I wouldn't say I was "disappointed" with Ousama Game. I had no expectations for it to begin with... Okay, I had expectations, but they weren't positive ones. I figured it was going to be edgy; something along the lines of Danganronpa or Mirai Nikki. That's okay, maybe it will still be somewhat enjoyable right? But noooooooo. Ousama was able to surpass all levels of the shit-tier and earn its spot as my #1 worst anime (excluding memes). I'm not even joking when I say this abomination is worse than Akame ga Kill and Mayoiga.

Sakurada Reset is unfortunately another one of those series that got literally zero attention from anywhere in the anime community. On top of that, out of the people who have started the show, over 25% have dropped it. However, in my opinion, and to my surprise, this turned out to be one of the best written stories of this year.

***REVIEW CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS*** This is more about outlining why I enjoyed this show despite its unpopularity and high drop rate.

One of the things I liked most about the series was the way the story progressed. In the beginning, the characters are rather closed-off and almost read more

Concrete Revolutio was the one show this season I wasn’t expecting to be as good as it was. This series was a pleasant surprise of Fall 2015. And as it has already been stated, the MAL average here is far underrated. This is definitely not a show you should judge based on first looks.

The artwork is fitting for the superhero theme of the show. In fact, the backgrounds are colored in by tiny dots, almost as if it were printed out from an actual superhero comic book. Other background elements are drawn with very basic shapes and colored solid, also as if it came from read more

The Heroic Legend of Arslan is an adventurous tale of how a young prince is driven out of his own kingdom, and how he must become a man worthy of leading his people to reclaim his kingdom. The whole series is about war and its stratagem. This show exceeded my expectations in several areas, which is why I felt compelled to write a review.

Story:
I want to start with the plot since it is what impressed me the most here. It is very rare to come across a historical and non-supernatural war anime that is this good. Each battle scene is carefully planned out. This is read more

What are humans? What are monsters? What do we really fear? What puts us above other forms of life? What makes us right and others wrong? To what extent should we defend humanity, or protect the fundamentals of our society? What should we do if one poses as a grave threat, but no crime has yet been committed? But what if the person is an innocent child and the threat is the extinction of humans? How should we judge indications that may lead to such a fate? Were humans even meant to possess such power?...

These are the kinds of questions asked in series such as read more

Yakitate!! Japan: the only anime you will ever watch that is solely based on... BREAD. That's right. Bread. The only show out there where the making of bread is so over-glorified. The only show you will see with a protagonist whose only purpose is to be a beast at making bread. It is difficult to describe just how outstanding Yakitate!! Japan really is.

Yakitate has got to be the funnest show I've seen. Just as the title suggests, the show is loaded down with tons of puns, some stretched further than others. Not only that, but the also frequently include references to other well-known anime, or read more
