Your reviews are great but you shouldn't spoil the tone of endings in your review.Your all reviews are intended to be spoiler free,am I right??

is Guin saga a complete anime on its own ?
i mean u said one tale is being told so that means we'll get the feeling of complete ending right ? (hopefully u'll get my gist)

Yo. Hey there. Quick question, where can I read this one-shot https://myanimelist.net/manga/11069/Akuma_Bengoshi_Kukabara? I see you wrote a review on it, so I felt messaging you would be cool. Thanks and have a nice day.

Hello,
I noticed that you have reviewed a lot of anime and manga and are a popular reviewer on the website. I was wondering if you could give me some tips about reviewing anime and manga. I often feel that I have a lot to say about a show; however, I do not want to go ahead and write a review since what may seem okay and well written to me may not seem well written to others and it may even not be understandable to others since it might just end up being a mess of thoughts. So are there things you have noticed in the time you have been reviewing anime and manga that concern writing that you feel every reviewer new and old should know about and use in their reviews?

Hey, I just want to say I admire your reviewing methods a lot, and I also want to thank you for indirectly introducing me to Kaoru Mori's works, as Emma is on your favorite manga list and I became curious since a lot of the shows I've watched I always see your name lol.
HakataKatoki-san Jun 30, 9:18 PM
Oh, interesting take. I'll assume you haven't watched the rest of the series.
Yeah the dialogue is hit and miss. It's sometimes really random and sometimes doesn't match the characters speaking the lines.
But, you see, Monogatari is 87 episodes and ongoing, with three canon movies. It's a really big show, and Bakemonogatari is just the introduction to the main thing.
Monogatari series focuses on exploring and developing its characters thoroughly. There is a central story (sort of), but each arc is focused on one character.
You judged it too quickly, since Bakemonogatari is just an opening to the whole thing, and as an opening it does a really good job. Cause the main cast is confined to the characters introduced in Bakemonogatari. Several other characters are introduced later, but they only have behind-the-scenes roles usually. So throughout 87 episodes and 3 movies, the main characters are explored through several arcs. You can't really expect an introductory season to do so much in a series so long. You should have continued it. The Second Season is one of the best things produced in the anime medium as it completes the character arcs of some of the characters.

That said, the use of Japanese folklore, monsters, ghosts is done better in Mushishi, yes but Monogatari does a good job at it.
And the amount of stylization is a big plus. Hiw the series triew to adapt the "narrator" aspect of a written story is really commendable.
HakataKatoki-san Jun 25, 12:49 AM
So, man, I like your reviews and your taste is good cause Gintama.

Just wanted to ask, why'd you give Bakemonogatari a 6?
I've seen it praised a lot. I'd really like to hear your opinion of it, since you didn't write a review.

Unfortunately there are two problems with the storyline, both of which aren't immediately obvious. The first is the assumption that only girls of a certain age are ideal for becoming Puella Magi, with all that entails. The justification for this is debatable, and brings up the whole idea that "boys don't cry". The storyline is built upon the concept that adolescent girls are more emotionally unstable than boys of that age, yet this is an untrue statement for two reasons, the first one being that boys are also undergoing physical and emotional changes. The second reason is that boys are taught from a very young age that they shouldn't cry or show certain emotions, and the continuous bottling up of all those feelings more often than not manifests itself during the adolescent years.

According to modern science both scenarios are plausible. But should discussion about anime eventually turn into science debate which determines the quality of anime? Is your argument really that we should use science as a reason when we score anime. If this is the case its very odd you never mention any of this in your FMA or FMA Brotherhood review. Or do you think the science is more accurate in FMA than Madoka? Review concepts like this have to have internal consistency or otherwise it just seems they are applied randomly on a whim. It seems very odd to first criticise Madoka due to scientific accuracy but never do the same to FMA.

Madoka spoilers! You have been warned!


The second flaw is the explanation given as to why Kaname Madoka has more potential than anyone else, which again makes a major, yet highly debatable assumption. The simple fact is that if one follows the idea to its rather logical conclusion, the most powerful Puella Magi should actually be Akemi Homura. It's a far more conceptual plot hole, but given the usage of the many worlds theory, especially at the end, it quickly becomes a major issue that could destroy the foundation of the story.

I have to challenge this statement since I think its blatantly misrepresents Puella magi madoka magica. It is absolutely not the case that logically Homura should be the strongest. Homura`s wish was to save Madoka and that wish generates the new worlds. So the formula that generates a new world is: Was Madoka saved?. This makes Madoka the primus motor of all the timelines and Madoka is also the connection between timelines. Think of it as a car, Homura is the driver but the engine is Madoka. I think its very logical to assume since everything revolves around the being of Madoka she is also the one who becomes the greatest.

There is a certain manga that I think you would like called "Goodnight Punpun'. It's about a depressed boy living in Japan, and throught the story, he grows up into an adult. Maybe you could check it out?

https://myanimelist.net/manga/4632/Oyasumi_Punpun

It's considered one of the best manga of all time, and I personally rated it a 10/10
