Kaichuu, what to say about it. It's short, it's cliched, it's nearly without any actual sort of plot, but hell I enjoyed it anyway. For the few minutes it took to watch this I was pretty entertained.

As far as the story goes there really isn't much to say. The length allows no room for any sort of actually engaging story. It is basically just there to fascilitate the jokes and as an excuse to have a cute guy in a skirt. They try and set up the story with an opening bit of narration talking about some archery prodigy who disappeared from the archery world. read more

Kachou no Koi... it's unashamed, inappropriate, crass, disgusting and full of stereotypes. But it also happens to be absolutely hilarious. From the get go you realize that this is nothing more than a shallow and (forgive the poor choice of words) ballsy, little OVA.

The story is not a factor in this anime. The story is there mostly to facilitate punchlines and set up hilarious situations. It goes through the motions for your average BL, but with the over the top, sexually explicit and unrelenting humor, the lack of any real originality story-wise becomes perfectly acceptable. 7/10

For it's obvious low budget the art surprised me. Refusing read more

After watching the amazing 5 Centimeters Per Second, I figure I owed it to myself to watch Shinkai Makoto's first work Voices of a Distant Star. Reviews praised it and I assumed that it must be good. Well you know what they say about assuming.

Right off the bat I was unsure about the story. I liked the concept of love separated by distance as it worked quite well in 5cm Per Second, but the idea of lagging text messages is just ludicrous. You'd think that in the year 2046 we'd have invented a more effective form of communication, but I guess Shinkai Makoto didn't think read more

This was a very interesting read. It was a story full of heart and heartbreak and realizing who you are.

The story is, in a nutshell, about time travel. I wasn't very attracted to the idea at first, but I'm glad that I chose to read this. The story is carried out in a very literaturical (I don't even think this is a word, but whatever) fashion with Hiroshi narrating through the whole thing. After reading the first few chapters you start seeing the beauty of the story.

The art was very different than what I am used to seeing, but very good. The character's emotions really read more

This is my first review and, honestly, I feel this is a manga worth reviewing. What I really liked about this manga was that even though it is a very typical shoujo story-wise it is a little different. While most other shoujo become very dramatic and angst ridden in the end, this one wasn't. I'm not gonna give any spoilers, but it is very consistent in feeling all the way through.

Now the art, I don't know what it was about it, but I just really liked it. It was definitely shoujo, but not TOO much. The eyes were fine in proportion to the faces, clothes read more
