Ya Boy Kongming!

TKBK's avatar
Oct 2, 2022

Ya Boy Kongming or Paripi Komei, which translates to Kongming of the Party People, is an anime based on the manga of Ryo Ogawa. The premise is a sort of reverse isekai, where a famous Chinese strategist from the  Three Kingdoms era gets reincarnated into our modern age. Initially he thinks he ended up in hell, since the very day of his reincarnation was on Halloween, and he got transported to Shibuya. So, a bit too loud and wild for a guy from the 3<sup>rd</sup> century. And in the case that you wondered, yes of course, he reincarnates as a bishonen young guy. A young musician by the name...

Armitage III

DeathBecomesDavid's avatar
Oct 2, 2022

When I think of cyberpunk OVAs I think gaudy style, sex, and violence matched with halfhearted exposition and nary a scene wasted on trivial things like character or theme. For these and other dull observations, most of this catalog is either forgettable (Metal Skin Panic, Appleseed) or entertaining in the flimsy ways Roger Corman films are (Goku: Midnight Eye, Black Magic M66). This is all to say, you go into these with measured expectations and, given the short length of the format, the confidence that you won’t waste too much time. Armitage III has an unusual reputation thanks to being re-edited... See full review

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

molopower's avatar
Oct 2, 2022

Ultimately Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is fine. But when considered the best anime of all time, a masterpiece, it doesn't hold up. It's a complete slog to get through, you could easily shave off at least twenty episodes and you'd be all the better for it. Fullmetal's greatest strength is its characters, yet its villains are some of the worst from animes I've watched. Pathetic, ugly-looking bastards that die way too quickly and have shallow motivations. I never really wanted to continue watching this show, I was never enthralled, and the plot never compelled me. And for the part it looks okay, it did... See full review

Out of all the animes I have ever watched, I have never watched one more like a reality tv show other than this. This is by far the most unhinged anime I have ever watched and actually don't know what to expect which is actually crazy because one minute this show is predictable and the next, it isn't. This is probably one of the most intriguing weird romance harem shows you will ever watch and this just gets more insane. Dude is an absolute menace to society but it seems like it's getting better towards the end after the incident. I will not lie that I disliked some of the characters do to their actions...

Sasaki and Miyano

AceOfSpades78's avatar
Oct 1, 2022

Romance anime has been in a bit of a lull lately. Wokotai and Horimiya being exceptions, but typically romance anime hasn't been hitting the same as the early 2000s classics. Sasaki and Miyano bring back all the same feelings as watching the classics for the first time. It is BL so if you don't like that you might not like it and it is slow-paced, but I think the pace perfectly fit the characters. 10/10 I highly recommend if you want to feel warm and fuzzy while also embarrassed for these characters.

Classroom of the Elite 2nd Season

StevenSAKUJO's avatar
Oct 1, 2022

Story: [7/10] Classroom of the Elite's story is by no means something to be taken seriously, the premise is entirely absurd. These children of wealthy families are pretty much left to their own devices, to play some ridiculous games, and somehow they're supposed to learn how to be ruthless business leaders through this. It's the same as Kakegurui, the show doesn't take itself seriously, we know the protagonist is going to slay and we're just here to enjoy the show. Despite how the show portrays itself as a battle of wits, it is rarely the case that any problem is actually overcome by someone making galaxy... See full review

I was surprised to learn this was an original work, because the way it's animated it feels like it was based on or is a preview for a webtoon. The episodes are so short that essentially nothing happens. The animation is clunky (especially with character movement). And the sound effects/voice acting is particularly bad. If you're interested, you may as well watch it since it's so short, but prepare to be disappointed.

How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom

it was enjoyable, and the women werent overly obsessed with the MC, since i saw most sites saying it was a Harem.. Its like other Isekai animes but it was still different, maybe in a bad way, maybe in a good way.. The animation and sounds were average along with the characters, I dont really get the other low rating reviews since it was fun watching, would recommend but there isnt much to be obsessed with.. im a bit surprised theres a second season, still gonna watch it lol

Riddle Story of Devil was a nice watch. A girl has to survive numerous assassination attempts from her classmates. Luckily for her, she gained a companion and we get to see their relationship bloom. (Along with hints of yuri) Story: The story was pretty straight (hah, straight, totally) forward. Each episode featured an assassin and their different ways of assassination. The story was easy to understand for the majority of the anime. The story changed and became a bit more confusing during the last couple of episodes.  Animation: I thought the animation was alright. Nothing bad, nothing... See full review

Not a fan of the anime. Idk why the MC was so desperate to fit in with the other girls that she decided to become  a dog of  Kyouya. Honestly I cringed the entire time I was watching the show. Like Erika there lods of guys out there ready to mingle with ya. I was told that this is very good show but honestly the first few episodes were enough for me to know that this is cringy as heck.

This was a good side story.  Not as much action as the main series, but the comedy is there.  It kinda seems to be slight continuations of episodes during late season 1 and early season 2.  If you like the main you will probably like this one too.

okay so finally another season ends and im not suire if its on par or much worse than laster season i looked back on the older reviews to see how this one stacks up and it depends on if you like the above ground wanabe politics or the glorified spelunking in the dungeon. becasue frankly the animation,sound, and characters are the same as the 3rd season and the story isnt exactly a story its just a "hey lets all go to the nether today" kind of ordeal(im still not sure if ill continue the minecraft bit). that being said it is already confirmed another at least 10 episodes this winter...

