Any anime fan should know very well that with any piece of fiction, emotions can be a wonderful thing and make a series amazing, and the anime industry is well aware of that. When any story is able to effectively utilize many different kinds of emotions, it will definitely succeed. With that being said, To Your Eternity’s unique style is quite appealing, and most people get interested in this, hence its high popularity and reception, but it’s that very same characteristic that also brings it down. As someone who’s watched A Silent Voice from the very same author of this series, I’m shocked by how read more

The entirety of the time I watched the SSSS series, both Gridman and Dynazenon, one big question kept bugging me: what ever has happened to the likes of Studio Trigger and that sense of creative freedom?

SSSS Dynazenon is yet another tokusatsu edition via the courtesy of the tag team of Akira Amemiya and Keiichi Hasegawa, the latter of whom is well known for his work on the 1990s Gridman The Hyper Agent series from which the SSSS series is derived from. As one might suspect right away, Dynazenon is connected to the SSSS Gridman anime from 2018, unsurprisingly enough. Much like its predecessor, Dynazenon is read more

Horimiya had the potential to be a truly great series, but it immensely squandered it.

I genuinely wanted to like everything about it from the story to its characters to its gorgeous aesthetics and visual directing. I truly desired to see this show as something deep, dynamic, wholesome, and metaphorical. I wanted to believe this was a series that can boast and fulfill its unique takes and subversions of the typical romcom genre. But as both an adaptation and an anime in general, Horimiya just simply failed to take care of the basic fundamentals.

The story initally starts out fairly strong with the hooking premise of a read more

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

Jun Maeda is practically a broken record at this point. It’s honestly a tragedy that the aforementioned quote quite accurately defines the repeat criminal offenses of the all-too-familiar and infamous writer, whom also co-founded the visual novel studio known as KEY. Having previously created and put much of his work into previous popular titles like Kanon, Clannad, Little Busters, Angel Beats, and Charlotte, Maeda unveiled yet another product of his continually recycled method named Kamisama Ni Natta Hi (also known as The Day I Became A God), promptly read more

*Slight spoilers*

Akudama Drive is one of those easily captivating and enticing sci-fi action flick series. Lots of flashing aesthetics, bombastic action, sheer madness, ludicrous characters, and a cool-looking hi-tech environment. With all of this in one package, being created and written by none other than Kazutaka Kodaka, the creator of the Danganronpa franchise, well as being influenced by classic films like Pulp Fiction, Blade Runner, and The Ghost in the Shell, it’s not surprising that many people would instantly be hooked on it and praise it so much.

But the truth is, Akudama Drive is akin to a bunch of discombobulated parts tossed into a blender read more

Majo no Tabitabi was not only one of the most pleasant surprises for me in 2020, but perhaps one of the best anime series to come out of 2020.

Adapted from a light novel series written by Jougi Shiraishi, directed by Toshiyuki Kubooka (who had also previously directed the Berserk film trilogy), and produced by C2C, a studio not known for a huge resume outside of their contribution to WorldEnd (commonly referred to as SukaSuka), Majo no Tabitabi would seem like your typical run-of-the-mill, cutesy, lighthearted fantasy series with a prominent and colorful witch-themed setting. With such read more

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
