Like I usually do, I go to my favorite anime website every season and watch the 1st episode of each anime. If I'm somewhat into it, I usually stick around; and this one caught my attention.

Basically it's your typical good vs evil anime with the good guys primarily focusing on the 3 brothers, while the 1st two older brothers are far more interesting, the third and youngest...well honestly could've done without him. Didn't really do much or affect much of the story except for maybe like 5 or 10 minutes of the story in ALL of the series. Really. Like your typical good vs evil read more

I really do not know what to say about this one. It never really blew my mind or made me want to dump it after a few episodes. For the most part, it was a pretty decent anime, but nothing great or crappy, it's just kind of in the middle.

Story wise it's pretty simple. There is really no twists or turns, etc, it's kind of your typical bad guy shows up, new hero is born and they try to stop them. In this case the new hero is Hajime, who is somewhat unique in some sense. She rarely tries to resort to violence, instead she read more

When I first saw this I really didn't think much of the artwork and I bet that probably turned a lot of people off, TRUST ME, don't walk away from it. It will grow on you, like it did for me. In the end the art work really complements the story telling and mood of the anime. It kind of provides a sort of surrealism to the whole think. It seems real, but really isn't, kind of feel.

Kasuga, the main character, lives in a pretty boring town. He wakes up goes to school, reads books, etc and dreams about his "muse" Saeki. That's all read more

Wasn't sure what to expect with this anime when I started watching it, but glad I finished it. It was certainly one of the better animes of last season and I looked forward to watching it every week.

Are you a loner? If you are you can probably relate to the main character Hachiman as people like to call him. He's pretty much given up on people, thinks they are just leeches for attention and view their relationships as superficial and pointless. That's usually how he approaches everything and people hate him for it, but deep down inside he's a pretty nice his own way. read more

While the concept in this anime is pretty cool, the characters and story line fall short. It's kind of mix of digimon mixed with yuigoh except people summon with their phone instead of cards, etc. Seems less childish and corny that way I guess. While the summoned demons are pretty cool, the characters are ehh.

The main character is such a goody too shoes I just can't ever relate to him. He's just TOO good to be true in my honest opinion that it makes him seem unrealistic, childish and foolish. They did show us a bit of his past as it being a rough read more

If I had to recommend an anime from this year or the last, I'd recommend this one. Shin Sekai Yori or "From the New World" is truly a great piece of work.

A lot of effort was put into the story and it showed on the anime. It flowed almost flawless, that you didn't even realize that you just watched 20+ minutes of it. The subtle clues, the main characters progression from young to older, everything was done so well. As for the premise of the story? It's very simple. The value of human life. If you've seen the entire anime you'll know what I mean read more

I heard some things about this anime so I decided to give it a shot. Here's my review:

Basically it's a boy meets girl love story of sorts mixed in with some sci-fi drama and comedy. There's really nothing wrong with that format, but it gets overused and many of times, it's always the same. In this anime it's no exception. The love story part would have been nice if they actually made better characters, but the characters just plain suck. Hikari is your prototypical goodie two shoes with a "dark" side (yeah didn't see that one coming..rolls eyes) and Takaru the male lead is just read more

I really wanted to like this anime. The first episode I watched gave me hope that this would be a good anime and so I decided to stick around, now I don't know if I should have.

Basically there are 3 main characters. Nova, the katana wielding special forces guy in the Arcana family, he's a pretty serious looking guy from the outside, but he's got his soft spots for certain people. Probably the more mature one of the 3 mains. Next is Liberta who is your typical goofball that always ALWAYS follows his heart and doesn't really think things through. He's impulsive, but hides read more

High School DxD looked like your typical harem/action/drama anime like those of previous seasons such as Ladies vs Butlers, R-15, Kampfer and Maken-Ki. Even though HSDXD follows the same agenda, it's significantly better than the harem animes I mentioned.

So what's better? Well for one the story line is a lot more coherent and serious. Yes there are some silly moments, but the story line does progress mostly every episode and it does it rather quickly which is kind of a downer since it seemed like there was more to it than it seemed. Though it's not their fault. Harem animes like this one (where they read more

If you have seen Onegai teacher and thought it was great. This anime is for you. You'll love, but.....

If you have seen Onegai teacher and didn't think much of it or thought it was ok, this anime is probably not for you.

It is pretty much a clone of Onegai Teacher, remade for the 2012. Honestly, so far through 4 or so episodes, it's the same ole same and well, in my opinion it just gets boring.

To make a long story short, this anime is probably not worth my time. It may appeal to others who thought Onegai teacher was great, but I thought read more
