I watched both Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero in one go; they're basically a main story and a prequel - the background premise (7 chosen Masters are able to summon 7 Servants who represent different heroes / legends throughout history to battle in order to obtain the Holy Grail, which grants a wish) is really interesting. I mean, it's not super uncommon, as it happens with a lot of anime (Dragonball, Fushigi Yuugi... so many anime where people fight just to obtain a wish). It's a good premise.
However, overall, I can see why Fate/Zero has a much higher score than Fate/Stay Night. A show's worth is read more

I watched both Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero in one go; they're basically a main story and a prequel and so I'll list the good and the bad - the good: the background premise (7 chosen Masters are able to summon 7 Servants who represent different heroes / legends throughout history to battle in order to obtain the Holy Grail, which grants a wish) is really interesting.

Unfortunately, a show is only as good read more

Two things that never happen: I never rate anything a pure 10, and I never cry at anime (a few scenes I'll tear up here and there, but not full on cry where I need a tissue). I hear constantly how this anime made people cry but I didn't take it seriously (it was always looped in with the other shows that supposedly make people cry like Clannad or Your Lie in April, both which made me kinda roll my eyes), and that was a mistake. The show is masterful because there are multiple reasons to cry. War is always tragic and this show portrays read more

LOL nobody can say, with a straight face, that they enjoyed this show for the story. I only really like it because the main voice actor (Fukuyama Jun) was one of my ultimate favorites at the time, and also because the opening theme song was kind of a guilty pleasure for me (it's a cute ass song, not gonna lie). But wow.... seriously, anime will anthromorphize anything these days. This one is about soda cans. Because they're so important to Japan and society of course. Seriously, the part that made me burst out laughing was when Melon (the (surprise) melon flavored soda) explained the war read more

It's a decent show - like the older version of Sword Art Online, kind of? I think for a show to come out that time with this plot is pretty impressive and creative (although I keep finding more plots and stories with similar backgrounds). The soundtrack is Yuki Kajiura so you KNOW it's great, but the downside are the characters. The main character is annoying and I feel like it was hard for me to keep up with plot because I couldn't understand what he was thinking / doing. Everyone else was kind of okay; Bear and Mimiru I didn't feel much about but they read more

It's a very feel-good type anime; to be honest my review might be biased because everyone's answer about this anime was "I couldn't stop sobbing" or "I cried so hard at the end" so by the time I got around to watching it, as soon as I saw the main girl I knew "Oh yeah, it's not looking good for you".
I will say, I think it does a good job of showing the main character struggling to overcome his mental break and the guilt he feels for how he treated his mother, and the soundtrack? I mean obviously gorgeous, both the opening and the classical read more

"The final of the three, is a flashback of how the queen met Naoya and how they conceived Asuha ten years prior to the events in the anime." Oh yes... let's glorify some p*dophilia and add some sparkles to make it kawaii!
I watched the original show and thought it couldn't get any worse (loved the music, the art, and the characters themselves, but the story... no). This came out and wow, I have been proven wrong. It could get worse because WTF. The main show is about a 10-year-old being pressured to blow a 23-year-old, and now this OVA shows

I watched this anime only because I heard the ED on an anime playlist and fell absolutely in love with it. The story sounded terrible but it's only 12 episodes long so I figured why not. Let's start with the good points; like I mentioned, that soundtrack. The ending song should be up there in anime karaoke, it is truly one of the sweetest, loveliest songs I've ever heard. Also, strangely enough, I actually didn't hate any of the characters. Most of the time, I usually end up disliking a character and I ESPECIALLY CANNOT STAND TSUNDERES. Particularly Kugimiya Rie-voiced tsunderes (she's great but her read more

You know what - the art style isn't for me, the story is kind of complicated and confusing to follow, some of the characters make you go o.O but goddamn... still can't deny this was a good show. It kind of gives off Giving Tree vibes, with a heartbreakingly tragic adult story cleverly clothed in child-like media. It's strange but even the most graphic scenes like the sex and violence still look colorful and funky and fun. It gives off kind of early 2000s Cartoon Network vibes with a really adult story-line. Really recommend, it's only 12 episodes so it's quick but really deep.

I mean... I get the hype. The only reason I find it worth it, however, is that I love that the female characters are written pretty decently in this show. My problem with most action anime is that the female characters are either weak and cute or powerful tsunderes. I'm glad to see there are many opportunities for both powerful and cute characters in this show. I enjoyed that for starters; that aside, the show itself is just good. I like that it has that kind of sad background (main character loses his family) but it doesn't drag it on for 200+ episodes (looking at read more
