Turns out I was yet to take a slice of the other side of the cake. Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou was a surprising watch given that I’ve thought hitherto all I needed for my iyashikei fix were Aria, Aria, and Aria. Lately, I’ve been immersing myself into numerous amount of slice of life materials. Majority of which seems to be indicative […]


Not now, onion cutting ninjas. Not now.


I don’t know, man. Flip Flappers is one of those rares shows that’s better watched on one sitting than waiting on a weekly basis. Torture. I say torture. Honestly, I don’t know where to begin. If you thought the first two episodes had a lot of stuff going on in it, wait until you watch this one. […]


For the record, I’m writing this sober. I’m… no, you probably won’t understand a word a drunk person would write. Though I’m pretty sure that even if I’m drunk or not, I could fairly say that Yuri!!! On Ice‘s third episode was one hot ride. I’ll get this out as soon as now. For starters, I felt a bit ambivalent […]


You know, I kinda regret picking up 3-gatsu. It’s not for the reason that the show is offensive or disappointing, it’s just that I may have to peel open a couple of old wounds to get my point across with whatever I write. It sucks, but, hey, I totally appreciate shows that resonate with me on a more personal […]


Flip Flap. Flip Flap. Flip Flap. Hear that? That’s the sound of an anime knocking on this blog’s door! Come in, Flip Flappers! Flip Flappers is one of the few that garnered mixed reception during its premier. One side of the spectrum claims experiencing a sense of wanderlust, excitement from the prospect of discovering unknown places and vistas. Another side […]


First of all, just a heads up to you, folks, recently I’ve been busy with my work and will continue to be so until who knows when. I’m deliberating whether or not to continue the episodic format for my posts. Honestly, episodic is probably… one of the most difficult way to blog about anime in comparison to series […]


“See? There’s no place for you in this world.” “There’s nothing.” “You’ve gotten better.” “You left so suddenly… Ayumu and Kyouko are worried about you.” That’s a lie. The previous remarks were all that was spoken before Rei Kiriyama (Kengo Kawashini), 17-year old professional shogi player, uttered his first line of speech capping the former […]


All right. I know nothing about figure skating — as with possibly the case of anyone who’s watching this — but if there’s one thing I can be damn sure and proud of, it’s that this premier deserves a gold medal. I think it’s fair to say that Yuri!!! On Ice doesn’t need further introduction after charming everyone with its jaw-dropping […]


Mob Psycho 100 has finally come to an end, and so is my Summer 2016 blogging adventure. Summer 2016 is probably one of the most enjoyable season there is recently. With shows like planetarian, Amanchu!, 91 Days, Rem: Zero to name a few spearheading Summer’s stacked line-up, Mob Psycho 100 stood out from the pack and distinguishes itself as this […]


For the nth time, I guess we can finally say the adventure is just starting? In retrospect, blogging about ToZX had been quite a difficult prospect for me due to the nature of the show and my relationship with it. Though, regardless of my overall negative feedback every episode, ToZX still managed to cap its first season […]
