I really enjoyed this season. It's been a couple of decades since I read the manga so it was great to revisit everything because I'd forgotten the details of how things ended lol But that didn't matter because the story is a classic for good reason and really held up decades later even though at times it was clearly a product of the 70's and 80's. Everyone's still kind of an a-hole but at the same time endearing none the less. The ending was true the characters and a little bonkers like Takashashi likes to make her comedy endings. It was a great revival project ...

The nice thing about Yuru Camp is it really does live up to its name. You're going to always have a nice, pleasant time of things and even when there is drama it's nothing too heavy or super serious, and season 3 of course lived up to that promise. It was nice to check in with the girls again and finish off the school year. It was fun to see the depictions of the bridges and other landmarks and cultural items. It's also fun to watch the girls grow and change from where they were in season 1. I had a good time watching it. ...

Dungeon Meshi (Anime) add
Delicious in Dungeon lives up to the hype. The characters are all engaging and strange. Their situation is compelling. The narrative is always coming up with creative ways to cook classic dungeon mythical creatures. But what makes this anime as good as it is is the fact that it digs deeper than that. Each character is in the dungeon and persists due to solid, personal reasons. They come together as a team and thrive as a team as well. I don't have any complaints with the anime at all, but the reason that I rated it an 8 instead of a 10 is because while ...

I cannot recommend this story enough. The characters were relatable and funny. The premise was a bit goofy but the goofiness really lent well to the story. The conclusion was on point and tonally sound too. The story is only six chapters but each chapter has excellent pacing and doesn't wander away from the point. The only reason this wasn't a 10/10 for me is because when I give something a 10/10 I've made a personal connection to it, and I just didn't with this story. That said, I wouldn't consider it a detractor because I still enjoyed it immensely. Maybe we'll get lucky and ...

This anime was super adorable and super short. I kind of wished that the actual episode content was a little longer. The titular baby shark had a cute personality and got into a lot of adventures that a child just old enough to go on their first errands might. It was fun to see the world building in the series and to use it as a means of listening to Japanese more than reading subtitles. I really enjoyed it and I'm glad that there will be more episodes in the future.

If you like anime like Goma-chan the baby seal and Chitose the penguin chick, ...

I have always liked the manga and it was great to see such a good anime adaptation of it. I never managed to get around to watching the movie so I was glad that the first half of the series was the original story. I also really enjoyed the addition of the Forest Land arc as the second half of the series. True to Toriyama's storytelling skills, the characters were engaging, funny, and felt fully realized. The back story lent to motivations and underscored actions. The ending was satisfying. I think that animating the story also helped it and made it more engaging than the ...

One of my problematic fave shounen is back with a sequel and honestly? I liked it. Tonally it fit with the previous series. The characters were easy to root for including Hana, who might annoy some viewers. It balanced darkness and comedy well. However, there were still the detriments from the original series to contend with like how it handles other cultures and underage relationships. The speed of the narrative also seemed a bit too fast in places and when the thirteenth episode finished, it felt like it wasn't the right stopping point for a first season and maybe a 24 - 26 episode first ...

Ruirui Senki (Manga) add
Ruirui Senki (Shadow Eliminators) started out really promising. The characters were easy to root for and likable. The plot was intriguing. The art was inviting. Then, about half way through something went terribly horrible wrong, and that's why I would rate this a 4.5/10 if we had half ratings. As we gained more world building and the character list expanded, things became confusing and convoluted. Then, as the manga entered a clear going to get axed speed run of plot points, its flaws became magnified to the point it was extremely difficult to follow what was happening and especially why it was happening. That's why ...

Two on Ice (Manga) add
Preliminary (28/31 chp)
If my review is marked as preliminary, I wrote it after reading the final chapter but MAL hadn't recognized the series as complete yet.

Two on Ice is one of those titles that comes along that really should never have been in Shounen Jump in the first place and that's part of why it did not survive. There was a lot to like about the manga. The characters were likable, easy to root for, and kind of weird. Choosing pairs figure skating as the sport also kept the story fresh since it's not a sport overdone by the previous Jump titles. It was also fun ...

I really enjoyed this movie as I suspected I would when I saw the trailers years ago. The characters were likable and once I realized that it was like Alice in Wonderland where Wonderland kind of comes to the Alice figure, a lot of the strangeness of the story and the narrative felt intentional and increased my enjoyment of the narrative. I also liked how the story seemed to be a metaphor for growing up and becoming your own person as well. Both of these things were well done and I enjoyed them. The reason that the story isn't a 10/10 for me is mostly ...
