"And they lived happily ever after...Jk, this is just the calm before the storm."

This little gem is a diamond in the rough. It's not translated completely into english yet, but it doesn't have a single review, so I thought I'd write one.

Story: 9
The manhwa "Blind Marchen" is an interesting tale of a blind maiden on a search for something she's lost, be it her memories, her parents, or her sight. It puts an interesting twist on several familiar fairy tales, intertwining them into a beautiful web of a story. It is told in third person, also giving it more of a fairy tale feeling.

Ouran Highschool Host Club...oh where to start.

Story: 7
I wish I could give this series a higher score in this area. The basis for the story is quite original (even if it does include the typical male harem), but the execution could have been better. There were too many parts that I just wanted the plot to move faster, and it felt like many of the chapters were fillers. However, the comedy presented during the entire series was consistently hilarious and was one of the best parts of the series.

Hatori's art is beautiful and wonderfully detailed. I was constantly enraptured by the quality of read more

This story is about an unrequited love triangle. (of a kinda turns into a square later....haha) Basically, no one has romantic feelings for the one who likes them. It really didn't have a very original feel to it at first, but it has some good twists and doesn't take too long to develop. I did want more at the end, but the conclusion felt nice and I didn't really mind using my imagination to fill the gaps.

The art fits the story well, but the faces of a lot of the characters look the same or very similar.

Sometimes you watch an anime, and you have to watch the first few episodes to get into it, and then it gets good. This one is different. You watch the first episode, and you're just like--what the freaking crap was that. It almost feels like you're watching the final episode instead of the first one. Granted, it made me want to watch the rest of the anime, but it kind of made the rest of it anti-climatic.

Story: 7
The story was definitely different from your normal shoujo. The reason I only gave it a seven is because like I said, it felt like the climax was read more

I just finished this anime, and I loved it! I decided to watch it because FMAB is my favorite anime ever, as I'm sure many other anime fans did.

Story: 9
The story is quite simple, but that's perfectly okay for a slice of life anime such as this. I think one of the biggests assets of this anime is it's originality. It's a new twist on the "school/slice of life" genre that's hasn't been seen before, and it's done well.

Art: 9
It looks just like the art from Fullmetal! XD It's simple, but it's not distracting and the animals are realistic. The backgrounds read more

There are lot of ways to go wrong when you write an anime based on a famous work. Especially when that particular work is widely disliked by your target audience. Who wants to read a play about two young teens who kill themselves because they think the other is dead (practically right after they met)? It sounds silly. But Romeo X Juliet takes the brilliant parts of Shakespeare's play and turns them into a truly fantastic anime.

Story: 10
For a plot that was (loosely) based off of a previously written work, this was done remarkably well. Each episode makes you eager for the next.

This is my first review. It is mostly a review of Clannad: After Story, but I'm including comments on the first season, mainly to show how much the second season improved on the story.

I watched the first episode of Clannad, and I didn't really like it. The art wasn't really my style, and I thought Nagisa was weird and Tomoya was boring. I'm also not really into harem anime. So I stopped after the second episode. But I just couldn't ignore its overwhelmingly high scores, especially the scores of Clannad: After Story. So I decided to continue watching it at a later time. And read more
