A ridiculous, intense, sexy, and hilarious ride that simultaneously doesn't take itself seriously, yet is over-the-top serious.
Eizouken is a funny, passionate, beautiful love letter to animation and the entire process behind making it. Truly a standout piece among anime and TV shows as a whole.
This is the best anime movie from a TV series that I've seen. KyoAni's love for their craft is strongly felt here in a beautiful and emotional piece. All the good of Haruhi improved while trimming all eye-roll moments.
Haruhi has its own fun thing going on. It doesn't "feel" like really any other anime, and that's part of what has made it a mainstay of anime history. That, and a very notorious arc. I really enjoyed this one.
Charlotte feels a lot like Angel Beats after the caffeine rush wears off. The lows aren't as low, but the highs aren't as high. Overall a more palatable experience with emotional moments, but still suffers from similar shortcomings.
A family-friendly Disney/Ghibli vibe that's fun enough, though definitely has "for kids" goofiness in it, but goes a bit deeper emotionally than typical non-Pixar family movies.
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?
With gorgeous enhanced visuals and artistic detail, Tamako Love Story dives a bit deeper into the human relationships presented in the series with a slightly more serious tone.
There’s an optimism and a powerful love in Tamako Market that shows things not entirely as they are, but how we want them to be. For such a year as this, it’s important to remember that you, yourself, are a large part of what “The World” is to someone, if not many. As such, you are and can be such a powerful force for good, brightening and coloring your own and their life.
