  1. Slime ends

    Or as it was called, Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken. It was a solid production, but in the same time a disappointment for manga readers. There was seemingly no dramatic tension, even in major fights. I think the only time I was interested in the story was when our slime …

  2. Bocchi begins

    Japanese sure love their emotional anxiety stories. Some are immensely popular, yet fail to interest... I'm looking at you, Komi-san. Fortunately, Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu takes a sunshine approach. Imagine, if you will, a Watamote, where the main character is not a disgusting turd of a person, but rather …

  3. Real quick

    Been busy recently. Well, that, and scanlations.

    Yama no Susume S3: not as amazing as S2. In S2, they had a lot of growth and stepped beyond the boundaries of CGDCT. I don't remember the last time when an anime protagonist fail as hard as Aoi did, and then live …

  4. CKS on Slime

    Not much to add to this:

    Above all, Slime is a cheerful, good-hearted show that is out to make us smile. If you want conflict and challenged characters and so on, this is not for you; it's all about Rimuru solving a succession of problems and running over a succession …

  5. Top 5 of mecha anime

    Scott (apparently no relation to Scott Von Schilling) of Mechanical posted a little mecha top-5: FMP, Geass, Gurren-Lagann, Escaflowne, Gundam 00/Gundam: IBO. Each generation has its own heroes, I suppose. Still, I think we can do better without going full Let's Anime.

    Gurren-Lagann: This is one entry that Scott …

  6. Haters: 2 - Author: 0

    Since my tastes run contrary to the mainstream often, I tend to fall into the hipster trap, where if eveone say that something is bad, I expect it to be good. But obviously it's a logical fallacy, and I'm getting it with two big titles: Slime (Reincardated As) and Demon …

  7. Conception

    Why am I watching this trash? It's even made by GONZO, and didn't I have a strict no-GONZO policy? The basic answer is, I tend to want to switch off recently.

    The concept of the show is this: the protagonist is transferred to another world, where he has to seduce …

  8. Meow-Meow Japanese History

    Also known by its original name of Neko-neko Nihonshi, the cat thing is a delight. Although, truth to be told, I'm not entirely sure about some of the characters, most are quite recognizeable. Shinsegumi commanders, for example, or Ryoma Saotome. The episode of Sei Shounagon is my most favourite, with …

  9. FranXX begins

    Initially, [Darling in the] FranXX came on my radar because everyone latched on the supposed sexual innuendo (even Evirus). Later, Faust came strongly in favor, although on Smug.Loli instead of his own blog:

    Do you like Trigger's Darling in the FranXX? Their early work was a little too cartoonish …
