I intend on this being a completely spoiler free review. Girly Air Force is about the definition of mediocre. If it was to be personified, it would be the guy in the room no one remembers because he is so incredibly average.

The art is nicely done, and CG isn't obtrusively done like so many other action anime. That alone gains it points in my book.

The audio was nicely done, but not so much the music. The music only seemed to really hit a high note (forgive the pun) one time for me... and it was in episode 12. read more

To start off, I didn't expect much from this anime. A show about a college scuba club, doesn't sound terribly appealing. I decided to give it a shot. And this was a great move, because it led to an anime that was simply hilarious in its execution.

I will say, there wasn't much worthwhile out of the story, but that isn't always a bad thing. With no need to remember every character (I still can't distinguish between the regularly shown male club members) means you can really jump into the series at just about any point and still enjoy it.

It pains me to rate this show so poorly. I loved the first two seasons and fumoffu was hilarious. Maybe this is why I can't help but grade this production poorly? All I know is I may not ever finish watching this because of the glaring issues.

From what I have seen the character development... is non-existent. It relies entirely on previously created character stories to fill out the characters (and it changes key characteristics of existing individuals from the previous seasons without notice). Kaname has magically changed from the confident and kinda kick ass character, to the crying screaming damsel read more

I will attempt to keep this review as short and to the point as MyAnimeList allows.

Season 2 (especially the first half of the season) was considerably less enjoyable than the original season of Overlord. One of the major issues with this season was terrible sense of pacing. Each half of the season feels like it should have been expanded into their own seasons (though, given how unenjoyable the first half was... maybe it could have just been excluded). The creators crammed too much into this season and did not properly develop ANY of it. This left all the characters read more

I'll attempt to make this spoiler-free.

This is not a ground-breaking anime. Despite some of the other reviews I've seen here. It actually IS kind of a generic harem anime. This isn't saying that's a bad thing (a few of my favorite anime can fall into the "generic harem" trope).

For me the truly important part is the enjoyment factor. Which there was plenty of... but then there was also the head scratching "WTF is happening here" factor that damaged my enjoyment of the show. This is exemplified by the apparent confusion over what time period this show took place read more

Simply put, this anime doesn't deserve the condemnation that the vocal minority are currently giving it. Just look at the MAL rating compared to the top like 6 most "helpful" reviews. For this rating with so many 1s... means there are FAR more (on a scale of far more than 2:1... since most people don't give only 1s and 10s) people who found it to be enjoyable in some way.

There is nothing spectacular or innovative about the story/art/etc... However, in order to be enjoyable doesn't require any of that. This is an ecchi harem(ish) anime, you should never expect it to read more

Preliminary
This anime (manga and 90's version are NOT included in this review... because this ISN'T the page for either of them) does one thing and one thing only. Hack and slash gore-fest. That's not saying it's a bad show, per se. It is, however, repetitive and struggles to hold your attention (unless you're one of those who are just out for a gore-fest). Perhaps the second half of the season got deeper and more complex (I doubt it, but wouldn't know since it lost my interest before I made it past 6), but repetitive endless waves of monsters attacking and killing read more

This review will not be terribly long or complex (just long enough that MAL allows it to be posted). And will be almost totally SPOILER-FREE.

I can't in good conscience give this a 1, as that implies there was nothing of value gained from it at all. There's also no way to justify a 10.

This is very much akin to delivery boy-man from Futurama. They gave the protagonist too many powers. There was never even a remote chance he could lose/not do something.

The whole point of this anime was supposed to be that he had his smartphone (that still somehow read more

Preliminary
(Spoiler-ish review... no important plot points revealed) I can't say this is a great anime. Enjoyable... to a degree. But not great. If you're set on blood/gore/explosions to determine your anime choice. This is DEFINITELY the right show for you. If you get annoyed at plot holes/continuity errors/inconsistency... not the anime for you.

There was far too much inconsistency in the titans. I don't know if I should fault this to the art department or the story. One scene you'll see a titan who is clearly 200 or more feet tall (as it is towering over the 50 meter wall... read more

Preliminary
This is a fairly straight-forward "cut & paste" shounen anime. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, if you enjoy the standard recipe you'll like the story. If you're looking for originality... this isn't the story for you, however, unoriginal doesn't mean unenjoyable. If this was the only fault I'd easily give this a 7 or 8.

The REAL part that grated on my nerves from the very beginning was Asta... if this show had been 90-95% about Yuno and occasionally bring in Asta for comic relief we could have a decent show here. Instead, now we have a main character who has no read more
