Wave, Listen to Me!

I love this show! You know I love unique efforts in anime. And you know I tend to categorize individual anime based on whether the series is driven by its characters, artwork, or story. It’s a rare bonus when the soundtrack for a show plays a big role in any of those factors. It’s an even rarer bonus when purely […]

Trigun

Another great example of late 1990s anime! Beautiful art style, winding storylines that don’t quite fit a single genre (for more reasons than one here), and entertaining characters that scream nostalgia and classics. Trigun is above all entertaining, and has some academically interesting parts as well. It’s somewhere between a masterpiece and a giant mess though, and it’s sometimes difficult […]

Nichijou

Jou-jou-yuujou magi magi kaichou! This whole review could be the translation of that entire second half opening and pretty sufficiently describe this show. Other possibilities include me simply repeating “Omg, what is this?” as I close my mouth previously agape with shock and laugh my head off, tears rolling down my face.

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation

This is not typical isekai. This show is way off the ordinary isekai track. Most isekai shows are subjected, unfairly I believe, to the charge of being very cookie-cutter, sharing too many characteristics, to the point that one seems very much like a copy of the next. Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation definitely does everything it can to buck that label. […]

Tawawa on Monday

Monday is a terrible day of the week isn’t it? It’s disliked worldwide it seems. Boy did one illustrator find a solution with this series! And it has gone on a horni boi rampage ever since.

Remake Our Life!

We reserve a special kind of feeling for regrets, an emotion somewhere between sadness and anger. Sadness because the opportunity is gone, anger because we know things could have been very different. Sometimes the simple fact that others chose a path we didn’t and end up seemingly successful and happy makes the feeling worse. And on top of it all […]

Girlfriend, Girlfriend

This isn’t the kind of harem anime that you meet out in the streets and be like “Hey how you doing? How’s the family?” This is the kind of harem anime that you meet, you look at it, it looks at you, and then it proceeds to chase wildly after you all the way back to your inexpensive residence, whereupon, […]

My Next Life as a Villainess

All routes lead to doom! Our poor protagonist (antagonist?) finds herself reincarnated into an otome game where she’s the villain! In a rarer form of isekai where a girl finds herself transported to a new world, this show is funny and fast-paced with amazing characters and beautiful artwork. Definitely one of my favorites from the 2020 lineup! S2 just wrapped […]
