Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu (Anime) add
SpinDoctor
This is the very first anime that has inspired me to write a review, and I have watched MANY anime over the years. It isn't necessarily the best anime I have watched nor is it my favorite, but despite this fact it was one of the more compelling and intriguing series that I have watched. This is very surprising to me, because I found many flaws in the way it was executed.

Densetsu's first flaw, and arguably its largest is the pacing of the story. For the first half of the anime not much happens. The anime comes off as cliche, repetitive. Ryner, the male read more

Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction is the first Pokemon film in a while that features some fresh ideas and creative moments. In the vein of the last few, it's also an unambitious work stuck in a rut.

Near the end of the film, there's a great scene with Ash and five antagonists awaking Yveltal. The ensuing attempts to kidnap Diancie and run away from the harbinger of death are joyously written. These scenes make only a tiny portion of the film overall, but they stand out from the cookie-cutter writing we're usually treated with in these films.

The good thing about this one is that read more

Oh Final Fantasy VII... how you fill me with despair. You know, I really do like Final Fantasy VII. Crisis Core was my first taste of Final Fantasy in general and I still adore it to this day, I had a lot of fun playing through the original PS1 game and I still enjoy playing it every now and then, I loved watching Advent Children with my buddies back in middle school, scouring the Final Fantasy wikia for plot information on all these obscure OVAs and games I could never watch or play because I was too stupid to look them up online, and all read more

milnivek
I first watched this movie in 2004 in university and remember being blown away by the sheer depth of emotions and feelings that this short film manages to convey in the time that the typical shounen anime may have managed to advance the plot by about 2 screams, a power-up and a fireball.

Coming back to this film over 10 years later, I was apprehensive at how my memories of the film would hold up to a rewatch by my older, cynical, 30-something self.

The art is pretty mediocre especially given the advances in animation in the past decade. The faces especially tend to be distorted and read more

Ranma 1/2

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Ranma ½ is a classic 1980s anime, from the animation style to the soundtrack. Genma has a unique tune that plays every time he becomes a panda, and so do other characters. This is a fun and light-hearted anime, where you will laugh at times and shake your head at other times. There are many repeated jokes throughout the series, some of which get worn out after a while, where others stay fresh and get a new spin on them at times. The story does not progress at a decent rate, feeling like a stand still at times, due to read more

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Chaika – The Coffin Princess has a vibrant animation style with a lot of color. It is quick to get things rolling in the story with a fast-paced and exciting first episode. There is magic in the world, but there is a different spin on it that makes it unique and intriguing. There are a lot of unique weapons that also keep you interested in the anime.

Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus (Anime) add
glaceon_cute
I have read the manga till the latest chapter. Tbh, I don't really remember much about this Arc in the manga, since it was 4 years ago. When I heard about this anime is being released, my reaction is probably like other manga fans: "Wow, I'm glad. But I'm scared". Yes, I was afraid that the legendary A-1 Studio would ruin this series again with their "impressive endings and plot" (I'm looking at you, season 2). However, until this point, I have nothing to complain about it anymore. They are faithful to manga. You don't know how happy I am with this.

Selector Infected WIXOSS

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Selector Infected WIXOSS gives several twists on the classic “Card Game” anime. The card game itself is not explained in detail, but the basics are fairly obvious as more battles occur. However, the anime is not focused on the actual card game, but more on the lives of the Selectors that are in possession of the LRIG cards.

You might enjoy this if: You want a dark fantasy version of the card game genre. If you are not a fan of card games but enjoy the psychological genre, check out Selector Infected WIXOSS. If you enjoyed Madoka Magica, you will read more

Cute High Earth Defense Club Love! / Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu Love!

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans and Breanne Evans

Magical boys…that pretty much sums it up. The story is fairly episodic, with a monster of the week for each episode. The boys power up with a lovely transformation sequence, hip thrust and all, to defeat the monster with their combined love. Of course, there is always a lesson to be learned at the end of the episode.

You might enjoy this if: You want to be adventurous.

Ghost in the Shell

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Ghost in the Shell is an intelligent anime that raises a philosophical question: What makes something a human? It seems straightforward, but it is not clear in Ghost in the Shell. Everybody in Section 9 has cybernetic enhancements, and in the case of Major Motoko, she is a cyborg that can have her conscience moved from one body to another if the body is destroyed. Is Motoko a human? This is the question that Motoko asks herself repeatedly throughout the film.

Blast of Tempest has good ideas and decent writing, but lost my interest with the incredibly slow story progression and drawn out dialogue. Explanations of explanations and single scenes that lasted longer than an episode were a common occurrence.

