Spring 2017 – Week 12

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. […]

Sakura Quest – Episodes 11 & 12

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 […]

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 […]
