.hack//G.U. Trilogy
5 Movie 1 The overly sentimental AtolixHaseo cheese made me puke. Until the end of the first game's content, it was great... but after that, non-stop lazy deus ex machina plot alterations. Only the Bleach + Naruto theft on show during the Ovan fight salvaged it.

.hack//Roots
4 TV 26 Despite being a prequel to the G.U. games, IT WAS MADE *AFTER* THE GAMES. What this means is that there was no plot progression, very little character development, and lots of trademark Bee Train staring. If you aren't a BIG fan of the games, STAY AWAY!!!

7 TV 26 SWORD ART, eat ur heart out! The not-terrible, very first 'trapped in MMORPG' series. .hack//SIGN got me into anime. Many dislike it but I'm still fond of it, slow-paced or not. What can I say - I'm a JRPG lover. And it has one of the BEST OSTS *EVER*!

009 Re:Cyborg
4 Movie 1 My last Kamiyama film: he CAN NOT structure a cohesive narrative. Brains being 'God' is pretentious animeWTF. I laughed at Joe screaming at Gawd; riding a nuke, in space. Such outdated CG in a movie.. Cool slow-mo powa action + Kawai's music aside, awful.

11-nin Iru!
7 Movie 1 The premise of a ten-man crew finding themselves with an extra, and needing to survive with a rat on-board, is interesting. As is a genderless/trap character. However, there was barely enough time for most characters to say a few words! 10/10, if longer?

3x3 Eyes
5 OVA 4 Simplistic, yet 3x3's drag queen > Hong Kong > Japan > Hong Kong jumping = WTF!? Old School charm, Pai's CUTE baby voice & out of place horror OST impressed. The lack of plot (episodic GORE) / animation, Benares powa & abrupt end did not. Awful-dark DVDs.
Add - More
3x3 Eyes: Seima Densetsu
4 OVA 3 Plain-Generic replaced OVA1's old school art & Pai literally had a personality transplant; losing her charm. Ep1's PUPPET HORROR matched the OST + the lead was semi-useful via timeskip kungfu (ANIMATION!). But then Benares went topless & a snake cried!?

7 TV 12 NON-ANIME feel: Prohibition era, Ita-American (/authentic dub) GANGSTER vengeance. Surpassed expectations by not pussying out (opera assassination~), yet open end after a poignant road-trip disappointed. Rushed pinky-friend subplot. <3: 'PSYCHO PASS!?' OP

7 OVA 2 FILM NOIR grit, paired with fantastically directed action. Colour palette, jazz & high budget presentation drive home ze dark ambience. As sexy as UMETSU's art is, giganto dick SMUT WAS FORCED IN to get it made, and there was little characterisation time.

8 Movie 1 "I've selected you, Oka! You must overcome being a mere woman!" - What inspired Gunbuster; the blood, sweat & tears training and teamwork, as well as the three main characters all being the same. I crave more manly-girliness, so the TV series is next.

Afro Samurai
5 TV 5 A black samurai, hip-hop, SAMUEL JACKSON trying to be funny & gore = 10/10 American anime. Nonsensical sci-fi blended with JP period piece aesthetic. Fight choreography unimpressive, aside from 'BEAR HEAD'--music emotional resonance made me tingle.

Afro Samurai Pilot
- Special 1 Pity Koike only did this Madhouse pilot: fluidity of his animation & stylistic approach goes hand-in-hand with sword duel cool & liptastic women. A trailer showing brief action + teasing cast. Seems a more involved romance (/decapitation) was planned.

Afro Samurai: Resurrection
6 Movie 1 Kizaki did the storyboards this time: FIGHT CHOREOGRAPHY <3. Feudal Japan restraint replaced by sexy purple colour palette. Afro regretting added depth vs. retardation of unexplained headband logic + undefined mish-mash world. If Sio's tits jiggled, 7/10.

Ajimu: Kaigan Monogatari
3 ONA 4 Give a beautiful 2D girl - devoid of personality - a seashell, after some stalking to get the romance flowin', and not even an old flame reappearing can prevent (fake) love. Recycles overused themes, has poor/inconsistent art, and lacks a 'soul'.

6 TV 13 Sato's plane suicide was removed, FFS! Tower collapse IMMORTAL TERRORISM not as disturbingly badarse. Adapted 4.5vols:1-2min recaps every ep! Better as seamless movies. Loved the ARTSY manga tease ED + EPIC preview theme combo. OST + VA + CG = +1.

Ajin 2nd Season
7 TV 13 -1: 'happy end' law + sequel bait escape. WHY!? Bar a brief snippet of Izumi's backstory, anime original after ep4/5.. yet THRILLING + FAITHFUL to the manga plot threads. Satou remained a 'chaos is fun' loveable kunt of a villain, right to the last. <3

Ajin Part 1: Shoudou
7 Movie 1 FLOWS BETTER as film; w/o TV padding. sexy-smooth action (/Sato's death-revive trololol) & CG reproduced manga art better than expected. Epic OST + HORROR sound effects. Reached v3; ending at ideal psycho-? lead point. No "Are you an idiot?" close-up. :'(

Akagami no Shirayuki-hime
7 TV 12 Surprised me: PICTURESQUE UGH, to character-focused POLITICAL INTRIGUE. 'True king' Izana + Zen's trust = VG! Endearing heroine straightforward usefulness. Kisses + love ALREADY!? Slow yet fast shoujo. Charming 'magical' Oshima period piece OST & colours.

