One Punch Man
As the story continues, the main character discovered a lot about college life and all the emotions that comes with it which of course involve falling in love – both pain and happiness. The best thing about this anime is that it reflects life situation in all corners, not just around the school premises which makes the experience of the characters more realistic.
This anime is one of the most loved anime ever made so its no surprise that it is very popular and from its first release around year 2000, it is now re-animated in 2019 where currently the series is still on-going.
This charming guy who also is a prince easily got the trust of Shirkayuki so she went with Zen in his castle. In this kingdom she continued her pursuit in becoming a great palace pharmacist. The question now is how will the relationship of Zen and Shirayuki develop considering that our main character attracts a lot of attention not only because of her red hair but also because of her kindness. Eventually, other characters get to fall in love with her.
This anime will definitely make you cry due to the emotions that each character shows. Soon you will realize that the death of his mother is not the only reason why he stopped playing the piano. Though most of the time, it’s serious drama, there is still some slice of comedy in this anime which gives off a lighter feeling. The anime shows how one true love could change a persons life.
As they continue to be together Tomoya slowly realized their life is interesting and it has a lot to offer. In short, he slowly found meaning into his life the moment he met Nagisa. It’s definitely a love story that one should not miss. You could easily relate to it and not to mention it also have a lot of funny scenes.
The show does not show how silly you become when you have crushes especially when its your first time having this kind of feeling. But it portrays that eventually, you will learn from all your love experience and you grow with it. You will just be looking back in time and smile at how silly you have been before. And before I forget, expect to get tons of laugh with this anime.
This anime really packs a lot of emotion and is considered as one of those shows that would certainly make you cry. The love story here is more of the love for a friend type of relationship.
It all started when Kagome who is from the modern day was sent to the world of Inuyasha in the feudal era of Japan. She was able to free Inuyasha from the magic that binds him in a tree and from then on their journey together begins.
This is a love story about giving your life to protect the one you love and helping her to reach her ultimate goal in life. Aside from the love story, this anime is also full of action.
And of course this leads to her also finding the love of her life. Aside from the story, what’s most interesting about this anime is the overall art style. It’s generally very pleasing and just nice to watch especially considering that this anime is not just about normal life, but a life with magic.
As expected of this action-packed anime, it immediately kicked off strong with great fight scenes featuring the past of All Might together with his buddy Dave. I think starting the movie strong and interesting was great which immediately got me hooked. From here, I somehow expected that the move would be a good one.
So right of the bat, I would give my hero academia movie 2018 an 8/10 rating – highly recommended. Its a great movie for those who are a fan of this anime series and even for those who have not watched the series yet. So if you haven’t watched the movie yet, I highly suggest you, but first please watch the movie trailer below before you do so.
After the wonderful start, the focus came to the story where our main characters – Deku and All Might were invited to a certain island for scientists. Somehow Deku surprisingly met his friends there from the U.A. High School University. This is where the action slowly started to heat up again and the overall vibe changed. It’s just great to see Deku with his friends enjoying their moment on the Island.
The action fights were really great. For me, the animators of this movie did a great job when it comes to the fights scenes. The details on the characters are still good amidst the cool fights of our heroes and the villains.
One thing that distracted me though is that the Island setting and aura reminded me of a place in pokemon. I think the animators would have thought of a much better look of the island which suits the anime. I personally do not know what it is, but something that dives away from being pokemon like environment. Aside from this, everything deserves a thumbs up.
Of course, aside from the action, the movie also did a great job of touching our emotions. We could easily relate to Deku and All Might as well as to the desire of Melissa to follow the footsteps of his father who is a well-known scientist. I mean we all have that certain desire in our hearts to follow those whom we look-up too which most often than not are our parents or close friends. We give our all and strive in whatever we do so we could be a better version of ourselves and one that could be compared to our idols.
Though the movie was already good enough, I mean its already a great movie and a must-watch, but it could have been better if more time was given to the past story of All Might. It would have also been kick-ass to see the younger version of other Pro Heroes. It could also be possible that they intentionally did this since this past story of All Might could be one solid movie. What do you think?
