Aku no Hana (Anime) add
68 of 188 people found this review helpful
This show is a fine example of what is wrong with the anime industry. It just uses reverse psychology and makes most to react in the exact opposite way than they usually do but it shares the same problem most shows do when it comes to evaluation. As it usually goes, most judge if a show is good solely on how it looks or feels instead of how good its material is or if its themes are presented properly. This is why we get embarrassing situations such as most anime fans yelling how shows like Code Geass are the most amazing things ever made and read more

Urobuchi strikes again and as usual the suckers bite it right away. This guy manages to present the dumbest of pretentious ideas as grilled steak. With some assistance from a hentai character designer he has all he needs for an auto-win, no matter how bad the show actually is. And trust me when I say, it is.

The setting is very interesting, as it is in all the stories he writes and never manages to develop in any way past shock effect and superficial philosophy. In my mind it is Xenogears meets Waterworld, populated by hentai people. You get mankind in the far future being in read more

Just like with all overhyped mediocrities the thing that made this so famous is mostly the premise. It has a setting where mankind is almost wiped out by giant monstrosities and gets cornered behind huge walls. They thought they were safe there until a giant manages to break down their fortifications and lets the monsters into civilian areas. Terror and death spread as people die defenceless by the thousands and the rest need to retreat to other fortified lands where they work almost as slaves to support the overpopulation and the lack of food. From this description you are presented with a most interesting action read more

Date A Live (Anime) add

You thought The World God Only Knows was ridiculous? You saw nothing yet!

In a nutshell, this show is basically a parody of date sims and various other otaku culture trademarks. The very setting can best be described as a date sim version of Neon Genesis. You have the world being invaded by alien beings with angelic-themed names, a slutty imouto in the role of Gendo Ikari and the Magi computer being a galge. There are supposed to be tremendous explosions occurring all over the world, that kill millions but that is presented as dramatic as boogies hanging from your earlobe. We never see anyone getting read more

This is the ninth Naruto movie, made around the time when the Ninja War began. The main idea behind the plot is interesting, as Naruto and Sakura are sent to an alternative dimension where there is no war. That is supposed to show what Madara plans to do if he plan succeeds and thus excuse his satanic plans.

Sadly this is still a kids’ show, thus the whole thing ends up being nothing more than a badly written fanfic. I mean, really, you are watching this just because you are aware of how one-dimensional everybody is and want to laugh with a “what if” anecdote. read more

One Piece Film Z (Anime) add
52 of 155 people found this review helpful
This is the eleventh One Piece movie, theoretically taking place after the Fishman Island arc. It is not dedicated to any particular crew member since by now the plot is so slow it will be years before another one joins in. Just like all movies, it is a filler mission with a good budget and a simplistic plot.

The story is about an ex Navy admiral planning to destroy all the pirates in the New World by erupting volcanoes in certain islands. As usual, the Strawhats just happen to accidentally bump into him and march to stop him before he kills not only them but also read more

This anime (which I will simply call Mondaiji) is basically a filler series. Meaning, something you will watch between better titles or when there is nothing good on tv. It is one of those light shows people watch as relaxation or when they are very bored. Sure, I make it sound like it is a bad thing when it isn’t but then again I am not watching anime because I am bored.

The story is about three teenagers from our world being transferred to a magical land where they need to help it help it be freed from the tyranny of demon lords. Sounds a read more

Ixion Saga DT (Anime) add
28 of 115 people found this review helpful
- Animated by Brain’s Base, a studio with very good production values and a mostly mediocre roster. Their best works to date are Baccano and Penguindrum and even them were just lively and colorful but not exactly masterpieces.
- Directed by Takamatsu Shinji, who has directed numerous famous anime throughout the years (Gundam Wing, School Rumble, Gintama) and has experience with many genres to boot.
- Based on a videogame by Capcom. I haven’t played it but it seems to be mediocre, just like most of what the company does outside its usual fighting games.

Ixion Saga is a parody of JRPGs, thus half the time read more

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo (Anime) add
60 of 185 people found this review helpful
I really had no intention to watch another type of show such as this one but since most current anime are crap and a guy insisted, I just said OH WHAT THE HELL, MORE EXCUSES TO WRITE A REVIEW AND BASH THE ANIME INDUSTRY. So here I am watching this show called The Pet Girl of Sakurasou which is supposed to have some sort of good drama besides being fan service.

... One minute after the pilot episode begins I am already eye-rolling. We get the usual hentai-premise, a typical boring dork surrounded by hot girls who are all over him for NO FAKIN’ REASON read more

Sasami-san@Ganbaranai (Anime) add
43 of 135 people found this review helpful
Once upon a time there was a studio called SHAFT, which hired a man named Simbo Akiyuki and created one very good school comedy called Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei (SZS). It sold so well, it kept making more similar comedies, and even though none of them were as good as the first, they kept making money out of the fame they got thanks to it. And this is why we get Sasami-san at Ganbaranai at present time

What made SZS so good was the simple fact it had a character for every possible situation. They could deal with any issue they could think of thanks read more
