Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review


Ever seen an anime that is so unbelievably adorable that you wish you could cuddle with it for hours on end? Well, there is no shortage of anime that gives off this sensation. The past decade has had no shortage of Cute Girls Doing Cute Things, or CGDCT for short, to the point of over-saturation. Some have been good, bad, or entirely forgettable. Regardless of quality, all of them follow the same formula even when they do a few unique tropes to the characters, narrative, or setting. The only way that I can consider one to be good is if the show manages to be fun to watch from an entertainment aspect and not if it does anything distinctive with other CGDCT anime. Thankfully, Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu, or Hitoribocchi, managed to perk my interest from the 1st episode onward. Continue reading

Date A Live III Review


It’s been a while, hasn’t it? It sure has. Five years, in fact. It sure baffles me that there are people out there that actually wanted more of Date A Live. I thought, after the disaster that was the 2nd season, that people would reject it similarly to Infinite Stratos’ 2nd season that turned out so bad they only released two OVAs and nothing else afterward. Now we get the 3rd installment from none other than J.C. Staff. After I finished watching this, it was evident that they weren’t precisely giving this season to their A-team if you get my drift.

Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! Review


There is a saying in literature, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” In anime, there is another similar one, “Don’t judge an anime by its first episode.” Some would argue more than that, but you get the idea. The first episode in any anime, more often than not, does not always represent what you will be getting for the rest of the show. In recent years, anime studios would have the idea of making the first episode the most eye-catching or batshit crazy one of the rest. Then the rest of the episodes come off tepid or dull compared to the first one. Watashi ni Tenshin ga Maiorita, shortened as WATATEN, fits as an example of this, although from a different result. It gets more fun and enjoyable from beginning to end. Continue reading

Amaenaide yo!! Review


As a noted ecchi connoisseur, I always try to watch old ones that I never got the chance to see rather than wait for the two or three ecchi anime every season and pray they don’t suck. My experience started with the late 2000s with anime like Sora no Otoshimono and later To Love Ru seasons that morphed my obsession with this genre. I never fully experienced all ecchi before the 2010s except for a handful that many consider classics. This eventually led me to come across Amaneide yo!! randomly, or Ah My Buddha. After it was finished, I can safely say that this is definitely not one that many would consider a classic. Continue reading

Top Favorite Queen’s Blade Cuties

As a way to end off my Queen’s Blade Review-a-thon, I thought it would be nice to name off my favorite cuties from the series. I decided to not bother reviewing the small OVAs, spin-offs, and specials because there was honestly not much to say about any of them other than the fact that they are either fun and amusing or pointless and a waste of time. Also, one stipulation on this list is that there will be no Rebellion original characters because none of them were of any grandeur to speak of. The criteria for this list is how aesthetically pleasing the cuties are and how vibrant and colorful their personalities are. Continue reading
