As a massive fan of the first Eureka SeveN series, hearing that their was a sequel couldn't have made me more happier. Elements of Eureka SeveN AO?, Action? check, Mystery? Check, Eureka? Check, Renton? Who knows. Romance? None =/. Not sure why Bones never incorporated the romance element, one of the main reason why the first series was a big hit Renton and Eureka's romance. Instead AO has A LOT of action, like there will be a fight scene in every single episode, I guess for those of you who like action its a plus, but Eureka SeveN is really in my opinion suppose to be a romance anime, well at least thats why I love it anyway.
The story, is well very mysterious, be prepared to be confused, and not know what the hell is happening between episodes 1-16 or something. A new enemy is introduced the "Secrets", rather than fighting Humans this time, the enemy is some kind off Alien life form or some shit with a very unknown objective. After watching 2/3 of the series, they kinda reveal what the "Secrets" objective is but its unclear if its true or false. But what i think makes Eureka SeveN AO great is that new mysterious continue to pop up which adds to the suspense of the story, although I can't wait until they get solved, to many mysterious creates to much confusion =/. But I guess with so many mysteries it kinda forces the viewer to make links with the first series before the answer appears, I for one thought a lot of theories on what may be happening. Each time a link the first series appeared I was like 'OMG OMG, Thats from the first series!" couldn't help but be thrilled.
Bones did a great job on the art it was definitely Eureka SeveN standard, the art is incredibly similar to the first series with some character design actually looking a lot like some characters from the first series, for example Gazelle and Holland except for the skin colour there basically the same lol. Eureka adopts a more mature and adult look with clothes similar to what Diane thurston wore in the first series. The new Nirvash looks kinda chunky and big, kinda looks a bit weird in my opinion. Whats quite cool is that each "Secret" actually look different, unlike the first series where the enemy IFO and ships was always the same.
The sound?, This is an Eureka SeveN sequel people, of course its going to be amazing, is what i thought, Don't get me wrong its not bad, the opening and ending songs are amazing, especially the first ending song that is REALLY good. Only thing i'm disappointed about is the OST, do you guys still remember in Eureka SeveN, where each scene basically had a different OST? or at least there was a lot of different OST's. Well in AO, this wasn't really the case, the fight scenes all use the same exact OST, the sad/happy scenes really only uses like the same 3-4 OST. Man Bones whats up with that, in Eureka SeveN there was like 4-5 different OST for the fight scene, even now i still remember the tecno tunes from the first season, or Eureka's theme song that makes you think of literally all the sad parts of the first season.
Remember how you loved Eureka in the first series? Well your going to probably hate the main female character Naru in the second series, without the Romance Element, it literally feels like 2 childhood friend having a different opinion that leads to a massive fight, and Naru was the cause of it all. Even now i don't even know why the hell shes acting that way towards Ao, he's doing everything to try and help her but she's all like "OHH NOO i don't want your help, i want Truth, because he's my giant" not trying to sound weird but that is literally the reason >.> . I REALLY hope this shit clears up soon because its pretty annoying seeing Ao get constantly rejected. But Naru is a VERY mysterious character, currently after watching 17 episodes NOTHING has came up on what Naru's objective is, all we know is that she wants Ao for something, and that Scub Corlian accepted her or some shit.
Like father, Like son, Ao like Renton, both are amazing pilots, both are clumsy and easily charmed/embarrassed, both have that scaredy cat feel towards them. But unlike Renton, Ao is probably way more rebellious and straightforward with things and is much more stubborn and as a 12 year old kid, Ao is surprisingly coping REALLY well, remember all the mental break downs Renton had? Ao didn't have as much, and his break downs weren't as exaggerated compare to Rentons.
A lot of the side characters do nothing but to add to the mystery of the story, Just where is Eureka? and what happened to her?, which leads to a LOT of speculation but it does suck that there isn't a lot of character development with the sider characters for example there is hardly any development of the Pied Piper crew, except for Rebecka and Ivica the rest of the crew is basically not introduced... Kinda sucks, but i guess they don't have enough episodes for that kind off development plus they kinda made up for it by introducing Team Goldilocks.
