The following is my review on Chobits, spoiler alert!

After watching Elfen Lied, I thought to myself, "why don't I watch something else that have girls with apparent horns?" and so I did. Although technically not a horn and more of what the show describe as an "ear," I went on with Chobits, a seemingly normal romance show about a man and his humanoid robot.
The good chunk of the beginning of the series was spent developing Chi - the robot/humanoid personal computer - along with other characters, and I appreciate that. This helps to smoothly fit in the connection you feel with the cast. Then it took a serious turn away from the romance arc with the recognition about problems that arises between human-robot relations. Then it was further explored, turning this series into a conflict between love of someone you quite literally raised to someone you like just because you have feelings for them.
But then, suddenly out of the blue - ignoring various odd traits Chi have shown randomly thoughout the show - the sci fi element kicks in and suddenly the seemingly innocent manager of the residence became some super genius and there are two seemingly evil-doers brooding on a rooftop, saying something about the danger Chi is. While it initially felt very out of place, the show did try its best to flush it down with the rest of the plot for the remainder of the show, although it still felt vaguely out of touch by the end.
The plot of this series largely surrounds a series of storybooks, something reminicent to a thriller anime I like, Monster, so for everytime the book is mentioned, I thought the series would take a plunge into a very dark turn, something that never really happened.
The comedy aspects was there and it helps among the serious moments as the story covers some considerably realistic problems, such as a student living on a limited money. There are a few touching moments, such as when Chi created the curry for Hideki.
As for characterization, I personally like how the show decides to present Hideki, a clueless farm boy who gradually learns more as he goes along and an overall good person. The feeling like the "obvious chosen one/main character" isn't that strong and he is very average, and it feel natural for him to stumble upon Chi instead of some "straight As, super smart, very good at coding, with strange setbacks for comedy" main character. As for the other characters, they are presented well and have their own personal problems, but it seems a little odd that all of the people Hideki befriends/have relations with have robot-related conflict.
Over all, the plot is good and the comedy is well placed, but the ending a strangly sci-fi for something predominantly a romance series. I will give it a 8/10 and recommend for anyone that want a mostly light-hearted romance flick.

The following is my review on Elfen Lied. Spoiler alert!

I was recently in the mood for some Yandere show, so I decided it was time for me to watch Elfen Lied. The synopsis of the story was simple: a girl with split personality between her clueless state and her killer persona within a setting reminiscent to a harem anime - that is, excluding the blood and gore.
Even without the reveal of all the girls present, one could suspect the harem element when they mentioned that their house has ten rooms and the obviously jealous-tsundere characterization of the protagonist's cousin.
The violence in this show is certainly well worth being called bloody, from blatant gore and explicit showing of viscera. On the other hand, it is questionable on why does a body explode into a bloody burst, but when limbs were sliced off, the blood was....lacking.
Despite some naming this series a "yandere," it lacks a love-obsession aspect associated with it, but rather, closer to yangire "suddenly violent" archetype.
The fanservice in this show is certainly present, but it wasn't as out of placed as Future Diary. And unlike Future Diary, there isn't a sex scene that seems rather forced.
The plot overall was alright and I appreciate the fact that they didn't spew exposition in the beginning and let the story fold out over time. The violence was implemented quite well and don't distract from the story too much. Characters are mostly likable, but the reoccurring theme of the grandfather clock was mostly moot until the end, where it feels sudden and out of place. The ending's cliffhanger was done quite well in my opinion.
Overall, I rate it a 7/10, a good watch if you want some gore along with a story and don't mind ambiguous endings.

The following is my review of both seasons of Assassination Classroom, Spoiler Alert!

When I first heard of Assassination Classroom, I honestly didn't give it much thought. After all, how serious can a series about a yellow tentacled monster teaching a classroom be? But when I watched the first episode, it changed my minds. Middle schoolers with gun and knives and with a subplot that is actually good life lessons? I can get into that. So I carried on watching, liking the students and hates the apparent antagonists. After two antagonists, you begin to realize that despite how much hate the show made you feel for one character - say, the Principle - they always turned out to be not half-bad in the end. Exceptions applies, however, such as that training sargent that beat up his students.
As a whole, the plot is great in both seasons, with valuable lessons learned almost every episode. The settings are great, but one sharp immersion breaker is the lessons learned and maturity of characters. I know that the school they are in are for prestigious kids and teaches advanced lessons, but I doubt middle schools teaches about the spacing of atomic lattice, something that I didn't even learn in high school. In the same topic, middle school. Despite the setting claims, the students are sometimes protrayed as far too mature for their age, letting you sometimes recall them as high schoolers.
Returning to the plot, by the end of the second season, you do feel the grief of Koro-sensei's death, but the episode after that does well to patch up the emotion. I especially liked the last bit where Nagisa showed off his abilities in front of a class of high school delinquents, which left me feeling exhilarated and almost wish there was a series with Nagisa as the teacher.
Overall, the series is great with only the aforementioned immersion breaker and predictablility as its downside. I will give it a 7/10 recommended to watch.

I have been thinking of this for a while so I decided to make a meme-comic about it. It is also a possibility on why Ben went to the Dark Side.

(No offense to Legends-lovers! The tales are still canon in our hearts!)

May the Fourth be with you!
On another news, on the first time I watched The Force Awakens, I noticed this about the character Bazine Netal's quote. It may be my love for mecha anime, but I heard her report to the First Order to indicate that she found the droid something along the lines of something, something, smething, "...a Gundam." Perhaps I'm not alone?
