Too Many Feels and Tears: Season 2 of Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East

Oh my, Oh my. So I went back to watch Season 2 soon after finishing Season 1 and I don’t think I’ve ever had such an intense workout before? I swear my heart was about ready to pop out of my mouth and I probably screamed a couple dozen times at 1:47AM

Season 2 continues off where we left off in Season 1, which was Shino and Sousuke finding the eight gems of Princess Fuse’s Dog Companions. Our characters are starting to draw connections between their flower shaped birthmarks and their backstories, making finding the rest of the Companions slightly easier Continue reading Too Many Feels and Tears: Season 2 of Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East

Season 1 of Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East (By Creator Miyuki Abe from Super Lovers)

Hey guys! So the other day I decided to start watching some anime again because yes, I don’t think I’ve watched much anime in some…3 months possibly? Maybe even more. I’ve actually been sticking to manga and novels

But instead of watching some of the newer stuff, I found myself checking out series like Aldnoah Zero, which I reviewed in 2015 and then I ended up doing some episode by episode impressions for it (2017). I also ended up watching Hakkenden and I was originally only going to watch 3 or 4 episodes…but by the time I checked my clock it was already 5AM, I hadn’t slept a wink and I’d finished season 1!

The first season of Hakkenden is 13 episodes long and is about a boy named Shino who was supposed to die when he was 13, however, his will to survive was so strong that he was given a choice to save himself and the people he loved. Five years later and he’s doing seemingly well with Hamaji, his younger sister, and Sousuke, his older brother/guardian, if you exclude the small fact that Shino hasn’t physically aged since he was saved and is now the bearer of the demonic sword Murasame  Continue reading Season 1 of Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East (By Creator Miyuki Abe from Super Lovers)

Yuri on Ice episode 11: the end is near…

OK GUYS, so I wasn’t going to post anything because I’m overall a lazy person but I have so many feels right now over this episode!! I mean, I usually do but this one especially has my heart racing and possibly not in a good way.

Spoilers ahead for YOI ep 1- 11 because who can actually contain themselves?! Also, I’m going to be jumping around because I can’t get my thoughts in order right now

I’m going to assume the whole YOI fandom has already made their assumptions about Victor’s feelings from episode 10 and BOY I am right there with everyone! Continue reading Yuri on Ice episode 11: the end is near…

Haikyuu S3: The New Champions!

/SCREAMS INTO THE NIGHT SKY/

It’s happened! I’ve gone and watched the whole of Haikyuu, 60 episodes in some 5 days. And It Was Awesome. You guys have no idea how happy I am that my wait was not long since I started watching s3 when there were 9 episodes and Friday was only 2 days away. Plus, I cheated and went to look at the manga to see how the season would end because I needed to know so bad! Possibly the worst cliffhanger e-v-e-r

Like always, spoilers for Season 1 and Season 2 are fair game! Continue reading Haikyuu S3: The New Champions!
