Music is a vital tool for bringing people together. It's a way of communication that we've had in our lives for centuries. And that message is very much prominent in Kono Oto Tomare!, a music-themed drama that aired in Spring 2019. Produced by Platinum Vision (the studio behind Servamp and Devils Line), it follows the daily life of a high school koto club - a koto being the national instrument of Japan.
The first Fullmetal Alchemist anime adapation was one of my first anime. I loved every second of it, completely obsessed over both Edward Elric and Roy Mustang. It was the one shounen anime I had fallen in love with. From that moment on, Fullmetal has always had a special place in my heart… even if it did take me a good few years after that to actually watch Brotherhood. When I finally did watch Brotherhood, I obsessed. I binged the show so hard, I was sad when it was over. But luckily for me, there was even more Fullmetal content to love. There are also two movies – The Conqueror of Shamballa and The Sacred Star of Milos.
There's no point denying the fact that anime is a large part of my life now. I consume it nearly every day, whether that's by watching an episode or two, or reading manga, or just looking at photographs of cosplayers on Instagram. Quite frankly, it's everywhere. Why? Because anime, as a medium, has helped me.
It's time for some more first impressions of this season's anime! This was a show I had been waiting literally years to watch and I'm so glad it's finally here. The show in question? Why, Ensemble Stars!, of course! Ensemble Stars! is a series about high school male idols, based off a video of the same name.
The first few weeks of the Summer 2019 season are now over, so it's time for me to give you guys my opinions so far. Today, I'm going to be talking about Dr. Stone - the sci-fi adventure series by TMS Entertainment.
It's catch-up time! Finally, the last of my Fruits Basket catch up posts. It's taken me longer than I had liked, but we're finally caught up in time for the next episode. Like last time, this will probably be quite the long post...
During my third anniversary posts, I mentioned that I wanted to do some collaborations as I've never really done them before. Well, the time has come to introduce my first ever collaboration! We wanted to write something based on what we both enjoyed and what better than Fruits Basket?
Buckle up, folks. Maybe grab a drink or a snack or something, because this is going to be a long one. I've finally been able to catch up with seasonal anime lately and it's definitely time to catch you all up on my opinons of Fruits Basket. (Not that they've changed.)
It’s that time of the season again where we all take a look at the upcoming seasonal anime and pick what we’ll be watching! I realise I only made a return to seasonal anime a couple of seasons ago with The Promised Neverland, but I think I’m going to adjust my approach once again.
Judging an anime before I even watch it has been something I have denied doing in the past. "I don't do that!" I would protest when the topic would come up in conversation. Yet, having explored various series recently, I can say for sure that the past me was lying not only to the people she was talking to, but she was lying to herself as well. So, I'm going to take this as a chance to reflect on a couple of shows that I - and others - have judged a bit too much before watching.
