Remember that oblivious easy going friend back in school who was always upbeat always mysteriously in a good mood for no apparent reason. The classmate who got himself or herself in trouble and sometimes made you tag along for the ride. This is the same person who sometimes said and acted in ways that didn’t make a whole lot of sense, to many even to this day. Torako is that type of person. Not a whole lot intelligent with a short attention span and neither a lot coherent nor consistent. But much fun to be around. Continue reading

There’s no denying that high expectations of a series are based on how outstanding its other titles are. There is so much I’ve come to expect of Atlus after I became an avid SMT with DS, SJ, and Nocturne, continuously open to dive deeper into their world. The Fall comes and Persona 4 anime is announced and there comes the moment when the biggest decision is to watch or not watch an adaptation of a game you hadn’t touched before. After some thinking I said to myself why not? Let’s just watch this. Continue reading
Chihaya tactical push!
Chihayafuru is the type of show that solely based on the synopsis and no paying attention to the studio in question one would dismiss it as yet another generic, factory manufactured material or by one that is too dissimilar to one’s own tastes to like. The big news is that Chihayafuru is better than that.
I seriously like how Chihayafuru starts. It shows a dreadfully cliché list of sequences, the school gate, the ever-present cherry blossoms, and the students rushing to class. It’s like something gotten out of the school anime book, then it throws you curve ball with the oddball of a bishoujo looking to get members for an unpopular club. Chihayafuru you have my attention.

In the future, also, we have half-naked men running around, women are either pettanko or double DDs. They forgot to mention that too. Lack of enough info dump.
Now we know. Ok, seriously. Why is anime so confusing lately? I don’t mean that it’s intricate with so much depth that the concepts are hard to grasp in one go. I mean the total opposite, I’m talking about shows presented in a fashion so stripped from any sense that makes sense only to the creators of the show. This is something that I’d like to address in greater detail at some point, but I’ll leave that discussion for later. Anime, start making sense from the start or at least give us something that tells us you’re doing it on purpose. Continue reading
“Do you copy?” Yes, I copy. Summer not that great? You guys and your euphemism. There are some good and bad shows this Summer season. As usual it’s time to make a clear distinction among them. Continue reading

- Ten Wedges to Pierce Witches –
After they found the bodies from the first twilight everyone has gathered outside of Kinzo’s study room. Eva and the rest want to forcefully get inside so they can confirm whether Kinzo is dead or not. As we all know they already suspect he’s dead and they’re more interested in revealing that truth. Kyrie asks who was the last one to see Kinzo, Natsuhi answers that she was the last one who saw him and she was sure of it. Natsuhi mentions how Kinzo acts randomly (random grampa!) and he was known to go outside the mansion in the middle of the night. Kumasawa and the rest of the servants back her up on this claim. Gohda makes the stupid mistake of mentioning how he hasn’t seen the master since last year which makes him think that he doesn’t exist. Lol Gohda really isn’t in on it with the others. Didn’t tell you that even before I got to any of the other eps? They mentioned that since they can’t get through the door they should try to entering through the window, even if it means breaking it. Eva says that as the highest in rank (3rd I think) she gives permission for this and she will accept the full punishment Kinzo gives her. Natsuhi is pretty much screwed if she doesn’t think fast.
