To get it out of the way, I’m not going to lie. I’m only writing this post because I feel terrible that there has been virtually no new content here for the past month except for my videos. But, I’m still going to have fun writing it so it kind of cancels each other out in a weird, illogical way. However, that being said, the writers of OP (excluding Selcouth) are once again quasi-free!! LessThanFree, SleepyNoYume and I’s prelims are over and we can post again (Disclaimer: we’re probably still too lazy to post or we don’t have time to post because we’re mugging our arse off for the “O” levels).
Either way, I felt bad for not posting so you readers can look forward to 8 posts by me soon, including this one. I’m trawling through my little notepad of post ideas and I’ve picked the 8 most promising that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. And some of them are reallllllllllllly belated. Like this one for example.
Canaan was an anime that was on my to-watch list for a long time. I added it about 3 months after I got into the whole anime/manga/Japanese thing but I only watched it at the start of this year (That’s about 8 months despite having downloaded it immediately after I chose to watch it). As per usual, I only watched it after a period of extended boredom and realisation that I had such an anime on my MAL.
I marathoned the anime over the course of two days but I was already loving it by episode 3. I thought to myself “This anime! I like it! This appeals to me!” as I ate my lunch. So yes, if you haven’t guessed by now (Firstly, you must be really slow in the head to not have by now), today’s post would be my review of the anime, Canaan.
Sooo, for those that managed to catch my April’s Fool joke previously, ha! I now present to you the real post.
I’m joking about the title of course. Well….not that much. I’ve been intending to write this post for such a long time now. Pretty much ever since I got into Yuri and people (who know about my anime watching/manga reading habits) asking me why I loved it, I’ve been intending to write this.
First of all, I should give a short introduction of sorts on how I even got into Yuri. And actually, this is the exact same story on how I discovered the wonders of 2D since I found that out through Yuri. So yeah, Yuri is rather important to me. (That sounds rather…strange…)
Watch out, this show is on super high hnnnnnnnnnngggghhh alert.
Probably one of my most anticipated shows of the previous anime seasons (then again, I was looking forward to a lot of shows. Fate Zero and Last Exile Fam of Silver Wing to name a few), Tamayura Hitotose encompasses the story of Fu Sawatari as she moves back to her home town the unfortunate passing of her father. There, she meets with her old childhood friends and slowly comes back to terms with herself and her love for photography which she got from her father.
To summarize it, it’s a touching story of friendship, overcoming odds and grievances as well as enjoying life to the fullest. In other words, the perfect cure to a depressing day. I could never remain depressed after an episode. Personally, I think it’s humanely impossible to still be pissed after an ep. Unless of course, you weren’t paying attention to it.
Ok guys, for those of you who enjoyed Symphogear, I am terribly sorry. I did not enjoy it as much as I would expect to and the show does not seem to hold my interest. The first episode was so, so well done. After that it kind of went downhill a lot.
I will continue to watch it so if it does pick up, I will continue to blog. But until then, I will drop blogging it for the time being. And now for the first time, a negative post by me.
Once again, after a long wait, I bring you the next installment in my short story series, Forbidden Lilies. My usual editor has been hard-pressed to find the inspiration to do editing recently so this was edited by none other than LessThanFree. Give him a round of applause folks. Either way, enjoy the story!!!
Forbidden Lilies Part 5: At Odds
Aria sighed and put down her stylus before pushing the drawing tablet away. She groaned as she rubbed her eyes. A quick glance at the clock told her that it was 2.35am in the morning. She had stayed up the whole night trying to finish a commissioned artwork for her client’s website. It was pity she could not finish it today but she would not have been able to produce a quality product otherwise. Aria yawned and stretched as she continued to draw, feeling lethargic. “I’ll complete it tomorrow then!” she said to herself as she swiveled her chair around. Aria stood up and started to make her way towards the bathroom in her apartment when a movement from the bed caught her eye. Niko had turned over in her sleep and her crimson hair was in a fan around her head on the pillow.
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!
It didn’t take as long as Part 2 to produce because my editor could find time to edit it quickly. It started out with 600 words. Then I added some Yuri goggles and imagination so here’s 1,200 words or so of sweet Yuri. Enjoy
I have a very interesting and self-destructive way to decide if the manga i’m reading is good. I will read 1 chapter and if i attempt to marathon the rest regardless of what other tasks I have to do, its good. And so Blue, in my opinion, is gooood
It was recommended to me by anaaga and I was distraught when I realized I completed the whole thing in under 3 hours, which resulted in much nagging from my parents for not doing the housework or homework :P Mostly I was upset that it ended.

They say that love has no boundaries and this manga does prove that it indeed doesn’t. A beautiful yuri love story between a ghost who cannot pass on due to her regrets and the girl whom she loves. I decided to read this manga after reading a interesting conversation about it on Twitter. I had set this story aside for future reading but the conversation convinced me to start reading it instantly. And I have no regrets for doing so. It was probably the best thing I did during my exam period.
