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!)
