“Time flies by” is a very common and relatable statement that we like to spout occasionally, but ever so often when you're anticipating something, it flashes by without notice.
It's easy to forget that Tensura season 1 air fall 2018, even when it feels like yesterday, that was 3 years ago as of writing this (2021), and the second season being announced as early as the first one ended did not help either.

After the massive BOOM Tensura season one had in the Anime community, a lot of people turned back to Isekai Anime hoping for similar quality content that Tensura spoiled us with, the craving was read more

This was an undertaking.
For so long have I put down watching this movie waiting for the “right time”, until it totally faded out of my mind only for me to notice the dust it accumulated over the years on my queue list, but here I am, back for more horrifying Goblin slaying.

I'd say it is extremely situational, had I watched this the moment it came out, while the Anime was still fresh and new, I might have hated it way more, for the first 30 to 40 minutes is nothing but recap for the first season, same reused scenes with nothing new to them, that read more

I'm as strange to Asian culture as the next weeb, on my first watch of the movie, I did wonder and question several directory decisions but until I read some reviews and schemed over some snippets from the movie I finally started grasping the genius behind what some would call, a poor man Shinkai's movie.

The movie goes scrolls through an anthology consisting of the transition into adulthood from several points of view, almost like an autobiography that narrates itself.

The first story titled “Sunny Breakfast” mirrors Xiao Ming, a young adult who reminisces on his life decisions as he desperately searches for the perfect bowl of read more

A lot of people know Makoto Shinkai for masterpieces like Garden of Words, Your Name, and Weathering With You, but only the OGs know him for 5 Centimeters Per Seconds and his other earlier works. It was the latter that elevated his status and put him in the mainstream field so much so that people started attributing the cliché childhood love stories to him and his legacy.

Set in early 2000, at a time where technology was nowhere as accessible and as widespread, writing letters was still relevant and communication over long distances was still a hit or miss.

Byousoku 5 Centimeters is an anthology that accompanies read more

Calling Kimi no Na wa a masterpiece or something else is not even a valid argument nowadays, more than ever it's been stamped, solidified, and rendered into a fact that many people like to forget and disregard, it's a movie that got countless people into Anime and served as the neutral introduction to many, many fans of the medium. It broke records, hearts, and top-10 lists more than anyone can count and even today it remains as high ground as day one.

- Story (9/10):
Probably among all of Shinkai's works, this one has the most fleshed out and interesting plot by far. There is something very read more

I remember watching this years ago, impressions were not that good, and thus, I labeled this movie as a try-hard failure of Makoto Shinkai, watching it in 420p did not help either, the years passed and my impression of it was that of the worst, until I randomly had the urge to watch it again, see how much my taste in Anime has grown, perhaps I've been harsh on the movie and didn't see it as the greatness it was, or maybe, it was too early for me as a person, at the time, I related to Takao (the highschooler dude) more because I was read more

Preliminary
Name a better duo, Makoto Shinkai movies, and mineral water commercials. At this point you'd think they bottle people's tears caused by the movies in question and put them up for sale, there has got to be a co-relation with this, one before with 5 centimeters per second and Your Name, and again with Weathering With You.

There is a huge collection of related commercials for this big-budget movie, the reuse of the same vers from the main theme can grow stale and repetitive, the two main characters used as the mascots here, for a movie with a huge name to it, it was rather uncreative read more

Do you know that distinctive voice you're left with after finishing a great show that you enjoyed all through and through? It's then that you realize that show is special, but for it to do it not once, but twice? Now that's an impactful piece of media.
When I first watch the first season more than a year ago, I thought it couldn't get any more empty inside, fast forward now, after finishing the second season, I don't think I'm gonna survive this one.

Story (9/10):
I'm not grading a critical marvel here, it's no Attack on Titan, after all, it's a harem show, so the story means read more

You'd think some of the best arcs in any show tend to be redemption arcs, but the fact of the matter, Black Clover's entire run was a redemption arc on display. What started as ear torture that everyone would make fun of and label as Shounen trash came overboard and forced everyone to eat their words, becoming their very own favorite Anime of all time and it is still far from finished.
What was announced first as a 13 episodes series quickly became 51 and kept on increasing its deadline until it inevitably concluded on a magnificent run of 170 episodes in more than a 3 read more

Attack on Titan, it feels like everyone is pointing a gun at you the moment you decide to write a review about the show and especially now that the first half of the final season started airing. Attack on Titan has been the talk of the hour for years, but now, more than ever. So Here's one that won't offend anyone.

Story (9/10):
Attack on Titan might have started its fame because of the action and hype-driven battles, but that shifted bit by bit till it became the classic literal masterpiece that everyone likes to claim it to be.
The final season started from the get-go on a read more
