Gakusen Toshi Asterisk – First Impressions
Futuristic Academy Fighters (yes, I made that up now) seem to be quite a popular choice of genre these days, especially in shounen anime. This one is no different: new/transfer student entering an academy where everyone fights each other to determine who’s the strongest of them all. Main character shows potential to be very strong but we have yet to see his full power. While Gakusen Toshi Asterisk adds nothing new to the genre, it’s quite entertaining so far.

Goku Calls For Help
You’ll never guess who it is! Hope you get a good giggle out of it 😀
Danchigai – First Impressions
I’m mostly a sucker when it comes to comedies and slice-of-life anime because I enjoy the genre very much. Danchigai is that type of anime, though its episode length doesn’t allow for much to really happen.
Shimoneta – First Impressions
Imagine a world where the concept of dirty jokes is considered a crime in society. Imagine a world where the government tracks everything you do in order to prevent indecency. That is the world Shimoneta shows us and it does it in a very clever, yet humourous way.
Misheard Anime Lyrics
So recently a friend of mine shared this video with me and I felt that I had to share it with you. Hope you guys get a good giggle out of it like I did!
Aoharu x Kikanjuu – First Impressions
First rule of anime: don’t believe everything you see at first! Aoharu x Kikanjuu is no exception to this rule: did you think the main character was a guy? Sorry for you, but “he” is actually a girl. Wait, did that guy in the image above really shoot her? Nope, that was just a BB gun.
Okusama ga Seitokaichou! – First Impressions

Fight the Power: Assassination Classroom and Social Hierarchy
What would you do if you were offered $1 000 000 to kill your teacher? What if the government told you that killing your teacher would save the world? Would you do it? If you said yes to any of these questions then welcome to Class 3-E: home to the delinquents of Kunugigaoka Junior High School, one of the most prestigious schools in Japan. Assassination Classroom is more than just a comedy about a classroom trying to kill their alien teacher, it also explores and critiques social hierarchy, particularly in Japan.

Anime for the Non-Anime Watcher
Let’s be honest, not everyone can appreciate anime the same way others do. Some people either find it hard to understand or just plain weird (cue “I’ve seen enough hentai to know where this is going” meme). For those who are interested in trying out anime but are unsure what to watch, here is a list of anime that I would recommend to you, just to help you get started. Take note, however, that this is a subjective list based on anime that I’ve watched before. It was very difficult to decide which anime should appear on this list.
