I’ve received the unique blogger award from Shadowcat99 and I’m very grateful! Thank you very much! I told Shadow cat that I received this award before but I was just confused with the lovely blog award so let’s answer the questions! The Rules (copy pasted) Display Award Thank the person who nominated you, and post a … Continue reading I Am Now A Unique Blogger, I’ve Got An Award To Prove it! YEAH!
December has been a fairly busy month for me so I haven’t watched a lot of shows, I’ve also been catching up with classic films which I’ve missed. Nether the less there are some great shows here so I hope you guys find something you might like! I hope this post will give you some … Continue reading What I Watched In December (Recommendations and Reviews of Anime)
Neon Genesis Evangelion is 26 Episodes Long, and there are five more films after it. That’s 26 + 5 which equals 31, and how many days are there in January? Yes 31! So in other words this entire month will be focussed on reviewing every episode of Evangelion as well as the films. If you … Continue reading Announcing Evangelion Month! (January)
The dialogue in this game isn’t really realistic however they’re believable enough to not really matter in the end. I like how easy it is to follow every girl except Monika and how paying attention to their dialogue really helps when creating something to appeal to them. Each moment in the game felt really great … Continue reading Doki Doki Literature Club – Thoughts On Gameplay
In my previous post about this show I talked a lot about the choices presented and I’ll now talk about my general thoughts and ideas as well as the experience of my first play through. Read the previous post first and of course beware of spoilers. Find the first part here. Now that I’ve gone … Continue reading My Experience With Doki Doki Literature Club – Spoilers
One year has passed since I started writing my blog, pretty cool right? I never thought there would even be a blogging community when I started but it’s nice that you guys took the time to read and pay attention to my work. Thank you! Starting my blog on the 27th of December 2016 is … Continue reading 1 Year of Anime Blogging! + What’s going on in 2018?
Today I want to focus on something fun and good, since I don’t want to leave this 12 day challenge with a sad list of the worst shows of 2017, also it’s Christmas! Hope you all had a good time, since nobody bothers to read blogs on Christmas right? I don’t really know but I … Continue reading Favourite Anime Art Style! – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 12
Whilst there were a lot of good shows this year there was a lot more bad ones and I think it’s still important to talk about them, since how can things get better if you don’t explain why they fail? After making my list of honourable mentions for yesterday it only makes sense that I … Continue reading The Worst Anime of 2017! Honourable Mentions – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 11
Before talking about my favourite shows released in 2017 I want to go through some honourable mentions, I think all these shows were good however not good enough to get onto the main list! As some anime won’t have finished by the time this challenge is over the best anime post will be in 2018. … Continue reading Best Anime of 2017! Honourable Mentions – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 10
Let’s actually talk about Christmas this time! I had plans to discuss a lot of Christmas shows this month by googling shows to watch at Christmas but I ran into one huge problem: none of them were about Christmas except the ones that were bad. Most of them just couldn’t hook me very well at … Continue reading Christmas Anime – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 9
One of the posts that I look back on most frequently is something I made at the start of the year called “Where I’m going in 2017”, in which I set myself goals to try and achieve before 2018 starts or just ideas that I’d like to do. What really interested me was the change … Continue reading School Days – A rant that never came – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 8
Just in case you missed yesterday’s post, I set up a challenge for myself where I had to write a piece about squid girl which is better than what I wrote about the start of the year. This time I wanted to set myself a limited amount of time to do so to both add … Continue reading Squid Girl Challenge – 12 Days Of Anime Christmas Day 7
Squid Girl used to be one of my favourite anime’s, and I wanted to write my first blog post explaining why, needless to say that never happened because I found it such a struggle to write. The best I ever got to describing my thoughts was a few paragraphs in a notebook I happened to … Continue reading Looking Back On Squid Girl – 12 Days Of Anime Christmas Day 6
Look at that! A Wallpaper from my post is on the main screen of the anime tag for everyone to see! I’ve got no idea why the WordPress algorithm put it there but I’m glad it did. Anime should be shown to be just for one day alongside celebrities like rap monster! Oh well it’s … Continue reading My Anime List – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 5
One of my favourite films I watched this year was the K-on movie, where the cast went on an end of year trip to London! And it was really great to see the characters in a city I’ve visited often, since it’s a pretty nice place! One thing that I forgot before the film started … Continue reading K-On! In London! – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 4
Sorry about the dark and difficult themes discussed on the previous day, at least for day ten we’re covering a fun light hearted subject: Identify theft! Oh wait… One of my favourite parts of the year was binge reading a manga called pretty face. Basically a guy is in a terrible bus crash and is … Continue reading Identity Theft – 12 days of anime Christmas day 3
Welcome to the second day of the 12 days of anime Christmas! It’s a post series where I talk about some of the most interesting things or best moments from the anime I watched in 2017 to celebrate the year! Luckily there happens to be 12 months in a year and 12 days of Christmas … Continue reading The Casca Misconception – 12 Days Of Anime Christmas Day 2
I may discuss terrible and twisted topics in the next upcoming 12 days however I wanted to set today aside to remember what this whole challenge is all about, um so friendship I guess. Friendship in the midst of terrible and twisted things, only by sheer coincidence. In the face of horrific danger and a … Continue reading A Friends Sacrifice in Kaiji – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 1
In this visual novel you meet four different high school girls who basically force you to join their club: Sayuri, Natsuki, Yuri and Monika. They then make you write a poem every night and the game varies depending on who your poem appeals too and what options you chose within the day. The way the … Continue reading Doki Doki Literature Club And The Controlling Nature Of Free Will
One of my favourite anime shows is watamote, and I enjoy its comedy and protagonist. Luckily for us Watamote’s OP, unfortunately named “No matter how I look at it, it’s your fault I’m not popular”, has a lot of intrigue I’m going to explore today similar to my recent post talking about Kaiji. Anime OP’s … Continue reading Watamote – Fall in love. Be Popular.
