Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen

RabidMonk's avatar
Oct 7, 2009

Interestingly when I first came across this anime I was really confused.  There were all sorts of fan rankings saying great things about the Rurouni guy and also this show called Samurai X and there were all these titles and alternate titles and then some other anime that was related but not the OVA thing (which I had no idea what that was originally) and so on and so forth. For the uninitiated it was a huge, confusing mess of information and if it wasn't for good old wikipedia I'm sure I'd never have figured it all out. Ahem... So this was one of the first animes I watched and it was... See full review

Berserk

Oct 7, 2009

Ah Berserk.  What a weird show.  I remember choosing this because I grew up a huge medieval nut (Yes, I still am one) and I wanted to find something along those lines which would fill that interest which had been dormant for too long of late.  Somehow I came across Berserk.  Now this was still during those first days of my anime career where I was hesitant to just try things out because I wasn't really sure how to find anime that I'd like and there was still that part of me that wondered if I'd just gotten lucky in finding the first one or two shows that I had...

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

Note: Since the movie is really part of the series I watched it spliced in where it belonged - however, I have a review for both which is this same review so don't bother reading both unless you really enjoyed my review the first time. =) I really enjoyed Cowboy Bebop.  It's one of those shows that actually become better to me once I'd finished it.  What I mean by that statement is simply that once the story had come to completion and the characters then had been fully fleshed out I could think back on the older episodes and appreciate them in a very different way than I could at...

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Oct 7, 2009

I'm not going to spend too long on this one since most everyone has seen it and you already probably know what to expect.  Yes it's a really fun ride but to avoid wandering down familiar alleys I'm just going to pick out a few things I liked and a few things I didn't like. Likes: Fun characters, fun story, lots of crazy plot twists, spectacular anime quality, fun setting, fun characters. Dislikes: Lots of battles (way better than most battle heavy anime though).  That's mostly it.  I just really enjoyed this one for what it was.  Sure it's nothing ground breaking story wise...

Midori Days

Oct 7, 2009

Ok, so a short backstory on this one.  I originally tried to watch this in the early days of my anime life and I couldn't really get into it.  I don't think I saw the first episode though which may have been part of the problem.  To be honest, the whole hand turning into a woman thing was really odd and I didn't think I'd be able to get through it this time either, but I put my nose to the grindstone and I'm really glad I did. The recommendations for this one seemed to put it right up the alley that I enjoy when I'm in the mood for something silly and light hearted that just is fun... See full review

Nodame Cantabile

Let me preface by saying this is one of the best anime series I've seen.  I anticipated good things considering the comments and reviews I'd read, but I had no idea how much I'd really enjoy it even though I'm not particularly a fan of either the piano or classical music (I do appreciate both but I'm not the type to go buy a cd or something). From the theme song to the closing credits it was a great ride and other than a few tiny things I'd say it's a near perfect anime. Positives: The animation, music, characters, and story are all really great.  There was also a lot of humor in the... See full review

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge

Oct 7, 2009

So Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is a bit of a mixed bag.  While on one hand I did end up finishing (which I won't do with many anime I don't find worth my time) there were several times I almost gave up on it.  In fact, I spent most of the first 10 or so episodes wondering why I was continuing to watch.  I'd seriously considered dropping it a number of times but whether it was due to my not having anything better in the hopper or simply a desire to see it through somehow I pressed onward.  In the end am I happy I did?  I'm not really sure.  I guess the...

