Mushishi (Anime) add
01animeking
In this anime we follow Ginko a mushishi he deals with people who have been afflicted by mushishi episode by episode. this anime draws you in with it's peacefulness and doesn't let go. As the show goes on i found myself curious to see what happens next, the anime touches on some morality issues very lightly. Ginko the main character is intriguing as we only find out small bits about his past. overall this anime is good

" Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts "
Does this quote describes what this manga is about? Probably not, but I felt that it would be cool writing it before I start review. This is already 24 years old, it started back in 1990 and was publishing to 1996 (six years)
Back then, basketball wasn't that popular in Japan, very few really talked about it, but mangaka Takehiko Inoue liked basketball, and even though he was told by his editor that basketball is almost a taboo in Japan, he decided to write manga about it, read more

Sora no Otoshimono (Anime) add
dongery
I decided to write a review of Sora no Otoshimono because I was lucky enough to find this really amazing anime.
I am not going to write down that a "cartoon boy" meets with an "alien girls"...because this is not what it is all about.
When I started to watch the show at first I didn't know what to expect, but I gave it a shot and after the 3rd episode I knew that this anime will be in my TOP10 for sure.
This is a beautyfull work of some amazingly talented people. They created a world which is a living masterpiece what you never want to stop. read more

Kuroshitsuji II (Anime) add
homicidal_maniac
You know... the first Black Butler anime was by no means a masterpiece, but it was still fairly enjoyable stuff regardless. I certainly had more than my fair share of complaints but it was more than enough to turn me into a fan of the franchise and if anything, at least it had a "proper" finale. Why then did A-1 Pictures decide to make a second season out of it, despite how well it ended is beyond me... okay, that's a lie. I've got a relatively good idea why this season was made in the first place but I need an introductory paragraph for this read more

Date A Live (Anime) add
DolbyThX
Date a live is an Anime that tries to do many, MANY things at once. It wants to bring us hot girls, a large ammount of explosions and action in general and some romantic drama.

Date a live is setup in a Japan where beautiful female creatures, whose are identical to humans, are capable to create huge black hole-like explosions (or should I say implosions). And thus, every now and then, a whole ton of people is threatened to die, along with many other life forms in its way. Enter Shido Itsuka, a typical main character. Long story short, he's the chosen one to stop these read more

Hunter x Hunter (2011) (Anime) add
Fulbring
Whenever Shonen Jump releases anime based on a popular manga they are usually for the fighting and story enthusiasts. Hunter X Hunter is one of those shows that balance the two so perfectly that I can resemble it perfectly to a Ying Yang. Although this story is fiction, it’s still based on part of the truth of the real world we live in (that’s what I think anyways). The story is brutal, deep and extremely enjoyable. I won’t go into details of the story or the arc because I can’t mention that without spoiling but I’m going to express what I can in whatever words read more

Mamotte! Lollipop (Anime) add
Chiibi
.......let's get one thing straight.

Shoujo is my favorite demographic.
Fantasy and Romance are my favorite genres.

But Mamotte Lollipop is one of the absolute worst series I have ever seen even though it should totally be my thing.

"LAZY".
That's the main word that comes to mind to describe this show. It is so lazy. ZERO effort was put into this. I'll elaborate:

Story: The story is rather stupid. You already read the summary, yeah? It seems like one that can be so easily solved like "why not just do this" but it's like the characters are too dumb to suggest that. Don't get me started on the script and read more

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a truly unique show. It's one of those rare shows that defines its own standard and redraws boundaries of what should and should not be done with aesthetics and fight scenes. The clothes are fabulous, the action is ridiculous, the voice-acting exudes energy, the poses are awe-inspiring, and the soundtrack is a treat for the ears.

When speaking of other anime you can usually use comparisons to pigeonhole that show into a category, but JoJo is pretty much a category in and of itself. No other show has dialogue like JoJo, a story like JoJo, art style like JoJo, characters like JoJo, read more

Overview:

Since I reviewed Evangelion yesterday, today I will review the first movie End of Evangelion. I have not actually seen the new reboots yet, but I sure remember watching this one.

Plot:

First some background info,

Although today in 2014, the ending of the original Evangelion is hailed by Eva fans as an example of Anno's unequivocal brilliance. In 1995, many fans at the time including famous mangaka and HUGE Eva fan Nobuhiro Watsuki, expressed anger and frustration at the original ending. To appease the upset fandom, Anno made this movie. However, since Anno...is Anno he decided to make an ending that was even more ambiguous, surreal, read more

Tonari no Yamada-kun (Anime) add
angelsreview
This is a very different show then what Studio Ghibli has done before, talking more about a regular family and not having a continuing plot. In my mind, this could have been a couple of 15 minute shorts more then a actual movie and it probably would of done a bit better since as I watched, I became very confused. They time skip a lot making it sometimes hard to figure out where we are in the story but then there are things that really don’t need a time too.

