Critics Report: Asura Cryin’

October 22, 2010

This Anime is Awarded:

You will have to put a lot of effort to follow this show and frankly you will get little reward for your troubles. Many aspects have a lot of content to them, rules, ins and outs that you need to know to follow the show. However even with all of that I still have no idea what is going on with this show. (more…)


Critic’s Report: Asu no Yoichi!

February 18, 2010

This anime is awarded:

Before watching this anime I thought to myself, “This is probably one of those harems ecchi shows where a lot of girls fall for the same guy.” Well it was almost that. Instead of a lot of girls there was only two, Ibuki Ikaruga and Ayame Ikaruga. They fall in love with Yoichi Karasuma. But unlike many harems this anime has a credible storyline. Unknowingly Ibuki has a fiance. After many years he has finally come to wed his belowed. That’s basically the jist of it. Yoichi and the girls try to overcome obstacles and challenges that are thrown at them. (more…)

Critic’s Report: Angelic Layer

February 10, 2010

This anime is awarded:

Like most tournament shows, the themes of doing your best and friendship pervade the experience. A doll used in the Angelic Fights is usually treated by her (or rarely, his) owner (deus) as though it were a dear friend, with concerned cries going out when they are injured. Unlike most competition shows, however, Angelic Layer isn’t treated as the be-all-end-all of life. Characters who take it too seriously end up losing to Misaki and come to see that winning is less important than making friends and having fun. That’s not to say the entire show is light-hearted and gay; Misaki’s personal mantra seems to be: I’ll do my best in spite of my tiny size! (more…)

Critic’s Report: Akikan!

January 30, 2010

This anime is awarded:

If you like the idea of a show that is entertaining, self-satirical, has ‘colorful’ characters and manages to save a little room for serious stuff, this could be the show for you. If you are really into deep, complex characters with intricate winding plot twists and you looove super serious business 24/7, this is probably not the series for you. (more…)

Critic’s Report: AD Police

January 8, 2010

This anime is awarded:

AD Police is the kind of show that would really benefit from being condensed into a movie or an OVA. If you stripped out about half of the dragged out scenes and needless exposition you’d have an accidentally entertaining piece. There is no denying that AD Police is bad, the only question with these kinds of shows is “can you squeeze any kind of amusement out of it?” Or as the show itself likes to phrase it, “Just how bad can things get?” Indeed, an astute observation on the part of the creators of this show. That is the question you will find yourself asking after every installment. This show gets pretty ridiculous and there are a handful of scenes that are unintentionally funny. (more…)

Critic’s Report: Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai

October 27, 2009


This Anime is Awarded:


Imagine that a pre-teen comes home from vacation to find out that his life collection of boyish and geeky paraphernalia has been lost in the ruins of the place he once called his home. Consider too while he’s dealing with that, his best friend tells him, rather nonchalantly, that she will be leaving Osaka to live in Hokkaido. To top off a rather taxing day, he witnesses an event that would cause his world and his best friend’s world to be smashed into a thousand pieces. Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai has a wonderful storyline but creates too much non-realistic appeal. It however is funny and quite enjoyable to many people. This is why Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai has received a 2/5 Star or an “Ok” rating.
