What does it mean to shine?

In lieu of the mainstream media and audiences embracing 'dark and mature' storytelling in favor of 'childish junk' catered towards 12 year olds, this question shouldn't even be relevant in today's world. Yet here it is, in all of its glory. And for the past six years, only one franchise dared to ever raise that question in the 2010s.

Love Live has enjoyed worldwide popularity, and not just because it has cute girls and really nice songs. If such were the case, then that would mean stuff like Show by Rock! would be popular. Sunrise doesn't just take what it sees read more

--(Republished thanks to MAL)--

People make mistakes, and so do animation studios. Sometimes, they deliver great works that stand the test of time; notable classics that give animation a great name. Other times, they fall drastically short on expectations. And this is fine. When you fail, you get back up, right? But sometimes, they create something so vapid, so disgustingly stupid, so unbelievably bad that if I wanted to take it seriously and laud it as a work of art to the masses, I’d have to get a lobotomy first. And I promise you, the score for this series would only go up by a point.

Divine Gate is an asshole; a literal asshole that opens and closes like a tunnel, and inside are all the worms and dried shit from when someone eats shrimp at a local diner, much like yours unless you're one of those special snowflakes who rinse their asses. In other words, it's full of shit.

Now let me be the first to admit that I was pumped for this. I saw the PVs, I liked the art of the phone game and fanboyed at the fact that HITORIE was doing the opening song. And who could blame me for feeling this way? I wasn't expecting a lot read more

The Winter season of 2016 is nearing its end and one of the first series to come to a close is the widely popular ERASED, a series that literally everyone and their mother watched and it is thanks to this popularity that, as of now, it sits at the top of MAL's Top Anime list with a whopping 9.08! So is this show as great as people say it is? Well let's find out!

ERASED owes its popularity to a number of reasons. Reason one, it's a time travel story. It is an undeniable fact that the science fiction concept of time travel has been popular read more

This is going to be my shortest review ever but let's talk EVA.


I watched the series prior to a friend recommending it to me and a couple of other people calling it the "best anime ever". Well, no, it's not. Though I like the Evangelion series, I never thought it was great, much less a masterpiece. Allow me to explain why before you shout "Blasphemy! Blasphemy!".
Firstly, Shinji. I get that he's supposed to be a deconstruction of the fictional hero stereotype but this is rubbed at the audience for so long that it becomes irritating. The series' constant ramblings on the philosophical nature of read more

The reverse harem genre is not one I particularly dislike. When decently executed and well developed, we have a show that can leap bounds with its potential. I had this same hope with the harem genre. Big surprise, I lost my mind after the hundred thousand and eleventh panty shot and gave up on it entirely. But by then, I still had high hopes that the reverse harem genre could possibly be a more fruitful experience than actual harems. I hadn't seen many shows in the genre but from the good things I've heard, I stood firm on my ground, ready to explore!

That was until read more

Success stories have always had a spirit that the Academy and many others have deemed inextinguishable. The soul and passion of the fight to victory has always had an undeniable effect on us humans, who have always had the hidden spirit of desire; the very desire to go the extra mile and make it to the top. And it is in these stories where we see this undeniable burning human passion. We see it in Daniel's eyes in his final match in the Karate Kid. We see it in Rocky, prepared to fight Apollo Creed with everything he has. We see it in Drumline, as read more

As far as one episode OVAs go, which are supposed to be shorter and somewhat lighter than the usual which make for easy watches, this one was hard to sit through. Granted, there was nothing inherently bad about it--... Okay, maybe there was-- but there wasn't anything that stood out. Put simply, it's a steaming pile of self-insert mediocrity.

This is Baby Princess 3D Paradise 0.

--Story (3/10)--
The story starts off with a boy named Youtarou who, unsurprisingly, is as plain as you can get from an ecchi anime protagonist. He lives with his 19 (Yes, nineteen) sisters and is the only boy in the family. read more

Oh shit! Look, guys! Another Mars of Destruction review!

What's it gonna be this time, I wonder? Is it an honest 1? Is it a troll-infused, cancer giving 10!? Is it a hipster 6-8 rating!?

No, it's a ZERO. A huge-ass ZERO! (This fucking number ---> 0) It only looks like a one because MAL doesn't allow us to call anything worse than pathetic. Discriminate fucks. I want my rights!

Anyway, here's MARS OF DESTRUCTION.

==(Story 0/10)==
So, a bunch of Ancients invade planet earth and a squad of soldiers gotta go fast and kill these motherfuckers. You know, for a group of highly skilled weapon professionals (Or so read more

Preliminary
As much as I like my Steins;Gates, Fate/Zeros and Evangelions, there are far too many things about the Slice of Life genre that attract me so much to it. Probably because the so-called "otaku" influence had gotten to my head and got me so into such mundane settings. However, quite recently, I learned the reason as to why Slice of Life is, really, my most favorite genre and that is, not because I can relate, not because there are short skirts abound and most definitely not because I'm a teenager but ultimately because of the complexity of mundane human beings. Now, I know it read more
