I don't think I've ever seen an action scene as good as the one that I've seen from here. The part that I enjoy the most is just the straight up choreophraphy. The art and animation alone, especially for an action scene as intense as this, raises my enjoyment and score so high.

This is just the prologue, and comes out with a bang. It sets the tone for the rest the series. Rin is such a likeable character and it's nice to get to finally see her side of the story while these events are happening. Archer comes off as a badass, reliable, and ...

This is a decent anime that has stood memorable for me. I'm actually surprised that there are so many positive reviews for this anime.
Why don't I rate it any higher? Well, I just haven't found the reasons to see why it's a particularly impressive piece of work; that's about it.
But it never felt like a bane to me to watch Boku wa Tomodachi; I enjoyed it. And I think that's an important part in why I guess the lot of us were able to enjoy this anime.
My only main gripes are that the main male is too unflawed to be fleshed out of ...

What keeps the Dragon Ball series alive is its gigantic fanbase that has developed ever since the 1990's. Dragon Ball Z is perhaps the father of shounen. Although, the amount of popularity for a source of entertainment doesn't necessarily always infer its quality.

The more serious of anime consumers have watched hundreds of anime and spent months watching anime. And by spending months, I mean literally 2000+ hours (that would be equivalent to watching anime 3 months straight without eating, sleeping, etc) worth of watching anime. With most of them critiquing anime seriously.
By contrast, you have reviewers on here, perhaps having little knowledge of ...

One of Bakemonogatari's main purpose is the exploration of its concept regarding the supernatural. In addition to this, Bakemonogatari heavily focuses on dialogue that gives a heavy sense of social realism and realistic character traits we see in everyday humans.
For the conflicts that happen throughout the story, the lessons are meant to be learned figuratively. Things that happen within the plot feel satisfying due to unique character actions and interactions that feel realistic and understandable.
There is very little generalization upon any one character besides Sengoku Nadeko. However, this problem is washed away upon Second Season where her character blooms fully. Every other character feels unique, ...

Review (December 2017) on Harmonie

A 9 or a 10... It's a decision I have to make.
But Neal, why those two? Nine and Ten? A 10 is a masterpiece. Does this short film even deserve such a score? No one's going to have the same perception as that!
Whatever the case may be, I have finally decided to give my answer, one that I feel is an objectively subjective analysis, meaning that this is appropriate in my own system of principles.

Even with that being said, I am not going to talk about Story, Art/Animation, Sound, Character, and Enjoyment. Those things are simple to perceive. I could go ...

This review will be about the significance of what makes this series exceptional, with emphasis on Otorimonogatari, the Nadeko Medusa arc. Basically, I will be discussing the brilliance of how this anime tells its story in a way that we can subconsciously understand. I will not be taking the traditional approach and grade the Story, Art/Animation, Sound and Character, but I do have my reasons for their score. If you are interested in them, you can message me.

Disclaimer: This review is not spoiler-free.

This is a series not necessarily concerning oddities, but more about human beings and their interactive role that deals with or produces oddities. ...

Cencoroll (Anime) add
Mixed Feelings
The anime starts off with a giant alien blob appearing on top of a skyscraper in a city where our two protagonists reside. Shortly after, these two meet when our female protagonist Yuki discovers that our male protagonist Tetsu is in possession of one of these blob alien creatures, of which he has his named as "Cenco". His creature specializes in transformation.

Cencoroll is quite an average film individually from its yet-to-be released sequel, featuring an interesting premise, but lacking in.. well.. lots of stuff. Most of the time the anime is silent with no soundtracks. People who are fond of music utilization in anime will ...

Before I start the review, I'd just like to state that I have no previous knowledge of Kantai Collection, so this review is going to be based solely upon the anime TV series with no background knowledge of its universe.

Presentation: The anime presents itself exclusively with moe girls. At first, making wonder about the existence of males.
As the anime progresses, we come to find that these girls and women are based on ships. Although they look like ordinary human beings, these moe girls ultimately possess battleship properties such as resting, sinking & etc (to sink means death).

The characters for the most part are one-dimensional besides ...

Hells... wow that art is really unique. Beyond the art however, you find that the story at times is special within its own right, yet lacking in its bipolar plot. Personally, I enjoyed the few aspects of the story. The story I guess you could say... is a form of art: making you think of literature and such (it gets quite metaphoric in the second half, although that's not entirely a good thing because it's so different from the first half). And if you're interested in Cain/Abel references, then that's a cool bonus for you.

The art seems pretty retro and possibly low budget, ...

Firstly, I would just like to say that this anime adaptation of the Guyver manga is incomplete. Therefore it leaves you unfinished at the end and you will have to read the manga if you want to see the rest. So depending on the person, the score may be lower if having to continue the story via reading the manga is a critical negative to you.

The story of this anime is actually quite believable in that there is this secret corporation, called Chronos, that plans on obtaining world power (similar to the "Illuminati"). Unlike other anime that rely on magic and supernatural, this one is ...
