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. […]

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 […]

To Your Eternity

Few of us will ever experience what it feels like to fall in love at first sight. But here, in To Your Eternity, I think we all got just a little glimpse of what that feels like.

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?

Jouran: The Princess of Snow and Blood

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. […]

Chivalry of a Failed Knight

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 […]

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan

Youkai! Anime is full of these traditional Japanese legends! From creatures like the nine-tailed kitsune to kappa to bakeneko to yuuki onna, so many of these mythical creatures have appeared in many different anime in as many different forms and roles. Often we don’t even realize they’re youkai! And that’s what makes it fun! Whether you’re a youkai enthusiast or […]
