Oftentimes people fear that which they don’t know or understand. But sometimes someone comes along who looks for the beauty in the unknown or the mysterious. Such were the creators behind the mystical and beautiful anime named The Ancient Magus’ Bride. Among the many things this anime does very well, the way its writers portray magic is one of the […]
There are two kinds of isekai anime. In the first, the MC is fairly ordinary, and has to struggle and strive to achieve greatness. This is not that! Overlord is the second kind, where the MC is so overwhelmingly powerful that they have zero chance of losing a single conflict. And it’s so much rip-roaring, rocking fun! Through four seasons […]
Sabikui Bisco is one of those wild shounen anime that brings back fun memories of a bygone era in the world of anime. And I really like it. Hang on a second while I crank up my giant crab, and we’ll get started.
Sometimes the beauty of anime surpasses any limits I imagined possible. But one thing is certain: I will never cease to be amazed when those limits are broken anew.
A popular manga and a lot of fanfare don’t always translate to a successful anime. The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated had both and still only turned out mildly interesting.
A beautifully sad parade of personalities.
A little hilarious, a little confusing, a little pretty, a little relatable even, Miss Kuroitsu from the Monster Development Department combines the fantastical with the mundane and does it pretty well.
As Bojji would put it, “Aaa aaa aa aaaaauhaaa!” Or, as Kage would translate for me: I hate this show.
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. […]
Another predictable isekai anime? Really? No Hawk, it’s parody. Oh, it’s parody, you say—well that just makes everything better doesn’t it?
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 […]
Good CGI does exist. And yet that’s not even close to being the best thing about this show.
This could be the sweetest, most ridiculous anime ever made! The name says it all. It’s about a dragon who becomes a maid for Miss Kobayashi! It’s cute, heartfelt, silly, borderline ecchi at times, and so much fun!
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 instantaneous power this show exercised over viewers’ emotions was extraordinary. And while it inevitably ebbed and flowed, it nevertheless created new powerful […]
A strange and wonderful experience!
