Dororo (Anime) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
"Party is over."
Yeah, you bet your a** this party's over alright...

It has been already 4 years since I last picked up my pen a.k.a. keyboard, to actually write a review. And while I originally intended to do a review on an anime I actually like, followed by a 5-Part JoJo review, I somehow just felt this one way more. Which is pretty ironic, because well, it's about a boy who doesn't really feel a whole lot, you know?

DISCLAIMER: No, this is not a trollpost, and I appreciate comments and encourage discussions. Also, this Review should (to my recollection) contain no spoilers. Enjoy!

So, I heard, the read more

With the end of the year 2014 its finally time to also close one of the darkest chapters of my entire life. A chapter which is known as Trinity Seven. Really. I don't even know why I went all the way watching it to the end. Still, its an interesting experience.

Even though its just something along the lines of 'Whew, now I really can point my finger on an anime that is actually... bad.'

Back to serious mode. Obviously I'm still going to be fair with this anime.
First of all, storywise. What does this anime have in store for us?
The mainstory is reasonable simple and catchy. read more

I think its quite saddening that I don't have anything better to do than writing a review. On christmas! However, this really needs to be done at some point, and while other people are eating cookies, I'll do this one: Cowboy Bebop Review Mk II. New and improved, rated by my new guidelines!

First of all, yes, I still dislike Cowboy Bebop, and even without rereading it I still remember the opening phrase from my first review. I'll refrain from it this time though, because at some point I stopped caring about whether I like that particular anime or not, I just want to give a read more

I promised to some friends that some day I would do a review on Samurai Champloo.
And well, since the dough for the Nikuman is still rising, I might as well do this now. So, where to start?

First of all, if you visit my profile you'll find out rather quickly that I'm not a big fan of Watanabe Shinichiro. Or his works. Still, I try to rate it as objective as possible. So, lets get started already.

The first point on my list would be the story aspect, which I split up in three sections (something I'll do for every category, be prepared): The actual story, the read more

Preliminary
Yes, you can believe your eyes, I really rated One Piece a 6.
But please! Wait before spamming the 'Not Helpful' Button.

I'm myself a fan of Shonen Anime, so I should happen to like One Piece, right? Right?!
Nope, not really. But let's delve a bit deeper.

Story: 6/10
The definitely most promising about One Piece is its absolutely unique setting.
The sheer vastness of the world makes this anime outstanding. And even better, in that kind of setting nearly everything can happen. Adventures on the ship, tropical islands, deserts, or some snowy winter paradise.
However, despite this promising world, each and every damn arc is exactly the same, over and read more

I originally didn't intend to review this, but apparently, most of the people don't really get this episode. So, let me bring light to wher is darkness right now. Just kidding, its already written in the synopsis.

This is a an actual mini-game from Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, in which you can play as one of 5 Servants (Saber, Lancer, Archer, Rider and Caster). The version showed in the episode is commented by the cast itself, making for some hillarious jokes (Mapo, Mapo!).

Story
Well, like already mentioned, this is some kind of minigame. So there is not that much of a story to begin with. Still, these games are read more

Welcome to the 13 minute classic - Mangaka-san to Assist-san to The Animation.

Story: 7/10
The story in itself isn't anything special, of course. It follows the perverted, young mangaka Aito Yuuki, which, because of his lack of zeal, is about to miss the deadline once again.
The story is pure comedy, so I don't really mind if its not worked out perfectly.

Art: 7/10
Cute character designs, as well as good backgrounds and just as good animations definitely help making a good anime. Just like in this case. The colors are lively, the qualitiy is consistent, nothing to rant about.

Sound: 8/10

Oh yeah, Ping Pong: The Animation.
I know I'll get reports and dislikes for this one,
but please bear with me, since this is my oppinion.

Story: 4/10
The story of Ping Pong is probably one of the poorest executed versions of 'Cliche-Sports-Story Mk I'. There isn't even much I could spoil. What do you expect of the most cliched sportsstory?
Take a while and imagine. I'll give you a hint its the same principle used in next to every shounen, as well as probably every sports anime.
I don't have much of a problem with such a storyline in itself, but if the story is like that, you'd need some read more

To be completely honest, I never really got warm with Mushishi.
Nonetheless its still a pretty good anime.

Story: 7/10
Mushishis plot is completely episodic. Yet, every episode still is unique in its own way, with varying endings, plots and characters. Like a 20 minute movie.

Art: 8/10
The backgrounds of Mushishi are really outstanding and probably one of the best backgrounds I've seen so far. The character designs on the other hand are mediocre at best. Besides main char Ginko everyone looks the same. The Mushi on the other hand have great and varying designs, making all of them really unique. Animations are fluent and nicely done.

Sound: 8/10

No Game No Life is probably one of the most discussed Anime of the Season,
so I'll say it clearly: This is my own oppinion, and it might differ from yours.

Story: 8/10
The Main Idea of living inside a game isn't new by any means.
But in contrast to most anime Shiro and Sora, our main Heroes have absolutely no interest of returning. I put a Liking to the idea. Its not the most complex story of all times, in fact its linear but nonetheless its a really good one.

Art: 10/10
It takes you exactly 17 seconds to realize that these artworks are awesome.
