5 MAL Scores I Disagree With

MAL scores (or myanimelist scores) – they serve as a rough estimation of how well an anime is received. But ofcourse, if something has a high score, it doesn’t mean its a series that will most certainly without a doubt work for you. Nor does a low score mean you will find the series terrible too.

While this means I could miss out on a lot of amazing anime, I do make the decision to occasionally pick up shows later on in the season if they are talked about a lot, or if Continue reading…

7 Openings and Endings that make you feel everything will be alright

Music is one of those things that will, for me personally, almost always work when I feel down. And when you add anime to it, the effect can grow even more. I’ve talked before about my love for anime openings, so in this post I will suggest you 7 Openings and Endings that will help you when things get rough. SAO II Ending 1 (Haruna – Startear) The first part of the second Sword Art Online season, the GGO arc, talks about Asada Shino, who wants to overcome her trauma of guns by playing the VR game Gun Gale Online. I won’t go into much spoilers, but she definitely had a tough childhood, which left her in the depressed state portrayed in this ending sequence. I want to be stronger; just a little stronger With that, I made a wish, In hopes of overcoming this sadness. The lyrics, combined with the beautiful visuals, including the scene when Sinon, Asada’s VR avatar hugs her, really feel helpful. The overall Continue reading…
