"If there's something strange, in the neighborhood, who you gonna call?"

Bad news everyone, your parents lied to you (it's OK, mine did too). The Boogeyman does exist, there are things that go bump in the night, and yes, there probably was a monster living in your closet when you were a kid. No worries though, for when the bumps in the night start to get a little louder (don't get out of the car you fool!), you've got somebody watching your back to send the creatures of the night back to their holes in the ground. Sam and Dean Winchester, brothers who read more

Ladies and gentlemen, Birdy is back! And this second entry (or third depending on if you include the original OVA series) in the Birdy franchise certainly is a much different entity than the one that viewers encountered in the first season. The second season kicks off with a bang and a surprisingly high amount of gore not seen in the first season. These first few moments end up setting the tone for the rest of the season, which is much darker and more mature than the first.

The pacing of the story, which was somewhat slow and drawn out in the first read more

Amagami SS was an initially intriguing series for the reason that it tries to set itself apart from its peers in the popular "harem romantic comedy" genre by taking out the "harem" aspect and applying it in a way not typically seen in anime. With a touch of realism added in, Amagami does do a fairly good job in its endeavor, however this isn't to say the show isn't without its flaws.

In harem anime the main focus of the story often times ends up revolving around the question of "Who exactly is the protagonist going to end up with?" Amagami SS does completely read more

When it comes to watching anime, I really consider myself more of a marathon runner than a sprinter. Usually I like to take my time and watch a couple of shows simultaneously, so 24 episode series usually take me like 3 or 4 months to finish. Therefore it’s something of a testament to how much I liked Toradora! that I wound up finishing it in a mere 12 days.

Admittedly after watching the first episode I wasn’t overly impressed with the prospects for Toradora! It seemed like it would be a show with a slightly unique take on the rom-com if nothing else read more

I watched this OVA before I saw season 2 of Birdy: Decode so I was helped out as I entered into the second season. At the time I watched it though I didn't know how helpful it was actually going to be when making the transition.

The story seemed to lack any real punch, like it knew it was just supposed to bridge the first and second season and didn't have much real substance, which is fine for an OVA. A few season 2 plot points got set into motion which was nice and it did somewhat answer my question of how relevant Nakasugi read more

I have never seen the original Birdy OVA so I cannot possibly compare between the two series. Therefore this version is going to be reviewed on its own merits.

I actually found this show when it was recommended to me on Netflix. It looked interesting so I gave it a shot. Birdy had a pretty original premise and that was what initially got me hooked. It seemed like it was going to be mostly an action-based series with aliens thrown in, which is exactly what it is at times, but a lot of the fight scenes are pretty intense and fun to watch. read more

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? was certainly an interesting show. What initially attracted me to the show was that the main character was in fact a zombie and after seeing that it was labeled as a harem story I was interested to see where it would go.

Story: 7/10
Ok, personally I really enjoyed this show. However I would say that the story was the show's major weak point. The initial premise of the story is extremely unique and interesting. Main character and normal high schooler Ayumu Aikawa is murdered by a serial killer, is then brought back to life as a zombie read more

Alright if you're reading this you already know what Pretty Face is all about. That being said I have to admit that the set-up for the manga was more than a little bit ridiculous and highly unlikely (I mean c'mon Rina's parents had NO idea that they didn't have their real daughter?) But hey, it sets up into a pretty good and entertaining story. Randoh's continuing search to find the real Yuna and his adjustment to living trying to disguise himself as a girl certainly helps to drive the story. Additionally all of the awkward humor that arises from Randoh's read more
