Clannad After Story

up until second half of the show, we deal with some pretty retarded stuff such as: Tomoya acting like he is banging Sunohara's sister so Sunohara gets angry! but he doesn't and suddenly there are some punches and he starts caring for his sister and... (you get the point) a love story between Misae and reincarnated ghost in cat's body! miyazawa yukine gets punch in the face and after yelling and crying, the punks who started this fight get emotional and all of that territory problem crap gets solve on it's own, and after all this, she thinks it's a good idea sleep on Tomoya's leg which based on her...

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai

jimpaly's avatar
Jan 26, 2019

At first, when I saw this in my recommended, I was surprised and even kind of angry. I thought that "Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Sempai" would be one of those anime that focuses too much on fan service without even caring about the story or character development. But this anime is the exact opposite! It is not about a random girl in a bunny suit! It actually has a good story! Whoever thought of this title needs think about it again. This type of clickbait won't work on anime. As soon as I saw the title, I immediately looked away. It wasn't until the hundredth time I saw this on... See full review

Cells at Work!

Jan 25, 2019

On one hand you want to give a realistic impression on how the body works. On the other hand you want to make it so people want to watch it. There's **** trees growing all over the place and giant japanese demon statues in the heart. If you are bothered by this, then this is not the show for you. As for actual technical things that bothered me were the two main characters: neutrophil and red blood cell. Neutrophil shouldn't have been given a knife; neutrophils are bombs that completely obliterate everything in the area (including themselves and healthy cells) with H2O2/hydrogen peroxide. They should... See full review

The manga was so much better than the anime that’s the first thing i’ll say. This anime is apparently suppose to make you sad *SPOILER* but honestly all the deaths pissed me off because later in the anime it began too predictable. My reactions were like “Someone else died? Way too make the anime more unwatchable”. Story: The story had it’s up and downs. Every character had their own motive but overall they’re are a group of assassinations trying to overthrow the king who is a child being control by this fat hog. Anyways did I like the plot? Sure, it was enough to keep... See full review

A Certain Magical Index

biribirii's avatar
Jan 25, 2019

The show wasn’t terrible but I think the fact that the main protagonists like Touma, who was basically useless and Index, who’s one of the most annoying characters ever created are both not great. The reason I rate this show 6/10 is because of the side characters who are 100 times better than the main protagonists. Story: It just didn’t make any sense at first. The whole imagine breaker didn’t click to me until the 5th episode? I thought he was hiding some amazing power but no. He just has an arm that cancels madic and esper power but that’s it. He’s useless after that... See full review

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind

At first I couldn't stand Jojos Bizarre Adventure, I had it in my watchlist but kept putting it off, but then I told myself to bear with it and struggled my way through Part 1. I went into Part 2 expecting greater things since the first part had me on the edge of my seat but I was slightly disapointed, it failed to keep me engaged to the point where a 20 min episode would be done because I just fast forwarded through the unintresting parts. The end of Part 2 was oddly satisfying and I had high hopes for Hamons return, but then I was introduced to a whole new concept: stands. Stands was the missing piece... See full review

All right if you are thinking about watching this because you think the girl in the preview pic is a cutie or because the tags interest you, you’re going to be hit from left field by something intense. It starts out with a beautiful sunrise and dazzling colors as we see our main character but it gets dark quick. This might be a short video but there is a whole lot of action packed into 60 seconds. If you were hoping for a love song, a story about a girl crushing on a guy who doesn’t know she exists, a romantic encounter that pulls at your heart or makes you tear up, you’ll be...

Highschool of the Dead

Seedgraduate's avatar
Jan 25, 2019

HS of the Dead: This was a casual/random watch. Was not recommended; just came across it and had zero expectations. Plot? It's just another zombie story and has been done before. You could draw direct lines from any zombie book, movie and say "this seems very familiar." BUT, this was still fun! This is harem, but makes sense why it is. This is fan service, but not just because...it is applied appropriately. And finally, even in a 12-episode arc, the characters are loveable.

This anime is about a cooking prodigy who sets out to one of the world's most competitive culinary schools via suggestion by his Dad. It feels weird giving this anime a 9. Honestly in the grand scheme of things it probably doesn't deserve one. While I was watching it I was like this anime is a solid 8, but then I started putting in my individual scores for the story and such and when I was done it was nearly all 9's and 10's. It feels even worse cause I just finished full metal alchemist and gave that a 9.5. And that has way more depth and story building then this DX. i'm honestly a horrible rater and you...

