Chihayafuru 2


i’m so excited! chihayafuru just came back and judging by the first season, the anime will just get better and better.

for those of you who didn’t watch the first season, i suggest that you watch it as soon as possible. it’s funny, the art is gorgeous, and all the characters are absolutely amazing.

it’s about chihaya ayase who loves karuta which is a card game in japan (just google karuta, it’s hard to explain…) that is also extremely competitive. when chihaya was younger, she met a boy named arata wataya who basically taught her how amazing karuta really was. ever since then, she’s been striving to be the best karuta player in japan and now she’s in high school and of course she starts a club and meets incredible people while playing karuta.

so far in season 2, it’s been great. it’s still hilarious, the art is still as good, and things seem like they’ll get better so definitely watch this anime!


Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun


here’s another promising new anime for all the supernatural action lovers out there.

it’s about a boy named shino who was a survivor of a neighboring town that burned down. since there are a bunch of rumors about why the village burned down, he and the others that he is close to are shunned by the other villagers. Shino was also given the blade called Murasame which is extremely powerful. everything peaceful in his life is disrupted when the imperial church tries to take murasame and force him to go to the capital.

the anime had a pretty slow start but i think that within an episode or two it’ll become really good. the art is great and there’s a lot of action to come, i think. anyways, i think that supernatural lovers should at least try watching the first episode and maybe the second when it comes out


Amnesia


this is one of the new animes that are part of the winter simulcast and i’m just going to review each of them after i watch them.

this anime is actually pretty strange/confusing. it’s about this girl who, at the beginning of the episode, passes out at the cafe where she works and loses her memories. then she meets two guys who are supposedly her two childhood friends but of course she can’t remember them. next, she talks to this spirit that only she can hear and realizes that his soul bumped into hers which caused her to lose her memory and she learns that she should go about her daily life and hope to regain her memories.

it’s okay if you like stories with amnesia. the art is amazing though. seriously, the art is gorgeous, the male characters are all really really REALLY hot, and the plot seems to be going somewhere. you should watch this if you’re more into the girly-shoujo animes

 


Dear Brother!


this is a great josei manga that’s got a lot of cute sibling stuff 🙂

it’s about a 23 year old office lady named Komatsu Momo who was separated from her three brothers fifteen years ago. now she’s planning to get married soon and so she contacts her brothers and soon everything gets turned upside down.

it’s by Enjouji Maki so the art is good, there’s a lot of humor, and you’ll grow to love all the characters!

josei readers will love this!
