Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari | Anime Universe

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari | Anime Universe

The first few episodes spelled out with the introduction of four main heroes – the shield, sword, spear, and bow hero. As a double length special, it made sense to draw out as much as Naofumi’s character as possible. Initially, he is portrayed as a man with a sense of honor, dignity, and in general,…

Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san | Worth Watching?

From the first few episodes, it became obvious that schoolgirl Akari Amano takes a liking to a 360-year old vampire named Sophie Twilight. While this strikes as an oddball formula to set up for the series, it works with the fact that the creators wanted to establish an important relationship from the start. Not only…

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: Raihousha-hen | Episode 5

Not going to lie to you, the pacing of the anime is really starting to bother me. As of the time of me writing this, there have been a total of six episodes that have aired, this means that we’re essentially half way through the anime — that alone bothers me. I think what bothers…

Zombieland Saga | Interesting Anime

To be honest, Zombieland Saga isn’t really a horror show at all although the first episode’s opening suggests so with a cliché setting and a young girl facing a crisis between life and death. It manages to trick viewers through its opening and does a 180 degree turn after revealing the series’ real concept –…

Tonikaku Kawaii | Episode 4

It is time to insert a new character to Tonikaku Kawaii, Chitose Kaginoji. Someone who is already showing an extremely, uncomfortable clingy side to her. If you remember, at the end of the last episode (episode 3), when Tsukasa, we see a black vehicle come into frame, stopping the window rolled down at Chitose appeared…

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: Raihousha-hen | Episode 4

One thing I dislike, is that Tatsuya already figured out who Angie Sirius was by the fourth episode. I understand that eventually he would have to know, why put him fighting with Miyuki against her in the OP if they weren’t going to figure out who the person was. I’m saddened that there wasn’t really…
