This was exactly what I was looking for. I wish I’d seen this when I was 11 or 12. As an American, a raunchy female led sitcom is a rarity. One set in high school is unheard of. It’s raunchy yet not in your face lewd (a la Seven mortal Sins). It breaks the mold of the most popular, sought after, athletic, highly intelligent, student council president being the central character. I humanizes the characters by grounding them in the reality that they are not school idols. It’s funny and touching, but not preachy. No life lessons learned, no PSA at the end. I should read more

So I was looking for something along the lines of "hot chicks with swords" and stumbled upon Blade & Soul. I wasn’t disappointed. The action was clever and exciting. The characters were well thought out and interesting. The visuals were a treat to look at. It delivered what it offered and I’m glad I watched it. But I do have one complaint I wish to address to pad this review. The character of Hazuki is poor designed and overused to virtually no effect. I feel the show could’ve done without her. Some may dislike this show because of all the T & A and that’s read more

I remember watching this on VHS from Streamline, and it's with enthusiastic nostalgia I give this a five out of five. The movies is a rather abrupt summation of the series, which is adapted from a long running manga. The story focuses on Ken as he searches post apocalyptic (every anime was post apocalyptic back then) for Julia, his woman, taken by Shin his best friend and the Fist of the South Star. To be honest it's a little dated but has a motion picture budget so it actually looks great. Some of the more graphic deaths are blurred to tone it down, I hate read more

IT'S NOT ABOUT SWIMMING! despite what one would glean from the title and picture. What it is about is a tale of love, familial obligation and being bound by the past. The characters are interesting and diverse and the story is intriguing. It' hard to praise this anime without giving too much away, but the animation is smooth and fluid, but that's to be expected from an anime not dependent on action scenes. But it's a touching love story that's both tragic and seems genuine. If this is your sort of genre (it's not mine though I finished it) I recommend watching it. HOWEVER, there read more

I wish I'd watched this sooner, rather than later. I love the world that they live in and watching them explore it, and how we're on that journey with them. There's a lot to explain and not enough time per episode to explain it, which is great, because it rationalizes why the story is so long. The characters are diverse and interesting but also not cliched. Killua and Leorio were my favourite characters because they had the best character motivations. It has battles both mental and physical and sometimes both, battles are far more thrilling when there's a mental component as well; rather he with read more

My brother recommended this to me and it didn’t disappoint. I loved the characters, their designs, and the world built for them to live in. I loved the “coed” nature of the show as no one is the damsel in distress needing to be saved by the hero every episode. The action is tense and generates real emotion from the viewer. I also enjoy the military strategy employed in the course of this series. One thing to note; i don’t think I could’ve watched this dubbed. It seems like a headache to listen to these names rather than read & hear them. My only real read more

Let me start off by saying I loathe censorship in all it’s forms; but I also know this isn’t on Crunchyroll. But I can’t help but deduct a point for it, is my nature. Next I want to also knock off a point because this one shall offend a certain percentage of the population. And that’s why I’m giving it a favorable review. The characters are unique and...healthy and the show delivers on what it offers. If one liked shows like FREEZING, MAKEN-KI or SEKIREI then you are in for a treat. It’s better than all three of those shows! It tells a better story read more

Well I struggle to write this review because I have no strong feelings one way or the other about Yokuwakaru Gendai Maho. It's the most median I've seen in awhile. It's seems like it contains every vicious stereotype about anime in it, but that's what some people love about anime. On one hand it's a cutesy magical girl anime about friendship and fan service. on the negative It's a cutesy magical girl anime about friendship and fan service! So if those are words you abhor in your anime, run, run away now! But if any of those words get your attention; prepare for read more

At first glance it appears to be just another ecchi show focusing on breasts. And it pretty much is. There's very little depth to it, and that's fine.
I don't mean to go on a rant here but some people seem to be under the impression that every EVERY anime has to be thought provoking and meaningful. And if you're of a similar mind then avoid Ladies Versus Butlers like the plague.
But if you understand that context and intent define an anime AND aren't opposed to this sort of material, then you've got a winner here! The girls are cute, jiggly and diverse and it's read more

Trials and tribulations of the modern otaku redux
Love Tyrant is one of those anime that’s all over the place for me. On one hand it’s a parody of all too familiar character tropes. That I loved because then the story had to be tight unify these ridiculous elements. And in those episodes I saw the appeal of the show and understood why it was made. It was funny, the action was intense, and the drama was tense. Not to mention sexy at times. On the other hand, it’s a parody so it runs the clichés pretty hard. And when it does the plot and story read more
