One Punch Man. Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (Reborn!) Katekyo Hitman Reborn is an outstandingly well made anime.

Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (Reborn!)

I definitely recommend that you watch it if comedy and action applies to your genre of choice. At first glance, Katekyo Hitman Reborn may seem boring. The major flaw of the anime is that it absolutely misleads you, and it completely deceives you into either a) dropping the anime or b) thinking the anime is lame, when it isn't! The first 20 episodes may mislead you to drop the anime, just like it misled me, because of its fillerlike episodes.

You will most likely tell yourself "Wow, this is really lame. D.Gray-man. Themes surrounding exorcists and demons have been treated in previously in other works, and D.Gray-man revolves around such topic.


What makes this anime different, is that it takes the liberty to slightly adjust such theme to match the setting, and also make an arguably more intriguing story. With the recent announcement of the upcoming sequel of D.Gray-man, people may wonder whether this battle shōnen is worth their time, and in this case it is, but only to a certain extent, as several crucial elements of a battle shōnen were executed in a lackluster manner. Not to mention the presence of some very lackluster characters. ~Story~ Tonagura! Ever wanted to find a good rom-com anime that'll make you think, "Hey!


That was probably one of the best anime I've ever watched, sad to see that there's no season 2 of it," well look no further, because you won't be definitely thinking that after you've seen this anime. Story: 5/10 Barely any story, it was just basically a "Hey, that happened so let's add on to that! " type anime. It wasn't done that badly, though. Art: 7/10. NHK ni Youkoso! (Welcome to the N.H.K.) Welcome to the N.H.K. is the story of a 22-year-old hikikomori/NEET named Satou Tatsuhiro.

Zero no Tsukaima (The Familiar of Zero) Zero no Tsukaima-- The Familiar of Zero.

Zero no Tsukaima (The Familiar of Zero)

With a badass name like that, what could go wrong? Awesome action with a really nice romance subplot, now that's what I like in anime. Which isn't what Zero no Tsukaima has. At. School Rumble. This review is for the entire School Rumble series.That includes both seasons and all of the OVAs.

School Rumble

I don’t believe in dividing up series by seasons and I firmly believe series should be treated as a whole and therefore rated and reviewed, and judged in the same manner. School Rumble is basically the story of a love triangle. The hyper, slow-witted, dense and yet extremely nice and lovable character Tsukamoto Tenma is in love with her strange and seemingly dull classmate Karasuma Oji and at the same time the misunderstood delinquent Harima Kenji is madly in love with Tsukamoto Tenma to the point that he has been transformed into a new man because of it. The series best fits in the comedy genre and anytime you feel the story is about to take a serious turn, it swings back to its comedic nature faster than you can blink.

The characters are probably the best part of this series. The Japanese voice acting is absolutely fantastic and the voices match the characters well without exception. Air Gear. Air Gear is one of those anime shows that you will either love to death or be turned away from it by its weird style.

Air Gear

Its should I put it, "open," in a way like Tenjou Tenje is. The girls are revealing, the main character, Ikki, has no shame (as this is shown by him taking a dump in front of EVERYONE while a skating match is going on). Nevertheless, if you enjoy this kind of humor or can get by it, Air Gear shapes up to be a good introduction anime from its manga counterpart. The story is relatively the same, as with many other sport anime shows. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (When They Cry) Higurashi epitomizes how you should never judge something by its cover.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (When They Cry)

At first glance, it looks like a simple, generic harem series or a lame, cliched romance. This anime, however, is nothing short of genius. The whole setting, atmosphere, and mood are incredibly well executed. The plot may seem simple at first, a new kid moving to a strange, new town and meeting new friends. Beneath the exterior appearance of this seemingly tame series, however, lies a dark story of murder, violence, and mystery. Story: I can confidently say that the story/plot is the strongest aspect of this series. Art/Animation: If there is one reason why I did not give this series a 10, then it is because of the art and animation. Sound: The voice acting in this series is amazing. Characters: After the initial shock of their mental instability, the cast of characters are extremely well written and developed. Overall an excellent show. XxxHOLiC. Prepare to be taken on a tour de force through the world of the supernatural.


