Occasionally you start to wonder whether everything that comes out today is just a rehash of something older, and to some degree, this is true. Most ideas that exist have already been used in the past, so for shows to break the mold they either have to do something very well, or do something niche enough to where people don't notice it as much. Anima Yell follows the latter by using cheerleading as the focus point, something I'm sure many of you haven't seen much of before. However, is a niche idea enough to make it stand out? Let's take a look.

Grab your tent, some marshmallows, and get ready for more camping with Yuru Camp!

These specials are very similar to the main series, but shorter, first 2 episodes are about 5 minutes long and the 3rd one is 12. They serve as simple add-ons to the main series, if you will. Each episode is about them hanging out, either that be by camping, or playing on the beach to mention a few.

Not much has changed about the characters, they're the same as they were in the main series. Production values are still good, the girls are cute and we've got some of the nice OST from read more

We are once again blessed with more catgirls, this time it's a christmas party!

Long story short, if you were expecting some fanservice or H-scenes, then turn away now, this is not the ONA for you, however, if you're looking for a cute, fluffy ONA filled with adorable catgirls and have 25 minutes to spare, then take a seat.

Once again, we return to our family of catgirls, who look just as cute as ever. Set half a year before our main character Kashou opens the patisserie, this ONA depicts them at a younger and more delicate stage than before. Besides from being a bit younger, their read more

This'll be a quick one.

Have you ever wanted to meet an incredibly busty angel? Yes? Well, I've got the perfect anime for you! Set in the same timeline as Sin; Nanatsu no Taizai, Nanatsu no Bitoku is the ecchi successor we didn't exactly need, but got anyway. The whole point of this show is to shove as much fanservice in your face as possible, and if that's what you want then by all means watch this. There isn't really a story, it's just exclusively about the fanservice, which isn’t too shabby, there's even uncensored nipples, although there are better alternatives out there. For what it’s read more

I…think you forgot to add a comedy tag, MAL.

Ito Junji: Collection, despite what the MAL score might lead you to believe is actually decent. Based on the collection of manga of the same name, these stories depict various abnormal occurrences and happenings. From what I know, there isn’t a pattern as to which stories were picked.

Ito Junji surprised me in many ways, one of those being the creepy atmosphere. Many of the stories are quite unnerving at times, especially with how crude the artstyle is. The fact that the overall art looks quite bad, as in the character models aren’t anything special and the backgrounds read more

Only four episodes of Dynamic Chord are out at this time, but I can already tell how dreadful it will be. Barring a few other titles like Black Clover, this is one of the worst anime I’ve seen this season, and that’s saying a lot. When the best part of your anime is a cat with sunglasses (was only on screen for about 5 seconds in the first episode), you know you’ve fucked up somewhere. I won’t make this too long since this show honestly isn’t worth talking about in length.

So…this show is about music, right? Then why is almost all of the runtime spent read more

Girlfriends, boyfriends, I’m sure most of us have wanted one at some point, or already have one. For those of us who don’t have one, do not fret, Hajimete no Gal is here to indulge you into the experience of having a girlfriend or boyfriend, whether you want it or not. This will not be a painless experience however, so strap yourself in and prepare for the worst, and I mean it.

Imagine this: You are just an ordinary guy, and your classmates forced you to ask a hot girl in your class to date you. After she almost turns you down like the loser you read more

Nami (Anime) add (All reviews)
"What is anime?" A question many have asked and answered, but what is it really? Today I will answer that question, as well as give some insight as to why you should (not) watch Nami, which ironically enough can't be considered anime. Without further ado, let's begin!

Anime as we know it today is a visual storytelling medium. Consisting of multiple key factors like story, art, animation, characters and sound, the sky's the limit for what can be produced. That does not come without its shortcomings though, whether it's bad directing, faults in the story, jarring art/animation or poor sound, there's always something read more

Seeing as this is an ongoing manga (there are only 13 chapters available at the time of this review), I will only be covering it up to that point.

"Aharen-san wa Hakarenai", or "Aharen Is Indecipherable", is a short length comedy about a girl who can't seem to be understood. I know this doesn't sound very interesting on its own, but so far it's really funny and charming. It reminds me a lot of "Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge", or "Tanaka-kun Is Always Listless" in the sense that the characters act in a similar way. Instead of revolving around Tanaka being lazy and Ohta reacting to it, read more

Swimsuits; perhaps you’ve heard someone mention these, or maybe you’ve seen one yourself. Whatever the case, you’ll certainly know everything about them after watching this special. Most commonly found in the summer, they’re the hottest of the hot when it comes to summer attire. You may be wondering, “Well, how does this pertain to the One Room special?” and to some degree you would be correct in your assessment. However, this special is all about exactly that; swimsuits. You’ve got your classic school swimsuit, your extremely revealing swimsuit and your regular swimsuit, all tied together by the presence of our three female “protagonists”.

Logically speaking, you read more
