Boku-H is a perfect example of what ecchi harem shows are about, and in this review, I am here to explain why our standards of appreciation must be adjusted to account for what actually makes these types of shows enjoyable.

By the normal standards of grading entertainment, we usually define quality entertainment as intelligent in some way. Intelligent design for entertainment usually is produced through a well-thought out story and an interesting cast that has thought provoking development. Naturally, it is very easy to dismiss Boku-H as being a mediocre show when it does in fact have an uninspired story that feels rushed and read more

Comedy is considered a tricky subject to grade, given humor can often be very subjective to individual experience and familiarity with the context in which humor is involved. Accessibility to humor is a hugely important issue when making a comedy, but it is for this reason that the Daily Lives of High School Boys (DLoHSB for short) is in fact a masterpiece of a comedy.

One of the best parts about this show is that you can quite literally start watching the series from any episode, and it will not hinder your viewing experience noticeably in any way. DLoHSB accomplishes this in the amazing execution read more

Sora no Otoshimono is an incredibly remarkable series. As an ecchi genre type show, it surpasses the vast majority of them in terms of almost everything imaginable. Besides having a lot of fanservice, it is remarkable in terms of production quality, comedy, story, and character development. All in all it is a show that in spite of (or maybe because of) how ecchi it is, it manages to be solidly entertaining in every important way you can imagine.

Two high quality seasons do the series justice, with a third as of now currently in the making. Generally, the way the series progresses is through read more

Out of all shows that have been presented in Fall 2010, it seems there is no show like Panty and Stocking which has so decisively split viewer opinions into clear cut groups that either believe it's the best thing that's ever happened since sliced bread, or have banished it to the depths of utter disdain. The question I ask right now and will answer in this review is if one or even both sides are justified.

First thing that one should wonder is what this show was trying to accomplish. I'm not a fan of Gainax, and thus I am not extremely acquainted with their read more

Ore no Imouto is an uncommon example of a show that has fantastic production, but abominable execution. The concept is fairly original, featuring a younger sister who has a problem fitting in society as a high achieving student who is also balancing a hobby for collecting and playing imouto-themed eroge. While the show is beautiful with its detailed character/background designs, unique EDs for each episode, and decent voice acting, the show amounts to being almost completely worthless and an insult to the representation of otaku culture and the associated stigmas.

Let's start off with the single worst thing about this show: Kirino. Kirino is many read more

Sora no Otoshimono: Forte is the second season of the series of Sora no Otoshimono. Likewise, it's highly recommended you watch the first season before watching this show, as the story in Forte basically picks up immediately after where season one ends.

For those who don't know what this show is about, it's obviously an ecchi comedy at heart, but do not let this discourage your hopes of finding the foundations of good characters and story. Sora no Otoshimono has proven last year that the ecchi comedy genre when directed well is one that can create a very endearing story and truly likable cast read more

Ganbare Goemon, known in the USA as Legend of the Mystical Ninja is a pretty nice example of a video game series that transitioned well into an anime adaptation. Granted, the video game series itself is not well known in the USA and likewise, it's understandable why this gem from the past has mostly faded into obscurity for the English speaking world. If you're a person like me who is lucky enough to have experienced playing Legend of the Mystical Ninja for the SNES or any related titles in the series, you will definitely appreciate what this anime has to offer.

Starting with the story, read more

Shuffle! is a generic romance harem story, featuring most of what is generally accepted to be good and unfortunately bad about its type of show. For those who have never seen a show of this genre, it's probably a good place to start to accumulate a background on the common traits of these types of shows. Besides that it's a pretty unexceptional show, and a rather poor adaptation of its related visual novel (having experienced both, I will immediately tell you the visual novel is by far superior).

Starting with whats good, this show is not particularly animated most of the time being more on read more

Rainbow starts off fine with an interesting concept (boys from post WWII) but this show could have been so much more if they really stuck to that principle. As stated early on, the author wanted to emphasize the coolness of his characters, and given that, it shows in how little this anime develops anything else.

The art aside from some violent scenes is pretty average, and it's generally made obvious who the antagonists are from the art style alone. Given that, it reduces the amount of surprise and suspense that the show has. Minor points for the art successfully making me hate the villains and find read more

Darling (Anime) add (All reviews)
Darling is a cute series that deserves mention over other hentai anime. While you can't expect a really complicated storyline with significant development, a unique approach is chosen where the erotic stories that occur are through the imagination of the main character Jun, a porn mangaka.

You might ask how this makes Darling worth watching. The way the series (and I would assume the related visual novel) is set up, it is allowed to briefly cover a broad variety of popular fetishes. As Jun's wife Miyuki loves to cosplay before him to stimulate his imagination, different ideas ranging from a Chinese secret agent, space exploration, student read more
