Not All Anime Are For Children

A lot of you have read my post, Rant: Anime Characters Do Not All Look the Same. This time, I have another rant: Not all anime are for children. Honestly, this is obvious but there are still some people out there who don’t get it.

I was one of those ten year olds that watched anime rated 16+. That’s why I think children can watch shows like Death Note and Attack on Titan. These three shows are actually intense. I could name more, but that would imply that I watched them. Hahaha.

Goblin Slayer

The first episode of Goblin Slayer was not appropriate for children, but the rest of the episodes were mild in comparison.

Happy Sugar Life

Happy Sugar Life looks cute, but the episode 1 turns dark at the end.


What was the point of this post? Clearly I don’t spend my limited free time socializing. Maybe you will watch these shows. I hope you’re not a child.

Fall 2018 Anime – What I’ve Watched

The Fall anime season is here! The first episode for most shows are out, and I’m continuing a couple of shows from the last season. I’ll probably watch a few more shows from this season.

Attack on Titan Season 3 (continuing) – episode 11

Episode 11 came out yesterday and it’s a great episode. The focus was on the backstory of Keith Sadies. I was surprised that he had this connection with Eren and his parents. I felt pretty neutral about Sadies in the first season but I like him now. This episode was a nice break from titan action.

Middle Manager Tonegawa (continuing) – episode 13

Things are getting really good because we are finally seeing some familiar players from Kaiji Season 1. Yes, it’s the Restricted Rock Paper Scissors game! They are keeping the comedic elements so it’s still fun to watch. I blogged about this show and you can read about it here.

Phoenix Wright Season 2 – episode 1

This was an early drop, and I explained my reasons for dropping this anime in my latest blog post. You can read that here.

Goblin Slayer – episode 1

The AniBlogger community kept talking about the show, so I had to watch it. It looks cute in the beginning, but it’s pretty dark. Fair warning: The show has heavy subject matter like rape and murder. I wouldn’t go as far as telling people who enjoyed it that they are terrible people.

The protagonist is so unlikable. After everything that happened to her group, she wants to go back to the goblin cave. Another thing she did irritated me greatly, but I don’t want to spoil too much. I might watch a couple more episodes of this, but I didn’t love it.

Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu. – episode 1

This is a yaoi series and I’ve actually read the manga. It’s not my favourite yaoi manga, but I still like it. I’m actually liking the anime more than the manga so far. There aren’t too many BL anime to begin with (in comparison to other anime genres and the wide selection of BL manga) so it’s good to have more BL anime series.

The Special was amazing! I reviewed this special episode and you can find that post here.

Plan to Watch

Ootsuki Spin-off

Even though I hated Ootsuki, I am excited to watch this because I’m a huge FKMT fan and am willing to watch anything related to Kaiji. I’ll probably review this in the future. I think it’s great that series such as Middle Manager Tonegawa and Ootsuki Spin-off have anime adaptations because FKMT characters rock and also because the Kaiji manga was published in 1996. When will Madhouse give us Kaiji season 3?


The two shows the AniBlogger community are talking about the most right now, in my opinion, are Goblin Slayer and the new Sword Art Online anime. It’s not cool to hate on SAO just for views. The “SAO sucks” thing is getting really old! I’m personally not a fan of SAO, so I’m not going to watch it. It’s as simple as that.
