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?
Stop that sound?: Kono Oto Tomare! Season 1 Review
Music is a vital tool for bringing people together. It's a way of communication that we've had in our lives for centuries. And that message is very much prominent in Kono Oto Tomare!, a music-themed drama that aired in Spring 2019. Produced by Platinum Vision (the studio behind Servamp and Devils Line), it follows the daily life of a high school koto club - a koto being the national instrument of Japan.
Competing Idols: Ensemble Stars! First Impressions
It's time for some more first impressions of this season's anime! This was a show I had been waiting literally years to watch and I'm so glad it's finally here. The show in question? Why, Ensemble Stars!, of course! Ensemble Stars! is a series about high school male idols, based off a video of the same name.
Summer 2019: What am I watching?
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.
Spring 2019: Am I still watching?
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.
Who are the Generation of Miracles?: Kuroko no Basket Review
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.
5 Anime That Have Made Me Cry
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.
Spring 2019: What am I watching?
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!
A Creepy Compilation: Ito Junji – Collection Review
In the light of day and in the dead of night, mysterious horrors await in the darkest shadows of every corner. Ito Junji: Collection is a compilation series of horror stories that were originally written by Ito Junji - a popular mangaka known for his stories and art style, often making him one of the most talented horror creators. However, perhaps I should have just gone for the medium it was intended to be enjoyed as.
The Cutest Monster Girls: Demi-chan wa Kataritai Review
Imagine a world where humans and demi-humans co-exist. They go to work, they go to school... I have seen a lot of shows, that just don't go into detail about the characters. They introduce them and that's that. That's their personality, we're going to stick with that for 12 episodes with absolutely no development whatsoever. This is where Demi-chan is different.
