Throughout Higurashi Outbreak's lean 50 minute runtime, one thought kept coming to mind.

This... this is stupid, right? It's stupid. I'm pretty sure it's stupid.

So like, this gets praise because it's an edgy and dark OVA unlike the other Higu spinoffs which leaned more towards comedic sexy moe shenanigans. I say no, this is neither dark nor edgy. If anything it's the most sanitized and dull Higurashi has ever been. It's all haha violence go brrrr with none of the suspense and intrigue the series is known for.

Putting aside random developments like the idea of humanity's different cultures being a product of different strains of a ...

First things first, this is not a narrative-driven movie. This is, in fact, a 90 minute animated concert where CG models of the Utapri dudes glide around a very extravagant stage and occasionally banter with one another. If this sounds boring to you then it's an easy skip. However, if there's anything Utapri has had on lock since day one it's the music, so I didn't mind sitting down for this.

Starish, Quartet Night and Heavens all get roughly equal time in the spotlight here, with each unit having two songs each, one big group number at the end, and several shuffle unit songs in the ...

I'm torn. First of all, this is a terrible ending to DR3. It renders pretty much everything that happened in both Future and Despair Arcs completely pointless and continues to undermine the events of SDR2.

On the other hand, it's dumb fun fanservice and I'm a sucker for that.

Soooo... 6/10 is a compromise? This is horribly written and full of deus ex machina bullshit, but... it's fun. If you made it through the rest of DR3, then... might as well.

It's kinda hard to write a substantial review for this because it's literally just 24 minutes of fanservice. Not the sexy kind, though.

lol hope

If I had to describe Danganronpa 3 in one word, it would be "unnecessary". That's ultimately what it all boils down to. DR3 is not a necessary part of Danganronpa canon, nor is it necessary to watch it. It's completely disposable, and altogether just pretty terrible.

It's pretty hard to write an in-depth review of DR3 Future without going into heavy spoiler territory, since exactly where the story goes is a big part of why it's so disappointing, but I'll try my best. Future sets itself up as another killing game, although this time it's more akin to something found in Zero Escape than Danganronpa proper. ...

(Spoilers for the Danganronpa games) As half of the Danganronpa 3 anime experience, Side Despair's purpose is to provide backstory for Side Future as well as fill in Super Danganronpa 2's blanks. Neither should should be watched without playing the first two games in the series, but with Despair's final episode over with I can in good conscience say that they shouldn't be watched at all.

Side Despair's problem is that it's boring, safe, predictable, and pointless. As a companion piece to Side Future it does its job fairly well, but in every other regard it's an absolute failure. Danganronpa and Super Danganronpa 2 left several ...

It's been five years.

I've been ready, you've been ready, everyone's been ready. It's been five years, but only now are we finally making that return trip to Ikebukuro. Question is, is it still as fresh and special as it was the first time around?

The answer is no. Strangely enough, however, I wasn't exactly disappointed.

2010's Durarara!! is pretty much my favourite anime of all time, so expectations for its long-overdue return were, to say the least, pretty gosh darn high. To put it briefly, x2 Shou is not as good as the original. The huge cast of characters returns (but not all of them are given ...

[No one can escape time.]
[It delivers us all to the same end.]

The latest effort in animating this esteemed JRPG series is finally here, aaaaand it's a movie series. This means the release schedule will be hell to endure, but the payoff is definitely worth it so far.

First things first, the animation is beautiful. Anyone let down by the Persona 4 anime’s low quality should breathe easy, for the P3 movie looks stunning. The backgrounds looks great and the characters are sharp and on-model at all times. That movie budget is showing. The Dark Hour in particular looks great, with a muddy painting-esque look differentiating it ...

I had my share of problems with Persona 4's anime adaptation. Actually, I had a truckload of problems with it. Scratch that, I was finding stuff to complain about every single episode. And yet, I look back on it and think "oh wow they actually didn't do that badly, considering they condensed a 70-hour RPG into 25 episodes". Indeed, Devil Survivor 2: The Animation served to put Persona 4 into perspective for me. In spite of all its issues, it really didn't do that much wrong. The story was well developed, the characters all got their moments to shine, and there was still time left ...

Mirai Nikki's anime adaptation begins.


A mess. That's probably the easiest way to describe Mirai Nikki. From beginning to end, it was simply a total mess. The story begins as an apparently simple battle royale between a bunch of varyingly crazy people who can predict the future. By the end it's a dimension-hopping cluster of ridiculous plot twists and some veeeeeeery half-assed writing.

I wouldn't want to spoil this... unique series for anyone, but I'm just going to say that it involves stuff like one character killing and impersonating herself, a gay guy pooped out by GOD who sends texts while getting his head ...

Greetings, commoners. It is I, Emilie De Rochefort the Great. Due to the informal situation, you may call me Lili.
As many of you have no doubt noticed, Namco made the very questionable decision to omit me from the CGI feature "Tekken: Blood Vengeance". Instead, they offered me to watch and review it for this particular website, an offer I graciously accepted.
Now, many (or all) of you may find my omission from this movie to be highly alarming. After all, I am the main character of the Tekken franchise, and the entire plot revolves around me and my exciting exploits. But I suppose that some ...
