I’m not generalizing, but it seems to me that there’s some predicament from some people that if something is Masaaki Yuasa anime, it automatically bonded to be something good. Don’t get me wrong, most of his works are exceptional and I liked most of it. I’m not generalizing as I think “The night is short” itself wasn’t a bad movie/ It had many good aspect to the point I can understand people to liking it, but It also just had fair and share problem to ever called it good and recommendable.

The First one is that it is hardly accessible and probably not the best read more

One thing to note is that Kakegurui never trying to be a smart. It isn’t exactly gambling show like Kaiji where the attention to detail is high. The games are more akin to the sorts of things teens make up for overnight school trips rather than what you’d see in a proper casino, the anime main feature is just to shows people acts unrealistically with an addition seeing female gets sexually aroused by the excitement of of gamble. It was cringy to watch, but you can’t deny quite possibly other people would find charms on its style.

Having said that, despite being rather more onto stylish read more

[Anime Short Review]

Traveling Daru is a short 10-minute film about a young girl who loses her plush toy as her family leaves for America and the journey the toy named Daru takes to reunite with her. It’s extremely sentimental in that the journey visits many sites while also cutting to the girl as she grows up. The loss of the toy has a profound effect on her life as she vividly remembers what it looked like even as she goes into running her own business. Daru’s journey is at times uplifting and depressing, but it wonderfully works out in the end after having traveled the read more

I’m not sure why I picked Just Because! But anyway it turned out to be a pleasant surprise.

The series at its core is a character-centric; which mean that no matter how the characters became; whether they're reach their goals or not, it is became a part of and affecting the story. There’s no big overarching plot to draw the viewers in actually. It’s pretty much about these five Student, and how their lives will play out over the next few months. The story essentially played out by the struggling of this character facing the transition to adulthood and also the problem they get when read more

[Anime Short Review]

The night on Taneyamagahara open with the conversation of the four workers in the night around a campfire. Three of them are talking about their experience during their life as workers. The story then move on to the conversation about weeds and oak trees about the season and their surround environment.

on the visual section, Simply put, The Night on Taneyamagahara is a brilliant piece of arts. Everything is hand-drawn, with fluid color almost as if it is a canvas painting animated. The backgrounds are detailed and encapsulate perfectly what japan is on the rural era.

The story however, Is a mixed bag. Taneyamagahara’s presentation read more

Servamp (Anime) add (All reviews)
I have seen plenty of Josei anime to the point I can surely say what makes it quite distinguishing from other genre is that most of the time, it consisting characters driven story and has high attention to the realism. Servamp caught my interest because it happens to fallen to be one of the genres and it ended up to be exceptional. Exceptional that it is so badly done that ends up being counterproductive.

The story of Servamp follows Mahiru... actually; the main story is pretty much covered in the synopsis, so there isn't much reason for me to regurgitate the same thing in different words. read more

Joker Game is certainly breath of fresh air but it is not a must see. It is one of those animes where every now and then you start thinking: 'Hey, this stuff looks promising” only to be hammered in the face a frame later on as you progress with the show.

Set in 1937 when the beginnings of World War II are starting to brew. The story follows the exploits of a small special spy organization called “D-Agency.” It started with the (supposed) main character who a new recruit of D-Agency without any special training got tricked by his spy-mates with something called “Joker Game”. It read more

Simply put, Mushishi is special. As a whole, it’s a fifty episode journey through the lives of the character, a grand slice-of-life about experiences and life lessons. It’s a unique work, because viewers don’t just watch this series; they drift slowly into its dreamy world. The origins of Mushi are mysterious, but their presence undoubtedly affects people’s lives. The focus is however, not on the Mushi, but the people who come in contact with them and how their lives are changed after their mysterious encounter. As a story, somehow nothing is complex, yet everything is meaningful, each episodes features different yet connected stories. The way read more
