    Discussion thread


    Plot Overview

    Characters & Story "Is it better to have loved and lost than to never to have loved at all?" Mari Okada as a writer has always been a mixed bag, she could write moving stories found in Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, powerful teenage dramas in True Tears to less than likable stories where she puts drama for the sake of drama such as in Aquarion Evol, AKB0048 and to an extent Fractale. But luckily, Nagi No Asukara is one of her best works yet. Originally I was under the impression that this series will be in a similar vein of Romeo & Julliet when the first episode showed us a world whe...

  • [Review] Steins;Gate (Anime)

    [Review] Steins;Gate (Anime)

    Steins;Gate is one of the most interesting and unique TV Anime in the last years. The plot, far from the topics in the Japanese animation industry attracts us from the very beginning and makes us both laugh and suffer during the journey of the self called "Mad Scientist" Rintaro Okabe and his friends in one of most dangerous experiments ever made.

    One day a young man called Okabe and his friend Mayuri are going to see a conference about time traveling in Akihabara since Okabe is a scientist. After the conference he finds a girl on the floor covered in blood and sends a message about that to a friend, just right when he is pushing the 'send' button something happens: for a...

    [Review] Another

    In 1975 in Yomiyama North high school there was one student called Misaki. That student was very popular and loved by both students and teachers, so when Misaki died in an accident the entire class was devastated. A few days later and unable to get over the loss of their mate someone pretended like Misaki were still alive sitting in his desk. Since then the entire 3-3 class acted like if nothing happened until the graduation where the ghost of Misaki appeared between his classmates in the graduation ceremony photo that year.

    24 years later a young boy called Sakakibara is transferred from Tokyo to Yomiyama to live with his grandparents since his father is w...

    “What creates life is a wish”

    - Magia

Enter the world of the Puella Magi, where all of your deepest desire comes true for a very dear price. At first you may think of this as a typical Mahou Shojou (Magic Girl) genre anime with annoying characters and a childish plot, but by the time you delve deeper, you will know it is beyond any conformity and norms of a typical magic girl show. This anime will show to us the monstrosity of human nature in a subtle and unexpected manner. A rare form of anime that will make you question yourself, others, and humanity as a whole.

  • The Qwaser of Stigmata review

    The Qwaser of Stigmata review

    "Breast milk as a plot device, genius"

    Fanservice has always been a plight on anime, quite allot of the time there is some form of it in anime whether it’s straight out bare breasts or panty shots. We already have quite a few stereotypes attached to the anime viewer which only is correct for a small percentage of said crowd. Whether it’s that all Anime is for kids, or all anime is porn. There is always something that the stubborn “Westerner” must brand us with. Qwaser isn’t going to win any awards any time soon, nor is it going to help rid the stereotypes of the Anime fan. However Qwaser is… Well, read for yourself.

  • Nichijou (My ordinary life) Review

    Nichijou (My ordinary life) Review

    Year: 2011
    episodes: 26
    Genre: Comedy, Slice-of-life
    Studio: Kyoto Animation

    Writer: Keiichi Arawi
    Director: Tatsuya Ishihara
    Music: Yuuji Nomi

    “Life is so meaningless we might as well try to make ourselves extraordinary.”

    –Francis Bacon
    Define your ordinary life. Going to school, walking with friends, doing school work, and rampaging through the hallway while being chased by a mad buffalo? Well, besides the first three things I’ve mentioned, probably not. Well, this is pretty much what this show all about, things that can make you go “what the hell is going on?!” over and over. It’s either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on who is watching it, or if that person is afraid of buffalos, so to speak. What’s actually funny here is that the title “My ordinary life” is kinda contradicting to the whole show itself. But as they say, what may be bizarre to you may just be ordinary to some. It may be the case for t...

    Black Rock Shooter (OVA) Review

    Black rock shooter – OVA Review

    The singing synthesizer Vocaloid has brought about a flourish of songs onto the internet. From sites such nico nico douga (a Japanese video sharing site) to YouTube (international vide sharing site, but predominantly English), they all seem to have at least more than five Vocaloid songs. While Vocaloid has existed before Hatsune Miku and my personal favourite Megurine Luka, it has only become so popular because of their moe mascots. If you want something to sell on Japan add some moe. Now what has all of this got to do with the OVA Black rock shooter? Well the

    [Review] Angel Beats

    Year: 2010
    episodes: 13
    Genre: Drama, Comedy, Action, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romance
    Studio: P.A. Works
    Writer: Jun Maeda
    Director: Seiji Kishi
    Music: Jun Maeda , Anant-Garde Eyes

    "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience"
    – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
    Angel Beats is no ordinary anime. In fact if you delve deeper into its context, subliminal or otherwise, you will find there is plenty to see here that meets the eye. Its your typical drama anime with a mix of comedy and a dash of romance and action, but the twist is that everyone is dead and the entire scenario deals with the afterlife. Yes, the afterlife, a scenario not anyone can make a full vision of. But surprisingly, the afterlife here is nothing we expect it to be; typical high school life. But of course it gets better from here, because if you abide to the laws of this place your soul will eventually find eternal rest. Well here i...

    [Review] Amagami SS

    Amagami SS "Gentle bite" Original air: July 2, 2010 to December 23, 2010 26 episodes Released by ALC Amagami SS isn't your typical visual novel adaptation. Unlike other adaptations, such as the Key VNs (Kanon, Air, Clannad) or the TYPE-MOON works (Fate, Tsukihime), this follows an omnibus format. For those that don't know what that means, it's basically several different arcs told separately, with each arc reseting after the final episode. This, in turn, gives Amagami an interesting experience. Due to the omnibus format, each arc is treated differently. The personalities of characters, storytelling, and even pacing are different; which makes it feel as if you're w

    [Review] Saikano (She, The Ultimate Weapon)

    (She, The Ultimate Weapon)
    a.k.a. The Last Love Song On This Little Planet

    13 Episodes (Feels like 26, though)

    Animated by Studio Gonzo

    Originally aired from July 2, 2002 to September 24, 2002

    Shuji and Chise in one of those rare moments when they aren't crying
    The short version dictates: Saikano sucks. But I know you’re here for the long review, so I put some effort to prove why this series sinks so hard in the deep ocean that’s the anime world. Where to begin? Let’s talk about the plot…or the lack of it. This anime starts in a generic seaside Japanese city in what seems like modern times (It will move later to other tasteless locations). Meet boring guy Shuji, who will become Chise’s boyfriend for the rest of the series. Chise is…Shuji’s girlfiend and, most importantly, for unknown reasons, she is the Ultimate Weapon and Japan’s last chance to survive against the “Enemy”, an unknown army with unknown weapons doing unknown thingies, besides bombardin...

    (Review) ToraDora!


    25 Episodes -

    Original run from October 2, 2008 to March 26, 2009

    Genre: Romantic-Comedy

    Disclaimer: This is my first review proper for the general population of HF (Outside my blog). So, any constructive criticism is welcome. I did my best to assure a nice read but I'm sure I've some aspects to improve. Ah, Toradora! This is the kind of anime that sooner or later you will hear about. Especially if you’re into romantic comedies. So, the questions are: is it as good as they say? Or is it as boring and shallow as you are thinking? Well, I’d say it’s not great but not bad either. Keep reading to find out why. Let’s begin with the technical aspects. The art style is a delicious mix of two worlds: Shojo and Shonen, with a clear preference for the former. The vivid colors and high quality animation blow other romantic comedies out of the water. Even the action scene...
