Welcome to another Robert's Too Late Reviews! Today we're working from the subbed version. Let me say right off, if explosions or fights or violence is your cup of tea, then move on, you will find nothing to like here. If you do like slice-of-life shows, cute girls doing cute things, and don't mind the stereotypical episode format, you might just have a good time! Let's see if we should change the channel.

It's hard to really rank a slice-of-life show for story since most of it is usually episodic events happening about everyday life, and there's not usually an overarching theme. A-Channel fits read more

Welcome to Robert's Too Late Reviews! Today we're going to be going over the dubbed version of this title, and we will be including the 4 episode 'sequel' as part of our review. For once I'm going to say that the synopsis is a bit lacking and you should give a look over the reviews written before deciding. This of course is a stupid statement for if you didn't, you wouldn't see this. Oh well, we all have our moments right? Let's break down the heart connections in this title.

Welcome to another installment of Robert's Too Late Reviews! I'm throwing down with the sub version today. I just adore music, I learned to play simple instruments as a young child, and moved on to full brass in my high school years. As a player and a listener I adore the tuba and the trumpet, and so when I saw an anime about a bugler (which is a primitive trumpet) I *knew* I had to see it, and boy am I glad I did! Let's check out what song the sky is singing!

In the vein of further disclosure, I love nearly all kinds of read more

Welcome to another Robert's Too Late Reviews! Today we're working over the subbed version of Isshuukan Friends. We have a charming little series here, with a few issues that truly keep it from rising to the heights it might have otherwise achieved. Let's take it from the top.

Story: 8
I'm not saying I disliked the series at all, in fact I found it quite charming. There is, however, one MAJOR flaw that must be addressed as it is the focal point of the entire show, all the way down to what the series is called, that being the female lead's amnesia. The condition itself can read more

Robert's Too Late Reviews sliding in for another installment! Believe it or not, but we're actually running off the subbed version this time! I know, I was as surprised as you are! Anyway, if you've seen much of my reviews you probably know that romance is totally my jam, and True Tears doesn't disappoint! Barring a few cliches, we have an overall kickass ride. Let's see if our wings will get us off the ground.

Story: 8
The story is your somewhat traditional romance, complete with some hefty twists and turns, some are pretty easy to read, but others are a bit more surprising when they read more

Welcome to another RTLR review! Dub is our poison as always. I gotta man up and admit that I am in no way an 'elitist' when it comes to anime, at least I don't think I am. I make no bones about watching harem and ecchi titles along with more 'emotionally mature' fare. This time tho, with Cat Planet Cuties, we have a whole lot of nothing, tired tropes, and nonsensical elements that all come together and make for a strangely entertaining series. Straight up, if fan service doesn't do it for you, then by all means consider the overall score a 1. If you read more

Robert's Too Late reviews arriving fashionably late yet again. Today's series is a fascinating one, as though it might be titled "Gunslinger Girl" the crux of the story does not revolve around gunplay. Yes there is some shootouts, but it's not an action packed fest. This, however, enhances the viewing experience from my point of view. As always, we're looking at the dubbed version here. Let's tear this gun down and see what we have.

Story: 8
The girls in the show are all recruited through some terrible means. They are all near death when the government agency steps in and takes over. Having the parents read more

Welcome to Robert's Too Late Reviews! Today we're running the dubbed version as always. When I found this title I was on the prowl for something nice and romantic, and overall I was quite satisfied by what I saw. There are some issues that keep this series from a higher rank, but they aren't overly intrusive. Let's see if we can't fall off this bridge.

Story: 8
This is quite the romance title, including all the usual trappings of lovelorn youngsters, agonizing misunderstandings, and uncertain feelings. If this kind of dramatic play isn't your thing, move along for sure. But for those that stay, there's read more

Hi. Welcome to another round of Robert's Too Late Reviews! Today as usual we are working the dub version. I recently reviewed Chivalry of a Failed Knight, and bemoaned repeatedly the whole 'overpowered meek and humble hero', well there is NONE of that to be had here! That and we are thrown some twists at the ending which I found appealing as well. Let's throw down this show and see what we've got going!

The story isn't anything to write home about. Little boy gets zaps into another world, lives there his whole childhood, gains superpowers and then returns. Not all that unusual there. His kicker, read more

Welcome to Robert's Too Late Reviews! Dub version as usual. Today's title is interesting in it's fairly aggressive attempts to seemingly be a middling series. Now many people consider a '6' to be an abysmal score, but by label it is 'fine'. This series isn't bad, its just mediocre, and comes across bland and stereotypical. Let's go ahead!

Story: 6
The biggest problem for the story from my side of things is that it seems to take titles, say such as Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, and use their formulas with only minor tweaking. It's like the writers said 'hey lets make a ultra powerful main character read more
