I’m kind of late to the party but now I get why people have been waiting for years to watch the second season of One Punch Man. Now that I’ve […]
I have always been curious why there has been a strong following for Funimation’s anime series Shingeki No Kyojin aka Attack on Titan. Fans of the show often keep an […]
All in all, Nisekoi Live Action did a great job in compressing all the materials from the manga and the anime in just 118 minutes and fun and laughter. The storytelling was fluid and simple and the chemistry among the cast members was also very solid. This is why Japanese high school movies are the best. So cute. So earnest. So over the top. I loved it.
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?
So apparently, I just can’t seem to shut up about the best stuff about My Hero Academia so here are more reasons why you should seriously binge this series.
There are many things to like about this series, so much so that I risked going to work looking like a panda because I just couldn’t stop watching the episodes available on Netflix. Just to be clear, let me run down why I, for one, became an instant fan of the series. Be warned though, this is going to be a long post.
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, there was not enough time for Bleach to really tell its story but it did well enough with the time it was allotted. I think fans like myself would be satisfied with the approach but because we know what’s coming, we feel like there’s still a lot missing. Still, it was a good start — not yet an epic one, but it created enough excitement about what’s to come and that’s a success in my book.
It took me a while to finish the latest version of Meteor Garden compared to my previous dramas because let me just state for the record that this is the […]
All in all, Good Morning Call Season 2, like the original season, felt very familiar, heartwarming, and overflowing with cuteness and feelings. I once said that the original season often made me cry happy tears and the same rang true with season 2. Plus, better clothes, styling and cinematography. I can’t wait for Season 3. Paging #Netflix! Don’t make me wait too long!
All in all, I loved the contradictions — how mature and childish Uehara was at the same time. I loved how innocent and giving Nao was. They were polar opposites but when they came together, they worked. I loved their friends and their family. I felt like I was part of the house party at the end. Speaking of which, I loved the ending — in particular and how Hisashi took charge to speak with the landlady to resolve their housing problem and what his final request was. I loved that the ending could herald a second season but become a series ender as well with no regrets. On the technical side, I would still give cinematography and style to the Koreans but as a manga adaptation, I feel like this is one of the best for the Japanese. Can you tell how much I loved it? If you’re new to Jdramas, “Good Morning Call” is a definite must.
Before anything else, I would like to put it out there that I am a big Nodame Cantabile fangirl in any of its forms (manga, anime, live action) so if […]
As a fan of the Japanese anime, I was one of the many who was overjoyed when it was announced that finally, a studio has taken on the task of […]
I’ve known about Bleach for quite a while but it wasn’t until the first season began airing on a local cable channel that I got truly interested in this shounen […]
