Preliminary (4/? chp)
In the 'Firmament', there is an enormous tree that is being treated like a God: people live near it, because the world is no longer nice to the humanity. There is hardly any water to find and finding food is also a huge challenge. In this world, a youth, Kaina, meets a princess, Liliha, who needs to protect her land and people. What danger awaits the princess and will Kaina help Liliha?

This manga is very unique; you will hardly find a story where the world has water shortages, instead of the black gold. It is an open secret that half of the world's population could ...

Mou Ippon! (Manga) add
Preliminary (150/? chp)
Sport is like a drug. If you have never done one and think that being lazy is cool, it is understandable. Some types of sport make you healthier and stronger, training your body. Some, however, train not your body, but your mind and soul. It does not matter what kind of sport you want to start doing, but when you lose, this will change you. You will no longer regard sports as stupid and pointless activity. You will want to change yourself and become better. It will be super frustrating, but this will be the kind of frustration that you will 100% need.

Mixed Feelings
Trigger warning: a 14 year-old teenager falls, tries to fall, in love with an adult woman.

Yofukashi no Uta focuses on a teenager, Kou, who wants to become a vampire, but for this he just needs to fall in love with a vampire. What makes him want become a vampire? Basically, the anime’s main idea is that those who are dissatisfied with how they spend their day cannot fall asleep and because of that, they have insomnia. This is the problem of our protagonist, who meets a vampire named Nazuna. Nazuna looks like she is in her late teens, but she is actually 40; she ...

“Shade is a two faced friend. In the heat of summer, it provides a welcome respite. Yet, in winter's chill, it hides the warming sun” -…

After the COVID impact on the industry, 2022 was one hell of a treat for the anime fans all over the world. So many great titles and among them is a huge surprise of 2022, Summertime Render. The question is, does it have more pros than cons? Let us see.

Plot wise, there is a guy, Shinpei, who investigates the death of a childhood friend. On his way home, he gets a lucky pervert moment, making you think that ...

That is Some Unholy …

Hataraku Maou-sama! aired back in 2013 and there was hardly any need for a new season. I mean, for ‘such a new season.’ And this is not just about some bad animation quality. Yes, it is super bad for 2022 and it just seems like the budget of this anime consists of some pocket change of one of the anime’s staff members. Even though I do not watch anime for animation, it is more of a bonus for me, Hataraku Maou-sama!! just breaks all the laws of logic and sense, because its predecessor was much better; it had a soul, it ...

“Not all those who wander are lost.” - J.R.R. Tolkien.

In my eyes, Made in Abyss: Retsujitsu no Ougonkyou is a pure masterpiece and something that has won my heart. Honestly, I would not mind ending my review after that, because this anime needs no introduction and I do not even need to write 2,000+ words about nothing only to show you how beautiful Made in Abyss: Retsujitsu no Ougonkyou is. No, this anime is not about breathtaking landscapes, music, or great animation. On top of that, it is not an anime about children’s sufferings. Unlike the 1st season, Made in Abyss: Retsujitsu no Ougonkyou ...

“The truth is not always beautiful, nor beautiful words the truth.”

I mean, I, too, can and love using edgy quotes at the beginning of my review, but this is not enough to make my work good. Anyways, one and only thing the new season made me understand was the idea that deep quotes are not enough to make anything sound thought provoking. But before starting, I would like to make some things perfectly clear: a) I loved the first season, it was a very solid 7/10, b) I did not read the novel and do not care about it, because I am reviewing the anime, ...

“If I got rid of my demons, I would lose my angels.” -…

At the end of the 19th century, in the British empire, life was not that easy: death and starvation were everywhere. In order to survive, people were ready for everything: even to sell a soul to a demon. But the true demon is in people’s heart: some people wishes can shock even the most gruesome demon. The Tale of the Outcasts focuses on the great demon Marbas and the blind girl Wisteria, who made a contract with the said demon. The two of them have been taking shelter in a certain small house ...

Engage Kiss (Anime) add
What is Engage Kiss? Engage kiss is a good story, plus fine animation, plus okayish characters, divided by people who have no idea what they are doing (the anime’s staff) and it equals Engage Kiss. Or you can tl;dr it as a ‘yet another title of A-1 that is just not that good.’

The formula for Engage Kiss is very easy and if you are familiar with Darling in the FranXX, you might experience a déjà vu. The anime focuses on a fictional city called ‘Bayron City.’ The key to its success is a new type of fuel and the production of the said fuel ...

“The object of terrorism is terrorism. The object of oppression is oppression. The object of torture is torture. The object of murder is murder. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?” - Eric Arthur Blai.

Lycoris Recoil is a huge surprise of summer 2022. Obviously, you will never guess from the anime’s poster alone what that it truly is about. ‘Another cute girls, do cute things’ kind of an anime, why not?’ This was my mistake and it took me some time to give Lycoris Recoil a try. It was worth it! But you are not here to read my ...
