Rewrite (Anime) add
Have you ever look forward to a new episode that you can’t stop thinking about all throughout the week? Well, that was the exact opposite with me and Rewrite. Trying to make a joke about wanting the show to be “rewritten”, but now I just wished it wasn’t written in the first place. Everything about it was a whole lot of wrong.

I’ll admit, I have not played the original visual novel. However, I won’t use that as an excuse to why I didn’t like it. There were other adaptations of works by Key that were fairly decent. Planetarian was one that was came out the ...

Servamp (Anime) add
Looking for a series that constantly likes to add characters and ideas, then let it all pile up and do nothing with them? If that’s the case, then “Servamp” is right up your ally.

To make things clear, I do not mind the ideas the show has to offer. I found the concept of Servamps and Eves to be quite interesting. The problem I had with it was how everything was presented. Each episode gave us new subplots after another where eventually we have a bunch of things happening at the same time with almost no conclusion. It then makes me question what the main plot ...

Taboo Tattoo (Anime) add
Never before have I watched through a series on a weekly basis and loathed the day when a new episode came out. That all changed when I decided to continue watching “Taboo Tattoo”. What started off as a generic, but passible, story quickly turned into a barrage of nonsense and a jumbled mess.

Like I just said, the story is nothing out of the ordinary. Boy gains these unknown powers and is thrown into this battle against others with the same powers. The first three episodes weren’t all that bad, but things changed drastically when the next few episodes came around. I can’t describe it any ...

When “Re:Zero” premiered, I was quite impressed with it, and it continued to impress me even more as the weeks rolled by. Still, originally, I had thought that this was going to be one of those shows that would remain low-key and eventually wind up in obscurity. Never did I imagine how huge of a success it became, but I can definitely understand why that is.

First off, I would like to point out that this is based off a light novel series which deals with a not-so-average teenage boy being taken into a fantasy world. There are countless light novel-based shows being made recently, and ...

Having watched through the entire series, I can honestly say that the title is suiting, for this series is monstrous. There is a lot I have to say about “First Love Monster”, and it’s not exactly what many may be thinking of. While this wasn’t a show I was entirely looking forward to for that season, but the synopsis still caught my interest. Unfortunately, what I ended up getting was twelve episodes of absolute garbage.

Let’s get the story portion out of the way. Reading the summary is what made me want to give it a try, and probably made everyone else not touch it with ...

If you're looking for a heartwarming story about the reuniting of lost friendships, then Anohana: The Flowers We Saw That Day is the perfect choice.

The one thing I like about the story is it manages to make a big impact despite being so simplistic. Every moment from this show is crucial and doesn't stray too far from the main plot. We do get a bit of supernatural elements since one of the main characters is a ghost of sorts. However, there is reason to it, and it blends well with the other portions of the story, making it almost feel natural.

Something like this requires much ...

Are you ready to place your bets? Because you just might "have a lucky day" with Rio: Rainbow Gate!

I'll be straight and say the concept is ridiculous, but that's where its charm comes from. Set in a casino resort where over-the-top duels occur and a dash of fan service for some spice. The main premise is the only iffy thing here, which is your typical "magic item collecting" scenario. My problem with it is there's not a whole lot to it that makes it any interesting. I also had a minor issue with the shift in the story's progression. This happens around halfway through, and ...

Showing that even the coolest characters can be quirky as well, Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto redefines the term "eccentricity".

There is nothing too grand in scale when it comes to the story. Each episode contains at least two parts that entail different stories. Most of them are set in the school, while the others are outside of that setting. If it weren't for the fact that the series is a full adaptation of the manga (which only lasted a little over 20 chapters), I kind of wished there was more. everything that happens comes into play later in the finale, which I still liked. However, ...

As much as these types of shows inevitably gain popularity for obvious reasons, for me, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is one of those cases where I can't side with those that have enjoyed it.

The premise, in simpler terms, is basically "zombies with steampunk", but there definitely is more to it. For the most part, I like the world that has been set up. I should point out that I'm not big on the zombie genre. Despite that, I gave Kabaneri a chance, and unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. It's not necessarily the plot, but I felt like there could have been more. We ...

One of the more recent and popular Shounen JUMP titles, My Hero Academia comes to life in its well-deserved anime adaptation.

As said within the show itself, the story feels like something out of a comic book. While that's true, that mainly pertains to the very beginning, or in this case the first few episodes. Though, I can't say it's similar to other stories, because the show has a unique twist with how superpowers, or "Quirks" as they're called, work and put into practice. I should point out that the anime doesn't cover a whole lot from the original manga. Even if a second season has ...
