The 'Double Entendre' is a figure of speech that's used to be understood in two ways; one obvious, and one hidden or harder to figure out.  While simple, words can be twisted in ways to have more to them like the double entendre, resulting in things like pieces of literature and the review you're currently reading.  Admittedly, Violet Evergarden is kind of like a double entendre, so I'm gonna be sticking with that analogy going forward.

Story:

After years of conflict in a country similar to that of Industrial Europe, the Great War that plagued the continent has finally come to an end.  After receiving artificial arms read more

There's something special to said about a show that gives you not only sympathy for the characters, but also a torrent of emotions and feelings when watching.  Despite its cult-like status as a hidden gem that doesn't get talked about, Shaft was still managed to create a worthy sequel of the story of Rei Kiriyama.  (Honestly, the analytics are kind of boring, so I'd suggest you just skip to the 'Personal Enjoyment' section.)



Story:

We return back to March Town, following the story of Rei Kiriyama as his story comes to fruition after digging himself out of the hole he's found himself in for years, turning its read more

You know those ads on Youtube that let you skip them after 5 seconds?  Think of this as that and season 1 as the 30 second unskippable ones.  

Story:

As expected of a sequel, Dagashi Kashi 2 returns back to Shikada Dagashi, where Kokonotsu continues his youth out in the sticks subjected to the eccentric Hotaru bringing about new cheap snacks and the history behind them before disappearing halfway and continuing that plotline anyway despite not having the character that made the show interesting in the first place do all of the narration.

Alright in short, the show is...sorta like the first season with its runtime cut in read more

"The one with the sharpest fangs wins.  That is what Killing Bites is." -Uzaki Hitomi.

Yeah so...that's said every episode whether you like it or not.  Think of it as the catalyst for the plot armor to activate.  I wish I was kidding.

Story:

Four powerful companies fight for power and control over each other.  In order to settle their feuds, the four companies have put funding towards therianthropes, people who've had their genetic code infused with that of an animal that allows them to transform into the biological weapons of the animal of their choice called Brutes (cause that's totally how genetic engineering works), participating in cockfights read more

Slice of Life.  As a genre, it's become so oversaturated with content that it's branched off into comedy, supernatural, romance, what have you, causing the trend of missing a few diamonds in the rough here and there is a common occurrence.  Hakumei to Mikochi is in this reviewer's opinion, the poor victim of this phenomenon in the Winter 2018 season, and one that deserves light being shed on its deceivingly cutesy self.

Story:

In the woods lives the little people, a species of three inch tall elf-like beings who live their daily lives in the woods.  In Hakumei to Mikochi, we peer into the lives of the read more

"Ah, youth", a phrase that harkens back to a simpler time without adult responsibilities like taxes, work, or complicated interpersonal relationships, and everything can be summed up with having fun with friends or having an innocent crush on the girl sitting next to you.  Ooo, I've been waiting for this one.

Story:

Our story starts between the two middle schoolers who sit next to each other in class, Nishikata and Takagi.  It's become glaringly clear for Nishikata that Takagi enjoys seeing his flustered reactions and teasing him at every opportunity she can get, leading this boy down the rocky path to get back at this girl for read more

A trend I find with children in anime is that they're always painted 'cute'.  Small human beings surrounded by glittery and sparkly effects who do cute things so that the audience falls in love with the tiny people characters.  It's not often that I see children portrayed as what they actually are, monsters, and it's even stranger to see a more realistic representation portrayed in a shoujo series of all things, a genre where virtually everything is depicted a lot more flowery than they actually are.

Kashima Ryuuichi and his little brother Kotaro have met with the unfortunate fate of becoming orphans after their parents passing read more

The concept of magic and its similar fantastical themes in the realm of anime have ended up turning into worlds with stats and RPG elements due to the constant stream and popularity of Isekai shows clogging up seasonal lists with various titles of the same type with small gimmicks in between each other to make them 'unique'.  But recently we've entered into a renaissance of series' involving magic as part of nature, venturing back to the roots of where the concept first originated; folklore.

Story:

Our story follows Hatori Chise, a girl who willingly sells herself at an auction in hopes to find a better home, now read more

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