Another thing that could have been improved was the use of those small security machine robots. For me, they were just used too much. It would have been better if there were other characters actual villain fighters that our young heroes were able to face climbing up the tower.
I guess that would be all. Again, I highly recommend this movie even to those who have not watched the anime series yet. You’ll be amazed by the fight scenes and will be touched by the emotion of the characters. It will definitely give you the satisfaction of seeing Deku and his friends do their best to save the day. Plus, the fight scene on the ending part of the movie could be considered as one of the best. Personally, I enjoyed the whole movie.
Bungo Stray Dogs anime features a small detective agency called Armed Detective Agency where members have supernatural powers, but not the kind of power you expect from Dragaon Ball Z or One Piece, but definitely enough to make the series entertaining and action-packed. The main character is Atsushi who is an orphan and somehow ends up being a member of the detective agency. He will soon discover something unique about him which will change the course of his life.
“Bungou Stray Dogs” Season 3 – New PV!!
The anime is slated to premiere on April 12
When it comes to the mood of this anime, it more feels like a roller coaster. You will find yourself in a dramatic scene, then it shifts to being serious and lethal. And of course, it also has its comedy scenes in almost all episodes. If you are the kind of person who easily relates to the characters, you would certainly feel the sadness of Atsushi since from the beginning he has no one. Then slowly he started to meet happiness through the people he meets who showed him love and made him feel a sense of belongingness.
The best thing about this anime is it was able to maintain the balance of putting various mood in the entire series leaving anime lovers wanting for more and excited for the next episodes.
I could certainly say that the story of Bungo Stray Dogs is well-written. It’s good that as early as episode 1 you will already know something the main character’s experience in the past and meeting characters that would kick off the whole story of this anime.
Even though the story is somehow really serious, there are still a lot of humorous scenes in this anime series making it entertaining yet fun to watch. For season 1, you will most likely find yourself with a good laugh with every episode due to the funny side of this anime. However, in season 2, things get a little bit serious since we are not introduced to the other side of the story. Which is actually good since it gives viewers a different taste making it less boring.
And since there are gifted people with supernatural powers, expect there would be a lot of scenes where the protagonists aim to save peoples lives and in constant pursuit for justice. And throughout the whole story, you will slowly know more about the characters as there will be checking of a character’s past so will get to know more each character and understand them better. This also means that every character was given enough screen time.
The main characters in BSD are Atsushi, Dazai, and Kunakita. These 3 are all gifted with supernatural powers and are doing their best to uphold justice and protect the people they love and the citizens in their place in general.
Even though Atsushi is the main character, most definitely many would become more interested in Dazai mainly because of his enigmatic yet fun behavior. You will surely enjoy watching Dazai during fan times and would get more interested in his character when he gets serious. I would say that he has a bipolar personality.
Regarding Atsushi, you might find his character somewhat annoying since he seems to be like holding on to his past too much. To the extent that he becomes a burden to those around him. However, as soon as he realizes his worth and that he could change his path, you will slowly appreciate his effort on getting back on his feet and trying to change his perspective in life.
The other characters who are part of the Armed Detective Agency are Kunida, Kenji, Ranpo, Tanizaki and Akiko. You will know more about these guys as you continue watching the anime.
Aside from these interesting main characters, there is also enough air time for the protagonist in BSD like Kyouka Izumi and Ryunesse Akutagawa.
Generally, when it comes to animation and art, BSD is a decent-looking anime. For me, there is a high level of art displayed by its creators. Though it’s not as consistent as we wanted it to be. For the character designs, you will surely see that they have given enough effort to create these wonderful characters down to the design of their eyes which somehow makes the intense and emotional moments more effective.
A unique style that you will surely notice on the anime is the part where there are texts added on the scene explaining the character’s name and ability.
And when it comes to the action part, it’s well-animated and entertaining enough for me. You might find the first half of the series to lack entertaining action scenes, but surely things would start to pick up at the 2nd half of the anime where you will see better effects and more vibrant colors.
