Mahou Shoujo Magical Destroyers is an interesting one. It’s an experimental anime that attempts to make an appeal to its broader otaku-orientated audiences while also composing a social commentary about the otakus and its culture. Siding mostly with sympathy for otakus and the cruelty of being ostracized for liking anime and its subcultures, Magical Destryers desperately wanted to convey a guilt-driven fantasy for the unfairness of being misrepresented and illy treated by a larger, ambitiously as well as ambiguously presented “societal”’ forces that want to eradicate them from the face of Japan.

Set in a fictional timeline of the year 2008, the Japanese Government, ...

At some point in everyone's early school life, they experienced the feeling of agony, dread, and uncertainty as well as excitement and anticipation when they first entered this peculiar realm known as high school. A realm within the larger school system that’s often branded with much importance in the eyes of many as it’s the stage in one’s early life that marks many transitions: The transition phase from a teenager to an adult and becoming a part of society, the transition phase of preparation for further education in Universities, and in some cases, it’s a transition phase of life-changing events that define who one can ...

I think at the core of Bocchi the Rock! is the many instances of growth, lessons, and emotional maturation of Hitori, or Bocchi as she goes by in the show, that she undergoes is what made this show work. In all of its light-hearted comedic moments and spectacular visual usage in its presentation, it is all done so in the cause of facilitating the human characterizations of Bocchi to the viewers with relatability and charisma. Without this core theme as the pillar of the entire show, I don’t think it would’ve worked as effectively as it did.

The simple story of Bocchi the Rock! quickly ...

Arknights: Prelude to Dawn is an anime made for people who are already familiar with the series and the franchise, to begin with. It should be noted that the anime is an adaptation of the same game by the same name: Arknights. And as the rest of the anime title implies, the anime is a prologue to what the fans often allude to as an introduction to a much grander narrative filled with plentiful world-building, complex characterizations, and profound mythology. It goes without saying that people who are fans of Arknights and have played the game will have an ecstatic time with Arknights: Prelude to ...

I had high hopes for Summertime Render at the beginning. A show that was seemingly different than the rest of the seasonals with its focus on suspense, murder mystery, and thriller as the foundation of the story. The first episode was so good I didn’t know I was hungry for some good old murder mystery thriller until Summertime Render hit the Spring Seasonal charts for 2022. The show in the beginning had everything set up to be at least an enticing suspense show for me to indulge in for the rest of its runtime. What could go wrong? The show demonstrated with absolute certainty that ...

Ao Ashi (Anime) add
I like Ao Ashi.

What I like about Ao Ashi is the emphasis that in the world of football, not everyone is instantly a top star football player who only plays in the frontline like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. In the world of football, a team consisting of multiple talented players in different positions is what makes different players stand out and valuable in the eyes of many football enthusiasts. When a show like Ao Ashi breaks this false perception in the established norm media, it’s a welcoming thing to see because that means a show like Ao Ashi can explore other aspects of ...

The biggest attraction to this anime is undoubtedly Zhuge Liang or Kongming as he goes by in this anime—which is also his courtesy name. Without Kongming, this anime would end up being a conventional story about a forthcoming artist navigating her way through this world. What Kongming brings to the anime is the bantering between the characters, the charm, the wit, and of course, his intelligence. Being one of the most renowned and respected statesmen and military strategists in Chinese history, Kongming brings what he does best: Surprise its viewers and its casts with his extraordinary execution of strategy and intelligence. But instead of demonstrating ...

Just like Studio Wit’s first project, Attack on Titan, Ranking of Kings succeeded in making waves across the anime community. In comparison to their other projects that I've watched, both series’ first couple of episodes contain some of the best attention grabbers in anime. Ranking of Kings in particular excelled in selling profound and heavy emotions to the viewers. After all, Ranking of Kings is a story about a child who was born with physical disadvantages and his struggle in the journey to becoming someone who would gain respect from everyone. The way Ranking of Kings manipulates its viewers is by demonstrating ...

86 Part 2 (Anime) add
Mixed Feelings
86 tells the story of discrimination, human rights, and the moral values that are built on the societal structures that were put in place. 86 as a series is the byproduct of a liberally indoctrinated ideal society. In liberalism, one of the fundamental values it believes in is the rights of human beings and the unquestionable equal treatment of all people. But of course, that is impossible to achieve because discrimination will always be present. 86 demonstrates these aspects clearly through the first cour and a bit more in the second cour.

This is why 86 is very typical. We have seen these types of ...

The title is misleading. Well, sort of, just not in the way you think.

When I first glanced at the promotional picture of My Senpai is Annoying, along with its anime title, I instinctively thought the “annoying” part was applied to the big, muscular guy in the promotion picture: Futaba Igarashi’s senpai, Harumi Takeda. I thought this show was going to center its gags, plot, and moments around Takeda actively teasing and annoying Igarashi to no end. I was proven wrong. The “annoying” part is really from the perspective of Igarashi. In the office space that she has been working in for the past two ...
