Interesting ideas with a poor presentation makes for best comedy anime of the year.

What do you believe originality is? What comes to your mind? Is it making something that has never been made before? Maybe doing something that has never been done before? Well, Originality is the ability to think independently and creatively. An often occurrence in the community is fans complaining about the lack of originality and inventiveness in titles. And when a show like Re:Zero comes along, people begin to shout certain words.. While I disagree with the idea that something can be truly 'original' since everything in one way or another draws read more

ReLIFE (Anime) add (All reviews)
There is a certain dilemma I face when watching anime and it's that there are lots of anime centred around high school and frankly I'm really sick of it. High school anime, more often than not, don't try and focus on the high school aspect but use the genre as a backdrop so that the series can focus on more important aspects. Whether that be romance or an high stakes death game.

That however doesn't mean I don't like my fair share of high school anime that try to deconstruct or play around with the genre. Two of my favourites being Prison School & SNAFU, that read more

"Are you stupid?"

Ahh, time travel. That big ball of timey wimey as the doctor once said, filled with countless paradoxes, plot holes, problems, different theories on how it could work and lots of books, movies and television series that have used the concept in so many different & interesting ways. Add a mystery story into the mix and what do you get?

Something to work with. But did Erased work with this idea well? No.

Note: I don't know why its 10 on MAL as of writing this. I'm here to get this far away from MAL's top 10.

"If god exists why did he allow this to be?"

When it comes to making money for an anime company there is always a quick sure-fire way to make it. And no this isn't one of those add scams you've seen on your browser window. It's by making a harem! Use some cookie cutter character archetypes and a half baked story and fan-boys will start to defend it as really good and original. They will use excuses such as "It's a harem. It's not meant for plot."

But I'm here to tell you why me and so many other people hate Asterisk War so much.

"When you fall for someones personality, everyone about them becomes beautiful."

Note: This review SPOILS the FIRST THREE EPISODES, they aren't major to the story and will not take away from your overall experience of Ore Monogatari, but if you don't like spoilers regardless if they matter or not TURN AWAY!

Love is a wonderful thing. It comes in many shapes & sizes. And even comes when you least expect it. Love can change people for better or for worse. And when talking about someones first love, it is an unforgettable memory. This is where My Love Story came along and showed me a somewhat "unique" take read more

"Why was this hyped?" - Average SAO Hater

Death threats inc. Hold your horses boys and girls! Someone on the internet is going to have a different perspective on your favourite show! And you're going to get you more triggered than a feminist listening to Meghan Trainor.

Nonlinear narrative, disjointed narrative or disrupted narrative is a narrative technique used in literature and film which is a unique way of telling a story and for the most part is enjoyable style to be seen played out. Kekkai is one of those shows that uses a disjointed narrative, but does it succeed as a good show? In my opinion.. read more
