The 2010’s Were Full of Great Titles!
There were so many great titles in the past decade, in fact, that I had a hard time only picking 10 of them. So, since we are entering 2020, I thought I’d expand the list to 20 titles! Before we dive in, I need to state that only shows I actually watched to completion were eligible for the list, so if a title is missing, I probably just didn’t watch it yet. Additionally, films will be included on this list as well since there were a few that came out and I saw that I really liked, but not enough for a separate list. Finally, these are my picks, so if you disagree, just make your own list, I’d love to see it! Continue reading “My Top 20 Anime of The Decade”
I Laughed a LOT
Back in 2016, Sakamoto was my favorite show of the season hands down. It was extremely funny and fun to watch. I eagerly awaited each new episode every week and just couldn’t get enough of this fantastic show. What’s even more surprising? It’s a Studio Dean production.
Each episode follows cool guy Sakamoto during his everyday life as a high school student. Usually, somebody tries to make him look bad in each episode, but by the end they only manage to make him look cooler. Some episodes are just short gags and there were 2 full episodes that were more story focused in the series.
I recently had the pleasure of watching this again (for the third time!) with my younger brother and I can confidently say that Sakamoto holds up with each rewatch. Each episode was very funny and never got repetitive. My fan theory that he is an alien only gets more and more reinforced as well. There is just too much evidence! I mean, how else does he do all this stuff?
There was one episode that was pretty poor compared to the others part way through on first viewing, but it was an extremely necessary episode that setup the show’s conclusion rather well. On a rewatch, I hardly noticed this. I don’t want to say much else, because this is a show that I think is a must-see for any anime fan. Sakamoto is definitely a must-watch series!
What did you think of Sakamoto? Did it have you laughing or was it a major dud for you? Also, do you think Sakamoto is an alien? Let me know in the comments below.

As always, thanks for reading and I hope to see you back here at Jon Spencer Reviews again soon!
When the OP is Just Right…
I know it’s been awhile since I’ve personally put an actual article up on here. So I thought I’d get back into the swing of things by celebrating some of my favorite anime openings. I’ve seen a couple hundred anime, so this list took some careful consideration to whittle down to just 25.
The list is in no particular order and the only rule is that the opening has to have come from a show I’ve seen. Other than that, no repeats for stuff I’ve reviewed outside of honorable mentions. Obviously this is just my personal taste, so if an OP you love isn’t on the list I probably didn’t see the show or just didn’t like the opening that much ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Continue reading “Top 25 Anime Openings”
I shockingly watched a few things from the Spring 2016 anime line-up and thought this quick look at each show that caught my interest might be fun to do. This article will look at all the shows I watched and any shows that have caught my interest, but haven’t started/finished yet for whatever reason. Shows will be discussed in no real particular order and their may be minor spoilers. I wouldn’t expect this sort of thing each season either. With that, let’s get into it!
