Anime: Minami-ke Omatase

Sorry to keep you waiting indeed! This OVA bundled with the 10th volume of the manga comes almost 3 years after the last season. I have missed the Minami family more than I realized and watching this has reminded me of all the little quirks each sister has and why I love them so much. … Continue reading

Anime: Pale Cocoon

  This has been on to-watch list for a long time, ever since I watched Time of Eve. It has the same graphic style, although Time of Eve is more recent and more polished. I enjoyed how this story flowed, I think it displayed the history of what had happened to earth brilliantly, while at … Continue reading

Anime: Tabisuru Nuigurumi: Traveling Daru

I was browsing through the Crunchyroll site and I came across this gem under the slice of life category. It’s a simple and (almost) wordless short just 10 mins long, but it speaks volumes and is an absolute beauty to watch.   It tells the story of a little soft toy who gets left behind … Continue reading

Anime: Hyouka: Motsubeki Mono wa

The OVA  which translates to Hyouka: You can’t escape. It’s your usual fanservice episode, with the cast at the pool (naturally, where else would they go in summer?). If you know me well, or read enough of my reviews. Then you know that I wouldn’t like this episode. I understand how fanservice boosts audience numbers and … Continue reading

Anime: Tamayura

I’m not sure how an OVA like this managed to pass me by.   I first heard of Tamayura when the anime series came out in 2011, but it was only recently when I was looking for anime to watch that I came across the OVA that aired in 2010. Tamayura is a beautiful anime … Continue reading

Just 12 minutes long it documents a fight between our favourite couple as well as Yuiko’s trip to Paris to visit Chiaki. It also shows a … Continue reading

Anime: Nodame Cantabile OVA

The first OVA from the Nodame Cantabile series, set after the second season. You’d be forgiven if you couldn’t recognize the main character of this OVA. It has been an entire season since we’ve seen him, and even then it wasn’t as if he was a major player in the first season. Who am I … Continue reading

Anime: Prince of tennis: The National Tournament

I was inspired recently to finish up a particular Prince of Tennis fanfiction that has been sitting in my computer and rewritten 3 times. It’s currently my goal to finish the fic as I finish my last semester of studies here at the ANU. Anyway, what better way to do research and get in touch with … Continue reading

Anime: Black★Rock Shooter

Black★Rock Shooter started life as a single original character design before getting its own song and a vocaloid PV and now it’s very own OVA. There was a lot of hype when the OVA was rumoured to be coming, and no wonder, the PV was/is very popular. Still, I wondered what I should expect before watching … Continue reading
