Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou, otherwise known as, "Everyday Life with Monster Girls" is probably as generic as it gets when it comes to ecchi harems. It has the typical nice guy, the girls that fawn over him and everything that make comedic harems a genre. None of that discredits Monster Musume for what it is though and for it to take those simple generic ideas and hit all the 'right' buttons truly makes it its own.

Whether it be changing the girls to 'monster girls', twisting the personalities to an extreme, adding sexy but hilarious interactions with the MC and girls or trying to build read more

Stepping into the world of Black Bullet, I was only told of negative things and not to expect much from a "Lolis save the world" kind of show. Unfortunately enough, a lot of what I heard held true, but not everything and those little girls weren't apart of that problem.

Black Bullet essentially is an anime that tries hard to breach the conventional post-apocalyptic human-survival setting, but is unable to do so. The show gets stuck at a crosswalk confused if it wants to do something different or stick with the same formula. Perhaps Black Bullet's greatest vice is the pacing, which is abnormally quick.

Sidonia no Kishi is truly a marvel. When I began the first episode and laid my eyes on the CGI, I felt a bit underwhelmed and my opinion began to waver on the show; However, SnK soon made me realize that I could have never been so wrong and I'm glad for that. Sidonia no Kishi is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi anime where everyday mankind lives in fear of being decimated, but continues to survive on an enormous ship known as Sidonia. There struggle is against an alien-species known as the Gauna which have brought humanity to its knees before and the only thing between read more

If I were to describe Mushishi in just a few words, it would have to be 'story-telling masterpiece'. Mushishi held this title and I'm proud to say that Mushishi Zoku Shou holds it as well. When such an eloquent blend of story writing, narration, atmosphere, art and sound come together it creates a fantastic, bone-chilling new world that those whom have the pleasure of viewing can't help but gawk at. Whether there is sadness, happiness, anguish or joy Mushishi Zoku Shou has delivered these feelings in a presentation so well-wrapped even its flaws cannot be seen. Mushishi Zoku Shou has been a remarkably soothing read more

It's about time I set off and write a review for this anime.

GO BIRD!

Gatchaman Crowds is one of the rare anime this season that caught my attention not so much for what it's about, but the vibrant colors and interesting art-style, so when I began watching this, I honestly didn't know what to expect. I like to think of Gatchaman as the Mecha Power Rangers.
(Although I guess the Power Rangers did have there own giant mecha)

The story is rather simple and straight to the point, a group fights everyday for the sake of defending Earth and our faithful MC was chosen to read more

Such misfortune! Here comes another review!

One thing I always find great about movies based off of series isn't just more of what I like, but to see how the company handles it, so with J.C. Staff holding the reigns I had expectations and those expectations were surprisingly met. The production value truly shows with Toaru Majutsu no Index: Endymion no Kiseki when it came to top-notch visuals, soundtrack and even though it wasn't as good as it could be, the plot wasn't too bad itself. It seems this movie has had a better share of miracles instead of misfortune.

What does a harem tend to be filled with? Girls, girls, girls, and the guy surrounded by them, but what can we do to mix it up in a market filled with plenty of generic harems and bland characters? I present to you, a harem filled with not just any girls, but monster girls.

Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou is an ecchi harem manga that has everything you'd expect. Comedy, Boobs, accidental sexual encounters and of course, plenty of girls in love with our MC. The fantastic part about Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou however, is the twist on not only the girls being Monster read more

A good gag anime is one that can make us laugh. A great gag anime is one that can not only make us laugh, but can creep on us with the unexpected.

Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san. Z is a sequel which you can expect the same things from its predecessor. More characters, laughs, slapstick, silly gory scenes, lewd jokes, the works, but one of the grand things about the sequel is not only the comedy, but the sudden twists in events. The sequel is a great addition with more antics and problems needed to be solved than before, by our cast.

What comes down to a lot of manga being successful in the long run is if whether it is popular or not. In Kurogane's case it unfortunately missed the mark and was axed, but this doesn't reduce its value any less.

Kurogane is a sports shounen manga based around the sport kendo in a high school setting. However, the author puts a small supernatural twist on it to try to make it 'fresh'. Unfortunately, since it was axed we never get to see Kurogane's full potential as it sets itself up for something that could have been great, but never could show it.

So I know what you're thinking... A 10? Really?

Yes, really and with good reason.

Today if you ask a lot of manga readers what makes all these romance or slice of life manga that take a typical school or 'normal' life setting so infinitely great an answer tends to be "It's not boring like real-life." or "It's so exciting/thrilling compared to how it would happen in reality." Anyone who thinks this way now I'd like you to take a seat and read this manga. Chikan Otoko(Molester Man) is a 21 chapter manga with comedy, romance, drama and so-on. What makes this manga particularly different from read more
