Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) – Post Thoughts

Shingeki no Kyojin

After watching the last episode of Attack on Titan just moments ago, I read through many discussion threads to see what other people thought of the series overall and thought I would post my own thoughts here. Since this was probably one of the most popular series in the last few years, it got quite a bit of attention, criticism, and hype from the audience. If you haven’t watched this show yet, please be warned that this post may contain spoilers. Continue reading

Summer 2013 Anime Season Wrap Up (Part 2)

Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi’s amazing attention to detail in their scenes

Another week has passed by and more series have ended. Approximately half of what I was following in the Summer 2013 anime season has now ended and overall I feel that this season was rather enjoyable with a lot of strong series. Continuing on with my thoughts on these series, please be warned that there may contain some spoilers about the series so read with caution! Continue reading

Fall 2013 Anime Season: Pre-Air Impressions (Part 2)

Continuing from where I left off last time, I’ll be going over the Fall 2013 series that I plan on watching and giving my initial impressions of them based on the currently released previews and synopsis.

BlazBlue: Alter Memory – I’m not very familiar with the game but just looking at the preview, this series has very beautiful animation and art style. Hopefully the fight scenes will be well animated as well. I’m not expecting too much since it is based off of a game and the last series I watched that was similar was not executed very well (Danganronpa, Devil Survivor 2). Continue reading

Anime Recommendation (3) – Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai!

Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai!: Pokkapoka

This week I’m recommending a more light hearted series that is not action based. Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! (Listen to me girls I am your father!) is a romantic, comedic, slice of life series that has a bit of a love triangle or harem element to it. This was one of the first series that I picked up when I first got back into anime last year and it just fueled my desire to continue delve further into the anime world.

Synopsis from Myanimelist:

“Segawa Yuta is a freshman of a university. He lost his parents when he was small and was raised by his sister Yuri. Yuta has been living alone since Yuri got married to a middle aged man when Yuta was a junior high student. 
One day, Yuri visited Yuta’s apartment and asked him to take care of her three daughters while Yuri and her husband were on a trip. He unwillingly accepted the job but the plane Yuri took went missing. In order to prevent the daughters from being adopted separately by relatives, Yuta decided to take in all three girls. 
A life of a strange family in a tiny apartment begins.” Continue reading

Summer 2013 Anime Season Wrap Up (Part 1)

With the summer season coming to an end, I will be posting my thoughts on the series that I have watched and how my impressions of them changed as the season progressed. I’ll post my thoughts in batches so I am not too overwhelmed by the time the last show finishes airing and also so the wall of text is a bit smaller. With that said, here are my thoughts on the series that have already concluded! Continue reading

Fall 2013 Anime Season: Pre-Air Impressions (Part 1)

So for this post I guess I’ll just post what anime I plan on following in the upcoming fall season and what my initial thoughts are after reading the synopsis and watching any previews.

Tokyo Ravens – I’m not familiar at all with this series but I really like the art style that they have for it. I feel that this will be a pretty generic shounen anime which I don’t mind watching every so often. It also has Hanazawa Kana as the main female lead so I’m sure it’ll be a decent series overall. Continue reading

Anime Recommendation (2) – Mirai Nikki

This week for my anime recommendation, I’ll be suggesting a fairly popular and somewhat controversial anime known as  Mirai Nikki (Future Diary).
Synopsis from Myanimelist:
“This psychological thriller, based on the manga written and illustrated by Sakae Esuno, is about Yuki, a loner who’s not very good with people. He prefers to write a diary on his cell phone and talk to his imaginary friend, Deus Ex Machina – The God of Time and Space. However, Yuki soon learns that Deus is more than a figment of his imagination when he makes Yuki participate in a battle royale with eleven others. The contestants are given special diaries that can predict the future, each diary possessing unique features that give it both advantages and disadvantages. Within the next 90 days, the contestants must try to survive until there is only one left standing. The winner will become the new God of Time and Space.” Continue reading

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 – Post Thoughts

I’ve had this series on my back burner for months now but this past week I finally managed to find the time to sit down and complete the series. I figured that I would just post about some of my general thoughts on the series and what aspects I enjoyed and didn’t. Be warned that this may contain SPOILERS so proceed with caution if you have not finished the series yet and don’t want to have it spoiled!

Synopsis from Myanimelist:

The premise of the project is the 70% possibility that a magnitude 7.0 earthquake will occur in Tokyo in the next 30 years. The anime depicts what would happen if an 8.0 earthquake took place.The story centers on Mirai, a middle school freshman girl who goes to Tokyo’s artificial Odaiba Island for a robot exhibition with her brother Yuuki at the start of summer vacation. A powerful tremor emanates from an ocean trench, the famed Tokyo Tower and Rainbow Bridge crumble and fall, and the landscape of Tokyo changes in an instant. With the help of a motorcycle delivery woman named Mari who they meet on Odaiba, Mirai and Yuuki strive to head back to their Setagaya home in western Tokyo.”