Berserk's opening is brilliant and since I've been discussing several OP's recently I thought I'd talk about it! Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocQ6PDiP014 A claim that people often make is that the OP doesn't fit in with the rest of the show and I couldn't disagree more. To me the music is hype to represent all … Continue reading Berserk – Put Your Grasses On, waiting for so long
The economics of spice and wolf’s silver devaluation scheme is difficult to get your head around, and the fact that it took me so long to find an answer makes me feel like writing a post for other people who might have been just as clueless as me. Who’s Responsible for the Scheme and What … Continue reading Spice and Wolf: Economics of the Silver Coin Scheme
This post series really doesn’t need to be as long as it currently is, and in fact you may be able to argue that this is the genre which needs the least parts since it has very little to talk about, but the fact that the genre feels like such an anomaly compared to all … Continue reading Anime Harems – How They Hook YOU! (Part 11)
In November I didn’t watch nearly as much anime as other months however I completed everything on this list and shows like hajime no ippo are really long! Hajime No Ippo This series is the best sports anime I’ve ever seen and deserves a lot of praise for getting me interested in a sport I … Continue reading What I watched In November – Recommendations and Reviews For Anime!
It’s the last episode of Shiki and to celebrate with making this the most thorough and long review of Shiki possible I’ll start talking about the dub. It sucks what a surprise. There are a lot of side characters in this show and I’d understand if they were bad however the appearances from main characters … Continue reading Shiki – The Forgotten Episodes Finale
The title of “Shiki specials” can be deceiving on my anime list because these episodes are just ones that didn’t air, ones that were forgotten, kind of. Before discussing the episode (20.5) I’ll have to give a spoiler warning because this episode actually destroys one of the most ambiguous parts of the show so if … Continue reading Shiki – The Forgotten Episodes
In a similar style to Mother's Basement's "what's in an OP?" series I've always wanted to talk about anime openings and endings and now here's my chance with a really brilliant song which is near and dear to my heart: Mirai wa bokura no te no naka. Have a listen to the OP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7myzgxz9nI And Here's … Continue reading Kaiji – The Future Is In Our Hands
There’s more than a few shows this season which has a premise I’m really interested in yet delivers it in a really terrible way which I don’t enjoy. Ousama game is a classic idea of something where the story is much better in your head than put into anime. So a class of people each … Continue reading My Fall 2017 Anime Season Is Completely Empty: Kings Game 
The Shiki Diaries - 01/11/17 5:06 For the last couple of weeks in October I reviewed every episode of Shiki and detailed the experience thoroughly, so since I structured this in a diary type format I thought it’d be fun to release the entire thing in potential the longest and most thorough anime review you’ve … Continue reading The Shiki Diaries [1-22]
I’ve detailed my criticisms of the harem genre to a large extent over the previous parts, however I’ve not ever really said what I’d so about it or how I’d fix it if I was a part of the anime industry and actually had a say in the production of shows. So let’s talk about … Continue reading Anime Harems – The Genre is stagnant, what do? (Part 10)
Let’s talk about two sequels that I’ve seen the first few seasons of and aren’t watching this time because of dislike or simple disinterest: Food Wars and Himouto Umaru Chan-R. There is a really sad and tragic reason for why I’m not continuing food wars and it’s because of season 2, which sucked, not initially … Continue reading My Fall 2017 Anime Season Is Completely Empty: Sequels 
Hajime No Ippo has some of the most well written and introduced side characters I’ve ever seen in an anime. Side characters are difficult to implement perfectly however Ippo comes close by creating a lovable cast and having interesting antagonists (not villains) which have brilliant traits and backstories, making them interesting enough to be worth … Continue reading Great Ippo Characters: Takamura, Takemura and Hiroko
Calling something terrifying often means that it’s scary and horrible to sit through, that it’s painful and difficult to watch. Perfect Blue isn’t like this, the ideas and events that happen are terrifying to think about without making you actually feel bad or paranoid for watching. It’s about mental illness and the horrible side effects … Continue reading Perfect Blue Is Terrifying
People seem very surprised when they hear that I love Ponyo but not Spirited Away. Not that I hate spirited away it’s just not nearly as good in my opinion. So let me point out the key differences which make one film so much better than the other. The settings Ponyo is set on a … Continue reading Why I loved Ponyo In Complete Contrast To Spirited Away
Black clover, the new popular shounen anime set to take the world by storm just like previous successes like bleach and fairy tail isn’t something I enjoy, who’d be surprised? It’s a lot more accepted to dislike this show more than the previous discussed because it really isn’t that good and MAL agrees: A 6.69 … Continue reading My Fall 2017 Anime Season Is Completely Empty: Black Clover 
Once you’ve completed Kaiji part one and two you probably feel in doubt whether you should continue with the manga, since kaiji ended sort of weirdly and the 2nd season wasn’t as good as the first, let me explain why. The first part of the season is within a forced labour camp after the fallout … Continue reading The End Of Kaiji And Should You Continue The Manga?
