This review might have some spoilers so watch out.

What on earth brought me to watch the infamous “School Days”? Well, let’s just say, curiosity killed the cat; however, I’m not a cat but still… curiosity got me, BIG TIME. So, let’s just say I’m an anime fan who wants to watch something that I haven’t seen before. I searched the internet, read suggestions from social media sites, scanned reviews and so on. I have to tell you, I read some spoilers about a severed head and a major playboy named Makoto.

Well, the spoilers did not stop me; in fact it led me an interest read more

The reason why I did not place any spoilers for people to really step up their game and try watching Ao no Exorcist! You have to find out the mytery behind these phrases. Why this? Why that? How come?

I’m surprised by the fact that people would label Ao no Exorcist as a generic shounen anime. I couldn’t agree more with that but somehow it suits my taste, I don’t know why. What surprised me the most was the scores they gave here in MAL. Most were practically low or just average. Now let me tell you why I loved Blue read more

Suffice to say, I cannot explain Hunter X Hunter (2011) in just a few words. I’m a little late on the hype because I waited for the remake to finish before I could watch it as a whole; but anyway, right now, I’m on the verge of extracting my feelings to all of you after watching yet again a fantastic shounen anime.

I’ll just let you know that I’ve watched the first series before the remake and I might give off some short comparison between the two in some parts of my review (please do not get annoyed). However, that does not mean that read more

Let me get this straight, the reason why I watched this show is to actually view the old characters one last time *cries*. The fact that I miss Death the Kid, Black Star, Maka Albarn, Tsubaki Nakatsukasa, Patty and Liz Thompson, and of course, Soul E. Evans (I'll have you know I placed those names without consulting google and other websites. I memorized them!), immediately I was in cloud nine after receiving a notice that the spin-off of Soul Eater will be released. I actually kind of expected that Not! will not satisfy me but I didn't expect it to disappoint me this much.

The story read more

Technically, I've been waiting for this to happen --- a sequel to one of the most extraordinary anime I've come across with!Back in 2014, when they announced that Durarara!! will have a second season, my heart burst out of happiness. I got excited and updated myself every now and then for announcements and news about its release. The first season gave me a lot of jaw-dropping and amusement. Although it was really violent and quirky, the characters and the rearrangements of the plot kept me waiting for the next episode. I became addicted to it. It's more like my ice cream in anime style.

Without fail, this anime had me in stitches after hours and hours of watching all the episodes for 2 days. (sorry, I didn't finish it in one because of chores.)
Truth is, I saw a screenshot of this anime in my profile and I was interested in seeing it. It was a picture of mangas being piled up in a bag. Two of those mangas were my favorites; namely, Soul Eater and Fullmetal Alchemist. I got interested so I looked it up without viewing its synopsis and started seeing it. I was first in distraught when I found out that the first episode tackles read more

Oh God, this is going to take a long time to discuss.

I watched this because it was a recommendation of my best friend and it is also one of her favorite anime show.

You guys may be wondering.. why only a "6"?
Well, before we jump into conclusions, this review contains an opinion by me and my feelings towards this show so I can say what I think in a respectful manner as possible so please, it's not that I HATE this show... it's just I didn't find it satisfactory to my taste.

Why is that?

Let's start randomly..

Animation (8) - Soothing and attractive. The show's style read more

Nana (Anime) add (All reviews)
"I need your love, I'm a broken rose." - lyrics from the first opening.

The anime shows aired during 2007 - 2010 were usually the most phenomenal in my point of view. Shows today were lacking the deep sense of plot, enjoyment, drama and the whimsical world of comedy. These days it is hard to look for an anime that will make you re-watch when you have time and remember for a lifetime. Nana is one of those shows that is heart-wrenching, cheerful and life - changing.

Plot: Nana's story would actually be like soap operas in TV but better. You can see how the storyline read more

* To think that a slice of life anime would be my last review for this year *
Bear with me please, I know that this might be your fourth or nth time to encounter a One Week Friends review but hear me out :D.

After watching a few or maybe a lot of shounen anime with complex but amazing stories, my head got a little heavy dragging a lot of information so I decided to cool myself off and tried choosing a much more simple and not too confusing anime. Even before One Week Friends aired, I saw the lists of upcoming Spring Anime of read more

I know that watching Fullmetal Alchemist at a year like this wouldn't be right, considering that it was almost a decade since this show was aired. Setting that matter aside, watching a serie doesn't depend on how old or how recent it was made but the moment a person realize and say, "The hell with this, I'll watch Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Ghost Fighter, Hunter X Hunter etc. right now even though they're all super old!" they just go on and try viewing it. For everyone to know, I actually watched Brotherhood before this. Now, you may think how fucked up I am and read more
