Kimera (Anime) add (All reviews)
Its an anime with late 90s aesthetics. While it may not appeal to a lot of people (because the last 20 minutes of this anime are consumed with an exposition dump and an ending which leaves a lot of head scratching - even though it makes sense, but its more short term sense rather than long term), the overall art style, english dub quality, and general competent direction is acceptable. I think its a decent work, even though I wouldn't see it a second time.

With that said, it is under 50 minutes, so that works in its favor. You can watch the OVA without prior read more

I fail to see why people will give One Punch Man's "Road to Hero" a low rating, but will have apprehensions with Sword Art Online, Attack on Titans, and Naruto - three shit anime in my honest opinion.

This is actually a really good episode: It gives a decent introduction to the origins of the suit which Saitama-san wears, and has fairly intriguing plot twists which are used to show that Saitama-san isn't just a simple run of the mill block of wood. In essence, this is an origin story which provides a certain perspective of Saitama-san and how he transformed into the hero he is read more

I saw this for the first time, and quite frankly, I fail to see how this anime - based on the 009 Cyborg series, apparently - is given so much slam and so much rage against it. Personally speaking, I actually loved this anime. I actually find it to be a really well thought out movie which introduced a new viewer to the series itself.

Story

The thing which made this anime standout, for me, was how the anime itself addressed the question of "His Voice", and actually carried itself not just that as a plot device, but also the in-anime presentation to proceed with the anime read more

Sengoku Basara is the Game of Thrones of anime - you either like it, or you abhor it for ill-organization, fan service, and a pointless 12 episode run which serves nothing more than faulted padding with no purpose or reason whatsoever. Sengoku Basara is frankly, a waste of time and does not handle itself well in any form or way.

Story

Bare boned and basic - bad guy wants to take over Japan, but there's "clan grudges" which prevent them from uniting and fighting them. These grudges are pointless and needlessly indicate the audience into falsely believing that there's a core plot development which in actuality is read more

Muramasa is, in my opinion, an anime which is underrated and certainly requires reexamination. While it might not have stood out for some reason or the other, to me (a person who finds himself appreciating and has recommended this anime alongside Shigurui) it certainly holds strong and for some interesting reasons.

As a story, its actually bare boned - the synopsis itself is a bit of a spoiler on its own, hence watch it without actually reading what the anime's story is (or blackout as soon as you start seeing it). In itself, the story was in my opinion, something which could be considered straight from read more

I'm surprised that nobody bothered to review this 60 second anime. I get that it is essentially an add for Murphy's Stout (which essentially explains the absolute lack of story and character), but I do believe that something should be emphasized on why this anime has a certain appeal to it.

For a start, I actually liked the art style - for a 60 second anime made in 1997, it actually is really well thought out and certainly stands strong even after the 19 years since its first release. The same goes for sound - the way each samurai enters the bar and the overall ambience read more

I'll be genuinely honest when I say, I have been a hyped up fan of this series until I actually finished it, and frankly, I think that it has some points which require working but overall as an anime - and something which I find myself putting in the Shonen category because of its main character (referred from this point onwards by its Deadman Wonderland alias, Woodpecker).

Sound

I won't like, I love the theme song of Deadman Wonderland - its fluid, it captures the insanity and horrendous brutality of the landscape which the anime tries to establish (and does to a significant extent maintain) holds onto read more

If there was ever an anime which put "kwai!" to perfection and graced it with a significant degree of adorable charm, this one does. While I would go on and proceed about all aspects of this masterpiece, I find it would be a lacklustre review and would undermine the wonderful experience of watching this lovely anime. Nevertheless, some pointers are always best to mention.

While there are some really nice aspects to this anime, the best thing which makes it sell and makes it viewable is that it isn't 50 FULL episodes, but 100 HALF Episodes (2 story events occurring per episode). Amongst the best aspects read more

Story:

As a story, it is an enigma: it is simple, but it is equally complex. There are elements which guide you right from the beginning, but as the story progresses, you keep those elements in mind purely as markers of reference. Put another way... its like being lost in a maze and making your way through it, only to realize, there was nothing achieved once you are free from the maze. And frankly, there wasn't much else to say for the story other than it used the art for progression.

The same perspective applies to Character, frankly speaking. Although they seem developed, they are heavily reliant read more

This is a rarity in anime, for me. An independent film which comes off far worse than Ark.

This anime really doesn't have anything other than cunnilingus, phallic imagery, lots of dicks, and only once - and I repeat, ONLY ONCE - does it show anything remotely resembling "Fetish" (a woman who is tied up, one of the gagging role plays in a Master-Slave fetish setting). There is no point being made other than being "visually stimulating" (which it isn't to be frank), or "thought provoking perspectives being provided" (which it doesn't), or "a strong statement about our society which is objectifying women" (which is hardly read more
