I have long heard that “Welcome to the NHK!” (which I will call WttNHK for short) is a fairly good anime with strong comedic elements. This is an understatement. What lies beneath the superficial surface that WttNHK posits itself to enclose are a myriad of thematics pertaining to human interaction, societal repression, and the core motivations behind human behaviour. Let us explore:

Story- WttNHK is about a young man (Tatsuhiro Sato) who quit going to college after he believed he was being bullied by his peers. He thus shuts himself in his cramped apartment for about four years, going outside only at night to shop for read more

I believe I first heard of Code Geass during a Lucky Star reference. During that time, I had no idea what it was or that it was even an anime. I soon started hearing more and more people talking about it and then read about it in my December 2007 edition of Newtype USA. I decided to check it out, since I had only heard good things about it. I went into watching the show having high expectations, and Code Geass did not let me down…

Story- Code Geass’ story is incredibly complex- not so much in a psychological or abstract way, but because there is read more

Ah, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei! Before I begin, let me state that I watched this anime in two days while at a sleepover with some friends, which means some episodes were watched really late into the night/morning. This may have affected my perception of the anime to some degree due to severe sleepiness. Also, this sleepover happened about 6 weeks before I wrote this review, so I may not remember every little detail about what I am discussing. Forgive me. ^^’

Story- Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei’s (SZS) story revolves around a group of schoolgirls (OK, there is one moderately important male student, but no one REALLY cares) and read more

I’d like to start off by saying that I am an avid fan of the .hack series, but have only ever seen all of .hack//SIGN and read/watched .hack//Legend of the Twilight. I am currently collecting all the games and will start playing them soon. Since I have not played the games yet, I am fairly unfamiliar with Kite and BlackRose’s characters, so I may not have been able to appreciate .hack//Legend of the Twilight (which I will call .hack//LOFT for short) to its fullest as the two main characters are based off Kite and BlackRose.

Story- .hack//LOFT’s story follows Rena and Shugo, who have just won read more

This review contains minimal spoilers! (Not that there is a lot to spoil…)

Story- Ultimate Girls’ story revolves around 3 girls who have been given special powers to fight random monsters that attack Japan every Monday. They have the ability to grow Godzilla-size, but the catch is that the longer the girls remain in giant form, the more their clothes start to disappear (how wonderfully ecchi! ^^). It would have made for a fun, humorous story with ecchi moments scattered throughout the plot, however, somebody made the bad decision to try to add a romantic plot line into the storyline which revolved around two of the read more

Just as a preliminary note, I am writing this review only having seen Jigoku Shoujo, NOT Jigoku Shoujo Futakumori. There are also minor plot spoilers ahead. With that out of the way, lets get right into it:

Story: For an episodic anime, the story was fairly engaging for the first ten or so episodes. Seeing different people in difficult circumstances and how they feel they must resort to contacting Jigoku Shoujo to send their enemies to hell is fairly amusing at first, but after seeing it over and over, it is hard for it not to become repetitive. The first ten stories are executed quite well read more

In this review, I am including both Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni and Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kai in my comments. I will be calling the anime simply "Higurashi" in my review to save time. During the few times that I do choose to differenciate between the two seasons, I will refer to "Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kai" simply as "Kai".

Story: Higurashi's storyline is stellar. It starts off as a horror/thriller anime where numerous mysteries arise in the small town of Hinamizawa. These mysterious storylines are filled with tension and suspense as the viewer fears for Keiichi's (the main character) life. Since Keiichi read more
