It's really good. I guess you really can find some hidden gems if you search hard enough. Even though I've watched a lot of series before, this one never really caught my eye.
As a "garbage collector," nowadays I just watch random anime or new anime I haven't watched before, since I've watched so many shows that I've watched all the things I've wanted to watch, so a lot of shows I watch are less popular and usually for a reason: they suck.
But this show is great. You know, a lot of anime I watch nowadays I just check how much longer is it going read more

This is me writing a review of the monogatari series in hindsight after watching the original bakemonogatari series back in ~2012-2013 and being caught up even today Long review.:

I am not a person easily convinced that an adaption is better than the original by any means. Only a select few can truly amaze me to the point where I claim that the adaption is truly better, because I am a person that has a strong belief that source material is always going to be better.
However, there have been times where an adaption becomes something MORE than the original. Usually, when this happens, the adaption read more

This series hasn't aged well at all. Maybe back in 2012, where this type of genre was not done to death yet, it might have been good or up to standards. Nowadays watching this 7 years after its release, it is quite apparent that it's boring.

Because love comedies like this have been circulated way too frequently for me to ever enjoy something so bare bones and normal looking. You know, romance and comedies have gone quite a way, and its apparent when looking at this show. Nothing special about it, and nothing interesting. Very generic supporting characters for a typical romantic ML and FL. read more

it's an ok show, I guess.

It's just hard to enjoy a show when you've seen it done better, and yes, I am referring to Mirai Nikki.
Being given 12 episodes, this show is actually pretty slow paced for what it is. Even if the characters are basically insane because the show wants to be edgy, I can't say that the characters don't make sense, because a lot of screen time is given just to show that. That doesn't mean the characters were good, though. I always find myself kind of wandering because the characters are really boringly predictable. You know, in mirai nikki, everyone is read more

It's basically a hit or miss. I mean, it wasn't particularly bad in any way, and nor was it good. It didn't quite captivate me and make me want to keep on watching despite the interesting premise of the show (of course, this show got some inspiration from utena undeniably).

The cast of characters is as boring as it gets. Stoic, mysterious childhood friend with an "untalented" MC that's a klutz, sleeps late, and bumbling about as a happy student.

I guess the reason why I didn't want to watch is because the ending looks predictable, and it pretty much panned out the way I guessed it read more

K-On! (Anime) add (All reviews)
Basically a classic. Without knowing anything about this show, it might be a kind of basic cute girls doing cute things type of show.
The thing is, it kind of is, but it's THE show that made this genre make a huge boom in the first place, or at least one of the shows. It's popular. Super popular. And I mean, if I watched this in 2009, I would be too. So I play homage to this show, and watched it just now.
Honestly, kind of boring, but you have to understand that the reason its boring is because I've already watched shows like this before, read more

This is the fourth installment of the spinoff series focusing around Illya, who is a magical girl.

I'm going to review only the third fourth seasons, as I actually thought the first two seasons were good for what they were. Especially the second season, I found it to be a much better sequel than I was anticipating. As for the third and fourth...not so much.

I'm not going to spend a lot of time on the third season, but basically, the first 6 episodes are a nonfactor. If you didn't already know that illya was a magical girl, you'd basically never would have figured it out until read more

This show was way to ambitious with the way it wanted to include anything and everything into its plot.

*spoilers ahead

So, the first episode looks good, shows some promise, the way characters are presented, kazumi's secret, turning into kappa, etc. And honestly, some nice, fluid animation, with no CG. Sure, there are some lazy backgrounds for animating people, but I'll take that over crappy CG. The leaking memory thing is also kind of interesting in terms of character development and plot progression.

HOWEVER, so much stuff and plot is just CRAMMED into a 11 episode series. Kazuki's secret, which honestly, could have been the main topic read more

This anime is the peak of the melodrama craze that was going on at this time this anime was aired. And of course, it was a HUGE success.
But it's garbage. The fact of the matter is, the contents of this show are so minimal, and any plot really only happens at the very beginning, and the very end. There IS a deficit in too slow paced episodes, especially when its badly made, and show no purpose. This anime could have been made into a 90 minute movie, and I'm sure it would have turned out the same exact way. And of course, the entire read more

Some things just can't be adapted well if they are too true to their originals, and this is what happened with this adaptation.
I'm sure if you're not 12 and live under a rock, you knew the old RPG style horror games that came out in the 2000s, like Ao oni, IB, Mad father, etc etc. This was one of them. Granted, I never played this game, but I have played a few of the other horror games before, and actually just recently I played one as well. While I didn't get the feeling of scariness as I did before, I still remember the vibes and read more
