It took a lot of chapters to bring Tomo and Jun’s journey to a close (Like I said, Jun decides really slowly) but everything just made sense in the end. Everything happened at the perfect time and iI, for one, was really happy how it played out. I wouldn’t giving this entire manga another read because its just so much fun. It makes me so excited to see how the last three episodes of the anime would play out.
As with every zombie film or series, there are characters whom fans root for but there are some […]
All of Us Are Dead was like School 2020 Meets Train to Busan. It kept up the suspense until the last episode. It was a well executed nail biter that even if it was not the most original of ideas, still made the series entertaining with a lot of close calls, and gore. Great casting for the main and supporting roles, and who could resist shipping a bunch of nice looking kids in the middle of a zombie wasteland? We all have to look forward to something right?
All in all, Our Beloved Summer is a beautiful tale about knowing your worth, recognizing love and dealing with pain, and just knowing that its never to wrong to reach out and ask for help when you need it. It speaks to every one of us, and that is a testament to some excellent writing by Lee Na Eun and directing from Kim Yoon Jin.
I was super glad to take the recommendation of my dear friend and fellow Asian drama addict Sheila […]
All in all, ToraDora easily climbed up to the list of my favorite shoujo animes because it was cute, light, interesting and truthful, albeit exagerrated on the violence part (It is an anime, after all). I particularly loved the last two episodes on how they closed the journey of the five main characters on a hopeful note. Personally though, I would have chosen a kiss as a final frame for Ryuji and Taiga after all they’ve been through instead of a classic head butt but if you bring a tiger and a dragon together, you have to expect something uncoventional. Two thumbs up for this series. If I had more thumbs, I would raise them all. How’s that for a recommendation?
All in all, I think that Ao Haru Ride was very poignant and beautiful. It slowly told its story but made it complete so as not to leave out the essential parts of the manga on which it was based. I’m glad that it had a happy ending though. I felt like I deserved that, after this emotional, beautiful film put me in the wringer. Easily one of my favorite Japanese teen movies.
All in all, I give #ToAllTheBoysIveLovedBefore a thumbs up. Its not rocket science but it manages to deliver on a feel-good romantic comedy and reminds us all what its like to be confused and in love for the first time.
All in all, The CW really pulled all the stops to make Riverdale completely different from what comic book fans expected and it was a gamble that mostly paid off. It generated interest in the new series but also piqued the interest of its new fans to see what the difference with the original material was — and vice versa. Its off to a good start, and by breaking the chains of its connection with its source material, it also liberated itself to tell its story in its own way and the journey promises to be exciting as it is dark. I think though, that its not gonna be for everybody’s taste.
