Japanese video media reviews

So I have been watching things like anime and other things from Japan for most of my life. I realised recently what the main appeal to Japanese media is for westerners. It’s that the west is lacking in inspiration, creativity, emotion and many other things that the average person desires, without them knowing it. As such, I’ve decided to keep a review log of what I have seen. I have seen so much that I’ve forgotten most of them, so this will probably never be a complete list. But I will add to it as I remember them and as I watch new things

Re Zero: Starting Life In Another World5/12/2018100A lot of reviews of this say that the characters are close to cliches, but because they are implemented in a way that doesn't allow the author or the viewer/reader to impose themselves on the characters it makes it a masterpiece. It is a masterpiece.60The problem with the reviews is that I CAN identify with the main character. I constantly desire to watch this again, but at the same time I can't bring myself to do it for a number of personal reasons.
Samurai X - trust and betrayal24/09/201899Short, but incredible powerful. Has everything a man needs.90Watched too many times to remember.
Attack on Titan S1-s3 (half of s3) + ova24/09/201899Unique story, excellent delivery, instils emotion and inspiration, magnificent. 95Will always be able to watch this again. Always inspires.
Code Geass - Lelouch of the Rebellion2/7/1999Extremely inspiring. Has some very emotional parts, but often lacks some common sense decisions on what should be some very smart characters. While it might appear to perhaps be a sign that all people have weaknesses, I feel it was either poor writing, or over done. 2/7/19 I revised the score. I feel the parts I was using to lower the score were more important than I realised. 85Have watched several times. Would watch again. Fits me very well.
Tekkaman Blade (american and original)25/09/201899This score is incredibly biased. The american version that was first aired when I was a kid changed me and set me in a certain direction. In my mind at the time, it was the greatest thing I had ever witnessed and my life was never the same. As an adult I would rate this a bit lower. But the Japanese version is completely different and makes that rating go up again.40I always have this little urge to watch this, but I have already watched it several times.
Neon Genesis Evangellion10/10/201898 / 90Here is the thing. When this first came out, decades ago, it was different to what you can find now. I have looked everywhere for the original and was not able to find it. Although, to be fair, I didn’t look hard. The original is 98, the one I ended up watching a few years ago, is 88. Great show and a classic that hasn't been met.70most likely. Every now and then if I have some down time.
Full metal Alchemist / brotherhood24/09/201898 / 85The original full metal alchemist, while not true the manga, was fantastic. Some of the most memorable scenes of any media are from this. Brotherhood just didn't work out the way they had hoped. However, it would seem people liked it better because it was true to the manga. But if you watch brotherhood on its own without reading the manga or the first anime, its pretty rubbish.75 / 10Watched the original a few times now, very good. As far as I'm concerned, there should not have been a brotherhood.
Clannad + After Story23/05/201898Absolutely fantastic. Well done in so many fronts. A few flaws based on its source material but it all worked out so well. Very good emotional pulls. Makes you rethink your life a bit.50Once you know everything it has less of an impact, but probably worth going back to in a couple of years.
Trigun + Movie24/09/201898Magnificent. Misses just a bit of that extra touch of emotional pull. The movie did not add or subtract anything to the series.90probably watched through more than 12 times. Probably would not watch it again recently giving how I have changed since it first came out.
Kizumonogatari2/7/1997I have separated this from the rest of the series (Nekomonogatari to Hanamonogatari in this list) because this one is still the greatest of them all. It is important to note, that this and the rest of the series is not something I would have enjoyed as a child or useless young adult. I will continue the review in the other entry, but know that this is art of a very high level but it may have an acquired taste (eg, not be a moron)60The whole series is VERY LONG and I am unlikely to voluntarily choose to watch this again, even if it is better than the rest.
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress S124/09/201897Damn good.65Watched a couple of times, will rewatch again once season 2 is out.
Soul Eater24/09/201897Fantastic and I always found it very pretty in a weird way. Has enough humour and seriousness to keep it high on this list.87Have watched several times, always up for it again. All worth it for when Death finally decides to get involved.
