A lot of people may like this kind of stories, I do too when its implemented properly, with a good train of thought and a decent amount of chapters, which was not the case on this story by any plausible means. This author was either rushed by the publisher to release content no matter the low quality or the anime production company put too much pressure on a "good idea" that had no "real clear direction defined" while not yet finished or even started to begin with. Story (1/10) The concept of this story is really good in my humble opinion but was implemented poorly, as said above... See full review

The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.

Feb 21, 2019

For me this was a great time. I loved the characters and different personalities. I got good laughs and enjoyed it for how silly it was meant to be at times. Shun was my favorite character. Some parts kind of didn't matter to me so i zipped past those minutes, but that didn't take away from the overall experience. I'm usually into more serious story driven anime so this one caught me off guard at how enjoyable it was.

Tokyo Ghoul:re 2nd Season

zanahara's avatar
Feb 21, 2019

The third season of Tokyo Ghoul is a season that should have had a bit more planning. While the world itself is so vast and interesting they lacked in many places on trying to convey that. Each episode left you with more questions. You are transitioned somewhat seamlessly into the 2nd season of :Re however you are left confused and wanting more. It did not make me sit on the edge of my seat like the first season nor even held my interest as much as the second season. This one was by far the worst and disappointing. While the world was vast and held so many possibilities it's execution was extremely lacking... See full review

How does destiny factor into the life of a young girl? The answer will not be spoon-feed to you. It may have everything to do with the choices she's made or she may be the master of her own actions. What drives people to do the things they do? attend school, have faith, get married, ponder about their place in life, keep moving forward, doubt themself, make friends, spread religion by example... This music video follows a young girl as she wonders about these things, as she studies, interacts with friends, pets a cat, stands in the rain, There is a story to tell and the music moves along with...

Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches

jimpaly's avatar
Feb 20, 2019

No spoilers! Yay! OVERALL Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches has an original and simple story. Looking at the cover art, I assumed it was going to be a harem, with 7 witches chasing after Yamada. But most of them have only one episode talking about them, and they disappear from the story after that. Also, looking at the synopsis, I thought this would just be another body-swapping story, but that is only 1% of the whole story. I don't want to spoil too much, so I'll just say that there's a lot more to the anime. STORY 1st 3 episodes: about Shiraishi. After that, each 1 or 2 episodes is about a new... See full review

spoiler alert In my opinion its a very cute anime, but if you don't like romantic stuff
then you should watch another anime xD
The reason why I started this anime was because I always heard
that it should be like "Akatsuki no Yona" (this is btw my fav. anime of all time)

and well it has some similarities to it..
but I really wanted to know more about the back story of the characters
like where are the parents of the main characters and stuff.. 

but overall it's a cute anime with some cute characters x3

College student meets and falls in "love" with her younger sister's friend. Okay. So, this was made by the same studio that released UzaMaid a year ago, and it does show. For starters, I don't have much issue with the main plot namely because it's a show. It doesn't mean that it's suggesting that actual cases of pedophilia are funny. The show makes it clear that there is an inherent creepiness towards that concept, and it never gets to the same extent that UzaMaid did when it used Lolita as its main schtick. With that out of the way, what do I think of the show? Let's start with the... See full review

Feb 20, 2019

The second season of Tokyo Ghoul has is a very fast paced anime that focuses on the main character of Haise who is the leader of the Qs squad which is a half breed collection of teenagers who fight off the enemy; ghouls. The anime itself is incredibly fast paced and lacking in many places, while the first season seemed more like a full set this seems to feel rather empty. It's missing some star qualities in it's story that should have been addressed. If they took it slower instead of trying to rush through the whole arc then perhaps it would have been better. Instead they rushed it through what seems to be... See full review

Tokyo Ghoul season one is a uniquely strange rollercoaster that makes you hang on to your seat. It is a new spin on a mix of zombies, and vampires themselves in what is called ghouls. They are zombie like creatures only in the fact that they feed off of the flesh of humans and any other food they eat makes them sick. Vampires as in they keep their sanity about them and thirst for the blood of humans and ghouls alike. However, if you feat upon the flesh of a ghoul you receive serious repercussions. The anime focuses on Ken Kaneki who is an average college school student who ends up going on a date with a... See full review

I love this movie sooooo much! I love the messages that are embeded into the story. This movie has plenty of action and amazing characters. i love how in this movie there is no true villain. Everyone has good and evil within them. I love how in this movie it conveys the corruption of hatred. There are two big themes in this and one of them enforces the other. In this movie there is the theme of deforestation. The humans during this time period are going through an Iron Age, and they are destroying the forest to mine for iron.

