Gushing Over Magical Girls Review — A

The magical girls’ biggest fan becomes the villain and sexually assaults them. Ummm so obviously this may not be for everyone but it was made for our Classy watches. Probably the best show we have ever watched. It’s absolutely nuts, very creative in all the worst ways, and never a dull moment. Storytelling – A – Maybe it’s not about the plot but Voice – A – Absolutely bonkers Characters – A – Every time you think “they won’t go there”… yes. Yes they do… Attention Grab – A– We eagerly awaited each new get together. Production – A – Even the soundtrack made me start laughing a few t ..read more

Undead Unluck Review —A-

Fighting with the power of exploding yourself and groping your girlfriend. This was one of my favorites of the season that no one else seems to be watching. I generally hate fighting shows. But this is really good!!! It keeps all the fights fresh and different by incorporating such ridiculous powers. And the animation is slick. It helps that the plot is also sufficiently nuts and unpredictable. My only complaint is that some arcs were a bit weaker. Especially the mangaka arc the show ended with. Still good, just not as great as the highs. Hope this gets a second season! Storytelling – A – K ..read more

Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End Review — A-
Draggle's Anime Blog

Frieren is old. I love this manga and the anime did not disappoint. Beautiful story, lovingly told. I see so much hate for this show on twitter and I really don’t get it. Yes it’s repetitive— repetition is useful to bring a theme across. Yes Himmel and Frieren never got together— that’s kind of the point. Yes Fern and Stark would be a terrible couple in real life— this is a cartoon. Come on guys. The only reason it’s an A and not an A- is the second half (tournament arc) is the worst part of the manga. It’s pretty good for a tournament arc but it’s still a tournament, and you all know how I ..read more

Metallic Rouge Review — D

Rouge likes chocolate. That’s more or less the only coherent part of the plot. Should have just gone all in on lesbians instead of whatever the fuck this was. What a mess. Part of what makes me so disappointed in Metallic Rouge is that the initial episode was promising! The character designs (especially Naomi) are cute! It’s on Mars, there are robots, the creators have read a book before that they probably weren’t forced to in school! There is mystery and intrigue! And then the reveals come and oh my god I should have watched this drunk. Storytelling – D – Wtf… Voice – C – Started out ..read more

The Witch and the Beast Review — D+

Hunting witches. Whenever I watch an episode, I’m always left wondering— why? It’s a smooth production. The battles can be cool. But it feels so hollow. Vaguely mean and despairing. What’s the point? Why should I care? Storytelling – D – All style, little substance. Voice – C – They tried… Characters – D – Weak. Attention Grab – D – Lost interest about halfway through. Production – B – Looks fine. Overall – D+ Recommendations – Undead Girl Murder Farce which I hated for similar reasons. Thinking about it the premise is vaguely similar to Fullmetal Alchemist but that show does it ..read more

Brave Bang Bravern Review — B+

Big Bang Bravern!!! Ok so I was extremely wrong about this show from the first episode. And understandably so! I tuned out before Bravern even showed up. But after that it ruled. Bravern’s character is just so funny, and seeing all the other characters react to him as well. I also liked Isami’s character— he is absolutely the last person who should be a hero and it’s hilarious. Lulu annoyed me but grew on me towards the end. I love how this show constantly subverted all my expectations. After the first episode it was a great ride. Storytelling – B+ – Good sense of humor. Voice – A – No ..read more
