So i watched this Anime, i already liked Initial D years ago. But what i can tell is, that the Producers try with this new Movie to find more Fans maybe some who never Watched it before because the graphics where absolutly bad in past. What i liked is that some Details changed, changed maybe in the better way.

The Characters changed a bit, but they see like they are more Mature. Also the drawing Style is super, thats why i think that Initial D will have new Fans. The old ones most of them probably will stay.

What i didnt like is that there read more

Probably the most honest, straightforward and amazing ecchi out there.
I wouldn't say is borderline hentai, but it will seem so on moments.

I love pretty much all of it. The story is not mind blowing, but its very well explained.

There's way more than just accidental boob touching. Way more.
Your mind will scream omg.

The thing I admire and love about the story and the execution is how everyone but Keita sees the stepsister thing as completely normal. That's where the fun is. He is barely able to hold it and is constantly under some guilt trip. Not to say his sisters aren't, but less so. Even his read more

You know how sometimes people ask how different your life could have been if you never met a particular person? In a way, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure embodies this perfectly.

If you're a fan of OTT action anime (such as Gurren Lagann or Dragon Ball Z for example), then you'll love JJBA.
The show (so far) follows the men of the Joestar family's bloodline, starting with Jonathan Joestar (JoJo, you see?) and his fued with his adopted brother Dio. I won't go into too much detail of what happens in this show, as it's a case of watching, but this is a show that truly lives up to read more

Akatsuki no Yona is definitely a solid anime BUT it is definitely NOT for those who are interested in anime's similar to style, pace and structure of >>> e.g nanatsu no taizai or seirei no morbito .

After watching Fate/Zero and enjoying that thoroughly, I have to say I was disappointed by Fate/Stay night UBW.
Story- It's the holy grail war, what else did you expect? Good concept but unlike Fate/zero, while watching this I felt like sleeping most of the time. I didn't expect it to turn into a f***ing cutesy high school drama either. Was too close to a shounen this time.
Art- Same art style, it's good and all characters look fine as usual, but I hated how Shirou looked.

While I was disenchanted with the first season since it was just a jumble of events, the past two seasons in the series have been steadily getting better. With Motto running true to the Manga and kind of having some plot flow it still fell a little short in storytelling. Darkness solved those errors and the only reason I gave it a 9 is because I am able to follow the sequence of events throughout this season without asking myself, "Where did this come from?" or "Why is this even included?".

Possibly the best anime of the season but not without faults. Overall 9/10 for me. Review after 20 episodes:

Story 8/10

The story is generally enjoyable but a little slow paced. There are definitely some oddities in there like the fact that most of the main cast is supposed to be fourteen but act much more mature. I found a lot of the storyline to be very predictable and some of the moments when the show tried to be deep came off as cliche.

You won't find anything groundbreaking here and this is easily the weakest element of the show for me. That being said, I still did read more

This anime is not for everyone. The story is pretty random, jumping from one plot-line to another. It's pretty hard to grasp some decisions the main characters made (such as giving up the opportunities to exchange classroom utilities), and you will be confused by what the anime is trying to achieve.

One Parasite attempts to crawl into Shinichi's ear while he sleeps, but fails as Shinichi is wearing headphones, and enters his body by burrowing into his arm instead.

School Days is the story of a horny teen boy, his annoyingly timid girlfriend, his side chick, and a bunch of other girls with poor decision making skills who refuse to mind their business. I'm actually unsure of how this anime has gotten so many bad reviews because it was genius in my opinion. It was also infuriating and literally made me sweat from rage.

School Days should be classified as a psychological anime because it definitely deconstructs the harem genre. I initially thought this would be some sappy love story with Makoto finding his true love while making a few mistakes along the way. I read more

Death Note was a very big series in the early to mid 2000's. The manga was very popular in Japan and spawned a (honestly pretty well-directed) anime by the prestigious studio Madhouse, which was a worldwide success. wherever you went in online forums death note avatars and signatures were everywhere. Although it isn't talked about as much today, much like any older anime, it still has a pretty good critical reception and is considered one of the better manga to have come out in recent years.

Unfortunately I feel that this reputation, while, understandable, is largely undeserved.

The problem is that the character's motivations become shallower and shallower to create that same chessboard concept that occurred in season one.

In the first season it all felt natural. Each character felt like they did what they did was their choice.

In the second season it felt a little more forced in that this character has to do an action in order to keep the story moving. The plotline is genius but read more

This is not a detailed review. It only highlights the reasons why this anime has turned out to be pretty average.

After the disappointing first season, I was expecting Root A to pick up pace, and slowly start improving. Alas, I was wrong.

One of the greatest weaknesses this anime has had is character development. None of the characters are built on a solid foundation, and will easily be forgotten once the series dies down. A new character is introduced almost every other episode, and little to none information is given about it. I still don't know half of the members at Anteiku, and what the fuck read more

Animecrazy_V
What an incredible show - (it's 2am right now and I've watched the entire thing through from the beginning to end in one full gulp). Just to give a gist of it, Zankyou no Terror is an honestly intriguing and moving story about four teenage boys and girls (Nine, Twelve, Lisa and Five) who struggle to verify their existence in the world.

