Isekai Cheat Magician
Sometimes average is good. Sometimes average is bad. Isekai Cheat Magician is average and bad.
The world of anime must never lose the kind of beauty embodied in shows like Kyousou Giga.
Don’t Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro
This show knows what it is and doesn’t give a hoot whether you like it or not! But I do like it.
Vermeil in Gold
Vermeil in Gold is a nice little anime about a 600-year old demoness who falls in love with a freshman high school boy, whereupon she proceeds to suck…
RWBY: Ice Queendom
It’s official: RWBY is anime.
More Than a Married Couple, But Not Lovers
I was fully prepared to detest this anime. The premise is ridiculous. I ended up enjoying it. While it’s not the best rom-com ever made, it’s very sweet…
Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie
There is only one great thing about this anime, and the rest is very ordinary. But that one thing is so exceptional I must say I haven’t seen…
Call of the Night
If an anime is pure fun, I’m happy. If an anime is pure fun and tugs at your heart a little, I’m even happier. If an anime is…
Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!
“Put that ass away!”
Star Wars: Visions
Yes it’s anime. Yes it’s Star Wars. Yes it’s good. First and last negative comment about this series: there’s one episode I don’t like. But that’s the extent…
The Ancient Magus’ Bride
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…
Made in Abyss
This anime is extraordinarily brutal and I’m not completely sure why.
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!…
The world of Japanese anime once again edges just a little closer to the world of American industrial entertainment. And I’m beginning to worry about it.
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.…
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…
The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated
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…
Komi Can’t Communicate
This is how anime should be.
Aharen is Indecipherable
If I could write this review in a whisper, it would be very appropriate. Imagine, the text being so quiet that you have to get really close to…
Wonder Egg Priority
A beautifully sad parade of personalities.
One of the few real-world issues I will lament in this forum is the unhappy love of death that occasionally finds its way into Japanese anime. This show,…
Aquatope on White Sand
Does anybody know what an “aquatope” is?
Miss Kuroitsu from the Monster Development Department
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…
We’ve had enough of these essay-length titles! Let’s just use a number for a title!
Ranking of Kings
As Bojji would put it, “Aaa aaa aa aaaaauhaaa!” Or, as Kage would translate for me: I hate this show.
This is one of the finest examples of anime drama I have ever seen.
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…
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…
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…
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…
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…
A very curious anime. And it’s spectacular!
The phrase “short and sweet” was made for this anime. Emphasis on “sweet.”
The Detective is Already Dead
This was bad.
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…
This isn’t the kind of harem that you meet out in the streets and be like “Hey how you doing? How’s the family?” This is the kind of…
Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy
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?
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…
Shiki is a really good vampire story, until suddenly it isn’t.
The Duke of Death and His Maid
Good CGI does exist. And yet that’s not even close to being the best thing about this show.
I’m Standing on a Million Lives
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…
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid
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,…
So I’m a Spider, So What?
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…
This is not harem. This is raging steroid harem.
Aku no Hana
Kono hentai yaro.
What do I think of Shimoneta? I think it’s perhaps one of the stupidest, most shameless, mind-numbingly insane, funniest shows ever made! This show fires off one hilarious…
Land of the Lustrous
A strange and wonderful experience!
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…
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.
