After finishing this show, I only have one thing to say... I need a second season bro.

Genjitsu no Yohane started out as an April's Joke from the sunrise staff surprisingly became an actual anime with deep messages and gripping character development. They could've made this anime as a joke, but they didn't. The staff went above and beyond with this anime, and I praise them for that. This is a spin-off with a lot of heart put into it.

The story - I'm gonna keep this review spoiler-free so do not worry. The story of this anime is more of a character-driven story focused on Yohane, ...

I have to admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of Nijigaku Season 1. It took me a while to enjoy the solo idol thing and even now, I'm still not 100% sure what my stance on it is. But I don't hate it and there's one character here in particular that makes me enjoy solo live... and spoiler alert, it's Lanzhu.

First, let's talk about the plot. Even in Season 1, there's not much plot going on compared to its predecessors (SIP and Sunshine). But here, there are at least some conflicts and character backgrounds going on that make the episodes entertaining and have a linear ...

It's been so long since I last smiled while watching every episode of an anime. And to think this was the anime that made me do that... I'm smiling again just thinking about it.
Now, before I review this anime, because I am 100% sure that a lot of people skipped this series and wrote it off as "generic moe sol anime but with healing", I just wanna say that technically you're not wrong for thinking that. What I'm trying to say is that this anime is not for everyone. If you hate music anime, then this isn't for you. If you hate female protagonists then ...

Well... that was a unique experience. It really feels like a horror version of "Lord of the Fireflies".
One thing that I learned from this manga... Sakiko is too precious for this world. She's the Best Girl in this manga BY FAR. As well as the Best Character in extension.

The story is quite good and bad at the same time. The story beats, the plot, was fine. But the execution and the pacing was kinda bad. It definitely didn't aged well.
The premise was pretty unique (for the time) and the problems that was thrown at the main cast were good and kept the story interesting ...

Summer Ghost (Anime) add
That was a good 40 minutes movie. Though I felt like it could've been better if it was longer. Like, a good 1 hour and 30 minutes is probably the best runtime for this in order to flesh out the characters' backstories, motivations, and adding more depth to them.
Cause as it stands for now, characters just happen to be that kind of characters for the story to function. Like, the girl was just getting bullied just because. Or the other guy is [spoiler] just because. There isn't really a "why?" on the things that are happening. And that's a shame because if we had gotten ...

I like this more grounded slice of life CGDCT compared to the usual yuri-bait CGDCT animes.
There's this satisfaction when the girls are actually talking with their parents and getting permission for everything they wanna do. It just feels so realistic and there's this feeling of growth from the characters that we see from the perspective of the parents (like how they see their children going to their own adventure, that kind of feeling).

The story is as expected from a CGDCT anime. Average. The only plot thread that was fairly important is the MC's father. Other than that, there's no stand out in the plot.

What a good anime. There’s not much to say about this anime that hasn’t been said already. Hidden gem, most underrated anime this season, etch.
The story telling in the first cour was exceptional. With how the pacing is, the emotional beats, and character introductions that was out of the norm; it makes for an extremely fresh and unique anime. That’s how I can describe the charm of this anime. Though, the second cour wasn’t as good as the first cour. It had a lot of plot conveniences, plot threads that was revealed pretty underwhelmingly, and character changes that came out of nowhere. It was ...

Wow, this one really surprised me. It's a pretty good music/idol anime that I never heard of before. I'm glad I gave it a chance.

The story, while it's pretty fast-pace and a bit cheesy at times, I think that it told what it needed to tell from it's initial premise. But 12 episodes isn't really enough to flesh out the plot to bring out some depth or meaningful messages to it. Though I really enjoyed the story nonetheless.
But regardless of that, this show really has some trouble in balancing the magic and reality aspect of it. There's no fine line on what magic can and ...

Wait... where's Banana? Why isn't she here in this movie?
Welp, worst movie of all time smh

Not recommended

But seriously speaking, that's the only major disappointment to this movie.
The story, or at least the pacing for this movie is much better than I expected after the disappointment the two Camelot movies. The story base (from the game) is already great, the only thing the movie needed to do is to fit it in a movie format, and I'm glad to say that they did a decent job.
The game is better overall due to more fleshed out dialogues and better paced, but this movie is a great ...

Damn, that was a great Sakuga Compilation of the movie. Now where's the complete version of the movie? Huh? This is the full movie? What?

My opinions and thoughts from the first movie didn't really change much after this one. The pacing was still all over the place, and the character interactions are some of the weakest.
The two movies fails as adaptation and as stand-alone movies.
It's frustrating to watch as a fan of the game's story, with all the cut characters and noodle-wet interactions from the characters. And I imagine how boring these movies can be from an anime-only perspective with the butchered pacing and characters.

The ...
