Hundred (Anime) add
3 people found this review helpful
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

Azumanga Daioh (Anime) add
5 people found this review helpful
Azumanga Daioh is a strange anime. At first I didn't like anything about it and watched it only because it has surprisingly high score, but after some episodes... I started to hate it even more! Yet I still couldn't drop it because I already got too used to characters and enjoyed seeing even the ones that were annoying and deserved a solid punch.

While Azumanga Daioh doesn't have any real plot I would still say that the story is good. It has clear beginning and the ending, introduces characters properly and has good pacing. You can't really want more from Slice of Life anime.

Nana Mix! (Manga) add
2 people found this review helpful
Nana Mix! is one of those titles that fully live up to ones expectations: I expected something mediocre and I got exactly that.

Reading synopsis is enough for reader to know what to expect from this story. It's simple, predictable, rushed and forgettable. Despite having "20 to 1" female to male ratio and "harem" genre it didn't feel like harem at all. Comedy was really weak. The scenes that (I think) were supposed to be serious turned out cheap and cheesy. There was no tension at all, which can also be seen as a positive - there was no real drama in this manga. Most of read more

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. (Manga) add
5 people found this review helpful
Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. is really enjoyable manga. It beautifully connects romance, comedy and character-driven story with bittersweet and meaningful tones.

Despite simple story Inari Konkon doesn't get repetitive or boring. The pacing is great and new characters get introduced slowly enough for readers to have time to get used to them. Author gave a lot of attention to all characters, which allows us to not only see, but also understand their point of view. Thanks to that, this manga really succeeds at avoiding "black and white" split. Everyone has their own feelings and goals. As one might expect, it often leads to more meaningful or read more

Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? (Manga) add
5 people found this review helpful
Rokujouma no Shinryakusha is much more than it seems at first glance. Starting this novel I expected average harem and instead got greatly written story with incredible characters.

Story: 9
Art: 7
Characters: 10
Enjoyment: 10

Story setting feels very ordinary at first: normal boy starts living alone in a cheap apartment. But with every girl introduced it becomes more and more crazy. It actually gets to the point of being pretty ridiculous, but, surprisingly, story never becomes random and there are no plot holes. Author does great work at connecting all loose ends and foreshadowing events that will happen much later. Nothing happens without a reason.

Natsu no Imouto (Manga) add
1 people found this review helpful
Reviewing one-shot feels weird, and the fact that it's hentai makes it even worse, but this manga was memorable enough for me to want to write something about it.

Story: 4
Art: 8
Characters: 5
Enjoyment: 6

The story is incest focused hentai with very simple setting. There's not much attention given to exposition. We get just enough information to know who is where and why.
Story includes some comedic parts. They are generally nice addition. Comedic interactions between Chika and nameless "Onii-chan" give this manga a nice and warm feeling.
Sex scene itself is vanilla - no rape, tentacles or any other weird stuff. The only notable elements are tan read more

Amagami SS (Anime) add
5 people found this review helpful
When recommending Amagami SS I often say that single route from it is better than most full 12/24 eps romance anime. And I'm serious when I say it.

At first glance nothing special. School setting, no superpowers, rivals or saving the world. It's pure high school romance. The only thing that gives this setting some individuality is, as mentioned in synopsis, protagonist's backstory of being stood up on Christmas date two years ago. Sadly, this part isn't fleshed enough and is used mostly for flashbacks that don't have as much impact on the story as they should.

Hametsu no Mars (Anime) add
2 people found this review helpful
There is special score for anime like this on my list: 1.
Word "appalling", which is also MAL's description of 1/10 score, perfectly describes Mars of Destruction anime. Let me explain why...

This anime is perfect example of situation where having bad story is much worse than not having story at all.
So, some aliens are attacking earth for some reason, some girls fight them but they are too weak than some guy is forced to be hero, then there is some plot twist. There, I just explained whole plot of this OVA and I dare say I did it better than anime. It's not joke, they seriously read more

Big Order (TV) (Anime) add
8 people found this review helpful
There is a lot bad things being said about Big Order anime, and while many of them are true, I believe it's hated more than it deserves. Why? I'll try to explain it in this review!

Weakest and, in a way, strongest point of Big Order. First of all, take a look at the genre: action shounen. It's not another Mirai Nikki, and while synopsis and even first episode kinda sell it as something more psychological, it is not. It's action anime and if you expect anything more, you will be seriously disappointed.
Saying it's rushed would be a huge understatement. Things happen too fast with too read more

This review is based solely on first season of anime, with no knowledge about source material.

At first glance, Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!, or KonoSuba for short, looks like most generic comedy harems with "average at everything" protagonist... but it's much more than that. In this review I'll focus mostly on explaining why.

Random-nobody boy ends up in different world for whatever reason. Nothing special, right? But what if the reason he got transported to this other world was already funnier than most comedy anime out there?
Let's be honest. KonoSuba is comedy, not epic story about heroes and their struggles. Its world is very basic read more
