Anime Recommendation (4) – Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai (AnoHana)

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these but here we go! For this post, I am recommending the series AnoHana, or “We Still Don’t Know the Name of the Flower We Saw That Day” which is a pretty dramatic, slice of life series with some supernatural elements to it. I’m recommending this series since this is one of the first series I watched when I got back into anime a year ago (After PapaKiki and Angel Beats). I picked this up after seeing it being recommended with Angel Beats! which absolutely left a major impression on me. Continue reading

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

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

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.”
