8/10 if you like hyper active "wot" shenanigans, shit that doesn't make sense, tween drama, and some of the most amazing animation ever along with fantastic art. Like Evangelion meets not total despair and destruction and death. Happy Evangelion. Basically. Idk.

A show for ADD and autistic kids. I see more cleavage in one episode than I do in a porno. The only nips I get to see is the neked teacher guys'. I mean, they're not bad to look at but... yeah.

As a man who was diagnosed with ADHD years ago and who has friends with slight autism and aspergers, I take this comment very offensive, ban please.

Hmm, well, this is an interesting idea. All right, what do you think about Madoka Magica?

Go on, be honest. I promise I won't be mad.

So after a day of trying to find legal means without having to dunk money away, I finally figured "Fuck it." This review will exclude the movies (primarily speaking, the 3rd one).

Alright. *breathes in* Okay *breathes out*

 

Fuck this anime.

 

If I wanted to watch some magical girl bullshit, I'd watch Sailor Moon. At least with Sailor Moon, I have the expectations of it not making sense, and not trying to. Madoka tried to make some abstract bullshit into a science. And that bothered me.

Not only that but the whole thing with Kyubeibeibei just ticked me off, and to add on top of that the scientific theory bullshit and then the explanation of the bullshit to make the bullshit not bullshit. It was fucking bullshit. And then they pretty much just "because magic," to explain all the other bullshit.

All the magical girls of course have some annoying ass costume that looks stupid and overly loli-moe-uguu~

Not to mention some of the characters are just really dramatic or dumb. "Hey, you might die!" "What? Nah... fuck you." *Dies* "Oh my gosh... that guy I met 2 minutes ago ended up dying... oh noooooo.... *becomes darth vader*"

It just seems too much. The lolis, the bullshit plot, the head ache that is the artsy fartsy segments, just... ugh. It just seemed full of itself at times, like overly pretentious just for a coming of age anime with some bullshit moral of the story is: FRIENDSHIP!

I went in expecting a master piece. And... what I got instead... was just...

 

A god damn mother fucking master piece.

 

If you're new to anime, don't watch it yet. Watch it once you have a fair amount of anime under your belt, and you get a feel for what you like. This anime isn't for everyone (but what anime is?).

 

Although I do not like the way they tried to make sense of everything BUT... they did a real good job of explaining it. Far fetched... but believable if you mash the "Just go with it" button. Actually, that's my only real complaint. That, and the anime oozes moe, but... yeah. What do you expect. Although, once you get down to it, it's a sort of coming of age anime. I mean, middle school... emotional stuff... parents... friends... Seems like it. Although (C-c-c-c-c-counter breaker!) the themes, morals, and values it presents can be learned by anyone at any time of their lives.

 

And honestly, the costumes and the headache art are a welcome treat, because this series will get depressing. Only the kawaii of their magical garments and the brightfully hyper colorful arts can even begin to counter act the sad. Which is why I said "Fuck this anime." It made me sad. The feels are reals.

 

The series does something like School Days, in terms of 180ing. You think the series will be this, but then it's like "lol no." But unlike some guy getting too many bitches and reaping the consequences, it's... something a wee bit more complicated.

 

As for pretentiousness, well, when you're telling a story for story's sake through 2D animation and voice acting... well you tend to look a bit artsy. Hence the artsy fartsy parts, symbolism out the ass. Because it's art. Although, what's entertainment/product and what's art is a can of worms I'll probably (never) talk about at some other time.

 

 

 

Don't look up spoilers or a wiki. Just watch it. Only 12 episodes. And from what I hear, a movie (the 3rd one). If you can, by legal means, watch the 3rd movie too if you can. I will. Through legal means. Yeah. Legal means. *cough*

Although, I was warned by a couple people (and I'll pass it on) to basically be weary of the 3rd movie. It changes your views. Good or bad? I don't know. I didn't watch it.

9/10

Would become a magical garment girl.

Like Sol Omega said Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica is a freaking masterpeice. Aside from that though, I am the kind of sap that likes slice of life too much. Stuff like Azumanga Daioh, Watashi ga motenai no wa dou kangaete mo omaera ga warui and Nichijou.

Clip from Nichijou:

On the more controversial side I also like Ouran Highschool Host Club, Lucky Star and Sakura trick (warning: this show features the purest form of love) too much.

Since you were being a dick (I still love you, though :D ) and didn't answer my previous "request", I'll pop another one that was, in my opinion, one of the best anime this year (maybe I'm just a sucker for 3D -ish anime (Apple Seed was pretty awesome, but only the movies)):

 

Sidonia no Kishi

Bruh, I'm working on it.

Give a brotha a moment here.

As for Knights of Sidonia, I have mixed feelings about it (never watched it). I mean, I've watched/read all the stuff the creator has made... and they're good... but they always have draw back. BioMega having a shit end (and not making sense/plot holes/not tying up loose ends), and Blame!/NOiSE! for just not making a tit of sense (or just pushing the barriers of wtf). All wonderfully animated/drawn stuff though.

But maybe he got it right this time?

I don't know.

At first I was like:

So, congratulations, you're back on the "People I'll Spare After I Take Over the World" List. Good thing, too, my list of future subjects was looking a little on the... er, Post-It side.

