I am genuinely surprised.

I did not expect to see an instalment of the Goblin Slayer franchise that is even lazier and more devoid of life than the TV series, yet here we are; witnessing a movie which begins with an approximately 25-minute recap combined with a voice-over narration from one of the characters. Of course, the scenes this movie decided to show us once again are only the most crucial moments, like the infamous rape scene from the first episode, the Elf character almost being raped, and the Priestess lying naked beside the Goblin Slayer. I am sincerely thankful for bestowing on me the read more

Expectations are an odd thing, aren't they?

When I saw the trailer for Japan Sinks for the first time, I was nigh immediately sceptical of its quality and what was in store for me as a viewer. Even though the name of one of my favourite directors in the medium was plastered all over the promotional materials, I anticipated witnessing a failure of massive proportions, unable to evoke any meaningful emotions or produce a remarkable experience. To no one's surprise, I unconditionally loathed Japan Sinks on every level imaginable.

Thanks to the wonderful invention that is the Internet, I have exposed myself to a lot of awful-looking read more

A heart.

Is a component many works seem to neglect to implement into their final structure. Understandably, people can view it as an irrational generalisation, yet to me, this is how more often than not seasonals taste, in the ever-growing landscape that is the anime medium. They feel as if they had no soul behind them; not juicy at all and very bittersweet. It's not vital to having fun with the show through and through, yet its absence hinders potential intenser emotional attachment one might have. Nonetheless, shows with this hard-to-describe segment still make their appearances, and Mob Psycho 100 2 will, without breaking a sweat, read more

Art has many forms and sometimes a work, which breaks all moulds, becomes something of immense importance, incomprehensible value and message far beyond our grasp. A creation which challenges your own views, ideas and beliefs, to the point where you commence to question yourself and your purpose on this world. A product which fills you with an unmatched amount of knowledge and truths of our universe, whilst keeping your basic and primitive needs at bay. A lesson which displays our ignorance and narrow mindedness and shows us how little we mean in the grand scheme of things and how vast the world around us truly read more

I am at a loss for words.

Not because of the show's quite questionable and more than broken quality, which I and many others, have been pointing our fingers at since the first episode made its appearance, but rather something... much more bizarre. I find it astonishing how much controversy and heated exchanges a single scene has sparked up among the viewers, even though its importance, in the grand scheme of things, is as insignificant as one can be.

And I will never understand how and why a mind-numbing phenomenon of this calibre came into existence, but I digress.

Goblin Slayer is not a fundamentally weak story, and read more

We, the anime community, have been blessed once more with yet another edgy bullshit to digest, which has steadily and firmly joined the edgefiesta family. The newly born child of edge called Mahou Shojo Site sat among its emo relatives such as Ousama Game, Mirai Nikki and others and as their successor and production doA's first TV series, it did its job pretty damn well; I mean, succeeding in being a completely lifeless and rotten experience is quite an achievement...

Mahou Shojo Site is the prime example of how NOT to make the first episode, heck, of how not to make an anime. Through its read more

What makes a joke funny? Is it a well-thought build-up, steadily tied up, making us want to hear the punch line established at the end of a gag? Is it the topic a joke tackles, politically correct or, even better, the incorrect one? Is it the way it is presented and conveyed to us, with the use of different signals, voice tone and other small things people telling us the joke want to use in order to increase its impact? Or is it just the timing of it? No matter which of these reasons you choose, all of them are pale in comparison to the read more

A first impression. We get it from anime's synopsis, source material and sometimes even from the "thumbnail" and title alone. Something that can start a huge buzz around a particular work and can literally make it the most famous and the hottest show of the season, huh, sometimes even a show of the year, be it 2016's Erased and Re: Zero, or it can doom an anime from the very beginning, which the most recent Hajimete no Gal is a great example of. And in case of Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni, it is certainly the latter. Many people have been drawn back because read more
