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…

Final Episode of Blood Blockade Battlefront is Coming!

The final episode of Kekkai Sensen, aka Blood Blockade Battlefront, has FINALLY been given a release date of October 4th! HALLELUJAH. BBB was one of Spring’s best shows, complete with wacky and serious elements and a very enjoyable characters (my Spring crush was Zapp!) Tragically the final episode was delayed, leaving me and everyone in…

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

Eyecatches of Spring 2015

A Happy Birthday to Yamato!

Ore Monogatari is my favorite show of the spring season, for a million reasons, a huge one being that it is a phenomenal, emotionally genuine, adorable love story. Today is the birthday of one of the main characters, Yamato, Takeo’s first girlfriend. The last three episodes have even been about her birthday, so I decided there was no way I…

Spring 2015 Mid-Season Part 1 Is It Wrong to Try To Pick Up Girls in A Dungeon | Episode 7 This show is pretty darn good. I love our main characters Bell and Hestia–they’re both adorable!

Ore Monogatari | Episode 7 Yep, it jumped over Blockade to first place on my spring list! It’s the cutest most exceptional piece of shoujo crap I’ve ever seen and it warms me to my toes. And when I mean crap I mean best shoujo show ever. Takeo and Yamato are flipping adorable together and…
