Prior knowledge: AnoNatsu Original Series

Depending on what you thought of the parent series you might have been all for this special episode or ignoring it outright. The original series was a good example of teenage love triangles. It wasn’t afraid to be melodramatic in its conflict and resolutions. That said, seeing such overblown interactions can be painful and rather annoying to watch for some viewers. And make no mistake, there’s a lot of conflicts like this. Which is why AnoNatsu may not be for everyone. Though these were the elements that pulled me towards liking this show in the first place. Those that watched and read more

This season had a lot of highly anticipated anime. Mahouka, SAO, and Aldnoah.Zero just to name a few. And in this list of anticipated shows is Glasslip. From the studio that created the original anime show Nagi no Asukara, famous for its pentagonic love-triangle and twist couple endings. An original concept is always something viewers welcome. No doubt many were expecting something of similar quality with this show and from the synopsis it was thought that was what people were going to get. Another original anime show based around some complicated love-pentagon (hexagon?) that expertly resolves itself.

You get none of that.

Story - 3/10

With so many popular action anime taking the spotlight this Summer season, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun stands out being one of the more lighthearted shows. Relying mainly on its comedic factor to grab the viewers.

Does a comedy show still have a place in the viewers interests? Let's find out.

Story - 7/10

Let's be very clear. GSN is not a shoujo romance. If you came here looking for another Ao Haru Ride or Sukitte Ii na yo then read more

Among the sea of LN and Manga adaptations, Aldnoah.Zero stands out trying to show that original ideas can make a difference. It's renowned staff and high production value gives this show, at least in appearance, a run for its money. Hoping to make its mark in the community like other original anime screenplays before it. Most famously Neon Genesis Evangelion in the 90s, Code Geass and Eden of the East in the 00's, and most recently Kill la Kill last year. Needless to say, many viewers were anticipating this show with high expectations given its staff and premise, me included. Expecting this show read more

Manga: None

Tokyo Ghoul is one of the more hyped up anime this season for a number of reasons. Mainly because it was, as I have heard, a very popular manga. The premise itself is easy to follow. The world is inhabited by two types of people: regular people and ghouls who eat people as a source of food. The main character, Kaneki Ken, after almost being killed by a ghoul is turned into a half ghoul-half human hybrid. By this time, I, who has not read the manga, assumed the show would explore the morality of and question the prejudice between the two groups read more
