Slice of life is inherently a boring genre. In a medium that’s great at expressing wacky and over the top humor or ideas, what is the appeal of watching people doing normal things? I too ask myself ask that question when trying to watch a lot of slice of life shows, but I think March Comes in Like a Lion shows what you can really do with the gender, and transcends it.

Our story follows Rei Kirigiyama, a high school student who has been a prodigy at the tabletop game shogi ever since middle school, and now plays professionally. However, in the middle of his continued read more

I tend to avoid a lot of new shone anime franchises, although I was mildly intrigued by Fire Force after seeing it had been picked up by Toonami. And seeing as it was animated by Studio David, I was naturally curious to see what’s keeping us from getting another series of Jojo. So what is Fire Force?

Based on the manga by Soul Eater author, , Fire Force tells the tale of a world where people can randomly become engulfed in flames by a phenomenon known as “Spontaneous Combustion”. A young boy named Shinra, who posses the powers of fire monsters called “Infernals”, hopes to put read more

I've been watching Akame ga Kill recently. Mainly just because it was something on my plan to watch list, and it's apparently one of the most popular shows on this website. So I thought I had to watch it at some point to call myself a true anime fan. Heck, I remember the cashier at my local five below actually recommended it to me one time when I was purchasing some anime merch. Although I guess people say you have to watch it in the same way they say you just have to watch Sword Art Online.

Man this show is bad...and it's a shame cuz read more

In Search of Axis was a series of animated shorts made using cgi and early computer animation that were released from 1989 to 1991. The shorts are all roughly two minutes long and contain no story, however, the animation was impressive for the time and is still nice to look at today. There technically aren't any characters, however, there are some abstract looking 3d shapes that dance around the screen, as though they are being personified. It's cute and some nice, trippy animation if you've got six minutes and wanna see what computer animation was like in its infancy.

This was also the first project ever read more

Uhh...So, I was recently doing a little research on one of the most redound studios in anime, Ginax, trying to look back at what they had done before making Neon Genesis Evangelion. To be honest, I kind of don't think Ginax truly deserves their reputation. The only reason they seem to be famous is because they created three very popular series of very debatable quality. (Evangelion, Gurren Lagann FLCL) and I guess a sub par Shonen Jump adaptation (Medaka Box). That's not to say these shows are bad, per se. I love Gurren Lagann and FLCL is easily one of my favorite anime ever, and read more

The Seven Deadly Sins is a show I'd tell people I like, but to be honest, I'm a bit conflicted about it. My first time watching through it, I considered it really enjoyable and exciting! But rewatchng some of it, I see quite a bit of flaws and things I kind of glossed over the first time around.


*contains light spoilers*

The story starts of on a very exciting note. On episode 1, we open up on a kingdom in ruins, immediately creating a sense of tension and curiosity. Then we get to a tavern, where we are introduced to some quirky characters like Melodias and Hawk, read more

The Pokemon anime often isn't very entertaining. It can repetitive, boring, and just annoying. However, this is a very enjoyable piece of Pokemon Animation. It will make you laugh, cry, and keep you on the end of your seat. This was originally a movie in Japan. But for some reason, the pokemon company decided to make Pokemon: The Origin a four-part anime special. Just thought I'd make that clear.

Story- 6

I know I was just praising this, but the story isn't original. The special largely follows the story of the first Pokemon games. And I mean, read more
