Well. How much do you think I enjoyed watching Richard pining after his rapist? Nothing but a heavily romanticised rapist, and index of shoujo manga's serious toxicity. SO MUCH FOR BUCKINGHAM.

Finally watched the end of this, since I got a new CR free trial. Some lovely characters, a great FMA style mix of drama and comedy. Anya's childish viewpoint was perfect for such a series;...

Didn't even get through half an episode. 'Smartest-guy-in-the-room' toxic male fantasies should be shot on site, and series devoted to belittling women dropped on site

Seemed like a drama-worthy premise...this was a pretty, sometimes amusing show, but very clichéd and tedious, with nothing but one-dimensional characters. Also gender stereotypes. Desumi's sweet...

Ruka and Mami are misogynistic stereotypes essential to a 'Forgetting Sarah Marshal'-like male-centred romantic comedy. Where actions of males are always interpreted in the best possible light,...

The Japanese Prime Minister and Aramaki's colleague don't represent the US state; the US state does, as presented by 2045 in a manner that you've said nothing to refute, which entirely outweighs a...

Agreeing with Kanon's valid point, in part, rather than repeating. Didn't say original SAC was holy ground, only that Batou's design more effectively evoked a human being than the CGI models in SAC...

Cute girls with guns; even the 2020s can mess this one up so easily. Chisato's lively animation and fast-talking seiyuu are very good. Stoic 'kurokami-straight-long' girl has been done a bit much, so...

I can't see that Batou looks to be in his 70s, but he does look like a Ken doll in 2045, to add to his long-term castration complex. It's not bad CGI...but it's CGI. The more finely rendered, the...

'Happened to be male' is disingenuous. The last competent demon lord with the part-time job I recall was male; while Maoh was much better, it undermined the 'competent' heroine quite a lot. Competent...
