PriPara (Anime) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
[TW: Gender Dysphoria, possibly. It's fairly minor.]

Considering this is one of my favorite animes, it made me really sad to see that it had no reviews! So without further ado, lets get started!

I'm not very familiar with idol animes to be quite frank. I have a decent grasp of knowledge and information about other series, but they are never really something that really captured me. That is, with the exclusion of Pripara.

Story [5/10]
Pripara reminds me quite a bit of a magical girl show. Main character has amazing power, must keep her identity secret from those in her daily life or face repercussions, cute overly read more

[TW: There are no trigger warnings for this series! :) ]


Story [8/10]
I don't have evidence for this claim, but I feel as if series centering around sibling relationships where the sister character is actually a huge nerd are becoming increasingly popular and more numerous these days. I can think of two other series [Oreimo and Watamote] off the top of my head who have a similar theme to Himouto! Umaru-chan. Despite this, I feel as if Himouto does the best job at tackling this theme. It's simple slice-of-life with the only real difference being that Uramu tries to keep nerd side somewhat secret from all read more

Preliminary
[TW: Transphobia, gender dysphoria, sexual situations, and pedophilia/child sexual abuse (possibly) in this series]
I can't believe I read this manga but I did and I might as well write a review about it so here we go.

Boku Girl's protagonist is an effeminate first year high school student by the name of Suzushiro Mizuki, who is constantly at odds with his feminine appearance. His life has always been overshadowed by men confessing to him, others not taking him seriously as a boy, and even his crush confessing that she only sees him as a she. Matters are worsened when the trickster god Loki decides Mizuki to read more

[TW: weight loss is talked about in one episode of this series; otherwise there are no notable trigger warnings.]

Hanayamata is the story of five middle school girls and how they all grew closer through yosakoi, a form of Japanese dance that is described in the series as a sort of "free-style" form of traditional Japanese dance. The show follows their escapades in forming a yosakoi club at school, practicing and performing their dance, and how they change over the course of the series thanks to the friends they have made in the club.

It's a sweet, typical slice-of-life story, it progresses how you would expect read more

I am honestly not sure how to describe this series. It's like magical girl idols, meet cyberpunk setting, plus a decent amount of fan service. It's definitely unique and it could of been wonderful, but I felt as if the series fell short of all expectations I had.

To put it simply, there was no way the writers could of adequately fit in everything they wanted to cover in twelve episodes. There were many plot twists that made zero sense, and had very little explanation. I found a lot of it to be shallow and not well developed. The series' ending was bland and only made read more

I started this anime by telling myself "I'm not going to cry."

Surprise, I cried.

I basically knew nothing going into this series, only knowing that it focused on music and was suppose to be very sad. There aren't very many "plot twists" that you can't really predict ahead of time, so I didn't find it a very unpredictable series, but the story is very enjoyable. [Well, as enjoyable as one that makes you cry can be I guess.] Overall I found it to be very real and very believable that this could happen. I suppose my one complaint would be that I felt as read more
