Anime: Tasogare Otome x Amnesia

I know, there have been a lot of book posts lately, but that doesn’t mean I’ve neglected watching anime. I was just waiting for the animes to finish their run on television before I started watching. So as the Spring season comes to a close, I’ve finally started watching. The first anime that ended (that … Continue reading

Book: Never trust a rabbit

  Never trust a rabbit. They may look like a child’s toy but they eat your crops. With a title like that, it’s no wonder it piqued my interest. However, before  reviewing the book, I have a confession to make. I don’t usually read short stories. I like my books long and epic, I naturally pick up … Continue reading

Book: The Ladies of Grace Adieu

This book by Susanna Clarke is set in the same world she crafted for Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. I loved the setting of her novel, , but I remember not enjoying the story as much. This book of short stories however is just perfect! I think she writes the loveliest short stories that are fun to … Continue reading

30 days of books

So I’ve done the anime version of this more than a year ago, so I figured that now, since I’m in my book reading phase, would be a good time to do the book version. So here’s the list: Day 01 – The best book you read last year Day 02 – A book that … Continue reading

Book: Japanese Tales of Mystery & Imagination

My fascination with Japan is not limited to anime and manga. I absolutely love the food, the culture and fashion, the country itself and more recently the books. I have yet to learn Japanese, although years of anime watching has given me a basic understanding of certain often used words. Still, to be able to read … Continue reading

Anime: CardCaptor Sakura Season 2

The plot thickens in the 2nd season of Cardcaptor Sakura. As the collection of cards come to an end, it becomes quite apparent that something is afoot. The atmosphere has changed slightly from season 1. It’s much darker and mysterious. Everyone seems to have a hidden motive or agenda and the audience is left to figure … Continue reading

Book: Eragon

I read this book when it first came out, way back when there was a huge furor over Christopher Paolini. The boy who had written a novel and had it published. It was quite epic at the time and I must have enjoyed the book enough then, because the desire to read the sequels was … Continue reading

Anime: CardCaptor Sakura: The Movie

Set between season 1 and season 2, the first movie in the Cardcaptor Sakura franchise is set in Hong Kong. I admit, I don’t really have anything much to say about the movie. It was average and even the costume this time wasn’t very nice. The only plus side was that we really got to see … Continue reading

Anime: CardCaptor Sakura Season 1

There’s something nostalgic about rewatching old childhood series. For me this is all the more so with regards to Cardcaptor Sakura. It was the first manga I read and fell in love with as well as one of the first animes I was really obsessed over. I guess you could say Cardcaptor Sakura inducted me into the world … Continue reading

Anime: Hanasaku Iroha

It’s been too long! Too long I say! It feels REALLY strange not writing anything, although it was for good reason. However, thesis writing didn’t stop me from watching anime. I managed to watch Hanasaku Iroha, and 2 seasons and 1 movie of cardcaptor sakura, but more about that later. For today, we’ll be looking at Hanasaku … Continue reading
