Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho Review

These days, witches are regarded as practitioners of magic and act as the female equivalent of wizards in what would be considered as the pop culture norm for magic. While their original existence no longer has any place in society today, the history of evil witches, people who have made deals with the devil and practice witchcraft still lingers in the ugly recesses of history. With that said, what would happen if you put both of them together? To create a world where in a sense, both the meaning of witches in history and pop culture come together?

Uchouten Kazoku 2 Review

With a very peculiar look into the unique relationships that people forge with each other, the Eccentric Family was an intriguing show featuring a tanuki named Yasaburo as he interacts with various characters, both protagonistic and antagonistic alike, as he inches closer to the truth about his father’s death. Now with a second season, we’re brought back into the world of Uchouten where everything has changed, yet nothing of significance has been really altered. Continue reading “Uchouten Kazoku 2 Review”

Eromanga-sensei Review

The ‘imouto genre’ is an…odd sub-genre to the whole moe craze.  Mostly relying on the forbidden fruit of romantic sibling relationships, most of these shows tend to have ankle-deep plotlines with heavy reliance on fanservice and your typical misunderstanding plots in order to fill out its runtime. If I may be honest here, Eromanga-sensei really is no different. Continue reading “Eromanga-sensei Review”

Clockwork Planet Review

Anime is like a well-oiled machine. When all of its parts work harmoniously together (i.e. the story, characters, aesthetics, and the like), you end up with a piece of work that functions well as a piece of entertainment that has a larger majority of its audience responding well to it. But when there’re sections that don’t really work all that well, then you’ve got a problem. Continue reading “Clockwork Planet Review”

Renai Boukun Review

Love is weird. On one hand, you can fall head over heels for your partner, but you could also want to dig your fingers into their throat because of how annoying they can be. I hope not every relationship is like that, but it can happen. Through it all, love can be hilarious due to how nonsensical the concept it can be when you put it in perspective.  And so help me it’s the only thing driving this series forward. Continue reading “Renai Boukun Review”

Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records Review

Because magic is such a foreign concept grounded in the limits of one’s imagination, the possibilities for stories based around magic are virtually limitless. So what happens when you combine the concept of magic with an arcic harem setup? Well you get this show. Whoever thought this was a good show idea is a bastard for sure. Continue reading “Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records Review”
