5.75 (average) This anime doesn't really have an end: 'till the last episode you have the impression that the real story has yet to begun, that all you've seen is just a long prologue. Waiting for a second season.

9.75 (excellent) A very original plot, centered on the afterlife world. The main characters are all dead, guys who had a cruel life and died without fulfilling their dreams, sent in a world where they learn to accept their memories and pass on. But there are those who fights against God for the pitiless fates they had. That said, it may seem absurd that this is also a very funny anime! I really laughed heartily! So much sadness mixed with a sincere humor with simplicity, that’s exactly what struck me the most: it’s amazing how they managed to make a very sad story so funny without falling into the ridiculous and so touching without being pathetic. Yet the reflections, thoughts, feelings coming at the end... can shake the heart. A wonderful and deep story. The characters are all very nice and enjoyable, led by a very charismatic leader: Yurippe (I loved that nickname!). Wonderful the opening with Tenshi playing the piano, lovely the ending (in both images change depending on the episode) and all the band's songs are beautiful. Nice the preview of the following episode with the voices that overlap, you can’t understand anything! The anime ends up leaving many unanswered questions and many characters shrouded in mystery, yet I didn’t have at all the feeling of being left suspended... There are only 13 episodes, but I don’t think more were needed, because there’s no need to add anything else.

YURI NAKAMURA: "I don’t really care if I become a water flea or whatever, all I want to do is fight God if he really does exist. It’s just too unreasonable, we hadn’t done anything wrong."

7.75 (good) Horror anime, with a very original plot and nice characters. Protagonist is the third class of the ninth year of Yomiyama school, hit by a curse that kills the students because of the presence among them of a dead person. Despite some minor flaws in the course of events, the story can keep you bond until the end, guessing who the dead person is, who will die, what to do to break the curse.

5.75 (average) Keiichiro Tachibana, son of a wealthy family, decided to open a small western-style bakery, aided by a talented pastry chef and two eccentric waiters, with the aim of finding the man who kidnapped him when he was a child. The story revolves around the events of the four characters, while dealing with customers and with their lives.
Nice characters, nice story, but nothing special. I spent almost all the episodes drooling over those wonderful desserts! *.*

7.50 (good) The story revolves around Rin, a boy who discovers he’s Satan’s son. He has great powers that could be used by his evil father to get his hands on Assiah, the world in which the humans live. But Rin wants to become… an exorcist!
I really liked the plot, but this anime is adapted from an ongoing manga, so, as often happens, the latest episodes are created from scratch in order to end the story and they do it rushing a bit. The characters are all very nice, Rin is adorable and Mephisto is so funny! I hope they will do another series, because many questions are left open.

5.50 (average) I don’t know what to say ... This is the anime that I've loved most of all in my childhood, it’s difficult to give an objective opinion. Setting aside the sentimental value, I cannot avoid to consider the many flaws, starting with the main character a little bit too frivolous, that cannot do anything alone but at the end of each series becomes the savior of humanity, not to mention the inept monsters that follow one another incessantly every episode, who all die in the same way. Situations are boringly repetitive. The first series are much more complete: in addition to the adventures of the five protagonists who fight evil, they focus attention on their friendships, school life and things that soon disappear supplanted by the world's problems.

3.50 (below average) I saw it when I was a child and even then I considered it stupid. I understand that anime are works of fantasy, but if they mean to talk about real things they must maintain at least a minimum of verisimilitude. It's ridiculous to see children of 10 years playing in stadiums worthy of the Champions League filled to the brim, school matches broadcasted on TV, 240 episodes dedicated ONLY to a ball. People's life doesn't revolve around a ball! I understand we are talking about football, but the life of a child is not just that! The miss of all sports anime is that they don't talk about anything but sport, and it's boring. And anyway, I don't think that football includes circus tricks, gyrations in the air and leaps of 20 meters, bright fireballs that before arriving in goal make a rush around the world, balloons that pierce the net, fractures and various diseases in spite of which people plays at the risk of the health, soccer fields one thousand miles long that seem to never end and countless of such nonsenses. I'm speechless.

6.50 (above average) Episodic anime are a bit tiring, but I liked very much the idea of this one: powerful cards that create havoc in the city are to be caught by the girl who released them, helped by a cute speaking peluche! It's a bit childish, 'cause the characters are children for the most, but is very enjoyable. I didn't like the second series as the first one.

