I have no idea why I am waiting each week for the next episode. There is something that really disturbs me in this anime. In one hand it is very dark and mature, with characters that have deep personalities, but in the other hand "lol we bring a lolly with an annoying voice on the battlefield and we do as everything is fine, even though we should all be totally traumatised". Idk, it feels a bit disrespectful for the persons who really suffered of the kind of events that happen in this show. But from what I saw on internet I am part of the minority here. Anyway still worth watching if you are into anime.

one of the best-written animes with a story, mostly I get easily distracted and lose my focus on watching something, but this one kept me hooked. you wouldn't regret watching this one :wink:

86 is an absolute rollercoaster of a show in terms of plot, pacing, characterization (even if it's just of 2), and predictability. The ending that I wanted was achieved but not without the constant dread this show instills from early on. Still shadowboxing in excitement about it.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
