‘My little swimmer: friendship is magic’ - The anime. I love it as much as anyone, but you have to admit the title fits. More now than ever.

One of the best parts about watching anime is seeing a series you loved get another season. The characters you spent so many hours getting to know, the scenery you spent admiring *cough*, the thrilling parts that made you sit up in bed to get a better look, and the emotional parts that made you cry.

Free! Dive to the future is a great example of that.

I’m not saying it’s perfect, because it’s not. Heavens knows there were far read more

Do you like cool and quirky characters, complex and multi-layered plots, and awesome knife fights?

If so, you came to the right place. This anime has all that and more.
We’ve got Lin, the straight crossdresser who looks irritated almost all the time but’s a lot brighter than you give him credit for. We’ve got Banba, the easy-going, enigmatic and downright cool guy who’s totally reminiscent of Spike Spiegel. We’ve got Enokida, the obligatory hacker who’s actually pretty interesting by himself, the perpetually unlucky Saitou who really is just not cut out to be an assassin, and the ‘Submarine Ninja’ who, despite the goofy name, read more

IT IS IN NO WAY as bad as everyone makes out. It has flaws, sure, but find me an anime that doesn’t! It was part entertaining, part relaxing, and part awkward, but overall mostly enjoyable.

It’s a lot less plot-heavy than your normal Isekai anime. Most of the season is just Satou wandering around the new world he finds himself in, getting to grips with how things work and making friends along the way. He doesn’t automatically stumble upon the main villain’s giant plot to destroy the world as we know it. He gets into a few fights helping people, but mostly he just takes things read more

Gakuen Babysitters
AKA: I think I just felt a little tug on my heartstrings

This is one of those ‘healing’ anime that helps you see the goodness in the world. It’s pure, it’s uplifting, it’s adorable. It’s not what you would call a masterpiece – it’s similar to watching a baby giraffe try to walk for the first time. Its clumsiness is part of what makes it so endearing.

Even people who don’t tend to like little kids much – me, for instance – will find that this show appeals on a level you wouldn’t think possible. It’s hard to describe just how many times this series read more

Well, it’s the beginning of the end. The real end, the one we never expected after all the hoaxes and fakes but knew nonetheless would have to come eventually.

12 episodes of pure awesomeness. You can tell that watching all 350+ episodes has really paid off when even the appearance of minor characters is enough to make you smile or shout joyfully at the screen. (Or groan loudly as you hope that this is the arc they’ll finally be killed off.)

Gintama seems determined to bring back every single character who’s ever been featured. You’ll see people who you’ve almost completely forgotten about back to help read more

Have you ever felt that there’s something missing in your life? That you don’t have any real complaints, but everything just feels meh? Like you want to go far, far away and leave civilization behind, to a place where you can just be free?

No? Me neither.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t relate to Kimari and the others on some level.
Kimari is a girl who wants to stop aimlessly meandering through life. She makes the intial decision to go to Antarctica on a whim – a spur of the moment thing – but after that the determined face comes on and she tries her read more

She teases him; he blushes and resolves not to let her tease him again.

Rinse and repeat every single episode. The anime is divided into a series of shorts each a few minutes long; there are normally about 4 or 5 per episode. Each is a small self-contained story about Takagi’s and Nishikata’s daily lives in and out of the classroom. This isn’t a plot-heavy series and it’s not meant to be. What it is meant to be, however, is a character-oriented series, and so that shall be my main focus.

Just to get the art and music out of the way: the art style is read more

Is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon? Evidently not, because our MC sure picks up a lot of them there and everyone thinks he’s a total saint.

I can’t really blame them though; it’s hard not to love Bell despite his denseness. He’s a pure and real kind MC done well, and his struggles in the Labyrinth feel real. He isn’t immediately OP and fails a lot initially. He acts consistently kindly and it feels natural.
Hestia is an awesome character, and just plain adorable. She does become a lot more yandere-like later in the series, but always puts her family first regardless. read more

I’d call Mahoutsukai no Yome a very wholesome anime. It contains loads of different genres that are normally incompatible, but here are all beautifully melded together to create a work of art. There are aspects of drama, horror, comedy, slice-of-life, adventure, and even romance. And of course, it’s set in a fantasy world.

It has a unique pace; sometimes large amounts of screen-time are dedicated to small details and sometimes the anime will almost disjointedly jump from one scene to another. This can be quite disconcerting and takes some getting used to. However it is resolved several episodes in, and the anime begins to feel much read more

Camping 101
Starring: cute girls!

We’ve had cute girls sailing to Antarctica, (Further than the Universe) cute girls in the apocalypse (Girls’ Last Tour), cute girls singing, dancing, and playing instruments (anime like K-On!, Love-Live! And Hibike! Euphonium), and just cute girls doing nothing whatsoever (Lucky star and Yuyushiki). Now we have cute girls going camping.

It literally does what it says on the packet. It’s a very relaxed slice-of-life anime about camping, including all the aspects you would expect to see in a camping anime. It goes into great detail about the campsites they visit, the equipment they use (everything from how they buy it to read more
