The following review includes spoilers for the season finale, but literally nothing happens in this show so it's totally cool:

Forgive me if this review seems rushed because the fact of the matter is that it is. I have spent twelve dreadful, painstaking weeks putting up with this nonsense so you guys don't have to and, frankly, it wasn't even almost worth it. There is literally nothing about NTR's story or formula that makes it worth watching. Hell, the only reason I haven't given consistent F's to every episode is that the art isn't terrible and Yuma is kind of cute. But that doesn't matter anymore. read more

I was first introduced to Yosuga No Sora during an ecchi panel at AnimeBoston several years ago. Me, being your run-of-the-mill otaku, thought the incest subplot was AWESOME and I threw the series onto my watchlist immediately. I mean, anyone who says they don't ship brother/sister pairings in anime literally all of the time is a liar. Unfortunately, that part of the series doesn't show up in full force until the last four episodes of 'FOUR DISTINCT STORY ARCS'. The rest of the series is just Haruka trying to bang other girls that he is less compatible with. There's the oujo-sama, the shrine maiden, the read more

(Please note, there are many spoilers in this review)

I typed up probably seven different openers for this review before realizing that nothing I say can possibly prepare you for what's to come. This introduction, or lack thereof, actually goes on to mimic the underlying themes of this series in more ways than one. WorldEnd (Which also goes by the incredibly long title of 'What Are You Doing At The End Of The World? Are You Busy? Will You Save Us?') is more than just the hyperdramatic adaptation of a light novel going by the same name, it's a story about never being prepared; it's a read more

Battery (Anime) add (All reviews)
After air conditioning and how it feels to take my socks off after a long day of work, anime and baseball (In no particular order) are my two favorite things in the entire world. That being said, when I first caught wind of Battery (No, that isn't a pitch-velocity pun), I was ecstatic. The fact that a baseball anime that emphasized emotion and relationships instead of action and energy was going to come to life was like a dream come true for me. However, after completing Battery, I think it's safe to say that it wasn't a baseball anime at all. Instead, it's a melodramatic, read more

Many years ago, when the young me was still trying to figure out what exactly anime was, I stumbled upon a title many of you may be familiar with, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. The way the characters essentially jumped out of the screen and beckoned for attention left such an impression on me that I actually cited it as my favorite show of all time for a little while. What I didn't know at the time, however, was that the mastermind behind the series, Hiroyuki Imaishi, would go on to form Studio Trigger several years later and, as many fans of the studio say, "save read more

Okay, so I don't know much about boats apart from what I learned from Kantai Collection (Which was still literally nothing) but I'm pretty sure it isn't ideal to have an entire crew comprised of fifteen-year-old girls. That being said, High School Fleet dives (Pun intended) into a world in which roughly 75% of the Japanese navy isn't even old enough to buy cigarettes. The result from this isn't an economical boom in the naval industry or increased maritime production, it's a complete, utter mess in which no one really has any idea what the hell they're even doing on a ship in the first read more

Harmony (Anime) add (All reviews)
"Day by day the world becomes a healthier, safer, more beautiful and wholesome place"

I honestly don’t know how to even start this. Harmony is the second in a series of [unrelated] films based on the works of Japanese science-fiction writer, Satoshi Itoh (Also known as Project Itoh). This particular piece hones in on the life of Tuan Kirie several years after she attempts suicide alongside two of her friends, Miach and Cian. Harmony is set in a world ruled by technology — where nanomachines are implanted in children at birth in order to “preserve” their lives under the pretenses of health and safety. Miach is read more

You've been to Walmart before right? Well, you know how they have cheaper versions of products that you've grown used to -- and how those products never particularly live up to the hype of whatever thing they're supposed to be replacing? Yeah, well Brynhildr In The Darkness is basically that, but turned into a 13 episode anime. Now, I just want to note that discounted versions of reliable products aren't always necessarily "bad," but that at some point, you just have to bite the bullet and be like, "Man, I wish I bought the brand name one instead."

Brynhildr is the latest animated series from Lynn read more

THIS IS A "TEN YEARS LATER" REVIEW to commemorate the anniversary of Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni.

You know how they call marijuana a gateway drug or whatever? Well, Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (Which also goes by the title "When They Cry") is considered by many to be a sort of gateway anime. Now, when I was 14 years old, I was one twisted individual. Hell, I still am to some degree. But what basically happened is back when I was first getting into anime, I started looking up different "Effed up" shows. Obviously, I was intrigued by the idea of a whole bunch of read more

Following the widespread success of the original Love, Chunibyou, And Other Delusions (Which I am just going to refer to as Chunibyou/Season one because who has the time to keep typing out that title?), Heartthrob/Ren seemed like an adaptation that would be impossible to avoid. Based on the 2011 light novel series by Torako with art from Nozomi Ousaka, Chunibyou caters to any fan of the slice of life or comedy genre through quick-witted dialogue and a lovable character roster. Being picked up by Kyoto Animation definitely aided it's relevance, and the series has now become a bombshell among the anime community in both Japan read more
