I tend not to write negative reviews for shows, especially if they have strong fan bases. Inevitably the fans of the show (if they exist) will vote your review down, and as petty as it is to care, having a well reviewed... review ironically means a lot to me (I know don’t judge). Still sometimes there is a show with such a glaring divide between fanbases that I feel like it’s important to provide a fair(ish) criticism as to why some people may not like a show.

There are some creative works so good, so entertaining, and so powerful in their message, that they transcend the medium that they originated from and become something greater.

What happens when you combine the creative premise of Death Note, the character depth of your typical ecchi harem anime, and the writing quality of a Tyler Perry movie? The answer is Mirai Nikki.
I recently rediscovered my love for anime a few months ago and in that time I have focused mostly on romances, but I have taken time to check things out that seem to have built strong followings and come highly recommended. Over and over I continued to be pointed to Mirai Nikki. I now know to not trust a few individuals on what to watch. Although I have read more

Disclaimer- this review takes into account the 4 episode "sequel" to the show

With the massive rise in access to entertainment and media/pop culture, we have gotten to the point where our options on what to watch are so stratified that we have the privilege of not liking something because its not our particular taste. In the world of anime and manga this leads many to disregard shows that simply don't fit the criteria of what we find entertaining. However, this does not mean that certain shows are objectively good or bad, it sometimes means that a show is an excellent version of whatever read more
