Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara Review

My question for all of this is why you didn’t just make Season 2 a 24 episode long series.  What, did Season 1 and the rabid popularity of it not make enough money to warrant a longer runtime?

Tales of Zestiria the X Review

Ufotable. The name of the production company has an army of fans in its wake from the kind of quality that their adaptations have been able to produce. From story to soundtrack to the oh so god-like animation with a seemingly unlimited budget for just how well produced is looks, very little can be said about Ufo that hasn’t already been said before. And so, we come to their newest project, Tales of Zestiria the X, a game adaptation from one of the “Tales of” games about a boy’s journey to purge the world of malevolence.

Orange Review

Suicide and other mental conditions like it are a difficult subject to comprehend when you aren’t the person who is having the thought or desire to kill yourself thinking that the world would be better off if your existence was wiped from it. It’s something that many people face and it becomes a difficult barrier to overcome when one doesn’t have someone there to try and help. So, we have Orange, a…confusing series that despite having such themes and a plotline revolving around it, doesn’t actually do it very well. Continue reading “Orange Review”

Gyakuten Saiban: Sono “Shinjitsu”, Igi Ari!

The courtroom is a wonderful place full of controversy and despair. Both the prosecution and defense have their own reasonings for choosing their sides, and the verdict in the end is never the most desired outcome. But we’re not here to talk about everyone’s right to a fair trial, we’re here to talk about everyone’s right to a fun trial with A-1’s adaptation of the first two games of Ace Attorney.  God, are any of these cases even legal? Continue reading “Gyakuten Saiban: Sono “Shinjitsu”, Igi Ari!”

Ange Vierge Review

Ok Silver Link, here’s the deal. When you decide on your projects for the season, please spare ALL of us and never make more than one thing per season. Because given your track record, you either spread your budget so thin that you completely ruin everything that you’re making at one time, or, you devote most of your time to one project while leaving the other one to dry with such poor quality that it can be considered as both a waste of money and time. And so, here’s Silver Link’s summer 2016 mistake, Ange Vierge. Continue reading “Ange Vierge Review”

Amanchu! Review

New experiences are both great and terrifying. Some people like them and cherish the ability to expand their horizons whilst others prefer to stay with what’s comfortable with them without venturing out into the unknown to see what’s known. And so we have Amanchu, a story adapted from the original manga from Amano Kozue, telling the story of the new girl in a town filled with new things to explore. Continue reading “Amanchu! Review”

Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! Review

High school anime are a dime a dozen. Whether it’d be moe-related, a bunch of students in a club or whatnot doing stuff, or maybe even the dramatic story detailing a person’s life, high school is the most overused setting for any given anime. So, how do you make such an anime? Well, throw in a couple of oddballs in a seemingly normal club and you’ll get a basic setup for your standard average anime of this type.
