Doukyonin wa Hiza, Tokidoki, Atama no Ue. (2019)

This was a hard-hitting story that is a true coming of age show. Some people hate this purely because they don't like cats and won't look at the story in a good light at all due to that. "I wish it was about the dog" yeah yeah whatever.

The story is pretty tragic for both the MC and the MC cat. They both have love and loss, so they become a pretty great matchup in this show. I was expecting this to be a light-hearted show not so serious and deep. As far as the story goes there read more

Blade Runner: Black Lotus (2021)

This was not what I expected for CGI in 2021. At times the CGI is superb and really is a groundbreaking force towards what shows could do in kind. At other times, however, it is awful and shows a terrible reflection of what not to do. The main characters tend to be great all the way through but many side characters sometimes look like the lowest quality threshold possible.

The story is pretty generic but it is paced well and is pretty enjoyable. It was never going to truly end due to the extremely expansive world of Blade Runner. Many unexpected read more

Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru (2022)

Sort of confused about the presence of the dolls because they have literally no impact on the story apart from character placement. The MC could literally have been anyone with no friends that gets his world opened up. I would also like to question what Japan finds so impressive about people not realising they are in relationships. Yes, it is sort of innocent but at the same time, it is too clear to miss in this one. The traumatic childhood moment had no bearing on the broader story.

I would say the show I pretty fun, at one read more

Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? (2021)

The reviews kind of confuse me, like what is this really but a pretty mediocre twin story Isekai that does past and present at the same time whilst using some pretty dire CGI.

Story: Isekai with a class that is transported and you see 1 character get two simultaneous stories that are supposed to be some big reveal which is obvious from the beginning. This is due mainly to poor storytelling that leaves much to be desired.

The art isn't the worst and can be pretty fun at times, but even so, the CGI sucks so badly and becomes more read more

Meikyuu Black Company (2021)

I knew this would be a speed run show, called it. Yes, that means the story essentially is a start to an ending of no return likely. I am not sure how they could come back from this really without it losing its vibe. For a show that covers so much so quickly it does it well because honestly, you don't really care about the characters because the story doesn't want or let you.

Isekai for a successful NEET that has got to a victory stage of life who then is pulled away from it in his prime to restart. You see read more

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun T (2020)

An end to an era. I wish I had watched the entire thing in proper order but I didn't. I will watch this all again in the proper order since I enjoyed this so much with the index series together. I went into this thinking badly of Misaki Shokuhou because of a particular arc but turns out I was wrong and it all made sense. You have a fantastic set of characters in this.

The story is a continuation of the previous story and sits before the ending of the index series. It is a really good flow with various read more

Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season Part 2 (2022)

Before people jump purely on the hype wagon, yes it is an amazing series but it does have kind of dull moments and times when you just wonder why the author went in that direction.

That said this is a fantastic season, I knew as a manga reader that it wouldn't be enough to cover the end. I was afraid it was going to be rushed and compressed but thankfully it has a part 3 to come so rejoice! Like many stories and especially ones as deep and complex as this you do get moments of almost read more

Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki Part 2 (2022)

We had a good 7/8 until episode 13 came along and ruined the entire show with its mediocre display of absolutely pointless and unneeded expansion of a story arc that makes no real sense to include. Such vital information being withheld and theories that no one ever thought of. The story started getting a bit wacky but that took the biscuit.

The story is a continuation that gets more harem and less action in regards to the storyline. They seem to have given up with the meaningful expansion of making everything better in place of getting the read more

Kaijin Kaihatsu-bu no Kuroitsu-san (2022)

This was a lot more fun of a show than I expected it to be, especially with the final episode which was a right fun episode.

The story is a simple day in the life of _____ sort of show. It is a fun time too.

The art is good and basic for the sort of show it is. If it was too crazy in detail it wouldn't suit this sort of show.

Whilst the sound lacks oomph it is fine but then also lacking. The sounds generally are pretty fun.

The characters are just wild and unexpected which makes for read more

Tensai Ouji no Akaji Kokka Saisei Jutsu (2022)

This is essentially a different version of 'How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom'. Perhaps this is going to be a new phase of shows that we see, just like how many Isekai exist too.

The story is fine and does a nice job with its flow and keeps on track for the most part with the aims and expectations of the show. It does get a bit confusing at times with how quickly it tries to progress.

The art is the biggest issue, one minute it is fantastically average then suddenly it nosedives through the floor. Battles read more