Akatsuki no Yona
8 TV 24 A SQUIRREL that tells characters "FUCK YOU". I never thought anime would make me giggle! The visuals are matched by its asian period piece OST. Uneventful, but Yona's revenge-growth = YES! Reminiscent of SUIKODEN = kinda awesome, overall.

Akira
5 Movie 1 Akira is only rated highly due to it showing the ignorant that animation doesn't end with Disney. The plot was a mess--a complex manga squashed into a movie. The facial art made the females look like men, and it provided very little enjoyment.

Aku no Hana
5 TV 13 HALF of EP13.. to open a door & a book! If not pandering to WALK FETISHISTS ('artsy') > recycling scenery shots. Need fast-forward to endure faceless hell... and yet, the rotoscoping, Nakamura's rants + the unsettling OST *DO* capture the manga's mood.

Aldnoah.Zero
5 TV 12 Emotionless Gary Stu vs MAGIC ROBOTS; in his training robot. Slaine is a more human lead. Worthless support cast. AZ seemed rushed yet too shallow to avoid cliffhangers x SHOCK VALUE. Post-torture made the Space Nazis less evil. NO MORE PRINCESS MOE, PLZ!

Alien 9

Amon: Devilman Mokushiroku
6 OVA 1 An entertaining bloodbath. Impossible to take seriously with colourful insect/beast-men for baddies. The lead's bitch getting her head removed, instead of being saved at the last, pleased me. No ending... which was probably for the best, going on Lady.

Angel
6 OVA 1 Old school perverted comedy goodness. A girl dreams of a hunky, heroic guy saving her, and holds affection for the guy she facesat as a tween. But, sadly for her, the guy from her memories is a sex-crazed freak. Lots of fun... but incomplete. NEW ANGEL!

Angel Cop
5 OVA 6 Angel Cop EMBODIES EVERYTHING 1980's anime: ultra violence, f-word dub, psychics, motorbikes, cyborgs, cyberpunk. Also: an intriguing 'left-wing terrorist' mess of a Jewish conspiracy plot AND ran out of small budget it had. Heroine is a sidelined bitch.

Angel Densetsu
7 OVA 2 So many laughs from the simple premise of a nice guy looking evil. Hilarious how EVERYONE MISREADS the lead as he unwittingly becomes thug #1. His random scream = freaky-good. Ended JUST AS the love interest appeared, which makes the manga a priority one.

Angel Heart
9 TV 50 Top ten; behind CH2. Low budget but UNDERRATED. Not classed as a sequel because Hojo didn't want hate over Kaori. The CH backstory shounen>seinen edits impressed. After the thrilling intro, it settles into CH's episodic format. Turns into City Hunter 5.

5 TV 12 FINAL DESTINATION owns dis. 1-4 = 'You know nothing; not telling' on repeat. Until 11-12, 'find the odd one out' (Misaki knew!). Then, a BLOODBATH as the stereotypes went psycho, with WTFLOL deaths + fat housewife chasing. Dumb. Eye-rolly misdirection.

Ao no 6-gou
5 OVA 4 I liked the idea of someone testing humanity by seeing if they would go for peace over war, and the idea of love between different species moved me. However, it ended badly; the 'seagirl' being paired up with the evil/rapist villain at random. Anime...

Ao no Exorcist
6 TV 25 ADAPTED TOO EARLY: 1-15 covered the intro; 16+ anime original hell. Power-levels got skewered (Yukio = Paladin) & plot threads got rushed to a Satan battle conclusion. The twin's mother (LOVE!) + blue night explanation made sense, at least... GREAT DUB!

Ao no Exorcist Movie
6 Movie 1 Disjointed. A cool ALL-ACTION TRAIN SEQUENCE intro. Then, a festival for movie prettiness + a child-demon that bonded with lead before being erased from memory. WHY make a SJ-esque movie when the TV series ended the anime's future? SEXY city architecture.

Ao no Exorcist: Kuro no Iede
6 Special 1 The cat mascot visits the cast & has internal breakdown reactions as they either don't give him food or poison him. Only the tsundere showing her dere side to the cat with her baby voice (dub) = GLOL. And maybe Yukio lecturing the cat over his litter box.

Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou-hen
7 TV 12 Sluggish monk-intrigue. BUT, Sawano's epic OST enhanced character-driven finale action. Intro'd a sinister-badarse villain--fight w/ Yukio was.. fiery. Completed arcs for many of cast; Rin can FINALLY use his flames! <3: A-1 ignoring S1 end shitfest.

Ao no Exorcist: Ura Ex
7 Special 10 Random, character-specific FUNI shorts. Yukio looking at MoeTits family picture and seeing the future was great. As was Mr.Insect Phobia getting hung up on by Rin as he attempted to move on insect from a doorway. Only a few failed to amuse.

7 TV 12 Loved the live-action novel info intros. If only an Osamu Dazai collection: NLH's (ep1-4) RELATABLE glance into DESPAIR. 5-6's comically misdirected fail began episodic hit-missing. Melos' 2ep 'show glimpses of novel; focus on irrelevant yaoi-lite' = NO!

Aoki Honoo
6 OVA 1 Ryuuichi is Light's equal in the sociopath league. He'll sleep with and discard as many women as it takes to reach the top; not giving a damn. Even his family are viewed as expendable. He displays the selfishness we all try to hide; the natural ugliness.

Arakawa Under the Bridge
8 TV 13 Should've ended with Ric in a mental institute; discovering he'd been dreaming about other patients. Tempted to 7/10 for the life-rambling intros & unfunny gag finishes. Maria's hamster-cheeked (MOE~!), dominatrix trash-talking (STAMP ON ME!!) swayed me.

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge
5 TV 13 S2's of gag comedies FAIL. S1 had cast intros + Ric's reactions, plus a driven narrative. S2? Same stale jokes, taken OTT to the point of yawns, and an amazoness inserted to add randomness. NO romance progression, or even a plot. Too little Maria sadism.

Arashi no Yoru ni
7 Movie 1 Talking animals for all. 'The Fox and the Hound' dealt with this subject better; with added maturity. Went in an interesting R&J-with-broship direction, before ENDING TOO HAPPILY. One guy licking his lips at his male friend's arse--NOT SUGGESTIVE, AT ALL!

Area 88
8 OVA 3 Far more streamlined and absorbing than the TV series; it was like watching a long movie, split over two DVDs. Loved the outdated art style and lack of CG. Sadly, like the TV series, it had no ending; there being no lovin' or showdown.

Area 88 (TV)
6 TV 12 Decent character development, an interesting (though straight-forward) story, and some solid entertainment. The OVA is probably superior due to it being more to the point; not needing to include filler episodes. Lacked a proper ending.

Arete Hime
6 Movie 1 Won me over via world-building as Arete escaped her tower to watch craftsmen work. Her suitors trying to win her over reminded me of 'Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors'. A repetitive mess once Boax takes her away. Pity: had non-anime artistic flair.

Arion
6 Movie 1 The messy KINGDOM HEARTS of GREEK MYTHOLOGY. What I don't get is why these 'Gods' rarely are much stronger than mortals. The 'SHE'S MY SISTER?... IDC!' love getting a shoujo end where they aren't related = /facepalm. Random sister Super Saiyan death-save.

Armitage III: Dual-Matrix
3 Movie 1 How to kill a cyberpunk series: remove all grit, replace hand-drawn GitSmex w/ gaudy as hell CG & have a non-JP composer ruin atmosphere via rock. The writing is shite, also: powa of the heart lets robots breed. Shitty Armitage x3 battle WOULD. NOT. END.

Armitage III: Poly-Matrix
6 Movie 1 A good cyperpunk flick that hits the right notes aesthetically, yet is overshadowed by GitS. Earth-Mars politics linking into a robot serial killer better than its cop BUDDY-WUV execution. Random end action. OVA>movie rushed in places. KIEFER SUTHERLAND~

Asatte no Houkou.
7 TV 12 A unique/touching story where age reversal between a little girl & apathetic woman leads to a new family. Hiro & Amino irked me: Hiro getting the best of both worlds after treating Shoko terribly & Amino's devotion to an implausibly tiny loli scaring me.

Ashita no Joe (Movie)
8 Movie 1 Yay for random Chinese (in English), official DVD releases! Most of the early bits highlighting how troubled Joe is were skipped, but it was still enthralling. The counter-countering end fight was epic, and there was a nice touch of unpredictability.

Asura
6 Movie 1 If this was a game, the CG would not impress. If the point of Asura was to illustrate that humans are animals, having a beastly brat eat people worked. BUT, I would've rather seen a smooth beast-to-human transition. A sudden shaved-head ending = NO!

Aura: Maryuuin Kouga Saigo no Tatakai
4 Movie 1 Starts as low budget 'Average HS Guy + Alien Girl' generica. Then, it turns into a BULLYING DRAMA over the heroine cosplaying as a witch and half the class being weirdo loyalists. ABSURD! Those 1000's of desks on top of the school... I hate anime.

Ayakashi: Japanese Classic Horror
7 TV 11 MIXED: The forbidden love intro arc was poor--outdated & cheap. Oiwa's vengeful tale was far better: believably despicable characters & FF Amano's art. Goblin Cat's ARTSY style and mystery-thriller edge made it the standout, with a twisted end twist.

6 Movie 1 Hosoda = FURRY! A lack of world building left it a simplistic kids film. *DID* IMPROVE: surprise tween>teen timeskip edging it slightly closer to my demographic.. then, 'powa of the heart-sword' end cheese. +1: Kumatetsu & Ren's funi father/son bickering.

Bakemonogatari
6 TV 15 SHAFT deceived viewers into thinking text, still-switching & empty CG = animation. Too much dialogue; most covering 'NO PANTIES!?' subjects. A stealth harem with supernatural dullness. Only Hitagi's tsundere-cum-yandere-cum-robot self made it worthwhile.

5 TV 24 "Let's create a series with no overarching plot, put in four girls that pander to various fetishes, have them dress-up in revealing clothing, and throw in a pointless male 'lead'... and robots." Easy to watch but stupid. No JoxMeg yuri ending = sad face.

Bakuretsu Tenshi: Infinity

Berserk
6 TV 12 Despite ep1-3 manga butchery, a surprisingly DECENT ADAPTATION of Berserk's Conviction arc (/2nd best). The gaudy CG improved; Casca & Guts' faces imitating the art well. Chaotic, HARD TO FOLLOW ACTION underwhelmed. HAI YO / Hirasawa + Skull Knight: <3.

Berserk: Ougon Jidai-hen I - Haou no Tamago
7 Movie 1 CG as fluid as 2D animation missing frames. GREAT when 2D, and key scenes were adapted superbly, but the inconsistent CG always ruined my fun. Only Zodd's monstrous self looked good in 3D. 70min INCLUDING credits; resulting in unnecessary cuts... why?
Add - More
Berserk: Ougon Jidai-hen II - Doldrey Kouryaku
7 Movie 1 Even more gaudy CG. The CascaxGuts tree bit got skipped--the emphasis on Doldrey wasted without Guts' pre-battle leaving talk. Guts vs. Griffith onwards was PERFECT; bettering the manga with its EROTIC sex as Griffith was busy thinking of Guts intensely.
Add - More
Berserk: Ougon Jidai-hen III - Kourin
8 Movie 1 2hrs of emotional build-up & breakdown, leading into the horror of the eclipse. Pacing excellence. Shame about the 1hr prequels! HOWEVER, Wylad got cut AGAIN + the same end as TV ver. WHY BOTHER!? The lack of music made me miss Hirasawa's HAUNTING OST...

Big Order
5 OVA 1 An oddly compelling, 'WHAT THE FUCK AM I WATCHING?' anime tease. Events out of order, with the lead being attacked by Yuno v2 one minute and then waking in bed with her, post-sex the next. MINDFUCKERY. Intriguing, in an incomprehensible kinda way. Maybe.

Binbougami ga!
8 TV 13 ALMOST 9. Its parody-filled humour & sassiness make it one of few truly funny anime. Tittyko's a school girl with HUGE boobs, but THEY'RE PART OF HER AS A PERSON! Her development into a less bitchy noisy bitch pleased me. Palencia's Tittyko = PERFECT DUB!

6 OVA 1 A couple are having sex: "I'm so hungry... I NEED TO EAT!" (girl) | "How's this... feel better?" *fondles boobs* (guy) -- Script only? This is a Kawajiri title! Maybe a bit too shallow/silly (tentacle in mouth, instead of killing?), but A+ entertainment.

Black Blood Brothers

7 Special 7 Had read the manga before watching. Revy is everyone's dream psychotic magical girl. The gender-reversal ep, where Rock ran into the arms of Revy (/tit bounce), was the best of the bunch. If Revy had a dick, she'd have had her way with Rock--I'D 10/10 IT!

Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail
7 OVA 5 BL's BEST arc; BL's WORST adaptation. Typical. Reorganising & new scenes hurt 1-2. Failed to better the B&W manga. The increased focus on Rock's descent + Revy's rape-memory were nice, but too much was cut. MH removing limbs & fingers = CRUEL!

Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage
8 TV 12 After S1's bitch-moe intros + R&R's "subtle romance" start, S2's loli assassins & 'bang-bang' arcs provided action-packed disappointment. Then came BL's 2nd best arc as R&R shared a characterisation heavy trip to Japan. Eda + Aion want R&R screwing.

Black Magic M-66
5 OVA 1 Clearly influenced by The Terminator. A killing machine goes out of control, and sets out on a mission to kill a young woman. (Because its anime, her wacky grandfather created and programmed it to kill her.) Intense at times, but far from thrill-a-minute.

Blade of the Immortal
7 TV 13 Surprised by the negativity. The characters were explored superbly and the art impressed. Revenge being dealt with maturely was a plus. The battles lacking 'oomph!' and it ending like a trailer shouldn't take away heavily from a VERY faithful adaptation.

Blade Runner: Black Out 2022
7 ONA 1 Betters Blade Runner 2049 zZz, in 15mins. Fitting that, having taken from Asian culture and Japan doing so in-turn, that we get this anime. Watanabe's lost none of his stylish action flair: Trixie's fight sequence flowed like water, as Spike would say.

Blame! Movie
7 Movie 1 Killey's silence, paired w/ head-only terminator waifu, reminded me of VHD: Bloodlust (+standalone ending). The ever-so-slightly OP gun sound is kewl. All town charas are meh but food desperation / labyrinth cybernetic survival just about held film tger.

6 TV 24 In the first half, the lack of a lead made it 9/10 level as two very human stories of self-destruction got told, alongside sexy CG. It all went wrong once the subplots ended, though - culminating in spirits giving a pep-talk, then fighting for the lead.

Blood Lad
6 TV 10 Vibrant stylisation & comedic but w/o plot: a pandering OTAKU 'VAMPIRE' goes in circles to revive MoeTits, for no reason. NO PLANNING! Shoddy world-building: demon world = Japan? Mildly entertaining fluff; NO end. Bell's sadistically SLUTTY TROLLING = +1.

