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.
This post is slightly overdue as we’ve already entered into summer! But, as usual I want to recommend some shows that are good for watching during these summer days. Many of us are out of school and university, and have some extra time to kill, while some are working. Personally, I’m both (: Still, I plan on taking lots of time to catch up on anime I’ve wanted to watch for a long time.
On this list I’m recommending shows that are well suited for a holiday, both short one-cour ones along with some longer ones that require more time to finish. For those of you who read my blog way back when (before it was lost and I had to restart), might recognise some of the shows from last year’s list, but there will be new additions!Read more
