Have you ever seen something so terrible that it made you feel awe? Like watching two cars collide, but you see it as a sculpture of twisted steel being built right before your eyes. That's how it feels to watch Moekan. I would warn you that this review will contain spoilers, but it's actually impossible to spoil Moekan, for reasons I'll explain later.

Make no mistake, Moekan IS an awful show. The story is insipid, the characters are bland cutouts, the action is stupid, the romance is forced, the pacing is dreadful, even the OP and ED are sung off-key – there's not a single good read more

Yowamushi Pedal is not a good show. It's a standard, predictable shounen sports series that does nothing memorable or exciting. Every conflict in the story is caused by not having enough pride in your team, and every conflict is resolved by having more pride in your team. The characters all fit neatly into their pre-determined stereotypes, and nothing really changes between the start of the show and the last end card. But this show does excel in one area, and that is copious amounts of balls-to-the-wall MANSERVICE.

Now, I don't claim to be an expert on the admiration of the male physique. I like my ladies read more

Do you like watching things happen? Think carefully about this question. Watching anime is essentially seeing a sequence of events set to music and sound. Under this definition, there could conceivably be an anime about anything, even grass growing. The reason this hasn't happened yet is because no one would care. Sure, things are happening, but why does that matter to you? You could go outside right now and see grass grow, or you could watch something you care more about, so watching Grass-chan Adventures is understandably low on your priority list. But why is that? Why do you care about some things more than read more

Complete Review Mark II: The Revenge: Special Edition Part 2 Final Version

There's a certain subset of anime fans who savor bad experiences. Those who pick up what sensible watchers drop just to see how bad things can get. Those who seek out “classics” like Skelter Heaven and M.D. Geist to deepen their knowledge of bad shows. Those who came back to Galilei Donna week after week to see if it could sink any lower. For these people, Samurai Flamenco is a godsend. Samumenco isn't just bad, it's transcendentally bad. It's beyond mere words like “horrible” and “awful.” It's a special, painful kind of bad, like read more

Rideback has perhaps the greatest drop in overall quality that I've ever seen. It starts out on the highest highs with a masterfully crafted first episode, then it slides down on the next two, still a great show with a great premise but not quite living up to the opening. Then the fourth episode drops, and the whole series falls off a cliff. From then on we get to watch our promising mech-racing show drown under all the needless drama and shoehorned war stories that nobody wanted to see. Rideback draws you in with the promise of an engaging, introspective sports series full of potentially read more

Kyou no Asuka Show is, in its entirety, a metaphor for a woman: You're drawn in by a pretty face and a panty shot, but you stay for the downtempo meditations on life and society. Or maybe you just stay for more panties. Either way, you're sure to be entertained, even if you stop listening after a while.

Kyou no Asuka Show is about a girl named Asuka Kyou No... Show. Wait. Kyou no Asuka Girl is about a show named, wait, hold on. Kyoukai Senjou No H- no, no, one more time. Today's Asuka Show stars Asuka, a stunningly beautiful girl with absolutely no common read more

Do you like breasts? Of course you do, you wouldn't be watching anime if you didn't. Do you like wrestling? Doesn't matter, have some more breasts.

Sekai De Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai (Sekatsuyo for short) is a story about breasts. Sentient breasts with butts attached for panty shots. Two pairs of terrific titties stop by to watch other bodacious boobies bounce around in a wrestling ring. One pair of breasts gets rankled and gives a dropkick to another pair, setting off a string of wacky adventures in the world of foxy wrestling.

Sakura, the main character, has her personality summed up entirely in the show's title (spoiler: she read more

Cosprayers is legendary among anime fans for setting a standard by which other anime are judged. By which I mean it's garbage. When describing terrible shows, the phrase “at least it's not as bad as Cosprayers” will often come up. Future generations will study it as a an example of just how wrong things can go at every step, from planning to production. It cannot be said enough that Cosprayers is bad. However, the Cosprayers specials manage to do something incredible – they manage to make the formula work. The basic premise of a magical girl trying to fight monsters and failing in hilarious ways read more
