Reading "The New Gate" was like watching a super good AMV or compilation video...
You get all the buzz out of all the best bits of all your favorite series all crammed together!

There is HEAVY influence from both SAO & Overlord, as well as I suspect some pretty heavy influence from Log Horizon (A personal long-time favorite) and the blend that "The New Gate" manages to achieve is just wonderful. The MC is extremely likable, the OPness, doesn't feel cheap or pointless, the world is complicated and vast enough that the MC's journey of discovery feels natural and fills the reader with curiosity rather than read more

This is one of those shows where the individual parts when looked at separately do not seem to add together to be anything special. but you put all the little pieces together you somehow end up with something super fun, easy-to-watch, oddly wholesome and very enjoyable. And with that I give you Dr. Stone.

First of all let's clear the air. This is not some mind-bending crazy intelligent show. It is not trying to be. It's premise is essentially "mad-scientist restarts civilization after an odd-looking apocalypse with his oddly strong buddy.'

And honestly it's not that much more complicated than that. The "sciencey" bits need to read more

Yakusoku no Neverland is.... A Triumph.
Let me quickly get a few things out of the way before continuing this review.
1. I have read a decent amount of the manga. More than's been covered by the anime anyway.
2. I tend to write reviews for animes when the "top reviews" does the anime a serious injustice in my not so humble opinion.
3. You should read the manga.

Now onto Yakusoku no Neverland, the anime, because surprise surprise other reviewers, this is an adaptation and nothing more.

So, after all that, should you watch this anime? Yes. Now let me start telling you why.
The anime is extremely well-knit. read more

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari left me both pleasantly surprised, confused and frustrated all in one go upon finishing it, and for quite a few different reasons which I'll attempt to list below and bring together into something of a review for this, if nothing else, intriguing anime.

(Side note, i'm going to heavily AVOID spoilers as i sincerely think this is an anime worth watching so i won't be addressing any particulars about the show but talking generally. Also I ramble/rant like hell so good luck.)

Firstly I want to say that Shield Hero well deserves it's quick rise to fame. It's first few episodes read more

Dororo (Anime) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Time to add my voice to the choir of high-praise.

But lets not get ahead of ourselves, if you're on the fence about Dororo or simply do not know much about it then i should preface by saying that this show is emotional. It is dark and brooding at times, and it does it WELL.

I've seen a decent number of "intense" animes and half the time it's hard for the characters emotions to be taken seriously as the situations causing them feel so contrived and "well it had to happen for the plot", which obviously takes away from some of our capacity to engage read more

Really sad to see this sequel and the first Godzilla film getting such hate. For anyone put off by the large number of negative reviews it's just worth keeping in mind expectations.

Are Godzilla films supposed to be 'good'? No. They all about a ridiculous monster blowing things up and a ridiculous plot that really shouldn't work but it does and it's bloody brilliant. it's why they became so famous. why Godzilla became so iconic.

This newest incarnation of the Godzilla films do not have mind-blowing plots, super detailed characters with fascinating developments who are memorable.

It has brilliant visuals, awesome soundtracks and a REALLY badass read more

So I've kept up with Gancrest Senki on a weekly basis as it's been released. And from what I've seen many of the reviews are of the first 2-5 episodes or so. And simply put, these reviews are not fair.

The story has a VERY odd start. Which seems to be the cause of many of the poor reviews. Yes the pacing is weird, and characters seem a little, everywhere... sometimes. But I've honestly been super interested in how the story has developed. There is a large cast so far and it has been an odd mix of supernatural (vampires, were-wolves and chaos demons), military, and read more

Simply put Kuromukuro simply tells a story, and it's really fun, surprisingly interesting... and for the first time in a long time I spent the last 2 episodes of an anime guessing at it's ending and being COMPLETELY wrong. Which was incredibly refreshing.

The characters are for the most part very enjoyable. They are not particularly three-dimensional or unique, but they are fun, and their actions almost always make sense with the plot, which is so incredibly satisfying (AND RARE!!). They all act in the way that their simply-constructed characters would act in each given scenario!

The plot develops at an extremely nice pace with read more

Houseki no Kuni:
If I had to give a one word review.... "Unique"

And I mean this as one of the strongest compliments i can give any form of creative expression. True creativity is extrodinarily rare boarding on non-existent. Some people I accredit uniqueness to being H.P.Lovecraft, and J.R.R Tolkien.

This show gives a truly special feeling. I can't think of any show that approaches the telling of it's own "story" in quite the same way or has a setting or casts of characters that are quite like this shows.

Story: Story is probably the trickiest one of the aspects of this show to rate as it read more

First and foremost PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT compare this anime to SOA, Log Horizon, or ANY other 'different world' genre. It premise is HUGELY different and I cant help but feel the creators would hate having these parallels drawn as I think they're goal was totally different! This barely (probably technically doesn't) even fit into the fantasy category! This anime's main Genre's should be Slice-of-life, Action, comedy!!!! It's just a Slice-of-Life of a pro gamer!

The reason for this is it follows the main character, the worlds best professional player of a World wide MMORPG called Glory. who, in the first episode is read more
