If I could sum up this review it would be: High School of the Dead is Harem, ecchi, horror. So going in you know what you’re going to get which make complaints about the fan service in the show mind boggling.

The story of the zombie apocalypse is something that’s been done for a very long time. Whether it’s movies, television, comic books or video games, some attempts have been really successful in terms of portraying the world infested by these flesh eaters (Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, The Last of Us, Crossed) and some have been average to downright bad (everything after the first season read more

Gantz (Anime) add (All reviews)
Gantz is infamous for its excessive amount of gore and explicit sex, which is its bread and butter, and this does sound awesome on paper but it lacks any real likeable characters and has a story with more questions than answers.

Story

Gantz is about two students who die in a train accident after saving a hobo’s life. They awake in a room with a giant black ball called Gantz and other people who have died recently. The ball in this room commands them to kill aliens every night within a certain amount of time and with every kill they rack up points. After every night of read more

If I had a teacher like Onizuka I would actually have enjoyed school and looked forward to attending every day. The show itself is good but he makes it great. For those of you who have yet to watch it, please let me try and convince you with a short review to give it a try. This is my review.

Story
The story of GTO concerns Eikichi Onizuka, a reformed biker gang leader that strives to be a great teacher and meet chicks. The story of the teacher that reforms delinquents has been done countless times but the story of GTO feels fresh. For one, read more

Preliminary
This review will be short and to the point.

Yu-Gi-Oh! was one of the very first ever anime titles I watched and I’m currently re-watching it. I have to say I’m surprised to find that it’s more enjoyable now than when I was eight years old probably seeing as I have a much better attention span now. This is my review.

Story
Yu-Gi-Oh! revolves around a game called Duel Monsters which is a card game where players summon mythical monsters and duel against each other. The plot is simple but the more you watch the show the more interesting the games become. The read more

The word “otaku” used to be extremely derogatory, but in recent years, the word has become a lot less negative with many people (the users of Myanimelist for example) coming to identify themselves as otaku. However, this is still a major problem in Japan. We have the idea that it’s pretty normal for someone in Japan to obsess about anime and manga. However over there, “otaku” is used to describe someone that’s weird, unskilled, lacks the competence to be in a healthy relationship and/or can’t secure a stable job.

This is what Welcome to the NHK is about, the story of such an otaku’s read more

Over Drive is the very definition of “underdog”. No one expects much from it, but it manages to defy expectations and come out victorious. It’s not as popular as other sports titles like Hajime no Ippo or Eyeshield 21, but it can easily go toe-to-toe with the best of the genre. It’s a sweet, exciting, sometimes funny and highly enjoyable title that manages to entertain from the get-go right up to the very end. This is my review.

The story of Over Drive centres around Shinozaki, a high school student who joins a cycling club upon discovering a love for the sport read more

This won’t be an in depth review because everyone knows about Dragon Ball and its influence and there are already numerous reviews written about it. This will just give you an idea of whether you should watch it or not, for those who haven’t yet.

Dragon Ball undeservedly doesn’t receive the same attention as its more popular sequel. The Dragon Ball series does receive a lot of flack for being really repetitive and for its unnecessarily long fight sequences but it’s really unfair to compare the franchise to what the shonen genre has become today. Because of this people tend to overlook Dragon Ball.

Preliminary
I’m still a relative newbie to anime, but so far, slice of life has been pretty good to me. Polar Bear Café manages to continue this trend. It’s a pretty silly and stupid show. It may not be gut bustingly hilarious (I’ll explain why), but it’s still very entertaining. This is my review.

Contains Minor Spoilers

Story
The story of Polar Bear Café is really simple as it just follows the daily escapades of a café run by a Polar Bear’s regulars. There is no overarching plot and the stories are broken up into two 12-minute segments like a lot of western animated shows. This read more

My personal opinion is that a lot of people find slice of life/school comedies very unappealing because the entire setup of teenage angst and relationship problems set within an educational environment seems unoriginal and really really boring. I think that the lack of explosions is what turns off most people from watching slice of life anime. I’m not against slice of life, in fact I’ve seen an anime or two that surprised me and had me more excited than some of the action packed blood and boob filled shows I’ve seen in the past.

There has to be some kind of hook to get the read more

Anime fatigue – extreme tiredness resulting from mental exertion because of watching anime

A lot of anime fans go through a period where they’re in a rut. They watch anime out of obligation instead of pure enjoyment and escapism. Angel Beats! will always be near and dear to me because it was the show that got me out of my funk and reminded me of why I loved anime so much in the first place.

It had it an action packed story that managed to balance comedy with some fantastic heart wrenching drama, stellar voice acting, beautiful art and some of the most memorable characters I’ve read more
