The synopsis for Caucus Race was slightly misleading. I expected to get the same story as Pandora Hearts seen from different characters' perspectives. However, this new addition to the story was lovely as well. Story wise, there is nothing that interferes with the story in the manga, but the light novel highlights the characters very well and made me appreciate them more.

Caucus Race is a compilation of mini stories that take place with the various characters of Pandora Hearts. From Alice wanting to eat meat, to Elliot and Oz constantly bickering over their favorite characters in novels, and Gilbert being over-protective with Oz while also read more

Given (Anime) add (All reviews)
I'm a straight male who likes this anime, and I also do not support LGBT, so I think this anime can be accessible to anyone and shouldn't be dismissed for its BL. Disregarding this factor, Given is a really good show.

I'm no expert on this but I know that Yaoi anime tend to focus on the appeal to the audience more than the actual romance, but Given's romance was very realistic and relatable. I found myself able to be in both couple's shoes. Given really takes a new approach to romance; instead of it being the happy world of two people, it depicts its downsides read more

One thing I've recently noticed about myself is that I am not a big fan of Sci-Fi (even though my favorite anime is Sci-Fi), but I am a big fan of some sub genres of that genre, and mecha is not one of them. Astra Lost In Space is one of the Sci-Fi shows that I loved and am glad to have caught up on when I missed its weekly episodes.

The story is simple as the title says, a bunch of people are lost in space. Their main goal is to get back to their planet. Along the journey, lots of revelations take place. The read more

I expected to like this show, but given how very different its arcs were, it manages to do good on some, and just outright disappoint on others. I'll try to cover most of my issues and what I liked without going too much into spoilers.

The story takes place in a world where people cannot be born, nor can die. Given how unique the setting is, it's bound to be interesting, but they immediately raise a problem to it. Characters can still die, but they live on as "undead" until buried by gravekeepers. The issue here is there is no remarkable difference between the living and read more

I'm not a fan of the sports genre, I may be missing out on some treats, but I'm not interested in cliche games where the main character always wins. I came across Megalo Box and it proved me wrong, so I thought why not give this a try? It might impress me too... but it didn't.

The story is about a tournament in which challengers play against each other. I guess that's it, that's the most of the story. There's also the unnecessary drama which is also criticized by its fans, but if you dislike the drama, then what do you exactly like about the show? read more

All I see is hypocrites praising this show for being entertaining while dissing SAO for the exact same reasons, whereas SAO has no harem nor ecchi in its genres but this show does (at least, the LN of it does). That is not to say I dislike the show, I like it, but I still can't understand how people like this and dislike SAO. SAO is not my topic now so I'll just get into the review.

The story is not anything mindblowing, but I do not necessarily dislike it. MC gets transferred to another world, battles some monsters, saves some girls, meets a loli demon. read more

All I see on MAL is people praising the hell out of this anime, or hating the shit out of how overrated it is. I'm just here to give my opinion as someone who is in between, leaning more towards liking the show because I can appreciate the effort put into building this galactic universe.

It's hard to exactly sum up what LOTGH is about. It starts off as the Empire and the Alliance battle each other and take control of one another's property. The build up for Iserlohn was good and enjoyable, and judging by how Iserlohn has an important role in the series, the read more

Nanbaka (Anime) add (All reviews)
It's difficult to make a comedy series, mainly because sense of humor is subjective. Nanbaka's comedy was barely noticeable, and even if it was there, it wasn't really funny. But personally, the action and drama parts were better written than the comedy.

The story is mainly as the synopsis says. There's no story progression as such, and there's just a tournament arc filled with games at the beginning, mostly games where comedy can be introduced in. The action part was also mixed in there, the fights were well done, and the flashy artstyle did not interfere. The comedy part was mainly in the first half of read more

The review contains spoilers


While waiting for someone to write a positive review about this, I thought I'd wake up because that won't happen, so I guess I should do it myself. I find 7 to be above average, not something I'd recommend, but it's good compared to the hate this show is getting, and I actually like it. So there may be spoilers because no one cares about a show with this low of a rating, right?

The story with its mysteries and use of time travel is stunning, it's all connected and covers up most of its plot-holes (not really all though). The way read more
