Review:

So after watching the anime I was psyched to watch the movie. Slice of Life anime are always great. The movie is a completion of an untold part of the story in the anime. Its something that I wondered about watching the anime so I was really glad that the movie told that story. I highly recommend that you watch the anime before watching the movie. I really enjoyed learning more about Ohana and her mother in that movie. You will also enjoy the movie even if you haven’t watched the anime. Though I still recommend the anime first. Both the anime and movie are great it would be a shame to miss out on either of them. So make sure to check out the movie and anime.

Review:

I’m a huge fan of [Slice of Life] anime. Hanasaku Iroha has an amazing story. Its so heart warming and very beautiful. The story is about family, friendship, change, love and hard work. You won’t be able to have enough once you start the anime its just beautiful. Specially how different characters blind in together and how they can work together to achieve their own goals. Also, how a place that helped them meet each other hold certain values to those people. I very much recommend this anime, you won’t regret it and you will wonder why did it take you this long to watch it. Its a great anime.

[Sora Iro] Kiniro Mosaic - 01[720p][0B41CB85].mkv_snapshot_20.33_[2013.07.12_21.12.45]

Review:

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.

BloodLad_poster

Review:

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!

Tiger...Bunny.full.578312

Review:

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!!

Tiger...Bunny.full.576718
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.

Review:

I finished watching Oregairu a while ago, around the beginning of the month to be exact. The anime is a comedy as it says in the genre. It’s pretty funny, and entertaining. I think they missed calling it psychology, because the main character seems to hate the wold and is always opinionated. The anime has a very interesting point of view on things and I really enjoyed it.
Yukino is the best ever. I’m totally a fan. She adds this charm to the anime. Totally adore her. Over all the anime was very good. It surprised me a lot of times. It was never predictable. It always kept me wanting more. So you see it’s awesome! I highly recommend it!

20130707-034333.jpg

Review:

This manga had such an innocent story. Its so cute, and I couldn’t stop myself from reading it weakly. I can’t say it’s your typical Shoujo Ai, because the story was actually beautiful. It’s about breaking through people’s walls. Also this was one of the few manga’s with a lot of fillers. I mean there is chapter 1.5, 2.5, 3.5…..etc. I liked the flow of this manga. Also the only thing that was actually close to making that manga a Shoujo Ai, is that picture above the review. Other than that it was a nice story about friendship. Is it recommended?! Yes go read it.
