A subpar attempt at mixing slice-of-life and conspiracy.

This one's quite the mixed bag. Robotics;Notes appears to juggle several lingering plot developments with the main focus being on a struggling robotics club, both members experiencing disorders that affect their perception of time and a conspiracy development connected to a collection of reports that Kaito is trying to track ...

Has some plotting issues, but the character drama makes up for it

Nagi no Asukara is focused around a group of four middle schoolers who live in a village under the sea and go to the surface for schooling, even with some hostilities between humans and sea dwellers for the former's abandoning of the seas to live on land. The series starts ...

Has some nice elements, but is often cliched and lacks an ending.

Accel World is a bit of a mixed bag for me to deliver my thoughts on. Taking place in a future where augmented reality is the norm with the younger generation, a bullied outcast named Haruyuki meets up with popular girl Kuroyukihime who gives him a game called Brain Burst ...

A series with wasted potential and a very sloppy finale.

Well, this was wasted potential. On paper, Wizard Barristers had a potentially interesting premise with its law office perspective on a world where wizards face discrimination and get wrongly prosecuted for crimes due to a flawed and sometimes prejudiced judicial system. The show starts off as an episodic look at ...

A fun, manic action-comedy paying homage to older action anime.

I was getting vibes of Gurren Lagann watching Kill la Kill in its 24-episode run and I mean it in a good way. Like Lagann being a homage to old-school mecha anime, Kill la Kill is an action-comedy paying homage to old-school action anime with hot-blooded young fighters, crazy attacks, ...

A long, yet decent, title featuring two brothers with NASA.

Space Brothers is focused on the challenges faced by Hibito and Mutta with their involvement in JAXA and NASA with Hibito being a NASA astronaut and Mutta trying to work his way into becoming one with the two having promised to be on a space mission together someday. Being a ...

The best offering there is for the Digimon franchise.

Surprising what a touch from Lain head writer Chiaki Konaka offers up for what is supposed to be an animated advertisement for a children's card game. Digimon Tamers offers up a number of unique spins on the franchise that make it the best offering of the franchise I've seen. Perhaps ...

Too much gore and too little fleshing out here.

Not sure if I should feel indifferent or confounded at how Blood-C tries to spin its tale. Being the second spinoff of Blood: The Last Vampire, Saya is this time a bespectacled high school girl who secretly slays demonic threats while living at her father's shrine. Early episodes mix around ...

A cookie-cutter effort at an action anime,

About all I can say of resuming my watch of Book of Bantorra from over four years ago is "meh". Having an influential crime fighting group against an evil syndicate (in this case, a fanatic cult) is nothing new in anime for me and my indifference further rises with the ...

An engaging feudal era film mixed with supenatural lore.

Not too often I get to see a Japanese feudal era title mixed with elements of folklore to see out of recent efforts that isn't spun off from dating sims or manga as Hakuoki and Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East. This movie spins its own unique take on the ...

Quite weak in quality compared to its first season.

Compared to the first season, this second season of Digimon Adventures is a step down in quality quite heavily. With exception to Ken, the new characters lacked the depth and problems that the first season kids experienced. This is especially a problem with new kid Davis, who is portrayed as ...

Another train wreck anime, this one not too original.

Guess the rumors were true of this being as much of a train wreck with plot as Code Geass was and Guilty Crown sure loves milking its tropes and stealing plot setups from other anime. The premise of Japan being taken over by a corrupt foreign power and a mysterious ...

Still memorable over a decade later when I first seen it.

Digimon is one of my guilty pleasure anime. Sure it has enough predictable elements: several children are on a journey where they see various monsters a la Pokemon, Digimon are beaten to the point of defeat until their owner finds the power within to give them a boost to beat ...

Enough wasted potential for a romance drama.

Talk about a big waste of potential. On paper, Natsuyuki Rendezvous's premise seemed like a unique one in its focus on a love triangle involving a young part-time flower shop worker, his older manager, and the ghost of his manager's dead husband. The dynamics of the triangle involved Ryosuke trying ...

One of the overhyped titles of the Gundam franchise.

Like Gundam Wing, SEED got a great deal of hype and praise from fans in the early to mid 2000s among Gundam fans. At the same time, there are folks that accuse SEED of being a poor-man's Gundam 0079 with its blatant rip-off of story elements and structure from the ...
