This was a pretty bombastic first episode. I have no idea why that word is the one that popped into my head, but there you have it. It was what I expected in some ways, but completely deviated from my expectations in other ways.

General statement(tl;dr): It’s good, but…somewhat confusing in a lot of ways? But that’s something uniquely Fate so it’s forgivable for now. Continue reading “Anime first impressions: Fate/Extra Last Encore”

Now, it is really here… baby! — Shokamoka’s Blog of Wonders

So, we had the podcast.

I’m too lazy to rewrite this whole post for Shoka but one clarification–

I really don’t have a waifu, and no I just answered Astolfo because they were just saying “Answer Astolfo LUL” and I just wanted you guys to be satisfied with anything really.

And yup. Someone Shoka had the time to write this post and I didn’t. Figures.

But hey, there’ one new First Impressions post incoming!

-A voice-changed Plyasm

Thank you to every one of the lovely *cough* peoples involved! They say that first time is usually the hardest, which is why there will be more of us because we have been there and done that!

Some podcast thing, I guess.

…the title made it sound really depressing, eh?

But nope! It’s a party session! Whooo!

And yes, you read that right! I’ll be participating in a podcast. The podcast is hosted by Astral from his Zodiac Room, and I wouldn’t be the only participant!

There will be Shoka from his hellhole

Irina from her beautiful bar

And more!

Either way, I’m really happy(and extremely excited) to be a participant in this, and I hope I can entertain when the time comes!

The time of the podcast? 12 hours from now!(Sorry for the late announcement :P)

P.S. I will be using a voice changer to change my voice.

It’s Cold Outside – Time for a Blogwarming — I drink and watch anime

Hm. I don’t post for a while and the first post to come up in a while is yet another promotion for another blog? You got that right.

I don’t have any excuses, but hopefully the posts Irina has looked over here will appease you people.

Well 2018 started with a BANG, or in my case, an avalanche! Between the rugged weather we’ve been getting up here, the sort of drowsy, frantic scramble everyone has been going through to get back into the swing of things after the holidays both at work and here, I found that there just weren’t enough […]

Citrus: Yea no.

Still confused about what exactly is the focus of this series, I’ve decided to drop it, not because of a bad episode or anything, but simply because I can’t stand this feeling of uneasiness while watching.

This anime is pretty good. In terms of animation and sound, it is visually nice while pleasing my ears all the while too. I really have no complaint for this series with regards to those two.

But, I can’t help but drop it. Ever since my first impressions, I have been having a bad feeling with regards to watching this anime. It started as a confusion over whether it is an ecchi anime or yuri anime. Then it turned into extreme confusion, and now with the third episode I really don’t even know anymore. Is this supposed to be ecchi? Or it’s pure yuri romance?

Whichever way it goes, I’m not really into either. Furthermore, there is something in this series that just does not sit right with me for some reason. I can’t pinpoint it but it has to do with the female MC.

…And I’ll now gladly drop this series to watch others that can entertain me better. If you are a fan of yuri romance, however, by all means, watch this series.

 

Final rating: 7/10
Verdict: “As of today, you’re expelled!”

Darling in the FranXX. A name to compete with Hakata Tokotsu Ramens in terms of “names that makes no sense on first look”. Giant robots? Evangelion look-alike! Character design? As typical as possible!
…wait, what did you say? A collaboration between A-1 pictures and Studio Trigger?! SIGN ME UP!! Anime original? HELL YEA!

So…yup. That’s about sums up Darling in the FranXX. Thanks for reading this last first impressions!

A less than impressive start so far, Beatless has to do a lot more than just looking good in order to remain on my watching list.

General statement(tl;dr): A pretty bad starting episode that leaves much to be desired.

Well, after this episode, the mystery of the name of this series still remains unresolved. Why does the name contain “ramen” even though the main plot is about assassins? We will never know, for now at least.

Still, the name aside, this anime had a really solid starting and already makes me want to watch more.

General statement(tl;dr): A great starting that does its job well and makes me want more. Continue reading “Anime first impressions: Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens”

NOTE: Post is a few minutes late, forgive me. I slept too long today!

Following the trend of cute girls doing cute things this season, we now have cute girls doing cute things: small girls in fantasy world edition!

However, through this first episode, I’ve spotted quite a few things that will separate this series apart from all the others so far.

General statement(tl;dr): Heartwarming everyday lives of two very tiny girls.
