Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku is a 2015 anime from Doga Kobo based off of a series of light novels which were in turn inspired by Vocaloid songs. Well, this is the studio behind the first two series of Yuru Yuri and New Game, which is somewhat hopeful. But they also did that stupid Dumbbell nan kilo moteru anime so this could go either way.

Story:

Ichinomiya Eruna isn't exactly a normal girl. She's obsessed with cute girls, Galges and she has an idiot cousin with a romantic interest in her who hasn't quite put it together that she's very, very gay. Still, she decides to attend read more

Umibe no Étranger is a 2020 Studio Hibari film based off of a manga by Kii Kanna. Yes, Hibari. The studio that did that "yuri" anime that wasn't actually a yuri anime. It was just a guy being turned into a girl by magic and still being attracted to girls. But hey they also did the mediocre at best Venus Versus Virus.

Story:

The narrative is pretty simple. Shun is a novelist. He meets a young man named Mio who spends a lot of time sitting on a bench staring out at the sea. The pair strikes up an awkward conversation that leads to feelings read more

Yuru Yuri is a franchise I've looked at quite a few times. And there's still more to it so I'll be looking at it again. Nachuyachumi came out in early 2015 as an hour long OVA. Is it as solid as the rest of the franchise? Let's have a look.

Story:

We open with the Amusement club struggling through a hot summer day. They discover some camping supplies and decide that it's a perfect opportunity for a camping trip. Naturally, they invite the girls of the student council along and hijinks ensue.

Overall, most of the jokes do land pretty well. There are a few read more

Madlax (Anime) add (All reviews)
I've already reviewed Bee Train's other two girls with guns classics, El Cazador de la Bruja and Noir. Now, it's time to finish the trilogy with a look at Madlax. This was the second one released coming out in 2004. Is it as amazing as the other two? Let's have a look.

Story:

Our tale takes place in two different countries. The first is Gazth-Sonika where a long civil war is taking place and where the mercenary, Madlax, makes her home. The second is the peaceful Nafrece where our second protagonist, Margaret Burton, lives. Little do the two women suspect that the criminal organisation, Enfant, read more

2x2=Shinobuden is a 2004 ufotable anime based off of a Koga Ryoichi manga. Yes, the studio behind the Fate anime, Kara no Kyoukai and Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight was responsible for this. Let's have a look and see how they handled it.

Story:

Shinobu is studying at a Ninja school to become a kunoichi. One night she's sent on a surprise exam to steal panties. During the mission she meets Shiranui Kaede who takes pity on her and decides to help her. From there they become friends and Shinobu introduces Kaede to her wacky world of ninja hijinks.

There are two issues with the comedy read more

Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuushabu Shozoku is basically the Omake version of the great series Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru. There are three eight minute films and I'll be looking at all of them as a collective rather than individually.

Story:

We open with Yuuna giving her lunch to a pair of fighting cats. I hope it has lots of meat since cats can't survive on a vegetarian diet. Afterwards she meets up with the hero club to go help different people in whacky ways.

The biggest problem with the films is that they overdo it with some of the jokes. Yuuna spends way too read more

Zankyou no Terror is a 2014 anime brought to us by MAPPA. Yes, the studio behind good anime like Yuri on Ice and Dorohedoro but also behind such rubbish as Kakegurui & Garo: Vanishing Line. Right now, I've reviewed eight anime they were partially or entirely responsible for and the sub-par/ bad ones definitely outnumber the good ones but it is pretty split. Let's see if this one helps shift things a little more in their favour.

Story:

Our story revolves around a pair of teenage terrorists who call themselves Sphinx 1 and Sphinx 2. They begin planting bombs and leaving riddles for the police. read more

Early Reins is an original OLM OVA from the early 2000s. That's right. This is from the Pokemon, Figure 17 & Gunsmith Cats studio. A lot of their works I've reviewed have been pretty middling so, let's hope this isn't the one that gets really bad.

Story:

The narrative is simple enough. It's America in ye olde Western times where everyone wore stupid hats and Sheriff Bart overcame racism to be the greatest, most charming Sheriff of all time. Our story sees a passenger train with union soldiers aboard get overrun by former confederate bandits. The group takes six women and a decorated union soldier read more

I've reviewed quite a few Pokemon related anime as well as the games themselves. This time around we're looking at the fourth film from 2001. So, this was during the time of the best game generation, 2. Let's have a look.

Story:

We open with Celebi being chased by two counters, Houndoom and Scyther. Surprisingly for the anime, the type advantage seems to actually matter and Celebi seems to be in trouble. Until a young boy, Yukinari, comes to the rescue and the two go forty years into the future to escape. We enter the present day with Satoshi, Kasumi & Takeshi taking a ferry read more

Kanojo, Okarishimasu is a late 2020 anime from TMS. We know them from such series as Sengoku Otome, Glass no Kamen & Wizardry. So, not the best record. It's based off of a manga by Miyajima Reiji. Who I know nothing about. So, let's delve in and hope this is one of TMS's good ones.

Story:

Things aren't going well for Kinoshita Kazuya. He's broken up with his first ever girlfriend. His friends are making fun of him. So, feeling vulnerable, he decides to try renting a girlfriend. He rents Ichinose Chizuru and, due to extremely dumb circumstances, their families and his friends find read more
