Cat Shit One: The Animated Series (ONA) Bad Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(FANTASY) Well, the animation is nice, and that's about it. There's really no point in watching this.
Fist of the North Star (movie) Bad Type(ACTION) Mood(HORROR) Stage(POST-APOCALYPTIC) Well, this movie oozes manly testosterone, swelling biceps, and spiritual energy. It's basically one fight after another, where badass fighters get their asses kicked by ridiculously overpowered opponents - usually resulting in severed arms, exploding heads and the like. Oh, and one fighter splits a skyscraper in half, when it falls on his head. I'm guessing the story was written by a middle schooler... ~~First viewed: 2016-11-15~~
Gintama: The Final Movie Bad Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) First of all, kudos to whoever managed to write an encyclopedia plot summary for this title. The first 20 min of this movie is litterally a waste of time and it doesn't really improve much from there on. The story has absolutely no structure and the overuse of repetitive, cheap jokes is a chore to sit through. Thing just happen randomly, as if someone had just sat down and suddenly started typing whatever thoughts decided to pop into his head at that given moment. Just to regret what he'd written a minute ago and instead decide to make a joke out of it. "I was just kidding, see? No harm done." Well, how about removing the crap you just wrote altogether? Editing? What's that? What the hell were the writers and director thinking when they made this incoherent abomination!? This movie is an absolute joke and deserves to be buried and forgotten in the deepest, darkest abyss known to mankind! *pant* *pant* ~~First viewed: 2016-01-14~~
Girls und Panzer der Film (movie) Bad Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(MODERN WORLD) The first half hour of the movie is pointless and a waste of time, as it is inconsequential to the plot and even fails to introduce the characters very well. You might as well skip it, unless you enjoy watching what appeared to be a game of GTA: Tank edition. What am I saying? The movie hardly has a plot to begin with and the characters a little more than caricatures. The only concept of this movie seems to be to display any and all impossible ways you might utilize a tank. ~~First viewed: 2016-11-15~~
Ikki Tousen: Dragon Destiny (TV) Bad Type(ACTION) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) I suppose you could label this series as a survival tournament that takes itself too seriously. There are attempts at strategy, and character development, but it's just too absurd to make any sense.
(The) Qwaser of Stigmata (TV) Bad Type(ACTION) Mood(EROTICA) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) There's simply too much focus on fanservice to really get into the story, not that there's much of a plot to begin with. They should have named it "Qwaser of Oppai" instead.
(The) Qwaser of Stigmata II (TV) Bad Type(ACTION) Mood(EROTICA) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) I watched the second season more out of duty than anything else, and it's even worse than the first one.
School Days (TV) Bad Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(MODERN WORLD) The first half of the series make up the most boring episodes in anime history, and the ending is just absurd. This goes into the trash.
Tenjho Tenge (TV) Bad Type(ACTION) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) If you liked "Ikki Tousen" you might like Tenjho Tenge too, otherwise don't bother watching this.
Tenjho Tenge: Ultimate Fight (OAV) Bad Type(ACTION) Mood(THRILLER) Stage(SUPERNATURAL)
(The) Tower of Druaga: The Aegis of Uruk (TV) Bad Type(ADVENTURE) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(FANTASY) ~~Started watching: 2014-05-25, Finished: 2015-04-26, Span: 335 days~~

Ayakashi (TV) Weak Type(ACTION) Mood(HORROR) Stage(SUPERNATURAL)
DearS (TV) Weak Type(DRAMA) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION)
Demonbane (TV) Weak Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) I'm not really a fan of mecha but, even taking that into consideration, this series isn't very good. The most interresting part of each episode was the ending, where you could read about grimoires, deities, and various monsters.
Rosario + Vampire (TV) Weak Type(ACTION) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) If you watch two, or three, episodes of this series, you have a good idea what the rest of the anime will be like. It fails to deliver in both the action, and romance, departments, and is very repetitive. Moka's vampire side is quite sexy, though, and I found myself looking forward to her appearances. ^^

