There are some days when you just don't feel like doing anything. You want to lie down, roll in your bed, have a cup of coffee near you and binge something that doesn't make you work up that much. Yuru Camp is just that kind of anime.

There's not much stories, no sudden plots and jumps, no romance(thankfully) and no excessive emotional stuff. It's just like the river which flows on and on, peacefully, without disturbing anybody. Yuru Camp is just like that. Sit back and get prepared for a comfy ride.

The art is soothing. Not great, not bad, just plain, simple soothing. The one that read more

You see all those reviews with high scores and high ratings, and then wonder why I gave Natsu no Zenjitsu a 2? Because I loved it, binged the whole thing in an hour only to read the last chapter and flipping off my laptop in anger. Yes, the ending totally kills it.

I don't know if you guys like tragic stuff and what not, but I hate them. Our brilliant stupid MC Tetsuo is a genius artist. He is shy of girls, until he meets Akira. Akira is the beautiful, slightly older and caring woman, and they fall in love. But do they really?

Akira loves her, read more

ReLIFE (Manga) add (All reviews)
Search up MAL, and you'll find an abundance of romance manga, but I guarantee you, you won't find anything like ReLIFE. It's just the best. The way it handles the aspect of growing up, school life and most importantly depression, ReLIFE is nothing short of a masterpiece. The way ReLIFE tackled real life problems, I have to say, I am trying to change my life after reading this, such a great impact it had on me.

[WARNING: MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD]

Story: ReLIFE deals with the protagonist Kaizaki, a depressed working man. One day he meets a guy called Yoake, who hands him a strange looking pill that read more

Kuroori-hime to Kawaki no Oru is a one shot by Kusanagi Mizuho sensei. She is the mangaka of Akatsuki no Yona and a couple of other manga.

Like most of her manga, Kuroori-hime is a historical piece. Set in old times of kings, this one-shot is a lot similar to Akatsuki no Yona.

The main characters, Setia and Azurite, looks a lot like Yona and Hak. Setia is beautiful and strong, yet emotional and caring. Azurite, while appearing to be merciless, actually has a kind side to him. He captures her, tries to seduce her but fails, only to be later saved and loved by her.

I picked up Just Because! after seeing the preview and what followed was a journey of mixed emotions. Did I like it? Not quite, but I didn't hate it too. I continued watching it because I didn't like to drop it, that's all.

Coming to the story, it's your generic school romance. There's a transfer student, there's the beautiful school council president, a nosy kouhai and some good friends. What unfolds is a story so expected that anyone could have predicted the outcome. Transfer student Eita loves the president Mio, and the other characters dangle around them. There's the red string of fate theme, which I read more

With all the anime this seasonal sparking debates and deep thoughts, I wanted something to watch that would make me feel relaxed. Browsing through the shows I landed upon this one, and what I saw for 40 minutes, did not disappoint me.

While others will disagree with me, I genuinely feel that Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte kara is one gem of an anime. A sweet take on the everyday life of a couple will make any depressed or grumpy guy happy.

Chistao is a working woman in a company. Pretty, reserved and excellent in her work. Sora, her husband, works in a bar. The anime deals read more

It looks like there's some kind of jinx on the second seasons of popular anime. First it was New Game!! and now, Himouto! Umaru-chan.

The story continues with the daily lives of our favorite Himouto, Umaru and her friends. It's not an continuation from the first season, but more like a new series on it's own. The characters are all still in their high school and enjoying their lives, and the show tries to capture a glimpse of it.

While the first season was a hilarious comedy, the second season tries to make it a bit more serious and fails. I am not saying that it's read more

Another good sports manga which includes romance. Strange mix, huh? After reading Cross Game, I was looking for another sports romance when I landed on this, and boy, it sure is good.

The story is a bit generic. Our hero, Chiaki is a good baseball player in high school. He's a bit energetic and also an airhead sometimes. Touko, is the school teacher, young and pretty. He sees him, she sees her, and it's love at first sight. Great, right?

The art is superb. Absolutely terrific. The baseball scenes are almost realistic. Touko sensei looks great and she's definitely ending up in my best girl list. The read more

Net-juu Susume was one of the greatest anime this season, and here it is, the much awaited special of it. Honestly speaking it wasn't so good as I expected it to be, but it wasn't bad either. I'll refrain from spoilers in this review.

The story is the weakest point of the special. The episode is divided into two parts. The first part is wonderfully cute, and I am a sucker for cute romances, and I straight away rated it 10. There are a few cliche shojo scenes and I went kyaaah in he first half. But then there's the second part too, which is a read more

Enjoyed New Game! ? Thought that the sequel would be that good? I thought like that too and started watching New Game!! and what followed was an extreme test of patience of restraining myself for not dropping it. It's that bad.

While New Game! was one of the perfect SoL anime I've ever seen, it's sequel single handedly destroys all the praise it received. There's no perfect plot, the characters have no development whatsoever and every episode looks like a subtly designed yuri bait. A bunch of new characters are added who serve no use to the original cast and are only thrown in for the read more