One punch man 1-125/12/201897What a great show. Inspiring, a good laugh, good creative moments. Some boring moments in writing, just a bit.55Sure, why not. Already seen in a couple of times.
Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation2/7/1997Absolutely great. Not japanese at all! It's my site! I'll do what I want.85Very much so. Very pretty and fun to just watch
Overlord S1-S224/09/201897Very good. Would be pretty high up if not for the fact I can not see the core concept ever being explained and a point lost for some irrelevant bits. Cant wait for the third season to be completed.85High chance I will at some time.
Ergo Proxy25/09/201897Excellent.81I learn something new every time I watch this and the meaning of the ending is in the entire show, but it takes a lot of deducting to work out and its great.
Darling in the FranXX2/7/1996.5I need to be really careful here as my score has been created with a LOT of things in mind. Putting aside the gay robots, the cliches and the gay ass cliche ending, this to me is great. If I had watched this 15 years ago this would have been a masterpiece. In my older age I appreciate it greatly for what it is, but some things annoy me. 2/7/19 I've added .5 to the score. I like it better than I logically scored it. 70I think this has some alright replay value.
Sword Art Online + 224/09/201896I can't go too much into the detail of this one. But the main character is a little bitch and poorly written. Very good anime though. While number 2 didn’t really add anything, I felt it didn’t take anything away. 80I have been wanting to watch this one again for a while. But I don't think it will be a good idea. Various reasons.
The Twelve Kingdoms27/09/201896Very good. Hits a lot of development points and has some good inspiration.73Seen it a few times, think Im due tfor another one.
Aho Girl2/7/1996Short and I am pretty sure I laughed every episode. Good stuff.70Yes. Will watch again randomly some day for sure.
Overlord S318/10/201896Still good, starting to drag on a bit. 85High chance I will at some time.
Alderamin on the Sky2/7/1996I love this stuff. Real good. Very disappointed that it is unlikely to continue.85There are actual relevant lessons in war and life in this. Very good.
Log Horizon 1+25/12/201896One of the better "stuck in game" ones. Very good actually. In many ways it is similar to sword art online, but it trades emotion for some pretty interesting story. I look forward to the continued story.75Probably watch it with the wife sometime soon.
Eden of the east13//7/1996I watched this a few years ago but I still remember how good it made me feel. I liked it a lot and came away with some lasting concepts.64It has been a while since I watched it and I have no issues thinking about watching it again, but I think its missing a bit of real pull to make me watch to watch it again amongst all the stuff I haven't watched.
Houseki no Kuni 27/7/1996Stunningly unique and interesting. I loved it the entire way through. Not really emotional or inspiring, but so... refreshing?83Oh yeah I want to watch this again. Bring on more seasons!
Ajin S1-225/09/201896The animation might be a bit weird at first, but this is damn good. Lacks a lot of inspiration and emotion of other animes, but it’s a good thriller type.55Seen it a couple of times, wouldn’t feel bad watching it again. Some scenes are mint.
Cromartie High School25/09/201896Extremely entertaining and funny. A must.75Very rewatchable, have seen it a few times.
Excel Saga25/09/201896Epic. Best Newspaper delivery scene in any media ever.80Watched it many many times.
Baccano24/09/201895Incredibly well put together. Highly recommended.20Once you know all the secrets and twists there isn't much to it, but I think enough time has passed at that I have forgotten some of the key twists. Maybe.
Wolf's Rain25/09/201895An excellent story. Although a bit lame at the end.70Have watched it every few years.
Gate2/7/1995I loved this for stupid reasons. I am a man after all and this was clearly targeted at men. Nothing more to say. Figure it out for yourself.78Yes. Much enjoy.
Charlotte27/7/1995This was really good. A lot of unique tie ins and a subtle but moderate amount of emotion. I went into this with limited expectation and was blow away.68Might be part of my bi yearly rewatch cycle. Mmm. Maybe every three years.
