In my first full review in nearly a year, I look at another film from director Keiichi Hara. Miss Hokusai is no Shin-chan, but she might be just as brash.
Today I review a series about a young Japanese girl going to work in 19th century France. So maybe it’s not that kind of labyrinth, but Paris can be a strange and confusing place if you’re used taking baths and having miso soup for breakfast.
According to several religious traditions, reincarnation isn’t so much about what you want, but what you deserve. It might be tempting to curse your lot in life but ensuring a better tomorrow depends entirely on how you live today.
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.
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.
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.
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!
We’ve all wanted to correct a mistake from our pasts, but how many of us are so keenly aware of the exact moment we could have saved someone’s life? The best I can do is wish I had picked up a copy of FMA: Brotherhood before the license ran out!
Remember that time in high school when you met that person you really couldn’t stand, but you liked her best friend and she liked yours? No? Well pretend you do because I can’t say this anime portrays the situation realistically if you don’t.
