I've reached a point in my life where my entertainment needs something other than action and excitement. Something that can tug at the heartstrings you know? Perhaps I'm too sentimental unsuited for my age, but I suppose that's just what I require to find something worth of substance nowadays.

SAO2 hardly fits this rather stringent criterion with the sole exception of the last story arc of the season. If nothing else watch the Mother's Rosario storyline to immerse yourself in the almighty feels. The near entirety of the season prior to Mother's Rosario is a nondescript experience, yet SAO2 saved the best for last.

Ironic in that read more

I find myself having difficulty organizing my thoughts on NGNL. I wanted to write this review right after I finished the last episode, but then it would only be riding the hype-train and most likely lacking much in perspective. What needs to be said is probably covered in the multitude of other reviews for this anime so what can I write to contribute?

I found myself skeptical at the concept of NGNL. At first glance, I thought it was something akin to Sword Art Online. And while I found SAO to be a decent enough watch, I don't need to see another "clone" of it. read more

I never thought I would find myself writing another review given the fact that I don't watch anime as much as I used to, but the hilarity that is Princess Lover! warranted another one with my poor command of the English language.

So where to begin?

The plot is straightforward enough...random guy becomes the heir to a vast fortune and has to become accustomed to living as a rich man. So that's where that ends...this anime can be summed up in pretty much one word: Fanservice!

Trying to understand some of the events that goes on as the "plot" progresses is not good for your health and read more

It has certainly been one long ride! Two anime seasons, an OVA, and the supposed third season known as San Gakki.

We all start by getting thrown into an arc of the manga leagues ahead of where Ni Gakki left off. Needless to say you will be completely lost unless you have been following the School Rumble manga. To make a rather long and tedious story short, this "OVA" combines some of the most defining moments of the manga, to what made the manga a complete wreck in the first place. We have Harima's defining moment as a man to the inevitable train wreck known read more

The continuation of DCII, DCII:SS follows the story of Yukimura Anzu, Asakura Yume and Otome, and the mystery surrounding the Magical Sakura Tree.

While DCII caters towards the fans of certain characters, DCII:SS follows the mold of what made the original Da Capo great. Like its predecessor, the story revolves around the mysterious events in the island of Hatsunejima. Although unlike the original Da Capo, the male lead has TWO 'sisters' that are very close to him. Drama ensues...

The character designs for DCII:SS is magnificent, especially those of Shirakawa Nanaka. The actual animation leaves much to be desired, but it is acceptable and in no way read more

A sequel to a successful franchise, Da Capo II takes us to the journey of one Yoshiyuki Sakurai and his harem. Veterans of the original Da Capo will see some distinct similarities concerning the overall plot and the characters that make up the world of DCII.

As previously stated, the anime of DCII is severely lacking compared to its predecessors. It's not that the story itself is lacking, but due to a 26 episode series being abruptly split in half to two 13 episode seasons.

I find it hard to review an incomplete story such as DCII but I don't want current and future viewers read more

What makes this manga stand out from any of the previous Kanon adaptations to date? Well given the cover of the manga, the answer is quite obvious. However, we have all been fooled in the past!

Not today my friends, for this manga is almost a standalone version of the Kanon series. The arcs of the girls go beyond that of the original visual novel, there are even some parts where the story is different altogether. Needless to say, it is highly recommended to have some knowledge of the Kanon-verse before reading this manga.

Now of course that's not the real reason as to why this read more
