Mixed Feelings
Back in 2019, there was a show that generated a bit of controversy among fans. Content creators, bloggers, and the media all ran with stories about an anime titled 'The Rising of the Shield Hero'. That's because from the franchise's first animated episode, there was a scene about a woman betraying a male protagonist and turning him into a criminal, at least in the public's eyes at the time. From that point on, this anime was labeled with controversy. Welcome to 2022 where yet again, we see Naofumi on an adventure but this time without being ostrachized by the public and living his title as ...

Spy x Family is an anime of the year candidate. Yes, I say this with confidence for it managed to exemplify entertainment at consistent quality. It's an anime that sells itself as exactly what it is without misleading the audience. And with such a marketing wheel behind the show, it managed to reach a large audience. There's plenty of reasons why I believe Spy x Family indeed deserves its rating and to be quite honest, this is one of the few anime that I can recommend just about anyone this year.

First, I want to congradulate Tatsuya Endou on putting himself on the map with his ...

Although popular franchises spawns sequels, spinoffs, and other adaptations, there's few these days that lives up to the hype. Kaguya-sama: Love is War is one exception that pushes the boundary of romantic comedy. I'm talking about the third season of Kaguya-sama, also known as Kaguya-sama Love is War - Ultra Romantic.

Love is a complex form of emotion, something we may never ever truly understand. It is this very emotion that hits the heart of this show as we explore the foundation of relationships. When I watch Kaguya-sama, I try to think outside the box about what this franchise is trying to accomplish. It's much more ...

Remember when the Overlord franchise took the world by storm with a talking skeleton back in 2015? What if we have another talking skeleton as a protagonist living his life in a fantasy world? No, I'm not talking about Aiz but rather Arc, a skeleton knight covered in armor. Don't let your eyes full you because he's not a disposable game avatars from Dark Souls. Arc is a skeleton knight with an ambition but also a character who takes opportunities for his deeds. Still, what makes you want to get invested into Arc's character and the show itself?

Watching Skeleton Knight in Another World is like ...

The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody reminds me the time when I got my test score back and realized that I needed to study more. It follows a similar aftermath reaction related to the 5 stages of grief. Ok, maybe I'm exaggering a bit but I can't deny the fact that this show made me at least experience a feeling of denial, depression, and acceptance.

Based off of the light novel, you can tell right away what the anime is about beyond just the synopsis. It's about a character reborn in a fantasy world but is overpowered compared to others around ...

For those who has a lot of patience and tolerate the type of show with fantasy drama about humans, beasts, and demons, then maybe you've stumbled upon the right place. If not, let's just say that I'm Quitting Heroing is the type of anime that reuses many of the same elements in today's anime market, the very definition of trying the same thing over and expecting different results.

Trust me, with the amount of isekai these days, seeing a protagonist being banished from a party, kingdom, or general population is hardly a rare sight. That's what happened to Leo, the hero who gets banished from their ...

As you imagine, a title like this will spark and make you scratch your head about what to expect. It's essentially about a guy who reincarnates into a world where women reigns supreme. Being a mob, or otherwise a background character, main protagonist Leon plays his life like a game as he's trapped in this dating sim world.

At first, it wasn't easy to figure out exactly what this anime is trying to be. An isekai otome harem? A fantasy school drama? Or one of those wild unpredictable stories carved from the author's wild imaginations? One thing is for sure is the anime follows a recurring ...

What happens when you put together two awkward characters together in the same classroom? Have them spend time together and who knows, maybe they can discover more about themselves. Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is very clear about showcasing two main characters who are socially awkward with wild imaginations that stretches beyond common logic.

There's actually plenty of logic in Aharen-san wa Hakarenai but it's how you approach the anime that defines what you get out of it. For instance, we are immediately introduced to Raidou and his social akawardness around others. But looking beyond his stoic face and personality, you can actually see that he is a ...

Our world is a complex place, full of diverse culture, and colorful species. Obviously, the most complex species is the human race and we enjoy the gifts that God gave to us. Through evolution, intelligence, and technology, we have also evolved and transformed our world into what we see today. And that brings us to modern day where the setting of a particular show takes place. Paripi Koumei is an anime taking place in modern Tokyo that is full of pop culture and entertainment.

Despite being based on the manga, I've never heard of this series before until the anime announcement. It isn't one of those ...

We all make mistakes. Humans makes mistakes because common sense sometimes outwits our own intellect. Attack on Titan defies the logic of common sense with the presence of titans. By trascending beyond logic, we have been graced with one of the most popular anime franchises in recent memory. Oh yes, say hello to Attack on Titan the Final Season Part 2. This season needed to be split multiple parts because logic dedicates that it does not have enough episodes to conclude the story.

However, make no mistake. The producers wanted to adapt the manga to its completion. This show has been practically sitting on a ...
