Zankyou no Terror is a show which is praised by many. Mostly for its premise and the themes of teenagers blowing up buildings instead of peeking on girls. It’s definitely not your everyday anime and even for me it has been a pleasant surprise as I started watching it, with high expectations that is, after having read that top staff is working on the show. I couldn’t wait until I finally got to watch the show, and now, one season later: Was this show really that good? In short: No. But let me explain why, before you downvote my review, if you haven’t already by read more

Everywhere I go here on MAL I see people praising this show. 10s are almost the standard since this show aired. Almost impossible to escape to the hype surrounding this anime I found myself watching the first episode even though I am against fan-fiction like stories such as this one. So, what do I think of the show?

Well, it has been quite a bumpy road with No Game No Life for me. A surprisingly weak start with almost every cliché in just two or three episodes a pandering show like this could ever contain and more headshakes I ever did when watching anime since Sword read more

Yay! Cute girls doing cute things now in lesbian middle school girls-edition!
When I first found out about Yuru Yuri I was trying to look for something that is kind of against the norm of just presenting cute girls doing cute things. Something that would spice things up a bit. Of course my first intention for such a thing was not Yuri and I also legitimately thought at first that the whole Yuri-theme was just some joke despite the obvious title.

Well let's take a look at what Yuru Yuri has in stock.

Storywise there really isn't anything happening which hasn't been done before - except read more

This season was not really full of surprises. Just as always some light novel adaptions here and manga adaptions there. What I really missed when overlooking the chart of currently airing anime was something fresh which sounded interesting. Of course being a show about a card game, Selector Infected Wixoss did not catch my attention at first at all. Only when I realized that this season isn't close to being good and I even started watching a sports anime about ping pong I thought to myself "Hey, why not check out this anime with the cute girls playing cards?".

I can tell you beforehand, missing read more

An anime about sports? An anime about ping pong? I would have never thought to ever give a show like this a try, while I do like the occasional play of table tennis in my freetime and during sports at school the idea of watching others playing it in the animated form was somewhat dull but interesting. Having heard from other sources that it is actually quite good and among the best series of this season I decided to check Ping Pong: The Animation out.

Today it has ended and now I'm sitting here at midnight writing this review because continuing Ping Pong after a long read more

Getting sucked into an Online MMORPG, having adventures with your life on the line each day, meeting new people and having an excuse to escape real life while building up a romance in it with a beautiful girl and being the strongest amongst everyone. Sounds like the wish every puberty ridden and anime-/videogames loving teenager has. It's no use explaining how Sword Art Online features all of this since 90% of you have already seen it anyway or at least have heard of it in one way or another. While most of the otaku-community probably wetted their beds in excitement for this show I gave read more

I once read that war is supposedly the most efficient way of pushing technology on a higher level. This doesn't seem to be too untrue in the universe of Ghost in the Shell since it already has four world wars in total behind itself - one being a nuclear one; hence the technology within itself has sky-rocketed to incredible dimensions.
The line between man and machine gets blurrier with each day and if Ghost in the Shell is popular for something that is not being a stellar piece of cyber-punk it is for the question what even makes us human. Broken body-parts can be just read more

Most of the things I get from harem anime without actually watching them is that as good as everyone is basically the same. From the basic premise, over the characters, the setting and most likely the whole conclusion, mostly everything has been done before. This is one of the reasons I don't usually get my eyes on such anime. Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai is an exception though because a very good friend of mine recommended it. "Might as well give it a try", I thought, "It only has 12 episodes, it's something different from the previous stuff I watched and it's on my HDD read more

Angel Beats seems to be one of the most popular anime series amongst newcomers in the world of anime. It was the same with me. Angel Beats was my very first "real" anime besides television shows such as Naruto or Yugioh. What does it have to offer? Let's take a look.

Let's split up this review into the five categories as usual:

Story (6/10):

The general premise seemed interesting. A boy without memories wakes up in an afterlife which is a high school alongside other classmates with real personalities and so called "NPCs". The story centers around our main protagonist but also on the events which happened to read more

Trigger's highly acclaimed Kill la Kill came to a tremendous end in March and now that the dust has settled I thought it may be the perfect time to unfold it once again for my review. Let's take a look if the hype behind this show is justified or not.

A plot summary has already been given in the detail section of the information page so I won't be doing one - it's literally one click away.

Let's split up this review into the five categories as usual:

Story (6/10):

Coming from a studio which participated in the making of the well-known Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and taking a read more
