Life (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Summary:

Without exaggeration I will start this review with this: Life is one of the best stories I've ever read/watched. That's a big statement. Not only was it realistic and serious, it was heart-touching, and focuses on an issue that is already important in the US, but even more important in Japan where it was published.

The frightening thing about this manga is that it is not fantasy. In this story the enemy is not magical in nature and the challenge isn't to defeat some opponent in battle.

Another (Anime) add (All reviews)
Put simply, the anime adaptation for Yukito Ayatsuji's thriller/horror novel "Another" is amazing. This is one anime which at least I could not "put down" and take a break from.

Before I begin this review I'd like to clarify one point: Angel Beats! had a lot of potential. In fact, it had enough potential to have an overall score of 10 rather than 6.

So why then is the score for this show so low? The answer lies in a series of weaknesses that lowered the quality of what could have a been an otherwise great anime.

When I first watched Evangelion in my middle school days, I was as any other person who watched the series. I liked it, yet I thought there were things that could have been done better. I came to be attached to the characters, although I found them annoying in some ways. Evangelion is not a perfect story. Yet it was an amazing story, and more than all else, it was different. I am a complete sucker for moe animes, to a certain extent, but I cannot stomach what Evangelion has become: Nothing more than fanservice for people who like to do very little thinking and read more
