Every season we seem to get that one show that has all the buzz and word of mouth about it from the anime community. This time most of that was centered on this anime, Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai. I will admit that from the first time I saw details of this show pop up I was not to thrilled with its prospects, but the hype over the show was too much to ignore and I decided to give it a go. In the end I am left wonder just what was all the fuss about?

Working!! (Anime) add
124 of 250 people found this review helpful
 
Working!! is an example of an anime that’s been done countless times before and will be again. Admittedly I was expecting this but was attracted to the series cute looking characters and the slice of life pacing. While the series gets off to a slow start things did manage to improve greatly only to end in the dustbin of history thanks to the douchebaggery of its narcissistic cast of asshats.

The premise of Working!! puts us into the inner workings of a family restaurant. The employees run the gambit of strangeness and mental issues to setup all the outstanding and original comedy read more

Kämpfer (Anime) add
185 of 276 people found this review helpful
 
I really love all of the crazy implausible story concepts anime is capable of delivering us. Kämpfer is no exception, as it combines many time honored and tested themes of mahou shoujo-esque transformations, girls fighting each other, gender confusion, and lesbianism. Mix in plenty of service and a clichéd harem of the usual personality types and you have an anime that basically been made a hundred times before. And a lot better too. Even though, I still found myself inexorability drawn to this title because of its fabulous seiyuu cast.

The premise for Kämpfer is a bit unique. While it shares read more

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! (Anime) add
391 of 597 people found this review helpful
 
When news of this year's new shows began surfacing, Kaichou wa Maid-sama was near the top of the ones I was looking forward to most. I had read a little of the manga and always found it to be funny. Last year had featured a pretty good run of romance anime and this looked poised to continue that run. Despite the series' fabulous artwork and a lot of great comedy, it is unfortunately a bit of a disappointment.

The premise behind Maid-sama has an initially interesting hook. Misaki Ayuzawa is the newly elected student council president at a mostly male high school. read more

Strike Witches 2 (Anime) add

Our favorite flying witches are back to liberate Europe from the Neuroi scourge! Without wearing any pants. For those of us who saw the original Strike Witches (or Pantsu Witches as I like to say) anime you had to know what you were going to be in store for. A lot of fan service, cute girls, and panty shots. But a funny thing happened with this over the top and gratuitous ecchi anime, it’s a hell of a lot of fun to watch!

Much like the original, Strike Witches 2 features a plot you could have written out on a cocktail napkin. read more

Bungaku Shoujo (Anime) add

When the teaser preview special for Bungaku Shoujo was released earlier this year I was a bit tepid in my enthusiasm for this project. It looked quite lovely and it featured several of my favorite seiyuu talents, so I made a point to give this a try when it finally became available. As someone without any knowledge of the original light novels, I found this film to be mostly directionless and confusing and in the end only a very average experience.

Bungaku Shoujo or Literature Girl is about a young girl, Touka Amano who eats books. Yes she literally eats books. She read more

Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku wo (Anime) add
175 of 249 people found this review helpful
 
I have long held to the view that an anime series, as bad as it may be can’t possibly deserve a rating of 1. Movies and OVA's yes, but a series had to at least be good enough to convince someone to allow it to be aired on television and because they are long enough that usually you can at least find ONE redeeming quality in them. Well sadly I must revise that opinion, as I had not subjected myself yet to Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku wo. That’s not hyperbole either, I mean it when I say "subjected myself", this anime was read more

Telepathy Shoujo Ran (Anime) add

Telepathy Shoujo Ran is a series that had intrigued me for a while but I had always made excuses not to start it. Because of my interest in it, I did come in with a certain level of expectation and while it certainly is on a whole a pretty solid show the ride was a bit uneven.

The overall story in Telepathy is both the best and worst part of the series. While there really isn’t an overriding plot, the general theme is pretty interesting and in many ways unique from most anime of this kind. The story centers on Ran, a seemingly read more

Usagi-chan de Cue!! (Anime) add
77 of 105 people found this review helpful
 
You have to hand it to Japan; they are at the very least unique when it comes to dreaming up absurd story concepts and then finding someone to actually produce them. The show in question is Usagi-chan de Cue!!, a moderately bad to horrible ecchi anime that combines the anime staples of shounen fighting, harems, and impossible breasts all topped with a pair of bunny ears.

The plot is ridiculous and silly, even by anime standards. Nor does it really make any sense either. It’s not that this really matters, because clearly what it is about is gigantic tits, tank tops and low read more

Kobato. (Anime) add
273 of 346 people found this review helpful
 
I have to admit to being won over by Kobato before ever seeing the first frame of film. One look at the artwork for this series and Kobato's beautiful clothing and settings and I knew this was going to be something for me. Thankfully I was also rewarded with an enjoyable and heartwarming story. While Kobato doesn’t exactly break any new ground, it’s a light hearted series that should make anyone smile, with just a touch of drama to keep it interesting.

Kobato herself begins as a bit of a mystery, tasked with a mission of healing the hearts of others in order read more
