God this was painful to watch.

I don't want to waste your time as this anime does, so i'll go straight to the point: this is literally the worst thing i have ever seen and it's the edgiest thing i remember ever finishing. Of course, i only finished this because it was fun as hell to watch with someone else, i could not have standed a single episode if i was alone.

The first reason is because it's ugly, the only decently looking thing is the opening because it's so obviously "inspired" by that mahou shoujo anime everyone knows about and some glitch effects that you'll see read more

You can’t be tricked into watching this show expecting it to be something different, the cover makes it very clear what it is, this isn’t a bad thing, but the content is.

I always thought i was a sadist, but apparently i’m a masochist, since i made myself sit through this whole thing.

Super powerful teenager who’s the only character with a japanese name accidentally meets naked tsundere that proceeds to attack him. Holy shit doesn’t that sound like literally every single show in this genre?

I don’t think using character archetypes is necessarily a bad thing, lot’s of shows have showed us that you can do read more

Helck (Manga) add (All reviews)
Helck is literally the most fun I ever had with fiction.

It doesn't sound like anything particular innovative, and it isn't really, the Demon King was defeated and they're holding a tournament to choose the next one, does the twist that the guy who killed him is in the tournament and goes around with a funny face saying that he hates humans makes it more interesting? Of course it does.

Helck has a lot more comedy in the early part than the rest, i'm not going to pretend it's a series that "starts childish but get serious" or anything, it's just a series that happens to mix read more

This review is spoiler-free, I won't give you any information you wouldn't find out by searching it or by reading the first chapters.

An absolute joy to read, both on it's visuals and the writing.

"Land of the Lustrous" is captivating, it looks like nothing i have ever seen and has an amazing use of the constant black background to craft loads of striking scenes coupled with dialogue that perfectly fits what it's trying to convey, this wouldn't be nearly as much of a masterpiece if didn't had this specific artwork. While it may not be as detailed as most manga are, this kind of composition works read more

So far, this is a big disappointment.

After having watched two great somewhat similar shows this year, i was looking forward to this one, specially after having seen how the show looks, which i believe is the main reason most people are giving this one a try.

Unfortunately, the production is the only good thing about this show, and on some cases even that is a issue, specially on some action scenes, when the character's don't even look like they inhabit the world of the background(or just stand there doing nothing for no reason at all).

The main issue i have with this show, are the characters. Most read more
