Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru is one of those funny stories, interesting but with some fanservice.

The story focuses on Marin and Gojou's relationship. The latter is a typical character who has no friends and who has some unexpected hobbies. Marin, on the other hand, is a popular, outgoing otaku (that's very atypical for a series), who loves cosplay, but she never had a real chance to share those feelings with anyone until she found Gojou. From paper, anyone would think that we have a typical and generic relationship. However, the relationship begins to develop comically and bears some resemblance to Runway Waratte's series. read more

"My mission is to make everyone happy by singing"--Vivy
"My mission is to make everyone content by reviewing"--Pipe

Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song, Vivy for short, is a spectacular series. It combines action, smooth animation sequencing, solid character development, a fantastic soundtrack, and a story that could have more holes than Gruyère cheese, but who cares. I don't mind if it's rife with time travel misconceptions and clichés; it is still delightful and quite surprising. I love this series. However, if we overthink the plot, we will lose all the enjoyment of this series, the beauty behind the story, and all the mysteries surrounding Vivy. For example, few read more

Assault Lily Bouquet is an enjoyable story, but its enjoyment could run hollow.

The story follows Riri Hitotsuyanagi, a new "Lily" student that joined the school to follow the person that saved her, Yuyu Shirai. However, the story is more complicated than that; we need to understand the concept of Lily, Charm, Huge, Garden, Rare Skill, Legions, Schutzangel, and that part is where the plot becomes messy.

One of the most significant flaws in the series is the amount of information handled during the plot. These defects not only creates chaos, but they also affect the story with unnecessary threads. We can appreciate these defects read more

SAO's franchise has always been full of disapproval babbles between the anime fans, we can look that in the continue hate and rants that we can find in every place. However, even if it is hard to accept for several fans, the light novel is considered the best of Japan's decade, where it matters. One of the arcs from that light novel is titled Alicization that concludes with these eleven episodes and that for me, it is probable the best part of SAO's plot until this date leaving aside the new arc (Unital Ring) that is being published right now.

The story follows the read more

Kami no Tou, a praised series that surprised many fans. The plot is so fantastic that Shakespeare will look like an amateur. Unfortunately, the reality is a different thing, it's just another series without good storytelling and plot progression. A mediocre series, after four episodes, they do not explain anything about the plot and do not have good pacing.

In a small shell, the plot is very simple. A boy, Bam, is found in a cave by Rachel. She educates and cares for him to the point that he believes he is her property. One day she said she wanted to see the stars and begins read more

Dreams are something that follows us during our entire life. Sometimes we can make them a reality; sometimes, they will become a nightmare that will follow us for eternity. Sometimes these dreams will become a utopia; sometimes, they will be childish. No matter what kind of dream we have, our life will revolve around them. Runway de Waratte is a fantastic series that push us to follow our dreams and to keep moving forward.

We follow the story of Chiyuki, a small fashion model that does not meet the height standards of a runway model. This limitation always closes her doors to the point that read more

Fate Grand Order, the CGI dilemma, and the strange development of Ritsuka.

When this adaptation was announced, I was excited. However, I cannot say the same after seeing the entire adaptation. Although Fate Grand Order Babylonia arc has a good story, it made three mistakes. First, as a vivid fan of the whole Fate series and as a FGO player, I expected them to use the adaptation to expand the background of the characters, their relationships, reasons, for example, Tiamat, Quetz, Enkidu, Gilgamesh to name a few. I was hoping that they would add some new story to aid the plot and fill in the little read more

Sometimes we are tempted to exaggerate about a series. Mairimashita! Iruma-kun will give us that opportunity, but in the end, the series can be considered average. From some perspective, the series is for a demographic group, children, if we look at the character designs, the licensors, the plot all points to that. Despite all those facts, the series can be enjoyable for any group of age. I think that the series succeeded in the comedy execution, it is not the best, but it can bring a smile into our faces.

The story follows a youngster, Iruma, who is sold by his parents to the demon read more

I'm living a deja-vu, another great manga with a controversial ending. A conclusion that has several mixed feelings. The ending lacks the charisma and emotion of the entire series. 5-toubun no Hanayome and the 4 broken hearts. 1- I want to get married and the twilight zone where dreams can give us the wrong impression.

First, I want to clarify this; we could have a manga with the "What if" ending. Some will complain and try to indicate that it is not valid. However, Negi said it in an interview where he points that he wants to write an ending that would make everyone happy, and read more

The world of SAO's lit is already so jam-packed with Kirito and Asuna providing enjoyable moments that it's unimaginable we'd need any more of them. How many of the anime fans hate SAO and its story? The weird surprise of Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld it gives the possibility to a more creative story and to other characters to shine, leaving zombie Kirito as a secondary character. I know this already happened on the "Mother's Rosario" arc when other characters were allowed to take the lead. However, this time I think the author handled it better, and for that reason, Alice's growth read more
