Anime is becoming more mainstream, and that's great. But some people still view it all as the same stuff, and that is weird to me because you wouldn't put Two and a Half Men and Game of Thrones in the same basket. So, why do it with One Punch Man and Dimension W? Here, I try to review anime through the lens of my sister, someone who has never watched anime, and try to answer the question: should my sister watch this anime?

So, if you disagree with my reviews, that's fine. You probably already like anime (you're on this site), and some of my criticism will be things that you and I are willing to look over because we are committed to the medium (overlooking poor animation in favor of a good story, etc). It's the same way people go to see Transformers movies. They aren't masterpieces, but, to some, they have a je ne sais quoi.

If you want to get someone into anime, but don't trust your own recommendations (or don't want that responsibility), feel free to use me as your bulwark from judgemental eyes.

I don't have any rhyme or reason to the shows I pick, usually. It's normally just what I am watching/finishing. If you have some things you think I should check out for my sister, or just want to talk shit, send mail to:
