On Re-watching Anime


In the spirit of revisiting old anime starting by re-watching Bleach, I continue on to attempt watching other old anime still in my possession. Let me repeat, attempt to watch.

From Anime To Manga


I’m primarily an anime watcher. For the lack of a proper word, let’s use the word “watcher” for now. To further elaborate, I’m more inclined to watch the anime of any titles as long as there’s an anime version of it.

Favorite Kimi Ni Todoke Chapter So Far

I just read the most recent chapter of Kimi ni Todoke yesterday, which is Chapter 74. It’s good as usual and did enough to satisfy my monthly dose of the series. With that, in all 74 chapters of Kimi ni Todoke I read so far, my favorite chapter is still the 50th chapter – You’re Too Loud.

Kimi ni Todoke Manga: Volume 1

Kimi ni Todoke is no stranger to a lot of shoujo anime and manga fans out there. It has established itself as one of the best shoujo material there is at the moment. Sweet, fluffy and filled with heartwarming stories, Kimi ni Todoke has earned itself a good place in hearts of many fans including myself. If you haven’t heard of this title, please allow me to briefly tell what Kimi ni Todoke is about.

(Turn the copy of my manga to the back and began to type…)

Sawako Kuronuma is the perfert heroine…for a horror movie. With striking similarities to a haunting movie character – jet-black hair, sinister smile and silent demeanor – she’s mistakenly called Sadako by those around her.

But then the most poplar boy in class befriends her, she’s sure to make more than just that – she’s about to make some enemies too!
