I've read plenty of the reviews of War in the Pocket that sum up my feelings toward the OVA, lauding its unconventional focus on civilians. I'll get to that aspect of the storyline toward the end--it's this OVA's crown jewel, but I'd like to offer a little background first.

War in the Pocket is one of the handful of OVA supplements to the very first Mobile Suit Gundam of 1979 (among others including 08th MS Team and Stardust Memory). If you're invested in Gundam's UC Timeline, I'd suggest checking out all these OVA's before watching Zeta for some extra insight into the world of Gundam. Created read more

Tokyo Ghoul (Anime) add
Stark700
Horror movies are amusing at times to watch. Sure, their intent is to strike fear into viewers but most times, they are so predictable and saturated with tropes that it almost seems like a cruel joke. Tokyo Ghoul doesn’t derive far from that. Despite being much longer than a typical horror movie, the series plays around with itself so much that it almost becomes a laughter stock. Don’t get me wrong though. The intriguing idea of supernatural creatures known as ‘ghouls’ living among human communities is quite well-built when it comes with premise. However, the show ultimately kills itself with its execution. Based off of read more

Do you have a really big "to watch" list? Do you ask yourself "which anime should I watch first?" If yes then don't choose this one...

You know how most shows start off slow and then gradually increase pace? This anime is the complete opposite, after watching the first couple episodes, I was like "this looks promising" ...few episodes later it turns out I was completely wrong, I am pushing myself to finish each episode.

The characters are so mainstream: nerd guy who looks strong at first but then turns out to be the weakest of the bunch, weak girl that always complains about being weak, read more

Durarara!! (Anime) add
WillSilva98
Synopsis: Ryuugamine Mikado encounters many interesting people and is soon immersed in the Ikebukuro secret and becomes part of the goings on in Ikebukuro.

Story:(9/10) The story of Durarara!! is quite amazing and is set the city of Ikebukuro following the lives of many characters who are part of different gangs most notably the Dollars. The story follows Mikado and how he starts a new life in Ikebukuro and encounters new and interesting people including the black rider. The story is pretty good especially in the first 12 episodes and the remaining episodes are engaging and pretty good story wise.

Art(9/10) The art is simply amazing in read more

Ping Pong The Animation (Anime) add
Caterlyn
The premise of Ping Pong: The Animation is to provide an insight into the lives of a group of young Ping Pong players who play at the highest level of competition for their age group. The show’s protagonist, Tsukimoto, who bears the nickname Smile due to his unfriendly and joyless disposition is reluctantly put through a harsh training regime by an old veteran of the sport; Butterfly Jo. Charming, well-paced and clichéd in all the right ways (see classic reluctant relationship between mentor and pupil) whilst still feeling original and packed full of well-developed and relatable characters, Ping Pong offers a very rewarding journey to read more

Zero Mello or Cello Mellow

Every chapter presents a different story and character name but the character art and pairing is the same

I liked every chapter, it has a light and good story to it, it is not boring unlike other BL themed manga that have different stories for every chapter. The manga is focused on a story and not the usual kissing and touching stuff. Some of the stories deserve a manga of its own.

Its a good manga
I'll recommend it to otakus who are new or wants to try yaoi or shounen ai mangas ^-^

A-1 Pictures has taken a shot to make a Real Robot series and they have done a good job in my opinion
Story: 9/10
Only a few series like Armored Trooper VOTOMs and Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team give the protagonists mass produced grunt units as opposed to super powered prototypes. In ALDNOAH.ZERO, the best the protagonists have are KG-6 Sleipnirs which are just training prototypes for the highly expendable KG-7 Aerion Kataphrakts. These orange grunts have to battle highly overpowered Martian Kataphrkats such as the Nilokeras (or as I like to call it "Fat Eva").So they usually win through Inaho's ingenuity; setting traps with read more

Oh! Super Milk-chan (Anime) add

Overview:

Back in the early 2000s when anime actually still aired on American TV, the Adult Swim program block on Cartoon Network was by far the most succesful in terms of viewer ratings for anime. Other channels like Syfy tried, but weren't able to really find an audience. Adult Swim for the most part stuck with very generic and safe shonen series like Naruto, Inuyasha, Code Geass, and other shows that they knew had no chance of failing. If you wonder why Adult Swim never went further out on a limb and tried airing less conventional anime like Spice and Wolf or Mushishi. The answer is read more

Tokyo Ghoul (Anime) add
mercury1980
Tokyo Ghoul is directed by Shuhei Morita which was based on a manga by Sui Ishida.

STORY (8):

The story follows Ken Kaneki, a college student who meets a woman named Rize Kamishiro at Anteiku, a coffee shop. They share an interest in literature and plan a date. However, Rize attacked Kaneki and it was revealed that Rize was a ghoul, human-like beast that feeds on human flesh. While Rize tries to kill Kaneki for good, she was crushed by a falling platform. Both Kaneki and Rize are sent to hospital. The doctor decided to transplant Rize's organs into Kaneki's. So from now on, Kaneki has to read more

Rail Wars! (Anime) add
mercury1980
The title should be called "Oppai Wars".

