A lot of people are doing some retrospective posts for the year around this time, and considering that I just completed my goal, this post will be sort of similar. I half expected to not be able to write this post, and it may have come down to the wire, but I can proudly proclaim that the challenge I set for myself this year has been successfully completed!
I’ve Got 99 Souls but a Witch ain’t One – A Soul Eater Review
“A sound soul dwells within a sound mind, and a sound body.” It sounds like the mantra of some Zen teaching, but it’s the opening lines of an anime that takes you for a thrilling fantasy ride. My final review for the year is a one-of-a-kind anime series.
Fishing for Requited Love – A Lull in the Sea Review
This year has seen a lot of change. I started this blog and met a bunch of amazing people, but outside of my personal bubble the world has seen some pretty drastic shifts. At least we don’t have to deal with salt flakes falling from the sky.
I don’t want to see any more things that’ve changed! It’s exhausting!
FullDive into New Territory – A Sword Art Online II Review
Because the internet doesn’t have nearly enough opinions about Sword Art Online, I’ve done you all a favor and thrown my hat in as well. But seriously, above all the flame wars, there is always something to be said about this franchise.
Which came first, the Spirit or the Egg? – A Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit review
A plot to kill a young prince, a spear wielding bodyguard who vows to protect him, and the fabled rebirth of a spirit from the egg inside him. A prince hosting an egg might sound strange, but male seahorses carry their eggs too, you know.
But there are some people who do more than they have to for what they get in return
Band Practice for the End of the World – A Sound of the Sky Review
Today I look at a series where a girl who wants to learn the trumpet joins an army where she and other young women can can operate futuristic super tanks in a real war instead of just a popular school elective. Because, why not? Anime has done stranger things.
Single Romdo Female Seeking Masked Monster – An Ergo Proxy Review
Bernie Siegal once said “If God had made a perfect world, it would be a magic trick, not creation, with no meaning or place for us to learn and create. Mankind is not yet ready for a perfect world. We do not know how to appreciate perfection.” If that’s not a great way to start talking about Ergo Proxy, well then you write an intro.
A Rare Touch of Realism in Anime – An Usagi Drop Review
As I get older I sometimes think about adding a new member to our little Super Otaku Busters club. Seeing shows and movies about how terrible children are usually delays my longing for a bit, but every once in a while a series comes along that makes me wish I had a little otaku of my own to teach.
Was Marty McFly in an Anime? – An ERASED Review
Making your mark on the world and being remembered is something people spend their entire lives trying to accomplish. But if all your efforts only benefit others, can you say that you’ve left a mark at all?
The future is always blank. Only your willpower can leave footsteps there.
Improbable Friends, Impulsive Dreams, and Trust in Panties – The Pet Girl of Sakaurasou Review
Today I review a series that explores the age old battle of hard work vs. talent. No, I’m not talking about Rock Lee and Neji from Naruto. The competitive world of Arts majors is much more dramatic and unpredictable than your shounen anime. Believe it!
