10.00 (excellent) Despite some minor flaws I enjoyed it so much that I must give him 10! The plot is interesting and original, can keep you glued to the TV until the end; two major events intertwine: the meeting of the protagonist Kenji with the large family of his friend Natsuki, and the informatic apocalypse that hits the virtual world of Oz. The virtual world is rendered with a very different graphic from the beautiful pictures of the anime, but it's very nice. The various members of the family are very well defined, perhaps the only one who would need a little more details is just Kenji!

10.00 (excellent) AWESOME! The best anime I've ever seen!! Lelouch Lamperouge gets the power of absolute command from a mysterious girl named C.C., and decides to fight the Holy Britannian Empire, which ruled over most of the world with an iron fist, to create a peaceful world for his sister. The events follow each other at an incessant rhythm, with a thousand twists; the characters are many and memorable, the main character most of all: his plans are always complicated but perfectly logical, and his personality and character seem to change completely when he becomes Zero, his theatrical alter-ego. The musics, including openings and endings, are beautiful, the graphics are wonderful and the dubbing perfect. The end is great, brilliant, even if shocking.

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…"

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.

9.75 (excellent) A relaxing anime, with very calm tones, a good story - though not particularly original - and nice characters. Japanese folklore has always fascinated me so I particularly liked this story whose protagonist is Natsume, a boy who can see Yokai and owns a strange book, inherited from his grandmother, who allows him to have control over Yokai whose names are written on it.
It feels kind of nostalgic..

9.75 (excellent) A demoniacal butler and his master, a cute little bastard: what a great couple! Gothic atmosphere (London again!), evilness and cynism for an awesome manga that keeps you in suspense in every situation. Dark, creepy and funny, with a wonderful plot line and very good art. 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.

Pandora Hearts

Last Updated: Jul 18, 2012

9.75 (excellent) I don’t give 10 to this because I don’t like the anime, but it’s a pity ‘cause I just adore the manga. It has everything: friendship, love, obsession, madness, loyalty, betrayal, insanity, sadism… sometimes it’s sweet and melancholic, some others twisted and wicked. I read it in few days ‘cause I was swallowed in Wonderland! Although many ideas are taken from the beautiful tale by Lewis Carroll (especially some of the characters and their names), the story is original and engaging, unpredictable and full of twists. Nothing is as it seems… I think it’s the first manga in which I found not even a character to hate: maybe ‘cause they’re all wonderfully characterized and all their action are shown the reasons behind; also because even the bad guys are not totally evil, they’re just so mad! I can’t even blame that psycho, Vincent! On the contrary, he’s one of my favorite characters, along with Elliot and Break (I love how he pops out of nowhere and irritates everybody!!). Even the female characters are not useless, whining and silly as often. Just stunning. As for the anime… the only thing I liked was the ost.

OSWALD BASKERVILLE: "I think of Jack Vessalius rather like water. Like water’s still surface, so very clear that even fish cannot thrive within it. Even if you look hard within it, you will only see yourself reflected. He should be right in front of your eyes… but instead, there is only an unsettling feeling of nothing being there at all."

Angel Beats!

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."

9.50 (excellent) A beautiful story, actually very simple (it deals with the journey of a girl in a fantastic but a little terrifying land, who wants to get back home), told in so delicate way as to arouse strange feelings of peace and tranquility although being involved in the bewilderment of the protagonist who find herself in a mysterious and alien world. Excellent characterization of the characters, fabulous locations, great musics and even a bit of comedy.

Ouran High School Host Club

9.50 (excellent) Amusing! Among the funniest anime I've ever seen. The main character is Haruhi, a girl of humble origins who manages, thanks to her excellent grades, to attend a private school for super rich people. Many other characters, which cannot be defined "secondary", revolve around her, and they're all fully characterized. An original story, always entertaining, never vulgar, lacking in the usual romantic platitudes.

TAMAKI SUOH: "Mama, Haruhi’s using those dirty boy words again!"

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

9.50 (excellent) Very nice. The main character is a girl who can travel through time, but this is not the usual sci-fic movie. It starts focusing on frivolous problems of a high school girl daylife, but becomes very deep, dealing with the consequences of the girl's decisions.

KAZUKO YOSHIYAMA: "He said he would definitely return one day. Though I didn't plan on waiting for him. And so much time has passed. It didn't last long. A blink of an eye. But, Makoto... you're not like me, right? If someone were late to meet you... wouldn't you run out to meet him?"

Ghost Hunt

Seen: completely

Last Updated: Oct 27, 2012

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.

MAI TANIYAMA: "What the hell is pride worth if you have somebody else protect it for you, anyway?"

