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 it 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 read more

WARNING: STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM THIS PIECE OF SHIT! EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS OVA IS TOTAL SHIT! SHIT, I TELL YOU! SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT!

Not too long ago, I posted a review of the Green Green anime series, which I described as "ridiculously & disgustingly awful" yet "often unintentionally hilarious." Here is an excerpt from that review:

^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 read more

***SPOILER WARNING: PLOT ELEMENTS & ENDING REVEALED***

Your Lie in April is quite possibly the most disappointing anime that I have ever seen. This is because the series brings you in with gorgeous visuals, fantastic sound work, an interesting concept and elements of delicious suspense... and then lets you down with horrible story execution, insufferable characters, and an ending which makes you want to go into "Kyle mode" and punch a hole through the fucking screen. I really wanted to like this series... but it just wouldn't let me.

To get it out of the way, here is how I rated the show (out of 10):