Demon King Daimao (TV) Not really good Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(FANTASY)
Final Approach (TV) Not really good Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(MODERN WORLD) If you've seen "To Love-Ru", you'll recognize the plot. Due to extreme circumstances a reluctant boy is forced into a relationship with a strong-willed girl. Will he overcome his wounded pride, and learn to love her?
Hellsing Ultimate (OAV) Not really good Type(ACTION) Mood(HORROR) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) Ultimate started out much like its predecessor, but soon introduced some very depraved characters and I started to suspect where the show might be heading. I realized that the writers/directors behind this show had some serious psychological issues they might want to deal with, but I was also amused at some of the absurdities of the show and sat there chuckling to myself and shaking my head in disbelief. Anyway, I was still enjoying the series up to the fourth episode, but from episodes 5 and 6 it turns into little but an orgy of trash talk, ultra violence and gore, which is refreshing up to a point, but soon becomes predictable and a poor substitute for what could've been an interesting story. Since I'm not fifteen anymore, I wasn't very impressed with all the symbolism and glorified war that were constantly shoved down my throat. On the plus side, the soundtrack is good and Jouji Nakata is excellent as Alucard. The final episode also manages to wrap things up nicely. ~~Started watching: 2015-08-07, Finished: 2015-08-13, Span: 7 days~~
High School of the Dead (TV) Not really good Type(PSYCHOLOGICAL) Mood(HORROR) Stage(SUPERNATURAL)

Maken-Ki! Battling Venus (TV) Not really good Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(MAGIC)
Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust (movie) Not really good Type(PSYCHOLOGICAL) Mood(THRILLER) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) This movie actually starts out pretty decent, with some blackjack at a casino, but even here the plot soon becomes absurd and it's not long before sanity completely goes out the window. The story follows some organisation with high-tech sci-fi gadgets, that is after a mass murderer for some reason. Just don't expect it to make much sense and enjoy the action scenes toward the end. ~~First viewed: 2016-01-21~~

S.A (TV) Not really good Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(MODERN WORLD) This is both a parody, and a love story, and... no, that's about it. It's very repetitive, predictable, and nonsensical.
Sekirei (TV) Not really good Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(MAGIC)
This Ugly Yet Beautiful World (TV) Not really good Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION)
To Love-Ru (TV) Not really good Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) If you've seen "Final Approach", you'll recognize the plot. Due to extreme circumstances a reluctant boy is forced into a relationship with a strong-willed girl. The fact that her father is the most powerful man in the universe, and that the protagonist has feelings for another girl, makes things rather troublesome for the young man.
Aldnoah.Zero (TV) So-so Type(ACTION) Mood(THRILLER) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) This series seems to be strongly influenced by Code Geass, so if you enjoyed that series, Aldnoah.Zero likely won't disappoint you. ~~Started watching: 2014-12-18, Finished: 2014-12-21, Span: 4 days~~
Appleseed (movie) So-so Type(ACTION) Mood(THRILLER) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) I'm not a fan of outdated CG animation so it took a while before I got used to it and was able to enjoy the movie. Appleseed is kind of similar to the G.i.t.S. franchise as it deals with the philosophical and ideological dilemmas that cloning and A.I. technology give birth to. All in all it's a good story, but the script is a bit stiff, causing the dialogue to be less than dynamic. It suffers from a lack of flow and emotional commitment from the VAs. The good thing is that this movie has a lot of rewatch value and when you have the whole picture, you start reading more into what is said and recognize important hints and details in the dialogue. ~~First viewed: 2015-09-22~~

Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone (movie) So-so Type(ACTION) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) Since I haven't seen any of the episodes from the series, or the other two Evangelion movies, I don't really understand half of what was presented to me. Why can only a select few teens pilot those gundams? What's the story behind the angels?What's up with Shinji's psycho-dad? The zombie-like Rey (why is that trope so popular btw?) is only good for fan-service, and the rambling of nonsensical (to me at least) technical terms must be near record-breaking. Misato was the one character who actually provided some humor, insight, and depth to the story, and she's the only reason why I think this movie is even worth a watch. * * * Summary: Depressed, spineless, boy is put through hell by evil and manipulative father, but still wants his approval. Emotionless, brainwashed, girl is put through hell by evil and manipulative "father", but still loves him. Overly dramatical panicking and massive use of effectiveless weapons, is followed by your standard mecha vs monster battles, with boy constantly complaining about his fate throughout the movie. Closeups of manipulative father, with more evil scheming. Nonsensical Comic relief with penguin nude scene and accidental boob-grabbing is followed by more overly dramatical panicking and massive use of effectiveless weapons leading up to another mecha vs monster battle. * * * Basically, if you're older than 15 and don't have a fascination for mecha, you can sit this one out... ~~First viewed: 2015-01-18~~
(The) Familiar of Zero (TV) So-so Type(ADVENTURE) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(FANTASY) I'm not sure where they were going with this one. Was it intended to be a comedy, parody, or with romance in focus? It ended up as neither one, and with a really annoying female lead.
Fortune Arterial: Akai Yakusoku (TV) So-so Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SUPERNATURAL)
Freezing (TV) So-so Type(ACTION) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION)
(The) Future Diary (TV) So-so Type(PSYCHOLOGICAL) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) This series is a roller coaster of plot twists, and whoever wrote the story must surely be schizophrenic. It does, however, have its moments of genius, and thrills, but often dives head first into madness.
Highlander: The Search for Vengeance (movie) So-so Type(ACTION) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(POST-APOCALYPTIC) Not much to say about this movie, except that it's got decent action scenes. The premise is pretty unimaginative - "you killed my wife, so now I'll spend the next two millennia trying to kill you and avenge her". It's very predictable and has most of the one-liners and clichés you'd expect from an action piece such as this. If you do like it, though, I can recommend that you also watch Kurozuka, which is a series with many similarities to the Highlander movie. By some weird twist of fate it was released only a year after The Search for Vengeance. Go figure... ~~First viewed: 2016-01-12~~

