Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!? is a heartwarming anime about a boy who helped a girl realize her lifelong dream about becoming a teacher. It promotes wholesome family values and shows how much that same boy cares for his mother and infant little sister. As we tag along with the adorable further adventures of this boy and girl, we can see how this girl learned to open up to people despite being incredibly shy in her youth. Labeled by a "demon" by her students for her strict tutelage, in time we are able to observe that this girl has a super-cute side read more

After clicking the "Write a review" button, MAL asked me to update my anime to indicate that I'm currently watching Nobunaga-sensei no Osanazuma. At that point, with my finger hovering over the button, I had to consider if I really wanted people to know I was watching this show. Would this information be used against me somehow in the future, for example, in a court of law? Would it impact my ability to land a job in education? However, in order to promote this kind of brazen disregard for propriety, modesty, or human decency, I gathered my resolve and plowed on read more

Delightful. That's how I would describe this anime. Before your eyes glaze over because you see the "harem" tag, you should give this one a chance. I finally figured it out.

You see, the question is not, "how could any girl fall for an MC like this?" Nope. If you're asking yourself that, you're really saying to yourself, "I'm not good-looking, super-smart, or super-talented. It's ridiculous to think a girl would fall for me, much less a gaggle of them like this stupid show has." That's just a lack of self-confidence. I have it on good authority that read more

Domestic na Kanojo is not so bad that it deserves the 2 and 3 point reviews that are at the top of the review list. Despite having over a 7 on MAL currently, these reviews and the plot description given above might give potential viewers the wrong idea regarding the quality of this anime. Is it good? I must admit that I didn't exactly enjoy it all the way through.

Initially, I very much liked the anime. Yes, it starts with something of a highly improbable setup. These kinds of things simply do not happen in real life, that your first read more

Revisions is neither the worst anime ever made nor is it a groundbreaking masterpiece. This anime is worth watching for its dedication to creating a distinct artistic impression with a heartfelt message. It's interesting how low of a score it has on MAL given that many a worse anime has scored far better here. Some of the characters in the story have annoying character traits (that serve a purpose), the story is full of pseudo-science plot holes, and the production process itself uses CG animation that may alienate some viewers. If you can get past these largely superficial problems, digging deeper you read more

A red, misty haze obscures my vision and I start wanting to obliterate things when I think about Toradora. It is exactly the TYPE of anime I love: a romantic comedy with great character designs, voice acting, lots of fun slice-of-life drama, and funny dialogue. There are love triangles, character developments, and genuinely moving moments. However, several things just absolutely ruin the enjoyment for me. It's a comedy that is just unfunny sometimes (no, Taiga's violent nature is not funny). It's a slice of life that offers up frustrating instead of soothing plot developments. It's a romance without ultimately read more

Kokoro Connect is among my favorite anime of all time. Essentially a slice of life with a supernatural twist, it does not appeal to the audience via action, adventure, or fantastic visuals. Rather, it is an exploration of the human condition. It deconstructs what humans consider their personal identity by exposing gender roles, emotions, and even innermost thoughts. Although it is saddled by some melodrama and several of the main characters have less than appealing personalities, Kokoro Connect appeals to me with its bravery and willingness to tackle uncomfortable issues.

By now you should know the plot: a group of five students read more

Ah, Cheeky Angel. This is one of my favorite anime, but I must admit a little bit of a love-hate relationship with it. Perhaps the most extensive gender-bender anime of them all, it truly delves deeply into exploring what it means to be a woman or a man. Even factoring out my personal fascination with the subject matter, Cheeky Angel stands on its own merits with good humor, surprisingly well-developed romance, and daily situations that should please any slice-of-life fan. And yet, it is also has easily the worst artwork and character designs I have ever seen. If you can read more

I sometimes wonder if an anime that falls just short of being a masterpiece is worse than a true stinker. Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu is one missed opportunity short of greatness. While the production values are not particularly high, it has the rare courage to take an outrageous idea and just go for it. It starts out with great setup but a rather routine monster-of-the-week plot. But then the story takes progressive turns into ever more daringly deviant territory. And then it misses the mark in the last two episodes. I thought it would zig but instead it zagged. read more

Whether you enjoy Space Battleship Yamato 2199 or not will depend on the things you value in your anime. I cannot say it is without flaw or will be liked by all viewers. For one, this is a remake of a much beloved classic, one which was actually aired in the United States as the rebranded "Star Blazers" dubbed TV version. As is often the case with remakes, different camps emerge, with some fans embracing the new version and some criticizing the changes from the original. In the case of 2199, some changes are welcome but many problems (which my childhood read more
