.Hack//Sign is one of those older anime that many have a love or a meh relationship with. The general theme of being stuck in a game was still rather new when it first aired in 2002. Some aspects of the story are clear and easy to follow, while others, are confusing if you do not pay attention.
If a series only has 1 000 'legal' views but 150 000 fans and you are one of those fans who did not watch it legally and really, really want that next season, you will likely not get it. Why?
B Gata H Kei, aka Yamada's First Time is one of those anime that I feel bad that I actually enjoyed watching. Despite what the anime is about, it is surprisingly innocent. It was definitely made with a more mature - adults - audience in mind, whether the age restriction agrees or not. This time, the ecchi aspect of an anime is not just there as fan service but as an actual plot device. I'm shocked too.
Hellsing is a household name when it comes to anime featuring vampires. Not a single list about anime vampires will miss the opportunity to feature it and with good reason. I originally reviewed Hellsing on my blog back in 2016 when I had not yet settled in on a style or format. Thus, I decided to relook it and add some of the details that were missing and bulk up my initial 100 word review.
Thirteen years ago I watched the journey of Shugo and Rena during .Hack//Legend of the Twilight on Animax. There were certain scenes that just stuck with me through the years and thought it was time for a rewatch.
