Hey hey!!

Sorry it took me a little while to get back to you. With longer replies, I like to take in all of your thoughts and think a little while as to what things to say as every sentence you write always has great meaning. :)

I'm really glad that you are watching Say I Love You! Indeed it's a very good anime and if you haven't finished it already, it's a heartwarming romantic tale. Paradise Kiss sounds pretty enticing after looking at its entry on MAL. The only thing I am hesitant about it is possibly its unique art style. I prefer my characters to have a realistic feel to them but if the anime's story is good, which it sounds like it is, then I would not mind the artwork. I'm not really into Yaoi but the premise of Love Stage!! sounds absolutely hilarious!

It's really difficult to describe Nisekoi. The first season was quite entertaining but since it's a harem, there is not much love coming from the heart, or in other words, love that feels real. Nevertheless, it does a good job of balancing development between each female lead. However, if you have gotten to the second season, things start to fall apart. It lacks the charm of the first season.

I think if you don't finish it, you will not miss out on anything.

In Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, I definitely did see how it took a different way of telling a shoujo story. I did appreciate how Shizuku was a strong character who, in my opinion, had much fewer problems than the typical shoujo female lead. Like you said, she had an exceptional self-control when it came to her emotions and it was a relief to see someone evaluate their emotions before moving to the next step.

Perhaps my biggest complaint was Haru because I couldn't quite figure why he was such a violent person and the anime didn't solve that mystery for me. I recall they did a small flashback to his past but I felt the story didn't capture those moments and use them to round out his character. And that chicken...he (? I can't recall the name Haru gave it) was a tad annoying.

You have, however, further convinced me that I should give My Little Monster another shot. Maybe I wasn't fully relaxed when watching the show so I should clear my mind and start fresh!

I will get to NANA soon! After Clannad: AS, I haven't felt anything that touched the bottom of my heart so I am really looking forward to watching! Oh, and Honey and Clover is also another one that I want to watch as well. I would absolutely love to hear your thoughts from Say I Love You!! I can't describe my excitement when I get to read something that you write because your reviews are simply meticulously crafted and well-articulated. Please continue to publish reviews!!

Didn't notice your review on My Little Monster on your About Me profile until today! Haha! I didn't have a favourable opinion of that anime as I thought it was really drawn out. But I recall feeling really sleepy when watching it so maybe I should give it a whirl again after reading your opinion on it!

Btw, your Nana review is awesome. I haven't seen it yet but I will be soon!

Hey dude!

NANA...it's pretty highly rated in the YouTube recommendations video for romance and now that you recommend it as well, I'll probably take a look at it. The reason I don't have it on my list is that the artwork was really strange to me, just like Clannad. It was a turn-off for me but I think I should give it a try and focus on the story aspect of it.

Chihayafuru sounds neat! I'm scared of going into rage mode if I don't see the characters get together but hinting at the romance is a nice tease like you said. I think my next few anime-watching projects are set: NANA and Chihayafuru!

Looking back at my own review for Sakurasou, I feel I gave it too high of a RF. Like in your review, the focus of the show was on school and the individual struggles of the characters, not on romance. Personally, I enjoyed how the writers showed the MCs "losing" because more often than not, most shows just have the characters get everything, which makes the story feel unrealistic.

Regarding the romance, it didn't pop out of nowhere, especially between Sorata and Shiina. You could see that the writers wanted them to be together. I also agree with you about Aoyama. She is the best girl in the anime and her and Sorata should have gotten together (remember the practicing her lines on Sorata's bicycle? That was such a great scene).
I don't think you were too harsh on the series. You were definitely spot on about how romance was in the back seat and how the show was mostly about challenges. I really liked your quote about the crying for losing a competition and how at your age, it's like "whatever." I definitely feel the same way there!

Btw, your comments are definitely not clumsy. I really enjoy reading perspectives so I greatly appreciate you sharing yours!! Thanks!!

I just started True Tears (4 episodes in) and the romance is turning out to be really good!!

Hey! I really like all types of genres so I just float from one to the other tbh ^^ Kimi ni Todoke was really cute but I know what you mean about staying motivated.. It does get more interesting though so I guess you should keep going! I actually have been planning on watching Clannad and thanks for the suggestions~

How's Witch Hunter Robin coming along?

Thank you. I think this is one of the rare moments when I can say

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU TOO! Haha.

I'm sorry I don't have a picture to go with it though. (I don't even know how to attach one.) Haha.

Have a great birthday and a happy new year.
chesudesu Dec 28, 2014 8:14 AM
I found it strange that we have the same birthday. Well, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! ^_^

I laughed so hard while reading your message XD yes it's too much to ask for XD I don't really watch hentai for the plot but for the sex and some of it is really badly drawn and wheni judge it I say just that lol I say the drawing style was crap. A lot of hentai's have dull cliché plots and a lot of the time I like hentai mangas better or yaoi.

I don't know why but I loved the weird hair in Shiki and I was in love with Ozaki's hair! It suits him so well ^^
