*Warning: Wall of text.

Battle Girls: Time Paradox, also called Sengoku Otome: Momoiro Paradox, is an anime based on a topic that we rarely find... history. Indeed, the entire plot is based off Japanese history during the Warring State Era. The only real noticeable difference you'll find is that your favorite long-beared old landlord geezer is replaced with well-endowed, crazy 2-D chicks swinging their bigass weapons around like a crazy yandere, who are, did I mention, big-boobed (albeit Hideyoshi, which I'll touch on later). Yeah, crazy big-boobed yanderes. Mind blowing isn't it? Correct me if I'm wrong, but this replacement of historical figures with big rack read more

*I'll try to keep this short so you don't spend an hour reading this when you could have used that hour to just freaking watch it.

If you've watched enough hentai, you'd notice that hentai doesn't follow the normal plot development. In nearly every hentai, there is no poetic justice. Simply put, the bad guys raping people keeps on raping people without negative consequences. On the other hand, the good guys trying to prevent it and the victims keep getting raped over by hentai-karma. Otome Chibaku Yuugi, however, seems to refute this bland development. For once in a freaking generation, this anime finally DOES have read more

*Pre-Note: Any Ano Hana hurt fanboys are probably not too happy to see this review. It's alright. Rate it down even before reading this if it satisfies your anger. I personally feel a bit sorry for the cute and awesome characters from School Days since they'd suffer for a completely unrelated review, but other than that, I couldn't care less if you did.
To the people who were actually looking for the review, I apologize for this.

School Days, within the recent years, has become a symbol series for the sheer pleasure and entertainment of watching/reading violent love, described by a divine term called "YANDERE". read more

A few days ago, I'd download every anime that had passable art and wasn't a complete brain-kill experience to watch, because I believed that since people took the time and effort to make it, the least I could do is show my appreciation for their (and the anime characters that I personify as real entities) efforts by watching the anime. I'd feel like not downloading an anime was missing out on a unique experience so I forced myself to watch all of them to the point where watching anime became almost like an obligative burden rather than an enjoyment. Watching Ano Hi Mita Hana no read more

*Note* If you hate anything that doesn't have action and plot in it, turn away now. This will be your only warning before brain cells are forcibly obliterated by hours of non-stop chibi characters.

With that out of the way, those who remain may find some value in watching A-Channel. Like I said before, it has no action, no plot, and ultimately no fanservice (sorry "lover of lolis"). However, what it does have is essence. That sounds cheesy and all but that's probably the only word I can think of to describe it. A-Channel is simply about life; not only life, but the essence of read more

Even before I touched the play button on Infinite Stratos (IS), all I've heard about it was "wow so generic", "so boring T_T", "another one of those stupid harem ones". Screw what people think, but I still started watching with a rather pessimistic opinion. IS is generic, but what's so bad about being generic? Isn't the entire definition of being general the idea that it follows the popular and majority trend? Truthfully, an anime that is only accused of being generic doesn't provide ample and concrete evidence of being a bad anime. In fact, I believe that IS is progressing rather nicely. Despite the setback read more

Even at first glance, Fortune Arterial seems... shakey... generic. Whoever said "don't judge a book by its covers" probably didn't look in the right book section because, indeed, Fortune Arterial is shakey and very generic. The experience of watching Fortune Arterial is comparable to eating rotten food (not that you would ever do it voluntarily)- the experience is horrible for the first half, then after eating it for a while your taste buds already dead so you feel that it's passable. After you finish eating all the rotten food, you look back and ask yourself "what the hell just happened?" Not all of the episodes read more

This review is late and way pass the airing date so I don't expect many people to turn to this. After going on anime hiatus for school work for a few months, I started only recently to catch up on things. After finishing Yosuga no Sora last night, I felt I was obligated to write a review for it. And rest assured, it is relatively unfair and impotent to compare this with... let's say Highschool of the Dead since they can't possibly be judged on the same basis, I will rate it on an impartial scale for romance/harem types.

Yosuga no Sora is an anime based read more

As probably the greatest hater of mushy crap romance and annoying bitchiness, I wasn't exactly too thrilled to dive into the unknown pages of Kimi no Iru Machi, a romance manga. But what I ended up experiencing was something far beyond what I expected. I sincerely believe that from the plethora of vocabulary words I know, only one can truly describe this manga- EPIC. The author really knows how to make this story epic. He has twisted the plot in every single way to make the story exciting and to keep the readers on their toes. This deep story mixed with outstanding art comes out read more

Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, The World God Only Knows, is an anime that centers on an otaku gamer's life. When I first found this series, I researched on it a bit on Wikipedia, found it somewhat unimpressive in plot, character and art, and didn't even bother reading the manga. I have to say that I was wrong to judge this series by merely the front cover of its Wikipedia article. After the anime came out and my anime savvy friend directly recommended this to me, I found that I was drawn into the story, something that rarely happens for an ardent critic like me. read more