One thing I could say about Bungo Stray Dogs is it’s great fun and entertaining – it will not get you bored. The characters are likable enough which will make you strict to watching it for a while until you end up watching the whole season. Aside from being funny, for me, it more of a touching anime with deep emotions especially by the main character. You will surely be touched by the story and struggles of the characters in this anime, both the protagonist and antagonist.
So, do I recommend watching it? Yes, of course. Though it’s not a masterpiece anime, it still is a decent one and is certainly worth your time. Plus, its third season is out this year so you really have to start watching it now.
Below is Season 1 official trailer.
One-Punch Man is a webcomic Japanese character that was created in 2009 and instantly became one of the most popular. It had been directed in a way of creating a comedy by a superhero. The superhero role is named as Saitama who could win the battle by fighting with any villain with just one punch (cool right?). He is able to do this because he is insanely strong, fast and full of energy. Surprisingly, his face is in expressionless most of the time.
If you are looking for one reason to watch this anime, it is unanimously known as the best anime of 2015 and many are claiming it to be one of the best anime ever created. So there is only one way to confirm it, watch it yourself.

If you’re an anime lover, you will definitely love One-Punch Man. During the initial release of One Punch Man many got hooked. A lot of anime fans have been waiting for each and every episode.
The story revolves around Saitama who wanted to play the role of a hero. For 3 years he had undergone serious training which is one of the reasons why he became bald. And as he claims the reason for his strength. When strong villains appear, they are not aware of Saitama’s out of this world strength and power.
Even though Saitama easily defeats strong enemies, a lot of people thought that he cheats and only delivers the last blow. No one gives him due credit. Good thing someone advised him to register to the Hero Association for him to become a certified hero.
The anime One-Punch Man is well known for comedy, characters, outrageous plot, and ridiculous schoolboy dialogue. Here, I mentioned you some names of villains so that you can easily know what type of comic film it is that included Crablante, Ground Dragon, Armored Gorilla, Subterranean, Vaccine Man, Piggy Bank, and Mosquito Girl.
Aside from these interesting villains, you will also get interested in the various superheroes in this series who are members of the HERO Association. One of these will eventually become the partner of our main character in the name of Janus. He personally saw how strong Saitama is which led to his desire to become Saitama’s disciple. Janus just wanted to become strong like Saitama to get his revenge.
The series of One Punch Man is showing you a good anime scenes and the surface of events happened in the series allows getting to know the truth rarely. If you want to view it in a high-quality picture, you need to go to Blu-Ray option and enjoy the series of anime section of One Punch Man. The series was produced by the leading anime studio provider Madhouse and the series is showing you some of the best studio’s work. They are the reason of the intense action in this anime series that have gotten the attention of millions of fans.
Its just great to see the transition of the animation from Saitama being pathetic to becoming intense and back to being pathetic again. You’ll understand when you watch the anime yourself.
Saitama superhero character in One Punch Man really attracts every audience from kids, teens, young ones and the not so young generation. In this anime series, a lot of effort has been put and surely does the show justice. It is a classic anime series and really waiting to watch next season to be released this year. One-Punch Man is now available in Blu-ray and DVD that you can purchase on best retailers like Amazon.
Overall, we just love everything from this anime series which is the reason why we are giving it a rating of 9/10.
All throughout the series, there are an incredible set of battles in which various superhero or Saitama have to face insane characters. Though we all know what would be the ending, the action scenes are still pretty cool that would make you want for more. Each episode of this 12-episode anime is worth watching, no time-waster. There is a back-story line that gives the excitement to see the next episode. That means it hooks up the audience on everything ending and leaves them on the edge looking for more and what would happen next.
