“It’s not about whether I can, I have to do it!” – Megumi Fushiguro...and also me steeling myself to post a critical review on this beloved anime.

Jujutsu Kaisen is the latest shounen to gain a surge of popularity and get invited to join the mainstream table of the true anime titans, probably taking a seat right next to Demon Slayer. And I can say with certainty that this is primarily because of Studio Mappa's admirable dedication to making this show, particularly the fight scenes, look breathtakingly good. But here's the age old question: Does fantastic animation trump average writing?

Yeah, no. Heh, sorry to be read more

A butchered adaptation, neglecting to include fan favorite characters from the manga and removing entire arcs, complete and utter disregard of the great tone and atmosphere that was so carefully crafted in the first season, and rushing a once engaging story to high hell to make it a sloppy mess.

This is horror. This is The Promised Neverland Season Two. And it's frickin brilliant.

Now you may be sitting in your comfy chair, mouth agape in shock, and asking yourself "Is this guy quite possibly insane?" Probably. But I also had a revelation to something that you don't know...yet. But that's ok. I'm here to enlighten read more

Quintessential Quintuplets Quietly returns with a Quaint little sequel. Queerly enough, it didn't seem to garner too much attention, though that could possibly be due to the popularity and notoriety of several of the anime it's airing alongside sort of pushing it out of the spotlight. Or perhaps it's because a Quite common complaint people give about this show is that it's "generic". And you know what? They're right. But Quizzically, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Despite having several themes and tropes in common with similar types of shows, along with having a pretty simplistic narrative that follows a typical romcom formula, Quintessential Quintuplets read more

Let's see if I can make it through this review without dying and having to restart from 0. Speaking of that particular number, you know what else gets a 0? This season of Re:Zero, except add a 1 in front of it and BOOM! 10/10 baby. Haha, get it? It's a number joke! If you like that, be sure to SMASH that helpful button like Garfiel SMASHED Elsa, if ya know what I mean~...HellLyter was killed by his embarrassment, awful taste in comedy, and desire for pitiful likes. How greedy.

Damn, this is going to be harder than I thought...

Alright, reset time, lemme start over. read more

This is isekai. Not the plethora of cheaply produced and poorly written knockoffs that we seem to get every single season that feature a protagonist getting transported to another world but do literally nothing in terms of plot progression, character development, and more. Mushoku Tensei steps up to the plate to demonstrate how to effectively utilize this overused genre, and it's about damn time!

Which is why it's a shame that it's getting so much negative attention simply because of the perverted nature of the protagonist Rudeus. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me, but I'll get into my thoughts on that a little later. Get excited read more

Anime touting a gimmick always worry me. They throw in these attention grabbers in an attempt to say "Hey look! I boast something different than those other shows of the same genre and concept as me, come and watch!" But they often end up being entirely one dimensional because they solely revovolve around that one singular idea. Then the author realizes that they actually need more than a unique shtick to write a story and fail to craft an engaging narrative filled with expressive characters to support it. Whoops!

I'm worried because Horimiya so far feels like yet another example of this for the RomCom genre. read more

Behold, the chosen one has returned after the prophesied 6 years to grace the anime medium with his presence. The one true prophet of Kirito has arrived to show off his epic protagonist powers. He has been called many scary names, such as "Mahesvara, Demon of Okinawa, GOD of Destruction, and Onii-sama” Men fear him. Women, especially his sister mind you, want to bear his children. He hath no fear of silly trivialities such as character growth or conflict, for he is perfect in every aspect. Yes, the great Tatsuya is back, and he’s as bland as ever! Err, I mean badass!

Four years ago, Re:Zero took the world by storm with its fresh and innovative take on the isekai genre, and it rekindled my passion for the anime industry. Now in 2020, a year plagued with disaster and disappointment for many, it has returned with a much appreciated sequel. Amidst the cancellation and delay of a plethora of anime as well as the release of a slew of rather underwhelming others, it was refreshing to tune in to Re:Zero each week to follow its engaging narrative and compelling cast. 

Though there's one integral character that I just can't seem to REMember for some reason...ok no, I can't read more

To those who think this anime is good...

I'LL BE YOUR CONTRADICTION!

Take notes everyone! God of Highschool is a perfect example of how to NOT execute a tournament arc. It introduces this vague organization full of weird looking suits who probably do bad things. Very evil. The tournament itself is as basic as it gets with no originality behind the set up and some of the most bland participants you've ever seen. Very uninspired. The show feels rushed and the story tries to have unique bits complete with a bunch of hocus pocus shenanigans and lore, but it all fails due to horrible explanation and poor read more