Also, I feel I should clarify- I'm one of people (or possibly all of the people. Does that mean he knows about us? Er, maybe? So long as he doesn't call the men in white coats, we're fine.) that told Sol to be somewhat wary of the 3rd movie. Well, I think I should clarify for those interested- the movie probably won't change your views on the series proper. In fact, if you end up hating it, it's pretty easy to just torch your memories of it and replace it with whatever your headcanon says happened afterwords. What it might change is your opinion on certain characters within the franchise. Puts some serious new perspective on old faces, you know?

And I won't say any more than that.

Saw Madoka Magica, and I can say it's pretty good. The deconstruction style makes the show watchable.

How about Berserk? My friend read the manga and said it was cool. Should I give the anime of it a shot?

Well as I presume your anime library is similar to mine in size ? (I've seen about 500 animes series ~ without counting in the movies.)

Well seeing your new rule, here's only one anime.. :(

Sugoiyo!! Masaru-san

 

Hehe.. How about Cromartie High school as well? :D

.. And Gokudo-kun Manyuki

I would love to continue naming animes but I'll keep myself back .. :(

I havn't even bothered to watch any animes as of late... oy.

 

 

How about Berserk? My friend read the manga and said it was cool. Should I give the anime of it a shot?

If you don't mind awkward naked men yaoi moments, soldiers dumber than MGS1 genome soldiers, 99% of it being back story/flash back, main character being another "Look at me, I have big sword, main character, ugh feelings," the love interest being a tsunderererere, and being thoroughly disappointed in the ending, then yes. Give it a shot. By all means.

 

But seriously, watch it. The yaoi moments are bromantic than anything else (although........ eh... I'll leave that bit a lone). Yeah, soldiers are dumb in the anime, but it's a medieval dark fantasy setting. Everyone's dumb. Guts, the main character, actually makes the (or at least I like to think so) ridiculous big sword trope. Best part is, he looks like he could. He's buff. And hardcore. As for feelings, and being emo... Well, he has his reasons. And I think they are very very very valid reasons. Although, he's not being emo. Just angry and broody. As for the love interest, she's a bitch at first, but if you take into the consideration the setting and who she is, it makes sense and she has a reason. She later warms up and stuff. As for the ending.......... ehhhh..... Great anime, but remember, back in the day, animes and OVAs were made to get people interested in the series so they would buy the mangas to see what happened next. In other words, it's a cliff hanger. Overall, brutal ass anime with great music (excluding the opening song. Mixed feelings), and cool story.

You could watch the movies to pick up where the anime leaves off I guess... Or read the manga, which I suggest.

Manga is really good. Don't look up the horse. Your friend will know what this means. And ask him about the timelines between the anime and manga, since the anime's timeline (the series' timeline in general) is a bit askew.

 

Also, remember, Berserk is dark fantasy. It doesn't pull punches. It's pretty hardcore. And I don't just mean the blood/gore. It gets pretty fucked up.

 

Edit: updated scores

As is, 8.5/10

If you read the manga, watch the anime, watch the movies, if it ever gets a season 2, if it ends, then 9.5/10.

Sugoiyo!! Masaru-san

No.

Cromartie is funny.

Never heard of the other one. Maybe I'll watch it. It looks like Slayers.

I'm not feeling it, so I'ma skip yours. But yeah. Cromarties is funny.

I can't really bash it without trying too hard. It's funny. Watch it. I say sub over dub. 8.9/10

 

How about Kyoukai no Kanata?

Highschool... Already, we're not off to a great start...

 

So they fight demons...... getting rougher here..... one guy uses a scarf... as a weapon, oh geez. Durarararararara 4 eyes katana girl uses Jet Stream Sam's sword...... oh maaaaaaaan.... and it's basically what if someone made Chuunibyou fight scenes not filler and make it meaningful and plot. plo t plt plo pot olt pt pl to plop top lop lopt

 

Okay. Despite all this stuff I usually detest, I can get behind thi-

I like it. I recommend it. Although some of it is... not original... it's very creative and the characters (not all too terribly original as well, BUT!) are very... believable and almost life like(?). Not to mention the facial body language REALLY helps make them believable and life like (better for the character to frown than to say "I'm upset" basically). Everything looks pretty, even the monsters. Even the buildings. Even the chalk board. Chalk board-senpai, notice me! Really good. Not the best. Certainly not bad. Not mediocre. It's good. Real good. Very fun. 8/10.

 

Basically, take the cliche highschool magical demon romantic action comedy anime tropes and whatever... and make it better. This is what you get. The moe was 3 stronk 5 me. Also, blood.

 

Note: Episode 6 is the obligatory j-pop dancing filler episode.

Hey Sugoiyo!! Masaru-San is one of the best comedies EVER!! It's similar to cromartie but even more whacko, it has a person punching aliens! And a combat style focused solely on distracting people with retarded shit! It has a 40~ year old man who looks like a 80 year old man, who can punch people into the sky and he joined a martial arts group by disguising himself as a student with a skimask!

 

Just watch this... I mean .. Just watch this..

 

If the first one wasn't good.. Just watch the second one as well. .D:
