Bungou Stray Dogs

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.

Flying Witch

flying Witch is possibly the best iyashiki (healing) anime ever made. If you love Aria and Non Non Biyori. , then this is a must-see series. Flying Witch stands out because it has fantasy elements, yet it doesn’t heavily rely on it to drive the story. Every moment of every episode unfolds naturally and organically; there’s a very subtle but unmistakable message that humans (witches or otherwise) are truly inseparable from the earth, plants, the wind, and sky. There’s no overt conflict, no overly energetic comedy bits, and really no plot. I have no idea how an entire episode dedicated to the coming of spring, taking a few walks, and picking fresh wildflower buds for tempura can be utterly captivating, but that’s why Flying Witch is so magical.

Joker Game

It follows a new spy agency in Japan before it enters World War II, and it involves eight spy agents carrying out their various missions. Now that is a cool story anime and the only problem I see with this anime is its length. It was too short. I wanted more!!! The story was far from simple and so it needed more episodes, but it was still complex engaging and an absolute thrill ride from start to finish. I smile at the end of every episode because of the solid writing from the show. It’s just clean and concise, and it’s a pretty rare thing to come by nowadays. Continue reading

Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou – The Last Song

Superheroes, Kaijuu, Super Sentai. All 3 have been long cherished by comic book guys and nerds alike around the world. But what if they were real? What if they existed at the same time in our normal day to day lives. How will we react? This is the world of Concrete Revolutio. An anime original by studio Bones. it was split between the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 seasons, running for a total of 24 episodes. Initially, when I picked up the first half, Concrete didn’t exactly impress me. It wasn’t awful, but the early episodes were not exactly a great first impression for what was to come. And what did come is probably one of the most underappreciated anime of the past few years.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders

The first season of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is truly epic. It’s not like your typical shounen anime where the story drags on too long and feels like its overstaying it’s welcome. The first two arcs seriously felt like an epic. Not like it’s overly awesome, I mean epic as in Beowulf vs Grendel. It’s really about a story of heroism and amazing manliness in the pages of a manga. The anime captured the appeal wonderfully as you witness Jonathan and Joseph Joestar duke it out with a bunch of immortal vampires. Continue reading

Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge

It’s not about simply promoting listlessness, it’s about how others react to it. The main theme is listlessness and the show does a good job of revolving around that theme well. The show gives us situations that put Tanaka’s listlessness to the test and make other characters respond to it with such hilariousness and tact. As the show progressed, it kept introducing other characters that became vital in making the show charming.
