In the writing of this review, I noticed one big problem, spoilers. As you can probably guess from my rating of this show there is a whole lot going on here and there is so much more of it than what one would expect at first glance. The issue is, it’s hard to convey all of that without going into what happens later on. And so what I can do is tell you what I think this show does well, while sometimes the why will be somewhat obscured, I will do my best to convey what I can. The main thing that you should know read more

Urahara is a highly entertaining joyride rich in craze and color. However, its inexperienced staff fails to blend its creative concepts in a cohesive fashion.

Set in Harajuku, the show does a great job at adopting the district’s zany culture.

The anime starts off with an episodic format where the PARK girls encounter Scoopers and then proceed to take them out by using the amatsumara – items that are the physical embodiment of imagination. In read more

Creativity is a weird thing, but why do we even make art? Is it simply the strive to be original and make something that doesn't exist? Is it a showcase of our talents? Is it something we do to make others happy? Maybe it's just a way of expressing ourselves. But one thing many artists have in common is their emotional connection to their work; the anxiety and self-doubt that comes when that thing you made didn't come as good as you hoped or when you spend a long time on something only for nobody to notice it, but also the sense of accomplishment read more
