Every once in a while, a show comes around and takes the anime community by the storm. Forums end up being filled with reactions, and comments talking endlessly about the most recent episode. Images of best girl pops up everywhere. In other words, the show becomes hyped as hell. Some of these shows are actually good while others range from terrible to the mediocre. But through my poorly written intro, the question remains. Is Re:Zero worth the hype?

No, no it isn't.

The story of Re:Zero revolves around Natsuki Subaru. An Otaku/shut in who gets transported magically into this fantastical new world filled with dragons, cat read more

Are you tired of watching the same TV tropes being used over and over with barely any change whatsoever? Angry from watching the seemingly infinite amount of uninspiring harems that flood the new seasons? Bored from watching spineless protagonists that have as much personality as a 2D cardboard cutout? Well then my friend, KonoSuba is the show for you!

The story follows Satou Kazuma, an Otaku and gamer who dies trying to save a girl. He ends up in front of a rude goddess called Aqua who gives him the choice between going to heaven or going into read more

If you haven’t guessed this already. Gochi Usa is by no means an extraordinary show. It is in a sense just another show about cute girls doing cute things. It is not anything revolutionary nor does it seek to add a story within it, but if there is one thing that I can give GochiUsa credit for it’s the ability for the show to relieve me of my stress and put a stupid smile on my face at the end of each episode. And you know what? That’s good enough reason for me to like this show.

The story continues the daily life of Cocoa and read more

As a person who has had his fair share of pointless Moe blob shows I admit that my initial impression of Sound! Euphonium wasn't the best. In all honesty, The moment I saw the cover of the show I dismissed it as another Moe blob show and skipped it without much thought, and It was only through high ratings and numerous recommendations that I decided I would give it a chance. But even then I wasn't convinced. I went into the first episode with a face of disdain. Only to watch further and further until I realized how terribly wrong I was. Sound! Euphonium gave read more

A common trend that I see around me is that many people seem to regard any show that is emotional and tear jerking "beautiful" or a "masterpiece". These people get so caught up in their "feels" that they seem to disregard all the problems that a show might have.

The proof? Your Lie in April

Your Lie in April follows Arima Kousei. A former piano prodigy who swept the competition through his flawless performances when he was a child. But when his mother dies he suffers a mental breakdown and becomes unable to hear the sound of the piano even though his hearing is completely fine. read more

One misconception in the anime industry is that when a show is dark and contains excessive amounts of gore. Many people automatically think the show is deep and thought provoking. The problem is that many anime studios get so hung up with making the show as badass and dark as possible that they forget about the more important problems that might plague the show, like character development and pacing.

Akame Ga Kill is a great example of this problem.

The story follows Tatsumi, a countryside boy that travels to the capital to join the military and earn money to send to his village suffering from poverty.To read more

Moderator Edit: This review may contain spoilers.

When I first saw the description for Nagi No Asukara I really didn't know what to expect. The synopsis didn't really give off much of an idea of what this show was going to be like. So thinking that Nagi no Asukara would be another cheesy romantic comedy. I began watching with low expectations. Little did I know that what I was about to watch would be one of the most enjoyable slice of life anime I have seen in a long time.

A long time ago people lived read more

"No amount of great animation will save a bad story."-John Lasseter

When news came out that Kyoto Animation was going to make a supernatural anime me like many others were surprised and excited. A supernatural show with great animation made by one of the most popular anime studios in japan? What could possibly go wrong with Kyoukai No Kanata? Almost everything,apparently.

The story is set in a fictional world where Supernatural creatures called Youmu exist. Youmu come in various shapes and sizes. Although most Youmu are harmless. Some could be hostile and dangerous. To stop these Youmu from harming read more

The slice of life genre was a captivating one. Having the ability to soothe the viewer. To give them that warm feeling inside. It was beautiful. But now slice of life is filled with big eyed, blob faced, cute girls. In other words, moe. If you don't know what moe is to put it simply its cute girls who do cute things. Although cute girls doing cute things isn't necessarily bad. Most lack a good story, meaningful characters,or both. In other words anime studios are focusing too much on making the show cute rather than focusing on the quality of read more

Time traveling sure is a fascinating thing. The idea of being able to alter the past and the future leaves people in awe. In fact, it's so fascinating that many tv shows,movies,books, and animes use time traveling in their stories. Some of them are bad. Some of them are good, but none of them are quite like Steins Gate.

The story revolves around Okabe Rintarou and his colleagues as they accidentally make a machine that can send texts back in time. Now what sets this anime apart from other shows about time travel is that the story is read more
