A perfect example of an attempt at horror gone wrong. Ousama Game: The Animation is in short, a train wreck and easily the worst anime to premiere this season.

In all 12 of its episodes, there is very little to be said about what the show accomplishes. If anything, the more you watch, the more you will hate every passing moment.

The anime starts out somewhat promising and quite typical with regards to most horror anime. There is a lot of disbelief and confusion at the beginning, typical of anyone that receives random text messages from an unknown sender. This quickly turns into madness and read more

The anime many seem to love, but seems to fly under the general populace’s radar. Hunter x Hunter, your seemingly proto-typical shonen anime coming from a manga that started in 1998, does a good job at entertaining but like many other long form anime series, have trouble dealing with the pacing and monotony that comes with the long story.

Beginning as a light hearted, humor filled, coming of age story, Hunter x Hunter does a very good job in setting up the stories descent and shift to a darker, more mature tone as the show progresses. With 148 episodes in its 3 year run, the read more

One of the more interesting and emotionally driven anime I’ve seen this season, Inuyashiki is a concentrated look into the psyche of two individuals at two ends of the spectrum in attempts to see what i means to be human.

Inuyashiki is the anime adaption of the manga by Hiroya Oku, some may be familiar with his previous works such as Gantz. Like Gantz, Inuyashiki provides a brutal insight on people’s motivations and desires, and I think that leads to some of the show’s interesting moments.

Beyond the first episode, we don’t get a background of the aliens or any other understanding of the how read more

The predecessor and big brother to Ryohgo Narita’s Durarara, Baccano is an experiment in storytelling that falls victim to its own devices.

Baccano is an unconventional story told from multiple perspectives, while also jumping back and forth through time. At just 16 episodes, this anime is in some ways a breeze but also capable of losing you in its whirlwind of trying to beef up a not so interesting story with a wild delivery.

This is an anime that is lauded by many in the community as a special one. The storytelling is held in high regard and is well liked by so many, so I decided read more

4 years later, the juggernaut returns. The anomaly that is Attack on Titan premiered in anime form 2013 to worldwide acclaim. It saw a meteoric rise to the forefront of the anime world, and rightfully so. There was so much hype, whether for good or for bad, and no one could talk anime without bringing up AOT, and then it vanished, more or less, discounting recap movies, live action movies, spin-offs, and every character imaginable cosplayed at conventions. Still unsure whether it was because of budget issues, or timing and keeping in line with the manga, it exited the way it entered, until now that read more

If a detectives evidence board were to come to life, this anime would be it.

Set in a somewhat fictionalized Tokyo, Durarara is a masterclass in multi perspectival story telling. Durarara or DRRR chronicles the daily occurrences in the district of Ikebukuro. Being the first of 4 seasons, these 26 episodes do a lot and very little to set us up for the rest of this epic.

The show has an interesting setup in that the episodes are sequential, but they focus on pieces of main events and even go as far as taking several episodes to show a singular event from multiple perspectives. In some read more

Coming halfway through the Manga’s 13 year run, Claymore is at its core a revenge tale full of action and sword play with medieval aesthetics, i.e. the name of the anime, a reference to the medieval sword.

Over the course of 26 episodes, we get a well paced narrative that somewhat ends with a bang and then fizzles, with lots of backstory, self discovery, and conspiracy along the way.

The art is clean enough and typical of the time. It makes the somber setting believable and adds to the overall dark tone of the show. The colors are subdued, there is lots of blood spraying read more

School drama, plot to save the world, assassins, what more could you ask for in an anime.

Assassination Classroom is a unique combination of several genres under the guise of a goofy, cheery school life anime.

The anime’s story is pretty fun to watch as it evolves over the 2 seasons. We are watching the students grow as people, but we also see them grow as assassins as they learn of how to possibly kill their teacher at any open chance they get. It’s a great mix between very well directed action scenes/animation and typical high school activities and issues the students deal with over read more

Berserk, Berserk, Berserk… what more can be said about Berserk? I figured one more review couldn’t hurt.

This is for the Golden Age arc movies released from 2012-2013. I never watched the original anime series nor have I or frankly ever will watch the latest series to be released, but I have come to understand that the movies serve as a bridge between some of the evens in the original anime and the latest anime to air.

Off of first impressions, the anime is beautiful. The art and cinematography are amazing, much better visually than the original anime, which isn’t difficult considering the anime first read more

Monster (Anime) add (All reviews)
Slow, slow, slow, BOOM, slow, slow. There can't be any other way to describe the overall feel of this anime.

This anime is said by so many to be one of the greatest of all time, a must watch, a necessary part of any fan's journey in the anime world. I, however, have trouble understanding how anyone, after sitting through all 74 episodes could consider this such a masterpiece or at least as high of a rating everyone seems to give it.

I enjoy the plot and it is a nice story overall. The realism is felt throughout and the true darkness of people is extremely read more
