BELLE

it just... tries to do FAR too much. the story tries to do do coming of age, meditation on indentity, domestic abuse, romance, overcoming trauma, a gratitous beauty and the beast side plot, beauty standards, cyber bullying, and lonliness all in one movie and its simply too much. the plot is messy and doesnt come together very well because there are just too many elements. this would have made a nice series if they had time to flesh everything out Because the film is trying to do so much in a short time span, theres barely any time to really dig into anything and I found the characters hard...

Ajin: Demi-Human

There's a lot of discourse about this anime, but personally, I liked it.  The storyline is believable and the villians are amazing. I really like the main character and his relationships with his friends. I loved the bond between Kei and Kaito, old childhood friends brought back together by crisis, even though Kei is a bit of an asshole for not breaking Kaito out of prison. The action is really good as well.
