Yumekui Merry is 13 episodes long. After I’d seen the first episode, I was going to drop it. Yumekui just wasn’t entertaining, enjoyable or interesting to me. For some reason, I decided to continue, I kept thinking “Well, it can only get better, right?” No, it never offers more than what you’d expect from it after watching the first episode. Don’t get me wrong, Yumekui isn’t a bad anime but it’s not the kind of anime I like. I knew this when I tried watching Shakugan no Shana because many people seem to like it, only to find how annoyingly bad and boring it was to me. Yumekui is the same as Shakugan. If you’ve seen Shakugan, you’ll feel like you’ve seen Yumekui. Continue Reading Yumekui Merry is a 13 episode nightmare…

Come in my room, I've got candy!

Level E was one of the manga I read in my earlier years. It was one of the funniest manga I had read at that time and definitely high on my favorites list. When I took a look at the Winter Season’s chart, I was shocked to see Level E. Shocked, excited and happy to know that Level E was finally going to get some love. It was the anime that stood out for me in the Winter 2011 chart. Level E definitely did not disappoint me but it couldn’t exceed my expectations. Continue Reading Level E on the big screen…

Yes Ma'am!

What is a guilty pleasure? It’s something you(or I) may like or take pleasure in but wouldn’t want others to know. It’s something we like, though it goes against our ethos. It’s something we are ashamed to like. Star Driver is all of that and more. It’s 25 episodes long and bears many trademarks of the mecha and shounen genres. Continue Reading Star Driver is the definition of a guilty pleasure…

Akikan! means “empty can”

Melon Sodas these days are pretty sexy

Akikan! is a 12 episode anime centered around a harem plot. Kakeru, the main character is a hobbyist who collects cans…one day he drinks from a melon soda can but to his surprise…THE CAN TURNS INTO A HUMAN. Huh? Yea, the first episode doesn’t really make sense…then again, the anime itself barely made much sense either. Something about cans fighting each other and something…I don’t remember much about this anime. It was pretty forgettable. I guess empty can can also mean empty memories.

Kurenai the series shows its serious side

You better be, you jerk!

Kurenai (Kure-nai) feels like a serious show and indeed it is. Yet, there are elements of the story that I just can’t take seriously. Kurenai starts off strong and transitions into a good middle ground but somehow fails the move towards the end. The ending is what left a sour taste and something which could have been done correctly and made Kurenai an anime to remember. The ending is what drags Kurenai down into the “forgettable” lane and simply something I can’t take seriously. I guess that’s my only gripe with Kurenai.

The Sacred Blacksmith was a great letdown

Was fanservice the only reason to watch The Sacred Blacksmith?

The Sacred Blacksmith seems like it would be great just from the name alone. Yet, it includes well done art and animations with some great action scenes. Why, then, was I entirely unimpressed and left with a bitter aftertaste? Continue Reading The Sacred Blacksmith was a great letdown…

White!

Dokuro-chan has 8 episodes and Dokuro-chan 2 has 4. Each episode is only 13 minutes long so this is a relatively short series. Both seasons are practically the same so I’ve decided to do just one review for both. I’d just like to warn you that some of the pictures are extremely ecchi and most likely NSFW.

Kurogane no Linebarrels pulls off annoying splendidly

come at me, bro

Kurogane no Linebarrels, also known as Linebarrels of Iron is the most annoying anime I’ve seen yet. I don’t know what exactly kept me going but somehow I got passed the most annoying part of KuroLine, the beginning. KuroLine isn’t exactly a bad anime but there are situations and characters that will make you rage. The beginning was concentrated rage content which somehow plays into the story later on. Continue Reading Kurogane no Linebarrels pulls off annoying splendidly…

Saki, a new reason to play mahjong

Rain+Uniform=Fanbase

I’m going to try a different way of reviewing Saki.

Saki is about having as many female characters as possible while including what could be construed as yuri or yuri-ish every now and then just to keep you on your toes… It’s about learning to love Mahjong and stealing glances at Nodoka’s serious face while she thinks. Saki has plenty of arch-types and plenty of fanservice. Continue Reading Saki, a new reason to play mahjong…
