Life is all of choices. Every second of your life, you have to make a choice, sometimes subconsciously. People you meet will likely tell you to "make your own choices". However, what if you couldn't, and the choices you had to make would be rather questionable? We'll explore this question, as we enter the world of Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Love Comedy wo Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru, which I will be referring it to as NouCome.

In NouCome, we follow a simple yet hilarious series of comedic events. With Kanade Amakusa, the protagonist having to face a rather embarrassing choice each episode, it creates read more

I have a strange feeling when reading action shounen manga. On one hand, I sometimes find those boring if they utilize common tropes that are found in nearly any shounen manga I read. On the other hand, I love the utilization of these tropes, as they bring forth the essence of what a shounen manga truly is. To make short, the use of these shounen tropes must be used well in order for the manga to be enjoyable. As to where I am going with this, it is simply to tell you that Shuukan Shounen Hachi utilizes these tropes really well.

Personally, the story of Shuukan read more

When I finished watching Emiya-san Chi no Kyou no Gohan, I had only watch the first season of Fate/Zero, both seasons of Fate/Stay Night UBW and the first movie of Heaven's Feels. As such, I went into this anime with an incomplete knowledge of the backstory of all characters. However, that did not prevent me from loving this anime.

The story follows the usual formula for cooking anime. Introduce a recipe, have people eat it, finish with a heart-warming epilogue. It is a really simple anime, and that is completely fine. By making this anime simple, it allows for the generation of cute and heart-warming scenes. read more

Persona 3 is one of my favourite games, if not my favourite. Sadly, I did not get the opportunity to play Persona 4 or Persona Q. However, this did not stop me from having a good time reading this manga.

Personally, the strong point of this mange is definitely not the story. Covering only what I assume to be half of the game it is adapted from, I imagine that the author's focus was to simply have an adaptation of the game. As I am writing this review, I recall that there was no major story to talk about. There was still an exposition to give read more

This might sound generic, but high school romance mangas seem to get less creative as years pass. It's quite hard to find an amazing one. They either have to bring in a new and original story, or completely nail the already established conventions. 7-Jikanme no Note successfully does the latter.

As you might have guessed from the introduction of this review, 7-Jikanme no Note does not have an amazing story. It follows high school students who are in love, just like every other romance manga out there. But don't get me wrong, this is not a bad thing. This manga aims to be cute and heartwarming, read more

People like manga for various different reasons. Some people like them for the intense action, others for the overwhelming drama. I like this one for being a simple light-hearted slice of life.

The story is simple. Like many other 4-koma manga, it lacks a clear plot. However, I think it doesn't need one, as the cute and light-hearted jokes compensate enough for it. The concept of communication through paper airplanes was also very cute, which added helped into giving a nice feeling to me whenever I read it. This manga never tried to build up a story. It just brings forth new light-hearted jokes, which each read more

Nobody in this world is perfect. That was what we were learned when we were small children. However, this statement is proved false, with Sakamoto proving otherwise. In the world of Sakamoto desu ga? we explore the life of Sakamoto, showing us the very definition of cool.

In my opinion, comedy anime never need an amazing story. They just need to have good reasons to make us laugh. Although the story isn't the most original, it is certainly good. To have the perfect person encounter the different problems people bring onto him was a good story that brought hilarious over-exaggerated events. To keep it simple, the read more
