Inuyashiki is a story that stands out with a fine premise to build on, with an interesting choice of an older main character that is sure to spark most people's curiosity. It is also a series that doesn't hold back on its R-rated content, going into places I've personally never seen any other anime go before. For that alone I can say I don't regret watching it.

If we were to discuss the actual quality of the show though... I can't excuse some astonishingly weird or straight-up horrible decisions on the author's part. This is a shame, since it's a show where the animation barely manages read more

Sci-fi stories have as of late become more action-oriented or filled with fantasy-tropes, straying far from being speculative stories about our future and how we might change over time. This is why Kado came in like a welcome breath of classic air, bringing up the interesting questions that the genre is well-known for.

Being interesting alone was however not enough to make this series great.

We start our journey of interdimensional exploration with some rather slow pacing, sometimes used well to flesh out characters, other times to waste an episode on watching the futuristic paint dry. Yet it keeps you hooked by introducing crazy concepts, such as read more

Some shows bore me to tears and feel like a chore to get through. ACCA however has the privilege of being a show that bored me into a strange cozy state of submission. It is a slice-of-life political thriller like no other.

It starts off with the art and music, which immerses you into the world with a colorful yet not overdone palette, accompanied by lounge-like piano music that doesn't dare to raise your heartbeat by even a smidgeon. This choice of tone manages to make the events on screen feel more grounded, but add to this some cinematography that's just kinda passable, and you also read more

X (Anime) add (All reviews)
For a long time I’ve had a special place in my heart for survival games and tournaments, a genre almost in and of itself that only anime can portray in all its glorious fashion. Much like horror slashers where half of the entertainment came from anticipating inventive kills, battle royales tend to tap into a part of my mind that’s fascinated by death and survival. Over time however, it’s clear that a lot of these shows don’t hold up that well. X is one of the few that do still hold up for me, mainly because of its epic execution.

When I say epic, I mean read more

91 Days (Anime) add (All reviews)
91 Days is a rare treat of a series, a period piece and a revenge story that manages to be straightforward and simple in its approach, while still adding extra layers of themes and character-depth as the story progresses.

Our protagonist, Angelo, sees his family get slaughtered by the mafia, and vows to bring down those who wronged him. Angelo infiltrates the family responsible for his family’s demise, and meets with the second most noteworthy character Nero.

At first, seeing how direct and dark the premise of the show was, the pessimist in me feared that the show would rely on mindless action or edgy read more

Monster X Monster invites us into a fantastical world filled with awe-inspiring sights, dazzling magic, and gorgeous artwork. In such a setting full of adventure, what does our story focus on? On a shut-in that would much rather stay at home and play visual novels on his magical game-system.

The first thing that Monster X Monster has going for it is its art. To summarize the quality of the artwork, it is refined yet could use more inspiration. What I mean by that is that the art can be enjoyed for how polished it is - every time a monster shows up there is a read more

Everyone gather around! I'm currently selling tomatoes that you may throw at me for rating One Punch Man anything below a seven! With this foolproof plan... I shall become rich!


It's all been said before, the show has great visuals and exciting action, but offers you thin characters and a singular joke that quickly becomes repetitive with every new villain that Saitama, our protagonist, defeats. That's why I would rather analyze something that hasn't been discussed as much in relation to this show, which would be the use of themes.

If you were to ask me, good use of themes is what separates a regular good read more

With a title like Hallucination from the Womb, you know you are in for a strange experience. Like a siren from ancient myths, it will grab your attention, and then probably drown your brain-cells if you get too close to it. Similar to modern art, some stories appeal to readers by asking them to insert their own interpretation. If you love to immerse yourself and analyze the details of a story, then this manga might just be for you.

The reader will be treated to several fascinating short stories involving the citizens of Shell City, a futuristic yet decaying setting. Undead will rise, children will be read more

EDIT: This was a review written for April Fools. I wish to thank everyone for brightening my day with all the positive feedback and reactions, it really shows that Gintama has taught us to enjoy a good laugh. The review will stay as is, since my opinions can still be found in it, just written in a backwards kinda way.


Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes upon the most overhyped anime of all time! Watch as our main protagonist uses his wooden sword of sentimentality, cutting into the bleeding hearts of all you emotional thinkers, corrupting your rotten brains with the stench of intellectual destitution!

The story of Dimension W takes place in a world where humanity has attained unlimited energy, reshaping the foundation of our daily lives, raising the bar for what is possible for us to achieve. With an interesting premise and the promise of sci-fi action the anime catches your eye easily.

The artwork of the series remains flashy and slightly stylized through the whole experience, even when it obviously cuts a few corners. Sometimes the backgrounds will vanish for example, but rather than hide it, Dimension W makes it their greeting card, turning a weakness into a recognizable trait.

Sadly enough, when I reached the end of the read more
