Goddamnit JC Staff. When I heard that the third season was gonna have 2 cours, I thought that I could hold off on watching it till next season. But no, you chopped it in half and put me behind schedule. Personal salt aside, the third heaping of Food Wars porn starts putting the show into some bittersweet territory.

Story:

The first half of the third season of Food Wars brings us a duality of arcs from its original manga, serving us up the moon festival and the beginning of the series's downfall respectively in a somewhat bitter tasting presentation that begs the question of read more

Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte Kara is a drink as sweet as it is intoxicating.

Week after week, immerse yourself in a three minute long episode of watching a house husband provide different kinds of cocktails and alcoholic beverages to his working wife as she swoons over the each drink like the lightweight she is, regressing from a strict and disciplined worker to a free spirit with her hair down.

In addition, learn how to make each drink featured through the help of a happy little lemon complete with a recipe and instructions from the house husband from the show. So if read more

Y'know, the realization of writing reviews on this site for four years comes with some vague existentialism of wondering if anyone actually reads the things that I write, or if I've actually improved cause these things are just sort of self-proofread without my outside opinion. Bah, I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's just get into this thing.

Story:

First off, ignore the first five minutes. As a writer, Hashima Itsuki is peculiar. After getting an earful from his editor for the umpteenth time, he goes off on his usual schpeel about the greatness that is the 'imouto', before being promptly told to take read more

Blend S (Anime) add (All reviews)
Today's letter of the day is 'S'. For Schlappy. There, I contributed to the meme. I am now garbage. Memes aside, it's Blend S everyone, let's just get into the analysis.

Story:

Sakuranomiya Maika is a girl with a naturally scary face, known to inflict terror into all that either accidentally or purposefully meet her gaze. On one fateful encounter (if you can call it that), she meets a man by the name of Dino, who worryingly offers a job as a waitress in a cafe named 'Stile', where in the job description, she has to use her naturally scary expression as read more

They say that it’s always the journey, not the destination. Often times, we seek something in our lives only for it to eventually fade away as we wither and die, leaving behind only the memory of who we once were in a world that we go on without us. In a world left as a shell of its former self, two girls take their last tour into the wide, open world.

(The only real important part of the review is at the very end in ‘Personal Enjoyment’, if you want to skip to it.)

Yuuri and Chito are two young girls who ride read more

They say that given enough time, you either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. This interesting moral dilemma of what it takes to do the right thing is the basis for many hero stories, elevating them to be more than just a simple hero’s journey. Based on this principle, Inuyashiki takes this concept and turns it into a battle of muddied philosophy that ends up more black and white than the intended shade of gray.

Story:

Without a purpose in his life, Inuyashiki Ichirou spends his life in a seemingly unloving family who despite his best efforts is read more

The genre of Slice of life has been so riddled with all female casts of cute girls doing cute things that each season seems to have its own version of the trope with a slight difference in its storytelling and/or setting in order to give the show some ‘unique aspects’. These aspects are usually easy to distinguish and end up seeming gimmicky cause at the end of the day; it’s still cute girls doing cute things. But then you have Konohana Kitan, a show about cute kitsune girls doing…not just cute things in their daily lives.

Story:

In a world between Earth and Heaven there read more

War. War never changes. People die when they are killed, greed overpowers all, fighting never gets us anywhere, yada yada yada. At some point in our lives, we've all heard a spiel kinda like this, and repeated doses of the phrase demotes the saying to an irritating platitude that means absolutely nothing. So, if you want to decide the fate of the world, what do you do? Pit 12 people against each other of course. What other way would there be?

Every 12 years, twelve warriors are gathered together in order to participate in the Juuni Taisen, a battle royale read more

The 4-koma. A simple yet pure comedic style that has recently been sullied due to the sheer amount of attempts to stretch the original source material into a full-length series. While yes, it can work sometimes, this is certainly one example in which having full episodes turns the experience into something that's long and hard to watch. Yes that was intentional.

Story:

Sho-bitch, as my shorthand for this series will be, centers (quite literally) itself around our main protagonist, Shinozaki Haruka. One day he confesses to the school beauty, Kousaka Akiho, and instead of getting a straight answer from her, is read more

The 'NEET' and hikikomori pandemic in Japan has been on the rise in recent years. Due to stress and pressures in the workplace, many people have either quit to pursue a more secluded life, or dropped dead due to the stresses of having to be in a workplace. So why am I talking about this? Well, that's the plot of the show.

Story:

While not as dark as the reality of the topic at hand, Net-juu no Susume (or Net-juu as I'll be calling it from now on), touches on the story of Morioka Moriko, a 30 year old NEET who recently quit her read more
