ToraDora : Series Review

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.

Easily one of my favorite Japanese teen movies.… Read More Ao Haru Ride (Blue Spring Ride) Live Action: Review
