I really, really love Lupin III. I'm definitely a biased reviewer, because Lupin is my favorite anime franchise out of everything I've seen, but I really can't express how much I adore it. Red jacket can really be considered the essence of the Lupin franchise, and is often the one that people think of when anyone says Lupin.

Story: 10
Personally I'm a big fan of episodic type shows, and that's definitely what Lupin is. The story isn't always captivating or original, because after 155 episodes it becomes impossible to not reuse the same gags, but I really enjoy it just because of the fun, read more

Warning: this show is fujoshi bait.

You probably could have gotten that from the summary, actually, but I'm here to say that, as someone who enjoys shipping, both gay and not, Cheer Danshi!! is just... not a good anime. It has a cool premise and a catchy ED, but that's where, for me, the enjoyment ends- Cheer!! suffers from a spectrum of other problems, varying from bad pacing to an over-inflated cast to blatant bl-lovers' fanservice.

Story: 6/10

The story isn't that bad. Cheer!! doesn't have a lot of substance, but that's not necessarily a bad thing for a light slice-of-life sports anime. The storyline is pretty basic read more

Honestly? I don't see why this anime is popular. (In fact, I disliked some of the elements so much that I came here to do something I said I wouldn't: become a big enough weeb to write a serious, deconstructed review for a fuckin' anime.)

I've dropped the show after 14 episodes.

(reposting bc it got accidentally deleted! glad to see a lot of other top reviews share my opinion haha)

Story: 5/10
The story's decent, at least in the beginning. Time travel, fantasy lands, slapstick humor: nothing unusual, and all elements that've proven popular in other animes, but here, it seems to be a poorly executed jumble. read more

Should you watch this anime? Short answer: yes. Long answer: not if you're into mecha anime.

(Kidding.)

I really, really, really like Amaama To Inazuma. It's called 'Sweetness And Lightning' for a reason- in an industry where, even with slice-of-life, apparently it's escalate the stakes or get cancelled, this anime is refreshingly low-conflict and heartwarming. Sometimes I don't want to watch the fate of the world be decided by three gigantic robots in an hour-long mega battle to the death, or see a bunch of high-school age kids beating the (physical or mental) shit out of each other in some competition to stay in their uber-competitive school. read more