The Sword Art Online anime series started the MMORPG trend. It took the world by storm and easily gathered millions of avid fans across the globe. The biggest TV station in our country even featured SAO during its heyday telling how anime fans of all ages are getting hooked to Kirito and Asuna’s love story. Fast forward a couple of years after the first season, SAO seems to be losing its edge. Many dropped it saying that the story failed to emphasize what viewers want, which is more time with the couple together as well as more RPG-inspired fights. What SAO has been continuously doing is introduce new female leads and forcing them into Kirito’s harem. This approach has been proven to be unpopular among SAO fans. And the continuous decline of SAO’s popularity through the years is a clear indication that viewers are not happy of how the whole story is going from one season to another. Nevertheless, the third season, Sword Art Online Alicization, is quite promising. For the first time, Kirito is not adventuring in a new virtual world with another girl but a young boy who aims to save his childhood friend. Does this indicate that the people behind SAO is listening to its loyal patrons? Doe Sword Art Online Alicization live up to the hype?
They completely overhauled the SAO animation. This is expected since they hired a new animation studio to do the work. Many are not happy about this but it’s not really a big deal for me. Yes, it turned out a little bit childish because of the colors and drawing style but it’s not that bad.
I’m not a fan of Kirito’s voice especially when he screamed as the goblin leader cornered him. It almost sounded like a girl being harassed and pleading for help. I prefer male heroes to have a deeper voice. I know they are complimenting Kirito’ voice with his thin and small physique but I’m sure he’ll turn out to be more lovable and manly with a deeper one.
Eugeo and Alice Schuberg are just two of the many new characters introduced in the third season of Sword Art Online. Sadly, they’re not as unique an interesting as we expect them to be. Eugeo resembles the old Kirito. He belittles himself after failing to save Alice from being apprehended by an Integrity Knight. And Alice is like the new Asuna. She was punished for defying a taboo and had her memory replaced with fake ones. This story and character development are basically re-imagined versions of what we saw in the second season of SAO where Kirito saves Asuna from being kidnapped. The added new game-like skills, rules, and the mysteries behind the antagonists that are ruling the fantasy world made the story quite interesting at first but once they are all revealed, you’ll realize that you’re served with food made while following the same old recipe.
I have no problem about the pace of Sword Art Online Alicization. It’s not so fast to the point of skipping fine details about the story and not slow enough to bore viewers. But why is its score just 3? The main reason behind this is the fact that I am 13 episodes in yet the main antagonist is still yet to be established. At first, I thought it was the people behind the project that uses a virtual world to develop new souls but they were simply doing it to improve the government’s military force and save real lives in the near future. Kirito might not like their way of thinking but their acts are not despicable enough to be considered villains. The church in the fantasy world where Kirito is trapped is a good candidate for being the main antagonist but the leader who is pulling all the strings is yet to be introduced. When will they reveal it? I know it is part of making the show thrilling but keeping it a secret halfway through the story is overdoing it.
Is it the saving grace of the SAO anime series? Sword Art Online Alicization is very promising but not good enough to fully lift the franchise to its former glory. Or maybe I’m concluding to early? We’ll see. I’m rooting for SAO Alicization’s success though. I want it to have a clear conclusion like the first season while leaving a few loose ends to hint a continuation. And because of this glimmer of hope, I’m giving it a borderline yay! I won’t put an effort in introducing this anime to my friends but I won’t have any qualm in recommending and giving it a decent remark if they ask.
There you have it guys! When everything is all said and done, the SAO anime franchise is still one of the most successful to date. Although its second season failed to reach everyone’s expectations, we should not put all the blame to the creators. Maybe our standards skyrocketed after enjoying the first season so much to the extent that everything new and different introduced in the second season all ended up being compared to the first and were all hated as a result. Before you watch Sword Art Online III, I suggest to open your mind. Forget about your first season experience and treat it as a new anime as a whole with familiar characters you’ve learned to love following a different story line. By doing so, you’ll diverge from the path of comparing every bit of detail in the new anime series with its predecessors and enjoy it more. Give it a try and don’t just dump it after a one or two episodes like I did at first. You’ll surely see that it delivers a new taste and is worth your time! As always, give us a LIKE and continue to SHARE the anime love mina!
Are you frustrated about Sword Art Online III? Do you love RPG anime but the new ones you’ve watched did not go well with your taste? Then look nowhere else because That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime is likely to be the perfect match for you.