I had high hopes for this movie coming from studio Ghibli and my track record with them however I came out having enjoyed it, overall disappointed. And whilst I can dissect the themes which created my disappointment and how they artistically contribute to a greater message or value I’d much rather talk about why the … Continue reading Ghibli’s Failed Romance: The Ocean Waves / Umi Ga Kikoeru
I really don’t like this current season of anime, and as a way to increase my output of talking about ongoing shows I’ve decided to explain my perspective of the current popular shows (except for one) to show why I hate the discussion currently going on. This time let’s talk about The Ancient Magus’ Bride, … Continue reading My Fall 2017 Anime Season Is Completely Empty: Mahoustukai No Yome 
I really enjoyed this show from beginning to end. The anime features short skits from a range of couples in a school to present comedic love stories for (almost) every stage in a relationship, making the school feel more integrated and realised than many other shows I’ve seen. Adapting a series from a 4-koma manga … Continue reading Tsurezure Children Is A Great High School Rom-Com!
I watched a tonne of anime in October and have released a lot of posts about those shows already, so instead of saying a little about the show I’m just going to link to the relevant post at the end! I hope you’re able to find some good recommendations within this list! Also sorry for … Continue reading What I Watched In October (Reviews and Recommendations For Anime!)
The Final Hunt 25/10/17 3:48 PM The sun sets on Sotoba village and I felt an immense worry for what would happen, since the vampires are now safer. This happens as soon as Seishin runs away so Sunako immediately gets up and starts looking around, which was sad in my opinion. I thought it would … Continue reading Shiki – The Final Hunt 
Twenty First Slaughter – 25/10/17 2:46 PM As far as I’m concerned this may as well have been the last episode since it seemed to tie up every loose end very nicely. The few points that were left hanging can easily be explained or is best left to interpretation in my opinion. So this will … Continue reading Shiki – Slaughter 
Twenteith Mourning – 25/10/17 1:14 PM At the start of the episode I found myself thinking that at the shows current pace the show would need to do a whole lot of murdering to resolve the plot. And it certainly didn’t disappoint. In fact the episode starts with a vampire’s eyes exploding due to exposure … Continue reading Shiki – Mourning 
Nineteenth Coffin - 23/10/17 6:51 PM The episode opens where we left off at Chizuru’s death. Toshio uses this moment to rally the villagers and cause them to go on a hunt for the vampires. I see people rooting for the Shiki or calling the humans equaly bad but this is obviously incorrect. The vampires … Continue reading Shiki – Coffin 
Eighteenth Night - 23/10/17 12:44 PM I think this episode was the best yet because everything I wanted to happen from the start took place here, and it was great. But I’m getting ahead of myself; the introduction was still interesting for its own reasons even if it didn’t have the pay off at the … Continue reading Shiki – Night 
Seventeenth Killing Spirit - 23/10/17 11:37 AM This episode didn’t reveal the plan I wanted to see, I sure do hope the plan involved Toshio getting bitten and becoming subservient to the vampires though, because it happened. At the start of the episode Toshio said the plan was to wait until it looked like the … Continue reading Shiki – Killing Spirit 
Sixteenth Skull - 23/10/17 10:04 AM This episode was great, not only because my pre-determined wants happened but because they happened in interesting ways which are promising for the future and side character involved heavily involved with the plot yet not given much attention. Sunako, the child vampire, was one of these people in particular … Continue reading Shiki – Skull 
Fifteenth Deceit - 22/10/17 9:28 PM Tohru puts flowers out in front of Yuuki’s grave to mourn his death, this doesn’t compensate for his actions but is a sad touch to the show, even if the moment is wasted in a confusing way at the end of the episode. After Toshio murdering the Shiki Seishin … Continue reading Shiki – Deceit 
Fourteenth Death – 22/10/17 8:31 PM Last episode really was a tragedy and this episode needed to accomplish a lot to fix it. I wanted more characters I knew in situations I could enjoy, a faster paced story with more advancement of the plot and just things that were actually interesting, that last one is … Continue reading Shiki – Death 
Thirteenth Tragedy – 22/10/17 7:32 PM This episode was the worst episode so far and probably the only episode of Shiki I would rate a score of 5 or less. Essentially everything which happened was something we either knew already or didn’t care about, and it’s because of the emotional value the show tried to … Continue reading Shiki – Tragedy 
Twelfth Decay – 21/10/17 9:37 PM I’m writing this the day after I watched the episode so if this is the worst one that explains it. I mentioned to my mum today that I was watching a show about vampires and she was very concerned about it having violence against women. Not against everyone, just … Continue reading Shiki – Decay 
Eleventh Slaughter - 21/10/17 8:30 PM Most episodes of Shiki are enjoyable to watch and just think about even if they only really focussed on one thing in particular. What made this episode so interesting was the fact that they seemingly introduced one character, explained what her purpose and ideas were, have the rest of … Continue reading Shiki – Slaughter 
Tenth Mourning – 19/10/17 8:18 PM There was something about this episode which made the vampires feel a whole lot less villainous than they used to be and that’s done through showing us the story from their perspective, they’re really evil but I’ve ended up liking some of the vampires, which is something that I … Continue reading Shiki – Mourning 
Ninth Coffin – 19/10/17 7:25 PM A huge issue which detracts from this show is its slow pacing and this puts many people off and makes them either drop or put it on hold. To be honest I’d much rather the show be faster paced but there’s a lot of good things the show has … Continue reading Shiki – Coffin 
