    Second season downfall
    This review is more focused on the second season than the first. Let me start by saying the first season is beautifully done and so worth seeing. However, as of right now I can't say the same for the second season. The second season is lacking in character connection, deep emotional persuasions and the main character is not as likable from those in the first season. There is a huge difference ...

    Refreshing Style of anime
    not to sound like a hipster, but i was watching anime way before it became a popular thing among the internet. I'm 20 and have been an anime fan for as long as i can remember. (my uncle was a anime fan and i spent a lot of time over at his house watching his VHS collection of all the shows he had, witch was a lot). Having said that only 3 anime have ever left me this way. Five Leaves, ...

    Showa Genroko isn't bad!!
    Honestly I didn't know what to expect from this show I came in with low expectations and I couldn't have bin more wrong. This is a really great show so far and it has a really good story mixed with a very nice animation style. I can't wait to see more!
