Being an avid follower of the sport, the concept of underdog triumphs never cease to interest me, Giant Killing is one such show that is all about stealing wins out of the opponent's pocket and making comebacks.

East Tokyo United also known as ETU, find themselves in a slump after numerous slip-ups and consecutive defeats. As a result frequent sacking of the manager is not a rarity for the club. However, desperate for a reversal in fortunes, the club appoints the eccentric Tatsumi Takeshi as their very recent manager. Giant Killing revolves around Tatsumi as the manager of ETU as they try and get out of read more

SPOILERS AHOY!

Terrible. That's one way to describe Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no 'F'.

Toriyama-sensei took us all by storm when the second most recent movie, 'Dragon Ball Z: Kami to Kami' or 'Battle of Gods' was released. It introduced us to a whole new perspective to the world of Dragon Ball Z, with the addition of a major antagonist, 'The God of Destruction' as he's known, Lord Beerus. Not to mention an all new transformation for our hero Goku known as the 'Super Saiyan God'. As lame as the name sounds, the appearance and the way it came to existence was somewhat similar too. But read more

Straight up review: 31 seconds of pure shit, which basically sums up the entire Studio Trigger itself. It was nice to see Luluco again however, and her two other new friends too. Now to see if this has any sort of relevance in their upcoming future works.

Nice bombastic music to be heard in this, however an amateur can come up with about the same kind of music in half a minute with countless free softwares available online.

If you're gonna watch this, be prepared to lose 31 seconds of your life, however I'm in no position to say this after taking about the read more

This review will contain heavy spoilers so read at your own risk.

I've come across the debate among many fans of the show that an end of despair would've been a perfect and a better ending than a happy one. Regardless of that, the ending for Steins;Gate came as hugely popular and propelled the show to a high and resounding stance on the Top Anime of MyAnimeList. While it greatly satisfied the majority of the populace by having Okabe save Kurise while at the same time not altering the Alpha World Line, which also saved Mayuri. This was one of the reasons which made Steins;Gate read more

"No one knows what the future holds. That's why the potential is infinite." -- Okabe Rinatoru aka Hououin Kyouma aka The Mad Scientist.

Humanity has pondered the possibility of time travelling since long, Steins;Gate is the realization of that in anime format.
Now, time travel is a tricky concept, since it's a phenomenon that humanity is yet to begin to explore. Due to this, whether it be an anime or a movie series, the notion of time travel in its core is succeeded by one fact alone, that is the creativity and what it does with that concept. Steins;Gate is no exception and its success read more

Inferno Cop, a show where ending credits is 4x longer than the episode itself.

This is a masterpiece, but at the same time the worst shlock ever made.

This is satirical comedy at its peak and beyond. It's something that far exceeds my intellect to comprehend. This is maximum autism.

To make more sense, I'd have to copy our Lord Foggle's review on Mars of Destruction here while purely agreeing with each of the sentences and have no satirical intentions afterwards, and for me to come close to deducing what Inferno Cop is, I'd have to be born as Einstein in all my seven lives. read more

"All men are not created equal. This was the reality about society that I learned at a young age of four."

Thus begins the journey of Izuku "Deku" Midoriya, a dreamer, who's passion and wish is to become like his idol and role model, the Symbol of Peace, the one and only All Might.

There was never a shadow of doubt that My Hero Academia was slated to divide opinions among fans for all the not quite correct-- but inevitable reasons. Enter Izuku Midoriya, a cheerful but an extremely introvert middle school teenager who feels neglected by the society, not because of his depressive tendencies read more

Made by Studio Trigger who were famously behind Kill la Kill, comes another piece of work as absurd as the former. To sum it up, Uchuu Patrol Luluco is like opening a box full of colorful chocolates which would burst open once put in the mouth.

Ogikubo is a fictional place set far in the future time where aliens and humans and come terms with each other and live together. Uchuu Patrol Luluco follows Luluco, a seemingly normal teenage human girl who seeks a normal lifestyle herself in this crazy city filled with mysterious creatures. But of course that isn't the case as Luluco is read more

Mayoiga (Anime) add (All reviews)
Watching Mayoiga is like opening a surprise package and finding out it's something you so fiercely hate, thus transitioning your expectations into a decaying death. The premise itself is interesting, and there's a sense of an odd feeling of triumph at the beginning because as rarely as it comes, to see a pure original 'lost somewhere' flick is definitely something you can look forward to with excessive hype and such was the case with myself. As a matter of fact, before the spring season began, I had Mayoiga at the top of my most anticipated shows list. But Mayoiga, or rather Trainwre- I mean... The read more

Believe it or not, Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan had the most polarizing effect on me to date, and considering it is of a mere 16 minutes, that is quite something.
Now this one is a pretty odd stand-alone episode. The viewer is greeted with the most basics of animation. At first, I thought out to myself "What the hell? This has drawings worse than that of the two eternal classics, Mars of Destruction and Tenkuu Danzai Skelter+Heaven." The episode starts off with an angsty looking teen whose name is Shun Kaidou who seems like your average shounen MC. His talks are so cryptic as read more
