With the change of staff members, I must admit that I was rather perplexed about this new season. Susumu Mitsunaka is not at the head of the staff, replaced by Masako Satou who had worked on some episodes in the previous seasons. She is therefore someone already very familiar with the series. The other significant change is the absence of Takahiro Chiba as chief animation director who had been credited on 42 episodes so you can easily guess that his absence will be significant on the visuals for this fourth season.

However...

I am really dismayed when I regularly see some comments about this season. It is read more

It is obvious that after 60 episodes, as a viewer, our expectations change according to the story, the characters and their development, their evolution. The first seasons were entertaining with its intense battles, its appetizing dishes which always made you want to snack and of course the famous foodgasm. But does the series still manage to satisfy spectators four seasons later?

This season continues the battle between the Tootsuki rebels and the Elite Ten led by Azami Nakiri. It is obvious the main characters are affected by this confrontation, in particular Erina who decides to firmly oppose her father since the last season. Regarding Erina, I read more

Hoshiai no Sora could be a gem. I must admit that this series differs from other sports series thanks to its realistic setting and its themes. This series will talk about dysfunctional families, domestic abuses, difficulties about social pressure and also gender identity issues. For these reasons, Hoshiai no Sora can not leave you indifferent, whether you agree or not with the purpose of the anime, i think this show is at least thought-provoking

Hoshiai no Sora is not really a typical sports anime. Sports is not the main theme but a way to develop characters, their interactions and their evolution. Anyway, Hoshiai doesn't follow the read more

Given (Anime) add (All reviews)
I think that many of you won't even try the first episode of this series because of its "shounen-ai" tag. A simple "no thank you" and you will return to your other occupations.

I can understand that "shounen-ai" (and by extension "yaoi") can't be a genre that fascinates you. The "yaoi" often represents the fantasies of fujoshi / fudanshi rather than reality. We can have the usual "uke" (the "passive") and "seme" ("active" character) relationships and it can relate harassing, non-consensual relationships and maybe beyond. But forget all your preconceptions because to be honest, Given is probably the most surprising series of its season.

I think that sometimes, to relax, we need to explore other unusual places, almost exotic, to realize how the nature around us is so exceptional. That's what Yuru Camp is trying to demonstrate. We don't always need awesome things like explosions, magic powers to make an interesting show.

Story: Yuru Camp focuses on a theme: camping. We follow the daily life of Shima Rin (nicknamed Shimarin) who goes camping regularly on her days off. She meets the happy Nadeshiko who knows nothing about camping. After a little conversation and a delicious dinner in front of the incredible Mount Fuji, Nadeshiko develops a taste for camping.

To all appearances Children of the Whales seemed to be a promising anime. I have the impression that the series held all the necessary elements to be a memorable work: partially interesting and potentially exceptional worldbuilding, splendid artistic direction, intriguing characters... but after 2 episodes, the series goes in another direction and gets worse gradually. In the end, we have a lot of tears, melodrama, inconsistencies, and far too much in my opinion.

Story: Chakuro is 14 years old and is an archivist / scribe on the Mud Whale, an island that floats on a sea of endless sand. That island has several specificities. There are read more

IRL relationships are sometimes exhausting. They require us to constantly give a good image of ourselves, although this is not always the case. At work, we must always do our job as best possible, to evolve in the company, to get satisfaction from our boss (and prevent him from getting angry with you), and of course our livelihood and to provide needs of our family. With friends, we strive to behave in the most appropriate way possible and relationships can sometimes seem rigid and distant. There are things that we don't allow ourselves to tell (being a NEET for example) because we are afraid to read more

Gamers! (Anime) add (All reviews)
Yeah ! Another adaptation of light novel about a rom-com focused on otaku high school students who like to play video games. It is true that we didn't have enough similar animes and studio Pine Jam was kind enough to realize it. A big thank-you.

Gamers! is your seasonal generic anime and my expectations weren't high but it is not even satisfying because it tries to be funny by repeating gags based on misunderstandings all along the anime till this concept is exhausted.
We have a series with a lambda protagonist named Keita Amano who loves to play video games. He will meet progressively people who read more

Love relationships are inherent in our daily lives. Most of us have experienced and we know how difficult it can be to maintain this relationship for various reasons. Discord, differences of opinion, lack of confidence etc. Sometimes we question ourselves and we try to understand why the couple did not last. But in Koi to Uso couples are created from a database measuring the compatibility between two individuals. The logical question is: can we trust these statistics? Does not reality go beyond theories?
But... Koi to Uso doesn't seem to waste its time. And I find a melodramatic and insane triangle love (rectangle?) again.

I started this film in the hope of initiating myself to the historical series because it is true that the "historical" genre isn't my cup of tea. I didn't see the original series and I didn't play visual novel so I discovered this series with this new movie. This film takes up the main plot but there have been some changes if I understand correctly.

Why didn't I enjoy this movie and why wouldn't I recommend it?

This movie seems to have skipped many important passages. We move from a plot to another without understanding the link between the two stories.
The characters have no characterization and the read more
