Killing Bites

Nov 21, 2018

Where do I start, this promises to be an ecchi and then disappoints after the first few episodes, then a few episodes later there is a bit more. So if you watch it for the ecchi you won't get much.
This is really a gladiator movie with a twist, there are these 'therianthropes' that are part human part beast and can transform at will. They are the gladiators. Owned by large corporations that use them for amusement and gamble on them to gain power. It's not clear how they came into being, although the featured 'therianthrope' seems to be the original. But that's about all we learn about them, except that... See full review

Nowadays most anime weebs think the best deconstruction of superheroes is either One Punch Man or My Hero Academia, although they are just a satire and the definition of a cheesy superhero story. It’s like they forgot that time in the 00s when Gantz was like a very violent critique on superheroes and social injustice, thus not that different than The Watchmen. It stopped being that when eventually the mangaka focused on the shallow spectacle and the themes became an afterthought. It was mostly the result of spectacle creep, not that different from what happens to most shonen that keep escalating... See full review

I wasn’t sure about starting this anime but I have to say that I’m really happy i did. Every character has his own story, his own development, his own relationship. Fear, pain, happiness, love... you can feel everything and it’s so... real!

Castlevania Season 2

ShavingSeagull's avatar
Nov 20, 2018

Full disclosure: I haven't ever actually played the Castlevania game, so this review is impartially based solely on its existence as a show. TL;DR - Give it a shot, but don't expect the next Game of Thrones. The first season of this had me intrigued and put-off in an almost equal fashion. While the premise seemed promising, the small number of episodes and some of the voice acting was detrimental to the series. That being said, I was looking forward to seeing how season 2 would turn out. The main issue I have with Castlevania isn't with its premise as a show itself - it's decently made from a technical...

Everything is to perfect, even when they do something wrong it is for a good reason.  If your a saint then they are ten times better than you throughout the whole story.  I got bored half way through and started skipping just to see them do something wrong.  I watched the last episode for no other reason than seeing the completion.  Even the Adults are perfect. If you like perfection this ones for you.

(spoiler free) for some reason this anime is really underrated,the story is awesome and all the characters (good or bad) are interesting.
there's a lot of gore scenes and a lot of action in every episode but at the same time it's filled with comedy and some cute moments.(kinda like gintama)
one other thing i like about it,is the main character,he's not a generic shounen protagonist,and he can't be even if he wanred to,given the situations he finds himself in and the amount of people he killed during the anime and even before the story started,but at the same time while doing the most...

Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise

roriconfan's avatar
Nov 19, 2018

Honneamise is a movie of antitheses. Everything about it has two sides, and it wasn’t done intentionally for the sake of keeping things grey. The production team was simply insecure and that shows everywhere in the film. You could say that’s what gives it an identity, but it’s surely not to its benefit. It’s like those movies where you see they did a lot of reshooting and last moment editing. You spot the insecurity and that’s a bad thing.

It’s not that obvious in Honneamise, but it’s still there when you know it was made by the Gainax crew. It’s not... See full review

ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.

“ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.” is a fresh breathtaking anime in the pop culture and anime community. Sadly, it’s one of the most underrated anime at the season, one which isn’t followed by many people, one that many complain about, and one that many don’t like just because of the theme they carry. This is one of the shows which presents something new about politics that everyone hates. What’s interesting about an anime that uses politics as its theme or coup d’etat? “House of Cards” is one of the same TV shows. “Joker Game” which... See full review

The show really reminds me of classic murder mystery movies where a slick detective keeps finding himself in awkward situations with gorgeous but untrustworthy ladies and some of the moth ruthless criminals ever seen. The created world is absolutely fantastic, there is so much going on and there is a lot of focus on little things that just make everything extremely lively. The art style, character design and the different angles used to tell the stories really gives a great vibe to the show, the pacing of the story telling makes this whole experience quite a masterpiece.

