Chivalry of a Failed Light Novel Adaptation.

I really want to like The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World. At heart it is of course, a juvenile, chuunibyou, male power fantasy anime adaptation of a *sigh* light novel, but unlike it’s contemporaries airing this winter (excluding Eminence of Shadow) it is somewhat charming.

I really like Ray White as a protagonist. Not only is he shredded as hell he is also unabashedly kind to everyone he meets no matter their social status or if they’re being a complete asshole to his face. Obviously this is a juvenile chuunibyou, male power fantasy light novel anime so ...

Becoming Mediocre In My 30’s.

Chillin' in My 30s after Getting Fired from the Demon King's Army is just another mediocre light novel anime adaption. That’s it.

From the Beast Tamer-like start of having our Mediocre Protagonist fired from his job that he’s good at in the mediocre Demon Kings army by a bunch of mediocre higher ups who will come to regret it later, to every other fantasy/isekai light novel anime you could think of having a love interest sporting plunging cleavage barely held in by tissue paper clothing, who immediately want’s to jump of the protagonists rod as soon as he said anything, there ...

Trials of Cold Patience - Northern Bore.

I was actually kinda looking forward to The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel - Northern War. I had heard good things about the game and hearing that the story would apparently be an original story taking place in it’s world got me excited. Unfortunately, if we’ve learn’t anything from Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer, if the animation is absolutely atrocious, it doesn’t matter how good your story is.

Okay, that’s not really a far comparison. Unlike Biscuit Hammer, Northern War’s animation wasn’t so bad that it made me ill just by looking at it. However it is ...

Dog Shit.

If you’ve ever needed a reason to argue why there needs to be a big, red “wipe out the human race of the face of this earth” reset button then My Life as Inukai-san's Dog serves as an excellent example as to why we need that button, and why we must push it immediately.

I don’t think you need me to explain to you why an anime about a harem protagonist transforming into a dog and sometimes performing soft-core acts of beastiality with his kidnapper who happens to be his crush, and sometimes the victims she invites over is fucking creepy.

I Spy With My Little Eye Something Beginning With, *sigh* Light Novel.

Coming off the back of 2022 where Spy x Family took the anime world and even the normal world by storm with it’s family comedy A plot underlined by a tense B plot about a secret cold war being played out by government spies so to avoid triggering another, actual war between two nations, Spy Classroom feels mediocre in comparison.

Pushing the cold war fought by spies aspect as the A plot, Spy Classroom is about a group of seven misfit, moé blob spies who were kicked out of their academies for presumingly being ...

Detroit: Become Idols.

Technoroid: Overmind is err… not good to say the least. A story about a four android roommates trying to become idols so they can pay the rent and the electricity bills could make for a fun comedy, but with it’s lacklustre animation and generically annoying characters, I found sitting through the first four episodes very difficult.

That’s not to say that you shouldn’t watch the first episode, in fact you should. The 180 it does at the end might be one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while. I’m not going to spoil that particular moment, but I does set ...

The Rising of the Guy Who Was Kicked Out From His Party and Fantasy Light Novel Things Happen, Who Cares?

Ningen Fushin: Adventurers Who Don't Believe in Humanity Will Save the World is a concoction of tropes and scenarios from all the mediocre *sigh* Light Novel isekai/ fantasy anime you could think of and have probably seen before.

You’ve got the Beast Tamer-like main guy who was kicked out of his party yet, and I’m going to take an educated guess here, they’ll probably regret doing so because it turns out he’s good at his job. You’ve got the Arifureta subplot played out by a dragon ...

Renai Flops (Anime) add
Mixed Feelings
Doki Doki Harem Club.

So… I’ve been trying to think for a long time how to go about reviewing Love Flops. There is so much I want to say about it. SO.MUCH. At the same time, I don’t think it’s fair for me to spoil an anime that you should absolutely go into blind. So instead of the usual style I write reviews, I’m going to go straight to my conclusion.

Love Flops is a really hard sell. I actually almost dropped it after it’s incredibly boring first three episodes, but the fourth had enough crude yet, good humour for me to keep going, and once ...

Return of the King.

Holy crap does it feel amazing to be a Bleach fan in 2022(3). After all of the slander and character assassinate made over the years by Youtubers who don’t understand the difference between a passive and active protagonist, and an anime community more than willing to swallow and parrot the lies and rhetoric against the series like a tori politician, not only has Bleach made the greatest anime comeback probably in the history of anime, but it is literally (as of time of writing) ranked number 1 on MAL. Watching the amount of copium huffed by Bleach deniers in order to deal ...

A No Nut Marriage.

More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers is more than your average love triangle rom-com, but kinda fucked up when you start to think about.
The show is about an insecure, gamer nerd begrudgingly getting paired up with a busty, pink haired gyaru for their schools incredibly weird, invasive, creepy, dystopian, ethically questionable marriage training program where the selected couples are forced to live together in a small apartment, and seemly doesn’t take into account whether or not a student is gay or whether or not a student actually wants to ever get married, etc.
Of course nerd boy Jirou ...
