Gantz (Anime) add (All reviews)
Gantz is one of the most emotionally exhausting anime I have ever watched—but for all the wrong reasons.

I have no problems with the basic premise: Two boys—Kurono, a horny, self-absorbed and insecure high school kid, and Kato, his taller and more self-assured best friend, are killed while trying to rescue a homeless man on the subway. They are transported to a strange room with a mysterious black orb that sends them on suicide missions against aliens in the city. Along the way they interact with other people who have also seemingly died. In particular, they befriend a girl named Kishimoto who Kurono lusts after read more

What is Prison School exactly? Is it an Ecchi? Harem? Hentai? Romance? Nope! Prison School, at its core, is a bromance comedy with tons of hilarious sexual humor. The comedy is first-rate and this is probably the funniest anime I have ever watched. The humor was raunchy, the timing was spot on, the characters were bizarre and uncomfortable. It was great.

The plot can be summed up in a few lines. After a foiled attempt at peeping on the girls’ shower room, the five male students at an all-girls high school are sentenced to serve a month in the on-campus prison which is run by the read more

No spoilers beyond Episode 1—except that this anime sucks

The best way I can describe Grancrest is a shoujo version of Berserk with no memorable characters or success at world building. From start to finish this anime is a gigantic mess with few (if any) redeemable qualities.
Story: Grancrest starts with a Romeo/Juliet style wedding between two rival kingdoms being violently interrupted by a 3rd party. This wedding would have meant world peace but now for laughably underdeveloped reasons, it cannot proceed. On the macroscale, this leads to hostilities between the kingdoms and allows the “age of chaos” to continue. We are then introduced to the read more

This anime is like Pizza that’s been left outside for about 24 hours—not quite a steaming pile of shit but not something that I’d recommend ingesting either.

At its core, Accel World is a mediocre MMORPG, mini-harem, shounen. It’s a tale about a high school loser, Haruyuki, joining a sophisticated VR PvP gaming subculture. Playing this game allows one to slow down time in order to PvP battle, but also lends itself into manipulating real world situations. In addition to gaming for the sake of gaming, Haruyuki follows his stubby little c*** into the “Accelerated World” in hopes of winning the favor of his crush read more

Ladies and Gentlemen this is a rare example of a perfectly mediocre anime. Flawlessly bland, exquisitely insipid, wholly vapid. Watching Owari No Seraph is like eating air, there is simply no taste, good or bad.

Owari No Seraph: Nagoya Kessen-hen is the uninspired continuation of an anime that should never have been made.

Lets recap. A mysterious virus wipes out most of humanity and vampires come out of the woodwork to wage war on the surviving humans. Yu, our cliche shounen, hotheaded/immature/cocky/must-protect-everyone protagonist, has joined humanity's army to fight the vampires. He really really hates vampires for killing his childhood friends. He really read more

KnK Series OVERVIEW (Spoiler Free):

KnK is an action, detective, psychological, horror, romance anime series produced by ufotable and based of a series of light novels written in the late 90’s. KnK differs from most anime in that
1) The core series is broken down into 7 films rather than 20+ easy-to-swallow episodes.
2) Each film has a different director
3) The story is told out of sequence, with the chronological order of the films being: 2, 4, 3, 1, 5, 6, & 7.
4) The total content of the Knk is less than what you might find in a longer anime series. The first seven core movies (i.e. excluding epilogue and OVAs) read more

Psycho Pass 2 feels like a cheap reboot. In episode 1 we get another introduction to how dominators work, how enforcers are expendable, how some inspectors follow the rules while others think for themselves, how Sibyl can change its mind on lethal force, etc. After the first episode it's like they skip to the 2nd half of Psycho-Pass 1 where instead of hunting Makishima they go after this guy named Kamui. I’ll leave it up to you to stumble through this mess of a sequel but it suffices to say that Kamui is no Makishima—in no small part due to the series’ lack of a read more

This series opens with the time-tested anime narrative device of granting extraordinary power to an ordinary guy. Although it is an extremely common premise, that doesn’t necessarily doom the series to the tired Shonen formula. I see it like moving a pawn as your opening move in Chess—everyone from novice to master starts there. And so, to gauge the quality of an anime’s storytelling one needs to watch how it plays out.

Story: 8/10
The story begins with Izumi, a geeky 12th grader, getting infested by an extraterrestrial parasite. This parasite, Migi, misses his intended target, the brain, and instead takes up residence in Izumi’s right hand. read more

This is one of the most annoying romance animes I’ve ever watched. Now either hit the “not helpful” button or keep reading to find out why.
Story 3:
I chose to start InK because I heard it broke with the romance genre’s stale tradition of ending with a high school rooftop kiss, and instead actually followed the characters into their adult lives.
InK’s longitudinal narrative style was the one positive thing that I can say about this train wreck of an anime (that and its surprisingly accurate use of medical jargon).

This anime is about Kotoko, a ditzy, klutzy, dimwitted, high school girl, and her one-sided read more

No spoilers.

Wow! What a gem. It’s too bad most potential viewers will casually overlook NnKx for its low MAL score, ecchi tag, retro artwork or the saliva-swapping theme. I found it to be a charming and unique take on the cliché, slice of life high school romance story.

False Cons.

Ecchi- This is not an ecchi anime—no harem, no boob shot quota, no sloppily-introduced sexual situations. Urabe is a babe but that’s hardly a reason to slap an ecchi tag onto NnKx.

Art-The art is great. It’s a little retro 1980’s but it’s still of great quality. I stopped even noticing it after episode 1. read more
