The summer 18 anime season is one of the worst anime seasons I have ever seen period. Yes the summer 18 anime gave some shows that I really liked such as Banana Fish, Planet With, High Score Girl and Grand Blue but at the same time it was a season that gave us a bunch of anime shovel-where to a point it overweight the good meaning this was indeed a shovel-ware anime season. Seven Senses of the Reunion is the embodiment of the summer 18 seasonal anime shovel-ware because not this is fudmulatlly awful in every way possible but it simply does not care read more

If I had a choice to killed off a genre it would be Isekai. Out of all the anime genres the Isekai genre seemed to be the one to annoy me to end due to how poorly written and pandering most of the shows of the Isekai genre are. Say all you want about ecchi + harems but least they are for the most part dump fun shows that respect its own target audience not to mention most of the ecchi + harems anime are self aware of how cheesy and for the most part bad they are. However this self awareness rarely happens happens read more

If there is one thing I hate about in any medium it would be cash-grabs to existing and popular properties.

Cash-grabs, in general, is just a shitty scheme for companies in any medium to make poorly done squeals, to having unnecessary remakes and spinoff of existing properties. 95% of the time cash-grabs to popular works fail because not only do the companies would often run out of ideas but they will also heavily milk that cow even when it’s dead. Assassin’s Creed is the worst example of this. For a series that I use to love has now turned a milking cow for Ubisoft where after read more

“If you trip while running down a hallway, you’ll get a nosebleed. If you trip in life, you’ll cry”. Minori Kushieda Toradora.

Toradora is a special anime for me. It was not only one of the two anime that introduced me to the romcom genre back in 2012 the other one being Clannad but it was the first romcom anime that I ever loved. I loved it so much that when I eventually started to buy animes DVDs back in 2015 Toradora was the third anime I brought. From that point on I re-watched Toradora least 2 to 3 times per year and I still read more

After watching the horrendously bad final 5 episodes of Darling in the Franxx where it ripped off so many elements from many mecha series from the past I decided to go back and re-watch Gunbuster.  A series that I use to hate on my first watch back in 2012. However, as time went and I re-watched it over the course of 2016 and onward I started to like and appreciate the series a lot and also no surprise after my latest re-watch of Gunbuter where I finished the final episode a day after the final episode of Darling in the Franxx. I can definitely say read more

As a fan of both Kiki Delivery Service and Little Witch Academia OVA + TV, I was really forward for watching Mary and the Witch Flower because I thought it was going to be another magical experience based on the trailers that I saw as well constant advertisements on many Local Underground stations across London.  When the movie came out in cinemas in the UK I immediately went to my local cinema and decided to watch it with a big smile on my face. However, as soon as I left the cinema I was not smiling at all. I was pretty sad and disappointed about read more

Kino’s Journey is one of those anime that I wanted to watch for a long while and it was recommended to me by my friends over the course of 2017. It was also around the time where the Studio Lerche was making the new Kino Journey anime which made me more curious about the series as a whole. After watching the first 4 episodes of Lerche Kino I decided to borrow my friends Out Of Print complete boxset from ADV Films and I watched the first 12 episodes of 2003 Kino and I absolutely adore it but at the same time I started to really read more

At one point Mobile Suit Victory Gundam was my most hated Gundam Show of all time. I hated the narrative and plot of Victory Gundam. I hated the characters, aboustly despite the pacing, hated the lack of actual substance of the show where characters would die randomly for no reason in the show and I hated the visuals for Victory Gundam as it’s very poorly animated and lack any detail. Even if Victory Gundam had a great soundtrack I still despise it for being a poorly animated and written shit show where I thought Gundam Seed Destiny, ZZ Gundam, and Gundam Build Fighters Try were read more

Neon Genesis Evangelion for me is a throwback series for me. It may not be for some others but for me it was different. I wasn’t around on Evangelion’s heyday because to be honest I wasn’t born in the 1980s or anything like that I didn’t go watch the End Of Evangelion in the cinemas 1997 and got nightmare fuel thanks to its grotesque imagery but my first encounter of Neon Genesis Evangelion was in 2011 when my old friend came to my house and brought his now extremely expensive Neon Genesis Evangelion Platinum collection that comes in a tin that contains all 26 episodes read more
