A long, long time ago, there was a man named Timekeeper who was scrolling through Netflix with a bored, glazed look in his eyes. Through his wanderings, he stumbled upon a series called "Magi: the Labyrinth of Magic". It looked appealing enough, but he wasn't sure whether or not he was motivated enough to start a new anime series. He then darted his eyes towards his ever-increasing pile of bills, research papers, and calls from his mother wanting to chew him out over something trivial. It was then he decided that he would give the series a watch.

Drifters aka when Hellsing had a bastard baby with Fate Zero.
The story takes place in a standard Tolkien fantasy world in which unique historical figures are taken moments before their deaths, to fight alongside one another against a rival force under similar circumstances. If you have seen Hellsing and or Fate Zero, imagine that only with a touch more history and a lot more gore and poo.
Just recently I finished "Izetta The Last Witch". I have to say my initial take jumping in was a skewed one. Given the era and setting of this story taking place in a semi-modern alternate universe of World War II I was expecting to be treading upon eggshells. The fact of how actual real world events transpired during WWII this really can make things uncomfortable. Somehow by namesake alone I was intrigued enough to watch this series. Now lets jump into the review shall we.
Hello everybody, i have watched half of the fairy tail anime and i have to say without a doubt that it is one of the most incredible anime's that i have ever watched. Fairy Tail has so many mixed emotions packed within it especially comedy, i cannot tell you guys how many times i have laughed continuously to the anime character Natsu Dragneel and many many more characters from good to evil. no character is unnecessary and don't forget the action omg. but there have been so many turning points in the anime that you never know what is gonna happen one second to the next.
I quite honestly don't recall how I even came upon this series. I wasn't recommended that I watch it by another forumgoer, I didn't see it on my suggestions on my MAL page, and I didn't watch a lick of it on YouTube. One thing I do know is this: I'm certainly glad I came upon it. Because not only is Shiki one of my favorite anime series of all time, but it's probably my favorite of all time when it comes to the horror genre.
A couple of days ago I watched this anime short/music video. Typically I'd ignore and skip over such things without giving them a chance. Luckily for me a dear friend persuaded me into watching Shelter. He hyped it up so much... that by the end of the day I just caved in. To be blunt I wasn't expecting much at all. Upon completion however, I was swept off my feet by how much it struck an emotional chord within me in just a short span of 6 minutes.
Before I begin this review, I would like to say this: if you're expecting this to be lighthearted and full of funnies like Is This a Zombie? (Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?), please do yourself a favor and turn around. This anime does have a few joking moments, but very little. Corpse Party: Tortured Souls is not a show for those who cannot handle blood and gore. It isn't trying to fool you into thinking it's a slapstick comedy show; it is what it is: a horror series. So, with that, let's get onto the actual review.
Good lord. I'll be totally honest here, but this was probably the most fun I've ever had going blind into a series since Madoka Magica. And that's saying A LOT coming from me. However, unlike Madoka Magica, the "you didn't see that coming" hardball that hits you right in the face came a fair bit earlier in this series. Aside from an animated GIF that was shared with me on Facebook, I knew absolutely nothing when I decided to pick this series up. And my God, I'm glad I did. Before I begin this review, I am going to say that this review will have some spoilers.