Orphen25/09/201895Very good and a classic to me.65I have seen it a few times over the years.
Paprika24/09/201895Being a movie is what holds this back. But it’s a damn good one and really hits the nail on the head as a metaphor for modern society. And the parade music is fantastic.55Wife likes it more than me.
Detroit Metal City (original)25/09/201895Haha, great show, great moments, great music.60yeah, why not.
Beserk24/09/201895Extremely inspiring with a moderate touch of emotional. Great story and great character development.70have seen it multiple times.
Angel Beats2/7/1995Quite emotional, but not the way I really liked. Still very much up there though. Some very funny moments. VERY.75Yeah, I can see myself watching it again. Not sure why though.
Zoids Chaotic century24/09/201895Good good stuff. Still get that little tingle when watching this as an adult as I got as a kid.75Always open for a rewatch of this.
Claymore24/09/201895I really like this and I actually don't know why. I felt something, but couldn't pin point it. My wife didn’t like it. It annoys me though, that it had no discerning ending. Like, not even a milestone ending. 40If more of it comes out I will watch the first season again.
Nekomonogatari to Hanamonogatari13/7/1994Wow that was a long and incredibly interesting and mentally exhilarating ride. As per Kizumonogatari (the start of this series), I would say that at least half of this would go over my head had I watched it 10 years ago. Not for my kids. Extremely unique and engaging writing. Characters that are real. If they had lessoned some of the... NON KEY SCENES... (if you have seen this you would understand), this would be very close to a masterpiece. 17I'm not going through that again. Oh no. But at the same time, there is a little voice in my sub sub conscious. It whispers, "but you could."
Parasyte24/09/201894Great show, great unique concept, great logic. Not very inspiring or emotional. A high recommendation still. 30Nothing specially about it really, but once my memory fades I wont mind watching it a bit again.
Death Note - Animated24/09/201894Absolutely great. I was enthralled right until the end. Which is where those last points were lost.35Not really. Once you know all the twists and secrets that allure is kind of gone.
Eureka 725/09/201894This should get a higher score, but some of the key points get dragged on a little bit and some of the characters "weaknesses" seem over done. But a good one regardless.66Oddly enough I have watched this several times and enjoyed it each time.
Seven Samurai24/09/201894Very good, bit of inspiration, interesting concept and world, a couple of writing drops I would say though. Very fun to watch65Have already watched is several times, never hurts to see it again
Assassination Classroom2/7/1994Once you get over how stupid the main character looks, you get a pretty unique and enjoyable anime with a genuinely sad ending. I also mean unique quite strongly. 60Being unique leaves it open to watching again. Some interesting ideas to re visit. Not really engaging in the inspiration or emotional level though. (over all that is)
No Game No Life S1 + Zero movie26/10/201894Very interesting concept, empowering despite being extremely light and full of humour. Has too many Japanese panty jokes though. Movie was pretty good and very relevant to the story. (unlike many other movies)40Meh. Maybe.
Vampire Hunter D bloodlust25/09/201894I love this movie a lot. But because I haven't seen the original 1985 one at the time of writing, I am left with a lot of unanswered questions. It actually makes me feel a little hollow.74I've watched it a few times and enjoyed each time.
Gun X Sword20/12/201894Was pretty good. Felt a big like they were trying to cash in the trigun and cowboy bepop thing (understandable due to some shared creators). But still good.50Actually not that bad to rewatch after a while
Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records2/7/1994This was pretty fun to watch and it wasn't really my style either. That's the great thing about well written work.60It ends too soon (obviously being only a standard size run) and leaves a few questions open. Will probably watch again happily if more comes out.
Nadesico25/09/201893Haha, what a great joy ride this anime is. I don’t know why I like it so much, but I do. 61I've watched this a lot. I still don't know why. And I never feel bad when I watched it again.
Zankyou no Terror13/7/201993It was pretty good. The story was engaging and interesting. Not inspiring, but a good experience.30Not really. It was good but the allure was the progression of the story and once you know it its not as appealing.
