just because! 8-11


this show is so masterfully done – i’m sure if i watched this as a high school student it would have a huge impact on me. or perhaps the high-school student part of me has.

these back to back shots from the OP tells the entire plot.

netojuu no susume


(the english translation/title is terrible)

i always enjoy a show with main characters older than high school age.

this was quite a quaint slice of life romance that deals with real issues (NEET, social anxiety, isolation, etc). it does have a happy ending that makes you smile, but the nervousness is a bit too agreeable.

recommended for anyone looking for anyone looking for what i just described. ha

first minute of this show and i knew it would be an awesome show.

the grit, the … moyamoya, the mkdsflffdsjf

the art, acting, OST all amazing.

this love pentagon business

this is slice of life done right. the body language and messages between the lines and the atmosphere – absolute perfection.

i originally did not want to continue it because it seemed like another school / romance show. well it is. but it isn’t.

yes it takes place in this specific cultural-age context, but there is a universality that it does well.

but the important question –  natsume or komiya.

shokugeki no soma – s3 – 12 (END… i think)


season 4 in the spring it looks like.

i would have really liked it if they animated mito ikumi and tadokoko megumi’s shokugekis

the OP was such a tease – the episode barely showed anything more than the OP. dah!

welcome to the ballroom – 24 – END


what a rollercoaster.

the bittersweetness – i’m sad that this is the end.

i would give it a rank B – I wouldn’t watch it again my own, but wouldn’t mind watching it with someone.
