As is often the case nowadays, even a lot of sub par anime still get a good art direction. So along with that, let's cover this positive site first, shall we? The anime is drawn in an unusual, gritty, yet appealing style. The music and atmosphere are pretty good. Buut.. That is all.

Megalo box. What is it? If box is for boxing, what is the 'megalo' part? Well, in this post war universe, that looks like a third world country, with the elite living in luxury (as is often the case), it is PLOT. Basically, it is a boxing tournament that is used read more

There's not much that can be said about this show, as there is very little of substance. At the core of it though, this is just another poke at the wide valley of mediocrity. So, here we go, starting off with the good first:

The art, music and voice acting are pretty good (although they REALLY overuse the horror music track). Overall feel is pretty decent too. That is all. Now, the bad.. And there's way more of it BUT... Its still not enough to make the show bad, although definitely enough to not make it good.

Lack of story. This can't be stated hard read more

Score - 6.8/10

Violet Evergarden, traveling messenger and professional tear jerker

Now then, the best place to start would be putting aside the story, and going about everything else, since its a very easy thing to do due to being summable in one word: Superb. Good music. Character designs are great. The backgrounds and art looks amazing. Characters are written well, and their interactions feel real and organic. Why the low score then? The story.

From the very start, it sets a false premise, so much so that you could assume this is some kind of retro sci fi. It is not. How come? Well, read more

Now then, where to start with this trainwreck? Now don't get me wrong, its not that bad overall, but its extremely immature and badly written, the whole story can be summed up in nearly full detail in one paragraph : "Deaf girl gets transferred into class, gets bullied by kids, and mostly by a kid that doesn't know how he should interact with her. Said kid gets blamed for it, turns from bully to bullied, then grows up completely socially awkward, trying to fix it first by suicide, and then by trying to make it up to the girl. Girl meanwhile blames herself read more

Now let me start and say I have not played the visual novel, or touched any other thing this might be connected to, and I did hear this was made with a fundraiser that was very successful, but still,my expectations for this where really low from the get go... But hey, it has catgirls, that's enough reason to like it, right?

Unfortunately that's not the case. From the very start it was clear to me this won't bring anything decent to the table by the simple fact that the opening played a mere minute or two from the start(that was actually a pretty read more

Made in abyss, the anime. I was pretty pumped for this one, after all, i just happened to pick up and binge the manga a mere few days prior to the anime release, without knowing about it. The manga for this series was superb, even if it did play on the angst and drama a bit too much, and contained some questionable material (mainly underage nudity, although i still find it not too clear how people are more disturbed with this rather than the other themes in this manga such as torture, gore, death, and all the other insanity going on)

This show seemed to get quite a lot of hype and attention on the internet and anime forums, so i though - "Why not check it out?". And so i did. And oh boy, was i disappointing. Now as with every show, i go in with reasonable low expectations, hoping to be pleasantly surprised later. In this case i sure wasn't.

First, and most important problem - complete lack of originality. Most people gain super powers at some point (boy, have never seen this one!). The protagonist isn't only in the minority who don't have powers, but is also physically weak (underdog? yep, for read more

I like post apocalyptic settings. I like action. I like wit and creative and critical outlooks on life. I do not like the show however, even though it has all those. Surprising, right?

Now, let's have a glance at how this comes to be? First of all - the story and characters. The story is rather shallow and vague, masking its flaws with volume, passing characters (that die off or are never seen again even if they live), tons of conversation (most of which is pointless and repetitive, to the point a lot of characters could be one and the same), and philosophical questions (that read more

If you'd ask me to describe this anime in a few words, this would be one of the more rare cases in where i could do that very efficiently. Those few words would be: "The anime is about letting go, coming to terms, and living on". The show does a beautiful job of relaying those things, as well as their importance.

There's less bad things in this anime than good, so let me start off with those. First of all- the few very obvious plot holes that come to mind when watching this, and that are not addressed :
1- If humans got to the read more

"Planetes", "ΠΛΑΝΗΤΕΣ", or "Why i came into space to become a garbage man, and more interesting tales" Is an anime about.. Well, space obviously. Describing it beyond that is rather hard, as even the show itself doesn't seem to know what direction it wants to take. Comedy, yet drama, childish (and sometimes idiotic things), yet mature (tho in most cases the execution is still very childish), action, politics, family and relationships, romance, philosophy.. All those themes come into play, but most of them on a rather shallow level.

Planetes has it all, yet almost nothing in the same time. It would be unjust to read more