But I feel that with all the characters in AO, theres not really any attachment towards any of them, Even with Ao, I don't really give a shit about him and actually care more about Eureka who has like a air time of less than 20 minutes.. Theres just not enough development with the main character and he doesn't really make you feel sorry for him. Even though he lost his mum at a young age theres just not enough sadness around that topic, plus nothing has really happened that will make you sympathise with him except for losing his mum at a young age. Remember how when Renton first see his sister, THAT had a big impact. When Ao first meets Eureka, that DID NOT have a big impact.
Nevertheless this anime has provided me with plenty of enjoyment, it serves to fill up the hole that was left behind after season one finished. There is slight comedy scenes in this, not much but when they appear they are pretty funny. The fight scenes are pretty well made, really shows Ao's power over everyone else like with Eureka and Renton, literally every fight seen Fleur and Elena are completely useless, they either get shot down straight away, or their units can't actually fight that kind of Secret... The best scenes for me are when things from the first series are mentioned/appear. When Eureka appeared for the first time, her entrance was the most nostalgic thing you will ever see, i just remember going "omg, it can't be, thats nirvash, thats gekko go OMG WHY IS IT HERE?!?!?!?!" I really can't wait when Renton will appear really looking forward to what his new look might be.
For me this anime overall is ok, its nothing compared to the first, I guess you can say i'm biased due to the fact i love the first series, but the only thing i'm actually looking forward to is the bits with Eureka and Renton in the rest seems kinda pointless, it is still good enough to act as the sequel of Eureka SeveN due to its action and art. I think Bones focused way to much on what the current trend is for anime, just having loads of "Action", and instead neglected the things that made the 1st series great. read more

1) Makes you cry
2) Sleep deprived
3) Leaves a hole in your heart after you finish it
Anohana tells of a story of friends trying to cope with the death of their dear friend, but really to make it short its just a bunch of friends making up and learning to forgive each other after something tragic has happened. This anime is pretty impressive, they can basically tell each characters perspective of the day menma died quite detailed in just 11 episodes, like it'll be hard to actually find something that you didn't understand. I can guarantee you, that you will cry at least once or at least get very emotional, oh and i mean VERY emotional.
For an Anime released in 2011, it was expected to have art that good, it will be surprising if it didn't. I did however liked how they sometimes used a blue outline on the characters during the scenes about the past, i thought that was a pretty nice touch and a unique way to do things.
The sound was pretty well made, for instance the overlapping of the ending song with the last 1-2 mins of the episode created that cliff hanger feeling at the end of each episode, hence why i said you will be sleep deprived you basically forced to finish the anime in 1 day =P. The opening and ending of Anohana is pretty well done with the video not spoiling much about the anime, the OP and ED songs is one those songs where you find yourself going on youtube and listening to it loads. Well that was the case for me anyway.
Each member of the "Super peach buster" had their own difficulties while coping with the death of Menma's death which generally caused conflict between the main characters. What made this anime truly amazing was the relationship between the characters, it had everything, jealously? check, romance? check, fights? check. But what made it great was despite the disputes, they always end up making up with each other, even if they witness something as weird as someone cross dressing as Menma.... that was truly a "What the fuck" moment.
Ano Hana will do 3 things to you, it'll made you laugh, cry and very pissed off. Examples of where your going to be pissed off? When the characters ignorance or naivety reaches to the point that made you think that they were retarded for acting that way. I'm not even going to bother and say when your going to cry that list is way to long.
Overall, Anohana is an anime that fans of Slice of life, Drama genre much watch. It leaves an impression on you that after you finish watching it, you will remember it for a while and even rewatching some scenes would continue to make you just as emotional. read more

The concept itself was ok, nothing special, your typical romcom anime. The story had a slow start, i didn't feel particularly pulled into the story until about episode 11 where Miketsukami past was revealed the episodes inbetween i felt was purely fan service and it was there to make viewers laugh, and believe me it did =D. The ending i thought was pretty nice, although it did feel a bit rushed but it was quite heartwarming and im sure romance viewers will like it. But one thing that annoyed me was that episodes 3-10 was basically just introducing a bunch of characters, and Shirakiin being all like "Oh i need to repay and thank Miketsukami" and when it did happen Miketsukami was all like "I don't deserve your thanks"... what the fuck is up with that just accept her appreciation
The art in this wasn't bad for an anime that came out in 2012 its to be expected, i quite like some of the character design, Miketsukami fox form is pretty cool, so is Shirakiin's demon form or w/e she looked pretty kawaii. I absolutely Love the character design for Zange chan the bunny ears just works so god damn well, completely suits his personality and really draws out the comical moments from him. Renshou demon form is pretty jokes, his scroll look is pretty funny and provides quite a lot of priceless moments in the anime.
