A lot of people have been referring to 3rei!! as the "Heaven's Feel" of this magical girl spin-off. Actually, a lot of people have just been calling it the second-coming of Heaven's Feel, as even the fan translations from Beast Lair have been scribbling out the title card and writing "Fate/stay night Heaven's Feel" over it.

3rei!! is undoubtedly the darkest arc of Fate/Illya, and the further you read into it, the darker it becomes. That said, has it reached the crushing emotional weight of Heaven's Feel? Not really. Will it reach there eventually... that is debatable.

Before I go on... a brief backstory.

Citrus (Anime) add (All reviews)
*ORIGINALLY UPLOADED MARCH 24, 2018

Winter 2018 brought us an adaptation of an ongoing yuri manga named Citrus, which began publication in 2012 in one of the most popular yuri magazine, Comic Yuri Hime!. Citrus may very well be the most popular yuri manga to date, both in Japan and in the west, just look at MAL’s popularity rankings for proof of that claim. Though highly anticipated by the audience keeping up with the series’ bi-monthly schedule, the anime was announced alongside a similar manga series named Netsuzou Trap, which bore a… less than satisfactory adaptation in Summer 2017, ultimately putting the yuri community on edge read more

Reigen. Mob Psycho 100's most beloved character, perhaps even surpassing the titular character himself. So what is this special about?

Well, the Mob Psycho 100 Reigen Special is about Reigen writing a book about his "experiences" with the supernatural. But as we all know Reigen is the biggest con in the entire series, and so are most of the recaps.

I think this special has truly opened my eyes to how damn good Bones is at animating recap episodes and keeping them fresh (I think the only thing that beats this recap episode is that one back in Re:Creators).

Retelling the events in the series from Reigen's read more

Honestly, I was disappointed by Ryuuou no Oshigoto, or The Ryou's work is Never Done.

Perhaps it was because Joey The Anime Man interviewed the creator a while back? At the time, I found both Joey's views and the Author's expression of his story to be particularly fascinating, not to mention how high it made in the Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi contest a year or so ago.

Bottom line, I heard a lot of things about it and I was excited, and even when the first two episodes aired, I was convinced that there had to be at least something that made it popular enough read more

Before anyone can answer the question: "What is Pop Team Epic?" I believe a more pressing question is more like "Why in hell am I writing a serious review of this shit post?"

Actually, I have an answer to that question, unlike the first one. First of all, I love my absurd and nonsensical Chinese cartoons; I have a special place in my heart (and in some case my Top 10) for shows like Nichijou, Daily Lives of HS Boys, and of course, Gintama. That said, I don't really think Pop Team Epic can really stand up to those shows when we are talking about how read more

I understand the nature of creative adaptations; even if the source material and the adaptation are utterly distinct in their approaches to the same concept, I am always willing to judge each respective to their own quality.

I recently started thinking about this again when I watched the drama adaptation of Okitegami Kyouko no Biboroku. Although I only watched two episodes as of the writing of this review, I found it to be a take on the original novel that was more meant for casual audiences that want something more on the "fun" side. With this adaptation, I indeed was having some fun, but there was read more

There is a lot you can say about the Boukyaku Tantei Series, but since none of them had been said yet and I don't have the resources to say more, I will say what is necessary to convey just how great this series is.

If you are familiar with NisiOisiN, the famously prolific author widely regarded for his masterpiece, the Monogatari Series, and also responsible for the Zaregoto Series, the Ningen Series, the Saikyou Series, the Densetsu Series, Katanagatari, Juuni Taisen and Medaka Box (etc.), then it should be easy to clue into the quality of the Boukyaku Tantei series. (I fully am willing to give read more

Read the light novel!

Ok to quickly summarize the advertisement here, basically, it's just Hanekawa cosplaying as Okitegami Kyouko from the Boukyaku Tantei Series, NisiOisiN's other series that takes place in the same universe as Monogatari.

I am reading the recent fan translations of the light novel as we speak, and I can say this with utmost confidence that MONOGATARI FANS SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO THIS SERIES.

You could even say that it's the point of this advertisement, so I don't think it's inappropriate to write about why you should read it in the place of a review for the advertisement.

That said, if you are a fan read more
