Kingdom (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Kingdom is one of the few manga series that earned a score of 10/10 for me.

The reason why Kingdom is so good is because it meets a lot of needed criteria of what makes a profound battle adventure series. In this case, it is adventure through campaigns, wars & politics. Kingdom has a solid foundation when it comes to introducing the main character and building them up to eventually reach their goal through gradual progression. Another thing is introducing a massive world while expanding upon it, as if there is a sense of exploration. Aside from those, many themes such as slavery, dreams, personal read more

This review will mostly cover the aspects of what makes Claymore a battle manga, noting the good and the bad. I will give a quick rundown of my thoughts on the story, art and characters.

Story: It's not too out of the norm and we've seen many other series with similar structured story, it's good enough to progress for the sake of the series. 7/10.

Art: Not in terms of base character models within Claymores since a lot of them just look too similar to really differentiate. Also, the landscapes were a bit generic and the male character models were quite off most of the times. However, read more

Goda strikes again. I can't express in words of how amazing this movie is. All I have to say is go watch it for yourself.

For this review it will be broken down into four parts: Music, Animation, Characters and Story.

Music:
If you watched the trailers, you know that two tracks of Avril Lavigne would be played in the movie but you won't hear that until the credit rolls. First half was "How You Remind Me" and then "Bad Reputation" played after that. The original soundtrack was brilliant. It was different while at the same time maintaining that One Piece feel we all love; high tension read more

Toriko (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Definitely one of the best Shonen battle series you can find. There are plenty of Shonen manga to read out there, so why Toriko? Here is why.

We are introduced to our title character Toriko, Bishokuya AKA Gourmet Hunter. Toriko is required to hunt down his target for his assignment. This is the how the story goes about at a basic level, Toriko finds an ingredient he wants to go after, and than goes to eat it to fulfill his full course menu. From this, you get the impression that the manga is just some dull story about eating.

We are introduced to "Capture Level" which is read more

Preliminary
It's said to be the greatest manga, all the elements you love in a series is all in the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece, left by a legendary pirate mangaka named Eiichiro Oda. Ever since 1997, the new era of manga began, competing to take the number one spot of Shonen Jump, so far, none has yet to step a foot in it's path.

Once I did, I asked myself why didn't I pick the series up earlier. I truly feel that this is the best Shonen series ever made if we were to review it objectively.

Anyway, to the actual review:

One Piece initially read more

Regarding all the hype this anime has, it doesn't even live up to the expectation not one bit. It's the perfect anime to piss off your peers if they ever want to get into anime or a well-written fiction in general. I have to say that this is the worst anime I've ever watched, yes even worse than Tite Kubo's trolling in Bleach. I was ready to drop the series after episode 4 but forced myself to finish the series to give a fair review of it. Even after watching the ending, which determines the true quality if the series is really good or bad. read more
