Omoigumo (Anime) add
A beautiful piece of work; that's how A Reflection of One's Mind should be described. The art style, fluidity of the animation, and background music succeeded in creating a wonderful atmosphere, one that is relaxing, yet full of emotion.

A tale that doesn't need any words to be understood, told in a silent narrative driven by the calming, clear music of Debussy; the characters are shaped with the help of facial expressions, body language, and actions, and it works! Though, don't expect a deep dive into the characters' psyche or anything like that, since this is a 5-minute short.

The story itself is pretty generic, but ...

Disclaimer: I don't hate Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie. I just don't think it's a good anime overall.

What's up with their eyes?

No, but seriously, this is one of the weirdest eye designs I have ever seen in anime. It actually looks good from some angles, but most of the time it's rather creepy. The blonde girl literally has dead fish eyes. And it looks horrible.

Since I see people that seem to be saying that the ratings of this show are low from a lot of watchers because "the expectations were too high", " everyone thought this will be Dress-Up Darling 2", and "yall just watch ...

Genjuu no Seiza is good. Great, even. At least when it comes to the story; the characters, on the other hand… could use some more work.

As a backstory, the most notable aspect is probably its author, namely the same person that wrote & illustrated Petshop of Horrors. Just like in its predecessor, the art remains rich and consistent, yet not necessarily distinctive. Genjuu no Seiza even features the main character from Petshop of Horrors in some chapters (though as an episodic character), evoking a vague feeling of nostalgia.

Now for the story… Matsuri Akino did a great job on this one. The premise itself is intriguing, ...

Ah… it happened again. Yet another good anime ruined by its last episodes. What can I even say? It is a shame indeed.

Heroine Tarumono! is about a boyish, straightforward girl that goes to the city to pursue her dream, track and field. It just so happens that two of her classmates are actually a very popular idol group, LIPXLIP. She doesn't even know them, as she isn't interested in idols; but she needs money, so when she sees some agency's hiring announcement, she immediately applies for the post. Turns out, it was a recruitment for the manager-in-training for LIPXLIP! And, surprisingly, she was hired, due ...

Look, the manga is good. The adaptation, though… could have been better. And not only because of the obvious, ugly CGI from the latest episodes.

"The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs" is centered around Leon, the ultimate asshole that was reincarnated in his sister's dating sim game. Luckily for him, he's just a mob character, so he doesn't have to deal with the male harem of the game, which he hates; after all, they are just a bunch of useless and utterly annoying pretty boys. So he thought; yet, he is forced to go to the nobles' academy from the game, so he ...

This is the first time in my life I have watched something so dreadful, so energy-draining, so fucking-with-my-mind in the worst way possible. Actually… never mind, Nami exists. Even so, worse than Sayuri, Jesus Christ. This is the first time I have felt the need to rate an "anime" with a negative number, though. -1(00) would be great. The repetitive track was fucking with my mind. The ending was the cherry on top, shit. I wanna die. Or go back in time and kms before watching this.

And MAL won't let me post this review cus it's too short, huh. I don't wanna think anymore ...

Disclaimer: sexual assault, a bit of bullying.

I foolishly started reading Sorairo Girlfriend hoping it wasn't gonna be as bad and boring as Ibara no Namida (another yuri manga by Rikachi, with one of the side characters of SG as the main character). Sadly, it was the same pattern, only with slightly different characters and sweeter story.

The biggest problems were probably the pacing of the story and the predictibility of it. The drama doesn't fit in that well either, mostly because of the already mentioned flaws. It just feels cheap and rushed, and the bullying segments don't make any sense (one day Juli's desk is covered ...

note: spoiler-free review

“Nina the Starry Bride” is a hidden gem that I stumbled upon almost by mistake; and what a fortunate mistake it was! It is one of the best josei/shoujo fantasy manga I have ever come across. It does seem criminally underrated, though; so here I am with a review, to make it justice!

STORY - 10

Nina is a girl that lives with her family, like any other girl her age. Well, except for the fact that her “family” consists only of two poor children, which she calls her “brothers”. Their sole chance to survive is to steal— be it jewelry ...

I've seen that people giving this show higher ratings tend to think its low overall ratings come from it appealing to a specific audience only, an while I do agree it's not for the big masses, that's definitely not the actual reason (the current rating is 6.46). Bungou to Alchemist has some big, too hard to ignore flaws.

The story has potential, and I would have loved to see how the biggest classics in Japanase literature fight for its existence, but the execution was just horrific. I don't think the writers knew from the start where the whole plot is going at all. Aside that, they ...

The art and characters are so bad that it's funny, not gonna lie. It makes me cringe so much. And the story seems to resume at sex. Yet for a hentai wannabe, it's pretty damn bad.

Nothing to say, fantasy hentai wanabe.

"Sex! Sex! Sex! Please teacher Lila, I can't hold it in anymore!"
"It doesn't matter that I'm not a good soldier teacher Lila, I'm good at sex, give me sex!"
