The Fruit of Grisaia/The Labyrinth of Grisaia/The Eden of Grisaia

Published by:

So I finally decided to watch the Grisaia trilogy again. Well it’s not truly a trilogy since it’s a 13 episode first season, a 45 minute movie and then a 10 episode second season. That movie could have been chopped into a few episodes and merged into the second season. Let’s get into it.

The Fruit of Grisaia/Gurizaia no Kajitsu starts out like a typical harem anime. You meet the guy and some of the girls and the others stat coming into the picture. This first season follows Yuuji and his integration nto an all girls academy. Along the way he meets some really odd girls who each have their own issues. Yuuji’s mission is to help the girls with their issues which of course leads to forming bonds and getting him to break out of his own shell. If you’re only looking for your typical harem anime then you will want to stop here, the rest of the series takes a more serious turn though t still has comedy since comedy is part of the harem formula.

God Eater is FINALLY Back

Published by:


So God Eater is back and looks as good as it did before but how is the content? Well God Eater is a good looking show with great music but some episodes were lacking. It was like one week up and one week down…when it actually aired. The first 9 episodes were on last spring but you would get an episode and then the next might be delayed for 2 weeks. it was not a good showing for God Eater but it was moved around because special events and other random things.

Episode 10 was a major flashback episode which to me lacked something. It just didn’t feel like the same show. But episode 11 was an A. Might be the best episode so far. God Eater was scheduled for 13 episodes so there’s only 2 more left. Though with all the time that has passed, most people probably need to go back and watch the first 9.

Houkago Play

Published by:

This is one that came up as similar to Ojojojo so I checked it out too. Ojojojo is a lot more of a heartwarming type comedy/gag manga where Houkago Play is…well some type of comedy but I personally got very few laughs out of it. I try to keep my feeling about something towards the end but there isn’t much to say about this one. I guess it was kind of popular among the otaku since the girlfriend has gotten several statues made. Continue reading

LovePig (Rabuta)

Published by:

The Cool Kyoushinsha reading continues. Rabuta is about a girl who for some reason is in love with the school’s biggest delinquent. They’re polar opposites on top of that. His nickname or what the others in class call him is “white pig” because he’s tall, bald and fat but the girl is tiny. She keeps telling him that she likes him and he keeps resisting but she slowly wears him down and it turns into a decent little story.

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha (Demon Queen and Hero)

Published by:

Heroes slaying Demon Kings go hand in hand when it comes to anime and that’s exactly where this anime starts off. So a hero is sent to the demon realm to slay the Demon King and what he encounters is definitely not what he was expected. He runs into a buxom beauty claiming to be the Demon King. They go back and forth since he has a problem believing that she is the one everyone is afraid of. Instead of an epic battle, she engages him in conversation about how war does not benefit either way. This leads them down a path that neither one could have imagined. Continue reading

Komori Can’t Decline (Manga)

Published by:

A lot of you will be familiar with Shuri from her anime this past season. It was a short show at only about 2 minutes but it was a good introduction to Shuri and her friends. You’ll see that the anime came directly from the source material. Since it’s a 4koma, they extend situations to fit on the big screen but sometimes it was like watching the show again.

Shuri is a junior high school girl who can’t refuse any request no matter what it is. You wouldn’t be able to tell she’s young since she’s well developed compared to the others, she looks more like a teacher than their friend. But she is an innocent girl who just likes helping people. If anyone needs something, they go to Shuri. It works in another way too. If someone says they want her to pass a test, one she’s normally have issues with, then she’ll do it. Continue reading
