First Impressions: Kono Oto Tomare!

This girl Hozuki seems to be the one carrying the show so far. This one's a mixed bag. Yeah, you read that right. Among all that showed their first episodes I had to give this anime 3 episodes to know where it's supposed to go. It's still rough on the edges. What it mostly shows … Continue reading First Impressions: Kono Oto Tomare!

Carole & Tuesday Episode 2: New Opportunities

For a fictional world set in Mars, it's no different to our own world currently. What's interesting to see is that despite the popularity of AI, it is still built on music created by humans. This will most likely go on the argument on which is better: AI-generated music? Or real music? Bit-by-bit we get … Continue reading Carole & Tuesday Episode 2: New Opportunities

First Impressions: Sarazanmai

Before I'll start this anime wasn't in my preview for this season. After looking up most of them I gave this show a chance. After 2 episodes in, I'm in love with it. It's drastically different in terms of presentation. You get placeholder crowds, blatant ads, song numbers, transformation sequences, flamboyantly gay men, cross-dressing, drugs, … Continue reading First Impressions: Sarazanmai

Carole & Tuesday Episode 1: Getting into the Music

This show has been on my most anticipated for this season. And it did! For a futuristic setting, it shows a middle ground for the main leads. Majority of the human race heavily relies on AI to the point their own lives is dominated by them. Two women wants to stir things up. Tuesday ran … Continue reading Carole & Tuesday Episode 1: Getting into the Music

Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 18: Accepting Who You Are

The finale for Boogiepop ended on a good note. If you managed to complete this show without ever getting confused, I commend your efforts. It took a bunch of twists and turns where some was worth the payoff and some don't. The last arc for this adaptation was all about how past events affects a … Continue reading Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 18: Accepting Who You Are

Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 17: Tracing Your Inner Self

It's almost the end. The final arc gives us a look of the character's innermost mindset when it comes to their mistakes. Niitoki seems to have it figured out. And Boogiepop even engages with one of the affected, namely Sakiko. I mostly see her as a minor character for the sake of this arc but … Continue reading Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 17: Tracing Your Inner Self

Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 16: It Comes From the Self

We're getting slightly psychological here. King of Distortion doesn't have a permanent identity in the first place because it varies from person to person. In one conversation, it's simply a split personality. Some believe, some don't. It's part of a person's clinging desires who wanted it to be real. I would love to eat this … Continue reading Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 16: It Comes From the Self
