I have never played the Dragon's Dogma video game, but this anime actually made me interested in playing the original game, so there's that at least. Still, the Dragon's Dogma show is subpar in pretty much every category.

Both the studio that made this show (Sublimation) and the director have only one other credit, a short movie called Walking Meat that no one seems to have seen. Right then and there I should have known this anime would be a little rough with inexperienced people at the helm. Both the animation and sound are decent (4/10) but never, ever rise above mediocrity. Actually, I'll point read more

Jujutsu Kaisen is blowing up in popularity to the point where people are comparing it to the other supernatural shonen hit Demon Slayer. Honestly I think the show's gorgeous animation and sound design are winning people over so much that they can ignore the kind of mediocre writing. Personally I enjoyed the show a lot but less than others on here. If Demon Slayer was 9.5/10 then I think Jujutsu Kaisen deserves more like an 8/10 overall.

The story in JJK is bare bones basic shonen. The main character is a Good Boy who agrees to trap a demon inside of him so he can read more

So I ironically forgot there was a Steins;Gate movie that acts as a sequel to the 2011 TV series. I say ironically because the movie, Fuka Ryouiki no Deja vu, is actually all about forgetting that the character Hououin Kyouma ever existed. So is it worth a watch? It's ok but the movie is a 100% unnecessary continuation to an already-perfect ending. In other words it's "the Force Awakens of Steins;Gate content"!

I think few people would argue with me when I say Steins;Gate ended on a perfect note. SERN was defeated, the timeline was restored, both Mayuri and Kurisu are alive and well...THE END, read more

Studio Madhouse has done it again in the 2nd season of Kaiji! This is a 10/10 gambling anime. Kick Kakegurui to the curb, cuz there are no moe character designs or forced romantic relationships to be found in THIS gambling anime!

Story: 10/10. The stakes have never been higher in season 2 as Kaiji finds himself basically a slave working in a labor camp to pay off his massive debts. If he raises enough money he can buy his freedom and rejoin society above ground! How's that for motivation? There's a small moment I need to mention where Kaiji can finally afford a decent meal for read more

"Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor" is more of an obscure anime, it's an old anime from 2007, it's got a weird art style, etc. Throw all of these things out of your mind, because I'm telling you it's 100% worth it to track down this show! I was skeptical of the show at first, but it has quickly become one of my favorite anime series of all time.

Kaiji is a gambling anime about a young man named Itoh Kaiji, who owes 3 million yen to the yakuza because a friend's loan he co-signed has defaulted to him. He is forced to go on a special cruise ship read more

Hellsing Ultimate is a 10 episode OVA that better adapts the manga than the earlier TV series. Each episode is about an hour long so think about it like 10 short movies lol. It's definitely a bit of a time investment but I'm so glad I finally watched the story to its end! I'm giving Ultimate a 10/10 not because it's a perfect anime (there's no such thing as a perfect anime unless we're talking about the sports anime Keijo), but because I think it sets the standard for what this kind of OVA should be. There are 10 Hellsing manga volumes, and thus we read more

So let's get this out of the way first: even though this anime was made by author Kohta Hirano, this anime is NOT Hellsing Ultimate! Drifters: Battle in a Brand-New World War is an anime about various historical figures being plucked from their timelines and dropped in a fantasy setting (I'm talking elves, dwarves, dragons, goblins, etc.) to do battle. They are chess pieces on a cosmic board being used by two mysterious figures. The premise alone is extremely intriguing and was what got me to watch the show. Unfortunately this concept was not developed very far due to the short season of only 12 read more

Special Edition, who do these guys think they are, George Lucas!? Drifters: Special Edition is an OVA that is literally just episodes 1 & 2 of the anime stitched together to make a "movie." There is literally no reason for this to exist. I'd recommend you just watch the first 2 episodes of the anime instead, and the rest of the anime for that matter because it's good. I was hoping that this might be like the numerous "compilation movies" for other anime out there, which at least have new footage? Or maybe it would be like a director's cute, showing some really graphic scenes read more

Hellsing The Dawn is a series of 3 OVAs that are each about 10 minutes long. They serve as a prequel to Hellsing and show a young (VERY bishonen) Walter kicking Nazi ass in WW2. What's not to love here? I was ready to give this OVA a 9 because of the GORGEOUSLY animated action scenes, but the shenanigans they pulled in episode 3 brought my score down to a 7/10. For some reason I cannot fathom they decided to stack on a full trailer for the anime Drifters to the end of episode 3. Like, if you wanna make a trailer for Drifters, then read more

Haikyuu season 3: Karasuno vs. Shiratorizawa has a very apt subtitle because this truncated 10 episode season is literally just a depiction of the final battle between Karasuno and the previous representatives of Japan at the national volleyball level. I saw another review call season 3 "Haikyu S2 DLC" and honestly that's a good way to think of it. Season 2 was near perfect (I gave it a 10/10) and season 3 just adds more content to tide fans over until the next big release, so to speak. That all being said, everything I said about season 2 applies to this new season of Haikyuu read more