FLCL Progressive is a rare sequel that uses many of the same elements as the original FLCL and makes for a fun, different experience.             Any sequel has the challenge of living up to the original anime and FLCL may have been one of the most challenging anime to follow up. FLCL is a work that: came out at the right time, 2000; made by the right studios, Gainax and Production I.G.; has an unforgettable mix of visuals, social parody and characters. The story of FLCL is simple once broken down, but the journey is much more important than the... See full review

There is more to this anime than meets the eye, and a lot you can read between the lines with. This show isn't only just an action packed show about criminals with a hot main character and bloodlust. It's so much more than that, the darkest questions of morality pop up time and time again. My only complaint is that they didn't put out more content. (This also goes out to second barrage as well).

It you want a beautiful art piece then look no further than this anime. Done in a style similar to Puella Magi Madoka Magica this pushes the style of anime to the very non-traditional world of textures. Then, you listen to the story and see the absurdity of the "fan-service" and all you can do is sigh. The animators and art director should get promoted the writers and director should be fired. Not only is the story saturated with non-sense about the angelica moon cage and other such gibberish, there is a lack of logical continuty. Potentially, the best part *sarcasim* is the character who is... See full review

Wolf Children

aikaflip's avatar
Nov 17, 2018

A person falling in love with an attractive werewolf or vampire is a familiar theme in shapeshifter stories. What's less familiar is for these stories to extend beyond the relationship, and detail the hardships of raising "half breed" children in a prejudiced society. This is what sets Wolf Children apart from the rest of the pack. On the surface, such a premise may seem difficult to buy into, but Wolf Children works beautifully thanks to the writer/director, Mamoru Hosoda, opting to tell this story as a coming-of-age drama. He balances the tension with delightful humor, embodied by characters... See full review

So yea, that was weird.  The prequel was definitely better imho.  Animation and sound were still solid so I'm just going over story and characters.  Beware, possible spoilers ahead but I will try to keep it to a minimum. Story wasn't much at all.  The first arc with Karen as the main focus was terribly slow and the conclusion with kaiki left much to be desired.  I'm not sure how they even dragged it out that long.  Any that toothbrush scene was not necessary.  Tsukihi was really only the last 3 episodes I believe and the right at the end was just araragi getting beat up...

The story is actually really good in the manga. The animation seems really cut out and sometimes really bad. The sounds are alright I guess. The characters are alright in the anime, but we don't get to see some of the great things they do or say in the anime because Studio Pierrot decided to cram 100+ chapters into 12 episodes.  The anime doesn't do justice to the manga. Some people are tired of constantly being told to read the manga, but if you don't, you are not going to understand anything. It's impossible. It's so bad that people aren't understanding that Funimation, the company... See full review

What do I have so say. The first season really only shined on Hishiro and Kaizaki romance on the last few episodes which is fine, but I wish they did not have to kind of rush it in to 4 episodes, but I still loved the OVA and 1 season. I really enjoyed everything though. I jsut really enjoyed the anime and really am glad that they met at the end and HOPEFULLY they get married. I just am sad that this anime is over since I really enjoyed it. Thats all I have to say.

SukaSuka (or WorldEnd) is a post-apocalyptic fantasy drama, with romance being one of it's key elements. This concept isn't too over used, and it does take a somewhat unique take in it.

There are many reasons Haikyuu!! became a recent favorite of mine, and it's in this third season that all of those are fully realized. That they decided to devote ten full episodes to just one game shows the level of care and respect that went into the season's planning, and all this effort culminates into something memorable in the end. While the story still appears to be far from over, Haikyuu's third season is as satisfying a conclusion as you can get, since it was able to benefit from well-paced build-up in the first two seasons. It's true there's nothing immediately unique about Haikyuu... See full review

Castlevania Season 2

zala's avatar
Nov 16, 2018

Castlevania is like many anime attempting to be gritty by having lots of gore, lots of blood and a lack of purpose. The vampires are boring, the characters don't do much and the story has little momentum. If people want vampire action, seeing Dracula portrayed as vulnerable by having a mortal wife that he never turned is interesting. The problem is that this never really matters.  I don't recommend this anime because the characters are hollow, the story is poorly gritty and there is a sense of pointlessness.

