Yuuri’s Bishies

As with every sports anime I’m making the hot guys post. It’s been a long time coming; because Yuri!!! on Ice is something to be celebrated. It’s filled with handsome characters and some of them are gay(!). I don’t think there will be any surprises here.

NB! Since Yuuri belongs with Victor, I won’t be including the compatibility score in this post.

7. Otabek Altin

Otabek is here because he’s handsome, and quirky. He doesn’t fit in with the norm, but that doesn’t matter. He does things his way and he does it while looking hot.

It’s Shit: Orange (An Anime Review)

I read the manga for Orange as soon as it had published its last chapter. I found it somewhat underwhelming and I thought the art looked funny. But it was all right. A fairly short read, and I ended up giving it 6/10.

Not long after, I went and watched the anime. I expected a similar experience, but it ended up being quite the spectacle. I had a lot to say about this show.

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club vs Free! Eternal Summer

I’m not that fond of making videos myself, but I just love writing the scripts for them, and it seems a waste to write them and then have them shelved in a folder of my laptop for all eternity. So here is a video I made about Free! The good news is, since the recording of this video I have gotten better at editing and I have learnt how to enhance audio and reduce background noise, which means that my next video will be of slightly better quality. Here’s to improving. Hope y’all enjoy or something.

Fall Anime 2016: Wrap-up

It didn’t take long before I realised I picked up way too many shows than I had time for. Which is why I won’t attempt to follow the next season, or any other seasons probably. I leave that to the pros. (What I will be doing, is continuing to write reviews of the anime I watch, as well as more in-depth breakdowns of narrative structure – I am a writer after all).

I honestly enjoyed a lot of the anime I checked out at the start of this season, but I struggled to keep up with them on a regular basis. In the end there were two shows I followed to the end, and that was mostly by accident. I tried to be ruthless, and had to drop over half as well. The rest wound up in my to-watch list.

Anyway, here’s what I’ve been watching this season, and my current thoughts on them (with some new additions).

Review: Kimi no Na wa (Your Name)

thumb-1920-736462

Makoto Shinkai might be one of the greatest talents of modern day, and as a writer and anime fan myself, I don’t say that lightly. He has deemed us all worthy of this marvellous feat that is Kimi no Na wa (Your Name), and it’s exactly a film like this that makes me grateful to be alive. The story is the true masterpiece here; Shinkai shows mastery in the art of writing, managing to interweave multiple storylines into one bigger picture. This is a film about love, but also so much more.

Fall Anime 2016: First Impressions

It’s that time of year again, and this time I am on it! The fall season of 2016 has brought us a series of new anime, some promising and some trash, as per usual. I found that the overall quality is low, but there are a couple of gems between the masses. So here’s a rundown of the shows I’ve seen so far and what I think of them.

All Out!!

allout01

Episodes seen: 1

The two main characters are obnoxious and the art style is an eyesore. I thought I could look past the visuals at least, since I’ve felt this way about every sports anime in the past, but man, I don’t know. The voice acting is a bit off as well. In my experience, sports anime need a lot of warming up to, so I’ll try to stick with it, but I’m honestly not sure this one is going to be that great.

Prediction: 5/10 

Cheating Craft

Episodes seen: 1

I don’t. what?

This is the stupidest premise I’ve seen in a long time.

Prediction: 4/10 

Dream Festival!

Hinata’s Bishies

It’s time for another list of attractive sports anime characters, and this time I’m pulling out the cast from Haikyuu!! to find the hottest guys. Now, this one is tricky, because there are a lot of characters in this anime. Luckily, all the cute ones are mostly on the Karasuno team itself, so it makes things a bit easier. Without further ado, here are the hottest guys of Haikyuu!!, complete with their compatibility with the main character, Hinata.

#10: Kozume Kenma

kenma-1

I really like Kenma because I can relate to him so much. He’s shy and unsociable, and prefers spending time playing video games rather than seeing his friends. However, his dynamic with the team shows a trust between characters that really speak to the heart. And his friendship with Hinata is adorable!

Compatibility with Hinata: 8/10
