Munou na Nana (Anime) add
[ There are going to be some massive spoilers in this review as it’s impossible to criticize this show without giving away massive plot points]

Talentless Nana is a wasted potential if I ever saw one. It builds up everything in its favour in the first episode, only to discard it in the subsequent ones. Although the concept works, the execution and the characters, especially the characters, don’t.

The show is a murder mystery, but not for us. We already know “whodunnit” in the first episode, but the characters don’t. It’s set in a world where some children manifest superhuman abilities, and are sent to a ...

Kaguya sama wa kokurasetai season 2 is the disappointment of the season. It has its ups and downs, the ups being the final three episodes, and the downs being the rest of the season. Only the final three episodes provide any sense of progression, be it for the characters or for the plot. Ishigami’s long awaited character arc was freaking fantastic, but the same can’t be said about the other characters'.

Even after 24 episodes have aired, many of the characters are as bland as they were in the first episode of the first season. I was able to overlook this in season 1, because I ...

Mixed Feelings
My hero academia, after having an explosion in its popularity while season 2 was airing, is arguably the most popular shounen right now that is not One Piece. And the hype is mostly deserved be it for having a well-balanced cast of characters, or for the fantastically animated and choreographed fights, the latter of which had a massive dip in quality this season. This entire season does not live up to the extreme hype perpetuated by the manga community.

The animation is very stiff even relying on still frames at times; the characters feel like they haven’t progressed at all since the beginning of season ...

Vinland Saga (Anime) add
[Paragraphs that contain spoilers have been marked]

I was hyped for Vinland Saga, more hyped than I’d been for any anime the whole year. I even waited for all episodes to air before binging the show because considering the things I’d heard about it, I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop once I started watching it. It definitely did live up to the hype and I enjoyed the hell out of it, but I did find few pacing issues among other problems.

[Story and World]

Vinland Saga is a show about Vikings. You know those horned helmets wearing, axe wielding, wine drinking badasses who discovered America? ...

Fire force is a story about people with fiery hearts fighting fire with fire. Set in a world where people spontaneously combust and turn into mindless burning zombies the Fire Force is responsible for controlling the damage caused by these “infernos”. Many people in this world are bestowed upon by Solomon the ability to control fire. After watching the first two episodes I really thought I would be able to enjoy this, but shortly afterwards the enjoyment I found in the bombastic nature of the first two episodes was burnt and tossed into oblivion.

This is probably the worst directed and worst framed show to come ...

I used to be an agnostic, but this anime has turned me into an atheist. Seriously, look at this abomination and tell me there’s a god. Where did we go wrong? I had just started forgiving JC Staff for OPM S2, but now my anger and disappointment, mainly disappointment, have been rekindled.

Okaasan online which is better known as “Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de Nikai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki Desuka” which roughly translates to “This is a light novel adaptation”, is an anime about a guy being transported to another world. You might be thinking, “OK, it’s another one of those”, but don’t ...

Dr. Stone (Anime) add
Preliminary (6/24 eps)
Dr. Stone is one of those anime that try to look smart but end up looking like pretentious Instagram models craving for attention. I know it’s a shounen and all so it doesn’t need to be the most believable of stories, but when you put “Science” into the equation, the characters and their actions need to be pragmatic. Dr. Stone tries to put refreshing stuff on the plate but soon after starts following the same generic formulaic quintessential path most shounen are loathed for.

The plot is pretty ingenious, I’ll give them that. Strange green light turns all of humanity into stone and after about ...

[Spoiler Warning]

I am a fan of JOJO, a big one at that, but this part, i.e. part 5 is kind of overrated. Now, before you guys unleash the 7-page Muda on me, let me address this first - overrated does not mean bad, it just means that while the show is good, people put it on a pedestal reserved for the greats. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get started.

JOJO Part 5 aka “Golden (Experience) Wind” aka “How does King Crimson work?” aka “Araki flexes on you with his awesome taste in music” aka “Girono’s piss drinking adventure” is the fifth instalment ...
