Descendants of an apocalypse by monsters remained walled in their defences.

Brutal and riveting. Really great, but it's actually quite scarring so you want to be good in life before watching this.

Mysterious gates bring monsters into the world, but people develop superpowers and one previously-worthless combatant becomes incredible.

Pretty good so far.

  • Original title: Ore dake Level Up na Ken
  • The origin is Korean, but this is a Japanese endeavour.

An ugly, unaccomplished, student discovers a hidden world within which he becomes a hero and transforms himself in that and the real world.

It might be quite good, but because the main character is superpowered it's a pretty shitty story angle; not recommended.

  • aka / properly titled: I Got a Cheat Skill in Another World and Became Unrivaled in the Real World, Too
  • Note that every episode has an end-credit scene.
  • A second season has been confirmed

John Wick returns to alternately ruin and end his friends lives in the hopes of leveraging an obscure rule to free himself from .. whatever their assassins society is called.

It's adequate, but has nowhere near equality: I think one unimportant woman dies on-screen and then the body vanishes, another gets hurt, and this has to be the most brutally misandrist movie I've ever seen. Feminist approved!

Straightforward and wholesome; highly recommended.

A zombie apocalypse fells Japan and it's up to an almost-NEET everyman to mostly save a couple of people.

A straightforward and largely unsurprising movie; fine for wasting some time.

Boring as hell; I couldn't get into it.