This show is REALLY fresh, as I just finished watching it, and I am truly angry with this show. Never before have I thought a show could reach this level of trash (again), but I was proven wrong and currently rank it directly above School Days. Yeah, it had lots of sex and violence, but I couldn't care less; that's not my problem. If I wanted a gory show that was good, I'd watch Parasyte. If I wanted sex, go watch hentai for goodness sake. If you want a show with similar feels and messages, watch Shiki which is actually GOOD. And if you want Devilman, THEN READ THE MANGA. Haven't read it myself, but... See full review

I managed to watch this anime in about 2-3 days which is a triumph for me since I don't watch anime as often as I use to. The anime is a lovely nod to the extreme of paranormal and spirits which is quite lovely. There is no real plot other than the group going to help people who are haunted or possessed. There is only minor character development which made me a bit sad but their personalities are what made them who they are. You have the grumpy naru and the quite loud and caring Mai who can be quite annoying at times. However, despite her being annoying at times I couldn't stop watching. Each case was... See full review

Besides that it's a beautiful done anime that kept me wanting to watch and thinking about it when I couldn't.  The animation is beautiful other than the small things which every anime has. At one moment a hand looked way smaller than it should, that made me pause to giggle but it's hard to do things like that so I am still respectful since even if the hand was smaller than it should they fixed it in the next shot and it...

Being a person who played the game I knew the plot already but it still made me feel at times like I was playing the game. Sometimes I was leaning forward wanting to hit the action points to break holes in peoples accusations then quickly realized that I was watching the anime, not playing the game. If you haven't played the game then I think you would enjoy it a lot more going into it with a fresh mind. However, those who have played the game understand it more and get to enjoy the anime in a way others won't. The plot will keep you guessing though some parts might be a tad predictable.

This anime is short, sweet, and heartbreaking. Sure, the plot has a lot of holes and things weren't really fleshed out as much as it should have been but that's not what keeps you watching. The main character is shy, awkward and at times a bit annoying. However, she's also relatable if you have similar issues with anxiety and shyness as she does. She doesn't realize how brightly she shines simply because she's always putting herself in shadows of her friends. Everyone has their own unique personality and they all fit together almost perfectly. The story is typical, the plot is a bit one dimensional but it... See full review

Bleach is a great long anime for anybody who would like to start watching longer series. This anime is my all time favourite and it has forged many of my friendships today. The best thing about Bleach is the bond between all the characters and also of course the fight scenes. Ichigo, the main character, has tought me a lot about what it takes to protect the ones you love. The characters in this show feel more real than animated which in my opinion, is it's best quality. These are characters with real problems (excluding hollows and what not), that is why many can be drawn away from Bleach because the... See full review

Man, the opportunities for a true love story/love triangle really fell through the cracks on this one. Where to begin... First off, I feel like the story began too quickly. It's as if they skipped an episode or two and started on episode 3 as episode 1. The characters are very different from one another which is nice. They did not make this show with the idea of some raunchy lesbian fanservice to the audience. All of the scenes with intimacy felt authentic and true to the characters. That is one of the best aspects of the show, easily. However, even though the characters are quite mature for their age... See full review

This anime is a great psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat and leaves your nails a jagged mess from biting them in anxiety. Without giving away important parts of the story, as I feel it's better to go into this anime without knowing much or anything at all, the first episode appears to seem like a normal story about orphans living their lives in an orphanage with no real obstacle in life than lacking parents. However, it very quickly turns into a horrific situation and left me, who is rarely surprised by the stories in anime, incredibly surprised and feeling a sense of, "Oh... See full review

Seeing as the series is only halfway through, this review could be premature. However, I've thoroughly enjoyed the six episodes of this series. The characters aren't stiff or cliche.

