Flagtime is a very interesting. Moritani is socially awkward. She usually uses her ability to stop time to run away from people or observe her surrounding. Murakami is a popular girl, who’s very straight forward. I love the development in the manga and how their relationship is building. The character development is amazing so far. This is one of those manga that you must read. The story is very sweet. It’s kinda sad to see that such an amazing manga is so underrated. So go check it out. I’m already a fan-girl of this manga! xD

Kiniro Mosaic is a very entertaining anime about a British girl that goes to study in Japan. The Japanese main character is fascinated with the English culture while the British girl is fascinated with the Japanese culture. That’s what the comedy in this anime revolve around. Also since the main characters are all girls and its a show about friendship, there is always these yuri moments. The anime was hilarious at first but then it got kinda funny. The anime is not bad nor Great. There is nothing there that it would make it a must watch but it is entertaining. If you want something easy to watch and would make you laugh you should watch this.
Overall Rate: 7/10

I was looking forward to Blood Lad, and it wasn’t disappointing. It was a bit too short though. the anime is only 10 episodes. They were awesome 10 episodes though. The most interesting thing about the anime were the fights. The characters were pretty interesting as well, specially wolf & Liz. The anime is very entertaining. Its funny, a little dramatic and most importantly its full of action!
The only problem was that I’ve read the manga so I couldn’t help but compare it to the manga. The anime didn’t do the manga any justice. So I recommend If you liked the anime, go and read the manga. The anime is good but the manga is great!

When I read the title of that anime I imagined something different. The anime was recommended to me by a lot of people. They all said it was good, they didn’t mention anything else about it. It was good!!
I so regret not watching this anime when it was first released. The title got me fooled. It’s the most refreshing anime I’ve seen for a while now. By refreshing I mean great action, right amount of comedy and drama, and most importantly it was based on good morals and doing the right thing. The anime is about a superhero show, thus it’s absolutely interesting. I liked how all the anime talks about all the heroes not just Tiger and Barnaby. Also the anime had a crazy ending, totally unexpected. There wasn’t anything that I disliked but, it left me wanting more. Even though the ending was good. I highly recommend it you won’t be disappointed.

The other day I was checking out what’s new in the manga world, when I came across this title. The manga is titled “Hero Mask” so I thought it’s going to be another corny hero manga. You see most hero manga are similar to one another. Anyways, I thought I should give it a try since its under “Seinen” genre. I’m glad I checked it out! It was so interesting!! They have a Hero club at school. Also, the manga is about self-development which is exactly why I love manga!! The characters have a cool idea about hero and justice which was nice. Even though they still haven’t had any serious action/fighting scenes, it seems like the manga has potential. I can’t wait to read the next chapter and I believe you should give it a try its pretty interesting. :D
