Pearl Boy (Manga) add

Preliminary (90/? chp)
Pearl Boy is frustrating because it gave me blue balls and the ending pissed me the fuck off.

The last season is full of constant whiplash moments, it keeps getting darker and darker until it feels like you missed a chapter somewhere because how tf did we get to this point. Why is this a action series now, I thought this was a drama?

Most of the side characters that were prominent at during S1 and S2 get completely shoved to the side or their little subplots just seem to have been forgotten. SPEAKING OF FORGETTING, wtf happened to Dooshik midway through??? Again it feels like I ...

Futakoi (Anime) add
Futakoi is difficult to sit through.

The cast is way too overblown due to the gimmick, and because of that some members of the harem basically had no goddamn screentime.

The Chigusa twins for example fade completely to the background once their episode was done and over with. Lala and Lulu were just there for comedic relief, same goes for the teacher twins. The Shirogane twins are the most interesting and overall best girls, but due to them coming into the series late they also very quickly fade as we have to focus on the very, very boring "main" girls.

The Sakurazuki twins have the same gimmick ...

Aho Girl (Manga) add
It's a silly, stupid comedy that goes all out with over the top reactions and absolute dipshit characters.

Sometimes you might think that a character has a brain but NO, they are just as stupid as the rest of the cast.

Yoshiko manages to be annoying but in a charming way. She's just so highly energetic and constantly gets up no matter how many times she gets beat down (literally) by Akkun. There were certain characters that I wish could've gotten more screentime or perhaps SOME sort of development, since there actually are some storylines that get a conclusion, but overall I think the author ...

While I was watching the series, I initially thought that it was doing way too much. It was trying to focus on SO many characters and subplots that seemingly don't connect at a first glance. What is Arajin's problem? What is Matakara's damage? Why is Mahoro so obsessed with Marito? It gives us hints and sprinkles but actual concrete conclusions are sparse.

It wasn't until the last episode where I finally understood wtf even the story was about. This whole time I thought it was leading up to Arajin getting over Mahoro in order to connect with his childhood friend again, making me really dislike the ...

What went wrong?...Everything.
Absolutely everything you could think of went wrong.

The animation is bad. The writing is god awful. Most of the new characters, especially from the other universes, suck ass and a vast majority of the action is just plain uninteresting to follow. I'm already not the biggest fan of fight scenes that stretch on and on and on but some of these were dissapointing on base levels such as emotional investment of who should win and who should lose.

The first two arcs are a slog to sit through as they are just extended recaps of the movies. If you haven't watched the movies, ...

It's a decent enough harem series where every girl is attractive in different ways. There is an actual story (although a rather simple one) and some sort of progression each episode wheter it be to the actual plot or character development (although also rather simple)

The setting and side cast is charming, as well the concept of incredibly beautiful aliens suddenly arriving to earth and assimilating with humans but finding it troublesome due to their differing customs. It's nothing special, but it's certainly a series that helped inspired the ecchi harem work of today, wheter that's a negative or a positive is up to your own ...

This is one of those romantic comedies where the main and consistent theme is "constipation".

There is no love progression, there is no character development, there is no plot, it's just a loop of cliches and fourth wall breaks that only work if you know anything about the harem genre or have interacted with a large majority of japanese romantic media in the otakusphere from the 2000s - 2010s.

It teases you with things that COULD happen but then immediatly does a 180, almost in a mocking manner; "HAH! You actually thought the character's feeling MATTER??? Like any actions actually have CONSEQUENCES??? You're so fucking stupid LOOOL"

All ...

The animation while more fluid than the TV anime isn't anything to write home about, none of the movie original characters really matter nor do they do much except for the start and the end. It is the first movie of the franchise so I suppose the overall sort of "clumsy" feeling that it gives you makes sense, as it is very clearly not a movie meant to be watched in the current year or ever again.

The story is a loose "what if?" recap of the very first arc. Instead of the Pilaf gang we are introduced to this weird demon guy and his very ...

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Me & Roboco. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of manga history and otaku culture most of the jokes will go over a typical reader's head.

There's also Roboco's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into her characterisation - her personal philosophy draws heavily from Weekly Shounen Magazine tropes, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about 人生.

As a consequence people who dislike ...

I don't know why I keep doing this. I don't know why I keep doing this. I don't know why I keep fucking doing this but every single damn time I still fucking put up with this shit even though I know I'm gonna hate it. I knew it would suck, I knew I would be wasting hours of my life I could spend watching something I actually enjoy, I knew that I have so many better shows both on in my backlog.

Ok, biggest issue, main problem that really pissed me off with every damn MINUTE that passes is Yuki, she is so generic.

I ...
