Major is one of my favorite anime franchises of all time, let alone my favorite sports anime franchise by quite some distance. It’s characterization, intense matches and long-running storytelling present in many seasons with consistency always captivated me in so many ways. With its successor, Major 2nd having a very impressive first season (especially for being the sequel to a long-running success story already and not disappointing like a Boruto compared to Naruto), I was quite excited for this new season of Major to drop back in April. Here are some of my thoughts on the 8th overall season of the Major franchise and the read more

Silver Spoon was a manga written by Hiromu Arakawa (most famously known for creating the international sensation known as Fullmetal Alchemist), that surrounds itself around agriculture, farming and personal growth - which does feel already pretty personal knowing Arakawa's background, as she was born and raised around a massive farming background of her own.

Whilst I've always been a city boy, shifting country to country to live in the urban areas where take out for food is easy, and everything is convenient from internet, to meeting up to partake in various kinds of fun activities in places like malls, parks, game centers, etc, I was very read more

The Promised Neverland was one of the first manga I ever read, the first manga I bought and was a manga I stuck with for many years, so I clearly feel a little bit sad that this manga is finally complete and the journey was over. But sadly those emotions are also clouded by tons of disappointment by the end as it was almost depressing seeing how far this manga fell from grace overtime.

Story & Writing (3/10)

The manga in my opinion, easily has one of the best starts in all of manga for me with the Escape Arc. It's a simple concept but with the read more

I'm an avid fan of the Ghost in the Shell franchise, having absolutely loved the original Ghost in the Shell movies, as well as adoring the original Stand Alone Complex anime (enough to have that show in my top 10 anime of all time). Arise was a massive misstep though but it's in a different timeline from the other ones so I can avoid talking much about this though.

So whilst I saw a lot of negative reception towards the trailers for this new edition of Stand Alone Complex or SAC_2045, it didn't really hinder my excitement too much. I wasn't expecting a masterpiece but still read more

A manga that truly is a magical experience for me.

"Destroy all humankind. They can't be regenerated.", is a manga that takes place in the 1990s where the central theme behind the manga is a popular card game that took the 90s and 00s by storm, Magic: The Gathering. A game which I played a ton with my friends when I was a very young boy myself, and a game I cherished back in the day.

This manga is also created by Katsura Ise and Takuma Yokota, the combo that created one of my favorite manga of all time, Onanie Master Kurosawa. Hell, Takuma Yokota also created read more

I haven't read the Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan manga, but Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan: Shidou-hen reminds me of Gintama's Slip Arc back in 2017, an arc showing some of Gintama's comedy arcs that were not adapted beforehand, and combining it into one to deliver a comedy only season that existed to deliver some laughs without really affecting the story too much.

I was surprised when I heard this was even happening, but I was curious to see how Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan: Shidou-hen would deliver and stand in comparison to its first two seasons (which I gave a 9 and an 8 respectively).

Comedy (7/10)

Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun is a manga that is beloved by a bunch of my friends in real life and online, so when I heard it was getting an anime in 2020, I let my curiosity get the better of me by reading it before seeing the adaptation itself.

Excuse me if the review is poorly written compared to my other ones, I just wrote this on the fly without preparing well like the others (since I wanted to avoid spoiling much detail to the story). These are just brief thoughts.

Story/Writing (2/10)

It is a very uninteresting story that felt shoddy in terms of consistency. There were a few read more

Yakuza idols. Welcome to anime, where fucking yazuka idols exist. Quite the premise to take in when reading about this show.

When I first heard about it, I thought it was so stupid.

And after finishing it, it's still so stupid.

But I still wanted to make a short review on my thoughts on it, so here they are:

Comedy (3/10)

Back Street Girls takes overexaggerated humor to the max and way past that to the degree that the jokes can get played out really quickly.

It's just screaming with dramatic sound effects in the background and that's your comedy. That's just it.

There are some dumb moments that are genuinely hilarious read more

Island (Anime) add (All reviews)
The Summer 2018 season is wrapping up slowly and it's that time again.

Today, I will be reviewing Island, an anime with time travel, romance and lolis!

Story (1/10)

Island had a really terrible story.

The writing immediately suffers from absurd pacing where it either goes too slow with nothing happening at all, or goes too fast with major plot twists and elements failing to work due to being rushed to hell.

And whatever content that was given, was super boring and for a guy that loves SciFi shows a lot, this did not interest me one bit.

It felt like they were writing this anime but it had no soul read more

13 years. After over a decade, with thousands of anime airing and after waves of change has occured with anime and the anime industry as a whole, one of its former generation shows decided to revive itself from the dead to show up with a major bang. After so many years of people forgetting about this show, or even giving up hopes for a sequel to occur for this show, Full Metal Panic! returned from the grave to show up with no one being ready at the time to see it again.

And to no surprise at the end of things, this show never came close read more
