Spilled Paint.

Two simple yet effective words that perfectly describe The God of High School, the ultimate travesty from Summer 2020 and yet another defective product via the courtesy of Crunchyroll. With their recently established “strategic” partnership, Crunchyroll and Webtoon took full advantage of the pandemic of the year 2020 to collaborate and present their lineup of products of “original animated content” known as “Crunchyroll Originals”.

With the second coming of a webtoon adaptation, The God of High School, they’ve managed to fool tens of thousands of people all over the world into thinking this is one of the best action fantasy series to start read more

As a spin-off series and game adaptation, Magia Record had so much weight on its shoulders from the popularity and appraisal of the original parent story of Madoka Magica, and unfortunately it could neither do anything to carry through that pressure nor be a good enough anime series in general.

I consider myself a fan of Studio SHAFT and the original Madoka Magica show, so when the adaptation of what was apparently a spinoff app game of the aforementioned series, I was really looking forward to having that sense of nostalgia. I even kept my expectations in check knowing that the new upcoming spin-off was never read more

Alright, I’ll be real here. I owe an apology and a warning beforehand to everyone who did enjoy this show, but in the end, this is simply my honest opinion about a show I invested a bit too much hope and expectations in when it first aired back in May 2017.

As someone who has followed the Yugioh franchise ever since I was in middle school, I can honestly say, without a shred of reconsideration, that this Yugioh installment was perhaps the most disappointing, if not the worst, installment out of all the anime series up to date, and probably one of the most underwhelming anime read more

I’ll admit that I’m not a particularly big fan of most shojo series out there, but something about this show really impressed me a lot. The first time I heard about this series prior to its debut, I found out that it had an original version that aired way back in 2001, which I promptly went ahead to watch. I ended up finding myself quite disappointed by it due to the number of plot holes, lack of depth in overall cast of characters, uninspiring displays of typical shoujo cliches and tropes. So I went into this reboot, which I jokingly called “Fruits Basket: Zodiachood”, with read more

While I can't completely condone what I was presented with in the end, I couldn't forgive the sins that this sequel to an beloved show had committed.

As an individual who genuinely loved the 1st season of One Punch Man, I had to face the reality before me. Yes, there is no doubt that when the 2nd season was announced a while back, I knew it was never gonna live up to the hype and legacy that its predecessor left behind for it to carry on. When I finally saw the first revealed trailer, saw the quality, and realized that the studio in charge is by read more

In the words of Charles Barkley:

Okay, seriously, people…why does it have to be so GOD DAMN hard to write an actual good fantasy story nowadays? Where’s the sense of originality? Where’s the sense of creativity? Apparently as of right now, anime is under a mini-crisis, and it involves the all-too-familiar infamous genre of “isekai”. It’s not the genre itself that is bad, it’s just the endless supply of all these cheap knockoff shows, written and produced purely for the sake of easy cash grabs and light novel promotions. Now, in all honesty, I will not condone the lack of originality in a series as read more

Dororo (Anime) add (All reviews)
It’s one thing to have reboots, when you consider the likes of shows like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Hunter x Hunter (2011), Hellsing Ultimate, Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works, and Fruits Basket (2019). It’s another thing to have adaptations like Devilman Crybaby and Parasyte The Maxim where they fundamentally reinvented the stories to better suit the modern day’s audience. It’s yet another thing to have remakes like Gatchaman Crowds, Casshern Sins, and Yatterman Night, where the shows compose of completely different continuities and/or stories from their original franchise. So where does that put the likes of Dororo, the 2019 TV series? In my honest opinion, it’s read more

As the curtain closed on the season of Winter 2019, the epidemic known as JC Staph Infection had claimed yet another victim from the masses of announced sequels to previously aired shows. This time, it’s the adaptation of a popular Dengeki Bunko light novel series known as A Certain Magical Index (which is alternatively called Toaru Majutsu No Index). It is practically inexcusable to have people wait out just over seven years for another season, and then come out with such a disappointing product. Having watched and enjoyed the previous two seasons, I was really looking forward to an announcement for a third one. So read more

I’ve seen plenty of romantic comedy anime series that draw interest with their own sort of game, but never before have I seen such a series like this one strut their stuff and dance it out like this one.

Adapted from a seinen manga series published by Viz Media and Shueisha, produced by A-1 Pictures, and directed by Mamoru Hatakeyama (the very same person who contributed to the likes of SHAFT shows like Madoka Magica and Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko), “Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War” is a rom-com show that seems to be aimed more for mature viewers due to its rather unique and twisted take read more

I’ve never seen a sequel to a popular series so butchered since Michael Bay’s stand-alone film Transformers: Age of Extinction in 2014.

This review is coming from someone who actually enjoyed the Date A Live series quite a bit, especially the “semi-canon” film back in 2015. So when I first heard about the series getting a third season, I was quite elated, to say the least. However, not too long after, I received the unsettling news of the original studio that handled the previous two seasons and the OVAs, Production IMS, undergoing bankruptcy and shutting down permanently, and thus the project was handed off to JC read more