Ancient magus bride23/05/201893This was really good and a nice change amongst what is mostly coming out (and what I am watching). It has an interesting pace and is very enjoyable just to look at. And graphics and style do not often have an impact on my way of thinking.60Wouldnt hurt. But it wasnt engaging enough to make me want to go back and watch again.
Death Parade + Death Billiards27/7/1993Very interesting. Not much more to say. Its a bit short and the story is a bit limited, but it was an enjoyable experience.70I'm giving it a high re watchability score, not because I want to watch it again, but because I believe this wont die as an experience. It is quite pleasant.
Hellsing (original)24/09/201893Mighty fine show. Written well, missing a lot of inspiration and pull, but very entertaining.60I would probably get around to watching the Ultimate version, but I have watched this version a few times over the many years since it came out.
Rahxephon + Movie27/09/201893Over all I liked it, but at the same time I felt there was some flaws in the writing. The movie supposedly corrected these flaws. But as most recap movies do, they just make things worse over all. The score I have given here does not actually include the movie. It was a waste of time and just confuses people. 65I've actually seen this a few times. There is something about it that I enjoy coming back to.
Jormungand S1+22/7/1993I quite liked this. I liked the concept and the ideals and the idea. Any show that kind wants to make you want to take part, even if life threatening, is well made. 65I will probably re watch the whole lot without complaint when the next lot comes out. If.
Psycho Pass24/09/201893Excellent story and plot, but got predictable towards the end. Also, I remember some stupid stuff happening, but cant remember why I thought it was stupid.60Maybe get around to rewatching it once and then probably not again.
Dragon Ball Z (American dub)24/09/201893People always go on about the screaming and such. But I still loved this show. Still feel the same about it today as I did 15 years ago when I first saw bits of it.50I will be rewatching it soon, but it will be during dinners and not as a binge. I haven't seen it in many years and my wife hasn’t seen it, so after this I might not watch it again for 10 years. The problem with very long shows.
The vision of escaflowne25/09/201893The music in this is amazing. The over all anime though isn't as good. But still very good.29It's been a long time since I last saw this, but it probably wont be watched anytime soon.
Plastic memories24/09/201892Very good, written extremely well, ended exactly as expected, but still very emotional.20yeeeah, probably not.
My bride is a mermaid25/09/201892A bit boring in some places, but those scenes and concepts that are funny are some of the funniest things I have ever seen in any anime. At the time or writing this show has the funniest character in any anime that I have seen.31Some of those boring parts are really boring.
Dragon Ball25/09/201892Haha, this was great, but for stupid reasons. Very long, as these sort of shows are, but I still liked it.24Too damn long and too kiddy to really want to go back and watch it.
Great Teacher Onizuka2/7/1992This had been on list of things to watch for a long time. It didn't disappoint. Not really good for anything fancy other than laughs.45A bit too long for a rewatch and wouldn't get much out of it, but wouldn't complain if watched again with wife or similar.
Blue Excorsist s1+22/7/1992Was pretty good. Nothing amazing, but well put together and enjoyable. 40Nah. Had some annoying moments and too many open questions.
Vandread25/09/201892I actually really want to think this is a stupid anime and in many places it is stupid, but it has an epic build up that suits me very nicely.58I've watched this more times that I thought I actually would.
Monster24/09/201892Very well written and perfectly put together. It was however slow, but I have a hard time holding it against this because I feel that if it went faster it would have put strain on how well it was put together. Regardless, this is where most the points were lost35Too long and I know the secrets and twists.
Deno Coil26/09/201892Good, done well, good concept and implemented well. Characters a bit annoying, but they are children after all.28I liked it a fair bit, but it doesn’t really warrant a rewatch.
KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World!24/09/201892A lot of shows coming out about being sucked into an alternate game style universe, this one is not serious at all. I found it quite entertaining, but sometimes the stupidity of the characters can be difficult to deal with. But at least they stay true to their characters50Will want to see the sequels, but not interesting in going back again.
