Anime isn’t the only place one finds the Isekai genre – a genre where the name literally means “another world” or “different world”. One place in particular the genre is popular is fanfiction, but why bring up fanfiction when discussing this particular Anime? To truly understand the problem with this particular Anime, I think it helps to bring up what’s been done in fanfiction, which while at times does the genre quite well at other times does not.

Imagine a story where an OC (original character) falls into say Lord of the Rings and ends up solving the political problems of the race of Men instead read more

For a show which preached so much about creativity, expectations certainly weren’t met.

In fact, I think one of the major issues with the show lies with the messages the show attempts preaching. While I can’t blame the show for having such messages having dug into the actual back story regarding this particular series, the fact remains the messages the show puts forth regarding creativity are unrealistic. There is an attempt towards the end to lampshade the messages, yet this ends up falling flat because of issues regarding the characters not to mention the plot.

WARNING - THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

I'll start off by saying my review is not at all reflective of the rest of the Space Adventure Cobra series - simply the one I've watched. Cobra is a Gary Stu. This needs to be said simply because male characters need to be called out just like female characters. Does this mean one can't enjoy the movie? No, but it's not a bad idea to go into the movie a bit wary.

The next thought popping into my head regarding the Anime is how "that's not how love works". This movie definitely tries playing up the true love angle for read more

The best place to start my review is to point out the fact the ending left me majorly disappointment. More specifically, we got all of this build up and then got a rather lack luster ending which didn't connect with previous episodes like it did, but in the end - I felt the motivations of the two main characters rather lack luster.

Now, let's get back to the build up. I loved how until the final arc there were little things here and there which ended up picked up in the final mystery arc. Unfortunately, the ending left the ultimate villain feeling rather lack luster and read more

Preliminary
I started out really liking the series. In fact, if I were simply reviewing the first arc of the series which I read entirely I'd give this series a rather high score overall despite the fact the art really does need work.

However, when the second arc started the entire work devolved into a major mess, one where - I guess the best way to put it is this. The charm which drew me into this particular manga series ended up lost. The character who stood as an underdog in a given system no longer was one. There was a prime opportunity to show his character read more

The best place to start with Hand Shakers is the artwork.

Don’t get me wrong – the artwork is at times beautiful, the kind of artwork with a level of detail I’ve always liked seeing in fanart as I’ll spend quite a few minutes taking in all of the details. The fact one needs quite a few minutes to take in the artwork should honestly make the reader of this review realize one of the main issues with this series. There’s not enough time to really take in all of the details. At times the level of detail in both backgrounds and character design ends up read more

I don’t dislike the genre, but something is definitely wrong when I find myself reminded of poorly written fanfic written by a fan wanting to self-insert themselves into the fandom by having a MC fall into the fandom.

Don’t get me wrong, there are well written fanfics out there where a character falls into fandom just like there are well made Anime for the Isekai genre, but this – this isn’t one of them.

I think one of the things which stood out for me came down to how much of a special snowflake the MC and his best friend are. Taichi never really struggles in the read more

While this OVA is a sequel to a movie, I honestly feel the viewer doesn't need to watch the movie to understand the OVA, yet this might end up being the best route given the issues which cropped up in the movie and how the shift in producers between the movie and OVA resulted in actual improvements.

I love the fact the sequel relies a lot less on references to other series and relies a whole lot more on being it's own thing. The wacky humor is more in line with the wacky humor we see in other shows of the crackfic genre which are successful read more

I still remember when I first joined MAL and how quite a few people recommended this particular Anime, so when I finally picked up the Anime I found myself quite excited only to find myself opening a can of worms.

I guess a great way of summing up this particular Anime is to bring up the fact the title for said Anime is based off a Jackie Chan movie, yet that's the only actual reference to said movie. People talk about how many references there are to classic Anime, but often these references are superficial not to mention I remember all to well how certain fans read more

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

I get it. Middle school students are immature. They've no perspective of what the real world is like, so they make dumb mistakes. This can make for good drama if handled well, yet in this particular work - the immaturity of middle school students is handled very poorly, more specifically the narrative never treats the actions of the characters are lacking in maturity and instead focuses on the problems of the characters - which are honestly small in comparison to some of the hefty problems others end up dealing with.

Getting even more specific here, of the three middle school students who the read more
