A Scum's Wish.

I give this show a score of 9/10. Although many people say that this show is fucked up but i actually like it. Why?
(If you want to just read about the plot skip to the second part)

1. The simple ones first:

Gorgeous animation (e.g. the usage of watercolour-like effects), smooth movements and transitions.
The transitions using rectangles or/and squares with the new scene/close-up inside (or is it panels? idk) is very fitting to the pace of the show.
It gives the feel of reading a manga.
Character designs are also aesthetically pleasing, and sometimes beautiful pencil drawing-like stills are being used. The art is read more

"The Morose Mononokean"

DON'T WATCH: if you're looking for an action-packed, fast-paced show.

WATCH: if you like natsume yuujinchou, hotarubi no mori e or poco's udon world (in terms of heartwarming elements) or if you enjoy slow, heartwarming storylines.

Quick review

story: 7.5
art: 8
sound: 8
character: 8
enjoyment: 8

Story- (surprisingly) heartwarming and adorable at times. it follows the 'main characters are involved with youkai and tries to solve problems related to it' storyline. hence, the pacing- a bit slow, but it suits a show like this. the vibe is quite similar to mononoke & natsume yuujinchou.

Art - pretty unique (colour contrast, texture-thingy?) and pleasing to the eyes, a bit read more

When i first saw the promotional poster, i was like, Naru?? Handa?? Season 2?? But, no. It's Poco's Udon World, not Barakamon season 2. However, I think that this show is as charming as the latter.

The storyline is simple, it's about a man, returning from Tokyo to his hometown after his father's death and encountering a 'child' sleeping in his family's long abandoned udon restaurant. After going through some circumstances, he decided to take care of the child. Initially, i thought that this show'll be focusing on Tawara's (the MC) struggles on reopening his restaurant, kinda like a cooking show.

Instead, a stronger theme; love, read more

At first glance, Re:zero seemed like one of those typical fantasy-moe-harem show, but don't let the promotional poster fool you.

Under the cute character designs and colourful backgrounds, lies a very dark undertone.
A guy surrounded by many girls; we've seen that countless times.
But a guy surrounded by (cute) girls and death and killing and dying over and over? Now that's new, even if it utilised the now-typical'summoned to another dimension' thingy.

(MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS)

Subaru the MC gets summoned to a fantasy world, meets the heroine, fell in love with her, vows to protect her and everybody he holds dear. It seems quite ordinary, but he read more

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri was like a trainwreck. It started out entertaining and interesting enough, but at some point in the show it went off the rail and crashed and burned.

This show is easily one of those disappointing shows (I'm looking at you, Zankyou no Terror), as it was so full of potential, yet it ends up...well, disappointing. And for those who watched this show because it gives off the "Attack on Titan vibe", it's only there in the beginning, so don't expect an epicness of a (Colossal) Titan's proportions.


*Contains spoilers*

The initial premise was very promising albeit a little cliched. Yeah, sure we've seen it all read more

"What you see is not always what it seems."

I think the statement above is applicable to this show.

Rokka no Yuusha felt like the typical adventure-fantasy-magic-action anime, but after a few episodes, it explored a premise which is quite uncommon for those adventure-fantasy-magic-action anime; mystery. A mission to slay the Demon King suddenly got turned into a dangerous guessing game of "who's the traitor?" In the first place,that's what got me interested in this show.

Although many reviewers say that the mystery aspect in the show is crappy, I think that it's actually quite decent (before the last episode at least). Yeah, maybe I'm quite dense, read more

One Punch Man: You'll either hate it or love it.

For me, it's the latter.
If you're in for the comedy and action, you'll love it.
If you're specifically looking for a serious plot-driven anime, then back off from this show.

One Punch Man's (henceforth OPM) storyline is actually quite simple, but with a fun twist. Saitama's this bald, bored, and overpowered man who is constantly looking for an opponent that won't perish from his single punch. Tough luck for him. At Saitama's expense, it was soooo hilarious to see him get depressed because his opponents were too weak.

We are used to seeing anime MC'S struggling read more

One sentence review: A Ghibli-like adventure with a darker undertone.

I was intrigued when I saw this movie as it's directed by Makoto Shinkai, known for his great works that does NOT involve adventure, so I decided to give it a go.

At first, I thought that this movie would have a light adventure-y storyline. Well, not exactly light, but I didn't expect that this movie which seemed like a typical children's adventure fantasy movie to have such a heavy plot.

For me, the storyline is unique, as it incorporates both adventure and mystery elements into the story seamlessly eventhough it's not tagged as a mystery genre show. read more

Picture the bishounens of Ouran High School Host Club with guns. Toy guns.
Yeah, it's about good-looking guys playing in survival games. Although those who have watched Ouran High will primarily notice so many similarities between these two shows that it kinda creeps you out.
But don't worry, as the story progresses the similarities will fade out.

STORY-6
The one thing I noticed about the story is the pacing. The pacing is inconsistent; some things that could be resolved quickly were dragged and things that are supposed to be given more screen time is cut short.
For example, Tachibana the MC was almost immediately free of his debt, after read more

Highschoolers with superpowers? I know I've seen it somewhere...But no. Charlotte isn't just about highschoolers with superpowers.

I was skeptical to watch this show at first, because I thought that it must be one of "those shows" in which they would fight the bad guys one by one and save the day...Yup.
That premise is not necessarily a bad thing, I was looking for something fresh and different. Then, I came across Charlotte!
A word of caution though: if you're looking for a light-hearted adventure anime to watch, then this show is not for you.
Why? The first few episodes seemed fun enough.

Sure, this show made read more