Positives: Really fun concept, well planned out characters and supporting cast, mostly great episode plots.  Now this anime again isn't all... See full review

So this is one of those animes that nearly everyone tells you is the mother of all anime and so awesome, and it's the best thing ever, and how you have to watch it.  If you ask me...it's only a half-step above crap.  I know, I know, it was one of the first of its kind and it set the table for so much of what has come since, but even giving those props where due, it's a mediocre power-up mecha with really mediocre characters and a horrible, horrible, (did I mentione horrible?) absolute rubbish ending...I'll get into that later I'm sure. Anyhow, so this was one show that I tried watching... See full review

Not much to really say about this that hasn't already been said in my initial Ah! My Goddess TV review.  This season is all about appeasing the fans who just wanted more of the same.  While that may be a good thing for many fans it's also the reason why it's a bad thing. Positives: More of the same.  Same world with the fun characters you've already come to appreciate and enjoy after watching the first season.  There are also some really fun plot lines that get explored and naturally the character development of the two main characters is a key element that mostly doesn't...

Ah!  What a surprise find!  I'm glad I somehow decided to watch this one though I can't remember how I found out about it.  It's not often I find a show that is both unique, funny, and a great ride until the end. Positives: So you start the first episode of Genshiken and you don't know what to really expect of a show that's all about Otaku, but then the cool intro music begins and you are tossed into a fun exchange of a boy trying to decide if he's going to join what is ultimately the nerdiest club on campus.  And from then on you get to experience in some part what it may very...

I was disappointed to hear so many people didn't enjoy this season as much as the first and so going into it I was both a bit cautious and concerned.  I'm glad to say that those who didn't think this season was as funny or believe that it had somehow lost its magic were totally wrong. NC: Paris is a great follow up to the first season and while short has continued to fuel my love for the characters and story. Positives: Again Chiaki and Nodame bring something magical to the anime world with both their quirky relationship and their music.  There are some complaints that their relationship...

Every once in a while you find the show that fits you so perfectly and goes through a whole season without disappointing.  For me this show was Spice and Wolf.  It's strange to think that I'd give a show about commerce the highest rating possible, but it is what it is... Positives: We begin with a great pair in Craft Lawrence and Horo (I'm sorry I can't buy into the "proper" translation being Holo...*sigh*) who are in so many ways the classic example of opposites attract.  There is a fun and witty commentary of their relationship being patterened through the season and...

Blood+

For me the sign of a good anime is one where when it ends I feel a sense of loss knowing that the story of the characters you've come to care about has ended.  With Blood+ I feel this way and because of that I know it was something I enjoyed.  Strangely when it all began 50 episodes ago I was very much a skeptic and initially I expected very little: Positives: Once things get going Blood+ is a solid story about finding your place in the world and coming to understand the value of things that are most important.  There are a dozen other things you could add, but for me that's kind of...

Ouran High School Host Club

RabidMonk's avatar
Oct 7, 2009

So oddly most people that watch this anime seem to love it and for me it was really more or less a "meh".  I actually stopped several times and only came back to it because I had nothing else in the hopper and in truth it only got a 3 of 5 because of the final arc.  Up to about episode 20 there were only 3 episodes that I can say I actually enjoyed and all of them were outside of the host club... So anyhow, here's my review: Positives: At moments the show has some really good things to talk about.  Namely the episodes about how things got along outside of the school and... See full review

REC

Oct 7, 2009

So Rec was an intersting find.  For those unfamiliar with it you'll find that the episodes are only about 10 minutes long and there are only 10 of them so you basically get what amounts to an average length movie. Positives: Now Rec was interesting and I really liked the premise.  There must be something deep down inside me that would have loved to have ended up in a situation like this that made it appeal, but the end result is a short, and just slightly unique love story with some good comedic bits. Rec doesn't last long enough to ever get boring and though you miss a lot of the... See full review

Wow, what a great anime.  Every once in a while I still come across a gem that really changes my view of what good anime can be.  We get stuck with a lot of formulaic and often trite stories which go nowhere and do little more than make us smile, but with Moster, that's simply not the case. Positives: Where to begin!  Monster is epic, and I don't mean that in the meme sense at all. There are 74 episodes in the story and there is little of what I would consider filler in there if anything.  So many interesting facets comprise the story which is just short of superb.  When...

