Recovery of an MMO junkie makes an attempt to portray the nature of online relationships and how to bond with people when you don't know their real name or even their real gender. It shows how a MMO can be a place to go when you aren't happy with the situation of your real life and why so many people become addicted to this feeling without portraying it as something completely bad. A strong reason for that is the fact that the protagonist stresses that she isn't someone who became addicted but someone who chose to spend their life gaming and staying isolated at home. read more

Dagashi Kashi has potential, but fails in fully using it. Its cast is way too good compared to the rest of the show.

I feel that the show could have been really good if it weren´t for its focus on the candy - the core component of the show. What we got is a series of 24 minute commercials for japanese sweets with occasional good parts, the moment when the focus was on the characters and not on the sweets. The cast consists of only 5 people with a strong focus on Kokonotsu and Hotaru. There is a reason that Hotaru has more favorites on MAL read more

Koe no katachi tells the story of a deaf girl and her bully who gets bullied himself, realizes what he has done and tries to make up for his behaviour. I have read the manga and think that KyoAni did a pretty good job of adapting it while there are indeed some problems in the adaptation which I will talk about later in this review.

The movie deals with some heavy topics like bullying, depression and suicide, but it portrays them as something normal, it´s part of the characters everyday life. As the story continues, we learn more about the past of the characters and their read more

Yona of the Dawn is a story about a girl and her group of overpowered love interests going on a journey to win against the guy who killed Yona's father, the old king, and became the new king. The target audience is obviously female, but men should be able to enjoy the story. The story is as generic as it can get, it's another story of a teenager going out in the world and becoming stonger with the help of their friends. Here, the focus lies on an additional problem: Yona can't hate Su-won, her childhood love, even if he betrayed her. At first, you read more

Raising kids can be difficult, even more so when you have to raise them alone. Sweetness and Lightning is about the single father Kouhei who struggels to care for his daughter Tsumugi after his wife passed away. He really tries his best, but especially fails at cooking, so he has to buy premade meals, which Tsumugi tolerates but she misses the great cooking of her mother.

The story is told in two parts every episode. The first part is about the father and his daughter dealing with some problem, and in the second part they cook something, often something the mother used to make. So the read more

K-On! (Anime) add (All reviews)
Every genre has its entries that define how you should do a show of this genre. K-On! is the king of CGDCT/Slice of Life-Moe anime and shows what to expect of the genre, it gives a good idea of if the genre is for you.

Personally, I don’t need a great story of any story at all in a CGDCT anime or even basic things like character development. A good CGDCT-show can focus on its two main aspects: The cute girls and the cute things they are doing. Add some music of magic or any other fun thing, it should be fun, and you are on read more

The setting of Beyound the Boundary is really simple: There are monsters and guys that kill monsters. The comedy is created from the character traits of the cast: The protagonist really, really likes girls with glasses, the girl who tries to kill him is a shy girl with glasses. The best friend of the protagonist is really, really obsessed with his little sister, so they fantasize together about the little sister and what she would look like with glasses. This style of comedy is very simple, but at least not terrible. Beyond the boundary manages to at least write comedy that makes sense from what read more

While time travel is often used as a lazy plot device, there are some shows that are about time travel and are able to add something new to the topic that even the first human person thought about after regretting the decision to cuddle the saber-toothed tiger.
Steins;Gate is a story about time travel and its problems. Sure, it might be nice to simply revert time and try again, but can we change fate? How many times will we fail before giving up?

The story follows the protagonist Okabe, an useless member of society and his friends, the "super-hacker" Daru and Okabe´s childish childhood friend Mayuri. The read more
