Where Oreimo went wrong

DISCUSSION – With the release of the new anime series, Eromanga-sensei, it made me draw comparisons between this series and Oreimo. The same format – we’ve got an unreasonably nice big brother who has a brat of a sister that doesn’t appreciate what he does for her. However, I would like to believe that Eromanga-sensei is doing it better (so far) than Oreimo. In Oreimo, the little sister Kirino is depicted as … Continue reading Where Oreimo went wrong

Attack on Titan 2 – Episode 4

REACTION – In this episode, we are finally given some sort of answer when it comes to what happened in the castle before the Scouts were attacked by Titans and what is the deal with Ymir. The scouts were resting up for the night. The castle tower was full of contraband and the scouts helped to themselves. What’s really interesting was when Reiner interrogating Ymir about … Continue reading Attack on Titan 2 – Episode 4

Sagrada Reset – Episode 2

REACTION – I am extremely infuriated about this episode right now. Not only does it feel too absurd, it’s going at a ridiculously faster pace than usual. The first episode had a slower pace which was both boring but acceptable given the genre, but right now, it’s just out of whack. The episode’s main event was to help out Mari and persuade her mother not to … Continue reading Sagrada Reset – Episode 2

Tsuki ga Kirei – Episode 3

REACTION – This episode was just an adorable sequence of events – the highlight of the entire episode. Tsuki ga Kirei delivers another great episode with just depicting real life adolescent romance and that is some good writing, right there. It is the middle of midterm exams. Akane’s track meet a few days afterwards and a school trip a few days after that. In the first parts of … Continue reading Tsuki ga Kirei – Episode 3

She realizes the need for this after not performing as well as she hoped in an interview with the local TV station.

Tsuki ga Kirei – Episode 2

REACTION – Nothing particularly big happening in this episode. As the sports festival begins, the school is riled up with all the common sports events being organized. The episode shows off what this series does best and that is the portrayal of adolescence in middle school. Kotarou somewhat displeased about having to participate in sports event considering his lack of athleticism. He does whatever odd jobs … Continue reading Tsuki ga Kirei – Episode 2

Eromanga-sensei – Episode 2

REACTION – Welcome to the second episode of “It’s not Oreimo, what are you talking about, Onii-chan? B-b-baka!” the anime series.

Since he has decided to make writing as a source of income, he has been dishing out one manuscript after the other in order to get at least … Continue reading Eromanga-sensei – Episode 2

Attack on Titan 2 – Episode 3

REACTION – For the past two episodes, Attack on Titan’s second season has been giving us some interesting information about the creation of the walls, the Order of the Wall cult, and some of the characters’ backstories – which is something that wasn’t really focused in the first season since it was mostly about Eren, Mikasa and Armin setting their place in the Survey Corps. At … Continue reading Attack on Titan 2 – Episode 3
