When I first heard about Liz and the Blue Bird, I was quite conflicted. Hibike! Euphonium's second season was one of the biggest disappointments I've ever watched because of how much I didn't enjoy Mizore's arc. It got to the point where I dropped the show and never came back to it even after the arc was over. Creating a movie that expanded on something that drew me away from the franchise did not excite me one bit.

I decided to give it a shot anyway, seeing that I can't judge the side story based on the parent story, and boy was I surprised.

I'm not sure read more

Let this open the floodgates to more college and drinking oriented anime.

Grand Blue is an adaptation of the critically acclaimed manga of the same name serialized in the good! Afternoon magazine. It tells a tale about a young "20-year old" college student looking forward to a fresh start after enduring three years at an all boys high school. Little does he know that everything that can go wrong in his college life, will go wrong.

Since I'm writing this review as a manga enthusiast, the jokes didn't hit me as hard as it could have since I'm technically experiencing them for a second time. But even read more

Note: I will be spoiling the contents of this movie because I don't feel like I can write an adequate review without it. Please do not read this review until you have watched it.

I really wanted to think this movie was a masterpiece. I really did.

Maybe it's because I can never understand Makoto Shinkai's feelings or imaginations when it comes to writing romantic dramas. One thing I need to note is that I did not like Shinkai's previous work - 5 centimeters per second, at all. I feel like Your Name was a big improvement over 5 cm/s for the most part, but still feels read more

Disclaimer: I will not hesitate to spoil plot points in the review whenever necessary so please only read this if you've finished reading the manga.

Tokyo Ghoul is arguably Young Jump's most successful manga to date. It doesn't hurt that the anime also ended up being a phenomenal success in terms of popularity. However after finishing the manga I ended up asking myself why this series is so critically acclaimed among the community.

The beginning of the story is wonderful. It sets up a tragic incident for our protagonist Kaneki Ken as he turns into a ghoul. The first arc is Kaneki's experience with becoming a ghoul read more

Disclaimer: This review is solely for viewers that have read the visual novel.

Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel is a diamond in the rough. Being the absolute last route in the visual novel, it was ignored in DEEN adaptations in favor of the Fate and Unlimited Blade Works routes. ufotable's decision to produce UBW as the TV series and HF as the movie series gave it less exposure because of the time length between the production of the two series.

Seven years. Seven years has passed since Fate/Zero aired and Heaven's Feel is in fact the true sequel to Fate/Zero. The quirk with Zero is that it cannot read more

So there's this new manga that recently caught my attention called "Kanojo, Okarishimasu", or in English: "I Want to Borrow a Girlfriend". What is this about? Quite frankly, it's literally what the title says. The main character is literally paying to be a sugar daddy to set up dates with a girl that sells her time for dating services. Controversial topic? Let's see.

Kanojo, Okarishimasu is a shonen romance manga serialized in one of the most popular shonen manga magazines - Weekly Shonen Magazine. Written and drawn by Reiji Miyajima, it competes directly with other romance titles in the magazine like Domestic Girlfriend, Boarding School Juliet, read more