Ristorante Paradiso

A nice relaxing anime with an interesting twist. I can honestly say this is the only reverse harem I've seen that features older men. I was worried it would be about lecherous old men drooling over a young woman, but it wasn't. If anything, the men are portrayed as sex objects more than the women! It is romantic in a unique way, and the plot is actually quite interesting. The food isn't quite center stage, and it is more about the main character getting her life together. The ending gives me a good sense of closure and leaves with with a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Honey and Clover

sarwor248's avatar
Oct 7, 2009

A great series if you are looking for a complicated love story. Don't be afraid of how young Hagu looks; she is a young adult who is underdeveloped, and the characters romantically interested in her are not Lolicons. It's a great mix between wacky comedy and tender romance, and will keep you on the edge of your seat. It's also a great coming-of-age story, and I know many people can identify with that :) I will warn you, the end feels incomplete because it is; you have to watch the sequel to get the whole story and to feel satisfied.

This is one of the first anime I've seen handle homosexuality in a realistic way. Instead of being a flimsy excuse for pretty boys to be together, it is actually shown in context within our society and is shown from many angles. The characters seem so real, and the animation is beautiful. It is funny and beautiful all at the same time. I felt so satisfied by the end, and just wish there was more of it.

It was okay. They got carried away with the side story. It felt like it was the main plot, while the "real" main plot felt like the side story. Since the show was named after Munto, I would think he would be the center of the show. He was hardly in it. He would show up for a few seconds and disappear. The whole time I was asking myself who are these people in the magic world, and why should I care about them? The climax was disappointing.I think it would have been better if it was longer. It had too much going on to show in just 50 minutes. I think it should have been a regular length... See full review

If I were to have read the plot, I would think that this show would be really generic and uninteresting. Somehow only one of those were true. It seemed generic, but I couldn't help but think it was really interesting. Maybe it was the large amount of cute girls that kept my interest. A lot of the show felt like fillers which is odd for a show of only 12 episodes long. There were a lot of episodes where it introduced a new romance, but never focused on them later on in the show. Even in the last episode it only focused on about half of them. What about the girl that was on the swimming team? It felt... See full review

This show wasn't that great. By the time there was an actual plot I didn't care anymore. I hated most of the characters.

The only character I really liked was Amagumo, but he wasn't in the show that much.

I feel stupid for putting it off for so long. I thought it was amazing.

Good show. The character Mokkun was awesome. The little thing was so cute, but then it had to ruin everything by turning into a shirtless man. I just don't like how they have all these small stories that fill up the show until you get to the main problem near the end. You can tell that the antagonist at the beginning of the show wasn't the main villain, so it felt difficult to get into that part. I know nothing major was going to happen because they would save dramatic events for the final bad guy. Still, it was fun. I found it kind of cool that that Katsuyuki Konishi played the character Guren... See full review

Usually I don't like shows like this. The harems I usually like aren't obsessive about the pantie shots like this show. I like the more serious shows, but I think this was like Chobits in a way. It has humor, but it can be serious as well. What was up with the animation. It seemed like the animators were keep switching out. They weren't really consistent. The way I really tell if I liked a show or not is when the show ends. I felt sad when the show was over. I got attached to the characters, and now that it is over, its like my friends are leaving

I thought it was a great show, that is until I got to the ending. I suddenly became confused, and I felt like I got and ending that I really didn't want. I was watching episode 12, and I was hoping that 13 would be amazing. I then saw the previews. The last episode was recap? Well, this site lists the show as 12 episode, so it must be an OVA I guess.  This series loves recap. The last episode is recap, and the whole last arc is like an alternate retelling. The movie is also an alternate retelling of the series. I noticed that the special is an elaboration of the Summer arc.

StoryThe plot through season 2 of Saiunkoku Monotagari progressed at the same general pace as the first season, slowly, but deep and full of subtleties unnoticeable at first glance. These subtleties definitely increase this anime’s re-watch value. Furthermore, if you can be patient through some of the lower-tempo parts of the series, you are rewarded with a few intricately placed plot twists created by cunning characters and complimented by a thoroughly thought provoking dialogue.

