What an easier post would be is "5 Anime That Didn't Make Me Cry" because there are a lot fewer anime that I haven't cried at, that's for sure. I'm just a big crybaby, what can I say? Now, because I cry at literally everything, some of these, I feel, are probably predictable. Some others? Probably not. But I certainly have my reasons for all of them.
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.
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?
Idol Jihen is, as the title suggests, an idol show that was an original story created by MAPPA and Studio VOLN. For many, the synopsis of the show will sound ridiculous. I get that. I'll be honest, though, it was partly this that made me want to watch it in the first place.
"I don't even know why I'm planning to watch this - I disliked the first season so much. Oh well." Without further ado, let's get onto the list of shows that I'll have an eye next season!
Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni (In This Corner of the World) is an historical drama film directed by Sunao Katabuchi (Black Lagoon, Kiki's Delivery Service). Set in 1944, it tells the story of Suzu Urano, a young girl who loves to paint, as she moves to the town of Kure to marry Shuusaku Houjou - a young clerk who works at the local naval base.
It's time to try out a new style of post! (New for me, anyway...) For the Summer 2017 season, I've decided to do individual first impression posts, in an attempt to give you guys more opinions on the shows I'm watching! And what better way to introduce this new style than with arguably the weirdest show from this season?
I talk about my first impressions of six series from this season including 'Idol Jihen' and 'Spiritpact'!
