Why should you watch Uchiage Hanabi, Shita kara Miru ka? Yoko kara Miru ka??

The story is Very Good (8). This story is not for everyone or better yet, not for the people whose mind is not open to feelings and imagination.

Uchiage Hanabi is a coming of age story centered on a young heart's desire. The desire for various things like the desire to belong, to be love, to love or to be free.

The moment I saw the music video I was hyped on what this story would be about and how it would make me think; moreover, how it would make me feel. read more

Gigant (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Why you should read Gigant? (After 10+ Chapter Review)

Story is Very Good (8). Gigant is one of those stories that come from the mind of Hiroya Oku, the mastermind behind the hits Gantz and Inuyashiki. This means that you should expect 3 things: bizarre story, high violence and profanity and a sci-fi theme.

The premise of the story is a half blood Japanese AV Idol, Papico gets a mysterious digital dial-like object attached to her that has the ability to gigantify her body. *I can't help myself giggling while writing this*

The first 10 chapters of the story is more of a slice of life focusing on read more

Why you should watch Megalo Box?

Story is Great (9). Unlike today, anime before the age of digital advances put a lot of time in developing a single episode of 20-24 minute show for the audiences and this in turn makes the all the people behind the anime work hard to provide at least the best story that they could ever provide to justify the amount of time and money that is invested in a project. That is why if you are looking for wonderful anime in terms of story and content I would suggest you go back to watching the classics like cowboy bebop, samurai read more

Why should you watch Re: Creators?

Story is Very Good (8). Re: Creators story is a great meta deconstruction and reconstruction story that mashes different characters from different media into the real world setting.

While watching it, I felt the strong potential that it has and the possibilities within its world. I strongly believe that 22 episodes would not be enough if they did not contained the story about Kota, Setsuna and Altair, the main characters of the story.

I could summarize the anime points:

1. The first half of the anime being drawn into the world of possibilities and surprises.
2. The second half being the introduction read more

Why you should watch Mahou Shoujo Site?

Story is Outstanding (10). I was was never a fan of the Magical Girl genre since I was young, although I've watch a good amount of Card Captor Sakura and Sailor moon since I don't have a choice back in the Television era. But there is something with Magical Girls and a dark and morbid story that really tingles my weird taste in anime.

Mahou Shoujo Site is another anime that I did not expect much to blow me away in the Spring Anime 2018 lineup together with Hinamatsuri. I just thought that this is a mixture of totally read more

Why should you watch Hinamatsuri?

Story is Great (9). Hinamatsuri is one of the anime that I did not pay attention during the initial spring lineup yet placed it on my to-watch queue, but to my surprise it took the No.1 spot in my Best Spring Anime List of 2018 together with Mahou Shoujo Site. The reason why it is one of the best, boils down to its honesty and child-like innocence. Hinamatsuri in Japan is a kind of festival/celebration for the coming of age of girls, and this is hugely represented in the Anime with its young girl characters having their own quirky coming of read more

Why should you watch Tokyo Ghoul :re?

Story is Very Good (8). The question is... Did Tokyo Ghoul :re redeem the failure of its root a brother? I would say it did, but it could have been better. The reason for this statement is that, although :re did well with the story and presentation, it failed in its pacing. I have been reading the manga and it takes 3-4 chapters of the manga per episode. Please take note that each chapter of Sui Ishida's Magnum Opus is filled to the brim with details and character build up that would take time to fully adapt. So having read more

Why should you watch 3D Kanojo: Real Girl?

Story is Good (7). The story of 3D Real Girl is simple yet it is fun to watch. A full blown otaku is pulled into the world of 3D Girls (Real Life Girls) by a drop-dead gorgeous yet mysterious girl who's trying to look for something real in her world. I wanted to point out that even if my rating for the story is just 7, the amount of enjoyment I got from following the character's mundane yet interesting interactions is still a 9.

Art is Good (7). The manga, which was the source of this anime adaptation has read more

Why should you watch Sora yori mo Tooi Basho?

Story is Very Good (8). What I love about A Place Further than the Universe is how it takes on the coming of age story genre, how real the setting and the situation feels for the 4 main characters, and how they experience voyage to Antarctica. Yes, there is nothing new on the circumstances that they encounter, but how they are executed are well done. Every time I watch an episode of this anime, I feel refreshed and excited on what would happen next, and that is what is good about Sora yori mo Tooi Basho.

Why should you watch Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku.

Story is Good (7). Let me acknowledge the elephant in the room: Death March is not something new. If I were to criticize it further, it is almost a SAO (Sword Art Online) + Overlord rip off. However, what it has that made me watch it is not the deep plot nor character development, but the entertainment value that it offers. The story is light and filled with the usual troupes of Harem, Online Game and Action genre it would be so familiar to viewers that you wouldn't even care to notice it. You would definitely read more
