    Best Anime of 2013 (IMO)
    This is my favorite anime of 2013 for a reason.

    For starters, let's address the big elephant in the room that turns people away: the different animation style. I'm going to be honest, at first, it looks like a video game, but after a while, you get used to it.

    Anyways, let's get on to the storyline. The plot of Arpeggio is one of the best out there. It follows Gunzou and his ship, I-401 ...

    pretty and almost interesting
    This show literally goes no where, provides no answers, and delivers on nothing but naval-scifi-hot girls fanservice. It's certainly not bad, and were it not for the fact that it literally accomplishes nothing but booms, boobs, plot conveniences, and the occasional interesting scene it would have had another star easily.

    The best things about this show are that it kept the fan service to a ...

    Excellent and straight to the point
    Well I just completed the anime. At first I had my doubts but I am glad I hung in there. The characters, the graphic and the story line are great. This arc was completed in just 12 episodes. It got straight to the point, no fillers, no hidden agendas, you understood the story line and watched each character grow. So with that said, over and out with this review, straight to the point! But I do ...

    Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova
    I love this anime.
    It magnificently blends the warships of World War 2 and Sci-Fi (Reminds me of Space Battleship Yamato....sort of......)
    Also, the music is totally boss.
    The animation takes a little adjusting though; it's purely CG.

    How Things Should Be
    Many an anime that are just a second-party reanimation of a previous work, be the work a VN, a Light Novel, a Manga, etc., tend to be awesome up until the the last few critical stages. These animes tend to either skip out on a lot of important plot details, cut short a few key scenes, or simply leave the ending hanging at the very end.

    To be fair, this is not entirely of the animators ...

    Grey Lady Down, or Miniskirt Battleships
    This Anime is sleek, jagged, soft and hardcore all rolled into a Torpedo. Lets start with the story. The story is pretty good with excellent character development over a short time, and by good, I mean that you can see the subtle changes occur, when they occur. With some of the characters it's very easy to spot, with others it's almost impossible to tell until something is revealed. Then when ...

    Arpeggio of Blue Steel(good)
    This an amazing anime in my view, it may have a few quirks but it grips the attention. Its animation quality is also commendable in the fact that most of the time the mouth matches the words instead of the mouth moving after the words have already been said.

    Definitely a refresher
    Truly a nice breather for me from the normal anime that I watch and I must say that I was quite impressed by this. Between the action sequences and the comedy, this series stands out as one of my new favorites. I really recommend it for anyone that's looking for a new anime to watch!
