Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai is a decent anime. If its brand of comedy appeals to you, you'll end up having a fun time with it. If not, it'll end up being a disappointingly empty experience for you.

First off, if you're thinking of giving this one a go, you have to be ready to expect these:

• Ecchi content (well, duh)
• Vulgar Jokes
• Slapstick Comedy
• Lack of any meaningful character development
• A very bare-bones story

This anime follows the shenanigans of the members from the 'Neighbours Club' that is composed of social outcasts - loners who can't make friends due to one reason or read more

After successfully throwing people off with its awfully deceptive opening that makes you think otherwise, this show brings forth nothing but serious themes and questions. It is, in essence, a case study on the depths of humanity’s dark hearts. As such, labelling it as a series with “loosely connected episodes containing nothing but death-games” would be a rather large disservice to it – despite the fact that the statement isn’t necessarily a lie.

Human beings are selfish creatures by nature. By pushing them to the limit – to the doors of death – you can see them unleash their ugly side. That’s the concept utilized read more

Hyouka (Anime) add (All reviews)
When asked whether or not I'm a KyoAni fan, I'd always say that I'm more or less indifferent towards them. They've got their works which I absolutely adore (Clannad, Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya) and then there are those that I can't say I'm a big fan of (K-On! comes to mind). After enjoying Amagi Brilliant Park immensely, I came to Hyouka as their next work on my to-watch list. And "color me" extremely impressed. I don't think I'll have issues with calling myself a KyoAni fan anymore.

Here's one thing Hyouka manages to do right off the bat - get me interested in the shenanigans of read more

I expected it to take me on an entertaining ride. On an action-packed, fun-filled journey with romantic elements between the leads acting as spice to further enhance the flavor of the story. Would it be correct to say that it succeeded in proving itself worth my time? That it satiated my expectations?

Yes, it did. It did that and much more. Oh so much more. Some elucidation is in order, yes? Elucidate I shall -

Katanagatari is a story about swords. Contrary to what most people would think by reading the synopsis or watching the pilot episode, this isn’t a journey about collection of the swords but read more

Whether or not you possess the capacity to stomach over-the-top dialogues, scenes and atmosphere in a show is a decisive factor when it comes to what you’d ultimately feel about Kill la Kill when you watch it. It is a really fun show for those that can stomach OTT stuff. On the other hand, it is a cringe-worthy ride for those that can’t. The first episode starts off with our protagonist, Ryuko Matoi, challenging the Student Council president Kiryuin Satsuki holding a giant blade that is apparently one half of what makes a huge pair of scissors. That, my friend, in itself is enough to read more

"This isn't a movie. It is a commercial. God damn it!" - anyone who saw it and hoped for a series AND then came to know about what it really is. I know that feel, bud. Trust me, I do.

Makoto Shinkai strikes again with another one of his visually stunning works - this time with a 2 minute commercial instead of a feature length film, however. And because it is *his* work, I'll actually skip commenting on the artwork in general. Because it is stunning, to say the least. And I don't know how else to describe it. I shall talk about character designs, though. read more
