I'm not sure why this anime is ranked so low. Without taking my personal entertainment into consideration, I believe this anime should be a solid 7.

There's been a MAJOR lack of representation of women in sports animes. So when I saw Harukana Receive and Hanebado coming out this season, I was so excited! I had low expectations going in, especially with the ecchi genre tacked on to it, but I'm having a great time so far.

The animation is absolutely gorgeous!! The sand particles are animated to perfection and the different camera angles help to capture the difficulty and excitement of this sport. Even if read more

I really enjoyed Kuzu no Honkai because the romance and characters felt more real to me than any other anime I've seen in the romance genre. While aspects of the story weren't exactly the most realistic (especially for a high school in Japan), the complex emotions that the characters were dealing with and trying to convey throughout the whole anime is what felt very genuine to me.

Generally, romance animes tend to be in the shoujo category and have very simple, cookie cutter characters and reused plot devices. They tend to retell the same story of a rose-colored, first love that satiates a certain kind read more

Boku no Hero Academia is fine. Just fine. If you don't mind a severe lack of character development and not caring about anyone at all really, then you'll like this anime. If not, well, don't blame the studio because they animated it just like the source material. It's just really disappointing to see something so average. Like, they don't give me a reason to care about the characters at all, so why would I care when they get hurt? The action is fine, I guess, but it's hard to get into when you don't give a flying horse-feather about anyone that's fighting.
On the bright side, read more

Aoharu x Kikanjuu is a fantastic anime. It is an awesome gender bender, an awesome sports anime, and an awesome friendship story. I feel like a lot of people ended up not liking this anime because they based their opinions off of the first two episodes and then were shocked with the turn it made once it really started in the 3rd ep. I want to clarify-- this is not Ouran High School Host Club with machine guns. There IS a host club in the beginning, there IS a girl who wears pants instead of a skirt, she DOES break something and initially is forced read more

Ok everyone: take a sit and listen up. This be one of my all time fav mangas (and animes) right here-- has been since I was in middle school. But I don't rec it to everyone because of a couple reasons, so here we go:

Story: 10

I love the story, what can I say? There's action, there's comedy, there's plot twists, and some serious stuff going down. I love the supernatural powers, the inclusion of historical aspects (like WWII and witch hunting), I loved the inclusion of tarot cards (in a later arc)-- it's fantastic. A main reason I don't rec it to some of my read more

2013 has started off with some wonderful animes. It's only March and I already know that Psycho-Pass is going to be either my #1 or #2 anime for this year. It's thrilling, interesting, well-developed, and oh so enjoyable.

Story- 9
The sci-fi genre doesn't always agree with me. Half are repetitive, executed poorly, confusing, or a combination of the three. Then there are some that have this beautifully unique plot that keep me on edge throughout the entire series. Psycho-Pass was one of these. The story centers around a society that has attempted to reach utopia by handing the law to machines rather than human emotion to read more

I was surprised to see that most of the reviews for this anime rated it so low! I honestly thought it was a good anime!

Story: 8
The story is very original, the first with a setting and plot like this that I've ever seen. It does get confusing at points, especially near the end, but it really kept me entertained. I think it just needed a few more episodes to develop it more.

Art: 9
I really loved the art, it's just the kind I like ^^ I enjoyed how they made the creepy Midas guy (forgot his name ^^") kind of 3D, though it was a bit read more

I first found this manga just browsing the isles at a bookstore. The cover looked cool and I'm into the whole psychics and supernatural genre, so I was like "Why not?" I didn't think it'd turn out to be this awesome.

Story: 9
I've heard of and read books about psychis escaping from an evil lab, but the story was much more than that. Psycho Busters added interesting twists and placed a huge amount of the plot on friendship and making relationships. How Kakeru was involved, how he was accepted, how the groups' bond and trust played a key factor in their saving the world- it was read more

When I first heard of the anime Shugo Chara, I was doubtful since I'm not into the whole magical-girl-let's-go-save-the-universe genre. But thanks to some encouragement, I broke down and watched it. Before I knew it, I had become a fan and looked forward to every episode to the point where I was searching everywhere to find what website was releasing the subs first. I really loved the art, the concept, the characters (especially Ikuto ^^), even the girly mushy-gushy moments. I even liked the Lulu filler, though it wasn't my favorite. I watched the complete second series and cried at the end because it was read more
