Man, this series was amazing! It kept me on the edge of my seat!See full review
This one is really nice. An aspect of the film that some people don't like about it is that the stakes of the narrative are relatively small when compared to its two Ghibli predecessors. This is one of the reasons it stands out to me though. The story is simplified and focused on just the world of its characters, and the stakes remain in that contained space. It makes the film much more lighthearted and relaxing, all while Miyazaki's environmentalism remains in the undertones of the film. The music is still wonderful. The visuals are stellar. The characters are all appealing. Great family film.See full review
This anime was okay. It establishes a unique premeise and capitalizes on it pretty well. That was nice to see. The characters are kinda meh though. The animation and music were decent enough to ever so slightly pleasing, earning them a 6. Undfortunately, while the show capitalizes on a unique premise, that is sort of the only appeal to the story. It is executed really well regarding the plot, but it lacks all depth or nuance. This is good romance show if you want to turn your brain off. Otherwise, this one is just kinda passable as a tv production.See full review
Story Matsui is an innocent high schooler who falls in love with the swim captain Yuuji, thus deciding to become a member of the swimming club. He is taken by Yuuji to a bar, after a swim competition, where he is mocked by Yuuji's friends and stupidly drinks and smokes anything they give him. We can already see in the bar that the members of the group have sexual attraction towards each other, which is better explained when Azumaishi and Kurakawa are having sex but while Azumaishi is in love with Kurakawa, Kurakawa is in love with Yuuji. Meanwhile, Yuuji is confronted by his grandfather for his... See full review
After 5+ years, I finally managed to force myself to finish these 12 episodes. After the first few episodes, this anime loses all its charm and just becomes an unfunny, reptitive filler. It's not outright horrible because it at least has characters with personalities (as 1-dimensional as they might be) and occasionally has a plot (as absrud or forgettable as it may be). This anime is nothing more than a time waster. The animation is average. The music is generic enough to forget about it immediately. Voice acting is average at best. Characters are below average. Plots are almost nonexistentent... See full review
This one is a decent continuation of the previous season. The show's visuals remain very appealing. The music isn't as good, but this season doesn't overuse it's best tracks. So it gets the same score in sound. The characters are expanded upon from the previous season, but there is a new character that was added as an excuse to just have more material, and she is kinda annoying. So while the original characters improve a bit, I still have to give it the same character score. The story suffers from that new character even though they expand on the coming of age angle of the show. So it will keep a score of... See full review
This show is pretty okay. Emphasis on pretty. The animation is really nice, the camera work is comedically overdramatic, and I think that was intentional. The music is nice. Though it's kind of used poorly. Like, some of my favorite tv anime tracks come from this show, but all those best tracks are severely overused in the show. The characters are kinda wild and overdramatic for comedic effect, and I would say a bit too much. The story is meh, but overall, it's KyoAni doing what they do well, funny cute stuff.See full review
This movie is a wonderous journey. I know this is something that most Ghibli movies do, but this one is particularly exceptional. Each frame in the film is a beautiful work of art, and the characters are entertaining and well motivated (except the bad guy, who is just kinda evil and the only reason this movie isn't closer to a ten for me, but Mark Hamill does a good job with him). The music is the same beautiful music you normally get from Ghibli films. This one is real solid. Definitely watch it.See full review
Kiki's as great. I think it really does stand out among the other Ghibli films. The main character is thrust into an unfamiliar world, and she has to adapt to cope with that world. It doubles as a pretty well executed coming of age film as well, and it is all wrapped up in the warmth and nostalgia that Ghibli delivers so well. The ending is a little bit cheesey in my opinon, but if you don't mind that sort of thing, then this movie is a delightful nostalgia trip. If you are not one for nostalgia, then I for you I guess it's just a well animated kids movie with really beautiful music.See full review
This show was okay. Another visual novel adaptation by KyoAni earlier in the studio's life. The visuals are pleasant, as well as the music and sound. However, the characters and story were just sort of your run of the mill Key Visual Arts characters. They were fun in ways similar to characters from Clannad After Story, but they lack a lot of the weight and thematic significence that After Story carried. The show also suffers from a pattern similar to that of Clannad's first season. It's decent. Watch it maybe, but if you have something better to do. Do that instead.See full review
interesting concept but not well executed... plus the ending was super rushed and unsatisfying. maybe their funding got cut. there were some lovable characters (rin's foster dad, issei) but the characterization wasn't that good. overall i enjoyed some parts but it probably isn't worth your time. I've heard that the manga is supposed to be better. it did have an enchanting feel and ED that was niceSee full review
This is actually one of my least favorite Ghibli movies. I know a lot of people say it's their favorite, but it doesn't quite hold up for me. Now, I am not saying I don't enjoy this film. I have yet to experience Ghibli film that I thought was bad in any way. I just like this one less than the others. It feels like it's too Ghibli if that makes sense. Like, it hits all the Ghibli beats perfectly, the wonderously unique premise, the warm character designs, the quintessential Ghibli pretty boy, the magical adventure, and the heartwarming ending. However, beyond these things, it doesn't really distinguish... See full review
I like cute shit, but i dont like bland or a 42 year old flirting with an 11 year old.
And dont say dumb shit like ''he's reborn so technically he's 11'' Mentaly he's 42, and he remmembers his past life as well, so he should atleast remmember his prefference when it comes to womens, or in his case little girls... And yes i know it's a story, so who wants to watch a story about an 42 year old and an 11 year old flirting?
Also if the author just forgot he was 39, then that's a bigg ouff from his side.

