Gamers! spends its first episode lulling audiences into thinking they’re going to get exactly what they expect from an anime called Gamers!. Our hero Keita is quiet and socially awkward and games are the only joy in his life, until Karen, the most popular girl in school, appears out of nowhere and tries to recruit him into her secret video game club. This anime is less about joining a video game competition, but how to confuse people’s feelings for each other and complicate the two male’s relationships within the group.
Coming from what sensei said above, we will be talking about the characters of the show because that is where all the drama of the show comes from the interactions of the group members. There is no end-goal of becoming champions or reviving the club, but so much confusing emotions that will make you cried, laugh and cringe.
So if you have been reading my blog for a long time, you know that I am a big Fate fan, so of course I will be reviewing the third season of this spin-off series about magical girls collecting cards.
This doesn’t look like Fate/Stay Night through? Oh, you guys are talking about the fate there are magical loli girls, instead of the usual men and women fighting in a holy grail war? Well, I did say this was a spin-off and the third season. This series in set in an alternative where the fifth war never happen, and you need to watch the other seasons before this one. Warning, this is the darkest season yet, and this post is a huge fan biased.
The series is based on the video game of the franchise although it has its own set of principles. I watch it because of Ufortable, and now I want a playstation to play the games.

This is how you should aim to live your life, some may say that Tsukushi Tsukamoto is an idiot that doesn’t understand his limits, but he is my hero
Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru (or Konobi for short) is a perfect example of an anime which technically doesn’t do anything particularly different from your average rom-com, but it accomplishes what modest goals it has with flying colours. We have a standard middle school club setting and barely any plot development to speak of; the show is simply about the everyday events the characters experience in their lives, and their interactions with each other. No more, no less. But with characters as interesting and likeable as these and some good laughs to go with them, that’s really all you need to still deliver a very funny and entertaining anime.
The shows about cute girls making games is back. Pouring your whole soul and attention in something you love doing is the best experience that someone can have, a feeling that cannot be described by words thus New Game!! purpose is to portray that feeling through the help of our characters and story.
Kirito On Steroids. He has op powers, black hair and a harem. Is that you Kirito-san?
If you didn’t know I have a soft spot for harem shows. I know they can be mech mech to watch, but I still love them none the less.
Saiki Kusuo no Ψ nan is a comedy slice-of-life story about Saiki Kusuo who has special powers that allow him to do pretty much anything. Yet, when you can do so much, all you want is peace, but you rarely get what you want. Continue reading
Qualidea Code is pretty standard, but not unbearably standard. While the character designs may look generic even if it wasn’t produced by the A-1 picture and the clothing simply a school setting for a sake of simplicity in not giving them unique clothing…
The anime isn’t actually a school setting anime and instead focuses on six characters divide into three groups which run and defend their respective districts. Continue reading
At first glance Mob Psycho 100 is another brilliant comedy written by ONE, the same author of One Punch Man, however upon further viewership, there is much more to be seen. Mob Psycho is actually a character driven story supplemented by humor, and the occasional action sequence. I recommend Mob Psycho to everyone on this planet, and encourage them to watch and to be surprised, just as I was, when they realize they are no longer watching a simple comedy, but complex character story.