Eighth Night – 19/10/17 5:39 PM After the previous thrilling episode where everything started coming together to form a narrative more focussed on the threats instead of reactions to deaths I wanted this momentum to continue into the next episode and well, this sort of happened. Whilst the characters made progressions to come to the … Continue reading Shiki – Night 
Seventh Killing Spirit – 18/10/17 8:17 This show is getting a whole lot better and I really love the direction the series is headed. It’s not going to be scary but it’s going to be really interesting and entertaining anyway. Doing the three episode rule showed me that the series would be something I’d like … Continue reading Shiki – Killing Spirit 
Sixth Skull – 18/10/17 7:19 PM Wow I really loved this episode because everything I’ve been saying and re-iterating finally seems to be happening. Let’s talk about why this episode was really exciting to watch! We opened with a shot of Megumi retrieving her ripped post card from Yuuki and it’s sad because it seems … Continue reading Shiki – Skull 
Fifth Deceit – 18/10/17 4:54 PM After scheduling the previous five posts earlier today I noticed that I’d made a few mistakes whilst watching the previous episodes. The first mistake was the conditions I was watching the show in, either broad daylight or with the lights on too much. It’s not as spooky this way, … Continue reading Shiki – Deceit 
Fourth Death – 18/10/17 9:55 AM Before every episode I talk about what I want to happen in the episode. This time I actually wanted to be made to care about the bad guys and what they do, care more about the characters already introduced and most importantly I wanted the show to build up … Continue reading Shiki – Fourth Death 
Third Tragedy – 8:22 AM 18/10/17 I stayed very calm and normal throughout this episode, this show seems pretty calm really with all the deaths only being seemingly natural. Before watching I wanted to see new plot points occur which shed light on the mystery, the issue was from the previous episode was that the … Continue reading Shiki – Third Tragedy 
Second Decay – 17/10/17 9:03 PM Before watching I set up some guidelines I didn’t want to see in the video. I didn’t want them to pay attention to the previous death because it’s horror and we suspect that kind of thing, I also didn’t want to see a bunch of police on the scene … Continue reading Shiki – Second Decay 
First Blood – 17/10/17 7:40 PM Before watching the episode I had a few points in my head to look out for, the first being jump scares. If there were any, and this is true for a lot of early episodes I would give up this project and change to something else, jump scares aren’t … Continue reading Shiki – First Blood 
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
I watched Ponyo a while ago and I loved it! It was an enjoyable, fun ride of the movie with a backdrop of interesting themes I could appreciate. It’s a great film which is easy to watch and I recommend it to every anime fan and any movie fan who likes studio Ghibli. This is … Continue reading Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea Is An Amazing Film
I’ve not being enjoying the current Fall 2017 anime season. I just couldn’t find an anime I found interesting or better than a 5/10. Then I watched an older anime whose premise and ideas are the most terrible thing to me, whose genre I tend to shy away from and aesthetic I tend to dislike, … Continue reading Hajime No Ippo And The Benefits Of Impeccable Characterisation
I just finished Inuyashiki and it was a brilliant episode of two half’s and I highly recommend you watch it before I presume to spoil it in its entirety! Whilst we can sympathise with the dad whose name isn’t mentioned I’m pretty sure (It’s Inuyashiki by the way) it takes us a while to want … Continue reading Inuyashiki Was An Amazing Tale Of Two Parts! (Episode 1)
The shows don’t tell rule is a standard for good writing, especially in media like films. Since I’ve been on a bit of a film binge recently I’ve noticed a few things that have made the show don’t tell rule a little more complex in my mind to the point that I consider it highly … Continue reading The Show Don’t Tell Rule is not Perfect
The rehabilitation facility of Evil or Live is completely stupid. Not that I hated the episode but so much social commentary about internet addiction was lost through making the main character correct in his analysis, the idea that the rehabilitation facility is hell. Believe it or not facilities to treat and cure internet addiction are … Continue reading Evil or Live, The Dustbin For Children Which Is Also A Dustbin
Kuroki Tomoko is my favourite female anime character and for good reasons, her uniqueness and flaws as a character makes her very entertaining to watch. I don’t understand why people call the anime Watamote (the anime that she’s in) cringy because it really isn’t, it’s just funny. All of the moments that are called cringey … Continue reading Kuroki Tomoko: We Love Her Anyway
Ousama Game felt like my kind of show on the surface. The premise of the game is about gore, violence and unnatural things that are really creepy but also tense as well. I’d like to come out in full favour of the show because it made me want more but I can’t seem to do … Continue reading Ousama Game: Disappointment And Promise
Thank you TPAB for nominating this award to me. It’s great to receive the lovely blog award from someone who really thinks I deserve this. In a list of “love their personal stories”, “enjoying their posts a lot”, “your awesome”, I was pleased to be nominated for “his brain is completely empty”. Yeah, thanks a … Continue reading One Lovely Blog Award – MBICE
Before reading further I’ll say that you should watch School Days. The anime is a complete trip and it’s a journey that everyone will benefit from going on in the long run. Not to say that I like this show, I actually completely despise it, but don’t let that deter you! When people call this … Continue reading School Days – A Trip Through Hell
This episode was three minutes long! Why was it so short! An issue with using short episodes is that you don’t get the time to be involved in the world and you find that you really don’t care about the show at all. Whatever premise there might have been is just squandered because they don’t … Continue reading How To Mess Up A “Marriage Interview” demonstrated by Omiai Aite wa Oshiego, Tsuyokina, Mondaiji Episode 1.
