If you didn’t already know, there is a subset of the anime community called the Sakuga Community, whose principle value in anime lies solely within it’s production value. No matter how good or bad a show is, considering the hundreds of aspects that go into it’s production, this community will watch or drop a show on it’s quality of animation alone. While I never thought negatively of these people, I can say that I certainly never understood them. These are people who watched the entirety of Fate/Apocrypha for it’s sakuga, and watching a show THAT bad to completion just to see a few flashy read more

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been one to like idol shows. When I think of idol shows, I think of an overblown cast of generic “cute” girls whose lazy character designs all look practically identical and whose inexperienced voice actresses all sound similar and fake. I think of a show completely devoid of heart, passion, or anything to remember it by outside of the thousands of dollars worth of figurines, wall scrolls, and body pillows that accompanied each girl. When I found out Radical☆Girl Revue Starlight was going to be an idol show after watching the first promotional video, I was immediately read more

For as long as I’ve been watching anime, there has always been a considerable amount of the community who can find so much entertainment in shows that are “so bad, they’re good.” Whether it be the pandering fan service of shows like Eromanga Sensei, the comically overdone plot of shows like In Another World With My Smartphone, or the laughably edgy situations in shows like Magical Girl Site, the community always seems to find something to enjoy in shows that are simply, undeniably, and blatantly trash. But as the saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, and it looks like I’ve found my read more

Like most of Trigger’s previous anime, Darling in the FranXX is one grand presentation in service of a greater idea or message. It’s been thought through just as much as you’d expect from the studio, so you can pick it apart for days on end and still be finding new visual details, dialogues, or cuts of animation that carry some level of meaning or significance that’s trying to get your attention. Something that I think we can all agree on is that all Trigger shows, whether you think they’re good or bad, are trying to say something specific and, more importantly in this case, they’re read more

This review was written by someone who has not seen, and honestly couldn’t care less about the original 1998 OVA, Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

I’ll start by saying this anime is extremely unique in it’s presentation in that it doesn’t even feel like an anime. It doesn’t really use the medium to it’s fullest, it’s not overtly creative, and nothing about it is particularly inventive except for the fact that it ISN’T inventive at all. It feels more like a play, an opera, or a wartime drama. You know, it feels like something I’d have been assigned to read in school; an epic that read more

I’m feeling extremely listless approaching this review.

This show, After the Rain, could’ve been one of my favorite anime of all time should it had been executed for my liking…but it wasn’t.
>It’s an age gap romance, which I love; I really get into taboo romances.
>It’s a seinen manga adaptation, which I love; I tend to like shows with more mature, at least somewhat complex themes.
>And lastly, it’s a show that’s all about the theatrics; I find more cinematographic shows to be far more engaging visually, if only for how pretty it is to look at.
Unfortunately, everything was executed in either an anticlimactic or UNFOCUSED read more

I’m writing my first draft of this review with fresh tears still in my eyes following my initial watching of episode twelve of this delightful anime.

A Place Further than the Universe, or SoraYori, as my friends and I referred to it, is an adventure slice of life story about four friends going on an adventure to Antartica together to find out who they are, and who they want to become. It’s filled with either pleasantly nostalgic or relatable coming of age themes, depending on your age, and it’s main focus of many emotionally charged subjects is that of friendship and the bond formed between loved read more

Girls' Last tour should've and would've been boring as hell if this team didn't make it. I know you don't think of Studio White Fox when you think of cute girls; they did "Is The Order A Rabbit?", but they're most famous for thrillers like "Steins;Gate" and "Re:Zero". That said, they pulled this off near perfectly.

When my friend told me about this show, she said that the manga was flat out boring. She said it had no depth and it was the stereotypical cute-girls-doing-cute-things-with-nothing-to-it type of thing. I think her exact words were, "Your not going to get another hibike (Sound! Euphonium) or anything". When read more

Have I properly read the manga for Welcome to the Ballroom? No, but I have seen it; I’ve seen more than enough to know that the original creator put a ton of work and passion into his manga. While you could make the same argument for the anime, you can’t argue about the anime’s budget. Yup, that’s right ladies and gentlemen. Production I.G. themselves finally made what I think we can all agree to be a BAD ADAPTATION.

This anime has the sleek character designs of Haikuu!, the art style of Haikyuu!, the score of Haikuu!, but not the animation. What made sports shows read more

A lot of people, including myself, consider Gurren Lagann to be one of the best, most well written, anime of all time. This consideration is given by the fact that it masterfully constructed a world in which the existence of plot-holes was basically null and void, seeing as the Spiral Power, the power to literally do anything with the right amount of fighting spirit, could justify any occurrence whatsoever. If people could understand this, I don’t quite understand why nobody seemed to understand and accept Re:Creators, which not only did about the same thing, but did it in a way that made far more sense.

Re:Creators read more
