(Major Spoilers)

I don't have much to say that's already been said. I was initially captivated by the origin of the Sailor's powers and wanted to know how much story could be told with so many episodes. I of course later found out it was simply a case of the manga being popular, so they were able to afford tons of filler episodes. In fact, if you add up all of the fully canon episodes, you get the usual twelve episodes, or "twelve episode curse" as I like to moniker anime doomed to not have more episodes than that. It also has five that are mixed, read more

[Spoiler Warning]

I could draw similarities to other romances, but the whole theme of this anime is one character does not know how to love and the other loves her. I could draw similarities to Sakura Trick, but only that one of their main characters shares the name Yuu and is the hesitant one in the relationship, well the one who is the most amorous is the long-haired one. But, I will be more blunt.

The romance idea is interesting, but if this anime really has the twelve episode curse (always call the thirteenth episode a "bonus" episode since most anime typically have twelve for the sake read more

[Spoiler Warning]

I actually do not have very much to say about this at all, but figured I would anyway. Yes, for me anyway, this is not much to say.

Act 1: All of the girls are having a good time, they talk about sex all of the time, it is really funny.

Act 2: Somebody begins to realize they have feelings for somebody, they are literally unable to handle it and nothing but confusion happens.

Final Act: They try to jumble up all of the stress the characters are having into a stress-induced finale. Coming off as comically strong, but ultimately falling flat with very unsatisfying conclusions throughout.

Basically, read more

(MAJOR SPOILERS FOR CLANNAD MOVIE, ANIME AND GAME)

Alright, unpopular opinion time. I think the Clannad movie is better than the anime. But, before you chew me out, at least read why I am saying this.

Okay, so I have known Clannad for a fairly long time now. I know that even the anime gets criticized for not following the game as faithfully as it could. I understand there is now way in hell a movie could do it better. However, the movie deviating from the plot of the game is exactly why I favor it over the anime. Allow me to explain.

The movie knows it won't read more

It's nice to have specials that genuinely feel like more episodes of the anime. Biggest disappointments with them are that some of the plots here would have made for some nice, full-length episodes. Most notably, the siblings of Tanaka and Oota, Rino and Saya. They really did not get very much screen time at all in the anime, so seeing them have a dedicated special felt sad due to how short these are. The special with the WacDonald's worker, Saionji, felt like it fit the short length of the specials the most.

I enjoyed my time with all of these, and at the end of the read more

Hmm, I noticed someone has already written a nice, concise review for the anime. I feel I would make Tanaka proud if I could describe it more simply, so I will do so for the more nonchalant reader.

Tanaka sits around all day. Ohta (how the subs spelled it, anyway) helps him so that he does not linger in one spot for too long. He has two generic male friends, one of which believes he is a lady killer. Tanaka sometimes does things. He gets into such petty trouble that it's laughable at how non-troublesome it actually is by comparison of normal human standards. The piano read more

This is a pretty hard one to write. I don't want to scoff any of the points I've thought about well watching this anime, so I hope I can convey every thought I want here. Firstly, even though there's a lot of them, I want to address the negatives right away this time. This review will be spoiler heavy, so I will cut off here with a short, non-spoiler version to start off. Then separate it from the main, spoiler review with a visible warning from when it starts.

Hmm, explaining the entire context concisely without spoilers. Uh, let's see, the main character loves to study, read more

Initially, I felt indifferent towards the Girls und Panzer. I gave it a fairly mediocre rating and moved on from it, almost forgetting it entirely. I had the interest of re-watching it with one of my friends after seeing their growing curiosity toward it, as well as my interest to remember why I rated something like this as low as I did. Needless to say, part of my opinion changed, but not all of it. Most of this won't be too unique from what NotDolphy has already summed up pretty well, but do read on if you desire. Though, it will contain spoilers.

Here, we face your typical harem anime. Normally, I put them down the moment I notice it's barely going very far from the genre, but I had faith. The first episode of this anime opened alright, with our male lead being pretty confident through the typical "accidental" situations you're used to in these anime. Take those quotations strongly, because every veteran harem fan knows why I put them there. Nothing is ever an accident in harems to the females.

Because of how rough this anime is to me, I don't even want to talk about it very much, because it barely does anything different from another read more

Yeah, so I probably shouldn't write too long about something that you will finish in about the same time you finish reading this.

I watched this anime today, on Christmas day, and have no current show I am watching. Then comes along an anime about a cat owner who owns the kind of cats that most anime fans wish they could own, literally being little girls that have some cat features and like the same things they do. No sense in going over a character synopsis this time around, since there's not that many things going on.

The cat girls are adorable, the length of the anime read more
