There was a lot of hype surrounding the movie I Want to Know Your Parents. Its not about […]

All in all, horrible. Loose ends that were tied up with a half arsed narration from the person who least deserved to survive (okay, he’s not the absolute worst but he’s like the top 3). In short, an ending that simply told viewers that they wasted 10 hours of their lives watching this drivel, and all for nothing.
After seeing the first installment, I am still baffled by the good reviews that the series received. Were we even watching the same show?
Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie had great animation from Doga Kobo studio (which also happen to be the studio behind Oshi No Ko), a wonderful story, great voice actors and music. Its really a wholesome way to spend your time if you’re in the mood to be happy.
For sure, The Price of Breaking Up is not going to be a boring series. It goes against the trope and 20 episodes in, there is a lot more that needs to be unpacked. Stunning art too.
The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten is really something that will make your heart flutter. The downside — it will make your jaws stiffen from smiling too much. It progresses slowly and takes its time to develop the relationships of its main protagonists but it just helps you want the best ending for it, and that’s completely alright. Perfect for light viewing.
While the season ended on a positive note, with Deku finally reunited with his friends and safely within the walls of UA, I would very much like to take this breather in between seasons to recover from the massive emotions that came with Season 6’s developments. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride for sure with the three remaining arcs in the manga left to be animated. My poor heart better be prepared.
My Hero Academia Season 6 raised the stake so much higher with the first showdown of Shigaraki’s All for One and Deku’s One for All and it was interesting to see how the current wielders of the Quirks were in a race to see who masters theirs first. I cried so much and had my heart pounding for hours on end as the battle raged on. With the hanging ending of the first showdown, the final battle between Deku and Tomura promises to be one for the books.
For My Hero Academia Season 5, I love that on both sides, the camaraderie has shaped up quite nicely, and exploring these relationships help fans invest more in these characters — what happens to them, whether they make it to the end or not. In any case, MHA just seems to get better with every installment, great stories from mangaka Kohei Horikoshi, and great animation from Studio Bones.
It was a good film. It was deliberate in its quietness but director Lorcan Finnegan and writer Garrett Shanley knew what they were doing and knew exactly where they wanted their film to go. Nocebo did not rely on cheap jump scares for a quick reaction but rather built up towards an ending that was well worth waiting an hour and a half for. Great acting, solid story, and brilliant execution, despite the obvious limitations in the budget. If you’re prone to nightmares, this may well be a trigger. You’ve been warned.
