I reall love the Real Neat Blog Award. I've been nominated for it a few times now, but every time I get nominated, I also get some really unique questions that I just love answering. This time around, I was nominated by Geeknabe.
I realise that many people have already spoken about the last decade. Bloggers, AniTubers, even companies have shared their favourite anime of the last decade. I may be late to the party, but it's better late than never, right? It's time for some nostalgia!
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.
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...
I always get a little nervous when beginning to review a movie and this one is no different. I really do hope that I can give it the recognition it deserves, particularly as a cult classic. I knew it should be a film that I would like, but I never expected to be so drawn into a story, so drawn into the film, as quickly as I have been.
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.
It's quite rare to come across one, but sometimes you stumble an absolute masterpiece. For me, personally, this has taken quite a while to find, but at last - here it is, in the form of a beautiful romance. If you're wanting a cute romance story that covers the theme of LGBT relationships, I'm yet to see a better example than this.
I'm going to be giving you guys some anime recommendations from the Kids genre! Don't be rolling your eyes, we're all guilty of watching Pokémon or Digimon from time to time in order to reminisce. But, let's ignore them for the time being and let's focus on some of the lesser known children's anime!
