There are anime that truly leave a monumental impact. Not just on the industry, but for each individual viewer. Shows that are so addicting that you just can’t seem to stop watching them. Shows that combine many pivotal elements of storytelling together to create something that is genuinely incredibly well produced. Anime that make you wholeheartedly pleased to have become a part of the anime community.

For me, Attack on Titan is one of these anime. Which essentially means that the four year gap between seasons felt like an EXCRUCIATINGLY long time…

However in all seriousness, I perfectly understand why it took so long to produce the read more

In the beginning, we see a dragon; how frightening!
It flies across the sky as fast as lightning
Finally, it arrives at the apartment of a woman
Does it plan on eating this helpless human?

When the woman goes over and opens the door
She beholds the dragon, and stands rooted to the floor
But then to the woman’s great surprise
The dragon transforms into a girl right before her eyes!

The dragon girl calls herself Tohru, and gives her thanks
To the woman who had recently pulled a sword out of her flanks
And so that her debt to the woman can be repaid
Tohru asks to work for her as her maid!

The woman, Kobayashi, read more

“Men, what is our mission?
Extermination! Not a single creature spared!
There's only one thing to do:
Create a living Hell!” - Tanya Degurechaff

Youjo Senki’s protagonist Tanya quickly rose to become my personal favorite character of the winter 2017 season. I guess psychotic loli nazis make for exquisite characters.

________________________________

Plot: 6/10

Set in an alternate universe that is similar to the era of the first World War, Youjo Senki follows Tanya Degurechaff as she fights in the Empire’s army. This empire is essentially the world’s version of Germany. In fact, every territory mentioned in the anime shares a geographic resemblance to actual European countries in our world. The major difference read more

I hate to simply reiterate what others have been saying, but no other phrase fits this anime more perfectly than "cute girls doing cute things." Anime like New Game are usually classified as moe, a genre that is one of the most common out there, with multiple titles airing every anime season. While enjoyed by some, others have become exasperated over seeing what is essentially the same basic thing continuous done over and over again in these shows without much difference between them. So what did New Game's author do to add a little flair of originality to his work? He changed the setting.

That's read more

*This review contains light spoilers*

From my perspective, we are living in a time where well crafted anime with a myriad of originality and detail are unfortunately being released at a frequently declining rate. Because of this, many in the anime community are constantly on the lookout for something new and creative. So naturally, when an anime like Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu airs, a show that boasts morbidly unique twists on the popular but overused fantasy/game world genre, it gains a lot of popularity and is generally well received in the anime community. However just because something is innovative doesn't mean that it is a read more

Preliminary
Although an incredibly rare occurrence, anime that transcend the term "masterpiece" actually do exist. You may doubt it, but you simply need to turn your attention to Onara Gorou, and I guarantee that you will believe me when I tell you that this show is beyond perfection.

This magical journey takes viewers through many real life experiences where expertly animated individuals are descending into sin, falling into despair, and other tragic happenings that unfortunately exist in reality. This anime shows us the corruption of society through these all too real events, opening the eyes of viewers to the nightmarish world in which they reside. While other read more

Before there was a Mars of Destruction, the brilliant minds at Idea Factory produced an anime so incomprehensibly outstanding that no other show of that era could possibly hope to compare to its greatness. A true gem of its time, this critically acclaimed anime earned the praise of countless people worldwide. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you...

TENKUU DANZAI SKELTER+HEAVEN!!!

Plot
Skelter Heaven opens with a view of the earth from OUTER SPACE! As it slowly zooms in on our home planet (taking up about 10% of the anime's running time), viewers can't help but anticipate the awesomeness that is to come. Finally, we are presented with read more

Once in awhile I'll come across a great anime that boasts an exemplary plot with dynamic and intriguing characters. Then there are shows like Kiss x Sis, which possess neither of these qualities, but are enjoyable to watch for...other reasons.

I was quite impressed with this show. Sure, the plot is limited to a bunch of extremely sexual scenes and the characters don't have much depth, but Kiss x Sis is able to succeed where other anime like it have not. I've watched plenty of harem/ecchi anime and have really enjoyed some of them. However I find that a lot of these anime fail to effectively read more

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri was the show that I was the most excited for this anime season. Sure, it seemed like a lot of the ideas were borrowed from Wit studio's other anime, the widely known and critically acclaimed Attack on Titan, but I was willing to overlook that and view Kabaneri as its own, separate anime. I was initially impressed by the first two episodes, however the hype train slowly ran out of steam as the anime progressed. It was truly heading down the right track, but the anime simply derailed itself when it failed to expand its plot beyond generic characters fighting mindless zombies. read more

Mayoiga (Anime) add (All reviews)
Hey, are you looking for a well made mystery anime that boasts a suspenseful plot with intriguing characters? Then DON'T watch Mayoiga! This show failed miserably to be the good mystery anime that it tried so hard to be. Mayoiga got consistently worse and more agrivating to watch as each episode passed by. In fact, it almost drove me to take a bus tour to an abandoned town divode of life and technology myself just so that I wouldn't have to watch this disgrace on my PC every week.

Plot: 2/10

With an intriguing premise, I figured that the overall story would be quite interesting. However since read more
