1 Watta's Anime/Manga Review Thread on Sun Jul 27, 2014 5:25 pm

So I've watched a decent amount of anime so far in my life, and I feel as if I should make this thread. The reason why I didn't do this in the everything anime/manga thread itself is because I am going to be using a template for each review and keeping this organized.

Here's the template. Please use this if you would like to write a review.

Name:
Format [Anime/Manga]:
Year Released:

Grading Factors:----

1. Plot                                               - _/5
2. Character Development                     - _/5
3. Voice Acting [state language]            - _/5
4. Animation Quality                             - _/5
5. Scenery/Background Quality               - _/5
6. Overall Originality                             - _/5
7. Interest/Fun Level                            - _/5
8. BS Factor*                                      - _/5

10. Overall Enjoyed***                           - _/5
Total: _/50


Summary:
Give a decent sized summary here going over some/most of the grading points and end it with your personal recommendation and/or thoughts about what you are reviewing.

Total: _/50

*** Point Descriptions***:
*BS Factor: This is how much "crap" each episode contains. Does each episode give ample progress, or does it like when Goku fought Freeza on Dying Namek for like 11 episodes? The more shit = the lower the grade

**Ending: How well you think the anime series/season ended.

***Overall Enjoyed: how much YOU enjoyed it and found as an interest. This is fully up to the reviewer's opinion.

This thread is for everyone who wants to give it a go. Include screenshots even, if you want to.

Total: 44.5/50


Summary:

Plot: The plot of Steins;Gate starts of REALLY slowly and it was a tad bit dull IMO. However, as the characters are introduced in the first episodes, you begin to feel the pace come to balance. However, the pace seriously picks up insanely around episode 10; in a good way, don't worry. The series goes from a slow start to a quick pace and then a steady decline with some bumps here and there. Being originated from a top-seller visual novel, the anime was written very well and by the last episode it be comes clear that this was very well thought out.

Character Development: Though not all the characters develop throughout the anime, the major ones go through a very well paced progression. What makes this anime unique and so interesting is how the major characters are unique yet endearing. They have their weird moments, but you will be able to see a good change in them by the last episode.


Other Stuff To Mention: I watched this in Jap dub so the voice acting was very top notch. I especially like the male and female protagonists' voices, they suited them perfectly. BS factor was annoying in the first fifth of the anime, but it wasn't a factor after the pace picked up. It wasn't really that original in terms of a time-traveling theme, but the way everything was explained made it very interesting to watch. It was a bit confusing at first, however, I can say that it's a sci-fi time traveling anime pulled off correctly. Ending was very satisfactory, the last few episodes were epic.

I recommend this to anyone who has free time and a calm mind to watch this anime. Don't stop after a few episodes, but watch the entire way through since you need to get the whole experience to enjoy it the way it should be.

Total: 44.5/50

10. Overall Enjoyed***                           - 5/5
Total: 44.5/50


Summary:

Plot: The plot is actually pretty damn amazing. It's a story of 2 brothers who are the spawn of Satan himself. A priest took them in and raised them after their mother died (Not telling you how). When they get older, Yukio (younger brother) Goes to an Exorcist school and Rin (older brother) Figures out that he has Demonic Powers and His brother doesn't. Then HE goes to the Academy with his brother and claims that he wants to Kill Satan himself.....Yet they don't know that he's the spawn of him. Sounds like a badass Story in my opinion.

Character Development: The characters actually change a lot and get along with each other well. The Students all have their Special Abilities (Well Most of them). Also My Favorite Char besides Rin is Mr. Tsubaki. Every time he gets a call from "miss kitty", it's "Class Dismissed, I'M BOUT TO GET SOME SEX (AAAAAYY).

Other Stuff: The battles are Badass, the animations of shit is fuckin' AWESOME. Also I think that the English Dub is Pretty great. (Favorite Line: "That's what I'd want you to think, dumbass." ~Rin Okumura) For anyone who likes anime that has to do with Religion, or even nothing to do with religion, WATCH THIS SHIT, NIGGA :D

Total: 44.5/50
