TL;DR Review

Angel Beats! Hell’s Kitchen is another stand-alone OVA. Similar to the first OVA, you’ll get more enjoyment out of this if you are already familiar with the SSS’s members personality and traits.

The animation and music are consistent with the TV show.

I would only recommend this anime to a fan of Angel Beats! The anime contains crude humor, a moderate amount of graphic violence, and some suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.

Gunbuster

Gunbuster (1988) OVAs Review

Gunbuster, known in Japan as Aim for the Top! (トップをねらえ! Toppu o Nerae!), is a Japanese OVA anime series produced by Gainax released from 1988 to 1989.

In the very near future, a race of huge, insect-like aliens is discovered traveling the galaxy. These aliens seem dedicated to the eradication of the human species as it takes its first steps away from the solar system, and they are getting closer and closer to Earth. Humanity has responded by developing spacegoing battleships and giant fighting robots. These robots are piloted by the best and brightest of Earth’s youth, picked from training schools around the world. The story begins in the year 2023, not long after the first battles with the aliens, and centers on young Takaya Noriko.

Isekai Slime

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 1 Review

Living alone and never having had a girlfriend, 37-year-old Satoru Mikami is dissatisfied with how his life has turned out. But after dying at the hands of a robber, he awakens to a fresh start in a new world…as a slime monster.

ReLIFE Season 1 Review

The story revolves around 27-year-old Arata Kaizaki who has been unemployed for several years after quitting his job of 3-months, claiming that it is because it “does not fit his highest potential”. As a result of this action, he finds it difficult to gain a full-time job at another company and instead he works as a part-timer at a mini market. One day, a mysterious man named Ryō Yoake offers him a job opportunity, but first, he needs to become a tester for ReLife: a scientific experiment to make him appear 10 years younger and send him back to high school as a student. The experiment is supposed to provide a chance to experience youth once again and, in the process, fix whatever is wrong with the subject’s life.

"I... don't know why I'm alive. I have no reason to live. I have no interest in others. Living without concern for others... That's the way to live. Working a job that earns me just enough to eat... A life like that was enough..."
Yuri Nakamura
"I put a propulsion engine under your seat just in case you messed up."

"One person needed the courage to face the past. Another person needed the effort to make a dream come true. Yet another person needed time and friends. What about you?"
Ooyama
"Oh man, my heart is pounding. I'm eating snacks in the middle of class! I ate it! I totally ate it! Boldly eating snacks in the middle of class! I'm being so reckless!"

"Watching TV or playing games alone is more fun. Playing along with your friends' hobbies... Laughing at their jokes when they're not funny... All that does is tire me out."
Yuri Nakamura
"We have no choice but to accept the one and only life we're given, no matter how cruel and heartless it might be."
Yuzuru Otonashi
"My life after losing her... Is it over as well? The days I spent satisfied with the happiness I never noticed... Those times had passed away. For me... There's nothing left at all."