Blood Lad: Wagahai wa Neko de wa Nai
6 OVA 1 The demon world now has a Wild West aesthetic--WHY? WHER BELL!? Lasso cat petting prevention humour, and SOME ACTUAL ANIMATION / decent action (Staz vs comical vamp hunters). But, as ever with BL: WAT POINT? No S2 adds to barebone 'plot' pointlessness...

Blood+
8 TV 50 /need to re-watch to rate accurately:: Going on my poor memory, Blood+ began as an Americanised, Hollywood-esque (Mark Mancina OST smex) anime. It improved massively as immortal twin plot took over... and then fell at the last hurdle due to budget issues.

Boku no Chikyuu wo Mamotte
8 OVA 6 A 3 hour manga teaser. If it had been completed, I'd more than likely love it. Great, character-focused storytelling. Reincarnation is fascinating to think about, and the way the past and present versions of the cast connected made it excellent to watch.

Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru
7 OVA 1 Despite the breaking of a taboo, beautiful. The forbidden love aspect made it powerful. I respected the lead for first trying to avoid future pain by moving away... only for his lovable sister to draw the truth out of him. Not trashy. No end = manga time?

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
6 TV 12 BICKERING BITCH-WUV = strong & amusing friendships. A+ until ep4. Then, farcical 1D characters such as a 10yo nun, shemale maid & virgin nympho appeared. A strong main love-tri trio (/masturbation), a non-wussy lead.. and bad anime failings. 6-7/10 fence.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Next
5 TV 12 Making Lab Coat Nympho into an anti-emo guru as the lead refused his GROWING HAREM didn't prevent a generic anime vibe. Rehashed S1 jokes, then ended with 'Let's make a movie!' crap. The maid's dick, a CLICHED arranged marriage & Yozora sodding off = S2.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai: Relay Shousetsu wa Ketsumatsu ga Hanpanai
7 OVA 1 Yozora bullying Sena NEVER GETS OLD. This time she had her fictionally raped as each character wrote part of a story. Everyone got time to do their thing by having Kodaka act out their 'swordsman of lulzdom' fantasies. Good choice for an all-in-one extra.

Boku, Otaryman.
7 OVA 1 The life of a salaryman, made interesting by showing the world from his colourful, 'otakuized' perspective. More western visually than most, and the retro gaming depictions of Yoshi's everyday life (him vs. a school girl; with a HP bar) were great.

Bokurano
6 TV 24 Kitoh's work always stands out because of his cruelty to children, and Bokurano is no exception. Boku is good but let down by 'clunky' CG and a poor (/filler) mafia arc that added little, as well as some censorship edits and an anime original end.

8 Movie 1 Pacifist leads in war stories need to deal with death and go emo, afterwards. It was funny how the lead got "Dan" killed by holding his gun ("Don't worry - IT WAS HIS FAULT!"). The 'leaving' bit made me sad. (HOW COULD YOU THINK OF LEAVING *THAT* QUEEN!?)

7 Movie 1 20 units going through the middle of an enemy pincer = tactical retardation. It was even topped by the others following after they were annihilated. Sigyn reminiscing about confessing, SigynxCleo and Girge's Godliness = 8/10, tactics aside.

6 Movie 1 Rygart went AWOL to save his bro. Liked that all of the villagers were dead, in the anime--set the mood. Too much got squashed in, and Girge's one-legged ownage session + the aftermath got cut. Rygart chasing after Girge mid-battle was a lazy anime edit.

City Hunter
8 TV 51 CH is the most watchable & fun episodic anime out there. The series' structure wasn't an issue because of the variation; Ryo saving ladies from killers, helping a nun in need--anything beauties wanted. Only Kaori's repetitive anti-sex hammer let it down.

City Hunter '91
7 TV 13 Like S3, had more self-contained singles, but done better. Little came across as recycled. The eps dealing with Umi's life at Cat's Eye and Kaori having a date with Ryo impressed the most. Sadly, it ended without ANY closure--not even a double ep finish.
Add - More
City Hunter 2
9 TV 63 Superior to S1. Not only do Ryo & Kaori share many tender moments / kiss, even the tsundere known as Umi got himself a 'partner'. Nearly all of the arcs were two-parters in S2, and the 61-63 end arc FINALLY revealed all about Ryo's past.

City Hunter 3
7 TV 13 Between S1 & S2, CH switched from single to double ep stories. S3 had more singles; meaning less depth. However, the last four (two arcs) eps involved R&J drama & a vengeful woman finish. Short & not a 'best of' collection, but more of CH is never bad.

City Hunter: Ai to Shukumei no Magnum
6 Movie 1 The parallel between Ryo & Kaori's love and the parents of Nina was nice. But, like with Secret Service, the story was stretched to fit; adding only filler. Another worthwhile addition, but knowing Ryo will always prevail makes it less than exciting...

City Hunter: Bay City Wars
6 Movie 1 When teamed up as a result of a Saeko's boobs + chasing tail combo, Umi & Ryo are hard to beat. Not even a supercomputer could stop them! There wasn't anything remarkable enough for its OVA treatment, but its length made it better paced than the movies.