Howl's Moving Castle

Last Updated: Jun 16, 2016

9.25 (very good) Miyazaki's works are always beautiful but I loved this one particularly because of the magic, the story, the breathtaking settings and the meanings. The strange thing about this animated film is that it's very difficult to sum up the plot because a thousand things happen that seemingly have nothing to do with each other, but that all together make up the story. And… in the simplicity of the whole there is something extremely pleasant.

HOWL: "I give up, I see no point in living if I can't be beautiful."

Last Updated: Jun 16, 2016

9.25 (very good) Kiki's adventures (Kiki is a young witch facing her apprenticeship in a foreign city) are narrated in a pleasant and light way, without any major events, dangerous situations or mysteries, as we are used to see everywhere; a very simple and enjoyable story in which, for once, there isn't any bad guy that puts a spoke in the wheel for some reason! There are only the characters with their dreams to be realized, and you really end up becoming attached to them, while dealing with their everyday problems.

JIJI: "Okay, first: Don’t panic. Second: Don’t panic. And third: Did I mention not to panic?"

9.25 (very good) Epic. I'm not really a mecha fan, but this is a must see for all anime lovers: the story of a stubborn man and a shy boy (Kamina and Simon) that live in the underground with all the humanity, confined there by some monsters at the service of a king that doesn't allow them to go out. But they reach for the sky! A search for freedom that proceeds in a climax from the struggle for survival in the underground, to the conquest of the surface until the absolute freedom, breaking through the heavens! The pace is relentless with a thousand twists and all the characters are excellently characterized and manage to fully engage the viewer in their actions. Great ost also.

KAMINA: "Don't believe in yourself, believe in me who believes in you!"

9.25 (very good) Looking at the art I thought this was going to be a childish anime... I was wrong and it was a big surprise! I was absorbed in a world populated by magical girls who give away their soul for a wish, strange oneiric witches borrowed from an old-fashioned puppet theater and unfair logics of survival and balance guarded by hateful beings without feelings. A very original and engaging story, very deep and sad too. I loved the soundtrack (it reminds me of celtic music) and the ending song by Kalafina.

9.00 (very good) The funniest anime I've ever seen! It's the story of a boy, Sosuke Sagara, trained from childhood as a soldier, who is to attend a normal school to defend a girl, Chidori, from the aims of an evil organization. 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!

9.00 (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"!!

9.00 (very good) Eikichi Onizuka, an ex-hoodlum in a famous motorcycle gang, decides to become a teacher and has to deal with a class of terrible students, determined to oust him from the school. 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.

8.75 (very good) An unexpected surprise that captured me from the beginning. Great concept and story line, even if the plot isn't completely clear in some points. I liked the idea of a crazy game that involves few chosen people that can make Japan a better place using a large sum of money and a phone that grants any request. The main character is very nice and I really LOVED the opening with the wonderful "Falling Down" by Oasis.

K-On!

Last Updated: Nov 08, 2012

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.

YUI HIRASAWA: "When I first heard "Light Music Club" I thought it was all about easy music, so I joined thinking maybe I'll be playing castanets."

Tenma Tsukamoto, a second high school student, is in love with her classmate Karasuma, who doesn't notice her; Harima Kenji, the school bully, is in love with Tenma who doesn't notice him. A heap of laughs for those who like stupid but terribly funny people, tons of misunderstandings that never become banal, absurd situations with paradoxical expedients and various quotes in parody size! Most of the episodes is very inconclusive and yet you get never tired of laughing and in the end, however, you can see the thread of a story and characters' growth is noticeable. What a pity that the last series, San Gakki, wasn't carried out, replaced by a shameful summary and two final episodes that conclude the story hastily throwing to the winds a masterpiece of comedy.

Sometimes there are contradictions in the plot, it seems they do everything possible to lengthen the stock, and this is annoying. I don't like neverending stories.

7.75 (good) A nice love comedy, different from the usual mawkish series full of cliches.

From the beginning, actually, you know how it will end, but everything happens in an unexpected way and to tell the truth ... I didn't like that much the last 3-4 episodes. Anyway, great series, without the usual speeches about love, without a minute of boredom, without obtuse or airhead characters you would like to kick; with intense feelings.

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.

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.

7.25 (above average) A beautiful love story, very sweet but with a little bitter aftertaste... A shy young man in love with a woman older than him, a florist widow and the ghost of her husband, who cannot let her go: these are the protagonists. I felt a deep sympathy for Atsushi-san (the ghost), despite his possessiveness and its undisputed selfishness I couldn’t help but being sorry for him. I really liked the idea of this story, but I would have developed the plot in a different way: the whole business of the illustrated book was a bit crazy and I didn’t understand much of it, and the story of the bones was quite gruesome.

7.00 (above average) I liked the many unsaid and not shown things, the fake truth, the unspoken feelings and the objectives only revealed at the end. 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.
