Out of all of the games in the 'Tales of-' series, many people were skeptical at Ufotable's choice at adapting Zestiria, which was understandable given how it had one of the weakest stories in the entire series. And honestly, the skepticism backed itself up very well given the final product.

Story: Continuing with its previous season, Tales of Zestiria brings us back to the world plagued by malevolence where we follow our main protagonist, Sorey, as he fully realizes his power as the Shepherd in order to save the world from humanity's own faults and wrongdoings. At least...that's what I think the show's about? read more

Kyoto Animation or KyoAni has always been on the ball with their shows. As pioneers of the moe genre that helped flourish it into its own set of tropes and tiresome cliche everyday writing, one has to wonder what kind of box hasn't been ticked off yet on themes or gimmicks that haven't been utilized yet. Well, what about dragons?

Story: Our story beings with Kobayashi. Kobayashi is your typical white collar worker who travels to work, sits at her desk, maybe goes out to drink with a friend, then go home. She's welcomed to an unusual sight one day upon leaving read more

Love is a fickle thing. Almost if not everyone yearns for true love, to find that one person who loves them unconditionally and through thick and thin, will stay with them no matter what hardships may come. But life isn't as easy as that. But in reality, something as simple as loving someone is...complicated, full of heartbreaks and unexpected turns that almost never have a happy ending.

Story: With a title that's translated to "Scum's Wish", Kuzu no Honkai plays out the tale of a pair of high school hopefuls who get together for the sake of fulfilling each other's fantasies of read more

The beautiful thing about comedy is that it's subjective. It's an extremely wide topic where there're a multitude of ways to go about it, with the main goal being getting those watching or listening to laugh at the end. So, how does one go about making the ridiculous plot of stripping off peoples' clothes entertaining? Well, by shoving in references of course.

Story: Akihabara, the place of hopes and dreams is threatened by an unseen threat. Bugged ones, creatures who lurk in the dark, seek to take over the otaku capital and rule over it by their own laws and values. read more

The word 'adaptation' for anime has quite a flexible definition. Most often, the term 'adaptation' means that the production company takes the source material and tries their best to make a carbon copy of the series that they decided to make in animated form. But at the same time, the word 'adaptation' can mean "based on" the original source material, and have their own anime-original plots and endings that contradict what the original series may have entailed. Twinstar Exorcists, or Sousei no Omnyouji is an example of the latter.

Story: The world we live in is a place that exists parallel read more

Anime originals. Creating original anime has the crippling fault of being the source in existence, meaning, if the anime doesn't fulfill everything it needs to do in order to complete a story by its own merits, it can and will fail stupendously. So, with a name as ridiculous as 'Hand Shakers', it's not hard to see how GoHand's (how fitting) original show flopped so hard.

Story: Takatsuki Tazuna is a boy in high school who acts as a handyman to anyone who needs help. Any device that's broken, he can fix in a jiffy. One day, while arriving in a place read more

Angels have been known as servants of God, creatures who reside in the heavens and watch over those in earth to help pass judgment of those created in God's eye. Demons are those who live in Hell, and attempt to make people fall to temptation, and subsequently bring them down into the fiery pits of Damnation. Despite having both of those creatures as its main four characters, Gabriel Dropout has nothing to do with what I described.

Story: Gabriel Tenma White was a model student back at heaven, being given praise for her many accomplishments, and became the top graduate in her class. read more

Mobile game adaptations are few and far in between, and they all fall into one of two categories. Either they're of average quality yet manage to garner a huge amount of popularity due to its characters (Kancolle/Love Live), or no one gives two shits about them because they're so bad no one cares (Girlfriend Kari). So, how does Chain Chronicle, the lovechild between Alim and Sega that no longer has any global servers on the west coast because fuck you westerners, fare in all of this?

Story: Alright, because the anime doesn't give any context, and various synopsis' beyond "This is an adaptation of read more

Hmm...you know what this series needs? A rewrite. (Yes, I know that joke has been done to death already, but it's still fun to use.) Rewrite is a much anticipated adaptation of one of Key's most well-known visual novels that had mixed results. Its poor and attempts to compact the source material while trying to finish off its story with an anime original ending created polarizing feedback from those who watched it. So, for its second season, 8bit took another shot at the series and well...had about as much success as 8bit would have for these kinds of things.

Urara Meirochou. Alright, you're a moe blob anime, what's your gimmick this time? Let's see here... Set in a town of 10 districts... Divination... Gods and spirits...? And...lots of yuri baiting. Alright well this is going to be a 'fun' venture, now isn't it?

Story: Labyrinth Town is a town of fortune tellers where girls with spiritual powers starting at the age of fifteen come to the city with the prospect of becoming rank one urara, the highest rank of fortune teller that one can receive. It's here where we meet Chiya, a girl raised in the woods read more
