As someone that has closely followed the Layton games for several years, the idea of a Layton anime series excited me. Though, I was a bit skeptical about watching it at first because I was mixed about 3DS Katrielle Layton game and its lack of proper closure to the main story. I watched and closely followed the series in the second half of 2018. The Katrielle Layton anime slowly became a source of happiness as I binged more of the episodes, eventually following the series week-by-week. This review is written from the perspective of a Layton fan, so some of the things I say might read more

I gained slight interest of Genshiken after hearing about its premise. The story just being otaku life-style being explored in-depth and the praise I seen from the anime community/anime YouTubers made the series sounded very promising, though initially, I was turned off by its realistic otaku character design and the low production values of the anime to give it a shot years ago. My interest in the series came back at a time where I personally felt seriously depressed, questioning my purpose of being part of the anime/manga community as more of my in-depth, passionate analyses started to feel brushed off by most now, despite read more

Negima Manga Overall Impressions:

I wanted to read Negima way back in October when the UQ Holder anime was airing on Anime Strike. I loved the first few episodes and wanted to keep watching, until I heard from dedicated UQ fans that the adaptation was rushing the source material. I loathed unfaithful adaptations. So I came to the decision that starting on November, I would start from scratch and read the Negima manga. Given my growing attachment for harems (At the time I was obsessed with To Love-Ru), I thought this would be a fantastic time to read the manga.

Negima was such a beautiful ride read more

After reading the Moe Manifesto (A book that covers the history of moe, full of interviews from creators of moe work), I really wanted to look into some of the early 80s series mentioned. There were two series that caught my eye, Creamy Mami and Minky Momo. I could not find subs for the latter, so I decided to watch Mami since all of its episodes were subbed. I did not know what I would be getting myself into. Somehow, I was pretty hooked.

Creamy Mami is one of the most unique magical girl series I have seen. What stands out with this anime is how read more

I came across this series right after consuming one of SJ’s recent series The Promised Neverland. A friend I know on Twitter recommended two titles to me, Kimetsu no Yaiba and Astra Lost in Space. The latter was the one he loved the most and he told me it was a more obscure SJ title that has yet to see deserved praise. Given my sense of empathy, I wanted to look into Astra Lost in Space first to see if I would love it as my friend.

I was highly impressed with the art and character design, immediately thinking about why this has become notable read more

Out of all anime I have seen this year, Re:Creators has the most creative premise ever. I went into this blind, not knowing much other than some people saying that this anime could be an anime classic. I can totally see why that is now. The idea of creators meeting their own creations is a fascinating idea that has an endless pool of possibilities. It is a premise that normally fan fictions would be capable of doing. Just to note, I will be saying "creators" and "creations" a lot in this review, because those terms are important into understanding Re:Creators.

I have wanted to see read more

I have to say, the Sound Euphonium shorts provide much-needed humor for the main characters. While I did like the main story for Euphonium and it was straightforward as it could be, the thing I felt was missing was a lack of humor or characters that I could personally relate to. The shorts cover the characters in wacky situations, I had a couple of laughs from them. I've come to love the main characters after watching these shorts TBH, and those who haven't watched them should do so after watching the first season to fill in that humor gap lacking in the main story.

Teekyuu (Anime) add (All reviews)
It’s been a long time since I have smiled and laughed hard consistently in an anime ever. In just less than 30 minutes, I was able to grasp so much comedy and cherish the lovable characters. Teekyu is a comedy anime about nothing really. Its plot should not be taken seriously, the focus of the anime is the extremely fast paced comedy. When I say fast paced, I mean that the plot for each episode goes by so fast, you may not be able to process what’s going on.

Yet, that’s the genius of this anime. The two-minute length of each episode is just right read more

KADO is a fascinating piece of science fiction. Have you ever thought about the progression of humanity? As a species, we have slowly evolved in terms of technology, morality, and politics that has helped us become “better” people. What if humanity could advance greatly in just a short span of time? KADO has that answer. What makes this anime so interesting is that it covers many topics on how humanity could advance, using special tools that further enhance human capabilities.

It’s not just that, the more interesting part of KADO is how humanity and the main characters react read more

Parasyte is an anime I feel that the exact criteria of being a great anime. It is not the best anime, but it does enough for me be satisfied of the entire experience. To be real here, this anime really got me to analyze the positives and negatives of an anime thanks to the anime’s straightforward narrative. The anime really got me to think about a lot of things in terms of morality and myself.

I love how the anime explores the bond between a parasite and a human, and the two characters create a very interesting chemistry that makes you read more