How can I confidently say such a statement? I’ve read almost every RPG manga even the least popular ones and watched their respective anime adaptations. Among all of them, That Time I go Reincarnated as a Slime, stands out as the most complete. It’s an anime series that you’ll enjoy from the get-go. First of all, it’s not hard to root for the main protagonist who got reincarnated as the weakest monster in almost every RPG, a slime. I know he is not an ordinary one but his small and adorable appearance makes it impossible to hate him. He also has an easy-going personality. Second, this anime has a few boring moments. Interesting events keep coming like a landslide to keep us entertained. Humor is also sprinkled every now and then which serve as great breaks before serious and important plot elements are introduced. You might have noticed that I’ve already on board to this anime’s hype train and honestly I am. Read further if you want to know how That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime captured my heart and other thousands of anime fans despite embracing an overused storyline.
I love it. Every new RPG anime seems to get better visually nowadays. As long as it’s not as bad as what they did to Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody, I’m happy. The animation sequence that I like the most is when Rimuru, the main protagonist, consults with Great Sage. The Great Sage talks like an AI in a Sci-Fi movie which is really cool and the animation that comes with it completes the futuristic atmosphere. It even makes me think that he might be reincarnated inside a game and not in the real world. The fight scenes animation is also impressive. It’s not as detailed as good as Seven Deadly Sins but it is still very entertaining. I would love to give it a perfect score but I’m reserving that for an anime who can blend both 2d and 3d animation and so far only Overlord attempted it with a passing grade.
I’m not really a fan of Rimuru’s voice as a slime. He was an adult in his past life with a much deeper voice so why did he lose that? I can understand sounding like a child as he mimics Shizue but as a slime I think it would have been better if he retained his voice during his past life because he can’t speak and it’s just for us to know what’s in his mind as the story progress. Well, this is just my opinion and you might think otherwise. Share your thoughts in the comments section below. The voices of the supporting characters are good enough except for Ranga. It echoes like he is a spirit or something. I know it is to suggest that he speaks through telepathy but it would have been better if it’s done with a livelier and energetic voice to match a wolf’s personality.
I love every character this anime series introduces from one episode to another. They are unique compared to other RPG anime. Yes, the orcs are still pigs but they have samurai-inspired ogres. The ogre’s appearances are far from their ugly and fat RPG counterparts. Based on how the story is currently going, their group will be Rimuru’s most powerful and loyal subordinates. The dragon Veldora also has a lovable personality. He is prideful like other overpowered characters but he is secretly lonely and has a childish personality. I find it very funny when he tried to stop Rimuru from leaving during their first meeting because he was lonely an wants a friend to talk to while still acting tough.
The pace of the story is good enough but I really want new plot twists. I’ve watched almost every new RPG anime titles so I can say that it just follows a similar route to its predecessors. This is acceptable for those who are new to this anime genre but not for those who have already watched Sword Art Online, Overlord, and the likes. I’m expecting Rimuru will build his own country where all races are accepted and be a good ruler. Other countries will disrupt the peace either because they are jealous of Rimuru’s achievements or they are against humans interacting with monsters. This storyline is too scratched. But I’m hoping That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime will give us something new in the coming episodes.
Do you play RPG? Are you a fan of fantasy world anime? Regardless if it’s either the two or both, you should watch That Time I go Reincarnated as a Slime. This promising RPG anime will surely entertain you. Don’t be fooled by other saying it’s very similar to Overlord and others that belong to the same genre because it’s not. Yes, it’s an overpowered MC but not to the point that he is unbeatable. He is reincarnated to another world but not as a human or other usual races but a mere slime. And he has strong allies but they are not originally strong and they develop along with him. Watching Rimuru and his group progress as a community and overcome hardships together is definitely worth the time.
That’s my take on That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime. The holidays are fast approaching so I don’t know if I can squeeze in watching and writing more anime reviews in my schedule but I’ll try. Are there anime shows you want to be reviewed? If that’s so, feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments sections below. As you might have noticed I only feature anime shows that interests me as of now but I give any title a chance especially those that are highly recommended by fellow anime lovers.
