Preliminary
It's 1 a.m. and I find myself delving into absolutely wonderfully depraved pseudo-hentai manga for reasons beyond my own comprehension.

I end up reading a handful of chapters of this, thinking "yo this really looks like some Kobayashi's Dragon Maid shit".

It is.

The author and artist of this is listed as an "original creator" for all the Dragon Maid seasons and specials.

This is literally just an R18 full-fledged manga very similar to the relationship between Quetzalcoatl and Shouta, with all the goodies of incest, rape, and hypnosis between a shota and busty mommies added in.

God bless Japan. Thank you KyoAni for hiring such talented creators.

8/10; Very mediocre read more

To merely call Little Witch Academia a "Japanese Harry Potter", I believe, is a great disservice. While true, the settings are similar; a school teaching magic arts - that is where the similarities end. The Little Witch Academia TV series is a result of incredible dedication and talent from everyone involved. I love everything about the short film, movie, and series all together, but for this review, I must retain it only to the TV series.

Little Witch Academia (now on referred as LWA) has the charms of an absolutely banger original story, despite anything the creators may or may not have taken inspiration from, purposefully read more

Sounan Desu ka? takes the very unoriginal general concept of "what if you got stranded on a deserted island?" and applies it to anime, where it's actually something original (if there's more survival anime that came out before this, let me know and I'll eat my hat). However, as original of a concept as it may be, it still falls short as an anime.

The story is the only decent category, followed by the music. It's not something every anime does, and I have to give it some credit for that. It's a concept that's been done worse, but it's also been done far better. Adding read more

Shinryaku! Ika Musume is a lesser known gem that excels in a genre that did not become popular until many years later.

Shinryaku! Ika Musume is a lighthearted, comedic slice of life in which many traits of modern anime within the same vein can be traced back to earlier titles like this. I loved things like Gabriel DropOut and Dragon Maid, but Shinryaku! Ika Musume seems to have done many of the things those more modern anime prior even to their conceptualization. The comedy is of good quality, and the characters are funny. The art is moderately above-average for its time, and the music is catchy read more

I don't know why this review is listed as preliminary, I've watched this series in its entirety, read the manga, and am currently rewatching the anime.

This is a drunk review, and I've drank enough to have drunk purchased multiple patches and stickers related to this show off etsy, so maybe take this with a grain of salt, but I feel I am being honest right now.

Girl's Last Tour is an impeccable anime that is the very definition of unique. Everything in this anime has never been done before and is the epitome of a new and fresh experience. The animation is unique, the story is read more

Liz to Aoi Tori is a masterpiece of filmwork with an immense amount of effort dedicated to its creation and refinery.

The story is much deeper than what it appears as on the surface. I'm not one for "whoa dude this is soooo deep" sorts of media, but it doesn't feel anything like the creators of Liz to Aoi Tori were stretching themselves beyond their realistic capabilities as writers to seem "deep". I think watching this halfheartedly out of mere boredom lends oneself to really not appreciating what Liz to Aoi Tori has to offer in its entirety. The storyline is not captivating or entertaining in read more

Konohana Kitan has the premise to be a decent slice of life, but falls pathetically short. I really wanted to stick with it longer, but this anime is just awful in so many aspects.

Konohana Kitan suffers from some of the worst pacing in anime I've ever seen. The writing feels like a high school student wrote the script for every episode in under a couple hours with a mandatory so-many-hundred word goal. From the very first episode, no effort is put towards building a halfway decent foundation for the rest of the show. The main character becomes attached to other characters absurdly fast, and just read more

The second season of Hibike! Euphonium, in my opinion, is better than the first. This season feels like a more refined and concentrated version of what Hibike! Euphonium is, and that improvement alone turns a good anime into a great anime.

The story isn't any different on paper. The Kitauji high school orchestra continues working hard to achieve their goal of playing at the nationals. However, this second season shifts the main focus from playing in a respectable competition to the individual characters behind the music, their personal struggles, and giving some insight to the history that made them who they are today, and how it read more

This is one of, if not the #1 favorite side special episodes for any anime I've watched yet. The two episodes are wildly different from one another as well as from the main episodes. One isn't that great, but the other completely makes up for it.

For special #1, there's nothing special. It's an extremely fanservice-y and lewd episode where all the main characters are nude for practically half the episode. On top of that, there's some weird slime tentacle softcore hentai shit going on. God bless Japan. Not my thing, but if it's your's, it's there if you want to see it. If this was read more

Another spectacular slice of life comedy from Doga Kobo. This anime feels like a twin sibling to Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, but one of the siblings is emo and just different enough to be considered a separate personality.

As much as I'm a sucker for comfy slice of life anime with cute girls, I find it increasingly difficult to review them in a way that doesn't make them sound bland as ever. I really do like the genre as a way to wind down and relax at the end of the day, maybe get a few smiles before going to bed, but I understand why some people read more
