The Pantless Anime Blogger (TPAB) aims to do one thousand anime reviews. It is a difficult thing to do possibly destroying my sanity but a goal this blogger wants to reach. I love anime and I wanted to put this love of mine to good use.
TPAB promises to review anime as impartial as possible. I have my own personal likes and dislikes but I will try my best to give readers a reason to watch an anime. I do not believe there is such a thing as a bad anime. It just doesn’t suit you. Everything has a target audience. Whether you’re a bishie fan, a mecha fan, loli fan, tentacle porn fan, gore fan, door knob licking fan or just plain fan of the weird; there is an anime suited for you. I aim to try my best to relate to those niches in doing an objective review. Of course, if an anime is truly bad then I will point it out. If it has a saving grace to it then I will do my best to note it.
Open mindedness is an important key to enjoying anime. I am lucky enough to have a decent open minded outlook in things so I believe a thousand reviews is an attainable goal, even though it is hard to achieve. It’s like fighting Emerald Weapon in FF7 without using the Knights of Round. XD
Let’s all enjoy them pantless. Peace.
I think its great to see lengthy, detailed reviews from the average otaku (yes, i shall address you as that). I love you style of writing and the fact that you review anime after completely watching them (so people don’t and its infuriating). Anyhow, keep up your good work!
The titles you’re reviewing are a bit questionable. Where are the reviews of the classics?
how are they questionable? please explain if you can. 🙂
classics? can you please define what makes an anime a classic?
are you referring to mainstream anime that you watch in Toonami and anime popular in the US? There is a wide range of anime that people do not bother to look at and I try my best to review them.
There are more than 100 anime released every year yet only a handful of them are given decent reviews. You can check other review sites for “classics”. You can check my site for anime you’ve probably never heard of and I take pride in that. 🙂
One can google anime reviews and read dozens covering the anime “classics”, it that kind of rehashed stuff some people are looking for. Its your blog, watch what you want to watch, review what calls to you 😉
GoodLuck in reaching 1000 anime reviews! Love reading your reviews and how you try not to spoil them which is definitely a tough thing to do. Looking forward for more reviews !
thank you. it means a lot.
my reviews needs more work but I’m glad I this little site can help. 🙂
I never watch anime without pants. It simply isn’t safe. That aside, it seems as I scum around for new anime to view that I come to this site more and more often to read preliminary reviews; please keep up the great work! It may be a good idea to add a site section or feature where readers can request reviews of certain anime. (I’d love to see your thoughts on Star Driver!) 😛
I tried a request section last june. I had twenty four anime from requests, I’ve only reviewed three of them. I prioritize new anime and maybe a new request section once I cleared the ones in my bottomless backlog.
thanks a lot for visiting this humble little site. 🙂
Would be great if the reviews can be sorted by rating. 🙂 I’m very interested to know which ones you rated highly but browsing through each review can be a bit hard. ^^ You see I just finished watching “Attack on Titan” so I’m looking for another great anime to watch. I was hoping your reviews could help direct me to the right anime. 🙂
fine. I think you’re the third person to ask for a rating based list. Fine. I’ll work on it but please understand that they’re just numbers. It’s often hard to impartially give an anime a score and I change them frequently as well. You often can’t trust a number score on a review.
Thanks for the request. I’ll work on it.
Do you have a email people can get a hold of you?
it’s in the last sentence of the “about” page.
anyways, it’s “pantlessanimeblogger AT gmail.com”
Hello, this is the first time I visit your site, but I love how you explained the element in the anime that you reviewed with an amazing detail. Actually, I’m also an amateur blogger who specialized in writing anime reviews (its in Indonesian though) and I’m truly salute of your resolve to reach the 1000 anime reviews, good luck in making that resolve come true! ^^
thanks. first blogging is hard. the comments doesn’t come and the views are low. Just keep blogging and I’m sure people will realize how awesome your blog is. 🙂
good luck on your blogging as well.
Indeed, I consider this place as one of my lists for anime to watch next. It’s always nice of your reviews to give me an impression on how the anime is like. I usually read the first bits though cuz you tend to give away the story in the plot points section. Anyways, I like your humor, and continue doing these reviews! You got bookmarked already on my browser. :3
yeah, I go overboard with the spoilers. I try to contain as much as I can though. I try to be discreet for first time viewers but I also add some for people who dropped the show or those who already seen it. I try to cover all bases. My reviews are cut into paragraphs though so just skip the spoilers. Thanks for the support.
I think it would be interesting if you wrote a post with a Japanese emoticon theme.

wow i love your reviews and you love boobs too just like me.
so keep it on and good luck
Unfortunately Hexascii copied everything they have from our site, http://JapaneseEmoticons.me. We’ve tried to contact them multiple times through their website and social media channels and they have never gotten back to us.
You can see proof of their plagiarism here: http://japaneseemoticons.me/hexascii-copied-everything-they-have-from-us/
We’ve made tons of updates to our website since they copied us so you’ll find way more emoticons on ours now too, over 10,000 emoticons.
We’d appreciate it very much if you could remove the link to their site and instead link to ours.
Thank you in advance.
Been trying to find a great anime review blog for ages and I think I found one, you got some really detailed reviews here. I have a small review blog and I was wondering if you can help me with a question I got. When you post images of an anime in your review how do you not worry about copyright, is there a certain website you get them off? I done reviews before but I don’t think they get much attention because I don’t use images, its all paragraphs.
