If you didn’t already know, there is a subset of the anime community called the Sakuga Community, whose principle value in anime lies solely within it’s production value. No matter how good or bad a show is, considering the hundreds of aspects that go into it’s production, this community will watch or drop a show on it’s quality of animation alone. While I never thought negatively of these people, I can say that I certainly never understood them. These are people who watched the entirety of Fate/Apocrypha for it’s sakuga, and watching a show THAT bad to completion just to see a few flashy read more

Ever wonder what the female version of Haikyuu!! would look like?

No, you say??? Alright, then…..carry on.

Its just, this anime bears some resem—….oh, you still don’t care. Okay. I’ll just leave you alone….

F—k you! I’m writing this review whether you like it or not.

As regular as the seasons change, another sports-genre anime has graced our computer screens for what seems like the umpteenth time, the flavor of the month being: badminton.

Sometimes, I wish sports anime gets more attention whether it’s swimming, basketball, soccer, tennis, or anything competitive in nature. Sure, there was Free! from these past few years but it clearly had an audience from the very beginning. Badminton is a one of those sports where it doesn’t get too much attention, at least not on an international level. Yet Hanebado has its own fame when it comes to selling its sports drama.

I would have originally watched this show just for the sheer competitiveness feeling. However, Hanebado persuaded me to invest into its character cast from the first few episodes. We meet a colorful group read more

I'm not a fan of the sports genre, I may be missing out on some treats, but I'm not interested in cliche games where the main character always wins. I came across Megalo Box and it proved me wrong, so I thought why not give this a try? It might impress me too... but it didn't.

The story is about a tournament in which challengers play against each other. I guess that's it, that's the most of the story. There's also the unnecessary drama which is also criticized by its fans, but if you dislike the drama, then what do you exactly like about the show? read more
