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.

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. Joeks 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.

After reading synopsis you can probably tell that Aizawa-san Zoushoku is not typical harem. Personally I wouldn't call it harem at all, as most of the cast are Aizawas that don't act like usual harem members.

Story of this manga is very nice. It introduces the multiplying mechanic in the very beginning and is focused on it until the end. Other than that it's mostly normal high school romance.
Aizawa-san Zoushoku is very lighthearted and has many cute moments. Comedy will make you smile but isn't that great in my opinion. Romance progresses nicely and is very satisfying.

One thing that surprised me are characters. Aizawa herself is read more

First of all ignore "Genres: Comedy, Ecchi, Slice of Life" part. This and the fact that those are shorts really give wrong impression about what this picture drama is.

So, what it is then? Just as first season's specials, those are short stories focused around R2 story, with some telling about things from past and last episode happening after R2 epilogue. The reason why I'm saying to ignore genres is how meaningful this special is. While there is some fanservice, all episode add to the main story and are on the serious side. Some also hit in the feels.

Just as the title says, it's a picture read more

There are many anime about girls doing some specific activity, with that activity being just excuse to show cute and heartwarming moments. While Long Riders! doesn't lack those aspects, in my opinion it's first and foremost sports anime and should be treated as one - more about it later.

Story is as simple as it gets. It follows Ami as she starts her adventure with cycling and slowly gains experience and becomes better. There are many cute and relaxing moments, there is comedy too, but main focus is cycling itself. It's exactly why I see it as a sports anime: Long Riders! puts heavy focus on read more

Hundred (Anime) add (All reviews)
It'd be quite accurate and detailed review if I just wrote "it's magic battle school harem". But you surely know that much from synopsis. If you are reading this review that means you want to know how is Hundred any different from other shows of this type and if it's worth watching. I'll try to answer those questions.

Hundred's story is as basic and predictable as it gets. Normally it'd mean it's "average". Not in this case. You know why I watch ecchi harems? For girls and fanservice. Instead I got some space bugs attacking earth without any reason and school kids fighting them with powers read more
