Sola

Published by:

Sola is a show I picked randomly while snowed in. I had no expectations going into the show but I saw drama tags and a few others and thought it was going to be a slow meandering show but then there was another tag that caught my attention. Supernatural.

Yorito has an unexplained obsession with the sky. He loves taking pictures of the sky at different times of day. Sunsets, sunrises, the clouds and anything sky related. On one of his early morning trips to try to get pics of the sunrise he bumps into an awkward girl who seems to be fighting with a vending machine when her tomato juice gets stuck. Yorito helps the strange girl but while he has his back turned she disappears. This mysterious girl is surrounded in mystery and Yorito wants to figure out who she is. Continue reading

Monster List (Yaoguai Mingdan)

Published by:

Monster List is an anime out of China. It’s in the same format as Cupid’s Chocolate where every episode is about 12 minutes. I assume that’s a thing for them. I have not done much research into China’s anime scene.

A foxy tempress, a tree demon, a girl with goddess powers and one guy in between them. Feng Xi would be the unwitting hero of this story. Drawn into situation after situation with these girls, he learns to adjust to his new life. One where he must preserve the peace and seemingly save the world at the same time. Continue reading

KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!)

Published by:

Konosuba is a show that I was going to pass on but I started watching. Was not impressed at first but the show kind of grows on you. And it seriously grew on Japan because it started getting the top rank in Japanese polls after a few weeks.

Satou is a hikikomori who’s life came to an end in a traffic accident. At least that’s what he thought but he woke up in front of a girl who called herself a goddess. She offers him the chance to go to another world but he can only take one thing with him. He couldn’t think of anything so he answered by saying he’d take HER. And so the journey begins, an adventure where the reborn Satou and the goddess must now slay the Demon King. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

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.
