12 August 2014- 1 July 2015
Angel Beats! (TV) Excellent
25 April 2012- 28 April 2012
Another (TV) Excellent
16 January 2012- 2 April 2012
+: Ambiance, backgrounds, great death scenes (two deaths in particular where magnificently executed), great sense of mystery, surprises thoroughly shocked me (as a desensitized horror fan, that's hard to do)
-: Incredibly slow start, little connection with characters, overblown ending caused me to become apathetic

12 April 2014
Beyond the Boundary (TV) Decent
19 October 2013- 25 December 2013
+: Beautiful animation (especially the fight scenes), interesting world
-: Cop-out (or at least unexplained) ending, filler when there are questions left unanswered
Black Butler (TV) Excellent
Started about 16 January 2011
Black Butler II (TV) So-so
Blast of Tempest (TV) Very good
13 October 2012- 4 April 2013; between Good and Very Good
+: Stylish and unique magical fights, interesting plot, great music/soundtrack, interesting characters

7 July 2013- 30 September 2013
Blue Exorcist (TV) Good
Finished 8 October 2011
CANAAN (TV) Decent
Started 2 June 2012, finished about 2 weeks later.
Castle in the Sky (movie) Good
Before September 2011
Chaika - The Coffin Princess (TV) Good
30 April 2014- 3 July 2014
(Le) Chevalier D'Eon (TV) Decent
23 December 2012- 26 August 2013
I love the concept and how parts of it were executed, but the ending felt rushed and left much to be desired.
Chōyaku Hyakunin Isshu: Uta Koi (TV) Good
9 July 2012 - 1 October 2012
+: Unconventional and visually pleasing animation style, ends with a very appropriate episode, very moody or melancholy
-: Out of place ending theme, impossible to keep names straight, useless filler episode (episode 6), very loose with the history
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (TV) Excellent
18 August 2012- 31 August 2012
+: Interesting world building, dimensional and generally likable (or at least entertaining) characters, dynamic anti-hero (what can I say, I like anti-heroes ;D), not afraid to make the MC lose, incredible fun/entertaining plot twists, great gender equality, music
-: Many small to medium leaps of logic, overly dramatic sometimes
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (TV) Excellent
11 September 2012- 23 September 2012
Generally what applied to the first season also applies here, so see above for most of my thoughts.
+: Transitions from season 1 fairly well (when marathoning anyway), answers enough questions in the beginning and doesn't leave us hanging all season
-: Heavy plot armor for many characters, replicates season one (especially early on) to the point where some scenes seemed interchangeable,
Random note: The best way to describe it would be organic. Code Geass and its character were constantly moving, growing, changing and changing sides.
Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Future Arc (TV)
Spring-ish 2023
Danganronpa The Animation (TV) Not really good
17 July 2013- 29 September 2013
+: Some cool and creative executions
-: Didn't care about any of the character, wasn't given enough info to solve the mysteries ourselves, too many unanswered questions
Dead Leaves (OAV) Weak
4 October 2013
Dead Mount Death Play (TV) Very good
Summer-ish 2023 - 14 January 2024
Deadman Wonderland (TV) Decent
26 May 2012- 12 August 2012
+: great over the top gore (that eye scene... *shudder*), interesting world setup and characters, opening (music and animation)
-: horrifically awful ending, wasted great potential

Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club (TV) Very good
10 July 2013- 2 October 2013
From the New World (TV) Very good
9 October 2012-5 April 2013
+: Intriguing blend of the modern, ancient, and made up to make a unique culture, GREAT infodump, intelligent and interesting ideas
-: Takes away to explain anything, clunky transition between episodes, characters aren't as strong, very inconsistent
When everything comes together, it's MAGNIFICENT. But it doesn't always come together.

14 April 2013- 22 June 2013
Gatchaman Crowds (TV) Excellent
19 June 2013- 5 October 2013
+: Fun characters and animation, cool designs/style, variety of characters, unique message/theme
-: The ending was too vague and left a few important questions unanswered, I would have liked to see Hajime's character/sunny personality challenged with something like a death or a serious injury
Note: I really loved everything about Gatchaman Crowds except for the unanswered question.
Gatchaman Crowds insight (TV) Excellent
1 January 2016- 14 January 2016

