Elfen Lied (Manga) add
ToyPrince
A beautiful, beautiful piece of work to say the least – a special thank you to the creator: Lynn Okamoto! This manga captured the shocking revelation of a true human society that was thought unknown, whilst still evoking emotion with every blood and tear drop. The manga leaves the reader with an internal conflict, rendering them unable to deduce right from wrong – were the actions of Lucy ever justifiable given her constantly miserable circumstances?

The ending, from what I’ve gathered, has been highly censured; it wasn’t some asinine, outrageous ending, it was just considered… ‘Unpopular’. I, personally, fail to see any alternate read more

One Outs (Anime) add
ktulu007
One Outs was a baseball manga written by Kaitani Shinobu. It was adapted into an anime by our old friends at Madhouse, who brought us such classics as Black Lagoon, Petshop of Horrors and Rideback. Unfortunately, they've also been behind some of the worst anime I've ever seen such as Highschool of the Dead and Devil Hunter Yohko. I'm honestly not predicting their best work this time around, although a lot of that is more to do with the subject matter than anything else. I am not a person who cares about sports in the slightest. So, let's look at One Outs and see if read more

Black Jack (Anime) add
THEAnimeHERO
Possibly the best introduction to Osamu Tezuka's Black Jack. This OVA series features a more mature & darker tone than its other anime counterparts. The focus of this version is Black Jack's character as he is portrayed more mysterious here especially when Pinoko is hardly around.

Black Jack is known as the surgeon with the hands of god as he can accomplish difficult feats in medical science. The appeal of this doctor is his lack of a license therefore asking for huge sums of money & often dealing with shady customers such as mafia & the like. While his motivations can be unclear at first, read more

While life teaches us that there are greater things in life than money, C tells us a story of a world where money is all that matters.

Story: 9
The story focuses on a 19 years old boy, Kimimaro Yoga who is forced to fight in a different world in order to survive in the real one. Yoga is our tipical teenager who suddenly finds himself involved in some kind of a supernatural issue and has no idea what is going on. That's when Msyu, his "asset", comes and rescues him from the very first fight. Later he meets Souichirou Mikuni, one of the most powerful characters read more

Noragami (Manga) add
NatsuofFairyTail
After watching the anime version of Noragami, i couldn't sit still. I absolutely needed to know more of the story! And as a result, it has led me to read the manga, and i can tell you right now, it has become one of my favorite mangas.

Out of all the Supernatural/God/Phantom genres i have read, Noragami has surprised me. Not because it had a original storyline, but the depth of the plot, and the overall lesson it teaches you at the end of each arc.The plot balances the amount of action, comedy and romance (yes there's romance) well and most importantly, flashbacks don't last an read more

Uwagaki (Manga) add
JizzyHitler
As much as I'm a sucker for the romance genre even i have to admit they are a source of tedium through common cliches and contrived drama especially in the face of love triangles. After a long familiarity with said contrivances Uwagaki, a sci-fi slice of life romantic dramedy, acts as a breath of fresh air utilizing one of the most unique ideas of a technical love triangle in addition to drama that actually feels warranted and natural resulting in a incredibly enjoyable experience that stands out from the thousands of romance manga out there.

The premise drips with potential from the very first chapter. read more

Log Horizon (Anime) add
thenwhowasphone
I really liked Log Horizon season 1's story because there is a very stead y progression of the narrative. What may seem to be a filler episode never fails to remind us that Shiro has something planned or the enemies are plotting something. The show also had an excellent balance of humor and drama.

The art was nothing special for me but it was above average. Scenes were well animated.

The opening song, goddamn, that was one of the best I've heard in a while. Gets you really pumped up. The ending song was not bad as well.

Shiro was a 10/10 for me. I can empathize with read more

Cowboy Bebop (Anime) add
YungShabbaRanks
Cowboy Bebop is different from other anime in that it does not focus on a linear storyline to progress through the series. It is like a series of short stories that all use the same characters in different scenarios to see how they react when presented with a challenge. However, not all the sessions are disconnected. As we get further into the series, we delve into the past of each character, which gives us a better understanding of how and why each of them act the way they do. This show is more character driven than anything, and because of the memorable characters it provides, read more

Yami Shibai (Anime) add
unpopulartomoko
I've always been a fan of creepy urban legends, so when I heard about Yami Shibai, I simply had to watch it. Each episode is around 5 minutes long, but it works perfectly for the genre, as it leaves you wondering what the heck happened to the characters after the story.
It's not the best thing ever, but I'd still recommend watching it if you're looking for something quick.
Just a warning though, try to watch it when it's still light outside.