City Hunter: Goodbye My Sweetheart
5 Special 1 Too little of what makes CH tick. Without Ryo sexually assaulting women 24/7 & getting hammered, where's the fun? A rich nerd joining the foreign legion and coming back as an assassin, happy to hurt the only person he cares about for lulz = unconvincing.

City Hunter: Hyakuman Dollar no Inbou
6 OVA 1 Nothing included explained its OVA separation. Ryo's attempts at 'seducing' the blonde American, only to be thwarted by her mini-hammer, was pervy-good. It was a bit too melodramatic and predictable after that, but it remained at average mini-arc level.

City Hunter: The Secret Service

Death Parade
7 TV 12 Tried to add variation to the one-shot's 'evil-good-guy' death game. ILL-DEFINED setting + ANIME support cast. BUT, 8-9's revenge tragedy redeemed it. Then, iceskating SILENT STORY excellence. BITTERSWEET end impressed; 'no emotions; can't judge' did not.

Denpa-teki na Kanojo
7 OVA 2 Shame it ended incomplete - now we'll never know if the lead was a king in his previous life. The first episode provided enough Higurashi, psycho-girls-with-bats thrills to be worthy of a 9/10 score. The second episode let it down a little.

Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu
6 TV 24 Jumbled srs-funi pacing + TERRIBAD end. The discrimination made lazy-indifference endearing & a multifaceted 'war to end wars' promised much. BUT, it went on an ABSURD 'Jekyll&Hyde king' tangent. NO END; NO INFO! Lelouch's screaming>crazy laughter = YES!

Devil May Cry
6 TV 12 Devil May Get PUSSY WHIPPED. Laid-back Dante reminded me of CB's Spike: the things he hated (women, kids & dogs) being around him. KAWAJIRI's character designer + dark 'n funny (ep4-5 <3) episodicness. Shame about pisstake end + lack of action/animation.

Devilman Lady
7 TV 26 An anime with an adult female lead and a NEAR LESBIAN relationship between a woman and a school girl. Yay? Lots of dark, moody 'monster of the week' episodic fun... AND some 'lesbian' raping. Shame about the rubbish 'WTF?' ending, mind.

Devilman: Crybaby
8 ONA 10 RAW, VISCERAL BRUTALITY. Ep9-10: dark depths of story surprised--Berserk stole more than monsters! Stylised visuals + EMOTIONALLY RESONANT OST made it an experience. -1's: Lacked cohesion (Kukun, brat) & cheapo 'yellow blood' action. Miki: genuine & sexy~

Devilman: Tanjou-hen
7 OVA 1 Combines GHIBLI CHARA DESIGN & colouring with Go Nagai's work... and demonic murder with the lulziest "WHY GAAAAAAWD" x3 / "puk you!" dub known to anime-kind. High budget 'best of the manga' that changes the rest in chaotically entertaining fashion.

Devilman: Yochou Sirene-hen
6 OVA 1 Kaim needs better timing to declare bird woman love. Aside from the "I WISH HE'D SOAP MY TITS" dub re-write & Miki's TITSS (/fap), not as good as OVA #1. More faithful, less purty and with less dub lulz. Endless end fight reminded me of wrestling!

Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei

Druaga no Tou: The Aegis of Uruk
6 TV 12 Failed to live up to ep1's PARODY GOLD lulzfest (Dark Knight's power-up death = +1). Half-arsed when not poking fun. The tower's layout? WTF is with x2 spiritual ladies? Plot?... No, just a funny gender-switching/furry ep & a joystick-using 1984 game nod.

Druaga no Tou: The Aegis of Uruk - Jil no Bouken
6 Special 1 'Tis somewhat amusing to listen to Jil mumbling away the lines from his JRPG/medieval fantasy parody dream... as the cast desperately battle to survive. The lines being in-sync with ep1's time frame helped with the 'ep1 flipside' angle Gonzo went for.

Druaga no Tou: The Sword of Uruk

El Hazard 2: The Magnificent World
4 OVA 4 Looks and plays out as if AIC hired a new team to create it on the cheap. The recurring marriage joke becomes a vital plot point, and the 'demon/weapon of mass destruction' stuff from the prequel gets repeated, poorly. Adds nothing and reeks of cash-in.

El Hazard: The Alternative World
5 TV 13 It's a sign of badness when a series focuses on a jumbled mess that plays out in industrialized Russia, rather than El Hazard... and then ends without explanations by going, "It was all a dream! HOT SPRING TIME!!" Only fat + reverse-raped Jinnai saved it.

El Hazard: The Magnificent World
8 OVA 7 For those with dreams of adventure set in fantastical worlds, a must-see. As basic as the characters/plot are, the raunchy harem, cross-dressing lead, army of bugs commanded by a cackling prat and teacher with alcohol woes make it inconsequential.

El Hazard: The Wanderers
7 TV 26 The cheesiness of MakotoxRune aside, an excellent re-working of AIC's classic. All three priestesses had back-stories added, and the additional Jinnai hilarity with the all-new, ditzy Ifurita made up for any and every flaw. Ifurita the ditz = auto-love.

