Ippo Makunouchi... the most evil villain who ever lived.

This anime is perfect. If not perfect, then damn near close. It's easy to be skeptical, sounds ridiculous, I know. Over 70 episodes and still gets straight tens? Well believe it, it's real. The sounds and music are epic, memorable, and perfectly on point. The art mixed with the sounds gives real weight to the punches. The characters are nearly all unforgettable and unique. Lastly, the story is so well put together and balanced that I frequently reminisce about the first episode, decide to watch it, and the next thing I know I've re-watched the whole series. read more

To view Battle of the Gods is to see something truly unique: a Dragonball Z full length movie that is completely consistent with the series, with a story designed by Akira Toriyama himself. The feel of the movie is unlike any other, the interactions between the characters is truly classic and feels every bit like the series. Rather than a random event out of time disregarding all continuity, everything feels genuine; because it IS genuine.

So why isn't this movie hands down awesome? Why, actually, is it disappointing and substandard? Mostly because of the art, partially because of the failure at epicness, and a little read more

I normally don't give shonens great scores, but this one was an exception. Like most other shonens this show is all about the battles, has a hot head/innocent main protagonist with special natural talent, the explanations of how powers work start out with some form of depth and consistency but become less so as the episode count rises, there all are whole arcs of filler... it's got a lot of the run of the mill stuff.

However, it's got other things that you might not normally find. The character relationships are well-developed and the show focuses a lot more on feelings than you might see read more

School Days (Anime) add

I went into School Days without knowing anything about. I hadn't even heard of it before. I will tell you now, I almost stopped watching halfway through. The main character is unlike one that I have ever seen; a selfish d-bag. You will hate him. You will hate him so hard your brain will explode.

That is where the brilliance of the series truly lies. The story, the drama, the character development... rather than setting up the story for a conclusion, they set up a desired conclusion in your mind. Then deliver it.

This is a show that will feel uncomfortable. It is a show read more

This anime is an adaptation of a visual novel of the same name produced by Key Visual Arts studio. Clannad takes you through the school life of Tomoya Okazaki, a troubled teen who's idea of attending class is showing up at lunch, then sleeping the rest of the day away. The show incorporates all main arcs of the visual novel into one comprehensive storyline that builds and develops wonderfully on itself. In fact, the writing behind this anime is what makes it a masterpiece.

The writing is such that as the story progresses, you will progress along with it. You will feel emotion along with the read more
