Very often anime adaptations are made just to promote source material. In Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart's case it's extremely obvious, to the point where it feels like I'm watching 12 episodes PV.
But to be honest... it was fun.

There is no story - everything we get is short introduction in the opening and then it's just random comedic scenes. Really funny ones actually.
Characters seem interesting and have nice designs, but show is far too short to say anything more about them.
Art is very simple with pretty limited animation. Even if it was your first anime you'd see it's a low budget read more

Quoting author, "This manga is about girls flirting with each other".

Majo to Houki to Kurobuchi Megane is not exactly what you'd expect from title or synopsis. Sure, it's very lighthearted, cute SoL, but comedy is based on lolicon, yuri and S&M jokes. There is barely any magic and even less drama. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, mind you. Actually, in my opinion, it worked wonderfully. Mix of those elements gave this manga unique feeling that I'm really going to miss. Jokes were really funny and didn't feel repetitive. Slice of Life part worked well without any forced methods of keeping story interesting. Characters, read more

Colorful Harvest is pretty much a hentai manga that isn't actual hentai.
Story and characters would be really good for a H title, but as it isn't one, I'm going to rate them as non-H manga, which means low. I mean, this is just hentai without directly shown genitals. The only purpose of story is to show sex scenes. Characters also don't have any depth or reason behind their behavior.
On the bright side protagonist pick a girl in the end and we get actual satisfying ending.
Art is good. Sex scenes are drawn really well and characters look great. It lacks in other fields, but for read more

Megane-chan is one of those short manga that you can read during commute or a lunch break. With only 9 chapters, this title doesn't offer any meaningful story and is mostly comedy with some ecchi thrown in. Being seinen manga, ecchi content is natural and doesn't feel forced.
While cast is very small, the only character worth mentioning is the protagonist: Kogane. Pretty much all comedy and characters interactions are made through her. Kogane herself is fun and her perverted jokes are, in my opinion, the strongest point of this manga.
Art, while not ugly, is on the weaker side. Simply put it's... simple. There is not read more

Have you ever seen people complaining about LN adaptations? Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni is everything those complaints are about. Whether it is done on purpose (parody) or not is a different topic.

I'll start by saying that first few episodes are tragic from technical perspective. Everything happens way too fast, we jump from scene to scene without any proper transition - like in some recap. Add to it this anime being what it is (explained later) and it's no surprise if you want to drop it after one or two episodes. Luckily it gets better after first few world and character introduction episodes.
The story read more

Who wouldn't want to read Terminator in rom-com manga version?
The story itself is reference to Terminator movies, but also contains many good references to other more and less known works.

Boku ni Koisuru Mechanical is mostly a cute comedy. It doesn't take itself too seriously. Despite dangerous situation, the mood is always lighthearted. Even the enemies were fun and, despite being dangerous to our protagonists, didn't really feel like bad guys that you want to die. So yeah, cute side of story is top-notch. Comedy is also rather high. Jokes were mostly funny and didn't rely on annoying cliches. On the other hand, I'd rate read more

- "(...) Are you saying you consider masturbating to be primary function of life like breathing? That you masturbate so you can live?"
- "No. I live so I can masturbate. I breathe so I can masturbate."

Kimi wa Midara na Boku no Joou is really short seinen ecchi romance. Because of its length it doesn't offer much story progression or character development. What it does offer, is damn good ecchi and some good comedy. Romance part is rather average from technical perspective but satisfying nonetheless. Despite axed ending and forced drama near the end, the story felt finished and not too rushed.
Cast is small. Other than read more

For someone who watched other Fate series, Fate/loli might seem like a joke. While it's partially true, there is much more to this anime that makes it stand on its own.

Being a mostly comedic spin-off, Kaleid doesn't go to deep with a story. Synopsis is pretty much all that happens in this anime plot-wise.
But being simple doesn't mean being bad. Prisma☆Illya manages to keep perfect balance between comedy and serious moments. You won't experience out of place comedy nor forced drama. Both comedy and drama are of high quality: jokes are funny and feel good. Drama doesn't annoy viewer, is easy to understand and read more

Quite a surprise here. I didn't have high hopes for this anime, but Tsugumomo actually turned out quite well.

Let's start with genres. There are 3 things worth pointing out: it's seinen, there is no harem tag and there is no drama tag.
While Tsugumomo not being harem didn't really save this anime from feeling like one, it gives protagonist a bit more freedom and doesn't need to show us how dense he is every episode.
This anime being seinen is a wonderful thing for any ecchi fan. No, we don't get anything special. It just means that instead of boobfest and nosebleeds without doing anything we read more

Oretama (Manga) add (All reviews)
When looking at title, synopsis or score, Oretama doesn't look really tempting. I'm sure many people are turned off by those without giving this masterpiece a try. Mind you, I didn't use the word "masterpiece" in sarcastic way here.
In this review I'll try to explain Oretama's awesomeness!

Let's start with genres. It says "Comedy, Demons, Ecchi, Romance, Seinen" and Oretama delivers exactly that: it obviously has demons, very cute and satisfying romance, hardcore/borderline hentai ecchi, some of the best comedy I've seen in a manga so far and it all in enjoyable seinen setting that allows to push stuff further than shounens.
Despite absurd premise read more
