(NOTE: Some spoilers up ahead)
(This rather LONG review is going to be covering the entire series as a whole.)
---------------
When I think back on how I first started watching this series, which happens to be a RPG game adaptation, I didn’t know what to really think, and now that the show has come to a conclusion, I now wonder what kept me going with this show. How is it that I personally enjoyed this more than some of those other popular (and sometimes overrated) horror/psycho/thriller shows? Well, let’s proceed on to the next floor…

STORY: 7/10
The majority of the story is basically the two MCs navigating through read more

Summer 2018 brought in some amazing shows like Isekai Maou, Cells At Work, Angels of Death, Overlord III, Revue Starlight, Banana Fish, SNK III, etc. However, it has had its equal share of mediocre to absolutely wasteful shows.

I really don’t think I need to make a long ass essay about how overused the isekai genre is in the recent years...that’s someone else’s job, honestly.

When people were saying Isekai Smartphone might have a second season, it's funny that this series came around not too long after. You know what? Here's this:

Instead of your typical romance series, this story takes up on a little twist where a 17 year old high school girl falls head over heels for her 45 year old manager of her part-time job. I must say...this series is such a brilliant reprieve from your usual generic love stories, and it doesn't try forcing stuff, either. I will try to be a bit brief with the details while explaining the best I can.

STORY: An unfortunate accident for our main heroine turns out as a new opportunity in the most unlikely of situations. The story really shines due read more

Idk why I try to put Netflix original anime series or films on my "Plan To Watch" list, and just end up not watching them at all. Something about them, the ways even the trailers of those shows mostly present myself, just somehow do something offputting to me on a personal level. Long story short, I'm not exactly the biggest fan of anything that is directly from Netflix...maybe it has to do with the ocean of funds they have just to churn out discombobulations or abominations to prioritize quantity over quality for catching the attention of the portion of the world population dedicated to Japanese-produced read more

(P.S. I’m probably gonna have this review drowned out by the amount of negative reviews, anyways, but I gotta do what I gotta do, since I don’t try to be an elitist or some picky critic.)
Trigger brought us the likes of Kill La Kill, Little Witch Academia, and Kiznaiver…all great shows, imo, and all having been nominated as a bookmark savior of anime (anime never needed saving, though, imo…LOL).
Then, this happens: a three-way project of Trigger, A1, and CloverWorks (A1’s subsidiary) calling Darling in the FranXX. I’m going to make it clear right now: while Trigger did stop being involved in the production of the read more

(WARNING: a bit of spoilers up ahead)
So this is another generic, medieval-like fantasy show with the usual dense male protagonist and everything basically rigged with comedy and awkward RPG-like vibes, as well as the cliché transitions of the mc easily making companions throughout the journey. This is the kind of series that usually just starts okay, progresses badly, and ends awful, for the most part.
Well…for the first 6 or 9 episodes, it seemed that way, at least. However, for me at least, it actually turned out to be a lot more than what meets the eye. Granted, this series still had its flaws in terms read more

Honestly, I couldn't really bring myself to like most shows with female "half-breeds"....aka, humans or human-like beings with physical features of a specific animal. So I wasn't really holding very high expectations for this series. I honestly expected it to be one of those disposable game adaptations with really nothing but fanservice, idol stuff, and awkward cliches. Also, since it's in the sports genre, a particular category I'm not particularly fond of, that further hammed up my doubts going into the first few episodes.

BOY, I was wrong. Instead, this turned out to be a great favorite of mine in Spring 2018, and perhaps one of read more

Preliminary
(This is a prelim review, so I may or may not submit a new review after this series ends, or may end up just resubmitting this entirely.)

For the most part, anime series that showcase the realities of life are usually really solid or even great. Here, this is not the case at all. Over-the-top edginess DOES NOT equal good storywriting whatsoever, and series like Ousama Game and this series are near perfect examples of what NOT to do when making series with dark elements and plot points. Also, this series seems to lack a true sense of identity: it's as if this series hasn't made read more

One of the most hyped-up anime films in the recent years, Kimi No Na Wa tells a story about two completely different people: a boy from the city, and a girl from the countryside...both wanting to break out of the shell of their rather redundant lives. By the sheer chance of fate and a big help from the oh-so-supernatural essence of the cosmos, they go through a weird case of experiencing each other's livelihood....via body switching. From there, the drama and romance begins...

It took me a while to actually get myself to watch it a good while after the blu-ray and DVD versions came out, read more

Preliminary
(The error in the entry of number of episodes for the review was due to the series previously marked as 14 episodes, as well as my own mistake of not doublechecking the error.. I had only recently discovered and remembered this mistakes just recently as of 8/8/2018, but I’ve decided to leave it be.)

There are five main types of anime series that I recognize:
-series that excite and appeal with their jam-packed action and jam-packed plot/conflict
-series that intend to make us laugh our rear ends off or cringe in pain
-series that are meant to be relaxing and fun while showing the characters’ social activities
-series that read more