KazuyaKujo
This mystery anime first seems to be a series of crimes that have yet to be solved. However, the crimes all have plot twists that make them interesting. When the Story develops, its revealed that some of the smaller mysteries in the beginning return and are part of a bigger scheme altogether. The story is excellently built up and enjoyable to anyone who likes suspenseful anime

(NO SPOILERS! If you have not seen the Prequel to this anime there will be no spoilers either)

This is my first review in a while and my last one was not very popular so I'm going to do this review as best I can. First off, if you have not seen this show at all including its prequel do yourself a favor, watch the prequel first, it will give you a much better experience watching the show after. Also, if you have seen the prequel and have not but are going to start the main story know that 10 years has passed and Kenshin read more

Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai (Anime) add
AdvancedSoul
This is my first review, so... be gentle, s-s-senpai. :$

Having watched all three seasons of "The World Only God Knows", I can safely assume this is, perhaps, one of my favorite animes I've ever watched until now! Sometimes, it will kill you with laughter, while others, it will rip your emotions mercilessly; sometimes, it will make your heat race, upon a "conquest", but, all the times, if will certainly tie you to the show. You will inevitably want to know what will happen next, after a certain episode, and, thus, occupy all your time, until you realize you're laughing maniacally at 3 am if front read more

Eureka Seven AO (Anime) add
noponen
AO has defenitely too much hate on it. In my opinion AO was a good anime if you won't expect too much on it.
I think it would have been better if it could have as many episodes as Eureka 7 but it didn't, so it felt a little half-assed.

AO was great to watch but after watching it, when you start to think the things it didn't have (compared to Eureka 7) it doesn't look good at all. That is why it should be watched without any prejudice and expectations.

If you are a person that loves something so much that you will watch any read more

Castle Mango (Manga) add
AvidRobot
I thought this manga was very well written and had some great characters. I wish it was a bit longer, but I think I am still fairly pleased with how it ended. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for yaoi with more of a story & content (and not just sex scenes). I was also pleased that the characters were more realistic and not easily divided between that "uke & semi" thing that seems to be big in yaoi. Each character had their own personality, which added to the story. I feel that the book also had a lot of powerful themes. read more

One Outs (Anime) add
theshinyone
One Outs, despite being an anime about baseball, is unique and very different from the rest. The setting is instead utilized to tell the story of Tokuchi, a pitcher who appears weak, but has unique tools at his disposal - the ability to read the human psyche, to read situations, to manipulate friend and foe, and his unique pitches which utilize his talents to their fullest.

The anime covers how Tokuchi cleverly outsmarts and outplays his opponents, despite being bogged down by many things, ranging from having to face better opponents, cheating opponents, dealing with his weak team and useless manager, and even dealing with the read more

Suffering from NTR depression?
THIS IS FOR YOU!

The romance, comedy and story probably changed my perspective on plotted hentai. The art style was my preference, hell it made me jerk off to a bunch of old ladies wtf. The hentai did a good job of not revealing some 'parts/scenes' so the viewer wouldn't have as much NTR depression. I'm a sucker for NTR, but this fetish can still damage my head and make me depressed. So this is why I gave this hentai a 10/10. This genre, is like a stress-relieving medicine from NTR.

Anyways, the ending of this series just made be laugh so hard at read more

Valkyria Chronicles is an anime that is based from a PS3 game. The game is well received and surprisingly the anime also good. The anime isn't rushed and ended well. It isn't leave a plot hole (well. maybe a little bit but you can just ignore it lol).

Story 9:
The story is pretty mainstream and simple actually. It is about war of two nations. Then the two main characters that was meet accidentally become a friend and determined to stop the war. That's it. So why I gave 9? Well because there are many other things that make the story great and fun to watch. The read more

Log Horizon (Anime) add
OtakuLair
I must admit, before I start this review, that going into this Anime I had two things in mind: Firstly that it would be a cheap rip off of S.A.O and Secondly that my expectations for this Anime where very low, quite low that I was very hesitant to start it, and only did so because MAL had it rated quite high.
After saying that though, it is not a cheap rip off of S.A.O however I can’t say that my expectations were not met, now without any more waiting on to the review.

Story: 7

UQ Holder! (Manga) add

UQ Holder

This manga is really nothing to write home about so i'll write a review of it instead.
I didn't think much of it when i picked it up and unfortunately it stayed that way.
The world and the possibilities of the story are interesting but most if not all characters are bland cardboard cutouts, i'll talk more about those later.

STORY

Magic and Vampires sounds cool; really cool actually and the manga starts quite nicely with some character backgrounds and what not. Turns out the main characters parents died in a car crash and he was then adopted by a young woman who turned out to read more

Princess Lover! (Anime) add
Sketto
First time writing a review.
I tend to rate my MAL list lower than the standard rating to distinguish the difference in rating of my favorite ones, but for this review I'll use a standard rating to make life easier.

Before deconstructing in detail, let's talk about the good things about this anime(skip this part if you want)
Pros:
Unique characters
Plot (aka boobs)
Great balance of ecchi and comedy/humour.
Fast paced comedy really catches your attention
Not too forceful with the fan-service (besides ep 6)
Cons:
Cliche story progression (I personally like it but most people may not)

The art was good, but it didn't really stand out.
I really liked the sound. The read more
