The Boy and the Beast || Impressions

  While visiting my bestest friend James last month, he and I watched The Boy and the Beast together in sub. I’d heard some things about it–that it just didn’t compare to Wolf Children, similar things like that (and to be honest, is that even fair?. WOLF CHILDREN IS WOLF CHILDREN. IT’S TOO GOOD TO…

Food Wars || A Review

Easily a top ten show of this entire year, Food Wars took the awesome elements of classic shounen action and melded it into the competitive, scientific world of a top-notch culinary school, displaying the guts and smarts of the students determined to be the best in the world of cooking. And IT. WAS. AWESOME. As this story is…

Assassination Classroom (and why we’re not friends.)

This is less of a review, and more of an explanation to why Assassination Classroom and I did not get along during the Winter and Spring seasons–we danced a dance of surprise and disappoint, we did. Please don’t take personal offense, fans, I’ll try to share my conflicted feelings as nicely as possible. 😉 For…

Yatterman Night || A Mini Review

So, Yatterman Night from the Winter 2015 season was a pretty good show, with an interesting sense of humor and intriguing commentary on what symbolism can mean to a nation. This was a treat to watch, even though it was a tad hard getting settled in for the ride. At least the lead character was an adorable…

A week or so ago, I finished Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin. While I had a few bones to pick with the plot, it was overall an amazing adventure worth it’s hype. I fell in love with a few pieces of music from the soundtrack, so those are the ones I wish to highlight this…

Kotoura-san | Episode 5 | Subtitled I’ve been really enjoying this one. The first episode gave the tragic back story of our born-with-mind-reading-powers, Kotoura, and then we follow her as she slowly makes friends who embrace her for who she is. It’s actually an enjoyable romantic-comedy/drama, with a fun variety of characters who are so cute….
