I actually thought this piece of crap was pretty funny. Don't get me wrong, from a story and character development point of view, this show is an absolute dumpster fire. But, whether by accident or by design, Conception hit that sweet spot of "so bad it's good" for me.

Story 2/10 (This section contains spoilers, but why the hell would you care?)
So the story is that some dude gets isekai'd and has to perform a "love ritual" with a dozen girls to give birth to "star children" to fight "impurity lords". That premise is cringy as fuck and it really sets the tone for just how read more

Princess Principal is an anime that tries to do a lot of different things and does all of them very well. I was impressed and immersed with this anime from start to finish and I definitely want more. Even though the ending isn't conclusive (and there are sequels planned), this anime really does feel like the complete package. Let's take a look at why I feel that way.

Story
This anime is ultimately the story of a group of friends (especially two friends in particular) doing everything in their power to stay together in a cruel world trying to tear them apart while also undertaking dangerous missions read more

If I had to describe this anime in one short phrase it'd be "shallow entertainment of the highest caliber". I don't know that I've ever seen a more simplistic, straightforward, dare I even say cookie cutter harem/action/school/comedy anime, at least not one I enjoyed this greatly. Still though, this anime knows what kind of show it is and I had a blast binging it.

One thing that makes Armed Girl's Machiavellianism (that's the first and only time I'm typing out that long-ass word in this review) stand out among its peers of the generic harem/action genre is that fact that effort was clearly put into the read more

The first three seasons of High School DxD were one of the first anime I ever watched. Coming back two and a half years later to watch DxD Hero after having branched out my anime horizons far beyond their ecchi and harem roots and having heard some pretty mixed reviews about this season, I didn't know how it would hold up. Well, this season exceeded my expectations and I had an absolute blast watching it, to me it's every bit as good as its predecessors.

Story, 6/10 (Good)
I've never been one to hold story and character development to too high a standard in ecchi/comedy/harem anime or read more

Moetan (Anime) add (All reviews)
Moetan currently stands as the lowest rated anime on MAL that I have given this high of a rating to and honestly, it's deserved. This may well be the stupidest magical girl anime in existence (unless you consider Dokuro-chan a mahou shoujo) but that's precisely why I find it so funny. Let's take a look at why this is one of my favorite pieces of trash.

Story 4/10
A loli-loving man from a parallel universe gets banished from his world and turned into a duck so that he can help a high school senior that looks half as old as she actually is teach people English by read more

Preliminary
Huge Symphogear fan here, so don't expect a very unbiased review. Although I can't imagine why you'd be watching season 5 of Symphogear if you didn't like the first four unless you're one hell of a completionist or are being forced to watch against your will (which isn't an entirely unrealistic scenario given the intensity of Symphogear fans when trying to get others to watch).

Story: 7/10
The story of XV is more of the same yet completely unpredictable because "more of the same" in Symphogear means more batshit insanity and over-the-top action and badassery. Without spoiling too much, we get new villains this season who somehow read more

Preliminary
Whether or not you've seen the anime, Gabriel DropOut is definitely a manga worth trying if you're a fan of the CGDCT (cute girls doing cute things) and/or comedy genres. If you HAVE seen the anime and want more, then I'll tell you right now that the manga's quality is about the same as the anime and that should be enough to tell you it's worth reading.

Story: There really isn't one. Gabriel DropOut is a mostly episodic series about angels and demons and their everyday lives on Earth (and occasionally heaven or hell). There are occasions where new characters are introduced and the characters' relationships read more

Contains spoilers (not super-specific ones, but general, non-specific parts of the story)

Originality is often overrated. It can be mind-blowing, groundbreaking, and even thought-provoking when it's done well, but I've seen many anime (or works in any creative medium for that matter) that present an interesting premise only to become something dull and unengaging because the execution and/or development of the unique ideas was poor. A super unique and original show simply cannot be good or better without high quality execution of its ideas, story, and concepts. My Hero Academia, however, is proof that standard fare can be very enjoyable and pretty damn good when it's read more

This show was so bad that it almost makes me feel sorry for the other series I have rated as 1 because they have to share the rating with this steaming pile of fecal matter. Take the absolutely shitty quality of Mars of Destruction and Tenkuu Danzai Skelter Heaven and add all the generic harem tropes you can think of with a constant barrage of the most off-putting fanservice imaginable and you have Eiken. I'm a big fan of fanservice, even when it's over the top in shows like Bikini warriors, but the fanservice in Eiken is simply unpleasant to look at. Character designs are read more

When it comes to writing reviews, comedy is probably the most subjective genre because everyone has a different sense of humor. You can be somewhat objective in explaining why a drama (or some other plot-driven genre) is poorly done by pointing out holes in the story or other such contrivances, but with comedy all you can say is "I didn't find it funny because x, y, and z." The thing is, someone else with a different sense of humor may find it to be hilarious precisely because of the aspects you don't like.

I found Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan to be pretty hilarious. The humor is juvenile, read more
