Note: I won’t be doing any reviews or eye candy screen shots because I’ll be damned if I spoil anything for anybody. This series deserves better than that. Enjoy at your own pace!

[REVIEW] Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo

73700l

English title: Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches

Japanese title: 山田くんと7人の魔女

Aired: 2015

Genre(s): Ecchi, Comedy, Romance, School, “Harem”, Supernatural, Shounen

My rating: 8.75/10

TL;DR: “If nothing, watch this show for the FUCKING POWERHOUSE cast of voice actors/actresses.”

The good: You ever get second-hand blue balls from certain ‘romance’ or ‘harem’ anime shows cause nobody ever makes it to first base? This show will cure it. A-L-L . O-F . I-T. Also, Saori Hayami still remains my favorite female VA ever. Also also, I was wrong about best girl, oh my god. She’s been there all along 😦 .

The bad: The ending was… ironic.

The ugly: Great, now I have to marathon through the fucking manga asap. Over 200+ chapters. As if I don’t have other things to catch up on.

[REVIEW] Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai

75106l

English title: SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist

Japanese title: 下ネタという概念が存在しない退屈な世界

Aired: 2015

Genre(s): Comedy, Ecchi, School

My rating: 7.75/10

TL;DR: “Expected Tits and Ass; got Tits, Ass, and a story line!”

The good: If you can, find the uncensored audio + uncensored subtitle files. GOD.TIER. Also, Anna is one of the most godlike female characters in all of anime. Waifu when?

cpbap__vaaewwup

The bad: Excessive ochinkoooooooooooooo jokes

The ugly: Too much story, not enough Ass and Titties

Eye candy:

[REVIEW] Gakkougurashi!

75082l

English title: School-Live!

Japanese title: がっこうぐらし!

Aired: 2015

Genre(s): Horror, Mystery, Psychological, School, Slice of Life

My rating: 8.5/10

TL;DR: “THIS IS WHY 😦 I WILL NEVER EVER 😦 WATCH THESE KIND OF FEELS TRIP SHOWS 😦 . FUCK MAN, 😦 I’M GOING BACK 😦 TO THE ECCHI, HAREM, GUY FALLS ON GIRL AND GRABS HER TIT ANIME SHOWS :(”

The good: God damn, the way the show transitions itself from plot to plot is superb. Character progression is top tier. You know what makes this show so damn amazing? IT’S FUCKING LITTLE HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS TRYING TO DEFEND THEMSELVES IN THIS FUCKED UP WORLD. STOP MAKING THEM SUFFER DAMN IT.

The bad: The manga (source material) is on hiatus. I no longer wish to feel this kind of sadness in my life. I will not read the manga.

The ugly: My face after the ninjas in the room finish cutting their onions.

Eye candy: 

[REVIEW] Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru

76116l

English Title: Beautiful Bones – Sakurako’s Investigation

Japanese Title: 櫻子さんの足下には死体が埋まっている

Genre(s): Mystery

Aired: 2015

My Rating: 7/10

TL;DR: “Mystery anime has never been my thing. This show didn’t change that either.”

The Good: Dark hair-ed onee-chan as our main character? More please!

The Bad: Semi-melodramatic at times. The “mystery” cases really weren’t that serious to be honest.

The Ugly: Felt like they didn’t have much to cover (via source material). Last episode was like a throwaway.

[REVIEW] Charlotte

74683l

English: Charlotte

Japanese:  シャーロット

Aired: 2015

Genres: Superpower, Drama, School

Personal Rating: 7.75/10

TL;DR: “Emotional (and enjoyability) roller coaster. ”

The good: The things I would do to protect this smile –

ggtxusg

The bad: I feel like there was so much to more to explore but you know, 13 episodes and all…

The ugly: Plot pacing was a total wreck. Literal definition of 0-100 real quick or ‘Well, that escalated quickly’.

Uh… so, hi.

Wow it’s been a long time.

A lot of time has passed.

A lot has happened.

Not really up to sharing but I’m alright.

Funny thing, I’m treating this place like a diary rather than anything else.

It’s cool, though.

 

 

More anime reviews to come.

 

Shows I’ve managed to finish during my hiatus

  • Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka
    • Great fucking show. It could’ve been a 9/10 (a score preserved only for my beloved -monogatari series!) if not for a few quirks. I am fucking hype for season 02. Watch this now!
  • Overlord
    • Another great show from 2015. Same feelings for this show as I do for DanMachi (see above). Season 02 hype!
  • Ore ga Ojousama Gakkou ni “Shomin Sample” Toshite Gets♥Sareta Ken
    • Alright so, my personal bias lowered my overall score for this show (read: I spoiler’ed myself digging around for translations on the light novel source material and I find out that the Main Character ends up choosing the worst girl possible.) Don’t get me wrong it’s a pretty decent show. Shame that there’s still a crap lot to adapt from the source material and the TV series left off at such an early point. /r/anime says the TV series sucks booty cheeks compared to the manga version so I’ll be going to that in the near future.
  • Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai
    • This show has me conflicted. It’s rated average on MyAnimeList, has somewhat poor impressions from various anime communities, and yet I kinda fucking liked the show. Sure the pacing was kinda fucked, and the story line as presented by the TV series was kinda fucked, but god damn it- the actual source material is fucking terrific. It got me digging through the light novel source material (PM me if you want a place to read them) and I been reading parts here and there to answer any/all leftover questions I had from the show– and damn was it a lot.

Shows I’ve decided to drop during my hiatus

  • Military! (a unfunny TV short, how do you fuck this up man?)
  • Kamisama Hajimemashita season 01 (I thought I actually liked this show yet after taking a hiatus from it (and anime in general), when I came back to it— it sucked.)
  • Kamisama Hajimemashita season 02 (see above)
  • Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou (Please don’t kill me. I’m sorry. Softcore hentai involving monster girls didn’t quite turn me on as much as I thought it would)
  • Koufuku Graffiti (Food porn and cute girls, yet I was neither triggered to eat nor fap)

[REVIEW] YANDERE KANOJO

TITLE

Yandere Kanojo


ALTERNATE

Yandere Girlfriend, ヤンデレ彼女


MAL LINK

https://myanimelist.net/manga/14504/Yandere_Kanojo


TRANSLATORS USED

Vexed Scans


RATING

7/10


TL;DR

picked up, dropped, waited, re-picked up, finished, enjoyed.


CONCLUSION

Overall, a pretty clean-reading manga from start to finish. 4-koma styled manga that does well in delivering reading enjoyment in quick and efficient jabs. If you’re looking for a decent comedy-based manga with spurts of drama and romance, I’d recommend picking this up for a decent little read. Obviously art is gonna be mediocre (2008 origins) but it does get slightly better towards the end releases.

5/10


TL;DR

What a time to be alive.


CONCLUSION

It’s a bit sad seeing stuff like this get animated (even though it’s a TV short) when there are countless underappreciated/entertaining series’ out there that nobody bats an eyelash at.

 

Just kinda sad, really.

 

Barely.
