Orius' Anime/Manga Review Hub

This shall be the thread where I consolidate all my past and future opinions on various anime and manga titles. I try to keep all reviews spoiler-free, so don’t be afraid to read them if you haven’t seen these titles yet. I usually post all my reviews on MyAnimeList, so for the sake of not cluttering up the forum, I’ll be posting their links here, and you can conveniently check out other people’s reviews on the same title as well through those MAL pages.

My rating system follows the MAL guidelines and is pretty straightforward. 10 is a masterpiece, while 1 is utterly horrible. Usually, my average score for a decent anime with few faults is a 7, my most common rating. Anything 6 and below, I’m not happy with the anime in many ways.

Without further ado, let’s proceed with the reviews!