I really like the couple of Tsubaki an Urabe from mysterious girlfriend X despite all the problems other people have to say about it. A big criticism that I’ve heard about the couple is that they don’t really make any progress with the relationship. Despite the fact that they learn from each other each … Continue reading Tsubaki and Urabe: The Great Couple From Mysterious Girlfriend X
The new anime season starts soon and I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be focussing on the new season whilst Ross continues to do whatever stupid thing he’s doing. I’m very new to anime but I hope to keep up with the new season and talk about whatever cool stuff aired that week. I’m undecided … Continue reading Deciding What To Watch Based Off Of MAL Pictures & Information (Fall 2017 Anime)
Even in anime’s that you like theirs almost always going to be a character that you hate, so I’m going to limit myself to the main characters of shows as they’re often given the most screen time so they almost always have to be good to make the show interesting. In some cases, an annoying … Continue reading Bobobo: The Most Annoying Anime Character Of All Time!

Welcome to the urgent, last minute round up of everything I watched in September! Yet again I’ve had a very busy month without viewing too much but oh well, you might see why in the future. Kodomo No Jikan I’ve not seen an anime tackle the issues of paedophilia in a way like this. It … Continue reading What I watched In September! (reviews and recommendations of anime)
Well this is quite a humiliating question and therefore a difficult one to answer. Most people would normally just talking about something they used to like e.g. SAO (even though they still secretly like it) but the truth for me is that I like every show that I’ve liked for valid reasons. I’ve never enjoyed … Continue reading What Anime Am I Ashamed I Enjoyed?
Being able to play any random thing on the piano and have it sound good is a skill that I think every pianist has or wants to have. But being able to do that is difficult! So I’ve got a way to skip all the difficult steps and just play something good randomly. As a … Continue reading Easy Tip to Effortlessly Improvise Piano – Even if you could never play in the first place!
Answering the question of which anime is my favourite is very difficult and something that I can only really do in the moment. To me, every anime degrades in quality the more time I spend away from it so I really find the question a hard one to answer. So I suppose my favourite anime … Continue reading My Favourite Anime Comedies!
The fact that I’m able to write and release this automatically underpins the point of the whole premise of this post but let me talk about what I mean. Writers block is always something that I’ve factored into my release schedule, at any time I can take roughly a two week break and still be … Continue reading Writers Block Ramble
The most epic scene in anime has to be the confrontation with the students and head teacher in prison school. It’s a brilliant scene because it’s not only hilarious but also extremely relevant to the plot. The boys in prison school are about to be expelled, they’ve had their three chances and it’s time for … Continue reading Boobs or Butts: The Most Epic Anime Scene Ever – Prison School (No Click bait)
As a response to the brilliant post: Top ten reasons why anime sucks! (https://mybrainiscompletelyempty.wordpress.com/2017/08/14/top-ten-reasons-why-anime-sucks/) I’ll add an addendum too it because I think something was missing. Something very obvious that wasn’t brought up. I think it must have been the 11th point which couldn’t have been shown but for me it’s far, far worse. This … Continue reading Another Reason Why Anime Sucks!
One of my favourite male characters in anime is Zetsubou Sensei from Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei. The fact that the guy tries to kill himself pretty much every episode shouldn’t deter you from liking this character though; it’s a very interesting character flaw. He isn’t just a depressed lunatic though, and he has many interesting … Continue reading Zetsubou Sensei: Brilliantly Depressing and Depressingly Brilliant
I’ve loved seeing other people’s anime challenge posts and decided to make my own. The one day of anime challenge. It’s going to be tough but I think I can do it. It’s based off of the 100 days of anime challenge by zero drama anime (which is probably better than this one). This challenge … Continue reading The One Day of Anime Challenge!
This list isn’t about simple generic villains. These people are evil, manipulative, twisted and soulless – stopping at nothing to raise themselves whilst lowering other people into the depths of hell. They don’t need to have a massive catalogue of evil deeds to be a brilliantly evil character, they just need to communicate terror or … Continue reading Top 5 Evil Anime Characters who will destroy you
In the wake of the new star wars trilogy releasing many people are talking about what was good about the prequels. I’m going to take these defences and explain why they are wrong, because these films are bad. “Great” Lightsaber Battles For some reason people think the fights were better in the prequels. Sure they … Continue reading 5 Things The Star Wars Prequels Did Wrong Which Everyone Thinks They Did Right
This anime is pretty controversial and many people have problems with it which I’ve addressed in this post here. It’s basically a disclaimer for everything I’m about to say and something I can point you towards if you have any concerns. Something I’ve noticed when reading reviews on my anime list is that most of … Continue reading Kodomo No Jikan Anime Review
I would like to release a post talking about Kodomo No Jikan however as it’s a story about a 7 year old trying to seduce her 23 year old teacher there are obvious concerns and criticisms to address before I actually get to what I want to talk about. This post is worth reading if … Continue reading Kodomo No Jikan: Addressing Criticism
Saying “you have bad taste if…” will always be an opinion and never a fact since taste is subjective and there is no objective view of what taste and enjoyment is better. There is no such thing as objective bad taste, just consensus bad taste, consensus meaning that theirs a prominent opinion of what makes … Continue reading Anime Harems: What Is Bad Taste? – Part 9
Hey guys, this my first ever post and it’s going to be good. Let me take you back to 1993, to Ninja scroll. I wasn’t born then but I think it’s clear that anime has changed over time. Ninja Scroll came out when anime didn’t mean little children frolicking, generic main characters or tentacle porn. … Continue reading NINJA SCROLL, NINJA SCROLL!

