The series had a good premise, but it failed to follow through. It couldn’t execute on the ideas it tried to present. It’s a weird show, honestly speaking. While I do think A Certain Magical Index will cater to some anime fans, I’m often brought to wonder just who I can honestly suggest this series for. … Read More Anime Review: A Certain Magical Index
Today we’re going to talk about a series that’s gentle and easy to watch. However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows either. Sometimes this anime is a little bitter-sweet and contemplative above all else. While it touches on the subject of loss, you’ll find the themes to be easily digestible and never too dark. Today I’m talking about A Little Snow Fairy Sugar.… Read More Anime Review: A Little Snow Fairy Sugar
One of the most notable anime of that year is A Place Further than the Universe. It’s also known in Japan as Sora yori mo Tōi Basho. The series was released in January of 2018 and finished around March of that same year. Written by Jukki Hanada and featuring amazing character designs by Takahiro Yoshimatsu, the series started off on a strong foot for that alone.… Read More Anime Review: A Place Further than the Universe
Bartender stands out as a refined slice-of-life series for older viewers. It isn’t your standard formula by far, and it doesn’t pretend to be. It is soft and sophisticated without being obnoxious. Themes are sometimes vague, but not needlessly obtuse. Character stories are personal and often layered in simple but deep symbolism.… Read More Anime Review- Bartender
The fate of a Claymore is hardly peaceful, and usually ends tragically. Anyway you look at it, their mere existence is rather lonely and their fates promise to be the selfsame as the Yoma themselves. If a woman becomes a Claymore, her days are numbered and that’s just a cold hard fact that these women accept and understand as the way of the world.… Read More Anime Review: Claymore
From the music, animation, running gags, and common tropes, this anime is like a time capsule. It perfectly preserves what slice-of-life anime was like in the early 2000’s. That alone might be a reason to go back and give it a watch. The problem is, I have trouble saying that you’ll actually like it. … Read More Anime Review: Fruits Basket (2001)
Honestly, it’s likely one of the few anime that ever really gets to me. That’s because the anime is both subtle and incredibly evocative of other shows and series you may have seen before. Yet, where those anime may fall short, March Comes in Like a Lion doesn’t. This anime stands its ground quite well, despite what it has to offer.… Read More Anime Review: March Comes in Like a Lion
The majority of this story revolves around children being raised to be consumed like cattle. This is contained in a society that no longer runs on the strength of mankind alone. Intelligent demons inhabit the world, and they eat humans. If that bothers you, don’t watch this series.… Read More Review: The Promised Neverland
Every year more mindless drivel gets released only to be forgotten. To be honest, good drama anime are very difficult to come by. That’s why Your Lie in April is an important anime to discuss. It is a very well written drama anime.… Read More Anime Review – Your Lie in April
While these are not full length reviews, they are short form reviews, with scripted video content included. These are also in alphabetical order for your convenience.
Loneliness is a hard burden to face, and heartache is isn’t so easily soothed by a few kind words and a passing glance. If it were that simple, these two souls would have likely passed each other by without a single care. However, that’s not what happens, because life and love just isn’t that simple. … Read More Kern’s Collections: Emma: A Victorian Romance
Haibane Renmei is just as much about grief as it is about joy. Sorrow and regret live alongside happiness and catharsis. These charcoal feathers have but one real goal. They must come to terms with themselves, their circumstances, and what they must ultimately leave behind.… Read More Kern’s Collections: Haibane Renmei
To be honest, Space Brothers stands as a “catch-all” anime for me. If I don’t know what anime to pick out for a new viewer, I always go with Space Brothers. It is especially accessible for an american viewer because the idea of going to outer space is part of our mass media to begin with. It’s a concept and idea that we understand, and flock towards in mass.… Read More Kern’s Collections: Space Brothers
