We’ve had enough of these essay-length titles! Let’s just use a random number for a title! I guess it’s a random number. If there’s significance to the “86” itself, I didn’t find it in this show. What I did find was an interesting take on mecha, really good artwork, fairly ordinary characters and story, and lots of feels. And one […]
Hige o Soru, Soshite Joshi Kousei o Hirou is another of those modern anime afflicted with a paragraph for a title. I don’t understand how we went from single word titles to “After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took in a High School Student.” You see this extra-long-name thing in the memes all the time now, it’s gotten to such […]
I like this anime for a small handful of reasons. Otherwise it’s just confusing and therefore impossible to like or really even dislike overall.
I took one look at this title and thought: none of these words go together. It sounded enough like music anime that I decided not to watch it during Spring 2021. Most of you are aware of my general dislike for music anime. So this was a no for me initially. Then I saw the rumors, that this was one […]
Jormungand is good.
It’ll make you laugh, it’ll make you cry, it’ll make you cringe! And sometimes, all three at once! Zombie Land Saga is one of the funniest yet emotionally charged combos you’ll ever see. With an amazing cast of characters, pretty artwork, and simple but crazy but effective story, this one will have you on the edge of your seat, sometimes […]
The references were Overt. The comedy was Hilarious. The cringe was Real. The madness was Unabated. The ecchi was Egregious. The language was Gutter. The crass was Unbridled. And the fun was Nonstop! It’s everything I’d expect of KonoSuba’s raging step-sister! step-brother?
I looked forward to this anime as the Spring 2021 season approached, and while my initial enthusiasm wasn’t rewarded completely, I enjoyed this show. It started with a ton of potential, fizzled in the middle amidst a poorly laid out plot, and finished pretty strong by playing to its strengths and not allowing plotlines to devolve into conveniently happy endings. […]
A great series at the pinnacle of a great time in the history of anime! A prototype for all subsequent mecha anime, Neon Genesis Evangelion had a massive impact on the genre and the world of anime. Complex characters, interesting storyline, and my favorite kind of ‘90s art style, this show satisfies on both an entertainment and intellectual level. And […]
That single word translates to “The Way of the Househusband.” And that title pretty much tells you everything you need to know about this short series.
Wow this is one disturbing anime. I’d heard the rumors, so I figured I should watch it and see what all the fuss was about. I found out. The sexual hyper-focus in this series destroys any effort that was put into this work. I can recognize that there are decent points in this anime, but it’s so heavily overshadowed by […]
Boobs, bidets, bikes, and benkyou!
I like Claymore. It’s a bit different and a bit typical all at the same time. Occasionally I talk about how typical can work, how it’s not always a bad thing. Claymore is another good example of this. Dark and very mythical, there’s no big surprises in this one, but it’s fairly entertaining and has some high points. The characters […]
Ascendence. Transcendence. Unknown. Supernatural. Technology. Fear. These things need not have anything in common, but more often than not, for better or worse, the human race considers them related. For long has technology’s advance filled people with dread, less so nowadays, but even as late as 1998, some people feared, or at least were awed by, the rise of the […]
There is such a thing as obsession with death. I hope none of you have ever encountered it, and I hope you never will. The mentality that imagined and created Deadman Wonderland cannot be a happy one. What unhappy view of reality could envision such a horrorscape?
If this was supposed to be a boob show, it wasn’t. If this was supposed to be school action/fantasy, it wasn’t. If this was supposed to be romance, it wasn’t. If this was supposed to drama, comedy, underdog tale, harem, I don’t know, it wasn’t. In short, this show wasn’t much of anything. A little bit of everything poorly done […]
