Hell Girl season 3 appears to be running out of new ideas for me.

This season of Hell Girl felt like a step down in quality compared to the quality of the second season. Mitsuganae retains the elements you would find in the first two seasons of Hell Girl where a victim browses the Hell Correspondence site to send their tormentor to hell, thinks ...

A classy and original premise for a slice of life title.

Not too often I see an anime of an acquired taste on caliber with the likes of Bartender. While I'm normally not into drinking alcohol, Bartender's large focus on the drink and its influence on the customers that visit Ryu's tavern made me somewhat tempted at points to consider the ...

A decent, original premise that sadly looks incomplete.

It's a bit of a shame that Zombie-Loan had to end as abruptly as it did considering I did find it quite entertaining to look into. The premise itself was quite original where Chika and Shito are being loaned life as zombies in exchange for hunting evil "illegal" zombies. The ...

An impressive political thriller with high-quality presentation.

Continuing off from the first season, Ghost in the Shell 2nd GIG effectively makes itself into a political thriller series where what comes across at first sight as Section 9 trying to halt terrorist activity turns into an elaborate political conspiracy that once again pushes Section 9 to its limit ...

Hell Girl 2 corrects some of the major issues from Season 1.

The second season of Hell Girl is a great improvement over the first season. While it is still marred with the repetitious developments with the victim and tormentor at a number of points, many of the character stories that Ai and her companions become entangled in are a bit more ...

Original though its episodic setup gets a bit repetitive.

For such an original and intriguing premise, I found myself a little disappointed with how Hell Girl turned out throughout much of its run. This is a series with signs of a grey moral line through the actions of Ai and her companions as they use their Hell Correspondence site ...

Just as over-the-top and flawed as Code Geass.

This series was giving me a number of vibes connected to Code Geass and I don't mean that in a good way. Star Driver appeared to be trying to mix around the classic archetypes of super robot anime, slice-of-life high school comedy and the over-the-top elements of Code Geass. If ...

While showing its age, Macross is still a decent old-school gem.

Being just as successful in bringing about the "real robot" genre of mecha titles for anime like Mobile Suit Gundam, Macross offered up its own unique spin on the genre with pop idols, an intergalactic war with an alien race and a love triangle. Focusing on the clash of humans ...

A dark, horrific and twisted look into humanity at its worst.

This was quite the fun and twisted little horror title. Requiem from the Darkness depicts an episodic series of feudal era horror stories depicting mysterious and brutal murders with an element of mystery as writer Momosuke and the trio of mysterious detectives known as the Ongyou are caught up in ...

While not perfect, Chaos;Head juggles enough quite well.

Chaos;Head was a series that juggled a multiple number of genres throughout its run involving sci-fi, psychological thriller, mystery, otaku focus, action and harem romance. Such a volatile mix, especially for a 12-episode series, had its potential to make this show a train wreck yet despite some glaring issues, this ...

While enjoyable, Pumpkin Scissors left too much dangling.

As a whole, Pumpkin Scissors was a decent series that I did want to like. The premise of a war-torn post-World War I country attempting to move on and the aftermath of said war brought up some interesting themes to explore such as questionable moral actions from the military, political ...

A touching, fun and manic mid-1990s romantic dramedy.

I had first heard of Kodocha over five years ago while I was still a college student and it was a series I wanted to see for quite some time. Before I comment on my thoughts of the series, I have to admit that it was quite the challenge for ...

A mixed bag of a gory sword-action title.

Here was a series I wasn't sure what to make heads or tails out of with my enjoyment. Shigurui goes for a feudal era setting in exploring the events that lead up to the upcoming fight seen at the start of the series between Seigen and Gennosuke. This series goes ...

A confusing and mixed package of an anime coming off Noitamina.

Oy voy, this series was unsure what to make of itself. At first glance, I thought the show was gonna try making itself into a walking homage to Ghibli titles considering the nods to Nausicaa and Laputa in the show's first episode with the opening music and Phyrne's air chase ...

A mixed bag of a post-apocalyptic anime drama.

Gilgamesh proved to be quite the mixed bag of a title with its fair share of both positives and negatives that stuck out for me with its plot setup of the conflict between factions over the fate of humanity. The show gives off enough of a gloomy mood with the ...
