Very promising initial work from new studio TriF, I felt like I had traveled back to the days of the more experimental ovas and specials that appeared in the wake of Gainax rocking the industry, or one of the better young animator training project short films.

In a time where passion projects like FLCL and Gunbuster are being dragged out of their well earned rests as soulless husks who don’t have a creative bone in their bodies, Mecha-ude is a breath of fresh air. A new studio with mostly new staff, a new IP that while not incredibly innovative offers a new idea on some read more

Sick of all those modern anime that try and shoehorn in idol singers into genres that have nothing to do with them, I decided to go back to the good old days of anime to watch this show about a group of fighter pilots that are also… idols.

Oh.

This ova is strange, a group of idol singers who are also also sisters and an elite fighter squadron defending Japan from… someone. Seriously, I don’t actually know who they’re fighting against, especially in episode 1 where a dogfight breaks out and we never learn who the other side is at all.

Also, why Japan decided that idols were read more

Rest easy Mal, for the Savior is here.

My favorite mecha anime in a long time, Aquarion Logos is a tragically misunderstood show that seems to get unwarranted hate for not being a sequel to the original Aquarion. (Uh yeah, it’s a spinoff guys.) or just being generally weird, which it is.

Logos is a very weird show, but that’s why it’s so great. It isn’t like other anime, it isn’t cliched, or predictable, you have no idea what to expect in any episode. All the characters are huge atypical weirdos unlike the heroes you’d expect from a super robot styled mecha action anime, and I’m thankful read more

I had no idea what this was when I saw it pop up on crunchyroll, so I took a chance and watched it. I regret this immensely. At times I couldn't stop laughing, at times I was on the verge of crying, but regardless of my emotional state the entire time I watched this OVA I wanted to die.

The story is absolute nonsense where some idiots accidentally unleash the ultimate evil from a coffin in the basement of a university: two Gothic Lolitas who are also super powered zombies! The rest of the movie is about them fighting said zombies in baffling stupid ways. Until read more

Expecting this movie to never be subbed, I was ready to give up when out of nowhere a group released fansubs for it! In a state of shock I downloaded the movie and watched it, having only a vague idea of what it even was. I had originally found out about this show after witnessing some impressive clips on animation while browsing random things on sakugabooru, and I decided to watch it because of them, I was not disappointed.

So, what even is this movie then? well it's a fantasy adventure story on the surface, where five girls are transported to a doomed fantasy land and read more

“We can’t introduce a new character this late into the story, the audience won’t accept an ending like that” ~ Character in Re:Creators two minutes after the show itself does exactly this for their climactic battle scene of the final ‘arc’ of the ‘story.’

I can’t recall any other time where the series I was watching is actively aware of what’s wrong with itself to a degree that they say not to do the terrible ideas they themselves are doing at the same time, as if this somehow justifies them. (it’s meta commentary on storytelling guys, it’s deep!)

Move over Re:Creators, Fate/Apocrypha is here to show you how a real TRAINWRECK is made.
The worst anime of the year so far, and I say that both as an incredibly mad fanboy of fate who hates this mockery of a series he loves, but also as a man who finds shows this utterly poor in every way to be outright offensive. There are obviously some mixed opinions on this show in this review section, but unlike the other reviews I will now proceed to explain to you what the ACTUAL problem with this show is.

Let’s get started with the most contentious point, the animation. No, read more

The Twin Angel series is based off of a series of slot machine games, first as a 3 episode ova, and then a soft reboot/remake of those ovas in the form of a 12 episode tv anime. The original is a smartly written, fun parody of the magical girl genre.

Twin Angel Break is… a Pretty Cure knockoff. If you’re reading this you probably have some understanding of precure’s existence, but for those who don’t, it’s the biggest magical girl anime franchise and is the sole reason this genre hasn’t fallen into obscurity like super robots. (Please come back my sweet, sweet robot anime) and read more

Berserk (Anime) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Berserk is one of the most beloved manga series of all time, with a successful anime in the nineties that covered the famed “golden age” arc. But the manga is so much more than that arc, so when a series of movies were announced, fans were rightfully disappointed that it was a retelling of the same arc. Well, come 2016 and we’re finally out of the golden age, with an anime promising to show us Guts as the “Black Swordsman,” but can it do justice to the legendary manga it spawned from? Let’s find out!

When adapting a long, dark fantasy manga with highly detailed art, read more

Notes. (Manga) add (All reviews)
One of the earliest works by writer and co founder of the company Type-Moon, Kinoko Nasu, Notes is the foundation of the shared universe across most of his works such as Tsukihime or Fate/Stay Night, which is commonly referred to as the Nasuverse. It’s a bit strange to say it was the foundation when the timeline of Notes makes it chronologically last, as it’s set far in the future.

Notes, or Angel Notes as it’s also known is a short story written for an angel themed anthology magazine, and it’s also an incredibly hard thing to describe. I’m not sure if I’m even fit to judge read more
