I wanted to watch this anime a while ago and when I noticed it was Makoto Shinkai directing it, I thought it would be as astounding as watching Kimi no Na wa (which is by the way an excellent production), but I was painfully wrong.

I just finished watching the whole three episodes and I must tell you: the Netflix synopsis is way more emotional than this whole production. The characters are poorly developed, awfully introduced and the story follows a strange line making very difficult to caught your attention. I'd like to face it as a training piece of work for Makoto.

The scenarios are awesome read more

Kyoukai no Kanata watching experience was waaaay lower than I expected. Stories cannot relay on one single aspect of the whole thing, they must pay attention to every little detail in order to make a great, or at least memorable experience.

The show started amazingly good, with that incredible Akihito's narrative, the awesome rhythm and stunning animation, but somehow they lost it along the way and unfortunately couldn't develop well pretty much anything. Neither the characters nor the plot, not even the side stories. And suddenly it became one...more...episode... A whole pack of cliche with a pinch of good artwork. I think I'd probably wouldn't read more

Preliminary
Inuyashiki is a good anime. It is not one of the best, but I think it's worth of your time.

The story is convincing. It's about 2 men that get exploded by some alien beigns (which should have been more explored) that give them super powers by turning them into machines. So far so good. One of the characters goes to the dark side of the force and the other tries his best to save people. They both have the premisses of 'wanting to feel alive, feel human'. And are well constructed.
The thing I like the most, or at least read more

Just finished watching it. It's not one of the greatest works of all time but it's still pretty good. I first watched wrongly the prequel that was aired after this and didn't like it that much, cause it is way darker than this one.
I like the whole theme of the anime, how mages summon servants to fight amongst them, that's why I was atracted to it, but I think what bothers me the most only happens because of the time the anime was made. The animation and the rhythm of the scenes are pretty lame (the animation was only improved in the last ep). And read more

"music speaks louder than words"

Marvellous.
That's the word that describes this amazing anime. It's such a touching story, you get to know and like every single character that are presented to you. You can feel their fears and know their tastes. They were able to condense such deep stories into only 22 episodes.

This is a MUST WATCH for any anime fan. The animation is outstanding, the soundtrack is beyond comparations - which should be this way, since it's an anime about music. I loved the four op and endings that the show has.
Actually, all the musics in the anime are incredible, real read more

Everytime I hear too much about some anime, I get suspicious. Because most of the times it's gonna be nothing compared to the expectations. This time was no different.
Boku no Hero starts with an awesome proposal: create an intire world of superheros! Just this may charm many people - and it even did it to me. I heard about it from my friend: "It's such an amazing show! You're gonna get the chills."
So, I started watching and somehow got to the end. But what I'm trying to say is that the anime doesn't make you want the next chapter ASAP, it is just a read more

Preliminary
This is a good anime so far, this is why I'm still watching it. I like the whole world that was created, but the story doesn't seem to convince me. The characters, specially Chise, are very shallow. And her, as the main character, should be a little more explored. EDIT (ep 10): she is finally getting herself more prominent in the narrative - finally! And I also watched the OVA for this series that explores her past much more and explains her future actions.
Another thing that bothers me is that many things are left with no further explanation, I think this is cool to do read more
