Preliminary
Apparently, you have to wait until 4 episodes into a season to do a review for it. Guess the MAL staff never heard of the “3 episodes then drop” internet rule eh?

These are my thoughts after seeing the first 4 episodes. Also I think it is important to note that most of my thoughts are tied into both the entire first season and the episodes out so far in season 2. There is no gap between season 1 and 2 so it would be silly to separate season 2.

Honestly there were a lot of things that I liked about the first season of this show. read more

I apologize for the short blurt nature of this review. This film is part of a Pokemon film rewatch series I am doing with some friends.

We decided to thrown this film into our movie night because "hey lets get that really awful 3rd film in now so we say we watched it". This film is...hard to call a film. Its visual quality is on-par with a tv episode, the soundtrack/score for the film is quite simply awful, and the plot is extremely boring. The Unknown Pokemon are inherently interesting but they are used in such a way that trivializes their uniqueness.

Overall this is read more

Rewatched this with some friends recently. This is the second feature-length Pokemon film. This film, like the first one, does have a fair share of filmatic moments, as in it actually feels like a film (which funny enough is not the case for a lot of the later Pokemon films starting in the Diamond and Pearl time frame onwards).

However, while you can chalk up a lot of the issues in the first film as "hey it was their first stab at it", there are A LOT of issues in this second film. The biggest issue I have with the film is the absolute failure read more

This review is just a blurt of thoughts as it is part of a Pokemon watch series I am doing with some friends. I apologize for the short format.

Just re-watched this film with some friends; it's still a meh film. It is mostly enjoyable due to nostalgia reasons. However as a film, it shows its cracks in many places. The narrative seems pointless, the side characters are not fleshed out what so ever, and in a lot of spots the animation and artwork look pretty bad even for a late 90's animated film.

However, this film is still quite watchable. It isn't bad but it read more

My review was removed for apparently having the wrong amount of episodes watched recorded. So, thanks for that MAL staff.

This review encapsulates my feelings after seeing 10 of the episodes so far.

Finished review at the very bottom.

I am a HUGE Tower of God fan. When I first started reading the WebToon, I was floored with how interesting and griping its story and characters were. As the story progressed, the world itself started to show how much potential the series had. To this day (and mind you it is still ongoing), it is the best WebToon I've read. Everything about it feels so polished minus read more

The short of this is that I feel like episodes 1 and 2 were way too padded out. I feel like a far better edited version of this could exist as a 1 hour and some change film.

Also treat this as a review for all of Season 3. The scores and final opinions put the whole season into consideration. If you want a score for just these last 3 episodes, I'd give it a 6/10.

I think the results of these 3 episodes are pretty great. The series has, in my opinion, totally redeemed itself from the mess that the 2nd season and the movie brought read more

I'm currently still reading Tower of God and it is no where near its end. So take what you read below with a grain of salt. Also no spoilers.

This series took forever to end up on MAL because what MAL attributes to an actual series is something that is published/aired on TV/showcased in a theater. Dumbasses.

HOWEVER we now have this series on MAL and a freaking anime adaptation coming out soon to boot.

Until the series has concluded, I'm just going to write down my current thoughts on the series so far.

Tower of God has been, for the past 4 or so years, been read more

I'm going to talk about specific things in this film so yes there might be spoilers in here. Here's my hot take on this film; it's an absolute strikeout. They came to bat with a home run monster only to swing and miss way too many times.

I want to say I am a Shinkai fan. Garden of Words is one of my favorite anime films full stop. Your Name, while very predictable and a little annoying with the editing (it's a film not a music video) is an enjoyable film upon its first viewing. 5 Centimeters Per Second, I haven't seen yet. Having just seen read more

This review has spoilers. Short story shorter, you should watch this film for the beautiful mess it is.

I recently re-saw “The Tale of the Princess Kaguya” in theaters due to a limited re-release in the States. Seeing it on the big screen definitely made me appreciate it's unique art-style. However, literally everything else that the film had to offer really made me take a step back and rethink what I remembered seeing in this film when I saw it for the first time years ago.

The best way I can describe this film is a beautiful mess. It presents a lot of interesting ideas and read more

No spoilers here

Demon Slayer is a show that I would not allow myself to get caught up in the hype for. Whenever the anime community really gets behind a show/film, it can only degrade the overall enjoyment of it. So I turned my ears off for this show; I completely ignored everything about it until episode 25 came out. Then I watched every episode within a week so that I only had one more episode to watch. So here's my conclusion:

The show is pretty great. It does however have some serious deadspots that really hamper the overall enjoyment. I want to say there's like, three read more
