White Album is a ★★★☆☆ ︱The Exophoria in Love Songs

The first series for “White Album” is not only the progenitor to many other harem/cheating sub-genre series, like the infamous “School Days,” but it also is a cornerstone in effective, anime drama! It has a realistic engagement with infidelity, the pressure of musical stardom, rivalry in love, prioritizing relationships over work, and grieving over aContinue reading “White Album is a ★★★☆☆ ︱The Exophoria in Love Songs”

Tenjō Tenge is a ★★★☆☆ and The Ultimate Fight (OVA) is a ★★★☆☆︱Martial Arts, Voluptuous Women, and the Protagonist with Wolverine’s Hair

“Tenjō Tenge” is something that I really enjoyed as teenager. The show’s vivid cast of characters were bright and nearly popped through the television screen, with their vivacity! It had cool fight scenes, pretty girls, unrequited love, dramatic backstories, etc. But, let’s be real, I think I was mostly into it because I thought MayaContinue reading “Tenjō Tenge is a ★★★☆☆ and The Ultimate Fight (OVA) is a ★★★☆☆︱Martial Arts, Voluptuous Women, and the Protagonist with Wolverine’s Hair”

IS: Infinite Stratos (Season One) is a ★★★★☆ and the IS: Infinite Stratos Encore (OVA) is a ★★★★☆︱What if the Girls in Tenchi’s Harem Had Mech-Armor?

We bought this series around the same time as the “Divergence Eve” collection (see Divergence Eve review, for more information), and despite my lack of expectations for this series, it ended up being a brief respite from a few hard things in the real-world, that were pummeling me at the time. The production is aContinue reading “IS: Infinite Stratos (Season One) is a ★★★★☆ and the IS: Infinite Stratos Encore (OVA) is a ★★★★☆︱What if the Girls in Tenchi’s Harem Had Mech-Armor?”

Divergence Eve is a ★★★★☆ and Divergence Eve 2 is a ★★☆☆☆︱Eldritch Horror in Space

I originally went against the old adage with this one and judged a book by its cover. The gratuitously lewd shots and the water-balloon boobs (—I would compare their female “extremities” to the proportions in Lord Marksman and Vanadis), sent cold-shivers down my spine. But, fatefully, two years ago… the complete collection of Divergence EveContinue reading “Divergence Eve is a ★★★★☆ and Divergence Eve 2 is a ★★☆☆☆︱Eldritch Horror in Space”

Yumekui Merry is a ★★☆☆☆︱There Really Are No Hopes or Dreams

The tagline is Merry Nightmare’s famous catchphrase, and it hold true to the source material. In the world of Yumekui Merry, dreams and reality are one and the same. Originally created by a 東方Project dōjin artist (known for creating the somewhat-famous comic, “Advent Cirno”), the story has a fresh take on the Japanese lore ofContinue reading “Yumekui Merry is a ★★☆☆☆︱There Really Are No Hopes or Dreams”

Burn Up! Scramble is a ★☆☆☆☆︱The Cop Catastrophe

Burn Up! Scramble seemed to have been an ambitious project, they brought on the director of Tenchi Muyō, and swept away all of the old seiyū talents and replaced them with actresses like Mamiko Noto and Rie Kugamiya. Everything seemed to be part of an allegorical jigsaw puzzle that was falling into place, but then,Continue reading “Burn Up! Scramble is a ★☆☆☆☆︱The Cop Catastrophe”

Burn Up! is a ★★☆☆☆︱Big Crimes, Big Busts

I just had to use the tagline on the ADV release, for the review title; it was too good to pass up! Now, let’s get into the Burn Up! OVA, the one that exploded into a multi-TV series/OVA-spanning franchise. The original OVA is like a gust of smog, that turns a shroud of clouds grey,Continue reading “Burn Up! is a ★★☆☆☆︱Big Crimes, Big Busts”

Hololive personality, Luna Himemori, has been suffering from tendonitis in her neck and right hand. In her most recent video, she explained that she had been experiencing terrible pain from her ailment and will have to get surgery on her wrist. In the heartbreaking stream, she cried and talked about how scared she was andContinue reading “Prayers for Luna Himemori”

Top 10 Husbando Characters?!

I decided to follow the trend of making a “husbando” list, started by Mechanical Anime Reviews. 😄 ⚠️ This article will be spoiler-free ⚠️ #10: Tetsuo (Yūreitō) Tetsuo uses his wits to get out of some really horrifying situations in Yūreitō, I mean, the first killer uses the hands of a clocktower to stretch out human bodies.Continue reading “Top 10 Husbando Characters?!”

Lucky☆Star is a ★★★★☆︱The Comfort of Close Friends

On a rainy day, Lucky☆Star is the allegorical cup of cocoa that you sip on, while you look on, as the droplets of rain drizzle down—it’s like the comfort of being inside, while you bask in the warm, golden glow of your home. In a similar fashion to the elongated metaphor, this series turns everydayContinue reading “Lucky☆Star is a ★★★★☆︱The Comfort of Close Friends”
