A sweet and wholesome Slice of Life that takes you through the joys of discovering cooking, and learning to do so for those you love and care about.
An interesting, mysterious story that while gorgeously animated, feels more like a stand-out episode of a Sci-Fi TV series than a standalone movie.
About as tropey and shallow as you'd expect from a short promotional anime for a mobile platform dating sim that never even got finished or released. Main girl is cute though?
A Classic D&D-style Adventure with the Goblin Slayer crew. Doesn't particularly add much to the series but brings in a new character and better animation.
What makes Goblin Slayer so special is how faithfully it recreates the Tabletop RPG experience. For me it brought to life what I always wanted D&D to be. Without that context, it can come off as low-effort.
A visceral love letter to Dungeons & Dragons, high fantasy, and tabletop RPGs that highlights the ugliness and toll such a world would take on its characters.
If you, like me, finished the main series thinking "Well, I'm not really sure what happened, but there's another movie to wrap up those loose ends" then this won't be too satisfying. While some questions are answered, it creates more than those it answers. It does have one of the greatest fight scenes I've seen in animation.
Evangelion is what made Mecha a great genre, filled with existential psychological enigmas and religious imagery. It is easily one of the most influential anime ever to have been created.
Every anime sin is committed here in a show that feels like it was Frankensteined together out of everything kids in the early 2000s said they liked about anime.
