~Review for both episodes 1 and 2~
I try to be careful with over
hyping a film, or anything that makes me set high expectation for. But for code geass it is exceptional.
- Story
It is an alternative story that set in europe union after black Rebellion that occur in R1. The story follow Hyuuga Akito an Eleven (japanese) boy doing his job as european soldier.
Unlike original Geass series which is heavily focused on Strategy and Psychological. This movie is more focuses on action battle between knightmares.
- Art
The animation, the set designs
and the special effects is undoubted.
Sunrise and the fact that this movie is made in 2013 read more

Naruto (Anime) add
literaturenerd
Welcome to the anime world's absolute epitome of average. How is the action?...it's ok. How are characters? There are some cool ones, like Itachi and Gaara, but they don't get enough screen time and there are lots of lame characters with far, far too much screen time. How is the main character? cliche' and average as hell! How is the art quality? Its average. How is the writing quality? You already know the answer. Why then did I give it a 4 out of 10 and not a 5? The answer is actually quite simple: filler. Naruto has some of the most boring, tedious filler read more

Bad compared to the original series. I guess it is the writer's fault. The story contains tons of cliché and illogical moments.

Gintama (Anime) add
DrakeAF
I'm going to sum up all the different Gintama show's meaning Gintama, Gintama', and Gintama': Echousen in the review.

Overall story: 10

Story: Gintama is set in the late Edo period Japan, with a Sci-fi twist to it. , humanity is attacked by aliens called "Amanto". The samurai of Japan join the battle against the aliens, but when the Shogun realizes the power of aliens, he betrays the samurai and surrenders to the aliens.

Hunter x Hunter, a series renowned for its unique and intelligent battles, is one of the best lengthy shounen/action series I've ever seen. However, this movie throws all of that out of the window of an extraordinarily tall tower and prefers to use more senseless, "beat-em-up with the power of friendship" tactics.

The story is pretty basic: A small group of refugees band together with a powerful rival of the Hunter Association in order to get revenge on them. The story takes place at Heaven's Arena, the tower where Gon and Killua fought while learning the basics of Nen. It brings back some characters from previous read more

Love Hina (Anime) add
GoombaJoe
I watched this anime a long time ago, and after rewatching it now, I realize that it is a simple to watch anime for anyone. I'd say that it's a great starter anime for people used to typical cartoons in America, a good sub plot in each episode with an overall story being developed throughout the show. It's not as in-depth as many animes today, but still a solid one to watch for casual/relaxing purposes.

Toradora! (Anime) add
HybridMedia
*sigh*

You know, I’m starting to lose all hope when it comes to romance / slice of life anime as they tend to either go in a certain way: they try to be outrageously funny and/or dramatic but it ends up being only one or the other and I’m left cold feeling that have doing nothing remarkable or distinctive to make me care about the characters, what they go through and the story as a whole and if you wondered what title made me like this, let’s say that I’m all out of LOVE for this genre. But, then, there’s Toradora and I have heard mixed read more

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance (Anime) add
TheBlckJoker
You know i never thought this would get an anime but it did.So going onto the review of the first 3 episodes i can say well done but also not so, because as a reader of the novels(not manga) the story should get better along the way and the way the story has been going there are not that many cuts as I thought there would be.

Story: 8/10 So for the first 3 episodes i say the story is going extremely well telling us the point of why the MC is at an all girls academy, what Ren Ashbell has to do with him. read more

Kuroshitsuji II (Anime) add
HybridMedia
We return to the world of Black Butler, to see what adventures may be continue among Sebastian and Ciel and…..wait, what? Season 2 isn’t just about them? They have some new characters? Alois Trancy and Claude Faustus?

OK. They may not seem so bad. A good change of characters could help the show.

*after watching a few episodes*

Or not.

In late-nineteenth century England, one year and three months after the dramatic conclusion of the original series, Kuroshitsuji II introduces a new butler and young master. The sadistic yet cheerful Alois Trancy has faced some harsh times. He was kidnapped as a baby, and was forced to work in read more

Ishida to Asakura Special (Anime) add
vigorousjammer
There really isn't much to this special at all. In fact, it's really just the same exact copy & paste intro that each episode on the main series had, just with some different dialogue. The thing is, there's no episode after the intro, it just ends and says "thanks for watching"
I guess this is fine, but taken at face value, this special is not very special at all, it's really just a little bonus tacked on to a somewhat sub-par show. It's probably the weakest part of the whole thing, to be honest.

Ishida to Asakura (Anime) add
vigorousjammer
Ishida to Asakura consists of twelve 2-minute episodes that have a bunch of weird, random stuff that seems designed to make you say "what the hell am I watching right now?"