I really liked this anime the story was good, the characters loved what they did and seemed to know way more about what they were doing then me. Dont let other peoples somewhat bad reviews stop you from watching this show. its not for everyone thats true but i didnt even understand what they were doing and i still caught myself fully into there games and the things that were happening around themSee full review
I was sceptical about this serie before I watched it because of the comments. A few days ago I thought of watching it and man, am I glad I did! It's very, very good. The story about a hero sinking lower then thought possible because of backstabbing that makes your blood boil. Then he goes on and keeps getting good adventures and gets stronger which makes me laugh out loud occasionally. Then he's trapped again and sinkes even lower. After a while he gets thus good because of his hard work other 'hero's' can't keep up and I find myself cheering each time he does it. Once I found a guy deserving... See full review

You should watch this for the comedy, its spot on. And the more you watch the funnier it gets.
The series doesnt take itself seriouse which i enjoy, its also not bland or anoying, eventhough the idea of a princesse being kidnapped should allready be the nr 1 cliche story, but i havent seen anyone make that idea into a comedy except this one.
Story 8/10 (Theres alot to write about here, but i'll keep it short)

To preface, this review is coming from someone who has not watched or played the original game. Overall, this anime was entertaining. The opening was strange yet catchy and was what usually drew me back to watch it again. It seems to establish a conflict and setting very well within the first few episodes. The characters were memorable but I didn't like how they were introduced as if we should already know them. From many reviews, it seems that many people came to this anime from the game. Even though the story barely takes influence from the original game, I think it should've taken a more standalone... See full review
This anime is another Isekai kind of genre with a group instead of just one person, despite that it has some good ideas, and character developements. We have the mc who doesnt like to socialise with people, and we have 3 other sidecharacters that have their own problems, they all seems to have a common goal ''finding themself'' and realising what kind of person they really are (And offcourse finnishing the quest)
The story itself is bland, and it seems to be just complete all the quest the game master has to give you.

No spoilers- Simple plot, simple characters, and a simply good and enjoyable anime! If you’re looking for a well balanced and real feeling slice of life anime, this one is perfect! Although I thought it was a little weird that Kouhei was cooking with his student, the dynamic ended up having more of a family feel. Life isn’t cut and dry, and I feel like this anime showcased that well with the challenged Tsugumi and her dad faced together. I enjoyed learning about Japanese cuisine and by the end of the series, I found myself making the okonomiyaki along with them! A quick, relaxing, and wholesome... See full review
No spoilers- The movie was enjoyable but nothing special. I enjoyed the period setting and its subsequent visuals and accompanying music, but the story was really lacking for me. I thought it would go more in-depth into her growth as her own artist, but instead her and her father performed spiritual services? I enjoyed the whimsical aspect of it, but felt it was extremely disjointed from the other story points. In addition, there was an attempt at creating a romance, of which was never flushed out as well. A lot of good ideas but none of them were well executed. I think this movie would have benefitted from... See full review

3 S review No.5 (short, simple and salty/sweet/spicy) Ok, lot of people are saying don’t read anything about the show, just watch it, you gonna spoil it etc. Bunch of crap, nothing here to get spoiled. The so called plot twist is revealed really early in the show. Its not really a plot twist, its just the way the world in this show is. And I gotta tell you, its pretty intriguing and gloomy. The thing is though, there is a big contradiction here, between what is presented, and how it is presented. As dark and gloomy the world really is, the presentation is quite light hearted and kind of... See full review

