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…

Toradora December #4 – Episodes 20 – 25

When I came up with the idea for this series of posts, I thought I will pick 5 best moments each time. It was hard to pick the moments since the beginning, but by the third installment it became impossible. In the third part I “sneaked in” an extra moment, making it 6. But for this final part, I’m just gonna go all out, no matter how long the post will be. Each episode has several different moments worth talking about. So leaving things out just to make it 5 overall for all 6 episodes makes no sense. So with that out of the way, let’s begin! For the final time. *cries* Shocking confession – Episode 20 As Christmas ended, Ryuuji had to move forward. Taiga believed in him and Minori. She has realized what Minori is doing – not acting on her feelings in order to not hurt Taiga. Continue reading…

Toradora December #3 – Episodes 14 – 19

Before I start with part 3 of Toradora December, I want to wish a merry Christmas to everyone reading this! Thank you for taking the time of your day to read this post. The third set of episodes involved superstitious rumours, elections for the student council and a Christmas party. Let’s dive into it! Ami is our last hope – Episode 15 When Kitamura dyed his hair out of refusal to become the student council president, Ami Kawashima made some harsh comments on him. And Minori understands why. She thinks highly of Ami’s words, due to her experience with the adult world. Minori wants to believe that for this reason, Ami already understands everyone’s feelings. She thinks of Ami as the group’s last hope. Ryuuji calls Minorin kind, which she denies, describing herself as “phony”. Ryuuji didn’t seem to understand why she described herself like that. But he did seem Continue reading…

Toradora December #2 – Episodes 7 – 13

Another quarter of the Toradora rewatch is already done, which means its time for the new installment of Toradora December! This pack of episodes involved swimming pools, beach houses, caves, fireworks, family issues and the school cultural festival. Here are my 5 favorite moments. Ryuuji is mine! – Episode 8 Ryuuji ends up knocked down in the swimming pool. The person he sees helping him out is Taiga. As he wakes up, Taiga breaks down emotionally, because no one noticed what has happened to Ryuuji. She screams “Ryuuji is mine!” and tells everyone to keep their hands off him. Such a powerful scene. I think what happened speaks for itself. But what has made this scene even more powerful for me are the reactions from Minori and Kitamura. They understood everything, probably better than Ryuuji and Taiga themselves. Afterwards, Taiga tried to downplay the moment. “He is my dog. I Continue reading…

Toradora December #1 – Episodes 1 – 6

Toradora is one of those anime that will always have a special place in my heart.  The first time I’ve seen it was in summer 2017, aka the start of my anime watching career. It was one of the first anime I’ve watched subbed, and my first ever romance/comedy/slice of life anime. Last Christmas was when I rewatched it for the first time, and it made for my favorite Christmas to date. Back then I decided I will rewatch Toradora every Christmas, and after a long year of waiting and resisting rewatching this anime, finally the time has come to start watching it for the third time. It feels like I’ve returned to the warmth of my home that I’ve left for an entire year or something. It’s so nice to watch this once again. I’ve started this year’s rewatch on the 6th December. It’s that exact date, because that Continue reading…

SAO Alicization Episode 10 has me shocked

I don’t know why Sword Art Online keeps adding those close to be raped scenes. Each season had one so far. I guess it’s to increase the emotions, make us hate the antagonists and increase the rage of our protagonists… And in all those aspects it really does work but you just wonder… Aren’t there different ways to achieve that? But in any case, 3 seasons, 3 such scenes have happened. And this time we were even warned before the start that some explicit stuff will happen. Progress I guess. It’s weird picking which one of these scenes was the best in SAO so far but I’d say this one was the best. For the reasons surrounding it ofcourse. I say that because this was a huge moment for Eugeo. We saw his rage and we saw him get the system alert message on his eye again. He was left Continue reading…
