Rebirth (Anime) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
So, I had watched 6 episodes of this show so far without realizing that this was supposed to be a promotional short for an upcoming TCG to be released some time next month. And here I thought it was a simple comedy slice-of-life show which just happened to include a card game as a device for people to have a good time and some fun. So I had no idea that this was supposed to be promoting this new card game I've never heard of called "Rebirth" and I was just enjoying the anime for its slapstick humour and comedic tropes. The show itself actually read more

People say: Don't judge a book by it's cover. Granbelm says: Don't judge an anime by the synopsis + half of the episodes...

At first glance, the show looks completely unoriginal and uninspiring; a quick cash grab trying to bait fans of more popular genres: magical girl and mecha series into a show which has both of these elements combined into one and placed in a battle royal setting. Granbelm however, proved it's something more. Unfortunately, it only picks up speed in the latter half of the show. If you dropped this series after trying the first few episodes, I don't blame you. It was one read more

If I could rename this show, it would be "Joshikousei no Nichijou".

These aren't your average everyday memes, these are ADVANCED memes. I wouldn't expect the average anime otaku to understand Joshikousei no Mudazukai. You would have to have very high IQ to understand it. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of DAIBUTSU or WASEDA most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Tanaka's AHO outlook, which is deftly woven into her charaterisation- her personal philosophy draws heavily from OMOSHIREONNA, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths read more

Kanata no Astra is pure garbage, but it's the garbage everyone talks about.

The way the show started, I was thinking this was going to be something of "Star Trek the Anime", which in a way that's how the first half of the show was supposed to turn out. Eventually, as with all bad sci-fi shows, it turns out into this weird primordial soup of just too many different sci-fi concepts. It tried too hard and honestly just fell really flat on its face. The writing is boring, art is static and not even Japanese voice acting could save this show.

This series has been airing since early October all the way until the end of June. That's roughly 8 months and eight months is a long time. If there's one thing this series does poorly, it's consistency. Sometimes the series really picks up and you can't wait to watch the next episode, other times watching paint dry would be more exciting.

Story - 7
This is a really long series so I won't go into much detail about the story as it isn't worth my time to write a summary as there would be too much details and things that would need to be discussed to read more

Let me tell you first off, tokyo movie theaters are not cheap!!! $20 for a ticket are you insane?! I'd better be getting my money's worth if I'm paying that much. Like this movie better change my life.

Next I want to let you know that I've never read the source, or heard of this title before watching this movie. So this review is my impression of the movie watching it blind.

Story - 4
SPOILER ALERT
It actually started off really great in my opinion. The premise of a boy who was raised in the wild is not something entirely new but still very interesting. And it read more

I wasn't really expecting much before watching this movie, mainly because I saw the trailer and I thought it was going to be some sappy love story which I've honestly seen my fair share but I'm really glad I actually watched it.

Story - 9
SPOILER ALERT
The story focuses on Mukaimizu Hinako and how she learns to "find her wave". It's about how people need to keep moving forward and learn to stand on their own even through the hardships. There's a lot of symbolism in the movie between riding a wave and the life of a person. The story also touches on motivation, as Hinako struggles read more

This review contains terms/words which are minor spoilers to the gundam universe. Read at your own volition.

Story - 5
If you've thoroughly enjoyed the first season and think you can jump straight into the second season without knowing anything about the gundam universe then you're wrong. Unlike the first season which had a strong focus on war and its effects on people, the second season relies heavily on the viewer knowing about the Universal Century and important events in it.

The show has many unanswered questions for people unfamiliar with UC such as:
How did they rescue Io?
What is the Battle of A Baoa Qu?
What are Zeon Remnants?
What read more

Story - 6
Expect a lot of filler. Romcoms aren't really known for progressing the main story. In a way I guess you can say the filler is the story. If you don't like it then don't watch.

Art - 5
Art is a step down from the manga, which is to be expected since you can't compare animating several still frames to drawing a few pages, quality drop is to be expected, but it's really evident in this series. It looks and feels generic. Nothing stands out.

Sound - 4
Generic, I feel like I've already heard it before despite never hearing it. It sounds like any other soundtrack read more

Preliminary
The most underrated anime this season, a really enjoyable lighthearted comedy.

I have no idea why this show is actually so low-rated. It's honestly one of the best shows airing right now. I actually feel sad if you miss out on this masterpiece. Which doesn't make sense because this show is all about otaku life and something I thought most anime fans would be able to relate to: figures and merchandise! A real diamond in the rough, this show is better than any of the other trash comedies airing right now. In these times where the anime industry is dominated with isekai plots and shounen giants, read more