Black Butler 1 and 2 + book of circus2/7/1992I wanted to give this a 90. But had to give it an extra bit solely for one OVA episode. The show is alright, kinda doesnt go anywhere, but that one OVA is the greatest episode of anything I have ever seen. You will understand when you see it.35Nah.
Steins Gate24/09/201892Great anime, well implemented concept, but a bit annoying in places.20Not really. Knowing what happens in the future and past ruins it.
The Devil is A part Timer24/09/201891A good amount of laughs. Good show.78Yeah, eventually. Definitely will want to watch more if they release more.
Planetes25/09/201891Its very good, also a good example of why space is shit. I would say it is recommended watching for sure.45I seen in a couple of times, probably enough, but I wouldn’t feel bad if I saw it again
My Hero Academia s1-323/10/201891I enjoyed it a fair bit, has good progression. The inspiration feels hollow though.30Will watch more as I come across it, but not much point rewatching in my opinion.
Code Geass - Akito the Exiled24/09/201891I liked it, found it lacking some of the writing of the main story, also the 3d models felt a bit cheap. Also, Akito was a little wimp.45I have watched it twice, but not as interesting as the main story.
Haven't You Heard I'm Sakamoto2/7/1991I liked it, short, quick, get a nice set of chuckles. 70These sort of short quick to the point shows have a lot of rewatch value.
Dragon Ball GT25/09/201891A good continuation of Z. A good ending to the greatest passive character ever.35Only if anyone ends up rewatching Z. Maybe the kids.
.hack//sign24/09/201891Really good and enjoyable, however the main character while designed to be insufferable, is really insufferable. Also, a lot is left unexplained. Refer to other review55I have actually watched this multiple times, but I think there are more interesting things to watch these days that are more engaging and stimulating.
From the New World24/09/201891This should be a 98 or a 99, but it hit a number of moral points that make sense on scientific level, but then the show glorified it and it took a lot of it away for me.0A must watch for adults, but I will never watch it again. I almost did not add it to this list.
Vampire Knight + Guilty15/7/1991I watched this at the request of a friend. She warned me it might be gay. It was a little gay. But the kind of gay you apply to the teen girl market. But you know what? If you put aside the fact that its gay (and I don't mean literally, like some of the rubbish that has been coming out), it has an amazingly written story. If you can even put aside how stupid some of these characters appear to be, there's a little emotion and inspiration in there too. 26Unlikely.
Howl's moving castle24/09/201891I like it. But being a movie, no real engagement or feel can be inserted in time. 40It wasn’t too bad, wife liked it so would probably suggest it during a quiet period for a quick bit of entertainment.
Gosick27/7/1991Every now and then I decide to watch something random and stupid (at least to me). I usually end up enjoying myself. Thanks Japan. Went in expecting to bail after the first episode, stayed for the story.30Probably not. It's good, but only slightly memorable.
Samurai X - reflections24/09/201891I had hoped for another Trust and Betrayal, just got another of the main story. It was good and gave closure, but for some reason it felt hollow.50Eh.
Samurai X - main story24/09/201890Was good, but had some annoying moments and moments of disbelief. 50Meh
Rozen Maiden (first set)27/7/1990I went in with the idea of watching this as a joke. Walked away having enjoyed the experience. Weird. Seriously, weird to have enjoyed this. But I did. Don't know why.33Unlikely, but it has been a while and I COULD see myself watching it again.
Princess Mononoke24/09/201890Good movie. I generally do not find movies engaging enough.39Meh.
Sengoku Basara24/09/201890Was damn fun to watch. Has some great memorable moments. A little haze in the writing though.50Could do it.
Chobits25/09/201890Covers its topics well and hits a bit of emotion too. Good show.40I have actually watched this a few times, I might again if something comes up that warrants it. Its not that its not bad, its not want I currently desire.
Gakkou Gurashi!2/7/1990Look, it's good. But annoying. I understanding these are supposed to be younger japanese girls, but they did some really dumb stuff that annoyed me. 50Eh.
