Preliminary
When a series is hyped as much as Tower of God has been, it’s only natural that it’ll bring in a lot of people who just want to detract it. And if the premiere is even slightly off, these people get the perfect opportunity to have a laugh at all the fans who’d been hyping it up. The first episode of Tower of God wasn’t great, I’ll admit. It had several issues, no bigger than the pacing. The events didn’t just go by too quickly, but some of the reasons for events happening didn’t leave the best of impressions.

Yes, pilot episodes are extremely important read more

Sword Art Online finally delivered. After years of mediocrity that’s polarized opinions: one faction in support of the apparently “different take” of Sword Art Online while the other pointing out the definite flaws in the series, one of the most popular anime franchises has lived up to the hype. I was a part of the latter faction for much of the time since the series blasted its way to popularity in 2012. And there were reasons for this: the series started off okay in the first half of Sword Art Online, but then fell off as it used sexualization to evoke tension and rushed through read more

In the recent past, there have been an influx of media portraying stories in which the characters tackle social issues, some successful, some unsuccessful. Most of them do invoke some sort of emotion from the viewers because at least some of the scenarios in them do have a realistic aspect which people can relate to.

Hoshiai no Sora is more of a drama than a sports anime. The sports aspect of the shows is more of a background theme while the core of it portrays how our characters manage the problems they face in their daily lives. I started watching this anime after 3 episodes read more

Every season, it’s become a necessity now for us to have that one anime that just hits all the wrong nerves. It’s the one anime which frustrates you so much that you cannot drop it because you want to see where the trainwreck is going to halt. We had Arifureta last season, Kenja no Mago the season before that, and now in Fall 2019, there’s Assassin’s Pride. Admittedly, Assassin’s Pride isn’t as bad as either of those two. It had its fair share of moments where it made me feel that the anime might take a turn for the better. But for every forward step read more

In the wild, the food chain dictates that carnivores are at the top. No matter what the herbivores do, they cannot match up to the strength of these creatures meant to feast upon them.

However, if there was a civilized world for animals, would carnivores and herbivores be able to live peacefully? Would a carnivore be able to resist its natural instincts and the temptation of tasting the flesh of others, especially that of a herbivore while being in the same room? Does a lion or a wolf let a deer or a zebra go without tearing it apart?

Well, in the world of Beastars, this happens. read more

For the first half of the first episode, Oresuki (Are you the only one who loves me) seemed like a very generic romcom. We’ve got a timid guy whose childhood friend seems to have a crush on him, then enters the Student Council President who asks the main character out on a date. The date seemed to be moving in very predictable manner; homemade lunch by the prez, some close moments and eventually, their faces inched closer and closer as the girl seemed to be confessing her love.

Yes, everything points towards this being yet another harem with cliché characters and repetitive story. But by the read more

When I first watched the trailer of Hataage: Kemono Michi, I didn’t have too many expectations of it. In fact, I thought it would continue in the vein of the loathsome isekai from previous seasons which did nothing but frustrate me. But how wrong I was?! It seemed like a very generic story of a hero summoned to a magical world to defeat the demon lord, make a harem, just with some animal love added in. To be honest, Kemono Michi is very much that. Just that it’s a ton of fun to watch.

Dr. Stone is one of those sorts of anime which you love even though it’s extremely over the top. It’s realistic while being unrealistic, funny yet with high stakes. It’s set in prehistoric-like times and that’s what’s unique about it. Make no mistake, this is the kind of “you’ll either love it or hate it” anime. It’s got these moments that’ll either make you fall in love with the show because of its execution or make you hate it because of how stupid it might seem. I fall into the former category and I’ll explain why. Dr. Stone is as much a comedy show as read more

The disappointment of the season. Worst anime of the year. An anime that should never have existed. No matter how many insults I throw at Arifureta, I'm afraid it will never be enough to convey just how loathsome I consider this atrocity.

There are several levels of bad isekai anime. You've got the disappointing kind like How Not to Summon a Demon Lord. Then comes the horrible kind like Kenja no Mago and Isekai Cheat Magician. And then you have Arifureta in a league of its own with not a single competitor in sight. It's so bad that I watched it every week just to read more

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” - Leonardo da Vinci.

For a show to be good, it’s not always necessary for it to have a complex plot and a deep cast of characters. This is exactly what Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) proves. This show is yet another spectacle by ufotable – the studio that can take an otherwise generic shounen with a fairly linear story and turn it into a show that has fans craving for more every week. The studio has done just that with Kimetsu no Yaiba by making it one of the most popular shows of the year with its animation quality read more
