Preliminary
Story (4/10):

For me, the CONCEPT of what Tada-kun wa Koi wo Shinai is supposed to be (ie: a story about a teenager that never falls in love suddenly falling in love) was what had me interested in this show from the start. Unfortunately, I think it takes far too long to reach the point. It focuses on it a bit in the beginning, but as you continue watching it just seems to be about a group of friends more than a love story. While I have no problem with that either, I didn't start watching this because I wanted to see a story about friendships. read more

Story (10/10):

For me, the story in Dead Apple was incredibly interesting to me. From the beginning I was hooked into the idea that people would be fighting their own Abilities, but it's so much more complicated than that. There were even some moments that pleasantly surprised me, though I won't say anything about that here since I know the movie hasn't been released online yet (to my knowledge) and hasn't screened in every location. I think the story was very well written and entertaining.

Art (8/10):

As always, Bungou Stray Dogs has appealing art for me, but not enough to give it anything higher than a 8. read more

Preliminary
Story (6/10):

For me, the story had a good concept. It was interesting that these girls all had different reasons for wanting to grow, for wanting to go to Antarctica, but... I don't know. The story wasn't exactly BAD per say, but it felt like it was taking too long to reach the point. I stopped on episode 4 and it still seemed like they were nowhere close to reaching Antarctica. I'm not saying it needs to be simple but... I don't know, I just felt like it wasn't interesting at all to me as I kept watching.

The art itself, I must admit, is quite read more

Preliminary
Story (3/10):

For me, the story didn't capture my attention at all. I gave it the good "watch the first 4 episodes" test and could barely make it through the 4th one. I know that the origin of this adaptation is from a game, but in my experience, most game to anime adaptations aren't that successful and interesting. I guess it's pretty hard to write an adaptation on something that's supposed to interact with viewers in a different way.

Art (9/10):
Unfortunately, the art style for this series is beautiful. I love the coloring, the style, the animation, and just everything about the art. It made me really read more

Story 7/10 :

For me, the story kept my attention through the entire show and I was pleasantly surprised and intrigued to learn more and more about this mysterious land as the characters did. I liked how it was shrouded in mystery, leaving me confused at some moments as to what exactly was going on before my eyes. I do admit that at some moments it left me a little too confused, hence why I'm rating this show a 7/10 for story, but luckily it wasn't too long for me to lose interest in it's concept. It was a very unique idea that had me hooked read more

Story 7 / 10:

The story was entertaining enough that it kept my attention, but I do admit that there were moments when it seemed a bit jumpy with sudden throw ins of certain things. That said, the story was MOSTLY well kept together and was enjoyable nonetheless.

Art 5 / 10:

Truthfully the art wasn't anything special for me. It was average. Nothing overly appealing, but not the worst I've ever seen either.

Sound 5 / 10

I feel the same about the sound as I do with the art. I didn't really care much about the op or ed and I feel similarly with the soundtrack. There wasn't read more

Story 8 / 10:

For me the story really kept my attention from beginning to end. I was interested in it even with some of the "filler" episodes with side stories for some of the main characters. I think it was a very engaging story up until the very end and while I predicted a few of the plot points along the way, most of the reveals were surprising to me and that kept the story even more interesting. While it didn't move me to tears myself, there were also plenty of moments that struck my heart and I think that's effective.

While this is just for Ajin s2, my opinions of Ajin overall apply here.

From the beginning, I was intrigued by it right away. The entire idea of it was very interesting to me. All the characters were likable for me (well, maybe except for Sato; the guy frustrated me to no end! Though I'm sure that's what he was supposed to do) and I was interested in what would happen to all of them. Kei, Kai, and Kou were the ones that interested me the most.

I was one of the people who wasn't turned off by the CGI Ajin provided. That said, I still rated read more

Before I started becoming interested in Mahoutsukai no Yome, I heard somewhere that you should watch the OVAs after the series finishes airing. I knew that these came out earlier, and while I was anxious to know what they held, I waited patiently. I'm glad that I did.

I think watching the OVAs after you've seen the entire series helps you appreciate them better. It makes them seem more like a reveal of Chise's past in specific more than what they show in the series. You get to see what happened to her between the times that her mother died and before she was bought by read more

For me, Mahoutsukai no Yome is one step short of a masterpiece. It's that close. I remember at first being slightly thrown off by the fact that Elias and Chise were meant to have some sort of romance attached to them. It seemed strange to me, but I continued regardless. I am incredibly happy that I did.

Their "romance" (or whatever you'd like to call it since it's hardly that) is quite the interesting relationship, and while I definitely wouldn't call it healthy on all regards, it grows. That is something that I can appreciate. Chise grows from not caring how she thinks of him, to read more