The animation can be weird at points where they draw the characters over photographs with a filter on them but in general, I don't think it takes away that much from the experience other than by reminding you that the show was made to sell merchandise.

The class weirdo is really mean, so she confronts him and makes a contract with him, first it's pretty basic: "meet up with me and keep me company". Then it becomes more and more advanced... She, the class weirdo, forces him to wear the clothes he stole under his normal clothes when... See full review

When I started watching the Goblin slayer I had no idea what is it to going to be about. So what is wrong with the series? The first obvious problem with the series is discrepancy between the style of the world, side characters and dark fantasy that the anime should supposedly be. This is precisely the reason why many people were surprised by the first episode. The overall style is not that different from Sword Art Online or other more self-indulged non-dark fantasy, with exception of the main protagonist, who with his Dark Souls design stands out like sore thumb.

For example, poker which is one that I love within the scope of gambling. Even though you don’t really understand how the game works, there are many ways to get lots of chips depending on how you can adapt to such one table. Simply, “Kakegurui: Compulsive...

This anime is really something special. It's not something bold and grabby to nab the mainstream attention.

It's something I will never forget. The serene, colorful animation was amazing. The simplicity of the story while still making it alluring was art.

I'm not the type of person to watch something because it's mainstream, but I'm also not the kind of person to be hyper critical of something and hate it just because it is mainstream.

Just a short little review, nothing special or hopelessly in depth. Naruto Shippuden and its predecessor Naruto are some of the most iconic titles in the Shounen genre. Akin to the DBZ series, people usually either love it or they hate it. Really, there are plenty of spots to do both in this series. The huge variety of characters, beautiful soundtrack, powerful emotions tied to the most insignificant of characters, and unique abilities that have obviously been given lots of thought.

This is one of the most unique animes I've seen all year, and even though the panty-shot troupe was used often, it was relevant enough to the story that it didn't feel worn out.

This is by far one of the best Animes to ever exist. The way the story and characters are written are done with nothing but perfection. It has 900+ episodes but thats one of the best parts about it because its the kind of anime that makes you desperate for more!!!

A romantic love story of 25 episodes, I was skeptical they could keep me interested.  Not for a moment it actually had me guessing what would happen at times and it kept it realistic.  The characters are well developed and the stories of who loves who kept you interested.  My only negative was the ending, I wanted to see a marriage.

I was browsing through some other anime when this came up on a recommendation. I clicked and watched, since it was only a minute long and I'm bored. God i wish i didnt click it. I literally feel sick to my stomach. Those with a weak stomach like me, don't watch. I'm gonna go throw up now. wish i could put 0 for the score, but 1 is the lowest it can be.

well personally I am not very much into supernatural stories. Of course I don't believe in dead people returning to earth. I really felt sorry about the character Yukiyatzu. He really loved Menma a lot. He deserved to talk to Menma one last time.

This is the show that got me into anime. I have watched this twice already and wouldn't hesitate watching it again.  First: the story, which is amazing. ice skater katsuki yuri loses a pretty important championship and gets kinda depressed, returning to his home town in japan after 4 years. victor nikiforov is like the best ice skater of his time, having won many championships already. he moves on impulse to japan to coach yuri. ah, did i mention that victor is yuri's longtime idol and crush? throw in some awesome side characters, amazing music, enjoyable animation and love, and...

I really enjoyed this series.  The characters were great and so was the story line.  I wish that we were given more information on Elias and why he acted the way he acted.  It would be great if they gave us another season and focaused on Chise and Elias' relationship and feelings.  It has so much potential and I felt letdown a bit but I did really enjoy it.  I do recommend the anime.

My Hero Academia The Movie: Two Heroes

What it is: A love letter to fans of the franchise. What it isn't: A stand-alone film to attract new fans to the series. Let's get this out of the way: if the thrill of seeing Horikoshi Kohei's art explode on the big screen is your only reason for watching this, then you won't go home disappointed. But if you're looking for a little more depth and development for the characters or the story, then you're better off getting into the series instead. The movie is more filler than franchise-builder, so there isn't a lot to expect here by way of plot progression. The nuanced and teamwork-based set-ups from the... See full review
