Preliminary
To be honest, I couldn’t get into it the first time I read it, I only got through the first 15 pages. I decided to give it another shot, and I really wasn’t feeling it until a twist at the end of the first chapter.

STORY:
A high school girl, Mirai, who has no interest in studying and particularly no interest in history, picks up a weird looking rock and posts a photo online. She is then contacted by Noah, an archaeologist who crashes through the window via helicopter and informs her of his interest in the rock she found.

It is revealed that the rock contains a read more

STORY:
This series has a very fun concept and setting. It has a middle-eastern style setting in a fantasy world of magic. It is an adventure series for the most part, not only geographically but also ventures in ideology and politics. The characters travel to different countries and are either involved in the land's political situation or partake in some sort of quest. The adventure aspect is definatly the most appealing aspect of this series, however, 2/3rds the way in, it dives deeper into politics and ideology, which is much more text heavy and differs from the "fun" - which may not be to everyone's taste. read more

SPOILER ALERT
Some story arcs and episodes revealed, but no major plot.

As a reader of the manga, I an utterly disappointed with the amount of unnecessary filler and changes to the manga. Although a little bit of filler is needed in anime, this season had more that it needed. I enjoyed the parts were they fleshed out canon bits, such as the fights during the festival and the final exam, but there were entire episodes fabricated such as Tsuyu's internship. The fact that this is a seasonal series rather than a long ongoing one remove the need to make space between the manga. So the only read more

As a fan of yokai/ghost stories, I was happy to see a series the felt with yokai in a more lighthearted fashion, not portraying them as a nuisance or a threat as many other series do. We get to see spirits and humans living in harmony.

The art is fine, nothing special, but watchable and consistent. The art style is generic, and doesn't stand out, making it look quite boring from the outside. The two protagonists can be unrecognisable in comparison to other, similar looking anime characters.

The major fault of this series, and that made me almost drop, is it's characters. The main character, Ashiya, is read more

Origin (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
As the illustrator for one of my favourite ongoing mangas right now: Dr. Stone, I thought I would check out his own ongoing series - Origin.

I must say, like the art in Dr. Stone, Boichi has also managed to maintain high quality art in Origin, even more detailed in fact. (Although that is to be expected for a bimonthly? manga.) I’ve read the first few chapters of Sun Ken Rock and was really not into it though.

The premise is quite simple, and not very original though. It it set in the year 2048 around a humanoid robot - Origin, who aims to blend into a read more
