This movie was one of the biggest letdowns of any anime I can remember. I wanted to like this film and it did have amazing art and animation but it just fell short of expectations. It is very much undeserving of all the hype. My score of a 7 would be far lower if it was not for the art.

I was told this was a powerful tearjerker and that it would have been balling my eyes out with it's moving story of a mother raising her two wolf children and all the complications that entails.

That was all a lie. I wanted to enjoy ...

I'll get right to the point with this review: Cool visuals, interesting character design, lackluster story.

This OVA has a lot of potential and I get that it's a 3 episode tie-in to a light novel that ran for about a decade. Everything is so rushed and it barely makes an attempt to develop the characters outside of one small arc. We get the gist of the world but this leaves you hungry for story. I am willing to bet that an equal length or slightly longer movie with an all encompassed story would have fared better.

The art was fantastic and the animations are ...

The third chapter of the Date A Live series lives up to the first two and manages to be a fun, entertaining ride filled with twists and a refreshing level of character development.

The story is solid with each episode changing the stakes for the characters. This season manages to cram several full arcs without sacrificing much from any. We are introduced to new friends and enemies while characters from prior seasons continue to develop and grow. Every episode will keep you on the edge of your seat. A fulfilling ride from start to finish.

The visuals are crisp with minimal shortcuts taken. The art ...

If you stumbled upon the page for this anime and are somehow thinking about giving it a shot, just don't. It's a waste of time.

Awe man, this one. I believe I watched this on MTV or something a few years back. I didn't understand it then and after reading synopsis now, I still don't get where they were going with this. The story is atrocious and goes nowhere. The protagonist is a twat.
The animation, oh god, the animation. The graphics for the game this is supposed to be based on look better. It's almost like the result of a performance art piece to see ...

Tsugumomo (Anime) add
Tsugumomo is a funny, entertaining anime with a unique premise and pleasant characters that will keep you watching all the way to the end. Overall, there isn't too much to say about it. If you are looking for something that isn't too heavy of a watch with a bit of a lewd chuckle here and there, look no further.

This series took me by surprise. While not the greatest anime ever made, Tsugumomo has its own special charm that will keep you watching until the final episode. It isn't for everyone but fans of light hearted comedies will be pleasantly surprised. Watching the characters grow ...

I'm mainly choosing to write this review in protest to the sea of negative reviews written by those who clearly don't understand the intent of this anime.

Darling in the Franxx was meant to be a homage to many classic Gainax anime. To call it a cheap copy or plagiarism and not understand that those who made it are former employees of Gainax who made the anime they claim it copies. Several studios collaborated to create this as a love letter to those old series.

To watch this entire series and not grasp that, to me, is mind boggling. The series is a bit ...

I'll make this review somewhat quick. Chrno Crusade was simply an alright series. While it has issues, I enjoyed the series somewhat and if it's on your watchlist and you have nothing else you want to watch, go ahead and give it a go. It's not bad but it isn't great either.
The art was acceptable but I couldn't get over that Kids-WB-saturday-morning-cartoon look. Most animations were crisp and clean but there were corners cut, especially with flying characters (ever flying scene was a static character moving around the screen), and the awkward animations of some side characters.
The story was decent and did suffer ...

I wanted to enjoy this anime. It had an awesome opening and while the protagonist was annoying from the get-go, he was at least believable. It starts strong and then putters out as the series progresses.
Starting off, the art style and animation work is absolutely phenomenal and at no point did it ever falter. Characters are crisp, movements are fluid, and the amount of work the creators put into the visuals is evident in every frame. The violence and gore is top notch and every wound is visceral and fulfilling.
The sound is also superb. No overused soundboard effects.The music could overall have been ...

I had a hard time getting into this one and for good reason. The premise is absurd but not in an endearing way. A society of cockroaches is allowed to live in some guy's apartment because he's too much of an alcoholic slob to do anything about them until he gets a girlfriend or something. A female cockroach falls in love with a random cockroach from another apartment. There's a bit about cockroaches being at war with the humans but it just comes across as odd. It's creepy. The roaches are not endearing and their interactions with humans will make your skin crawl. Think A ...

Straight from the heart of the OVA boom of the mid 1980s comes Roots Search, a weird sci-fi horror with a rushed, bland plot and the finest mediocre animation 1986 had to offer. I couldn't tell you were I found this one as it had been in my collection for quite a while but I could not recall where exactly I'd obtained it. Probably part of a larger batch with some other equally terrible 80s OVAs.

I watched a sub on Laserdisc. The best part was those sweet refraction effects that just don't look the same outside of Laserdisc.

The story was awful. Quite cliche. ...