Summer Time Rendering

oh boy! this is a good one, with stunning animation, amazing characters, and a story that actually invests into a ending makes summer time rendering by far one of the best shows this year, although there isnt much stiff competition. That being said its 25 episodes so give it 4-6 epsidoes if you hate the rezero/groundhog style premise or the characters then drop it, not too much changes from those two, but if you decide to stick with it then im sure you'll enjoy the wild ride. now for those still unsure heres a more detailed spoiler free review  starting with the animation which is pretty much perfect...

Recently, I've not been really keen to see manga adaptation hit the screen, mainly because a lot of the shows feel soulless. And with the manga having such a unique style, I had my doubts. Then the first trailer got released, and it actually showed a lot of promise. A show that looks really promising, but you don't want the expectations to be too high, because you feel that it could only end up as a massive disappointment. And, how was it? The team delivered an amazing product. Tomoyuki Itamura used that Studio Shaft flare, that we have seen him use in the Monogatari series, in combination with an... See full review

Yeah, I don't know how to feel about this. I guess I understand what the anime was going for (?), but the overall story is just messy and not it. Especially the ending, I think it could've gone in a much better direction than this, and in my opinion it still left many things unsolved and unfinished. I watched it an thought: "Really? We're going with this? Everything else is just fine now I guess? Ok, and that's the end now.... Wow"
Somehow it's as if the anime missed it's own point. I don't really mind the characters design and theme, but their backstories are a bit unclear... Which would be... See full review

This was a great adaptation from the novel this was based off of. It shows that someone who is willing to learn from their mistakes is able to move on and be happy. They found a way to show subtle hints of the characters getting together by the end of the story. The characters was adapted very well, great animation and design. One thing I hope they do is to adapt what they can of the extra chapters.

Story is exactly the same, guy gets isekaied in another world, even though it’s not apparent he is completely overpowered, befriends a busted creature, then another one, the builds a city, then gathers different tribes in the city, starts an emporium and so...

Too much unnecessary talking.

The plot was somewhat interesting and the characters were not so bad, but after episode 3 this anime just went downhill and threw the whole plot out the window.  At the end of the third episode, the love interest tries to sexually asault the main character. This was disgusting, the love interest proceeded to touch him and undress him when he specifically told him to stop, the main character was very uncomfortable and so was I. I felt that it was...

I really loved this show, and eagerly waited this season. But I must say, that this season was a complete mess, like just some random things happening one after another.

Bell is indecisive as  ever, he didn't have any resolve just the usual hypocrisy. After this much time i'd think that if he can save many people with killing  an evil person he would do it, but instead he wouldn't. he'd just let them die then cry about... See full review

What's special about this anime is the Fashion Industry setting.

I'm not involved in the fashion industry, nor do I know much about it, and the last thing I saw related to fashion was The Devil Wears Prada from 2006; so I'm not sure how accurate is this for the current state of the industry, but it seems absurd for...

Call of the Night was a very different anime from a typical vampire troupe where each girl that meets the main character falls inlove him. Yes I am aware that the anime did show that some girls did liked him but some wanted to kill him too. This anime made me realise that going out at night is not scary at all and it's fun lol. Tho the sky is not purple with stars all over the sky it is just darkness. The opening is so fricken good. Really matched the asthetics of the anime.

OK, so let's start by saying that my review is heavily biased.  If you like that little mermaid girl, then this OVA will be right up your alley.  If you didn't like the mermaid girl as a character (like me), then this OVA is pure trash and you should avoid it.  In conclusion, I really like the actual show. However, this OVA is a waste of my time.

I'm not gonna give you some story about where I came from because truthfully I did not come from anywhere in particular. I am basing this review off of me: which has no prefence whatsoever and doesn't look at reviews and others opinions because I simply don't care. This review is based on how I enjoyed this anime because it was just really good. First of all, I do not understand why this anime is such lowely rated when I believe it is above a 4. This has a very great story with many plot twists and is all about war. This also has some similarities with characters with strong will power and are smart enough... See full review

Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva

Sep 30, 2022

I'm a big fan of the Layton series of games, and in my opinion Professor Layton is better experienced in video game format. This movie is fine, but I felt like it missed the mark a bit on the tone of the games, and the interactivity of the puzzles that they tried to add to the movie felt a little clunky. The bits of CG animation weren't badly done, but felt out of place. The story was just okay, a lot of the mysteries and puzzles felt a bit too simple. Antagonist and side characters also really weren't doing it for me. The music was probably my favorite part of the movie. You can watch this without... See full review

A lot of this season is about how much you value something, why you value it the way you do, what value means to others, why others may value things differently to you, and if those values can change over time. How far are you willing you go, for something that you value a lot. Reg, Riko and Nanachi make their way deeper down, into Abyss, where the creatures become are even more dangerous than those we've seen in the past. While our friends are resting, Riko's white whistle gets stolen and a strange drawing is left behind. Our friends set out to look for the white whistle, and come across a... See full review

Overall, it was a cute anime film.

