Knights of Sidonia isn't exactly an anime I paid attention to during its heyday but I decided to give it a shot while trying to find good anime to watch. So, is Knights of Sidonia as good as everyone says it is? Well, let's hop on and find out, shall we?

Story
The concept of humanity fighting a losing battle against an alien species isn't exactly knew, but it can still be interesting if the story in question can put an interesting spin on the concept. Knights of Sidonia revitalizes this concept by portraying humans as scattered survivors escaping from the Gauna and trying to find a ...

Ah yes, the mecha genre. That glorious form of entertainment in which giant robots fight each other, popularized by stories like Gundam, Power Rangers and Transformers. Knight's & Magic (weird title, I know) enters the arena to earn its place in such a respected genre. So, is it good? Well, let's hop on and find out, shall we?

Story
This is where things start to go wrong for Knight's & Magic. There is no actual story. The only thing that even remotely passes for a story is the main character Ernie's interest in robots and he wants to construct as many robots as he can... because he ...

Animated adaptations of video games and fantasy stories have become very popular nowadays, so King's Raid seemed like a good combination and an obvious favorite for people who enjoy both kinds of anime. So, how does King's Raid hold up in a sea of fantasy anime? Well, let's hop on and find out, shall we?

Story
If you think the story of King's Raid is generic, well, you might be right. King's Raid features tropes and conventions that have been seen plenty of times in fantasy stories like different factions joining against a common enemy (The Lord of the Rings), a chosen one with a magical sword ...

With very few exceptions, isekai anime are not generally considered paragons of high quality in the anime industry. Most of them aren't even original: they are derivative, shallow power fantasies for male teenagers that feature magical powers and multiple love interests. The Fruit of Evolution doesn't even try to be original. With a title like that, it's obvious that the titular plot device will be the catalyst for the main story. That said, is The Fruit of Evolution still entertaining? Well, let's hop in and find out, shall we?

Story
You all know the story: regular teenage boy from Japan is suddenly teleported into a magical world, ...

I really enjoyed season 1 of Zombieland Saga and I was pleasantly surprised that this show was renewed for season 2. So, does this show live up to the standards set by season 1? Well, let's hop on and find out, shall we?

Story
The show begins in a way I didn't expect: Franchouchou experiences a terrible setback during a concert that didn't sell enough tickets to turn a profit, saddling the group with a massive debt. I was thinking the season would depict the main characters attempting to pay off the debt and sexperiencing multiple setbacks throughout the story, but this plotline is concluded rather quickly ...

I watched Sailor Moon Crystal a few months ago, so I do have some knowledge about magical girl shows. I'm not a huge fan of the genre but I thought this show would be a good way to pass time. So, was Tokyo Mew Mew New any good? Well, let's hop in and find out, shall we?

Story
The premise of a magical girl show is pretty simple: a group of regular teenage girls is summoned to save the Earth from a mysterious force of evil. It's as basic as a premise can get but it can work as long as the creators know what they're doing. ...

I really enjoyed season 1 of Rising of the Shield Hero. It was one of my favorite shows back in 2019, so you can only imagine my excitement when season 2 was confirmed. Did season 2 live up to the high standards set by season 1? Well, let's hop on and find out, shall we?

Story
Having established a home in the world of Melromarc, Naofumi and his friends face a new challenge in the form of the Spirit Tortoise, a monstrous creature that has gone on a rampage throughout the world. Joining their quest is the fighter-in-training Rishia and Ost, a mysterious woman with a strange ...

Date A Live is one of my favorite shows ever. With its excellent storytelling, poignant character writing, beautiful music and masterful vocal performances, Date A Live has earned a special place in my heart. Unfortunately, Date A Live has had to fight an uphill to continuously earn new seasons, mostly thanks to being stuck in the shadow of more popular anime in the harem genre, like To Love-Ru and Highschool DxD, so I was happy to learn that Date A Live had found a new home in new studio GEEKTOYS, which was committed into developing the story as faithfully as possible. So, did the change ...

I just finished watching the main series, so watching this little extra episode seemed like a no-brainer. So, was this episode any good? Well, let's hop in and find out, shall we?

Story
After the battle at the capital, the heroes get to enjoy some R&R as a festival draws near. This is the perfect setup for a standalone episode like this one because viewers need breaks after world-shattering events, not to mention that characters need character development and to think about what has happened to them.

The basic plotline is that this festival allows the living to spend time with their dead relatives, facilitated by the magic ...

I gotta be honest with you: I love watching movies and TV shows long after their respective hype trains and hate bandwagons have departed from their stations. I don't like watching TV shows when those are still ongoing because I want to do a holistic analysis of what I just watched. I'm perfectly aware that Isekai Cheat Magician didn't leave a good impression on viewers when it first premiered, but I decided to give it a chance because, well, I'm as casual as an anime fan can get.

Story
At its core, Isekai Cheat Magician is a pretty basic story about a guy being summoned to another ...