Who doesn’t love good old piracy every so often? I mean piracy’s great! Imagine something you want, chances are that piracy can have it for you. Why is this? It’s because pirate stories are awesome! It’s the sense of adventure, exploring the world of the seas. Getting into fights, exploring islands and ultimately having a … Continue reading Piracy
Not done one of these in two months because JEARETTAS kind of burnt me out. Because I released two anime episode reviews a day I talked about pretty much everything I watched anyway and nothing to talk about here. Well I still have a lot less than I usually do to talk about but oh … Continue reading What I Watched In August – (reviews and recommendations of anime)
It’s rare for me to find a time travel film which tackles it’s time travel mechanic in such an interesting and personal way. Instead of a simple save the world plotline the show explored the less catastrophic, more fun side of time travel whilst still creating an interesting, high stakes story which is fun to … Continue reading The Girl Who Leapt Through Time Is a Great Film

If you ask any “anime harems fan” why they enjoy them they often find it difficult to explain. This doesn’t mean that anyone has bad taste or isn’t smart, it’s just fairly telling for the genre. I’m going to argue that most harems (nearly all) are made far worse by including the harem aspects. This … Continue reading Anime Harems: Why Are People Even watching? – Part 8
9 months ago I started a series where I looked in depth at the harem genre. It was the first ever posts that I made and I always felt that the series was incomplete despite the fact that I felt more things needed to be said. These things will be updated as soon as I … Continue reading Anime Harems Can’t Fell Earned (mostly) – part 7
The Sakamoto death theory states that the reason why Sakamoto leaves at the end of “Sakamoto Desu Ga?” is because he’s dying and his time is up. Not wanting to leave his friends in misery he uses the excuse of going to NASA so that he can die in peace. People have a lot of … Continue reading The Sakamoto death theory (Sakamoto Desu ga?) and why it’s wrong
It’s a well-known objective fact that anime sucks, everyone knows this. Even my friends who watch anime dislike most of them. But they are wrong; it’s incorrect to like any anime because every single anime is awful. Here are ten reasons why The Anime Industry Sucks Something is deeply wrong and messed up with the … Continue reading Top Ten Reasons Why Anime Sucks
ages ago I started creating my own D&D Adventure, it was really fun and I made the first two parts completely which totaled 7 dungeons with their own individual encounters. The idea was that the players were in a city which needed to be defended from an army and their were many tasks that they … Continue reading Free D&D Campaign (4 Dungeons) – Kova’s Webb Pt.1 An Announcement
My problem with Hyrule Warriors is to do with the terrible AI and defeat conditions. In each game you will have a main overall goal but be able to lose in a certain way. The defeat conditions which I have a problem with is protecting the allied base and preventing allies from fleeing because it … Continue reading My Problem With Hyrule Warriors
Miura is probably my favourite manga artist because of his brilliant Berserk Manga which is full of dark fantasy, brilliant characterisation and stunning art work. Since the chapters release very slowly I thought I’d talk about his other work so that you can find something to do whilst waiting for that next chapter! Futatabi Futatabi … Continue reading BERSERK: Kentaro Miura’s Other Work / What To Read Whilst Waiting For New Chapters
Most people would say that the answer to the question is a definite and undoubtable ‘yes’ however this post intends to answer the question for people who really aren’t sure or don’t understand why people enjoy the show so much. As I’m discussing it addressing people who’ve not started the show I’ll only talk about … Continue reading Is Legend Of The Galactic Heroes Worth Watching?
For the month of July 2017 I started a project called JEARETTAS, a project where I would have to release at least two anime episode reviews every day. I not only succeeded in this goal but I was also able to write a huge amount and sometimes release more than two posts a day. Not … Continue reading JEARETTAS is over, Thank god!
Love Rice is an anime that explores the most tragic future that the world could face: a world without rice. Due to bad sales and harvests rice exportation and consumption has crashed and nobody cares about the food anymore and it’s fallen to our protagonist to become the ultimate harvstar, win the harvest competition (which … Continue reading Love Rice Episode 1 Review
After the events of the previous episode Riko and Reg had just escaped from the orphanage and started going down. As well as this Reg was caught on the way by leader who let him go because he thought he was going to the toilet. After this escape plan the 3rd episode ended leaving me … Continue reading Made In Abyss Episode 4 “The Edge Of The Abyss” Review
I’ve recently been enjoying watching low rated anime’s from this season so that I can enjoy ragging on them or just work out what people don’t like about it, and there’s plenty to dislike from this episode. In a successful three minute episode series the plot has to be easy to understand and should often … Continue reading The Irresponsible Galaxy Tylor Episode 1
Due to its extremely low MAL score (Bellow NTR) I expected this show to be offensively bad but it’s just not my thing. This show clearly isn’t meant to be taken seriously, it’s a comedy. Granted it’s not a very funny one but the premise is meant to sound funny and interesting. A princess turns … Continue reading Nora, Princess, and Stray Cat episode 1 Review
I think its anime’s like this which make public consensus pretty terrible towards anime and anime fans. No-matter how many great shows with cool stories, characters, visuals and e.c.t there will always be some terrible ones dragging the rest down. I’ve heard rumours that the word “Trap” is literal in NTR and that the girls … Continue reading Netsuzou Trap -NTR- Episode 1 Review
The episode opens with a video game with the main hero character. It has an old game aesthetic which then changes to a more normal anime view, telling us that everything we’re seeing is basically not really happening even though we can see it. This is a comedic, fantasy anime but I didn’t really like … Continue reading Mahoujin Guru Guru (2017) Episode 1 Review
We are thrown into the episode knowing that Riko wants to find her mother by going to the very bottom of the abyss. This leads to lots of conflict and emotion as going to the bottom is a one way trip and the characters of course don’t want to leave each other. At the same … Continue reading Made In Abyss Episode 3 Review
A lot happens in this episode and it’s all interesting. We are shown orphanage life, Reg joins the school and Riko receives an interesting secret document which sets the story up for the future. I’ve just given a brief description about the episode but it in fact accomplishes so much more. The episode introduces us … Continue reading Made In Abyss Episode 2 Review!