8 TV 12 Junpei: "Food is better than sex!" - Celcia: "I totally agree. I'm sure the girl you had sex with feels EXACTLY the same way..." | TWHE has the most dirty dub re-writes ever. +1 for lifeless JP scripts getting replaced with witty banter + swearing!

Elf wo Karu Mono-tachi II
5 TV 12 Referring to Britney Spears' virginity as "tightly guarded" must be bad, 'cause the dub of TWHE2 remained faithful to the JP script; meaning no sex jokes or wit. More of the same, just less imaginative, aimless, and duller. Too much mid-series randomness.

6 TV 26 Suspension of disbelief required: whenever there's even a hint of drama, there's always an easy, happy solution. But it succeeds as a sausage-less, episodic anime where colorful girls use covert ops to save the day. Looks and plays out a bit like My-HiME.

Gokusen
6 TV 13 A must watch for GTO fans. Onizuka is replaced by a tough-as-nails woman, but the stories are very similar. It'd have a higher rating if more of the lengthy manga (which I MUST read!) had been covered.

6 TV 24 Masterplan fail: to HOPE a 15yo loli (via dancer rape) can tell Mr. Evil what to do. UNNECESSARY 'captive princess' drama. Juvenile bitchxdoormat fun + 'HOW U KNO!?' thrills... and 'refer to humans as wolves' dumb. Ninja mom HAD TO wait until the end...

Great Teacher Onizuka
7 TV 43 My rating doesn't tell the whole story. At one point, during a sequence of TERRIBLE FILLERS, I 6/10'd it. What saved it from my wrath was a faithful adaptation of the school trip arc; the second best part of the manga. Awful 'ending'.

Green Legend Ran
6 OVA 3 An exciting story of rescuing a 'loved' one and revenge, with a post-apocalyptic setting. If it had been a TV series, it had everything required to be a 10/10. Too much was squashed into the OVA, resulting in shallow bonds and a nonsensical last episode.

Grenadier: Hohoemi no Senshi
6 TV 12 Trigun with shallower characters + boobs. Killing is wrong, and a boob-huggle is what people need - NOT POWER! The cleavage ammo trick is... unique. An easy, good-looking watch. The bad? It's beyond unrealistic, idealistic to the extreme and very dumb.

Grey: Digital Target
6 Movie 1 Grey: "Nova, open your tail! I'm coming in hard!" Nova: "Kinky!" Simplistic shounen fun: soldiers fight for credits, and an evil A.I. controls all. Gotta love Nova going from antagonistic to appearing next to Grey naked, then sexing him, within minutes.

Guilty Crown
4 TV 22 Worst written anime; hentai aside. Goes from a CG rip-off to school survival lulz, with inexplicable otherwordly eyeball war (vs evil sister) in-between. Characterisation all over the place (emo > tyrannical). Wheelchair tsundere moe prevented dropping.

Gun Frontier
7 TV 13 Set in a barren wasteland, where nobody bats an eyelid over death, and sex is trivial, GF's story plays out. Men kill to survive, while women use their wiles to deceive. There's no romance here: only the bond three share as they traverse the Wild West.

Gungrave
9 TV 26 Michael Corleone, eat your heart out: Harry MacDowell is where it's at. There isn't much competition but Gungrave is by far the best anime crime drama. If the whole series had been as good as the 2-16 flashback arc, it'd be an easy 10/10.

8 OVA 2 Living directly underneath the arsehole of the world can never be pleasant. The insignificant, poor unfortunates, dreaming of a paradise up above; bounty hunters making a living by hunting scum; a cyborg girl with a pure heart -- I MUST read the manga!

Gunslinger Girl
8 TV 13 Something involving little girls and big guns is only going to be one of two things: underage porn or a very depressing story. One of the better character-focused dramas in known existence. Maybe.

Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Hakairoku-hen
8 TV 26 Kaiji's irresistible when the simplest of games get made complex through psychological duels. The manly narration + OTT metaphors make it ADDICTIVE. But S2 spent 70%+ on a war against a pachinko machine. Only on S1's level when the dice rolled.

Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor
9 TV 26 If men with big noses have big everything else, I'm envious of Kaiji. Non-stop, edge of your seat thrills. Every episode ended on a cliffhanger, and the psychological warfare made simple card games exciting. Has a surprising but disappointing ending.

Gyo
5 OVA 1 When a shark smashes through a window & leg-things stick tubes up arses for fuel, it's hard to be horrified. The manga got butchered into lulz. Amusing--especially the part where the heroine sat crying after repeatedly getting bitch-pushed away.

Hadashi no Gen
9 Movie 1 Very much like GotF... actually, that should be the other way around. Well, whatever! The point is, it'll make you cry because you witness children being exposed to the horrors of war. The nuclear explosion scene is one of the most disturbing things ever.

Hadashi no Gen 2
6 Movie 1 Shows how Japan was after the bombing. Lacks the powerful imagery and meaning of the first film, and struck me as being something of a cash-in. Not bad, but a bit on the pointless side.

