Before starting My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU (which I will shorten to Oregairu for the remainder of this review), its name and the synopsis given here on MAL made this anime sound like a typical harem romantic comedy that combines a generic storyline with overused jokes - at least in my opinion - despite the lack of a harem tag. What a surprise it was to me after the first few episodes when I realized that Oregairu was different and much better than I had anticipated - despite not having much of the romance and comedy as suggested by the title.

I rarely ever find myself liking a series or movie about detectives and strange mysteries because I find that they become extremely repetitive, always following the same formula over and over again where your protagonist(s) uses the evidence at a crime scene to solve a crime. What sets Gosick apart from these aformentioned shows is that it isn't entirely focused on the mysteries and detective work but also places a lot of emphasis on the relationship between the main characters, adding a sort of slice-of-life-ish and romantic side to a story which would have otherwise been a more generic detective show.

It's a fairly common trend in just about most action mediums, whether it be anime or not, to focus more on the action than the story. Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom is part of that minority which focuses more on the story, and I have to say that it does a really good job of doing so without taking away from what makes an action medium well... an action medium.

The story follows the twisted and tragic life of Zwei, a teenage boy who has no recollection of his past, and is forced to become an assassin under the guidance of Ein, also known as read more

Something that I've seen all too often and which disappoints me greatly in all forms of media, whether it be anime or not, is when an anime has an extremely intriguing and unpredictable story but fails to execute it in a manner befitting of how good the actual story is. And sadly enough, Mirai Nikki is one such series which pains me to watch due to how poorly executed its good story is. However, personally, Mirai Nikki was still an absolute blast to watch due to the unpredictable nature of its story and the rather strange but extremely interesting cast of characters.

Guilty Crown was definitely an absolute blast to watch due to its amazing visuals and amazing sound. However, it was extremely difficult to really immerse yourself in a story that is incoherent and full of loopholes. In essence, I award Guilty Crown with the title of Michael Bay's Transformers of anime.

Story: 5/10

Guilty Crown's story isn't bad per se. It's actually a really really good and interesting story, one which actually had me excited from when I started this anime. It follows the primary protagonist Shu as he meets Inori, a famous singer who also happens to be part of the terrorist organisation Funeral Parlour. His read more

I'm extremely skeptical when it comes to any sort of animated entertainment and horror. I went it into this anime having been told this was one of the best horror anime, and I have to say I was slightly disappointed. To be fair, I never asked why it was so good so for all I knew, this anime couldve been praised for things other than its horror setting. And that was exactly how I felt.

Story: 8/10

The story follows the bland and over curious Kouichi, a new transfer student to extremely strange and eerie high school, as he meets the mysterious and beautiful Mei, a girl read more

Toradora is not just a romantic comedy or a comedic romance; it is both a comedy and a romance. If Toradora was simply either a romance or a comedy, I reckon it would still be pretty darn good. And that is how good i find Toradora to be.

P.S- sorry but this review is kinda long so...

Story: 10/10

The story revolves primarioy around Taiga and Ryuji. Ryuji loves Taiga's best friend and Taiga love Ryuji's best friend. And so they decide to help each other in their quest to attain the love of those who they each love. Simple right? Nope. Taiga can be described using most, read more
