It’s time to duel, this time with the protagonists from the first three Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series. But how does this 10th anniversary movie for the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise stack up? As a note, prior to watching this movie I have only seen the first series.

A mysterious figure is traveling through time and causing problems involving the destruction of Duel Monsters and the world, and the three Yu-Gi-Oh! heroes must join together with the magical power of time travel to defeat this new nemesis in an epic card game. It is a simple story, which is fitting of a movie that only spans around 45 minutes, excluding read more

Free! (Anime) add
Take Free! for what it is, a fan service sports anime, and you will not be disappointed.

This isn't to say that men can't enjoy this show, but just don't expect it to be something it's not. It's a sports show aimed at a female audience. Instead of the sports matches being dynamic and action packed, they are visually stunning to watch. The sports scenes have amazing artistic detail and flow, coupled with the realistic water sound effects and dramatic music (to enhance the emotions of a scene). I re-watched this purely for how breathtakingly beautiful the art is.

The main story is read more

Haha. Zombie-loving girl, sweet and a little tsundere lolis, a famous tough macho dude, a weak pathetic fellow and etc. What else can one ask for? Overall, the art is supeeeeeerrrrrr (franky voice) The moe and loliness can't be resist for more than 30 seconds. You'll get often nosebleeds from time to time due to the three or more heroines. Welcome to this slap-stick comedy of a shop filled with many peopleeee!

No Game No Life (Anime) add
(Note: I have not read the light novel and I will write this as if I didn't know that it was an adaptation of a light novel)

Certainly not my favourite anime of all time, but I certainly enjoyed No Game No Life. It certainly wasn't what was expecting going into it (reading a recommendation I thought it was them trapped in a video game), but I think that the way it is designed is quite cool either way. Also, the series is quite funny a lot of the time and quite dark at other times.

The storyline was quite interesting, especially the ideas of the read more

Kokoro Connect:

When I first heard of Kokoro Connect I wasn't really all that interested to be honest. As from what it tells you it's that it's a whole series that revolves around five high school students: Taichi Yaegashi (our main lead), Iori Nagase, Himeko Inaba, Yoshifumi Aoki, and Yui Kiriyama who all form a club called the "Student Concial Society" (or StuCS for short) which is a paper for the school.

I thought there was no way an thirteen episode series could be carried on the cliche of switching bodies. However, I quickly came to reilize how dead wrong I was when I got absolutely hooked read more

C: Control for short is probably one of the most misunderstood, under appreciated shows in anime. Many people gloss over the show, since it is slow moving, very psychological and introspective, and most of all very economically founded, so that the terminology is alienating for those with no background in economics. So, to set the record straight, here I am with my take on the show C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control.

*This review contains NO SPOILERS. Please read on at NO RISK*

Story: C: Control has a unique story, I will avoid describing it as it is one of the biggest strengths the show read more

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! (Anime) add
Story: 8
The best thing of it is that while watching this anime, you do not regret it at all. The story may be somehow simple, but it is handled really well. As a viewer, there is no feeling of something missing, just like there is not too much. It's a hard-to-find balance, and here it is achieved.
There is also attention to some minor thing, that are just neglected in many anime I've seen so far.
The fact that it's offered a breeze on the past of the secondary characters as well surely does not hurt.
It's not a 10 for the only because I reserve that for read more

Non Non Biyori OVA (Anime) add
If you enjoyed the series, then you'll enjoy this just as much.

The Non Non Biyori OVA is essentially episode 13 of the show. They didn't really deviate from the usually setting and characters.

I was pretty hyped to see more of this show and was not disappointed. More of our favorite characters. More countryside eye candy. Great soundtrack and wildlife sounds. The OVA is just as soul soothing as the show.

If you need more relaxation in your life or are anxiously awaiting season two, then this OVA will not disappoint.

That's about all I can say about this. Thank you for reading this review and if you read more

The story undergoes three parts. Without spoiling it, the first part of the story is phenomenal. Great plot which gets you hooked. As the story goes on, the plot gets less intense, and by the end it's rather silly. However, as the plot goes on, it becomes less about what's happening to the cast, so much as what is happening between them. The character evolution is great and even with a so-so story at the end, the characters make the show interesting and worth watching all the way through.

Tenkuu Danzato Skelter Heaven (Anime) add
If you've come to watch a piece of trash, then you've came to the right place! Tenkuu Danzato Skelter Heaven makes Mars Of Destruction look decent. Yes, its that bad.

The Story doesn't make any sense what so ever.
The art is disgusting and often goes from 2D to 3D and just generally looks stupid.
The voice acting is also terrible and just sounds very unprofessional.

Overall i gave this OVA a rating of 1. Don't ever watch this. you'll be wasting 20 minutes of your life.