Yet, I do have many conflicting perspectives about the series. For instance, it has used terrorism as a plot device during a time when it has become quite a sensitive topic (in light of ISIS and what they're doing around the world right now). read more

Baka to Test is a comedy anime that I think should be seen in the moments when you want to rest, maybe after seeing some anime with a plot very complex or, more generally, after doing something tiring.
The plot is interesting also because Baka to Test is not the classic anime school, is something very special. How to defect but it must be said that, after a while 'you see this anime, the plot starts to get monotonous. So overall I would give read more

ChristopherKClaw
The following is a spoiler-free review of both Clannad and Clannad: Afterstory.

Clannad and its Afterstory are an adaptation of the Clannad visual novel, animated by Kyoto Animation. The Clannad story comes in two parts. First, you have the original Clannad series which is essentially your average high-school harem rom-com. Next comes Clannad:Afterstory, which picks up where the original story left off and moves in a completely different direction, following the characters out of high school and into the real world where it focuses on the very real and very personal struggles of life. It's a tale about life, loss, love and most of all family. read more

Just like(or unlike) how I like action-oriented mahou shojo, I'm a fan of gar blood-pumping mecha instead of the new "pyschological" mecha that has arisen in the post-NGE era.

Despite not being a huge fan of NGE, I really loved Anno's Gunbuster for a couple reasons, all of which I will detail in my review.

Story (8/10): The stories initial pacing is as slow as pacing can be and this slow pacing sometimes causes you to become disengaged enough that the subtle plot development won't sink in, thus resulting in the ending coming across as very shallow.

It has a lot of comedy potential because countries typically act only in rational self interest and often commit horrible deeds that they try to rationalize. If countries were people, almost all of them would be complete fucking assholes!

Hourou Musuko's subject matter is rarely dealt with in anime: it explores the issues of gender identity and societal perception of gender roles through the lens of 5th graders, a particular age where puberty is becoming a thing, and clueless kids are changing into romantically involved teenagers. It's a time when kids become more aware of their surroundings, more conscious of their changing feelings; it's the perfect stage to explore how one may feel being an LGBT (lesbian-gay-bi-trans).

It wasn't the shoujo sparkly-sparkle, big round lava-lamp eyes with omnipresent flower backgrounds, type of mainstream; it was the I’m-too-lazy-and-inartistic-to-have-stylised-illustrations type.

Mirai Nikki (TV) (Anime) add

Mirai Nikki is my 2nd Anime after Death Note and I find it really great. Fantastic story and amazing characters. Everything is awesome.

Survival game where they outsmart each other, mysterious things that made me watch it more and more and decisions they (mostly Yuki) have to make. Sad ending and fact I've finished watching it made me so depressed and sad, but at the same time speechless .

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica (Anime) add
ChristopherKClaw
Madoka Magica has been praised as a masterpiece and a jewel, and I would have to agree with that praise. While everyone's interpretations and thoughts on the show are different, let me do my very best to explain.

Here’s the premise: middle-schooler Madoka Kaname’s life is ordinary and perfect. She has a well-off caring family, good friends and a bright future. Then one day she encounters a cute magical creature by the name of Kyubey who offers to grant her and her friend Sayaka any wish. In exchange, her and her friend would become “magical girls” (girls with magical powers) and fight witches to protect the read more

Hanasaku Iroha (Anime) add
finaljas90
I like to start my reviews off with an anecdote so here's a story. When I was a kid I never did the chores around the house. I didn't think it was necessary. I always figured that my parents would do all the work. But as they got older and older I started to pitch in more around the house, and began to think of them less as chores and more as my duty. The same feeling was what I felt in Hanasaku Iroha. Despite being written by the infamous Okada(of Nagi no Asukara and Golden Time frame) the story is one that has truly read more

The iDOLM@STER (Anime) add
finaljas90
Let me make a confession. My first idol anime was Love Live. Yes that yuribait infested Love Live with the horrid CGI animations. So after Love Love and realizing how much I was intrested in the idol genre, I decided to give one of the most prestigious series in the genre "iDOLM@STER" a spin. And it was great.

Story: The story of Idolm@ster starts off with a documentary of a small idol company in Tokyo as a way of introducing the staggering 13-person cast. It's large, but the anime more than makes up for this through fantastic interpersonal interactions and personal episodes for each character during read more

First of all, I haven't finished watching this anime but I doubt my opinion will change that much. I should also point out I went into watching this thinking it was ecchi or harem. It's neither of those, but that is just my problem with it, it doesn't have to be yours.

But from a standpoint of is it good? IMO, not really.

There is a story and its not a bad one, but it feels rushed in a way. From ep 1-2 it felt like an entire season has passed because the main characters went from a totally normal world with no prior knowledge to being read more

Sword Art Online (Anime) add
ChristopherKClaw
At last, this day has come. After all this time I must now at long last sink my teeth into my beloved Sword Art Online and tell you everything that’s wrong with it.

There was a time when I truly loved SAO. I still do, but now the SAO that I love is my SAO and not whatever the hell they’re making over there at ‘sellout & fanservice production studios’. I even took the time to buy the DVDs and a video editing program so that I could make my own version of the show which is all I will ever watch now since it’s better read more