The OST wasn't anything special, although this isn't exactly an anime that really focuses on music, Each character had an opening and ending, which is pretty cool in my opinion, some of the voice actors was pretty good, Zange chan, Shirakiin's voice actor worked pretty well and really suited them. But this anime isn't really focused on the sound its more about the comedy it provides.
There was a wide variety of different characters each with a personality that made this anime pretty funny, Shirakiin with her bad habit of being rude to others led to some rather comical moments, that coupled with Miketsukami, who is totally in love with her is quite funny. I loved the bits when she calls him a dog and he basically acts like one =P. I Love Zange chan personality, that sarcastic attitude yet trying to act nice and innocent is pretty jokes, and his "Love" is way to over the top, man his love for Miketsukami is jokes. Even though i like all the characters in Inu X Boku SS it seems that there is a major lack of character development, not much is said about some of the characters past, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of character development between some of the side characters and Shirakiin for example her relationship with Nobara isn't very developed considering shes one of the first side character Shirakiin meets. It seems that the only 2 character that got the most attention was Shirakiin and Miketsukami but i guess they are the main characters, the romance between them was pretty nice as well, i would've liked to see more about zange chan and the others, especially Sorinozuka and his past.
This anime, is one of those ones which is just filled with comical scenes with the slight serious scenes the only really serious episodes was after 11. I quite enjoyed it interms of i was laughing quite a lot, even though most of the jokes seems to be based around the same thing taking the piss out of Banri, or Shirakiin's bad habit even though its so repetitive i cant help but still laugh =D, Miketsukami's love for Shirakiin or Nobara's pervertedness is just hilarious and will surely make you laugh your head off.
Overall it was an ok anime it's your typical comedy romance anime, where its filled with loads of comedy and then right at the end it hits you with romance. I personally quite liked the plot of the story but there wasn't really much development of the main story which is the problem i found with this anime =/. If you want to watch an anime that'll make you laugh your head off, then Inu x Boku SS is definitely something for you. read more

Sword art online is probably the most anticipated anime in this summer season, and it maybe the best in my opinion. Although there are a lot of critics saying that the anime is no where as good as the light novel series, but with 25 episodes its hard to focus on everything especially if the novel is up to its 10th volume, but who knows there might be a season 2.
The story follows Kirigaya Kazuto with his game alias "Kirito," a "solo" player that was part of the beta in the game and his journey to clear the 100 floors, being part of the squad that is always on the front lines he is well known, and is called the black swordsman due to his clothes. His adventure leads him to meet many different kind of people, each one changing a bit of Kirito maybe in the future he would no longer be a solo player? i'll have to wait and see=P.
There are massive leaps in the time line such as in the first 2 episodes their like on floor 1 or 2, but in the 3rd episode there on 20 something? and Kirito is around level 40. It makes it really confusing because you don't really know what happened between, it would have been cool to show Kirito levelling to be honest, seeing it will probably remind the days of when i was levelling on a MMO. plus the fact that they don't continue on after each episode kinda sucks coz theres none of that cliff hanger feeling =/ but i guess i haven't exactly finished the anime yet so who knows it might occur in the future its only just begun, but i heard that the massive time leaps happen in the light novel as well. Although only side stories has only been released, the fact that i find them pretty good already hopefully the main story will be amazing as well.
But to be honest what i think makes this story amazing its how you don't really get bored when your watching the episode or at least you don't lose attention, it constantly engages you, its kinda the feeling you get when watching Full metal alchemist brotherhood where you cant help but keep on watching.
Being released in 2012 it'll be surprising if the animation was bad. The character designs are very well done in this, the female characters kinda remind of some characters from guilty crown such as Asuna quite similar to inori as in the face not the hair style and stuff. The background is absolutely amazing, with so much detail, looking at some of the background will truly astonish you. The fight scenes are pretty cool, although there is little magic or skills involved despite this being a MMORPG, you only get to hear the skill name you don't really see it in action, the sword fights are pretty cool i think there pretty well animated i like the way when people disappear they kinda disintegrate, plus i like the way the monster/players are cut as well and i like what they do with the menu really makes it feel like a game.
