[A Forest of Tights]

Tights. According to Merriam-Webster, tights are “a skintight garment covering the body from the neck down or from the waist down”. In this particular anime, we will refer to them as a skintight garment from the waist down.

Denier. According to Merriam-Webster, denier is “a unit of fineness for yarn equal to the fineness of a yarn weighing one gram for each 9000 meters”. In other words, a material with low denier tends to be sheer, smooth, and silky, whereas a material with high denier tends to be thick, durable, and sturdy. For example, a 30 denier tight (sheer) is finer and and read more

(Attack of the Giant Insects)

Giant Insects. Girls with large breasts. An isolated island. This combination usually spells death, danger, and destruction. And what do you know, there will be death, danger, and destruction. There will be nudity along with several guro scenes, there will be shitty-looking CGI insects, there will be unlikable characters who do morally questionable actions, and finally there be an inconclusive ending to an otherwise terribly written story. Overall, if you are expecting a good story from this OVA, then you will be very disappointed. On the other hand, if you are expecting giant insects attacking our characters, then read more

[How to Behave at the Movies – Re:Zero Version]

This manner movie was shown before Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu - Memory Snow began, this three minute movie explains to the audience what manners are unacceptable.

Demonstrating these manners will be the entire cast of Re:Zero, i.e., Subaru, Emila, Beatrice, Pack, Rem, and Ram. And, in standard fare, these demonstrations are performed by their cute and tiny Chibi versions, where they narrate and perform wacky skits, jabs, and puns.

Providing most of the commentary is Yuusuke Kobayashi, who voices Subaru, and he does a fantastic job, especially when he starts encouraging everyone in the audience to yell “E.M.T”. read more

[The Quiet Girls]

From the studio that brought you Rance 01: Hikari wo Motomete The Animation, Koikishi Purely☆Kiss The Animation, Baku Ane: Otouto Shibocchau zo! The Animation, and Real Eroge Situation! The Animation, comes Studio Seven's latest series entitled Joshi Kausei.

STORY:

It's a story about three “silent” high school girls and the random events that happen to them. You'll watch the girls get involved in some strange skits, such as riding a skateboard, playing with each other's thighs, be concerned about fortunes, and create origami in a family restaurant. And to spice things up, the girls are also involved in some risque situations like wearing wet clothes read more

[The Touch of Life]

Japan has always been the pioneers of creating ridiculous and strange stories for Anime. Take for example Akikan!, where steel and aluminum cans become magical girls and battle each other, or Hametsu no Mars, where convoluted stuff happens for no apparent reason, or Shimoneta, where the Japan government has banned anything lewd, but a group of “perverted terrorist” decide to go against the status quo.

But now, Japan has a released a show about how life magically appears from a tea cup, a plate, and even from one's breast. First, all of these “magical people” came from the Sengoku Era, where they all read more

[A Snow Festival]

For a series that is renowned for its brutal death scenes, spectacular action sequences, and unrelenting feelings of dread, depression, and misery, will learn that this OVA doesn't contain any of these elements.

Instead of scenes filled with gore and violence, they will be replaced with wholesome moments of children playing and frolicking in the snow, Subaru making witty comebacks and anticipating his date with Emilia, Rem/Emilia acting cute and cheery, and Beatrice acting her usually tsundere attitude. It's refreshing to watch a series that's known for its dark elements to have moments of happiness and relief.

STORY:

Now, its story is simple and can be read more

(The Art of “Special Massages”)

Massages are, by definition, the act of treating the body by rubbing, patting, etc, to promote circulation, suppleness, or relaxation, and our male protagonist certainly does these acts. Fortunately, this is a “hentai short”, and we need to apply hentai logic, so our male protagonist will perform massages, but also “special massages” to special individuals. So, for six minutes, i.e., five minutes of actual animations and a one minute ending song, you will witness the powers of the “special massage”.

STORY:

Based on Mizuwari Neko (Toyo)'s Webtoon Comic entitled 'Traditional Job Of Washing Girls' Body', this show is titled read more

(Heart of Glass)

On April 25th , roughly a year and month later, Studio Hoods Entertainment have finally released episodes 11 and 12 of Märchen Mädchen. These two episodes will serve as the necessary closure to this magical fairy tale, but after waiting for so long, does the show provide a “happy ending” or does it end in “darkness and despair”?

After watching both episodes, the show does deliver a “happy ending”, but, that and the action scenes are the only good things from the show, everything else remains relatively the same. The story continues to suffer from cliches, weak and lazy read more

[A Seriously Underrated Show]

From the studio and creator that brought us Kemono Friends comes their latest show: Kemurikusa. This original show is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi that hooks the viewers with its slow revealing mysteries and excellent world-building, dynamic character interactions, wide set pieces, and great soundtracks. The 3DCG may take some adjustment and getting used to, but it’s not necessarily awful. In short, anybody that’s familiar with Tatsuki’s work should watch this anime.

And also, did you know that Kemurikusa translates to “smoke grass”, “smoke plant”, or “smoke weed”. Yep, this is literally Winter 2019’s dankest anime. Thank you, Tatsuki.

STORY: 

Synopsis: A trio of read more

[Alternative Title – Goblin Slayer Threat Level at Maximum]

They are rage, brutal, without mercy. But you. You will be worse. Rip and tear, until it is done.
- Intro Dialogue to Doom (2016)

Having watched Goblin Slayer in its entirety, I can’t help, but be reminded of the video game Doom (2016). In fact, the quote above perfectly encapsulates what Goblin Slayer is really about. Killing, slicing, dicing, burning, piercing, bludgeoning, ripping, and tearing goblins apart. The violence is brutal and extremely gory. Our main protagonist, Goblin Slayer, will use any means necessary to kill as many goblins as read more
