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 […]

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

Sakura Quest – Episode 2

The pacing didn’t slow down a notch, and so far it doesn’t seem like Sakura Quest is holding back in introducing […]

Sakura Quest – Episode 1

Sakura Quest is off to a good start, Spring 2017 isn’t. To be honest, I’m not quite reluctant in indulging too muchthis season given the amount of prequels that are airing. That’s not to say that they’re bad, or that I don’t have real expectations for them — it’s just they practically bring nothing new to the […]