I watched it with my boyfriend, and the character of Minato reminded me of him and our relationship.

The film's message is quite sweet, but it still made me sad; it did not have a particularly sad ending, but knowing how much I would struggle if my boyfriend was gone made me sad.
I understand that life isn't all puppies and rainbows, and this movie is focused toward mature romance, so I appreciate how realistic it was in that regard.

Go read the manga it was adapted from (well, there's a light novel too, but I haven't read it, so I'll pretend manga was the source material). So as you can perhaps infer from my opening remark, I first read the manga (which I enjoyed a lot), and then decided to see the adaptation since it came out. Well, it was okay in some aspects, but a big disappointment in some others. I really recommend the manga. The anime? Not really. I'll try to keep this review relatively short (you'll notice, but I'm bad at it, sorry) while giving a general summary. Story: 3/10 The plot is as unoriginal as it gets... See full review

This review is more of a quick summary of what the show is about and my thoughts on it. You can tell how much passion I have for the topics that Yofukashi no Uta handles, so I only hope that this will push others to see it in the same myriad lights I do or build upon it more meaningfully than I could (since its topics aren't exactly my forte). But here is my lite looking-into of Yofukashi no Uta, aka Call of the Night: As people exist, they are defined by the things they surround themselves with.

Story: [6/10] RWBY Ice Queendom would've been much better off as a movie or being substantially shorter than it is, the story could've been good in that format. Weiss is attacked by a Grim that puts her into a coma, the only way to save her is to enter into her dream and destroy the grim there, however, much like inception, Weiss' subconscious makes up the people in the dream and they fight against team RWBY as they try to save her. This could've been something like a RWBY-themed inception movie, but instead, it's a 13-episode series and the issue is that the story is too simple for that. So, even though I... See full review

This is far from being bad but can't really reach the good tier. As far as the story goes, if you are not braindead, it is not confusing at all and makes perfect sense, afterall, even if you didn't pay attention one of the characters will spill out everything to you little by little. That being said, even though the story is kinda of interesting (after all is layed out), what we are shown in this OVA are not those parts so it really does not grab your attention. The animation is average but the character design is well done. The characters are not likeable at all, you really don't care about any of them... See full review

Ok so why the hell is this not the main anime series? I have played the game atleast 6 times and i had fun every time but after seeing the anime i think that red should have been the protagonist of the Pokemon anime series because ash doesn't do it for me. The rivalry,the goal, the passion he shows are all better than ash. I really wish that they would actually make a whole series out of this because there were many things they cut out from the game. Overall, i really this short series and i would love to see the more of it with the same protagonist in the future.

This series is an underdog like its protagonist, which grew so much. The first season left in me impression of the series being rather typical underdog protagonist action series. You know the average shounen kind. The second season moved the MC from the underdog position, but overall didn’t impress me either. The third season introduced interesting dilemma for characters. It was a pleasant surprise. This season was to my unbelieving eyes even more enjoyable than the third. It has heavy focus on the adventures in the dungeon with lot of suspense, action and very dramatic fight moments. I think even... See full review

As a person who watched the previous version, I was very impressed with this remake of Tokyo Mew Mew. I'm not going to talk about the animation and character design, because we're talking about 20 years of difference, which has allowed an evolution in all aspects. Despite everything, the current design of the character Mint is much better than the previous, in my opinion.  However, I expected more characters to have a greater impact on the story, or at least appear more often. As for the story, I liked the fact that they kept it short: the girls meeting earlier, not putting certain stories in just... See full review

I really loved this anime because of its sweetness but i the one thing I don't like about this is that the author did a bad job at representating the yakuza. Like no yakuza is forgiving like the one here and the yakuza in real life are way scarier and brutal that was the main problem for me. further,the episodes were sometimes very fast paced for some reason but yeah it's a slice of life so i will let it slide. The animation is absolutely amazing but doesn't suit yakuza vibe. Well in my opinion watxh this if u wanna relax but don't expect much comedy and brutality from it.

I loved all the characters we met this season; they all had me cackling in every scene, especially Anya with her very exaggerated facial expressions. The soundtrack was exceptional and had me doing a silly little dance while they played. The story is simplistic but the characters and their wacky adventures throughout the show made it very delightful. This show... See full review

And I’m here, reviewing it, not to say it’s flawed but with potential, but that it’s good. It’s really good.

Despite the many uncomfortable scenes and topics of this anime, it deals with a very realistic side of social anxiety and loneliness while keeping it comedic.

Not to mention the character Tomoko's entire personality is one of the most relatable anime personalities I've come across, well to me personally that is. Sure, the premise of the anime may not be appealing to some, but if you're looking for a tale out of the ordinary list of everyday anime, pick this one up and it's a 50/50 chance of getting disappointed or enjoying the watch.

Certainly the critics agreed and the film was warmly greeted by them and audiences alike. “Sing a Bit of Harmony” is a story that blends Spielberg’s “ET” with Disney Princess musicals and an AI robot in an anime Highschool romance.

The problem is that the story ends abruptly and while everything is more or less solved, many new plots are introduced right at the end, clearly signaling for a part 2 that is nowhere to be seen, unfortunately.

