Y'all remember Gabriel Dropout, the Cute Girls Doing Cute Things show about angels and demons from last year? Man, that was a good show. I'm not entirely sure who this anime is supposed to be for. The fanservice suggests creepy otakus, but the color pallet and cheery narrator are better suited to a children's anime. … Continue reading First Impressions: As Miss Beelzebub Likes It.

First Impressions: Conception
Neither the other reviewers wanted to do this anime, which does not fill me with hope for an enjoyable viewing experience. The world is a dark, cold, cruel place. There is no joy to be found. There is no love. There is no justice. I am filled with burning hatred. And it is all because … Continue reading First Impressions: Conception
First Impressions: Merc StoriA: Mukiryoku no Shōnen to Bin no Naka no Shōjo
Merc StoriA is a new fantasy anime which serves as an adaptation to a free-to-play online roleplaying game available in Japan. It centers around Yuu, a somewhat cowardly little boy with the power to heal the hearts of monsters, and Merc, a liquid fairy girl in a bottle. The first episode never actually tells us … Continue reading First Impressions: Merc StoriA: Mukiryoku no Shōnen to Bin no Naka no Shōjo
First Impressions: My Sister, My Writer
While my dear younger siblings fight over who gets stuck reviewing Conception (since I'm familiar with the source material so I don't gotta do it), looks like I'm going to have to cover Yet Another Siscon Anime. Oh joy. Here's hoping they getting to a point where I can drop it quickly so I only … Continue reading First Impressions: My Sister, My Writer
First Impressions: Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san
This show has a skeleton man. And a bookstore. I like it already. I like this show. This show is good. It has cleansed me of the Show-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named. It has done this with it's charming animation, delightful art style, and amusing characters. Thank you, Honda-san. Thank you. Okay, seriously though. This is a good one. … Continue reading First Impressions: Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san
First Impressions: HIMOTE HOUSE: A share house of super psychic girls
Well, the premise seems promising, at least. Here goes nothing~ I'm sorry. This show was like watching a train wreck. The animation doesn't know whether it wants to be CGI or claymation. The art style keeps changing drastically. The music is boring and keeps playing over the dialogue. The characters are annoying. I don't know … Continue reading First Impressions: HIMOTE HOUSE: A share house of super psychic girls
First Impressions: Anima Yell!
This looks like a cheerleading anime. Involving small children. I will either need a trip to the dentist or bleach for mine eyes, I can already tell. Anima Yell! is adorable for all the right reasons and I insist you go watch it now. The art design is cute, the music is fun, and the characters, both … Continue reading First Impressions: Anima Yell!
First Impressions: Ulysses: Jeanne d’Arc and the Alchemist King
Just going off the title card, this anime looks like the kind that make me wish I drank. Heavily. May the historical inaccuracies be understandable and the pedophilia be nonexistent, forever and ever, amen. I am pleased to report that Ulysses: Jeanne d'Arc-please-don't-make-me-write-it-out-again is actually fairly decent, all things considered. The animation was smooth, the art … Continue reading First Impressions: Ulysses: Jeanne d’Arc and the Alchemist King
First Impressions: SSSS.GRIDMAN
It's a Trigger anime! A real Trigger anime, not a Trigger anime like the last Trigger anime that wasn't actually a Trigger anime, it was just animated by Trigger. It's also a mecha anime, which is always fun! This particular Trigger mecha anime is about an amnesiac teenager with a bizarre psychic link to a … Continue reading First Impressions: SSSS.GRIDMAN
First Impressions: Goblin Slayer
Full disclaimer, dear reader: I'm already familiar with the series Goblin Slayer. I started reading the manga back in December of 2017, and am really only the one covering this review because, as someone who already knows what to expect of this series, there is no way in God's good gracious creation that I'm going … Continue reading First Impressions: Goblin Slayer
