3-gatsu no Lion is adapted from Umino Chika’s (also known for Hachimitsu to Clover) award winning manga of the same name. Some people tend to be worried when they hear that studio Shaft is going to be adapting anything, but Shaft perfectly adapted the already great manga of 3-gatsu no Lion in a very creative way, as they usually do.
3-gatsu no Lion tells a story about a boy that tries to find a place were he belongs and is accepted, a story that consists of many different parts, each of which can stir up many different kinds of emotions, and when all of them read more

Sweetness is, indeed, the right word to put in the title and it perfectly describes what the show can offer to the viewer.

While watching anime, have you ever caught yourself saying "oh, this cliché again, I've seen that in so many other shows already''. Well, try gathering as many of them as you can think right now, the worst ones, and put them into an anime. Add lots of violence, sexual content and throw bad jokes in the most awkward way possible. There, you've got Taboo Tattoo!

So, what is Taboo Tattoo about? Its story follows a middle-school boy who, after saving a mysterious stranger, he receives a tattoo, that is actually a powerful weapon, and then he gets involved in a war between two sides. Like, read more

There are so many popular titles of sports anime already but, none of them has to do with cheerleading, a guys-only cheerleading, too. Does an anime that revolves around a male cheerleading team sound weird? Maybe, at first, but after just a few minutes in the anime, you can actually realize how interesting and refreshing it is!

In the beginning of Cheer Danshi!! we have the two main protagonists and childhood friends, Kazuma and Haruki, who decide to do something completely different from the ordinary, and obviously, they succeed. At first, there is the thought that it might be hard to get more members for their read more

You thought that having supernatural abilities would make your life easier and more enjoyable? Apparently, not for Saiki-kun.

Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan is an episodic anime with short, 5-minute, episodes with only comedic purpose. It doesn't really have a story, there is just the fact that Saiki is a psychic who actually finds his abilities annoying, while he tries to live a normal everyday life.

We, also, see Saiki's daily interactions with other characters, mainly his classmates and his parents. The characters are the best part of the show as they are all hilarious and you can never get enough of them. They all read more

Shounen Maid is a slice of life/comedy anime of the Spring season 2016, which doesn't seem to be very popular, but that doesn't mean that it is bad or not enjoyable.
In case you got some shounen-ai vibes from it and decided not to watch it or drop it, that is not the case in this anime. Shounen Maid, mainly, revolves around a heartwarming relationship between uncle and nephew.

Story: 8/10
Shounen Maid starts with a heartwarming way, as Chihiro, a young boy, is left homeless with supposedly no relatives after his mom died. That's when he suddenly finds his uncle, Madoka, who decides to take him in, read more

Dropped after episode 29.
Sousei no Onmyouji is Spring 2016 season's average shounen anime with a theme that has already been used many times. It might seem at least a bit nice at first but, it quickly becomes a somewhat repetitive and uninteresting ride. However, the anime has a little special charm of its own and decently developed characters (at least, before the original arc). But, is that enough to call Sousei no Onmyouji a good anime?

Story: 4/10
The story of Sousei no Onmyouji, isn't something new or very original, as we have already seen lots of anime that center on certain people who possess a special read more

In return for their helping him, he has to become the counsil's ''dog''. And that's were the story ends and the trap fanservice begins!

Characters: 2/10
Apart from the protagonist, Hime, the other 3 important characters are the three girls of the student counsil, 18-kin, Unko and read more

I see a lot of different reviews for this anime these couple of days, so I thought it would be a nice chance to write my first review on an anime I finished just yesterday.

Prince of Stride is a sports anime based on an otome game, which I can pretty much sum up with just one word: Mediocre.

Story: 4/10
The first couple of episodes are quite interesting, as they introduce us to the characters and the sport, ''Stride'', which can be described as a running race with parkour between two teams, each with five runners and a relationer. That's all, nothing else is ever read more
