Koi to Uso | Worth Watching?

Koi to Uso | Worth Watching?

Honestly, I can’t really say this show does an adequate job at developing its story. At its core, it puts emphasis on the theme of love. The show invites questions that makes us wonder what love actually is. What is romance? How do couples build on a love relationship? Why do we feel attracted to…

Ballroom e Youkoso | Worth Watching?

Watching Ballroom e Youkoso (Welcome to the Ballroom) feels like taking a journey down memory lane. I’m talking about the type of memory lane where you were once a kid and wanted to prove everyone you had talent in something. Academics, sports, art, acting, singing. Just anything in general that make your friend go “wow, I…

Fate/Apocrypha | Worth Watching?

I don’t want to jump the boat here but it felt like Fate/Apocrypha had to do a lot to please the viewers. Setting up a show with a story premise that involves two sides clashing for the ultimate prize sounds like a sensational attraction. It could really draw viewers, whether you’re a newbie or veteran…

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e | Anime Universe

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e | Anime Universe

The first episode introduces some of the main cast including main male protagonist Kiyotaka Ayankoji. It won’t take long to realize that he has a rather dry outlook on life and often try to avoid being noticed. My impression of Kiyotaka reminds me of the main male protagonist from Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy…

Kakegurui | Worth Watching?

The first episode definitely will get you into the mood as we meet Yumeko Jabami, the main protagonist and new transfer student. While Jabami may seem like an ordinary girl at first glance, it’s easy to notice how far she is from normal once she gets herself involved in gambling games. The show chronicles her…

Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha | Episode 4

Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha | Episode 4

This anime can actually be extremely confusing just based on how many plots have been introduced by the fourth episode. Anos’ reincarnation and his quest to reconquer the world he created. Someone pretending to be him, Anos Voldigoad, but under a different name and identity basically erasing the true Demon King from existence. The Misha…

Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha | Episode 3

Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha | Episode 3

The third episode was rather lackluster to say the least. I am beginning to see a trend here, as is with all anime that present the overpowered main character right from the start. We’re again shown Anos showing off his insane power and ability to foresee the future before it even happens. Despite that, let…

Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha | Episode 2

Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha | Episode 2

The second episode, sure is an interesting one. What the story does do is expand a little bit on Anos Voldigoad past life when he was the Demon King. It gave the smallest glimpse as to his mindset on wanting to end the war and to create a world of peace, even if that mean…

Oregairu 3 | Episode 2

Oh snapples! I sense a storm brewing! While this anime is a Slice of Life, Comedy, Drama, Romance, and School. Like always, something I will always mention, it’ll always lean more towards the Slice of Life, Rom-com aspect. However, this episode in particular, you can feel the shift towards the “drama” side of the anime. That part is for…
