Shiki (Anime) add (All reviews)
In the modern world, society is obsessed with vampires. Vampires have enough mysteriousness and data on them that various writers and directors throughout all mediums of media love creating stories about them. However vampires tend to get a bad rep through works such as twilight and the anime series Diabolik Lovers. These types of stories tend to paint vampires in the light of being bishounens or physically appealing to certain people so that they would be more appropriate for romance stories. However Shiki is different. There are no frills no punches pulled and it's a refreshingly dark take on said genre.

Shiki is a read more

To me when watching anime or anything else for that matter, originality is very important to me. Unless something is well executed unoriginal shows really tend to put a damper on my viewing experience. On another note I am happy to say Jojo's Bizarre adventure doesn't disappoint in this category. As it is one of the most original and most fun anime series I have ever seen.

Amnesia is one of the most commonly used tropes in all of media throughout any medium of entertainment. And the mass use of amnesia has caused it to become very bland for many veteran media consumers. However when this trope is used properly it can work wonders for an anime. The dusk maiden of amnesia is an example of an anime that does well for what it is but has some significant problems at the same time.

The dusk maiden of amnesia is a 2012 anime series that's based off a manga of the same thing. It follows a group of students and a ghost read more

When it comes to tv it's a fact of life, making second seasons to already great shows are difficult. Trying to transfer that quality into a brand new sequel and season and trying to continue the series isn't that easy. This is further exemplified in the second season of Gate where I can safely say it's great. However I still felt something was just missing that was present in the first season.

The main premise of the second season of gate is quite similar to the first. It chronicles the political relationship between Japan and the world in the other side of the gate. This read more

Zombies have been a staple in all sorts of media throughout the west. When it comes to anime zombies aren't exactly Unheard of but still are fairly prevalent within the medium. An example of this would be High School of the dead or the manga I am a hero. However today I am talking about an anime that comes from a studio that has produced a famous anime you've probably heard of, and that anime is attack on Titan.

Ae seen in anime shorts such as The house of small cubes and furiko, it does not take a long time to tell an amazing story. However it continues to amaze me how well narratives are presented in a short time frame. Dareka no Manazashi is yet another example of this concept.

Makoto Shinkai is the director of this short and he also directed one of my favorite romance stories of all time in The Garden of words. He also directed the film five centimeters per second which is also critically acclaimed. And you can definitely tell just by looking at it that it is by read more

Mayoiga (Anime) add (All reviews)
Many people within the anime community complain about the degrading quality of modern anime works. Though I always try to view anime in a positive light, I can't deny that Mayoiga is a great example of this. I mean it was so mediocre and pretentious and it just fell into an eternal abyss of dissapointment.

The lost village is the type of show that tries several ideas and concepts but fails miserably at several of these endeavors. It desperately attempts to incorporate deep themes but can hardly get down dynamic characterization and development, not to mention a completely muddled narrative.

In the world of sports being the underdog can sometimes not be a bad thing. Because people do not expect that much of you, you can easily surprise them by putting in a very good performance. However this is not the case for many years for East Tokyo United football club. That is until the new young manager tatsumi takeshi begins his ETU managing career and they now look to regain their honor.

Nostalgia can be a very powerful thing when consuming any form of media. Everyone more often than not loves to reminisce about when they were young and this is usually connected to an aspect of their childhood whether it be a game, movie, or tv program. Nostalgia more often than not implements A positive bias in us. This is definitely the case with this movie but I can't really give it a good score due to all of its problems.

The concept of survival has been heavily explored in nearly every form of media imaginable. A product of this concept are games that pit people against each other such as the hunger games and Battle Royale. However Ousama Game is a bit different. Despite Ousama Game having great promise, it clearly spiraled into a disappointing mess to be perfectly honest with you.

The Story of Osama game is easily the best part. It exentuates intrigue in the reader and you definitely want to know more. The author also does a great job of actually telling the story and building up great suspense. This is read more
