    Meticulously animated and thematically engrossing, Akira is a complex, riveting and relentless sci-fi epic that rightfully earned its legacy as a landmark in animation.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'Psycho-Pass: The Movie'

    5 months ago

    Psycho-Pass: The Movie is a solid return to form for the Psycho-Pass franchise with its thoughtful writing and rich world-building, even if it ultimately doesn't shake up the central narrative in a noticeable way.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'Psycho-Pass 2'

    6 months ago

    Psycho-Pass 2 is not without its moments of brilliance, but a condensed, undercooked story and horrid characterization for the main characters make this season a pale shadow of its acclaimed predecessor, with very little value on its own.

    7 months ago

    Attack on Titan S3 gloriously delivers on all fronts, with an intriguing story that plays itself out fantastically and never forgets its characters' humanity, and a vivid presentation of frenetic action and somber beauty that puts most of its peers to shame.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online'

    7 months ago

    Fun and charming, SAO Alternative: Gun Gale Online is an addicting spin-off of the decisive Sword Art Online series with an engaging—if simple—story, entertaining protagonists and long-desired world-building for a neglected setting.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'SSSS.Gridman'

    8 months ago

    Though it starts and ends on a somewhat questionable note, SSSS.Gridman has enough charm and wit to make itself a worthwhile watch, carefully balancing between campy action and touching character drama.

    9 months ago

    Armed with a sharp script that explores its characters' moral boundaries and slick animation by Production I.G., Psycho-Pass is a stylish and intelligent crime thriller like nothing else.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime'

    10 months ago

    Bright, quirky and undeniably charming, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is an addicting and rewarding series that never fails to deliver on its fun characters and meticulous world-building, even if its story is nothing special.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'Kaguya-Sama: Love is War'

    11 months ago

    Rather than just using tired old character tropes, Kaguya-Sama wraps them up in a fun, silly premise before adding creative animation and quirky, affable personalities to deliver an effective and satisfying comedy.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'The Promised Neverland'

    9 months ago

    Slick, absorbing and intelligent, The Promised Neverland is an excellent thriller boasting an eerie atmosphere and an addicting story filled with multi-layered characters, and it rightfully reigns as the best horror anime in a very long while.

    12 months ago

    Ambitious and passionate to a tragic fault, Hand Shakers is the unfortunate end result of an experimental series brought down by its lackluster story and disastrous presentation.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'Sword Art Online II'

    13 months ago

    13 months ago

    A polarizing title with as many fans as detractors, Sword Art Online is powered by stunning visuals and an immersive setting, but bland leads, subpar writing and rushed pacing drag the series down to mediocrity.

    10 months ago

    Fun, hyperactive and boasting eye-popping animation, Little Witch Academia may not tell the smartest story around, but its endless supply of imagination, sense of adventure and attaching characters are almost peerless in the medium.

    16 months ago

    Dead Apple brings together the characters of Bungo Stray Dogs for an action-packed adventure filled with thrills and great character dynamics between its leads, but its narrative ends up being too complex and ambitious for its own good.

    Fate/Stay Night is a fascinating series held back by numerous directional and production-related faults, but thanks to its unique and ambitious concept and gorgeous score, it maintains itself as a great introduction into the 'Fate' franchise.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'My Hero Academia S3'

    13 months ago

    Three seasons in and My Hero Academia remains one of the most engaging and entertaining shounen anime in recent years, and not even its slow beginning can deter from the third season's intense story arcs and characters.

    Bold and unashamed of its vibrant violence and sexuality, Devilman Crybaby is not for everyone, but those who will choose to check it out will experience a surprisingly complex and thoughtful work with wild aesthetics and merciless execution.

    Re:Zero is an intriguing and captivating series that utilizes its time altering element to a great effect, though its main narrative definitely needs some clarity and direction if it wants to be more than mere entertainment.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'Nekomonogatari: Black'

    18 months ago

    It has some minor issues, but Nekomonogatari is a wonderfully-written prequel to the Monogatari series that brings together the brisk pacing of Bakemonogatari and the top-notch production values of Nisemonogatari.

  • Reaper's Reviews: 'Nisemonogatari'

    Reaper's Reviews: 'Nisemonogatari'

    20 months ago

    Nisemonogatari gathers the lovable characters, witty script and vibrant visuals Bakemonogatari was known for, alongside several new and welcome additions, but it's undeniable that this season is not quite as brilliant as its predecessor was.

  • Reaper's Reviews: 'Bakemonogatari'

    Reaper's Reviews: 'Bakemonogatari'

    20 months ago

    It may not be the most straight-forward series, but Bakemonogatari excels at unique, colorful visuals and compelling characters, alongside one of the best scripts executed in the medium that cements it as a high-caliber work.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'KonoSuba S2'

    21 months ago

    With its second season, KonoSuba doesn't shake up its formula much, but thanks to more consistent comedic moments and the usual chemistry of its leads, it provides a hilariously entertaining second round.

  • Reaper's Reviews: 'KonoSuba'

    Reaper's Reviews: 'KonoSuba'

    21 months ago

    While it lacks a hefty budget and is disappointingly short, KonoSuba is a gleefully silly yet endearing parody on Isekai anime with its lively characters and hilarious scenarios.

    Reaper's Reviews: 'Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress'

    22 months ago

    Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress starts off promising enough and is aided by top-notch production values, but its characters are hollowed and its plot quickly devolves into a messy, compressed and uninspired story.
