In the year 2023, it is widely acknowledged that Makoto Shinkai is the most successful anime film director of the past decade. With the golden age of Studio Ghibli having come to an end, titles such as Your Name, Weathering With You, and now Suzume have come close to breaking all of Japan's box office records. Therefore, each time Shinkai releases a new film in theaters, the audience sets the bar high. They are right to do so, as Suzume is a stunning film that is full of substance, allegories, and emotions.

Following his favorite motifs, Shinkai creates another work with a detailed art style and ...

If you think anime shows are about beautiful or flashy visuals, then do not try to watch Human Bug Daigaku. However, it is not always about visuals. I have always disagreed with people that put animation over anything else; actually, I think what makes an anime good is “that something”. Human Bug Daigaku has many “somethings”. It is a show with plain art and almost non-existent animation, that does not take itself seriously when that is not needed. But it knows how to entertain its audience very well and includes comedy – which I find hilarious - combined with a well-built, intriguing mystery. Also, it ...

Ao Ashi (Anime) add
Sports anime might be fundamentally similar to each other, but the writing and deliverance can differ a lot. Ao Ashi creates a world full of lessons and hardships, in both football and life. And like most sports anime, it doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of football to appreciate it. The characters are there, the build-up is there, and the emotions are there too, like in any other good anime. The main purpose of this review is to express how well Ao Ashi excels in certain things compared to other sports anime, what it lacks compared to them, and how good it really is overall.

The ...

This is the kind of Pokémon anime we need!

Since its innovative start in 1996 with Red and Green, Pokémon has made huge success as a franchise, all over the world, with its captivating adventure games. It was 1997 when the anime adaptation became a thing, and Japanese studios have always made adaptations of every Pokémon game created ever since. The idea was good, but to most fans - including me - the anime adaptation was not what they wanted, it was childish and it felt like it was dragging too long for nothing. I am not writing this review to express my dislike towards the ...

Tanoshii Muumin Ikka is a 1990 TV show that is mostly aimed at kids - but not only. It is one of the best animated works in existence, and that is because it is created by a combination of admirable people. Tove Jansson, the original creator of the Moomin books; Akira Miyazaki, the famous World Masterpiece Theater scriptwriter; an exceptional voice acting cast; great animators. Many episodes are just playful and childish, but you will be astonished by how meaningful some of them might be, or relatable for adults.

The first thing that must be mentioned about this series is Tove Jansson’s philosophical approach and the ...

Usually, I tend to watch anime for their plot and characters. Cossette no Shouzou is the perfect example of a show that does not need them to succeed. It may follow a main story, but what's most important is its artistic ingeniousness. And I do not mean its art or animation; I mean everything about this fictional work. The music, the animation techniques, the simple story with its thrilling portrayal, and last but not least; the fact that it revolves around art itself. Truly, Cossette no Shouzou is not an easy watch for everyone. It's a niche piece of art, full ...

Monster (Anime) add
Mixed Feelings


Naoki Urasawa's Monster is undoubtedly one of the greatest and most famous Japanese works of fiction ever created. Its captivating premise, along with the amazing directing done by Madhouse, make it one of the most interesting and addictive series to watch; loved and respected by most anime and non-anime enthusiasts. 74 episodes are usually hard to finish without getting bored at times, but when it comes to Monster, it is the kind of story that will make you sit on your ...

Before I start with my review, I want to congratulate ufotable for their wise choice. By making an anime adaptation of Kimetsu no Yaiba, the studio gained:
-a big audience of anime newbies who get surprised by great animation and overlook bad writing
-an even bigger audience of teenagers who enjoy well-animated fights and drama, even if it is nonsensical and forced

Not that it is important - because we are the minority - but ufotable lost us fans who look for more than that in a TV series. We want a plot that takes itself seriously and a good character writing. Animation comes second ...

Following its 2019 TV debut, Lord El-Melloi II Case Files is back to surprise us with a Christmas special episode / short movie. It's not about the festive day itself; it's more of a Christmas gift to Type-Moon fans. So if you're reading this and are not fond of the Type Moon universe / Nasuverse or do not really care about Waver and the Clock Tower, don't bother watching this amazing episode. On the other hand, fellow FZ and KnK fans... have fun!

The story unfolds in the Clock Tower and has a strong nostalgic vibe. Not in the same fashion as ...

Preliminary (6/23 eps)
Perfection is and will always be subjective; but to me, the beginning of Ousama Ranking is pure perfection. That’s the reason I’ve written my first preliminary review, just to tell you guys and to remember how amazing my first experience with Ousama Ranking was. Please note that my score may change in the future, but I am reviewing episodes 1 to 6 – and it’s a solid 10.

For starters, let me make it clear; Ousama Ranking takes place in a medieval looking world and looks like a fairytale. It is full of colour; green, blue, yellow, light brown. I think it’s adorable-looking and what we’d ...
