Saekano Flat – 04: why Utaha can never end up with Aki
 This was among the best Saekano episodes I’ve seen, not because of the fanservice, but because of the actual plot progress of the series. It’s all the more heartbreaking because the series is supposed to be funny, but that’s the beauty of ‘light’ series: they hit harder...

What makes Megumi Katou beautiful
 I was picking my brain on the reasons why I liked both Oregairu and Saekano, and I realized that the central reason was that Megumi and Hachiman are so similar to each other: they provide the stability in their fickle clique, and often act as the ‘catchers in the rye:’ they quietly struggle...

Kimi no Na Wa: must-watch cinema
 I’ve watched Kimi no Na wa after all the hype has died down. In fact, I wouldn’t have watched it if not for my sibling’s invitation yesterday. I’ve grown to dislike Makoto Shinkai’s works because they were depressing without any source of redemption. Your Name is different....

Baka-raptor is awesome!
 It took me five years, but I actually got the book he sent through Fed Ex as his gift. Opal Mehta is an okay book, but it fell apart by its end. Please visit baka-raptor.com for awesome posts. 🙂

Usagi Drop: on the Yukari and Daikichi non-romance
 You read that right. I think the manga ending was great. B-b-but muh incest! It’s probably because I’m an abnormal person, but I think the second half of the manga wasn’t bad. To me, the manga was short from being a masterpiece because of one relationship: it’s the one between...

Shimoneta: a masterpiece hidden inside dirty jokes
 Introduction Ever since I went over to the dark side, I knew that anime had something more for me than magical fights and Pokemon. I knew it when I became emotionally invested in the heroes of Gundam Wing. However, all my parents saw were robots fighting. I needed to prove to myself that anime was [...

Honeymoon Salad: one of the best
 This is in my top three manga of all time. Honeymoon Salad really is, to me, that good. I advise people who do plan to read this series to read Baby Leaf first, however. Baby Leaf is the prequel to Honeymoon Salad, and introduces one to the reason why the three main characters live such []

Umi no Misaki: the anti-harem
 Umi no Misaki is surprisingly good. While, of course, it doesn’t rank as well when compared to universally-acclaimed series, it’s among the top three in all the harem series I’ve read. It’s also just a really good manga. There are many reasons as to why, but I think the foremost...

Love in the time of anime harems
 I’m going to be 30 years old in a few years. I can no longer call myself young, except with the words ‘at heart.’ I still like anime. Back when I was half my age, anime was the way I coped with the stresses of high school. I made a few friends by shamelessly bringing []

Prison School c. 209-211 impressions
 I tackled the character development of Mari with regard to her misandry in my last post. Although Mari is still, quite definitely, wary of men, she recognizes Kiyoshi’s ability and has grown very reliant on him. He had literally died during chapter 209, because Hana, in an act of desperation, not...

Mari x Kiyoshi: pictures paint a novel
 I have committed a grave error against Mari in my write-up yesterday. Redditor necktie_13 mentioned that most of Mari’s reactions with regard to Kiyoshi were unspoken, and that led me to a gaffe in analysis. Because I’m very used to textual analysis, I didn’t pay too much attention...

Transactional psychology in Prison School, or, why Chiyo will win
 I. Introduction It has been more than six months since my last anime-related blog post. I have as much consistency as a schizophrenic does with his thinking. It’s been a few years since I have written volubly regarding anime. I’m not making any excuses: it’s not as if it’s surprising...

Cure (1997 film): among the best horror films I’ve seen
 I’m not a big fan of horror films. I’m tired of the genre’s reliance on in-your-face spooks and special effects. I’ve watched Cure twice, however. It’s undeniably a horror film, but the events that occur within it are situated in the real world. It’s also a mentally-challenging...
