It's frustrating when something gets a lot of support, especially financial support, and builds up everyone's expectations just to end up being a huge and shallow disappointment. I get that. But to me, it's a lot more frustrating to see what seems to be the majority of people miss the point and hate something that frankly doesn't deserve that level of hate. This is the case with Under the Dog.

First, let me briefly address the backstory of this OVA's development. To oversimplify things, Under the Dog was an idea from the 90's for a 26 episode anime that was never made. Certain people were read more

I've noticed that a lot of reviews of this anime will likely lead you to believe that Koutetsujou no Kabaneri is some kind of terrible show that isn't worth anyone's time. I'm here to disagree, because I find it overall pretty fun to watch, and I think that's all it needs to be.

Based on the hype for this anime as it was airing, I suppose most people would come in with expectations that it would either be "the next Attack on Titan" or else just generally good enough to be anime of the season. Well it's neither of these things, so discard those thoughts now read more

When this anime first started airing, I immediately caught on to how depressingly stale it is. It is utterly lacking in any distinct flavor, honestly every aspect of this show is pretty generic, but done worse than a lot of other similarly generic shows. I made a promise to myself that when it finished airing, no matter what I thought of it, I'd write a review of it starting with the sentence "all right motherfuckers, I hope you're ready for bread." Unfortunately, after enduring 13 weeks of this, that joke isn't funny to me any more (and it wasn't funny anyway, I just tend to read more

Here's a short and pointless review, but Teekyuu is also short and pointless so it should fit.

It hurts to try to follow along with Teekyuu, let alone think about it on any critical level. The jokes fly by at supersonic speeds and the actual quality of the humor fluctuates dramatically on a second-by-second basis. Having watched through all 7 seasons of Teekyuu thus far, I've learned to just accept it for what it is, but to make it this far you'll have to train your brain to turn itself off, and your mileage may vary depending on how much condensed randomness you can physically read more

This is the best bad anime I've seen in a while. It isn't good. It doesn't really stand out. Due to Momo Kyun Sword's rather shallow exterior and interior, there isn't really a good way to write a long review about it without some filler. Therefore, I'm going to keep this review short. But I'm going to try to recommend that you watch it, despite the low score that I think it deserves.

Here's the story: Follow Momoko, her boobs, and her 3 animal friends as they travel Japan, meeting more boobs and changing costumes along the way. Beware of predictable plot twists and cliches. read more

The subject of time travel is no stranger to the world of anime, so it takes a lot of work to make a time travel story stand out. For Steins;Gate, that hard work paid off. This is by far the best-executed time travel story that I've ever seen in my experience with anime, and if you haven't seen it yet, you're definitely missing out!

Story: 10
The story revolves around the antics of Rintarou Okabe, a self-proclaimed mad scientist that goes by the alias "Hououin Kyouma," as he essentially dicks around with time and subsequently deals with the consequences of his selfish actions. I'll be completely honest read more

*Disclaimer: I've already written a detailed review of Prince of Tennis. This is more or less an analysis of New Prince of Tennis, as it pertains to the original anime, so it's less structured and doesn't go in-depth on anything that isn't being compared to the original Prince of Tennis.*

To say that I had high hopes for New Prince of Tennis would be, you guessed it, an understatement. The original Prince of Tennis was not just an anime, it was THE anime, to me. It was that enigma that, despite seeming to be "just a sports anime," managed to capture my heart and rose above read more

I would like to preface this by saying that I've never even heard of Bamboo Blade, let alone watched it.

Bamboo Blade is a comedy that comes around only once every very often. Let's face it, you've seen all of this before: Broke teacher looking for a quick fix to his problem, lovable cast of female characters who just want to train in kendo and have a fun time, all wrapped up in a comedy school setting. By no means is it anything new in the anime world, but it is still a wholly charming and fun little show.

Story:
Honestly, the story isn't all that fantastic. It's read more

My friends think I'm weird for liking a sports anime. "What's the big deal, it's just sports! You can watch real people play tennis on TV instead!" What they don't realize is that Prince of Tennis, as well as many other sports anime, is about much more than just the game. In fact, as far as Prince of Tennis goes, there is far more time spent outside of the court, developing characters and improving the viewers' bond with the anime.

The story's a real shocker here (not). Young prodigy joins a famous tennis school aiming for the national championship, overcoming all sorts of seemingly-impossible challenges and read more

If I had to sum up all of Nichijou in one word, it would be "beautiful." As a slice of life, this anime can't be for everyone, as most people like to have a story that is actually driven by the plot. But even if you aren't into slice of life anime, there is something in Nichijou for everyone to enjoy.

Story:
Every episode is a series of semi-random "moments" in each of the characters' lives. As far as an actual storyline goes, there is no distinct beginning or end to Nichijou. No goal, no real conflict - as to be expected of a slice of life, read more
