  • Good Premise, But Very Awkward Pacing...
    I've been a huge kagepro fan for years and this was my most anticipated anime of the season. But it seems like I've set my expectations a bit too high. It's good that I've read both the novels and manga, so everything made some sense to me.
    The anime cleared up a lot of things I didn't understand from the story, but still failed to make a good impression on me. The comedy feels really forced at ...

  • Mind Blown.... Literally
    This show has amazing art let me just say. Not only does the art pull you in, the story is so clouded that I couldn't ignore it. I think I should point out that this anime requires some attention. I don't think Mekakucity Actors is a show you should kind of "watch". Every episode contains hint at the situation even in the music. The story is unique in my opinion.

    My only reason for not giving ...

    A strange story that doesn't quite satisfy
    When I saw this I felt like it may be another Durarara!, a strange story that doesn't make much sense, yet pans out in the end. I have to admit that I was a quite bit disappointed.

    The characters and artwork in this anime are very good, it is the story that fails the characters instead of the other way around. I really enjoyed each character's unique personality and ability, but it was very ...

  • Mekakucity Actors will steal your heart
    Gonna make this quick. Shaft is notorious for their intensely creative animation and filming style, and deliver yet again with this anime. Albeit confusing at times, the plot is complex and delves in depth into each character that is unique and round. This anime's strong points: Animation and character profiles. Plot is great as well. This anime's weak point: For whatever reason, the show was ...

  • A case of "what could've been"
    The entire show was moving along at a great pace, albeit leaving the viewer in a state of confusion (the confusion isn't bad, it is actually a pro instead of a con. When the 'pieces' finally come together in the end, it really leaves you satisfied that the questions you had are answered), but the good vibes come to a screeching halt when you reach "Ayano's Theory of Happiness" (episode 9 i ...

  • This Is Mind Bending - But Awesome!
    Yes, the plot was rushed (especially towards the end!), and it was confusing and not always clarified. In fact, I'm pretty sure that you need to have a background of the songs and review summaries of episodes to fully understand it. Nonetheless, if you can get the gist of it, I'm sure that you will love it. It's a typical Shaft show with many supernatural and mysterious occurrences, many great ...

  • Honestly it needed to be more "Stand Alone"
    Don't get me wrong it was a good anime and its music numbers were good, but you really had to read the manga or the watch the songs surrounding it in order to fully understand it as a whole, I would have given it a much better rating if it weren't for the fact it was leaning on other sources to get its points through and the ending was a bit rushed.

  • Out(er Science) of this world
    Mekakucity Actors is an extension of the Kagerou Project that's been around since 2011- and the launch of the popular Heat Haze Days music video back then made it a hit in Japan. After manga and LN adaptions there's been a lot of requests for an anime to be made. An anime based on a series of vocaloid songs that make an awesome story together? Don't be ridiculous! But here we are.

    Mekakucity ...

  • Great anime, although has some lazy animators
    The only downside I see about this anime is the fact that whenever anyone not important is on screen, they are colored gray, and have no faces/details/etc. But honestly it's a cool anime and I would recommend it to friends. I love the character design, although it is strikingly similar to their bakemonogatari and nisemonogatari series.. The anime is great though, check it out if you have time

  • A BIG DISAPOINTMENT I am sad.
    This show is one of my favorites. However, they hand you too much info too quickly. It makes so much sense by like episode 6 that they barf info back at you over and over like a cow. It's sad because they had to cater to those people who didn't understand. I mean the information that was uninterpretable.

    I liked the series where they were special for being special. No explanations. It would've ...
