After weeks of nominating and voting, it's time to reveal the winners of the first ever AGAHA Awards! This has been such a fun and exciting little project for me, so I want to thank everyone who got involved!
It's that time of the season again! Here are my seasonal choices for Winter 2020. What are you watching next season? Do we have any in common?
I'm pretty sure we all have a list like this - a list of the shows that we have absolutely hated. I realise I can be quite pessimistic about shows anyway, but this is a list of shows that I absolutely do not want to revisit. Often, it's also a list of shows that I don't even want to talk about, meaning this is a somewhat rare chance to delve into the bottom of the barrel.
What an experience this movie is. Violence Voyager follows Bobby and Akkun as they decide to embark on an adventure. On their adventure, they come across a theme park and, as any pair of high school students would, they decide to check it out. Unfortunately for them, things don't turn out to be happy-go-lucky.
It's been a while, but Anime For All is making a return! In this edition, I'm looking at movies that I believe that both veteran fans and newbies to anime will enjoy!
So you’ve heard a lot about Dragon Ball and you may have seen a few episodes. But you don’t know where to start with the series. It’s like receiving the world’s biggest burger and not knowing where to bite first. DON’T WORRY I’m going to be your guide and show you how to eat this … Continue reading A Newbies Guide to Dragon Ball
Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin (or Midnight Occult Civil Servants) is a supernatural mystery anime that aired during the Spring 2019 season. Produced by LIDENFILMS (who also produced Koi to Uso and Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo), the series follows the latest recruit of Shinjuku Ward Office's Nighttime Regional Relations Department - Miyako Arata. If you're looking for a show that's quick-paced and has lots of fighting scenes, this isn't the show for you. It's also not the show you're looking for if you want a show with the greatest animation you've ever seen. However, Mayonaka is a show that's still underappreciated for what it is - an easy-to-watch supernatural mystery show.
That's right, it's time for the traditional slightly-late-but-still-midseason reflection post, where I comment on the shows I'm still watching and talk about the shows that I've dropped. Overall, I do think Summer 2019 has been quite good! Although, there may be one show that I wouldn't recommend...
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.
