I’ll be honest when I say that I never really wanted to watch Kimi no Na wa. There was always too much hype around it and it wasn’t until about a year later that I finally decided that I should pick it up. In particular, I was feeling bitter and sore about how this anime managed to jump to 1st place on MAL in scores, besting my favorite anime, FMA:B, for several months when it was first released. I thought to myself, “How could there be ANY anime that could even compare to FMA:B?”

In fact, I was appalled by the fact that this wasn’t even read more

Preliminary
BokuMachi is the story of Satoru Fujimura, a grown man in the body of a young boy, his past self, fighting to crack a gruesome series of abduction-murder cases and save the lives of innocent people across two separate time zones, all while evading law enforcement and the actual serial killer. It is a short, action-packed, heart-wrenching story about hope and faith, love and regret, sorrow and joy, but most of all, it is a story of believing and trusting in yourself and in your closest of friends no matter where you are and what time you are in. BokuMachi is certainly one of very read more

Yamada-kun 7-nin to Majo can be best described as a romantic comedy with lots of kissing and a bunch of really cute girls. While the anime starts off strong and very entertaining to watch, it starts to taper off towards the middle and then turns into an absolute train wreck at the end.

"Nobody said that a fake can't beat the real thing." - Emiya Shirou

Fate/stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works was the most enjoyable anime that I watched in the recent year, because nearly everything about it pandered greatly to my shounen taste for action, inspiration, surprise and awe. This is the gripping story of an idealist who overcame all odds, including himself and his own ideals. Though he was weak and his ideals were flawed, never once did he stop believing, never once did he back down, and never once did he stop acting like the Hero of Justice that he always wanted to become.

What makes a human? What makes a monster? Each of us have a bit of both in us, and it's up to you which one you want to be.

Parasyte The Maxim runs along many similar themes of many species-war animes, but it stands out from other man-eating titles because of its excellent discourse and exploration on the role, purpose and meaning of humanity, in light of our world and environment. Parasyte boasts a dramatic, thrilling and gripping plot, revolving around a solid male lead and the people around him, but in the end suffers from an entire host of underdeveloped supporting characters.

"Speaking politely only consumes time and energy." - Mado Akira

This review is going to encompass both seasons of Tokyo Ghoul. Before watching Root A, I had already watched season 1 many years back, so I thought I'd spend sometime rewatching Season 1 and into Season 2, just so that I'd get a better sense of the overall plot line and characterization.

It didn't help much, and though Season 1 looked promising, and Season 2 was exciting and dramatic, it all ended in an unsatisfactory, incomplete and cliff-hanger type of way. There has to be a Season 3, otherwise this series falls flat right here. The various read more

Every once in a while you stumble upon gems amid a sea of plain, gray stones, and to me, Hitsugi no Chaika was one of them. While it was nowhere close to being a masterpiece, Chaika explores certain themes and original ideas that few anime are able to. This action-adventure flick can get a little boring sometimes, but certainly pays off towards the end.

Black Bullet refers to the Varanium bullets used by civil officers, the only bullets capable of bringing down the alien menace that has been plaguing humanity, especially in the Tokyo Area. The anime bears several similarities to the well-received Attack on Titan series, but ultimately fails to deliver with its absurd and forced plot twists, its lack of supporting character development and its failure to offer proper resolution to the main conflict that it proposes.

"Which way does the wind blow? To tomorrow!"

Shingeki no Bahamut is a pre-apocalyptic show about fate, destiny and what it means to change your fate, thrown into a cast of very unique characters and a power struggle between angels, humans and demons. The show is very promising from the beginning, builds up a lot of excitement in the middle, but ultimately ends in a rather anti-climactic fashion with insufficient resolution.

"It's not enough to live for your own happiness, but to live for the happiness of others, which in turn, brings you greater happiness."

Sword Art Online II is a story about the convergence of the virtual and real world, exploring and questioning our perceptions of current reality, of the meaning of life, of hope, of strength and of courage to fight on. At least that's what it tries to be anyway. While SAO II continues to suffer from plot holes and poor character development, it has continued to excel in animation, screenplay and sound aspects. Well, let's move on...