Knights of Sidonia: Battle for Planet Nine (TV) So-so Type(ACTION) Mood(HORROR) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) This is a sequel that I really had been looking forward to watching and had high hopes for. Unfortunately the second season of the show has regressed into a stereotype mecha mold and has lost most of its nuance in favor of mediocre action scenes. The political changes seem forced and are done without subtlety. World building drags and character relationships are either nonexistent or have lost their tension. There's seldom any follow-up on the various plot twists that are introduced and whatever happens seems of little consequence to the main storyline and ends up in limbo. Considering how promising the first season was, the second season is a major disappointment and I don't recommend it. ~~Started watching: 2015-06-08, Finished: 2015-08-06, Span: 60 days~~
Kuttsukiboshi (OAV) So-so Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) Too bad that they had to go and ruin a perfectly good yuri love story, and turn it into a hentai (more or less) by adding sex scenes to the point where it's cram-full...
Lamune (TV) So-so Type(SLICE OF LIFE) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(MODERN WORLD) Lamune is like a light version of "Shuffle", so if you enjoyed that series you might like this one too. I expected more from it, after having watched the first couple of episodes, which showed good chemistry between the main characters, but it never really took off.

RIN - Daughters of Mnemosyne (TV) So-so Type(PSYCHOLOGICAL) Mood(HORROR) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) Be warned that this series is filled with explicit sex and violence, including torture scenes. If you still want to give it a try, then Mnemosyne actually does have a decent plot, in all its absurdity.
Sakura Trick (TV) So-so Type(SLICE OF LIFE) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(MODERN WORLD) This is basically an "innocent" yuri comedy, and it's cute and all, but that's about it.
She, The Ultimate Weapon (TV) So-so Type(DRAMA) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION)
Shiki (TV) So-so Type(PSYCHOLOGICAL) Mood(HORROR) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) I like how the music is used to set the mood in this series, and most of the time I approve of the no-nonsense brutality shown by the characters. You also get a good grasp of the inner workings of each character, and the reflective reasoning behind their actions. The plot, however, soon gets repetitive, and there really isn't enough material to cover all of the 22 episodes. The conclusion wasn't very satisfying either, and just left me with an empty feeling of disappointment. ~~Started watching: 2015-03-21, Finished: 2015-03-30, Span: 10 days~~
Shuffle! (TV) So-so Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) The series certainly had some dramatic highlights, and also dealt with serious issues, but most of the time it resorted to typical harem behaviour, where the overly cutesy girls want to hold hands, and prepare lunch boxes for the main protagonist. In short, feminism just died. ^^

Wake Up, Girls! (TV) So-so Type(SLICE OF LIFE) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(MODERN WORLD) Light drama about an all-girl idol group's struggle for recognition. Not all members are sure about what they really want, though, so the group's very existence is soon in danger. The series is ok, but nothing special.

Air (TV) Decent Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) Air shares many similarities with "Clannad", but the story isn't nearly as good. It has a good mix of comedy, and tragedy, and it's worth watching. ~~Started watching: 2013-10-04, Finished: 2013-10-05, Span: 2 days~~

Baby Steps (TV) Decent Type(SLICE OF LIFE) Mood(COMPETITION) Stage(MODERN WORLD) It's a decent feel-good tennis series, with rather generic characters and subpar animation. There are some interesting "facts" on training, both mental and physical, and it probably works better as a beginners guide to tennis, than as a regular anime series.
Banner of the Stars (TV) Decent Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) I never learned to like that awful "alien" languange, spoken by the storyteller, in the sub. Maybe the eng.dub was better? I also never felt much love for the characters, or the plot for that matter. I'm not sure why I even watched the second season...

