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…

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…

If, however, you want to know at a glance whether you want to read this short and non-time consuming manga, come inside. Continue Reading Mirai no Football…

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…

Kenji is a 21 volume manga about martial arts, growing up and taking a journey. I started reading this manga a while ago but it wasn’t complete then. It finally finished recently and I got back into Kenji very easily. Kenji is an addicting adventure romp with enough action to ensnare your interest from beginning to end. Continue Reading Kenji…

Bio-Meat: Nectar maybe a bit shounen but it matures as a story. BM is 12 volumes long. Definitely worth a try because of the addictive story and likeable characters. There’s alot of typical shounen fare but that’s something I enjoy.

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 OVA bases the character’s looks on the manga much more than the series did. The Kurenai series made many changes to the character models, which I actually didn’t know about until I found out about the Kurenai OVA. I haven’t read the Kurenai manga yet but I’ll get to it sometime. Anyway, Kurenai OVA is 2 episodes long and it has a different atmosphere to it than the series.

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.
