Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san (Review)

Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san has both a solid and entertaining story as well as nice artwork and a somewhat reasonable amount of fanservice. A solid job on the art as well as the soundtrack give the story life and combining this with the great set of characters, it’s hard to not have an entertaining anime.

Yagate Kimi ni Naru (First Impression)

“Yuu has always loved shōjo manga and awaits the day she gets a love confession that sends her heart aflutter with bubbles and blushes, and yet when a junior high classmate confesses his feelings to her, she feels nothing. Disappointed and confused, Yuu enters high school still unsure how to respond. That’s when Yuu sees the beautiful student council president Nanami turn down a suitor with such maturity that she’s inspired to ask her for help. But then the next person to confess to Yuu is Nanami herself.” -Yagate Kimi ni Naru (manga)

Ulysses: Jeanne D’arc to Renkin no Kishi (First Impression)

While I love the art and character design so far, the story itself felt like it wasn’t explained thoroughly enough. It was disorientating and most of the setting is implied through background conversations and little hints from our main characters. While I love the idea of alchemy playing a big part in the story, the mixture of alchemy and fantasy creatures like fairies felt weird and out of place. The first episode is mainly for Montmorency and establishing his character and position in the setting, but the way the entire episode was executed felt disjointed and unorganized.

Fairy Tail: Final Series (First Impression)

Ohmygodohmygodohmygod!!! I’M NOT FREAKING OUT, YOU’RE FREAKING OUT!! *ahem* Sorry lost my composure for a second there…but yes, you heard right! Fairy Tail is finally back for its final season. The art and soundtrack fill me with nostalgia and man does it feel good! The somewhat uneasy intro has me a little worried about what’s to come (I have no idea since I refuse to read the manga in case of spoiling everything for myself) so it’ll be an interesting development.

Tokyo Ghoul:re 2nd Season (First Impression)

Honestly, the first episode had me pretty confused. It seemed like some time has passed since Kaneki reawakened, and his hair color changed again? Maybe the manga readers have a better idea of what happened in between. But regardless this is it boys and girls! The final season of Tokyo Ghoul, I have very high expectations for the story and character development I hope to see everyone from both the original Tokyo Ghoul as well as our favorite from Tokyo Ghoul:re all get some screen time and end this awesome series with a bang.

Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san (First Impression)

Oh yes, the CGDCT (Cute Girls Doing Cute Things) anime that I’ve been looking for this season! From the get-go, I love the simplicity of the art, though it doesn’t involve a lot of details, the expressions of the characters make up for that other cute and amusing ways! As the synopsis suggests, the story is pretty straightforward focusing on Sophie and friends and their day to day life!

Hinomaruzumou (First Impression)

I always thought that Sumo was about big men pushing each other out of the ring and, oh boy, was I wrong about that. Sumo is a much more intense and honorable sport than I originally thought! The anime itself looks and feels great, the artwork and animation are dynamic and colorful while the story is passionate and inspiring. I love an overpowering main character, and Ushio is just the guy to fill that spot!
