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'm 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 I read more

Money has always been the core of everything, especially in the realm of entertainment mediums. In the case of the anime industry, when a work has a high budget, people behind it can go a little bit wild in forming their ideas and emotions onto the screen. In contrast, when they are short on funds and/or urgently want their product to sell, they use numerous slick marketing techniques and don't put too much effort into crafting the product. Now you may ask: "But what does it have to do with Darling in the FranXX? It doesn't suffer from a low budget, nor it tries to read more

I have never been interested in the sport of boxing. I didn't have anything against it, but, back then, the chance of me watching an actual match or something related to the sport itself would be as big as the understanding of the Internet of a 90-year-old grandpa. However, everything changed after I had watched Hajime no Ippo, as not only I truly enjoyed it to the fullest, but it also sparked an odd interest in the previously avoided sport. Naturally, when I noticed that in the Spring of 2018, there's going to be an anime centred around the said sport called Megalo Box, I 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's 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 most read more

The leaves have fallen, the windy days and chilly mornings have appeared; it's the start of the best season of the year. With my favourite's month arrival, we got quite a pack of new anime to digest with a wide range of emotions. Different studios have yet again filled our ever-hungry stomachs with their representatives, ranging from action-centred goodies to cute girls and finishing on edge fiesta blobs. There was Wit's newborn hot show, which has completely stolen the spotlight as the most popular non-sequel, Pierrot's abomination, J.C.Staff's new food porn and more, yet even though I had so many pieces of work to pick 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's certainly the latter. Many people have been drawn back because of read more
