How did I become the unofficial mecha anime reviewer? Where did I go wrong? 10/10, Nice Shot! This is another 'only teen-aged girls can operate our incredibly deadly equipment for some reason!' anime. It's fine. Other premieres in this genre impressed me more, but there's nothing terrible about this one. Feel free to check it … Continue reading First Impressions: Ancient Girl’s Frame
Making a robot that runs on passion is a terrible design choice. Making anything run on passion is a terrible design choice. I'm surfin' on a flatbed~ (sung to the tune of Leaving, on a Jet Plane) That said, this show is actually kinda fun. Check it out. They got nerds, giant robots, and nerdy … Continue reading First Impressions: Rumble Garanndoll
Hey, kids, remember Yu-Gi-Oh? The bread is crying. It's a card game anime. It's good. Especially if you like card game anime.
It's a vampire Battle of the Visual Kei Bands. Watch it for this thing: I don't know what you are, but I love you, you ugly motherfucker. Also, the music's decent. Which, you know, I guess that's important for this sort of thing.
The irresponsibility on behalf of the grown ass adults constantly encouraging a nine-year-old to go 'adventuring' in an area they know to be highly dangerous and even deadly, despite her father's perfectly reasonable concerns, irritates me, but otherwise it's a good show. I'll probably watch it again. Also, I want this weird sheep. I want … Continue reading First Impressions: Sakugan
It's a death game anime. It's got death game anime nonsense. Watch if you enjoy perpetual trauma. 'by nonchalantly informing you that your parents were murdered by your aunt and uncle, and giving you creepy mind control arrows!' I don't care though, so I'm not gonna.
Oh, look, another military mecha anime. Excuse me, miss, how are you making the humming sound with your mouth open? So, I'm conflicted about this one. The animation is off putting in a way I can't quite put my finger on, the boob wedgies look particularly uncomfortable, and I've never been a fan of portrayals … Continue reading First Impressions: Muv-Luv Alternative
Oooo giant robots. I like giant robots. What even are you though? So, I actually did like this one. I'm not usually a fan of mecha anime, but this was really good. The premise is interesting, all the building blocks for a good show are there, and I'm fairly confident they'll be able to pull … Continue reading First Impressions: AMAIM Warrior at the Borderline
First isekai of the season! Let's see how it does! It's fine. Typical isekai fair - bullied kid gets sent to another world, ends up OP as hell in the first five minutes, inexplicable gets attractive female to fall for him despite being as bland as bland can be, and also the show runners think … Continue reading First Impressions: The Fruit of Evolution: Before I Knew It, My Life Had It Made
Dear Makers of Anime, please stop making bad CGI and combining it with otherwise beautiful backgrounds. Please stop making bad CGI full stop. Thank you for your time, sincerely, I could not watch more than five minutes of this show before I got a headache at the goddam obvious disconnect between art styles. No. I … Continue reading First Impressions: Tesla Note
