If you're a longtime anime fan, sometimes you're just in the mood for a great shonen series. Well, friends, look no further than My Hero Academia if that's what you're in the market for.

In today's media landscape of moral grey areas, antiheros, cynicism about humanity and general malaise, not to mention the complex geopolitical landscape we inhabit in the real world, life can be bleak. There are times when you just want to go back to believing that the good guys always win and that evil can be overcome.

While this a truth I believe will ultimately happen, it can be hard to see sometimes. Shows read more

I guess this was a serviceable little show. I'm deep into FFXV now and I heard this series gives you a greater appreciation for the characters. Basically, it goes into some little vignettes in the past about each member of the party, but it doesn't really show anything major. Prompto loses weight as a kid, Gladiolus gains respect in training Noctis, Ignis gains respect in taking care of Noctis, Noctis gets revenge on a lamia thing that killed his mom. Out of the four, Noctis' story is the most interesting as something of consequence actually happens. It would have been cool to see further into read more

I decided to watch this show because everyone was watching it and losing their shit over it on r/anime, so I decided to stay relevant as an anime fan and check it out. It took me about 2 months to get through it, so you can see I wasn't exactly incredibly engaged with it if it took me that long.

Re:Zero is a show with some great ideas that are fumbled completely. Subaru is supposed to be an expy for the average person watching the show: otaku, gamer, socially awkward guy in the real world, but gets sucked into a generic MMORPG-like fantasy world. My immersion read more

I've been an anime fan for almost 20 years, with my heyday being in the "anime bubble" of the early to mid 2000s. Those were fun times to be an anime fan, with con culture really blowing up, anime being licensed like crazy, fansubs still being fun and clandestine and shelves at Best Buy overflowing with anime. One of those shows I always saw at Best Buy was "Gankutsou", and I always thought "Huh, that looks cool, maybe I'll buy it" but I never did.

So after saying "huh, I should watch that show" after 12 years, I finally did, and boy was it worth it. read more

Berserk (Anime) add (All reviews)
This show was probably most popular in the anime community for making fun of it's shitty CGI and the "CLANG!" sound that Gut's sword makes in the first couple of episodes. The internet hate machine picked up on it and then went on a rampage of unfairly judging the show, making claims like "It's not just the art, it's the pacing and direction" when being called out that they just don't like the CGI, and acting as if the show is an abomination in the Berserk franchise.

To get it of the way, yes, the art is absolutely awful. The CGI looks worse than CGI shows read more

This was a pretty solid little show. However, I began to notice a lot of the problems the show had as I thought about it.

I'll watch any anime where the protagonist is not in highschool. I'm almost 30 and i'm long past the point where I relate in any way to kids in high school. I'll watch high school shows if they are stylistic or getting rave reviews, but I usually have been avoiding them lately. When i found out the show is about a 29 year old who has to go back in the past to stop a murder, I was intrigued.

The plot is read more

So I decided I'd write my review for this show on this entry rather than the first season entry.

Ushio and Tora is a fun show that tries to evoke that 90's goofy edginess and fun that many shows had back in the day. While it largely succeeds, there are few arcs that go on too long and parts that are a little bit boring. There were one too many monster of the week episodes, and the HAMMR arc and Kirio arc had some cool moments, but there were a lot of dull episodes.

My biggest problem with this show is Ushio himself. Tora is a read more

Full Metal Alchemist is an extremely popular franchise. I had watched the original series a few years ago and enjoyed it, but I didn't think that it was the greatest series in the world. However, the characters in the show stuck with me like few ever have. I was eager to see how FMA Brotherhood lived up to the original-and it surpassed it. This anime does everything right-a great plot that is intricately woven and resolves everything, terrifying villains, breathtaking action sequences, drama, humor, joy- It does it all perfectly. I am normally one that enjoys more obscure and unpopular anime as I grow older, read more