The opening is pretty well done, the song is pretty catchy and is sang by LiSA who i find pretty good, she did the opening and ending for Angel Beats! and the Girls Dead Monster songs she also sang the opening for Fate/Zero. The opening video hardly spoils anything only showing characters and very little bits of fight scenes unlike some anime opening video's which spoil a lot for you like Shakugan no Shana... I quite like the OST in this anime, it really set the mood in some of the sad scenes/fight scenes it draws your attention more towards it. Especially the fight scenes it makes it more exciting to watch, and its one of those things where when you hear the OST again you will remember the scene.
I quite like the characters in SAO, Kirito is your typical lone wolf that when something bad happens he takes it really personally, in real life he didn't really socialise much with the outside world, so being in a game that completely reflects your life its kinda hard for him to interact with other players in the game. Probably one of the reason why he is a "solo player" although not the only reason, other reason include bad experiences during the game, such as deaths and etc. Although it's pretty interesting to watch when he helps people out despite being a solo player.
Asuna is one of the few pretty girls in SAO and to be honest a girl in an MMO is not very common, she also fights in the front lines aswell, with the title "flash" that she gained due to her skill lighting fast attacks. Her personality provides plenty of comical moments, she's basically an innocent teenager, that gets easily embarrassed when topics around relationships come up or when embarrassing things happen, you can probably image what kind of comical scenes will come up cant you =P. I think SAO focuses on the relationship between Asuna and Kirito, although its not completely clear yet as only 6 episodes are out, i am definitely a fan of Kirito X Asuno =P.
I'm not completely sure if the characters currently introduced are side or main characters due to the fact that they only appeared once, but each female character seems to basically fall for Kirito and affects his mental state somehow whether in a positive or negative way.
For me personally this Anime really pulls me in, I really like each fight scene that occurs, especially the ones where Kirito is basically completely overpowering every monster/player. The side stories are pretty good, even though there sides it feels like they play a big role in the main story in terms of character development. Each time there's a romance development between Asuna and Kirito I get really excited, they haven't really done much yet but I really want them to be together they work so well together =P. Its kinda similar to the feeling i get when Touma and Misaka from To Aru Majutsu no Index have romance developments xD.I can't really comment on the Main story yet as it hasn't actually started yet =/
Currently I am absolutely loving SAO mainly because of the fact that its an anime about an MMORPG =P, it has everything that you can ask for from a fantasy action adventure anime. I think everything is done to a high standard, and theres not much you can ask for except maybe less time leaps and more character development but the anime just started so theres not much i can ask for. This is the view point of someone who hasn't read the light novel so i can't really compare the 2, but I heard that the anime doesn't follow the light novel completely or leaves little bits out? who knows even without reading the light novel i think this is still pretty good. Hopefully with episodes about the main story starting soon SAO will become even better and maybe become of those unforgettable animes such as Clannad or Code Geass. read more

The must unexpected twist in a story i had ever seen, never in a million years did i think that Yuji will join up with BM (Bal Masque) and fight against the FH (flame haze). Yuji who had the God of creations, Sairei no Hebi in him, wanted to free shana from the destiny of the flame haze, a never ending fight against the tomogara. The fights between Yuji and Shana led to romance development between them which was pretty nice to watch and enjoy, Yuji FINALLY chooses a girl after 50 episodes... Season 3 is basically a war between the Tomogara and the Flame haze, Yuji who wanted to create a world for the Tomogara, meaning they will all leave the current world and flame haze wouldn't fight anymore, at the start I was thinking "great thats good, finally peace" so i was VERY confused on why the flame haze continued to fight even though Yuji's action will lead to peace, after rewatching those episodes several times i realised that the Flame Haze was fighting for the future while Tomogara was fighting for the present, that was the only difference. If we were playing a game, you can call the ending a "good end" like its literally a good end with no bad outcomes and everyones happy, very first time witnessing one. I found this ending to be absolutely amazing, even rewatching just the last 5 mins a hundred times, i still get emotional at Shana and Yuji's talk =P.
Yuji's new look is pretty badass, he looks like a true villain. Most of the character design didn't really change, everybody still looks the same but i guess they can't really change much considering their clothes are part of their weapons. I think the animation of the massive fight scenes were pretty well done, most the FH looked different, but for the tomogara, you can see the same one like 10 times they didn't really put much effort in it, but i guess it'll be hard to come up with loads of unique monster designs. The new characters were also quite good as well, with the new tomogara design weird as ever and monstery like and the new flame haze well, there all very different and their clothes really match their personality.
