After various recommendations to watch Anohana, I finally decided to take some time off my weekend to complete it. Honestly, I found it to be a little disappointing to say the least. Overall, the series was good enough to warrant a score of 7, but not good enough for me to give it anything higher than that.

(For a shorter review, skip right to the end paragraph for the overview)

The story is about 5 friends who are suffering individually from the death of one of their friends when they were younger. Throughout the series, they try to overcome their guilt over the incident and read more

When sifting through a large amount of anime, you mostly find ones that are average and a little bit above average. They are the series that usually keep you entertained throughout, but with little more to be satisfied with. But sometimes, you occasionally stumble upon a series that is much, much more. With only 13 episodes to its name, I can say with sincerity that Natsume Yuujinchou is one of those series that i can definitely say is nothing short of a masterpiece.

From what I've watched so far, I can distinguish that most 13 episode series are either average or poorly done, with some read more

As you may have noticed, Steins;Gate is revered as a masterpiece by most. For those of you who haven't had the privilege of watching this show yet, i'm writing this (belated) review to emphasize just how much you're missing out on.

First of all, you have to understand that Steins;Gate is completely unique compared to other anime, in terms of story line. Now, with such a complex plot, it would be incredibly easy to mess the series up. Except that they didn't. If they did, it wouldn't a masterpiece. Steins;Gate explores the world of time travelling and time lines, putting in acknowledgements to theories read more

There is no short summary for this one because it does not deserve a short summary. End of.

By far, 5 Centimetres per Second is my favourite film. Of all time. (It's actually three episodes, but i just call it a movie). There's plentiful, no - an ocean full of reasons as to why this series deserves the top place on my chart.

If you catch a glimpse of the 40 second trailer somewhere, perhaps you'll see an inkling of why it is so damn good.

Let me start on probably the biggest aspect of the film that won me over. The visuals. Makoto Shinkai read more

Short Overall: Thoroughly enjoying, dynamic and engaging, and possesses characters that you will undoubtedly grow to love. Fantastic soundtrack to accompany somewhat seamless scenes, along with great visuals. Although it doesn't have a complicated plot with unexpected twists, Kuroko no Basket gives so much more than just your average sports series.

Previously, Kuroko no Basket had appeared in numerous threads and places whenever i was searching for something new to delve into. As a non-sports fan myself, i wasn't interested in this series until i read the reviews for it. Many of the people's comments stated that although they didn't like sports themselves, they found read more