5.00 (moderate) Episodic anime, dealing with a duo of private detectives and bodyguards, Kaori and Ryo Saeba, a famous but perverted marksman that only accepts to help beautiful girls. Every episode is similar to the others, with a case to solve, involving of course a girl, and Ryo that tries to harass her but always fails in his attempt, mashed by the giant hammer of his partner. I found boring to watch it until the end.

6.00 (average) One of the first anime of my childhood. Nice for its time. The protagonist is a girl who can magically transform herself into a beautiful woman who becomes a famous singer. All the characters are very pleasant and everyone behaves consistently: childs act like childs, the stars are jealous of others' fame and everyone loves Creamy, of course. The songs are very nice, most of the episodes is an end in itself but there's a story, and even the end is coherent with the sequence of events, with no loophole.

9.75 (excellent) I immediately fell in love with it. I have a particular passion for nineteenth-century London, with its mysterious atmosphere, the fog, the rain and the dark alleys, so I adored the setting. There's something that caught me in the general atmosphere that emanates from the pages of the manga, I cannot explain it. The characters are just wonderful: Allen is a great protagonist, the bad guys are misterious and charming and the guys of the scientific section are adorably wacky. But Lavi is my favourite one! The manga is wonderful with its gothic atmosphere and is really well drawn; the anime is quite good too, but is full of fillers, 'til the middle doesn't really follow the story and ends all of a sudden.

LAVI: "Your feelings are so strong, you’re almost dazzling. What are you carrying upon your shoulders together with that Clownish Innocence? It is as if, like the light, you’re going to fade away…"

5.25 (moderate) A poor work that failed in involving me much, although the idea was interesting: what would happen if vampires decide to come out of hiding and live among men? First, I don't like the heroine Mina, that despite the temper doesn't manage in being incisive, then the story has some unclear points, other foreseen, sometimes seems forced. Apart from Mina the other characters are not well characterized, including Akira, one of the main.

Last Updated: Oct 28, 2012

6.00 (average) An anime about books and a very special girl named Dalian, who is actually a living gateway to the Mystic Archives of Dantalian, a library that preserves all of the world's forbidden knowledge. The girl is accompanied by lord Huey Disward, the key holder of the library, whose task is to help Dalian sealing the phantom books they found while solving strange mysteries. I found the idea attractive and I liked the relationship there is between Huey and Dalian. She is a great character, inspite of the plot flaws. I didn't found the thread of a story, every episode is independent and doesn't let anything out about a deeper story to be revealed. Maybe something will be clearer in the next series, 'cause it's not over. The last episode was a bolt from the blue, the situation took a strange turn suddenly, without warning. Anyway, a nice anime, except for the opening and the ending: I found them horrible.

9.75 (excellent) Beautiful openings and music, nice characters, interesting plot surrounded by mistery. The idea of a remuneration to be paid in order to use super powers is very original and all the background of the story is completely new. The second season was unnecessary, according to me, I don't like the turn the story takes. They could have shown more clearly and in detail the end of the first season without going on in more complicated developments. Loved Hei and his double personality.

9.00 (very good) Hypnotic and upsetting, different from everything else. It starts like a masterpiece, but after .... death it became a little ripetitive. Even so, it's unique and Raito and L are great characters, their brilliant moves are always unexpected and unpredictable. One of the strong point in the anime is that it never leaves doubts, everything is perfectly explained. For once the main character is an anti-hero and it's so weird not knowing whether to root for the "good guys" or the "bad guys"!!

Dragon Ball

Seen: completely

Last Updated: Jun 16, 2016

6.00 (average) The beginning of the story is quite enjoyable. The plot is well articulated and many things prevent it from being boring. We not only have battle, but also friendship, trainings, funny moments, and many interesting secondary characters.
Dragon Ball Z is focused above all on battles. I really hate the fact that people revive so easily, that every battle lasts for weeks, that the enemies follow each other as in a climax, from the weakest to the strongest and they always target our Earth. This series always follows the same repetitive scheme, and the characters - Goku above all - seem to have no feelings: they only think about training and fighting, they only live for this. Also the fact that the dragon balls can grant any wish diminishes every event: why do you have to be sad about someone's death or the Earth exploding into a thousand pieces? In the end it comes down to nothing, everything returns to normality in two seconds and nothing changes.
I didn't like the third season at all: a useless addition.