My Isekai Life: I Gained a Second Character Class and Became the Strongest Sage in the World!

HueMoo's avatar
Sep 27, 2022

This is an anime with wasted potential. The plot is generic and it's easy to predict what will happen and it's super bland. The slimes, wolf and maybe the dryad are the best part and characters in this.  The MC is the worst part of it. We barely get any context at the beginning, but even then it's easy to tell he died of overworking himself. He is the most emotionless character I've even seen in my life. He has no reactions, and he doesn't seem excited or scared when discovering he is in another world. It doesn't help that there is practically no tension throughout. He is basically a robot. His...

I would know, I have a similar issue.     My one and only issue with the show is that they didn't show how to beat social phobia. It IS possible. If you do have extreme social anxiety, you CAN...

A-1 Pictures’s late-summer 2022 action comedy has enough guns’n’girls fun to keep the fans rolling in. It is an original work but it feels exploitative. (My wife & I have raised two girls through their teenage years and although young women are many amazing things one of them is not likely to be ninja-style super-soldiers. Yet here we are.) We found the idea that the “Lycoris” girls were all disguised in High School uniforms, so as to not arouse suspicion, to be hilarious. We mean, do the bad guys in this show not read manga?

A-1 Pictures Summer 2022 fantasy-action show proved to be a bit of a disappointment. The problem here is that the story is weak and the visuals appear to be driven by a desire to emulate the look and feel of the late 2021 production “Takt Op. Destiny “ by MAPPA/Madhouse. It is all here: the implacable alien demons being defeated by a tiny waif-like teenage High School girl who flies around in her impractical-looking dresses wielding stupendously over-sized weapons. The little battle doll with the super-human abilities is Kisara who is actually some kind of tame demon in a contract to work for a... See full review

Project No.9’s later summer 2022 rom-com explores (in a far more straightforward fashion) the idea familiar to us from Sentai Filmworks 2019 production of “Domestic Girlfriend”. This earlier work was a sophisticated and emotionally-wrought drama whereas “My Stepmom's Daughter Is My Ex” is an easy-going, formulaic, comedy. The show kicks off several months after Mizuto Irido and Yume Irido’s parents got married and they became step-siblings. They had dated a year before but it ended badly.

The animation and sound all do a great job although the music was better last seasons. But the primary focus is the story and characters. on the short side they both do agreat job fleshing out and progressing the story and the characters had enought time to develop and grow. and at the end of the season there was enough questions, intrigue, and conflict to want another season.  Out...

No spoilers for this season but it was really a letdown. I was excited to see more of the MC's genius plans and the ones we got were severely lacking. Some of the characters that we loved in the first season were only seen briefly and you would just forget about them. It became very boring to watch compared to the first season and there were only a few characters who I think developed at all. It just did not live up to my expectations and I am disappointed.

Yowamushi Pedal: Special Ride is one of those OVAs where you expect it to be pure ridiculous boring filler for the OVA - and, to a degree, this would be correct. It's a filler of Onoda and Makishima bonding - on Makishima’s decision. It leads to Onoda’s otaku ways almost turning Makishima off of him entirely and wanting to leave, only for the OVA to take us on a new journey across the bike training path. For an OVA, there isn’t really anything special about it - it’s the same basic premise. Some filler, some laughs, nothing that really aids the plot - it’s essentially... See full review

Easily the best old style anime I've ever watched.  If you wish to see a perfect sherlock holmes anime, then this is the perfect choice for you. All characters are interesting in everyway possible and all have great development. This is also much like DeathNote except the character is the book and does the killing on his own. K and Moriarty both have good intentions but you know... go about it the wrong way.  Amazing ending and I hope we get some aftermath series showing what else they decide to do after the ending.

When The Devil is a Part-timer came out back in 2013 a lot of people loved it because they had never seen a reverse isekai before.

For a decade many were constantly asking when is another season coming out, and were really excited when they finally heard it’s coming. They hyped the living hell out of this show before it came out. Then the first episode aired and the entire community forgot its existence. How is that possible when they were so hyped up about it?

I had considerable expectations for this series when I started watching it.  The whole kingdom building/management thing is to my taste. There was a lot of good word for the novel going around. I didn't feel like reading it, but I decided to give the anime version a try: if the novel is good, the anime can't be trashy (well, Arifureta kind of violated this rule, but that was mostly graphically, plus I don't acknowledge Arifureta past the first dungeon arc anyway). Well, what a surprise it was - that this acclaimed series turned out to be considerable garbage. To be exact, it's one of those series... See full review

The story’s main character is a Roman-bath architect Lucius Modestus who works in Rome around 130CE.

Studio Gaina & Studio Feel’s 2022 comedy-drama has quite an unusual flavour to it but it would be wise not to compare it to J C Staff’s “The Way of the Househusband” (2021). This is no irreverent zany comedy featuring a hilariously-domesticated ex-Yakuza. This is far more serious. This Yakuza (Tooru Kirishima) is the right-hand man to the boss (Kazuhiko Sakuragi). Kirishima has a reputation for being a bit of a homicidal psycho and has never been beaten in a fight.

