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)
The episode goes where you would expect it to go from the previous based of off what happened. The girl gets with the mega playboy but the mega playboy continues to be the same Junta that we know. I think the reasoning behind this is to have the personality that drew us to the show … Continue reading DNA² Episode 2 Review, YEAH!
In DNA² we’re introduced to main character Junta who is for some reason allergic to girls. This is shown through him becoming sick at the most attractive girl in his school. Despite all this, he is explained to be a serious threat to mankind as he is the “mega playboy”. He is such a problem … Continue reading DNA² Episode 1 Review
(The episode wallpaper isn't of this anime, please bear in mind that it's not easy to find wallpaper for this anime by searching "colorful anime") I’ve been doing a lot of very long episode reviews recently so I’ll make this one fairly short and to the point. Do not watch it, it’s terrible. Not only … Continue reading Colorful Episode 1 Review
As I was trying to find shows to watch that were similar to golden boy I came across this one episode OVA called Junk boy and it was well, pretty bad. Unlike many I didn’t really dislike the art style or animation; I knew it was late 80’s show anyway so I didn’t expect much. … Continue reading Junk Boy Review!
If you don’t know Bobobo you really need to understand the style of comedy in the series for this to make sense. It uses whacky comedic moments consistently in its episode just because it’s actually funny. So, as this was the finale episode of the Captain Battleship arc is naturally opened with the characters building … Continue reading Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo Episode 21 Review!
Just as I had expected the first half of this episode focuses on the fight with the wind master until he’s defeated. One thing that I hate is the unrealistic countdowns, how can they stretch a ten second countdown to a whole minute? And just when it couldn’t get any worse, the organisers take Yusuke … Continue reading Yu Yu Hakusho Episode 41 Review
The main purpose of this episode was to provide set up for the inter high preliminary’s and I’m looking forward to it. When an episode doesn’t have much going on but training it’s nice to see a lot of cool moments here and there whilst establishing that they’re working very hard. They reveal a hidden … Continue reading Haikyuu Episode 14 Review
The thrilling finale of golden boy has happened and its conclusion has been established and it all felt fairy sad yet also bitter. The episode introduces a new girl and brings back all of the old ones for a climatic finale. Oddly enough, the problem that Kintaro solved was probably the most important yet the … Continue reading Golden Boy Episode 6 Review
We’re going back to golden boy to discuss the first episode and it’s actually pretty good once you spend a few minutes thinking about it. But first let me tell you what happened in the episode in case for some reason you’re reading this without watching it. The main character is golden boy, a boy … Continue reading Golden Boy Episode 1 Review
So to watch this episode I switched to the sub as the voice actor for the wind master was a whole lot better in my opinion and the episode was much better because of it. Despite this it spent its entirety focussing on the fight and didn’t give us much else to see, the fight … Continue reading Yu yu hakusho Episode 40 Review
In the previous episode review I discussed how theirs something to learn even in the most worst of episodes. So now I might have to go back on that statement because this episode was seriously insane. Starting with a cute girl making out with a bike is a great way to clue us into whom … Continue reading Golden Boy Episode 5 Review
Despite this episode being a far lot worse than any other I still liked it. Even in the worst of episodes, the episodes that are rife with obnoxious fan service there’s always some aspect at the end that makes you feel like you’ve learned something. The majority of this show is annoying fan service which … Continue reading Golden Boy Episode 4 Review
Well this show continues to impress me again and again. It’s given me quite an interesting view on fan service! I think that most people see shows like golden boy and criticise them or think of them as less worthwhile just because of the fan service prevalent in them. A show with fan service can … Continue reading Golden Boy Episode 3 Review
Episode two does a great job in establishing the episodic like nature of these episodes and the formula. It would seem that each episode is going to be golden boy’s various encounters with women and the stories that he has with them. Each episode is about an encounter with a cute girl and the various … Continue reading Golden Boy Episode 2 Review
This episode was great and seemed to go by quickly. As most people would have been annoyed and horrified of the events at the previous episodes it was good to see the guy who destroyed Kurama receive his comeuppance! In a stark contrast to the previous episodes this one felt like light-hearted fun and action, … Continue reading Yu yu Hakusho Episode 39 Review
Review: Once again I find myself completely baffled by watching this show! The level of detail that goes into this world is immense and it constantly talks about things that have happened in the past which are relevant to these characters in the present. Unfortunately it would be nice if the show explained those things … Continue reading Naruto Shippuden Episode 3 Review
Review: The series of Naruto is well liked and beloved but I’m finding it hard to forge a connection with it as exemplified through my experience with episode two. In episode one I was massively confused because I had no idea what was going on but now I’m worried about what I missed. The fact … Continue reading Naruto Shippuden Episode 2 Review
Review: This episode starts with a long shot of the characters running along a corridor to meet a guy called Sakuke? I’m pretty sure that’s how you spell it, anyway it was a very weird episode overall. First of all I had no idea what was going on for the duration of it, you would … Continue reading Naruto Shippuden Episode 1 Review
“Yamishibai is a short horror series that has very short episodes so the… oh sorry that was nothing, I just thought I heard something. It take… um… ok maybe I should go. The story starts out very rooted and unscary but then. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” (Dies) “Hmmm… I enjoyed this episode” – (creepy spider monster who just … Continue reading Yamishibai season 3 Episode 2 Review
We continue to see just how corrupt this dark tournament is with sponsors watching and laughing just because they have enough money to make the characters suffer. Without stepping out of the ring Kurama went to have a second fight against ice master Toya despite the fact that his spirit powers were sealed in the … Continue reading Yu Yu Hakusho Episode 38 Review
And just when we didn’t think the dark tournament organisers couldn’t get any scummier! I thought that the tournament organisers couldn’t make the characters circumstances any worse but I was proved wrong again, and this time by a sexy nurse. By pretending to be friendly and helpful to the team in the intersessions between they’re … Continue reading Yu Yu Hakusho ep 37
The episode starts with team Yusuke’s mysterious small girl removing the mind control devices from their competition after a thrilling fight. These people who have been brainwashed were living in constant torture and hell so it was good to see them escape. The extra detail of them saving themselves was also a nice touch as … Continue reading Yu Yu Hakusho Episode 36 Review!
Instead of doing a “what I watched post” like I always do at the end of each month I’m going to announce that JEARETTAS starts tomorrow. It’s a whole month dedicated to episodic anime reviews for strange reasons that I’ve already described here: https://mybrainiscompletelyempty.wordpress.com/2017/06/14/jearettas-anime-project-announcement-give-me-suggestions/ So instead of writing and talking about what I watched I … Continue reading JEARETTAS STARTS TOMORROW!
If you take nothing else from this post please leave a suggestion for an anime that you want me to talk about in this upcoming project. Ever since I’ve started anime blogging I’ve been completely confused by the community’s love of episodic reviews as I always thought they were strange. After all, anime’s weren’t written … Continue reading JEARETTAS anime project announcement (Give me suggestions)