Tales of the Abyss

Abyssmal Load Times: Plot PrimerI couldn't pass up the chance to see an anime based on one of my favorite games of all time even if other game animes fell short in the past. Also, I realize that's it's almost impossible to not make this review a compare and contrast model having seen the anime and played the game. All the original plot and characters are present and provide much of the same experience as given in game; the only difference being the length of mediums. Watching the anime is like reading flash ficiton while playing the game remains akin to reading a novel. This change wouldn't pose a problem... See full review

Voices of a Distant Star

Intro...Split by distance, two close school friends exchange text messages and as they get further apart, they take longer to get there.Story: 10Voices of a Distant Star is one of those series that get's viewers simply because of its reputation.  And if there was any anime out there that deserved that, then Voices is certainly the one.  Its hard for me to talk about the story without having spoilers, as being only 20 odd minutes in length, everything in the anime is somewhat critical to the plotline.  But that's what makes it so good.  The story is a simple, yet beautiful tale of how two...

Gore, boobs, and lesbian tendancies. oh yes and a whole lot of screaming ICZER-ONEI'm still not 100% sure what i watched here but what i did it was kinda interesting.... The music... oh wow... it wasn't terrible but it was very intrusive. it was ALWAYS playing and totally being in the way.You know there really wasn't much to this anime but boobs and gore. There was some fighting but it wasn't really anything interesting, the gore was OMG wow are they really doing that and a lot of tentical action. which is well funny.If you are a fan of girls fighting something and the animation is dated i suggest you check...

This one I found to be quite hilarious! There is no limit to how many times i can watch episode 6 in the second half of the episode. DEATH CATS!!!!!Nobue was my favourite character. Probably cause she's the oldest and just really wants to be a kid again. The smoking aspect of her I really enjoyed even though I hate smoking. I think it just made her her to me and it fitted the character perfectly. Miu was the most annoying character but still had her moments. She was made out to be the annoying one for a reason and fitted the role perfectly. I wouldn't have had her any other way! I would re watch this... See full review

Millennium Actress

This movie was simply amazing. The art, music, characters and story was just wow. I haven't enjoyed something like this in quite sometime. It was just amazing experience that if you haven't seen it yet you should go out and get it. Of course you gotta like love stories to really enjoy the beauty of this one. But maybe you don't either as it was quite the trip through this movie. The lead female was simply amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better way to tell her story than the way she did. I really have to watch this one again as it deserves rewatches over and over again.

I wish I could say I had good things to say about it but I don't. It's suppose to be another comedy/slice-of life. All I got from it was the slice-of-life... Which is the least favourite genera for me as I've hated the majority of the ones I've seen with a few exceptions of course. Like with music every genera has something good to offer. You just gotta find it. If you like art. More so drawing. You'd might like this one. It did have a few laughs but not nearly as many as I would have liked. None of the girls I found to be interesting at all which made it worse while watching cause i generally... See full review

Loveless

Mmmmmm what can I say about this one.... Don't bother with it perhaps? :P Unless you really REALLY love Shounen-ai. Cause I can see how people who really like watching those anime would like this one. Hell I like watching that stuff but this one just didn't do it for me. Cat boys in chains are generally amusing to me and enjoyable the the one in Loveless was rather annoying and very unlikeable to me. Like most anime it was made before the manga was finished thus resulting in a shitty outcome. So I'll probably be picking up the manga someday to see what really happens at the end. Or at least give me a... See full review

This one was a surprise enjoyment. The Summery of it makes it seem rather dull. But the character development and interaction with one another was pretty darn good. It even managed to surprise me a little as well. Which is a HUGE accomplishment because I almost always "see it coming" None of the characters really annoyed me so that was another accomplishment for this anime as well. Tiz was a little annoying but I could see why she was being whiny so it wasn't all that bad.I found it a little weird that it only had 11 episodes so I though that the end was going to be rushed or just not...