Just own up to the fact that it's rap3. Other shows acknowledge it and that's fine. But pretending that groping your new slave is consensual? Cringe bro, just admit you're a sleaze taking advantage of the situation. It's not like the MC was likable anyways. So yeah lots of false advertising and inability to just own what it is.

Where the first part felt much more solid, standing on its own with a clear goal, this one feels like it is floating aimlessly.

This OVA is good? Yes, but... Unfortunately things are not so straighforward. Let's unravel this OVA. The story is based on a novel written in XIX century that took 98 chapters and 28 years to finish. What is the importance of this you ask? Well, the whole OVA (this and the sequel) is comprised of only 13 chapters... needless to say things are heavily abridged here. Add to this the fact that right of the bat the story floods you with many dates and names and (atleast for me) things only start to make a little sense by episode 4. What is more, the plot is rarely told in a sequential manner, there are many... See full review

And then finally the horrible ending came and I felt like I had wasted all my time.

In many regards, this anime is a double-edged sword. However, for someone like me who doesn't know cyberpunk games, it is a very interesting backstory and introduction to the cyberpunk world. The first 4 episodes are a great example of how to start a show to catch the viewer and make them curious. Within these episodes, the characters were introduced as quickly as possible and the world, the system, and already the first relationships were tied. Through a very well-balanced pacing and creative scene changes, you got the feeling as if this anime would flow into you. I would... See full review

I am somewhat of an artist myself, and i attend an art school. So i was able to completely feel the message the creators wanted to tell with every episode. And I love it. Also if you have nothing to do with art, i think, this anime can teach you a lot about drawing, painting and creating art. I recommend it so much if you are even a little bit curious about...

If you like cats and relaxing vibes, you'll certainly enjoy this.

I don't write reviews on anime easily, but I'm tired of this style, make a cute child character and kill him or make him suffer in the most cruel way, psychological drama and disturbing, those should be the labels. What to write at the beginning this season of this anime is under the title of adventure nothing to do with just the dismembered bodies of strangely shaped creatures that's all that comes to mind. <div id="gtx-trans" style="position: absolute; left: -10px; top: 46px;"> </div>

A Place Further Than the Universe

Sep 24, 2022

A Place Further that the Universe ... happens to be Antarctica.  Not to be taken in any respect with sci fi genre.  It is rather cute girls doing stuff again.  While Antarctica is relatively around the corner compared to something cosmically close as Proxima Centauri, the premise is the impossibility of a journey that is taken by four girls to a civilian operated research facility in the general neighborhood of the South Pole.  This and the rewards of the dare taken. The unique feature of A Place Further (grammar nerd moment:  shouldn't it be 'Farther'?) than the Universe is the... See full review

Tomodachi Game

Sep 24, 2022

After the plot twist that dropped in episode 5, it finally piqued my interest. From episode 1 to 4, the plot was predictable and cliche for the evarage viewers, so they needed something big to catch our attention. So they did, dropped a bomb in episode 5 to show us this Tomodachi Game isn't all about money and debt. They were aiming for something bigger. They being Tenji, and possibly Yuichi. The truth is I don't think Yuichi actually said the main reason for his goal; to destroy the Tomodachi Game company. There's more to his reasons and possibly being related to his past. Although for now, we know... See full review

We watch this show from the perspective of Innumael, a delivery worker who got caught up in a smuggling incident and has no choice but to aid criminals, as well as from the perspective of Leocadio, an Empire soldier. Their meeting sparks a quest of finding out the truth about mutant monsters spawning more frequently in the past years, as well as a mysterious disease caused by disasters of the past.

Well I certainly will miss Chisato every Saturday night thanks to her bubbly chillax attitude and wish I had a friend like her man! I really thought the interaction with her and Majima was interesting enough like you hardly see a “villain” and a “hero” taking a break because of Chisato pushing herself too much with her artificial heart. I also thought both Chisato and Takina’s teamwork relationship was unique. I know that some people are here for the Yuri and of course it’s cute girls with guns but I personally... See full review

Castlevania is a series based off of the Video Game franchise 'Castlevania', specifically 'Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse' (along with some elements from 'Castlevania: Symphony of the Night'). The series premiered on Netflix on July 7th, 2017 and is 4 episodes long, each being roughly 25 minutes. As of the time writing this review, there are 4 seasons. This is a review for Season 1. I've never played any of the Castlevania games before. My first introduction to the franchise was with the announcement of Simon and Richter Belmont in the video game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

In a nutshell, Clannad ~After Story~ influenced the way I will live for the rest of my life and not just in some half-assed way like any other show would. It legitimately moved me to make certain decisions, for better or for worse. In that sense, no other anime can compare, as no other anime has provided an equivalent reaction on my part.