STORY (2):

The story takes place in a nationalized railway system in Japan that was not privatized. Naoto Takayama and the gang are trained to become securities by doing physical training and learning how to operate trains.

In going to see this anime, I have no expectations because from the first 3 episodes, they show us fanservice like skirt blown by the wind to reveal panties, man accidentally landing on a woman with his hands grabbing her boobs. If I see another of such thing happening, I would snap.

Basically my expectations will be determined by the trailer and the first few read more

A short movie that will play your emotions. Happy, sad, desperate, heart-breaking story is combined into this one hour movie.

The story itself isn't bad. It has a good concept and also the way they show it is good. But just one, this movie lack of story, there's nothing to tell except Tohno and Akari's love and Sumida who in crush with him. One more point is that there is no serious conflict, just full of beauty in one hour. It's like daily life. You make relationship, you break it, you forget it. Just as simple as that.

The art is just flawless. they're just doing their read more

ATCdomination
Ah, Tokyo Ghoul. A very divisive show indeed. This is the first time I feel inclined to write a review for a show, simply because of the very mixed response it seems to be getting from most people.

THE GIST OF IT: Tokyo Ghoul is a very good show. Putting aside whether or not it is a good ADAPTION or not, no one can deny that it has some quality production value. It you enjoy action with a little horror, I can easily recommend this show for you.

STORY (8/10): This adaption of the Tokyo Ghoul manga is about a alternate universe, where there exist both read more

If you´ve watched no game no life and cant have enough of the premise that takes place then this anime is the closest that it gets to that anime. Personally i still think no game no life is much better but this one has the same charm and enjoyment that no game no life has. the biggest difference between the two in the story is that in this anime its three main characters and they are all from different dimensions. But that didnt disturbe me , but what did disturbe me however is that there where far to many holes in the story and plots read more

To start off, I'm really disappointed that this is ranked so low on myanimelist. Can't believe the lack of love for ANC!

tl;dr- watch it if yr a fan of shoujo love stories, but with a twist (think psycho pass-esque dark themes littered throughout), watch it if you want to have a good cry, watch it if you are currently bumming around and have nothing to watch...its definitely a 'must watch' on my top 10 list.

Story:

Maybe I haven't watched enough anime, but I think that this is one of the most heartwrenching shoujo anime out there. Though Fushigi Yuugi (another work by read more

I am really surprised that there aren't many viewers for this show on MAL.
When compared to the shows of this type , it stands way out from the ones like YGO Gx and Zexal.

Now on to the review.......

Cardfight Vanguard is a card based anime , a genre which many might skip. Despite being a card based Anime it has very good story line and Good cast of Characters. A plot were main Character is very weak and timid to start with ans stays like that for most part of the show. On his way to become a better person and a better fighter he meets read more

deinja
Before taking a look at the entire review, I'd suggest you'd watch the main arc -- basically the entire thing, besides the epilogue as it doesn't add much. Binge-watching a thirteen-part anime is easy, anyways. Right?


Stella C3 baits its viewers charmingly. To those who were lured in by the idea of moe girls shooting firearms in a "convincing" environment, they were in for a surprising well-established plot; focusing on the development of characters through the relatable aspects of the lost sense of belongingness in between social terms and themselves, and all the way to metaphors of the horrors of war, statements on abandonment on the read more

Gantz (Anime) add
homicidal_maniac
Despite my fondness of genres like drama, romance and the like, I am a guy by the end of it all. As such, there are moments where I just crave mindless entertainment full of action, blood/gore, boobs, etc. and shows like Hellsing Ultimate fill that niche quite well. But before I ever found out about Hellsing Ultimate, there was this little show called "Gantz" that occupied the role of mindless entertainment for me. Unless you've been living under a rock for however long you've been an anime/manga fan, you should've happened across that name at least once. Gantz has a reputation for being the most read more

stream_eon's review is a very accurate take on this season. It pretty much summed up this season perfectly.
"Too much rooting for Yuuta and Rikka's relationship development. I'm reminding you, there is a PROGRESS here but others just want more."

Many people felt that there were close to no romantic development between the 2 characters which is ridiculously absurd. As long as you have a pair of eyes and actually sat down to watch the anime you will know that EVERY SINGLE EPISODE had developments where they get closer to each other. People are just expecting too much like in a fairytale where everything happens in read more

I hadn't watched Eureka Seven since I was 10 when it aired on Cartoon Network At 10:30. My bed time was ten. I would do what ever I could to stay up and watch it. Until my older brother convinced my mom that it is a inappropriate show. I recently decided to rewatch. It only took like 4 days for me. All I can say is it was the best decision in my life. It is honestly a absolutely AMAZING show!!!!

Between the wonderful animation, Love able characters, beautiful storyline. And even just the happy feeling that it leaves in you. Eureka read more
