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!


THE END OF MOST OF THE FALL ANIMES! :(


i just finished watching Sukitte Iinayo, Kamisama Hajimemashita, K, and Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun which have all ending during the week. It always makes me feel so old whenever i look forward to shows for so long and then they end. 😦

anyways, im here to just give you guys a little review on all of them so that you can go and watch them and then grieve later

Sukitte Iinayo

it’s about a high school girl named tachibana mei who had always been let down by her friends so early on she had decided that she didn’t need friends. then she meets the most popular guy in school named yamato who is nice and once they start dating, he basically helps her to view everyone in a different way.

it’s sweet,  funny, the art is gorgeous, and there are so many heartwarming scenes! all shoujo lovers should definitely check this out

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

this manga has been my favorite for a long time. it’s about this girl named shizuku whose life basically revolves around studying. one day her teacher asks her to bring handouts to a guy who hasn’t shown up to school since the first day when he beat up some upperclassmen. once she meets him, he’s actually a huge weirdo and once she promises to be his friend, he comes to school and then everything at school changes for her.

it’s adorable, all the characters are hilarious, and you’ll just sit there not knowing whose love to root for

Kamisama Hajimemashita

this is about a girl who is kicked out of her house since her dad left her with a bunch of debt and meets a weird guy who offers her a place to stay When she goes to the place he tells her to, she arrives at a shrine and meets tomoe, a fox youkai shrine familiar, and two other helpers (?). apparently the man that she had met was the previous god of the shrine who left twenty years ago and now she has to take over his job.

one word can summarize this anime and manga perfectly: CUTE! any one who likes adorable shoujos should definitely check this out

K

this anime was pretty interesting yet really confusing to explain so im just going to use the one that anime news network has

Ashinaka High School is known for its unique setting: the entire campus is built on an island. Yashiro Isana, aka Shiro, is having lunch with a cat on one of the school rooftops. After his lunch break, Shiro goes on an errand for his classmate Kukuri to prepare for their upcoming school festival, only to be chased by some intimidating-looking men.

i don’t love that summary so i’m just gonna add some extra stuff. the country is secretly ruled by seven kings and apparently shiro killed on of the red king’s clansmen but he doesn’t remember it and after he meets kuro, a bunch of things start to be triggered.

there’s a lot of good music, the art is amazing, and a ton of amazing voice actors are in this (Daisuke Ono (;)) Yui Horie, Jun Fukuyama) and there is a lot of action. this is more of a shounen anime so all shounen lovers should watch this

there’s a few more animes that i’d like to suggest like Psycho Pass (love it!)  but i’ll probably do the suggestions for those once they end.


Fate Zero


i’ve been meaning to do a post on the fate stay night/ fate zero series so here it is! along with the music that i like

since fate zero is still airing, i’ll just summarize the anime.

it’s about the holy grail war where seven magi are chosen by the holy grail to fight for the wish that the grail will grant. in order to fight each other, the magi summon servants (mostly strong heroes of the past) and try to beat each other mentally and physically.

there’s some humor, a lot of action, and the story is irresistable. there is also a little bit of romance that makes everything better so everyone who needs a good anime should check this out.

im also in love with the openings and endings so here’s the list:

the first opening is oath sign by LiSA (Yui from Angel Beats)

the first ending is Memoria by Eir Aoi (the video is amazing, it shows the servants and their pasts. and the song is catchy in a good way)

the second opening is to the beginning by kalafina (if you haven’t seen my previous post, i LOVE kalafina! great song, perfect harmonies, it’s just amazing so definitely give this a try)

the second ending is sora wa takaku kaze wa utau by haruna luna (it has been stuck in my head all week! i love the lyrics, the music, and her voice! try this song too if you like nice melodies)


Spring 2012 Anime


i was watching kuroko no basket and having a blast when i realized that i didn’t even post anything about the new spring animes. i’m sorry for that. so here it is:

of course kuroko no basket

Fate Zero part 2 (i’m so happy it came back! don’t ever end!)

hiiro no kakera

Jormungand (https://hilarypham.wordpress.com/2012/01/11/jormungand/  OMG! THEY MADE AN ANIME! I CAN DIE HAPPY!)

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (i’d give  this a 3/5. if you’re into more shounen stuff then try this)


Natsume Yuujinchou


this has to be in my top favorite shoujo mangas ever. it’s sad, funny, and there’s an anime!

the story follows the book of friends that is a collection of numerous youkai‘s signatures and gives the owner of the book the power to control all those youkai. then natsume, who can see youkai, inherits the book from his grandmother who was notorious for defeating youkai back in her day. when he was younger his parents died and forced him to be moved from relative to relative and each of them ended up not liking him because he could see youkai. after moving with the fujiwaras who are kind and let him live with them, he starts to meet youkai and gets to know them more

it’s a touching story and the art in the manga is a little bit messy but i just love this so definitely check it out


Kyousogiga


it finally came out! (actually, the official release date was a few weeks ago but let’s ignore that fact) after weeks of watching only trailers, i went crazy and watching this about five times.

the version i watched didn’t have subtitles but the art was amazing. the graphics were really clear cut and really up to the times good. the story is about a girl named koto and two other kids who are trying to find a rabbit that will bring them home. They’re in a place ruled by a monk, demon (?), and a priest and while they’re there, it’s total mayhem and there’s a really awesome opening. Then she discovers a secret plot (i’m trying really hard not to spoil it!) and it gets kinda weird but i loved it

rie kugimiya voiced koto and she is my favorite seiyuu because she do all the tsundere and crazy girl voices perfectly and in this show, she just nailed it!

if you love action, humor, and just great art, you have to watch this! even if you can’t understand what they’re saying, the graphics are good enough that you won’t even care about what the hell is going on. 😉
