"I wonder... What were the names of the flowers that bloomed during that season?"

Sorry, just give me a minute, I can't seem to stop these tears from coming out of my eyes... my goodness, it's been a long time since I've seen an anime that can make me cry like that.

AnoHana... truthfully, I didn't know what to expect when getting into this anime. The first thing I always do when looking for an anime to watch is get recommendations from my friends, but due to some recent trust issues regarding the recommendation of School Days from a friend of mine, this was probably the first read more

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! (Anime) add
ThatAnimeGuy90
Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! (which I will call Chu-2 from now on) is a high school romantic comedy series produced by Kyoto Animation. The series was adapted from the light novel of the same name, also published by Kyoto Animation. KyoAni has created many great anime series in the past, such as Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, Hyouka, and Clannad. Chu-2 is no different. Every element within Chu-2 blends together to create what I believe to be a romantic comedy masterpiece.

Chu-2 revolves around the lives of two characters, Rikka Takanashi, and Togashi Yuuta. The female lead, Rikka, suffers from chuunibyou (eight-grade syndrome). This causes her read more

Samenai Yume (Manga) add
TheRawPotato
Samenai Yume was definitely an interesting read, if not a pleasing one.

The art is delicate and gorgeous. With the liberal use of grays and black, iit conveyed the dark, eerie tone of the story quite well. This one-shot contains some graphic scenes of sex and gore. However, I thought it added to the creepiness of the manga as a whole.

The length of the one-shot was not enough to give much development to the characters. Despite this and the simple plot, the ending was nicely done. It gave some closure, but left me shivering with awful realization.

Samenai Yume will tickle your mind, depending on how you read more

The characters doesn't insult the audience with its simplicity and cliché moves like most animes.

The brother-sister relationship is surprisingly well established.
The humanity is on the brink of slavery theme is also very motivating and exciting. One may find itself cheering for the main character to be the king. This old hikikimori unlike rest, believes humanity's capabilities and this takes the plot to another level, conquering the whole world. What can a man desire more than triumph and glory by unconsciously putting ourselves in main character's place we satisfy these feelings and its more than enough reason for me to watch but the read more

Nagi no Asukara (Anime) add
doug23
You ever begin a show with moderate to low expectations, find more than you were looking for, get super into it, hype it up to your friends, and get so god damned excited for it every week that you just can't contain yourself (an exaggeration, of course)? Nagi no Asukara was that show for me. It blew my expectations away with it's excellent character development, good story, great art and sound direction, and just overall feel. "But then why is it a 6", you may ask. Because endings can cripple a show. A stool with 3 legs will be wobbly if one leg is too read more

Mushishi (Anime) add
TheNeko
Mushishi is the most simplistic yet beautiful series that I had the pleasure to experience until now and is one of the examples that shows the incredible variety that anime has.

Well then, ladies and gentlemen I welcome you to my Mushishi review. I hope you enjoy it.

Now, the story of Mushishi follows our protagonist, Ginko, as he travels around the world working as a Mushi-shi. So, instead of having an over-arching story, this show chooses to have a more episodic nature. This way of telling the story has its own pluses and minuses. For one hand, as every episode has a different story read more

No Game No Life. At First you think it would come out like a regular brother sister anime in which its like incest or something. noooooo, Hardcore Gamers Entering A World In Which Is A Dream That Came True to Them, but the fact is war and cheating are prohibited, but these 2 are Turning Out To Be Saviors Of Humanity, The Show Is Really Promising And So Far It Hasn't Been Rush And Its One You Would Really Enjoy Watching

Very nice and refreshing gag and parody anime. It has nothing to do with "cute girls & cute things" as some people think for unknown reason. The show heavily relays on breaking 4-th wall and abstract humor and it seems most of the anime watchers are not used for this and miss entire point of the series. The show is full of self-irony and mocks anime-industry quite a bit, and it feel kinda honest which I like.

People bash this show due to inability to understand content outside of typical school comedy/drama tropes. So, while I can't guarantee that you will like it, there are no read more

3rd episode just came out and there were no reviews so far....sooooo.

Either you will love it or hate it. If you love it, you will notice that unlike other anime, even the ones you like, the episodes seem to fly by and appear to last only 5 minutes; that's how enjoyable this anime is.