The 1st season was very good but the producers ruined it in the 2nd season, putting non-canonical characters that, from my point of view, don't contribute anything interesting, and finally deviating a lot from what really happens in the manga.
Still I recommend it a lot, but you certainly should read the manga also because it's really very good!

Get a message from his decade younger self. Duh. And meeting a girl from highschool doesn’t hurt either. Confidence isn’t something that hits everyone all at once, for some it takes time to grow. When someone is getting pushed around daily it’s no wonder that it takes something extraordinary like a time-traveling message to galvanize the m.c.

I think this is one of those shows that you really love it or, you really hate it. If you're looking for action packed conflict and high adreniline plot this is definately not the show for you. But I started it and it's right up my ally. For one, the show has a more western feel to it. It's creatures are most definately. There are a lot of shows that do stuff with Japanese mythology and monsters. but there are not a lot that have much to do with Faeries and druids. It's a very interesting switch and as a fan of early european folklore I was more then happy to see it. It does have plenty of japanese... See full review

It's a simply fantastic work. From the music along with every moment, in each emotion caused by the different situations in which our protagonists are, it's just magnificent. I don't get tired of this anime, I watched in my childhood and it still pulling out few tears every time I watch it again.

First, I would like to say that I liked this anime probably because I'm in my early teens. Judging from the character design and the lack of violence, I would say that this anime is aimed towards a younger audience. So if you liked One Punch Man, you would probably not like this.  Spoiler free!! Yay!! OVERALL My Hero Academia is a superhero story about a boy learning what being a hero really means, hence the title. It is pretty action packed, andI think the action scenes are pretty good. The pace of the story wasn't too fast or too slow. And the character design was very unique. STORY The... See full review

Been jonesing for some synchronized dancing by high school girls? Look no further, you’ve struck gold. 8 girls sing and dance their hearts out. From the classroom to the middle of the street, they twirl, jazz hand, run in a circle, punch, punch, punch and of course, pose. It’s rather enjoyable watch and listen. You can tell some effort went into choreographing that long dance and designing the different idols. The lack of subtitles makes it difficult to know just what's going on/what they’re singing about though.

This anime is big on a back story but serves you just enough to only keep you interested for me. Don't get me wrong, it's super well done!

I actually heard news that James Cameron is doing a live action for Battle Angel Alita, and I have a soft spot for sci-fi so I thought I would try out the OVAS. I did enjoy it, but at the same time I will be critical about some parts of it. Story- The story begins when Ido finds the remains of a robot and begins to repair the robot that becomes Gally. She quickly becomes accustomed to her new body and her new life. The story doesn't really begin for Gally until she decides to become a robot hunter. There are even storylines that are focused on characters that Gally knows, but I get the feeling that... See full review

So I found this enjoyable to watch. It had a good original plot, and everything carried along just fine.

Good detailed areas and characters, loved the fight scenes. Nothing over the top. Sound was just as good. I am in love with the opening theme. Characters were all, in my opinion, well-developed. Got some background on main characters and mostly everything explained with who was who and why. I was happy with how they turned out. Overall I would... See full review

There doesn't need to be sword fights in every episode, these characters have lives & they're living them.  This is a wonderful well made expansion to the SAO series. Though there isn't enough Asuna in with after e12 the intro & ed don't even show her so as far as e15 unless they creators are holding out to give us a delightful surprise by bringing her into Alice's world, she won't play much of a role in the 2nd 1/2 😕

This anime hits me well for 2 reason's.  I love Mythology especially Greek.  2nd Erika is the best harem number 1.  I like harem's but there is always no defining features of the harem.  Erika is always number one.  I would have been great if they developed the other females as well.  It would have been better if they didn't have so much dialoge for the fights.  If your not into mythology the show's without Erika are probably a 5 out of 10, anything that has Erika in it is an 8 out of 10.

CGI used during the main fight feels like rushed and lazy in execution.

