A Preliminary review for the first volume, as it's only just been translated into English, and seemingly no one knows about this manga despite the tremendous promise it has so far.

So far, Bakemono Yawa-zukushi, or as it is being published in English, Phantom Tales of the Night, is a manga about a mysterious place called Thundercloud Inn which takes in the unfortunate at the price of you biggest secret! It's possible a grand plot will be revealed, however the manga has been mostly episodic for now, showing semi-unrelated stories of people and spirits meeting the Inns strange and beautiful owner and his two servants Spider read more

Bottle Fairy is a cute show to fill time and make you feel better.

Recommended if you like: K-On!, Lucky Star, anything with cute Moeblobs

Bottle Fairy is low on plot and lower on sense, but that’s fine because it’s sweet enough to give you diabetes. Over the course of a year, four fairies learn about Human culture and life through guidance from a little girl and re-enacting things themselves using their fairy magic.

The shows main appeal is the cuteness of its four characters, and they certainly deliver on that. Each of them has simple but memorable more designs and are voiced well too. They each read more

Akira (Anime) add (All reviews)
So you’ve heard of Akira, if you’ve spent even a minute inside of the anime community you probably have, and you might have even heard of it outside of the community. Akira is one of those rare Anime, like Pokemon and Spirited Away, that are relatively well known internationally. Does it deserve such praise?
Well, kind of.

Art 10/10
The film is the absolute epitome of Style over Substance. Its art and animation (funded by over a billion US dollars in 1980’s money!) are so detailed and fluid they make this movie one of the best animated films of all time. Top three at worst. You will be read more

When I was 13 I thought this was the greatest anime ever made, and that sentiment is probably everything you need to know about Guilty Crown.

That said, while I see it's flawed, It's still a guilty pleasure (no pun intended) for me. As an initial statement, if all you've seen is Sword Art Online, Naruto, and Bleach, then this is a great anime to watch to see what else the medium has to offer, and I mean that in a mostly positive way.

the Art and Animation, for example, is just great and is probably the pinnacle of what 2011 had to offer, which is saying read more

There are only two kinds of people who will consider watching this decade and a half old show; those who have never seen any Fate shows and are looking for a place to start, and those who have already watched other Fate shows and are looking for more. If you’re the former, don’t bother. If you’re the latter, well . . .

The worst thing about this adaptation of Fate stay night, contrary to most negative (and even positive) reviews of the show, is not it’s lackluster animation, the real problem is its inconsistency in which story it wants to tell.

F/sn 2006 is usually described as read more