Both main characters have their own personality types yet compliment each other perfectly. There is little to discuss in terms of the story as it is just starting but it seems very promising and nothing has been rushed so far(even though it is only 12 episodes long).

The intro and read more

I really like this anime. I watched Death Note before this and there were quite a few similarities. I personaly like Lelouch better than Light. Season 1 was amazing. I didn't like season 2 as well but it was still really good. I recommend this anime to anyone who liked Death Note and or like physiological anime

"I'm not cross-dressing...this is a kilt!"

Amongst the already rather limited selection of romance manga involving a boy and a trap, the vast majority of them tend to focus their attention on one of two things:
1.) developing its characters and their relationships up until just before the finale, only to end the story on a rather ambiguous and unsatisfying note
2.) straying into irrelevant side-stories that only serve to sideline the characters and their relationships until the final chapter or so

It's certainly rare enough to find a series that doesn't fall prey to such pitfalls, so one can only imagine my initial skepticism upon not only reading read more

Nagi no Asukara (Anime) add
CuppaSteve
The coming-of-age tale is a story that's been told time and time again in different forms across all mediums of art. It's a timeless story in that the feelings one encounters while growing up are so vast and diverse that it's difficult to fully capture it all into one work, no matter how vast it may be. It's also very difficult to present this story in a manner that's genuinely creative and original, but Nagi no Asukara happens to do just that. Nagi is a coming-of-age story that, while it doesn't compose the sweeping mass of emotions experienced while growing up perfectly, certainly does a read more

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction - Isaac Newton

I don't like Magical Girl anime and while I like the idea of deconstructing a genre I find that most deconstructions spend more time trying to throw ideas at a wall and hope they stick instead of breaking apart the genre. So what makes Madoka Magica so good? Simple, the execution.

Madoka Magica takes pretty much every stereotype the Magical Girl genre has and brakes it apart to see how it works. Why is this stuffed animal trying to give us superpowers? What are Magical Girls? What are the psychological effects on a little girl who read more

Very disappointing, especially when compared to the first season. There is very little character development. Nothing really occurs that changes these characters until the last couple episodes. The characters are so frustrating that it took everything I had to keep from throwing my iPad.

I have not read the light novel, but if this season is even a little bit faithful to the LN, then the writer has some serious problems. From what I gather, the first two seasons cover eight volumes of the book. EIGHT volumes, and the only real character development takes place at the end of season one and the end of read more

I would rate this 6.5 if I could. I've read a lot of stuff by this artist, and this has to have been my least favorite of her work so far. It has a pretty interesting theme, but I think it's pretty rushed through. There was definitely some twists, but I felt it was lacking a bit in terms of content and pace (though I guess that's hard to do in 3 volumes). Beautiful art like always though. But like the other review stated I probably wouldn't reread again, I just wasn't really captured like I am with the rest of her works. I think read more

Loved this anime. Overall, I think there were a couple plot wholes within the plot (obviously). But well review that part later.
First off, Im going to review the characters starting off as my own zodiac sign, Iku Mizushima.

Iku Mizushima, does represent me in a way. *SPOILERS AHEAD*
His band members, (Friends of mine) were using him for his money. I can really relate to this character after deaths,and mis fortune, and basically doesn't trust many people. So as you can see, he is my favorite character for emotional adaption reasons.

Yoh Tomoe, didn't make sense to me. His dis trust in others for being read more

I read this series a long time ago, and it has been one of the most memorable manga I have ever read.

The story is fairly straight forward with the usual flashbacks. Nothing out of the ordinary in that regard. What got me was the concept that the story was following. I think that quite a few of us have read manga where magicians are prominent. In magico, magic is based around the completion of rituals. The more powerful magics require you to undergo rigorous training or near impossible tasks. This series really provided a fresh twist to how magic works in that regard. it did read more

Where do I begin with this show? While I did enjoy it immensely I have to say it suffered from some issues that I'll put in the "criticisms" section. There will be some spoilers in there so be prepared. With that out of the way, lets get on with the rest of the spoiler free review!

Construction never looked this good. This is another one of Shinkai's adverts, and like the rest of them, it is beautifully animated. However, it still is, you know, an advert.

If I ever want to build an airport, I'll be sure to contract Taisei.
