S.P.O.I.L.E.R.S. - Scammed Personally by Outstandingly and Incredibly Lame, Excessive, and Ridiculous Series

Full spoilers, at that, so don’t read if you haven’t seen it. And if you have, you probably like this series and will thus disagree with me. Basically, don’t read this review for any reason.

The anime industry seems to have finally learned that making sequels is a good idea, as many popular series are finally breaking their future-depriving curses: After many agonizing years, beloved anime like Bleach, Mahouka, Konosuba and Isekai Smartphone have all made highly anticipated recent comebacks, with even Spice and Wolf having something on the horizon. Of ...

“Both sides lose somebody. Somebody dies, somebody goes to jail.” --Kid Cudi

“AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA” --some goofy mf named mitch or something idk

Tokyo Revengers is an anime about middle school kids, but they’re actually RUFF N’ TUFF DUDES who spend most of their time punching people, riding motorcycles, and punching other people who also enjoy punching people and riding motorcycles. Given such a gritty subject matter that is rarely touched upon in shounen anime, it’s pretty clear to see why there’s so much hype for this series. And I certainly respect that.

But in reality, the display of violence and conflict in ToRev is comical, to put it ...

Minor spoilers I guess.

When something exists in our lives as raw goated swag peak fiction, all we want to do is talk up and down about why thing good so that everyone else can understand exactly how we feel. Unfortunately, reality is cruel and says that we’re not allowed to do this, because other people have feelings for some reason. We don’t have all day--well, THEY don’t, rather--to hear a 25-hour lecture on why thing good, so you condense and paraphrase it as much as possible to get to the heart of it, but only kind of making your point so that people ...

Fiction is all about perspective, and what can be taken from a piece of art will depend on the person viewing it. This is an incredibly generic opening statement that can be plastered onto any review for anything in existence, but such a primal notion is paramount to The Journey of Elaina. It’s a series that lives and dies by your appreciation of the main character, or lack thereof. It’s a collection of vignettes that can either move you, or have you mumbling “What the hell was the point of that?” at the end of twenty-two minutes.

“Who’s that hot witch who’s also a bad bitch? ...

Gotcha! (Anime) add
This is the greatest piece of animation ever constructed by human beings. It must be known that I am only guessing that human beings made this, because the nature of this video is so other-worldly amazing that it is not out of the question for it to have been made by celestial deities on a higher plane of existence. And also Bump of Chicken.

After merely two minutes and change, your eyes will be shitting out pieces of your brain. Your life will be forever changed and you'll temporarily forget the collapse of civilization occurring outside of your place of residence, because this video is ...

Magia Record is not Madoka 2.0.

I feel like that really needs to be said. Despite “side story” written in the title, being a part of the Madoka franchise comes with huge expectations--expectations that Magia Record never attempts to meet. This is not a sequel to Rebellion, nor an attempt at recreating the magic (heh) of Madoka. After all, the original was practically a statement for mahou shoujo and was such a groundbreaking and well-acclaimed series, you only really get one of it per genre.

This doesn’t excuse all of Magia Record’s potential faults, but I think a large wave of backlash towards it ...

[Spoiler Warning. The part I actually spoil is labeled later on, so you'll know when it happens. But I was forced to put a full spoiler warning at the top. I guess you can't be too... cautious... eh?? ...I hate this.]

“I get it. It ain’t making me laugh, but I get it.” --Meatwad (Aqua Teen Hunger Force)

Although I didn’t enjoy it all that much, I respect how Tueeeeeeeeeeeeeee repeats its own themes of caution within the writing by explaining every single joke and detail of the story. Even the title itself is an act of caution: ‘Cautious Hero: The ...

Goblin Slayer (Anime) add
Goblin Slayer makes me upset.

Not because of its content, mind you. But because THIS is what the community decided to make a whole brouhaha for, rassling endlessly about how “DAE RAPE IS BAD???”

Now, I apologize, we’ll talk about the show itself in a hot minute or two. But the community discussion of Goblin Slayer really is integral to the series itself. Like an album cycle from Kanye West, public reaction is all part of the seasonal anime paradigm, after all. Even if this anime is lost to the weight of time (read: four months), it should be noted that this anime ...

It’s hard to say why exactly this is a bad movie, because, at the end of the day, I’m not really sure what this is supposed to be.

At first glance, it looks like it’s a remake (of sorts) of The Power of One, the second Pokemon movie. The title “The Power of Us” is a great mirror of that and it stars Lugia as the centerpiece. Except it’s not. This movie isn’t about Lugia, it’s about Zeraora. So if you think this new Electric-type fursona looks super cool, then this movie’s gonna be up your alley 10/10.

So let’s throw all immediate comparisons out the window. ...

It’s only stupid if it doesn’t work.

Nowadays, the shows I fight to defend are highly misunderstood because their appeal is too specific, causing the general audience to flaunt their standards around like they’re supposed to mean anything. Past examples include Mahou Shoujo Site, Jashin-chan Dropkick and Hand Shakers. Yet, Happy Sugar Life is a different sort of… thing, whose plot setup is about as logically sound as riding a lawnmower during a hurricane, seemingly leaving not but a select, niche appeal for the sickos like me.
