Sometimes an anime comes along that changes your perspective of the media. It questions your core values, your beliefs and makes you wonder will we ever see another anime like this. For some it can leave an empty void making you wonder what will you watch next.
But enough about incredible shows like Steins;Gate and Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Im sadly here to review Akiba's Trip.

I would like for everyone to remember at this point that a Review involves expressing ones opinion. If you don't like it? Well good for you, I'll give you a chocolate digestive if I see you around (and a cup read more

The 3rd stage of Initial D manages to wrap up some unanswered we had from Stage 1 and Stage 2 , while overall keeping a good interesting pace and spotlight on the characters.
Instead of my previous reviews for the series so far Im not going to split everything with headers for the specific elements im just going to mix parts in.

The story covers alot of plot points throughout and manages to actually cover everything throughout well. Cause this is a sequel I don't think I can say too much from this point on without spoiling anything in terms of story. The story manages to introduce read more

As a dive further and further into this series. I see how truly underrated this is in terms of people seeing this. It deserves more credit than its ever got. Sometimes we don't need superpowers, complicated plot or complex areas to make a good series. This series so far has proved to me you need a good character base and exciting moments.

Story : 8/10 -

The story once again follows Vin Dis- Takumi as he keeps diving further and further into street racing. Now to give more of a basis than the review I did on the First Stage (insert plug here) im gonna dive read more

So its pretty clear I am a fan of anime due to being on this website and of course I am a fan of cars. Combine the both and you have a recipe for success! It surprises me how a simple story about street racing can be so good!

Story : 9/10 -

So this story follows the main character Takumi as he is introduced to the world of street racing. Now hes quite aloof and seems like someone who knows zero about cars. From that you would think what does he know? But turns out he's the anime version of Vin Diesel's character in Fast read more

Bleach (Manga) add (All reviews)
The ending has offically came. After 15 years of publication which experienced a some big highs and many lows, the long winding series of Bleach has reached its conclusion.
Now before I get into the highs and lows of this series I will say its quite a mixed reaction in terms of its ending (without spoilers) because on one hand I was glad that a manga that has suffered more than it needs to at least got some form of conclusion albeit rushed and on the other it is really sad to see a series thats definitely helped bring people into the world of manga end read more

Bleach (Anime) add (All reviews)
Many years ago the big 3 rained supreme over any form of anime or manga. With the 2nd of the big 3 finally coming to a close soon with the manga ending, closing a chapter (pardon the pun) on an series that brought so many people into anime I thought I'd write a review on the series :) .

Story: 7.5/10 (not 7 or 8) -

Strange rating I know but I will explain. To provide a basis for the story without spoiling much for newcomers, Bleach follows Ichigo Kurosaki through his journey as a Subsitute Soul Reaper after obtaining his powers almost through accident. As with read more

Fan service is something that has become so prominent in anime as a form of media, that anything including a vast amount of it is instantly described as rubbish and anyone that likes it is instantly told "you only like it cause of fan service" .
I'm not going to disagree with that because fan service can easily take away from a show but I think an anime should get credit where credit is due instead of just being classed as fan service as this is a show that has an interesting story (when not fully fan service) with interesting characters.

Story 7/10:

Basketball is a sport that gives you an incredibly rush of energy, so its only fair that an anime based on it gives you a similar experience.

When I watched the first season of Kuroko no Basket and I saw how overpowered some of the characters were, I didn't know how they would manage to top that, this season doesn't take long in showing that. A warning for potential spoilers below.

Just before I start writing this review, can we all agree the Zone is like a cheat code? It seriously amps up how good characters can be immensely and makes some almost unstoppable.

Story 9/10 :

SAO. I think the best way to describe this show is that it is a tale of two halves
(English football reference for the win!) . The first half is an interesting plot with a nice love story and characters I could get behind (still a few problems which i will get too).
The 2nd half of this show basically takes everything I liked about the show and gives it a theoretical middle finger.

Anyway I will get onto the heavy stuff straight from the start. The plot. Spoilers are below! Warning!

The season starts off with an interesting concept, a strong overpowered character (yes that can be annoying read more

Preliminary
Ah following Naruto Shippuden has been a hard hard task. Everytime you sit down to watch an episode on a Thursday/Friday you can't be sure what show you will get. The good story developed from the manga. Or the fillers.

The fight scenes and the music are done excellently well especially certain fights from the manga that I will not mention because of spoilers. When adapting the manga the show does a good job and is commended for that.

The problem with this series falls in the same category as the original Naruto series. The fillers just destroy this series and its to the stage where it read more
