Anime: Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai

It’s been awhile since I’ve watched an anime that made me cry buckets in almost every episode and AnoHana did just that. It has a ridiculously long name for an anime title and the name doesn’t fit into the anime in any way until you get to the last episode, but still it’s one tear-inducing anime. I … Continue reading

Anime: Kimi ni Todoke 2nd Season: Kataomoi

This is almost like a bridging episode from the 1st season to the 2nd season. It serves as a pretty good recap for the 1st season from Kurumi’s point of view and eases us into the 2nd season of Kimi ni Todoke. It wasn’t bad, perhaps because it’s been awhile since I’ve watched the first season and also … Continue reading

Anime: The Case Files of Young Kindaichi Movie

I will never tire of Kindaichi. I love the mystery. And this movie was no exception. This is the 2nd time kindiachi visits the opera house on the island and he should by now know what to expect, a spate of serial killings similar to that of the opera. There’s no surprise here, but as usual it’s the … Continue reading

Anime: K-on!

I was hesitant to watch this particular anime, firstly because it was in the MOE genre, and being a girl, I can’t say I appreciate it as much. Secondly, it was so hugely popular that to be honest I got a bit scared, I haven’t really enjoyed all the mainstream favourites with the exception of perhaps FMA:B. So it was … Continue reading

Anime: Hikaru No Go new year special and Journey to the North Star Cup

Okay, so I finally finished off all the Hikaru no Go stuff, after almost 10 years since I watched the original. Wow, it’s been a long time. But as I said previously, it’s fun getting back to old stuff. The Hikaru no go special was a recap episode for the 1st 12 episodes, which was good, because it reminded me … Continue reading

Writing reviews

It seems a little late to be saying this, but I’ve never ever written reviews before. Sure i know for myself what i like about an anime or a book, but to articulate that and to be critical (not biased?) is foreign to me. I know for a fact that I can’t be objective, there will … Continue reading

Anime: Hikaru no Go Special (ep 64 alt)

It’s been awhile since i’ve watched this particular series and truth be told i can’t remember what happened in the original episode. But, having said that, it’s good fun to return to old series. :) I think I might wait till I’ve watched the other special as well as the movie before giving comment. It’s … Continue reading
