This one felt a little different initially, and after a little research after I completed watching the series, I found why. While this particular production was Japanese, the series originated in Korea. Initially I felt this had promise, but it dwindled down into ordinary characters, subpar story, and decent artwork. Overall disappointed.
This is the greatest anime I’ve ever experienced, without question. There are so, so many things that are great about this series. It transcends this artform. From amazing artwork, to exceptional storyline, to the massive and tasteful swings between the comedic and the utterly heartbreaking, and above all, the magnificent character design and execution, this is a top 5 anime […]
Fun, pretty, artistic, and yuri. And those really, really, REALLY weird faces. Yami to Boushi to Hon to Tabibito is a quick and fun ride through some interesting worlds–via books!–and cute characters. And yes, just a little yuri. Think Alice in Wonderland meets Dr. Who with yuri. This one’s a little lesser-known than some anime, so if you like to […]
What’s with that name? It’s just a big jumble of sounds! But you’re right, it is just a jumble of sounds, like the rumble of a powerful engine on a black sportbike just before it zooms away into countless mysteries and strange encounters with the world of humans. This series has a multitude of characters, most of who are pretty […]
I love the name of this anime. Without a doubt one of the best names I’ve encountered. That and its fame in animedom is why I decided to finally watch it some time back. But this anime does not rank highly on my list. There are too many unnecessary plot twists that attempt to explain every little mystery, and it […]
This is a masterpiece! This is a magnificent mixture of slice of life and rom-com and a little mystery and total cuteness! This show is full of heartwarming moments and beautiful characters. A beautiful opening too. It’s so simple yet so sweet, I looked forward to this every week when it came out. This is the feel-good champion of Fall/Winter […]
I honestly watched this show this year because I knew Chiwa Saito was playing Kahabell (the sadistic knight if you’re not super familiar with the names yet). I have some mixed feelings about it. Anything she touches I’m going to like usually, but if I took her out of it, I still am confused between liking this anime and just […]
Sex. Guns. Revy. Did I mention Revy? While I watched the opening and ending (every episode, very unusual for me) and I kept noting that Revy was so prominently featured–indeed, she’s the only character in the ending sequence–I began to wonder if there was some great secret surrounding her that would be revealed. If you haven’t seen it and plan […]