Death Note is a popular anime and it is easy to see why. It is a quality show that has plenty of character development, a complex storyline, good animation, a quality soundtrack, and a realistic setting combined with supernatural aspects. The show involves a lot of death so the immense popularity does somewhat surprise me, but then again, Attack on Titan is one of the most popular anime out there, and it involves just as much death and maturity.

As previously mentioned, there are a lot of positives to the show. The characters and their development make you feel strongly toward read more

There are several genres of music played, each of them adding to the experience of the show.

This show is not recommended for children.

Kuroko no Basket combines basketball with anime in such a good way. The basics of basketball are there, but they are combined with the action and drama that anime utilizes so well.

Even though Knights of Sidonia is based on the survival of humanity, the story focuses on the inner workings of the Sidonia and its leadership. The story can move slowly at times, but the end reward is well worth the watch. There are several interesting concepts with the new race of humanity. For example, due to a lack of food they have developed a way to use photosynthesis to receive their nutrients, meaning that they rarely eat. Another interesting concept is that there is a third gender. It is a neutral gender read more

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Hoozuki no Reitetsu uses a lot of Japanese mythology and history in its episodes. For example, there are many different levels of Hell for people to be sent to, based on their wrongdoings in life. There is an animal cruelty hell, where people are sent that abused animals in life. In this hell, the animals abuse the people relentlessly. The whole Hell system in the anime runs like the normal world does, with demons taking jobs and being able to travel to the different sub-hells. They even put on festivals and Satan from European Hell comes for a visit.

Psycho-Pass

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Psycho-Pass is a well put together law anime. There are several characters that you grow attached to throughout the series. I appreciated the way the anime blurred the lines between good and evil, because it is true that there is not always a distinct line between the two. The future presented in Psycho-Pass is believable. It reminds me of the film Minority Report in the way that the police are attempting to prevent crime by scanning people to see if they are bound to commit a crime in the future.

Highschool of the Dead is a journey into the world of the zombie apocalypse. It is an entertaining anime to watch because it combines a lot of different genres.

Let me start off by stating that Hakuouki is one of my favorite animes. Because both the television series and the movie are based off the otome game, there are many similarities between the two, but also many differences. Each one has its own strengths and weaknesses. The movie can be watched by itself, however, watching the series would help you better understand the characters.

There are a few aspects of the anime that I did not agree with, but overall I feel that it was put together well and I did enjoy it a great deal.

I first watched Hellsing years ago and was so impressed that I went back and started watching it again. Alucard is an anti-hero that you grow to love. I really enjoy Victoria as a character, although I know that there are a lot of strong feelings both ways for her out in the anime community. Hellsing is a wonderful anime because it revolves around vampires but does not necessarily feel like a vampire anime.

Madoka Magica

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Madoka Magica is noticeably different from other magical girl anime and you can tell from episode one. Generally speaking, magical girl anime is seen as being more light-hearted and full of friendship. Madoka Magica tip-toes along those lines but then goes into darker territory and does not return.

One of my favorite parts of this anime is the animation that occurs during the various labyrinth scenes. It is quite unique to anime to have the labyrinths animated in such a style. I enjoyed it because it was refreshingly different and new, while being slightly disturbing at times.

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Lovely Complex shows how complicated love can be for kids. There are heartfelt moments, but there are also heart-breaking times. Distorted facial expressions and imaginative situations are used to express how these poor high schoolers feel at times. For example, during one heart breaking moment, a battleship appears with the person’s face on it, and a cannonball is fired to sink the ship. This is the type of comedy used throughout the anime, so if that is the type that you enjoy, check it out.

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

The majority of this slice of life romance focuses on the infatuation of one character with another. This person loves that person, but that person loves another person, and that other person does not know who they love. You get the idea. There is that supernatural aspect of being able to see into the future, but as of this point in the story, it is barely mentioned and not a major focus.

You might enjoy this if: Everybody being in love with someone different is the type of romance that you enjoy watching.

Riddle Story of Devil / Akuma no Riddle

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Riddle Story of Devil is a dark anime that can get twisted at times. You will find out as you learn more about the characters that they are not your average, run of the mill high school assassins. They are all messed up in one way or another.

You might enjoy this if: You want an anime that’s not afraid of getting dark and twisted. Riddle Story of Devil is not for the faint of heart.

Sword Art Online

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Sword Art Online had me captivated from the first five minutes of episode one. The idea of merging the virtual world and the real world was fascinating. As one would imagine, there is a lot of humor based on MMORPGs, so if you have played that type of game, you will surely appreciate the humor. The story is interesting from beginning to end, leaving you always wanting more. There is comedy, action, adventure, drama, sadness, and everything in between.

