What J.J Abram’s Hollywood adaptation of “Your Name” means to anime

DISCUSSION – During the month of September, of this year, we got an announcement that Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams have received rights to adapt the anime film, Your Name, and give it a place in Hollywood. The reactions of this announcement from the anime community was, in majority, somewhat negative – and honestly, I cannot blame the fans.

How Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale falls short

DISCUSSION – After waiting for a few months, I finally had the opportunity to go and watch Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale – an anime film set on events after its main series. Despite enjoying the film, I find myself somewhat dissatisfied and wished that the film would have tried to go all out with its story progression – which is something I want to talk about here.

If you have not watched this film and do not take kindly to spoilers, avert your eyes! With that warning in, let us dive in.

Finding meaning in something that is lost (OWLS Blog Tour)

As someone new to this, it is a great pleasure to be participating in the 8th OWLS Blog Tour. Last Monday, Zoe from Let’s Talk Anime talked about self-acceptance in the film, A Silent Voice. If you have not had the pleasure of reading it, I suggest you should give the article a few moments of your time. Thanks and I hope that this article will pique your interests.


“Treasure” Blog Tour

There are moments in our lives where we lose our sense of self-worth and value and as a result, we find ourselves deep in darkness or drowning in the ocean. However, every person in this world is a treasure—we treasure ourselves or we are treasured by others—and at times, we may need to be reminded of that.

 

For this month’s topic, we will be exploring pop culture characters who have suffered from mental illnesses, depression, and/or suicide. We will be discussing how these individuals cope with these issues, the reasons for their emotions, and how they handled the situations they are in.

How Sarada and Boruto are different from their fathers

ANIME, DISCUSSION – After watching a good amount of Boruto: Next Generations, it seems that the series is trying to tell its story in a different way specifically on the paths that Sarada and Boruto take.

This will contain some spoiling details for people who haven’t went and catch up with the Boruto series so you better shy away from this article if you don’t take kindly to that kind of detail.

The things I will be talking about here are mostly centered on where the anime series is thus far and how far I know about the manga series, as well as the recent Boruto-related movies. If I miss anything, feel free to point it out in the comments below.

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.

Shimoneta: what if the concept of dirty-jokes doesn’t exist?

ANIME, DISCUSSION – Throughout the times, settings for anime shows have been getting wilder and interesting as the years go by. Ranging from a deconstruction of the mahou shoujo genre to the concept of clothes being an alien weapon of mass destruction, anime series shines when it comes to putting something new on the table.

The anime series, Shimoneta, does this with its idea of “what if a world existed where the concept of dirty jokes is outlawed?

So, we ask the question: what if such were the case for us in the real world?

Top 5 Anticipated Shows of the Summer Season

ANIME, DISCUSSION – As the spring season comes to an end, a new one opens filled with interesting titles that may or may not become the best of this year. Personally, the spring season had a few letdown titles and I was left with only two shows completed and the others on hold (I will get on them eventually).

Without further ado, allow me to list down five shows which I’m itching to watch this summer season.

Guilty Crown: why it was a pain yet entertaining watch

ANIME, DISCUSSION – If you have been following the ramblings I have on Twitter, I am pretty much mixed when it comes to watching and talking about the anime series, Guilty Crown. It’s one of those shows wherein I just say it’s good and all, then say otherwise after a few episodes. All of my opinions about it are mixed and for good reason.

This will probably end up as a rant, so fair warning. Also I think this counts as a review (ish).
