"My sorrows are overwhelming, but my virtue is left to me."

Before starting "Now and Then, Here and There" I was sure that I've seen everything that isekai genre has to offer. However to my suprise it turned out that there are still anime that I was wrong and that fantasy anime that explore themes such as war, trauma, torture, exploitation and totalitarianism in a ways that neither fall into the exploitation of cheap shock value category nor are they pretentious and too in-your-face exist. "Now and Then, Here and There" is a mature anime that tackles it's themes with respect and understanding, despite being ...

Joshiraku (Anime) add

"This anime is full of ordinary dialogue so that viewers can fully enjoy how cute the girls are"
Joshiraku is a comedy anime about four rakugo performers and conversations between them, but everything's over the top, obscene, meta and unpredictable. So don't let the opening quote fool you, because Joshiraku is a comedy slice of life but it's also so much more. Joshiraku is life.


Basically it's non existent, each episode begins with an character starting a conversation which then can develope into literally anything, everything can happen during those, girls can end up discussing etymology of japanese words, have a guerilla fight in a christmas tree ...

Paradise Kiss (Anime) add
"Once upon a time there was a lady. She had no children, and no happiness either. And at first she cried for a long time, but then she became wicked"

"Paradise Kiss" is the first Ai Yazawa's work that I got to experience and I have to admit that I'm ashamed that I didn't watch it earlier. It's definitely one of the greastest examples of bildungsroman, in anime, done right. Add to it the fact that it's also one of the few punk anime ever made, and you've got a really interesting title that should not be overlooked.


As I stated in the foreword, "Parakiss" is first ...

Ranma ½ OVA (Anime) add
,,Each absurd has its own logic"

Despite being merely 6 episodes long this OVA manages to capture what we love about the original series while not getting boring for a single bit. First 4 episodes are a self contained stories that are mainly pandering to the fandom who wants to see cliches from the original series done again but in a higher quality. If you enjoyed the less serious episodes of the original then you'll love what this OVA has in store for you, all main characters appear for at least a few scenes, the plot is just a pretext for puting the main cast in ...

Good pretender
If I were asked about wit studio's speciality I'd have no choice but to say "Cathartic payoffs", but whilst in their other works payoffs are an rewarding addicion at the end of each arc, Great Pretender is constructed solely around them. The series is divided into 3 minor and one major arcs which all tell a separate stories but are connected by the main cast, each arc also tells focuses on a different character from the main cast. On this level the story can be compared to Lupin III but with storyarcs and less style.

As you may suspect, the plot of this series ...

Preliminary (134/134 chp)
When it comes to short comedy manga then ,,How to Treat a Lady Knight Right" is one of my favourite ones. Despite the premise being rather simple the execution is very good and it's a joy to read. So if you're looking for some short cute romance manga then boy oh boy I've got a thing for you.
For most of the manga the plot is nearly non-existent, the main story is about a romance between Fooly and Leo but apart from that there's really not a lot going on. In the last parts of the manga there is an bigger thematic arc but it's really ...

Preliminary (21/? chp)
Koisuru Yankee Girl tells a story of romance between 2 characters,title character Ayame Sudou and her beloved one Nagi Kazami. The main premise of the story is their relationship and character of Ayame, who on the outside seems like an dangerous deliquent capable of doing hedious deeds but on the inside is caring,chaste and bashful.Interactions between the main duo emphasize her duality and provide a lot of funny moments which later become more and more wholesome,the comedy is mostly really well handled,but some of the jokes may seem weird or have bad timing.The romance is also well written and watching how the characters get closer ...
