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
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
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
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.
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
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
Greatest Anime cook-off ever
My first review did not do the anime justice, and with Season 2 completed a while back, I decided to watch Season 1 again. And it’s just as good as the first time I watched it.
Yukihira Soma is the star of Food Wars and a talented young chef who wishes to surpass his father’s cooking skills someday. He helps out at the family diner until one day his father decides to jet off somewhere, and enrolling Soma in Totsuki, an elite culinary high school with a 1% pass rate (well something as low as that). So only the creme de la creme can graduate at a school with such a low pass rate, and at his induction ceremony, Soma declares he will become the Number 1 student at Totsuki. Continue reading
Them feels though
A belated happy 2017 to all my beloved readers! Here’s to another good year! ^o^/
It has been so long since I last watched Adventure Tri. I knew the third part (Kokuhaku) had aired, but totally forgot about it until I had a sudden realisation one day that it had (sorry guys ^^”). So I made the time to finally get round to watching it, and it definitely did not disappoint.
For those of you new to the blog, I was part of the generation that grew up with the likes of Pokemon, Digimon, Beyblade and Yu-Gi-Oh! So I’m one of those who like their nostalgia, but in doses as that makes it more appealing and enjoyable. After my long break from the series, it was nice to see Tai and the gang once again in Kokuhaku which follows on from the events of Ketsui. To refresh our minds on the latter, Ketsui ended with everyone (except Joe) taking part in the school festival. The Digimon were there too, but Meicoomon becomes infected after a certain someone who we thought was good but turns out they’re not (who I will reveal shortly to save those who haven’t yet seen any of Adventure Tri from spoilers) made it happen. Sad times. Also, Joe was more of a bench warmer in Ketsui what with him needing to focus on exams, and poor Gomamon couldn’t hang around with him. Mimi had more show time and definitely used the opportunity well, bringing in some energy into the episodes. Continue reading
Beauty on Ice
The season has finally ended, and that final episode was just amazing. I’ll get onto that later
I remember the first time I knew about this anime. It just released on Crunchyroll, and I thought I’d check it out after seeing people talk about it on Twitter. Then I watched it. About 30 seconds in and I thought “what is this?” and turned it off. And that was just the opening! Mind you there were other people around and they were talking quite loudly so I couldn’t really catch the opening song.
After 3 or 4 episodes released, I gave it another try. Sat alone this time, and I click play on the first episode. And I loved the opening song! I looked forward to it in every episode, mouthing the words and trying to make the ones out I couldn’t quite catch. It was worth it. Continue reading
No rest for the wicked
So there are around two or three (maybe four to make it a nice 20) episodes to go now before the end of a short but amazing series that is Pokemon Generations. And we’re finally in the Kalos Region! I haven’t played X or Y, but from the looks of this episode, it’s a pretty interesting Region with its villains.
The Beauty Eternal is sort of a fast paced but dark episode, and is a strong-ish start to a new Region. Lysandre is our main guy in this episode and judging from the glimpse of Yveltal at the end *late spoiler alert*, he’s the villain from Pokemon Y. At first I thought he was a good guy, what with how he seemed to be portrayed during a public presentation with his Pyroar, until he mentions something about never letting the world become ugly. Turns out he’s part of Team Flare. My lack of Pokemon gaming knowledge is clearly showing… Continue reading
