    If schizophrenia was an anime
    So far I have mixed feelings on this anime. The MC is like every kid who takes one year of psych fresh out of high school and suddenly thinks they are functioning on a higher level than everyone around them and understand things that most people do not (pretty obnoxious and boring if you've experienced this person in real life). Now here's the real plot twist... Unfortunately what started out ...

    An interesting take on a game that bit off more than it could chew
    I've played The Caligula Effect the whole way through, and it was a game that had a lot of promise but fell flat in several aspects, like the incredibly clunky battle system and it having 500+ characters that are all just inferior versions of the main cast. However, the aspects that it delivered on, like the overall story and the music, it REALLY came through with them. As such, I had high ...

    Best potential, did not deliver (ノД`)・゜
    Black Rock Shooter meets Matrix. Introspective anime.

    Characters aren’t stupid. Animation quality is nice. Everything’s being all cryptic and mysterious, so we have time to get to know the characters instead of having their bios force fed to us via in-your-face exposition, which is also nice.

    If the plot actually ties together in the end, it’ll probably make my top twenty ...

    anime for people who think they're smart
    This anime seems to try and be really deep but is really just some action anime with some mystery thrown in.
    If you're looking for psychological thriller this is not it.
    Even as an action anime there has been 1 large fight scene in 7 episodes so if you are here for action you aren't getting that very much either.
    Overall mediocre at best but I keep watching cause it isn't unbearable.

    Nothing happens and it's still confusing
    It's like they saw how confusing and completely direcitonless Dies Irae was and decided that the real problem with that anime was the action. So you have the same sort of supernatural / sci-fi nonsense mixed with an /r/iamverysmart protagonist wandering around doing not hing in particular for incomprehensible reasons.

    bad rap at the start
    So far only 2 episodes have come out and i have high hopes for this anime. The plot starts a little confusing but i believe everything will be explained better just need time. The art style is interesting and the plot seems like it will take off very soon. Has great prospects just needs more than 2 episodes.

  • Good concept, well given action, but a bit confusing
    This anime is an adaptation of a video game which in most cases follows the story line but does not explain enough like the video game does. The story line is very interesting and the action scenes make you want to keep watching. However there are too many random sentences being said that take time which could be used to explain the plot. But it gives the watcher a view on fake happiness and that ...

  • just what is happiness
    from the onset, a pretentious high school boy explains some esoteric psychology term to a high school girl. But lucky for us this is not going to be a romcom and it sets a certain literary tone for the show.


    Conversations are subpar but thank heaven not too much cliche and characters felt ...

  • It was ok for me!!!!
    I thought that this anime was okay. Some of the stories did not make sense to me and how it ended. I am not sure where the author wants the story to go... But, overall it was okay for me to watch and not very interesting. The thing is I watch it until the end was because I might find it interesting.

  • Great Music, But I Didn't Feel the Hook
    Usually when a bunch of highschoolers with reality eschewing weaponry team up with a fairy you are in for a world of wacky comedy. This is not what happens here. Instead they explore some serious issues and have rather meaningful themes. I can't strongly recommend this though. The idea has been done better. There is some great music, so if you have some time to kill and want something on the ...