Robotech25/09/201889This is a bit of a classic from my childhood. Its ok, has some awesome ideas and concepts, but falls short in a number of places. Such as the actual characters.28I want to watch the second one, I started it many years ago and never finished it. I would probably rewatch the whole thing from scratch if I ever did.
Ghost in the Shell - original movie24/09/201889Is good, is interesting. As for all movies, its over by the time you feel like you could or would engage46I've seen it a few times, it is a good quick movie.
One piece 1-50~24/09/201889I read a lot of the manga before I started watching this but it has no influence on my opinion of this. At the time we didn’t have access to the rest of the episodes so we stopped watching. It is good, typical of this style though. No very inspiring and cheesy at times.70I keep telling myself I need to finish this, but never get around to it. It is very long and that might be why I haven't. Stories have to end.
Shiki27/7/1989I'm not really into these ones but my wife likes them so I end up watching a few. It was pretty good though, confusing but highly interesting plot mechanism. Haven't seen anything like it and it makes it very memorable. 20Nah, as said, not really into it. I like emotion and inspiration and this has minimal amounts.
Mirai Nikki + Redial23/7/1989Why am I watching this? What is going on? Why can't I stop watching this? This is stupid. This is great. - These are the thoughts that went through my mind continuously while watching this. +2 points for convincing me of the value of a psycho stalker girlfriend. -5 points for convincing me of the value of a psycho stalker girlfriend. Most infuriating protagonist ever. This show was an experience I would recommend to most... some... certain people. Must finish with redial.2No. No. Nope. Not watching this again. Maybe if my wife watches it I will cheat on her with a psycho stalker in the hopes she will kill me as some sort of twisted suicide (Either my wife or the stalker).
Haibane Renmei25/09/201888I actually really enjoyed this, but so many questions were left unanswered I was left unfulfilled. Even though I am quite certain the point was to leave people wondering, I think they too it too far.20Meh.
Made in Abyss 1-1224/09/201888Good characters, good story, unique concepts. A bit too soft in writing sometimes, but over all very good.20I really look forward to watching the rest of this, but nothing about it really makes me want to go back and watch it again and I don't see myself wanting to refresh in 5 years time.
Spirited Away24/09/201888A good watch. Typical of movie length things though, not very engaging to me.25I've seen it a few times via circumstance and if I was to watch it again I wouldn’t be overly unhappy, but I wont go out of my way.
Trinity Blood17/12/201887Many times I thought the writing was ham fisted and cliched. But I still liked it. Wish it touched on some more of the lore a bit and the ending was terrible. However, cant be too disappointed after learning the author died before he could finish it. Oh well. Good music too.30Eh.
Another24/09/201886It was good, well done, but wasn't really my kind of thing. My wife loved it though, she likes the horror stuff. 10I already know the secrets. No real point.
Guilty Crown24/09/201886I really wanted to like this one more than I did. It had a lot of good things going for it, but there was some very jolted writing. It nearly hooked me emotionally a couple of times, but failed. 30Might watch it with the wife, will probably be it.
Noragami + Arogato + OVA24/09/201886Interesting idea, bit lacklustre in anything really. 20I will watch the next seasons as they come because they left too many unanswered questions, but I feel like this is how they will end every season.
Samurai Champloo24/09/201886This is a good show. Actually really good. But one of the characters and the writing around them really brought it down for me. Oh well.40Meeeeh… it has been a while since I saw it.
Elfen Lied24/09/201885I don't know why people go on about this one. It is good and has moments that apply to me, but for the most part it wasn't that interesting. However I didn't really hate it. 15While I don't regret watching it and at the time of writing this I've actually forgotten most of what happens, I think there would be better things to watch.
Cowbow Bepop + movie24/09/201885It was good, but something just didn’t hook me well enough.30It has been a long time since I last saw it and it would be good to see it again, but my watching time is limited and I've already seen it and it just doesn’t have the pull.
