The Kuroshitsuji movie is based off the Luxury Liner arc of the manga. I was quite excited to finally watch the movie, but, unfortunately, it wasn't what I expected at all. I'm assuming a part of my dissatisfaction with the movie comes from the fact that the Book of Atlantic arc isn't exactly a favourite of mine in the manga, but I also found a couple of things about the movie that really annoyed me, regardless of my preferences from the manga.
This season, for me, will probably work like the last, where I explicitly said I wouldn't be watching any seasonal anime. Last season, it was mostly due to finishing university, graduating and getting ready to start working. For this season, my reasoning is just the mere fact I don't really have the time to keep up with seasonal anime. And regional differences.
Now that the Summer 2018 season is finally over, it's time to see how accurate I actually was in my picks. I'm going to be going through reviews and looking at scores and statistics in order to get an overview on the anime I selected in my What To Watch post and see how accurate I was in my predictions.
I'm arguably a little late on this for the Summer 2018 season has already started, but it's time for me to share my latest seasonal anime recommendations. So, what has caught my eye for this season?
It's that time of the season where I reflect on the shows I began watching this season! I thought Winter 2018 had gone quick, but Spring seems to have gone a lot quicker? Not only that, but I've actually managed to stay up-to-date with some series! (Makes a change, huh?)
Creativity is, of course, subjective. What makes something a masterpiece to someone, may be a weird artsy disaster for someone else. If a single collection of anime was to make this divide apparent - it's Genius Party.
It's that time of the season again where we all avidly look towards the upcoming season and plan our anime schedules for the next three months. Winter 2018 has gone by so quickly... I can't believe I'm already writing a post for Spring 2018!
This week, we're looking at another popular genre, but one that a lot of you are probably familiar with already - fantasy. Like, for example, the drama genre, the fantasy genre has endless possibilities, making way for lots of great storylines. Match this with some great characters and some nice animation and you're good to go!
Ecchi is a Japanese word that is used to describe, in slang, "playfully sexual actions". It doesn't take a genius to figure out just how many anime with the ecchi tag there are, but with these shows, I've picked a variety of different storylines in hopes of trying to appeal to different audiences!
This time, I'm kicking things off with Toji no Miko - an action fantasy show that is a Studio Gokumi (Tsurezure Children, Kiniro Mosaic) original where an evil creature named Aratama is attacking people and a group of Miko (shrine maidens) have been exorcising this creature using the power of swords since ancient times.
