Hey guys! So I hear the 2017 anime lineup is already out and that it’s starting soon. Figured I’d finally get off my “anime break” now
This season I haven’t watched anything because nothing caught my interest. Even on social media I haven’t heard anything (YOI is still dominating my tl). The only series I’ve heard about is the one with Tanya the Salaryman, but that’s only because my brother likes it and has been telling me to watch it (apparently just one episode will get me hooked)
But other than that, did anyone watch something interesting this season? I know I started Super Lovers but haven’t gotten around to finishing
As for the next season, here’s what I’m planning to watch! Continue reading
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
I was debating on how long I should wait before I wrote this post up but figured now would be a good time! I’m going to leave YOI for last because I already wrote up a quick “impression” when the first episode came out. And believe me, I will be posting more about it even before the series ends! Plus, we do gotta leave the best for last right? 😉
I’ll be writing these impressions with the assumption you guys have at least checked out the first episode so there might be spoilers for at least that Continue reading
And the skating anime with the hot bishies is out and everyone I know is fangasaming over it or mourning the fact that they can’t watch right this instant!
Yuri on Ice follows our main character Yuri Katsuki, a 23 year old who has been ice skating since he was a child, as he tries to win at the Grand Prix Finale in hopes of standing on equal grounds with his childhood hero Victor Nikiforov, the
very lewd and proclaimed ‘living legend.’ After losing in the GPX, however, Yuri ends up going home, completely depressed and not sure of what to do next.
And it doesn’t help that Victor has shown up at his family’s hot spring inn after his friend’s children uploaded a video of him copying one of Victor’s routines! (or does it? 😉) Continue reading
And we are now slowly transitioning into Fall!
Honestly, I really want summer to be over with already. I want to be able to go outside without getting roasted and then having an itching fest because I was out for too long. Or finally being able to use my dozens of sweaters I own. Or trying out the new pants I got. All that fun stuff. Unfortunately, summer is holding fast and my only consolation is that I have new anime to watch soon :”D
Honestly, the title isn’t all that original and neither is the vampire idea so why do I want to watch this?! Because it’s your typical vampire stuff, it always ALWAYS catches me. I really want to see what they do with this and just with this image I’m already wanting. JUST LOOK. There’s a white haired kid! White haired guys are my weakness, I must watch! Reading the summary reminds me of Owari but hopefully it turns out better than that. Also, make sure you all don’t go without sleep for more than a week, we don’t need a vampire apocalypse right now! (or maybe I do, there is that test coming up soon…) Continue reading
And finally I’m down to the last part of this spring first impressions!
For some reason I felt a lot of these had…certain undertones and I’m not sure if that’s because of the genre or what (yes I’m talking about the first two). Considering my tastes run more along the BL side, I did prefer one over the other. Of course, I did take species into consideration so…yeah. There’s other stuff I noticed but I mentioned it in my impression, haha
Kumamiko: Girl Meets Bear
I saw this show on Funimation and thought the art looked really nice, so I thought I’d try it out. Part of me figured I might not like it enough to continue it because it just had that style that I don’t usually check out. What is that style? I’m not sure but I’ve seen it a lot in slice of life shows and shows with a lot of girls in it, haha!
Originally, I only planned to watch one episode but I was curious enough and ended up watching almost 3! Kumamiko is a story about a country girl who is tired of living in the mountains and she’s decided to change her life by going to high school in the city! Except there’s one problem…she has to get permission from Natsu, the talking bear she lives with. After much tantrum throwing and persistence, Natsu relents on the condition that Machi undergoes intense studying so that she can function in this new world. Continue reading
Remember I mentioned there might be a part 3 to these first impression posts? Well, as of right this instant, there will definitely be another! You see, I got two recommendations for shows in Part 1 and I thought I’d check them out.
Both Daiyamanga and Alex recommended I check out Sakamoto desu ga, and Mika recommended Koutetsujou no Kabaneri! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find Mika’s recommendation on Crunchyroll or Funimation so I tried to find out where I could watch it. Apparently it’s being streamed by Amazon (what??) so I wasn’t able to include it on this post.
However, I most definitely will on the next one (when my brother is done watching his TSM stuff and I can use his account)! Continue reading
Hey guys! So it’s been quite a while since I last posted any first impressions or reviews and I’d like to remedy that through a spring 2016 first impression!
I know I tried to do this last season but I only really ended up watching two shows: Erased and Dimension W. I will (hopefully) be writing a post up for each in the future so wait for those! In the meantime, it’s about time I got started on the Spring Season 🙂
Before I start on the impression Ren is voiced by the same actress who did Ritsuka from Loveless!! I’m fangirling right now ヾ(≧∇≦*)ゝ As I was listening to him I couldn’t help but feel that the voice was familiar so I went to MAL and bam! It’s Ritsuka~
Now then, I really enjoyed this first episode of Super Lovers! We get to meet Haru who went down to Canada to visit his birth mother for the summer after he got a call saying she was on the verge of death. Of course, when he arrives he finds her perfectly healthy but there’s one more addition to the household. It seems his mother has taken in a boy named Ren who is more dog than human, and it’s up to Haru to civilize him! Continue reading
So I’ve gotten a few people ask me about my spring anime lineup and I figured I’d write up a post about it now. I usually do but this time I’m rather behind, constantly forgetting that stuff is ending (you’d think I’d realized we were nearing the end when I checked out the last episode of Erased).
But yes, I ended up checking out our new shows…only to double check and triple check. Why? Because there’s hardly anything that’s catching my eye! But let’s see what I have… Continue reading
So the winter season is up and running, there have been quite a few shows, and since I mentioned there were quite a few shows I wanted to check out, I thought I’d tell you all how my adventures went! I won’t talk about series with second seasons since I haven’t checked those out yet. Kind of…I mean, I checked out GATE but not enough where I could form thoughts other than, it’s OK. And then I still need to finish Snow White!
Anywho, I’ll start off with two of my favorites! Two that I am really excited about and that I’m sure I’m not the only one fangasaming over.
If you have to check out at least one show from the new season I would highly suggest and recommend Erased. Erased follows the life of Satoru Fujinuma, a 29 year old mangaka artist who finds himself as the prime suspect of his mother’s murder! Panicking and trying to escape, Fujinuma finds himself transported back to the past thanks to his ability that forces him to go back in time when a catastrophe is about to happen. Now in the body of his elementary school days, Fujinuma must figure out how his mother’s murder is related to the murder of his classmate Kayo Hinazuki, and what he can do to prevent the tragedy from happening. Continue reading
