Seasonal Impressions: Winter 2020

Winter 2020 has been an unexpected ride. And we're not even in the next season just yet. And if you didn't notice, I'm now doing Seasonal Impressions! What's the difference you may ask? It's like how I do my individual First Impressions but covering all the shows I'm watching currently. Instead choosing a specific number,… Continue reading Seasonal Impressions: Winter 2020

Winter 2020: In Detail

Looking at the lineup for next season there's a most likely chance that a majority would keep up with the 2nd cour of the anime from last season. And that's okay. Every show has its own perks. What's notable this season is it's more diverse in terms of genres and concepts so there's nothing much… Continue reading Winter 2020: In Detail

Fall 2019 Seasonal Anime Wrap-up

Last post before this decade ends! So much has happened I nearly forgot what I was supposed to do when the season is over. That's right. I usually look back and give my thoughts for everyone to watch. Take note that this is all based on my own preferences and if I don't mention any… Continue reading Fall 2019 Seasonal Anime Wrap-up

First Impressions: Beastars

For an anime featuring anthropomorphic characters and fluid 3D animation, it delivered. The story is easy to digest but what makes the show different is the underlying themes. You have Legoshi the timid wolf who's trying his best to be more social to everyone. Also there's Haru the prominent rabbit where she experiences bullying even… Continue reading First Impressions: Beastars

Fall 2019: Incoming Lineup

It's October! You know what that means? (Inktober? No, I don't have time for that.) Basically, we're at the last stretch of seasonal anime this year. Considering this is the last wave many fan favorites are coming back leaving majority of the new ones under the rubble once more. I'll be looking forward to two… Continue reading Fall 2019: Incoming Lineup

Summer 2019 Seasonal Anime Wrap-up

If you know this, there's no need for further tears. Summer 2019 has been a wild ride for me. For once every show I've been keeping up with lures me in. Though there was an anime I was dissatisfied with its incoming conclusion, everything else was a cut above the rest. Before I do my… Continue reading Summer 2019 Seasonal Anime Wrap-up

First Impressions: O Maidens in Your Savage Season

Sex! I can't think of anything else that's associated here. I thought it was a show where sex or even the thought of it doesn't seem to go anywhere. But I stand corrected. It's even unexpected to see how it was handled. There are some cases it was a bit too over-the-top yet it's giving… Continue reading First Impressions: O Maidens in Your Savage Season

First Impressions: Given

Since when was the last time I've seen a BL anime that's this good? Really, this one broke the misconception of what shows like this are treated as such. Although I know Love Stage exists (although it aired a long time ago) similar anime still falls under a specific niche. I am saying this to… Continue reading First Impressions: Given

First Impressions: Cop Craft

Well look what we've got here, a buddy cop show with a dash of fantasy! It's been a while since I've seen an anime about a detective with a proper introduction to its world. (I'm looking at you B: The Beginning.) Compared to the very few similar shows with different settings, the world-building feels gradual.… Continue reading First Impressions: Cop Craft

Carole & Tuesday Episode 13: Rivalries and Drama

The one-week break helped a lot since it covered the first half of the show. And here comes the second part! Comparing the new theme songs, these kinds of songs will just grow on me. Don't get me wrong, I'm used to hearing the first ones and I can adjust to it. Mostly a set-up… Continue reading Carole & Tuesday Episode 13: Rivalries and Drama