Before you continue, you should know that Clannad ~After Story~ is a continuation of the story from Clannad and an adaptation from the original Visual Novel by KEY. Although... See full review

This show’s flaws are easily overlooked when it’s a CGDCT SoL show. Unfortunately, it is only that half the time. When it attempts to be a fast-paced action gunslinging anime, we see the cracks forming. This is especially so towards the end of the show. The biggest point of contention I’d imagine to be the quality of Chisato as a character and so I’ll focus on her. I argue that Chisato is more problematic than what she appears first glance. Her personality is quite a typical cheery, energetic, manic pixie dream girl, and she’s given substance through her moral code which she... See full review

Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop

Studio Sublimation/Signal.MD’s 2021 slice-of-life teen-romance owes much to Science Saru’s 2017 “Night is Short, Walk on Girl”. The two seem to be spiritually from the same place sharing a fixed colour palette and a certain sense of whimsy in the story. The two productions are unrelated and whereas Masaaki Uasa’s film was set at night “Words Bubble Up…” uses a bright daytime palette of primary colours with little or no shading. This lack of subtlety in the visual style may not be to everyone’s taste but the audience is quickly wrapped up in the warmth... See full review

The story is very typical battle shonen, and while it's easy to tell what it's trying to do, I think it still does it very well. Yes, similar things have been done before, but here they are in a more distilled, potent way. Even if you can see where it's going, it'll still hit you when it gets there; at least it... See full review

This was one of the few short titles for this season and I figured that I would watch it for the extra title for this season's challenge.

It was okay. It's a short show between a new cat owner and the cute things cats do. The common issue I have with short stories is that it's difficult to really enjoy. The sound and situation had some cute funny moments-- many that I can relate to as a cat owner. It just isn't worthwhile to watch again if I was given the option to. If you're looking for a cute show, then this isn't bad. Just know that it's not the best, but I know that that's ok for a lot of... See full review

Imagine your average trahs romance, just replace it with POWER OF FRIENDSHIP, you know, friends are the only way out, you can do anything for them! You get stronger if they are killed and similar shit. Basically that's the movie. Motivational trash. Literally if it wasn't for the animation nobody would ever give it a high score. Animation rally is good. I guess there is some compilation of fighting scenes - the ones that you watch the movie for.

I'll try to keep this as spoiler free as possible. I have some mixed feeling on this one. I enjoyed the first season very much, the exploring of the layers, some unreachable mystery and some tough moments. Nanachi's character arc was also very well done. Then comes this season. The feeling of progressing down the abyss has halted completely, there's a lot of action and for some reason it feels like they have jumped the shark a bit. There were some episodes I thought, "what the heck did I just watch", which also led to me not really caring about the characters as much, specifically the new ones... See full review

WIT Studio’s 2022 dark and bloody supernatural drama borrows from previous vampire tales yet still manages to make something watchable. The key trick in its success is setting the action in Russia rather than Japan which gives it a fresh feel. This dark fantasy also seems unstuck from history as it initially looks like it is set in the 1940s or 50s yet, as the story progresses, technologies and cultural influences from more contemporary times kick in. This makes the world it portrays a little disorientating. The story itself is straightforward: the world has been over-run by vampires and a continuous... See full review

So to start off this is based off a mobile game. Anime like that tend to be bad because the main purpose is to advertise the game. The story is mainly focused on 5  charaters and their daily life at a magic academy. Throughout the anime they don't fight with magic so do not expect action cause you will be disappoointed. Their are parts with a little action but that is more like a preview of the antagonists in the game (they do not fight against the main charaters in the anime). The animation is nice and more or less stopped me for dropping it. The charater design is by the same person who made rezero... See full review

This film is unquestionably a masterpiece. To myself, it's a film about self-discovery, mental wellbeing, and suppressed feelings, with the added bonus of showing compassion for other people because you understand what it is they're going through. Belatedly, you realize your identity has always been there; sometimes it takes witnessing other people's similar experiences to help you understand your own.

In their world some robots toil in the fields whilst others live in three enormous city-sized cubes called “Eden” 1, 2 & 3. The environment is now clean and agriculture is thriving yet humanity has not returned. The robots have been told that humanity was evil and that the world they... See full review

Bubble

Sep 22, 2022

WIT Studio’s 2022 sci fi fantasy has more than a hint of Makoto Shinkai about it and is heavy with Tokyo-underwater-type visuals. So, if you liked that style of fantastic youth adventure with an awful lot of parkour then this is the movie for you. The story is essentially a first-contact story with a sentient alien life-form that is nothing like Steven Spiegel ever dreamt of. This ET fell to Earth one day in the form of water-filled bubbles that seemed to defy gravity. The bubbles are a mystery to mankind as nobody realises what they are apart from one small boy who can hear the bubbles singing. The... See full review

Zings is a duo Idol group stuck playing in small underground clubs the lead member Yoshino is outgoing and the most popular as Yuuya is the complete opposite.

He asks Yoshino and he says that she was the most popular Idol until her death a year ago.  Only Yuuya can see Asahi and Asahi wants to be an Idol again.  You get where I am going?  Asahi tries to teach yuuya how...

Now this is a show I was pleasantly surprised about. Now there is a Yuri tag.

Takina was let go and was sent to Cafe Lyco Reco where she meets Chisato. Reluctant at this easy going girl and wondering how she ever... See full review

Okay Im gonna sound weird here but here me out. I enjoyed the dumbness of the show. There I said it. Phew.  Anyways if you can't tell from the other reviews yes this show is a generic mess of the isekai genre. However the CGI fight with the black knight was low-key Video Game quality (good) and I was actually surprised that within this mess the animators did put in a decent finishing result. The problem here is within the source material and dialogue. The MC is a battle junkie who told the goddess when he was reincarnated to remove his memories for extra stat points to put into skills.