This less popular currently airing show has a brilliant best episode, probably the best opening this season has had so far. This is done through having fun characters, funny moments, and establishing the opening for what’s hopefully going to be a great series in a fun entertaining way without shoving the exposition down your throat. … Continue reading Made In Abyss Episode 1 “The City Of The Great Pit” Review!
Since I recently reviewed the first episode of the old Hunter X Hunter anime adaptation I thought it would be fun to review/ compare the episodes. Not only that, but I also learned that HxH was getting a dub that had been airing for about a year so I thought I’d watch the dub to … Continue reading Hunter X Hunter 2011 Dub Episode 1 Review!
Within the first two seconds we witness the birth of the first ever floating heart in all of its shiny, beautiful, misery. Sometimes I wonder what the point of fan service is if you hide it in post. If the show you’re making is intended for the consumption of a general audience then I don’t … Continue reading Hajimete No Gal Episode 1 Review
Tsurezure children is about depicting different scenarios about love and how different people react and deal with it. The high school setting and lack of main character allow us to view a snapshot into each characters love life to hopefully find it funny or interesting. This also means that if we find one particular character … Continue reading Tsurezure Children Episode 1 Review
Now that I’ve actually seen the episode in its intended format I can now say that the episode was both good and interesting. Watching also told me that I was wrong for most of my interpretations of the RAW version were correct yet some completely wrong. For example, I completely missed the strange marriage system … Continue reading The Other 70% of Koi To Uso Episode 1 Review!
I had this epic episode review planned out, it was going to be great, but I just thought to myself, let’s read the comments! So I did and nobody really seemed to like it even though I did and then I went to MAL to see the more general opinion (5 for awful and 7 … Continue reading AHO-GIRL Episode 1
To the shows credit episode one was pretty funny, in a very easy to understand and accessible way. The two main characters each exhibit animalistic behaviours of either a dog or a cat and the comedy used with this gimmick is pretty cool. You’ve also got another girl who’s just normal to act as the … Continue reading Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san Episode 1
Danchigai is the tale of four sisters and one brother who live together whilst they’re parents are away. I thought this might lead to terrible fan-service scenarios but I was surprised when this didn’t happen and the show decided to focus on their relationship as family. It’s a shame that the episodes are 3 minutes … Continue reading Danchigai Episode 1 Review
I genuinely wanted to watch this anime, it’s not like I’m only going to do short episode anime from now on just so that I can keep that 2 reviews a day promise! Miss Monochrome lives in a huge mansion with all the money she could ever need. She’s a very kind and trusting person … Continue reading Miss Monochrome the animation Episode 1 Review
I have to say that I’m very surprised at the direction that this anime went in. I’m going to spoil the huge plot twist (Also this post is 18+ due to language so don’t say I didn’t warn you) so watch the episode if you don’t want to be spoiled. At the start I saw … Continue reading Skirt No Naka wa Kedamono Deshita Episode 1 Review
Sometimes I just enjoy doing something stupid. Since I’ve started doing this whole episode review month I’ve made stupid, terrible, meaningful and satirical posts but this is something new. I am writing this episode review a day before the actual anime comes out. How so? I hear you say; well I obtained a version of … Continue reading Koi To Uso, 30% of Episode 1 Review!
I don’t really know what the popular opinion of this show is but I’m going to be honest and say that I really didn’t like it. This doesn’t mean it was terrible; it did keep me occupied for twenty minutes which is more than I can say for other shows that I thought I’d episode … Continue reading Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun Episode 1 Review
Since the new anime season starts in July I thought I’d start reviewing some episodes as it seems to be the done thing around here. Since I know this will come out late compared to everyone else’s episode review I’ll put extra effort in to make sure it’s good, and hopefully better. My enthusiasm for … Continue reading Kakegurui Episode 1 Review
After dropping Higurashi a long time ago I decided to check out this episode again to see if it was any good. My main problem with the series in the past was not really finding the mystery interesting (It’s just some dumb curse, right?), not really seeing the point and not really knowing what the … Continue reading Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Episode 1 Review
As always there was a lot going on in this episode and it was yet again very dodgy but still entertaining. One thing that I’ve noticed about this anime is that although its visuals are realistic its plot isn’t. A school girl pretty much gets kidnapped every episode and I don’t really like that trope … Continue reading GTO Episode 3 Review!
On this day of JEARETTAS we’re going to cover the first three episodes of the new GTO anime and never talk to them again. Even though the old and new anime’s are stylistically different their plots are very similar. The new version dedicates 45 minute episodes too their stories whilst the other takes 25. This … Continue reading GTO Episode 2 Review!
Like many people I loved the great teacher Onizuka anime back from 1999. So when I saw that this anime had another more recent adaptation, I leapt at the opportunity to give it a watch and I was very impressed. As with any anime, any adaptation done with different staff will be extremely different and … Continue reading GTO Episode 1 Review!
