This series, coming out after the riffraff of the Summer season, looks to be both tasteful and good at the same time...yet doesn't offer which in the way-through of things. With that said, this novel of an adaptation looks to be what Rokudouhou did in the last season: a SoL-comedy thingie of a bob.

This underrated series tells of the episodic stories of Tsukumogami: 100-year-old spirited objects whom have the power to shapeshift into items that their respective owners have once abandoned, and with random (but fixed) people wanting to rent them for their uses. The gist of it is the setting in olden-day Tokyo Edo read more

The season's "premiere" ecchi-harem show, with its premise easy to get into, but ultimately many will see it as being an eyesore to watch as the episodic format, which is as evident as its manga source counterpart.

We are introduced to the most generic of generic MC Fuyuzora Kogarashi, whom has the ability to see spirits since at a young age, but despite his ability, his homeless and penniless state left him wandering around for a cheap place to stay, and that's where his presence lands at Yuragi Inn, which was once a popular hot spring inn, but business had declined due to a supernatural death read more

I'll be completely honest here: Even if I'm not a fan of card games, I do know the massive fanbase of certain card game series that everyone loves and still plays to this day, and this isn't one of them. Should I feel sad? I don't think so.

To understand why the card game got an adaptation into an anime, we need to understand the core series, which is only available in the Land of the Rising Sun, and no one else...(But who cares anyways)…

The story is Dance Of The Dragons-like confusing and hard to understand, but you just need this one exact point to understand read more

The title is as the anime suggests: a girl aiming for the high score...right??? Well, you're both right and wrong. In the midst of the slew of J.C.Staff's shows this Summer, this is the most quietest of the bunch, therefore receiving very little attention from the community, but is by no means a great nor bad show.

If you're an avid, classic gamer, this series should come as no surprise when talking about the story, which is rooted in the early 1990s where console and arcade games were all the rage with the gaming culture landscape, most notably rooted in the just-released Street Fighter II which read more

The school-music combi genre has seen its share of influences from early series such as KyoAni's K-On! and Hibike! Euphonium to Sunrise's Love Live! School series, sprinkling in A-1 Picture's Your Lie In April to name a few.

Enter the new competitor in the stream of school-music genre-based arithmetic: Shoujo☆Kageki Revue Starlight, from the studio that brought you the breath-taking and captivating Made In Abyss, and a competent staff team that's now well respected, that gave their all from the get-go.

At first, I wasn't quite keen on watching this with the said genres as the formula as been consistent no matter the numerous series that the read more

Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger was onboard one of the hype trains of the season. for it being handled by relatively high-quality areas: the staff over at studio P.A. Works for immensely action-thriller-esque formula done by the one and only Masahiro Ando (FMA key animator, director for Hanasaku Iroha, Zetsuen no Tempest), the voice casting done by popular veterans and the art and animation style that's purely P.A. Works alone which looks good to the eye. With all of that said, with this series being an original, what is it actually about?

Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger as an original, it unfortunately doesn't stand out in the way read more

Historical anime is all the rage now with Golden Kamuy as an establishment in the current seasonal lineup, and here comes a series that was airing in its quietness whilst the current below-average seasonal lineup that is seriously underrated and deserves to be watched amongst the rest of the pile.

Angolmois: Record of Mongol Invasion, as a series, if you're wondering what the context of this story is actually based on, it's taken from the real life occurrence of samurai defending Japan from the first-ever Mongol invasion, more specifically, following the Battle of Bun'ei (or the First Battle of Hakata Bay) in 1274, with the difference read more

We've seen series like Detective Conan and Hyouka where the mystery genre is a full-on scale. Well...with this series, be thankful that it isn't like that, and instead is integrated right into the story in the episodic format (and feels like some series are episodic)…

This series is fairly new, with the novel just released in 2015 then the manga adaptation just last year. And now with the anime adaptation by the studio couldn't do things right, now making way for decent art and animation with the series.

If you like or have a fascination with Sherlock Holmes, this anime should be on your line of sight, read more

Almost every other series this season is up to no good with the cloning formula...some are good, some are decent, and some are not, and Jashin-chan Dropkick is dare I say, a mix of Gabriel DropOut and Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan, that actually is surprisingly good, I must say.

Jashin-chan Dropkick has no story and its laid out in its episodic manga adaptation format, so it's easy to get into this series without any prior notice, and technically it does support with its range of characters, from the Satania-like Jashin-chan to Dokuro-esper Yurine Hanazono and the rest of the cast which consists of Medusa (which acts like read more

From the same creator of Saekano, White Album 2 and the more recent Classroom Crisis, comes a series of supernatural-action sequences of the core Vampire genre that is great for a new series...on paper. My first impressions of this is just...another Twilight the Animation, with the otome-esque features that thankfully isn't full-on that combines the setting from Nil Admirari (only if it were in London, when it actually is).

The story is as nonsensical as how Classroom Crisis started out: a cliché story of said character(s) being targeted for reasons unknown, until they meet people whom form the core foundations of such contrived organizations and do read more
