I love watching anime. I have a deep passion for watching, discussing and critiquing anime. Nuancing my opinions, sharing love for shows and discovering new experiences is what keeps me continuing to watch anime. It is a passion that is hard to really express to people who don’t watch anime, but I sure try to share that deep-rooted passion with others who are willing to listen. I can see this sort of passion in Yuru Camp.

Yuru Camp is a show that means a lot to me. Back in 2018 Yuru Camp was one of the first anime that I watched and I loved every second read more

Ex-Arm (Anime) add (All reviews)
There are so many wonderful ways to screw up an anime, and in the course of my time watching anime I have seen a lot of those ways. From anime that are completely ruined by weird directional choices, to anime that completely misunderstand how to tackle a subject, to the anime that are just plain boring. But Ex-Arm is new to me, because this anime was destined for failure since these words were uttered out: “What if we hired a director that has no experience in anime to make an anime?”

Forgiveness is overrated. You have the big bad villain that killed the whole town, wanted the world turn into darkness and fucked the protagonists wife and the protagonist doesn't kill villain because "that would make him just as bad as him". And everyone is fine after it all and go on to get some mcdonalds or something. It is boring to see a peaceful end to everything. That's why I am happy Yuukoku no Moriarty exists.

The anime is an adaptation of the classic Sherlock Holmes story we all know, but this time it focuses on the antagonist. James Moriarty is a professor in good ol' read more

I have a soft spot for short anime. Even if they don't give mindblowing experiences, they can be fun times that are quickly done so they don't waste your time. Joshikausei is an example of a short anime I really enjoyed.

Sadly, Ninja Collection isn't a good experience.

The anime follows a group of ninjas (I guess?) that defeat evil spirits (I think?) in an episodic fashion. The plot is incredibly simple but it is still confusing as hell due to a lack of explanations and just weird events in general. In the first anime a fog is turning students into zombies, the read more

Most of the time you can see what is genius and what is stupid, but when you go to the extreme of both terms you get a sort of horshe shoe theory which makes it incredibly difficult to seperate these two terms. I thought about this while I was watching The Misfit of Demon King Academy, one of the hottest anime this season. For the last couple of weeks I have trying to figure out if this anime is a genius work of art or genuine stupidity, and I still havent figure out in what camp it falls.

But lets first talk about read more

Short anime aren't apreciated enough. Most people shrug them of as time wasters when in actuality they can be sometimes better then full 24 minutes 12 episodes long series. Given, lots of these short anime are either kids shows, softcore porn meant for women or Isekai Quartet, but there are so many gems that people not check out because they are so short. This is one of those gems.

This anime is about a grandpa pretending to be old and fragile just to charm his wife. That's it. It is short, easy to understand and has lots of potential.

This anime is pretty darn cute. read more

So looking I was looking through all the anime that was airing this season, and this anime caught my eyes. As the time of writing this is rated as an 4.90. It is the worst rated anime this season and I wanted to check out how bad this was.

But after binging the first five episodes, I have come to the conclusion that this anime is actually quite decent.

This short anime is about a little girl named Tatami moving to tokyo and getting used to the city. Also she is ghost and all her friends are other horror creatures. Every episode has a runtime of 4 read more

Oh yeah, Tsugumomo! I recently watched this in preparation for this season and the first season surprised me a lot. It was a really fun mish mash of ecchi, comedy and action, featuring enjoyable characters and a really solid production. It wasn't anything mindblowing but it was a fun time nonetheless.

Now, after three years and a succesful crowdfund of an uncensored OVA the second season is here, and it is just more Tsugumomo.

Is there anything different from the first season? Well for one, the production values are downgraded. The first season had a vibrant color palet with suprisingly good action scenes that would impress read more

Fun is a subjective term. While it can mean a variety of things, it is generally agreed upon that describing something as fun is a positive thing. With that said, My Next Life as a Villainess is the definition of fun.

The story is anothing isekai type story, but with a genuinely interesting twist. Katarina gets reïncarnated in a Otome game where she becomes the villain. She played this Otome game a ton in her previous life and she knows that with every ending in the game she is either killed or exiled. So in this isekai world she does everything in her power to change read more

Oh yeah, Jashin-chan! I remember this! I watched this anime while it was airing back in July of 2018. It was pretty fun. I even made a review of it. After the studio sold enough DVD boxes they announced a season 2 and I remember being excited for it. After one and a half year of more anime and more personal problems I was actually scared to watch this anime. It had been so long since the first season and I thought my taste would have changed so much from back then that I would have not liked this anime anymore.

Well, after Crunchyroll dropped read more