Fairy Tail (TV) Decent Type(ACTION) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(FANTASY) There's something about this series that makes the whole appear greater than the sum of its parts. There isn't much of a plot, violence is the only solution to problems, and most characters are paper thin, and yet I find myself watching the new episodes as they are released. To sum it up, even though I've seen all the episodes, you still haven't missed anything special. ^^

Ga-Rei-Zero (TV) Decent Type(PSYCHOLOGICAL) Mood(HORROR) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) This is a dark, psychological and tragic horror story about friendship and betrayal, with supernatural swordfighting on top. Two girls, who used to be best friends, are now mortal enemies. The story takes us back in time to reveal what happened to cause this dramatic change. There are plently of tragic moments in this series, but also a few hillarious ones. ~~Started watching: 2014-05-26, Finished: 2014-05-31, Span: 6 days~~
Gunslinger Girl (TV) Decent Type(DRAMA) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) The story is too depressing for my taste, and the characters didn't appeal to me either, I felt sympathy for them of course, but didn't really get much out of watching it. The plot has a certain quality, though, and raises questions about the human psyche, so it wasn't a complete waste of my time. If you're interrested in firearms, you might even enjoy the series.

Hunter × Hunter -The Last Mission- (movie) Decent Type(ACTION) Mood(THRILLER) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) This movie has nothing that you wouldn't find in the average shonen action movie.

Accel World (TV) Good Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) I would've liked to have rated this series higher, but I feel as if they've used every trick in the book to manipulate me as a viewer, and that's a turn-off. I also don't care much for the voice acting, and the battles were a bit crude for my taste. Basically, Accel World focuses more on strategy than e.g. "Sword Art Online", but it feels as if it also lost the love for the artificial world in the process. ~~Started watching: 2014-03-21, Finished: 2014-03-22, Span: 2 days~~

CANAAN (TV) Good Type(ACTION) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(MODERN WORLD) Canaan shares many traits with other great action series, such as Darker than Black, and Black Lagoon, as it deals with dark themes, and the human psyche.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (TV) Good Type(ACTION) Mood(THRILLER) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) The pace of the plot is sometimes insane, and one episode can feel like a 20min summary of 5 episodes, but played in a non sequencial order; making it very confusing to follow. The tone is darker than in season one, with little room for hope, and the comic relief is brought down to a minimum. The rushed plot feels haphazard and unnatural, and some of the most interresting characters from season one are missing. The focus has moved from a psychological viewpoint, toward blunt technological warfare, with advanced mecha in focus. This all makes the second season a disappointment, compared to the first, but it's still worth seeing. ~~Started watching: 2014-11-17, Finished: 2014-11-19, Span: 3 days~~

Kanon also has a supernatural theme, and a good mix of comedy and tragedy, but over all it's not as good as Clannad. ~~Started watching: 2013-10-03, Finished: 2013-10-04, Span: 2 days~~

A Lull in the Sea (TV) Good Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(FANTASY) Unlike Mushi-shi, the characters of Nagi no Asukara aren't interresting enough to fill the void of the slow paced plot. Rather than build suspense, it becomes boring during the second half of the series. Usually when circumstances bring characters to tears, I tear up as well, but in this instance that didn't happen. It's simply not thrilling enough, funny enough, or tragic enough, to make an impact. ~~Started watching: 2014-05-29, Finished: 2014-10-14, Span: 139 days~~

Steins;Gate: The Movie - Load Region of Déjà Vu Good Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) Okabe steps down from the helm, as Makise takes the role of the heroine in this movie, which is kinda refreshing. "Okarin" is suffering from the side effects of time traveling, and is resigned to living in a future where his friends have forgotten him, but Makise is determined to change that future. The movie does have its moments, and is surprisingly good for a movie sequel. It's more focused on the romance between Okabe and Makise, than the original series, but it doesn't quite reach the latter's heights. ~~First viewed: 2015-06-05~~

Toradora! (TV) Good Type(DRAMA) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(MODERN WORLD) It's refreshing to see a romantic comedy that doesn't stick to clichés, and stereotypes. Though the main protagonist has several potential love interests, this isn't a typical harem plot, and the characters are comparatively more complex. Toradora has good character development, which means that the story gets better with each episode, so whatever you do, make sure you finish the entire series. Stopping midway would be like watching the first season of Clannad, but not watch the After Story. ~~Started watching: 2013-10-06, Finished: 2014-10-16, Span: 376 days~~

Whisper of the Heart (movie) Good Type(SLICE OF LIFE) Mood(ROMANCE) Stage(MODERN WORLD) There's not enough material to justify this movie being two hours long.

