Love at first touch?
More like grope, but I’ll get onto that in a bit.
I can’t remember how exactly I first came across this manga, but after a long break from it because it’s ongoing, I went back to it only to find about 20 newly translated chapters. Talk about good things come to those who wait am I right?
Anyway, I started it again from the beginning and I loved Namaikizakari all over again, and how it progressed in the new chapters.
Namaikizari stars Machida Yuki as the MC. She’s a second year at Ryohoku high school and manager of the basketball club. As she’s recruiting first years at the start of the new school year, she encounters Naruse Shou, a rather tall and good looking guy who accidentally gropes Yuki after someone knocks him over. But Yuki bravely continues on acting as though nothing happened, given how she has younger brothers and sisters to deal with and is able to deal with stuff (not this kinda stuff though).

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 “Yuri!!! on Ice”
Basketball unlike you’ve ever seen
Now I’m no sporty person, and the only other sports anime I have seen fully is Free! Iwatobi Swim Club. That, as you’ve guessed from the name, is based on a swim club and I must say I really enjoyed that despite having no interest in swimming. So as a non-basketball person, I had no idea how this would turn out, and from the first episode, which I watched with a cousin and my sister who loves her basketball, I was hooked. They weren’t exactly focused on watching it so they missed out.
Anyway, onto Kuroko no Basket or KnB for short cos it’s too much effort to write the title fully every time (yes I am lazy XP). Continue reading “Kuroko no Basket”
