Ongoing || Spring 2016 Reactions: Part 2

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable. I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH YOU GUYS. WHY IS IT SO UNDERAPPRECIATED IN THE WEST?!?! Diamond is Unbreakable brings a new set of characters to the JoJo universe and I love everyone already; even Joturo from the last arc is more likable. There’s also been some fresh, very…

The Spring 2016 season is nearly over; show are beginning to wrap up now. I’ve dropped some shows as time has gone by, but these are the ones I hope to finish within the next two weeks.

Jamie’s Summer 2015 Star Ratings: Part 1

I had so much fun this anime summer; I just want everyone to know that up front because I SERIOUSLY HAD SO MUCH FUN.  I watched 18 shows front to back (please don’t ask me how, a magician’s secrets are sacred) along with 5 shorts! What a great diverse selection of genres I got. Here we are, though,…

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…

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…

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time || A Weekend Flick

This was a movie I saw before I liked anime and I wasn’t too impressed the first time. However, I decided to rewatch it several months ago to see if I would like it more. And I did! The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is actually an exceptional film, being smart, funny, and relatable. This film was made by…

I’ve wanted to do this post series since the blog’s beginning, so I’m excited to put the idea in action! In honor of Mother’s Day, the first entry in this series will be one of the…

Rolling☆Girls || A Mini Review

I had high hopes for Rolling☆Girls at the beginning of the Winter Season… those first two episodes really were amazing. So, it is with disappoint that I must say that Rolling☆Girls’s plot completely unraveled for most of the show, leaving me baffled and frustrated. It was, however, very pretty to look at (see gallery below.) Rolling☆Girls Adventure |…

Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!

Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! was absolutely ridiculous, but that’s why it worked. I had the great pleasure of getting to watch this week to week and I’ll definitely be rewatching it in the future! The magical girl genre is the perfect place to have an opposite sex parody and the results are ABSOLUTE…

Currently Viewing: “Ongoing || Winter Season”

The Winter Season of 2015 has begun–my first one!–and my watch list of new, ongoing anime shows has doubled, especially compared to the three shows I kept up in the Fall Season of 2014. Besides the brand new, I’m still consistently watching Your Lie in April and Parasyte. I’ve even picked up Yona of the Dawn, but…

Princess Jellyfish

The rom-com Princess Jellyfish is my current favorite anime–I’ve happily rewatched it multiple times! Today, I got to share a few reasons why it’s my favorite anime in a review over on James’s blog J and J Productions, which is fitting since he got me into anime in the first place. This review will only be…
