Without a doubt, Gakkou Gurashi hit me hard. I took a dive into the show with some knowledge of its unconventional twist while still expecting a less serious, more silly vibe just because it looked cute, but that was too optimistic of me. Yeah...too optimistic, indeed.

It all started in a happy-go-lucky kind of way. A new day welcomes the child-like Yuki as she readies herself to emanate happiness once more in her beloved school, which happens to be her living place too. But that's inherent for all the members of the read more

Cathartic in nature, GochiUsa is a heartwarmer that has its roots in providing contentment—similar to the relaxation one can feel from sipping freshly-brewed coffee. With an ample amount of lovable charms and a cuteness as cute as the twitches of a bunny's nose, it's the ideal to show to hearten oneself. I mean, just look at my smiling face!

But let's be clear first. The show doesn't have the most imaginative story as it follows pretty much all the things other CGDCTs have. Instead, it's in its setting—a town with European resemblances—that gives GochiUsa a special read more

Okay. Let me first say that the gayness in Yuru Yuri is more of a thing to embellish the main comedic core than what I'd call real romance. But hey, it's still a fun CGDCT show! And the other dated definition of gay means cheerful anyways, which fits the show, so yeah...I guess it's actually quite gay!

When there's a school club, and it's rightfully termed the Amusement Club, you know a whole lotta mischiefs are awaiting ahead of you. Mischiefs inside their club room. Mischiefs in the comfort of their homes. Mischiefs pretty much everywhere! read more

Bandori has a soul that is emboldened by its quest to discover music—and it's that initial encouragement that swept me along Poppin'Party's ride towards becoming their own band. After having seen this, I can say that while it may not be the most perfect show out there, it's still an origin story filled with plenty of sparkling and heart-pounding moments.

To form the all-girl band called Poppin'Party, Kasumi—an oddball who has an energetic heart and a voice that blissfully melts my heart—has to meet the other members first, and earlier segments of the show introduce us read more

There is no stopping the furies of mother nature. Destructions with uncontrollable capacities, natural disasters are a wake-up call to humanity, leaving behind ruins that signal a time of healing and strengthening to those who survived through such an ordeal. Rising up from the rubbles, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 is a story about reality; one that reveals the facets of humanity as it gradually explores the aftermath of a seismic convulsion.

In the sultry annoyance of summer, an already sour middle-schooler by the name of Mirai is unwillingly dragged to a robot exhibition that her younger brother, read more

See, the thing about young love is that it brings out our inexperienced selves. Many of us turn into an awkward, flustered, and cringey bundle of foolishness because we have no idea how to initially go on about a relationship, but despite the embarrassments, lovebirds will try to make their relationship work together. That's the part that touches me the most and Tsurezure Children shows us just how endearing that quality is.

A simple change on a fluffy anime genre is all you need to describe the heart of the show: Cute Couples Doing Cute Things.

Right. Let's talk about Kill la Kill. If there's one show out there that will proudly take the title of 'Extravagant Craziness', then this show will do just that and display it in a blinding beacon for the whole world to see; while being bare-naked in fact! Or to put it another way, it's basically an extraordinary trip through everything that you can find in an action anime.

My reaction, or set of reactions I should say, from the first episode can be extended throughout the whole show. That one single episode is honestly enough to read more

Honestly, it's not easy to concisely describe just how vivid the second season of School Idol Project is. A beautiful outburst of the soul. A melodic magic that lifts the heart. A lyrical expression full of emotions. These words are close enough to express how I feel but really, it's better if you listen to µ's ("Muse") once more. Because as the saying goes:

"Where words fail, music speaks."

Every journey will always have a start and an end; and within it, there will always be a story. The story of µ's began as a school-saving solution, read more

They're an icon. The symbol of friendship, hope, love, passion, and music admired by those who have seen them. They will show you that enthusiasm and dedication do pay off. They're µ's ("Muse"), an ensemble of nine harmonious members. And they're the idol stars of School Idol Project!

I'll preface by saying that I first dived into the Love Live! franchise just looking to enjoy some catchy songs and CGDCT. Which I did get. All of those are right here in this show. But there's also something else—a special quality that draws a motivational and inspirational read more
