My name is Jake.

Here I review various anime/manga/japanese art.

In the interest of not having what is essentially a blank page, I shall list out some animes and rank them in a somewhat arbitrary manner. Maybe one day I will review them.

'Plan' to watch It is on the list but not a 'set in stone' thing.
Currently Watching! Yeah I am currently watching these. I may finish these or I may not.
Reconsidering (eventually) This list will likely never get long.
I don't know where to rank What to say about it? What can one derive from it? I don't know!
Favorites Favorites! Things I actually watch often!
Decent Things that I have watched and maybe may watch again. Maybe.
Stopped watching Not saying that these are bad but I've stopped watching. Still 'plan' to finish.
It's okay Have watched but would not necessarily would recommend to anyone.
It's boring Dropped and won't pick up. *Yawns*
Hate Things that I have watched and DEFINITELY never will watch again.
Awful These have failed the Jake's-good-anime-test (to be created).

Misa is also a best girl

On the list that I 'plan' to watch one day.[top]

Log Horizon {4/50}. Ok, I have watched Log Horizon before and I really liked it. But somehow I neglected to add it to this page! From memory: I dislike how they spent seven episodes on how she found her femininity. It is important and all but not seven episodes worth.
Nekogami Yaoyorozu {2/12}. It seems somewhat enjoyable.
Narutaru {0/13}
Gift enternal rainbow {0/12}
Boogiepop-Phantom {6/12}. Spoopy.
Kuromajo-san ga Tooru!! {1/60}
Nadesico {1/26}

I am reconsidering these[top]

This list exists because someone has convinced me (or I have convinced myself) that I should reconsider the anime. Doesn't necessarily mean I will halt everything I am doing just to watch it however ;P

Nothing here

I don't know where to rank these.[top]

I can't figure out how to rank them (even arbitrarily). The only thing I can really say about them is that I think about them often.

Serial Experiments Lain

Favorites; and I have watched it at least more than once or I really really like it.[top]

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun I really liked this anime. Really really really really really liked it. I think I like it more than Konosuba. Something is wrong with this world. A 'love' romance but funny. The ending song is cute. If you're learning Japanese, my ears told me that this Japanese is easy to understand (though I have no working knowledge of Japanese).
Konosuba Be sure to find a translation team that don't view themselves as the highest order of comedy.
Dantalain no Shoka I remember wanting to watch the second season of it only to find the first was made in 2008 and the current year at that time was at least +8.
Death Note One of the first 'big brained' anime I've watched. I'll write a review on this 'soon(tm)'.
Saga of Tanya the Evil Being 'X'. He plagues us all doesn't he, in some ways? The greatest form of revenge is to defeat him and his silly plans.
Berserk (2D)
One Punch Man I don't really like the parts where the anime focuses on other people, if I wanted to watch 50-punches-and-kicks-and-also-maybe-a-scheme man I would've watched Naruto.
Cowboy Bebop "Oh the Western Likes Cowboy Bebop so typical". Yes, it is good - but you won't catch me raving about it.
Minami-ke Slice of life
Birdy the Mighty: Decode
Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu
Dragon Ball (No 'Z')
Haibane Renmei
BNA - Brand New Anime This is meant to be listened to in English dub because it was written in English. You can tell by the lip syncing.
Gakkou no Kaidan: Kubinashi Rider!! Shi no Noroi English dub only!!
Magical Girl Pretty Sammy TV A nice anime about friendship and love. It has a charm to it that is hard for me to describe. Sasami's pa is very gaudy and very mysterious. (Yes, I watched all 26 episodes in 3 days)
Magic Knight Rayearth Some gorls get kidnapped and now they have to save the planet to go home. This is a phenomenal anime - a very good one, at least the first season. The second season... hmm it is serviceable. Perhaps I will write a review on it.
Little Witch Academia "A believing heart is your magic!"
Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki
Tenchi Muyo! GXP Weird, somewhat lewd show, but extremely enjoyable.
Nichijou This is quite charming.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (Pre-Victory) Extremely good. At least this part is.
Gunsmith Cats My only regret that it is not longer.

Decent but I have only watched it once but will probably watch it again if I ever have free time.[top]

