I don't normally go for movies due to their length and my limited time. But I was pleasantly surprised to see that there was a sequel to the Seibuta anime and that it seemed to have done well by MAL rating standards. I decided to check it out.

It's been a while since the Seibuta anime aired, and my memory is foggy, but this movie really fell short of the anime and my expectations for it.

Let's start with the easier parts to review. The art is basically the same as the anime's. I read one other review after watching the movie, and I do agree that read more

This will be a very long review (I dare to call it an essay!), and while it may not exactly contain spoilers, I have included 'hints' which one may wish to look out for in watching this anime.

Personally, out of all the other studios, I find myself following and noticing trends in Kyoani's releases the most. After all, while the moe wave was not (exactly) started by them, K-On contributed hugely to it, and from there, I found myself observing how Kyoani seems to have very acute marketing tendencies - they would just somehow hit the demographics right, appealing to various clusters of viewers while read more

"A Beauty risen from Ashes..."
Such is one way to describe Tamako Love Story, and its relation to its prequel, Tamako Market.

For those of you that have watched Tamako Market, perhaps this question crossed your mind, "What was KyoAni thinking in making this?"
I could not answer that question convincingly.
Tamako Market was arguably conceived on the principles of Slice-of-life/Moe that occupy a niche in the anime industry - and with titles such as K-On and Chuunibyou under their belt, Tamako Market was yet another to add to the list.
Yet, Tamako Love Story is a whole world apart from the movies of the other two titles.

This title was one that was referred to so many times that eventually, I could no longer afford to ignore it.

I am glad that I finally made the choice to give it a shot, and my Lord, that was an incredible ride on so many fronts.

I have not had any prior experience with the manga (I've only gone through 3 chapters, just to see how much different it could be), and the previous anime TV adaptation i have left untouched as... well, mainly on the basis that this was something far more mind-blowing.

First off, I'm writing this review more as a review for the entire series, rather than just this OVA itself, as the OVA itself does not contain the entire essence of this series. In addition, I have neither read the light novels, nor it's manga adaptation, so my memory of the anime itself is my only gauge for this.

As you would know, the basic premise of this story lies in the development of the relationship between the series two main protagonists, Nogizaka Haruka, and Ayase Yuuto.

Essentially, this story is best described by the evil "C" word - Cliche. You can roughly expect to read more