Pokemon - first several seasons24/09/201885Since I was a child of the pokemon games, this will always be of interest to me. Its pretty cheesy, but its good to put up and watch while your doing something else.39Honestly, I've watched a fair bit and rewatched a bit too, but its just a thing that happens really.
JoJos bizarre adventure (2012) S1+224/09/201885Interesting and cliched, enjoyed, but got little out of it. Emotion and inspiration is minimal, but some is there.15I will continue to watch the next seasons and so on as I come across them, but I have almost no desire to go back and watch this again.
Gurran Lagenn24/09/201884This one is tricky. I think I started watching it out of boredom and thought it was really garbage. But for what I believe was just laziness, I keep watching it. Turned out to be an epic inspiring anime at the very end. Worth the pain of the first part.20I'm not going through that first part again. But I might with enough encouragement.
Seven Deadly Sins (Most of it)24/09/201884Completed the first main part, but the part that came after it (after they save the city) didn’t finish. At the time there were no episode available and both me and my wife were getting bored of it. It has some really interesting concepts. But they seem copy and paste and was no longer really engaging at the end. May come back to finish it since I started it, it was still entertaining.15Dunno. So lacklustre in the second part. Haven't finished it, but even once I do, will probably not come back.
Satsuriku no Tenshi (Angels of death)5/11/201884I wanted to watch this because oo the siginifcant differences in reviews. Some were praising it greatly others were writing it off as garbage. It was interesting and honestly, I don’t know what I thought of it. I feel like it has had an impact, but at the same time I feel like I wasted my time. I watched the entire thing in one day as I was tired and sick and I am typing this the next day. I feel something. Not sure what it is.25Hrrm. Nah. But meh.
Digimon - the first set of seasons24/09/201883Was actually interesting, if not cheesy, like pokemon. But not something I would actively watch. However, I never actually got to the end of the first main story, so I have it on my list to watch at home at some time. But I keep watching other things40Eh.
akame ga kill23/10/201883Almost every episode presented a hook for me, then they pretty much got rid of it. In the last 4-5 episodes the hooks finally stayed and then it ended. I told someone that this was a shit show half way through, but in some ways now I sort of take that back. Would never watch it again, but I felt a little. Despite most of the characters annoying the hell out of me, their blantant retardation, I ended up enjoying it somewhat.30Not really.
Cashern Sins24/09/201881I didn’t watch the original, but when I started watching this it hooked me. Aaaand then it lost me. Has good moments and a good theme, but its kind of slow and just sort of… deus ex mechina.15Maybe if I ever watch the original.
Fist of the North Star (original, first 70 or so episodes)25/09/201880I really wanted to like this one a lot more. It's actually not that bad, but it had no hooks. No real emotion or inspiration. Perhaps it did when it was first drawn, but when I watched it I felt it lacking. I still want to finish it, but I doubt I ever will.10even if I finish it, I probably would not watch it again. Its too slow.
Kill La Kill18/10/201879If deus ex machina was an anime. Has some humour and interesting moments.0No.
.hack//sign (Most the others after the original )24/09/201878Didn’t answer the questions I had in the original show. Progressively got worse.10I doubt it.
Yu-Gi-Oh (first season or two)5/12/201874Eh. Seto Kaiba was the real star of this show. And he should have just taken a gun and shot every one. Would score 100 if this was the case.11I finished the first and I THINK the second season, might go back to complete the watch, but I doubt it.
Orphen - Revenge25/09/201871A poor continuation of the original. But it had some interesting moments.0No.
Fate / Zero 1+25/12/201863I don't know why this one got such high scores. It just felt so badly written, was so un engaging and not a single thing explained. Sure, there are more continuations of this, but it was so poor I had zero inclination to watch more. However, at the same time it did have some insightful things that I found interesting. Without this I would have given it a very low score.8No
Tokyo Ghoul + root a + RE +OVA30/10/201861Poorly written, characters are meanginless, a thousand questions left unanswered. We (I and my wife) nearly stopped watching halfway through the first season, in the end we stuck with it because we were already invested. In the end nothing was really gained. Emotion is fake, inspriation zero. But at the same time, you just want to know what happens next. Sugest dont watch at all to avoid this sensation. 10If more comes out in the future. Someone has to answer all those questions never answered. But I will never go back to this again.