RWBY A 3d animation but enjoyable. Written in English.
The Twelve Kingdoms This anime features a TON of character growth in what I would have to say in the most realistic manner I have seen in an anime. It is not really super action packed and about 13 of the 45 episodes is back story for a character who doesn't matter... because the studio clearly thought they would have more than 45 episodes. That said, I enjoyed the arc and how they pick 'the one'. Not a required watch but I will think about it often. The Rat is the best character.
Berserk (3D) Formally 'awful.' The audio mixing is not very good: sometimes I turn it down because it is too loud then I turn it up because it is too quiet.... then I turn it down because it gets loud. This anime becomes a LOT better after the first 4 episodes. It is hard to admit it but it is Berserk. It FEELS like Berserk. I dislike the interweaving of 2D and 3D. I actually care for some most of the characters in this anime which surprises me. Also; heed my warning: SKIP THE OPENING because it has spoilers which is a violation of Jake's anime laws number 6.
No Game No Life Zero Movie. Hits me right in the feels man. (technically a sequel to the anime series but you can watch it in whatever order)
No Game No Life It is a shame this anime is only 12 episodes. I wish it was longer. There are a lot of 'blank' spaces that can only be answered by reading the manga/light novel.
Azumanha Daioh Seems to be a slice of life which is perfectly fine; a welcome break from the stress of real life. You could watch any episode without any regards to the order and you would have a good time. Such is the nature of slice of lifes I suppose.
Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!
Spice and Wolf S1 The first season is pretty good. It is worth watching, at least. The Manga however is the best so far. I really liked that over the anime.
Jojo I just write 'Jojo', most are good although quite violent and over the top, except maybe the first season which is alright for what it is.
Himouto-Umaru-Chan "She's literally me!!!" Except she actually does well in school.
Sailor Moon Actually quite good for a "girl's anime".
Made in Abyss S1 This anime is brutal. I would not let my children watch it.
Tenchi Universe The actual anime is ... in the OVA (Muyo) the characters have more 'soul', which I enjoy greatly.
Key The Metal Idol OVA
Record of Lodoss War Chronicles
Girls und Panzer A lot of internet weirdos post images from this anime, but if you get past it, it is quite nice.
Paprika Weird ass anime movie.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (Post-Victory) Not as good as 'Pre-Victory' phase. The message these kinds of anime have for some reason speak directly to my 'soul'.
Powerpuff Girls Z Wan!
Redline Vroom vroom

Stopped watching currently, but 'plan' to pick it up later.[top]

Sakura-Sou {4(?)/24}. I dislike unnecessary drama and emotional turmoil. I know they have their place but most of the 'harm' that MC experiences (so far) is self inflicted. I hope they tone it down soon. Too much bloom.
Maria†Holic {4/12}. >be me. >know i won't like anime. >watch it anyway. >"I can't believe I don't like this! How could this be happening to me!"
Rozen Maiden {15/24}. (formerly reconsidering) People in #sqt keep talking about it and mentioning characters by name and I don't remember a single thing about it so now I feel left out. The opening is an absolute banger though. I stopped watching around the same time I stopped watching last time. Shinku is best doll, however. Anyone who disagrees with me is obviously wrong.
K-On! {2/14}. I am not very impressed by it.

It's okay and I have watched every episode (at least within the 1st season), but unless I get an urge for it I won't watch it again.[top]

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time Anime movie. It has 'feels' but I successfully resisted them.
Maoyuu Maou Yuusha I get annoyed at how the main character is literally a hero but he is scared of his wife.
Pandora Hearts The plot of this show is clearly written on the fly. I don't even know if there is a second season.
Hayate no Gotoku!
Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion
Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou
Weiss Survive Literally an advertisment for a card game
Fullmetal Alchemist
Assassination Classroom I like the gimp suit at the end of the second season.
Black Butler
Overlord They rushed out season two and three so this is why you see SHITTY cgi and a lot of memes regarding it.
Kill La Kill (Post-Nue)
Blue Exorcist
Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai
Prison School Are you a horny teenager? Yes? This is the anime for you!
Tokyo Ghoul A friend says that she hates this anime because everyone in it is boring. I am not sure that I agree totally.

Watashi Ga Motete Dousunda
Infinite Dendrogram This could've been great. The author really dropped the ball.
Vampire Knight
So I'm a Spider, So What? What to say about this one... Beginning was great then it turns into Overlord tier CGI. The fighting scenes at the end are so shit. The plot is... Interesting. Of course, the viewer has no idea what is happening until they are told, not because it is high IQ but because it comes out of almost nowhere. I don't understand why a character does something but then changes her mind; why did she fight in the first place? I am confused.
Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They? I like the bunny. I am going to be honest, this anime is quite dull. Maybe the manga makes them seem better but for the most part this anime is just... hmm too fast for my liking and I don't really care about any of the characters. The main male character... (whatever his name was) is just a dull 'cocky' personality. That being said, I am curious about the music he listens to 24/7 because he NEVER takes off the headphones.
Spice and Wolf S2 God I hate drama so much. "I will leave you!" pretty much sums up about four episodes then "I will leave you ... Again!" and this pretty much sums up about the next four episodes. The manga did not have these parts at all so I am a little confused. I realize that life cannot be just sunshine and rainbows, but eough... I may get mad at people but I wouldn't sign a ... Well I don't wanna spoil but man, that makes no sense - even if I wanted to punish someone, that is going over the line. Maybe the Light Novel actually does do this kind of stuff, I don't know. I will give it a shot though. It is 100% okay to skip the second season of Spice and Wolf.
Moribito Guardian of the Spirit Quite dull. In my childhood I recalled watching a few episodes of this and spent more than a little time searching for it. Now, after all theses years, it is clear my memory made it look better than it really was.

Stop watching mid-way, probably because I had things to do and the story couldn't keep me.[top]
