Oh wow, this was really good. Before I start a more in depth-review, I'll say this: if you have any emotions in you, go watch this. Your emotions will thank you.

Now then.

Risky / Safety is basically about an apprentice shinigami named Risky and an apprentice angel named Safety who share the same body (which is 13cm tall). Risky is present when the person they're in tune with emotionally is sad, and Safety is there when he or she is happy. Moe, a slightly insecure junior high girl, is this person for most of the series even though they go off on read more

I kind of disagree with the disappointment of the other reviewers. I followed this thing religiously and it beat out, for me, every other spring 2009 anime I tried. Here's why: it's a moé supernatural romance comedy with a main female lead with fox ears THAT IS ACTUALLY GOOD.

And very good it is.

Okay, I'll admit, it has some clichés, but they are overshadowed by the expert handling of some of them. What really gets me is that it balances the moé factor with some really deep moments.

The art itself is nice and moé, just the way I like it. The character read more

I want to live in Hidamarisou.

More than any other slice-of-life I've seen, I want to live this perfect life. Yes, this is a perfect life kind of slice-of-life: everybody's always happy, they live on their own and go to a high school for art, and they do fun things even when things look boring.

Now the story...uh...who cares about plot, it's basically a direct feed of happiness and sunshine into your head. I grew rainbows out of my eyes after watching this. And no that's not painful. It feels warm and fuzzy.

I absolutely love how SHAFT does anime, really, and this is read more

I picked this up during a street fair in my town for $4. I've never seen the anime nor anything else except for a few figures I happened to find of Belldandy that I did not buy. Regardless, I thought I'd give it a shot even though I'm more into moé stuff.

I think my general enjoyment was an exponential curve. At the beginning, it was "ok". It gradually went to "interesting", then "awesome", then "holy shit", then "WOWWW." By the end I was enraptured. I think what this movie does is it sends you into the very essence of read more

So I was bored in a free period at school today and I decided to randomly go through MAL pages until I hit something vaguely interesting. I happened across a page on the producer of this and saw sorta piqued my interest, so I watched it.

I am so happy I was bored enough to find this gem.

Natsuiro no Sunadokei, in my opinion, is what a romance anime should be. I really hate romance anime where the guy is a perverted idiot and the girls are stereotypes who throw their fanservice-prone-selves on him either willingly or unwillingly. Thankfully, Kou has a brain read more

These two very short stop-motion animation pieces are extremely enjoyable, especially if you do not have much time to watch them, since they are both under a minute long (not including the credits). The story, if you can pull any story at all, is quite simple: Kotatsu Neko is a lazy cat who likes TV and also goes totally EXTREME if he gets frustrated.

The art itself, being a stop-motion animation, is mostly how it's animated, and it is very well done. It's mostly fluid, with great camera angles and overall good craftsmanship on the objects in the room and of course Kotatsu Neko read more
