[MasterCard: “Priceless” Visual Novel Promotion]

(W-Toon Studios and DMM.futureworks decide to make a 10-30 hour long visual novel into twelve 4 minute episodes. This is how they accomplished it.)

Hire a script writer to create a story about a boy who turned into a cat because of a girl named Patricia of End, and to turn back into human is with a kiss –– $1000

Hire another writer to create many uninspiring and forgettable characters with no depth, background, or development –– $500

Hire a flash animator to create some good animations, and decent background scenes, but unfortunately have all your character models appear like bobbleheads –– read more

(The Very Definition of a Generic ‘Isekai’ Show)

Noticing the word ‘isekai’ in the title, reminds me of the many related series and mangas that I’ve seen and read. Most, if I recalled, were pretty enjoyable and entertaining. I guess, you could say I enjoy the ‘Isekai’ genre to a certain extent. However, this series just yells with genericness from its lame title and boring synopsis to its dumb-looking thumbnail to its list of genres (i.e. adventure, Harem, Comedy, Magic, Romance, Fantasy) that are commonly found in fantasy romance-comedies. With all this information in mind, I immediately knew that read more

(The Girl from Black Lizard Planet)

“Spy”, whenever I hear that word, I think of James Bond, the Bourne Series, or the Mission Impossible series. Basically, men with guns with a strong emphasis on action, and less on espionage and infiltration. However, in this anime, our main characters are not men with guns, rather girls with guns and a lot of wit. And more emphasis on espionage and infiltration than outright action. Still get ready for some great spy action, fun and engaging characters, a rocking opening song and intro, and good animation and art. I certainly enjoyed read more

[A Disservice to the Manga]

Anime adaptations from visual novels, light novels, and manga form the majority of every season lineup. And during every season, I would checkout the various shows that piqued my interest. One show that interested me was Hajimete no Gal. Since, I was familiar with the source material, I expected an adequate adaptation. Unfortunately, my expectations were not met. I wanted the show to focus on the growing relationship between the two main characters and their many “firsts”. Instead, what I watched was a shoddy story-line with rushed plot events and one-dimensional characters with no development read more

[I Watch It for the Plot]

Everyone, including me, knows why they clicked this particular anime. I mean, it’s no secret that this anime oozes with fanservice in mind. If one were to view the thumbnail of this anime, you will see a bunch of scantily-clad girls showing cleavages and panty shots. For me, that’s enough information to let me know that I’m going to watch this show for one thing, and one thing only, and that’s the “Plot".

STORY:

Archangel Lucifer disobeys God and is send to Hell as a fallen angel. In hell, she meets Leviathan, and learns about The read more

[Middle-School Romance]

Anime shows entailing romance, adolescence, and school-life are nothing new; many follow common themes, employ cliche characters, and have hackney narratives. And, while, this show may share similar themes, its characters and narrative go beyond simple cliches. They add hints of realism and truth, recreating events people could relate and reminisce about. Tsuki ga Kirei may not subvert the romance genre, but its stellar technical production, realistic narrative and charming characters are both refreshing and remarkable.

STORY:

The show features a simple storyline summarized as: boy meet girl, boy falls in love with girl, boy dates girl, boy and girl stay together forever read more

[4 Minutes of Disappointment]

There's nothing worth noting in this Special. There is no story, no character development, no semblances of personality in the girls, and no enjoyment. There's only the decent animation and visuals, and the okay sound design.

Actually, if you compare this Special with the parent story, you will notice that every scene used here was used in the parent story (for comparison see episodes 1, 7, and 9).

The only difference between these scenes and parent scenes are that the three girls (i.e. Yui Hanasaka, Natsuki Momohara, and Moka Aoshima) are now wearing swimsuits. That's it. There are no other read more

[Here Comes the Battle Angel!]

Noticing the names 'Yusuke Murata' and ‘ONE’ on this 57 page one-shot raises many readers' anticipations. They expect the same level of humor and action from One-Punch Man in this manga. And, as a previous reader, this one-shot provides the same great humor with adequate action. Everyone, who has read a previous work by ONE, should give this one-shot a chance.

STORY:

Daichi Oogami is a transfer student, who wants to have a normal school life. However, all the males students in his class have a different agenda. They have discovered that Himiko Natsuno is an angel and read more

[A Shitty Version of Love Hina]

Inaba Rabbits is similar to Love Hina, in terms of its premise, however its execution and delivery is sorely lacking. In fact, upon reading the first chapter, everyone will realize how predicable, simple, and unexciting this manga really is.

STORY:

Ookuni Kenichi made a childhood promise to an unknown girl promising that they will both become shrine maidens to the Inaba Shrine, and ‘tie everyone’s fate’ and make everyone happy. Years later, he returns to Inaba Shrine to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps, i.e. to become a head priest, and to have a reunion with that promised girl. Unfortunately, read more
