I just finished watching Magikano and throughout the series I couldn't decide whether or not I like the anime, but by the end I found it to be okay.

Story (6):

The story follows a witch Ayumi Mamiya who is cursed to lose her powers unless she awakens the boy she saw in the mirror who happens to be the protagonist Haruo.

It's pretty basic as far as harem anime goes. To be honest, by episode three I wondered if this anime was intended to be a parody of the harem genre by just how over the top it could be with some of these cliches.

The episodes read more

While in the mood for watching an anime focused on food and cooking, this one was ranked in a top ten list for that genre. After viewing the twenty four five minute episodes I'd say it's decent, but probably not the best.

Story (5):

I give the story a rather low score because I feel that there really isn't much of a story here. It isn't until the last four episodes concerning the baking competition that there is something resembling a plot.

For the most part the episodes focus on more slice of life moments of the character and her "love interests." I put that in quotations as read more

I love the novel A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, so upon finding an anime for that story I had to watch it. For the most part I found it enjoyable and faithful to the original source material.

Story (8):

The story follows Sara Crewe, the young daughter of a rich widower, who enrolls in an English boarding school. For the first fourth of the anime, Sara is praised by everyone both in the school and outside for her manners, kindness, and how pretty she looks in her fine clothes. By episode eleven she receives the news that her father has died bankrupt making her lose read more

To be honest, I was hesitant to watch this one due to all the hype surrounding it. However back in the summer of 2014 I watched the clips of the two openings and immediately went to iTunes and bought both songs before even watching the show.

About a month later I gave it a watch and it quickly became one of my favorite anime series. Not since viewing Death Note in 2010 had I been so engrossed in an anime, staying up to early hours just to view the next episode.

Story (9):

This is one of the most original concepts I've seen in anime. It's an action read more

I just recently finished this anime and in general I found it to be entertaining. It is an older anime, but for the most part I found it enjoyable.

Story (7):

There is no main plot to this story. Basically the characters are adventurers and face several challenges and mishaps as they set out searching for treasure and adventure.

The best thing about this anime is the comedy. A lot of anime that are listed under comedy I don't find funny, but this one had me chuckling throughout the series. I watched the English dub and there are so many hilarious puns and breaking the fourth wall jokes read more

It took a few years for me to form an opinion on this anime. There are some good elements to this anime and others that are just horrendous. Finally I came to the conclusion that I'm not sure whether or not I like it.

Story (7):

The story is good. It is one of the more original stories I've seen in an anime.
The story follows the main character Lucy-a diclonius (a human-like creature with horns and invisible arms called vectors) who escapes imprisonment in a lab, and due to an accident washes up on a beach, only to be rescued by two college students. The head read more

I just finished this one last week. In short I felt this story had potential, and had great moments, but by the end just fell short of what it could've been.

Story (6):

The story is decent. Basically it takes place in a world where everyone can do magic, but everyone has a different amount of spells they can perform in their lifetime. Once someone uses up all their magic, they turn to ash.

The main character Kazuki only has eight spells, but because his children may be the most powerful magicians in the world, the three main girls (along with a fourth) all desire him.

I do like read more

Since I recently wrote a review on Free!, I'll now write one on the second season.

I really enjoyed Free!, but Free!: Eternal Summer is even better.

Story (9):

As with the first series, the show focuses on the main school's swim team participating in events. However, this time the group is now on good terms with Rin and the opposing team.

In addition to the drama inside the pool, I like the added drama in the characters' individual lives. For some of the characters, this is their last year in high school and they are all expected to choose what they want to do with their lives. read more

Free! (Anime) add (All reviews)
I went into this anime not knowing anything except that it's a show about a swim club and that it was pretty popular. Having never watched sports anime, I didn't know what to expect. After watching it, I love it.

Story (7):

The story follows a group of swimmers who were childhood friends who end up forming a swim club at their high school. They then plan to compete against other teams, and ultimately race against their old friend now rival at an opposing school.

The drama is nicely done. I quickly found myself invested in these characters and their dilemmas, both in the swim world, and in read more

Pupa (Anime) add (All reviews)
As of today, Pupa is my second least favorite anime I have ever watched.

Story (1)

The story begins with a brother Utsutsu and his sister Yume coming home from school. Yume is infected with the Pupa virus that turns her into a monster that can only survive by eating human flesh. Her brother also has the virus that allows him to instantly heal.

A woman named Maria captures the siblings for research. She persuades Utsutsu to forever act as food for Yume so she won't have to kill. This leads to gory scenes of watching Yume eat her brother. Also there are a few scenes of read more
