Thoughts on Nijiiro Days


Aside from male dominated sports anime, rarely do I pick up a series with male lead characters and actually enjoy watching it. Nijiiro Days, or Rainbow Days, is one of the rare anime series led by four bishounens that I had a lot of fun watching.

So what made Nijiiro Days so special? How is it different from other male led slice-of-life anime?

Thoughts on Yowamushi Pedal: The Movie

Yowamushi Pedal: The Movie

For those who watched Yowamushi Pedal anime series and enjoyed the thrills of its inter-high competition might be disappointed with this movie as I did. This movie takes place after the inter-high competition and the different school teams once again gathered to participate in a smaller scale race. Here’s one fact: Not all characters from the series will make appearance in the movie.

Before I go on any further, let me warn you that I don’t attempt to not spoil it for you.

Thoughts on Boku dake ga Inai Machi


Endless eight. Steins;Gate. A lot of words relevant only to anime fans popped up in my head when I watched the first episode of Boku dake ga Inai Machi, or also known as Erased. Fujinuma Satoru’s revival threatens to repeat events over and over again since he’s reliving the past with chances of changing them.

Thank goodness none of events were repeated and Satoru’s revival still happens.

Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū: Shin vs Bon

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

There are two things very obvious at the start of Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku did not live til old age and Kikuhiko did not end up with Miyokichi. And these are the two things that would pop up in my head trying to figure out the how and why as I continue watching the series.

Both abandoned at young age and apprenticed by Yakumo to study rakugo, Sukeroku (Shin) and Kikuhiko (Bon) have a lot in common only on the surface. In reality, these two men couldn’t be more different.
