couple to be represented on live television in an anime if I have my facts correct. Also note that this isn't BL or yaoi or whatever you want to label it, because the story is indifferent to the fact that they're gay. They just exist. Surprisingly progressive for something airing at that time which I didn't expect, I kind of came into this show just wanting to watch some corny and aged gay romance but came out feeling...

Junjou Romantica

i feel like this is required viewing for new/young bl fans. it's like going to yaoi school or something. you won't enjoy it and you'll be yearning for it to be over but it's good to learn about the foundations of your culture. (this is satire)

Antique Bakery

Feb 20, 2023

I think it was quite cute, although a little dramatic sometimes--the underlying story with Tachibana is pretty out there for a baking anime. Bakery to solve this epic MURDER MYSTERY TRAUMA that he was tied into...With the show's general theme you kind of forget that situation is happening until they shove it in your face with flashbacks. Ignoring that, it's just a fun slice-of-life-workplace type comedy. I think the humor and atmosphere of the show will drown out any distaste you have for the art. Also, what a sick OP. The stop motion style with character cutouts almost like they're part of a pop-up... See full review

Blue Period.

Jan 16, 2023

Maybe my view on this is a little different since I'm an artist, also not a critic, also a Polack who watched this in Polish dub and had an AMAZING time with it. This anime covers a lot of the doubt, hard work and joy that comes along with wanting to go into art professionally. A lot of artists I know who watched this told me it re-ignited the spark for their work, so I gave it a shot. It worked. If you draw, you will see yourself in this and you'll absolutely love it. In summary it's just a heartfelt coming of age but for artists. For being a short show, this is extremely accessible and I hope it is your... See full review

Gugure! Kokkuri-san

Jan 16, 2023

The pedo jokes were horrible and I would never call it "poorly aged humor" like everyone else who vouches for this show because... That isn't humor you should be having in the first place? I wish violent deaths upon the 3 characters that act gross like that but I guess that was the target audience for this  ¯\_(   )_/¯ GAG.

The rest of the jokes land funny though. Kokkuri, Kohina and Shigaraki are very fun characters, I'd kill for a spinoff of just those three. Kokkuri's gender dysphoria episode was not something I saw coming but I had a good... See full review

Eternal Boys

Dec 24, 2022

We like to bully our favorite anime men. If you and your friends are like that too, watch this.

Eternal Boys is the funniest thing I've ever laid my eyes on--and by that I do mean it in an "I love this" way, but the pacing is so hilariously BAD. Me and my friend watched all the episodes currently out together and it was just WHIPLASH TWIST AFTER WHIPLASH TWIST AFTER HILARIOUSLY PREDICTABLE OUTCOME. Also they popped their pussies at the local Publix. Yes. There is an episode where they perform at a grocery store. Like... It doesn't really feel like there's any sort of... See full review

Brigadoon

Jan 19, 2022

This show is so fucking weird but if you push aside the weird and the uncomfortable... (skip episode 21 for the love of god) it's honestly S tier. I don't know how something can age like wine and milk at the same time but this somehow did it. Great character design though, love those sword freaks. Small review, bad one, but others sum it up better than I ever could since it's been a hot minute since my last watch, so I'll spare repeating what everyone else has said.
