K-On! (Anime) add (All reviews)
There are far and few fabulous things in this world.

But in the midst of all the moe puke and unfabulous whatever-dere, otaku pandering nonsense comes a series that manages to both please the fanbase and stand on its own two feet. No, I'm not talking about my reality TV show--I mean K-On.

Yui, the resident retard-moe, has herself an unfabulous predicament: she needs to join a club. What a coincidence that Moe, the tsundere (i.e. mood swinging bitchy stick in the mud) bassist and her best friend Ritalin the genki drummer have a club that needs members. The light music club. By "light music", think read more

I said it before and I'll say it again: there are just few things on this planet that can be as fabulous tier as I am. Aoi Hana is one kind of anime that comes dangerously close. (NB: close. Nothing is my tier as yet).

This anime has the distinction of NOT being a disgusting fanservice yuri anime. It is pretty good drama and isn't about hot chicks snogging one another or worse, not snogging and just drinking tea all the time. Don't get me wrong, this is no "snore, huh?, wtf, I can't even spell 'soeur'-fest" like Maria-sama ga Miteru nor are the girls candy read more

Blood+ (Anime) add (All reviews)
Blood+ is a cool vampire series that's not so cool because it went on far longer than it should.

The anime this was based off of was so much more interesting, but to appeal for fans, they made Saya younger, hotter, more man-hungry than her previous incarnation. Ah, accessibility...

Art was average. Sound was cool. I like the ED theme song where it sounds like an old lady is being strangled.

Characters were balls. The brother was freaking annoying. I hated him, ruined the damn series. However, most other people were fine.

I didn't enjoy this series so much as I enjoy getting an enema.

Cheaters never win. They just end up banging a lot of chicks.

White Album is a true life story about what it means to be a guy in the real world. In fact, a lot of people will say that this anime is fake and that there is no way that, how many were there, three, no, SIX girls would want to jump the bones of Joe Average, but you know what?? It's real, kids! In fact, it helps a lot when said loser in question is a big tool. Girls like that stuff. What success that the main character of this anime is a read more

If there was an anime that would make you look like a pink pair of panties with a little bow on it, it's Black Lagoon.

This is seriously one of the toughest, bloodliest, sexiest, kick tushiest anime ever created and it is better than you can ever be. It's not better than me, because it does have some flaws, but then again, nothing is really better than I am.

The story follows some pirates (not the "Argh, mateys!" kind) who do all sorts of crazy shady jobs for MONEY. Yeah, it's original that these people are motivated by cash and not by personal beefs. Makes it read more

My God, as if they couldn't do worse than the first season of this tripe.

I can't see how anyone in their right mind would think that this is a good anime. Firstly, the story is so ridiculously melodramatic, convenient and just plain old unbelievable.

In fact, so much of it is redundant. Ooh, to spice things up a bit, rather than just having all the passive gay guys get victimised, let them get victimised by relatives of and friends of and co-workers of their lovers! Everyone loves infidelity!

Just it makes no sense, since we all know they won't cheat since they're SUCH GOOD GUYS. read more

Other than the magnificent turd-like mass that was the first Vampire Hunter D movie, this one managed to take the first one, pulverise it, and make a nice hat for itself to strut about it. Because it deserves to strut around, really.

D is a half-vampire, half-Mexican--er, wait. Anyway, D is not human but he's not exactly a vampire. His powers allow him to hunt most other evil vampires and he takes up a mission to save some stupid human girl who wants to get it on with the undead, and so runs away with her vampire lover. While D tries to get the hussy back, read more

If you ever want to see something crappier than a Port-o-Potty outside a football stadium, then by all means, go ahead and watch Chaos;Head.

This anime is a pathetic excuse of art and it will definitely only appeal to people who think they're smart or something.

Pompous Sheep #1: "Snoot snoot, I must say this is a rather wonderful addition to the murder suspense anime world, don't you think?"

Pompous Sheep #324: "I dare say it is, on the level of Higurashi no Kaka de no Crappy ni."

Stupid!

The storyline is moronic to to nth degree. A loser boy who can only...have fantasies about his...*yawns*...make-believe girlfriend is read more

Oh, an anime that certainly puts the fab back in fabulous and the gay back in yaoi.

Junjou Romantica is a yaoi anime, as anyone with eyes would know. What it is, is a well loved yaoi anime and a pretty crappy normal anime. Yes fangirls, feel free to hate on me now, it's okay. Just one word of warning: you will never get any of these men. They're gay and fictional. Now go cry about it.

The storyline is plain old unbelievable. You expect me to believe that there are so many gay guys who are all inter-related, yet most don't know the rest read more

This is seriously one of the largest wastes of my time I have ever seen. I think I've established that my time is very fabulous, so I am rather upset about this.

We have what is one of the stupidest stories ever told. A love triangle between a boy and two girls who think they are his twin and fight over him. Other than the twincest vibe you have going, it's just plain unrealistic. Which two families/guardians allow their teenage daughters to go trekking across Japan to go looking for a boy? It just is unbelievable. I think there's something against the law about that sort read more
