Overview: Aoyama is a brilliant soccer player who also happens to be a germaphobe. When he starts highschool he defies expectations by going to a school that isn't particularly strong at soccer and there continues to go about his daily life. Review: The whole way through the Summer 2017 anime season I kept this show … Continue reading Clean Freak Aoyama-Kun Series Review – It’s a Gag Anime About a Germaphobe Soccer Player: What Do You Really Expect?
Review: I kind of knew starting this that I probably wasn't the audience for this show so while there is actually nothing wrong with this as a first episode it absolutely did not appeal to me. When we got to six minutes and the race commentator was still introducing each quirky team so that each … Continue reading TWOCAR Episode 1: Just Not For Me
Review: The team are still worried that Aoyama will leave for a better offer, despite every bit of evidence suggesting that Aoyama has no interest in doing so, and Zaizen attempts a heart-to-heart though given his basic personality that goes about as well as expected. We then spend the rest of the episode in another … Continue reading Clean Freak Aoyama-Kun Episode 12: Apparently There’s a Reason
Overview: An up-and-coming power player, Taiga Kagami, is just back from America. When he comes to Seirin High School, he meets the super-ordinary boy, Tetsuya Kuroko. Kagami is shocked to find that Kuroko isn't good at basketball, in fact, he's bad! And he's so plain that he's impossible to see. But Kuroko's plainness lets him … Continue reading Kuroko’s Basketball Season 1 Series Review: Dribble, Pass, Shoot, Score
Review Episode 7: Probably the biggest issue I have with shows like this is I miss the point sometimes of whether they are attempting to be serious or not. The introduction of a girl who can touch Aoyama introduces a new insight into his character given Aoyama suddenly starts experimenting with things outside of his … Continue reading Clean Freak Aoyama-Kun Episodes 7 + 8: Is That Supposed To Be A Serious Development?
Overview: After two seasons of this, you kind of already know this is an anime about the Karasuno volleyball team. Season 3 picks up immediately from season 2 and we see the final match to decide whether they get to go to nationals. I've previously reviewed season 1 + 2 of Haikyuu and I have … Continue reading Haikyuu Season 3 Series Review
Overview: Right, so if you've been living under a rock and haven't already been told the story of Haikyuu a million times (followed emphatically by people telling you to watch it immediately), it's the story of two guys who initially hate each other who end up on the same volleyball team. Or at least that's … Continue reading Haikyuu Season 2 Series Review
Review Episode 50: Haikyuu has this issue with season endings. Season 1 ended on a low note for the team and a point that would have driven me crazy if season 2 wasn't sitting ready to go. Season 2 has ended on a high note for the team but we didn't get to the end … Continue reading Haikyuu Episode 50
Review Episode 48: The team are all ready to go into the third set and we're still moving those shining moments around the players from both teams, even spending some time getting backstory on player 16 from Aoba. Tsukishima is also getting his fair share of time to shine even though he kind of got … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 48 + 49
Review Episode 46: While the first set may have been satisfying but not thrilling, the writers shake things up again with the new player on the Aoba side. He's a wild card for both Karasuno and the audience and his playing style is kind of intense (if a little erratic). It kind of looks like … Continue reading Haikyuu Episode 46 + 47
