Elfen Lied (Spoiler Free Review)

So the other day I ended up watching Elfen Lied over the span of one day.
I just had nothing else going on at the time.

So here’s my review of it.

Spoiler free, because I just can’t bring myself to spoil anime unless it’s a sequel or I’ve covered it before on the blog.

Anime Studio Challenge: A-Craft’s Ousama Game The Animation (Spoiler-free Review)

Continuing on with the A studios / producers, we’ve got A-Craft, and their only listed work – Ousama Game The Animation. At first glance, you may notice the 5.01 rating and think “oh no”, but… well…

I’ve gotten through all 12 episodes of the anime in one piece, meaning it can’t be that bad right? Right.

Once again, this will be a primarily spoiler-free review, as I won’t name names or delve into the plot itself. However, I HAVE to talk about the tone, pace, and things like this if I’m to sort this anime out properly. In addition, if it’s mentioned in the anime’s synopsis, I’m considering it fair game here.

So no plot details spoiled, but some aspects will be spoiled…

Anime Studio Challange: A-1 Pictures’… Eromanga-sensei! (Spoiler-free Review)

So we’ve come across what appears to be a pretty big anime studio… A-1 Pictures. Have any of you heard of this one?

Anyways, after looking through so many options, I decided to watch what I imagine is A-1 Pictures’ magnum opus: Eromanga-sensei! If any anime will give me an idea of what this studio is about, it’s Eromanga-sensei, right?

I figured that was the case.

Alright, here we go folks.
The defining anime of A-1 Pictures… are you ready?

Spoiler free, of course.
I just can’t bring myself to spoil content in my reviews anymore.

Anime Studio Challenge: 8bit's Rewrite (Review)

Funny story, I was actually planning on re-watching Rewrite, and then I didn’t have to thanks to this anime studio challenge.

And.. that’s the story.

So the studio / producer this time is 8bit, who actually has worked on plenty of other anime such as Infinite Stratos, that slime anime, The Fruit of Grisaia + sequel and more.

Anyways, from what I’m seeing, Rewrite looks like 8bit’s best work.

Anime Studio Challenge: 3xCube's Jitsu wa Watashi wa (Actually, I Am…) (Review)

Alright, another anime studio challenge review.
This time, it’s 3xCube’s Jitsu wa Watashi Wa.

There were only two choices here, so it was basically either a supernatural school harem, or an adventure romance. And I went with the school harem, of course! In reality I was just in the mood for some comedy.

In the spirit of transparency I will disclose that I did skip the studio / producer 33 Collective, whose only work was a 40 episode children’s show. I hadn’t originally factored kids shows into the rules, but I’ll probably end up skipping those too if they are the only option. We’ll see though on a case-by-case basis…

Spoiler-free as usual.

Anime Studio Challenge: 2:10 Animation's Wo Shi Jiang Xiaobai (+ OVA) (Review)

The next producer / studio on the list is an actual studio – 2:10 Animation.
And if you couldn’t tell from the name of the anime, it’s a Chinese studio!

The anime is called Wo Shi Jiang Xiaobai.
For some reason, on MAL the English translation of this is “I’m Joybo”.

I’ve got a few words regarding that later though.
So let’s get into it.

Spoiler-free as usual.
