Preliminary
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

Pupa (Anime) add (All reviews)
There comes a time when something becomes so bad that not even the good aspects can salvage it, and this is certainly the case with Pupa. From repetitive events to scenes that almost made me vomit, Pupa does everything it can to make you hate it. If that was your intention Pupa, you certainly did a great job in doing so.

If I had to describe Pupa’s “story” (if you can even call it that) in two words, it would be “dreadful mess”. It’s basically just torture porn. Utsutsu, our main male character, tries to save his sister Yume from becoming a monster due to some read more

This is it. The greatest anime of all time has been found. No joke, this is amazing, let me tell you why.

At first glance, Gakuen Handsome may look like just another shitty 3 minute per episode short, but the themes it explores are so insightful. There's something about Gakuen Handsome that stands out among similar titles, and that thing is the vibrant characters. They all have something very peculiar about them that shines so bright, yet is hidden beneath the surface waiting to be discovered.

Before I get too ahead of myself, let me talk about the characters. We have our main character, Faceless-kun who just read more

Demi-chan wa Kataritai (or Demi-chan as I will be calling it from now on) is at its core a pleasure. Ranging from interesting characters to funny comedy, Demi-chan delivers for the most part an interesting take on the comedy genre. While Demi-chan does not have a lot of profound meaning or underlying plot, what it does offer is a delightful 12-episode fun ride sprinkled with some deeper moments here and there.

Demi-chan revolves around three half-human, half-monster “demis”, Kyouko Machi, Hikari Takanashi, Yuki Kusakabe, and their high school biology teacher Tetsuo Takahashi. Along the way, a fourth demi by the name Sakie Satou appears. Although this read more

Just when you think you've seen everything, this show comes along.

If you didn't already know, this is a 1 minute anime about Donald Trump rapping, which to be frank is hilarious and horrifying at the same time.
Since the episodes are only 1 minute long, basically nothing of importance happens, unless you consider Donald Trump rapping to be very important.

The animation style reminds me of shows like Onara Gorou and Andou of the Forest, which are certainly unique, but nothing spectacular.

This is the weirdest thing I've seen in a while, and I can't wait to see what more ridiculous things will happen.

No matter if you think read more

Going into this show, I had no real expectations for it. From the get go, Minami-ke looked like your typical slice of life/comedy anime. However, after watching all 13 episodes in one sitting, I realized something. I realized that Minami-ke does what many other similar titles don't; and that is having characters that aren't one dimensional or are there just to fulfill a trope or stereotype.

Minami-ke is about the life of three sisters, Chiaki, Kana and Haruka, and their daily activities as they grow up. Chiaki is the youngest of the three sisters, being in elementary school. Despite being the youngest of the three, she read more
