The first time I saw Summer Wars was at Anime News Network. I read their recent review on it and man, they were absolutely blown away. This, as well as the interesting plot and title, made me want to watch it right away.

The plot of Summer Wars definitely intrigued me. It was just too bizarre and out of the ordinary and I just couldn't help myself to not watch it. It pretty much had everything - slice of life, action, romance, annoying family members and even had something along the lines of a social networking site as one of its central concepts! It definitely tried read more

I have already noticed the show Jigoku Shoujo long before I decided to watch it. I knew about Enma Ai already, but only the fact that she was the main character. Because the ongoing animes were so disappointing, I decided to take a break from it and watch an entirely different show. After seeing that there was full episodes of Jigoku Shoujo on Youtube, I decided to watch that and give it a go.

Jigoku Shoujo is about different people who wants to take revenge on someone they hate; whether it be a bully, an annoying coworker or even a murderer. They can take revenge and read more

Story

The basic premise of Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou is Modern Magic, which uses codes to produce spells instead of using the traditional incantations and scrolls, etc. This is somewhat a fresh spin to other magical girl shows, and is refreshing. Of course, there are also magicians in the show that use the olden version of magic, which requires them to recite an incantation. The story itself was very plain, with just the basic evil guy trying to conquer the world. Although it was somewhat a new spin on this genre, the hopeless story plot just brought the mark down terribly.

Rating: 6/10

Storywise, EOTE does everything well. Right from the start, we were already sucked in into the world of EOTE by such a wonderful story plot. This was truly a unique plot and it stood out from the other spring animes. They created something that would definitely make us more interacted with the story – like for example, what would you do if you had a magic cell phone and you could do whatever you wanted? The creators explored and definitely created a great anime that truly took a somewhat romantic anime and put an extra twist in it.

Story:
Storywise, Ga-Rei Zero (Abbreviated to GRZ from now on) does it very well. This was one of the highlights of the show, and definitely was a solid good plot backing it up. It engages the viewer not to drop the show and it was sure to please even the viewers who are not a fan of the genre. I know this since I am definitely not a huge fan of action shows, and I absolutely loved GRZ. The twists and turns of the plot was exceptional, and was entertaining but definitely kept you at the edge of your seat until the very end of the read more

K-On! (Anime) add (All reviews)
Story:
Well as stated before, the story is basic and simple. When the show was still to air, all that they gave us was just 1 or 2 short sentences on the story and premise of what K-On was going to be. I thought that it was clever since it engages viewers to find out more about it. But actually, there was nothing more to it than that! The story wasn’t really a strong point of K-On, since this was generally just a heartwarming, cute and entertaining show. The basic premise was good, but it wasn’t something new and original.

Rating: 7/10

Sola (Anime) add (All reviews)
Story
In terms of story, Sola is quite unique. What seems to be at first a general, boy meets girl, boy falls in love type of story, it is actually a bit more complex than that. It does follow the usual routine though, but along the way, it is not the usual events that lead to the usual ending. So anyway, the story to me is very nice. It gives a refreshing new outlook on the romance genre. Sola also incorporates some supernatural themes into it, which makes it a little extra special. The story can get a little boring sometimes, since at the beginning, it read more

If you know me very well, you will know that I am a very picky about character drawings and backgrounds. And Chaos;Head is no exception, no matter how much I was waiting for it to be released and aired in Japan. However, I must say that the story is intriguing enough for me to keep watching and watching, despite the horrible art.


Story
I must say, the story of Chaos;Head is very intriguing and mysterious. It drives off from the usual anime, since it is a psychological/horror series. It certainly stays true to its genre since it deals with concepts like delusions and murder chains. Anyhow, Chaos read more

Clannad (Anime) add (All reviews)
First of all, I’ve got to say, I really love this anime. This is one of those animes that you just have to watch, regardless of your age. The only problem is that you might run out of tissues in your house when you finish watching this great show.


Story:
Like all other Key titles, Clannad has a pretty sad story. It’s about a girl called Nagisa trying to rebuild the drama club even though it was disbanded due to insufficient members. The guy decides to help Nagisa to recruit members and to build up confidence. Little does he know that Nagisa has an (incurable?) illness, which read more

Preliminary
Bakemonogatari is based on a series of light novels by Nisio Isin, and is later produced by Shaft. It features different short stories all related to the main character, Araragi Koyomi. Bakemonogatari is now known for its superb art and animation, and the unique way the story was presented to us. Adding to that, Bakemonogatari surprised many due to its weekly ranking sales and how well it sold across Japan. This was clearly evident in the field of BD sales, where it made history, selling 29,000 units of Bakemonogatari Vol.1, beating out the previous record holder of Macross Frontier, which sold at 22,000 units. It read more
