This show begs the only question that only serves to boggle my mind: What's up with sequels that fail to live up to the potential of their former premiere seasons?

Being the final show to finish out of the paltry Winter 2023 season that is honestly nothing more than a throwback to the COVID days of early 2020, novelist Yumikan's Bofuri was at least back then when the pandemic just started in the Winter season, a breath of fresh air when it came to parodying close premises like SAO on the subject matter. And above all, a potential of a show that has limitless ways to ...

Yet another year goes by, and yet another year, comes another season of Sorcerous Stabber Orphen.

It's clear that there is an audience in Japan that is calling for the remake adaptations of novelist Yoshinobu Akita's acclaimed Majutsushi Orphen Hagure Tabi a.k.a Sorcerous Stabber Orphen, that 3 years on, we're now into the Seasons 3 and 4, 2-cour continuous season that is the Chaos in Urbanrama arc, followed by the Doom of Dragon's Sanctuary arc that we'll be getting the week after, for some non-stop Orphen action.

But truth be told, I am feeling the watchers' remorse that as every season is stressed on, it just got ...

Once again, another overlooked show from the Winter season that you should be watching, albeit that you should give this the chance that it really deserves.

When it comes to sports series, we've had all sorts of sports in the last few years, the most prominent being soccer in the form of last year's Ao Ashi and Blue Lock. But niche sports like sumo (with 2018's Hinomaruzumou a.k.a. Hinomaru Sumo) and boxing (with Megalo Box or even Netflix's Baki series) are far and few in-between, that's it's hard to keep one's attention at doing something similar, yet different. And one of those shows this season, is ...

I don't understand how this show just went so overlooked, especially since there were furry elements alright, but it is more than what you will expect.

The obvious case of comparison being that of Mahoutsukai no Yome a.k.a The Ancient Magus Bride, mangaka Makoto Hoshino's lone work that is Nokemono-tachi no Yoru a.k.a The Tale of the Outcasts, is a fantasy story that features furries no doubt, but the storytelling makes light of that comparison to try not to be said series but it's very own element, which I think makes it stand out in its own right. No doubt that this was kinda of a ...

Another day, another mediocre many of these must we trough our way through before these average shows are the bane of the AniManga industry as it is today, being oversaturated with shit like these?

Novelist Kiichi Kosuzu's Saikyou Onmyouji no Isekai Tenseiki a.k.a The Reincarnation of the Strongest Exorcist in Another World, is exactly what it sounds like: the same dumbass power fantasy Isekai that you've seen a thousand times over, wondering why does Japan love the hell about shit like these that the rest of the world know not of its demise. Unfortunately, being people that don't dictate how the AniManga industry works, we ...

One of the worst anime of 2021 gets a sequel. What the hell, SERIOUSLY, WHAT. THE. HELL.

Novelist Miku's Shinka no Mi has dived deep into the rabbit's hole for one reason and one reason only: it knows NOT the meaning of "bottom of the barrel", SO HARD that this season, the sequel goes into overdrive of what made Season 1 "so bad it's good". Thinking about Season 1 now, I'd feel that it was a masterpiece when compared to this accursed season being given "The Promised Neverland" treatment, which I'm more than happy that this is the case for the sequel: to crush its potential ...

In a P.A. Works' board meeting:
Producers: Hey, did you know that there is this popular show called Spy X Family making waves recently? It's the story of a family of spies raising an orphan child. I bet we can make an imitation of that!
Mitsuhito Tsuji and Toba Yosuke: Not to worry, if that is your primary concern, we got you covered. For we have a story to tell of the same, but different!

P.A. Works has for almost its lifetime as the designated "original anime" studio, produced some hit-or-miss shows of the last few years, that watch any one of them, you'll know that it's unmistakably ...

Assassination Classroom: Cute Girls Doing Cute Things ver., that is nowhere close to being an exact replication, none at all.

Well, what a time, and what a place that we call ourselves as anime veterans to watch botched/butchered adaptations come to life, with the most recent curse of a red flag being the Winter 2021 anime sequel to The Promised Neverland, which can be dictated as "speedrunning to the max". And 2 years later, we're seeing this with novelist Takemachi's Spy Kyoushitsu a.k.a Spy Clasroom (or just simply called Spy Room). The obvious reference is as what Gigguk would mention this as the "re-skinned Assassination Classroom", ...

You know what I always say about idol shows: it's nothing more than just a cash grab at a growing franchise...that no one bothers about it. Only the ones that do, make a splash, and for others like Technoroid, created by RUCCA, CyberAgent, Avex Pictures, and Elements Garden under its creator Noriyasu Agematsu, the brainchild of Fall 2021's mediocre showing of Visual Prison under A-1 Pictures, it's the umpteenth time that people in the West are saying: we DO NOT NEED more bullcrap shows like this. But Technoroid: Overmind, is a wee bit different, and is something that's more than what the average idol show ...

This show in a nutshell, sums up this perfect quote: "We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." - T. S. Eliot, spaking about Life, Hilarity and Inspiration, Four Quartets "Little Gidding" Pt. 5

To say that novelist Ren Eguchi's Tondemo Skill de Isekai Hourou Meshi a.k.a Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill is the now-famed studio MAPPA's first-ever undertaking of the Isekai genre, to have people say that this show is MAPPA's Peak-sekai, it's not entirely baseless at all. No doubt it ...
