"You're just my father, don't give me advice" - Saiki Kusuo

Comedy is a very tough genre to excel at. Why? It's because of the difficulty in knowing what tickles people's funny bone. School comedies are even more tougher to work since the school setting makes it hard to step out and make people laugh. Now there are many supernatural school comedies but none of them made me laugh. Except Saiki Kusuo. Behold, the anime that made a comedy lover like me already decide it's score at a 10 in the middle of watching the show (I decide on ratings after binging a show). This is read more

None of you might know that I had written a review for this show before since I was a rookie to anime and MAL in general (Don't worry, the old review is at the end of this :P). In fact, Kokoro Connect was my 18th anime and my first review, much like every other person's first review it was embarrassing. I 10/10ed everything and called it the best anime of all time. Clearly I fanboyed at this show. Then, more than a year and a half later, I reminisced the love I had for this show since then and much like Aoki, wanted to find read more

"A faint clap of thunder Clouded skies, Perhaps rain comes. Will you stay here with me?” 

Rain. We always associated rain with something negative, there's even the popular kid's song that goes "Rain rain go away" for that matter, but the thing is, like many other things in this world, some find the positive in it. Kotonoha no Niwa explored the connection between love and rain, and got a great result in the end.

Kotonoha no Niwa was made by the then up-and-coming (now established and famous) Makoto Shinkai. Once again, a romance, the movie although short had a lot to convey. It explored how rain and read more

"Musubi is the old way of calling the local guardian god. This word has profound meaning. Typing thread is Musubi. Connecting people is Musubi. The flow of time is Musubi. These are all the god's power. So the braided cords that we make are the god's art and represent the flow of time itself. They converge and take shape. They twist, tangle, sometimes unravel, break, and then connect again. Musubi - knotting. That's time."

Time. It always has a lot to do with memories. Only after spending time with people can we make memories. But what if the flow of time is altered? As human beings, we read more

"I have no desire to kill you. In fact, you're not worth killing. Killing you, would only tarnish my blade." - Jin

Time and time again I've iterated that there's no such thing as "perfect". Perfection is impossible to have, because it's whole ideology is completely subjective. What's perfect in one thing is not necessarily going to have a unanimous agreement between people simply because their opinion on a particular thing's perfection is like I said subjective. Nevertheless we always see things get close to it. Coal mines were overtaken by steam, which in turn was overtaken by all the renewable energy. It's not perfect, it's read more

Now before you (the fanboys) rush into my profile calling me a hypocrite for not 9/10ing Food Wars for the third time, hear me out here. It's a good show. Just that it wasn't good enough. I think J.C Staff themselves understood that something was wrong, hence the step of making a split cour and figuring out how to get things right next time. Dewa, hajimeru yo!

Somehow this felt kinda average to be honest. I expected it to go at a better pace and cover stuff properly but frankly I couldn't find read more

Recently I was out of anime to watch and was looking for a few of them and came across Dakara boku wa H ka dekinai. I heard a lot of praise especially for it's second half and as I was dropping anime quite a lot here and there I thought about giving a shot and let's just say it didn't go well for me...

Story: 2/10

At best I could describe the anime as "border to hell" with a 2. That's the most I could ever give it for the story section. Call me wierd, but I am very particular about a plot in an Ecchi anime, read more

Every now and then, you see one show in a season that no matter what other shows you watch it sticks in your mind, and slowly but surely it becomes your AOTS, or Anime of the Season. Osake wa fuufu ni natte Kara is my AOTS for Fall 2017, easily edging out Urahara and more importantly edging out fan favorite Shokugeki no Souma's third season. How? How did such a small and less known (in comparison) title beat out Shokugeki? Read on and find out.

Being my first entry to the "short anime" sub-genre, I felt quite irritated at first that a show was just read more

The Gintama series loves to troll it's viewers with false announcements like it's 'cancellation' and a 'Shinsengumi movie' apart from many other trolls (the biggest of which was a movie of the Benizakura arc which was a reality) and this was no other. Sunrise knows that it's fans want a Gintoki background story and they delivered one... Just kidding.

Story: 8/10

For a 10 minute 'episode' it had lots of intense moments (talking about the actual Shiroyasha part here) and though it was pure troll it still made you feel how an actual show or movie would be if it was a reality. Why an 8? Even read more

This may seem like any other special you see for other Anime but for Gintama this was a whole new deal. This was a trial episode of the popular manga Gintama and to see if a viable anime adaptation could be possible or not, and obviously 12 years later we know it did do it's job perfectly. Thanks to many reasons you could consider this the first ever episode of Gintama as well since this was released in 2005, a year before the green-lit superhit Gintama TV show entered it's first season in 2006.

The story was divided into two unequal parts, the first just read more
