Your Otaku writer Tantei here. This is the first recipe of the blog.
I first wrote this off as a generic sports type show but soon came to regret it much later as I enjoyed watching it a lot more than most anime this season. Continue reading
This anime is about a gamer that discovered his in-game wife is actually a cute girl? It’s one of those light novels that just serve as fan service and wish fulfilment for its readers, and you can tell it is from a mile away. I honestly wanted to like this anime, because it has something original in it that I personally love.
I have been watching anime for a few years now, and I have been able to learn my things from different anime. Shows like Baby Steps, Gintama, Assassination Classroom, Cowboy Bebop and Days to name a few. They have definitely changed my views on life, relationship, morality, justice, friendship and empathy. Relife is definitely one of these anime, for 13 episodes it uses character development, conflict, or the entertainment to teaches us valuable lessons. Continue reading
At first glance, one would think that this is a yaoi anime, but even without the “shounen-ai” tag, it’s not. It’s one of those rare romance anime where the main characters are the same gender, but the romance is heterosexual. When I first saw this anime, I thought probably the same thing as anyone else who was unfamiliar with this anime before it aired, “This is going to be another borderline-yaoi anime, is it?” Then, I read the description, and my curiosity was piqued. For that reason, I ended up watching it when it premiered, and I must say that it was a fun anime to watch.
The world’s best time travel story is back in a very unique fashion. The “not a prequel, not a sequel” second instalment to Steins;Gate definitely lives up to expectations. Fans of the first will love it. And if you’re not a fan, you need to become one, quick.
One does not introduce Sakamoto. One does not simply require the induction of any mainstream preface to unveil such a magnificent being. He is the true master of swag. A student that does everything in a cool, cooler, and coolest way to help his friends solve their problem and come to as friends.
Bungou Stray Dogs is a weird anime. It has a good story, interesting characters, and amazing fight scenes, but it has a lot of references to Japanese authors that only the most widely read would know. It is nevertheless, enjoyable.It’s such a cool anime, but there are just a lot of weird things done to itThe anime relied on so many comedy gags that it became insulting after seeing the story’s potential. If I can sum up this anime, though, I’d say that it’s bipolar. The normal moments are meant to be a bit tiresome, and it’s on purpose, while the show will suddenly shock you on the other end of the spectrum.
This anime was actually quite the surprise where it was presented at first as a typical battle harem anime, but instead brought us an anime about tactical warfare and two rather unique main characters.
Boku no Hero Academia is pretty textbook Shounen. It’s super formulaic, and the story is predictable. The story elements rely heavily on cliché, and the characters are basic stereotypes you’ll find in any Shounen anime. It’s no surprise because this anime proudly hails from the Shounen Jump lineup. With that being said, though, I f*cking love this anime.I’m really amazed at how reliable of a genre Shounen is. When I first saw this anime, I already knew its bleeding cliché from all over the place. After the first episode, though, I find myself just watching the next episode one after another.

Back in 2010, Final Fantasy XIV was released onto the PC. In the shadow of its predecessor, Final Fantasy XI, fans had very high expectations and were thoroughly disappointed with the product. Causing the developers to do something very clever. Kill the game, spectacularly, and use the cataclysm to set the scene for an improved title. Hence came Final Fantasy XIV 2.0, more commonly known as A Realm Reborn, released in 2013 and to this day stands as on of the best MMO experiences available. Continue reading
