I feel so much potential was wasted on this one, it is kind of frustrating.

The anime has nearly all ingredients to make a great shounen: first a good plot concept, then there's youkai and humans and their various relations, yakuza styled youkai syndicate, great art style, nice VAs and BGM, enough space to develop the plot and characters and a great deal of Shinto concepts and ideas....

And then...enter THE characters...

For me personally, the characters ruined a fair bit of what otherwise could've easily been an 8/10 shounen. While I can ignore unrealistic age and pretend they are older than what they're supposed to be in read more

91 Days (Anime) add (All reviews)
Well that was a surprise, 91 days literally destroyed all of my expectations. 8.5 from me

This anime was like the freshly baked bread, still warm, straight out the bakery as compared to the one you usually get in the store, a rare treat.

I'll start with the most important - Story: It's a simple enough idea that you might think will follow a linear pattern, however, as the anime progresses the plot starts deviating from that line, it involves many characters and aspects, it takes unexpected turns and the more you watch the more confused you get and yet the more you actually follow read more

I was really torn between 6 and 7 for this one but ultimately decided for all the laugh to give it an extra point.

This anime is something you have already seen about hundred times and has little surprises to present. It actually started fresh, promising the viewer to show something slightly different from what already exists but alas, it turned into the typical harem/ slice of life. It included almost all stereotypes one can think of. The Cultural festival, the beach episode, the scary episode, of course all the romance and drama, fair share of misunderstandings and fights in the group of protagonists etc etc read more

Ling Qi (Anime) add (All reviews)
Beware: This is a shounen-ai! And a good one on top of that!

I thought I'd start with that as the genre is not listed on MAL.

As probably most of you have figured out by the name, this is a Chinese animation, the second in my life, but I have to say definitely not the last one!

Overall Ling Qi is a beautifully drawn anime with a deeper story from what you'd expect of 20 short episodes. It engages the viewer straight from episode 1 with its perfectly proportioned combination of sweet humour, action, art, BGM, few parodies of other anime and unexpected development.

A lovely but quite overrated film I dare say, BUT still a pleasant composition.

While there were many positive things about it, such as the art, bits of action, characters, just to name a few, it lacked the most important thing for a film - namely, a plot. There was a promising, although slow start, then it proceeded to the main point or idea, then all of a sudden it was all over, no satisfying end, explanation or development whatsoever. The idea is so simple that it could have been squeezed into a 30-40 min episode.

That said, I did enjoy watching it, slow pace, virtually no read more

There is so much I want to say about this, I can hardly figure out where to start from. I should perhaps start by noting that if you're in solely for the shounen-ai part, like I was, you might as well want to reconsider as there is literally nothing to satisfy your expectations...

Uragiri wa boku no namae wo shitteiru(Betrayal knows my name) - a flashy name and even flashier cover picture, with gorgeous young men, a real feast for the eyes, it makes you want to believe the contents will justify or perhaps correspond to the cover, alas it doesn't. Why is that?
