  • Are We The Baddies??
    That Mitchell and Web skit is all I could think about for several episodes. Tanya and her not-quite-Nazi comrades certainly don't feel like the good guys. in fact there are no good guys. Apparently even god (being x) is a jerk. This show presents some interesting ideas and great animation but ultimately failed to make me care about any of the characters. That may be down to personal preference ...

  • A Five Star Show Through and Through
    I don't normally write reviews, but this show deserves one.

    It's a five star show with thought and intelligence. An interesting story with a refreshingly intriguing protagonist. It doesn't rely on tropes and cliches like so many other animes. It's storytelling and thoughtfulness put it ahead of the rest.

    If you like action, villains and philosophy, you'll enjoy this show.

  • This is my first review
    I feel like the first review anyone writes is special. I've watched a lot of anime, but I've never written a review before, partially because I never felt the anime deserved my time, no matter how much I enjoyed it.

    STE is special. it is unlike any other anime and bucks every genre stereotype. Read further if you want; I promise you'll still be able to enjoy it even knowing these things.

  • Feels new but gives topics we know
    While it's all topics we know, like world war and war time things, Tanya the Evil adds a new twist. We've all seen typical war movies or anime where one unexpected character is just the ace in all war for a selected group. While this happens in the anime it also adds a new twist onto it all at once. Makes you wonder about a few things and keeps you actively thinking. Nice amount of action to not ...

  • Intriguing and Interesting
    Great anime! I loved the story and the way hey develop characters is wonderful. I want more! They make this storyline so easily expandable and I look forward to either more or I may have to read the manga! I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a good short anime to watch.

    Bad plot but good action scenes
    If after watching the first episode you want to watch more to see if the plot gets better, just go away.

    This anime is about the first world war and the adventures of a Tanya a teenager who will do anything she's ask to by their superiors in order to win the war.

  • Nothing quite like it
    I came into this show with hesitation. The premise seemed far fetch. But what I found I was pleasantly surprised. Some key things I enjoyed the most was actually the sound. The voice acting was splendid. The sound effects had some serious weight in them (especially the gunshots). And the music was superb. Considering this is a debut for a studio I am surprised. I want a second season! The sooner ...

  • One of the best anime
    This definitely made it to my top 10 favourite animes. NOT for the faint hearted, or those with a weak constitution, or those just not mentally prepared. It deals with some real aspects of war, shows the ugly, brutal side of humanity, and if you can't handle some death and gore, I suggest watching something else, a shoujo maybe or My Little Pony.

  • At first I was all, but then I was like!
    I refused to watch this anime for the longest time thinking how silly if was to see yet another loli character, but worse a loli character in such a goofy situation. I mean really, it's a blonde cute child no more than a decade old leading a military!?!? OK SURE YEAH RIGHT

    ... but then I finally watch the first episode and I was like: "Wait, who's this cruel salary man characters??" and then I ...

  • Very interesting Concept.
    I love how the studio was able to bring film art into this anime. the shots, the angle taken in dialog. very well balance, philosophy , father complex and idealism together. Makes you wonder why are we all rebellious to our parents but mostly our fathers. regardless, screw.... being X