The main character is very nice and I really LOVED the opening with the wonderful "Falling Down" by Oasis.

Accustomed to the battlefields, Sosuke sees in every banal situation of everyday life dangers and conspiracies that don't exist, inventing extreme solutions that lead to an inevitable hilarity, very original! Sosuke is so hopelessly plagiarized as to be adorable and Chidori is the first girl I've seen in an anime with such a strong personality!

9.50 (excellent) Great paranormal anime, sometimes really frightening, but without using violence. The main characters are Kazuya Shibuya, a ghost hunter who uses the most modern technologies to solve problems related to spirits, and Mai, a girl who acts as his assistant; other characters revolve around them, forming a very good team. There isn't a main story in the anime: it's composed by eight stories, lasting 3-4 episodes each one, unrelated to each other, that test the abilities of the characters in many different situations. The stories are well designed and have different solutions. The atmosphere is very convincing, the tension can be touched, even the music is perfect and contributes in creating the right mood.

6.25 (average) Mystery, with a bizarre protagonist and a plot that is a bit pretentious, where some good stories get lost, wasted in unnecessary frills, with characters not interesting at all. It gets particularly on my nerves Kujo that goes around the whole academy screaming “Victorika!” (because that is how the french Victorique is read, apparently) at least ten times in each episode. And, of course, Victorique is strange, as the duty of every self-respecting hero. Even the setting is not that good: the academy is very cold and all the buildings are excessively large and isolated in the midst of huge empty meadows. I was not particularly impressed with the musics, and in general, saving some parts of the plot quite interesting, everything is pretty mediocre.

A very simple story and yet not boring at all. G.T.O. manages to entertain until the end without being trite or predictable, thanks to the original hero and all his absurd ideas. All the characters in the series are well characterized and grow during the story, although remaining coherent to themselves. Funny, crazy, a must see.

5.00 (moderate) The bad copy of Code Geass. So copied that the comparison cannot be avoided, so bad that the comparison is immensely humiliating. The few original things of the story and the few decent characters drown in a plot that is meaningless and confusing from the beginning to the end: the characters' actions are never explained and often seems to be inconsistent, battles are insignificant, without strategy and without a stated goal and in the end there's always the Apocalypse, a hackneyed idea. The only thing worth mentioning is the art, with a wonderful character design and gorgeous scenery.

8.75 (very good) K-On! belongs to the slice-of-life genre, so there isn’t a plot, the episodes are fairly episodic. There are only female characters and their main characteristic is an incredible amount of cuteness!! The episodes show the school life of the five main characters while doing their cute, funny things revolving around the light music club. It’s a comedy, so nothing dramatic or upsetting happens, only humorous and fun situations galore, that give a warm and light feeling. The characters, even if they fall a bit into stereotypes of the moe genre, have nice personalities and realistic emotions, they’re likable despite not being particularly well developed. The animation is very good and the music too, but, in truth, I was hoping that the music would be given a greater role. Moreover, the first two years of school have been condensed into just 13 episodes, I would have liked to see something more.

I liked the narration of the facts carried out by an external voice, which made the story looks like a fairy tale told by a dear granny before going to bed. I liked the animation and the art. Some fights were spectacular, to compensate for loooong speeches.
I didn’t feel particular sympathy for the characters, but my opinion was redeemed at the end. Both have shown various parts of themselves and have changed a lot, throughout the story.
I was surprised by the length of the episodes (almost 50 min.), each one with a different ending theme.
Anyway, more than a sword technique, the Kyotōryū looks like a martial art. Also, it left me a bit puzzled that guns and dolls can be defined swords: they are simply weapons.

The anime has the same great characters, Ciel and Sebastian, but a pretentious story, too different from the manga and that sometimes makes the characters contradict themselves in their actions. I didn't like it, they could have made a wonderful transposition with such a great story but they ruined it because they couldn't wait for the manga to go on a bit more. No need for the second season: it ruined the final of the first one (the only acceptable thing) with a forced story and introduced new characters that I didn't like, a mirror-portrait of the main couple.

SEBASTIAN MICHAELIS: "You struggle desperately and kick others down, you rob and are robbed in return, all the while repeating your excuses, yet still you aim for the yonder over the hills. That is exactly why I find humans so amusing."