The characters really don’t have anything that actually makes them stand out. They are just read more

Mushibugyou (Anime) add
AdunToridas11
When i first saw Mushibugyou it reminded of a combination of Fairy Tail and Katanagatari but the they fight against huge bugs. If you´re a fan for story driven animes this might not be you´re type although i really liked the characters wich hade each its unique background and fighting teqnique.
None of the main characters plays plays a damsel in distress throughout the entire series and its filled with filled with enjoyable side stories and fighting sequences. Personally i enjoyod it very much although not as much as katanagatari or Fairy tale but if you´re a fan of either of them or a fan of read more

Seihou Bukyou Outlaw Star (Anime) add

*English Dub, Spoiler-free*
Review #1 – Outlaw Star

Outlaw Star could most certainly be a symbol of late 90s anime with it's dark and gritty atmosphere, philosophical underlying themes, plots involving crime and criminal organizations, the almost standard anti-hero protagonist and adult oriented “edgy” humor, all with a cyberpunk-ish sci-fi dressing, it's almost a combination of all the most popular elements of anime during it's early integration in the west, and that very fact could either be it's selling point or it's damnation for a possible viewer.

You see, if you're like me and the above elements I listed interest you, than you'll be pleased to know read more

Flame-retardant vest? Check. Bulletproof underwear? Check. Bubble wrap shoes? Check. Driving the Popemobile? Check. I am now strapped in and prepared to suffer the consequences of writing a negative take on a seemingly popular series.

I thoroughly believe there are roughly three categories when it comes to making anime. There’s the first, the wants of the audience take priority. These series are made solely for pleasing a demographic and are essentially hoping to make money off careful implementation of features that they believe their target audience want. They tend to pick up on flavour of the year traits and use them to their advantage. There’s the read more

Sakigake!! Cromartie Koukou (Anime) add
literaturenerd



Overview

Cromartie is a very silly anime about a school for juvenile delinquents. To say the humor in this show is random would be the understatement of the century. Despite the show's whimsical nature, this is actually the only anime that all of my friends universally like. This isn't Eva or Elfen Lied where people will argue until they are blue in the face that "THIS RULES" or "THIS SUCKS!" Pretty much everyone likes Cromartie.

Plot: 5/10

There really isn't much of a plot in this one. Each episode is an independent event about the wild shenanigans at Cromartie. There are a few running gags that read more

Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta (Anime) add
ddrcrono
**No spoilers** The Pilot's Love Song is a mix of drama, romance and action, though I would say it leans toward primarily being a drama. The show starts with a relatively easygoing feeling, but gets much more serious by the halfway point and remains so until the end.

The main theme that this series focuses on is the reality of war, which includes the concepts of overcoming fear, accepting loss and the importance of forgiveness through love. There is a fairly decent-sized cast of side characters without being too overwhelming, and there are several romantic interests among them which helps to keep your interest even if read more

Jarrbearr
Children are no easy task to take care of. They require a lot of attention and patience to deal with. As a child, I was reckless and very stubborn. I'm glad my parents dealt with me and loved me for who I am. Though when a family member dies, a person can change in a way to make them more secluded and feeling alone, but when someone reaches out to you with love and care, they can change back.

The story follows a girl named Rin and she was an unknown child belonging to an old man named Souichi and when he dies, she's left alone. read more

//In short:

>For whom is it?
For ones who likes MMO thematic, fantasy genre and to watch for character's relationships and stories.

Shokugeki no Souma (Manga) add
SayoZuki
If you like typical shounen battle manga and ecchi but want a new taste this manga is for you. It's a Slight Ecchi Cooking Battle Manga (^ ^). Lots of tension, suspense, cliffhangers, satisfying wins, well MC does lose, but rarely because of MC protection. Art is great it's drawn by Saeki Shun who aslo did 'Our Love Counseling' great oneshot btw. Lots of foodgasm scene (LOL) basically scenes where the characters get orgasms after eating the delicious food (yum yum). Great story, MC trying to be the top in a hard to graduate 'superior elite school'. Action, yes, lots of action battles everywhere (It's read more

Akuma no Riddle (Anime) add
LunamariaHawke
Welcome to Myojou Academy, where chosen assassins get to participate in Class Black-by killing the target, they can get any reward they want.

Akuma no Riddle is about Haru Ichinose, the target of Class Black, and Tokaku, one of the assassins who turned into her protector. Their personalities compliment each other-Haru is naive, cheerful, and bubbly, while Tokaku is often serious and all business. It's fun to see how they interact.

Now on to the other characters-the assassins who will be making attempts at Haru's life. Because of the show's set up, the anime is episodic, with an episode focusing on one assassin at the time. This read more

Memories (Anime) add
Jiyuuryuudou
Memorable experience (notice the pun) as a whole, re-watch value feels high too. First of the trio (Magnetic Rose) is an outstanding piece of mind-blowing scifi creativity. The other two are also good in their own ways but Magnetic Rose kind of outshines them in my opinion, that's all. Would most definitely recommend this.

MAGNETIC ROSE:
A true masterpiece of space science fiction. Hands down one of the most memorable and creative pieces of anime I have seen. Suprising and mesmerizing, visually stunning, clever and quite an emotion/thought-provoker. Every part works well in this audiovisual space novel thriller masterpiece, is that enough hype? Also flows read more
