*Knock knock knock*
Who’s there?
A toilet
A toilet who?
A toi-let down

At Kanome high school lives Hanako-kun. He’s a wish granter to anyone who visits his stall in the girls bathroom, he is also one of the seven wonders who has to maintain order between humans and apparitions. To help him he got his boycrazy assistant Yashiro Nene and the half-arsed exorcist Minamoto Kou.

An interesting premise for sure that while not the most unique in all aspects felt relatively fresh. But my positive first impression didn’t last that long as it started doing one of the most sinful things I know, it messed up the tone. In one read more

It was poetry in motion, but then they blinded each other with science!

Can everything be explained through science? Even love?
Two scientists who are in love with one another, but lacks proof of it decides to tackle this question head on. Through trial and error we see them work towards this goal of finally being able to answer this question and be able to become a couple. But I think that this premise worked to it's disadvantage and ended up making it pretty boring.

Love is something you feel and not something that has to be scientifically explained for you to realize. Meaning that read more

Netflix heard the silent cries of no less than 0 people to make a new CGI anime, and it turned out pretty good.

Set in an post-apocalyptic future where most of the human population has turned into giant man-eating insects. We get to follow some of those yet to be transformed people as they try to survive in a world now against them. One of these people is Kidou who works as an exterminator, slaying the insects for payment, and keeps them from spreading. One day he saves a girl who together with her father was attacked by a swarm. His last wish was that read more

A beautiful visual feast for the eyes which seems to have fallen under most peoples radar!

A young man named Sheng faces his inner demons in the haunting but beautiful valley of white birds. While meeting an old man, a spirit of his former self and a big white bird he seeks to defeat.

It's a movie with a lot of symbolism and since there's no dialogue it's up to the viewer to come to their own conclusion to what the story is trying to say. Some may not like that but it opens up possibilities for discussion and I think there is some fun in read more

The main character has a big iron for a head!
That's the most intriguing part of this otherwise exposition heavy 1st season with little progression.

Inui Juuzou is an Over-Extended (heavily robotically modified body) and was a so called gun slave unit during a war, who now make ends meet by solving extended related issues as a resolver. With it's noir style and interesting eye catching main character it looked like something that could be really good, and yes it could be something good but it's to early to tell.

The reason being that this season is all just a setup for the second season/cour. Over the read more

Levius (Anime) add (All reviews)
The new Netflix anime that nobody asked for but got anyways. Made by Polygon Pictures who are known for bringing us fully cgi anime that nobody wants but get anyways.
The new boxing anime called Levius.

We follow a young man named Levius who have made a reputation for himself as a metal boxer. Where you fight with prosthetic body parts with the help of a special kind of steam called Hyper Steam which you can control on your own.

I found the concept as well as the steampunk setting to be very interesting, but sadly they don't explore it that much or the world in general. Which read more

A movie by Production I.G that very few people have heard of.
Mitsuami no Kamisama aka Pigtail.

We follow a young girl with pigtails (hence the name) who lives by herself on a farm in a dystopian future where the world has been heavily polluted. The only contact she get is from people wearing hazmat suits who giver her an inspection every week. As the story progresses we get to know more about this world and what is so important with this girl. All trough visuals and conversations between the girls furniture and tools (Yes you read that correctly).
The girl herself and every other human being have read more

If you want to know how to make the most unoriginal movie possible then look no further, this is it!

After her family is attacked by an "Evil Corporation" Rikka Isurugi decides to track them down in order to get revenge and stop them from doing evil things. To her help she got three robot pets like with most characters, only exists to be convenient later on.

Like I said this movie is very unoriginal. If you have seen a lot of anime or movies in general, then nothing in this movie will surprise you at all. Which made this movie (at least to me) much less read more

If you haven't started reading the manga of Totsukuni no Shoujo (The Girl From the Other Side) but is thinking about it,
then this OVA might be helpful to you like it was for me.

The story is visually told and follows a young girl named Shiva, and a demon-like being called Sensei that takes care of her. But he can't touch her because that would give her an incurable curse.

Since this OVA is only 10 minutes long there isn't much of an overarching story and it's just a day in the their life. But what makes it interesting is the relationship between Shiva and Sensei. Both read more

Star Strings yori follows a young girl named Kororu who lives alone on a planet without people and she only remember her name and how to survive on her own. Since she lives in complete solitude, she gets happy and filled with hope when she one day finds a moving string with seemingly someone on the other side.
Hoping to find whoever is on the other side she sets out on a journey to climb up the string.

It's a very short story that sadly leaves a lot of questions I had unanswered. For example why she is the only human left on the planet, why read more
