Gamers! (Anime) add (All reviews)
The stereotypical gamer is an anti-social closet hermit who obsesses over leveling up their avatars and staying far away from social activity as much as possible.  To poke fun at this stereotypical concept, we have Gamers!, a show supposedly about gamers and the kind of comedy that happens when they're put in a romcom situation.

Story:

Based on a light novel of the same name, Gamers! tells the story of a boy named Amano Keita with his life flipped upside down as the school idol Tendou Karen notices his dedication as a gamer and offers him a spot in the gaming club where she and several upperclassmen read more

So New Game! made a splash with its cute cast of gaming grill nerds dedicating its entire runtime to making games combined with various antics in the office cause quirkiness is a staple for this kind of show to keep things interesting. To no one’s surprise, we got a sequel. So…how’s the sequel, I guess is the question. (Missed opportunity not calling it ‘New Game+’.)

Story:

Now finished with their current project, we return back to Eagle Jump one year later from Aoba starting as a character designer for the company as we continue viewing the lives of the women who work at the read more

Gambling is easy.  Put your life savings on the table, play a game of your choice, and come out either richer or much poorer than you were when you came in.  That's all good and all, but you want more, something to satisfy the gambling craving that you've grown accustomed to.  So put on your big anime tiddies, brush back your long black hair, slap a metal ring on your left thumb, and prepare to ahegao, it's Kakegurui.

Story: Hyakkaou Private Academy is a...peculiar academy.  In order to prepare its students for the important positions that they'll succeed from their parents, the school after hours turns read more

"What do you want to be when you grow up?" It's such a simple question that often times has no answer because many people just honestly don't know what to do with themselves.  It's here where P.A. Works brings their storytelling flair to answer that question, giving us Sakura Quest, a journey of one girl and her friends to save a dying town.

Story: Koharu Yoshino is a girl with a dream of finding something special.  Leaving her countryside home for the big city, she finds herself in a rut unable to find anything stable.  With one last chance given to her way out in the read more

It is said that humans are the most intelligent creatures on the planet.  Who said it?  Why humans of course.  And as much our species loves to boast about its dominance over dear mother earth despite the logical fallacy, there're always gonna be a couple...less than stellar members of the bunch.

Story: With a title that literally translates to 'Idiot Girl', Aho Girl follows the comedic school romp of an idiotic girl named Yoshiko and her childhood 'friend' Akuru filled with fast comedic misunderstandings, leaps in logic, and some vaguely illegal things, ultimately creating a show that when you put it into perspective...makes absolutely no sense.

High school romances are often the most delicate things.  The fragility of youth is complimented by equally fragile yet pure relationships that're formed when two people discover feel their pulse quicken when being near the people they want to spend time with.  

Story: Tsurezure Children follows a rotating cast of characters where each of its twelve minute long episode is split into three parts, each part focusing on a different couple or in some cases, successive parts that focus on the same pair.  With it, the show gives off a sense of progress as each couple grows closer to each other and gives the viewer a read more

Isekai is a very tiresome genre.  Quite honestly with all of the new 'transporting to a new world' adding only one or two arbitrary things in order to make it unique, the concept just appears...lazy.  So, now we're gonna transport a restaurant to another world.  And...it's actually pretty good.  Huh.

Story: There are legends of a strange door that appears all over the world on the day of Satur known as "Western Restaurant Nekoya".  Within the door lies an establishment that takes in gold and silver coins in exchange for food not seen or known to others.  Marvels like curry, parfaits, and natto that people have read more

You walk to your boring, mundane job with your head down thinking it's just going to be a normal workday where nothing happens.  On your way to work, you pass by this beautiful, stunning girl that catches your eye.  Without word or warning, you run to her, heart beating, wanting to see or know more about this strange maiden that you just happened to go by.  That...is love.  Or rather, that's a common, idealistic idea of 'love'. 

Story: In reality, the subject of love is messy business, where commitment and relationships are tested only to end in separations and heartbreak.  To counteract this, the Japanese government read more

For the most part, romance in anime centers around the build-up to the relationship and not the relationship itself.  While examples of stories revolving around established couples exist, the common way to write romance involves making the audience wait for the confession/kiss before ending things when things get good.  So...what happens when you put an established couple...in a harem comedy?  

Story: Hashiba Junnichi is a dreamer.  Despite being an ordinary student without many redeeming factors to speak of, he hopes one day that he'll get a girlfriend and 'graduate' from being a virgin.  So, after his idiot pervert friends pressure him into confessing to a gal read more

Ah, Danmachi. With the harem/fantasy show’s legacy leaving behind such wonderful memes about its busty loli goddess heroine like the famous boob ribbon and ‘Hestia is Bestia’, it’s no wonder the show had a tough time having a complete positive footing in the anime community due to various aspects about it like its multitude of female characters wishing to breed like rabbits with its main protagonist. So how can you make a show like that into something that’s similar, but objectively better in comparison? Well, for starters you could follow the source material.

Story: Sword Oratoria is the Danmachi story shown from a read more
