I kid you not when I tell you this manga is pretty much perfectly legible no matter what language you might speak. Having not translations of any kind past chapter six but realizing the lack of quality of this work, I attempted to read the original scans and dear Lord, the Anime Man of the YouTube planes disappointed me for the last time with this terrible recommendation (of sorts). When you can read a manga without reading it at all, you realize there is a thin, thin, THIN line between a masterpiece and an utter piece of shit.

Or, in other words, you can use read more

By far, one of the most beautiful disappointments I've ever seen in my life.

There is much I can say about Angel Beats, and the sad fact is, not much of it is any good. The main points that made this a fun watch largely consist of the series being an absolute eye candy in every way. The animation, designs, lighting, everything was done so superbly well that I initially thought there couldn't possibly be a way to ruin a pretty solid premise with that quality of art. The sound were also a rather solid point, so you have that to look forward to.

Sadly, this is read more

Free! (Anime) add (All reviews)
I was quite literally persuaded to watch this by a gay friend, so you can only imagine that I didn't expect much out of the experience. I expected a bunch of cutesy boys with well developed muscles being adorable with each other and sharing their slice-of-life-ish experiences together, all the while being borderline openly gay. I expected many empty scenes, convoluted melodrama, and unnecessary lack of progression of any real kind.

So imagine my surprise when none of these things really happened.

Not sure how else to put it, but Free! is a pure, lovely, wholesome experience. Whether you view it through the eyes of a shipper read more

There is only so much I can add to this anime that I haven't already said on the review of the first season ( which also I rated with a solid 7). The rating itself remains the same, yet I find myself thinking it could've been even better if it only weren't for where the plot decided to end.

As was with the first season, Kakegurui is still a lovely mess of insane characters and even more questionable bets, giving us everything with love but with new games and a few more characters we can chuckle the insanity of at. The animation is wonderfully detailed where read more

If you arrived to this little gem with any hope for a compelling story of F I N E spooks, drama, betrayal and thriller, you can throw those expectations right out the proverbial window, because this one goes above and beyond to make sure you're reading a well-made thrash black comedy.

Now, to make things clear, I was indeed reading a scanlation. You might wonder why this is important. Now, I don't know if the author over there originally put any memery into this work of art but the boys and gals in charge of translating this beauty seriously went out on the town, read more

Pupa (Anime) add (All reviews)
It's odd how universally hated this one is.

I mean, I guess not entirely odd. It's kind of a rushed clusterfuck of good ideas and concepts, sprinkled with generous amounts of incest hints, so I can see how people would fail to see the core beauty that lies in this cesspool of gorey goodness. Much like a very good cake that fell on the floor one too many times and now looks like nothing but a big pile of shit. But hey, it's still sugary and creamy and whatever-flavour-suits-you on the inside, despite looking like crap and not being too pleasing on the eye.

Not sure if read more

Truly one of the most abhorrent things related to romance I've ever seen, this poor excuse of a TV show is truly why we can't have nice things here in the weeb world.

A prime example of absolutely everything any normal anime or ANY piece of media of romantic nature shouldn't do, it starts on an "amusing" ( at best ) concept worth three minutes of comical screen time, only to turn out to be literally nothing more than that, with the rest of the 25 episodes rehashing basically the same plot of other any other cliche-filled anime there is, and kind of applying its read more

Right off the bat, I'd like to go ahead and just say this is probably not the kind of manga for a large majority of users on this site, especially younger ones. For one, it's likely that it's tagged entirely incorrectly, since I'd much sooner give it the tags of fantasy drama but potato, potahto, no? All that being said: this one is a rather unique read.

Imagine handing your good old book of Peter Rabbit into Tim Burton's hands and asking him to add to it. Then get rid of any stripes or Halloween decorations he might've put in, sprinkle it with some depth, and read more

Jinmen (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
It could be so much more.

Jinmen is a freakshow manga that blesses us with truly beautiful accidents of forced evolution, showing in godawfully beautiful detail just what happens when you decide to give animal something akin to a human brain. Sadly, the designs and art of animals specifically is literally all there is to the few chapters there are out at the moment.

Aside from the nightmare of an animal kingdom the mangaka tried to create, there really isn't much else to grasp one's attention. Its formula is classic; bad things happen, MCs stuck in the worst possible position, survival shenanigans ensue. That itself wouldn't read more

To get rid of the obvious (and least important, IMO) first, animation is a disaster. Moving on.

I dived into Overlord on a recommendation from my best friend and a dedicated anime lover who usually has a pretty good idea of quality. Going by what they said, Overlord on a first note seemed like a very wholesome idea of a guy trying to help the remaining players trapped in the now real game-world, sprinkled with the sweet bits of edginess that is our titular character. I guess I thought it was going to be a bit like Goblin Slayer, if perhaps a bit less traumatic, and read more
