Servamp (Anime) add (All reviews)
TL;DR at the end

~Contains Spoilers~

Servamp is odd. Not the series itself, because it is by no means unique. Just the fact that it was actually published in a Josei magazine baffles me. Who thought it was a good idea?

STORY: 2/10

What do you get when you add 'figthing for my freinds!!!1!!!' with vampires with a survival game? The answer is a clusterfuck of characters and battles with lame motivations who's names you can't remember due to horribly executed master/servant relationships. The plot is very hard to follow at points, but from what I did follow, it wasn't that good to begin with. The conclusion, read more

Children are an interesting topic of discussion. Most people have their own general opinion on whether they're good or bad, annoying or cute, and worth the trouble or not. One of the things I like about Amaama to Inazuma is that it showcases both sides of children, and overall just comes of as really realistic. It feels like your witnessing the growth of a life. Or it would, if Tsumugi actually learned from her mistakes.

Originally, Amaama to Inazuma started out extremely entertaining. Comedy, drama, cooking, adorableness, the whole package was there. But then... it happened again. And again. read more

Battery (Anime) add (All reviews)
TL;DR at the end

~Contains Spoilers~

Baseball is a great sport. It's the kind of sport that can be modified to fit the capabilities of whatever type of player is playing, something humans of all shapes and sizes can enjoy. However, when comparing it to other sports on TV, in most cases, the action is severely lacking. Summer 2016's 'Battery' takes boring to a whole new level.

STORY: 3/10

Our protagonist, a cocky, arrogant brat who was already good at baseball before the show begins moves into a new town and joins the baseball team. He's a dick to everyone there, even his partner and brother. People don't read more

TL;DR at the end

~Contains Spoilers~

The reviews for this show are far to generous. Even this one, is far to generous, and I haven't even wrote it yet. If you enjoy cliche shows, then that's fine. But it doesn't change the FACT that this anime takes itself way to seriously and becomes one of the hardest things to watch in anime history.

Though I will admit the timeskip episode stirred a slight bit of emotion inside me, a fraction of my fiber that harbors a forbidden love for this type of anime.... the rest of it had me throwing up inside my mouth. There is read more

New Game! surprised me. At it's core it was just another moe slice of life with yuri vibes, but as an anime fan, it's not commonplace to reject this as long as it stands enough on it's own, and New Game! does just that.

STORY: 7/10

We've had plenty off anime about video games. Too many, in fact. But it's because of those anime that many gamers have shifted communities, and this all leads up to why New Game! is genius: it stars the two things stereotypical anime fans love most: cute girls and video games! I'm not interested in game design read more

Have you ever thought about what it would be like if all the kids you babysit were hot bishie airheads who made penis jokes and periodically break up with you because of reason's shallower than the kiddie pool at your local country club? No? Good, then you're normal.

The author of Hatsukoi Monster clearly is not.

STORY: 1/10

Exactly what you would expect from a shoujo story, the only difference being that the parts you can't stand (ex. melodrama, breakups, jealousy, stupid comedy) are magnified by a tenfold. Other than a couple laughs due to the absolute ridiculousness of making 5th grade boys look read more

TL:DR at the end.

~Contains some spoilers~

Now I'm nowhere near as good of a reviewer as some of the people on this site. I don't have a massive vocabulary and great sense of humour like ZephSilver, I'm not able to consistently write well with unique hooks over and over again like Stark700, and I certainly am not as experienced as the living legends like Archaeon, TheLlama and Veronin. So usually, when I look to write a review, I check theirs first. to look for things to include in mine. However, when I looked for their opinions, I was dismayed to see that none of them read more

With the recent boom of time travel anime, Steins;Gate was bound to rise in popularity, as the founder of this new mini genre. It had been a little over a year since I'd watched Steins;Gate, and seeing as I wasn't the biggest fan of Boku Dake ga Inai Machi I decided to rewatch Steins;Gate to see if it still lived up to my expectations. Unfortunately, it didn't. It went beyond them.

One of the greatest feats of Steins;Gate is it's rewatchability. Perhaps the biggest complaint about Steins;Gate is that 'OMG THE FIRST HALF OF IT IS SOOOO BORING'. Actually, I can agree with that. It read more

I think it's safe to say at this point that the hype train for this show is dead. I still see it in numerous favorite sections, but I can't find any more Kayo themed profiles or people screaming on the forums that it was AOTY. What surprises me, though, is how Boku Dake ga Inai Machi was able to hold it's place in the rankings. This has plenty of negative feedback as well as plenty positive, but to me, I didn't really see it as a topic for discussion in the first place. It was an average anime that just happened to be produced well read more

"The journey is the reward" - Steve Jobs

In some cases, plot armor works to help the anime. Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is one of these rare examples. Sure, we know what's going to happen. Sure, it's the greatest moment when the entire show builds to it's climax and then it explodes into a colorful rainbow of nostalgia and emotion. But it can't wash away all the screw ups of the show in the past, right?

STORY: 8/10

Thankfully, Ansatsu Kyoushitsu rarely screws up, but even if it had, most of it would have been forgotten with the climax to top all climaxes. Ansatsu gets most of it's praise from read more
