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!
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?
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.
We are currently halfway through this season and I'm really surprised about the quality this time around. Usually, seasons are filled with quite a few mediocre shows, but Spring 2019 really does seem like a top season. Regardless, being halfway through the season means it's time to reflect on the past six/seven weeks and begin to form an opinion on the shows I've been watching. Some of these shows really have surprised me and, uh... not always for the better.
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.
It's been an entire year since I've last done a "What am I watching?" post and that's because I've been avoiding seasonal anime so I could catch up on my backlog a little bit better. This all changed with The Promised Neverland, though and, admittedly, having something to look forward to watching every week really did wonders for my mood as well, as trivial as that sounds, so I've decided to get back into the swing of seasonal anime! Woo!
I really do like finding cute little romantic stories. Something easy to watch, something wholesome to watch after a stressful day or after watching something not-so wholesome. So, when I found Sono Toki, Kanojo wa. last season, I thought I had hit the jackpot. It's simple and just nice.
Last year, I decided that it was about time that I actually took time to sit down and watch what seems to be a lot of people's favorite childhood anime - Sailor Moon. My expectations, realistically, were all over the place. On the one hand, I was expecting great things. A lot of people in the anime community praise Sailor Moon so much, even as adults, and there weren't many people I knew who slated it. Were they not just using their nostalgia to create their opinions? It turns out, no. They weren't. And, watching it for the first time as a 22-year-old, I think the series is definitely one filled with important lessons.
Devils Line is probably one of the only anime from this year (so far) that I probably stand on the minority side of things. A lot of people haven't given Devils Line a particularly good review and, although I can understand why people may not like it, I have to disagree completely. Move out of the way Twilight, a better vampire love story is in town.
I, like many other girls who were a teenager during the time where Twilight and Vampire Diaries were at their peak, have a soft spot for vampires. Ever since that craze, I've always been partial to some vampire fiction. And, well, Vampire Knight was no different. The question is, can humans and vampires co-exist?
