People with wild imagination can relate to this anime. Just like the synopsis tells, everyone has their own little world inside their minds. It's not very acceptable to talk about them in the public, it makes most people uncomfortable.

It might be just that some people don't have this "skill" or maybe it's not as vibrant and strong. These people might have a hard time understanding people who have a really strong "world" (imagination.). Most strong worlded people learn to "tone it down" and they don't talk about their worlds out in the public. They might even end up feeling guilty if they get lost read more

Yoshiwara Hana Oboro is one of those mangas that I just read for fun in the evenings before I fall asleep. This manga is really short so I was able to complete it. I have a few things to say about this manga...

[Some weird rant]
I know this manga is targeted towards young girls, and these type of romantic shoujos often have a similar thing in common: trust into shady people and they will end up being decent and loving. The love interest of our protagonist is an owner of a brothel, but he is a really good guy. Somehow.
I don't say that just because someone read more

This short manga really hit hard. It seems like it tackled some real issues and events that some people might have experienced. At least it sometimes felt like someone had read my diary or something!

An otaku girl who is in love with a 2D-character... We've all been there. But then BOOM reality starts hitting her! How can she manage relationships in real life?

What really made my heart warm and fuzzy was how Koino (the main character) starts to realize how "real" and strong real life romances can be. How holding hands for the first time is a big deal and all...
It's funny because I read more

There wasn't many reviews so I decided to change that.

what can I say about this piece? It's extremely short, but worth the read. It's different stories about womanhood and obstacles in life.

The stories have very serious topics like unwanted pregnancies, self harming, eating disorders and the like.
Some of the stories take a bit more symbolistic route, but all of them are easily understandable. I noticed that I had to take a break after each story because the subjects were so heavy that I couldn't focus on the next story without thinking the previous one through. Thought provoking would be accurate word here. I don't know read more

This used to be one of my favourite movies as a kid. It also made me scared of meat-eater-plants, octopuses and falling stars. Especially falling stars...

I may be a little bit biased with this one, but I noticed that there was not a single review for Moomins! I tried not to put too high ratings, but it's so hard. I already feel like I'm giving it lesser score that I actually think it deserves. Sometimes it's hard to be objective...

So where should I begin? Yes, it's a "children's movie", Moomins are targeted for children (which is odd since the original source, Tove Jansson, didn't emphasize read more

Preliminary
I first heard about this manga from a friend of mine. I was excited since she is really harsh and critical so she must know what is a good read...
but then I read the synopsis. I was so let down, "this is so used theme!". I didn't like the main character and her original attentions and reasons. I avoided the series...
Up until I accidentally payed a crunchyroll membership I forced myself to take a good use of it and came up with Skip Beat. I decided to give it a shot... Before I knew it I had binged the whole anime. I instantly switched to read more
