TL;DR: A non-solid adaption on a potential story


There are three character arcs in total. Natsumi, Origami and Shido. The good news is there's not much fanservice in major character arc, but sadly the story is not delivered properly. The art and the animation is a joke, we will discuss these one by one.


Natsumi arc


I’ll cut this straight. The story focus too much on the guessing game, rather than the character itself. I have quite a bit of enjoyment with Natsumi. However, there are not much description on reasons behind this. The introduction is also pretty brief and rushed. It's quite briefly mentioned and requires more read more

I watched this movie because I wanted to see further development on this series and hoping it can do better on the story and character aspect.However,none of these ever happened,but instead it continues the flaws of the original series,which makes this movie awful to watch.

+crazy tank moments
+good animation
+good sound effects

-Not much emotional moments as the previous anime series
-the tanks are in chaos and hard to follow
-too many characters,hard to grow on them
-the result can be easily predicted
-insufficient bgm and soundtracks

This movie is split into three parts,two parts are tank battles,which occupied most of the movie duration,while only a small part that it read more

TL;DR: Risking itself in doing multiple tasks, but it turns out becoming an anime that you can't miss out!!!

I remembered the days I was watching shounen anime and most of them are often really shallow and repetitive, I know someone may disagree with my point of view, but most shounen anime doesn't really impress me much, as main characters are being ignored and they just focus on one or two characters, the storytelling is even most likely omitted, they just focus on one theme then all episodes are all similar, which is really boring to me. I really want to try to find a good read more

TL;DR: Built on an unrealistic setting, but turns out pretty well

People usually have different perspectives on a subject whether this is right or wrong, good or bad? In Happy Sugar Life, this subject of matter is greatly reflected, whether in the anime community or inside the story.Generally speaking, people think this anime is trying to hard to be edgy.However,this anime isn't a straight edgy anime, which gives you a lot of death or violent scenes. This anime is kinda dark in another way around on the characters conflicts and the atmosphere, which is better than most dark anime in my opinion.

+Great character interactions
+Descriptive character read more

Island (Anime) add (All reviews)
TL;DR: An anime that barely connects its mysteries to develop a romance

While Island is trying to be one of the remarkable romance, mystery anime, the outcomes are pretty unsatisfactory, as it barely connects the mysteries around and develops a romance story. I would say Island is an average show, but can't be considered as a masterpiece, as it can have a better story presentation, rather than things I just saw in the anime.

+Kinda dense mystery elements
+It can be considered as a complete story at the end
+Colourful animation
+The bond between main protagonists is presented
+Usage of soundtrack and music are pretty cool

-Bland characters, especially read more

With so many people thinking that Madoka Magica brings a great impact to the dark Mahou shoujo anime,Madoka Magica doesn't really feel that great to me.It tries too hard to explain its settings and it doesn't really feel emotional.At the end,I only think that Madoka Magica is an endless "game" with characters involved,but nothing more.It feels lame and hard to let me feel emotional.

+the atmosphere fits the story
+kinda interesting story premise
+pays effort on explaining settings
+Characters do have their backstories

-Tries too hard in explaining settings
-predictable
-Characters feel lame
-Hardly feel emotional to me
-Doesn't really have good visuals
-ed is too rocky

*spoiler alert*

Adapted from a manga series,Comic Girls surely tries to bring the pain and struggle of the manga Industry into an anime,together with its own style.Although keeping its own style is important,they should also consider whether it'd be a great idea from a general anime perspective.By now,it somehow shows its uniqueness,but doesn't feature Comic Girls really well.

+good opening and ending song
+diversified characters' personalities
+Hilarious and crazy characters' actions
+nice character reactions
+Ending summed up the story

-it feels episodic
-Bad story premise
-story feels shattered because characters work on their own
-repetitive or overused ideas
-undeveloped characters
-poor transitions

At my first glance,I was really excited about Comic Girls,I saw cute girls,beautiful visuals read more

TL;DR:A combination of mysteries and romance,a nice mixture indeed

People are refused to watch this show by judging the show from the beginning,saying that it's a rip-off Tokyo Ghoul,Twilight and containing a heavy amount of fan-service,but however I come to realise that this show is not that shallow,it eventually turns out pretty well and worth to expect.

+Overall it feels realistic
+some of the actions are pretty good
+dark atmosphere is presented well
+the conflicts are described pretty well
+strong voice actors base
+It's later revealed that there're some mysteries behind the incident

-Rich story content,but the story presentation can be improved
-characters can be described more,like the round-eye girl,named Tsukasa
-inadequate soundtracks

In general,Devils read more

TL;DR:A burning candle that shines brightly at first,but blow itself up shortly later on

In general,Kono suba is like a burning candle that shines brightly,it has an unique setting,great characters and quite eye-catching visuals,which could grab your first insight easily.At the beginning of this anime,it's a very refreshing experience,a main protagonist,called Kazume died in an unusual,hilarious way,which he brought a stupid goddess named Aqua,who always think herself is powerful,to another fantasy world afterwards.

In the later story,Kazume and aqua met another two other girls,who are named Megumin and Darkness.Megumin is a cute little girl,who could only use explosive magic once per daily only,as this requires a lot read more

K-On!! (Anime) add (All reviews)
This review will review both s1 and s2 of k-on,but mainly s2,minor spoiler of the beginning episodes in S2 ahead!

I remembered that when I was young, I saw K-on was on the TV, the public seemed to be very interested in it. At that moment, I thought it was just another "cute girls doing cute things" shows. It didn't draw any of my attention at all.

After a few years, I was pulled by someone's recommendation.Saying that it's much better than Love Live. I decided to give it a try.

Clearly,I realised that my previous statement was wrong.

K-on is one of those shows that's read more
