If the memories you made while living faded after death, would you rather have not lived at all? Or would you cherish those memories to the very end?
Plastic Memories is a show that, while looking mediocre and somewhat generic on the surface, is willing to tackle some pretty heavy themes.

WARNING: This review will contain minor spoilers. Please keep in mind that it is difficult to write a wholesome review without revealing some of what happens.

Story- 9
The story can be considered as something that you're going to end up seeing a lot. Set in the future, Plastic Memories follows the protagonist, Tsukasa Mizugaki, who, read more

Here's one of the most highly anticipated runs of the season, Owari no Seraph.
But, does it live up to the hype? ... Not really. Anyway, let's start.
Story- 6
... It's not great, seeing as it can be summed up in one sentence:
It's Attack in Titan with vampires.
At the same time a mysterious virus named called the Apocalypse Virus spread, the vampires emerged from the shadows.
As a result, 90% of humanity was slaughtered, either by the vampires or the virus.
And most of the remaining 10% was enslaved by the vampires.
Again, it's simply Attack on Titan with vampires.
The story, compared to the manga, is extremely slow-paced, so much read more

Goddammit.
As an admitted fanboy of the first Aldnoah.Zero season, I was greatly looking forward to this, the second season.
But, I'm left with simply a feeling of disappointment.
Warning- There may be spoilers.
Story- 3

Disappointing. That's really all I can say. Even as a fanboy of S1, I'll admit that the story was at most, poor. From the cliffhanger of the first season, I'm not sure what I was expecting, exsctly. Inaho might be missing a few brain cells, or there may be a new main character introduced instead. Even that I would've been fine with.
Instead, Inaho is given a new, shiny, Deus ex Machina eye that can read more

So, what is revenge classroom about?
Well, that's simple. It's about revenge.
Story- 10
I haven't really seen many manga or anime that do this.
They take someone who's been bullied, and in this case, the protagonist, Ayana, is consistently raped and stolen from, among other things.
And then, she's almost killed when pushed in front of a car.
And what does she decide to do?
Ruin the lives of everyone in her classroom. Gather information, and put plans into motion. Simple, yet the sheer anticipation kept me hooked in the story.
It's strangely invigorating, watching Ayana plan and execute her revenge.

Velvet kiss.
I hate my friends. I lost a bet and they made me read this as my part of the deal.
Then, let's get on with the review.
Story- 7
So, the main character gets blackmailed into a massive debt, which he has no chance of ever paying back. So, what happens to him?
He's roped into "befriending" a girl. Except, this girl has a few quirks.
Art- 8
The art fits the genre of seinen.
It's... graphic, but lucky me, the *Ahem* guy parts are censored.
And that's all I'm going to say about the art.
Characters- 7
Some of the characters are just... odd.
So, as stated above, the MC got a huuuuge debt read more

Preliminary
Owari no Seraph, or Seraph of the End.
Honestly, I was brought here by Mokushiroku Alice, seeing that the plot authors are the same.
Story- 8
The story is where most people lose interest. Honestly, that's to be expected.
The Apocalypse Virus appeared, wiping out almost all human adults. As if that wasn't enough, Vampires came from the shadows, enslaving the remaining humans.
Meet Yuu, a boy who dreams of killing every vampire.
The series gets into the main story pretty quickly. Very quickly, his mindless bloodlust
turns to a need for revenge. Honestly, it's a lot like Attack on Titan, but at the same time, very different.

Preliminary
Mokushiroku Alice, or Apocalypse Alice.
Reading this was one enjoyable, dark ride.
Story- 9
The Labyrinth Disease. A mysterious disease that only infects girls. Yes, really, it's one of those diseases. Except this one spins it into a far better story. Rather than the girl straight - out turning into a monster, she creates a Labyrinth, hence the name "Labyrinth Disease".
After 6 hours, the Labyrinth will turn into an Eternal Labyrinth, which cannot be destroyed.
But, to destroy the Labyrinth, the girl has to be killed before then.
"Kill the girl, Save the world" is quite often the slogan of this series.

This is a light novel, which aren't read more

Preliminary
Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari.
Where do I start... oh right.
Story- 8
Some people consider this as a somewhat typical storyline.
The "hero" is taken from his world to another to fight against "Waves" of monsters that spawn once an hourglass in the center of the town turns to 0.
It's a manga with heavy RPG elements and a pretty good plot.
Art- 10
The art is amazing.
Characters are well drawn, with beautiful backgrounds.
The action is clean, and I love the way the armor and weapons of the different heroes are depicted.
Characters- 10
The main character is far from the typical selfless hero.
He's cynical with a negative outlook on the world around read more

Nisekoi (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
This is another one of those trending manga that becomes incredibly popular.
Is Nisekoi worthy of its insane popularity?
In my opinion, no.
Story- 5
It's typical and/or generic. The main character, Raku, made a promise with his childhood sweetheart to, presumably, get married.
She gave him a locket while she took the key that will open said locket. It's simple and somewhat boring. What i hate about this manga is that it's listed as a romance, but it's a harem. The "romance" never goes anywhere, and when it SEEMED like it might have gotten an ending, it crashed and burned.

This is the one aspect of the manga that is read more

Sayonara Piano Sonata, or Goodbye Piano Sonata, is in my opinion, one of the most underrated Light Novels that I've ever read. Of course, that's my opinion. If you disagree with it, just... go away. Please.
ANYWAY...
Story -8
It starts off with one of the main characters, Naomi, wandering through a junkyard. There, he meets a girl playing on a piano, who just happens to be a famed piano player who had escaped from her stifling life at home. Naomi helps her with something, and she asks him to forget about her, then just walks away.
The gist of the story is him forming a band with read more
