Working as an ESL teacher at a university in China... you don't really get much time off. Work is constantly there. So, once I learned about the fact that I was going to get an entire week off with no teaching and hardly any students to deal with, it's safe to say I was quite happy. During this spring break, I've managed to somehow fit time in for eleven different shows and I have thoughts for all of them...
Although I had some doubts, it turns out Death Parade is a show like no other. It's entertaining, sure, but it also makes you think deeply about, well, everything. Purgatory is where Death Parade is set, albeit taking the form of a bar called QuinDecim where the dead come, not only to drink cocktails, but to be judged by the arbiter. Should they go to the void? Or, should they be reincarnated?
This time around, we're looking into one of my favourite genres - mystery. Why is it one of my favourites? Well, you never really know what you're in for. All sorts of plot twists could happen in a mystery anime and that's why I'm super excited to share three of my favourite mystery anime with you today!
Adventure and action quite often go hand-in-hand, but that's not always the case! "Adventure" itself is such a vague term and it can mean absolutely anything - after all, anything can be an adventure, right?
I review yet another of Satoshi Kon's masterpieces - Millennium Actress. A bit of history, a bit of romance and loads of drama - this film has a bit of everything!
Because even Steven Moffat can't write time travel this cute. Move out of the way, Peter Capaldi, Makoto Konno is here!
