Seven Deadly Sins may look like yet another typical shounen action title in its focus on Meliodas and the titular gang of criminal outlaws. But the series does quite a bit to buck many of the typical cliches of many shounen action titles as the series focuses on Meliodas trying to find the old members of his group while protecting the princess of Leones, Elizabeth, from the corrupt Holy Knights.

The major thing that sticks out with Seven Deadly Sins is the careful balance it delivers with storytelling and action. Many shounen action titles get in the bad habit of focusing too much on their action read more

Perceptions can be deceiving when one sees promotional artwork for Strange Dawn. What may seem like a children's anime on the surface with its tiny human characters and the two high school girls whisked away to their world actually offers a surprising maturity that you don't typically find with many titles aimed at younger viewers. Focused on high school girls Eri and Yuko being whisked away to another world and worshiped by its inhabitants as gods, the two girls find themselves at the center of a war between two kingdoms with both sides desiring to exploit the status of the girls for their personal gain.

Naruto (Anime) add (All reviews)
Naruto is another in a long-line of popular shounen battle anime in its focus on the titular, simple-minded and obnoxious titular character desiring to become his village's leader through hard work and perseverance despite being a societal outcast because of being the human host for a demonic fox. Essentially, whatever typical shounen action anime tropes you can think of apply to much of what Naruto has to offer up from the titular character being a worst case of the simple-minded hero character than Dragon Ball's Goku, Sasuke being the revenge-seeking loner, Sakura the short-fused kunoichi with a single-minded interest in Sasuke, powerful sage Jiraiya being read more

If folks wonder where famous Gundam director Yoshiyuki Tomino got his infamous moniker of "Kill Em All", Zambot 3 is an obscure, yet notable, mecha title that first showcased Tomino's habit of creating high kill counts with mecha titles he would direct. A fairly standard entry in the "super robot" mecha genre at a glance, Zambot 3 focuses on the efforts of the Jin family who learn they are descendants of an alien race whose home planet was wiped out by the Gaizok race. Seeking to protect Earth from destruction, the Jins utilize the alien technology left behind by their ancestors to combat the Gaizok.

An animated adaptation of the decades-long medieval fantasy-adventure novel series, Guin Saga focuses on a leopard-headed man named Guin with no memories of his past and finds himself tasked with having to protect the young twin heirs in line of the throne to the kingdom of Parros, Remus and Rinda.

Guin Saga is a series that many older anime fans may reflect back to older medieval fantasy-adventure anime titles like Record of Lodoss War and Berserk with its storytelling and characters. For an older series, Guin Saga offers a rich world that it takes the time to explore dabbling into medieval elements, magic, and supernatural creatures. read more

Made by the same light novel writer behind Oreimo, Eromanga Sensei is another otaku-themed romantic comedy focused on teenage light novel writer Masamune Izumi trying to bond with his younger stepsister Sagiri, a hikikomori who he later learns is an acclaimed online illustrator named Eromanga Sensei known for drawing erotic female artwork.

Compared to Oreimo that at least believably explored public perception to life as an otaku, Eromanga Sensei opts to go into more conventional territory for its storytelling with all the cliches and pandering you can expect out of many modern anime titles. All the female characters are shown to be cute and following whatever read more

Note that to differentiate between the two Yuris for the remainder of this review, I will refer to the older Yuri as Yuri K and the younger Yuri as Yuri P.

Before I get into this review, I suppose I should cover the major element that read more

Ajin (Anime) add (All reviews)
Ajin focuses on our main lead, Kei Nagai, discovering he is an immortal being called an Ajin capable of resurrecting and regenerating from all damage once killed and manifesting shadowy-like forms called IBMs to fight on his behalf. This leads him to go on the run as once Ajin are discovered, they are captured and used for experimentation by the Japanese government. Also adding to this conflict is a terrorist organization made by Ajin who threaten to exploit the corruption of the Japanese government in retaliation for their treatment of Ajin.

Ajin is quite a bit of a mixed bag in quality, but I shall focus read more

his second Fist of the North Star series is meant to provide further fleshing out of Kenshiro and the Hokuto Shinken fighting style as it explores their origins as Kenshiro reunites with an older Lin and Bat to fend off a new enemy force, before having to rescue an abducted Lin from the Land of Shura, a country that encourages a brutal "survival of the fittest" mentality in raising male warriors.

On the one hand, this series runs at a more shorter length thus it avoids most of the major issues that plagued the first FotNS series with repetitious plot developments and having enough recap episodes. read more
