Just a thought on NieR: Automata and Little Witch Academia

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 […]

Spring 2017 – Week 11

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 […]

Spring 2017 – Week 10

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 […]

Sakura Quest – Episodes 9 & 10

Always make sure your calendar is up to date, boys. I wasn’t feeling the hots for how things concluded with the previous arc last week. Maybe I’m just used to seeing Sakura Quest capping its arcs with either a festive or an emotional climax, and episode 9 is… uhh, somewhere doing a limbo between the […]

Spring 2017 – Week 9

I’m trying out a new approach for writing my weekly posts. Glad to say it’s working out a lot better than before! As evident in this post it’s at least two times longer than my previous ones. I simply wrote each thoughts right after watching the episode, as opposed to watching all episodes first and […]

Spring 2017 – Weeks 7 & 8

Finally got the time to catch-up and squeeze this post in. Let’s keep this short. Alice to Zouroku – Episodes 7 & 8 Underappreciated. Hope it gets more love from the audience. Boku no Hero Academia Season 2 – Episodes 8 & 9 Ochako’s always been a great and fun character to watch… which leaves me […]

Sakura Quest – Episode 8

For tasty food, double the money. To be full, double the amount. To double the pleasure of a meal, add a companion to dine with. A quote I remember from one of the volumes of Spice and Wolf. This got stuck in my head only because I was a pitiful chump back in college who eats hotdogs […]

Sakura Quest – Episode 7

I feel like there’s a kind of duality here between the character arcs Episode 7 concluded. And the more I think about it the more I come to appreciate how flawlessly Sakura Quest blends its characters’ stories with its overarching narrative… despite it appearing contrived. That, and the near-perfect pacing makes up for one very enjoyable viewing. The theme […]

Spring 2017 – Week 6 & Koe no Katachi

Watching Koe no Katachi was the best possible way I could’ve ended this week, and what better way to commemorate this experience than to throw in a couple of impressions? Koe no Katachi First off, I suggest reading this with a grain of salt since I was watching the movie right when my senses were […]

Sakura Quest – Episodes 5 & 6

I’ve been mulling over a couple of… personal stuff recently courtesy of Sakura Quest. Now that we have an idea of its general outline, it just started to become difficult for me not to overly relate myself with the characters. But hey, I guess that’s why it’s set with grown up peeps trying to find […]
