Qualidea Code is a show from summer 2016. It’s one that I don’t even want to waste too many words on. It’s one of those shows that starts out as one thing then rapidly turns into something else and they rush to finish it with another horrible twist. It’s like they didn’t know what direction to go with it so they tried everything. Continue readingby
Arata Kasuga is “cursed” with something known as the Collapse Phenomenon which has the capability of destroying the world and there are people after him for this power. Some want to be able to abuse him power and there are others who want to kill him so this power doesn’t fall in the wrong hands. The ones looking to kill him are the girls of Biblia Academy. The girls each have their own powers based on the seven deadly sins so they are definitely capable of taking him out. What Arata doesn’t know is that the girls of the Academy may be his only hope of understanding the phenomenon and saving his cousin who seems to have disappeared because of it. Continue readingby
I’m going to keep this short and sweet. This has to be the absolute worst drek I ever had the displeasure of watching. I don’t know how there are people who try to justify this crap. I even watched it twice to see if maybe it was just me but no. Japan already has issues with lolicons and all this pedophile bait like the Fate series with the little girls and Eromanga Sensei but this is just the worst. Well there are probably worse but this one is bad.
It’s about an alien who is trying to “yurify” the world. She tries saving a girl’s brother from some pedophile alien and keeps talking about the kid’s “appendage”. She makes calls from under a little girl’s skirt…don’t ask me that’s just how she has to make calls. I just can’t….
It’s only an OVA but they had the nerve to make 2. Have you ever seen me rate anything with less than 2 stars? This is getting a 1/2.by
Here’s one I went way back for. Well not THAT far back but this is one that most people seem to have ignored. At least the people I know of anyway.
The show is based around a concept of “Shikabane Hime” which is after being murdered, some people come back with the goal of killing 108 regular shikabane to earn entry into heaven. Aiding the Shikabane Hime is a contracted monk. They have to have a contracted monk or they become ordinary shikabane which is basically a zombie that’s out of control for one reason or another. Makina is one such Shikabane Hime with the goal of avenging her family who was killed by a group known as the Seven Stars. Continue readingby
Keijo. One of the most “controversial” animes in a long time even though there’s no reason for it other than people wanting to stand on a soapbox and be loud. The show is about a “sport” known as Keijo. It’s a women only sport where girls/women have to knock each other off these floating platforms known as “land” or other structures that are situated above bodies of water. There is one other aspect though, they can only use the breasts or butts. The show revolves around their training to become high earning players. Continue readingby
I picked up Tamako Market because some of the voice actors in it. Without them I might not have watched even though it’s by one of my favorite studios, Kyoto Animation.
The show centers around Tamako, eldest daughter of a family who runs a mochi shop. One day she’s walking along and comes across a strange talking bird named Dera who is on a mission. Dera endulges himself a little too much and becomes too fat to fly so he becomes a freeloader at the mochi shop. The show follows Tamako, her friends, family and neighbors through their everyday life and Dera’s mission. Continue readingby
World Trigger was a show I got into because I was being bombarded with ads from Crunchyroll. At first I didn’t want to want the show because the “enemy” were called neighbors. Which seemed absolutely ridiculous at the time but those ads were relentless so I had to check it out. Another thing that got my attention was that the show was greenlit for 50 episodes and I’m tired of shows only getting 12 episodes to try to tell a story. Most shows end up rushed or unfinished due to the lack of enough episodes.
Brief synopsis: Mikado City is where the events of World Trigger take place. One day a gate to another world opens and these monsters known as ‘neighbors’ come through the gate. Of course everyone is afraid of them, especially since Earth weapons have no affect on them. Then a mysterious group known as Border enters the scene to fight them off. 4 1/2 years later, a new gate opens where Yuma comes to Earth. Yuma and Osamu meet at school where Yuma is adjusting to Earth life and Osamu looks like an ordinary student. Not too long after, a new gate opens and Osamu reveals he’s a Border trainee and tries to fight off the ‘neighbor’ but it’s too strong for him so Yuma joins the fray. This is only the beginning, trust me. Continue readingby
Well the season is over and I thought this would be the first one I threw out my thoughts about. Yes I know I have like 3-4 seasons to catch up writing about but anyway…
Kemono Friends, the anime that seemed to take Japan and fan art by storm. It’s crazy to think this show would be such a runaway hit. I doubt it is over here in the US but in Japan it definitely made waves.
The show is one that seems to be aimed at kids but it was on late at night which leads you to believe there is more to it than meets the eye. When you first look at the show you will probably say something like “what the hell is this”. It has some very very janky CGI, a friendly “meet the animals” type theme and it doesn’t give off anything that would seem more mature or adult. Though you can tell something apocalyptic happened. I will say the background art is okay. Continue readingby
