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.

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.

Haikyuu!! Seasons 1 & 2

   screen-shot-2016-06-09-at-16-37-13

For a long time, I felt like Haikyuu!! was grossly overhyped. But when Kuroko no Basket came to an end, I picked up the volleyball anime in an attempt to fill the void. It didn’t work. In fact, I was so turned off by the idea of Haikyuu!!, that it stayed on-hold on my list for over a year before I picked it back up. I even thought of dropping it at points. But man, am I glad I didn’t.

Kimi to Boku.

Boys (4)

It had been a while since I watched anime; lifestyle changes and coursework deadlines greatly contributed to that. But when I found myself in Asia, tired from spending long days in the heat and just wanted to unwind for a bit, there was little else to do. I searched the net for an easy-going, episodic anime to watch occasionally as I travelled the world. Something I could put on for 20 minutes before going out to dinner.

Another

Screen shot 2012-01-16 at 2.57.28 PM

I watched Another during the early hours when I couldn’t sleep. Perfect time for a horror, really. And honestly, I found it surprisingly satisfying to watch. It’s been a long time since I marathoned an anime, especially in a single night.

It’s shit: Guilty Crown.

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 09.02.38

By the time I managed to finish Guilty Crown, I couldn’t fathom what it was actually about.

I got interested in the anime through a few friends. Mostly they hated it, but there was one person who praised it above anything else, and I had to know why; curiosity got the best of me. There must be something worthy about a show that enforces such strong feelings in people, whether they are positive or negative. And when I learned who was behind this title, my interest peaked.
