I’ve always enjoyed my hentai reviews. Despite sometimes not having much to talk about, I find that this is a genre that doesn’t get the fair shake it deserves. Now don’t get me wrong, there is more slop and trash here than you can shake a stick at. And there are some stuff that makes you raise more than one eyebrow. Still there are some gems among them all that are worth discussing. Today’s entry is one I talked about before, but I one that I wanted to revisit and give another look to. So after the cut let’s re-dive into the Hentai series: Bible Black.

I’ve dabbled in several harem series throughout my blogging world, and through those highs and lows I still never felt as refreshed as I did when I watched this show. Coming out in a year where ecchi and harem shows were at an all-time low. This was an anime that was like drinking water after a drought. A fun and cute little story with a great script and plenty of cute girls to enjoy. Yet it has been a few years and this is a story I wanted to get back too. Was it as good as I said it was? Or was the fact that this was the only thing on the menu give it praise it didn’t deserve? Well we are going to find out, so join me after the cut as we Re-Dive into Hensuki: Are you Willing to Fall in Love with A Pervert as Long as She’s a Cutie?
It could be argued, rightly or wrongly, that the internet and modern online culture has destroyed the idea of just enjoying your hobby. If you dive yourself into the cesspit of social media, often liking something or enjoying something puts you on one end of the culture war. No longer can people like something, instead you have to make it part of your personality, or defend it against any and all accusations. It’s a difficult and stressful time if you care about such things.
So it is nice when shows like this come out and fully embrace just loving what you love, regardless of any implications or inferences. After the cut, let’s take re-dive into the series Knights & Magic.
This is a series I didn’t know I would revisit, but I won’t complain that I did. A show that is so legendary among the fans who love it, yet hasn’t got the praise and attention it might deserve. After watching it again what do I think though? Well after the cut let’s take a dive into Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These and find out.
I wasn’t intending to come back to this series unless it was reviewing the Light Novels. However I’ve been watching anime with a friend and I knew that GoblinSlayer would be something he enjoyed. So we sat down and re-watched the series once more and I figured I got a bit more to say. So after the cut, let’s take a re-dive into the series: Goblin Slayer!

I finished this series a while ago, but other posts sadly took up my time! No more though, and I’m eager to get back and wrap this re-dive up! Last time we left off I said Fate Apocrypha was a good series that had many great moments. But it absolutely felt the most like a spin-off compared to other series. Does that mean it is bad though? And has the remaining half of the show carried things forward? After the cut let’s take a dive into the back half of Fate Apocrypha and find out!
I’ve been on a bit of an isekai binge lately, revisiting and re-watching series I’ve always deeply enjoyed. At the top of that list was this anime, one that I’ve gushed about before and frankly, couldn’t wait to do it again. My praise was high the last time, but would it hold up on a second (or third) look? Well after the cut let’s take a re-dive into Saga of Tanya the Evil and find out!
If there is one anime that can be credited with getting my to start blogging, or frankly to start watching anime seriously again. It would be ReZero. I’ve told this story before, but for those new to Shallow Dives, let me explain once more. Around 2016 I was pretty much ‘done’ with anime. I had watched it all throughout my childhood, but at that point I had fallen off pretty hard. Most of my favorite series were wrapped or close to wrapping, and I had long come down from my Gundam kick. There was no bad blood, but I felt I had gotten ‘my fill’ from the anime world. It wasn’t until a friend suggested that I check out this show, that the dominos starting falling once more. The rest, if you’ve been following this blog for close to three years now, is history.
And so last month, I actually sat down and re-watched the entire first season front to back, the first time I’ve done it since the original airing. Did it hold up? Was it as a good as I thought, or had time worn off some of the shine? Well after the cut let’s re-dive into one of the most beloved Isekai series of the last decade: ReZero: Starting Life in Another World
I talked about this show ages ago, back when the blog was just starting, and I always wanted to come back to it. It remains a beloved series for so many, and it’s continued love has made it last a very long time. Now that a second season is actually happening! It’s no better time to do so! Join me after the cut as we re-dive into one the classics of the Isekai genre: The Devil is a Part-Timer!
I’ve talked about this series before, and I’ll probably do it again. There are probably only a handful of anime that you watch in your life that become regular re-watches, that are in your view, absolutely rock solid in what they are. We all have them, or will get them in time. The show we are discussing today is one of mine. After the cut let’s take a re-dive into Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works
