If you enjoyed the main show as much as I did, then this comes as a nice surprise. It’s basically just a little peak into an alternate reality where Yuuri and Chito try their best to explain and talk about some of the events in the show. It’s comparable to the extra panels in the manga that explain the world more, but done in a more humorous way. Each episode follows that episode of the show, so this can be watched either alongside the main series or afterwards.

There really isn’t much else to say. If you liked the main show, and just want a little read more

Oh boy. This was an experience. And not the good kind.

Let me start by saying that I am very biased when it comes to P.A. Works. They are probably my favorite anime studio out there, and everything I have watched of theirs has been enjoyable at worst and masterful at best. Unfortunately, with every good basket of fruit, there’s got to be that one with a worm inside. And this is a huge worm.

I understand that this anime was created as a way to make money. Cygames have a lot of sway, and their funding has led to more than a few anime projects being read more

Gintama (Anime) add (All reviews)
This is a review of just this season of Gintama. It’s not Zura, It’s Katsura.

Understanding how I feel about Gintama is difficult. Explaining how I feel is even more difficult. It manages to combine some of the most hilarious jokes and self-referential humor with some of the most interesting character arcs I’ve seen in a shonen show, and somehow jumps between these two things in the same episode without it feeling jarring. It manages to combine sci-fi, comedy, historical drama, action, slice of life, and parody into one tight bundle. I suppose the only real way to explain this show is to not try. It’s read more

Fantasy and adventure are things that I am often skeptical of when it comes to anime, not because they are inherently bad things, but because of the number of times I have been burned by wasted potential in those particular genres. Fairy Tail is, unfortunately, one of the worst offenders here, especially because the things it does right it does so well.

The world that this show sets up is fascinating. The idea of mages and guilds and the laws of magic are all very interesting and have lots of potential, but like most things in this show, that potential is wasted.

“Gather around, gather around, it’s time for Yami Shibai....”

Yami Shibai is complicated to review. It’s obviously got problems, but I find that overall it is enjoyable as pure entertainment at the very least.

Season 3 is, in my opinion, the highlight of the series. It contains (light) continuity throughout the episodes, though they aren’t fully touched on until the finale, and the themes presented were more interesting to me.

The stories here were varying in quality, as is the usual case for this show. Most were unsettling, and the ones that weren’t acted as great comedy, even though that may not have been the intent. The read more

Oh Tokyo Ghoul. You have been on a steady decline since your inception. And this season marks the depths of how low this show is willing to sink to.

I’ll keep this brief, the opener of the show is perhaps the worst opener I have ever seen. We are plunged straight into a battle between a confusing number of characters, all of which seem to have unexplainably changed sides at various points throughout the show. This goes on for several episodes before the show completely changes mood into more of a slice of life for a bit, and then jerks right back around for more battles read more

“Nyanpasu!” - Roughly translates into: “This review is for the series as a whole.” It’s a very rough translation.

Non Non Biyori is a special kind of show. It somehow manages to make you feel as though you are still living through your childhood. I think the key word to describe it is simple. It is a simple story about simple people doing simple things. And it has brought me more joy than any other anime by a landslide. This show is therapy for a tired soul. Let it do it’s work and relax a bit.

The story of the show is something we have seen before, read more

I will be avoiding any plot details at all, as spoilers will ruin this show. Aside from some essential episode 1 world building information, I will be as vague as possible.

Shinsekai Yori is ultimately a fantasy story that shows the complex ways that humans will adapt to their situation in order to survive. The show starts off right away with setting the scene for us, a world that is far different than our own current world due to various events. Civilization has basically restarted, and the world as we know it is no more.

Our main characters live in a small village in the wilderness, read more

This review is for the series as a whole. I will be avoiding plot details other than necessary information.

Mushishi is an experience. It’s something that rattles your brain with such unique and well executed ideas yet still manages to leave you feeling relaxed by the end of most episodes. It strikes a fine balance between peaceful, mystical, unsettling, and sometimes terrifying on a metaphysical level.

In this series, we follow a Mushishi named Ginko, someone who acts as a sort of bridge or doctor between humans and mushi. Mushi are strange and mystical creatures that few are even aware of, and they are able to read more

I’m going to try to keep this review as vague and non-specific as possible, as I truly believe that this is a story best experienced blind. To put it simply: this show makes me very happy. If I’m having a rough day, just putting on the soundtrack will instantly make me feel better. The world presented is interesting, the characters are precious, and the entire presentation is a constant reminder of happier times. This is a show about growing, about loving, about accepting, and most importantly about the value of change. And it is absolutely worth your time.

Story: 9/10
The story here is fairly straightforward if read more
