Demon Slayer's Hashira Training Arc has been one of the more controversial arcs in the franchise, not because of sensitive content or uncharacteristics elements. No, it's in fact, a training arc. Literally as it says, this 8-episode arc is about training and something you'd probably would be fed up with after just three episodes, let alone 8. While shounen adaptations often have episodes with training, those only span short episodes or even segments. It's uncommon that an entire season is dedicated on training. Suit up because there will be a whole lot of training in the fourth season.

Hashira Training Arc didn't start out in such ...

Kaijuu 8-gou (Anime) add
Among anime debuting this year targeting the shounen demographic, there's no shadow of a doubt that Kaiju No. 8 has been one of the biggest shows. Based on the manga of the same name, there are numerous reasons as to why this got so hyped. Even Crunchyroll and Twitter decided to livestream this anime live to a global audience at the same time as Japan. It's not an overexaggeration to say Kaiju No. 8 does have some selling points to deserves its hype.

If the name Naoya Matsumoto sounds unfamiliar to you, fear not, as I'm sure many are on the same boat. Their previous ...

They say jellyfish represents a symbol for balance. That very idea could be applied to this anime, starring a group of idols with different motivations. Together as a unit, they are called JELEE, who tries to make a name for themselves. As part of Doka Kobo's 50th anniversary, this anime seeks to prove themselves of capable of delivering on their celebration.

As odd as the title sounds, you won't see jellyfish swimming around. No, this is is a show about music and a group motivated by their own reasons to be part of something special. As an original anime, you don't need knowledge or background about ...

When you hear a title being translated as 'A Condition Called Love', the first image you have is likely the two main characters in some sort of romantic scene. Look no further because Hananoi-kun to Koi no Yamai (A Condition Called Love) is a representation of classic shoujo-drama.

Pairing up two characters with no romantic experience usually spells disaster. It takes risks and commitment to craft a story when the cast has to carry themselves into a memorable story. Of course, we're talking about Hotaru Hinase and Hananoi Saki. The author intentionally gave these characters a lack of experience in romance, for the sake of building ...

If there's one franchise out there that can be described as 'the gift that keeps on giving', Konosuba deserves to be in that conversation. What started as an anime adaptation back in 2016 quickly attracted a global audience. Since its airing in 2017, fans had to endure a 7 year long drought before this season finally aired. It's part of the mainline series that brings back our comedic adventurers, led by the hikkimori Kazuma Satou.

When it comes to the premise and overall style, Konosuba needs no introduction. It sells itself through the sheer amount of comedy, satirical jokes, and overall lighthearted storytelling. There are dramatic ...

I convinced myself that nowadays, any anime can have any type of character seemingly dropping into a protagonist's doorsteps for no apparent reason. Obviously, that's part of how to get a plot running but this can easily be applied to this cute little gem known as Studio Apartment, Good Lighting, Angel. And yes, you can guess it from its headlines, the main protagonist meets an angel in a one room apartment.

Studio Apartment, Good Lighting, Angel introduces itself as a modern day rom-com with supernatural elements. And yes, the poster does indeed gives off a bit of harem vibes. That's not necessarily a dreadful thing as ...

Solo Leveling, the series that took the world by storm back in 2018. No less than a few years later, we are graced a with a 12-episode adaptation that appears to be one of the most hyped series in 2024. It's on a lot of wishlists and for good reasons: stunning visuals, a wish fuflling premise, a diverse cast, and through word of mouth. Korean webnovel anime adaptations have been gaining mainstream popularity in recent years, with Tower of God being another recent example. Solo Leveling tries to set its own example as well.

I want to preface and mention, this review is based from an ...

I've never been to Hokkaido before but upon doing some research, it's said the destinationis been known for "rich agriculture and seafood resources". Watching Hokkaido Gals Are Super Adorable made me wonder just how the gals in this show can make a reputation of their own. It begins on a cold freezing day when 16 year old Tsubasa Shiki meets Minami Fuyuki.

It seems love at first sight. Unlike some traitional rom-coms, there's an overemphasis on their first meeting. The first episode spend a great deal of time on their chemistry. Despite coming from completely different backgrounds, the two are drawn towards each other like two ...

Time loops. Probably one of the oldest trick in the book when it comes to plot devices. It makes its way into this show known as 7th Time Loop: The Villainess Enjoys a Carefree Life Married to Her Worst Enemy. Now imagine yourself in the shoes of a character who has been stuck in a time loop 6 times trying to escape a certain fate. This is the story about Rishe Irmgard Weitzner who tries to find out the truth.

The english version of the title is translated as: 7th Time Loop: The Villainess Enjoys a Carefree Life Married to Her Worst Enemy. It's exactly how ...

Oh, what can the world do without an ecchi like Tale of Wedding Rings these days? I probably had to check several times on various sources when this got announced for an anime adpatation. Why? That's because it felt like we already got the announcement years ago. Yet here we are with a 12-episode adaptation announced just last year and making its debut on the TV screen. And unfortunately, it should've probably remained better off of it.

Now here's a head up. Tales of Wedding Rings is exactly what it looks like from its premise, promos, character designs, and even genre tags. It's not trying to ...
