    "When I was younger, I have always wanted to become a pirate because hell, Luffy is so amazing!! I spend like 2-3hours catching up on the episodes I missed after doing my homework and it is such a good source of laughter. I would definitely recommend this to my friends who love constant adventure--it is a long series so brace yourself for all the tears, sadness, laughter, and other emotions to come :D"

    "I thought I'd rather stick to reading the manga but well, I decided to give the anime series a shot. Characters are interesting enough. Naruto and his seemingly endless quest of becoming the Hokage of Konoha is just one part of whole anime. I admire Sakura the most because she selflessly wants to become stronger for her loved ones!!"

    "Y'all, I am so tempted to tell you the biggest plot twist of this anime just like what my brother did to me!!! but I would rather leave it to you as you watch it. I don't normally pay attention to the storyline itself but man, the survival story is very engaging!! So engaging that I actually dreamed of this a few times!! LOOL Animation graphics are superb too. Shingeki no Kyojin is simply the best!!"

    "Is it weird that I really like the villains in this anime?? IDK? I see them all as a Final Boss also because of their voice. Spekaing of voice, I think Saitama's voice is really bringing the character into life and his voice fits his personality. Whenever I see a bald dude in the street I always remember Saitama. LOL JK"

    "Goku and Gohan are timeless! I have been following this anime even before the release of Dragon Ball Z. The first Dragon Ball anime already caught my interest. I have been binge-watching the past few days on kissanime and so far, I just can't get enough of it. Vegeta, Piccolo, and Truniks are among my favorites. It is one of the classic shounen anime!!"

    "Graphics are impressive. Although i think Brotherhood's pacing is a little fast compared to the original manga but the plot is still adherent. It was a little fast that i think half a volume of the manga is compressed within a few eps. Anyway, the intriguing factor stays. "

    "For me Death Note stands out among all the shounen anime because it has a very compelling story to tell. The famous and notorious notebook used by L to kill the people he could and would imagine is also interesting. This some gothic theme for me as the anime is dominated by dark colors. Suspense anime it is."
