Anime Review 239 Date A Live

There's truly something to be said about the mid-2010s. It was the era where ecchi/harem genres dominated the anime charts. A seasonal anime fan in the mid-2010s couldn't go through a season without seeing one or more series with an ecchi/harem tag. Of course, these genres eventually were phased in favour of Isekai and seasonal... Continue Reading →

Oh, Black Bullet what a sad mishandled flop you were and still are to this day.

Anime Review 234 Dr Stone Stone Wars

The winter 21 season of anime might have been called ft the squeal season as the majority of the shows were squeals to already established franchises. Sure we got some new IPs such as Wonder Egg Priority, Horimiya and Mushiou Tensei Jobless Reincarnation, but if new seasonal anime wanted to enjoy that season as those... Continue Reading →

Anime Review 236 Aquarion

December 2021 might as well be the month where I brought the most amount of sci-fi mecha anime in one spending session. This is mainly due to most of the animes that were on the Christmas sale being sci-fi mecha anime and of course being a sci-fi mecha fan I took advantage. As from ordering... Continue Reading →

Anime Review 235 Gundam Breaker Battlouge

Toy/card commercial anime have been with us for like ever. Like them or hate them, they have been a dominant force in our lives as they are mostly a good form of marking. From Yu-Gi-Oh, Beyblade, Bakugan, Danball Senki, Cardfight Vanguard, Future Card Buddyfight, Shadowverse, and many more. For Gunpla aka the Gundam equivalent of... Continue Reading →

Anime Review 232 Hunter x Hunter 2011

If someone asks me what is your favourite battle shounen? I would always say Hunter x Hunter. I can remember the day when I first sat down to watch Hunter x Hunter and after completing it in 2015 my views on shounen have massively changed. You see, prior to watching Hunter x Hunter 2011 for... Continue Reading →

Anime Review 230 Fire Force Season 2

Welcome back, it's time to talk about Fire Force Season 2. 2 years ago I reviewed the Fire Force Season 1, a poorly structured mess of a shounen that suffered from a lacklustre cast (barring Maki) cringe-inducing unfunny humour, awful worldbuilding, a badly written story that relied on cliches and terrible direction. It may have... Continue Reading →

10 anime that I thought I would hate (but ended up loving)

Over the past couple of months, I have recently watched a bunch of shows from my growing anime DVD-Blu-ray collection. One of the things that I notice while consuming was that some of the recent purchases that I made were show’s that I expected to hate/let alone not like. Which inspired me to do this blog post. I will admit, I have been on a blind buy anime streak recently and I want to try to reduce that addiction as some of the shows that I brought were not cheap, but at the same time, I just want to discover new shows psychically. With that said these are 10 animes that I expected to hate but end up loving in no particular order. Muv Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse. Due to how fundamentally disastrous the recent Muv Alternate... Continue Reading →
