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…

What I watched in Winter 2019

Another season of anime is behind us!

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 Continue reading…
