I never thought I'd ever say this. Go watch the live action movie, don't waste your time with the anime. Spoilers ahead.

I love anime set in the samurai era, unfortunately this one was a mess. I can't tell if it's because the source material is awful or the adaption was awful because the live action which was extremely trimmed down was pretty enjoyable, but the anime which had far more content (that was still rushed), was far less enjoyable, and frankly sucked. Here's why.

The fundamental story of BoTI is solid and very fitting. The arcs and the villains however are pathetically executed. First the arcs. read more

If you think SAO is awful, mediocre or overrated, you should think the exact same about this, or else you might just be a hypocrite. This anime is SAO meets TNY meets Moe Trash, with even more insane plot armor / contrivances than SAO could ever hope to have. Also, spoilers.

Bofuri has absolutely nothing going for it beyond the ever present CGDCT, which wouldn't be a problem or worthy of such a negative rating if not for the game aspect which has lead to an insane amount of the aforementioned plot convenience, awful characters and a litany of other issues.

Bofuri's lack of a (complex) story read more

This is what happens when teenage girls from tumblr meet r/im14andthisisdeep and intersectional feminism or TERFism.

This is an incredibly self deprecating, and nonsensical scribble that reads like a manga fanfiction of 50 Shades of Grey. It's a poor imitation of the aesthetic that manga like Pun Pun or Sangatsu no Lion succeed in creating, but instead of focusing on depression like those manga, it focuses on perceived women's rights issues. This manga attempts to convey a message through what some call "melancholy bait", the general atmosphere a manga has when it tries to appeal to a mature audience and convey a message on a read more

My mother always said if you don't anything nice to say about someone, don't say anything at all. Thankfully, this nightmare (and not the scarey kind, ironically) isn't a person.

The summary is a cookie cutout of a typical mystery archetype / story setting. The amnesiac in a strange place. Then there's the weird anime twists with a murder with a scythe who laughs like a popcorn machine with a fork in it. Anyways, nothing overtly special or any red flags in the summary. Except for maybe that stupid little bit about fate. Doubt fate locked you in a building. Moving on. Why it's bad.

The mystery read more

This is among the most contrived and barren waste of spaces I've ever read. In retrospect, it was entirely obvious how this was going to end out when I started reading this, but oh well.

It can hardly be called Comedy or Romance. Adult or mature sure, but not comedy and certainly not romance. It's among the crudest most fan service based manga catering to the lowest common denominator in the manga community. A barely present story with little substance or originality. An extremely rushed (certainly axed) ending. A pathetic, unemotional and implausible romance. And finally an excess of pointless and clumsy events and characters to read more

One of the most generic, wish fulfilling and self inserting designed manga I've read. It follows mountains of cliches that are laughable when unironically used. Things such as some how glasses turns a super hot guy into an incredibly mediocre looking guy. MC being a secret OP monster who is somehow skilled in every art / sport possible. Completely unbeatable in all forms of competition, always has the moral high ground and is loved by all women. Is somehow mysterious and unknown and is pretty much omnipotent as well as omniscient.

If the summary wasn't enough of a redflag, hopefully this review will be. This manga read more

This manga is super average, and I don't mean that in a bad way. To avoid spoilers since this is such a short series I don't think this will be an all too long review.

Densetsu No Yuusha No Konatsu is basically a series of oneshots of dates between the Main Character, and various women. Despite that, it's not some trashy harem that over saturates the Anime/Manga industry. It's fairly innocent and aside from one or two pairings nothing really sticks out or evokes much emotion. That said, I'm a rather cold person most of the time. To most readers I think they'll find this more read more

Spoilers.

I enjoyed the concept and the first 30-50 or so chapters, however it quickly got repetitive and ultimately ended quite poorly. I also think this manga is miscategorized. It is not a Seinen, it's a Shounen with blood and a mild acknowledgement of basic realities. The main character has a childish 'no killing' rule, as if he is a blind Batman with the morality of a 5 year old and no logical justification for his philosophy. The manga does end up having very minor character death in the end but it's hardly relevant after 170 chapters of 'You can't kill bad guys because killing is read more

Preliminary
Normally I wait until a series is over to review it, as I believe a series can to some degree be saved or ruined by it's ending. This manga however, like a shack built on sand or in a swamp is built with a flawed foundation. Spoilers.

The first few chapters of this series seemed rather interesting and promising. As proper, well done Josei is some of the best romance manga out there. I, like a specific comment I read on a chapter of this manga, expected to see the difficulties of being disabled, how to handle them, and how to provide support to such a read more

While not the worst manga I have ever read, Maison Ikkoku is certainly the manga I hate most. A seemingly unthinkable opinion given the reviews and recommendations that seem to drip of this work in buckets worth. Any and all of those reviews seem to take what I view as the reasons that this manga is a god awful piece of shit as reasons that it is amazing and wonderful, or give the manga a great rating while acknowledging how glaring these issues are. I'll try to cover them, and I can on some of them understand it is simple a difference of taste, but read more
