I won’t use any arbitrary numbers for the duration of this review. Senran Kagura is a series I picked up from a trailer I watched for Senran Kagura: Burst and let me tell you, I was just so fascinated. A fighting game where we pit scantily clad high school girls against one another and fight to destroy the other girls’ clothing? Count me in. WHY AREN’T MORE DEVS DOING THIS!? Then I realized there was an anime and manga series that fleshes out the legend of this mysterious series’ origins. Then it donned on me that this is not something I’d enjoy. I’m really at read more

I’m not going to use arbitrary numbers since that’s not going to help you understand what I just watched. Well, this is it. The end of this week long journey. Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (or Oreimo [or My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute])’s final 3 episodes. Everyone lost their god damned minds, but in the end logic and reason prevailed in this tale of weird situations and awkward misunderstandings. I was near the end of my rope when I thought all hope was lost, but in the end it wrapped up the series the best way it could. Setting read more

I’m avoiding arbitrary numbers since that isn’t helpful in explaining what I just watched. I started myself down a path I’m not too upset about, because I feel like the reward was every bit as satisfying as the ride itself. Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (or Oreimo [or My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute]) is a series full of misconceptions and misdirection which would explain why people write it off as dumb, fetish-y, siscon garbage and they’d be right to anyone who accepts an opinion as fact before watching a series. Now I’m not saying that Oreimo’s second season does read more

I’m not going to use arbitrary numbers since that’s not going to help you understand what I just watched. These episodes are the true ending of Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (or Oreimo [or My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute]), so it goes without saying that you need to watch the first season of the show in order to understand them. Now it’s hard for me to quantify this series on a scale of whether I like it or don’t like it (I really like it), because it’s just so damn charming and I get the feeling it shouldn’t be. read more

I’m avoiding arbitrary numbers since that isn’t helpful in explaining what I just watched. I’m sure we’ve all seen it, pictures of an orange haired, blue-eyed girl with rosy cheeks with the obligatory “worst girl” stamped to it. And that’s fine, we’re all entitled to our tastes (unfounded though they may be), because that’s what makes this community what it is for better or for worse. Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (or Oreimo [or My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute]) is a series I was just so curious about due to the amount of “Kirino is a shit” posts I’d read more

I’m going to avoid arbitrary numbers, because they only distract you from understanding what I’m saying. Suisei no Gargantia (Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet is too damn long) is a series I wish I’d have picked up during its season. You like mechs? It’s got that. You like skimpily dressed underage girls? It’s got that too. You like the open sea? Well, you're in luck! On the surface I couldn’t seem to find any redeeming qualities about it and I put it down for a couple months. CG in mecha anime is something I’ve grown to hate (having grown up watching mecha anime) and it read more

I’m going to avoid arbitrary numbers since that doesn’t help you understand what I watched or what I’m trying to say. Genocyber is a series I picked up from a list of anime (I don’t remember where) and usually when I go digging for obscure series I’m met with mixed feelings. Often times this digging will lead to hidden gems that I get a chance to appreciate now that I’m an adult. Genocyber isn’t really a hidden gem so much as it’s a fossilized turd. And by that I mean it aged poorly and I’m not too sure if there was any meaning buried in read more

I’m not going to use any arbitrary numbers because that won’t provide an accurate representation of what I just watched. One thing I’d advise before ever picking this title up is be sure you watched the original Rurouni Kenshin series prior. If you don’t you might be completely undone before you get to some of the juicier bits of this two part series. For everyone whose unaware of the story surrounding the New Kyoto Arc in Kenshin these films(?) are hard to follow and don’t convey enough of what made the original run of the arc so satisfying.

Now I’m not going to waste time arguing read more

I’m not going to use any arbitrary numbers because that won’t provide an accurate representation of what I just watched. Did you ever watch Boku no Pico and think to yourself: “this would be better with girls and superpowers.” Well, here you go; here’s Kuttsukiboshi in its entire implied sexual deviancy. This was probably the weirdest sexual adventure I went on due to the gratuitous amount of “Did you just say/do that..?” moments I felt during the course of this two episode odyssey (and because my roommate was sitting behind me). Now I’m not saying this to make fun of the series, because it’s not read more

For starters I'm going to avoid throwing in arbitrary numbers, because that won't help in explaining what it was I just watched. Now for those of you out there that are veteran anime consumers you're probably aware of common themes and cliches that often get used within anime as a medium of artistic expression. I will say that Rolling Girls does an incredible job at utilizing these as both a means to progress the story, but also as a way to incorporate humor into what I can call the most artistically sound anime of 2015 (thus far and in my own personal opinion so don't read more
