I'll be keeping this fairly brief. If you dislike any of the characters in the first season, this review might help you.

I already thought the characters were pretty weak, coming into the second season. What you should expect in the second season is for the characters to remain nearly the same. Or rather, you will see a series of episodes that each trick you into thinking that there will be character progression, that then revert back to the exact same dynamic. It is unbelievably frustrating to watch.

There is one moment in particular, which I can't talk about because spoilers, that happens in the second half read more

Most people don't seem to understand that this is an anime, and therefore isn't really intending to accurately portray real life. Most critiques I have seen so far of Ore no Imouto are "My friend told me to watch it because he/she said it was really good, but it was just some anime catering to the otakus of the industry". Reviewer then proceeds to either make fun of otakus, or even more amusing, says why this anime is actually... just an anime! An anime being anime-like? Taboo.

Ore no Imouto takes a cliche school / slice of life anime setup and sets it at a new read more

Genshiken 2 (Anime) add
10 of 18 people found this review helpful
 
An anime rarely comes along that has as much subtle impact as Genshiken packs in its surprisingly (and unfortunately) small 27-some total episodes. I am always convinced I have seen the best that anime has to offer, and that is when another series comes and wows me once again. Luckily, Genshiken does this in a very unique way.
At first I wasn't expecting much. An anime about otaku? I'm not an otaku, this can't be about me! My friend had highly suggested it to me however, so for his sake I decided to give it a try.
The story involves, as explained earlier, a group of college read more

Kämpfer (Anime) add
17 of 42 people found this review helpful
 
Kampfer, Kampfer, Kampfer.
A somewhat difficult anime to review.

Despite its shortcomings as an obviously stereotypical ecchi love-comedy jam-packed with your staple assortment of embarrassing, should-be-censored scenes, Kampfer surprisingly hit me with something I wasn't expecting: A cast of characters that are somewhat unique, but most of all, lovable in some way, and a very over-the-top sense of humor.
If you have seen a lot of different love comedies, you will still most likely enjoy this anime, but personally having seen a variety of these types of shows, the humor in Kampfer sometimes literally made me laugh out loud, which is something I do not do so often read more

Clannad: After Story (Anime) add
38 of 76 people found this review helpful
 
There are some animes that uplift us, and constantly make us laugh and smile each and every episode. There are animes that sadden us, show us a world where some people tried their best but didn't quite have the ability to make their dreams come true.

Then there is Clannad After Story, which seams together these two extremely emotional qualities flawlessly and presents us with something truly unique and amazing. It is a very real story, beautiful in its simplicity yet powerful with its bold emotions. It will send chills down your spine in the way it is able to show the biggest wonders within the read more

Casshern Sins (Anime) add
122 of 185 people found this review helpful
 
I started watching this anime, giving it a starting 6/10. I was up to a 9/10 within the first 7 episodes. Does that say something?

I am pleased to say that it says a lot. Casshern Sins is what looks like the most original anime of the Spring 2008 lineup, and while it may be sad, it is truly amazing to watch. (This review will update as the series goes on, if all goes well ;D)

STORY: 9/10

Casshern does not know if he is a man, robot, or neither. In a world of destruction, where humans are rarely found and the last of the robots rust, Casshern read more

Clannad (Anime) add

For me, Clannad was a truly unique and enjoyable experience. It has the power to draw out the emotions of the viewer like no other anime I have ever seen, and the slice-of-life / fantasy / romance mix was so well executed that I would get shivers after many episodes down the left side of my body (yes, the left side, I suppose that's because the right brain is the fanciful open-minded, creative side). Anyway, lets get on with this review.

STORY: 9/10

Okazaki Tomoya is an average "delinquent" - too lazy to study or do anything worthwhile. He spends all day hanging out with his friend read more

Zero no Tsukaima (Anime) add
32 of 77 people found this review helpful
 
Wow, I really was not expecting this to be a good anime, but it turned out much much better than I thought it would. What looked like just an average "I can't confess" love story turned out to have something special in it, maybe because they got to the point within 13 episodes like most animes don't.

STORY: 9/10

The story is very unique, as far as I can tell. Louise can't use any magic, but on the day where all 2nd year students summon a familiar to help them, Louise summons a teenage boy from Japan, which is obviously another world from the magical world. From read more

To LOVE-Ru (Anime) add
21 of 46 people found this review helpful
 
For the love of god, PLEASE read the manga. I must say; if there has ever been an anime that tainted the name of the manga more than tsubassa chronicles, To Love-Ru would be up there.

This is not to say that the anime is a complete train wreck. In fact, the first two episodes are fantastic in my opinion. They had it all down pat: The engaging story, the hilarious, embarrassing, over the top ecchiness, the art quality. Twas fantastic.

Then came the filler onslaught. I thought by grabbing hard onto the pages of the manga that the storm of pointless stories may not pulverize me, read more

I was going to bring one season of anime to watch on my iPod on my vacation, and I chose Code Geass. Boy, did I make the right choice.

For those of you who know Death Note, you can consider Code Geass the same except less based around tactics and more based around character development. Also, Code Geass has a much brighter, lighter feel to it, wheras Death Note feels very dark most of the time. That said, I'll break this down for ya:

STORY: 8/10

Basically, Lelouch the main character is a 17 year old boy who has always disliked the Brittanian empire that conquered Japan long read more
