Amanchu! – Episode 12 (END)

Heads up! Summer is barely starting for our diving crew. In a fitting and conclusive send-off, Amanchu! bids farewell with its tagline of One for All, All for One Fun for All, All for Fun. I couldn't agree more that this gentle reminder as it easily summarizes what the show is all about despite its generally …

Amanchu! – Episode 9

Umpf. That hit closer to home than I expected. For some reason, this week's Amanchu! reads like a personal introspection by its author -- sorta like a piece taken out of a diary.

Amanchu! – Episode 3

I noticed that I've been talking a lot about Amanchu! figuratively in my previous posts. Then again, I believe that's the closest way I can truly describe the beauty within this show. While it's obvious that Amanchu!'s visuals are aesthetically elegant, the beauty it managed to capture in this episode is the connection between Pikari and Teko. I mentioned during my …
