Please note, this review has some mild spoilers for episode one, but nothing in major detail.

I’m going to give this the benefit of the doubt when it comes to my transgressions with this show because the animation, story and majority of the characters are all definitely stand out. The entire show and the series are all stand out in their own way and hold out in many different forms - this is an anime for the ages, and will remain popular for quite a long time, even now, almost ten years after its anime debut. I will not deny that or the major amount of ...

WiSH VOYAGE (Anime) add
Wish Voyage is a short music video released from the fictional idol group IDOLISH7. It’s nothing ground-breaking, earth shattering or anything of the like, however, I thought I’d pause to write a review about this AMV.

I am not really one for fictional groups as a whole - I find most of them are tacky, looking to profit off of specific crazes, with limited budget for animation and etc that just makes them have a strange vibe or look, or try to allow the hot anime characters to distract from the poor music, and similar.

This one, however, I found I heavily enjoyed. It was ...

Yowamushi Pedal: Special Ride is one of those OVAs where you expect it to be pure ridiculous boring filler for the OVA - and, to a degree, this would be correct. It's a filler of Onoda and Makishima bonding - on Makishima’s decision. It leads to Onoda’s otaku ways almost turning Makishima off of him entirely and wanting to leave, only for the OVA to take us on a new journey across the bike training path.

For an OVA, there isn’t really anything special about it - it’s the same basic premise. Some filler, some laughs, nothing that really aids the plot - it’s essentially ...

It's a little hard to rate AkaKill! Theater due to the varying nature of each one minute short, however, I can say, I really did not enjoy this.

Whilst crude humour is normally found throughout a lot of these different shorts, and whilst I'm not normally one to mark a show down for the odd joke here and there - AkaKill! Theater has the script writing of a bored author opening a book of terrible crude jokes, picking 18, laying out a story line for them and then having a small handful of actually good content in between.

I think there was maybe four or ...

Look, Midori is not going to be for everyone - or barely anyone in the long run of all anime fans out there. It's an ero-guro, chilling shock-horror of a film/manga. Most people are aware of this anime only due to the fact it was banned a while back in Japan. I watched this as, for some reason, it's a MAL Badges unlockable and I decided to give it a shot.

And frankly, this pales a lot in comparison to the cult whispering legends about this film. It's pretty weak; it relies almost entirely on the shock horror aspect of the source material, with abuse and ...

Mixed Feelings
After finishing High-Rise Invasion, I have a lot of mixed feelings.

The plot itself is actually pretty good and I found myself extremely intrigued by it. The Masks were all stunning, with most of them based on horror tropes that were pretty easily identifiable, and I enjoyed the aspect of it. The idea of the dystopian world was intriguing and, for me, brand new and I really enjoyed it. I found a majority of the characters relatable in a way and found myself binge watching it with ease. The psychological horror was very apt, and although it pulled from some overused tropes, it was still enjoyable. ...

Chargeman Ken.... Oh, Chargeman Ken. Probably one of the few anime everyone can cohesively say is the worst anime ever made. But oh, that's the charm of the entire anime.

I first discovered Chargeman Ken by this video by Kenny Lauderdale that a friend sent to me — https://youtu.be/uczvIKDcnS4 (this is not sponsored in any way) — and I watched this in disbelief. Surely there can't be an anime as bad as Kenny's saying. It can't be as lazy, thrown together and hash tag as anyone is saying in the comments. It just couldn't be.

So I went with a few episodes Kenny highlighted in the video ...

I ended up stumbling upon this as a dare with some friends. From the generation who found it funny to prank and dare one another to watch Boku no Pico, it's pretty much no surprise that when we met up again, we ended up daring each other to watch yet more hentai.

There isn't really much to say about this series. It's exactly what it says on the tin. Rape gets legalized. As a hentai, I've seen quite a few around over the years and to be honest, it's pretty bland. It exists purely to fuel the ideal of rape fantasies with a terrible script, pretty ...

Yami Shibai 8 (Anime) add
Oh where, oh where do I begin with Yami Shibai season 8. I've been following this anime since I found it during season 6 and I've binged through it quite a few times and I'm just so disappointed.

The first 3 seasons are astounding, truly something that made me shiver and look over my shoulder and now.... Season 8 is the weak, heat tinted wind that blows through the garden on an extremely hot day and merely taunts you with the expectation of coolness whilst slowly cooking you faster.

I didn't expect too much from this season — since season 4, Yami Shibai has been slowly declining ...

As a massive fan of Takashi Miike, I was surprised I hadn't ever heard of the manga for One Missed Call. Being one of my first Miike movies, I've always had a small soft spot for the franchise, so upon finding the manga series, I immediately rushed into it.

My average manga score was finally starting to increase and look better, sigh.

This was pretty much an insult to Takashi Miike's franchise. An insult is pretty much putting it nicely.

The artwork just seemed lazy with two of the characters in the second volume looking so similar you couldn't tell them apart. The story followed the film ...
