The Monogatari series is one that has alluded me for some time. Like with Durarara!, the hype train came and gone. Their anime both- astonishingly- adapted all the volumes of their source materials, and have long since fully aired. However, they looked so charming that I HAD to try the originals for the sake of the fact that I really don't care for anime that much. And finally, in 2019, I slowly sunk my teeth into the first third of the Monogatari franchise.

Story AND Characters- What Even is This?/10

This is a strange series. Basically, we have a supernatural slice-of-life, similar to Durarara! Except unlike Durarara!'s read more

With the movie adaptation of this coming out in the next couple of months, I might as well insert my five yen on the manga. Which I read almost a year ago. ...Fortuantely, I know what I thought of it then, and I know what I think of it now! And hoo boy, what an amazing manga this is!

Story- ACTUALLY Deep/10

There are a lot of works of fiction that people consider deep that I... don't. To a lot of people, human life is unequivocally fascinating and complex. Personally, I find human life to be overrated, and this manga's speaking my language! What starts out as read more

Preliminary
I said in my previous MAL review of this series (which will have been deleted by yours truly by now) that Goblin Slayer had a strong idea for a premise, but that same premise would lead it into a repetitive and boring slog. Well, six volumes into the series, and it's already hit that point!

Story- What Story?!/10

In case you haven't heard of the anime that set the anime community ablaze last fall, let me tell you about the light novel that inspired it. Goblin Slayer takes a unique approach to fantasy in not being about chosen ones who go on grand quests, saving elf maidens, read more

Kasane (Manga) add (All reviews)
I first thought that this manga would be a trashy, edgy, romantic tragedy. Well, I was right about it being edgy. Let's begin the review.

Kasane is a very strange and twisted manga. There are a lot of disturbing themes in this, mostly involving women. It's no Goblin Slayer, but since apparently no work of art is allowed to make anyone feel even mildly disturbed these days, I still must warn you in advance.

The story was a lot better than I expected. It's a bit slow in the first volume, leading you to believe that it's going to be a repetitive 'steal this girl's face read more

Well, didn't expect this show to be split cour! I bet a lot of people are disappointed, but hey, I'm going to Disney in a week so if it weren't for this I'd be missing a couple of episodes lol! So I might as well write a review...

Art and Sound- Same Ol' 9/10: Despite how WIT should be grasping at straws production-wise, this actually looks and feels like the best season so far (although second cour could prove that wrong). Also a lot of the best animations this show has offered thus far are present here.

The voice acting is the same. Since there's more character read more

I'd hate to say that this series' staggering number of critics had the last laugh in the end. Well, they won't have it this season, that's for sure. But I had a number of issues with this season compared to the previous ones that have me worried that they will have that last laugh in the forseeable future.

First let me just knock out the carry-over attributes of this season right away. The story and characters- provided you actually ARE a fan of BNHA in the first place- are still as excellent as ever. It does nothing new, but does everything well (I hope I'm the read more

Man, my feelings toward this anime- though mostly positive- are extremely complicated, which isn’t helped by the fact that I played the visual novel first. So get your popcorn, cuz this review’s gonna be a while! Also, there will be spoilers regarding the original Steins;Gate in this review, since you’re supposed to have played/watched it first anyway.

Story- 9/10: So first, I need to establish context for this anime since no official description of it helps in that regard. Remember episode 23 of the original series, when Okarin was about to give up on saving Kurisu? Right then and there, he obtained a video D-Mail from read more

I cannot comprehend how people felt when they first tuned into this second season of Shingeki no Kyojin, back after four years of absence. However, I can probably comprehend how they felt after finishing it. Based on my own experience, they probably felt...

...disappointment. Well, at least for 50% of the show.

Art: Same as Before/10- I guess it's bad that a show from 2017 looks no different than a show from four years ago (at least it's better than a CERTAIN show from this year that looks WORSE than a certain show from SEVEN years ago). But considering that WIT Studio has been famously in the read more

I know you're not supposed to have spoilers in a review. But given how the reputation of this manga has been pretty much tarnished entirely because of its ending, I will need to divulge some minor spoilers in this review. You've been warned.

Story- 7/10: You don't need to look twice at the synopsis to realize the following about Prison School: It is a dirty, dirty manga. But this manga is different from most ecchi manga for a very specific reason.

That reason is the insanely serious presentation. All of the really naughty and dirty scenarios that take place throughout Prison School are intentionally given way too read more

ReLIFE (Manga) add (All reviews)
I've been recently developing a jealousy toward the Slice of Life genre. These days it feels like the only kind of manga/anime that can ever get a positive consensus anymore are super subdued, comfortably paced, character driven emotional dramas or comedies which have easily relatable characters and also touch on real life social and emotional issues. But on the other side of the coin, it's still a genre with a lot of great titles under it and this manga is one of them.

Story- 8/10: This is your standard highschool-based slice of life with a twist, twist being the adult main character. But unlike doing something read more
