Warning! The whole review might be a lie. It also contains spoilers, not that it's worth mentioning anyway.


First of all, I have to thank mr. Yamazaki Mari (the original creator) for deciding to use a great cover of Lord Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald's theme as an opening song (a.k.a. Rossini's William Tell Overture opera). Original song music video link below:

Due to my Greek blood, combined with my impatience to watch the Tokyo 2020 opening ceremony, this show seemed irresistible for me. It was the real deal - it screamed "time for a sarcastic review vol 2".

The story is amazing - it's about 420 BC born statueman read more

Olympia Kyklos is probably the best contender for dark horse of the Spring 2020 season, and maybe even all of 2020. It was a show that was heavily overshadowed by several household and hyped up titles, and as well as its short length and unique nature. This show is quite unique as it experiments with several types of animation and techniques that you don’t often see in TV, such as Claymation and use of fabric materials, so for one to enjoy a show such as this one, it requires a certain taste and a little bit of open-mindedness.

The show follows the timid and cowardly, yet read more

Due to the pandemic, the biggest sporting event in the world was postponed: the Olympics. The planet rightly needs time to restructure itself, in addition to prioritizing everyone's health. Olympia Kyklos was the anime that came with a unique cultural objective, showing us historical and comic references of the formation of this very memorable date every four years. We will analyze then, one of the most important anime of this year.

This review contains some small spoilers.

Olympia Kyklos is a set of short stories, by Demetrios, an illustrator and at the same time creator of events, whose "mandatory work" is to promote sports and the Olympics read more

Be warned - This review is the epitome of subjective. I'm purely rating this based off my personal enjoyment of this series.

So, I've been meaning to read the manga for a while, never got around to it. In late september my friend and I, on our weekly anime-watching-session, gave in to our curiosity, because the preview picture of this anime has been intriguing us for weeks at that point. So we decided to just try one episode, to see what exactly this anime was, and were surprised it was five minutes long. And then, without realising it, we ended up watching all sixteen? seventeen? episodes read more