I think bloggers were once hunted for putting pictures on their blog but that was a long time ago. I mean, I’ve been doing this for 2 years now and I’ve never had a complaint. There is a copyright act that allows you to use images though but as long as you credit the owners or don’t make profit off it. This is a harmless blog so far. 🙂 Also, I prntscrn all my pictures then upload them in tumblr.
I think it’s among the very first rules of blogging to always have an image in your posts. Text walls can be intimidating so putting pictures in between makes it less daunting to read. I usually stuff a lot of pics in my review because most people just look at pics than read a review. Some would go back to actually read the review after they finished the anime. It’s a complicated thing, having a review blog.
If you want attention then simply just improve your style. To do so, simply keep blogging. Secondly, find your target audience. I sucker in people who googles “_______ anime review” but I make sure my review is actually helpful. But really, if you can find a way to tell the world how you love something then people who also love it will eventually gravitate towards your blog.
What you gain from hardwork can never betray you. 🙂
Thanks a lot for the great reply, this has really helped 🙂
why is your smiley crying… did his mother die
it’s : + D = 😀
Wordpress has its own emoticons.
i’m all up here to support you guys, just keep it up the good work there..
it’s just one guy. but thanks. appreciate it.
Hi, TPAB! I’m a new anime blogger here too, and was surprised to find someone like you who I think has the pretty same taste as me…I think. Like we both used the theme misty lake. And we both named our search bar widget. And we love anime. And like subs better. Anyway, since I’m relatively new, could you give me advice tips on how to blog? My blog is animetimestwo.wordpress.com. Thanks, a new follower, Jazzy. 🙂
I’m always ready to give advice to new bloggers. When I was starting out, most bloggers are actually pretty hostile with newbies and I always hated that mentality. I asked for advice and most would ignore me.
If you’re starting out then really, the only useful advice is to keep blogging. The comments and the views don’t come immediately. It’ll take up to a year or so before your site is recognized.
In that short time, I say develop your style. Improve your english, discover your audience and what they like from your work and so on.
Most bloggers create a site on a whim and they often abandon their wrork after a few moths because they want comments and views quickly. It’s a good way to weed out the serious ones from those that just created a site on a whim.
Lastly, blog for yourself. There is always a bunch of people ready to embrace what you write so just be yourself. Be relatable though and friendly so not to alienate others but don’t blog for instant recognition or gratification. Blog because you enjoy blogging. Force it and most people will easily tell you’re forcing it. Don’t blog for attention, it’ll come. Just be patient and enjoy the ride for now. 🙂
Thanks for the tips! It’s true that my English isn’t that perfect so I’ll try to perfect it. What you said about blogging for yourself was very deep. 🙂
You’re amazing and I hope you blog on!
no problem. I hope you enjoy your time blogging as well and keep blogging on. XD
Yep, you too! No, definitely you have to keep blogging or else I’ll dieee!!!!
just one out-a-site blog! wowzerz!
your writing skills are superb because your words have heart & soul. use to do a political blog called, “politicom – where politics and comedy collide”. found out much to my dismay, politics is only funny at election time.
anyways, you have a wonderful light and gentle, really very cheerful style. you are gifted.
love your blog, and can’t wait to add you on our links page!
I always look for new anime so I hope you can provide me on insight of which anime is better.I live in Manchester so it’s hard to find people who like anime and fangirl over it!!! 😛 I also hope this blog would be a medium to meeting others with the similar interest of anime … As pantless as that may be ;D
I’m not really sure how I can pull off an active community in this site. It sounds pretty awesome though. I’ll take it into consideration and find a way to get a lively discussion going. Hopefully, you’ll find some fangirling on your area soon, lol.
Oh, no, I didn’t mean to make it seem like I was seeking active discussion. It’s just nice to have people who like anime and recommend it for me. Gee I bet I sound like some freak
you replied late! I’m actually now working on a way to get the discussions going because of your comment, lol. let’s get these stalkers out into the light. 🙂
Oh, Cool! yay stalkers!
Haii 🙂 I started doing amv´s I was hoping if you could help me showing to other people, only if you like of course 😉 Here´s the amv ^^ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsyH9j3IHHc
Hello there. I would like to start off by saying your blog is quite impressive, I am quite amazed at the detail of the reviews you go through. You have more than inspired me to pick up quite a few new anime series in the future.
Secondly, I would like to reach out to you into a possible collaboration. I apologize, usually I try to avoid doing such things in the comments, but I was unable to find you email. I recently created a website that helps people find new anime shows to watch. It will randomly select one for you. The goal is to help people either venture out from the anime shows they know or just to help them find a new show to watch.
You can contact me directly at email@example.com for details about the collaboration if you are interested. If not, it is perfectly fine. Thank you for your very detailed reviews.
Isang Libo? Powtek! Dugong-dugo na siguro yung mata mo pag nagawa mo yun. Palarin ka sana, kababayan ko.
Kaya pa naman pre. Bumabagal, pero papatalo b tayong mga pinoy? Haha.
Hi, It’s nice to read your reviews on differents anime series, thank you for your hard work. On another side I would like to know how to find an specific anime review in the site, thank you in advance for your kind answer.
Good luck on achieving 1000 reviews!
