This anime is not breaking any records and ultimately it doesn't really have anything in particular to say.

However, it is a fun sci fi adventure with some interesting characters and technology, and the animation is quite good. Also, there are lots of women in non-demeaning roles and the main character is a girl as well.

As usual with anime sci fi don't try to look at the 'science' aspect of it too hard, but if I were to hold that against it I would never be able to watch a sci fi anime. (there's never been one that was based on anything close to reality). read more

Although this anime is by no means perfect, it presents some interesting mysteries and for the most part provides answers to most of those mysteries, but not all of them. Animation is absolutely top notch. Plus, unlike so many anime series of this kind, it actually has a coherent and fairly satisfying ending.

The characters are all fairly interesting and likable, but in only 12 episodes there is only so much development that they can manage for each of them. Don't get confused by the first few episodes, Koku and Keith are the main characters of this series.

I read an interview where the read more

This is the most hilarious manga I've read in a long time.

Seriously I do not understand why no one has even written a review for it.

Story- The tale of an aspiring middle manager in a generic corporate office, just trying to make it in this strange crazy world. The fact that he is a complete and total moron makes things a little difficult, though.

Art- The art is not really anything that special, but the pictures of fierce animals when he is going to do something like buy a new office chair or trying to learn to use a computer just crack me up so read more

So look at the numbers I have put on this one, and you will see something strange.

Story - 7
Art- 10
Character-8
Overall-7
Enjoyment-2

But...enjoyment 2? really?

Okay, so here's the deal with this manga. Don't pay any attention to any review written by someone who hasn't read all or almost all of the chapters. For the most part this is just a fun violent story about a werewolf fighting gang members. It's pretty hard on the gore, but I mean...werewolves.

But then the story gets to this place and I just.....

I mean I understand that a lot of writers, especially male writers, think that having a girl get raped read more

Blame! (Manga) add (All reviews)
Blame is one of my all-time favorite manga and I have no idea why. When you first pick this book up you'll be like "WFT is this he's just walking through endless hallways and occasionally killing monsters"

I've read the entire thing at least 4 times from beginning to end, and it wasn't until the last time I read it that I finally feel like I actually know what happened in it.

Story- So I promise you there is actually a story going on in BLAME. However, the writer is not going to make it easy for you to figure out what it is. read more

Bleach (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Bleach is a weird one in terms of how to review it, not just because it is so long, but because of how strongly encapsulated each story arch is. So the quality varies greatly from one story the next, almost like different books in a series of novels.

Let me start out by just doing this briefly and if you want you can read the much longer part.

Story- The story started out fairly weak and episodic in the first section. Then the second section was decent and began some really interesting things. However, the third section could not manage to completely read more

As one of my friends put it when I showed him the first episode of this:

Every shoujo anime cliche in the history of anime happens in the first 5 minutes.

This is show is so trite and unoriginal it manages to cross the line into unintentional hilarity. If you were one of those girls who spent a lot of time back in middle school sitting around watching sailor moon and magic knight rayearth with your little friends eating pizza and talking about how to beat bosses in final fantasy 7, then you should seriously consider watching at least one episode of this anime, because you read more

Preliminary
This manga is insane and amazing.

Story - The story is strange and will not go exactly where you expect. When I first started reading, I thought he was just doing a mecha for fun but now I realize that he is trolling us really hard. This series has all the standard mecha features, but everything is twisted and insane and delightful.

Art - The art is great, even if it's a little different from his other works.

Character - The characters are really fun. I can't say that there is lot of what I would call actual character development, but they are read more

I have to say that although I don't think this is the best anime I've ever seen I still enjoyed watching it. Unlike many shows it had had a nice conclusion that tied up many of the threads of the plot, which honestly is not something that I can say for an awful lot of series. Just the fact that they bothered to give it a proper ending puts it head and shoulders above the truly crappy anime.

Many people seem to have really hated this show and I suspect that expectations were very very high for some reason. Personally I just found read more

Preliminary
The D.Gray Man anime is enjoyable, if not kind of strange and quirky. The story is a little on the formulaic side, but the characters are somewhat interesting, and the art is quite unique. If you liked Soul Eater or Pandora Hearts, this anime has some similar stylistic elements going on.

The manga is also entertaining, although sometimes the author just seems to totally forget what story she's trying to tell. Things get quite dramatic and dark as the story goes on.

The anime does not actually have an ending, as the manga had not completed by the time it finished up, read more