The opening songs is as amazing as ever, even after listening to them probably about a hundred times on youtube and on my phone I'm still not bored of it. The ost is quite well done, i especially like the one in the ending, a nice slow piano theme while Yuji and Shana is talking about their relationship. The fight OST is pretty good as well. The ending songs is also as amazing as ever, i especially like what they do now where they have part of the ending song playing just before the end of the episode, for me it kinda created a cliffhanger feeling making me want to watch more.
It really is amazing to see how much Shana has changed, from a complete Tsundere into someone who can freely express her feelings but i do love the bit in the end where she uses Urusai x3 again at that point i was just thinking "YAY shes back woooo!'. In this season she's more open towards all the character and it soon becomes clear that because of this it has affected everyone else as well especially Wilhelmina, at the start she refused to recognise Shana as a flame haze due to Shana's feeling, but now after 2 seasons she finally accepts Shana. Plus I think she became more soft, and more opening as well. In the past 2 season's Yuji was pretty predictable, you knew what he was doing and their was nothing mysterious about him, That all changed in season 3, He became a character that is the complete opposite, and in a way Shana became more like what Yuji was before. This was actually kinda fun to enjoy for me, for Yuji who was always following Shana to actually oppose her feels like he finally became a man, but i know a lot of viewers who disliked the fact that they fight. One thing i am especially happy about is Kazumi finally being out of this love triangle, no more obstacle's between Shana and Yuji or so i thought... The introduction of new and old flame hazes/tomogara was pretty good, it shows just how large the armies of both sides was. Love seeing Khamsin again and Rebecca was a pretty interesting new character.
This anime was probably about 70% fight scenes, with about 20% romance, the fight scenes was very enjoyable to watch, the plans that the FH came up with, the sacrifices that occur. Although the comedy factor of this anime was gone, I found the new relationship developments between Yuji and Shana very enjoyable to watch, each scene was very heartwarming. I liked the story of season 3 the most, it finally felt like that story was going somewhere, in the last 2 seasons it was always the same, Bal Masque did something Flame haze stopped them. Which probably made it quite enjoyable to watch for me. Best bits of the anime was probably when Yuji's tells of his plan, and the ending. The ending is just.... words can't describe it.
Overall I didn't think the story was lacking anywhere probably except for some character design of the minions of Tomogara, but its not a big deal, the Story is better than the other 2 although the romance was lacking but it still had more than season 2. What i found pretty amazing is the character relationships and how much it developed. The opening and ending songs still top notch. The Shakugan No Shana series is a must watch, all 3 seasons is really good in my opinion, if your a fan of Action, Romance anime then i think Shakugan no Shana is definitely for you, also with 70 something episodes you probably won't be bored for a while or at least a week =P. For people who says omg i want season 4, its not gonna happen the light novel finished so URUSA!I, URUSAI!!, URUSAI!!!! read more

At first this anime was pretty slow with not much happening during the first couple of episodes, but I guess they were for the sake of introducing characters, but one thing that i did like what they did was that they did an episode on each MC perspective of that day/even and have them narrate their own feelings at that time, not something you see in a lot of animes, to be honest first time i had ever seen it. Shortly after that the story picked up, it started focusing more on the urban legends that lead to characters developing their relationship's with each other, tensions between the 3 factions (Dollars, Yellow scarves, Slashers) that puts 3 best friends relationship to the test by some guy (Izaya) who is constantly trolling everyone 24/7 in the background, which was actually pretty amazing to witness the way he trolled everyone without anyone noticing, it was like watching Lelouche from code geass all over again =P. The anime ended pretty well, it was a nice and simple way to end everything that occurred throughout although I personally think it could have been better, or at least have Mikado and Anri confess to each other >.>
The art was pretty well done, it had that old classic feel, plus i quite liked how they made all the characters that didn't speak grey, it made the ones that did speak stand out more creating a nice little effect in my opinion. Most of the character design was quite well down, Izaya's character design gave off that same feeling as L from death note, that feeling off "Shit this guy probably knows everything". Kida with his delinquent look was quite good as well, it gave viewers an idea about what his past what could have been and why he change his look. the art around Celty was pretty good, as in her shadow techniques, like her weapons and ways to scare off people, they weren't overly detailed and was quite simple. They were often some quite epic poses/moves with her scythe as well.
