Favorite Anime: Day 5 #12daysofanime

It’s hard for me to pick what my favorite anime that I watched this year is. In terms of genre I can tell you my favorite anime in each specific genre. It’s hard for me to pick an overall favorite when it comes to anime. A lot of anime these days are very set in…

Re: Zero Ep. 16: Play by Play

“The greed of a pig” Subaru is at his lowest and most desperate point right now. His true colors are starting to show thru and it is truly amazing. This episode has a very heavy theme of negotiation and desperation. Let’s begin… Subaru is walking back to the Crusch mansion, walking thru the gate he…

Re: Zero Ep. 15: Play by Play

“The outside of madness” This episode was amazingly directed and animated. The ending credits was fresh and so impacting. Let’s begin. Subaru is standing at the gate of the mansion, struck with horror. He sees Rem, dead with a knife in her back. He begins to search around for anyone still alive. He finds Ram,…

“The sickness called despair” The most accurate thing I can say about Subaru right now is mentally unstable and disgusting. Right now at this point in the story he’s acting like an obsessed boyfriend who thinks that his girl is powerless without him. I am blown away by the development for Subaru! Let’s begin… Subaru,…

“Self-proclaimed Knight Natsuki Subaru” A very impactful episode indeed. The decisions Subaru made this episode will hang heavy on his conscious. Let’s get into it. We pick up where we left off, in the ballroom discussing more about the next ruler. We see that Felt is not too pleased with Reinhard about dressing her up…

Re: Zero Ep. 12: Play by Play

“Return to the Capital” All I can say about this episode is HOLY SHIT! So many characters came back from previous episodes, we got ourselves a trap, and a crazy twist at the very end of the episode. Let’s jump in shall we? We begin with rows of children doing exercises with Subaru. They are…

No Game No Life Vol. 2: Ground Zero

And we’re back at it with more laziness, debauchery, and complex strategies that go straight over my head. Only the classiest for No Game No Life! To start out we get a recap of how the previous volume ended. We awake with our favorite trio Sora, Shiro, and Steph early in the morning. After some…

A Certain Magical Index: Ground Level

I’ve been putting off this show for quite some time now. I know it is a great show, I’ve heard nothing but great things about it. I finally have time to start this show and hopefully I’ll be able to finish this in a timely manner. From the first 4 episodes, not much has been…

Re: Zero Ep. 10: play by play

“Fanatical methods like a demon” What happened? Where am I? “Oh… another unfamiliar ceiling.” Any body else get that Neon Genesis Evangelion reference? Subtle but nice. Subaru wakes up in yet another new bed. Beatrice, Rem, and Emilia all work together to help save Subaru from dying (again). He is saved, which means all his…

Re: Zero Ep. 9: play by play

I’m so upset with the ending of the episode! This was such a good episode. Lots of development is happening for a lot of characters. So this episode continues with Subaru and Rem going to he village to get supplies. During his time there, he makes sure to let each member of the village touch…

My weekend manga haul

So this weekend I found out there was a half priced books store near my parents house. I originally went there to look at cheap books about Chinese economy and partical physics but saw a huge manga selection. I’m sorry… I couldn’t control myself! Here are the volumes I picked up. A. I. love you,…

Black Bullet vol. 1: Ground level

What a cruel world. A boy, runaway from his foster family, sits alone on the corner of a cracked road. Starving, unable to fully grasp the situation at hand or the environment he is in. This boy, a mere 7 or 8 years old, surveys the scene. He sees people everywhere. Others starving in the…
