Fruits Basket 1st Season

Jun 30, 2021

As a beloved manga and original anime that began my lifelong love of anime, this is butchered. unwatchable.  hoaky fluff drama that focused completely on the sparkly animation and removed all of the depth of one of the best stories ever told.  Told in the style of a reverse harem wanting young girls to swoon over the boys' hair blowing in the wind and chiseled abs. Removed all diginity from the story.  What a tragedy.  This is a great example of how the studio alone can butcher an anime by the way they tell the story.  Though they copied exact scenes from the original, the...

Aldnoah.Zero 2nd Season

Nov 29, 2015

spoilers ahoy. I really think that the second season was not supposed to be produced- that they expected to finish it in 12 episodes and that was their ending.  I think that because in the first episode of the second season, they undid everything they did in the finale of season 1.  They brought everyone back to life and then it became a soap opera- a girl in a coma, now she loses her memories, a girl in a wheelchair whose in love with the boy who's in love with her bed ridden sister and on and on and on.  There were a lot of moments in this season where I thought, wow they did that just to...

Aldnoah.Zero

Nov 29, 2015

spoilers ahead! I was so impressed by this anime.  I stay away from mechas as a rule, but I fell in love with the soundtrack when I heard it on 8 tracks and decided to watch the first episode.  It's exceedingly rare to find an anime that has good animation, good music, AND a good story. I get real nervous watching an anime that has great animation or music because they always end up being dumb stories.  It's as if the studio just made the anime as a portfolio piece or only cared about getting people intrigued enough to watch but just didn't care about the actual story! Aldnoah Zero has... See full review

Maid-sama!

Aug 2, 2015

Incredibly mediocre for a series that seems quite popular, always mentioned when someone asks for a good romance to watch.  The story was perhaps the least interesting of any anime I've seen.  Absolutely nothing happened.  Every episode was a minisode, filler, dull.  Nothing amounted to anything save for one of course which was the worst part to watch.  It is essentially a story of a guy forcing himself on a girl who eventually caves.  There is no develpment whatever from Misaki.  Her secret is never revealed, she never wraps things up with the love triangle and she never...

Tokyo Ghoul

Oct 3, 2014

WHOA. I MEAN WHOA. ok so the first episode was really the only one i loved until the last one.  the first one had me thinking it would be a psychological thriller with kanecki battling against eating people and what it means to be a ghoul and things like that. it was somewhat about that, but mostly it was just a cops vs ghouls story which i didn't love, and honestly i felt like kanecki was one of the minor characters.  then the last episode happened and i want to vomit but i still was sitting there stunned at the power of what just happened.  talk about 0-60.  i guess it was effective...

School Days

Sep 25, 2014

I read somewhere that this was widely considered to be the worst anime of all time, and that is why I watched it.  So going in knowing that there was a very grisly ending, I didn't think this was nearly as bad as all that!  I would not watch it again because I absolutely hated the main characters itou and sekai, and towards the end the drama was just too absurd with itou sleeping with everyone all at once.  But really, this was just a soap opera and it will keep you watching even if you are bored because it's kind of repetitive. a lot of the same things have to happen over and over before...

Kokoro Connect

Sep 19, 2014

nope.  didn't like this one at all.  the drama was the cheesiest ive seen in an anime i think.  every single demon they were struggling with was like the most cliche or stupid thing. or maybe it was just in the presentation? i don't know, but the whole thing had me scoffing and rolling my eyes and shaking my head.  I feel like a teenager who has never watched an anime before would think this is the best. but for me, i thought it was just terribly boring with stupid, hoaky, and abrupt drama with a very unresolved ending. the only reason i was holding on was to find out what heartseed was...

Deadman Wonderland

Sep 8, 2014

This was pretty bad BUT i read the manga so my expectations were higher than most.  I feel like that made me able to keep up a lot more because honestly this was probably the most confusing anime I've ever seen without my backstory from the manga. I couldn't believe how much they left unexplained and characters that were building slowly that never amounted to anything.  The dub was pretty good, it's one of the only animes I've ever watched in english, however I thought Shiro's voice was possibly the most annoying I've ever heard in an anime which kind of ruined it because she was the main...

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Jul 8, 2014

I really enjoyed this one! Usually when I watch these movies, I just can't get into them and I keep checking how much time is left until it's over because they just don't grip me. But this story was pretty compelling. And unlike many other anime movies, the plot twist did not strike me as abrupt/awkward/wtf. It was simply striking, I just froze and was shocked at the implications. It got emotional and it all tied together, it was just very good. And I don't understand all of it.  Normally I would go straight to google and find out what the ending means.  But this one I think I want to keep for... See full review

Kimi ni Todoke - From Me To You 2nd Season

Jul 7, 2014

was a more innocent, tender love story ever told? if so, i don't want to watch it because the warm feels will make my chest implode.  some people i know will criticize this anime because it is somewhat shallow in plot, maybe boring.  but i really found this anime to be very charming. everytime shouta and sawako blushed at each other i swear i started fangirling so hard i couldn't breath. maybe you have to be a sucker for romance to enjoy this, ha! i also have always wished that love like this existed. there is no rationale to it, two people are just so precious to each other that they see colors...

No. 6

Jun 5, 2014

I really really liked this anime and I don't know why. I can only guess there's something specific to my soul that was touched here. Because on the surface, I can really see why most people would not like this.  It's one of those animes that is basically split in half- the first half is one thing and the second half the whole thing just goes flying off the rails. You think you have started to figure out where they're going with this and you're excited to see what's going to happen and then it's like they took 4 or 5 of their ideas for an ending and just threw them all in there. so yeah, the ending...

Nana

May 25, 2014

ahhh this anime drove me nuts! i got through it quickly because it was a total soap opera and you had to know what happened next with all the relationship drama llama yada yada, but it left me very unsatisfied.  I thought all the  crazy things that were happening were important, like at the end it would all mean something or it all had a reason, but the way it ended, it just kind of trickled off.  So I guess you could say this anime is an accurate depiction of adult life- important relationships trickle off, pride keeps you from the most important things and people, having to decide between...

Honey and Clover

May 6, 2014

i'm not sure how i would rate this anime. i did like it- it was very unique to me. but it didn't tie things together very well- which may have been the point because of this- this anime to me was a very realistic depiction of what adult life love and connection is like.  it is not all happily ever afters and if you try hard enough everything will come together, the answers will come in time... it's about just getting in there and getting your hands dirty and trying to figure it out with no guarantees- all of it. life and meaning and love and what to do with all of it.  this anime doesn't give you...

Attack on Titan

Apr 27, 2014

best anime, best anything i have ever seen. so the easy stuff out of the way- the soundtrack is unbelievable and incredibly unique as there are a lot of english lyrics.The instrumentals are amazing too, just chillling, they make the whole show. I could listen to the whole soundtrack without skipping a song and not dislike a single one. The animation! Amazing! During the battle scenes I could not look away! There was some just some beautiful beautiful art in here and the angles they shot from were stunning, it flowed perfectly! And the story was truly compelling.  Every single episode was totally...
