Welcome to Anteiku!

Anime reviews!!! Let’s relive memories and think new thoughts! There’s never enough good sources for anime reviews! Come and offer your opinions on the shows I review! From gut-reaction to academic criticism and everything between, I welcome it all.

Reviews are not just a playground for academic blather or a way to vent an unvarnished opinion. They are a place to relive memories: memories of beautiful, powerful moments. In this medium, anime, one of the greatest of the modern arts, such memories are the true essence of the power of the world of anime. So read not just for insight or critical thought, but for the sheer joy of remembering your favorite shows.

You’re in a SPOILER MINEFIELD here, so tread carefully. Reviews come after watching the show, so despite my efforts I cannot avoid all spoilers.

Irasshaimase!
