Quote (Anime) add (All reviews)
The album, Quote, from Suda Keina is very close to being a masterpiece.

Containing the three songs and music videos of Red, Cambell, and Amador, we are brought into a world of realizations: dreams will be dreams (Red), life is tragic (Cambel), and lies bring pain and distress (Amadore).

Avogado6 does a really wonderful job at portraying the rich lyrics of Suda Keina's work through animation.

With the help of the masterfully coloured objects in the animations, we are being told a story of a path one takes when experiencing these realizations. The art aligns perfectly with the lyrics of every song. The simplicity and representations of objects read more

*Contains spoilers of the lyrics, for those of you that understand Japanese*

This song made by Kenshi Yonezu really has inspiring lyrics. It speaks of the love life between two which has ended, to which he compares it having gone back in time to before they met.

The meaning of the title, Metronome, is due to how their lives were always in sync until their tempos started growing apart, towards their inevitable separation. The singer sings of how he regrets not saying the things he's thought of and has hope of the two being back together. It is a beautifully hopeful yet sad story.

The art/animation was read more

Nowisee (Anime) add (All reviews)
To beging with, Nowisee, which is intended to be said as "Noise", is a Japanese band whose purpose is to be competitive with other popular bands without having to resort to appearances or identity. In fact, the people creating the music are unknown. The philosophy behind the band is that it is just noise being produced in order to create beautiful, meaningful music about the meaning of life and the meaning of the world itself.

This is a truly inspiring 24-episode series of music videos brought forth to us by this band, with a very particular structure in every piece. The slow, calm build-up in every read more

The story features two personalities of the same girl wondering what love is about (giving or taking). The art and animation are very well on par with the music's pacing and the use of DECO*27's Rock genre instruments fits the story really well.

Marina's singing is also done so in a very melodic voice, dragging the words and notes brilliantly to emphasize their meaning. She also matches her singing to the beat of the song.

The song also has a very catchy chorus which is repeated with a different intonation, which follows the emotions of the characters. The build up movement from the music is also read more

Kakukaku Shikajika (spoiler free review)
Wow, this story is exactly what manga is about, literally and in meaning.

I've always loved how close the relationship between author and viewer is, which is what ultimately made me adore manga so much... Is this my first time reading an autobiography? Maybe, my memory sucks. But wow, to be able to live this woman's life as days went by, with her present perspective on her past, her knowledge... It's truly magical; not much else to add (jk, ofc there's more).

What she put at the end of her last volume is especially original and I felt it was read more

What a rollercoaster.

I am not writing this in order to review every aspect of the series. It is mostly an opiniated, subjective review of what I felt was missed, loved, or completely went wrong. Sorry in advance if I sound like I'm a hater, because that is not what I am. I enjoyed this series to a certain extent, but ... just read it if you want to know. :T

Let's start by my melodramatic rant of a series I had high expectations of at the first half and then let's go into what I liked. You could just skip to this part if you read more

Preliminary
Wow, I just went and checked the ratings and reviews on it on MAL, and everyone is being way too harsh on it. This has pushed me to write my own review to actually be informative instead of it being all about bitching about the series. It's your own faults for looking up anime from the synopsis only. Pupa is proof that the only way to know if the series is good or not is by checking it out yourself or asking others.

I will try spoiling as little as I can the storyline and contents of the episodes.

Since the synopsis is on this site, read more

Shikabane Hime : Kuro is the continuation of the series Shikabane Hime : Aka. There's not really a difference in time, it just continues like if it were the same series. My review will contain spoilers - the first part of this review is basically full of my emotions, whereas the second part is a bit more objective - hope you enjoy.

This is one of the best watches I've had in a LONG time. Action (GOOD action), DEATHS (YES), Horror, Drama, this shit is straight up awesome and really, the "unfinished ending" does not really bother, since the anime has everything pretty much covered read more
