Kefka’s Winter Season Round-Up (2016)

winter2016roundup

With the spring season already well underway, it’s time for me to recall what I thought of the Winter season shows I completed. Some quick thoughts on these series and a basic score at the end of each review. I want to get this over with so I can watch some airing shows… Read more of this post

The Marathon: Round 2

themarathon2

Reviewing shows I watched nearly a year ago. Oh boy…

The idea of the “Marathon” series was to make some quick conclusive reviews about shows I had recently marathoned and to combine them into one post. I made the Round 1 post like a year ago. So this is gonna be hard, but I should be able to jog my memory a bit. It’s unfortunate that all of the shows in this round aren’t in the slightest bit interesting for me to write about.  Read more of this post

The Marathon: Round 1

THEMARATHON

Oh the pain…

I’ve got a lot of anime backed up on this piece of shit computer of mine. More than enough anime. It’s always been a divided idea of mine to just marathon said collection of unwatched anime, but I had no idea where to start. Luckily enough I’ve got a good group of people to sort me out and choose at random; leaving me to the forces of good and evil. So I guess this is just a post of mine where I leave short (some not so short) reviews on each series as I remember it being. These are in no way some “in depth review” as it has been some time since the marathon itself. I planned on writing something sooner, but [insert inadequate excuse for me not to write on this blog] Anyways here we go…

Kill la Kill Episode 5

[HorribleSubs] Kill la Kill - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.48_[2013.10.31_21.12.44]

Let me tell you two useful pieces of information. One: this episode doesn’t let down on Kill la Kill’s quick wittiness and absurd animation despite taking on a slower pace. Two: we have a brand new direction of development in the story including a new main character and some foreshadowing to tie in everyone’s resolve. The animation style has quite the improvement in comparison to the previous 4 episodes, looking way more reminiscent of Gurren Lagann this time around.

Nagi no Asukara Episode 5

[HorribleSubs] Nagi no Asukara - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.16_[2013.10.31_21.01.46]

From being completely uninterested in this show to potentially being on my list of best anime this year is still a huge surprise to me. Nagi no Asukara pulls the right cards balancing interesting plot in a fantasy world while sprinkling in enough drama and interesting character relationships to keep you attached. Many elements in Nagi are reminiscent of one of my favorite tear jerkers: Ano Hana (あの日見た花の名前を僕達はまだ知らない) which isn’t too surprising since both are written by the Mari Okada who is famous for her romance genre titles and the theme of forbidden love. This episode, many of the growing character conflicts become more pronounced, the resolution of the conflict between Miuna and Akari earns a slight moment’s reprieve, while more potential issues arise.
