Hataraku Maou-sama!! | First Impressions

Hataraku Maou-sama!! | First Impressions

Without a doubt in anyone’s mind, Hataraku Maou-sama!! was highly anticipated. For years, many people like myself, have always wondered when there would be a second season. Hataraku Maou-sama! happened to be one of them. I remember watching the first season all those many years ago in 2013. Who would’ve thought that after almost ten…

Lycoris Recoil | Episodes Four and Five

Lycoris Recoil | Episodes Four and Five

I’ve figured out why I like Lycoris Recoil so much, it’s because it’s an original from A-1 Pictures. It’s not everyday you see something labelled as an ‘original work’. More often than not, especially in today’s world, everything is an adaptation of something. But anyway, allow me to share my thoughts on episodes four and…

Hataraku Maou-sama!! | Episodes Two and Three: Family?

Hataraku Maou-sama!! | Episodes Two and Three: Family?

I’ll be honest, I think the revised art style has been a little harder for me to stomach than originally expected. Compared to that of several years ago, season two (with regards to art style) is definitely a negative for me. For some reason they look at little too playful. But I’ll save that rant…

Engage Kiss | First Impressions.

Engage Kiss | First Impressions.

Yandere types have always been hit or miss for me. Furthermore, the whole concept behind Engage Kiss is questionable. The whole concept of kissing your partner in order to gain power ups is something we’ve seen before. Campione! for example, is one where Godou gains his power through the power of the kiss. Not to…

Yofukashi no Uta | First Impressions

Yofukashi no Uta | First Impressions

Yofukashi no Uta has been a very… interesting anime to say the least. Which you can say is good because that would mean it left a fairly good impression on me, but I beg a differ. Allow me to explain. Kou Yamori seems like a typical middle school student on the surface. Relatively good at…

Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru | First Impressions

Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru | First Impressions

Like all Slice of Life anime, which is what I consider Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru to be. Unless you have something that distinguishes yourself from the rest you end up becoming like all the others, and I think that’s the case for Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru. On a whim, first-year Ayumu Tanaka quits the Kendo…

Yofukashi no Uta | Episode Three: Confusion.

Yofukashi no Uta | Episode Three: Confusion.

Much to say, episode three of Yofukashi no Uta was a very confusing one. I say confusing because we now have one other individual who knows that ko-kun is hanging out at night with a vampire, Nazuna-chan. The person in question being Akira. The reason why I thought the episode itself was one of confusion…

Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru | Episode Three: Date?

Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru | Episode Three: Date?

Not only have we had the sports day episode, but now we’ve also had the school festival episode. Wowie, it looks like Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru isn’t leaving them (like many other anime) towards the end of the anime. Big up on them, for sure. In a weird way, I guess you can say that…

Lycoris Recoil | First Impressions

Lycoris Recoil | First Impressions

Overall I’d say that Lycoris Recoil has been one of those anime I’ve come to really enjoy and I’ve only watched three episodes. The concept itself seems straightforward. The story takes place in Japan where we have girls known as ‘Lycoris’ (individuals who were orphaned at a young age) taken in by the DA and…

Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru | Episode Two

Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru | Episode Two

Doesn’t the sports festival usually occur towards the latter stages of the anime? You know, like during episodes seven or eight. Soredemo Ayumu wa Yosetekuru is an anime already trying to be different and I’ll hand it to them. Episode two in particular gave off Tsurezure Children vibes because of how the episode was split…