The Missing 8 takes place on a dystopian planet inhabited by androids. When given the Power of Eight, the androids recieve a soul. Poppy is fascinated by humans but her partner Punk-kun couldn't care less about them. They fight monsters by using her imagination as the basis for his transformation into weapons. One night a star falls from the heavens, bringing with it a human.  The anime uses minimal animation, similar to still-frame, but after a few minutes I barely noticed. The story and mystery doesn't give you time to dwell on the unique style. Plotting is fast paced, but balances out with a... See full review

This Promotional Video highlights the Octavinelle Overblot story. In my opinion, this was the best of the first three stories in the game. I hope they animate it.  By the way, for anyone wondering about the mobile game Twisted Wonderland, it has no romance in it at all. It's very much like Toukan Ranbu, a gatcha game where you collect in-game "cards" level them up and fight little battles to advence the stories. Although, the stories do take place at an all-boys school for magic, it's mostly comedic fantasy where you play in order to read/play the stories. Some people have the misconception...

I'll be honest, though the main character was Atsushi, a lot of episodes were dedicated to specific characters like Dazai and halves of some episodes were based on characters like Kyouka. Dazai remained consistantly important in the story from the  very beginning and had a lot of screen time compared to most other characters and that's how it'll be with some other characters for the most part.

When anime adaptation of this very explicit erotic series was announced I was taken bit aback, because I knew this series from the manga adaptation. I was bit worried as well, because some initial character designs were pretty bad, but studio Passione absolutely delivered in the end. If you want the full experience you need to watch the uncut version. The title is bit misleading if you consider this anime, because even before the first episode aired, I knew there is no way for the story to go much beyond the second girl joining the party. This isn’t your typical isekai harem, where the MC gets... See full review

To be honest, this has gotten to be every ep is the same. Some guy instead of getting with a girl, he is paying her to act like she is with him. All while she goes on dates with other guys as part of her job which she picks to do. They play a will they won't they. But we seen this in how many anime now? It would've gotten interesting if they actually were in a actual relationship. I guess with season 3 they will make a movie or something. IDK if I will watch it.

I personally think this is my favorite anime of all time and it is #1 for me. The ending will leave you either crying or depressed (there is no in between).

Something many mediocre isekai shows have failed to do. I'd describe it mostly as isekai slice of perverted life. Also we have a MC that isn't pathetic and whiny, which is great. He is taking full advantage of the possibilities of the world he gets transported to. But that seems to be a problem for many children hating against this show.

This was surprise to me, because I went in with very low expectations and the main protagonist is visually very emasculated, but I did enjoy it. The series is ecchi obviously. It’s the sexy strong girl and cute young boy combo pairing. That was my initial impression. It isn’t harem even if there is another girl desperately wanting the MC, but he leaves her in friendzone. There are several points, where the series raised beyond my expectation of mediocre ecchi tropes. The first few episodes do establish a pattern of fights and school life. However, after few episodes the story shifts gears [1]... See full review

spoilers free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hmmm.. so to start of with this review ill first and formost mention about the characters vermeis plot has a really strong and deep back story and most of all the other characters are really lovable so to sum it up i really liked the plot and the story this anime actually depicts a budding romance between a demon and a human but what i feel like is that the demon is lesss like a demon and more like a human at least in my eyes , Alto Goldfield being a overpowered character and with special mana was kinda cool but his dialoges felt kinda cringe and to be honest...

Liden Films 2021 childhood drama-fantasy tries so very hard to convey emotional depth yet fails. The whole look and feel of this is of a kid’s cartoon which is at odds with the topic: grief. It has been a year since Kanna Hayama lost her mother and the girl has lost her passion for running – a hobby she shared with her late-Mum. She gets upset at school one day, after running a marathon, and runs away to a shrine where she dons her mother’s keepsake bracelet. Suddenly she is transported to the world of gods and demons. Apparently her mother had some residual supernatural powers and... See full review

As of this review, I have seen the first 5 episodes.  I went into this anime knowing nothing of the original series, so this is a fresh take on whatever this was. Unfortunatrely, I cannot continue this show. It's just too boring and convoluted. I like many aspects of the story and I do feel intrigued, but the characters make choices that don't fit their supposed characters. The BBEG (big bad evil guy) could have kept fighting and killed the kid, but chose to retreat? That's just boring writing. They should have had that scene go differently, imo.  The character flow of the show is weird, too... See full review

Honestly, I probably wouldn't have dropped this show if I havent already watched all 3 seasons of "World Trigger" (Highly reccomend you check that anime/manga out if you havent already). Chrome Shelled Regios really isnt all that bad of a show, it just shares so much in common with World Trigger, anddd World Trigger just blows this show out of the water to be honest. World Trigger does everything that this show does, but better. The simularites incluce, but not limited to; World Enemy Creatures, Military Squads, Competitions between Squads that simulate the real scenarios, and more of course. I... See full review

ehh.. I just found everything very nonsensical and weird and it reminds me of the kind of scenarios I get in my head when I first wake up in the morning and I close my eyes and try to sleep in again but can't. I don't understand why Dokuro chan behaves like that and I found it very annoying. The opening song goes really hard though, so that's why the overall is 7/10. besides that, it's weird. just really, really weird. I felt a little uncomfortable watching it but hey, it kept me busy.

