Nisekoi: Who has the best claim to Raku's Heart?

Japan News - 14 hours 33 min ago

Nisekoi is a series that was a chore for me to watch especially during the first season. Too many overreactions over misunderstandings that dragged each episode out to its obvious conclusion. There wasn't a massive amount of fan service per episode and the characters were charming but also bat shit idiotic especially Raku and Onodera. The second season confusingly called Nisekoi: was better but we are still no closer to finding Raku's true sweetheart even though he has his lock back. 
Fortunately I've watched enough Detective Conan to crack even the most mind-boggling of cases and taking the evidence from the first two seasons including OVA of the Nisekoi anime series, I'll be disclosing the truth to Raku's childhood sweetheart.

Annotated Anime: One Piece episode 702

Japan News - 18 hours 33 min ago

Doflamingo remains one of my favourite One Piece villains. Despite the shit I had to put up with in Dressrosa it is all worth it to see the good episodes. Doflamingo has one of the more interesting backstories of all the characters in One Piece and I love how you can see how it had directly affected his personality and actions.

First Impressions: Bikini Warriors

Japan News - 22 hours 33 min ago

I think we are all aware of the ridiculous concept of armour for females in a fantasy setting. As males level up they get to wear more extravagant armour while the ladies are rewarded with higher statistical armour but is represented as beach wear rather than fighting gear. It's a silly trope that is still used to this day. But can there be an interesting anime based off it?
