I was browsing through various different anime sites trying to see what was worth watching, when I stumbled upon Wan Sheng Jie. As soon as I noticed the art style, I knew I'd like this series and my alarm bells were ringing for this really was a hidden gem that I was slowly uncovering.
It's that time of the season again! Here are my seasonal choices for Winter 2020. What are you watching next season? Do we have any in common?
I'm pretty sure we all have a list like this - a list of the shows that we have absolutely hated. I realise I can be quite pessimistic about shows anyway, but this is a list of shows that I absolutely do not want to revisit. Often, it's also a list of shows that I don't even want to talk about, meaning this is a somewhat rare chance to delve into the bottom of the barrel.
What an experience this movie is. Violence Voyager follows Bobby and Akkun as they decide to embark on an adventure. On their adventure, they come across a theme park and, as any pair of high school students would, they decide to check it out. Unfortunately for them, things don't turn out to be happy-go-lucky.
The first Fullmetal Alchemist anime adapation was one of my first anime. I loved every second of it, completely obsessed over both Edward Elric and Roy Mustang. It was the one shounen anime I had fallen in love with. From that moment on, Fullmetal has always had a special place in my heart… even if it did take me a good few years after that to actually watch Brotherhood. When I finally did watch Brotherhood, I obsessed. I binged the show so hard, I was sad when it was over. But luckily for me, there was even more Fullmetal content to love. There are also two movies – The Conqueror of Shamballa and The Sacred Star of Milos.
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.
I don't really know why I haven't touched many sports anime as of late. They certainly appeal to me and I have had every intention to watch them, but for some reason, I just... don't. Perhaps I just needed something to pump me up and motivate me and if that's the case, then, Kuroko no Basket certainly worked its magic.
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.
Boy, I love a death game scenario, so I was quite hyped to get reading this and I am so glad I did. The synopsis sounds a little crazy, sure, I get that, but the first chapter is written so well making me hooked from the start. And as the story progressed, I was obsessed with finding out what the next game was or what the next twist in the story was.
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!
