Interesting anime about a boy who wants to be a girl and a girl who wants to be a boy, both in a love triangle including a girl with an attitude. They start high school. First it goes on about a play involving gender change.

The theme about wanting to be a girl is treated pretty seriously. It is not only a story about a boy who wants to be a girl, but about a person who is different from the rest and in a certain way, better than them too. Obviously it is not excerpt of problems. Most of them come from the prejudice that read more

This anime takes place in a city where, despite being full of people who have superpowers, bullying takes place as an everyday matter. If there's a lonely girl, a gang of punks will surround her for harassment duty. If two people collide, one will try to beat the crap out of the other. This will happen without aggressors thinking about the possibility of being facing a serious threat.

I would have been interesting to see more of how this world works. I don't know how espers train, level up or discover their own powers. Instead, I know how they... have fun. Hum.

There's a big amount of read more

Watamote goes about a lonely girl who wants to become popular or, more specifically, close to others.

There's mostly one character here who wanders around thinking about what happens to her. Motoko Kuroki is one of the strangest characters I've ever seen.

This makes the show very special. It does not revolt around a proper story but a series of tries and crazy gags. The good thing is that most of this absurd situations have never be seen.

Pace gets slower at summer break but keeps being interesting.

The main character is very good made. Motoko happens to be a lovely character who can get happy about saying a read more

This is a serious review for a serious matter.

Senran Kagura shows a five girl ninja school against another school (this one evil). You will learn a lot about ninjas.

Ninjas can defy physics: when they are hanging down, their breasts hang, but their skirts don't. Strange, as they like to show her underwear whenever possible. Also, when hanging with a water bucket on each hand they can still somehow shake hands with a companion. Uh?

Real ninjas resemble magical girls, and some armor transformations have even less cloth that the usual school uniform. I cannot stop staring at Katsuragi's... armor.

Even with magical girl transformations, there is no read more

This was better than I expected. The premise on this series is battles between groups of tanks as an after school club. In this crazy world, this is treated just as another sport which contributes somewhat to feminity. (I wonder what the hell would boys do, given the proper atention by the series: ¿kill each other?, ¿learn to cook?).

Art gets pretty interesting when tanks are battling.

All related to tanks is ok and even seems well documented, but the slice of life with stribes on the girls seems to pale a bit in comparison. Take for instance a moment at episode two or three when the read more

This anime begins being very interesting, as the protagonist seems to be a pervert with little shame. But this soon leaves place to other matters, with the series involving some all-mighty cat statues which grant wishes. One would think that with anything having the chance to become possible, things will become serious at any moment. Well, they don't. The series mostly involves a lot of monotonous slice of life.

Characters seem very weak. One extremely big error is to deprive the feminine protagonist of her emotions at the first episode. This is not cute at all, it's as depriving Goku of becoming a super saiyan. One read more

Well, this is not AnoHanna.

There's not enough story for twelve episodes. Things start out ok but they get boring after the characters and setting are presented. The two beach episodes could easily be dropped and the only two events that seem to happen in them would fit elsewere. There's even a festival with yukatas and impossible-to-catch fishes which do not add very much to all.

Things can get a bit tiring as you see that there are a number of scenes which are telling you the same continuously. Something was told to me four times at the beginning of episode eleven.

Characters are pretty plain appart from read more