Durarara (Most of it)24/09/201855Has some fantastic moments and characters, but got so seriously boring and drawn out that both me and my wife just gave up on it and stopped watching. Despite all the good moments, the fact that I couldn’t finish it means it was shit.6It had its chance, it blew it.
Higurashi: When They Cry (Several seasons)24/09/201851Putting the confusing way this show was put together aside (because it works in the end), it is incredibly slow. Also putting aside how quickly every one goes crazy (because it works in the end), I think the actual plot line is a deus ex machina for a reason for gore. Its interesting, but we didn't actually finish it, because its also slow. Boringly slow.5Watched a lot of it, but there was too much and it was too boring and never finished it. It had its chance.
Red Garden7/12/2018I watched this a while ago for reasons I can't explain. It turned out to be incredibly interesting and enjoyable. I wont rate it because I don't remember the details, but it was a something new and interesting.
InuYasha (main episodes)2/7/19IN PROGRESS - but Imnot going to lie. Im about 70 episodes in and im getting really bored. I probably wont end up finishing it. It started really well, but is looking like an 82 or so at the moment.
Code:Realize2/7/19IN PROGRESS - but Im struggling. I kind of like it, but its not engaging enough.
Witchhunter robin24/09/2018Watched, but can not remember a thing about it
Gintama (First)24/09/2018Watched the first several episode or so and just straight out was not interested.
FLCL24/09/2018Watched, but can not remember a thing about it. Other than it was nuts
Beyblades S125/09/2018I watched the entire first seasons. I don’t know why. It was a long time ago. I don’t think I regret it, but I cant score it. I also do not think I ever want to rewatch it again.
Pandora Hearts25/09/2018I actually never finished this, however I did intend to. I only was just reminded of this while going through anime lists to try and figure out what I had watched in the past. Will score when I get around to rewatching and finishing.
Azumanga Daioh25/09/2018I watched the first 3 or 4 episodes and lost interest. Wife watched the whole lot and did not push me to watch it, so obviously it was a good choice.
Serial experiments lain24/09/2018This had same amazing concepts that I thoroughly liked, but I watched it so long ago I cant remember most of it, so I'm not rating it yet.
Outlaw star25/09/2018I watched it a long time ago, but cant remember. Some of the music was really good and I still listen to it today. No score until I rewatch.
Card Captor Sakura25/09/2018Actually surprisingly good for its target audience. I never finished it but I do want to at some stage. Wont score it until then.
Paranoia agent24/09/2018I liked it and wanted to like it more, but I sort of felt like enough wasn’t answered in the end. I actually can't really remember enough about this, so I'm not rating it right now.
My Neighbour Totoro24/09/2018I watched it, but I don’t remember much about it. It was average
Tenchi Muyou (original)25/09/2018Watched it long time ago. I don’t want to score it until I rewatch it.
Sket dance27/6/19Watched 3 or 4 episodes. Was not interested.
Blue submarine no 625/09/2018I can't even remember what it was about. But I think I found it alright.
Night Head Genesis26/09/2018I scored this anime, then removed it as I feel I would need to watch it again to rate it properly. It was years ago.
Natsume Yuujinchou San2/7/19IN PROGRESS - But it's not looking good. Its too slow for me, too repetitive, boring. I think I watched up past the second season. Score probably looking at high 70s.
Black Cat26/09/2018Yeah, I did watch this, maybe 10 years ago. Stuffed I can remember what happened in it. I think I left feeling a little disappointed.
High School DxD (1st episode only)18/10/20190If I wanted to watch a soft core shitty hentai, I wouldn't have picked the 61st most popular anime from myanimelist0Its whorific.
