This movie is pretty shit: the plot is pretty much nonsense and half the cast is pointless and irritatind. But the animation is good, so it's good-looking shit. The fights are ridiculously oversexualized - although for the final battle (which has some ridiculous S&M stuff) that actually makes it kinda funny. Speaking of fights, they added some fights at moments where a discussion would have worked just as well, since none of the parties were intent on killing the other. Music is mediocre - not bad, but not exactly good either and most of the time unfitting. Overall: I recommend only watching this... See full review
Wild Cardz / JaJa Uma! Quartet is a fantasy action anime about 4 magical girls who have to fight a randomly appearing gigantic chess piece. I say randomly here, and I really mean randomly, as in the way every character or story element is introduced randomly. Of course, a 50-minute movie doesn't have the luxury to expand too much on every little thing, but there should at least be some basics: the start of the show made me think it was a sci fi show, so the sudden magic was a bit odd. And speaking of the magic, the way it works isn't explained either. Most fantasy series at least have some... See full review
This was really confusing, and some research led me to the reason for that: apparently there's a manga and a light novel which respectively tell the story of the ones who go to the past and the story of those who stay in the "present", and you need to read and watch the 3 entries to get the entire story. But then the manga and LN don't have a translation so that's impossible... As for the OVA: the story is really all over the place. Sending a couple of girls in high school uniform to the future so they can try and save the world might seem like a fantastic plan (it isn't), but nothing... See full review
I liked the otherworldly feeling and most of the comedy, but it also had some boring moments.See full review
This was mostly boring when it wasn't actively annoying me. However, it also got some better moments and the ending worked well imo, so I'll give it a 5/10.See full review
For me personally, Flip Flappers earned a couple of titles: Anime of the Season in Fall 2016, Anime of the Year 2016 and, most notably, Surprise of the Year 2016. Because I really didn't expect to enjoy this show to this extent. I mean, looking back at the fact that I almost dropped it after episode 2 still makes me shudder at the thought of missing this experience. - I tried to keep spoilers at a minimum - Story So, what the flip is this anime about anyway? Well simply put, it's about the "normal girl" Cocona, who gets dragged to a weird alternate world called Pure... See full review
Since this anime is so underrated and the only other review has rated it badly too, I figured it's my job to advertise this anime a little: it's really not as bad as it may seem at first glance. In fact, it's pretty glorious. Gakuen Handsome is a short episode comedy series based on a visual novel, which parodies common tropes found in BL manga/anime/VNs etc. Story and characters It's hard to talk about the story when it's really just a setting for jokes. In any case, a boy transferring to an all-boys school and learning about (gay) love does not sound all that spectacular. But it's a good setting... See full review
This was actually pretty nice, although some eps in the middle were kinda boring. It has some nice comedy in it, the story is actually pretty good, and Pupipo is a cute odd thing. 7/10See full review
Some predictable parts, some rushed parts (especially the ending :/ ) and at times a bit too childish for the themes present, but not entirely unenjoyable.See full review
uhm... urgh... where to begin with this crap? the lolis, the incest, or the harem shit?
anyway, the only good part was the submarine scene so a 2/10 seems about right
A man walks into a bar, has sex, and leaves. And that's about all I can tall about the "story" here. Some of the visual references to dicks and vags were funny, and the artstyle was rather unique, but that's about it. 3/10See full review
This is a nice short movie. It was slow and relaxing without boring me. Making all side characters animals was a nice twist, the music was nice and I loved the artstyle. You could say the story doesn't really go anywhere, but I didn't really mind that and I didn't expect much in the first place since it's so short. Overall, an 8/10.See full review
Noblesse: The Beginning of Destruction is a 37-minute prequel to the popular webcomic Noblesse. That might make you think it's ok to watch this first, but I would not recommend doing that: it's more an "extra" for the people who read the manhwa, rather than a stand-alone movie. Story and characters The OVA shows why Raizel and Muzaka ended up fighting, and how their fight went. There's really not all that much information given: if you're going in without any knowledge, the presence of werewolves and Nobles must be really confusing. Then... See full review
huge disappointment after season one: season two has less cool stuff and worldbuilding, and more harem shenanigans. The antagonists are boring, and the sdf is still OP, making confrontations boring (seeing them sweep through the enemy is cool for a couple of times, but gets boring fast)See full review

While the animation/artwork and sound were very nice, I found the story to be a bit boring at times. The "twist" also fell flat imo. The character interactions were nice thoughSee full review
Before starting this anime, I wasn't actually expecting anything good. Heck, it was chosen as an event for the Damn, That Anime is Bad club for a reason, and going by the only two reviews this site had at the time - one scoring it 1.5/10, the other 5/10 - and the average AP-score of less than 1.8/5, you shouldn't expect anything grand. Add to that the ridiculous premise, and your hopes for anything good would probably be very small or even non-existent (unless you think tons of sexual content automatically makes an anime...