It is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity is on the brink of extinction and has taken refuge behind enormous stone walls that protect them against the maneating Titans. ~~Started watching: 2013-07-30, Finished: 2013-09-29, Span: 62 days~~

Bleach (TV) Very good (dub & sub) Type(ACTION) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(SUPERNATURAL) I based the rating on the story arcs that follow the manga, and also included the Bount arc, as well as the freestanding Arrancar episodes. Together they account for 3/4 of the anime. The remaining 1/4, consisting of other non-canon arcs and free-standing episodes, includes eps.168-189, eps.204-214, eps.230-265, and eps.317-341. I give these episodes a "Decent" rating. ~~Started watching: 2012-05-25, Finished: 2012-07-10, Span: 47 days~~

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (TV) Very good Type(PSYCHOLOGICAL) Mood(THRILLER) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) The most interresting thing about this series are actually the support characters, surrounding the arrogant and overly theatrical Lelouch, and how they are affected by his reckless actions. The story develops at a quick pace, and Lelouch is forced to use his "gift" in very creative ways to outsmart his enemies, and with mixed results. The story moves between suspense, tragedy, and comic relief, and between strategic thinking and intense action sequences. ~~Started watching: 2014-11-15, Finished: 2014-11-17, Span: 3 days~~
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Very good Type(ACTION) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) After having seen Cowboy Bebop I have to say that I'm slightly disappointed. I realize that people have different tastes, but this series is so hyped that I thought it surely had to be something special. Many episodes aren't that interesting, silly even, and the quality varies a lot between episodes throughout the series. The characters are the show's greatest weakness and the only one I actually like somewhat is Faye, the others just don't cut it. The soundtrack is very good, though, and the characters usually drop at least a few clever lines in each episode. The problem is that Cowboy Bebop tries to be a little of everything, but as a result ends up not having any real strenghts. I tries to be both silly and witty, philosophical and thoughtful, as well as cool and badass. Imo it tries to incorporate, and uses clichés from, too many genres (action, adventure, comedy, drama, mystery, romance, and sci-fi), but doesn't shine in any one of them. I'm not saying that Cowboy Bebop is a bad show, I still rate it as very good (if barely), but it certainly isn't as good as I expected it to be. ~~Started watching: 2015-07-01, Finished: 2015-07-04, Span: 4 days~~

Kino's Journey (TV) Very good Type(PSYCHOLOGICAL) Mood(TRAGEDY) Stage(FANTASY) This episodic adventure series does a great job of portraying the dark side of the human psyche. The young traveler Kino, along with the talking motorcycle Hermes, journey to different lands, and never stay more than three days in each land. The story revolves around examining the many cruel acts which people are capable of committing, under the right cicumstances, in order to protect themselves, their way of living, and their status. We also get to see the fear, grief, and despair of the victims to these crimes. It becomes quite depressing to watch, after a while, and I wished the story could've covered a wider range of positive emotions, such as hope, love, and feeling of accomplishment, to compensate for the overwhelming darkness. There's also very little character development with both Kino, and Hermes, having adopted unnaturally cold and analytical personalities. ~~Started watching: 2015-04-09, Finished: 2015-04-11, Span: 3 days~~

Patema Inverted has a fundamentally serious theme, but also some really funny moments, and two great protagonists. The distorted physics also allows for some wondrous scenes and thrilling moments. ~~First viewed: 2015-12-29~~

Summer Wars (movie) Very good Type(DRAMA) Mood(COMEDY) Stage(SCIENCE FICTION) This movie definitely has production value, and is a pleasure to watch. The japanese voice actors manage to portray the characters in a realistic way, and it's fascinating to follow the first Slice of Life-half of the movie. I wanted to learn more about this japanese family (or rather clan of families), and about the various social codes between main- and branch families. What upsets me is that the story then changes direction, and becomes something of a Sci-fi Thriller instead, which I feel is an attempt to make the title more mainstream. The producers should've stuck with what they do best, though, which in this case is the Slice of Life part of the movie. The Sci-fi part seems like a drunk guest, who's crashing a otherwise great party, and I feel that the movie lost its direction only to get lost midway through. Since the first half is excellent, and the second half merely good, I suppose the overall rating falls under the very good category. It's a shame, since I really believe it deserved better. ~~First viewed: 2014-09-24~~
