[Anime Review] Kill la Kill

So, as anyone who has read any of my anime reviews post-Gurren Lagann will know, I really like Gurren Lagann. However, it turns out the team behind Gurren Lagann made other shows that are a) not Gurren Lagann and b) actually quite good as well. It behooved me to check them out, and so I was recommended the show about a girl who wears a magical brassiere with blood powers: let’s get into Kill la Kill!

[Anime Review] Nichijou

In order to keep my anime education going, I was finally forced to stop rewatching Gurren Lagann and watch something that isn’t really shounen anime, but instead a more comedic, slice-of-life genre of show. And then Nichijou was placed in front of me. So, uh… here we go?

[Anime Review] Yu-Gi-Oh!

Well, there’s nothing that screams ‘shounen’ quite like this ancient, classic anime. I don’t use classic positively, though. Yu-Gi-Oh!, the anime that inspired a million memes and just as many poor voice acting decisions: but how many people can claim to have actually watched it? Well, not me – I only watched up to episode 6. There are many reasons why, but it basically boils down to Yu-Gi-Oh! being as predictable and boring as the weather in the middle of an arid desert. And being shit.

[Anime Review] Black Clover

I had nothing better to play this week (I am making progress in Cuphead, I promise) so I decided that I’d use the time to wax lyrical on the anime I watched and dropped quickly afterwards: Black Clover – most notably, the first few episodes. Since, well, they’re all I’ve seen of it.

[Anime Review] Gurren Lagann

More anime. Looks like this is becoming a regular thing, so I suppose there’s not much I can do but keep talking about various anime shows until I can convince other people that I actually know what I’m talking about. That said, I’ve finished watching all 27 episodes of Gurren Lagann; so how does it compare to the other shows I’ve seen? Or show, I suppose, since I’ve only really seen My Hero Academia. WARNING: This is going to be very spoiler heavy. Because I have a few things I absolutely need to discuss later on.

[Anime Review] My Hero Academia Season 2

Here we are once again. For this new season of My Hero Academia, I decided to actually converse with knowledgeable anime guru and my friend, Harry, for a joint review. So, without any further ado, a 2-person discussion/review for a second season. Somewhat fitting, no? Take it away, Harry!

Harry: I mean, you’re the one who requested me, so you start.

[Anime Review] My Hero Academia Season 1

Well, isn’t this new? So recently, the weeaboos I pretend to call ‘friends’ decided that I should watch anime, and as somebody who’s literally never watched anime before, and prefers a decent videogame to a television show like Game of Thrones, Love Island or Trapped In My Uncle’s Basement, I wasn’t entirely convinced that this was a good idea. However, I’ve now watched a season of My Hero Academia, and whilst this is stylised as a review, it’s going to be more of a discussion and various observations of a first-time watcher, which is an excellent way of telling anime diehards to get off my back. Without any further ado, go beyond! Plus Ultra!! (Also, some spoilers. Be warned.)