The show seems completely self-aware of this, and even tends to parody a lot of generic, shitty anime tropes. However, it doesn't really parody hard enough, and it's never clear whether they're making fun of something, or if it's just in there to be weird. Thus, many of the aspects they parody still end up feeling tired and overdone.
Also, their characters feel empty and really bland, but I think part of that might be by read more

School Days (Anime) add
ventimator
Story:

On the surface, School Days appears to exist simply so it can torture fans of the harem genre. But in actuality, it is a deconstruction/satire with morals (“be faithful to your significant other” “don’t treat Women like objects”). However, what lies underneath is not the only thing that matters. The journey from event to event moves at a grueling pace, padded with dialogue, fan service (which operates against the “don’t treat Women like objects” moral), and gags that fall flat. The events themselves are melodramatic, and supported by illogical actions and cruelty. We are given no prior indication that the characters are capable of what read more

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance (Anime) add
pierceisgod
Just a nice little side show to watch during the summer, it is your classical ecchi show with very little plot. Basically if you mix a little bit of zero no tsukaima, date a live, and highschool dxd than that's what this show is about. Since its only 12 episodes I dont see the show developing too much so if your just looking for something of this genre than its probably a good watch, however if you do not like ecchi that you should probably stay away from this.

Story 6/10 - Not much going on or that will occur

Art 7/10- Nothing Spectacular

Sound 6/-10 Pretty Ordinary read more

Kotoura-san (Anime) add
Harmless1224
First off,
The theme song was not really appealing to me in the slightest.
Also although I watched the entire thing through, I found it to be at times predicatable and very cliche. Like they have the going to the summer house, going to the sea, girl finds friends, falls in love, there being a christmas and yadayadayada.

The characters were alright, I did find Manabe a bit annoying but aside from that , the characters were spot on.

Overall, if you have nothing better to watch you should watch this. I admit at the last episode I struggled to keep in my tears but it isn't an anime read more

Zetsuen no Tempest (Anime) add
diamondketo
This was a comment sent to the Director Masahiro Ando during an event. It is a list of why I think Zetsuen no Tempest was a masterpiece.

I love Zetsuen no Tempest, I rank it #1 of my favorite Overall Anime list. This is because I really enjoyed this anime within these reasons.
#1) The background story of a dead girlfriend made it a great romance emotional story.
#2) The incorporation of Shakespeare's Tempest and Hamlet gives the anime a different connotation that respected old values unlike other anime.
#3) This anime did not focus on the ecchi but really took the time to develop a read more

Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki (Anime) add
Chibirosie471
Superb just amazing...a real cry baby, emotional story.

The story line is so simple to follow and can be realistic (Minus the wolf man part) but the story deals with the hardships of being a single parent and dealing with adolescences. And children finding their own pathways in life and parents learning to let them grow. The wolf part just made it more fantasy like and more adorable.

The art work is very soft and pastel like. The animation in it gives you a slice of life feel. Which is very soft, pastel colors, great scenery. The sound was great. I watched it in english read more

School Days (Anime) add
vince1996
School days a show about a sex addict and his harem who have less personality then a piece of cardboard. It also gave rise to the famous boat scene.
Actual Score: 5.4

Story: 8
The story of school days a first seems a typical romance with a love triangle but takes a big turn towards the psychological experiences of teenage love life which is a good plot and what kept me going through the whole series, there are no plot holes which another good point about the series and it ends with no cliff-hanger so this is a good one-stop series without having worry about sequels.

Art: 7
The art read more

Neon Genesis Evangelion (Anime) add
Tobukaze
Neon Genesis Evangelion, a show that has polarized audiences for almost 20 years. This show is not for everyone. Having said that, should everyone watch it? Absolutely.

NGE has endured through the years, retaining its reputation as an anime classic, despite its highly controversial artistic choices. Why? Because it's different. Evangelion took conventional aspects of the mecha genre and tore them to pieces. People didn't know what to make of it in 1996 and now, in 2014, people still don't know what to make of it.

The show begins normally enough, with the now-iconic 14-year-old Shinji Ikari being called on by his estranged father to pilot a read more

Clannad (Anime) add
jdbe
The definition of moe has been argued over for many years. Is it a pure form of feelings toward a female character without it being sexual? Is it borderline loli with a dash of kawaii? Well look no further than Clannad, the definition of moe in anime form.

Clannad follows the story of Tomoya Okazaki life at school, in which he meets and gets to know Furukawa Nagisa. He eventually meets many other girls similar to Nagisa, in which he finds out their backstorys and their dreams for the future, as well as trying to confront the girls problems, and his own.

For the story, Clannad contains read more

Nichijou (Anime) add
Kolnikov
Nichijou stayed in my Plan to Watch list for quite a long time. Somehow, every time I looked to the cover of it, I was convinced that it was just another ordinary anime praised by MAL community. Take all this prejudice and combine it with the name ''My Ordinary Life'', and you will have a big snowball of prejudgments. However, I came to you announce, happily, that I was absolutely wrong about this being just a regular anime.

Anyway, let's get to what really matters: Nichijou presents a story that appears to be quite simple and ordinary. Three friends enjoying their respective school lives, with a read more
