Preliminary
What stands out most about Re:Creators is how insanely goddam boring it manages to be. The premise, fictional characters entering the "real" world, isn't particularly unique, stock/stereotypical characters

Story: 1
Well, I suppose this is where I complain about how the characters spend 90% of the screentime chatting about things that don't matter, are completely irrelevant to the plot and useless to the audience; things that nobody gives a shit about; and things that are just brain-numbingly boring. Hell, even when a character is alone with nobody to talk to, they'll do a monologue about it instead. It's just plain shit, filled with meaningless dialogue.

Berserk (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Please note: this review is a warning, and is focused primarily upon the start of the manga. The manga is, of an overwhelming proportion, garbage, would be the warning. Don't take this lightly. And don't think I'm being unfair to the manga; this is merely the objective truth.

This manga is thoroughly terrible in nearly every possible way; art (ugly and disgusting), story (there is none), and characters (stock characters with no depth, ego, or even self-awareness).

The art: Comparing the artwork in chapter 318 with that in chapter 3, Guts somehow managed to get uglier (ever so slightly), and the thought of seeing his ugly read more

What is Keijo!!!!!!!!? Essentially, it's what you get when you weaponize T&A (boobs and butts), essentially making asses out to be extremely lethal weapons. Throw in the universal shounen, "rise to the top" plot, and there you have it—And yes, Keijo!!!!!!!! does take the plot, the asses, and the sport itself, very seriously, and with a straight face, characters will absolutely comment on how overpowered ones' particular ass may be. Naturally, expect tons of incidental "fanservice" as a result of weapon choice. If what you really want to see is mad gymastics do T&A, and T&A doing mad gymastics, martial arts, and more, this is read more

I'm writing this review based on my impressions of the first few episodes, and what I know about the manga and LN. Its unfortunate, but this anime is probably already hopeless.

In a NUTshell (NUT is the apparently new studio responsible for this), this anime has failed. The art is crap, the animation is crap, the screenplay is crap, the sound is crap, and the voice acting is crap. No amount or quality of plot could possibly make up for this.

Can be said as simply as this: "What the hell did they do to the main characters' faces?" The art is extremely basic and lacking read more

Drifters combines various well-known tropes, bringing famous historical figures into a fantasy world, and pitting them against eachother in all-out war. If you don't like war or watching heads roll, you're probably in the wrong place.

The animation is amazing, the soundtrack fits perfectly, the main characters (feudal Japanese warriors) have very well developed personalities, while still staying impressively faithful to how they actually were in history, and the plot illustrates an unabridged version of early-modern Japanese warfare.
Overally, the anime is unbelievably excellent (for its genre, and in production quality); I'm not too keen on the details, but the studio, "Hoods Drifters Studio" appears to have read more

Preliminary
So first off, I'd just like everyone to know, that this manga does not contain the ripping of any virgins, LOL. If you were looking for some horrible kinky hentay shit that involves ripping virgins, you're out of luck
But yeah, the title's a huge misnomer, because "reaper" is pronounced the same way (as ripper).

Anyhow, it's about some reaper, who's a virgin at reaping (reaping souls), probably because she gets ridiculously sidetracked instead. It's pretty average as far as manga goes; about as average as it gets I guess? Pretty typical shoujo-esque manga. The outfits actually kinda stand out as somewhat interesting, but yeah, average aside read more

Major distinction that must be made for the sake of rational thought:

"WIXOSS is a copy of/very similar to Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magicka." No, it's not. It's like saying Windows is a copy of Macintosh.

Yes, WIXOSS does share have some obvious similarities in plot structure to Madoka, but it's really NOT COMPARABLE. I could go on and on about this, but I'll keep it simple. WIXOSS has a more intricate plot, more characters, more character development, is more relatable, and most importantly, has distinct themes that are human driven (and less plot driven). Madoka has otherworldly creatures driving its plot forward. Despite what initially appears to read more

Seiken Tsukai no World Break appears to be like any other typical ecchi and harem anime with a bit of action mixed in, but any experienced anime watcher would notice that it's very poorly made. If one thing killed this anime, I'd have to say it was the animation.

Story: 6
I'm sure the light novel had a story of some sort, otherwise it wouldn't sell, and probably wouldn't be adapted into an anime either. The premise is pretty interesting, as I've heard many say, but they don't really do anything with it. The story here seems to be secondary to the characters acting out their (mostly read more

So recently, a lot more light novels have been adapted to anime (as well as manga), to varying success (They didn't do it much before because of how poor the adaptations were, like Densetsu Yuusha). Most of them add a lot more fanservice than the originals, probably to give them some value in the case they turn it into complete garbage (ideal example of this is the second season of Infinite Stratos). Hitsugi no Chaika is another one of these adaptations, though it is quite different from its peers.

Story: 9
While it's nice that the synopsis doesn't really spoil anything, it doesn't actually tell you anything read more

Preliminary
Knight Run is set in interstellar war between humans and monsters, and is very true to the nature and reality of war; it is a story full of the suffering and loss that always come with wars. While progress of the war is a significant part of the manhwa, the strongest element of Knight Run's plot is the characters' feelings and emotions; their drive and their priorities throughout the events of the story. Though there is still a heavy emphasis on fighting equipment, ships, and abilities, everything is detailed in almost every aspect.

The pace is somewhat slow, but constant throughout the entire manhwa, following mostly read more
