Kimetsu no Yaiba is so good it kinda reviews itself, if that makes sense. In all honesty, if there's an annual award for 'best anime', if Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon Slayer doesn't get said award, I'll be shocked! Honestly, I can easily compare it to the likes of other Masterpieces such as Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. It's serious that damn good.

Story: 10 - Wanting to turn your sister back into a human after she was demonised isn't exactly original, but the journey the MC takes to achieve this is simply outstanding. It's incredible how much emotion is poured into each scene, and I personally found read more

TL;DR - Hilarious harem anime with some 0 to 100 fetish characters. It's worth watching if you don't mind a typical clueless main protagonist. I'm enjoying it so far - and when the series ends I'll update this review, and see if my stance on it changes.

So, we have another romantic comedy harem anime. There's plenty of them, which is great cause I love the genre! Kawaikereba is a harem anime that seems to give its characters a specific type of fetish-personality. On paper that might sound weird but the anime has done it in a way that is entertaining as all hell!

TL;DR - It has its flaws but it's still good! I enjoy it immensely and can't wait for the next episode. I hope you give it a try!

Here's another one with low ratings and I can see why. I mean, a 6~ rating on MAL isn't TOO bad and I can see why it gets the rating it does. I love it though, personally. A solid 8 from me. I love the Isekai genre - and Arifureta does it quite well. Its biggest mistake, however, is that it seems to cut out a lot of the source material. Things just move way too fast. It read more

TL;DR - Don't drop this anime because of the poor artwork and apparent rip off of other Isekai. It actually gets really good. It's worth watching. I personally enjoyed it immensely.

Did you give up on this anime when you realised it was an amalgamation of just about every other Isekai out there? Or maybe you had enough of it when you saw how piss-poor the backgrounds were. Or maybe even the sound. Or the poor animation.

I almost did. I'm so glad I kept watching. Yeah, this anime does feel like it copied a lot of its content from other Isekai such as Overlord and Konosuba, read more

Been a while since I wrote a review. I've seen a lot of good anime and they were all worth writing reviews for but I suppose I couldn't be bothered.

Anyway, I'll get to it. Liked this series a lot. It felt realistic but was also beautiful, cute, and romantic. However, it didn't push the romance in your face and focused more on the characters' personal lives, which I thought worked really well.

Story - Very Good. The romance between the 45 year old manager and 17 year old employee was interesting and done really well.

Art - Very Good. It had a gentle tone and was read more

Just wanna begin by saying that this anime is so adorable and so emotional!

Story: Can't help but feel emotional about the story setting, one-sided love is always so beautiful, yet sad... Watching the relationships play out in this story just keeps me hooked for the entire run.

Art: The designs are cute as hell. Every facial expression is adorable, so I can't help but want to give the art a high rating. The eyes are cute, and when emotion is intended, the art really helps get that across.

Sound: The music played, especially the OP and Ending themes, are very memorable and I never once skipped read more

I'll start by saying there was a lot of negative news about Fruit of Grisaia that prevented me from watching it for a very long time. Well, after watching it finally, I'm only able to reinforce in my mind the idea that OTHER PEOPLE'S opinions should be taken with a grain of salt. That's a bit hypocritical since I'm writing a positive review for this anime, so hopefully, if you're reading this, you don't always think for yourself and will heed another person's thoughts. I hope you do this time.

I think Fruit of Grisaia could easily be compared to anime such as Angel Beats and read more

Before watching Your Lie In April, I didn't ever have any interest in anime where the focal point was music. So, with how much I enjoyed that anime, I decided to give Nodame Cantabile a try. From the very first episode, I knew I was going to enjoy it.

Story: As the story mostly revolves around Chiaki's amazing talent as a pianist, violinist, and ultimately his goal of becoming a conductor, I think it was really great to watch his development into the man he wants to become. Nodame, the woman with a wild style of playing the piano is the only person who seems capable read more

It took me a long, LONG time to get around to watching this series. 47 episodes for a romance series I suppose made me hesitant... But once I started watching, I just couldn't stop. I laughed, cried, and felt angry at all the times the writers intended.

Story: The story was amazing. Truth be told I started watching because I was hoping for girl x girl sort of romance, but that didn't seem to be the case. But, the romance found in this show was incredibly realistic and heavy, so if you're a romance fan, you're sure to cry.

Art: As expected of Madhouse, the art is read more

I think this is as Slice of Life as Slice of Life gets.

Story: Well... At a glance, it doesn't feel like there's a story element here... But I think there is. And it's quite nice.

Art: It's ... fine. The drawings add to the comedy at times. There's no groundbreaking action, but that's just perfect for what this show is.

Sound: I find the opening theme really enjoyable. One of the characters' voices is especially entertaining as well.

Characters: There's a good bit of diversity among the characters.

Enjoyment: It's an easy going, funny anime with tidbits of drama here and there.

Overall it was a fun watch. read more
