Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru

This has got to be one of the most morbid anime I have ever seen. Horror is one thing and dark stories is another, but this is just insane. It’s all about death, murder and rotting corpses ‘nd stuff. It’s hard on the eyes.

Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga UmatteiruI suppose the artwork is alright, which makes it even harder to watch since it’s pretty detailed. But do I really want to look at bones and rotting corpses for the next few months?

The story is beyond dark. It’s safe to assume that every episode is going to be about dead bodies, skeletons and god only knows what. I’m not really into that stuff personally, but horror and gore fans might get a real kick out of it.

Go ahead if you are truly a fan of this sort of thing. It’s really not my cup of tea since there’s hardly any action.

Plot Summary: Shōtarō Tatewaki is a normal high school student with a serious demeanor who likes to show off his girlfriend Sakurako Kujō. Sakurako is an extraordinarily beautiful woman in her mid-20s from a rich family who loves “beautiful bones.” The two live in the city of Asahikawa in Hokkaido, and they get involved in various incidents regarding bones.

Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note

I saw this anime short and I was immediately reminded of Bakuman. In one of the Bakuman arcs there was a project that the boys were working on called “Perfect Crime Party” I believe. This anime short resembles that a lot. I don’t like that.

Tantei Team KZ Jiken NoteThe artwork is somewhat acceptable for an anime short. I have seen a whole lot worse. No idea which studio(s) made it though.

The story is a problem for me. It just looks too much like one of Bakuman’s little side stories. I’m not entirely sure, but I believe one of the characters’ names might be similar or exactly the same as those in Bakuman.

Either way; I won’t be watching it. Not only do I hate rip-offs, this is simply far too childish for me to enjoy. I might recommend this to a much younger audience, sure, but not for teenagers or older.

Plot Summary: Aya Tachibana is a sixth-grader who frets and obsesses over friends, family, grades, and more. One day, she joins the “Tantei Team KZ” with four very idiosyncratic boys she met at cram school. There is the glib and attention-grabbing leader Kazuomi Wakatake, the mysterious “expert of personal relationships” Takakazu Kuroki, the smart and stoic math genius Kazunori Uesugi, and the sweet-hearted Kazuhiko Kozuka who is good at social matters and science. Aya finds her place among them as the “language expert.” “Tantei Team KZ” gets involved in modern-day cases, and even if they bicker from time to time, they collaborate by pooling each of their talents and skills to solve these cases.

This is one of the few shows that I will never understand. I just don’t understand it. I can’t fully appreciate the artwork and the story is something that escapes me every single time. I managed to watch the very first season but after that…

OwarimonogatariThe artwork is phenomenal. There is no doubt about the level of detail. It’s the real deal. However, I just can’t fully appreciate its style. I find it rather hard to watch and that results in me losing interest in it.

I’ve been told that these series all got a great story. However, the artwork kind of makes it harder for me to fully appreciate it. It escapes my understanding, I guess…

I simply cannot say that I don’t recommend it. I myself aren’t that interested in this, but a lot of others are. The sales, reviews and ratings are proof of that. I suggest you give this a fair try.

Plot Summary: During the month of October of his third year in high school, Koyomi Araragi is introduced to a transfer student named Ougi Oshino by his underclassman Kanbaru Suruga. Ougi tells Koyomi that she has something she wishes to consult with him. When she draws the map of Naoestu High School, she finds something peculiar. This discovery reveals a tale that wasn’t meant to be told, and this makes Koyomi’s high school life totally different. This is the story that brings to light “what” makes Koyomi Araragi. This is the story that reveals the “beginning” of everything.

Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo Returns 2

I dropped the first season after three episodes. It was so incredibly boring and childish that I couldn’t force myself to watch it any longer. This really just isn’t for me.

Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo Returns 2The artwork is what draws you in. I’ll admit that. It looks nice and perhaps sometimes a little bit childish, but overall it’s pretty nice.

For me it’s the story that does it. It’s filled with rather predictable and sometimes even childish crimes. The culprit is very obvious a lot of the time and I think that that’s unforgivable in a detective show.

I personally won’t recommend this. I won’t be following it and I certainly won’t give the second episode another try because I am not interested in being disappointed again.

Plot Summary: Hajime Kindaichi, Miyuki, and Kenmochi arrive Hong Kong to visit a grand opening of a new hotel and its magic show. What they don’t know yet is that Yōichi Takatō, Kindaichi’s long time nemesis, is pulling strings behind the curtain, and the trio once again get involved in a murder case that can be traced to a secret hidden for 18 years.

Animators all over the world must be shocked by this one. I cannot believe what I saw. I haven’t even heard of the studios that created this crap, much less about any of their works. This is just dreadful.

KagewaniThe artwork… I’m sorry, but I refuse to call this artwork. This is not art. This is just hideous, cheap and hard to watch. They say that it’s supposed to be mysterious and a little bit scary; it’s not. It’s dreadful and boring.

There is no point to whatever story this show contains. It’s boring as hell and certainly not worth spending five minutes a week on.

I suggest you look elsewhere. This really isn’t worth wasting your time on. Do something else with your five minutes. Go masturbate or something.

Plot Summary: Mysterious monsters called “UMA” suddenly appear in the present day and attack humans. The scientist Sōsuke Banba pursues the truth with the keyword “Kagewani,” a word that literally means “Shadow Crocodile.”
