I finally had the privilege to watch Aria — and by golly it only took me one season out of three to be convinced that it’s one of the greatest thing I can ask for an anime. Aria, to most of its fans, is considered to be the flag-ship of the iyashikei genre — a genre […]

It’s quite a slow week for anime in general. Not sure whether or not it’s a side-effect of me focusing on other media, or the line-up this season isn’t strong enough to compel me to write something. Made in Abyss – Episode 3 Made in Abyss awfully reminds me of those classic JRPGs I grew […]

Made in Abyss – Episode 2 Despite being taciturn in its exploration during the first episode, Made in Abyss adapts a more verbose route this time around. Regardless of what its means of exposition is, I still found myself immersed in whatever Made in Abyss shows/tells me. Its world is just that good. Sadly though, […]

I was meaning to begin my Summer 2017 coverage next week but whatever. Made in Abyss – Episode 1 I love fantasy. And I adore fantasy that does world-building right. Exploration plays a huge part in a fantasy story’s narrative, and being able to grab your audience’s intrigue right away is indispensable if you want […]

I only have 4 episodes to cover for this week. Summer 2017 will kick-off next next week, along with it shows this season that will be carried over. Sakura Quest – Episode 13 I’ll be including my Sakura Quest coverage into my weekly seasonal posts. Expect to see more of it this Summer. Anyways, yeah. I […]

Supposing that I am a painter. I have in mind an image of a person staring through a vast, open space clutching a fidget spinner on his right hand. How do I bring about the life of this image onto my blank canvas? I’ve been seeing enough arguments about ‘visuals vs. narrative’ on my Twitter […]

Sooo I took at peak at next season’s line up and as usual nothing grabbed my attention to warrant further interest/research (well, aside from the Ballroom adaptation). Maybe I should watch Kado or Kemono Friends in the meantime? Alice to Zouroku – Episode 12 (END) And Zouroku saves the day yet again with another scolding. […]

It’s fine to stay who you are. Regardless of what you think of yourself — be it a dragon, an unemployed “food fighter” or what ever — one of these days you’ll meet someone who you can see eye to eye. As long as you don’t shut yourself off in a cave, you’ll never miss […]

Some NieR: Automata spoilers ahead. Read at your own risk. I’m playing this game. It’s a high-paced, action-packed game wherein you control an android wielding weapons ranging from a katana to a two-meter long greatsword. The combat is addictive, ecstatic even. But it makes me sad. 40 hours spent, I finally reached the game’s exalted […]

Summer is in the horizon, and I’ve still yet to scout which new shows I’m going to cover. Alice to Zouroku – Episode 11 Hardest thing about connecting with Alice to Zouroku‘s characters is that, well, they’re still kids with kiddy problems. Of course, we can still sympathize with them to an extent, and even […]

Yikes. Almost 2000 words for a mere weekly write-up. I started this weekly seasonal posts to ease up my workload. Looks like it ended up having an adverse effect. Not that I’m against it. Alice to Zouroku – Episode 10 I really love Alice to Zouroku. I think it deserves a far better distinction from […]
