Review: Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle

Review: Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle (Non-Spoilery)   Season Aired: Fall 2020 - 12 episodes MAL Link: Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle I watched it at: Funimation   Review: This show takes the classic trope about captured and sleeping princesses and turns the concept on its head.  In doing so, it finds a fresh and entertaining perspective on the classic fantasy premise.   The Plot in a Nutshell: The Demon King captures the Pri

Review: Monster Girl Doctor

Review: Monster Girl Doctor (Non-Spoilery)   Season Aired: Summer 2020 - 12 episodes MAL Link: Monster Girl Doctor I watched it at: Crunchyroll   Review: With this show, what's inside the tin is exactly what's printed on the label.  You have the main character who is a doctor whose patients all seem to be lady monsters.  Now it is apparent that the doctor studied monster issues as his medical specialty. That's all good. What's not so clear is if

Review: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Non-Spoilery)   Season Aired: Spring and Summer 2019 - 24 episodes MAL Link: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba I watched it at: Funimation   Review: This was easily one of the best Anime of 2019. It is also sitting with a very high score on MAL, so you might say it enjoys universal acclaim.  All this for good reason: it is a superb anime. The English Blu-Ray of the first 13 episodes just shipped from Funimati

Anime Series Ratings

Nine-Tailed Fox Anime Series Ratings These are all the series I have watched and the scores I gave them.  Link to my review is provided, if I made one for the show. I only rate anime series that I have watched in their entirety that season.  Usually I binge the series when the season is complete to get the full impact. My ratings system is based on how pleased my brain is with the viewing experience.  There is a lot of anime out there to watch and much of it is terribly forgettab

Review: My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! (non-spoilery)   Season Aired: Spring 2020 MAL Link: My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! I watched it at: Crunchyroll   Review: This show adds to the ever growing list of "Isekai" Anime that have been released over the last few years.

Review: Infinite Dendrogram

Review: Infinite Dendrogram (Non-Spoilery)   Season Aired: Winter 2020 - 13 episodes MAL Link: Infinite Dendrogram I watched it at: Funimation   Review: Anime shows that are about living in a fantasy game world are somewhat common. I tend to enjoy these shows because I enjoy fantasy games.  I am the target audience. These shows have the complete freedom to combine the elements of a sword and sorcery world with the high-tech elements which would m

Review: Darwin's Game

Review: Darwin's Game (Non-Spoilery)   Season Aired: Winter 2020 - 11 episodes MAL Link: Darwin's Game I watched it at: Crunchyroll   Review: Darwin's Game has some cool ideas and some fun fight scenes.  However, it will give your brain's suspension of disbelief circuits a workout. Now, most anime does require that the viewer suspend their disbelief in order to roll with the fictional story about incredible things.  All good. The problem wit

Review: Goblin Slayer

Review: Goblin Slayer (Non-Spoilery) Season Aired: Fall 2018 - 12 episodes MAL Link: Goblin Slayer I watched it at: Funimation   Review: In fantasy games, goblins are often a low level monster that present an early challenge to players, but are rarely seen again beyond the very early game.   They are good for some early experience, but players typically have no interest in goblins once better options are available. I mean, I personally don't certainly

Review: Made In Abyss

Review: Made in Abyss (Non-Spoilery)   Season Aired: Summer 2017 - 13 episodes MAL Link: Made in Abyss I watched it at: Amazon Prime   Review: The art style of this show might lead you to believe that this is a show intended for a young audience.  It is not. Made in Abyss is an 'R' rated show intended for more mature audiences.  In fact, showing this series to a child might just traumatize them, honestly. This series has scenes in it

Review: Adachi and Shimamura (Non-Spoilery)   Season Aired: Fall 2020 - 12 episodes MAL Link: Adachi and Shimamura I watched it at: Funimation   Review: This is a Yuri anime.  Yuri is a Japanese jargon term for characters, themes, content and a genre involving lesbian relationships or female homoeroticism.