Another case of getting pulled in by above average art and character design only for it to be ruined by the plot of the story.
Akki is straight up plot armor from the first episode so I got the message quickly, but the entire storyline falls apart around the time Kaikoku gets captured. It feels like a work in progress, keeping an eye out for season 2. The OVA isn't worth watching unless you wanna see Sakura's fat water balloons in a swimsuit. Speaking of Sakura, she's very much useless like the Sakura in Naruto, good job lol!

I literally love the animation style and the overall comedy of the show it's undoubtedly hilarious no matter what. ________________________________ *SEMI- SPOILER ALERT* literally one character shit his pants due to dedication and later started rapping insults at someone in a psychotic way... I laughed so hard because I wasn't at all expecting this.

In the beginning, this anime uses as a base many elements & structures from classic fairy tales like Snow White & Cinderella, but it has enough variation to create its own story in its own right; and will keep surprising you with the plot twists and how these elements are utilized through the story. This is a story with something to say, mainly "You shouldn't judge a book by its cover"; this theme runs throughout the anime putting your own preconceptions to test. If you are too quick to judge a character then you'll be probably wrong to do so without all the facts and getting to know... See full review

Go ahead and watch it all without reading comments, reviews, or watching a trailer so you can properly die inside like the rest of us. You'll know if it's for you or not after the first episode, but keep in mind that it matures pretty quickly. Playing the game is not mandatory since this is a prequel about a whole'nother cast of characters. That all being said, this is a very enjoable series that's just long enough to be relatively great. Art/animation style works well (especially when they change it up), soundtrack's pretty good (especially with how much the lyrics relate; "... See full review

I (newcomer to RWBY) watched this series with my husband (huge OG RWBY fan) expecting a better and proper retelling of the OG series. I thought with a series as massivly beloved and popular as RWBY and with pretty excellent staff members in the production, Crunchyroll would pull all the stops and go all out in creating a masterpiece. The final product is nothing but a kick in the gut for OG fans and a forgetable anime to newcomers.  The first 4 episodes were decent opening to the story but by episode 5 until final episode it goes downhill really fast.We're stuck in Weiss's Dream arc, that's...

The initial response from the community regarding this show was nothing but praise and lots of 10s flying around. On the other hand my reaction to it was complete apathy since I was looking at the whole thing from a neutral perspective. Once you do that most shows are nothing special and Edgerunners is no exception. Let’s get this out of the way right away. The reasons so many people liked it are:

1) It did not suck like the videogame it was based on (the bar was set very low)
2) Anything by studio Trigger is always praised and is well animated (the studio’s fame played a part)

Studio Trigger/CD Projekt’s 2022 high adrenalin sci fi thriller maxes-out the violence and cyberpunk aesthetics whilst remaining relatively unsophisticated. Premiering on Netflix in September that year the show is not short of nods to Ridley Scott’s “Bladerunner” (1982). It is a bloody & melancholy tale of High Schooler street-kid David who lives in a dystopian urban landscape of “Night City”. It is a wretched place where most people’s bodies are augmented by electro-biomechanical implants to survive the madness of the place. David is a bright kid and his Mum... See full review

I found myself thinking of this show even after finishing it quite a while ago. It's one of those shows that really stuck with me. I loved the characters, the art, the themes. It was amazing. Sure there are other shows with better pacing, characters, and stories but this is one of the few ones that genuinely impacted me. The OST made me emotional in unexpected places, the diolouge made me reflect on my own life, and I found myself immersed in the world. I can't really say anything other than I loved it but understand the show isn't for everyone.

It's fun on some level, but there are quite some awkward scenes. The protagonist groped a woman in front of her father who did not even flinch. Horniness is funny initially but becomes annoying and alarming very quickly. There is not much world building and the same gimmick was used repeatedly to advance the plot. On a positive note, there is a big fight that has good points such as animation and style. Overall it can be a fun watch but becomes repetitive.

RWBY: Ice Queendom

ThatAnimeSnob's avatar
Sep 18, 2022

The original RWBY was an anime-inspired western production that became a sensation among a lot of early Rooster Teeth fans. It lacked the polish but it was making it up with passion. Then the original creator died and those who carried on with the show made a huge clusterfuck that alienated most fans with its loose plot and lack of direction. The anime version of RWBY seemed to be a reboot at first. They remade the early episodes with a far higher budget and expanded certain events for fleshing out the characters and for introducing the world in a smoother way. On paper it was a remake that could surpass... See full review

Disclaimer: Most of what I wrote ended up being a comparison to the older version, since on its own the current Bastard is nothing special, just another action show in a sea of action shows. The 90s OVAs on the other hand were special. Not only they came out at a time when sakuga was rare in the medium, they also did the smart thing and trimmed the fat, leaving only the juiciest parts. There was a lot of crap in the source material that is simply not fun to read. The more faithful new adaptation carried over those bits, and as a result we got an average action schlock show that most will ignore or will be... See full review
