Over the past few years, there has been what some might call a glut of adorable low-stakes isekai/VRMMO shows with cute OP female protagonists going on fluffy magical adventures… and ‘Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear’ (DAH BEARS... just kidding. We'll call it '3KB') just might be the most cutest, fluffiest and adorable-est of them all.

Literally everything about this show is absolutely fucking precious. The music, the artwork, the characters, the adventures, and even the motherfuckin’ title - all of it will bombard your every sense with the purest essence of cute-itude. There is not a single moment in 3KB which is lacking in cuteness, even when ...

I do not believe there is a language in existence with the proper words to convey just how much I despise this fucking show. I can honestly say that, without a doubt, watching "Boys Over Flowers" (BARF) was the most excruciating anime experience in all my life. Never before have I so hated almost every character in a show so fucking much that I found myself vainly waiting for them all to be slaughtered in a school shooting or terrorist attack, only to be met with disappointment when the sadly death-free ending is framed as a happy one.

I want to make this perfectly clear: ...

Who knew it could be so entertaining to watch a high school girl fantasize about her guy friends butt-fucking each other? And why didn't you bastards tell me about this shit?! Inconsiderate assholes.

'Kiss Him, Not Me' (KHNM) was an incredible surprise to me. Despite what I found to be a rather interesting premise, I approached this series with hesitation, fearing that it might end up being just another cookie-cutter romance between oblivious fools constantly overreacting to stupid misunderstandings, as is often the case with seemingly-odd romances nowadays... or perhaps something even worse, considering the touchy subject matter. Thankfully, though, what I got was not only ...

Now that you have made it to season three of Quanzhi Fashi (QF3), you have watched Mo Fan grow from a hopeless flunkie to one of the strongest mages in Bo City, and then put those skills to the test when the city was demolished by frenzied monsters, set loose on the populace as part of a well-planned scheme by the mysterious & evil Black Order. Now, after emerging from the rubble of his hometown a battle-hardened hero and moving to the magic capital, Mo Fan knows that he must get even stronger if he is to survive the evils of this world, and has ...

I do not understand why people hate Quanzhi Fashi: Part Deux (QF2) so much. While it is somewhat of a departure from the formula of the first season, the production has improved significantly and a number of story elements are far more compelling, making this season seem more "full" in many respects. While QF2 is, like the previous season, by no means a masterpiece, what it gets right outshines what it gets wrong.

Like my review of the first season (QF1), this will be pretty much spoiler-free, only this time, instead of going into detail about every facet of its production & execution, I will be ...

"You can attack me as many times as you like. I'll heal up every single time, and then bring this staff down upon the head of the person who insulted my friends." - Pauline, very cutely, and with a cute smile. I think you can see where this is going...

My feelings about 'Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!' (Noukin) can be summed up with four simple words: I LOVE this show! That's right, I fucking said it: I. FUCKING. LOVE. THIS. SHOW. Do something about it.

Because there are a few aspects of this show which will displease those who ...

Mixed Feelings

I just watched the last episode of One Punch Man, Part Deux (OPM2), and I have to say, I feel a bit underwhelmed and even a little cheated. The series seemed to be heading to this epic crescendo, developing a number of interesting characters and building up the suspense of an impending doom until... meh happened. Seriously. Man, what a fucking letdown.

I'm going to make this short & sweet, much like what should have happened to this season's story:
Story: 5
Art: 10
Sound: 9
Characters: 7
Enjoyment: 6
OVERALL: *6/10*

I would describe 'How Not to Summon a Douche Lord' (HNTSADL) as something of a mixed bag, but with a rape-shaped hole in the bottom. While the show does have some redeeming qualities - the story is interesting enough, the production quality is on-point, and there are plenty of entertaining action sequences - these qualities are far outweighed by its faults. This series suffers from one major flaw in particular, though, one so fatal that any positive aspects it possesses are rendered essentially meaningless: The characters fucking suck. Especially the MC.

Just to get it out of the way, here are the scores for this piece ...

Mixed Feelings
Quanzhi Fashi (QF) is one of the most interesting anime shows I have seen in recent years (I believe the correct term is ‘donghua,’ but I’m still going to call it ‘anime’ because I’m racist like that). On the surface, it does not look like much of anything: The general premise is hackneyed by this point; the character designs are bland & cookie-cutter; the animation is shoddy; the voice acting is underwhelming at best; and the entire production smacks of low-budget garbage. By all accounts, this series should suck serious ass... but, somehow, it doesn't. In fact, part of the reason why I find it ...

^As if you give a shit...

Green Green will always hold a special place in my heart. This is not because the series is any good - in fact, it is ridiculously & disgustingly awful - but rather because it is often unintentionally hilarious and has a few choice moments & elements, one of which is among the greatest scenes I have ever witnessed in all my life.

Now, let me be absolutely clear: This is not a good series. At all. In any way, shape or form. Not only does it have a nonsensical story, godawful characters, stupid dialogue and lazy animation, ...
