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!
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.
This will only be a brief review, but it's been one that should have appeared on this blog a long time ago. I first wrote about this show and the awkward high school crushes over a year ago, after all. Did I end up liking the show, though?
Don't get me wrong, the story itself is pretty good. This is certainly not your typical harem show by any means, for the show isn't all too predictable and does contain some welcomed plot twists. For the most part, the story was paced at an acceptable speed, but I do think that some elements of the story weren't exactly needed.
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?
This week, we’re looking at a genre with less options than most, but the characters have plenty of options... That's right - it's the harem genre.I've mentioned a couple of good harem shows already in my Anime For All series but, with a post dedicated to the genre, what am I recommending this week?
Now, after finally getting down to seeing Keijo for the first time, I can finally share my opinion on this. I may come across as ‘salty’. I may even come across as being ‘your typical feminist’. But hey, this is my blog. Regardless, let me give you my two cents on this topic.
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!