Characters are all what viewer can expect at this point. Once again Goku was made to look completely clueless and goofy and suddenly he turned quite serious. The most ridiculous... See full review

The first season was alright but the show relied heavily on its great characters because the story itself was pretty lackluster. During the OVA's that followed the show actually addresses these issues themselves, mentioning all its own strong points and weaknesses. Almost mockingly telling the viewer to expect more from the show in upcoming season. You'd think the show would try to step up its game after addressing these issues themselves and try to polish up the parts where it knew it was lacking. Well... They did.

You feel the complicated feelings Ishida has towards Nishimiya. You feel the unrevealed pain Nishimiya has because of the treatment she receives. You feel the isolation and renewal of hope Ishida feels throughout the story. And, though it may be triggering to some, you can feel the self-hatred both Nishimiya and Ishida have that cause them to try to commit suicide. This anime conveys the complexity of human emotions...

You decide wether or not you like these types of stories. I will try not to put any serious spoilers in. STORY In the first part of the story (first 12 episodes), everything goes pretty slowly and there isn't very much happening. The characters discover how to time travel by accident, and play around with it. If you were to ask me, I would say that this part is pretty boring. It... See full review

Each girl is then given some time to make a case forthsemves on why you should pick them as your main waifu of the show.

Frame a heart, make it bloody, clean it up, shadow it, blow it up, shield it, rotated it, shatter it, sing about it, shine it up, and then blast the screen with more and more of them. Sparkle up the screen, repeat and repeat. Yeah, that’s all that happens. Seriously. The music’s not all that impressive and the whole thing was probably some person’s first pancake.

A Silent Voice

Jan 22, 2019

A Silent Voice is one of the best modern anime motion pictures to date, at least from my experiences. A Silent Voice teaches us that, above all things, there is redemption for all of us, our levels of redemption may differ, our experiences may differ, but we are all redeemable. If you do not want spoilers, I would not recommend reading this review. In A Silent Voice, a group of teenagers who were once classmates in grade school, come back together after the attempted suicide of their former classmate Shoya Ishida. Before he attempted suicide, he went and tried to reconcile his past disgressions with his... See full review

ReLIFE

Truly an emotional roller coaster. Was hooked on instantly. In the end it reminded me of the game “Lingering Fragance”. Don’t wanna spoil it so I’ll only say I cried a bit at the end. It’s funny, emotional steering and adults can relate to it.

Pokemon Sun & Moon

I've watched most of the pokemon series, and so far this is one of my favourites for some reason. The animation is not as crisp and feels a bit more 'childish'. But that's the only negative thing really. It has more of a laid-back feeling and really relaxes me while watching. It's an easy series, you don't have to think or really follow the story. I like this to watch whilst eating or early in the morning when still a bit sleepy. It gives a positivity boost :)  So it's relaxing, positive and easy entertainment. Not a complex story with multi-layered characters, but it doesn't need to have all of that... See full review

Tsurune

Jan 22, 2019

The first things you really notice about Tsurune are how great it looks and sounds. This is despite the fact that, for a sports show, Tsurune is quietly-paced and shines a bigger light on the athletes instead of the sport. And it makes sense too: kyudo, or traditional archery, is a sport that demands patience, focus, and discipline, which is why it’s great that the series was able to properly relay all these qualities through its technical aspects. If only the same could be said for everything else. Tsurune starts strong: when we begin the series, we meet main character Minato, a former... See full review

We Rent Tsukumogami

Franconator's avatar
Jan 22, 2019

Imagine running a rental shop where the objects come alive whenever they like to talk about your problems and gossip among themselves, as they pick apart all your life choices and offer unwanted observations and insight. Think Toy Story, but with a more traditional slant to it, where the sentient objects do more than have existential crises about being mere playthings for people. That’s this show in a nutshell, where the title describes objects that come to life after years of being cherished by their human owners. And because the story has to go somewhere, the spiritual tsukumogami aren’t all... See full review

SSSS.Gridman

Watching SSSS.Gridman is like biting into an okay sandwich. You’re sure there’s filling inside – that’s what everyone who’s tried it says – but then it turns out you’ll have to bite through a lot of the boring bread first before getting to it. And what bland, stale stuff the bun is, so even after you get to the promised filling and find it isn’t so bad after all, you’ll end up wondering why you had to go through so much flour before getting to it. There’s a substantial story here that's packed with teaching moments about the dangers of... See full review