The narration attributes to the story in a way that isn't monotonous, unnecessary, or irritating.

As a result, all fights and friendships are set in stone based on the past events, allowing characters to determine the outcome of fights long before anyone has even rolled their sleeves up.

After watching the movie, I can see why it has been nominated for a bunch of awards. The ending is a bit confusing, and kind of disappointing because you want to know how things worked, and what the hell happened. (SPOILER) You're left wondering if the ball reverted everything back to how it was before finding it or if they just gave into the innevidible and went on their original path after it blew up. But I mean, its a sad ending either way, but could have been way sadder with better character builds and animation. Which is strange for an anime movie...

I only got to episode 3, and I was bored out of my mind by that time. I wasn't sure why it seemed more like a strange walkthrough of a video game, until I read that it was based on a video game shortly after episode 2. It all made sense. You totally feel like you're watching someone play a video game. I really dislike how the main character just loses all of her emotions after episode 1. Doesn't seem like its her character to do that under those circumstances (trying to be as vague as I can here to not spoil anything). It's just really boring, and feels forced.

The story doesn't exactly go anywhere, and I was disappointed about that. It's pretty flat the whole time, and I found the manager annoying to the point I wanted to just mute or skip through the scene until he was gone. I probably wouldn't be too picky about the show if it was moving along, but it didn't. Also, it does take some getting used to if you're watching the dub, since all the singing/rapping is done in japanese and isn't translated, so all the voices change. Mind you the songs themselves are pretty alright, and are enjoyable. However, the 3D animation during the dance scenes are really out of... See full review

Yes, this is one of the strange 3D CGI shows, but trust me, after a few episodes you get into it and it's good. After a while you begin to really enjoy the animation actually, the facial animation is still drawn, and not strangely 3D built. The story is unique, and in terms of the sound, the music and sound effects are really good. Even though there isn't a second season to be released, I believe this is a series that needs it. There are some big characters that should have gotten more time to shine, and be understood. This is an anime that could defintely have several seasons... See full review

This show is a really emotional one, and in the best way. Definite tear jerker, and is a beautiful story (including a beautiful ending). Every episode you get a bit more pulled in, and the build up doesn't disappoint. You need a good cry? Binge this show. Fantastic series! My only gripe with the show is the following: (SPOILER DO NOT READ AHEAD) The way letters get into the past is a real stretch, and I find it to be a sort of lazy way to make sense of it all. I would have been more satisfied if they made the "future" them more "future-y" and had some sort of technology to do so. But... See full review

The series begins slow, but once you're in you don't want to stop. BEAUTIFULLY animated. I was expecting an emotional story just based on the background of the main character, but I absolutely cried like a little girl with my girlfriend watching it. Some of the episodes were so sad, I had never felt so emotionally distraught over a show before. The ending was a bit of a cliffhanger, but I know they did that on purpose so people can come up with their own conclusions. Great anime, once you get into the meat and potatoes of the show.

One of the greatest series I've ever seen. Not going to ruin it with spoilers, so I'll keep it brief; visually fantastic, and it actually gives you a sort of Lord of the Rings type of journey. When I began the story I didn't know what to expect, and was amazed at the emotion and relationship that grows throughout the series. I can't wait until more movies/seaons are released.

I watched the dubbed version of this, and you're left confused by the accents. Two of the characters are supposed to be foreign, so they have accents when speaking english, except their accents are from different places (one from Germany, the other from Russia), but they're from the same place. Other than that, you can sort of see things coming, and nothing was a surprise. There's also a few arc's that go no where. Nothing comes to a conclusion. The ending could have been dragged out a bit longer for emotional effect... Thankfully it was a happy ending. Just not that great of a series.

Quite a sweet story, unfortunately there were a few points that brought it down for me. First was the lack of dialogue. I found the series to feel slow at times due to this. I believe there could have a lot more emotion in the story, especially with the friends. Would I watch it again? Not on my own. But I'm not opposed to watching it with someone who hasn't.