When I saw this anime existed, I was really happy. Not necessarily because I'm such a huge fan of the Noblesse manhwa (I like it enough to keep reading it, but don't think it's all that amazing). No, I was more excited about this because there are lots of good manhwa/webtoons that I'd love to see animated, and this could open a number of doors for the future if it's popular enough. So I would love to advertise this anime... but I honestly can't do that. This OVA is a huge failure which is only good for those who are reading the manhwa already. The OVA lasts about 30 minutes. Even less if you take the OP... See full review
Story and characters Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou can be summed up in one word: uneventful. It shows us slices of the life of Alpha, a female android who lives in the countryside and has a café. The most exciting thing she does all day is make coffee, after which she drinks it herself because there are no customers anyway... and yes, I'm serious here. The first 6 minutes of episode 1 show how Alpha gets up and makes coffee while some girl is traveling towards her. The next 4 minutes are the arrival of said girl, who then delivers a package and a message. After that they make some... See full review
Perfect Blue is an anime movie that has been on my “want to watch” list for ages, but now I finally got around to watching it*. And right now, I want to punch my past self in the face and tell him to watch this asap. You should do it too. Story and characters “When popular pop idol Mima decided to retire from her group, Cham, and become an actress, she had no idea that one person's obsession would soon spiral out of control. With death threats, letter bombs and a forged website which details her every move, Mima finds herself slowly becoming trapped in a nightmare she can't seem... See full review
"Hey, let's see if we can find something worse than Marse of Destruction".
Skelter Heaven is one of those anime that are legendary for being bad, but in my experience it went far beyond the level of "bad", straight to the realm of "If I had the Dragon Balls, I'd wish I could unsee this".
The problems already start to arise in the first seconds: we get a shot of 1 minute of the earth, while we're forced to listen to some random noises - you may be inclined to mute the damn thing there, and you probably should.
After the Earth-shot? An OP with an ok song, but ugly... See full review
Koe de Oshigoto belongs to the crap I only watched because of forum events (in this case, the Daily Anime Marathon). This was an anime where I was really tempted to throw my laptop out of the window so I wouldn't have to watch it anymore. Allow me to explain what I mean: The story revolves around Kanna, a high-school girl who has just become 16. Her older sister asks her to become a voice actor in an eroge (a porn game). Kanna refuses because it's too embarassing and because minors shouldn't do that kind of thing, but she gets... See full review
Super Kuma-san / Mister Super-Bear is on the weirder side of the spectrum of the anime I've seen so far. The premise seems very childish, yet more bizarre and somewhat darker elements are added to it.
The story is set in a park in a roundabout, where children come to play or watch a clown and his blue walking, talking stuffed bear. That idea may remind you of Winnie the Pooh, but contrary to Winnie, Mister Bear (or Kuma-san) is a superhero "in secret". His alias? Mister Super-Bear! Once transformed (meaning he rearranges his scarf), he goes out to save the day and stop evil! His... See full review
Nozoki Ana aka A Peephole is a 42-minute long OVA (or 55 minutes if you watch the extended version) based on a manga of 13 volumes. I dropped the manga at 2 volumes because it had a boring porn-story with some extremely dumb and equally boring characters. No need to worry about that though, because what little story the manga had, it wasn't put in the anime. The few interesting things in it were just left out, and all that we've got left is sex, masturbation, rape and the obligatory beach scene. Oh, and also boobs and panties. Almost forgot to mention those... Apart from that there's little... See full review
The Five Star Stories is an OVA that came out in 1989, based on a still "ongoing" manga that started in 1986 (for as far as you can call it ongoing, with only one volume being released in over 10 years). Given those circumstances, you can only expect the OVA to be an introduction to the series: it only adapts 1 Japanese volume (or 3 of the North-American volumes). So, is the story here any good then? Simply put: I found it to be one big teaser. We get teasers for big mecha fights, teasers for an epic war, teasers for intricate political debates and even teasers for cool fights... See full review
Story and characters As the synopsis states, Black Rock Shooter is a story about two dimensions/universes/worlds. In one, dark, universe, there is the cool fighting loli called Black Rock Shooter, fighting against other people. We get to see a bit of what this world looks like, but apart from fights nothing much happens (except at the ending, but i'm not going to spoil that) You may ask why they're fighting? The thing is, I don't know. It's never made clear why they're fighting. Personal grudge? War? Hero trying to slay the demon lord lady? We don't know anything about this world, nor about the...

Well, this was a worthless special. It's just an ad for the future releases of the DVD/BD of Komori-san Can't Decline! and the already released and upcoming volumes of the manga. While we are shown some scenes from the series again, the VAs talk about all that uninteresting stuff. Total waste of time.See full review
Komori-san Can't Decline is a series of shorts based on the original 4-koma manga by the same guy who made I can't understand what my husband is saying ; which also got 2 series of shorts.

Some anime just really deserve a review, so I decided to write one for Rescue Me!, a 1-episode OVA based on the original manga by Yoshiharu Makita, a guy you might know from one of his earlier works... namely 6 hentai manga. This + the super interesting premise of the show sets the tone for the glory that is this OVA.

Area 88 was originally a manga series started in 1979, and got a 3-episode OVA-series in 1985-1986, which got lots of good reviews. Then, in 2004, there came a 12-episode anime series which people seem to just ignore, or at least I had never heard about it. That is, until Santa came along and put this on my watch list...
When I saw the synopsis of Area 88, I was reminded of Top Gun (which I liked a lot): an "ace pilot" is sent to the military, and then we get some air battles, some "slice of life in the military", and some other drama. However, Area 88 falls short in the execution... See full review
