Doga Kobo might not be the absolute biggest name in the anime industry but if there is one thing they have truly made a name for themselves for, then it is their aptitude at making moe comedies. With an repertoire including the likes of Himouto Umaru-chan, New Game and of course the legendary Yuru Yuri among others, this is truly the studio's specialty. Adding to this lineup, this season we now have Gabriel DropOut, which once again showcases just how to make this genre shine at its very brightest.

Gabriel DropOut can briefly be described as role-reversed angels and demons turned moe. The story mainly follows read more

Fuuka (Anime) add (All reviews)
Anime original adaptations have always been a heavily debated subject within the anime community.
In some cases it has resulted in a far superior product than its source material, like with Usagi Drop.
In other cases it has downright split the franchise's fan base in half, like with Fullmetal Alchemist 2003.
And yet in other cases still it has been widely considered to have been a simply terrible decision, like with Akame ga Kill.
Whatever your stance on those particular series may be, I think most of us can at least agree on the fact that going heavily anime original instead of faithfully following the source material is very read more

Masamune-kun no Revenge is another one of those anime which sounds quite interesting on paper, but never comes anywhere close to reaching up to its own potential. What could have been an intriguing story about a man's almost lifelong quest for vengeance through devoted self-improvement and utilization of deceit against the girl who made his childhood a living hell instead ended up being nothing more than a cliché, predictable and rather generic romcom. Ultimately, it only leaves you thinking about what it could have been.

In the distant past, Makabe Masamune was a fat kid who found himself being a victim of bullying from numerous other read more

Do you need more Ayayas in your life? Have you been suffering from "Desu!" abstinence for the last two years? Would you like to charge up your blondie power meter? Then the solution is simple.

I will keep this brief since you should already know all about this show from the first two seasons of it. Pretty Days is essentially a 50-minute movie of Kiniro Mosaic taking place during a school festival. The film is divided into two parts: one which covers the events of the festival itself where Shino is tasked with scriptwriting and providing costumes for a stage play, and one which tells a read more

I am finding myself with some rather mixed feelings after finally finishing this manga. The To LOVE-Ru franchise has now lasted over a decade, and for about half of that time it has been the flagship of the ecchi harem genre. You would think that such a famous, popular and lengthy series would at least be able to deliver a proper resolution upon finally concluding, but in this case not even 36 volumes was enough it seems, as for the second time in the series' history, we now find ourselves in desperate need of a continuation. The first time our prayers were answered when the read more

Flip Flappers is the textbook definition of a hidden gem. A short, artistic original anime by a relatively unknown studio, and also an anime which is quite difficult to explain. This is partially because of its symbolic themes, but also because the execution itself is very unorthodox. It is like the anime equivalent of an LSD trip; something I can only describe as a crossover of FLCL and Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita. But somehow, Studio 3Hz actually made it work, resulting in what I would probably have to consider my favorite anime of Fall 2016.

The story follows two girls who meet each other by coincidence: read more

If you ever have worshipped an ass
You would know it's a feminine mass
But did you ever know
That it's not just for show
There is more to it than just its class

See, the butt can be used as a tool
As a weapon to wield in a school
Where they learn the skill tree
Known as asstronomy
And are taught how to use it to duel

But let us not forget 'bout the breasts
You know, those lovely mounds on girls' chests
As I'm sure you can tell
They can use those as well
To surpass all different kinds of tests

So these ultimate weapons of war
They will clash like never seen before
And the last girl to read more

The idea of putting moe girls in a competitive environment is not anything new to the world of anime. It is something which has been pulled off with great success in the past in shows like Saki for example, and in general I think it adds a nice touch to the otherwise somewhat formulaic sports genre of anime. Following a similar idea, Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume is a surprisingly engaging series which keeps you coming back for more. However, although it exceeds expectations in some areas, it also comes across as rather frustrating or awkward in others. It is the kind of show which I read more

Given the monumental amount of hype that Haikyuu seems to have within its own fan base, I hope that this review will not come across as more negative than I intended it to, so I would just like to start by saying that Haikyuu is for sure one of the better traditional sports anime I have seen, but even so it is still far from perfect.

This third season picks up right where the last one left off, throwing us right into the Spring Tournament regional finals between Karasuno and Shiratorizawa. And that is pretty much the entirety of what this season is about as it read more

Rewrite (Anime) add (All reviews)
Sometimes I can't help but wonder why certain things have to be animated in the first place.

Already back when it was first announced that Rewrite was going to be adapted, I was getting some very mixed feelings. On one hand I was happy that one of my all-time favorite visual novels was finally getting an anime against my expectations, but on the other hand I also knew that making a good adaptation out of it would be incredibly difficult. This is partially because the visual novel is extraordinarily long and partially because all of its routes directly contradict each other and therefore wouldn't make much read more
