Facing irrationality doesn't mean not feeling fear, but rather possessing eyes that gaze upon fear and standing against the world.

Deadman Wonderland seems to be built upon quite an interesting premise when you look at it. Deadman Wonderland is the name of the only privately owned prison in Japan but it’s a prison with a twist. The prison makes its convicts face off in brutal matches to the death just in order to amuse on looking crowds of people, the general public! It’s like gladiator fighting in the 21st century except you’re not making it out alive, sooner or later you will die. Death is literally read more

“Isn’t it funny how the most unforgettable scenes can be so trivial?”

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, otherwise known as “Your lie in April”, is a wonderful tale following the life of Arima Kosei, a 14- year old piano prodigy and the ups and downs he has to go through in his life. When Arima was a young child his mother had decided to make him a pianist, however she would often beat him and abuse him to make sure he was absolutely perfect. As a consequence, while Arima did become a master pianist very quickly, people referred to him as a soulless puppet, nothing more read more

“Whenever we pray for someone’s happiness, someone else must be cursed in exchange.”

Puella Magi Madoka Magica is probably the most abstract anime I have ever seen, in terms of its presentation, the music and the story, it’s more as if you are witnessing art in animated form. Everything might seem all jumbled up at first but bit by bit it is slowly woven together. The show only spans 12 episodes but manages to squeeze a lot in- it’s small but power packed.

The show is about ‘Puella Magi’, who are mages who gain their power from a peculiar cat like creature, some sort of alien. If read more

Shirobako is an anime about making anime. In this sense it feels very different to most shows you might have seen but different doesn't have to mean bad. At first I was a little sceptical about the show, after all, how exciting can an anime ABOUT anime be? Although at the same time, I was also a bit curious about what exactly would be in the show. If you've been watching anime for a while, then I really would recommend you take the chance, because the odds are that you won't regret it, it really helps you appreciate anime more. Even if you are relatively read more

Fairy Tail is quite simply one of the most engrossing shows I have seen in a while. It’s a show that falls under the action, magic and comedy genres and certainly has a healthy dose of each. It aired from late 2009 to early 2013 so covered a good couple of years and so there was a lot of time to develop so many things and build up some pretty hefty storylines. If you are going to invest the time to watch this, just know that it lasts a whole 175 episodes (and even after that there will be a season 2!) So let’s get read more

This review will assume no knowledge of season 1 of Psycho pass and thus provide no spoilers, although the first season is as good as the second and I recommend you to watch that season first. Obviously :P

Psycho pass 2 was produced by Production I.G and aired during winter 2014. It belongs to the crime, thriller and dystopian genre and it is a show that delivers when it comes to suspense and entertainment. PP2 only has 11 episodes whereas the first season had 22 episodes although even despite the small number of episodes, it is action packed straight off the bat.

Psycho Pass 2 is set read more

It’s been a long time since I’ve come across a show that’s really made me question myself and made me consider my outlook on things. Barakamon proved to be a show that was extremely relatable and every single episode was thought-provoking in one way or another. It’s a show that I can describe as being a diamond in the rough- a slice of life show that you will never forget.

Barakamon spans 12 episodes and was released in the summer of 2014. The story revolves around the main character, Handa Seishuu, who goes by as a calligrapher by trade. Seishuu is gifted at what he read more

Claymore is an action, fantasy, supernatural based anime which was released in the spring of 2007. The show itself was adapted from its manga, spanning 26 episodes- although it should be noted it does cut off from the manga near the end in order to fit the anime in. This show gets going straight from minute one and from there on it’s almost impossible to stop. Almost.
The premise upon which Claymore is built is actually a very absorbing one, the setting and plot doesn’t seem clichéd and right from the first episode it is likely to have you hooked. The world in Claymore read more

Zankyou no Terror, otherwise known as Terror in Resonance, is an anime with a much different focus than that of other shows. This is a show which is based around the theme of terrorism but it’s not only the fact that this theme is seemingly different than that of others that makes it stand out, but it’s the execution that really makes the show seem like a piece of art. The visuals, the sounds, the characters, there just seems to be a lot of attention to detail.
The show itself spans 11 episodes and aired towards the later stages of the summer of 2014. read more

Kimi Ni Todoke Season 1 and 2 Review

This review is going to span both seasons of Kimi Ni Todoke, since I feel it is the best way to review the series.
Kimi Ni Todoke was produced by “Production I.G” and is by far their best anime series production in my opinion. That’s more so because most of Production I.Gs work isn’t all that great to be honest-luckily Kimi Ni Todoke is an exception. The whole show aired between October 2009 and March 2011, with 25 episodes for season 1 and 12 episodes for season 2, making a grand total of 37 episodes. The show falls read more