This was an okay show. The animation was good and the story was kind of okay. The music was just sort of okay, and while the characters are entertaining and visually interesting on a base level, very few of them are really expanded upon beyond their um... unique interests. The show is an acceptable time killer for sure, but don't go in with the highest of expectations. Watch if you can't think of anything else to watch or do. Basic harem stuff.See full review
Ah. This movie stings in all the right ways. It is an effective period piece, and the attention to detail in the environments is incredible. The world building sets the stage beautifully with its appealing art and sometimes disturbing imagery, and that stage is set for two very well executed main characters. This film is a beautiful tragedy. I highly urge folks to watch this one.See full review
This is an interesting anime. It may not be your anime, but it has some interesting things to say about the anime industry itself. It propogates the elements of the enime industry that kinda get creators, from the writers to the actors, to end up stuck in a place where they are producing the mediocre. So I give its story some points for that. The animation is good. The music is fine, I guess. The characters are also, fine, I guess.See full review
It is far from my favorite Ghibli film, but like most of the other Ghibli movies, this film excelently combines story, animation, and music into an immersive and joy filled cinematic experience. The characters travel through an enticing narrative. I highly recomend the film to folks that seek out immersive and beautiful film experiences.See full review
Okay. I am going to approach this review with as little bias as possible. If I am going to be honest, as an Eva fan, I don't like this movie that much. It hurts my weeb feelings, but as a lover of film, this thing still has some merit. As many others have pointed out, this film suffers from lacking certain artistic elements of the original series, but I am going to ignore that and approach this from the perspective that the creator asked me to, to see it as a "companion piece". I will not so much compare it to the original as I will try to look at it as an independent film meant to be consumed... See full review
Perfect Blue is an iconic psychological horror movie. It blurs the line of reality and imagination using the addiction and darkside to the world of fame. The animation is rich and eery, creating a noir sense which heightens the quality. The movie is somewhat explicit. The action is wrapped up with a somewhat ludicrous revelation, which, on its own terms, doesn't exactly make sense, but Perfect Blue has its own kind of cult pungency. Satoshi Kon works will always be held in high regard and this is a perfect example of that. In the film Requiem For A Dream, the latter director acquired the rights only to... See full review
I watched this anime with no idea of what was ahead of me. You just cannot look away, believe me. It can be tough to swallow, so proceed at your own risk, the series is not squeamish about violent gore and bare flesh. However the lurid use of sex and violence is not only gratuitous; it is a tool used to illustrate the overindulgent, often shameful essence of being human. In its message, it is often heavy-handed to display a greater theme that humanity are the true devils, but its unwavering embrace of storylines such as lgbtqia+ romance is refreshing. I'm personally a massive fan of the animation... See full review
This one is okay. The story was kinda dumb and forced, but the animation was alright. I liked the music and the characters enought to finish the show, and if this means anything, it was my first anime. So, it was decent enough for me to want to watch more anime after I watched it.See full review
This one is okay. It's story is kindof unnecessarilly convoluted. The viduals are pleasing to the eye though. The characters are slightly interesting. Just enough for me to have finished the series. My general response to this show is "Ugh, well I guess I will watch one more episode." Then I just sort of kept doing that until it was over. I have dropped shows that I enjoyed more than this.See full review
This anime is a masterpiece. It takes an innovative episodic approach to story telling, and it does so accompanied by an extremely entertaining soundtrack and wonderfully executed visuals, from the movement of its characters to the environments and they way action scenes have a powerful impact on the set pieces. Each character is uniquely nuanced, and they are explored in a very "show, don't tell" manner. The show is able to emotionally connect its audience to each of its characters whenever it pleases, all while taking the audience on a blast of a space adventure full of battles, chases...

This show is a very welcome improvement upon its previous season. The visuals and sound stay mostly the same with slight improvements, but the story is able to focus in on a single narrative goal and tell a tighter, more intimate story.

Kyoto Animation is still knocking out of the park with the animation and cinematography with this show, and it is almost worth watching entirely for that reason. The music is nice too, and it's used pretty well. However, the characters and story are pretty bad (The story is actually pretty good at the start, but after the 4th episode the story begins a slow and painful decrease in quality for the rest of the series).See full review
This was an enjoyable movie. The story suffers slightly from a poor attempt of cramming too much in to 2 hours. The movie has two plots. One is good, one is bad. The story following the main characters and their family is fantastic. The teen drama plot suffers because the characters were underdeveloped (They are more explored in the manga, but in the case of a 2 hour film, I think those characters and that plot should have been left out entirely). Whith all this being said, the film has some real top teir animation and cinematography. Some of KyoAni's best visual work. The soundtrack is also very innovative... See full review
