*You’ve probably already seen this movie but regardless, mild spoilers for the premise that truly reveals itself whole past the synopsis and maybe a few specific spoilers along the way*

When most people think of Kimi no Na wa, they think of an simple emotionally gripping, beautifully animated masterpiece that touched them at their very core. When I think of Kimi no Na wa, I think of a tedious, convoluted, contrived, and ultimately misguided emotion-based time travel story blessed with wonderful visuals and cursed by its confusingly bad time travel narrative and equally hard to stomach main leads.

I know, I’m a buzzkill.

So, why my cynicism? read more

“To be honest, I expected a lot worse, but this one was still pretty bad.” -some prick on the internet

*Spoilers for Gundam 00 Awakening of the Trailblazer*

So, let me get this out of the way. A lot of people seem to believe that this is the only bad installment in the Anno Domini timeline of Gundam, as well as the worst by that virtue. That is not true. Yes, this film is insanely dumb, with asspull after asspull, and it is preachy as hell, but the Second Season had a lot of these same problems, and actually, as controversial as this may sound, Second read more

"If the best thing I can say about your show is that the girls are hot, then your show is terrible!" -CodeBlazeFate, approx. 1 month ago

Hey look; it's everyone's least favorite cuntbag back for another round round of demolishing a long since dead horse. This time, we're gonna be taking a look at the lowest ranked anime of all time (well, at least on this website anyway), with an aggregate score of 1.94/10 as of the time I'm writing this. That number is impressively low to say the least. Produced by the same people that produced everyone's favorite nightmare, Mars of Destruction, this anime actually read more

By now, I think it's fair to say that Mars of Destruction is one of the most incompetently put together anime of this current millennium, if not of all time. As a result, it has become somewhat of a meme in its own right; A punchline of sorts. Whenever a friend asks you for a quick and probably painless bad anime that they can laugh at for a bit, this is probably your go to choice from gut instinct alone. As such, it's been widely mocked and brutally analyzed to kingdoms come. So, why make a review of it? Simple; because if you know me, read more

*Spoilers for both seasons of Gundam Thunderbolt*

The phrases "Robots are cool" and "War is hell" are nothing if not ubiquitous with Gundam. Anyone who fancies himself even a remote fan of Gundam can tell you that. Yet, while most war stories opt for the "war is hell" angle, there aren't that many of them that really feel...human. Sure, we can have something like "Apocalypse Now" and "Saving Private Ryan" which accomplishes that, but most of the time, we get "SEED Destiny" and "00 Second Season" which have it's characters come off as more "idiot/asshat tools for a broken narrative" than truly human characters that make read more

*Spoilers for Gundam F91*

Potential is something that can be rather frustrating or even tragic when unfulfilled, depending on the circumstances. If nothing went wrong in terms of production and the product simply wastes its potential on bad writing, it can be rather irritating. For better or for worse, Gundam F91, Yoshiyuki Tomino’s attempt at creating a new UC Gundam saga, is certainly the latter. It's like a rising college football player dying of CTE; tragic, as the victim was unable to tap into its potential for reasons far beyond its control. What was planned as a full 52 episode series reduced to a mere 13, read more

*Spoilers for Char’s Counterattack*

A harrowing tale of love, betrayal, grudges, death, and faith; an epic battle to save the world; a final battle to settle one of fiction’s greatest rivalries and conclude an epic saga that has spanned an entire decade.

Much like Char’s plans themselves, this movie didn't really work out that well. In fairness, it did at least give us what we were promised: an epic conclusion to the rivalry between Char and Amuro that passionately ignited once again, but the way everything is handled makes it so that it's an exhibition of how stupid people can be moreso than a triumphant yet read more

Given that this movie is a modified version of the OVA with new scenes added it, and the fact that I've already tackled the original OVA, I think it's only fitting that I modify said review and add to it, not out of disrespect for this movie, since I would never disrespect something so great, but because I feel like talking about Gundam Thunderbolt again since it's so damn good, and if I did, I would largely come up with the same review at best and something inferior at worst. So, enjoy.

*SPOILERS FOR MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM THUNDERBOLT*

Thunderbolt is definitely an interesting installment within the Universal read more

"If the best thing I can say about your show is that the girls are hot, then your show is terrible!" -Me, now.

*Spoilers for Akashic Records*

Before I start the review proper, or rather, this long, epic roast about why this show is a total generic and irritating fraud that actually manages to squander any potential it had for some lazy comedy and infuriating LN bullshit clichés, I have two things I feel I must notify you of. First, a decent chunk of this review will be spent analyzing the ideas this series had and how with some major and minor tweaks, the series could've been read more

I've played my fair share of games. I will fully admit that I have played games since I was 4, and I managed to git gud at some pretty hard games, like the Megaman Zero games and Robotech Battlecry. Now, I must confess:

I am not a pro or competitive gamer.

I've never done any E-Sports, nor have I done any real competitive gaming. The closest I've gotten to is dabbling in some online Pokémon battles and some "For Glory" on Smash Bros. 3DS. So, this was certainly an interesting series to look forward to, as while we've definitely had some game-oriented anime in the past read more
