Prison School (Manga) add

92 were impressed!
5 were not interested in the farce
3 found most characters unlikable

Once again, I’ve put off reviewing something I read a few months ago. I wasn’t ruminating on Prison School or anything, just distracted by real life. Prison School was an enjoyable read that had a much longer run than I initially anticipated. It may have been the perfect comedy to enjoy while I was bedridden with CoronaFlu. The series garnered quite the reputation and when it finished a few years back it thoroughly received the ire of its readership for what was considered a rather lackluster ending.

Frankly, I ...

there were no nobles left in the theatre to question

The designation for a show on MAL for a rating of one is "Appalling". I can think of no better descriptor for School Days.
I would not categorize the show as misery porn as that would suggest it had an interesting enough plot to be porn.
Some people may suggest as the show is an adaptation of a VN bad ending route that the nonsensical and alien interactions of the characters are somehow justified, but I was savvy to this and still just annoyed. It was not entertaining. It was not ...

15 thought there wasn’t meat on the bones for the story
10 weren’t that impressed with the artwork

Tedama ni Toritai Kurikiya-san is a manga in the unfortunately niche genre of gyaru romance. It follows a dumb as rocks girl trying to get her childhood friend to confess to her. The story has an interesting hook that the male lead is a comedically honest and straightforward person so when the lusty heroine tries to play the games typical of the genre her plans usually backfire.

The series kept things very brief at just under 40 chapters so perhaps my complaint about ...

Dungeon Meshi (Manga) add

100 were impressed!

It’s finally here, the last chapter of Dungeon Meshi is finally out and the series (barring any epilogue or supplemental material) is over. There are so many manga that run endlessly, feel like they will never end, or peter out with a whimper. I cannot give enough praise for a work like Dungeon Meshi that has a good structure and ends concisely. The series ran a good many years for something that did not break 100 chapters, but that is simply because Ryouko Kui (九井谅子)created something that has such attention to detail. The world of Dungeon Meshi is carefully ...

50 were impressed
25 were lost in context
20 died in a CG Hindenburg
5 died of chuunibyou

Despite my terrible score, I did not think “Hellsing: Ultimate” was an unenjoyable experience. “Hellsing” (the Manga) was a pioneer of style that exploded in niche popularity from a doujin 1-shot written by its creator Kouta Hirano. The series started publication two years before the term “中二病” was first used and I can see it as nothing short of the gold standard manifesto for a Japanese middle schooler in the late 1990’s to form dark and brooding power fantasies. “Hellsing: Ultimate” was mostly fun to look ...

Gal Gohan (Manga) add

70 were impressed!
10 found the handling of the material distasteful
10 thought the story was dragged out
10 didn’t think the romcom was particularly funny

If you are anything like me, you are hot for gyaru like a two-year-old is hot for dinosaurs. Don’t be dissuaded by my particularly harsh initial criticisms. Gal Gohan was an overall pleasant read and I think that if you are into this particular phenotype of JK-girl then this manga is required reading. I would say it wasn’t great, but it was certainly enjoyable, and enjoyable is worth the effort with a sub-100-chapter series in my book. Just note ...

5 didn’t like the one filler episode and old car CG

I was certainly apprehensive to dive in watching Stand Alone Complex after watching the original film and finding it to be such a masterpiece. Most of my memories of the show were from days of my youth watching adult swim. At that time, I would usually watch the Inner Universe OP, vibe to the strange lonely wistfulness it would instill in me, and then watch something else because I found the episodes too slow for my kid brain. Returning to watch the show properly now I found it to ...

Mob Psycho has finally come to an end. This final season adapts the remainder of the manga so it is here that I’m delighted to say that Mob Psycho has ended perfectly. For two season Mob delivered on all fronts stylistically and emotionally and in this final chapter Mob Bones continues that practice. The story in all aspects takes a Superman character and tells a story of a boy going through puberty and coming of age. The series contains some of the best Shonen battle animation I’ve ever seen sure, but the over-the-top animation is never the point of ...

10 were disappointed with the way the series just fizzled out

Honestly, I finished Kaguya when the final chapter was published over a month ago, but I’ve sort of just been sitting on writing this review trying to avoid having to put my foot down on any sort of opinion regarding it. Ultimately Kaguya was an entertaining read that did a lot that felt fresh to me although admittedly I am not much of a reader of rom-coms and high school romance plots so take that opinion as it is. The story was served best when it was sticking to ...

60 were happy to see one of their favorite manga adapted into an anime

1 IMPLORE you to read the manga

Chainsaw Man is by and far one of my favorite manga I’ve read in the last decade. I think no matter what my criticisms I may have in this preliminary review this adaptation will be loved by a LOT of people. From what I’ve seen the show has some truly impressive visuals, a great musical score, and very solid voice casting. In just the first few episodes ...
