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.

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.

Pool scene in the beginning...genius!

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.

Rattle of face bending legend

Beelzebub (Hirotta Akachan wa Daimaou!?) is an ova which is 30 minutes long and typical shounen fare without the humor. I don’t know if it’s whether I’ve already read the manga and the fact that I knew everything that was coming or simply that the anime failed on the comedic front. Beelzebub doesn’t fail to deliver the copious amounts of unrealistic violence, though, which could be good or bad depending on your view and viewing mood.

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.
