Senryuu Shoujo – First impressions

Has it ever happened to you? You start an anime, you have fun with it, but it ends very quickly. So quickly, that you feel as if time has doubled its speed. Was it such an enjoyable episode that you lost your sense of time? But then you realize the episode was actually just 12 minutes long. You started a short anime without knowing it. I guess 12 minutes per episode does count as a short anime, does it? If so, this will be my second short anime after finishing Oshiete Galko-chan last summer. The story Senryuu Shoujo follows Yukishiro Nanako, a high school girl bad at talking. So bad, that she writes senryuu (a type of haiku) poems to communicate with people. She is in the Literature club with Busujima Eiji, who gives off an intimidating vibe to those around him. But why would someone like Eiji be in Continue reading…

Questions x Answers 1: My inspiration for blogging?

So a few weeks ago I wanted to try making something a little bit different on this blog, and I randomly asked you on Twitter to send me some questions I will answer in this post. There were actually some responses, and I’m thankful to everyone who sent me something, you literally made this post possible. By the way, the title for this post is basically a reference to Hunter x Hunter, I think its easy to understand why. With that out of the way, let’s get into the questions! Music The first question was from @sambgrits: Well, my music files are pretty much filled with anime openings and endings. I guess I’m quite a fan of J-pop then, cause the songs usually just fit my style. But other than that, I’m a fan of the Eurovision Song Contest, so I listen to the competing entries and the entries from Continue reading…

Bungou Stray Dogs Season 3 Hype

I started watching Bungou Stray Dogs right on time to finish the first 2 seasons and the movie before the start of season 3. And while season 1 was already pretty great, the epicness of season 2 almost makes it look weak in comparison. Especially those first 4 episodes which focused on Dazai’s time in Port Mafia through the eyes of a new character Odasaku. I don’t remember a more impactful and memorable set of 4 episodes which were actually a backstory. It was really that amazing. I thought while watching it that season 2 would entirely focus on Dazai’s past and honestly I would be so happy if that was right. You can imagine then how happy I was to realize that season 3 will seemingly expand even more on Dazai’s past. This time on the events from even further back in time. Back when Dazai was given his Continue reading…

Kono Yo no Hate de Koi wo Utau Shoujo YU-NO – First impressions

Time to start off with the Spring 2019 anime season and the first impressions for the new anime. Some series like Fruits Basket 2019 and Kimetsu no Yaiba have already had screenings of their first episodes, but they are nowhere to be found for streaming. That’s why the first Spring 2019 anime I’ll talk about in more detail is Kono Yo no Hate de Koi wo Utau Shoujo YU-NO or YU-NO: A girl who chants love at the bound of this world in English. The first episode of this visual novel adaptation has aired on the 2nd of April. The story Takuya Arima’s hystorian father has disappeared, and Takuya believes he died in a cave-in during his research. But is that really the truth? Just as summer vacation is about to start, Takuya receives a strange package with some kind of unknown item. His stepmother is in charge of a Continue reading…

The sadness of finishing anime

I hate anime. It gives me so many happy moments, it makes my life better in so many ways. I watch certain series week after week, get invested in the story and characters. And then things just… End. And I’m left with a huge void in my heart. And yet I keep coming back for more. Only to experience this sadness again. I’m writing this just after finishing the last episode of Sword Art Online: Alicization Part 1 and, as you can probably tell, it has left me feeling quite sad. 6 months 6 months. The number of months that had passed since Alicization Part 1 had started, and the number of months that will take for Alicization to return. A lot of things have happened in these 6 months. Both in my world and the SAO world. But on Saturday there was always an episode of Alicization to watch. Continue reading…

Spring 2019: What looks interesting

With the first anime season of 2019 behind us, it’s already time to focus on the upcoming Spring 2019 anime season. I checked out the synopsis and available PVs for each of the titles offered, and these are the anime I’m most likely to watch: Isekai Quartet (MAL link) Yes, really. I usually don’t really watch the chibi spin-offs of anime series. I think the only one I’ve seen was Toradora SOS, and as much as it pains me to say it, it wasn’t really good. But a crossover of isekai anime sounds like an interesting concept so I want to see what they will do with it. Even if I haven’t seen Youjo Senki nor Overlord, which will feature in this along with Re:Zero and Konosuba. Bungou Stray Dogs Season 3 (MAL link) I started watching Bungou Stray Dogs right on time to finish the first two seasons before Continue reading…

Best April Fools Ever

April Fools day. T-Series leads as the day starts. Darkness has prevailed for another day. College stuff ends for the day. I come back to the city I lived in till just months ago, in order to do another exhausting driving session. As I finish eating out with friends, I have 3 hours till I should leave for the driving session. Sadly I forgot to take my headphones. And the phone charger. Can’t watch anime then it seems. Best thing I can do is maybe take a nap and write some stuff for the blog. I get some 30 minutes of sleep. Soon after waking up I check the PewDiePie vs T-Series livestream and wow. HE ACTUALLY RETOOK THE LEAD. They thought it was over. They even changed their banner to mark the occassion. But yesterday PewDiePie* uploaded a new song, titled Congratulations. I guess this was the video he Continue reading…

What I watched in Winter 2019

Another season of anime is behind us! We are already one-quarter into 2019… Just as I did at the end of the Fall 2018 anime season – I’m gonna go through all the anime I’ve watched in Winter 2019, be it seasonal, non-seasonal, or a rewatch. Seasonal anime Boogiepop wa Warawanai I do enjoy watching Boogiepop but it’s really not an anime you would watch weekly. After watching the first 2 episodes that way, I already felt confused with the events and characters so I decided to restart my watching. Now I’m just at the start of the second half of the series and I’ll get to finishing the remaining episodes soon. It’s also not an anime I’d watch at any time other than late night. The music and the whole mood just fit that time so well. But I guess that’s expected from something with the Horror tag isn’t Continue reading…

What I want to see in Re:Zero Season 2

This morning I woke up to the amazing news that a second season of Re:Zero has finally been confirmed. This comes shortly after other exciting anime announcements, like Oregairu Season 3 and Psycho-Pass Season 3. We are gonna get spoiled with amazing news at this rate. But please, keep it going, anime gods. Anyways, the Re:Zero*┬áSeason 2 announcement also came with a PV, which, while simple, seems to suggest there is a lot more pain in store for Subaru. Here are the 5 main things I want to see resolved in this new season of Re:Zero. The mystery of Satella The PV seems to suggest we will finally get to see Satella. Which is great, because there are a lot of mysteries surrounding her that I’d really like to see resolved. To start off, why does she look so similar to Emilia? Why did she use Satella’s name the first Continue reading…
