Given (Anime) add (All reviews)
Bear in mind I've actually never watched a Boy's Love anime in my life, but there was something about Given that immediately struck me. The fact that I never watch this genre yet felt compelled to watch this show says something, and I'm telling you to watch it too.

Now this is my first time watching BL, though I am familiar with the common issues that come with BL. Sometimes the romance isn't portrayed right or is way too forced, not allowing the romantic aspect nor the representation of BL to come through as well. However, Given does this in a subtle, yet intriguing way read more

I know many others seem to believe this is a commonplace action show with bland characters, but I believe otherwise.

The premise of this show will tell you right away that it's meant to follow the lives of the Incarnates. They are super soldiers who lost nearly everything on the battlefields and are now attempting to find a way to live in society. This is the indicator that this show is mainly character-driven, the plot is based on the characters of the stories and it also sees the characters develop. You will get a sneak peek at the mental state of these soldiers and I read more

Bear in mind I've read the manga of this series but never bothered to watch the original anime because I knew it wouldn't adapt the manga properly. Hearing that this remake would adapt most of the manga and even give the viewers the FULL story and proper ending this time around is something I'm happy about. Though I am a fan of this series, I'm not biased when writing this review.

The reason why I gave this remake a 10 is that it captures the charm Fruits Basket always had. Fruits Basket wasn't just meant to be a light-hearted shoujo that has some comedy and read more

If it's for my Daughter, I'd Even Defeat a Demon Lord is quite possibly the most adorable show you will ever see and I recommend giving it a watch.

This show offers practically the sweetest little anime girl you will ever witness along with the ever-so caring, yet badass Dale who loves Latina more than anything else in the world. This dynamic is refreshing and pleasant in the way it's presented and allows this anime to earn such a high score.

Not only does the mystery element behind Latina rope you in, but the story is executed in a well-paced manner and gets entertaining in read more

All you need to know about this movie is that it's all focused on Rin and the Samezuka swim team. It's a retelling of Eternal Summer at face value, however, the extra scenes and emphasis on Rin and his swim team really made for this movie to be so good. If you're a Rin fan (like myself) you will absolutely enjoy this movie.

The beginning actually brought me to tears because there are extra scenes of Rin's childhood when his father was alive and he was a happy little kid who admired his father. But then you also see that same child lose his father read more

Orange (Anime) add (All reviews)
That's right, I daringly gave this anime a 10 and I will tell you why.

I'm honestly quite sad to see that most of the top reviews for this show aren't good ones because I completely differ. I realized many people who gave this show a low rating seemed as though they really didn't understand the show much. I shall begin with why I gave this show a bold 10, trust me, I will explain myself.

Orange deals with very taboo topics that are easily a hit or miss in this society. Topics such as depression and suicide can either be done very well read more

To begin with, reading the synopsis of this anime may either intrigue some people or turn some others away, and I will say to those who aren't really sure or thinking about turning away, that you really shouldn't.

DomeKano's story may have an odd premise or one that you've never really heard of, but I would say that's what makes this show worthy of a watch. The story itself would seem to be the type that's too weird to watch or enjoy, however, the show executes its story in a great way that isn't weird at all. The show has a very chill and calm read more

I'm seeing MANY reviews about this show that are really negative and I respect the opinions, but I believe in my opinion, they don't really understand the show itself. I'm writing this review to allow people who are going to watch this show realize that it honestly doesn't deserve the awful reviews it gets, mainly because it's misunderstood.

There are statements I want to make on the show that hopefully clears its misunderstandings and debunks a lot of the criticism it gets:

1) Yes, this show has MANY cliches in it, however, just as Kimi Ni Todoke became a staple shoujo anime that the rest are read more

Since this series is just beginning and will evidently develop in the time that it airs, from what I've seen, this show definitely deserves a solid 9 from me.

The story is as you read in the synopsis and may sound unoriginal at first, but is completely the opposite and has its own originality. With your run-of-the-mill isekai anime that have been flooding the anime community for a while now, we usually see the main protagonists of these shows transported to a world where they’re the center of attention, become super strong and eventually end up as Gary Stus or Mary Sues that are fawned read more

Now I usually don't write reviews because I'm quite an open-minded person who generally likes to enjoy films or shows instead of trying to critique them. I find that enjoying what you're watching is more important than trying to find every little detail that's wrong with it, and with "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas", this was completely the case for me.

"I Want to Eat Your Pancreas" without a doubt had me all in my feels and genuinely engaged in the story. It caught my attention the minute it started and I never once took my eyes off the screen or paused for a read more
