Classroom of Mystery
We’ve all been to high school, or currently at high school depending on your age, but you’ll agree with me when you first get a glimpse of Tokyo Koudo Ikusei Senior High School and wonder why we never had such a school. It’s secluded from the Tokyo mainland and has an amazing campus (think University meets retail park/mall), and 100% of students either go on to college or straight into a job. What more can you ask for from a school that has it all and gives you a guaranteed job/place in college at the end?
Well they are even more generous than that. Each student gets their own smartphone, and at the start of each month they’re told they will be receiving 100,000 points which is basically 100,000 yen. With this they can buy anything and everything available on campus, be it clothes, food and consoles. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Psychic One Punch Man
It’s been a while my readers, but I am still around! Just been busy here and there, but I haven’t forgotten about blogging. I would say this mini but unintended break was for the best, what with me being able to check out some new anime without feeling the need to rush in making reviews.
And what better way to come back than with Mob Psycho 100. It’s made by the creator of One Punch Man, which I must say is such a good anime that I’m watching it again (expect a revisited review!). Mob Psycho has elements from One Punch Man, but it’s in its own universe.

Where it all began…
…for Dazai at least.
Season 1 of Bungo was amazing with its weird but wonderful characters and storyline, minus the part where Nakajima Atsushi was able to improve his combat skills without warning. It’s still a jump in the story that annoys me. Continue reading “Bungo Stray Dogs (Season 2)”
Who said the game was over?
So after watching one episode, I reviewed Overlord and then dropped the series. I didn’t give it the benefit of the doubt back then, but I did this time, and I realised how much I was missing and how bad my first review must have been. Overlord is definitely better than what my review (may or may not) say, but then again I haven’t gone back to check what I wrote. You can check it on my Blogger (not giving you a link because this review will sell Overlord to you). Continue reading “Overlord”
Why can’t all tutors be this amazing?
I actually can’t remember what made me want to watch this, but it’s just adorable and funny. I’d end my review there, but there’s a lot more to talk about than just saying it’s adorable and funny.
When I got into the first few minutes of the The Royal Tutor, it felt like it had some Diabolik Lovers vibes going on, but fortunately this proved to be wrong. Not that Diabolik Lovers is a bad anime in my opinion; the characters could have been fleshed out a bit more, and for me it was curiosity that made me watch the entire series. But we’ll get on to this topic in a sec. Continue reading “The Royal Tutor”
Just when you thought you knew what was going on in Season 1
My did Season 1 end with a cliffhanger, which I am gonna spoil because it’s been what, 3 or 4 years(?) since it aired: Titans in the walls! Talk about a bombshell.
Attack on Titan comes back after a long wait with a very intense plot as we delve deeper into the AoT universe. So much is going that I have no idea where to start. Well, I can say that Season 2 carries on from where Season 1 ended with everyone who was fighting the Titans looking at the part of the wall which crumbled after Annie had grabbed it in her attempt to escape from Eren in his Titan form.

The past can come back to haunt you
It’s not often you come across a manga where a person has a disability, and this is what drew me to Koe no Katachi. The huge difference in what you usually come across in the world of manga and anime, you know your fantasy worlds, typical high school romance stories and what have you, is a nice breath of fresh air, and after coming across it via tweets when the movie was what everyone was talking about and seeing a couple of clips, I just had to get in on the hype.
And it truly is amazing. Koe no Katachi follows Ishida Shouya, a boy who’s bored with life and tries to add some excitement to it by becoming somewhat of an adrenaline junkie. His fearless actions are adored by his friends even though they aren’t really fans of what he does, if you get what I mean. Nevertheless, they want to be around him. Continue reading “Koe no Katachi”
More like attack on humans amirite?
It’s been so long since my last post! But I have come back now that my exams are over. There are so many new anime that have released and I want to check out, one of them being Attack on Titan Season 2, and since I watched Season 1 before I started blogging and because of the big gap between them, I went back to refresh my memory on Season 1.
Attack on Titan is set in a fictional world where humanity is on the brink of extinction. Why? Human-eating Titans. Yes, Titans, and as such humans have resorted to building tall walls in order to get away from them. Three in fact, those being Maria, Rose and Sina, and for 100 years humanity has been safe from these Titans. Well, those who remain behind these walls. Continue reading “Attack on Titan (Season 1)”
Even more mouthwatering than Season 1
Knowing me, I don’t always watch a series on time depending on my schedule, level of laziness and if I’m holding it off until I get round to finishing off other anime. Or re-watch an anime. You get the idea.
So, imagine my regret mixed in with all the hype and excitement when I got round to Season 2 of Food Wars and realising that it’s one of those where you should really watch it whilst episodes are being released before you go back and binge watch. Well it wasn’t that bad, because the hype for The Second Plate (TSP) was real and big enough for me to not think about regret too much. Continue reading “Food Wars! The Second Plate”
A tale of two “kings”
Thanks to Twitter, I came to know about this manga and put it on my “to read” list. And it’s quite different to what I expected just from seeing one image of Kuroki. Pretty interesting too if you pay attention to what’s going on from the beginning, unlike me who didn’t until about halfway through what’s been translated so far. Clearly I’m losing out here
So Kikenchitai Danshi. It’s a romance manga set in high school, but it’s quite unique from the get go which was surprisingly good. Our leading lady is Satsuki Kurei who attends a high school close to two all-boys’ schools that are the complete opposite to the other, and are both “ruled” by “kings”. By this I mean one guy from each school basically rules the others in their respective schools, and one is known as the White King and the other as the Black King due to their personalities. I’m sure you can guess that one is more prince-like than the other. Continue reading “Kikenchitai Danshi”