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar
8 TV 12 NEITHER GRIM NOR GAR!? Overused premise w/ a UNIQUE 'growth as part of group' approach. Gradual can-barely-kill pacing & human relatability make downtime captivating. Disturbing (/physics) action + grief. <3: Beautiful watercolour BGs & YUME'S ARSE!

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar: Furoagari no Kabe ni Kaketa Seishun - One More Centimeter

8 TV 75 I own all but 1/15 volumes on DVD, and I'm glad I collected it. I know nothing about and care not for boxing, but that didn't stop me getting into the varied boxing matches and cheering the lead on. It has to be up there with the best sporty anime!

Hakaima Sadamitsu
5 TV 10 A wild west OP, delinquents, aliens, C-3PO probabilities, love & panties. After ep4's "I see boobies..." line, there's a disconcerting change from black comedy to "IT'S WRONG TO KILL ALIENS!", and the past being altered without love remaining = bad.

Hal
4 Movie 1 A Mary Sue + Hal. Hal sells 'buttons' for money = EDGY. Characterisation! The setting is as ill-defined as the 'romance'. Using a robot to ease grief by looking like the dead = WTF. The 'twist' end = PREDICTABLE! WTF IS WITH THE RUBIKS CUBES!?

Hana to Alice: Satsujin Jiken
6 Movie 1 More artsy-fun rotoscope thing than movie. Starts as a farcical murda mystery, before transitioning fully to silly girl fwiendship. Stumbles between events (spent ages old man stalking ffs!), then ends abruptly. For once, animegirls are friends>lesbians~

Hand Maid May
5 TV 10 Another one of THOSE anime where a one-dimensional, four-eyed geekoid inexplicably gains a harem full of boobs without brains. Why does he find himself living with a harem consisting of 'robots' with USB ports for vaginas, from the future? No clue.

Hand Maid May: Akiramemasen
5 Special 1 The point of this final episode was lost on me when no attempt was made at explaining the incomprehensible dumbness of the story, or pairing up the leads. But x5 mini-May's hanging from their vagina-ports did amuse me, somewhat. A fittingly daft finale.

Happy Birthday: Inochi Kagayaku Toki
7 Movie 1 Depicts human cruelty. Bullying & an unloving mother team-up for HEAVY yet believable drama. DOES get laid on thick though, with a 'bad upbringing = NASTY!' aspect for a happy end. The disabled girl's awkward-stiff limbs + innocent-happy face = HAUNTING!

Harmonie
8 Movie 1 Struck a chord with me. The way the social classes were depicted divided at school (otaku / cool kids) and how that wall was broken by music / a dream moved me. I'd like an extended version but there's little else to add and it'd be ruined. NICE ART!

Harmony
7 Movie 1 VERY TALKY: far from ideal presented as a film, yet exploration of what it is to be human via lesbian school girl suicide (in a sci-fi fake utopia) intrigued. <3: Miach's seductively twisted SENSUAL FLASHBACKS. Friend/kindred spirit convo made me think.

Hashire Melos (Movie)
8 Movie 1 TRUST: Putting your life as collateral so a to-be-executed guy can go to his sister's wedding. In this Roman PERIOD PIECE, a selfless 'criminal' isn't ideal politically. 'I LOVE BOTH, SUDDENLY' Lysa needed time. Start-at-end intro killed thriller tension.

Hataraki Man
7 TV 11 Follows the same path as other 'OL' series: a woman focuses 100% on work, gets stressed, and loses her boyfriend. It's mostly lighthearted, in spite of it portraying work-related struggles. Why spend time on a relationship that ends predictably badly?...

Hello Harinezumi: Satsui no Ryoubun
6 OVA 1 Murder mysteries without twists don't satisfy. A father gradually losing his sanity after he's forced to make a horrible decision? That's fine. But I like more motivation for a killer than some guy daring him to shoot; resulting in a small killing spree.

3 Movie 1 Biblical x metaphysical HORSESHIT. Deceives with dead-girl-volleyball, gothic-cartoony pacing before Adam, Eve, Abel & Cain join Elvis as it goes all BAD anime. Ends with thought bubbles battling as wishes come true (if you believe). Why, Madhouse?...

5 Special 3 Romi Paku trying to sound 'ARD as boy Walter. The Captain fight was ok, as was Alucard coming out of his coffin. A prequel w/ The Major as a proper Nazi has potential.. just not in 3x unfinished shorts that don't explain the WHY of Evil Walt & Tranny Alu.

5 OVA 2 Oku = HUGE boobs. The first ep, about a pitiful teacher trying to get it on with a student, was saved by the war for Chizuru's body. The next was cute; showing how much Chizuru wanted some lesbo loli action, but was let down by the lack of girl-on-girl.

Hi no Tori: Uchuu-hen
7 OVA 1 Similar to They Were 11: something goes wrong in space and the numbers don't add up. Its 'corrupted by love' story gets told via flashbacks during helpless space drifting--gripping! Got shitty once 'leg plants' were introduced. Much bird rage-killing.

7 OVA 1 Better than the non-Kawajiri prequel. An assassin falls for his target's sister, and she tackle-kisses him. It all goes tragically wrong, after that. If not for the 'buried alive flute punishment' ending it on an unhappy and unsatisfying note, great.
