I talk about Angst in fiction and I recommend a few of my favourite angsty yuri manga
Yeah, not much else happens. I whine about angsty whining and I talk about Yuri passionately. Business as usual
Why are you still reading this. Just watch the f******g video.
P.S This is also my 100th post on my blog. Yay me! I’m just going to go cry in a corner now. Yeah, bye
As the summer season anime of 2012 draws to a close, we’re bound to miss those heartwarming and gut-wrenching moments of those animes that we’ve watched over the season. Lacklustre or not, I’d still enjoy whichever ones that I’ve picked up and watched through every episode except for School Days, of course. Worse that I’ve seen and I’m glad there were only a few of its kind! Not to offend those who love it though! Just a little disclaimer : Read at your own risk! Read the rest of this entry
Once again, this is another one of those post I have hoarded up for when I reach a dry spell. But this one could be pretty interesting (I hope).
The reason behind this post is simple enough. A couple of months back, I read a manga called GirlXGirlXBoy. I’m not sure if it’s popular or well-known but I definitely liked it. And a couple of weeks ago, another manga I was reading, Kimo Koi Limit, ended. And these two manga have 1 thing in common (well, 2 actually. They’re both generally Yuri). They both had a “third wheel” character that aided the progress of the main couple’s relationship. And I have always pitied this one poor person.
So it is time for ANOTHER, double episode review. This time it’s for InuxBoku SS! Wow, I am really, really glad that once I am done with this I will be back on schedule and can do other things. If time permits, I might do a Symphogear review. (Or not)
Since we left off, nothing has changed except maybe Ririchiyo has friends now. Both Watanuki and Karuta are both close to Ririchiyo and although she does not admit it, I guess we all know she likes it. Plot wise nothing much progressed between those two episodes so nothing much to talk about there. Read the rest of this entry
Now it’s rare for me to do an episodic, but I guess doing episodics on this anime series will be an exception, since it’s new and ongoing. To be honest, I find the previous OP and ED much more to my liking, but I won’t take anything away from the new ones. They were still good for the new OP but somehow I do find the ED a little weird (well the show is weird anyway). WARNING THERE ARE SOME PICS WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT TURN YOU ON.

Bakemonogatari is one of those shows you either love or hate. Watching the pilot episode, I was put off by the striking colour scheme and confusing flashing text introduction. The frequent slow motion and 3-D close up shots of characters didn’t give a pleasant first impression either. Its definitely not for those who are new to anime and even after watching the whole season, I’d agree with anyone that calls the series “weird”. It was hard for me to put sum up everything about this show so please forgive me if I miss out on something important.
The content sounds reasonably normal. Bakemonogatari (Ghostory) is about Araragi Koyomi, an ex-vampire, who helps out 5 unusual girls with their supernatural problems with the assistance of a specialist, Oshino Meme. Araragi is the typical selfless nice guy who is unconditionally kind and allows himself to get abused or hurt in the place of others, which usually turns out fine because he has a near-immortal body thanks to his ex-vampirism.
It sounds like a pretty generic harem themed show structure, and I’d be lying if I said that the show doesn’t have any harem elements. But unlike most shows with many girls surrounding one guy, Araragi is actually not an idiot. He’s a little bit perverted and a lolicon, but is absolutely loyal to Senjogahara while still being very kind to the other girls, except maybe Hachikuji.
Another thing that separates the show from a typical harem (*Ahem InfiniteSratos*) are the girls’ personalities. They aren’t just there to provide different types fanservice like loli and moe, they also each have a distinct relationship with Araragi and have vastly different temperaments.
Since It was serialized as a manga I knew what was coming. Blood, mystery and romance. It wasn’t as gruel as the manga “Btoom!!”, but more or less on the same wavelength in terms of it’s violence. I’m sure “Another” was as scary as this, if not, even scarier. I guessed the anime would have a little fanservice as it’s the manga adaptation, which had borderline H scenes and the like ; definitely not one for those who are more to moe and peaceful backdrops. You have been warned.
Let me start with summarizing this episode in a few words. “OH MY GOD AT LAST”. Yes, the episode that makes you go “Wow” and many other wild exclamations is here. Not every part of this episode was good, but those few moments just made me start talking gibberish. Anywhat, this episode is basically the Festival kind of episode, like last time was a beach episode.
Well, it’s about a month late but here it is!! Part 4 of Forbidden Lilies!!! It was written a month ago but my editor only completed editing it a few days ago. Then he took a while to send it to me. Mostly due to his fact he’s not allowed to use his computer and hence couldn’t send it to me. So I apologize for it’s lateness and enjoy!
Ok guys and girls, a quick announcement, the winter season animes are all out so an impressions blog will be done on them soon. (Actually not so soon, it depends on how lazy we are) Ok, back to the topic, about a week ago, I started on the anime Kaichou wa Maid-sama, in other words, the Student Council President is a Maid! One thing that caught my eye was that the anime had a genre called shoujo. It means it is meant more for the ladies, but surprisingly, at the end, I found it to be an extremely enjoyable anime but more on that later. Again spoilers inside. (Not really, but I will do the summary of the entire story….)
