Rory’s Reviews

Here, you will find a list of my reviews of anime.

The scores are out of ten, and all reviews are based on my own personal opinion. A perfect score of ten out of ten does not necessarily mean that the anime is perfect; it’s just reflective of my enjoyment of said show. I’m not here to tell you what you should and shouldn’t watch – we’re all different and we all have our own personal views on things. Ultimately, these reviews are just me conveying my thoughts.
