This anime is not an anime. You know those romance/visual novel video game walkthroughs on YouTube that show you what happens when you pick all the best romance options for love interests? That's what this is. They don't even try to put in an actual viewer stand in character or stick to one LI per … Continue reading First Impressions: King Of Prism – Shiny Seven Stars

First Impressions: Senryu Girl
Senryu Girl is a short(ish) anime about a girl who communicates by writing down senryu, which are basically just haiku without the requisite nature imagery. It's cute! Kinda basic, I guess. Nothing about the series is a particular standout aside from the focus on classical poetry and the fact that hed boyfriend looks like Bart. … Continue reading First Impressions: Senryu Girl
First Impressions: Ao-chan Can’t Study!
The things I do for my family... A ninja. Ao-chan Can't Study! is about a high school girl who wants to study and keeps getting distracted by icky boys.

First Impressions: Sarazanmai
Don't do drugs, kids. Watch anime, instead.

First Impressions: Yatogame-chan Kansatsu Nikki
Got damn it got awful hot awful quick. Guess that's what I get for living somewhere with no atmosphere. Oh, well. Time for anime. This short is pretty cute.

First Impressions: Cinderella Nine
Yay, sportsball... Excuse me, miss, but where can I find that sweater? I want it. Cinderella Nine is a sports anime about a baseball team. It's fairly standard fare, except that it's about girl's baseball, which is a nice twist on the premise, I suppose. The characters are nice enough, so far, and it's cool … Continue reading First Impressions: Cinderella Nine