The Familiar of Zero / Zero no Tsukaima

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

The Familiar of Zero is like Harry Potter anime, with a school of wizardry and everything. However, there are a lot more differences than similarities between the two.

You might enjoy this if: You enjoy witchcraft and wizardry. If you are looking for a comical, magical world, this anime will likely appeal to you.

You might not like it if: You are annoyed by panty jokes and also joke repetition throughout a series.

Note to the Viewer: The Familiar of Zero definitely adds the anime aspect to the wizarding world.

Dennou Coil

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Dennou Coil gives an interesting idea of how technology changes the way we live. The line between reality and virtual reality is not clear. What makes something real? That is the big question that you find yourself asking throughout the anime.

The animation is complementary to the story. The glasses that are worn by many characters do not make the character, they are quite subtle. There are many characters, but they all have their own unique personalities and you tend to have feelings, whether they are positive or negative, about most of the characters. This means that you like some characters read more

I felt that The Irregular at Magic High School went at too slow of a pace for my liking. Every little detail had to be explained. Something would happen for a minute and then the rest of the episode would be characters hashing out why it happened the way it did. If this style is what you enjoy, then this anime is right up your alley.

The concept of magic was interesting and the story had potential, but it was too slow and fell flat in its delivery. Just my opinion.

The first arc I found to be more enjoyable than the second arc, as I felt the second was just slapped on to make the series longer. It didn't really seem to fit in (they could have ended the season after the first arc and everything still would have been okay, no major loose ends that could have contributed toward needing another arc).

I had heard so much about this show from many different sources, but I had never tried to watch it. Only because of a sudden urge to watch anime was I able to fully grasp how good this show is.

Let me just say that the intro is definitely something to drool over like some mindless fanboy. And I don't say that often. A good intro may read more

Ping Pong The Animation (Anime) add
MeraTau
Ping pong is one of those anime shows that prefer minimalism of action and a great deal of thought-provoking flashbacks from the psychological view of a character. This - of course - is not preferable for many of anime fans, but if you are interested in such shows then sit back and watch it because it is one of the best character-wise and has a very unique way of conveying its many messages.

The story of this show hooks the reader from the first episode with its bizarre setting and its simplistic world. The events take place in a normal city and revolves around young sportsmen read more

Following up to the successful Phantom Blood, Hirohiko Araki delivers a perfect example of a good sequel: get everything great about the first and build on it, and get everything bad about the first and improve it. What Araki creates is one of the best direct sequels in manga history.

Story: 8/10
Battle Tendency picks up 50 years after the events of Phantom Blood, around 1940. After the ending of Phantom Blood, Speedwagon moves to America and becomes an insanely rich oil tycoon. He forms the Speedwagon Foundation with the ultimate goal of protecting the Joestar family and killing all vampires. Jonathan's wife, Erina, raises read more

Hotarubi no Mori e (Anime) add
orionator
For something with a pretty basic romantic storyline, Hotarubi no Mori e pulled it off pretty well.

It's easy to follow; a young girl gets lost in an enchanted forest, she meets a spirit, they become friends, they grow up together every summer, they fall in love, and then their love ends. Pretty basic, huh? That's what I loved about it. It was a comfortable watch, you didn't have to think about it too much, but all the emotion is still there.

The script is well written, interspersed with the right amount of humour, with natural conversation flowing between the two main characters. It read more

Tenkuu Danzai Skelter+Heaven (Anime) add

From the genius that brought you "Mars of Destruction" comes..."Skelter Heaven"!

Yoshiteru Satao...That is a name that sends a cold shiver up the spine of any anime critic. This guy isn't just a bad anime director, he is THE bad anime director. Everyone has a director they personally hate. The famous anime reviewer Bennett the Sage has stated that Masami Oobari is the worst director of all time. Oobari is BAD, he is REALLY bad, but he doesn't even compare to Satao. Even the second worst anime director: Iko Suzuki with his 1,2,3, punch combo to the testicles ( Sleeping with Hinako, DearS, and Dark Cat) read more

Sukitte Ii na yo. (Anime) add

Popular guy falls for unpopular girl. However unlike the norm, they waste no time establishing these two as a pair. It's refreshing in that the "whole does he/she like me" is over pretty much episode 2 which allows you to see the relationship grow. The bad thing about it is nothing ever really establishes why these two actually like each other and have a connection. Yamato's initial reasoning for being interested in Mei is that she roundhouse kicked him which makes her "interesting." Mei on the other hand is so new to having friends or anyone show any real interest in her, would fall for read more
