One of the more bizarre series I've ever watched; I'm actually surprised I finished it tbh. This is going to be a hit or miss for some people; either you are interested in how anime is made or you aren't.

I was pretty indifferent going in, but I'm actually glad i stuck it out. For starters, there isn't much of a story here, its a semi-realistic look into how anime is made from the perspective of our lead Production staff member, Aoi.

It starts by throwing you into a whirlwind of terminology and the hectic pace of office life in a rather small production company. read more

Preliminary
This manga has defeated me and i will stop reading it now. I'm not very good with depressing material, but the intensity and mood this sets is unlike anything i've ever seen or read.

The story is about two middle aged friends who live in a crime infested city filled with abnormal humans, some of which are very powerful. Not shounen type powerful, but very strong / hard to kill. The focus is on the two main characters who do odd jobs for the local mafia type gangs, from bodyguards, to delivering packages. Early they meet a prostitute doing tricks read more

What can be said that hasn't already? It was an absolutely amazing ride, it was refreshing in a way i never really expected.

I would consider the constant barrage of negative reviews to be a superb level of butthurt that i enjoy.

AgK is a story about assassins taking down the bad guys. That's all you really need to know about the story. It's gutsy, gory and amazingly fast paced. It reminded me alot of SnK, and i think they were trying to recapture the magic that story had.

Unfortunately it fell flat on its face, so there are legitimate criticisms read more

Ouroboros, a snake eating its own tail. Most Ouroboros i've seen are depicted as a single snake, but perhaps in Japanese derpology there are two. And this series uses the twin Ouroboros to spin a fine yarn and it masters the use of duality throughout its pages.

This manga, like my score and review, is squarely aimed at readers who enjoy detective stories. If you don't like the catch and repeat, episodic nature of some of this, then you may as well hop of the paddy wagon. Ouroboros is a little different than many of the detective stories i've read before, it read more

May contain minor spoilers, will leave out story spoilers.

I'd like to sum this up at the beginning, but don't want to give it away just incase you haven't seen it.

The story was actually the best part, in a sense. Needless is about people who have supernatural powers called fragments that allow them to do wild shit. The first 7 episodes of this are amazingly badass, it really sucks you in and the story just takes off quick and runs full steam ahead. I can't really elaborate on the story without giving too much away, but a group of Needless go take on read more

I checked the recommendations for One Outs after I finished it and saw this show in the list. Never heard of it before, but it definitely surprised in a positive way.

ETU is a football (soccer) club that has gone through a number of different coaches, none of which produced any good results, in fact it was one disaster after another. ETU went from a storied team at its height, to a fringe club barely keeping up in the league play with its all around defensive play.

One of the new managers decides to hunt down one of ETU's last star players in England based read more

After watching all the available episodes of Haikyuu! i needed something similar and fast. So i remembered that people were super high on this basketball show, and i sort of regret watching it directly after Haikyuu!

The problem is that even though i'm trying not to compare the two, i'm doing it anyway, and i'm finding a number of things lacking.

KnB is about highschool kids playing basketball, its a super quick starter, you watch a few episodes and then you're in a full on tournament where the protagonists are fighting for their life to beat teams that are probably better. So its an read more

Seinfield was a long running SitCom in the US, beloved by a large number of people, it had no plot, no aim, no overarching point to it.

Personally, i never liked Seinfield, the sort of situational humor, revolving around mostly dialogue, is something that I'm just not that into. I think we can draw certain obvious parallels between Seinfield and BwTgS.

One of the biggest differences, imo, is that BwTgS actually made me laugh.

BwTgS is about two losers who have no frens, one loser has an imaginary fren, who she is caught talking to like a lunatic. B/c these weirdos click on an

Sekirei (Anime) add (All reviews)
Sekirei is actually a pretty generic show in terms of plot, characters, story, and art. The ecchi and harem aspect can immediately put people off. With those things in mind, this is by far one of my most favorite hidden gems in anime that i've found.

b-b-b-but you gave its a 7?? Yes i did, that's b/c the anime isn't finished; there are two seasons and many rumors about a third. This is also the first anime that has made me pick up the manga. If the story were complete, or at least if there were more episodes, this would get read more

I'm going to write an unbiased review.

this show is a f****** masterpiece.

What you need to know is that the MC in this beauty is OP as F***.

He is the God of Date Sims. He has the ability to play 12 games at once, he doesn't need to sleep, he doesn't need to eat, ok he needs to do both, but that's just reality tugging him back into what he refers to as "a crappy game."

If you would have told me 1 year ago that I would be watching and reviewing a romance/comedy/SoL show, i would have right high kicked you. Never mind read more