The original Hunter X Hunter series is actually quite different from the newer version in ways that I’d not really thought about, or couldn’t have thought about if I hadn’t watched episode one. The world comes across as a lot darker to me in comparison to the bright hope in the 2011 series. This was … Continue reading Hunter X Hunter episode 1 review
Before watching this anime I knew that I wouldn’t like it. It’s a terrible mind to be in whilst watching a show but I don’t think it was misguided. Just from the Crunchyroll poster I could see that it was action, high school, magic and most likely fan service as well – things that I … Continue reading Magical Warfare episode 1 Review
The severing crime edge is an anime that I watched because a reader said its first episode was amazing. Whilst I don’t think it was amazing it was pretty good. The main character Kiri, a boy who really loves cutting hair, finds a girl In a mysterious house and craves to cut her hair because … Continue reading The severing crime edge episode 1
I’m one of the few who ended up watching this show after watching its prequel, I understood that it wasn’t liked by the majority of Barakamon fans and I can now see why. I really enjoyed Handa-kun for its insane situations and crazy main character but I can see how everything’s changed. Handa is no … Continue reading Barakamon episode 1 review
About 8 months ago popular anime YouTuber by the name of Misty Chronexia released the pilot episode of his anime and it didn’t really go down well and wasn’t as big a success as he had hoped, and it’s very clear why from this first and only episode. The first few minutes are a terrible … Continue reading Chronexia And The Eight Seals Episode Review!
After watching 5 episodes of Yona I’ve decided to come back to review episode 12, because a reader told me it was good. So this means I’ve gone into it skipping basically everything meaning that this episode review will most likely be inaccurate. However if it gains such praise then there should be something I … Continue reading Yona of the dawn episode 12 Review
Considering that this specific episode was recommended to me I expected it to be a whole lot more weird than it actually was. If you thought this episode was weird then anime has not yet made you immune to strangeness! Thanks to anime I can’t properly react to hearing weird things about anime and I … Continue reading Super Sonico the animation Episode 6 Review
When I got the reader suggestion to review ep 1 and ep 6 of this anime I was pretty concerned and for fairly valid reasons, from hearing minor things from people I was under the impression that super sonico was hentai. But I guess I was wrong and I’m here to review the episode. The … Continue reading Super Sonico the animation episode 1
The episode starts with a childish misunderstanding that’s pretty stupid. Apparently the female lead character expects the main character to remember the dumb promise they made when they were kids. Sure it’s a promise but it’s annoying to see it touched upon when the character really shouldn’t remember it either. So she therefore leaves the … Continue reading Elfen Lied Episode 3 Review
The episode is mostly filled with a tense scene where Nyu is hunted down. It’s not particularly brilliant but it’s interspersed in between scenes of the other characters, making it interesting. The main character then gets injured and ends up in hospital. When he gets back he finds that Nyu is back at home in … Continue reading Elfen Lied Episode 2 Review
I never thought that Elfen Lied could be that good but after this episode I’m not so sure, it could turn out great or fail miserably based off of my response to the first three episodes that I’ve watched so far. It’s entertaining but I don’t really think the show has much quality. We start … Continue reading Elfen Lied episode 1 review
This anime was the first series that I’ve watched specifically to write about it and specifically because a reader asked me too. Due to this I made sure to go in unspoilt without knowing anything to make my review more interesting. I haven’t looked into this series any more than watching the first episode just … Continue reading KINMOZA! Episode 1 Review
Even with all of its romance and perceived seriousness I really didn’t like this episode. It felt too simple and I found that I couldn’t really care about the characters. Much like my problem with sakurasou no no pet kanojo I found that this anime got to the melodrama and serious plot points without making … Continue reading Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien Episode 1 Review
I wasn’t really entirely sure what to think about this episode. Firstly it introduced the student council president, whom I don’t really like that much, and then set up a problem of a missing cat. A missing cat! It’s basically the most boring thing you could choose to focus an episode on. That being said … Continue reading Chuunibyou Episode 2 Review
Chunibyo episode one is about a guy who has an embarrassing past, trying to be normal yet being prevented by a girl who is still into all the crazy stuff that he was into. He calls this idea of childish grandiose chunibyo and it sounds terrible. It felt quite generic but it was still entertaining. … Continue reading Chuunibyou Episode 1 Review
This episode was highly entertaining for me to watch and felt fun and cool yet also ominous. This was done through the dark sky and mean nature of the guards juxtaposed with the fairly simple and comedic story that the characters follow. Joey wishes to join yugi so that he can win money to pay … Continue reading Yugioh Episode 3 Review
Joey still sucks at yugioh so yugi decides to help him out by looking at his cards, they’re terrible. Yugioh once again teaches its fans about the important mechanics of the game by saying that having a balanced deck is important. Yugi then gets his grandad to teach Joey about how to improve but it’s … Continue reading Yugioh Episode 2 Review
The episode starts with Yugi and Joey having a game of yugioh to introduce us to the type of series it is, whilst establishing some of the major rules they hint at a super rare card that only Yugi’s grandpa owns. Unfortunately for these guys a rich evil guy by the name of Seto Kaiba … Continue reading Yugioh Episode 1 Review
This is the last series that I watched because I thought it might be like Golden Boy, it wasn’t. It was so terrible that I’m not even going to search for something like it again; I’ll just trust myself to find it on accident. This is three episodes of constant fan service, but the episodes … Continue reading Hantsu X Trash eps 1-3 Review(/s) (full series)
