As a manga reader of JJK I was curious to see how MAPPA will adapt this well-acclaimed arc But oh my word they made an 'absolute masterclass' of an adaptation.

Season 2 of JJK takes a step ahead of the shonen genre because not only it incorporates all the Shonen tropes you would recognise in battle stories; instead it gracefully deconstructs and puts a spin on them.

STORY: 9/10

This is the department that JJK improves in greatly. The storytelling in this arc was next to one because if we look back to Season 1 Episode 6 it greatly foreshadows when ...

"Oshi no Ko" (Anime) add
“By the time I was in a state to chase my dreams, I wasn’t at the age to chase my dreams”

Oshi no Ko is a brilliant manga that brings excellent themes of idolism and pop culture into reality. Despite different motivations, Aqua, Ruby and Kana’s key to success in the entertainment industry is the same; to achieve their goals, they need to play the game.

The staff’s passion gave birth to an industry-defying first episode that runs over eighty minutes in length. In recent years, it has not been uncommon to see a season or series premiere for an anime series receive an extended length, ...

What is the definition of Peak Fiction?

Answer: Vinland Saga

After the expansiveness of the first season of Vinland Saga, crossing continents as dramatizations of historic figures cross paths, it’s tempting to say that the anime’s second season is of a much smaller scale. But Vinland Saga season 2 feels epic in a different sense, as director Shūhei Yabuta and writer Hiroshi Seko deliver some of the series’ most breath-taking drama within the rather expansive boundaries of a farm. Since the first season, Thorfinn has been enslaved by a wealthy man who has styled himself as a benevolent slave owner, letting his indentured farmhands work off what ...

Chainsaw Man (Anime) add

CHAINSAW GOAL: Straight of the chainsaw we see an OVERLY UNIQUE and RELATABLE goal from Denji. He is a 16 year old boy who wants to be with a girl and live a normal life. We already start with a subversion trope already. (9/10)

CHAINSAW PRODUCTION: MAPPA, you are outstanding, 12 endings... 12 ENDINGS to incorporate the theme of every episode, that is such dedication and I love it because and it's chaotic writing and Tarantino-esque action overall is nothing short of phenomenal. (10/10)

CHAINSAW CHARACTERS: Denji is an intriguing protagonist who is masterfully written as a teenager striving for his goal. In ...

CAUTION: This review is based on the last three episodes of Mob Psycho 100 III and some parts of the last two seasons.

QUOTE MEANING: This quote above is the clear message lore of what Mob Psycho is all about. Across the three seasons you will learn about what it means to be a better person and rather not try to ...

"Fantastic Season Fantastic Anime Fantastic Series!"

The Fourth Season of the Seinen masterpiece (it is really) is nothing short of spectacular. I'm at lost for words how the story is being animated in such a caring way where it feels just like the artistry coloured manga panels of the series' manga.

Kingdom ANIMATION: 9/10

Really really good. The animators of this series stepped up their game after the former studios showed a rubbish display' of Season 1. From Season 2 onwards it has picked up and my word has it done just that. Season 2, Season 3 and Season 4 feels mature and well understood.

Kingdom STORY: 10/10

Phenomenal! It ...

Spy x Family (Anime) add
Preliminary (12/12 eps)
The Mother is an Assassin.
The Father is a Spy.
Their Daughter is an intellectual being
What sort of combination does this make?


(First Impressions)

The animation looked really good. It’s made by Cloverworks and Wit studios at the same time. I sighed and thought this is another typical family show. I see a girl, cute as she is getting adopted by this man who is going to become her father. How is their relationship going to play out? I see a woman with red eyes wanting to marry the man to become the mother of little girl. Is this to save face from the ...

Yo Malum how would you describe this third season of Love Is War?


The “Love is War” series is a very popular rom-com anime series, and its latest season became a hit right after its first episode.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War sticks mostly to the original manga. However, it occasionally follows its own chronological events in the story. This is due to the manga’s frequent flashbacks to specific events in Kaguya’s and other characters’ pasts, which are then integrated into the anime to allow for more linear storytelling.

However, the final major sections of the manga covered by Season 2 were Chapters 100 and 101, ...

This review contains mild spoiler from the last 3 episodes*

Five years after Yuri on Ice placed MAPPA on the sports anime scene, the studio is back at it with this spring season's sports drama Dance Dance Danseur, taking things off the ice and placing ballet under the spotlight. Once again, the studio is commendable for not just focusing on the sport itself but also the culture surrounding it, both positive and negative.

However, while Yuri on Ice was a show focused on individual struggles with depression, isolation and abandonment, Dance Dance Danseur looks at how society influences the individual, and in this particular case, how it ...

"Quirky but delightful"

Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is a comedic slice-of-life anime between a tall "scary" guy and a soft-spoken petite gal.

There are a ton of hilarious moments that are out of the cliché slapstick, at the very least I was taken by surprise by how wondrous this show truly is. Overall this anime has been great.

The relationships between both protagonists are really wholesome and I am eager to read the manga to see their journey as countless individuals have been telling me to have a look in my own spare time.

I definitely recommend this anime to anyone who just wants to sit and just experience the ...
