Bluecheese's Elfen Lied Tv Review

Rated: 4

For this review, I hate how sound and art take up 50% of the weighting combined since it only gives me 2 chances to lower the grade. Also, there are things worth mentioning that aren't described above.

Perhaps the most commonly talked about thing with EL is the violence and nudity. I can sense the psychological impact of mature subjects. Some fans must have thought: "OoooooOO, this is so violent. It's got to be good." And it's not just violence, it also has a lot of nudity and other mature subjects. None of them struck me as a good attempt in drama or plot. They struck me as fan service. Nyu being an idiot not understanding the importance of clothing for example. Even scenes of Mayu's past seemed like an excuse to please pedophiles with child nudity.

Bluecheese's Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito Tv Review

Rated: 7

Yami Boushi is not a hard series to grade. From any objective basis, it isn't great. But it can easily be a secret/guilty pleasure for many, simply because of its yuri elements.

I think this series is a success in terms of acheiving its goal of showing you good looking girls. Yami Boushi certainly doesn't take itself seriously from my perspective. The story makes several biblical references but the story doesn't really touch on those.

It's also worth mentioning that the OP animation in conjunction with the song is one of the best anime openings I've ever seen. And I've seen well over 250 series. Most anime OP are just a random showcase of characters and scenes. But this one really syncs with the music and showcases the beauty.