Ookiku Furikabutte (Anime) add
This is a solid anime. Take it for what it is, a slice of life sports anime about first year high school students, and you will like it. I would categorize the feeling of it as "cute" in a young teen boys and their enthusiasm for a sport.

The story is simple, it follows the main protagonist, a first year baseball club member, and his team. I like it because they act like first year students. The athleticism, isn't over-the-top completely, unbelievable (though of course it is not realistic, but what sports anime has realistic athleticism?). You will find out a little back story for read more

Toriko (Anime) add
Well, i get kinda crazy when I talk about Toriko because i watched all the episodes and I didn't get regrets about the hours that i spent awake, laughing and eating together, alone in the dark. This mix of gourmet content with fighting, is so catchy and strong to me.

Some people say that Toriko hasn't history and the fights are weak, some people say that the manga is so much better than anime, but, when we're laughing about the comedy on anime or manga, it pass a message about nature, that it can't be ignored.

So, i can't wait for the continuation of anime because read more

M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane (Anime) add
Nothing about this anime works. It tries to fit into themes "too much".

1. Too much mystery with too slow of a pace.
I'm on the fourth episode, I don't plan to watch the fifth. I still have no idea what is going on, beside there being a dark void in the world and mecha fighting. Why, how, where, what, when? No information is elaborated on further than the anime summary. Because of this, there is no intrigue. I don't care about the characters, I don't care to find out what happens to them. Why? Because I know nothing about them or the situation further than read more

I've read many, many shoujo mangas. I was expecting something with the usual shoujo plot when I read the summary: A young girl who has an older man protect her, and they fall in love.

I was wrong. As I read deeply into this manga, I fell deeply in love with it. This manga is, in my opinion, fantastic. It's evenly paced. Plot twists aren't rushed, and they aren't pushed onto the reader suddenly. The pace isn't too slow, nor is it too fast. It's just right. And the plot is, in my opinion, very original. I haven't read anything like it. This is definitely read more

Hunter x Hunter (2011) (Anime) add
For me the best anime of all time. This is the only anime i watched that after rewriting it the whole series I still enjoying starting from all over again and still extremely enjoy the whole series. For me all of the powers involved in this series is much more realistic if you compared them to those who is superpowered. Overall, this is the best anime i can recommend to anyone.

I saw this on an airplane, and this is the first Detective Conan anime I have seen, so my review may seem myopic. This review is of the movie as a standalone film, which I admit may seem unfair because it is part of such a longstanding and successful franchise.

Overall, the movie was enjoyable but did not leave me completely satisfied. Perhaps this was because the whole time the story felt like a side story. The characters keep alluding to "them" (Black Organization) throughout the film and there are far too many characters that split up the story. It is hard to really know who read more

Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi (Anime) add
This is one of those cases when the synopsis, while being absolutely correct, seems to promise a completely different experience from the one you're about to get. I went into this series expecting a plot driven show where most of the intrigue comes from the world itself, which seemed the case early one, since the beginning of the show focuses on the world's rules, people being unable to die, the Gravekeepers and whatnot. Later on, though, attention starts being shifted to character exploration and eventually Ai, the lead, just flat out says she has completely forgotten about her role as a Gravekeeper.

So, if one were read more

Waaaaah, what is this? Throughout the entire movie, I had my eyes captivated on the art. The amount of details were spectacular and unique in everyway.
It's was of course, like eye p0rn to me. Okay to be honest, this movie may be sad or maybe not to much to others. For me, I didn't cry but I still enjoyed it for it's unique art and outstanding potential of the plot. The end was just so heart moving. It made me wonder, "why don't we have more animes like this? Instead of those shoujo, romantic, and harem's that we get all year long?". Of course, I'm read more

Amagami SS (Anime) add
-Possible Spoilers
- I have the second season in mind.

If you are a harem fan you would probably at least once ask the question, "What if the main character chose the other girl." Amagami SS is the answer to that question. I'm a big harem fan, but was never the romance specific type; that was until I watched Amagami SS.

-Story: You are introduced to the story with Tachibana Junichi. He was stood up by a girl on Christmas Eve 2 years ago, and now he has given up on love. The story follows with that mindset at the start of each story arc. Each arc read more

Jewelpet Tinkle (Anime) add
I have to say that many will judge this anime just by the cover that is shown, as you can obviously see is magical pets and some fantasy girls going "YATA!" and sprinkle kawaii dust everywhere. But I will tell on my point of view of this anime. This anime seemed like an anime for little kid when I first watched this I had thoughts like yours, but after going into to fluffiness of joy and happy tinkle I was like "ok that's it. I'm not stopping this anime until that girl gets her guy." Because innocence is everywhere and to all those girls out read more
