Preliminary
As a disclaimer, I dropped this series chapter 74, so as I write this review, I've only read about 30% of this series. Whether you choose to value my criticisms or dismiss them based on how much I read, just know I'm only speaking about what I have saw.

First, allow me to soothe your mind and soul by talking about the good, that is, before I put on my apron, grab my knife, and butcher this series. Sasuga's art is consistently good. I don't think I read a chapter where I had any complaints with how it was drawn, so you can bank on this read more

Preliminary
I've come to a point where I have little to no patience for sitting through mediocre anime anymore, why? Simply because there is a vast ocean of other series that I could be watching that are actually good. I don't have to waste my time trudging in the filth that is produced season to season by the anime industry.

The question I ask myself today is, how in the hell did this anime manage to hook me in for nine episodes with my current mindset!? Maybe it was the pretty colors, maybe it was my blind faith in P.A. Works, maybe it was my want to read more

A lot of times when people try to persuade someone to watch/read series the first thing we tend to do is cover up or separate our bias towards the series. Obviously if you're a fanboy or a hater, your opinion towards a series will lose some credibility. With that being said I will not hide the fact that I love Attack on Titan and consider myself a big fan of the series, so whether your take my review on the show serious or not is absolutely your choice, as I attempt to convince you that the second season of Shingeki no Kyojin is phenomenal.

Durarara!!x2 Ketsu, which I will shorten to DRRR Ketsu, for laziness reasons, was just a bundle of crazy, all over the wall fun. If you have seen Baccano, then would know the same writer of this series Ryogo Narita loves his stories with, no main characters, no real plot, and no real ending; but with that being said we still have major and minor characters, a story that makes senses, and a ending that resolves the book left open.

i found that the story effectively intertwined the characters in Celty's literal and figurative spider web, most of the characters were either connected directly to Celty or read more

Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi, also known as Erased follows Satoru Fujinuma who is an average 29 year old with the not so average ability he names, "revival", that would allow Satoru to go back in time to prevent a tragedy from occurring. However when a certain tragedy occurs Satoru is brought back drastically in time in 1988.

I want to say before getting in depth that when shows like Erased are presented to me, one's that have rise in MAL's ranking high and fast, I try my best to avoid the unpredictable hype train. This show was already, in a lot of people minds, top read more

All hail Madhouse! All hail Madhouse! The best studio as far as I'm concerned took another leap in the anime world with adding Death Parade to its resume. Death Parade had the potential to be the ANIME OF THE YEAR in 2015, until Saitama one-punched the shit out of that hope (another Madhouse production). but with further ado let's review Death Parade.

The story was unique and captivating on all aspects that it flashed. The story in 13 episodes raised so many interesting questions, and the premise of these arbiters judging where humans end up in afterlife was thrilling to say the least. The story didn't read more

Angel Beats was one of the earlier shows that I've watched over my ongoing anime viewing days. Angel Beats was one of the shows that I've always seen floating around in recommendations of watch anime to watch but me being very judgmental by anime titles, I avoided Angel Beats because I was never a fan of musical focused anime. With that being said I'm very happy that I got over my anime title phobia and picked up Angel Beats, because it was not what I expected, and overall was a good series to watch.

The story although interesting, never drew me into the show as I read more

Nana (Anime) add (All reviews)
Nana is a show where love is used in every way, shape, and form. Love is used in a manner of romantics, friendship, lust, security, and companionship. Of course with every love story their are breakups, betrayals, and distance between people. Nana does a great job of illustrating this as the story unfolds.

Nana Komatsu (who will be referred to as Hachi) and Nana Osaki are both aboard a train where their path cross and cross again later and they eventually decide to live with each other as fate seems to push them together.

The genre of this anime is slice of life so as the genre read more

Code Geass from top to bottom passed all check marks that make up not just a great anime but a masterpiece.

The goal was simple. Avenge mother and create world peace for the sake of your sister, only it's never that simple. Along the quest for world peace there was a lot of manipulation, deception, twist, and turns that leave you in awe every step of the path.

We have our main protagonist Lelouch Vi Britannia the teenager with the power of geass who plans to overturn Britannia's rule over the Japanese even though Lelouch himself is Britannia. This is what makes the characters so complex, they read more

Out of all slice of life genre anime out there Kokoro Connect has to be one of the best I've ever seen. Having a blend of supernatural elements in a normal everyday life was done uniquely and interesting, and that's why I rated this show so high.

The story is about five friends just living your typical high school life until the antagonist Heartseed appears to intervene in their life of stability. Their friendships are put to the test as their thoughts, actions, and even their bodies are no longer in their control as Heartseed manipulates them for entertainment. This story instantly pulled me in because read more
