Shounen Ai which is a literal meaning in Japenese “Boys Love” is been around in the anime industry dating back in the late ’80s. Beginning its roots on Natsu e no Tobira for being the first movie and Patalliro! Both made by Toei animation. Only a handful of them exists mostly on OVAs and Movies but not much on TV series. Shounen Ai TV series for the most part doesn’t give much of an impact in both popularity and financial gain so the studios stopped making them. They are more like the shadows in the corner that only a selected few can notice their existent. read more

Arakawa Under the Bridge Review Part 1

[STORY ELEMENT PRESENTATION 7/10] [GOOD FOR A ROM COM]

Arakawa Under the Bridge from the title itself is the main setting of the story, almost all major chain of events and interactions take place here. A strange setting to circle a romance comedy. The joke has somewhat a modern take in the presentation, for it uses a combination of interchanging camera angle views, a wholesome amount of different color pallets to intensify emotional symbolism, and continued with a constant stream of jokes that built upon a major punch line. Put all this recipe together, you would have a very charming read more

{This content might contain possible spoilers}

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso or Your Lie in April narrative is simple, easy to follow, and predictable at times. It has a combination of school life, emotional drama, and some kiddy romance and on the cherry on top, music that focuses on the sound made by the elites.

Then I realize this show is not what it seems to be. Starting off with the read more
