86 (Anime) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
86, in my opinion, should be seen as an example of a lackluster story with a great production value. That being said, I still personally enjoy this series as one of the top contenders for my favorite anime from this season.

For the most part, the stylistic choices and direction are definitely the highlights of the anime. The animation and Hiroyuki Sawano’s soundtrack both add to my enjoyment of this anime, although this is just preference and isn’t objective. Because of Sawano’s OSTs for other recent mecha and mecha-related anime series, the vocal tracks during the fight scenes of this show feel familiar and with the read more

Aboard a critically damaged airship, a lone mysterious red-haired girl in a military dress uniform walks forward with her weapon drawn. A song, reminiscent of “Amazing Grace”, plays in the background, juxtaposed against the carnage aboard the ship between what appear to be plant-like monsters and anthropomorphic bestial soldiers. We hear the girl’s internal monologue professing her love to someone. She takes a final step forward to the edge of the ship, with a single strand of blue hair fluttering in front of her lifeless eyes. As she falls into the crimson sky against the shimmering backdrop of the setting sun, the final chord of read more

Utawarerumono is an enigmatic story simplified into the fantasy/adventure genres, before flashing nuances of science fiction themes, leaving more questions in the end than answers for the viewers, no matter how attentive or enthralled by the story they are.

Judging by this very critical synopsis, it may seem that I enjoyed the story more than I should have. But the truth is, at the end of the day, Utawarerumono could still be described as a tale of an amnesiac who would work to the ends of the world to protect his newfound family. Of course, the latter description by itself, sounds like something senseless and unexplained, read more

I hope I don't sound too arrogant in reviewing this, but personally, I always like to put out a prerequisite for myself before giving out a 9 rating with any anime, and consequentially, I have seemingly subconsciously turned this prerequisite into more of a "check one of these boxes and you'll automatically get a 9" requirement for all the anime I've rated. The strong presentation, development, and overall execution of the literary themes in this anime is the requirements one of those requirements that this anime presents well, meriting it the score I am giving it.

With that out of the way, I want to explain read more

This film is quite an anomaly for me personally, because not only do I rarely watch anime movies, but I have also never given a full 10/10 score to an anime before. This may be because I am simply critical as a reviewer by nature, but I think that moreover, it is really just because no series has been able to develop every element of their show like Kimi no Na wa has.
Overall, the concept of Kimi no Na wa is less to me an original take on an idea, but actually a developmental process combining elements of the traditional high school anime setting with read more

Personally, after watching any enjoyable anime series, I like to non-critically analyze the overall mood of the anime. What I mean is I tend to not concern myself too much with the actual assessment of the components of the anime, but moreover of what I feel in the moment. This tends to make many of my anime scores different from the expected score of the average viewer. Rakudai Kishini no Cavalry is definetly one of those cases.

For starters, I'd like to assess the overall setting of the story. Being that the plot takes place in a magical high school where students battle each other using read more

No Game No Life was a hell of an adventure. Even with a semi-predictable/generic setting, the execution and phrasing of everything was simply brilliant. Everything seemed to be timed and packed with suspense so that there wasn't even a moment when I thought, "Man, when will this monologue finish?"

I would be giving this anime a perfect ten if only the development as a whole was as steady as the phrasing of the plot. What I mean is that it almost seemed inconsistent on the amount of attention every character got. It was very bland in terms of the roles the characters played. Sora and Shiro read more

Dog Days Season 3: Nothing Really Exceptional Here...

In all honesty, the first season of Dog Days touched my heart. It told a very subtle, light-hearted, romantic tale with a basic plotline that really defined the value of simplicity. With the story being so brilliantly executed with minor flaws, I could easily consider it one of my favorite animes.

However, I've noticed that season 2 and 3 share a similar problem- the plot never gets anywhere. Everything just feels so bland, and from an analytic perspective, makes it feel very lacking. Both the characters and the story remain shallow, and development was minimal.

One good quality that all read more

Ok, so don't be too judgmental. This review is gonna be very bland, but here goes:

The Story-
OH WAIT, THERE WAS A STORY?

Art-
Decent, not exceptional. Well balanced art style for a generic anime

Sound-
Less QQ more Pew Pew.

Character-
Though the characters are generic and mediocre, the concept of personifying the personality/trademarks of a gun has not gone noticed. Good attempt!

Overall-
Average anime. I think this anime would really appeal to anyone interested in firearms. Of course, like with any anime, not every fact stated is true, but I have to give this show credit for a fine attempt at a new concept.
6.4/10

First anime review! I kind of rush typed this in 10 minutes so excuse me for the typos/grammar errors or lines that don't make sense.

So I won't use the specifics of the Anime Rating System of myanimelist to write this review. Instead, I'll focus on a couple of categories (tl,dr: Just watch the anime it's pretty damn great.)

Setting- 9.8
I couldn't ask for a better setting. A hero from another world is summoned and has to protect his sadist master. This show is literally the sadist version of Dog Days (http://myanimelist.net/anime/10155/Dog_Days). The type of beauty and complexity in a vast and new environment really sets Zero read more
