[Review] Haikyuu S3: The New Champions!

/SCREAMS INTO THE NIGHT SKY/

It’s happened! I’ve gone and watched the whole of Haikyuu, 60 episodes in some 5 days. And It Was Awesome. You guys have no idea how happy I am that my wait was not long since I started watching s3 when there were 9 episodes and Friday was only 2 days away. Plus, I cheated and went to look at the manga to see how the season would end because I needed to know so bad! Possibly the worst cliffhanger e-v-e-r

Like always, spoilers for Season 1 and Season 2 are fair game! Continue reading “[Review] Haikyuu S3: The New Champions!”

[Review] Haikyuu S2: Gearing up for the Spring Tournament Finals!

I can’t believe it took this long to get back to watching Haikyuu! But better late than never, right? So I started watching this series back when it first came out (2015), but I was slowly going through it because I was watching with my family.

Of course, after my brother watched it without me because he couldn’t wait anymore, I was left devastated and put the series on hold. Until just recently.

Also, if you haven’t watched S1, I’d say watch it unless you don’t mind spoilers because S1 spoilers are fair game. I also reviewed S1 here!

When it was announced that season 2 was going to be airing, I was pumped because it was going to encompass so much character growth, and some of my favorite scenes of the manga: the training camp and the bathroom scene!

[Review] Haikyuu S1: No Longer Fallen Champions!

Hey guys!

So it’s been awhile since I first watched Haikyuu S1, 2 years ago actually (my how time flies~) and because there’s been a sudden revival of the series, I thought I’d go back and rewatch the whole thing! And with S1 down, I am now ready to watch s3 (pshh, I watched this in the wrong order hehe)

Now, I’m mentioning rewatching because my review now is completely different from when I’d first watched it. You can bet I was screaming and tearing up when I watched this in 2014, but now…well, read ahead~

Haikyuu is a 25 episode anime about volleyball and very thirsty characters. At the beginning we’re introduced to our two main protagonists, Hinata Shouyo and Kageyama Tobio. Continue reading “[Review] Haikyuu S1: No Longer Fallen Champions!”

[Review] Skip Beat: 38 volumes of fun, craziness, and healing

Today I decided to share one of my favorite shoujo manga that makes me laugh like a maniac. As if I didn’t do enough of that already…

Skip Beat! is a 38 volume (and ongoing) shoujo manga by Yoshiki Nakamura that is licensed by VIZ media. It follows the life of Kyoko Mogami, a sixteen year old girl who follows her crush Sho to Tokyo to help realize his dreams of becoming a celebrity. Working multiple jobs, Kyoko supports Sho and the home they “both share”. Completely devoted, she doesn’t see that there’s something more sinister at play here.

Of course, all of this changes when Kyoko visits Sho on location and overhears a conversation where he confesses that he was only using her as a maid! Enraged by his betrayal, Kyoko vows revenge and thus her determination to enter showbiz is born. Continue reading “[Review] Skip Beat: 38 volumes of fun, craziness, and healing”

[Review] Empire of Corpses Movie

I can’t believe it’s already the 21st and Empire of Corpses is no longer in theatres! Did anyone besides me go watch it? I’ve been going to watch the Funimation movies pretty faithfully but I always wonder why the theatres they’re shown at are so random. I ended up going to this one place about 1.5 hours away, which, considering how far I am from the city, isn’t that uncommon.

But I always wonder why they can’t be shown at an AMC theatres, that way I could just go somewhere closer… Continue reading “[Review] Empire of Corpses Movie”

[Review] GATE: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri

Hey guys~ Today I decided to post up my final thoughts on one of the summer season animes that I started but didn’t finish. Took me long enough, huh? If you’d like to read my first impression please click here (though it’s not that good, I just read over it and cringed a little, haha)

Now, I normally do a first impression and then my final thoughts back-to-back but considering I was out of the anime loop for quite a while, I decided to go back and re-watch everything. I actually just finished earlier today! Today was anime ‘binge day’, since I finally got a day off from work. It felt like I hadn’t had one of those in a while 😛 Continue reading “[Review] GATE: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri”

[Review] Kuroshitsuji S3: Book of Circus

Guy, I just finished watching (8/13) Book of Circus and I feel like intense feels punched me in the gut and now I’m just foaming at the mouth…

To start off I’m a huge fan of the manga and knowing that the Circus and Murder arc were going to be animated, I was super excited~ (though also slightly scared because season 1 was a total disappointment) and I just binged on it right now. While I was watching I also noticed a sense of deja vu and then I realized that I’d watched the first 2-3 episodes before they’d been subbed. Continue reading “[Review] Kuroshitsuji S3: Book of Circus”

[Review] Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist

Hey guys! I’m back with another anime thoughts post for Devils and Realists. I actually wrote up a first impression about it yesterday and I decided to finish it today (this morning). I’d recommend reading that first since I’m probably not going to go into detail on certain parts I already talked about. Continue reading “[Review] Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist”

[Review] 07 Ghost

Hey guys! So this morning I happened to finish this anime that I’d been meaning to watch for about a year or so now. The reason it took me this long to get back to it was that the first episode (or at least the little that I watched) didn’t exactly leave a good first impression…But now that I’ve come back to it and watched it I’m filled with conflicting views on the show! Haha (I can’t decide if I like it or not) Continue reading “[Review] 07 Ghost”

[Review] Gekkan Shojo Nozaki-kun

I was trying to figure out what number this series would fall into for my ‘2015 Finished Series’ and found I couldn’t remember how many I’ve watched this year. I doubt it ever made it into the double digits realm and so I gave up halfway through. But out of all the anime I did watch, which is few, this one short 12-episode show has to be my favorite thus far!
