Talking about AMVs

I’ve recently started a YouTube channel where I plan to post AMVs. AMVs are likely to be the main focus of the channel, but I won’t rule out making some other types of content, perhaps turning some of my blog posts into videos. The amount of videos I will post all depends on my avaliable time. Turns out being in university while running a blog at the same time, plus all other life activities takes a lot of time, so since I started the channel I’ve only uploaded one video so far. But I do have ideas for more. And I did start some new stuff. Things have just been a bit slower and there has been less time than I have expected. I think posting a video each week will be tough. But 2 per month is duable I think. Note that I always want to make each thing Continue reading…

I made a guest post!

Sooo I don’t really know how to do this since I’ve never made a guest post before but… Basically Mai-on were kind enough to give me the opportunity to write on their blog, so I did exactly that. The topic I wrote about was ReLIFE, which I’ve been watching over the past week. Thank you Mai-on for letting me write for you 😀 Here’s an excerpt from the review: I’m sure at some point in our lives, we all had those moments when we just wanted to start everything all over again.We all know that it’s impossible, since time travel isn’t a thing (yet).But what if you were offered a pill which makes you look 10 years younger? What if you had the chance to return to high school for a year?ReLIFE is a web manga which has been published from 2013 till 2018. A 13-Episode anime adaptation has aired Continue reading…

The Promised Neverland Episode 10 – Surely Not

It’s been a while since I did an Episode review. And the last time I did one, it was again for the tenth episode of an anime. This time its about The Promised Neverland. I’ve been actually thinking of making such a post about this anime last week, but I decided to wait for the events of today’s episode instead. But honestly, this anime has been so thrilling I could have written an episode review for every single episode because all of them had something shocking, and all of them left me desperately wanting to know what will happen next. Norman leaves Episode 10 sees Norman leave Grace Field with mom because, ofcourse, he is about to get adopted by a new family and that’s all there is to it. But before he leaves, he explains to Ray and Emma how hopeless the situation for the escape is. Norman attempting Continue reading…

Sword Art Online: Alicization updated its opening

It’s been almost two months since Sword Art Online: Alicization introduced us to a new opening song and sequence. Since then it has already been updated once, with even more polished visuals and a new Eugeo vs Bercouli scene. But since that scene was pretty much the only new scene of the opening, I didn’t felt the need to make a new post about the changes. This time, however there are a lot more new scenes. I will break down all the new scenes, while for the older ones you can go here. The new scenes We start off again with the epic Kirito and Eugeo synchronization. This time the background is red, reminiscent of the certain thing that appeared in front of Eugeo and Alice’s right eye… And this time its not just Kirito and Eugeo. Alice is now on their side. When she appears the red background turns Continue reading…

Top 5 musical performances in anime

One of my passions other than anime is the Eurovision Song Contest. And since a lot of countries these days have been revealing their songs, a lot of my attention has been on the contest. This gave me the idea to pick my 5 favorite musical performances in anime. Before starting with the list, an honorable mention to this moment in Zombieland Saga. I really wanted to add it to the list, but making a ‘top 6’ doesn’t sound as good as ‘top 5’ doesn’t it? Anyway, my 5 ‘chosen’ performances are… 5. Girls Dead Monster – Alchemy (Angel Beats!) Now to be fully honest, I’ve seen Angel Beats in September 2017 so my memory of the anime needs some refreshing. But I remember it featured its very own band, and their epic sounding and looking performance. The concept of an anime having its very own in-world band was very Continue reading…

Talking about my dropped anime

With 115 completed items on my very own myanimelist account, I consider my 6 dropped items to be a relatively low number. This is because I usually always carefully consider if an anime I’m about to start is worth watching and will it work for my tastes. But sometimes those calculations can go wrong. It can result in slower watching of the series, usually an episode at a time in the hopes that a better part of the story is coming soon. Or, in the more extreme cases it can result in new entries on the ‘on-hold’ list or even the ‘dropped’ list. So what are the 6 worse than all the others series that I just couldn’t bring myself to finish? Kimi ni Todoke (MAL link) My first ever dropped anime was Kimi ni Todoke. And I remember feeling bad about myself for this simplest of reasons – the Continue reading…

The adorable ending sequence of Kaguya-sama: Love is War

Usually when I would make a post of this type, I would break down both the opening and ending sequence or simply the opening alone. I still really like Kaguya-sama’s opening sequence, it has a smooth, unique song and fancy visuals. But I prefer the ending sequence, and I feel like it has more material to talk about. And I’m not talking about Chika Fujiwara’s special ending sequence. I’m talking about the cute and dreamy (quite literally) “regular” ending sequence. The ending The song is called Sentimental Crisis, and is performed by halca. I knew she had a familiar voice from somewhere, and it turns out she also performed the Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii ending song. Great job with both of the songs. Starting off the sequence, we have our main character, Kaguya Shinomiya, taking a nap in the student council room. We enter her dream, which starts with Continue reading…

When anime inspires you to… draw

As a child I loved doodling stuff into notebooks and writing down my imaginary sports results, entertainment shows, and similar stuff. But by high school I more or less stopped doing it. I “grew up” you may say. Fast forward to Summer 2017 and I suddenly got hugely into Japanese “cartoons”. So much that I even felt like drawing again and improving my skills. I watched various tutorials on how to improve, I practised drawing loads of eyes in different ways. But most of the tutorial videos reached a similar conclusion – good drawing skills require A LOT of practice. I guess you could only call it a small phase but I did give it a go. It resulted in a Fumikage Tokoyami drawing with some weirdly colored clothes. I would show it if I had the picture around me right now. Design theory But that wasn’t all. The last Continue reading…

5 Anime where the Side Characters are Better than the Main Character

Seeing the comments on the Winter 2019 anime season, many people seem to prefer Chika Fujiwara to Kaguya Shinomiya, the main character of Kaguya-sama: Love is War. And while I strongly disagree with that opinion, it has become an inspiration for this post, as I got reminded of the situations when I liked the side character of an anime more than the main character. Here are five such situations I could think of: New game! (MAL link) I didn’t really had any problems with Suzukaze Aoba. She was an enjoyable character and her story left a similar impact on me as the story of Shirobako did. It motivated me to work harder towards my goals of working as a video editor, and perhaps one day in anime. In fact, it helped me feel better about not being in my first choice university. My current one, computer science, isn’t exactly the Continue reading…

I survived the exam period

Hello, lovely people! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? But after almost three exhausting weeks of studying for exams, I finally have a bit of time to relax before the next semester starts. And that means time for new posts, new videos and much more anime watching! This will be a bit of a personal post and I don’t exactly know where I’ll go with it but I guess I want to make it an update of where I’ve been and what was I doing… Work hard, work hard and work hard Basically it was a lot of hard and frustrating studying. Frustrating because I was never good at subjects like physics and maths and hard because it’s really not what I wanted to do as I never really cared about such subjects either. Add to that the economics, the hard electrotecnics and the English, and you get a lot Continue reading…