Or maybe just a regular tour. I wouldn't know. Having only recently experienced the genre of "supernatural" anime, xxxHOLiC (hereby referred to as simply "Holic") was a breath of fresh air from my usual action/fantasy fare. The story behind Holic is intriguing and interesting, revolving around spirits, ghosts, and the very strange. Geared towards an older and more sophisticated audience, there's little action, but loads of thought-provoking and amazingly insightful dialogue.

Gintama. Over the years there have been a multitude of comedy shows that have graced our TV screens, from the surreal stylings of Monty Python and sarcastic wit of Blackadder, to the sci-fi tomfoolery of Red Dwarf and the strange antics of The Fast Show.


There are numerous notable series that have taken their rightful places in our DVD collections, and in an age where comedians are treated like rock stars, maybe it's fate that comedy anime would also come of age. It's strange to say this, but humour has never been a strong department for the medium, partly because of the cultural differences between East and West, but mainly because the majority of anime comedies rely more on parody than anything else. The problem with this is that quite often the viewer is left without a frame of reference, so the humour simply goes over their heads. Hellsing. On the technical side of things, Hellsing has major major issues. Gonzo is famous for prioritizing its projects from lavish budgets to zippo budget. Guess which one Hellsing got? Character designs are hideous outside of the main cast, backgrounds are so bland and unappealing that it’s almost impossible to tell where you are at any given moment, I could go on but just know that Hellsing is often painful to watch, color choice being its largest detriment.

The palette in Hellsing produces a plastic, bile-colored result with skin tones on some characters that makes humans look less vivid than the undead. The folksy rock-metal music is unique, but I don’t care for how it’s used, or should I say, not used. The dub of Hellsing has an obligation to the English language that the Japanese does not: British accents, a double-edged sword with Integra and Walter on the sharp side, far too many awful extras on the dull side and K.T. Fate/Zero. Type-Moon have made a habit of finding success with their dark blend of magic and supernatural elements in modern day settings, but with the release of the Fate/Stay Night visual novel on the PC in 2004, the developer seemed to have found its flagship title.

Unfortunately things never really work out the way people expect, and while Studio Deen's 2006 anime adaptation of the "Fate" storyline was well received by fans, many who were unfamiliar with the source material found it all a bit ... juvenile. At the end of 2006 the developer began collaborating with Nitroplus in order to create a prequel light novel series, but this time the story was penned by the relatively unknown Urobuchi Gen (with Type-Moon co-founder Takeuchi Takashi providing illustrations).

Set ten years before the events in the visual novel, Fate/Zero chronicles the events leading up to and during the fourth Holy Grail War in Fuyuki City, Japan - the same place where the battle will be held in Fate/Stay Night. Fate/stay night. Just finished this show a couple of moments ago, the hype I got before watching this was IMENSE, but after sitting trough it all I can definitely see where it comes from... for the better and the worse. I will refrain myself from commenting on the show before I give my view on specific issues. I will try my best to refrain myself from spoilers, but rest assured, some will exist SO if you didn`t watch it yet you are better jumping straight to my conclusion. --------------------- Animation --------------------- In simple words it’s GORGEOUS.

If you take into account it’s from 2006 it gets even better, surely nothing that year can get remotely close to it, and even for today standard’s it is top notch, specially on the color pallet department. The backgrounds, the CGI, the still animations, the fight sequences... everything clicks beautifully, but what really shines are the character designs and the color employed on the scenes. Shakugan no Shana (Shakugan no Shana: Season I) I will say at the beginning of this anime i did feel a little hopeless. The anime imposes a scary thought into your head, what if i flicker out? What if no one REMEMBERS me?

That is the main theme of this anime. Not whether or not you existed, but whether or not you are remembered. This is a story about loving someone who isn't necessarily human, but human to you. Shuffle! Ichigo 100% (Strawberry 100%) Never thought I'd be writing a review for the Ecchi genre.

Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto (Star Driver) Adaptations are becoming a bit of a thorny issue in anime these days, which is a bit odd considering how many are produced every year. The constant conversion of stories from other media is a pretty lucrative business as there's already an established market for the end product and its merchandise, regardless of how good the show actually is.

Like anything in life though, there's a price to pay, and there are increasing concerns about the impact adaptations are having on original works. MM! Bakuman. 'Bakuman.'
