One-Punch Man Review

Hello, guys, it’s Jamie! Today my best friend in the whole wide world is guest posting for me here today. His name is James (He blogs a J and J Productions) and he got me into anime back in 2014. We’ve been online friends for years, even doing a few podcasts together, and we recently…

Jamie’s Favorite 2015 Shows || Top Ten!

Including shorts, I watched 60 shows to full completion from 2015’s seasonal anime this year! Just wow, guys! I had such a great time doing it this year, too! A huge thank you to my best friend for helping me choose what shows to watch and talking about them with me each week! For it…

Jamie’s 2015 Favorites || Honorable Mentions

2015 has come and gone! It was my first full year of watching simulcast shows and it was quite the experience. Half of the fun was my weekly Skype calls with my best friend to discuss each week’s new episodes together though! XD There were some excellent shows this year and overall I had a…

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…

Sound! Euphonium || A Review

Wow this was a fantastic anime! The realism, the music, the drama, the animation: it was always a treat to tune in to Sound! Euphonium each week last season. I would love to watch it again some time! I found immense enjoyment in this show, and I hope I can communicate my love for this…

K: Missing Kings

In the upcoming fall season, the anime K is getting a sequel. I put some time into watching K for this reason…and also because the show is quite popular, from what I can tell. I decided not to review the first series itself for a couple of reason though: it wasn’t actually great. The animation…

Ongoing || Summer 2015 First Impressions: Final Part

Part 1: Summer 2015 First Impressions Part 2: Summer 2015 First Impressions Today I’m covering the last of the summer shows I’m watching, numbers 13 through 17! Oh, and I cover the three shows I’ve dropped too. 🙂 Himouto! Umaru-chan | 6 episodes At school and away from the house, Umaru-chan is gorgeous, the perfect…

Re-Kan! || A Review

I consider this supernatural comedy the unappreciated show of the 2015 Spring season; it’s animation does look a little old and the slower pace probably made it seem forgettable compared to other spring shows like Blood Blockade Battlefront, Food Wars, Sound! Euphonium, and DanMachi. However, in a quieter season, Re-Kan! would have gotten more of the love…

Kiki’s Delivery Service || A Weekend Flick

Kiki’s Delivery Service is one of Studio Ghibli’s most well-loved films–I think that’s pretty safe for me to say. 😀 I came to appreciate Kiki in a roundabout way, as it wasn’t love at first sight. I thought it was a decent film at first, but I didn’t connect with it–I was sick in bed…

5 Centimeters Per Second || A Weekend Flick

Today’s review is short, because this film is pretty short! XD Created by the same director who orchestrated the gorgeous The Garden of Words, 5 Centimeters Per Second is artistically gorgeous film about distance, love, and loss. I’ve heard this film mentioned a lot; many people love it, many people are confused by it, everyone admits the animation…

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…

Jamie’s Spring 2015 Star Ratings

I’m by no means a critic. While I like to exercise critical thinking, I also love my entertainment to be just that: Entertainment–it’s good to have balance! With this in mind, I’m tackling the big job of rounding up of everything I watched from the Spring 2015 season and give them a rating.  This is the…