25 January 2013- 1 July 2013
Hetalia World Series (TV) So-so
Howl's Moving Castle (movie) Very good
22 October 2012
+: Delightfully charming characters, high profile dub cast, beautiful backgrounds, fantastical,
-: Leaves things unexplained (like how Sophie was cured of the curse or what exactly Howl's affliction is), bumpy pacing, characters personalities do 180's (especially that witch)
Humanity Has Declined (TV) Very good
8 July 2012- 23 September 2012
+: So unique, absurd and quirky, liked the cynical MC, those fairies were very creepy, it's comedy really hit
-: Never find out what happens with her hair
Is This a Zombie? (TV) Decent
6 April 2012- 12 April 2012

20 April 2012- 29 June 2012
Jormungand Perfect Order (TV) Decent
12 October 2012- 27 December 2012
+: Good action, music
-: The ending/master plan makes no sense, not much substance and when it tries it doesn't do substance well
Karneval (TV) Decent
9 April 2013- 2 July 2013
It's not good, but it's enjoyable.
Kids on the Slope (TV) Good
19 April 2012- 6 July 2012

(The) Mystic Archives of Dantalian (TV) Decent
18 June 2013- 21 October 2013
Night is Short, Walk On Girl (movie) Decent
24 January 2021
+ The surrealism was fun, the first story about her befriending people while drinking was the best and most fun in the movie
- The love interest was boring and annoying and the MC deserved a story independent of him, the way it handles the crossdressing character is gross and annoying, and the story gives WAY too much sympathy to the guy who is a creep towards the MC
No Game, No Life (TV) Good
3 May 2014- 13 July 2014
Noragami (TV) Very good
7 January 2014- 2 April 2014

-: Gets kinda stale after awhile
Princess Mononoke (movie) Good
Before September 2011
Promare (movie) Very good
12 January 2021
+ utterly delightfully stupidly fun, beautiful animation, hell yeah dragons
- there were a few places where the stupid got a little too stupid and broke my suspension of disbelief
Psycho-Pass (TV) Very good
11 October 2012-22 March 2013
+: It doesn't stay episodic long, effective dark atmosphere/situations

Psycho-Pass 2 (TV) Decent
14 November 2014- 12 September 2015
Puella Magi Madoka Magica (TV) Very good
15 February 2012- 2 May 2012

Robotics;Notes (TV) Very good
20; Funi; Friday; 12 October 2012-22 March 2013
+: Very relatable (I'm in a robotics club irl), remarkable true to life for a mecha/sci fi anime, entertaining and likable characters,
-: Male lead is apathetic, rushes the ending, glosses over events

Sankarea: Undying Love (TV) Good

Spirited Away (movie) Decent
10 November 2012, 16 December 2012 (Was 25 minutes in when the DVD decided to stop working. Crappy library DVDs... >.>)
+: Interesting world
-: Very anticlimactic ending, doesn't explore the world any deeper than the surface or the theme's it briefly touches on
(La) storia della Arcana Famiglia (TV) Bad
8 July 2012 - 29 September 2012
+: Voice actors (watched subbed), interesting premise, hot guys in suits/female directed fanservice (if you consider fanservice a positive aspect)
-: Filler before the actual plot (takes 12 episodes to get to the dual), horrible pacing, personality-less lead, one note characters who can't even come to simple conclusions, predictable, facepalm inducing script,
Note: Basically the only reason to watch this is the hot guys in suits. It's not offensively bad, but it does nothing well. It's not even so bad it's good; it's just bad.
Summer Wars (movie) Excellent
About 4 August 2012
Sunday Without God (TV) Good
31 June 2013- 5 October 2013

Will not finish Rating Comment
5 Centimeters Per Second (movie) 23 min. Maybe it's a good movie, but I couldn't tell because I was BORED OUT OF MY MIND. It's on the exact opposite side of the entertainment spectrum as what I usually enjoy.
Accel World (TV) Not really good 3 episodes; The characters annoyed me, especially the MC's excessive self pity even after he becomes special.
Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman (TV) 4 episodes; A comedy that doesn't make me laugh doesn't do me much good.
Code:Breaker (TV) 4 episodes; It's a fairly typical shonen with an annoyingly over idealistic lead. I'm mainly dropping it because of a lack of time, but it doesn't give me much of a reason to find time for it.
Diabolik Lovers (TV) 4 episodes; It's so disgusting. There's nothing redeemable about it.
Natsuyuki Rendezvous (TV) 5 episodes; It started off okay, but became a chore to watch, mainly because I didn't care about the characters.
Pupa (TV) 6 episodes; 17 January 2014- 21 March 2014
Sword Art Online (TV) Not really good 14 episodes; 14 July 2012-19 October 2012
+: Great background art, cool boss battles, interesting setup
-: Uninteresting characters, bumpy pacing, lame plot
