YU-NO (Anime) add (All reviews)
Growing up in the mid 80s, things really took a turn for the better by 1990; in terms of both look and story, anime was entering is high age. Sure there were gems in every decade going back to the 1940s, but every now and then we get a prime example in various entertainment mediums how not to fall short of greatness. Yu-NO is one of the BESt examples of the worst way to try and make a hentai. HOw doth one fail at this?! lol

I have conflicted thoughs on how to score this, as the look was fairly good, even though dated, when compared read more

This is not hentai (RX). This is very vanilla, showing mainly breasts, and some light humping/ strandling, even just over panties. But no close ups, nothing truly explicit or actually more adult than a very softcore film.
So if you were expecting something like actual Hentai, this might not be for you.

As for me, however, this was a bit of a treat as I angage in watching older and older anime shows.

What we have here is a female lead, named Sara, that went through a traumatic experience in her youth, and seeks to aid others with their mental traumas. Seemingly hired by anonymous benefactors, likely the read more

Having accidentally seen the 1931 version, I finally came upon the real, 1918 version, and as a fan of very antiquated things, I loved it!

Though from the silent era, when animation was less about even using cell, which had not really come around yet even in america, and simply about what seemingly amounted to motion capturing different pictures- frame, after frame, after frame.
BUt growing up with claymation shows as a child, I dont hate this.

ON my quest to see much anime, I of course could not pass up any of the oldest still available to watch, and I encourage others to not pass up the read more

So just to let people know, as this is a recap, this review shall be short but not sweet. OPINIONS FOLLOW!

What we have here is an interesting way to recap one whole season and almost half of another. Whereas usually recaps follow right after a shows season ends, like it states on the show page; the first is but a recap of the initial 9 episodes of the 2nd season, and the 2nd recap retells the events of the first season that aired almost 10 years prior. Albeit considering the gap of time between seasons, it is still odd how the recaps are ordered.


So as read more

Preliminary
NOt an over the top hentai, but still a good one to watch as it was so short.

I can sympathize with the male lead, sex can be draining after a long while. NOw then:

Basically most people whom seek relationships look for a person with similar interests so that there isnt just air in the conversations. Without giving too much away all I shall reveal is that this show was about a kinda nerdy otaku girl, a male with similar interest and a childhood friend along for...the ride lol =p Decently portrayed what I truly belive is the fantasy of most people, whther otaku, read more

HEres the nitty gritty:

In a nutshell what we have here is a classic case of ecchi /harem risque shots of very sexual fanservice in exchange for emasculated, constantly disappointing male characters. Though this seems to be the norm in anime, its tiresome and got old long ago.

That being said, there is IN FACT a plot of some merit to this show which , believe it or not allows for moderate enjoyment aside from the panty/ P***y outline shots and bare breasts ( yes there is an uncensored version, DOOOY) .

If you wanna add another anime notch to thine belt pick this read more

I have noticed far too many drawn out reviews of this show I just finished, and though I am just about to watch the special and ova, I am reminded of my quest to never see such a time wasting anime again (true 7 or better).

Anyways to cut to the chase this show could be seen as an allegory to government and political intrigue in the real world (but most could sadly only equate that idea to James bond instead of the factual, shady organisations those spy dramas are loosely based upon). The show tries to masquerade most of the time as a late high read more

I encourage more people to find this as it is a part of anime history. Truly a monumental achievement back in the eighties, to put the ideas of Clarke and Asimov to paper and shoot cell after cell was pretty kool! lol

We have the basis for most high tech, futuristic genres in this anime. Space exploration for the purpose of repopulating in a cleaner, longer lasting sense via terraforming other worlds. Sound familiar? You bet your cheeks tis'! With this movie you have the idea and what it might seem like to pitch long term space sleep and travel to prospective colonizers read more

I initially liked this show because it had a brutally honest male lead that was also a loner despite the fact that he was intelligent. *Sighs* Its called a rom com, but honestly I have seen way better shows than this that did not just finish so open ended or BLEH that I wanted my time back. Really some parts were ok, but the absurdity weighed heavier.

There was massive potential for growth and REAL closure concerning the unique personalities of the main characters and how they interacted, yet t'would nae be so. This show could have stood to be longer to finish things read more

So just to give a little heads up for you Library Wars fans out there, this will be but a short n sweet review to get the (review) ball rolling.

Story: Basically without giving too much away: it revolves around how gossip and misunderstanding of others can sway people to outrageous assumptions that lead to disastrous results. Simply believing someone is wretched or helpless or taken advantage of without knowledge or true insight into such situations always seems to get "The mob" riled up, torches lit and pitchforks sharpened and ready to poke( OWIE). However...anyone whos anyone will know that since most people are dumb and read more