The OST was pretty good in this, it really set the mood in certain scenes, especially the horror ones or the ones when something amazing will happen, but i liked the fight scene OST the best it made the fight seemed more epic and exciting even though it was just a normal fist fight... The 2 openings was pretty catchy to listen to, and i especially liked how they had a little recap section during the song i thought that was pretty cool, it actually made me listen to the whole opening every time which is quite rare!
Kida, Anri and Mikado character was pretty well done, their personality meant that they needed to rely on each other, which created quite a special atmosphere when the 3 started falling apart, plus Kida's personality always led to some funny moments come up from time to time. Celty's character was quite unexpected, when we think of monster or supernatural monsters in anime we think "probably something strong, and not easily scared" while Celty is strong, she gets scared pretty easily to the point where she's scared of traffic cops... Who knew Dullahan was scared of traffic cops. Shizou was a pretty interesting character, a short tempered guy who hates violence, yet despite his hatred for violence his actions tend to always contradict him. But my favourite character is probably Izaya, man that guy literally trolls everyone 24/7 no wonder Shizou hates him so much, although I loved it when he messes around with people.
This was a very enjoyable anime for me, there was countless scenes that made me sat their stunned thinking "WHATTTTTTTTT?!!". It was pretty interesting watching how Izaya play around with everyone thinking that their pawns, man that guy literally thinks he's god i swear. While there were many epic scenes especially the Dollars first meet up, this anime does have a few comical scenes such as Shizou and Izaya's fight, or Simon and his sushi comments, they were pretty amusing to watch. Oh and i loved it when they made references to other animes, especially the Shakugan no Shana model =P.
There is hardly any bad points in this anime, and if i had to give one i would say the ending could have been better, it wasn't anywhere as epic compare to the rest of series. But other than that I enjoyed this anime quite a lot, it had that same epic feeling you always get when watching Code geass. For viewers that like an anime where there is a guy in control of everything in the background, and likes a bit of horror and comedy, Durarara is something you should definitely watch, and if your done and want some more, go check out the dollars website online and be prepared to be amazed at how similar it is to the anime one! read more

The story of Haganai (Short for Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai) is a typical high school comedy, joining a club, going out and having fun in their own very special way, whether its rubbing sun scream on your friend with your feet, or playing some really realistic fantasy game. While this is a rather normal story line, there is another one that involves Yozora and Kodaka past, I won't say anymore but if you watched the anime its pretty much obvious what's going on after the 2nd episode basically. But the story is simply a backbone of all the comedy that is to follow, what makes Hannagi great is the comedy not the story.
The art in Haganai is quite well done, each character design is very well drawn/animated but i guess thats expected of an anime released in 2011. You can't not love Sena and her "Meat" or Kobato's very epic cosplay, that makes her very kawaii! shes just so god damn adorable. The art plays a big part in the comical scenes, examples include very obscure swim suits or unique natural hair colour plus cross dressers . But one thing i can say is that, its very hard to forget about some of the characters appearances once you have watched it.
The sound is so-so, not the strongest point in this anime, but its not exactly important. The opening of Haganai is one of those weird super high pitched ones, i'm personally not a big fan of those. To be honest even at those point i dont even really remember the OST of Haganai =/
Each character personality is the thing that defines this anime and makes it amazing. Yozora, innocent yet rude, sarcastic and quite weird acts as the president leader of Rinjinbu club, she provides plenty of funny and rude comments against the chairman's daughter Sena, who has ridiculously big "meat" and is a female galge gamer that is obsessed with each of the in game characters, their personality are practically the direct opposite of each other, but with 1 thing in common they both feel something for Kodaka. But what i will probably never forgot, is Rika's crazy perverted imagination, it can turn an innocent mecha manga into an ecchi scene, ahhh 'UNIVERSEEEE!!" One of my favourite characters is Kobato, i love her cosplay and her jealously when Maria calls kodaka onii chan, jeez "An chan" just realise just how kawaii your sister is =P.
