Disclaimer: An entire bottle of Mount Gay Black Barrel, an undisclosed amount of Appleton 21, and multiple cans of Bacardi Rum Punch (to use as chasers) were consulted in the creation of this review. Plus however much Barrell Armida is in this rocks glass. This entire show and this entire review itself were both additionally and respectively viewed and created over the course of about nineteen hours. Alcohol and its affects were therefore heavily involved in all relevant processes. Hopefully you enjoy…

Being a drunk corpse, I figured a much more pertinent use of my time than watching Cyberpunk: Edgerunners—as much fun as that show was—would ...

I’d become a fairly well-oiled machine when it came to writing seasonal reviews and keeping up with everything airing in any given season, but thanks to this unhinged alcoholic downward spiral I’ve been on these past few months, you’re going to be seeing relatively few SingleH reviews for this Summer, 2022. I know—good news for many MAL users, but I was almost able to make a comeback for an unlikely reason, and that is I got sick. Rather, I am currently sick as of time of writing. Upon first realizing this, I was ...

Kanokari really pissed people off when it first came out, but given my exhaustion with oversensitive outrage culture, I completely failed to take the outcry seriously. I only watched season one after it ended, and only then did I realize how badly I missed out. With that said, though, I’m also kinda glad I missed out, because writing for season two means I no longer have to waste time introducing the story and characters, since the audience is already familiar with the premise. And gosh…what a premise… Kanokari, morally, is utterly repugnant, and while that fact really upset me when I first started watching it, ...

First of all, just to operate with full disclosure here, I’d like to address the fact that, at this point, my brain is just complete mush. I’m at the point now where I can physically feel how much more difficult it’s become, in merely the last five or six weeks, for my fingers to functionally type out my thoughts, jumbled as they already are. I’m not even sure I’m intellectually capable of critically analyzing an anime such as this anymore. I mean—fuck me backwards—some would say I was never intellectually capable of critically analyzing anything. “Thank god you quit reviewing, your reviews were borderline headache ...

Anime openings truly are magical, aren’t they? The excite us, inspire us, and stay in our memories for years. Just this season, the OP for SPY×FAMILY, where it begins looking like a hyper-stylized spy thriller, but then quickly devolves into children’s artwork perfectly encapsulated the charm of the series; the OP for Summertime Render was so slick and atmospheric; and Paripi Koumei’s OP was a brilliant modern classic for obvious reasons, but the two runner-ups have to be Shikimori-san and Love After World Domination. They were both absolutely stellar, and Shikimori’s was so delightful, it almost successfully gaslighted me into thinking I was actually watching ...

This show is a piece of trash, and I’m shocked I or anyone else ever gave it the time of day. The first four episodes of season one are decent, and while the production issues which would later come to plague the series were already rearing their ugly heads even back then—bad CG, bits of clunky animation, and so on—the actual story they told, at least as far as isekai is concerned, was fairly compelling, and the firestorm of internet controversy they ignited was thoroughly hilarious. However, immediately after this, the series devolved into the most generic isekai harem you’ve ever seen, and nothing about ...

Spy x Family (Anime) add
SPY×FAMILY is the first mainstream anime to come out in a very long time that I can confidently say is worth the hype. I mean, it might be a bit overhyped, but what isn’t these days? I expected a generic, uninteresting, gimmicky piece of shounen-action trash, and what I got was a clever and oh-so-endearing slice of life with lovable characters, fantastic visual set pieces, a brilliant setting, and, if you can believe it, a genuinely funny sense of humor and gut-busting comedic timing. It’s way more simplistic and tensionless than I expected it to be, and that is a good thing. I recently wrote ...

What’s that meme about insanity? Like how the definition of “insanity” is doing the exact same thing over and over again expecting a different result? I’m not particularly up to date on internet humor, so I may very well be misremembering it, but either way, I’m definitely going insane. The universe keeps trying to tell me no one wants to hear me rag on this show, and I keep refusing to listen. The show is far too beloved at this point, and the only people still watching it are fans who have been watching since season one and now have a vested interest in being ...

When reviewing part one, I said this show suffered from unfunny comedy and too much repetition, but even having read the manga myself beforehand, I don’t think I ever truly realized how much worse my own complaints could get. Part two of Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu is excruciatingly shallow, and it proceeds to accomplish little aside from proving my point that there was no substance to be had beyond the very first episode. In my first review, I explained how the manga this anime is based on was originally a one-shot, and how it was clear that the one-shot's success is what prompted the long-running ...

Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is Komi-san wa Comyushou desu if it wasn’t trying, and even that show only really tries for a single episode. It’s a school-life gag comedy where every character is a joke, and none of them are funny. Every character is introduced and you unenthusiastically realize, “oh…there’s a punch line coming here, isn’t there?” And then it comes and you go, “oh…I guess that was it?” And the answer is always yes, and it always makes you roll your eyes or simply yawn. Komi-san wa Comyushou desu has a thematic core in the idea that appearances can be deceiving, and despite what you ...
