Seitokai Yakuindomo (Anime) add

Before you go all harem on this show, just think back to your blooming adolescent and teenage years. For boys and girls alike, wasn't your mind constantly filled with inappropriate thoughts? There wasn't much of a trigger to set you off; testosterone and estrogen are powerful little demons. So instead of marketing those stupidly impossible innocent anime girls other series seem so fond of, why not appeal potty humor to a wider audience that each individual has, at one point, experienced? I may not know much about how the opposite gender thinks, but for us guys, certain thoughts flit about our heads like angry bees, read more

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (Anime) add
5 of 19 people found this review helpful
 
What makes a Gundam so darn fascinating? Maybe because instead of shooting each other with a rifle or machine gun, we literally extend our body into a mechanized suit that does the shooting for us. On an unprecedented scale. I was introduced to Gundam when I was much younger, and the appeal never went away. That sharp nagging of "man, wouldn't it be just dandy to control one of those?" as powerful as ever. Mobile Suit Gundam 00 far exceeds entertainment value as well as drama, music, and other outstanding characteristics.

Story: 9/10

Set in the (almost) near-future, humanity has formed into three relatively accurate blocs: read more

Highschool of the Dead (Anime) add
20 of 50 people found this review helpful
 
For all the haters out there, look at this in terms of a man's point of view. What two things do men love the most? Sex and violence. Lo and behold, we have Highschool of the Dead, plenty of almost-Hentai quality girls mixed with shotgun-toting main characters, blasting away while the camera pans crazily between cleavage and the dying undead. What MORE could a man or a teenager want? A hero and heroines (all attractive), all armed to the teeth, all fighting for their lives, and for sex. Ahh, what I see isn't a total fan-service failure, but instead a masterpiece for the testosterone-prone.

Toradora!: Bentou no Gokui (Anime) add
25 of 72 people found this review helpful
 
I had just finished Toradora! When I did some research and learned that special had just come out only two months prior. Excited, and since the original anime was so darn good, I quickly watched it, thinking it was going to be, at the very least, AWESOME. However, it turned out to be much more disappointing than I originally had anticipated. In fact, it made me almost cry - not with tears of sympathy or sadness or humor, but just plain BORING.

Story: 7/10

Presumedly taking place a couple weeks after Toradora! ended, it started off logically but fell flat on its face in the first read more

Toradora! (Anime) add

Toradora! at first seems like a cliche romance series. There's been so many, it seems, over the years; it would have to take one outrageously different (yet subtly very simple and not complex) story to grab a person's attention and keep the viewer wanting more. After all, it's been done hundreds of times, and 99.9% of the time they end up corny or just plain stupid. I'm happy to say that Toradora! is a fresh take on a romance story, but with a major twist: the main characters aren't your typical main characters, and their interactions go above and beyond what's usually expected.

Story: 10/10

I remember when I finished Steins;Gate. I was left yearning for more, that last speck of satisfaction and glowing epicness that just made me.....feel perfect. But knowing that Steins;Gate was so epic, I didn't want it to go on, simply because sequels usually, quite frankly, suck. But then again, this wasn't a Hollywood movie; no, that's because it was so much more. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: Steins;Gate, tying up loose ends.

As usual, the story is stellar. Told perfectly and fluidly, it never misses a beat and keeps up its slightly fast-paced, yet humorous plot points. The entire time, I had a grin read more

Black★Rock Shooter (OVA) (Anime) add
8 of 31 people found this review helpful
 
A lot of movies and TV shows nowadays are all "let's put as MUCH crap as we can to fit into a screen per millisecond of video. That'll really engage the audience and put us at the top of the entertainment industry." Black Rock Shooter instead starts off on the right foot by mixing plentiful, smooth action scenes with a daily school girl life, making the transition seem sudden and exhilarating.

The story, though a bit obvious and somewhat weird, started off rather slow. Really slow. Like half of 40 minutes was literally a couple average days of school. But let's not stay bogged down read more

Durarara!! Specials (Anime) add
34 of 58 people found this review helpful
 
Crazy, how a couple of extra episodes can really change your perceptions on said series. Episodes 12.5 and 25 were EXCELLENT. Specials are what specials are; don't come in expecting perfection and excellence in every millisecond. However, these specials did manage to satisfy my feelings over the original anime and even notched up my enjoyment that much more.

This time, the story was consistant and enjoyable. It wasn't overdone, nor too slow and boring. 12.5 was merely a comedic episode, a way to diffuse the tension from the original series, told from an interesting point of view. As usual, the story isn't told from the typical read more

Durarara!! (Anime) add
8 of 23 people found this review helpful
 
Expect the unexpected: that phrase doesn't come truer than in Durarara! This anime starts and leads up to an amazing story, backplot, twists and turns that'll leave your stomach in knots. However, towards the end the story falls flat on its face, devoid of deeper meaning or any sort of audience connection as the inner theme prematurely bursts out, forcing you down the gullet of paranoia and a little disappointment.

The story was told in such a fascinating way, it was hard to grasp at first. It simply wasn't told from a main protagonists point of view, but split among multiple major and minor characters that read more

Black★Rock Shooter (Anime) add

Hatsune Miku strikes again, but not with a leek; a music video, albeit with a darker and more ominous sort of tone. I've always loved Miku; that's actually how I was introduced into the world of animated characters and such. The strange, mellifluous flowing of Miku's electronic voice always appealed to me, and here it sounded strangely lucid and creepy. Since this technically isn't an anime and simply the precursor to the OVA and the new show itself, this review isn't going to be long.

Story: Sounds depressing. Miku really belts out a sad lament. That's really it.

The art was colorful (yet dark) and the swirling read more