Ths is one of the few anime where i was basically laughing my head off at literally every episode, with funny nicknames, rude comments, crazy imaginations, it truly is an unforgettable anime with scenes that I can watch over and over again on youtube without getting bored of it. If only I can forget about it and watch it again.. -sigh-
This anime has its good and bad points, bad points being quite average sound, and not much of a story, but the good points heavily out weigh the bad ones. I personally found this anime pretty good overall, and is definitely something everyone should watch as you are pretty much guaranteed to laugh out loud at one point during this anime. Also some of the parodies are quite well made, plus it has characters that you can't help but love in the end. I am looking forward to season 2 in Jan 2013 and hopefully it'll jut be as funny! read more

Code Geass, has one of the best anime stories ever, although the scenario is your typical, War mecha kinda anime, its the content that truly makes this amazing. Almost all of Lelouche's battle are so clever, with each scene leaving the viewer speechless unable to comprehend what just happened and unable to take in all the epicness that had just occurred. Unlike Season 1, Season 2 is more worldwide affecting other countries such as China, although Japan is still the main focus of course, also there is more emphasis on the Geass story line aswell rather than just a season based on a simple rebellion. The ending of Code Geass, is truly unique, it is by far one of the most cleverest ending i have ever witnessed, it left me literally speechless and made me constantly think "Wow Lelouche your an absolute boss". Its an ending that all anime viewers must witness. I have personally been on youtube and watched it probably at least 5 times =P
The art is great, unlike other mecha animes, with literally showing only 1 kind of soldier unit, code Geass actually has more than 1 kind of soldier unit. Each character is beautifully designed, C.C bright green hair and her weird suit getup shows just how weird she is. Karen is as always placed in ridiculously ecchi position, but male viewers cant help but love them =P, i know i was one of them =P. Suzaku's new appearance helps develop his character, and shows just how important he has become in part of the Britannia empire.
The sound like all animes, are nothing special it has appropriate music at the right times that creates and develop's the mood. Although what always get is the britannia OST that always play when the words "All Hail Britannia" comes up, it creates an atmosphere that makes you think "Shit's about to go down".
Following from Season 1, most of the main cast appear in Season 2. Lelouche and Karen's relationship deepens as Karen finally knows Lelouche is Zero, while knowing this secret Lelouche can't help but depend on Karen more and more, it also helped to create unforgettable moments when something bad happened with their relationship. C.C is the same as ever, but conveying more trust this time for Karen, and her relationship with lelouche strengthens throughout the series, developing an even deeper trust for each other. Lelouche is still the same character as ever, but this time his emotions is played even more with several unexpected character appearances that leaves you shocked. One of the characters that truly touched me was Shirley, her undying love for Lelouche was something truly amazing, that i couldn't help but cry at the end of Shirley's story.
Honestly how could you not enjoy this anime?. Who doesn't like massive battles, with strategies so clever that makes you go "What the F*** just happened" every time. While having a lot of action, it still manages to throw in a lot of drama, that develops the story and Lelouche's character as a whole (mainly emotionally). With each dramatic story that occurred, you can't help but feel for Lelouche and be attached to him, with some stories it just shows that even though he is so incredibly clever, he sometimes still are unable to protect the ones closest to him and that he is truly helpless sometimes. The ending of this anime is something you will definitely enjoy, i won't spoil it for you but if you watch it you have one hell of a ending waiting for you.
Code Geass is darn right amazing overall, its cleverness, its tear jerking scenes, the fight scenes, the drama and the story not a lot of animes could have done a more perfect job in my opinion. I often think to myself "Man i wish i could forget about this anime and rewatch it from scratch and experience the same epicness over and over again", but obviously that cant happen =(. While I do wish for another season, I think the ending of Code Geass is just so perfect that another season will simply ruin the magic created. For viewers that want a Mecha anime, with incredible drama/battle strategies, then Code Geass is a must watch!! read more

Nisemonogatari, focuses on Koyomi's sisters, also known as the "fire sisters", theses active and outgoing sisters, embark on a journey to caputre Deishu. Based on the light novel Karen Bee and Tsukihi phoenix. The story is as unique as ever, with an "unusual development" between the siblings it'll surely make you go "What the F***". The story is as great as ever, showing the strong relationship between the Araragi siblings and how much they depend on each other.
Shaft, has continued to uphold the weird animation style with hundreds of eye shots, and the abnormal sized rooms/back grounds. The character design are as amazing as ever with several changes to their appearances such as hair cuts, in certain scenes the detail (toothbrush scene) sets the mood and inhances the weird/awkward feelings you sometimes get when watching nisemonogatari.
