Earl and Fairy is an adventure where a doctor and a prince are going on a journey to find an heirloom of fairy origin. But since it is also a shoujo, the doctor is your typical silly girl with a good heart that can see mythological creatures and the prince is your typical mysterious hairless chest bad boy hunk. YEAAAAH here comes the cheese.

Animation is done by Artland, a studio which has produced nothing but mediocrities with the exception being the highly acclaimed Mushishi. Other than that, they never had high budgets and thus this show looks rather run down. Direction is done by a read more

THE STAFF
- Animation is done by studio Satelight. Besides Noein I didn’t like any of their other numerous shows. Their budgets are average to good but they never try too much to create quality shows and anything they do is usually nothing more than dumb fun.
- Directing is done by Inagaki Takayuki, who is a bit known for his work in Desert Punk and Rosario + Vampire. You can easily tell he likes fan service and shits on plot, so you can pretty much guess right away what the show is going to be about.
- Based on the Total Eclipse light novels. Which in turn read more

Notice: This review covers both seasons. No reason to make separate ones.

One thing is certain, Kyoto Animation knows how to press the audience’s proper emotional buttons. As if they are remote controlled robots, it can make them laugh, cry, angry, scared, as easy as flipping a switch. And it’s not like it is new at this; the whole studio has dedicated its body and soul at making only emotional shows. It is the only thing they do and, boy, are they good at it. Its top brass director, Ishihara Tatsuya, after progressively improving his style through highly acclaimed shows such as Air, Kanon, Suzumiya Haruhi, read more

Animated by Studio Arms, and directed by Kujou Rion, both of which have made nothing but porn-related works. This show is no exception; it is heavy on fan service, has "aesthetic" in its title, and the main picture shows one guy and many chicks. Plus it is the adaptation of a light novel, so it doesn’t take a genius to tell it won’t be a mature show about the meaning of life.

Let’s start by something easy; the production values are average to bad for their time. Half the time I felt like I was watching a low budget hentai; with dull animation and cookie cutter read more

There used to be a time when the Noitanima timeslot was synonymous to uncommon stories and quality shows but those good times are now over. Even Noitanima succumbed to the stereotypes and fads that plague modern anime, and thus we get this show. Don’t fool yourselves to thing it isn’t because it came out during the ghost/zombie fad and is nothing more than a rehash of the premise of AnoHana, which also aired in the same timeslot half a year ago.

THE STAFF
- The animation is also not done by a bigshot studio but rather a minor one called Doga Kobo. These guys haven’t even produced read more

At first I thought from the title of the show that is was some sort of social drama regarding poor NEETs who couldn’t score or play erogames, but turns out it is something entirely different. Not for the best though.

THE STAFF
- Animated by Feel, a studio that makes only shitty ecchi anime.
- Directed by Takahashi Takeo, the guy who also did the somewhat nice Spice and Wolf, but is otherwise just another guy deep into passable ecchi titles.
- Based on a light novel, which means a light story. And in this case, just another Shana clone.
Just from the get-go, you already know it will be read more

War In the Pocket (WITP) is one of the most polarized additions to the Gundam franchise. You can either love it or hate it; there is no way you will just find it average.

Assuming you are aware of how the timeline of the show goes and have read my review of the original show, so I won’t have to repeat myself, this is how it goes. WITP was created after Char’s Counterattack, which was also the point where the Universal Century lost its appeal. Before Tomino went on making lukewarm continuations and rehashes thereafter, he offered some nice side stories, the first of which is read more

Stardust Memories (SM) is the second side story Tomino made before tarnishing the UC continuity after Char’s Counterattack with pointless sequels. Assuming you are aware of how the timeline of the show goes and have read my review of the original show, so I won’t have to repeat myself, this is how it goes. SM takes place between the first and second seasons and even attempts to bridge them together by explaining how those assholes the Titans got to power. Other than that, the whole show is a cheesefest.

A major problem with the show is that it involves a major battle that could have changed read more

Warning! Regerdless of what the first third of the pilot episode is going to make you think or feel, this anime is still a done to death goofball school comedy and absolutely nothing else. That first scene is just a troll to bait the unsuspected into watching a shitty show. And if you don’t believe me, just look who made it.

THE STAFF
- Animation and directing is done by a branch of Studio AIC, specialized in making nothing but trolling fan service shows like this one. Their previous projects include My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute (Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga read more

This is the debut work of the now late Satoshi Kon, and straight away he proved how talented he is in making quality anime. Combined with the huge budgets by such as Madhouse, the king of anime studios, the result was more than great. It is a great psychological thriller and shows well how fame makes you marry a role from which you cannot get a divorce without challenging you mental health.

What I liked about Satoshi’s style is how he is constantly criticizing the society his characters live in. Instead of going for the easy way out and offering fan catering and escapism (aka what read more
