On, yet, another article of “cute girls doing cute stuff” comes an anime series that intends to show just that. Comic Girls caught my attention this late and it took a good number of memes, adorable GIFs and clips to get me convinced in watching it.

After drawing flak from the vast corners of the community, Darling in the FRANXX has received so much criticism for its story and characters.

Mainly due to the fact that a bunch of young girls battling in a war versus evil with the power of friendship is not exactly my cup of tea. However, over the course of recent years, there has been a slight shift to this genre and that is the deconstruction trend gaining more popularity among viewers. Mahou Shoujo Site is no different.

Tsurezure Children: drowning in rom-com and characters

ANIME, FIRST LOOK – After being heavily recommended by friends, the anime series “Tsurezure Children” is now part of the short list of anime that I’ve watched out of the long list of anime which I haven’t. While it does give me some sort of entertainment and lives up to its genre of a romance-comedy, I can’t help but feel lacking from how it formats its episodes.