The sound is nothing special, the thing that defines this anime isn't really the sound. But i guess one thing to look out for is that each main character that gets a story has its own opening and ending each matching the style of the character
We see the return of the main characters from the last season such as Hitagi, Tsubasa and etc. Some have changed their appearances while their personality is still the same, but the relationship between the old characters and koyomi has gotten stronger showing more trust and etc. If you a massive fan of Shinobu like me, then guess what she finally speaks!!!!! Ka Ka. Nisemonogatari mainly shows the development Koyomi and his sisters, which was known in season 1 that they always fight, but like all family's Koyomi as the older brother has to look out for his sisters no matter what which leads to unusual developments, and strengthening of their relationship, and scenes that makes you basically go "Aww, Good job Koyomi! thats a good answer" or something.
It's hard not to enjoy a show like this, with many awkward scenes or weird rape scenes that make you go "Ka Ka". But as ever the dialogue coupled with the weird animation makes a great combination and draws you in to the anime as much as possible. This anime doens't contain a lot of fight scenes, but when it does your sure up for a hell of a show, with lots of gore. The thing i enjoyed the most in this anime was seeing Shinobu in her adult form/teenager form (hard to tell) =P
Overall this anime is a great successor of bakemonogatari with most of the good aspects of bakemonogatari applied in Nisemonogatari, One thing to note is that it is shorter, with less story rather than 5 stories this one has 2, but i guess the stories in this one is more developed and detailed. If your a fan of the Bakemonogatari series, then your up for one hell of a ride when you watch this. read more

I guess for starters for those who don't know about clannad, it is a Visual novel made by the studio key written by Jun Maeda, writer of great stories such as Angel Beats!, Kannon and etc. Clannad was beautifully made, it mixes comedy and drama, so perfectly that at one point i'm laughing my head off then 3 mins later i'm crying. The drama/character story, is so heart warming that you can't help you cry, especially the bits with Ushio in it, I can guarantee you that to will cry, heck i cried just because she was happy =P, even watching the same scene over and over again i still get emotional may not necessary cry though. The comedy of Clannad, is one of a kinda with Sunohana Youhei and Furukawa Akio being the target of all comedy, being picked on by the sarcastic Tomoya or Tomoya being picked on it provides us with endless laughs no matter how many times you watch it. =D
The art is great, it's similar to the art of the Visual novel, with certain scenes, it uses a GTO kinda style where the character gets a weird face to provide comedy and etc. At first the cover art for Clannad put me off a bit, i thought to myself "Hmmm the art in this anime does't seem like the typical anime, it may be a bit weird" But i pulled through in the end and ended with an experience i would not forget for a while
Dango,Dango, Dango, Dango Daikaizoku. These words will be ones you will remember each time you think of Clannad, Nagisa's beloved Dango theme song that she loves to sing is a major part of the story, playing a role in Ushio's life as something reminded her of Nagisa, or playing a role in tomoya being something that drawn Nagisa and Tomoya together. Other than that, like all anime it plays appropriate music at appropriate times that creates a better mood for the view and etc.
You can't help but feel attached to every character in Clannad, each with a role to provide you with enjoyment, main character Tomoya, the typical protagonist that loves to help everyone out but has many personal problems, while providing endless sarcastic comments that makes viewers laugh out loud his downturn makes you hate him and love him. Nagisa is the typical shyanime character, but her weakness and naivety makes you love her regardless and feel attached to her regardless. Their beloved daughter Ushio, might i say super kawaii!!!, her voice makes your heart melt due to the cuteness, with her tough family relationships provides you with plenty of heartwarming and tear jerking moments in scenes between Tomoya and her. Nagisa's parents "Akki" and "Sanae" the support characters for the main characters, they provide both comedy for the viewers, and shows how family works together as one in time of crisis. Even now i can still remember the hilarious moments with "Akki" in.
I absolutely enjoyed Clannad, one of the very view animes that actually made me cry, it even got to the point where i was crying in every episode simply because i couldn't stop. You will experience countless of emotional moments, that you will enjoy no matter what, Comical moments that even after watching it you will still remember, or even go on youtube just to watch it.
This anime for me has changed my aspect on life, I learned to simply believe that family will always be there in times of need, and that you should always help out friends in need regardless the situation. But putting that aside, this anime has pretty everything you can ask for from a Romance, Drama anime. For each genre its in it makes the best out of it, with great romance moments between Tomoya and Nagisa, or drama scenes that makes you cry and even the comedy when its there it will make you laugh no matter what. This is a must watch for viewers who loves romance, comedy and drama anime! read more
